There are a lot of mixed feelings out there now that the FDA has approved the use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 years old. Twelve-year-olds are one thing, but kindergarteners?

As we reported last week, Big Bird trended after posting on Twitter that he’d just been vaccinated for the coronavirus (Big Bird is supposedly 6). CNN then teamed up with Big Bird for a family town hall about the vaccine, featuring the network’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

It can make some kids nervous? What about parents?

Dr. Robert W. Malone isn’t impressed by the crossover of CNN and Sesame Street to market vaccines directly to children:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has already announced the nation’s first statewide COVID-19 vaccination mandate for schoolchildren, and San Francisco is already trying to nail down a date to apply the city’s vaccine passport to 5- to 11-year-olds.

We’ve already seen Gupta and his network smear Joe Rogan as taking “horse dewormer” — why should we trust them now?
