You are far from update on COVID research, Teacher64. It’s true children seemed to be not as vulnerable to the original strain of the virus. That’s not the case with the Delta variant. It’s more contagious to everyone, and the rates of children being infected, hospitalized, and dying are climbing. To say nothing of the serious post-COVID inflammatory issues that have afflicted many kids.
What’s more, they have been discussing the likelihood of needing boosters for months. You’ve clearly had your head…elsewhere.
It’s similar to the way you need a new flu shot each year, and they try to tailor the new shot to what they think the dominant flu virus will be. Because viruses change. They mutate. And science responds.
Oh, and those “experimental” vaccines? They’re building on decades of research on coronaviruses. They had a vaccine for canine coronavirus in 1991. They developed a vaccine for the first SARS (human coronavirus) that hit in 2002, but the virus died out, making it impossible to get funding for clinical trials.
