Thanks to both Donald Trump and Conservative media, there are many Americans that have decided against getting vaccinated against COVID-19. Thanks to them, the pandemic has been prolonged with the Delta variant developing.
Parents who were worried about their children contracting the illness got good news last month when a vaccine was approved for children. Unfortunately, anti-vaccine advocates are attempting to make it more difficult for them to get their kids the shot.
Pharmacies like CVS and Rite Aid have automated systems that allow parents to register their children for vaccines. Anti-vax activists are using these sites to book fake appointments.
PatriotTakes shared an example of this practice this weekend tweeting, “NYC antivaxxers are booking fake appointments for the covid vaccine just as the rollout for 5-11 year olds has begun.The name on this appointment? ‘Lesko Brandon.'” Let’s go Brandon, of course, has become a MAGA slogan for resisting the Joe Biden presidency.

Despite Conservative resistance, the vaccination of children could be the key to ending the pandemic.
