Punching down is so woke.
Show me the math on your kid will die if they don't get the vaccine. Don't bother, you won't. Let's see, first Vaccines aren't magic binary switches (kinda like gender, magically nonbinary). You see a vaccine might, only might, work. So you don't get 100%, it's non-binary. You might only get 30% effectiveness. Secondly, what's the chance you'll get C19 in the first place? That's not 100% either, nonbinary. Then there's the chance that you are actually in the subpopulation of children that will have "severe" covid. That's non-binary, but getting fractionally small.
If "Scientist" could do Bayesian math and other evidence-based formerly known-as-science, instead of fascist authoritarian, "Obey me, I grovelled for my degree", we would have to fend off flat earthers.
Sorry, your professor was a moron and left out great chunks of the scientific method, such Sensitivity and Recall in your obedience lessons,
