California physician Dr. Houman Hemmati says risk analysis does not support vaccinating children, much less mandating COVID vaccines for children. Yet California is one U.S. state prepared to mandate COVID vaccines for kids, despite children being a low-risk group and vaccines doing little to stop transmission.

"When you think about that, if schools really were a place where paternalistic medicine were to be practiced, where you would have a center of safety and health for children rather than just the Center for Education, wouldn't we be focusing on the true killers of kids that we just mentioned?" Dr. Hemmati wondered.
