The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that a growing number of children are getting opted out of routine childhood vaccinations by their caregivers.
Dr. Amna Husain, a pediatrician and spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics, says this surge likely points to the growing skepticism toward the healthcare system. "There is a rising distrust in the health care system," Dr. Husain said, adding that vaccine exemptions "have unfortunately trended upward with it."
There is a rising distrust in the health care system.
The CDC says only 3% of children entering kindergarten in the 2022-2023 school year received a vaccine exemption from their respective state, the highest exemption rate ever reported in the U.S.
Forty states experienced an uptick in exemption rates, and 10 states – including Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Michigan, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, and Wisconsin – witnessed rates surpassing 5%. Meanwhile, more than 12% of children entering kindergarten in Idaho had a vaccine exemption in 2022. CDC epidemiologist and author of the report, Ranee Seither, said, "This is quite a jump."
This rise coincides with the rising skepticism about the Covid-19 vaccine. Dr. Mysheika Roberts, health commissioner for Columbus Public Health, explained, "So many people were reluctant to get that new vaccine." Hmm, I wonder if it has anything to do with all the sudden deaths, cardiac arrests, neurological problems, blood clots, and paralysis we've seen in recent years.
Whatever the case, there's no doubt that skepticism is growing. A Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) poll seemed to prove just how many people no longer want to listen to mainstream media talking points. Their survey revealed that one-third of adults believed Covid-19 mRNA vaccines caused "thousands of sudden deaths in otherwise healthy people." 10% deemed the notion "definitely true," while 23% considered it "probably true." 31% thought it was "definitely false," and another 34% believed it to be "probably false."
British historian Arnold Toynbee believes that harsh environments and problematic conditions become an incentive to awaken the creativity and imagination within the human mind. In this case, the pandemic ultimately put millions of people in a state of fear and panic, forcing many Americans to question their reality. Naturally, U.S. citizens looked for alternative media and conducted their own research. Much of the information they found conflicted with the narrative spewed by CDC and Big Pharma. The past three years have fueled skepticism and critical thinking throughout the country, and our healthcare system will have to work hard to regain the public's trust.
