Unfortunately for you, there's no vaccine for stupidity.

Moderna announced Thursday that the company has asked the Food and Drug Administration to authorize a low-dose version of its COVID-19 vaccine as the first vaccine for children younger than age 5.

In a study involving about 6,700 children, the company said two-doses of the vaccine administered 28 days apart to children ages 6 months to less than 6 years triggered levels of antibodies equivalent to what has protected older children and adults.
I know nothing.
The vaccine appears to be about 51 percent effective for children ages 6 months to less than 2 years, and 37 percent effective for those ages 2 to less than 6 years, the company says.

"That means that you're going to reduce your chances of getting disease by about a half. That's very important for these kids," Dr. Paul Burton, Moderna's chief medical officer, told NPR in an interview.
Well, okay. Hopefully the data will become available.

I don't have the slightest idea how to balance that risk, but for a healthy child, I am not sure I would risk it until all of the data has been gone over in the sunlight.

All of the data should be made public except for patient ID information. Not just the data that Moderna wants to trot out on the back of a pony.
