Would you sign your kid up for a clinical trial - cardcrimson - 01-28-2021

Saw that Moderna is looking for kids to participate in a clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy for teens. Would you sign your kid up? Apparently, 2/3's get the vaccine, 1/3 gets the placebo.

The risk of serious illness from Covid in a child is incredibly low. The risk of an issue from exposure to a small portion of the Covid genome and the spike protein is likely even lower. So yes is the answer.
