A man from upstate New York who argued against his 11-year-old daughter getting vaccinated for COVID-19 was ruled against after a judge sided with his ex-wife.
Donald Figer, who is a scientist and college professor “at one of the area’s premier institutions” – the Rochester Institute of Technology – asked his daughter’s mother to hold off on vaccinating her, making the argument that there haven’t been studies done on any long-term side effects, according to court filings cited by the New York Post.
His ex-wife, Jeannie Figer, re-opened their 2012 divorce case in an effort to ask the judge to overrule Donald’s objections. Monroe County Supreme Court Justice Richard Dollinger ruled on Jeannine Figer’s behalf.
Unbelievable. With all the known side effects of the vaccines, this judge just said the mother of an 11-year-old can get her vaccinated.
“Waiting — to be ‘sure,’ as the father asks — is simply untenable, when the specter of a killing or incapacitating disease is swirling in the environment surrounding this young girl,” the judge ruled on Friday. He add, “Scientists may never catch up to this ever evolving and elusive virus and variants.”
Dollinger ordered Jeannie to schedule an appointment for her daughter to get the shot immediately.
The jurist said he’s concerned about an uptick in cases in the county, which declared a state of emergency “as hospitals were filling with ill COVID patients.”
The judge noted that since Nov. 22, there were 2,643 new cases in Monroe County, “in which the child lives,” and a rolling seven-day average of 378 new cases per day — making it the second-highest in any region of the Empire State. -NY Post
Dollinger says he’s “somewhat perplexed that an accomplished scientist and professor would oppose a child vaccine authorized by the CDC and universally encouraged by state and local physicians and other health officials.” The judge also said that the risks from the vaccine are lower than the risks to the young girl if she caught COVID-19.
That I don’t believe at all. Kids don’t die from COVID. In fact, they get the sniffles in most cases.
“This court is unwilling to kick this can down the road,” wrote Dollinger. “It could be years before any researchers have exacting accounts of either the short or long-term consequences of the administration of this vaccine on 11-year-old girls with this child’s physiological makeup.”
According to court documents, the estranged couple’s other two daughters, who are aged 17 and 19, have already gotten the jab, and the 11-year-old “wanted to get the vaccine just like them.”
I can understand why the father wanted to wait and see. The CDC’s VAERS system shows the adverse effects for thousands of Americans. For example, VAERS data shows as of today, there are 10,409 people who now have permanent disabilities. There are 8.986 deaths that occurred by taking the vaccine.
