Does that really matter when the vaccines have shown 99% efficacy in the real world?

As I've previously stated I'm just quoting the guy in the video word for word.

I really do hope it won't be the case to get children vaccinated to be able to cruise. It is one thing for my husband and I to get it but there is absolutely no way will I get my teenage daughter to get vaccine. As I have expressed in a previous post, my fears are IF it causes infertility and no one knows the answer to that right now even though some have said it doesn't who actually 100% knows... no-one. So I would not risk it for my daughter so she has the choice about children in to the future. so its a deal breaker for us... no cruising at all if that is the case.

I thought that I might have missed something, but I did not.  I just checked on the Covid vaccine causing infertility.  NO EVIDENCE!  Where did u get this from?  Did you daughter get a measles, DPT, or a flu shot.  No more likelihood of infertility here.  My next cruise is 12/22 with my grandchildren, who have all had Covid and will all be getting vaccinated.  I will not be on a ship with your unvaccinated daughter!

Yeah my Daughter can get real Bad, Asthma, even a Smoker can set her Lungs off. Pneumonia and Bronchitis I've had at least 30 times. Influenza, not so sure always get my shot Sept/Oct. Every Cruise take never use Elevators, touch railings, doors or Chairs in Dining Room. Usually walking around ship w/long sleeve or Hoodie using my sleeve or napkin when have to touch things. Even when do eat at WindJammer I'm first through door when they open Lunch/Dinner. Six years ago my Grand Daughter turned one, several days before she threw up few times had little fever like most little ones do and she was teething. Couple days later she was well and had her Bday Party. As she was eating her own one yr Cake she offered me some as I ate it off her fingers, only one I'd do that for and hadnt seen her in 6months. Well can imagine what happened, down in bed for 4 nites in my Hotel with Noro type. Couldnt keep anything down. I've had multiple back surgeries and that sick was worse!

well looks like that won't be a problem .... as It certainly looks more likely my family won't be on any cruise with anyone...I am just not prepared to take the risk with my daughter so chose not to do it. if she then decides later in life to get it if it is still a requirement that will be her choice

If any are under 5, it isn't just a given a vaccine will be available by then. Seems likely, but absolutely not a sure thing.

As parents we all have to deal with possible risks to our children.  I understand your concern for your daughter.  As it stands now, however, it seems your daughter has greater risk for contracting COVID than becoming sterile from the vaccine.  Yes, the COVID risk is slim but it is still greater than the risk from the vaccine.  It definitely is tough to be a parent in today's world.

They will be 20 and 13.  Why dies that matter?  You are basing your assertion on something that you totally made up.  There is NO evidence that Covid vaccine causes infertility!

Our granddaughter 23 works at a hospital part-time while finishing her last year of college got both shots & I also am concerned for her. Don’t know down the road of what effects it could or could not have on fertility, only time will tell.

So in 2 years the 13 year old may or may not be vaccinated as it's not approved in children yet. If there is still no approval in 2 years and Royal allows children to sail unvaccinated do you stay home or go with them?

 

I have never said the vaccine causes infertility lol, I think you have that part confused with someone else. If it does though I guess I no longer need that vasectomy......

There is no evidence to show either way as it is too soon to be able to tell this with the vaccine.  Hence why we have chosen this way as once it is done can’t be reversed. We will continue to do all we can to protect ourselves from covid and live our lives too.

It’s just worrying times right now making sure you do what is right for each individual . But hopefully happy times will come soon when back to “normal”

It was me who posted about worrying about it causing infertility not the op. I have been reading up stuff to research vaccine and read something can’t remember where and speaking to other people who expressed same fears ... guess we just need to hope that it doesn’t... but as it too early to determine and side effects it will just be me and my husband who gets the vaccine for now

I gave the age that they will be in 2 years and there will be vaccines fir children by the first quarter of 2022 and possibly before as per Fauci and experts.  Trials on children have been going on for awhile.  I will not go on a cruise with unvaccinated people or children.  I will cancel if this isn’t resolved.  I WOULD  NOT Be the one taking my unvaccinated grandchildren on.  Will you?

If Royal allows it 100% yes.

Go over to the KSF thread and read about all those against your point of view.

Not for all children. And I would absolutely be the one taking my unvaccinated children on a cruise ship. For them, there is a greater risk from flu.
