this is absurd, talk about child exploitation, the parents that "volenteer" their kids to be subjects in an expermental vaccine should be prosecuted along with the researchers that are conducting these "trial" vaccines. this is child exploitation at its worst. as if it isnt clesr that the motive is money it is liken to child prostitution. wake up people whats wrong with "youall".a minor can not sign a contract so who is responsible? the parents and the researchers. what are the possible side effects? extreme discomfort, convulsions and possibly death?? i cant beleive this, goes to show you, the lack of intellengence.....
