I am disturbed that you let Stephanie Capote's statement about COVID vaccines and deaths of children stand as if it was fact. She said "look it up" and I did. Her numbers came from a tweet not the CDC. The truth is quite different, no deaths among children in the U.S. can be attributed to the vaccine. Many people will read your article and won't question her statement because the Patterson Irrigator printed it. That is just like retweeting misinformation, only worse. People need to hear FACTS in order to make good decisions and the newspaper should be one source they can rely on.
