Malingering teacher’s unions continue to clamor for COVID-related school closures — in fact, more than 4,500 schools are closed currently — but this time, they’re not getting the same backup they got previously from the Biden administration.

Today, on Fox News Sunday, CDC director Rochelle Walensky evinced little sympathy for the school closers.

“I want to remind people that in the fall of this year, we had a delta surge, and we were able to safely keep our children in school before we had pediatric vaccination,” said Walensky. “Fast-forward to now, and we have pediatric vaccination.”

Walensky is exactly right, and there isn’t even a serious response to her reasoning. When it comes down to it, the people pushing to turn COVID into a never-ending national slumber party evince a lack of belief in the efficacy of vaccination.

Given a less deadly variant of the virus and a more vaccinated population than at any point last year, school closures should be the last thing on anyone’s mind. What’s more, the risk of COVID to children, like the risk of its spread through children, has always been minuscule. The rare exceptions, children with immunocompromised conditions, are best protected by having the adults in their lives get vaccinated.
