CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation (a nonprofit which grants wishes to terminally ill children), Richard Davis, said in a video that only children who are fully vaccinated may get their wishes if it requires air travel or if it requires a large gathering.
“We’ve approached this responsibility with a focus and diligence for your family’s health and safety,” said Davis.
The vaccine mandatory wishes allegedly come from the foundation’s guidance from doctors, the CDC, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
According to Davis, air travel wishes are set to resume as soon as September 15.
“All Wish participants including your wish kids and any siblings, will need to be two weeks past completion of either a one dose or two-dose vaccine,” he continued.
Children who are vaccinated will not be asked for proof. “An adult participant” must sign a waiver affirming they, any other minors participating in the wish, and the Wish kid are.
There isn’t any apparent distinction made if children under the age of 12 must receive the vaccine as it hasn’t been approved to be administered to them yet.
