Research links and discussion on mouthwash, gargling and SARS-COV-2 prevention

Senator Ron Johnson is taking quite a bit of flack over his remarks on mouthwash and SARS-CoV-2 prohibition. It is worth noting that Japan (which has a very low Covid19 death rate[1]) has a long history of gargling  povidone iodine (PVP-I) to prevent respiratory infections[2]. Some American physicians are also suggesting gargling could be helpful [3] especially for school children. Molecular iodine and other anti-septic mouthwashes are in use as SARS-COV-2 prohibition in dental practices across the US [4].  'Disrupting SARS-CoV-2 transmission' with mouthwash has been and is being actively studied at Dental schools and other research institutions across the US.[5]

First Month of Pediatric Covid Vaccination: Some select 'SYMPTOM_TEXT' stories and some stats

These are some select stories from the first month of Pediatric vaccinations in the US. There is a select group of syncope (fainting or 'loss of consciousness') in the little ones.
PRO TIP: Stay right by your kid before and after the vax. Vaccinate one kid at a time if possible. If they faint, don't let them fall and hit their head on the floor. Because then you have the child head injury on top of the child vaccine injury.  The HCW who are administering the pediatric injections are having some trouble confusing adult with pediatric dosing. Many kids are getting adult doses and adult saline preparation doses, among other administration errors. This doesn't seem to result in too much (immediate) injury. I guess. Maybe.
