Mila Kunis hopes vaccines for young kids are being delayed ‘for the right reasons’

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis think it’s funny that they don’t bathe their children or use soap in general. They think that if their kids swim in the pool or run through a sprinkler every other day, then that’s good enough. In a pandemic. But at least they’re pro-vaccine, I guess. Mila and Ashton attended the opening of the Lawrence J. Ellison Institute, in what was their first red carpet together in years. They chatted with People Magazine about how they hope to get their (unbathed) children vaccinated soon:

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are eagerly awaiting the day they can get their kids vaccinated. The couple shares daughter Wyatt Isabelle, 6½, and son Dimitri Portwood, 4½, and though the parents can’t get COVID-19 vaccines for them yet (the shots are only available for 12 and over at the moment), they look forward to the day when they can. Kunis, 38, revealed in late April that she and Kutcher, 43, got vaccinated.

Kunis told PEOPLE at the grand opening of the Lawrence J. Ellison Institute on Tuesday in Los Angeles that it’s frustrating being vaccinated when her kids can’t yet.

“That’s what we were talking about. Yeah, it is [weird], because every day you’re like, ‘I hear it’s going to be approved by X date,’ and then it gets pushed and it gets pushed, and you hope that it’s getting pushed for the right reasons and not just because someone wants to put their name on it,” she says.

“And who wants to be the parents that give their kid COVID and then gets their kid’s school shut down and keeps kids from being educated because they didn’t get vaccinated because the kid couldn’t get vaccinated,” adds Kutcher. “Even if you are vaccinated you still can get COVID and give it to your kid, and they can still get very sick and get the entire school shut down. Who wants to be that person? Nobody.”

I really feel for parents of young children, especially in the past two years. From home-schooling to masks-in-schools to vaccine eligibility to everything else… it’s been a lot. Mila’s comment is kind of weird though? “You hope that it’s getting pushed for the right reasons and not just because someone wants to put their name on it…” I think we’re way past that? The reason vaccine eligibility for children has taken so long is because scientists want to make sure that the vaccines are completely safe for children. It’s that simple. They’re trying to complete the trials now and the aim was to begin to vaccinate little kids hopefully by October/November.
