Babies and toddlers next: Pfizer, Moderna receive EUA for COVID shot for kids 6 month to 5 years
(NaturalHealth365) Are we surprised at this point? Breaking news from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): the gene-based COVID shots made by Big Pharma household names Moderna and Pfizer (the latter of which earned a whopping $37 billion in 2021 thanks to its pandemic profit-making vax) are now authorized for use in babies and kids under five years old – a demographic known to have a low risk of serious illness from SARS-CoV-2.
FDA greenlights COVID shots for kids under five, babies at least 6 months old, citing questionable data
According to a June 17, 2022 press release from the FDA, “[t]he agency determined that the known and potential benefits of the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines outweigh the known and potential risks in the pediatric populations authorized for use for each vaccine.” For this reason, the FDA states, it has “authorized emergency use of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 to include use in children down to 6 months of age.”
This decision was made based on studies that typically had around two months’ worth of follow-up – hardly enough to catch any long-term safety signals. And as summarized by The Children’s Health Defense, there are also some serious questions about the data the FDA used to make its decision.
- The FDA seems to focus on the fact that COVID shots generate a significant antibody response in kids – as if this is in some way an appropriate proxy for “effectiveness.” However, the reality is that just because a child’s immune system has a significant response to a drug doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s beneficial for their health or offers any more protection against SARS-CoV-2 infection than what they’d have without the medication.
- High fever was a common effect of these drugs – which, according to Children’s Health Defense, is associated with neurodevelopmental problems like autism spectrum disorder.
- As is true in adults and children over five, the overall “effectiveness” of these shots was shown in clinical trial data to rapidly decline within days after the second dose, which begs the question: should parents be willing to inject their kids with a drug knowing that it’ll stop “working” within a matter of weeks – all the while exposing their kids to 100% of the “known and potential risks” of said drug?
Government and Big Pharma insist on COVID shots for kids – but are parents buying it?
Despite the assaultive propaganda surrounding the COVID shots and the FDA’s recent decision, it seems evident that parents of young kids simply aren’t convinced.
According to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation survey, fewer than 1 in 5 parents of kids under five are “eager” to get their kids injected with these drugs. Instead, a majority of parents surveyed (48 percent) said they are going to take a “wait and see” approach – which we can take to mean that they want to see how the shots affect other people’s kids before deciding whether to take the chance with their own children.
The same survey revealed that more than 1 in 4 (27 percent) of parents would “definitely not” expose their young kids to the COVID shot, and another 11 percent of parents will do so only if they are required, aka medically coerced.
And to that last point: it is just a matter of time before COVID shots will join the official childhood vax schedule outlined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)? Will parents be coerced into vaxxing their kids with these 2+ COVID shot doses in addition to the 70+ doses of OTHER shots already recommended from birth through 18?
Keep in mind that the number of shots that the government wants American kids to get today is about TRIPLE what it was back in the early 1980s, before the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act enacted by then-President Ronald Reagan, which granted immunity to vaccine makers so that they couldn’t be sued for illness, injury, or death caused by their products.
All this uncertainty. All this “potential” risk. Yet the FDA and CDC continue to insist that giving young kids multiple shots at once – which now apparently includes the COVID-19 shot – is safe and effective and does not pose any risk of chronic health problems.
