It is widely acknowledged that healthy children have virtually zero risk of getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19. Even among potentially compromised data sources, there is ample evidence that "age makes a major difference in mortality risk," with children being the least at-risk population. A report from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children's Hospital Association estimated that 154 children died out of 1.4 million people diagnosed with COVID, as of December 3, 2020. That is 0.01%, which is likely overstated since many infections were not diagnosed. Even the CDC estimates the survival rate of 0 to 17-year-olds at 99.992% in their worst scenario. Further, a large study out of the UK confirmed that, "Most young people face an 'extremely low' risk of illness and death from Covid-19 and have no need to shield from the virus." The hypothetical that children could be more at risk of "long COVID," which is rare in adults, has no scientific backing.
Similarly, the reopening of schools for in-person learning largely occurred without incident. As reported by Scientific American, "Studies of school districts in states such as Florida, Utah and Missouri found that in-person instruction did not lead to a noticeable spike in COVID cases." A recent study from North Carolina found, "During the first nine weeks of in-person instruction in 11 school districts with nearly 100,000 students and staff, secondary transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infections was extremely rare." There were no reported cases of child-to-adult transmission. This strongly suggests that children do not present significant COVID risks to each other or to the adults around them.
This is consistent with many families' experiences. In my extended family, an in-home nanny caring for my nephews felt ill and tested positive after having been in their home, in close contact with the children, all week. Neither my nephews nor their parents tested positive. Another nephew came home from overnight camp with a positive test. He felt groggy for a day and then was back to his usual self. Neither his two siblings nor his parents got sick. My friend had a similar story in her family. These are anecdotes, but they also represent real-world data supporting the theory that children are not threatened by COVID nor a threat.
So why target children for an experimental drug when there is essentially no benefit to them?
Why force the shot on our kids when the data increasingly shows the potential harm that can come from it?
Can we trust the results that come out of Big Pharma's rushed clinical trials?
When we apply logic, we see that there is no justification for risking the health of our children for an illness that is not dangerous to them, variant or no variant. As discussed below, the main arguments for injecting children quickly and completely fall apart when subjected to reason and readily-available data.
The potential risks to children
With the relentless censoring of information critical of the shots, including reports of adverse reactions, it is difficult to see the full picture of the harm being caused by the shots. However, the longer the shots are around, the more time qualified professionals have to study its effects and the more data is collected.
As reported in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System and compiled by Children's Health Defense, for shot recipients aged 12 to 17 there have been over 12,000 adverse events, including 13 deaths, as of June 25, 2021. The week's data for the 12 to 17-year-old group shows:
- The most recent reported deaths include a 16-year-old girl (VAERS I.D. 1420630) who died four weeks after her second dose of Pfizer, a 17-year-old girl (VAERS I.D. 1420762) who experienced cardiac arrest six days after receiving a Pfizer vaccine, a 16-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1426828) who died four days after receiving a Pfizer vaccine and a 13-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1406840) who died two days after receiving a Pfizer vaccine.Other deaths include three 15-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1187918, 1382906 and 1242573) and two 16-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1225942 and 1386841) and one 17-year-old (VAERS I.D. 1199455).
- 1,792 reports of anaphylaxis among 12- to 17-year-olds with 99% of cases
attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine, 1.2% to Moderna and 0.2% (or four cases) to J&J.
- 300 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis (heart inflammation) with 296 attributed to Pfizer’s COVID vaccine.
- 52 reports of blood clotting disorders, 51 attributed to Pfizer and 1 attributed to Moderna.
This is in addition to incidents reported in the European Union as of June 26, 2021 via EudraVigilance, which include 168 cases in children under two years old. Both reporting systems are voluntary and recognized to capture a small percent of total adverse reactions.
While these effects are largely being ignored and dismissed by mainstream media, the CDC was forced by the prevalence of cases and studies to address the heightened risk of the myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the tissue surrounding the heart). At a June 23, 2021 meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, committee members acknowledged a “likely association” between these heart conditions in adolescents and young adults after receiving their second Covid-19 vaccine shot, citing more than 1,200 cases of myocarditis or pericarditis mostly in people under 30. Following the advisory committee meeting, the FDA directed Pfizer and Moderna to amend its fact sheets to include a warning about these potential dangers.
One such case is 18-year-old Isaiah Harris from Arkansas. Within 48 hours of his second Pfizer dose, Isaiah's heart began to hurt and he had trouble breathing. When seen at the hospital, "Isaiah’s EKG was abnormal and his numbers kept getting worse. At one point, 80% of Isaiah’s heart was inflamed and only 40% was functioning. Isaiah’s troponin levels were so high doctors said he had suffered a heart attack." The athlete, who had no pre-existing conditions, said, "I used to lift every day but for three to six months I cannot do any physical activity. The most I can do is walk my dog. If I get my heart rate up, it can reoccur and I could have another heart attack.” He said he would have rather gotten COVID.
There are also heartbreaking stories of adolescents being debilitated by the shots, like a 12-year-old girl from Ohio. Her parent writes:
My daughter has gone from being a typical healthy 12 year old girl who worried about doing well in school and loved hanging out with friends to being so ill she had to miss 4 months of school. She has been in the hospital for almost 2 months total where she celebrated her 13th birthday. She is the strongest person I know and I am so proud of her for pushing through this nightmare and never giving up. There is no doubt in my mind that the vaccine caused this. All of these medical problems started less than 24 hours after the second dose of the Pfizer covid vaccine and did not just go away within 72 hours like they say.
In any other situation, it seems the mounting record of adverse effects from these drugs would be reason enough to pause. In fact, even the suspect World Health Organization (WHO) posted on their website that children should not receive the COVID vaccination, which was almost immediately softened for unknown reasons. The current language as of July 2, 2021 reads,
"Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults, so unless they are part of a group at higher risk of severe COVID-19, it is less urgent to vaccinate them than older people, those with chronic health conditions and health workers. More evidence is needed on the use of the different COVID-19 vaccines in children to be able to make general recommendations on vaccinating children against COVID-19."
This conflicts with the inclusion of children as young as 12 in the Pfizer authorization.
As if these documented risks aren't reason enough for caution, an increasing number of doctors are raising concerns about the potential of the spike protein encoded in the shot to cause long-term harm, including compromising the immune system and reducing fertility. Viral immunologist and associate professor Byram Bridle reviewed Pfizer's biodistribution study and discovered "the COVID spike protein [from the shot] gets into the blood where it circulates for several days post-vaccination and then accumulates in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands and in 'quite high concentrations' in the ovaries," where it can cause damage. They are finding that the spike protein may not stay in the immediate injection site as originally thought and may never turn off production, allowing it to undermine other internal systems including reproductive abilities. These and other concerns have now been voiced by the inventor of the mRNA technology used in some of the shots, who is now being censored despite being a foremost authority on the technology.
Further, the WHO website affirms what Moderna and Pfizer said in their applications about the shots and transmission risk: "While a COVID-19 vaccine will prevent serious illness and death, we still don’t know the extent to which it keeps you from being infected and passing the virus on to others." Thus, we have a drug whose primary benefit is reducing the severity of illness and risk of death, not preventing transmission. Again, given that children and young adults have virtually no risk of serious illness or death from COVID and are at in some cases disproportionate risk of adverse effects, what then could justify the shot? It doesn't make sense under normal logic.
Flawed logic and coercion
As stated by 93 Israeli doctors in an April 2021 open letter:
“not even a handful of children should be endangered through mass vaccination against a disease that is not dangerous to them.”
They advise caution, noting that "warnings about severe or life-threatening side effects accumulate months and years after drug approval, due to the fact that severe but rare toxins appear, naturally, only over time." There may be "long-term adverse effects that have not yet been discovered at this time, including on growth, reproductive system or fertility."
For those high risk people for whom COVID could be life-altering, getting the shot makes some sense. The balance of risks and benefits, particularly for older people more concerned with acute and immediate harm from COVID than long-term effects, could sway them toward getting the shot. But COVID is not an emergency for children. The balance of risks and benefits heavily tilts away from getting the shot. Yet that is not the official narrative.
In the UK, the BBC found themselves in hot water when a questionably qualified Devi Sridhar said in a BBC program designed for children aged six to 10 and being shown to schoolchildren across England that the vaccine is "100% safe for children." She also claimed that the vaccine has been approved, which misrepresents its conditional emergency use authorization. The UK's Daily Expose provided an informative counterpoint highlighting the many lies and deceptions she shared in the program. Several other groups and individuals, like the UK Medical Freedom Alliance, raised concerns about the misleading claims targeting children, eventually leading the BBC to amend its claim that the vaccine is "100% safe," which is clearly not true.
In the U.S., President Biden and Dr. Fauci are promoting mass vaccination for children 12 and older, with younger children potentially eligible by Thanksgiving. In an interview with CBS News, Fauci urged parents to vaccinate their children, using two primary justifications. The first is that, while very rare, there are cases where children have been seriously impacted by COVID or died. However, as discussed above, this is not the case for 99.99% of children. Many more children are impacted by peanut allergies yet we don't ban peanut products from being sold in this country or even supplied in schools. Yet the trials, while inadequate, showed that 86% of children suffered an adverse effect after the first dose. Taking a blanket approach to put a needle in every child's arm for something that is only a remote concern for an extremely small minority of immuno-compromised children is a gross overreaction that will lead to far greater harm than good.
The second justification according to Fauci and parroted by Biden is that "...when children get infected — even though they may not, in fact, get serious illness — they could inadvertently and innocently pass the infection on to someone else, perhaps another member of the family who is vulnerable and could get in trouble." However, there are several issues with this, aside from the blatant attempt to shame and guilt children into wanting the shot and potentially prohibiting them from attending school or college if they do not submit.
First, we have the school studies suggesting children are not a significant source of transmission to each other or adults. Additional studies cast doubt on the role of asymptomatic spread, finding instead that infection is primarily a result of viral load, exposure duration, and personal vulnerability. Because the variants are genetically nearly identical to the "original" pathogen, these two findings are highly likely to hold, despite attempts to scare us into believing otherwise. Second, if the shot is as effective at preventing serious illness or death as they say it is then it should protect those vulnerable family members. Because the shots are not proven to stop transmission, their main function is to protect the individual receiving it.
Further, we have mounting evidence that vaccinated people can infect and be infected by others, meaning there is no difference between those who got and did not get the shot in terms of transmission risk. In fact, one preliminary study in Israel found a higher incidence of variant infection among the vaccinated, suggesting that the shot makes people more vulnerable to so-called "breakthrough cases" than the unvaccinated. Finally, it is important to remember that there are proven and safe prevention and treatment options for COVID that could have saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people if not suppressed by the establishment. There are viable alternatives to the shots.
Protecting the children
When we pull the pieces together, we see there is no benign or benevolent explanation that justifies the mass injection of our children. It seems the shots are not about containing the virus but compromising the future of humanity. As more and more doctors, scientists, and journalists are willing to say out loud, we are witnessing the early stages of a depopulation campaign aimed at consolidating power and control. We are being harmed and killed by those claiming to keep us safe and they are coming for our children next.
But they will only succeed if we let them. Actions we can take to protect ourselves and our children include:
- Do not consent to COVID vaccination for children. Talk to your children about your concerns about the vaccine and do not consent to them receiving it. Protect your right as parents to make this decision for your children.
- Educate yourself. The voices of concern are becoming louder and more numerous. Credible people to pay attention to include: Dr. Peter McCollough, Dr. Michael Yeadon, Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Suhkarit Bhakti, Dr. Carrie Madej, Dr. Peter Breggin, and Dr. Joseph Mercola. Many of these doctors are speaking out at great risk to themselves and deserve our support. Other resources include Doctors for COVID Ethics, Canadian COVID Care Alliance, Children's Health Defense, Informed Consent Action Network, UK Medical Freedom Alliance, and other informed consent and medical freedom groups.
- Question the propaganda. The mainstream media is closely collaborating with the government to spread misinformation and stoke fear. Instead of accepting what is being said at face value, ask yourself questions such as: Does this adhere to logic? Are there inconsistencies? Who benefits from me believing this? Are there alternative perspectives that haven't been represented? For example, the suggestion that the Delta variant poses a unique threat to unvaccinated children and adults is not supported by logic or confirmed, consensus data.
- Get involved. There are many options for getting involved, including supporting groups like America's Frontline Doctors, who have joined other doctors and scientists in legally challenging the experimental vaccines and are working to protect children. You can also contact your government representatives with your concerns, talk to your friends and family, and share information. Contacting your children's schools and universities to oppose vaccine mandates also helps. The propaganda is strong and censorship severe, making caring and informed personal outreach incredibly valuable.
- Stay healthy. The best way to combat COVID and COVID coercion is to be healthy. In addition to healthy eating, exercise, and good self-care, doctors have identified preventatives that can reduce your risk of getting ill. This can be as simple as supplementing with zinc and vitamin D.
The future is not yet written. We have the power to expose the truth and put an end to the pandemic without risking the health of our children and the future of our species. But it will require us to take a stand.
