A perspective on COVID vaccines for children you won't see on mainstream media
Since approving the Moderna Spikevax for infants, Health Canada has made a point of assuring parents that “the benefits of this vaccine for children between 6 months and 5 years of age outweigh the potential risks.” But, what if our medical experts are overly optimistic about the benefits and too dismissive of the risks?
Does the science support the COVID vaccines for children?
Last week an article by American investigative journalist, Mary Beth Pfeiffer appeared in TrialSite News. Urging parents to think twice before vaccinating their children, Pfeiffer made the following points.
The vaccine benefits for children are low. In support of this assertion, Pfeiffer cited articles in the British Medical Journal, the Lancet and the BMJ Journal of Medical Ethics, claiming that children have a very low risk of a severe COVID response. She also noted statistics showing that hospitalization rates for COVID in young children are far lower than what has traditionally been seen for influenza in this group.
The oversight of vaccines has failed. Here, Pfeiffer looks at the small number of children in the Pfizer and Moderna COVID trials and the biased use of data. She notes also that independent scientific studies have demonstrated that, particularly among children, the efficacity of the vaccine to protect against COVID decreases rapidly. This seems to suggest that a regular regime of booster shots may become the new normal. Is this really what we want?
The risk is likely greater than the benefits. Pfeiffer makes the point that both health officials and research studies have often focused too much on COVID, while either ignoring or glossing over adverse vaccine reactions.
Examples of this short-sighted approach include the reluctance of the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) to examine the possibility that unexpected and sudden health problems, including death, in the months following vaccination might be linked to the vaccine itself. According to Pfeiffer, only one US government official study has been done on this issue and it had a very small sample. Moreover, participants have disagreed with the conclusions, accusing the study of minimizing and denying their continuing symptoms.
Then, there is the issue of underrepresentation of adverse reactions in the data base, linked primarily to the difficulties and inconveniences of actually reporting them to health authorities. Pfeiffer also notes the suppression of scientific papers that look at vaccine reactions.
Perhaps all of this explains why the CDC tried to stall the release of Pfizer COVID 19 vaccine data for 75 years. Fortunately, that attempt failed thanks to a successful legal challenge by the group Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency. The subsequent release of Pfizer documents has revealed more than 1,200 different side effects of varying severity noted during the trials. How many of those have a direct causal relationship to the vaccine is unknown. Nor do we know how long the various effects last.
What about increased mortality rates?
We know that COVID has caused many, many deaths. However, the elephant in the room that the medical establishment doesn’t seem to want to talk about is the deaths that might actually have been caused by the vaccine.
A recently published analysis by The Expose of official figures published through the UK’s Office for National Statistics calculates that between January 2021 and January 2022, deaths from all causes per 100,000 among double vaccinated 18-39-year-olds were on average 91% higher than deaths per 100,000 among unvaccinated 18-39-year-olds
According to the Expose it gets worse for children. A similar analysis of British data by the same organization concluded that double vaccinated English children (11-15) were 15 times more likely to die of any cause than their unvaccinated peers. The figures were even higher for the triple vaccinated.
The increase in all cause mortality rates independent of COVID over the last year and a half is not unique to England. Excess death patterns for the general population have also been reported in Scotland, New Zealand and Australia.
It would be incorrect to attribute the increase in the death rate entirely to COVID in these countries. For example, According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), 44,331 deaths had occurred in Australia by the 27th of March 2022, which is 6,609 more deaths than the historical average, equating to an 18% rise in deaths. However, just 2,903 deaths were associated with Covid-19, equating to just 6% of all deaths.
If these statistics are correct, a worrying question becomes: Could a portion of the increased deaths be a consequence of the vaccine?
So, let me conclude by asking two questions.
Given all the evidence showing that children have minimal health risks from COVID, why are governments and health authorities pushing parents to vaccinate their young children? And why are they underplaying the potential adverse reactions that might be attributed to the vaccines?
Like Mary Beth Pfeiffer, I would urge parents to think long and hard before vaccinating their children. Do the homework. Read the research from around the world.
A good place to start might be to download this free e-book, just today released by Robert Kennedy Junior of Children's Health Defense. With a bibliography of 303 sources you will find a lot of research and real life data that challeng, not just the prevailing government position that the vaccines prevent hospitalization and death, but also that the side effects are insignificant.
Haven't we been told repeatedly to "Follow the Science."
