1. Children are not at risk from COVID-19
The Pfizer vaccine (Corminaty) will be available to 5-11 year olds from January 10th. While some parents are sadly chomping at the bit to inoculate their children, many are left wondering whether it’s safe and will provide worthwhile protection to their children from SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
Vaccination policies are supposed to rely on expected benefits outweighing the risk of adverse events. However, the risk-benefit analysis for the new COVID-19 vaccines points to a high risk versus zero benefit for children and adolescents.
When it comes to COVID-19 and its variants, children have mostly mild symptoms, or are asymptomatic. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) records show there has been only 1 COVID-19 related death in the 0-9 year old age group. On 20.11.21, the Victorian Health Department confirmed the child under 10 had died “with” COVID-19 and had “other serious comorbidities”.
To put this into perspective, the flu was responsible for more deaths in children in 2017. There were 5 deaths in children aged 14 years or younger including 2 deaths in children aged 0-4 years in NSW alone.
2. No mid-long term safety data
It is important to understand that this is not a traditional vaccine. The new Messenger Ribonucleic Acid (mRNA) technology is a gene-based therapy that teaches our cells to make spike proteins which triggers an immune response inside our bodies.
Dr. Robert Malone, an American virologist, immunologist and co-creator of the new mRNA technology is warning parents of the harmful effects the mRNA vaccines can have on children. Malone states, “The spike proteins can cause permanent damage in children’s critical organs, including their brain, nervous system, blood vessels and reproductive system.”
These mRNA vaccines are still in the clinical trial phase and we do not yet have medium to long-term safety data. Clinical trials usually take 10 years to prove a vaccine is safe and effective, however the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted emergency use authorisation of the Pfizer vaccine in 5-11 year olds based on a short-term study (July-September 21) with 3100 inoculated participants.
The harms and risks of new medicines are often revealed many years later. The fact that the FDA is trying to seal vaccine-related documents for the next 55 years begs the question – what exactly are they trying to hide?
The FDA was recently ordered to release documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) which revealed 1223 Pfizer vaccine deaths among 158,893 adverse reactions worldwide over a 90-day period.
Pfizer’s 12-15 year adolescent trial for Corminaty had such a small sample size (1005 inoculated), that any severe adverse reaction should have prevented their immediate rollout. There was one adverse reaction so grievous it has left 12 year old Maddie De Garay (Ohio US) confined to a wheelchair for the past 10 months.
In the UK, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) said that children were at such a low risk from the virus that the vaccine would offer only a marginal benefit. The JCVI made the decision not to recommend the vaccine to all healthy children based on concerns over a rare side effect of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines which causes heart inflammation (myocarditis) and can lead to palpitations and chest pain.
Myocarditis is an inflammatory process of the myorcardium (heart muscle). Severe myocarditis weakens your heart so that the rest of your body doesn’t get enough blood. Clots can form in your heart leading to a stroke or heart attack. Some cases of myocarditis are irreversible and the mortality rate is as high as 20% after 6.5 years.
In Australia, the overall reported rate of myocarditis and/or pericarditis following the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for males aged 12-17 was 6.8 per 100,000 doses. Following dose 2, it was 10.6 per 100,000. For females aged 12-17, the overall reported rate was 1.4 per 100,000, and following dose 2 was 2.4 per 100,000. It is also crucial to note that these figures from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) are alarming enough without factoring in the amount of unrecorded adverse reactions due to government censorship.
4. Unvaccinated children are not a risk to adults
Throughout 2020 it was widely publicised that transmission of SARS-CoV2 from children to adults is minimal and adults in contact with children do not have higher COVID-19 mortality. According to the Department of Health, “Children, especially younger ones, appear less likely to spread the virus among themselves and to adults. Most children become infected through contact with an infected adult member of their household. While children can have COVID-19, rates of spread of COVID-19 in schools are very low. Outbreaks in schools are rare.”
A study in 2020 involving 13 Norwegian primary schools found minimal child-to-child (0.9%, 2/234) and child-to-adult (1.7%, 1/58) transmission, supporting that under 14-year-olds are not the drivers of SARS-CoV-2 transmission.
Since the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has provisionally approved Corminaty for 5-11 year olds in Australia based on the US Pfizer clinical trial, the media and government have suddenly switched gears. The narrative being pushed now is that achieving high vaccination rates in children will help protect our schools and vulnerable family members at home.
The truth is the current mRNA vaccines do not prevent transmission and their only value is that they reduce symptoms, therefore there is no benefit in inoculating children when they are not at risk from COVID-19. From a moral standpoint, the idea of putting children at risk to protect adults is unethical, to say the least.
5. Natural immunity is our best strategy for overcoming the pandemic
In an interview with Maria Zeee, American cardiologist and renowned COVID-19 expert Dr Peter McCullough revealed the vaccines stop working after 6 months, however the spike proteins remain in the body for up to 15 months per shot. McCullough explains that the issue with accumulating these spike proteins is that they are what is causing damage to the heart muscles which develops into myocarditis. MuCullough also states that 12-17 years olds are 5 times more likely to be hospitalised from myocarditis than SARS- CoV-2.
Dr Peter McCullough along with Dr Robert Malone and many other experts believe that children gaining natural immunity is not only a much safer alternative to the vaccination program but critical to fighting off this virus for good. Natural immunity from infection with SARS-CoV-2 is broad, robust and more effective than the vaccines which essentially do not provide any immunity to SARS-CoV-2 or its variants.
After two years in this pandemic, a vast amount of people have recovered from COVID-19 and developed natural immunity. McCullough estimates that 80% of children in the US have already been exposed to COVID-19, that there have been no school out breaks and no student-to-teacher transmission.
The Chickenpox is another virus known for being harmful to the elderly however manageable in the younger generations. The focus is to wipe out the virus by encouraging natural immunity in children without the need of vaccination. If fighting off a virus with natural immunity can work for the Chickenpox, then why can’t it work for COVID-19?
It is understandably difficult making a decision for your child’s health when there are conflicting and often misleading messages across the government, healthcare system and mainstream media. If you are unsure, the safer option is to wait until more information and data become available.
According to the Department of Health, “The ATAGI supports the right of children and their guardians to make an informed decision about vaccination.” Is having your child take part in the world’s largest-ever human experiment actually what’s best for your child and the community?
The bottom line is, there is a lot of risk for absolutely zero benefit.
