On October 29, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “authorized the emergency use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 to include children 5 through 11 years of age.” This was the opening statement of the FDA’s press release heralding the news your kindergartner can now receive the COVID-19 vaccination. The same COVID shot which adults and children 12 years and older have been receiving except in a lower dose, and with a modified formulation to stabilize the smaller dosage.

But do children really need to take a risky vaccine for a virus when they have a near 100% chance of surviving the illness?

COVID Vaccine Data

It’s been almost a year since the vaccines were first authorized and rolled out in December of 2020.  During these eleven months, ample data, science and evidence have emerged revealing COVID vaccines are “leaky,” meaning they allow infection despite the once-understood notion, that a vaccine imparts immunity—this one doesn’t.  There is also data and evidence which show the vaccines can be harmful causing most commonly myocarditis and pericarditis, especially in younger males, and even induce death.

Vaccine injuries are real and when one occurs it is required to be reported to the Vaccine Adverse Effect Reporting System (VAERS) which is co-managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the FDA, where “healthcare providers are required [by law, for all vaccines] to report…adverse events after COVID-19 vaccination.”  As of October 29, according to the weekly VAERS data analysis website, VAERS Analysis, 18,078 people have died from the COVID vaccine, which is more than “the number of deaths associated with all other vaccines combined since the year 1990.”

The public has created its own reporting system of sorts on the messaging app Telegram, which has a channel called “Covid Vaccine Injuries” with over 76 thousand subscribers where vaccine related adverse events are documented.  Through text posts, images and videos, the public is made privy to some of the eye-opening images and stories of those who have been adversely affected by the COVID vaccine.  

But most concerning and revealing is a study from Toxicology Reports published online via the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) on September 14th which “examines issues related to COVID-19 inoculations for children.”

The abstract in the article says most of the people who have died of COVID have been the elderly stating: “the bulk of the official COVID-19- attributed deaths per capita occur in the elderly with high comorbidities, and the COVID-19 attributed deaths per capita are negligible in children.”  

And when considering the risks of the vaccine versus the benefits as it relates to children the report says “most importantly, the clinical trials did not address long-term effects that, if serious, would be borne by children/adolescents for potentially decades.”

The abstract concludes by saying, “a novel best-case scenario cost-benefit analysis showed very conservatively that there are five times the number of deaths attributable to each inoculation vs those attributable to COVID-19 in the most vulnerable 65+ demographic. The risk of death from COVID-19 decreases drastically as age decreases, and the longer-term effects of the inoculations on lower age groups will increase their risk-benefit ratio, perhaps substantially.”

Put in simpler terms, their study revealed that people 65 years or older, are five times as likely to die from the vaccine, than from COVID-19 itself. And the chance of dying from COVID decreases the younger the person is, but the risk of vaccine related injury increases, “perhaps substantially.”

The virtual non-existent risk for kids is not new information. In July , a New York Magazine piece cited data from the CDC which stated, “among children the mortality risk from COVID-19 is actually lower than from the flu. The risk of severe disease or hospitalization is about the same.”

The story added: “This is true for the much-worried-over Delta variant. It is also true for all the other variants, and for the original strain.”

“Over the course of the pandemic, [up to July] 49,000 Americans under the age of 18 have died of all causes, according to the CDC. Only 331 of those deaths have been from COVID — less than half as many as have died of pneumonia. In 2019, more than 2,000 American kids and teenagers died in car crashes; each year, according to some estimates, about a thousand die from drowning.”

We have written before how the case fatality rate is higher among the vaccinated compared to the unvaccinated in Louisiana. 

When it comes to children, there is virtually no risk of death from COVID-19 in the state. The latest numbers from the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) reflect this.

As of Friday, November 5, there have been 761,849 COVID cases in Louisiana, and 18 COVID deaths among those 17 years and younger. That is a case fatality rate is 0.00236%; or 0.00% when rounded off to two decimal places.  

This is supported by CDC data, as quoted by Pfizer in its advisory board meeting briefing document on October 26th. Among children 5 and 11 years of age, as of October 14th, there have been 1.8 million COVID-19 cases, and 143 deaths. This equates to case fatality rate of 0.00794%, again, rounding down to two decimal places yields a rate of 0.01%; or put more positively, a 99.99% survival rate…it can’t get much higher than that.

So, why then would a parent place their child in the breach of the unknown—which is the risk of harm by the vaccine, and not keep them in the realm of the known—which is their near perfect survivability rate if their child contracts the virus?

Every death is a tragedy especially when it’s a child.  But with a survival rate of practically 100%, why is there a push to subject our children to an experimental vaccine with documented adverse reactions?

Vaccine Mandates for School Children

Despite all of the available science, data and evidence, which raises legitimate concerns about the safety and efficacy of the COVID vaccines, and prove the vaccination shot comes with risk, government at all levels and multi-national corporations around the world are mandating vaccinations. 

The decision to take an experimental drug, which the vaccines are, is a personal choice and ought to remain one. It should not be forced.

And now Americans, who believe in freedom—freedom to choose, freedom to take risk, freedom to decide for themselves and their families what’s best for them, are going to be forced to subject their children to a vaccine with unknown long-term risks, which was rushed to market, has not been fully tested, and comes with well documented adverse side effects.

The attempted forced vaccination of children is already happening in San Francisco where children 5 years of age and up will now be required to show a vaccine passport, i.e., proof of vaccination, to enter restaurants and a variety of indoor businesses. Children 12 years and older are already required to do so.

And, as the first in the nation, on October 1st, California Gov. Gavin Newsom put parents on notice announcing future statewide mandates for children, which will take effect once vaccines are fully approved by the FDA for kids 5 years and older, and will be a requirement to attend in-person classes.

And considering the fact New Orleans already has its own vaccine passport mandate in place, there is a high probability that similar restrictions for young children are on the horizon, not just in Orleans parish, but possibly for the entire state of Louisiana, and perhaps the whole country…even though the science doesn’t support it, and has proven, our children are at virtually no risk from COVID.
