FDA Grants ‘Emergency Use Authorization’ for Young Children to Get Covid ‘Boosters’

    The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday granted another ‘Emergency Use Authorization’ for children as young as five years old to receive Covid ‘booster’ shots.

    “Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended the emergency use authorizations (EUAs) of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent and the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent to authorize their use as a single booster dose in younger age groups,” the FDA announced. “The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent is authorized for administration at least two months following completion of primary or booster vaccination in children down to six years of age. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent is authorized for administration at least two months following completion of primary or booster vaccination in children down to five years of age.”

    “These bivalent COVID-19 vaccines include an mRNA component of the original strain to provide an immune response that is broadly protective against COVID-19 and an mRNA component in common between the omicron variant BA.4 and BA.5 lineages to provide better protection against COVID-19 caused by the omicron variant,” the announcement continued. “The mRNA in these vaccines is a specific piece of genetic material that instructs cells in the body to make the distinctive ‘spike’ protein of the original virus strain and the omicron variant lineages BA.4 and BA.5. The spike proteins of BA.4 and BA.5 are identical.”

    “Since children have gone back to school in person and people are resuming pre-pandemic behaviors and activities, there is the potential for increased risk of exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. Vaccination remains the most effective measure to prevent the severe consequences of COVID-19, including hospitalization and death,” claimed Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D. “While it has largely been the case that COVID-19 tends to be less severe in children than adults, as the various waves of COVID-19 have occurred, more children have gotten sick with the disease and have been hospitalized. Children may also experience long-term effects, even following initially mild disease. We encourage parents to consider primary vaccination for children and follow-up with an updated booster dose when eligible.”

    Since the beginning of the Covid pandemic, there have been a reported 1,484 children who have died with Covid. This is a mortality rate of 0.002%. Additionally, 95% of these children have severe comorbidities, making the mortality rate for healthy children 0.0001%. Covid has never presented a higher risk to children than that of the seasonal flu.

    Between 75% and 99% of children have been exposed to Covid-19, thereby acquiring antibodies from prior infection or ‘natural immunity.’ Natural immunity has been shown through scientific testing to be durable and long-lasting. In June, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study showing natural immunity is more effective than vaccinated immunity alone. Johns Hopkins University earlier found in a landmark study published in January that 99% of unvaccinated people who had Covid infections gained “natural immunity” that did not diminish for at least 650 days. Thus, statistically speaking, severe Covid poses a miniscule risk to healthy children with natural immunity.

    Furthermore, there is compounding evidence that the mRNA shots present a slight but significant risk of adverse events, particularly for young persons. The Florida Department of Health recently highlighted evidence of heart inflammation caused by the mRNA shots, which is corroborated by multiple scientific studies.

    “The Florida Department of Health (Department) conducted an analysis through a self-controlled case series, which is a technique originally developed to evaluate vaccine safety,” Ladapo announced by press release.

    “This analysis found that there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination,” the announcement stated. “With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group. Non-mRNA vaccines were not found to have these increased risks.”

    Thus, a number of European nations have ended Covid-19 shots for young adults and children. In September, the United Kingdom ended its Covid shot recommendation for children under 12, the Swedish health authority did the same for basically healthy children aged 12–17 years, and Denmark announced that it was no longer recommended for healthy individuals under age 50.

    At a press conference on Tuesday, the White House Covid-19 coordinator, Dr. Ashish Jha, urged Americans to get updated Covid boosters ahead of the holiday season. The White House official estimated there would be 90,000 deaths and one million hospitalizations if the American people did not comply. Dr. Jha argued that all Americans over the age of 12 need to get their COVID shots annually.

    Politico reports that the Biden administration expects that only 5% of the eligible U.S. population will have gotten their updated boosters ahead of the winter flu season.

    On Tuesday, a reporter pushed back against the White House, since President Biden earlier said the pandemic was “over.”

    “President Biden thought the pandemic was over,” the reporter asked. “Do you share that assessment?”

    “So, let me be very clear,” Dr. Zha said. “The president also followed that up with ‘Covid is not over.'”

    The Covid pandemic is not “over” because public health authorities in the Biden administration want the Covid “emergency” to last in perpetuity. These purported health experts continue to ignore natural immunity, as well as the disparate health risks that the current variants and subvariants present to the American population, and push the vaccines and boosters at all costs. If there is any justice, there will be full accountability following the midterm elections.
