The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) presented data at its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) meeting on September 1, 2022, that confirms the COVID shots are not safe for children.

The data presented were summaries of reports from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), Vaccine Safety Data Link (VSD), a private insurance-based system that monitors hospital records, and V-safe, a voluntary smart phone-based monitoring program that relies on text messages and web surveys.

On June 17, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted emergency use authorization (EUA) for mRNA COVID shots to be injected into babies as young as six months of age. For the Moderna COVID-19 injection, the FDA amended the EUA to include use of the vaccine in individuals 6 months through 17 years of age. For the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, the FDA amended the EUA to include use of the vaccine in children 6 months through 4 years of age. The vaccine had been authorized for use in individuals 5 years of age and older.

According to the CDC report, more than 1.5 million Pfizer and Moderna doses have been administered June 16, 2022 through August 23, 2022, to children under five years.

Out of 1,017 VAERS reports regarding 1,006 children, 19 experienced serious effects which include “death, life-threatening illness, hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, permanent disability, congenital anomaly or birth defect.”

In the slide presentation, the CDC describes “systemic reactions” as fatigue, headache, joint pain, etc., and “health impacts” as unable to perform normal daily activities, missed school or work, or received care.

In the V-safe data as of August 21, 2022, for children ages six months through five years, 8,541 received Pfizer shots and 14,725 received Moderna. The data reveals that between 50-60 percent of these babies and young children reported a “systemic reaction” and approximately 10 percent had a “health impact.”

The data presented at the ACIP meeting also reveals that within seven days after vaccination, 40-50 percent of children 5-11 years of age reported a “systemic reaction,” 10-15 percent had a “health impact,” and 2-4 percent needed “medical care.”

Within seven days of vaccination, 60-75 percent of children 12-17 years had “any systemic reaction,” 10 to 25 percent were “unable to perform daily activities,” and 5 to 20 percent were “unable to work or attend school.” Therefore, more than 30 percent of children in this age group had a health impact after the second shot and booster dose and approximately 2 percent needed medical care.

The CDC data clearly shows that these injections are not safe for children and teens and should be discontinued immediately. Other countries, like the United Kingdom, stopped the COVID shots for children under 12 years, except for children in high-risk categories. Sweden has also decided against recommending COVID shots for children aged 5-11.

Scientific studies show that children are at very low risk of spreading the COVID infection to other children, to adults as seen in household transmission studies, or becoming very ill or dying.  According to a 2020 Yale University report, scientists have observed that children fare much better than adults and have very diverse and different immune system responses to SARS-CoV-2 infection and have far less illness or mortality from COVID. Studies by Ankit B. Patel and Dr. Supinda Bunyavanich show the virus has limited expression and presence in the upper respiratory area in young children. This partly explains why children are less likely to be infected in the first place, or spread it to other children or adults, or even get severely ill. Research published in August 2021 by J. Loske also revealed that “the airway immune cells in children are primed for virus sensing resulting in a stronger early innate antiviral response to SARS-CoV-2 infection than in adults.”

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “Even the CDC’s own data reveals that these COVID shots are harming children. Pharmaceutical companies merely see children as a budget item to increase their bottom line and they continue to ignore the serious adverse events and deaths caused by these experimental shots. These dangerous injections should be stopped immediately.”
