Not a single COVID-19 vaccine is approved for children under 12 — emergency use or not. Barely any have received full FDA approval. We haven’t adequately studied the impact of vaccines on children, side effects, or anything we should study — but now Dr. Anthony Fauci wants to force 5-year-olds to get the COVID vaccine before Halloween.
Currently, the Pfizer vaccine is the only one approved for children as young as 12. But the company has recently developed a lower-dose jab for children ages 5-11. The company has only had the new vaccine in trials since July, but calls its latest jab “safe and effective” for kids as young as 5.
“Over the past nine months, hundreds of millions of people ages 12 and older from around the world have received our COVID-19 vaccine. We are eager to extend the protection afforded by the vaccine to this younger population, subject to regulatory authorization, especially as we track the spread of the Delta variant and the substantial threat it poses to children,” says Albert Bourla, the chairman and CEO for Pfizer.
“Subject to the FDA’s careful review, a vaccine for children ages 5-11 could be available as soon as the end of October,” Pfizer Board of Directors member and former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb says.
MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson asked Fauci if he would support “mandating the COVID vaccine for kids.” And of course he would.
“People think that having children be required to get vaccination is a very novel thing — it isn’t. Right now, if you want to go to many schools, most public schools, you’ve got to be vaccinated for measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis,” Fauci said, adding:
“So it’s nothing new. When you hear, “would I be in favor of mandating?” In fact, I would be, but that gets taken out of context like I’m trying to impose some novel, new restriction on somebody, of taking away their rights. Look at what’s been going on for decades in schools… the requirement for vaccination.”
We still don’t know if the vaccine parents are pumping into preteens is completely safe. Now, we’re expected to inject even younger children with a vaccine that has received limited testing and trials. Watch Fauci below:
