Bianchi et al. reports on the vaccine hesitancy in Italian parents for the fraud COVID mRNA gene injection (Pfizer/Moderna): "COVID-19 vaccination hesitancy among Italian parents: A systematic review"

by Paul Alexander

Dr. Peter McCullough pointed to this study and I looked at it & he also has done his own substack worth the read; Italian parents mirror US parents who think the jab is not safe & not effective

‘The main reasons for unwillingness were:

i)the belief that the vaccine was unsafe

ii) the belief that the vaccine was ineffective

iii) a fear of adverse events, and

iv) considering COVID-19 a non-threatening disease.

In other words, parents are figuring out based on their own risk management decision-making, that the vaccine offers no benefit to young children or persons who bring statistical zero risk to the table, and with a shot that skews to harms. COVID is not threatening to healthy young persons. Never was. Parents thus are informed and choosing wisely to so NO!



In May 2021, the Italian government extended the COVID-19 vaccination campaign to 12- to 18-year-old subjects and, starting December 2021, vaccines were also offered to children between 5 and 11 years-old. Despite these efforts, suboptimal vaccination coverages are reported. The purpose of this review is to estimate the proportion of parents/caregivers of children and adolescents expressing COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy in Italy. The vaccine hesitation rate among parents of minors was 55.1% (95%CI: 43.8–66.1%). A higher value was evidenced in studies focusing on children (59.9%; 95%CI = 43.7–75.1%) compared to the ones focusing on adolescents (51.3%; 95%CI = 34.5–68.0%).

The main reasons for unwillingness were the belief that the vaccine was unsafe or ineffective, fear of adverse events, and considering COVID-19 a non-threatening disease. The implementation of effective communication campaigns and health educational programs on safe pediatric vaccinations is essential to support strategies to bolster vaccina-tion confidence.

Two other studies lend support to the Italian findings of COVI vaccine hesitancy:

1)Galanis P, Vraka I, Siskou O, Konstantakopoulou O, Katsiroumpa A, Kaitelidou D. Willingness, refusal and influential factors of parents to vaccinate their children against the COVID-19: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Prev Med. 2022 Apr;157:106994. doi:10.1016/j.ypmed.2022.106994.


The overall proportion of parents that intend to vaccinate their children against the COVID-19 was 60.1%, while the proportion of parents that refuse to vaccinate their children was 22.9% and the proportion of unsure parents was 25.8%. The main predictors of parents' intention to vaccinate their children were fathers, older age of parents, higher income, higher levels of perceived threat from the COVID-19, and positive attitudes towards vaccination (e.g. children's complete vaccination history, history of children's and parents' vaccination against influenza, confidence in vaccines and COVID-19 vaccines, and COVID-19 vaccine uptake among parents). Parents' willingness to vaccinate their children against the COVID-19 is moderate and several factors affect this decision. Understanding parental COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy does help policy makers to change the stereotypes and establish broad community COVID-19 vaccination.’

2)Chen F, He Y, Shi Y. Parents’ and guardians’ willingness to vaccinate their children against COVID-19: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Vaccines (Basel). 2022 Jan 24;10(2):179. doi:10. 3390/vaccines10020179


Of 452 identified records, 29 eligible studies were included (N = 68,327 participants). The estimated worldwide vaccination acceptance rate was 61.40% (95% CI: 53.56–68.69%, I2 = 99.3%), ranging from 21.6% to 91.4% across countries and regions. In the determinant assessment, the age of parents and guardians, access to scientific information and recommendations, routine and influenza vaccination behavior, and the willingness of parents and guardians to vaccinate themselves were potentially significant predictors of the vaccination willingness. Given the limited quality and quantity of included articles, future studies with a rigorous design will be necessary for the confirmation of our findings.’

Majority of Italian Parents Appropriately Hesitant on Childhood COVID-19 Vaccination
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH The peer-reviewed medical literature on COVID-19 is under strong bias from the editors and publishers to allow mainly favorable papers into publication on COVID-19 vaccination. A proxy on medical establishment vaccination sentiment are papers that report fair balanced survey results from either patients or parents of chi…
