CDC & FDA pure insanity, derangement ONCE again by authorizing boosters for children 5 years old! Why? What data on risks are these insane illogical, specious, reckless health official looking at?
by Paul Alexander
Health officials believe new boosters targets the omicron BA.5 subvariant & will provide substantially better protection against infection & disease; approval was based on NO direct effectiveness data
This IMO is criminality for children bring near zero risk to the table, the vaccine does not and will not work (viral mutational immune escape, original antigenic sin, antibody dependent enhancement of infection and disease) and it skews to harms. This is outrageous and there are children who will die from this reckless and dangerous move by FDA and CDC. There is absolutely no basis, no justification for this and Ashish Jha should hang his head in shame pushing this and saying he will take his 10 year old for a shot. He then will be a reckless parent for any risk benefit calculus unless his child has severe underlying illness, is not a candidate for this. He should allow his child to develop and train it’s God given potent innate immune system that will protect them (if trained). In the end, the decision is his as parent etc. and we understand this, yet he should not have used his podium and position to coerce people to do same especially if their child has no risk. That is highly irresponsible.
The CDC recommended Covid omicron booster shots for kids as young as 5 years old just hours after the FDA authorized them.
U.S. health officials believe the new boosters, which target the omicron BA.5 subvariant, will provide substantially better protection against infection and disease.
The FDA authorized the shots without direct data on the effectiveness of the BA.5 shots in kids.
Children ages 5 to 11 are eligible for Pfizer’s omicron shots and kids ages 6 through 17 are eligible for Moderna’s shots two months after receiving their primary series or previous booster with the first generation vaccines.
