Yet another outrageous example of how the public health industry in America has learned NOTHING from COVID. It wants parents to get the COVID vaccine for babies.
Earlier this week a US CDC panel of advisers voted 13-1 to recommend new Covid vaccine boosters for all people over 6 months of age, contradicting European and WHO guidelines that focus on high-risk groups…
The new Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines are formulated to the XBB.1.5 Omicron variant, a decision made back in June by the FDA. However recent US data shows that only 3% of infections are now from this particular variant.
The child vaccine recommendation is especially odd because CDC’s own data shows 96% of children already have antibodies to COVID.
Dr. Paul Offit, a leading vaccine advocate known for co-inventing the rotavirus vaccine, is a member of the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee that voted to authorize the shots. He’s 72 years old and he’s skipping the shot for himself this year:
As we have previously reported in the Hotline, the CDC inexplicably INCREASED its order for pediatric boosters to 20 million doses a few weeks ago at $83 each, even though only 4.5 million kids took the last round of boosters.
The full-court press from the Biden administration on child vax seems more about avoiding the embarrassment of throwing most of those doses away than promoting public health – but we expect most of them to end up in the trash anyway.
