The FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee on Tuesday October 26, discussed pushing their jab for children between the ages of 5 to 11 years old.
Their findings will now determine whether the Biden administration distributes vaccines to elementary schools. The US state of California has already mandated the shot for schoolchildren pending federal authorization.
But key members of the committee as well as temporary voting members are either former Pfizer employees or still have close ties to the company, the National File learned. They include a former vice president of Pfizer Vaccines, a recent Pfizer consultant, a recent Pfizer research grant recipient, a mentor to a current top Pfizer vaccine executive, a Pfizer vaccine centre owner, the chair of a Pfizer data group. Most of them have already publicly pushed vaccines for children.
And recent FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb happens to be on Pfizer’s board of directors. This represents a monumental conflict of interest in which no one in the media seems to take much interest.
FDA News stated last December: “FDA advisory committee members in the past have frequently been the target of heavy politicking by industry representatives of whatever drug they were considering for a recommendation at in-person meetings. That process has been somewhat altered by the fact that during Covid-19, meetings are being held virtually. But it’s likely that behind-the-scenes pressuring still goes on. The industry defends the attempts to influence committee members as simply efforts to best present their case.”
Children are not at risk from Covid-19
It is worth noting that, as Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out regarding vaccines for children: “Children have 1 in 1 000 000 chance of dying from Covid.” The evident bias of the FDA panel was highlighted on Twitter by Dr Doug Corrigan, a molecular biologist: “Wait, so we can’t use Ivermectin because ‘we don’t have enough data’ but… ‘Let’s vaccinate children to see how safe the vaccine is because we don’t have enough data.’”
Bloomberg has reported that Covid hospitalizations of US children (already extremely rare compared with the adult population) have been falling sharply after schools reopened. For Pfizer executives the argument for pushing child vaccines has been to claim that the start of the school year would increase infections. They have also admitted that they do not know what the long-term effects of the shots will be.
Meanwhile, official German Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI) figures show that 22,4 percent of reported adverse reactions in teenagers (12-17) were severe, roughly twice as many as in adults. That constitutes around 1 serious response for every 10 000 vaccinations, which is unacceptably high.
But in a 17-0 decision, the FDA committee has voted for a medical experiment on American children by approving the “emergency use” of Covid shots in children aged 5 – 11, even though the mortality rate is almost zero, there is no “benefit” and no emergency.
Harvard expert rejects Covid jab for kids
Harvard University professor of medicine Martin Kulldorff has firmly rejected the plan to inject children. “I don’t think children should be vaccinated for Covid. I’m a huge fan of vaccinating children for measles, for mumps, for polio, for rotavirus, and many other diseases, that’s critical. But Covid is not a huge threat to children,” he told EpochTV.
“They can be infected, just like they can get the common cold, but they’re not a big threat. They don’t die from this, except in very rare circumstances. So if you want to talk about protecting children or keeping children safe, I think we can talk about traffic accidents, for example, which they are really at some risk.
“And there are other things that we should make sure [of] to keep children safe. But Covid is not a big risk factor for children.”
Children are more likely to become seriously ill or die from the annual flu than from Covid-19 according to data and studies that Kulldorff has reviewed. According to the CDC, 195 children under the age of 4 and 442 between 5 and 18 have died from the virus as of October 20. Children are also 15 times less likely to be hospitalized than those older than 85 and 570 times less likely to die.
Kulldorff cited the example of Sweden. The country kept daycare and schools open for all children ages 1 to 15. Almost 2 million children survived the first wave without vaccines, masks or any distancing in schools and zero children died from the virus infection.
