There is now an effort to ensure that children and youth get the COVID shot, but from what I understand they really don't need it since for them the risks definitely outweigh any benefits.
Young people rarely get COVID, and if they do it's usually mild or asymptomatic and they don't spread it. Only four people under the age of 20 have died from COVID in Ontario. I know that every death is tragic but this death rate is comparable to the seasonal flu and occurs in those with co-morbidities.
It would be a very simple decision to take this vaccine if it had no side effects, but as a new and experimental (vaccine), it is becoming clear that there are many issues. These vaccines are not FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) approved but only have an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
This shot, unlike past vaccines, injects a genetically modified mRNA (messenger RNA) into your body to cause your DNA to create the same type of spike protein present in the virus, so as to produce an immune response. Scientists, like Dr. Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at the University of Guelph, have recently discovered that the spike protein produced is far from a harmless protein, but a cytotoxic pathogen that travels around the body sometimes causing serious harm and even death to some recipients.
The FDA announced early in May that it would add a CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) vaccine warning concerning reported cases of heart inflammation - either myocarditis or pericarditis - in young adults and children after they received the mRNA vaccines.
Sucharit Bhakdi MD, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Germany's most cited research scientist, warns us not to vaccinate the children.
Dr. Robert Malone, MD, the inventor of the mRNA and DNA vaccine technology, does not recommend these vaccines for children or adolescents.
In the US, according to government statistics, there have now been over 5,000 deaths after receiving the COVID vaccines, and even more in Europe. There have also been many severe side effects some of which may be permanent, but we don't know since there have been no long-term studies. We also do not know what other side effects may show up in the years to come. People who have taken the COVID vaccines are the study.
