I wish this were a joke, but it isn’t.
Moderna plans to ask the Food and Drug Administration to authorize its mRNA jabs for infants as young as six months.
The company this morning released partial results from a clinical trial of its shots in 6,700 children up to six years old. The trial showed the mRNA jabs had little benefit in reducing Covid infections and caused fevers in many children, including fevers of more than 104 degrees in a handful.
Moderna claimed in a press release it believes the shots might reduce the risk of severe Covid in young children. But the trial showed nothing of the sort. No children in it had severe Covid, so the company could not evaluate whether the shots actually will have meaningful benefit against serious illness.
The shots reduced the risk of Covid from the Omicron variant in children by only about 40 percent, below the 50 percent level that regulators had generally called the minimum level for approval in 2020.
Recall that the major adult trials from Moderna and Pfizer showed a 95 percent reduction in infections against the original coronavirus variant - a finding that FAR overstated their real-world effectiveness after a few months. A similar decline from the 40 percent trial figure Moderna reported would suggest the potential for negative real-world efficacy - or increased infection risk after vaccination - in months.
The company did not report any details on side effects except for the fever data. About 15 percent of kids had fevers over 100.4 degrees, and 1 in 500 had fevers over 104 degrees, which can require hospitalization. The company did not report whether any children needed to be hospitalized as a result of fevers or other side effects.
Given the weakness of these results and the fact Covid poses almost no risk to kids who are not profoundly ill or morbidly obese, it is not entirely clear why Moderna would try to convince regulators to move ahead. Parents have already been very reluctant to have kids aged five to 12 take Pfizer’s mRNA jab, and surveys suggest even more resistance for younger kids.
But Moderna made clear it does plan to go ahead.
Perhaps Moderna believes regulators will not feel they can say no this late in the game.
The problem Moderna and others are creating is the hesitancy now of parents to get any vaccines for the children... which may not be a good thing. Trust has been obliterated.
If my understanding is correct, Moderna must get the vaccine on the children's vaccine schedule, so that Moderna can sell an FDA-approved version in the US free from liability for all ages.
What is really scary is they found 6700 parents that would put there kids into this clinical trial.
My sister's sister-in-law is all about getting everyone vaccinated and has been waiting for the vaccination for her infant daughter. My sister's mother- and father-in-law won't go to birthday parties or events because they worry about getting sick. In some ways, I feel sorry for my sister's in-laws because their problem isn't covid-19, their problem is obsessive compulsive disorder and being Joe Biden supporters (all three of the in-laws hate Trump and hate DeSantis). These people won't go near my sister because she's not vaccinated and they can't believe DeSantis isn't requiring people to be vaccinated to get on a cruise ship. Worse part of all of this is that my sister's father-in-law is a doctor, so he should know better. What I've learned through all of this is that even some intelligent people, some of them M.D.s, lack the capacity to question the mainstream narrative. They were told that covid was contagious and deadly and that's all they know and all they have known since March 2020. They've learned nothing new in 2 years.
"The company did not report any details on side effects except for the fever data"
There's more side effects they're not reporting. I guarantee it.
Sorry, but what is f*ing wrong with parents that they know they could market these with approval?
I am a parent of young children (who won't be getting the COVID vaccine). I can't tell you how many fellow parents out in public I've come across that have it stuck in their head that they absolutely can't take a sigh of relief or lighten up their family's interventions (mask wearing etc) until a COVID vaccine is inside the body of their child. It's clear from our conversations they're not considering side effects, effectiveness, the fact that COVID is still just as transmissible after being vaccinated, or anything else that requires nuanced thinking. It's all purely emotional and it makes me really sad for them but also made that they've been made into agorophobics over something that's unlikely to help them -- which will effect their families for years to come.
I do wonder what these type of parents will fixate on once the vaccine is in their kids arm. They've got to have something else, at this point -- after two years of being so emotionally invested in this, one does not just "relax" and "go back to real life."
These people lie constantly. It will only end when we ignore them and refuse this crap in mass. While I’m normally hesitant to judge other parents, I will gladly judge abusive parents. Any parent who gives their baby this crap is a piece of 💩parent who cares more about their own ego and “fitting in” than their actual child. They own that. Their kid dies from the jab, or is permanently injured, or is sick with a high fever, it’s on their parents.
It is sick and unnatural to inject babies with drugs that do cause harm and don’t treat any disease prophilactically or otherwise, particularly a disease so unlikely to harm your child that the tub at bath time is literally a higher risk. There is no excuse at this point for “not knowing” these jabs do zero good and cause harm. Zero. None. Zip. Nada.
Another needless shot for the least likely to get Covid. This sickens me
Your baby has had a stroke, along with a cardiac arrhythmia. This is normal these days because of pandemic stress in utero. Be sure to get your QR code imprinted on his forehead before you go home as it's required to leave the hospital. I'm allowed to say "his" because I studied biology.
Oh! And make sure you tell everyone your son is grateful for the protection the vaccine provides and to get vaxxed and boosted if they haven't already. We have his gender reassignment surgery scheduled for next week, toodle-oo!
My town had an outbreak of over 50 kids in the middle school last week. Based on the state’s raw vaxx data, it looks like over 95% of children that age are vaxxed in that school. Of course, they probably received their injection before the school year began in August or September and it has waned, but what really is the point? That’s a rhetorical question. Meanwhile, I have to have test to prove I don’t have Covid to get into venues. I think it’s time to just stop testing as everyone is susceptible. Just ask Jen Psaki.
Meanwhile their ceo is a multimillionaire. But according to the Karen’s, he has the kids best interest at heart
These people are mentally ill. I find no other rational explanation.
That's the problem of being trapped in the Big Lie. You can't say no at this point, it would be a clear admission of guilt. Just remember our best weapon is the truth. Keep up the good fight Team Reality. Stay strong and free.
I would like to know if parents willingly enrolled their children in the trial or if it was largely made up of orphans and children in foster care without an adult to appropriately advocate for them.
Every parent I've tried to talk to about this has "done their research", yet they can never cite a source.
"Perhaps Moderna believes regulators will not feel they can say no this late in the game."
More likely, Moderna and Pfizer know approval is in the bag...
It seems with animals and humans we are vaccinating based on a remote possibility of getting a virus. About 3 years ago, I began looking into cases involving rabies, rhino, west Niles, etc for my horses that frequently had bad reactions to shots. I realized cases were extremely small. Hmmm. On top of that shots once were given individually now there is a 5 way shot. I talked with my vet. She did not like combining so many shots. About a year ago my neighbor with an older horse vaccinated him and he died. Her horse was in very good shape. Beautiful animal. Makes me sick to know those shots killed him. The pro vaccine folks like with humans push the notion that the more people and animals get vaccinated that is what keeps down cases. I know of a few people with many animals that have never vaccinated and they have never had any cases. Some of these animals are routinely out and about with many other animals. I once was a barn manager when rhino went through our barn. The only horse that did not get sickness at all was an older horse that was never vaccinated.
All the people I know that have gotten vaccines have all gotten virus as well. I do know a family where daughter, father, mother all got virus and were unvaccinated. What is weird there is the dad is in very good shape and got very sick. His wife has been sick multiple times with various illnesses which he says is why he got sick to begin with. So she is the sickly one, but never gets very sick. He is fit and gets really sick. Our ecosystems sure are complex.
I went to a community meeting the other night. The presenter, a county worker, at some point spoke about Covid, and said “you know the virus that was suppose to kill is all”, as she rolled her eyes. I of course smiled, but realized the room was quiet. I then realized I was with a bunch of people that still believed Covid is a huge threat. The speaker realized her error. Most uncomfortable meeting I have ever been to. People very defensive.
I see many politicians acting very crazy these days. Calling for assassinations which no country should do publicly. It is like they have lost their filter. Have these vaccines caused frontal lobe damage? Seriously, I have seen huge differences with people I know that have been vaccinated. They seem easily triggered. Make little sense. Decision making seems very altered.
Ramblings for a rainy Wednesday.
injecting healthy children with experimental drugs is a crime
The regulators will approve this rubbish because they want golden parachute jobs with Moderna when they tire of being government bureaucrats. Moderna doesn't care if parents don't get their kids vaxed, because idiot government politicians looking for campaign donations (read: "kickbacks") will give Moderna contracts that guarantee them sales whether the doses are used or not. Just another example of how corrupt the whole process is.
The way to become wealthy in this life is to sell a product to governments, and donate a portion of the sales proceeds to the largest two or three political parties in each country.
Why would the pharma developers care? Since they can never be sued; there is no incentive for them to do the right thing. They have a hard enough time doing the right thing when they can be sued.
Billboards all over my State citing "I did the research and got the vaccine" safe and effective BS paid for with your borrowed taxpayer dollars. WTF ????
As each day passes and stories like this emerge, I am so happy I didn't give into the hysteria and manipulation to take one of these shots!
Who puts their baby in a drug trial? Especially now
So many parents are brainwashed idiots.
Why anyone under the age of 65 would have ever taken this so called vaccine is beyond me. Those that would inject their children are beyond help.
My son-in-law's brother has twins who are 4. His brother is an engineer and his brother's wife is an MD, (Pediatric allergist). They are going to get their kids vaccinated as soon as it becomes available for young children. I can't understand why highly educated people, especially one in the medical field, would vaccinate their young children.
About the regular childhood vaccines: Growing up in the 1970's in a mid-sized (300,000 people) city, there was not a single instance of someone dying or being messed up due to childhood diseases. This mean the vaccine schedule of, say 1975, was sufficient to eliminate the scourge of childhood diseases such as those in the history books. There was never any medical reason to add any additional vaccines to the childhood schedule from that point on. It has all been about profits ever since.
As someone who's childhood was compromised by what, in retrospect, turned out to be medical Mercury, I lost trust in the medical establishment well over a decade ago. That the medical establishment still refuses to own up to the problems of medical Mercury has done nothing to restore any trust on my part in the medical establishment.
Alex, you wrote (Recall that) "the major adult trials from Moderna and Pfizer showed a 95 percent reduction in infections against the original coronavirus variant."
No, they did not. The 95% number repeated endlessly by the CDC employees and the main stream media was the relative risk reduction (RRR) which meant very little and means very little to this day. It's all explained here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RG7n1ZbDTww
I am having a hard time determining who is a bigger threat to the U. S citizens. Is it Putin and his nukes or Moderna and Pfizer with their affiliates at the FDA, NIH and CDC.
But their survival rate will go from 99.99999999% to 99.99999999%. We must get them the jab to save lives!
15% had fevers....wonder how many of them could potentially be Maddie de Garay "fevers". Like paralyzed & on a feeding tube = stomachache
I can already bet big money this gets approved. Heartbreaking
The regulators will approve, the government will purchase massive stocks, no one will subject their children to it, and a year from now we'll be hearing about all the unused "vaccine" being destroyed.
Nothing short of an overthrow of the current system and structures will end the Democide.
You keep acting like the MRNA vaccines are over and done with, but they aren’t. You think that just because the scientific evidence says that they don’t work well and probably do more harm than good means that they will go away. They aren’t.
They do what they do because they can. The #1 crisis we face is ZERO accountability. Why would any rational mind believe things would change with the very same people who have been orchestrating all of this are in place...especially in the Pharma space.
The CDC, FDA, FEMA, DHS- even NASA- are as much a part of the Deep State as the CIA.
Just finished listening to the four hour interview that Megyn Kelly did with Robert Kennedy Jr. ~ I will never feel the same about vaccines again. I agree with Rob, trust has been completely obliterated.
I have family member that stated as soon as the jab is “approved” for under 5 they are getting the jab for their child to protect the child from severe illness, even though the child is healthy and has no pre-existing comorbidities. You can’t change that mind set no matter what proof, data or real world examples you show.
" it believes the shots might reduce the risk of severe Covid in young children"
What severe Covid? I've never heard of severe Covid in young children. This is criminal and must be prosecuted!
They are moving ahead because they are sociopaths. They are moving ahead because the FDA is filled to the brim with sociopaths. They are moving ahead because no small fraction of parents are sociopathic virtue signallers.
Moderna is a one trick pony when it comes to profits. Thus, the need to push their one trick on as many humans as possible.
Shots for this age group are absurd. I know of kids under the age of 12 in my neighborhood who received this jab and also had the Vid a couple months afterwards. Absolutely useless and risky. Makes me sad for the children and angry at these crooks.
Doesn’t it have to do with getting it on the childhood vaccine schedule, so that they can have liability immunity permanently?
Robert F. Kennedy, quoted here:
“They are never going to market a vaccine, allow people access to a vaccine, an approved vaccine without getting liability protection. Now the emergency use authorization vaccines have liability protection under the PREP Act and under the CARES Act.
So as long as you take an emergency use vaccine, you can’t sue them. Once they get approved, now you can sue them, unless they can get it recommended for children. Because all vaccines that are recommended, officially recommended for children get liability protection, even if an adult gets that vaccine.
That’s why they are going after the kids. They know this is going to kill and injure a huge number of children, but they need to do it for the liability protection.”
1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, PL 99-660, gave manufacturers immunity for liability for injuries and deaths caused by vaccines on childhood immunization schedule.
2005 PREP Act, Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act, gave manufacturers immunity from liability for injuries and deaths caused by vaccines under Emergency Use Authorization.
2020 CARES Act, expanded PREP Act provisions, by expanding the number of people allowed to administer injections without facing liability for injuries and deaths caused by vaccines under EUA, except for ‘willful misconduct.’
My wife drives the ship medically for our Vaxx injured 24 year old son. This is her go to book -https://www.medicalmedium.com/book And yes we have had "Autism Drs" say to us, "but he (the author) is not even a MD". Yes, we dropped that MD.
I now live the same life as my son from a dietary view - at least 97%. It works!!
Who were the13,400 parents that put their kids in this study?
This won't end until these people are ended. Out of a job, out on the street, whatever you want "ended" to mean.
"it is not entirely clear why Moderna would try to convince regulators to move ahead." Is this satire??
Like most I'm starting to realize many of what I thought were conspiracy theories have a lot of truth to them. Like general vaccine hesitancy, not just for Covid, when I read that in 2021 childhood vaccination in Florida fell 14% and all cause mortality also fell by 9%. https://igorchudov.substack.com/p/florida-vaccine-hesitancy-reduced?s=r
Alex - check out this quote,
"Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former FDA commissioner, says testing should end outside of specific high-risk circumstances like nursing homes. Covid could “fade from consciousness” this summer …"
Any idea why he wants to stop testing now?
Hmmm.....Maybe because its showing his vaccines dont work? Nah, couldn't be!
“ it is not entirely clear why Moderna would try to convince regulators to move ahead”
Pretty sure we have covered fiduciary duty to maximize shareholder return here there and everywhere… that’s all this can be
