Based on a clinical trial that SHOWED PRECISELY NO EVIDENCE of actual health benefit for the children who received it.
In other words, what Pfizer demonstrated in its 2,300-patient child trial is that its mRNA doses can make your kids make spike proteins (and have side effects).
Per Pfizer’s September 20 press release announcing the trial’s results, the trial didn’t show the vaccine reduced hospitalizations (which are basically non-existent in healthy children) or even mild cases.
See where the release says the vaccine did anything to help kids stay healthier?
No? That’s because it doesn’t.
But it did reveal “side effects generally comparable to those observed in participants 16 to 25 years of age” - in other words, (sometimes severe) headaches, fatigue, and fever. Clinically significant myocarditis? Who knows? With barely 1,000 boys receiving the vaccine, even fairly common side effects could go unnoticed.
Still, as it warned/promised, Pfizer has now formally asked the Food & Drug Administration to approve (I mean authorize, but let’s not go down that rabbit hole) its Covid shots for the little ones.
The Pfizer announcement led to some very special bluecheck genius from Matthew “Matty” Yglesias, proud owner of 500,000 Twitter followers and a Substack almost as big as this one.
The conversation went like this: Maya Sen - a Harvard professor (I won’t judge if you don’t) pointed out the lack of clinical benefit in two words:
Which led Matty to Mattysplain:
Matty - Matthew - Mr. Yglesias, sir -
You’re not saying what you think you’re saying.
But yeah, let’s give healthy kids a vaccine proven to work for months - months, I tell ya! - for a disease that poses basically no risk to them.
Two of our three kids are in this age range. They will be getting mRNA shots when Florida freezes over.
Pure evil. Our children are now being used as human shields to make the irrationally terrified feel better. Pure evil anyone who pushes this on our children.
I live in Connecticut and parents can't wait. I've heard them discussing it at soccer games. There is also no mask mandate in my town, 90% are vaccinated out of the eligible population and 95% of people are still wearing masks in the grocery store. It's a mental illness at this point. I've told my kids that we're homeschooling as soon as schools mandate and then moving.
Giving jabs to children who basically are immune to Covid is like forcing birth control meds on senior citizens .
Not going to go look for it, but there was a tweet a while back from an obviously deranged mom who had posted her 10 yr old son's teary joyful reaction when she told him that Pfizer was testing the shots on little kids and planned to soon ask for approval.
The actual child abuse is not that they want to give the kids the unnecessary and harmful injections, the child abuse is scaring kids so much over something that is virtually harmless to them. And it is exacerbated by the selfishness of adults who have no compunction over possibly harming then from the shot just so they can be less scared themselves.
Our society is very sick.
PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CHILDREN TO TAKE THE mRNA VACCINE. PERIOD.
Well this is the hill to die on. If you haven’t marched for medical freedom yet you better start now. I’ve been to 3 such protests and will continue to fight. HOLD THE LINE!!
Only Sheeple and the criminally insane would give this "vaccine" to any child.
I'm extremely concerned that we're not vaccinating fetuses. I feel that government officials should be present during sexual acts so they can inject COVID-19 vaccines at the moment of conception. Also, how can we get fetuses masked? Is there a surgical protocol for mask insertion in utero?
No chance I will be giving this to my girls 12 and 16. Both in private school in CA. I will homeschool them and then move. This as other countries are stopping the shots.
I need to share something from this morning among my Substack friends:
My husband and I tried to go on a rare breakfast date. Hostess asked me to put mask above my nose.
I did, but then cried through the entire breakfast - I can't even articulate why, I was just overcome with grief on so many levels. My poor husband. I don't think I will thrive under totalitarianism.
Just asking questions. Is the virus or technology different in Sweden and Denmark? No shots for under 30 in Sweden and 18 in Denmark. No lockdowns or masks passports in either country with a sharp decline in cases. What is different?
Yup. This is the hill I die on. Of all my son’s friends who’ve had COVID, (all aged 5-10) every single one had an extremely mild case, some with no symptoms at all (with their parents having just a bad cold/flu symptoms). In my county of 500,000 people, there have been zero covid deaths under the age of 30. My son has likely been exposed to COVID several times over the last 18 months and he’s not even had a sniffle. His doctor was actually very surprised that my son has been extremely healthy this whole time and no, we didn’t hide for 18 months but have been doing church and family and homeschool co-ops. More kids in the state of WA have died of drownings than COVID, yet we make every single kid and parent wear a life vest every time they go swimming (JP Sears has an amazing satire video comparing mandating life jackets to vaccines).
The scary thing is I live in WA state and Inslee has the strictest vaccine mandate in the nation for state and healthcare workers which means he will be making a vaxx mandate for kids, I can guarantee it. My son is homeschooled so it shouldn’t affect us to much, unless they start going crazy with vaccine passports. I really hope they don’t do vaccine passports for domestic travel. But if they do, we can drive a lot of places in our Tesla. Yay for living on the west coast with lots of super chargers. And Idaho is only a 6 hour drive and it’s the land of the free. Regardless, I know very few parents excited to give their kids the vaccine. Mostly it’s parents who haven’t allowed their kids to basically do anything out of the house for 18 months. I’d be more concerned with immunity debt than COVID but that’s me.
Absolute child abuse. This is so unnecessary but is already being pushed by the public school system. Never will my children receive these evil shots.
110% with ya but Texas froze over last yr, choose a different metaphor
The pharmaceutical industrial complex. Is now running the US & other countries. Croatia stopped. Sweden halting Moderna. More. This is the greatest wealth redistribution in world history. Why such draconian censorship? Why have superb physicians been pilloried & silenced? Rhetorical. This is NOT about public health but control. And we are racing towards a CCP social credit system. Mounting evidence that the vax causes the virus. This is discussed in the McCullough presentation.
Wow Yglesias just owned himself. If severe Covid is so rare in children that we cannot even generate the statistical power to measure a treatment effect, can we just agree it's not worth forcing the treatment on them? That should be tautologically obvious.
The momentum behind this injection push is very strong. The only thing that will stop it is an unmovable object. I ain't moving.
This is infuriating. My stupid brother and sister-in-law nevertheless cannot wait to inject my 5 year old nephew with this poison.
2 papers in NEJM show risk of myocarditis in young men is 1 in 8,000. Risk of death from covid in that age group is 1 in 15,000. Pretzel logic to try and get kids to take this "vaccine". It's an aberration and contrary to the Hippocratic Oath doctors take.
At least you don’t live in California where Emperor Newsom has used executive order to mandate the vaccine as soon as it is FDA approved in order to attend public AND private school. Any faith that the FDA won’t rush the approval through like they did for over 16s? We have a 3rd and 5th grader who both tested positive for antibodies after we got covid in July. We are shopping for a house in Florida.
The problem is that you have this Scott Gotleib narrative out there - that the pandemic will not end until children are vaccinated...
So we just found out in our community of around 500,00 a 15 year old boy died two days after the vaccine. It was never reported in June and only came to light after someone posted on social media. Lots of covering up and excuses from Health people but basically it sounds like blood clots. So unnecessary!!
Evil. Evil. Evil. Thank you, Alex, for EVERYTHING you are doing to expose it. I am trying to discern how I can help to fight the madness. Expressing my angst to my 26 year old son, he said “Mom, just say what is true.”
I can't believe I'm living in a generation where this is happening. It's so shocking and disturbing what governments / pharma / big tech / media are forcing on children. Heartbreaking and infuriating. We need entire countries rising up against this.
Translation: Pfizer wishes to kill your children. Is there really any other way to say it? When will Pfizer's Board, Officers & Employees be held accountable for this madness?
It will be fun to see the way folks who have been dreaming about child Covid vaccinations grapple with the very real fact that it’s impossible to tell whether or not the vaccines do anything. Of all the monstrous stupidity over the past 19 months, the idea of injecting kids with medication for no obvious clinical reason is the crown jewel of dipshittery.
Trudeau banning unvaxed on planes, trains and boats ( incl kids - 12 year and over ...). I hope Canada authorizes this only so it will blow up his whole house of cards ( maybe people will then realize if they come after their 5 year olds) . Until we have some critical mass.....the sheep here love these mandates. Im vaxed but leave the kids ALONE. Leave everyone ALONE.
This is how Pfizer's Lipitor got approval. They only showed that it lowered blood cholesterol. They did not show that chemically lowering blood cholesterol would have any positive impact on a person's health. In their subsequent study that showed it reduced subsequent heart attacks in post-heart attack patients, the Lipitor group had greater all-cause deaths even though they had fewer heart attacks than the comparator group. A lot of slight of hand. Pfizer does a lot more D than R in its Research and [marketing] Development.
About a year ago (before the vaxx but anticipating its quick arrival) a good friend of mine said the battle of this forced inoculation will be fought and won by the hands of all the united Moms of the world. Let this be true. Lets unite and make it happen. The line is drawn with our kids.
Study from Toxicology Reports: "Why are we vaccinating Children Against covid-19?"
Very sobering stuff about how toxic these clotshots are for everyone. The authors refuse to call them "vaccines."
There is ZERO threshold for “vac” death & injury rates. Unprecedented in world history. Urging everyone to watch Dr. Peter McCullough’s 10/2 presentation. This must stop now! https://rumble.com/vnbv86-winning-the-war-against-therapeutic-nihilism-and-trusted-treatments-vs-unte.html
Every single waiver of immunity for Big Pharma needs to be rescinded! This new request should be treated as a new request, complete with financial and criminal liabilities attached. Our children are not lab rats. If these Pharmaceutical giants are not willing to stand behind their products, then they should go pound sand.
Scott Gottlieb’s convo at the pearly gates will be real interesting.
Pfizer is asking? If the jab was good medicine, wouldn't physicians be asking? Why does the company who stands to profit have any say at all?
Great summary- It's all about the indemnity. Has nothing to do with public health. No kids schedule = no permanent indemnity for pharma and doctors under law.
They won't sell any vaccine without a full indemnity. That's how good and reliable vaccines are. "Science" loves them as long as no one is responsible. These folks have found they can push complete garbage and still be fine. No thanks. Not for my kids.
I can’t wait to hear Fauci the Fraud say, “follow the science”. What he really means, is follow Pfizer anywhere and always. Do we know what kind of financial relationship he has with either Pfizer or Moderna? There’s something rotten going on…
How many shares of Pfizer stock were distributed on Capitol Hill NY Pfizer lobbyists? Not to mention the FDA and the CDC?
Bottom line there is ZERO long-term safety in children. I would not give it to my own children and I will NOT be recommending it to my patient’s families. Of course, I could lose my medical license and board certification in pediatrics for saying that according to the threatening letter I recently received warning me about speaking out against the Covid vaccines 😡
"Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives." How is Covid a "serious or life threatening disease to kids ages 5-11? I don't even know this country anymore.
Pharma gonna pharma. And they own the FDA. And the CDC. And the NIH. Next up: "baby vaccine mandates" - because the babies need to step up, do their part, and take the shot to "save grandma." So we can all "get back to normal." Or whatever.
They’re coming for the kids now. Can our pets be far behind? The Pfizer Whozagoodboy vaxx coming soon to a vet near you. 🤷🏻♀️
"Kids don't need a ******* COVID vaccine." -Pfizer scientist caught on camera by Project Veritas.
Well, fuck them. And if any NY-based parents are interested, I am hosting a strategy meeting for parents @NYParentsforChoice this Friday at 7pm. Zoom link will be posted.
They (FDA, CDC, politicians) are offering our children up on a sacrificial alter so they can score political points. And Pfizer is just flat out dishonest and greedy. Praying for my granddaughters.
Fox just did a piece on this, talked to a doctor, shoshana internal medicine, never not once did they talk about whether the vaccine was safe or effective off necessary for children! they just railed on about how everybody needs to get in line.
I'm changing the channel now because Fox got in line too. I know everybody's been saying that for a year now but it's finally pretty clear they've sided with their money and NOT the truth or anything like fair and balanced. I'M DISGUSTED.
The rarity of serious disease in kids doesn’t warrant vaccines. Appendicitis is far more frequent. Are we proposing a nationwide push to have “Appendectomy Week” where we’d put all the kids to sleep and remove the appendix menace from ever flaring up.
When are we going to say “Enough”, you can’t harm the kids.
As a doc who has analyzed the numbers, I couldn’t recommend this blanket approach.
The media has convinced people that the unvaccinated are evil and the vaccine is the only way to be saved. Now they will risk their own kids health rather than question the media narrative. Sickening to watch.
This is just the cherry on top of the single greatest failure in public health in the history of the world. Whatever it’s origins in Wuhan (lab leak), we were thankfully graced with a fast spreading airborne virus that had a very clear risk profile. It killed the old, the obese, and those with pretty identifiable disease risk factors. This was known in early 2020. The mortality curve swung up tightly bound to age. Obesity is the second biggest issue. It was NEVER kids ANYWHERE around the world. We had the opportunity to target our policies including medication, but also most importantly messaging, at the populations actually at risk. But no. Instead we had to behave as if everybody, including children, were at equal risk. This is why we are where we are, talking about vaccinating children with a medication that has no medical benefit while we simultaneously medicate young men at negligible risk with a drug that eats at the body’s flagship organ. This is nothing short of pathetic. The only reason you medicate somebody - LITERALLY THE ONLY REASON - is because you know the medication will clinically have a positive medical impact on their life. I’m not sure there is a more clear cut and obvious case of unnecessary medical intervention than what we are all discussing today. This is pure insanity. And people want their beloved government to mandate it. Mandate what is plainly not necessary and has no evident benefit to the patient or society. Now that I think about, that sounds like the ideal role for a government.
Why hasn't Rogan released your podcast yet? Wonder if the Spotify censors are having their way with it.
I cannot think of anything worse, children have statistically zero risk from covid, but significant risk from the vaccine. Do not do this to your children.
