(Jun. 18, 2022) — In what has been characterized as an “emergency” session, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is meeting for the second day on Saturday morning on the subject of COVID-19 vaccinations for children aged six months through under five years with Pfizer and Moderna products.
According to “Stand for Health Freedom,” meetings on Friday and Saturday were scheduled even though a regularly-scheduled meeting was to be held next week.
Blogger Toby Rogers claims to have been the first to report the announcement of the special meetings on Thursday.
The meetings follow those on Tuesday and Wednesday of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC), which voted unanimously to approve the injections for very young children after hearing hours of public comments from advocates and those concerned about safety, efficacy and the absence of long-term clinical data.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “75% of children and teens had COVID-19 by February.”
In a recent exchange between NAIAD Director Dr. Anthony S. Fauci and Sen. Rand Paul (R) of Kentucky, Fauci, who is presumably a four-time COVID vaccine recipient, admitted there is no data showing that COVID “booster shots” in children prevent death and/or hospitalization.
A speaker addressing the conferees Saturday morning confirmed that vaccines for children under five will begin to be accessible “on Monday.” Although not available at all locations, he said, efforts will “ramp up” over the coming weeks and months.
“It is important to get shots into arms and take advantage of every opportunity…” a self-identified pediatrician told the gathering at 10:32 a.m.
“Don’t waste an opportunity to vaccinate a child,” another participant clarified.
According to a speaker at 10:39 a.m., COVID-19 is a “major” cause of death among young children.
The discussion in the first half-hour was virtually devoid of any mention of the thousands of injuries and deaths believed to have arisen as a result of COVID-19 shots, which did not undergo the customary years of clinical trials and follow-up prior to receiving EUA and are generally not compensated by the federal government.
At 10:43 a.m., a presentation on “benefits and harms” began.
According to Stand for Health Freedom in a lengthy blog post with extensive footnoting, “The FDA has a history of taking risks with our children’s lives.”
In February, The New York Times reported the CDC as “not publishing large portions of the Covid data it collects.”
In December, Dr. Robert W. Malone, an early pioneer of the mRNA technology used by Pfizer and Moderna in their COVID-19 injections, warned parents that the substances could have “irreversible and potentially permanently damaging” effects on their children.
According to Megan Redshaw of Children’s Health Defense (CHD) on Friday, the the CDC, through its Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), “released new data showing a total of 1,301,356 reports of adverse events following COVID-19 vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and June 10, 2022, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). That’s an increase of 6,027 adverse events over the previous week.”
Update, 3:10 p.m. EDT: At 3:08 p.m. and perhaps earlier, the top trend on Twitter declared that ACIP “unanimously” approved the shots for the six-month to under-five age group. “CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky is expected to sign off on the recommendation this weekend, The New York Times and CNBC report,” the news item states. “In a press briefing, The White House said vaccines for children under five are expected to be available by Tuesday, June 21.”
