The CDC says that every child six months and older should get the COVID vaccine. However, many people are unaware that the COVID vaccine for children is authorized for emergency use only. This means much shorter trial times (8 weeks instead of the usual 5 to 10 years) and, therefore, no data on any potential long-term adverse effects.
The FDA’s briefing document for the Pfizer vaccine states: “risk of vaccine-enhanced disease over time… remains unknown and needs to be evaluated further in ongoing clinical trials and in observational studies.” (Source – page 49)
Also, the fact sheet for Pfizer’s COVID vaccine says that it “has not been evaluated for the potential to cause carcinogenicity, genotoxicity, or impairment of male fertility.” (Source – Page 21). Note: Carcinogenicity is the potential for a substance to cause cancer. Genotoxicity is the potential for a substance to cause damage to DNA or genetic information.
The CDC argues these potential risks are justified because there is a health emergency that is addressed with the vaccine. But is there really a health emergency for children? This is the most pressing question that all parents should be asking.
To answer this question honestly and objectively we must look at the data.
According to this preprint study, the COVID infection fatality rate for those under 20 years of age is a staggering 0.0003%. Furthermore, there don’t appear to be any documented and confirmed cases of generally healthy children dying from COVID.
According to Johns Hopkins researchers, of all patients who died of COVID-19, 83.29% of them had at least one comorbidity (Source – Page 17). Comorbidities include developmental disorders, intellectual disabilities, spina bifida, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer, etc.
The same study also found: “Among patients with no comorbidities [generally healthy patients] the youngest age group, 0 to 18, had 0.00 percent mortality (no deaths)” during the five month study period, which preceded the vaccine rollout (Source – Page 20). See the chart below.
Dr. Marty Makary, who has published over 250 peer-reviewed scientific articles, said: “My research team at Johns Hopkins worked with the nonprofit FAIR Health to analyze approximately 48,000 children under 18 diagnosed with Covid in health-insurance data from April to August 2020. Our report found a mortality rate of zero among children without a pre-existing medical condition such as leukemia.” (Source)
A joint report from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association observed that “children were 0.00%-0.24% of all COVID-19 deaths, and 3 [U.S.] states reported zero child deaths. In states reporting, 0.00%-0.01% of all child COVID-19 cases resulted in death.” (Source – Page 4)
A study published in The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal found: “The case fatality rate in children was 0.076 per 1,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases. There were 5 fatalities reported among the COVID-19 cases in children, all with an underlying major medical condition (2 patients with malignancies, aged 11 years old; 3 patients with complex genetic disorders, aged 1 month, 7 months and 16 years).” (Source)
Given this data, it should behoove any reasonable parent to ask… Where is the COVID emergency for generally healthy children? The data clearly shows that generally healthy children are largely unaffected by COVID. And if, indeed, there is no real emergency for them, why are we giving them an “emergency use” vaccine which could have catastrophic health consequences?
Speaking on the issue of prioritizing vaccinations, WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan said on January 18, 2022: “There’s no evidence right now that healthy children or healthy adolescents need [COVID] boosters — no evidence at all.” Watch the 1-minute video below…
Bill Gates, who funds many health initiatives and to whom many in the media have looked to for pandemic guidance, said COVID-19 has a “fairly low fatality rate” and is a “disease mainly of the elderly.” (Source)

Some may argue that death is not the only outcome. That many children are hospitalized due to COVID, and this should also be prevented.
But a Newsweek article points out that “COVID-19 hospitalizations among children have been inflated by at least 40 percent” and that “hospitalizations among children were already extremely low relative to adults, but the new figures cut the key coronavirus metric by nearly half and make the actual rates among kids even smaller.”
In an MSNBC interview Dr. Anthony Fauci acknowledged that hospitalizations among children were being overcounted, saying: “If you look at the children who are hospitalized, many of them are hospitalized with COVID as opposed to because of COVID. And what we mean by that… If a child goes in the hospital they automatically get tested for COVID and they get counted as a COVID hospitalized individual. When, in fact, they may go in for a broken leg or appendicitis or something like that. So it’s overcounting.”
There was also an acknowledgment by a health official that at certain times during the pandemic COVID deaths were being overcounted. Dr. Ngozi Ezike of the Illinois Department of Public Health said on April 19, 2020: “Everyone who’s listed as a COVID death doesn’t mean that that was the cause of the death.” (Source)
In senate testimony, CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield lended insight into possible motivations for such overcounting by reflecting on past experiences with other diseases: “We’ve seen this in other disease processes too… in the HIV epidemic somebody may have a heart attack but also have HIV. The hospital would prefer the DRG [diagnosis-related group] for HIV ‘cause there’s greater reimbursement.” (Source)
COVID hospitalizations among children have always been relatively low, certainly not at a level that can reasonably be considered an “emergency”, especially with the much less virulent Omicron variant.
Dr. Eliza Holland and Dr. Nikki Johnson, both pediatricians, penned an Op-Ed in The Wall Street Journal in which they said: “the risk of serious disease from Covid has always been low in otherwise healthy children.” (Source)
A UK Government publication entitled COVID-19 Green Book states: “Children and young people have a very low risk of COVID-19, severe disease or death due to SARS-CoV-2 compared to adults.” (Source – Page 38)
New York Times article states: “For children without a serious medical condition, the danger of severe Covid is so low as to be difficult to quantify.”
On June 8, 2021 Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla tweeted: “…data shows that severe COVID19 is rare in children…” (See image below. Credit: The Highwire)
Some medical professionals have expressed concern over a condition called Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) which can develop as a result of COVID. While MIS-C can cause death, Mayo Clinic states: “MIS-C is rare” and that “most children who have MIS-C eventually get better with medical care.” (Source)
Possible Response #2

Some people may argue that a vaccine is needed because even one child dying from COVID is too many.

While it is tragic that some children have died from COVID and that, indeed, even one death is too many, a 0.0003% fatality rate does not constitute an emergency necessitating vaccines that can potentially have fatal or debilitating adverse effects. If the argument, then, is that these effects are extremely rare, the same argument can be made that deaths from COVID among generally healthy children are also extremely rare.

According to analysts in this article: “Covid-19 has killed 280 children under 18 from January through September 2021, the time span in which the alpha and delta variants were active. Flu and pneumonia, heart disease, drowning, guns, and motor vehicles were all deadlier to children during the same time periods annually from 2015 to 2019 (the latest years with available data).”

On average, healthy U.S. children ages 0 to 14 are five times more likely to die in a car accident than from COVID-19 (Source). See the chart below.So it seems fair to ask… Why are we not declaring an emergency for children riding in automobiles?

Dr. Scott Jensen said: “I just don’t understand why we are so hell-bent on vaccinating kids under the age of 20 or 30 that have a statistically 0% chance of dying of COVID-19 disease. When we know that there are clearly evidences that this vaccine is problematic in ways we’ve never seen before, wherein the vaccine wasn’t pulled from the market.” (Source at 23:36)

Dr. Richard Fleming, cardiologist, said: “There’s no data that shows [the COVID vaccine] is beneficial for the children.” (Source at 57:04)

Dr. Drew Pinsky said: “Vaccine therapies are usually targeted. They are shingles vaccine for people over the age of 60. It’s pneumonia vaccine for people over the age of 60. I don’t give those to 12 year olds. It’s yellow fever vaccine for people traveling to endemic areas… It doesn’t make any sense to me that [the COVID vaccine] is the one and only vaccine that is completely indiscriminately distributed even though the primary illness is in the adult.” (Source at 1:00:50)

So these questions remain… Where is the COVID emergency for generally healthy children? And if there is no real emergency for them, why are we giving them a vaccine that is meant for emergency use only?
