Why Do They Want to Vaccinate Children?

“FDA advisory panel OKs Pfizer vaccine for children 5 to 11,” announced a recent NBC News headline.

How could a panel that is supposedly composed of rational clear-headed scientists make such an inexplicable recommendation?

Consider the following facts.

According to a presentation by Fiona Havers, who works at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and who is a member of the agency’s COVID-19 Response Team, “[D]uring the 12-month period October 2, 2020 through October 3, 2021, there were 66 COVID-19 associated deaths in children 5-11.”

Yes, you read it right. In the last twelve months there were only 66 Covid-related deaths in the 5 to 11 demographic in the whole of the United States of America.

To give you a sense of perspective, children in that age bracket are three hundred percent more likely to be murdered (207 deaths) and thirty percent more likely to die of flu and pneumonia (84 deaths) than they are to die of Covid.

To give another point of comparison, according to the CDC in 2019, “608 child passengers age 12 and younger died in motor vehicle crashes.”

Please contemplate this point well. Children under 12 years of age are nearly 1000 percent more likely to be killed in a vehicular mishap than to die of Covid-19.

One more piece of reference data. According to Statista, there were 20 deaths and a hundred injuries due to lighting strikes in the United States in 2019. Thus, your child is nearly 200 percent more likely to be struck by lightning than to be felled by Covid.

But even this does not tell the full story, because not all of those unfortunate 66 children who died with Covid died of Covid. Most of them had serious underlying conditions, which according to Fiona Havers, included:

“… obesity, chronic metabolic disease, feeding tube dependence, cardiovascular disease, neurologic disorders, chronic lung disease, blood disorders, immunosuppressed conditions, and ’other’ conditions.’”

Thus, most – if not all – of the children in the 5-11 age bracket who died while being Covid positive suffered from serious, life-threatening co-morbidities.

To state the situation in a different way, it is virtually unheard of for an active, healthy child to die of Covid-19. For all practical purposes, the chance of your healthy child’s dying of this disease is zero.

Even the scare-mongering New York Times had to concede that to healthy children “the danger of severe Covid is so low as to be difficult to quantify.” In other words, the risk is essentially non-existent.

The obvious question is this: Why are we going to mass vaccinate healthy children against Covid-19 given that they face virtually no serious risk from this particular disease?

The only valid medical reason for vaccination of this age cohort would be to stop the spread of infection.
