“The mainstream media has made it seem like, ‘Oh, we’re just one of many countries that is taking this step to protect our children from a terrible virus that they have a less than one percent chance of having any major issue with,’” said Kristi Leigh of InfoWars. “I mean, obviously they don’t add that last [piece of information], but they make it seem like this is no big deal, that everybody’s doing it.” (Related: Overwhelming evidence suggests giving children COVID-19 vaccines will only harm them.)
A 12-member advisory panel from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently voted unanimously to recommend the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines for children between six months to five years old.
“We’ve taken a major step forward today,” said Dr. Oliver Brooks, a member of the committee.
Hours later, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky gave the final signoff. This made roughly 18 million kids eligible for vaccinations.
“We know millions of parents and caregivers are eager to get their young children vaccinated, and with today’s decision, they can,” said Walensky in a statement.
The federal government is already gearing up for the expansion of vaccine distribution. It has ordered millions of additional doses for distribution to doctors, hospitals, clinics and other community health centers around the country.
Every state, except Florida, has already preordered millions of vaccines earmarked for children from the federal government.
Only a handful of countries vaccinate children under five
Following Walensky’s approval, the United States became one of just a handful of countries that are currently vaccinating children under five, including Argentina, Bahrain, Chile, China, Cuba, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. Hong Kong also provides vaccines for children under five.
The fact that seven other countries and Hong Kong provide vaccines to children under five has been used by mainstream media outlets to push the claim that America’s new policy is not particularly unique.
But when this claim is dissected, it is found that most of the countries are only vaccinating children as young as three. Cuba and Venezuela allow children as young as two to get vaccinated.
Furthermore, none of the other nations that vaccinate children younger than five use mRNA COVID-19 vaccines in a massive scale. Five out of the seven countries listed above use China’s inactivated vaccines. Cuba and Venezuela use the former’s protein subunit vaccine.
The United States is the first and only country to give vaccines to infants as young as six months, according to President Joe Biden.
“We are the first country to protect our youngest children with COVID-19 vaccines, offering safe and highly effective mRNA doses to children as young as six months old,” said Biden in a statement. “My administration secured vaccine doses for America’s youngest children and now with the FDA’s [Food and Drug Administration’s] authorization, we will begin shipping millions of vaccine doses for kids to thousands of locations parents know and trust – including pediatricians’ offices, children’s hospitals and pharmacies.”
Data shows that children are relatively safe from COVID-19. But with the mRNA vaccines, they are not.
