Covid vaccines for babies have now been approved in the UK.
According to the UK medicines regulator (MHRA) the “lower-dose Pfizer jab is safe and effective for kids aged 6 months and above”. The new approval covers young children from the age of 6 months to 4 years.
So what evidence shows the safety and effectiveness of the Covid jabs for babies and young children. Indeed what evidence is there that shows the need for vaccinating children at all?
Daily Sceptic reports: What is the Covid risk to children without vaccination?
Recently published analysis by Professor John Ioannidis shows persons 0-19 have a 0.0003% risk of death. For children 0-10 years of age the risk of severe outcome and death from Covid is basically zero.
In the U.S.,analysis of the FDA’s data shows the risk of any child dying of COVID-19 is 0.000015 % and a study by the universities of Leeds and Leicester found that there had been no deaths of healthy children in the U.S.
In Canada, the Canadian Health Alliance states: “Without a serious pre-existing medical condition, the risk of death is statistically zero.”
In the U.K., according to Professor Norman Fenton, a world leading expert on risk assessment and statistics with Queen Mary University of London: “No healthy children died in the U.K. in 2020”; of the eight children who died, seven had life threatening conditions and one had a very serious condition.
That about sums up the risk to children: the evidence shows that children are not at risk.
