A recent study has revealed that children, between the ages of 12 and 17 are being diagnosed with horrific side effects after receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
According to a study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 400 children in that age range – an age range that is known for not having serious complications from the virus – have now been diagnosed with heart inflammation.
The condition, also known as myocarditis, occurred mostly in young boys, the study found. Heart inflammation wasn’t identified as an adverse reaction during the safety trials for the vaccine.
The CDC conducted the study by reviewing reports of adverse reactions to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) between Dec. 14, 2020, and July 16, 2021.
While the overall percentage of adverse reactions among vaccinated children is not very high, it’s a risk perhaps not worth taking considering the virus is far-less than lethal for the average child in that age group.
Of the 8.9 million children who received the vaccine as of July 16, VAERS received a total of 9,246 reports of adverse reactions, 90.7 percent of which were made up of “nonserious adverse events.” The 397 reports of heart inflammation made up 4.3 percent of the total.
The CDC’s Advisory Committee conducted a risk-benefit assessment based on the adverse reaction reports and not surprisingly, given their rhetoric on vaccines, continues to recommend the Pfizer vaccine to children aged 12 and older.
Also according to the study, 14 children died after receiving the Pfizer vaccine, according to the study. The cause of death still isn’t available for six of the cases. Of the eight other children, two died of intracranial hemorrhage, two died of pulmonary embolism, two committed suicide, one died of heart failure, and one died of a rare blood condition.
“Impressions regarding cause of death did not indicate a pattern suggestive of a causal relationship with vaccination; however, cause of death for some decedents is pending receipt of additional information,” Anne Hause, the CDC’s corresponding author, wrote.
Hause noted that the study is subject to several limitations, including the fact that “VAERS is a passive surveillance system and is subject to underreporting and reporting biases.”
Though the system is passive overall, doctors are required to report all serious events following vaccinations. The study also wasn’t designed to capture all cases of heart inflammation and only counted the reports which used the term “myocarditis.”
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an emergency use authorization for the Pfizer vaccine for children 16 years and older on Dec. 11, 2020. The FDA expanded the authorization to children 12 and over on May 10, 2021.
Complications from the vaccine only rise with the average age as well – which is the reason why many people globally are still hesitant about getting a the COVID-19 vaccine.
This has led to widespread protests internationally as they push back against something we may soon face here in the United States – a vaccine passport.
Thousands of people in France demonstrated against a special “health pass” and marched through Paris and other French cities on Saturday, with most of the protests being peaceful, with a few sporadic clashes.
Some 3,000 security forces deployed around Paris for the third weekend of protests against the pass, which will be required soon to enter restaurants and other places.
Meanwhile, a court in Berlin declared over the weekend that anti-lockdown protests were illegal, leading to the arrests of demonstrators.
In Italy, thousands of anti-vaccine-pass demonstrators marched in cities, including Rome, Milan, and Naples, for the second consecutive week. Milan demonstrators stopped outside of the city’s courthouse chanting “Truth!” “Shame!” and “Liberty!” In Rome, they marched behind a banner reading “Resistance.” Those demonstrations were noisy but peaceful.
Italian authorities have also approved the implementation of a health pass to enter bars, restaurants, and other venues. Critics of the measure argue that it’s draconian and infringes on basic personal liberties.
A teacher protesting in Paris told The Guardian that the health pass policy is creating segregation in France.
“We’re creating a segregated society, and I think it is unbelievable to be doing this in the country of human rights,” Anne, who didn’t provide her last name, told The Guardian.
“So I took to the streets; I have never protested before in my life … I think our freedom is in danger.”
