Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine To Be Given To Children Ages 5-11


CDC Recommends Pfizer’s Covid-19 Vaccine for Children Ages 5 to 11

by Corryn Wenzel/

On Tuesday evening, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Rochelle Walensky endorsed the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine for children aged 5 through 11. At a meeting earlier in the day, a panel of scientific advisers to the CDC had unanimously recommended that Pfizer’s lower-dose vaccine be given to elementary school–age children. The move, which clears the way for immediate vaccination, comes as a relief to parents and doctors eager to protect young kids against a possible spike in Covid-19 cases this fall and winter.

“Together, with science leading the charge, we have taken another important step forward in our nation’s fight against the virus that causes Covid-19,” Walensky said in  a statement Tuesday night. “We know millions of parents are eager to get their children vaccinated and with this decision, we now have recommended that about 28 million children receive a Covid-19 vaccine.”

Before their decision, members of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices spent an unusually long time speaking in support of the vaccine before they voted, according to CNN‘s Maggie Fox. The vaccines will be delivered in two injections that contain one-third of the adult dose, given three weeks apart.  Read More:

  1. Maybe not poison for adults, but it is with children. There’s no reason for a child with a covid survival rate of 99.995 percent, taking a vaccine exposing them to risks of acquiring myocarditis and pericarditis. Left alone, they will do fine untouched.

    • No real independent controlled studies. Here’s the kind of half-assed science Pfizer uses. Give kids 1/3 the dose as adults and same effectiveness. Based on what? Give adults 1/3 also as we are talking about cellular structures not body weight, right? All smoke and mirrors. Show me the factual basis for child doses. No can do.

    • Tommy Apeiron, how many hours have you devoted to study this issue ? Less than one ? On my side, I did more than a hundred hours on the topic so… I suggest you refrain from such empty comments if you can’t do more research.
      If you know what *angiotensin converting enzyme 2* is and it’s function are, AID (alveolar injury disorder) is, ADE (antibody dependent enhancement) is and the relation there is to the Spike Protein and how the latter was… *synthesized*, then IMO you earned the right to criticize me in a constructive manner.
