AS A former primary and preschool teacher, I have been present on a variety of occasions when the inevitable accident happens and a stream of blood spurts forth. I’ve seen the initial shock and terror that often accompanies a sudden bout of pain for a child.
As a result, the latest ‘safety data’ released here in New Zealand by Medsafe, the medicines and medical devices safety authority is revolting reading.
For while much of the nation continues to argue whether the right to free protest should be allowed, the specifics surrounding the ‘adverse effects’ suffered by the nation’s youngest since the vaccine was made available to them last month crept under the radar.
To date, 51,932 ‘adverse events following immunisation’ (AEFI) reports have been filed across all age groups since the vaccine rollout began in March 2021.
Of those events, only 2,460 were deemed ‘serious’. A note below the initial statistics, highlighted in bold lettering, reads: The protective benefits of vaccination against COVID-19 far outweigh the potential risks of vaccination.
Well, let’s look into that.
It is important to remember that there is a negligible risk of ‘serious’ harm or death via Covid infection for children, and that has remained a very consistent fact since the beginning of the pandemic despite the news media’s ongoing attempts to fear-monger every type of new and mutated ‘variant’.
The risks are increased for any child (or anyone) with any comorbidities such as obesity or diabetes, or if they are immunocompromised, but again, this is wholly consistent with research trends discovered at the very beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak, regardless of Greek alphabet namesakes. In these cases, vaccination may provide some benefit.
But for the vast majority of healthy children, recent data from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association suggests that severity tends to remain mild, and among evidence collected from 46 of 50 US states, children accounted for 0.00 per cent to 0.23 per cent of all Covid-19 deaths.
Lest we forget, a 0.096 per cent infection mortality rate (IFR) was the average for all ages, not just children. In its current form, Covid has, in fact, recently been labelled ‘a common cold’ by Dr Bryan Betty, the medical director of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners.
One really does have to wonder, then, why on earth are children being vaccinated in very large numbers (221,462 first doses or 46 per cent of all 5-11-year-olds here in New Zealand) against a virus that puts them at zero risk? Why are apparently-programmable parents gleefully packing their offspring into cars on day trips out, not to the seaside, but to stand in line under summer sun heat to take a medical cocktail that even the manufacturers admit on their own vaccine fact sheet has no safety or efficacy data for children? Dare I mention Munchausen syndrome by proxy?
Vaccine percentages aren’t just a numbers game to be played like a political football between nation states as a measure of policy success. There’s a lot more to it.
Currently, there have been 147 all-age deaths (including seven 10-29-year-olds) reported to the NZ Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring(CARM), after the administration of the Pfizer vaccine.
Medsafe say that 60 of these deaths are ‘unlikely related’ to the vaccine; 64 ‘could not be assessed’ due to insufficient information; 21 are ‘still under investigation’ and two have been confirmed to be ‘likely’ deaths due to vaccine-induced myocarditis (inflammation of the heart).
Myocarditis was, in fact, singled out by Medsafe in an ‘Alert communication’ as a ‘rare adverse reaction’ as early as July 21, 2021, which suggests it wasn’t that rare considering the initial vaccine distribution programme in New Zealand, specifically, was only four months old.
Honestly, who had ever heard of myocarditis pre-2020?
Delve a little deeper into the adverse effects database, and one may well weep, especially having established the seemingly non-existent ‘reward’ of childhood inoculation comparative to Covid’s all-round peril. It is here that any number of side effects and ailments can be found in the 0-9 and 10-19 age brackets following injection.
In all, over the past one month of childhood vaccination, approximately 94 ‘non-serious’ reactions were reported in boys and girls, many with multiple reactions simultaneously. In 216 males, 218 females and three whose gender was not recorded, 1,135 ‘adverse events’ were determined.
Whilst all these reactions are classified as ‘minor’ by Medsafe (scroll down to find more serious ones for all ages found here), it is essential to put them in the context of childhood ‘trauma’, not just physiologically, but psychologically. As I have pointed out, this is an age group that suffers vastly more than adults wherever and whenever the odd scrape and scratch may come.
How then, should we, the adults, parents and guardians, navigate the tragically unnecessary suffering of vaccine-induced anaphylaxis, anxiety, Bell’s palsy, blistering, blurred vision, fainting, myocarditis, lung clots, seizure, skin rash, swelling, vomiting and even diabetes, which have all been catalogued just this past month?
Are we really supposed to believe this is a price worth paying? That pumping our most innocent full of Big Pharma liquid gold must be the only way to protect them? A necessary cost in service to the lie that always was everlasting vaccination on behalf of some egregiously media-manipulated ‘greater good’? What, by the way, ever happened to ‘protecting our most vulnerable’?
No. This isn’t protection. This is proactive injury. Be warned, Great Britain, and leave the kids alone.
