Action – Read & Share: Do our children and teens need the COVID vaccination?
1. Natural Immunity
“80-98% of the world population likely has a significant degree of pre-existing immunity against SARS-CoV-2. COVID-19 shares 65-82% genome with other main Coronaviruses. Common coronavirus colds permanently circulate the planet, and have been infecting people for centuries: billions of people have had to gain immunity against the most immunogenic parts of this long string of RNA. Even before it ever existed, people were largely immunised against COVID-19. This is a well-known concept called cross-immunity that exists also for the flu. Cross-immunity is a natural immunological safety net, most likely, the principal reason for the relative mildness of this pandemic.” The Business Market Journal: August 16, 2021 (1)
“Children with COVID-19 typically recover within a week, and few experience long-lasting symptoms, according to a large study conducted in the UK. Most experience few symptoms and almost all recover within 8 weeks, the first detailed description of the disease in symptomatic children aged between 5 and 17 has found. A study, reported in the Lancet Child and Adolescent health, focussed on data from 1,734 children who tested positive for the disease and whose symptoms were reported regularly by their families until they were healthy again. “It is reassuring that the number of children experiencing long lasting symptoms of Covid-19 is low”, said Prof Emma Duncan, lead author of the study, from King’s College London.”” The Irish Times: August 3, 2021.(2)
“More than 100 Ontario youth sent to hospital for vaccine-related heart problems “As of Aug 7, there were 106 incidents of myocarditis and pericarditis in people under the age of 25. Public Health Ontario adds that there were 31 cases in the 12-17 year old age group and 75 cases in 18-24 year olds. 80% of all cases were in males.” The Toronto Sun: September 3, 2021 (3)
“Young males are six times more likely to suffer from heart problems after being jabbed than be hospitalised from coronavirus, study finds. A team led by Dr Tracey Hoeg at the University of California investigated the rate of cardiac myocarditis and chest pain in children aged 12 – 17 following their second dose of the vaccine. They then compared this with the likelihood of children needing hospital treatment owing to Covid-19, at times of low, moderate and high rates of hospitalisation. The risk from the vaccine is 6.1 times higher” The Telegraph: September 9, 2021. (4)
Why is the Australian Government recommending vaccinating children and teenagers when the research shows negligible risk from Covid infection in this age group?
What data set is the TGA using to arrive at the vaccine recommendation for 12 – 18 year olds?
How is the risk of Myocarditis and Pericarditis in children being assessed by the Australian government?
