Scientific paper why children & teachers should NOT be vaccinated against COVID-19

A Scientific Paper demonstrates why children (and teachers) should not be vaccinated against COVID-19, much less forced to do so.

“Why are we vaccinating children against COVID-19?”

Available online 14 September 2021. Toxicology Reports, Vol 8, 2021, Pages 1665-1684


“Bulk of COVID-19 per capita deaths occur in elderly with high comorbidities.”

“Per capita COVID-19 deaths are negligible in children… the normalized post-inoculation deaths are small, but not negligible, in children.”

“the elderly should be inoculated and not the children.”


“COVID-19 inoculations prevents neither viral infection nor transmission. Since its main function in practice appears to be symptom suppression, it is operationally a ‘treatment’.”


The clinical trials were very limited in scope and time, and such small size for children that they have poor predictive power.  They did not predict the MANY DEATHS (16,766 through 10/9/2021, 65% of total over 31 years and seriousness of short-term adverse events reported in CDC/FDA’s VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) that have far exceeded all the other vaccines since 1990. Nor have trials addressed “the potential extent of the underlying pre-symptomatic damage that has occurred as a result of the inoculations.” 


“For children the chances of death from COVID-19 are negligible, but the chances of serious damage over their lifetime from the toxic inoculations are not negligible.”


Particular concern affecting adolescents are the 1,201 children (13% of the total 9,470) VAERS COVID Vaccine Myocarditis/Pericarditis Reports through Oct 08, 2021; it is shocking to compare 1,201 with only 17 post flu vaccine Myocarditis/Pericarditis reports since 1990!


Clinical trials did not address mid- or long-term effects that, if serious, would be borne by children/ adolescents for potentially decades.


“There appears to be modest benefit from the inoculations to the elderly population most at risk, no benefit to the younger population not at risk, and much potential for harm from the inoculations to both populations. It is unclear why this mass inoculation for all groups is being done, being allowed, and being promoted.”


Additional comments:

All COVID-19 inoculations available in the US today are still under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA because only the BioNTech version was approved, and it is “legally distinct” from the Pfizer product, which is still EUA.  By federal law no one can be required to take an EUA product, “ensure that individuals to whom the product is administered are informed … of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product.”   21 U.S. Code § 360bbb–3(e)(1)(A) (ii)(III)


Further, there are therapeutics available to treat SARS-CoV-2, which prohibits the authorization of vaccines.


For the sake of the children today and their futures, please do not require any Covid vaccinations in Virginia schools.
