Wyoming State Health Officer Alexia Harrist, adhering to guidelines laid out by the Centers for Disease Control, recommended that children as young as six months old should be injected with COVID-19 drugs. Her advice, contained in a news release Monday from the Wyoming Department of Health, follows the “emergency authorization” by the Food and Drug Administration of both the Pfizer and Moderna series of shots for children under the age of five.

The vaccine advisers to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted unanimously, 21-0, on Saturday in support of making the USA the first country to authorize the shots for babies and toddlers.

Subjecting kids to the controversial mRNA therapy drugs, especially a booster, is the latest battleground in the war over how to deal with the coronavirus, which originated in China. The Pfizer shot for children involves a three-injection series. The Moderna serum is a two-shot regimen. During a congressional hearing last week in Washington, Senator Rand Paul grilled Dr. Anthony Faucci over promoting jabs for children while refusing to provide data proving their effectiveness or necessity.

During the testy back and forth, Senator Paul also grilled Faucci about federal health bureaucrats receiving royalty payments from the Big Pharma companies that they are supposed to be overseeing on behalf of the American people.

At issue here is the flow of money between the National Institutes of Health, as well as the Federal Drug Administration, and the companies and groups they work with. It goes to the heart of a critical question: Are medical authorities comprised enough to minimize the risk factors of the medicines they approve. A case in point is the risk factor to boys who take the COVID shots.

The FDA met on June 15th, and despite little evidence of the drug’s efficacy and the lack of data on long-term harm, voted to go ahead. Meanwhile, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky cleared the way for the vaccinations to be administered to kids this week.

An independent medical group comprised of doctors, scientists, economists, psychologists and other academic experts known as HART looked into the Pfizer vaccine trial that resulted in the FDA approval this past weekend. Dr. Clare Craig, a diagnostic pathologist with the group, reports that Pfizer recruited 4,526 children for their COVID vaccine trial, yet 3,000 didn’t make it to the end of the trial. Additionally, in the three-week waiting period after the first dose of the vaccine, 34 children got COVID and only 13 in the placebo group. In other words, during the Pfizer trials, vaccinated kids had a 30 percent higher chance of catching COVID in that three-week period than the ones who had not received the shot.

In the CDC’s carefully worded statement promoting the shots, Director Walensky did not say the mRNA jabs will prevent kids from getting or transmitting the coronavirus.

Resistance will be strong from parents. A study in April from the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 82 percent of parents with children under five are opposed to having their child injected with the freshly minted mRNA drugs. Nearly 40 percent said they would wait and see.

Only 18 percent of the parents surveyed are on board with the recommendations from health officials, like Dr. Harrist, who encourages everyone ages six months and older to receive COVID shots if they haven’t already.
