Despite low risk of severe COVID-19 infection for children and younger age groups, the CDC says children should get the vaccine.

The CDC has released new guidance encouraging everyone over six months old to receive the latest COVID-19 and flu vaccines this fall to prepare for the winter season. This applies to everyone, whether or not they have already received a COVID-19 vaccination. The agency assures that it is safe to receive both vaccines at the same time and that it is important to prevent severe outcomes.

The CDC stated that the “2024-2025 flu vaccines will all be trivalent and will protect against an H1N1, H3N2, and a B/Victoria lineage virus. The composition of this season’s vaccine, compared to last, has been updated with a new influenza A(H3N2) virus.

In the press release, the CDC states “To date, hundreds of millions of people have safely received a COVID-19 vaccine under the most intense vaccine safety monitoring in United States history.” That fact has been challenged in court as the PREP Act immunity provided to the vaccine manufacturers is done so on the basis that vaccine-injured individuals will receive financial compensation for the harms done to them from the vaccine. A backlog of reports indicates that the program is not functioning as intended.

Furthermore, the V-safe data collected under “the most intense vaccine safety monitoring in United States history” required a lawsuit to obtain the most important free-text data, which is still being released in monthly installments. That data revealed a minimum of 500 miscarriage reports, a number of deaths, and several other concerning health reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine. Only about half the data has been released so far.

The CDC data includes a table that outlines comorbidities that were also involved in the deaths of individuals who died from COVID-19. In the description, the CDC says, “For over 5% of these deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned on the death certificate. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 4.0 additional conditions or causes per death.”

The CDC data also includes information about the number of total deaths from each age group for the year as well as deaths specifically from COVID-19 in the United States. The age group of 0-17 had 23,954 deaths from all causes and 137 involving COVID-19. Among all deaths in this age group, about a half percent of all deaths involved COVID-19 or one out of 175 deaths. The 18-29 age group has an even lower proportion of deaths involving COVID-19, with just one out of 210 deaths.

The CDC seemingly contradicts itself by saying  75,500 people died from COVID-19 in 2023, but their data set shows 51,684. Among the data set provided, 70% of all deaths involving COVID-19 were individuals above the age of 75. 39.4% is attributed to individuals over the age of 85, more than five years older than the average life expectancy in the United States.

There are 74.6 million children 17 and under in the United States. 137 deaths involving COVID-19 are one out of every 544,525. MEP Christine Anderson of Australia referred to the likelihood that the COVID-19 vaccine has caused 17 million deaths worldwide. She was referring to a paper written by Denis Rancourt and others that concluded that the mortality from the COVID-19 vaccine was vastly underestimated.

The paper states: “There can be little doubt that the peaks in excess ACM are caused by the COVID-19 vaccinations, with a mean all-ages fatal toxicity by injection of vDFR = (0.126 ± 0.004) %, or approximately 1 death per 800 injections, which is reasonably expected to be globally representative.”

Andrew Bridgen of the UK Parliament pointed to the excess mortality that coincided with the release of the COVID-19 vaccines. Bridgen explained how the extra deaths from 2020 should’ve brought a death deficit from the previous year. In fact, it should’ve been lower than 2019, the year before the pandemic started.

The CDC is the public health agency expected to weigh the risks and benefits of a particular product before recommending it to the public. The CDC data suggests that there is an extremely low likelihood of death from COVID-19 for minors under 18 but still suggests everyone over six months of age receives the vaccine. The data provided by the CDC clearly states that all deaths listed as COVID-19 are deaths that “involve” COVID-19. The data also says the individuals who die from the virus have an average of four comorbidities.

The CDC claims 200,000 lives were saved by COVID-19 vaccines in the first ten months post-rollout, though this and Rancourt’s study use predictive modeling and cannot quantify with certainty.

The CDC willingly shares one side of the story regarding the perceived safety and efficacy of the vaccine. The CDC’s numbers, however, show that one out of more than half a million children may die from the COVID-19 virus. The data shows they likely have multiple comorbidities. The vaccine does not prevent spread, challenging the idea that children’s vaccination protects the elderly based on trial and real-world data.
