Why vaccinate our healthy children for this mild and typically non-consequential SARS-CoV-2 virus when they have protective innate immunity towards this illness? Why place our children at such unnecessary risk with a vaccine whereby developers did not carry out the proper safety testing for the right longer-term duration to assess safety signals? This is illogical and irrational, and makes no sense. It is near lunacy to move forward with a vaccine in healthy children that, based on their risk profile, provides only for risk and no benefit. It is also reckless when the vaccine developers and all involved have liability protection and the only ones exposed are the children. If the CDC, NIH, FDA, NIAID (Fauci, Walensky, Francis Collins etc.) and vaccine developers stand by these vaccines for children in terms of safety, then remove the liability protection they all enjoy. Remove it and show us that you believe these vaccines are absolutely safe.
I now present 6 studies and hypothesis that healthy children must be considered ‘already vaccinated’ and immune:
- A Yale University report indicated that “levels of two immune system molecules — interleukin 17A (IL-17A)…and interferon gamma (INF-g) — were strongly linked to the age of the patients. The younger the patient, the higher the levels of IL-17A and INF-g…”
- The virus uses the ACE 2 receptor to enter the host cell; ACE 2 has limited expression (presence) in the nasal epithelium in young children; the biological molecular apparatus is lacking (Patel and Bunyavanich).
- William Briggs reported on the n=542 children who died (0-17 years, under 1 year old n=132, CDC data) since January 2020 with a diagnosis of COVID linked to their death. From January 2020, 1,043 children 0-17 have died of pneumonia. Briggs reports “there is no good vaccine for pneumonia.” Briggs concludes “there exists no justification based on any available evidence for mandatory vaccines for kids.”
- Weisberg and Farber et al. suggest (see Kumar and Faber) that the reason children can more easily neutralize the virus is that their T cells are relatively naïve and untrained, and they can immunologically respond more optimally.
- Research by Loske shows that para “pre-activated (primed) antiviral innate immunity in the upper airways of children work to control early SARS-CoV-2 infection…the airway immune cells in children are primed for virus sensing…a stronger early innate antiviral response to SARS-CoV-2 infection than in adults”.
- Research evidence by Yang indicates that blood examined from children retrieved prior to COVID-19 pandemic have memory B cells that binds to SARS-CoV-2, suggesting a potent role of early childhood exposure to common cold coronaviruses (coronaviruses). See Mateus et al.
In closing, there is very little risk and no data or science to justify any of the COVID-19 injections in children. The molecular and biological evidence presented above strongly suggests that children can be considered already immune and already COVID vaccinated! The focus has to be on testing (sero antibody or T-cell) to establish who is a credible candidate for these injections if only properly ethically informed and consented. Vaccinating already COVID-recovered persons (including children) could be very harmful (here, here, here).
Liability protection for vaccine developers must be removed. Are these vaccines needed in healthy children? No! I am not against vaccines and especially for high-risk children. However, children very rarely become ill from COVID-19, and especially those who are COVD-recovered (immunity having cleared prior infection). It is highly reckless and dangerous to move forward using the current vaccines when we have no proper short, medium, or long-term safety data to review. Consider them already vaccinated! Leave them alone!
Dr. Paul E. Alexander, PhD is former Assistant Professor at Canada’s McMaster University in evidence-based medicine. Dr. Alexander served as COVID Pandemic advisor to WHO-PAHO (2020), and as senior advisor to COVID Pandemic policy for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). He is an academic scientist and consultant with expertise in clinical epidemiology, evidence-based medicine and research methodology. Dr. Alexander was appointed in 2008 at WHO as a regional specialist/ epidemiologist in Europe’s Regional office in Denmark (working with Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and Poland). He additionally worked for the government of Canada as an epidemiologist for 12 years, appointed as the Canadian in-field epidemiologist (2002-2004) as part of an international CIDA-funded project on tuberculosis (TB) / HIV co-infection and MDR-TB control executed by Health Canada (involving India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Afghanistan).
Dr. Alexander was employed from 2017 to 2019 at the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) as the evidence synthesis meta-analysis systematic review guideline development lead/trainer. He worked with Dr. Donald Henderson, who headed eradication of smallpox and was awarded The Governor General Medal of Canada for academics.
Dr. Alexander completed graduate studies at University of Oxford England, University of Toronto Canada, McMaster University Canada, and York University Canada. His doctoral studies and post doc were completed under supervision of Dr. Gordon Guyatt, co-founder with Dr. Dave Sackett of the field of evidence-based medicine (EBM).’ He completed a certificate program at Johns Hopkins Baltimore, USA in bioterrorism, with a focus on the medical and public health aspects in the event of a deployment of a biological weapon (weaponized pathogen such as smallpox, plague, botulism, tularemia etc.) on a city such as Baltimore.
