Norwegian Minister of Health and Care Services Ingvild Kjerkol announced that “we will not be recommending that children be vaccinated for covid. The risk for children suffering serious illness is extremely low. The side-effects of the vaccines pose a more serious threat to their health. We are also urging 12-15 year-olds who have already gotten one dose to not get the second dose because of the heightened risk of myocarditis.” She went on to cite numerous recent studies supporting these decisions.
In Sweden, Health Agency official Britta Bjorkholm said “we are not recommending covid vaccination for children ages 5-12. With the knowledge we have today, we know there is a low risk for serious disease for children. We don’t see any clear benefit from vaccinating them.”
A recent study published on January 25, 2022, in the Journal of the American Medical Association it was reported that the risk of myocarditis following mRNA COVID vaccination is around 133 times greater than the background risk in the population.
Dr. Anthony Fauci called the slow down in the vaccination program across the global “hasty and irresponsible. It is heartbreaking for me to see it stopped short. As I have been saying for more than a year, the only way out of this pandemic is for everyone to be vaccinated. I will grant that children seem to face little risk from covid. From a selfish perspective there is little personal benefit to them from taking the jab. On the other hand, getting vaccinated is a sacrifice they can make to help achieve the unity that President Biden wants to achieve.”
