For a variety of  infectious diseases, children respond differently than adults. In the 5 to 11 age group COVID-19 is generally considered to be a self-limiting infection of the upper airway with only mild symptoms of COVID-19 infection, or no symptoms at all.1

With respect to fatal outcomes, the Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) of COVID-19 in children is an almost infinitesimal 0.001% to 0.002% in those aged 5-9 years old  with a mean increase in the IFR of 0.59% with each five-year increase in age past 10 years and older.2  Overwhelmingly, childhood COVID-19 deaths in the 5 to 11 age group are due to serious pre-existing comorbidities.

The reason for the childhood resistance to severe COVID disease include a low number of COVID virus receptor proteins in the nose and mouth, together with the fact that this age group demonstrates a robust cross-reactive innate immunity to a variety of RNA viral infections.3,4

·  Children are not significant transmitters of the COVID-19 virus to adults or to each other, further adding to the minimal role that children have played in the COVID-19 pandemic.5,6

·  There are currently over 79 international, high-quality, research papers demonstrating that convalescing COVID-19 patients develop a natural, robust, cross-reactive, and long-lasting immunity superior to that of individuals given the Pfizer COVID mRNA “vaccine.” 7

In contrast, there is evidence that convalescent COVID-recovered individuals with new natural immunity may actually be at a higher risk of  adverse vaccine  effects if they are then given the Pfizer mRNA “vaccine” preparation, when compared to naïve individuals not previously infected.8,9,10  The FDA has absolutely no idea if this would also be the case for a vaccinated 5 to 11-year-old child).

It is important to realize that a small number of children in the 5-11 age group with mild or asymptomatic COVID-19 virus exposures may develop a serious generalized inflammatory state a few weeks later. This is termed the Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C). Some scientists are concerned that the Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA “vaccine” may itself trigger MIS-C. 11,12 The current temporary FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock MD, has recently stated that “the FDA is incapable of accurately monitoring the serious adverse side-effects associated with “vaccination” using the experimental Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA preparation.” 13  Therefore, the true incidence of MIS-C generated by the administration of the Pfizer “vaccine” in children will most likely be a gross undercount with a lack of transparency to parents.

In the letter dated 6th July, 2021 to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India sent by Prof. Bhaskaran Raman, of IIT Bombay it is pointed out as under;

 Negligible risk of Covid-19 for children

The risk of Covid-19 in children is much lower than in adults, and is also much lower than other (already small) risks they face in daily life anyway.

1. Raj Bhopal reports, based on a study of 137 million children and adolescents in the US and Europe that Covid-19 in this age group is less than half as risky as seasonal influenza, and over 20 times less risky than death by “unintentional injury” [NCBI, Dec 2020].

2. Among the nearly 2 million children in Sweden (where schools have been open throughout), there was not a single death due to Covid-19. [NEJM, Jan 2021]. Link: Open Schools, Covid-19, and Child and Teacher Morbidity in Sweden | NEJM

3. As per Mumbai’s Covid-19 dashboard data, the Covid-19 IFR (Infection Fatality Rate) for under-19 is miniscule: about 0.003%. In comparison, the infant mortality rate in India is about 3% (1,000 times greater) and the infant mortality rate in Japan is 0.18% (60 times greater). In other words, school-age children are at a negligibly lower risk from Covid-19 compared to other threats. Link: Schools and Covid-19 – Google Slides

Indeed, the indirect proof that children are not affected significantly by Covid-19 is that vast body of literature (a subset is given below) studying whether children spread Covid-19, a question which would not have been so important had children been themselves vulnerable to the disease.”

 Covid-19 vaccines for children: little benefit for huge risk

1. As mentioned earlier, the risk posed by Covid-19 for children is miniscule in absolute terms as well as relative to other risks they face anyway.

2. Writing in the British Medical Journal (May 2021), scientists opine “Covid vaccines for children should not get emergency use authorization”. And, “Unlike for adults, the rarity of severe covid-19 outcomes for children means that trials cannot demonstrate that the balance of the benefits of vaccination against the potential adverse effects are favorable to the children themselves.”

3. Along the same lines, various experts have opined that the risk benefit analysis for school-age children simply does not justify a Covid-19 vaccine for children.
