(The Defender) Infants and children 6 months through age 4 who received the three-dose primary series of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine are now eligible for a fourth dose — Pfizer’s bivalent booster shot.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Tuesday amended the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 booster vaccine for the younger age group, but only for those children who received the three-dose series before the FDA authorized Pfizer’s bivalent Omicron booster as the third shot in the primary series.
Under the amended authorization, children can receive their fourth shot two months after completing the three-dose primary series.
Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said the authorization gave parents the opportunity to “update their children’s protection.”
But critics including Peter McCullough, M.D., MPH, an internist and cardiologist, said the shots pose long-term safety concerns for children.
“I am greatly concerned about the long-term safety of accumulating novel mRNA and Wuhan spike protein in previously healthy children,” McCullough told The Defender. “Continued shots are not natural and cannot make their bodies healthier.”
Mary Holland, president and general counsel of Children’s Health Defense said:
“If one ever needed proof of which side the FDA is on, Pharma’s or the people’s, one need look no further than its authorization of a fourth COVID shot for children under 5.
“With knowledge that these shots don’t work and that they can cause severe harm, including death, this decision is simply obscene.”
Dr. Michelle Perro, a pediatrician with more than 40 years of experience in acute and integrative medicine, told The Defender, “Medical logic and reason have taken a back seat to an unfathomable policy based on fiction.”
“With the steady stream of information now available on VAERS [Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System] and other global vaccine reporting systems, the harm caused to children from this unnecessary ‘vaccine’ is nothing short of pediacide.”
Perro, who said she will deliver a conference lecture in April on how to help children who have been harmed by the COVID-19 vaccines, said:
“The time is now for parents to do what’s best for their children and refuse this experimental technology.”
Muriel Blaive, Ph.D., tweeted:
Children under 5 don’t need this vaccine, let alone four doses of it. In the age of universal education and global information you can still manipulate a country with ease. Critical mind and access to competing information don’t seem to change a thing. 1/https://t.co/D9HfsXzRFF

Breaking: This may be a new low, even for FDA. It just authorized new bivalent C19-V for babies/toddlers and only trial of this vaccine for those ages had “24 participants 6 months through 23 months” and “36 participants 2 years through 4 years of age.” https://t.co/FwbAd136rv
