The World Health Organization (WHO) published revised advice on June 21, 2021, clarifying which populations should receive COVID-19 vaccines. The WHO's website now states, 'Children should not be vaccinated for the moment.'
Furthermore, the WHO says 'There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults.'
'However, children should continue to have the recommended childhood vaccines.'

This is NOT what WHO said. See post #107 for their actual recommendations.

WHO also thinks Sinovac vaccine is effective. It has efficacy of 51% against symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection. If this wasn't Chinese vaccine, do you think anyone would think 51% is good enough and allowed on WHO approved covid vaccine list? South Korea also put Sinovac on approved covid vaccine list to skip the mandatory 14 day quarantine. President Moon of South Korea is major cuck. He's so scared to piss off China and has no backbone. At least WHO is on China's payroll.

The FDA said in the beginning that they would approve any vaccine better than 50%.

Did you read the actual WHO recommendation?

See the difference bewteen the precisionvaccinations.com article and what WHO said?
WHO SHOULD GET VACCINATED

The COVID-19 vaccines are safe for most people 18 years and older,
including those with pre-existing conditions of any kind, including auto-immune disorders. These conditions include: hypertension, diabetes, asthma, pulmonary, liver and kidney disease, as well as chronic infections that are stable and controlled.

If supplies are limited in your area, discuss your situation with your care provider if you:

  • Have a compromised immune system
  • Are pregnant (if you are already breastfeeding, you should continue after vaccination)
  • Have a history of severe allergies, particularly to a vaccine (or any of the ingredients in the vaccine)
  • Are severely frail


Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults, so unless they are part of a group at higher risk of severe COVID-19, it is less urgent to vaccinate them than older people, those with chronic health conditions and health workers.

More evidence is needed on the use of the different COVID-19 vaccines in children to be able to make general recommendations on vaccinating children against COVID-19.

WHO's Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) has concluded that the Pfizer/BionTech vaccine is suitable for use by people aged 12 years and above. Children aged between 12 and 15 who are at high risk may be offered this vaccine alongside other priority groups for vaccination. Vaccine trials for children are ongoing and WHO will update its recommendations when the evidence or epidemiological situation warrants a change in policy.

It's important for children to continue to have the recommended childhood vaccines.
It's shit headlines like that along with shady editing which have led to morons in the United States slinging bullshit

Slightly less scumbagish article on the same WHO recomendation
The World Health Organization says vaccinating children against COVID-19 is not a high priority, citing limited doses at a global scale.

WSJ piece from yesterday written by - Dr. Ladapo is an associate professor of medicine at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. Dr. Risch is a professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health.

The implication is that the risks of a Covid-19 vaccine may outweigh the benefits for certain low-risk populations, such as children, young adults and people who have recovered from Covid-19. This is especially true in regions with low levels of community spread, since the likelihood of illness depends on exposure risk.

Ladapo?
I knew that name sounded familiar

He sure spends a decent amount of time writing editorials

Mine aren't old enough but as soon as they are they're getting vaccinated. We live in a fairly conservative rural community so I know the schools won't require it and reading through this thread is ample evidence of the idiocy out there which necessitates my kids get the vaccine.

Also, the 13yo neighbor girl caught it from her mom who works in the local hospital. The girl ended up being hospitalized for several weeks. She survived but who knows what lingering/permanent issues she may have. Kids aren't at risk, my ass.

Another anti-science WSJ editorial being bandied about as truth. Guess their editorials about climate change being a myth are true, too, as well as all vaccinations causing autism and Elvis still being alive.

Using a WSJ editorial is like using OAN as a science-fact source.

Probably cause everyone at national review can't even spell science.
