CDC Now Targeting 20 Million U.S. Infants & Young Kids for COVID Jab

Following an emergency meeting on Saturday, June 18, 2022, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky supported the FDA’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) unanimous recommendation that infants and children as young as six months through five years should be vaccinated against COVID-19. The endorsement ignores many important questions and opens the door for nearly 20 million additional jabs into the arms of America’s children. 

Following Walensky’s nod of approval, a CDC Media Statement released on Saturday reports that “COVID-19 vaccines have undergone—and will continue to undergo—the most intensive safety monitoring in the U.S. history.” The statement encourages parents and caregivers to “play an active role” in monitoring the safety of the jabs by signing up for v-safe, where they can “easily share with the CDC how a child feels after getting a COVID-19 vaccine.” With the emergency use authorization now in place for babies and young children, Walensky added:

“Together, with science leading the charge, we have taken another important step forward in our nation’s fight against COVID-19. We know millions of parents and caregivers are eager to get their young children vaccinated, and with today’s decision, they can. I encourage parents and caregivers with questions to talk to their doctor, nurse, or local pharmacist to learn more about the benefits of vaccinations and the importance of protecting their children by getting them vaccinated.” < continue reading & to watch video
