Feds Pass Controversial Child Vaccine Vote
(ConservativeInsider.org) – Vaccines have prevented many people from getting serious diseases over the years. But as new viruses pop up, the recommended list of vaccines keeps growing longer, causing some parents to grow concerned about the number of injections their children are supposed to receive. Now, the feds have agreed to add yet another jab to the recommended immunization schedule for kids: the COVID-19 inoculation.
The CDC Adds COVID-19 Vaccine to Free Immunization Program
On Wednesday, October 19, a CDC advisory committee voted 15-0 to add the COVID-19 vaccine to their Vaccines for Kids program, which provides free vaccinations to kids on Medicaid, or who are uninsured or underinsured.
The following day, the CDC voted to add the COVID-19 vaccine to the 2023 Child and Adolescent Immunization Schedule. The new government suggestion is for kids to receive a two or three-dose series and booster to protect against the virus starting at six months of age. It allows doctors to use the Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax vaccine for this series.

While many consider the CDC’s schedule the national standard, it is still up to state and local schools to decide which vaccines are mandatory for attendance. For example, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt (R) released a statement the same day emphasizing his state “will never force kids to get a COVID vaccine to go to school.” This aligns with a 2021 bill he signed prohibiting any state school from making such a rule.
A Growing List of Vaccines, Yet No Liability for Manufacturers
In 2020, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar engaged the PREP Act, which stands for the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act. With it, companies making medical supplies, including the coronavirus vaccines, can receive lasting protection from lawsuits under the government’s protection. This currently lasts until 2024.
So, while the CDC adds these vaccines to the children’s schedule, no one who receives them is able to hold the agency responsible for any injuries or even death they may cause. As these vaccines were developed at a record pace with no long-term studies shown, many are wary about what they could do to the next generation.
Is a COVID Vaccine Worth It for Children?
When adding a vaccine to a schedule, it is important to weigh the risk of getting the inoculation with the risk and severity of getting the disease. In the case of COVID-19, children are just as likely to contract the virus, but they are much less likely to get severely ill and require hospitalization. According to the Mayo Clinic, up to 50% of people under 18 may experience no symptoms of a COVID infection.
So, the CDC now recommends millions of small Americans receive multiple injections to keep them safe from a virus they may not even ever know they have. Why is the CDC actually adding these vaccines to the list for children? If it is not to protect the children, could it be to protect the vaccine manufacturers from lawsuits?
