CDC Adds COVID-19 Vaccination To Routine Immunization Schedules For Children

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its immunization schedule to include routine COVID-19 vaccination for children, despite multiple studies showing children face a much lower risk from the virus.

According to The Daily Wire, officials at CDC are now recommending that children between six months and 15 months, as well as children who are 18 months and older, receive a two-dose or three-dose main series and booster. The public health agency also recommends three-dose series for moderately or severely immunocompromised children.

Children who are over six months old can receive the Moderna vaccine or the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, while Children who are 12 years and older are eligible to receive the Novavax vaccine.

Reports on PJ Media suggested the CDC’s new schedule will give schools the political cover they need to mandate vaccination for students before they are allowed to attend classes. The long-term effects of COVID-19, as well as for the vaccination for the virus, are still unknown, both in children and adults.

There is also a 1-in-5,000 to a 1-in-6,000 chance of myocarditis in young males between the ages of 16 and 17 who receive the second dose of an mRNA vaccine, according to PJ Media. Studies showed that fully vaccinated adults of any age are at a higher risk of dying from COVID than unvaccinated children.

The Wall Street Journal, in a 2021 report, revealed that children are at very minimal risk of falling seriously ill or dying from COVID-19. Researchers showed in one study that over 99% of the 469,000 children who had the virus during the year survived.
