NOTE: I have decided to publish this post and then edit it in real time. This is because some gremlins have got into my laptop and are deleting it as I compose. Your patience is appreciated. Now, on to the post.
Good morning readers. Well it has finally happened. King Herod [aka the Turd] has ordered the slaughter of the innocents in Canada. Here is the headline in the Communist Broadcasting Corporation [aka CBC]. Please read and I will have comments to follow
Health Canada has approved Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine for children aged five to 11, saying it’s more than 90 per cent effective against COVID-19 in younger kids.
“After a thorough and independent scientific review of the evidence, the department has determined that the benefits of this vaccine for children between five and 11 years of age outweigh the risks,” Health Canada wrote in a release Friday morning.
“This is the first COVID-19 vaccine authorized in Canada for use in this age group and marks a major milestone in Canada’s fight against COVID-19.”
Pfizer-BioNTech’s pediatric vaccine is delivered in doses one-third the size of those given to adults and kids 12 and older. Health Canada authorized a two-dose regimen to be administered three weeks apart.
The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI), however, is recommending that the spacing between doses be increased to at least eight weeks, as evidence has been growing that a longer interval generates a more robust immune response. The longer spacing might also help to decrease even further the risk of the rare side effect of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), NACI said.
Health Canada said clinical trials showed the vaccine was 90.7 per cent effective at preventing COVID-19 in children five to 11 years of age and that no serious side effects were identified.
In a statement Friday, Pfizer said the new doses would be shipped “imminently.”
The provinces and territories are responsible for administering the vaccine. Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott said the province’s booking system should be ready as early next week for parents to make appointments for their children.
Everyone benefits: doctor
Dr. Michelle Barton-Forbes is an associate professor at Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry in London Ont., who specializes in pediatric infectious disease. She said this could be a game-changer for Canada’s pandemic response.
“So ultimately, not only will we help to keep kids from acute COVID-19 and its consequences, we will keep kids healthy and we will also keep them happy as they are allowed to do in-class learning and extracurricular activities,” she said.
“This would also help reduce new adult cases in the community resulting from children with school acquisition who go home and infect their parents and grandparents. It could also help to limit COVID-19-related hospitalizations at a time when other viruses are already driving pediatric hospitalizations and ICU admissions.”
Caroline Quach, the former chair of NACI and a pediatric infectious diseases expert at the University of Montreal, said that while it’s normal for parents to question vaccines for children, the trials show the vaccine is effective and less reactogenic — meaning the percentage of children aged five to 11 who received the vaccine and experienced fever, fatigue and myalgia is lower than the percentage of vaccine recipients 16 to 25 years old who experienced similar reactions.
“There were enough children in the Pfizer study to know this with confidence,” she said.
“It is brilliant that we have this vaccine for kids,” said Dr. Allison McGeer, an infectious diseases specialist and microbiologist at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.
Although COVID-19 isn’t usually as serious in children as it is in older adults, she said, it is a “non-trivial disease. It’s something most parents will want their children well protected from.”
“Whatever proportion of kids get vaccinated will create a significant reduction in transmission and just let us all get back to something closer to normal,” McGeer said.
The Canadian Paediatric Society also issued a statement saying it “welcomes” the vaccine’s approval.
As part of its approval, Health Canada is requiring Pfizer-BioNTech to continue providing information to Health Canada on the safety and efficacy of the vaccine in the younger age group.
“This will provide the department with more data from ongoing studies and real-world use to ensure that the benefits of the vaccine continue to outweigh any risks, as well as to detect any potential new safety signals in any age group,” said the department.
“Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada will continue to closely monitor the safety of this vaccine and will take action if any safety concerns are identified.”
Greencrow continues: Rather than say what is going to happen to our children in the next days, weeks and months [indeed for the rest of their lives] let me let a nurse say it:
Folks in a few days the children will start showing up at the hospitals with a myriad of strange and disabling medical symptoms…er…according to FreakedOut, they already have. Here is a comment he put on this blog this morning
“In the States, word has it that one of the largest children’s hospitals was setting up its facilities for a large influx of 5-11 year old children patients after the start of the death jab administration on Nov 5th. As expected, the following weekend (Nov 6th) they started seeing large amounts of children being brought in for heart issues. The staff was also told to keep their mouths shut….yeah….right…. like that’s going to happen. This info comes from a doctor that works at the hospital and is good friends with Jeff Rense. Imagine telling your employees to keep their mouths shut when they see major death/destruction from an experimental medical intervention(kill shot) happening to children!?!?!”
Greencrow concludes: Sadly, the hospital staff WILL for the most part remain silent as child after child is slain. Now that the Killing Field Hospitals are staffed entirely with double jabbed transhumans the dead and dying innocents will affect them no more than “water off a ducks’ back. Same with King Turd Herod. If you look at him closely on those rare occasions when he’s not grinning behind that black cult mask…you will see faint stain/dribbles of adrenochrome around the corners of his mouth.
NOTE: Composing was very difficult this morning and not just because of the tragic subject matter. I am familiar with the CBC’s ability to hack any blog that dares post its lies verbatim. But we soldier on.
