CDC Makes COVID-19 Vaccinations Standard For Children

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) amended its standard vaccination schedule for children and adults to now include COVID-19 shots.

This is despite the widespread pushback from parents of young children who emphatically refused to have their little ones jabbed. COVID vaccination rates for the smallest children are far behind those of adults and older kids.

The new recommendation is that children between six months and 15 months be administered a two-dose or three-dose primary series and booster. The agency recommends that from 18 months to adulthood, minors should receive the primary series and boosters.

According to the CDC, children older than six months may receive the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine. Children over 12 years old may also receive the Novavax vaccine.

The three dose series is recommended for children who are “moderately or severely immunocompromised.”

There are many who are hesitant about getting small children vaccinated against COVID-19. That age group is mostly unaffected by the coronavirus and for obvious reasons the long-term effects of the vaccines are still unknown.

The vaccine doses, according to the CDC, are not covered under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. This is considered to be an alternative to the legal system for settling claims of harm caused by vaccines.

As for adults, new vaccination schedules advise two-dose or three-dose primary series and boosters. The jabs are considered routine beginning this year.

The routine vaccination schedule changes coincide with plans announced by pharmaceutical companies to dramatically raise the prices of their doses. The federal government previously purchased 105 million Pfizer doses at approximately $30 per dose.

The new charge, according to Pfizer President Angela Lukin, will be between $110 and $130 per dose. That cost for most Americans who have private or government insurance will not be absorbed by the recipient.

Some advocates have expressed outrage that Pfizer and Moderna have charged nations up to an estimated $41 billion over the estimated costs of production for the vaccines. The doses reportedly may be produced for as little as $1.20 each.

It is hardly shocking that pharmaceutical giants are lining up to cash in as the pandemic fades. Adding the doses to the recommended schedules will only apply more pressure on everyone — including the smallest children — to accept the jabs.
