The kids’ covid vaccine has been a lot in the news these days. Earlier today, we revealed that there have been all kinds of concerns regarding the covid vaccines’ effects on kids’ health. Now, it’s been revealed that there’s a new survey that has been released by the Kaiser Family Foundation last week found that 66% of parents of 5- to 11-year-olds worried that vaccines might negatively impact children’s fertility later on.
Doctors and public health officials are assuring parents this is not a concern. Check out all the details about this in our previous article. 
The online publication Barrons.com notes that Moderna said Sunday that regulatory approval for its Covid-19 vaccine for use in adolescents age 12 to 17 could be delayed until January after the Food and Drug Administration said that they require more time to evaluate the data. Moderna stock was falling in premarket trading Monday.

“The Cambridge, Mass.-based drugmaker also said it would delay filing a request for emergency authorization of the vaccine at a half dose for children aged 6 to 11 while the FDA completes its review for adolescents,” the same online publication says.

Digital green pass in the news

The digital covid green pass has been triggering massive backlash worldwide, and it seems that a new fight against making it mandatory is in the European Parliament.

A few days ago, some few members of the European Parliament (Cristian Terheş (ECR, RO), Ivan Vilibor Sinčić (NI, HR), Francesca Donato (Italy, NI), Christine Anderson (Germany, ID)) had a significant conference explaining the reasons for which the green pass should not become mandatory in order to be able to work or enter various essential locations.

 


The MEPs are also comparing the mandatory covid green pass with totalitarian China and its social credit system. 

Stay tuned for more news and make sure to stay safe.
