As you probably know by now, kids from age 5 to 11 can now be vaccinated against the covid 19 terrible disease.
Not too long ago,m we revealed that Pfizer has submitted data from clinical trials involving lower doses of its Covid-19 vaccine and children aged 5 to 11.
Sources mentioned that over 28 million children in the U.S would fit in the 5 to 11 years old category and could benefit from the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.
Side effects of vaccines for kids
The same official notes revealed that the pharmaceutical company announced the Pfizer serum was efficient and well-tolerated for more than 2,000 children who participated in clinical trials.
On the other hand, there are still side effects that parents need to know about. The most common side effects are pain at the injection site, headaches, fever, and fatigue, while an extremely rare side effect is heart inflammation.
Pfizer scandal involving a $2 million funding for a doctor to promote child vaccination
TNCNews just noted that a few largest media companies in Canada failed to reveal almost $2 million worth of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals funding that a leading pediatrics professor from Alberta received while he was pushing for vaccination of kids aged 5 to 11 years old.
Dr. Jim Kellner who is a pediatrician and University of Calgary professor, “has been cited as an authority in dozens of articles published by CTV News, CBC, Global News, the Toronto Star, and the Globe and Mail on vaccinating children and other pandemic related issues.”
The same online publication mentioned above notes the fact that since 2014, Kellner’s research has received $1,940,443 from Pfizer Pharmaceuticals for various vaccine studies. It’s also worth noting the fact that the most recent grant of $787,004 is allocated until the year 2022.
The same online publication we mentioned above also notes that there’s an article published by CBC News this Wednesday titled “Wondering about vaccinating younger kids against COVID-19? Alberta experts weigh in.”
This piece cites Kellner on the topic of giving the Pfizer vaccine to kids without referencing his funding:
“From my perspective the risk benefit analysis is showing there’s a definite benefit to providing the vaccine to prevent infection and prevent serious outcomes of COVID-19.”
