Alaska’s government vaccine enthusiasts are pulling out all stops to pressure parents into letting them jab children with the experimental Pfizer COVID shot.
On May 10, the FDA expanded emergency use authorization of the Pfizer shot for children ages 12 and up. Two days later Alaska’s chief medical officer, Dr. Anne Zink, issued a glowing endorsement of the decision saying, “We’ve been waiting for this day and are excited to begin protecting younger Alaskans against COVID-19.”
Now, she must convince parents of the urgent need to subject their children to this novel injection.
Her first attempt was to claim that the shot will “keep our children from missing out on school, activities, camps and spending time with friends and family, which is so important for their growth and socialization.”
But why would children miss out on any of these activities if they remained unvaccinated?
“We know our kids are overwhelmingly immune from death, let alone serious side effects”
Schools are open, summer camps are booked, youth sports are underway, and the state just recently lifted its emergency declaration. Even, Anchorage, a city that has imposed the most stringent COVID mandates on its citizens, has rescinded nearly every restriction on area residents, including school children.
Add to this the fact that the CDC has said for months now that, quote: “Most children with COVID-19 have mild symptoms or have no symptoms at all.” In fact, the CDC reports that 99.997% of youth – 19 and under – survive COVID … 99.997% and that’s without any experimental shots. Even among youth – ages 0 to 17 – who get COVID and are so sick that they MUST be hospitalized, the CDC says 99.3% of these extreme cases do not result in death.
ALASKA WATCHMAN DIRECT TO YOUR INBOX
So why are parents being pressured with a barrage of state-produced videos, flyers, posters and propaganda campaigns to subject their children to an experimental COVID shot when we know our kids are overwhelmingly immune from death, let alone serious side effects? Public health officials like Dr. Zink and others, know that they need to manufacture compelling arguments to convince parents. The main tactic being used across the nation is to talk about our responsibility to help achieve herd immunity.
But even this is a moving target.
COVID guru Dr. Anthony Fauci first told us that 60% of the population needed to be vaxed to reach herd immunity. Then it was bumped up to 70%. And last month he told the New York Times that 90% would do the trick.
“COVID does not present an emergency situation for our children.”
The state of Alaska’s COVID website currently boasts that nearly 300,000 Alaskans have at least one dose of a COVID shot. Another 264,000 are deemed “fully vaccinated.” That’s 36% of the total state population – all ages. Add to this the fact more than 66,000 Alaskans are reported as having had COVID – and this number, according to state epidemiologist Joe McLaughlin is probably 5 to 10 times higher. So, in reality at least 50% of Alaskans, and probably many more than that, have either contracted COVID or been vaccinated. And all of this for a virus that has killed a grand total of 0.04% of Alaska’s population.
Look, we currently have 39 COVID positive Alaskans in the hospital – that’s 0.005% of the population. And that’s without subjecting our children to a shot that could only have been authorized under extraordinary emergency situations – like chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats. In such dire instances federal law allows the FDA to authorize, “unapproved medical products or unapproved uses of medical products” in order to prevent serious or life-threatening conditions.
COVID does not present such a situation for our children. If it did, we would not have let them return to schools or daycare centers, play sports or sign up for summer camps – all of which have happened.
If you want to subject your child to a COVID shot, that’s your parental prerogative, but don’t be fooled into thinking that COVID is an emergency threat to our kids. Objectively, it is not.
