Anchorage political activist and self-proclaimed citizen journalist Dustin Dardin walked into an Anchorage School District Covid vaccine clinic on Nov. 6 to record a disturbing scene.
The 49 second video posted to Facebook reveals at least one child repeatedly screaming and pleading, “No, I don’t want it.”
A group of Anchorage residents have organized an ongoing protest outside the Anchorage School District Education Center (5530 E. Northern Lights Blvd). The protests take place three days a week from 2-8 p.m. during the vaccine clinic’s operational hours. Protesters are gathering on the sidewalk outside the school district offices.
Attendees are encouraged to bring signs, billboards, projection screens and other signage to shed light on the fact that children are being given experimental COVID shots against their will.
Children as young as five years old are getting Pfizer and Moderna shots, as well as boosters. No scheduling is needed, and parents can simply walk into the clinic to sign their children up.
The FDA green lighted the shots for young children last week. An advisory committee to the agency approved the shots while also expressing concern about unknown side effects and the fact that children are already far less likely than adults to be hospitalized with COVID-19 or suffer any long-term consequences.
The move to approve COVID shots for young children is also debated due to reported instances of myocarditis and pericarditis, which cause inflammation in the lining of the heart. According to the CDC-run Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) this occurs at a rate of 71.5 cases per million in vaccinated males (ages 16 to 17) and 42.6 cases per million in males ages 12 to 15. Data on younger children is still pending.
The FDA advisory committee deliberated over a report which expressed “great uncertainty” regarding the estimated benefits of COVID shots for children, and noted that “vaccine efficacy may change due to new emerging variants of virus.” The report also noted that the “risk assessment does not consider potential long-term adverse effects due to either COVID-19 or myocarditis and does not include an assessment of secondary risks from the shot.
A message from Anchorage School District Superintendent Deena Bishop said the district has launched a “large scale vaccination” program for those who “choose to vaccinate,” and said parental consent is necessary before children are given a dose of the emergency use authorized shots.
“We are excited to add this additional tool to our box to focus on learning during the pandemic,” she said in her message to parents.
The school district also has drive-through clinics scheduled at Service High School (Nov. 13, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.), East High School (Nov. 20, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
