WHO: Children shouldn’t be vaccinated for COVID-19 right now​

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The World Health Organization is recommending that parents hold off on vaccinating their children for COVID-19, according to its June guidance.
The WHO states that since they tend to experience mild disease symptoms compared to adults, they aren’t in urgent need for vaccinations unless they have a pre-existing condition. Instead, vaccines should be prioritized to those with conditions, health care workers, and older individuals.

https://www.wfla.com/community/heal...houldnt-be-vaccinated-for-covid-19-right-now/

The inventor of the test used for covid-19 claimed the test was NOT suited to detect viral diseases, while openly calling Fauci a fraud and liar. The person who came up with the mRNA therapy theory has expressed real concerns of the safety of the vaccine due to the vaccines bizarrely collecting in the ovaries and in bone marrow, while attacking the studies done by the drug companies. Fauci has openly admitted he has been lying to manipulate people.

Bad luck that the virus seems to mostly want to kill non-oriental people. Lucky break for China, huh?

Except the WHO isn't saying they shouldn't be vaccinated right now:

WHO COVID 19 Vaccines Advice said:
Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults, so unless they are part of a group at higher risk of severe COVID-19, it is less urgent to vaccinate them than older people, those with chronic health conditions and health workers.

That makes sense in places where there's a vaccine shortage, but that's not the case in most industrialized nations.

Yeah but ... people have been screaming that we have to be vaccinated to protect OTHERS. Maybe that was just BS propaganda?? If vaccination is needed to protect the vulnarable, and to prevent new strains, then it would be urgent to vaccinate children. Except apparently it isn't urgent.

How to spot propaganda -- logical contradictions, things not adding up.

No.

Vaccinate the vulnerable first.

Thank you for providing so many examples.

*sigh* we just had to go through this whole nonsense with @VySky and now it’s come up again? Can you guys go back to whatever common Facebook group is feeding you this drivel and get your misinformation and stale information fixed?

So are you disputing that yesterday morning the WHO page guidance was not to vaccinate kids as there was no direct benefit? And that the page was refreshed ~12 noon?

No, since the vaccines also reduce transmission. The more vaccinated people, the less transmission an impact to those who haven't been inoculated yet.

If vaccination is needed to protect the vulnarable, and to prevent new strains, then it would be urgent to vaccinate children. Except apparently it isn't urgent.

Incorrect, they said it is less urgent when compared to vulnerable groups. From a mortality perspective children are less at risk, so if you have to create a tier based on that metric, then they are lower on the urgency scale. That, however, doesn't mean or imply that they should not be vaccinated or that it isn't urgent.

Or maybe they just realized that the statement was poorly worded, and they fixed it.

The only thing I am disputing is your competency at knowing how to properly use websites, since it took me less than 30 seconds to find a CDC page that conclusively invalidated all of your claims… a search you could have done yourself. By doing so, you would have arrived at a very different conclusion and posted a different thread. Unfortunately since the only links you know how to find and click on are those your mainstream conservative media friends send you, this basic skill (typically found in those ages 14 and up) you unfortunately are lacking at present.

I do hope you develop better website search skills since this will serve you well through your 20s and 30s, particularly in the modern job market.

So the WHO website I linked (the WHO site) saying vaccines for kids provides no benefit you are disputing? So not even the WHO website is good enough?

Now you’re getting it. Web sites are updated by interns and often have this thing called a “stale page” which means a page that hasn’t been updated recently. You’re probably not aware of this but as time passes, sometimes things change. If a webpage is not updated, the information contained within it will become out of date. Therefore an intelligent person will do some research, find the latest and least stale pages and draw information from that. I am hopeful that you will someday understand all of the above.

Your headline does not match the article. The article does NOT say that children shouldn't be vaccinated. It says:

"...Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults, so unless they are part of a group at higher risk of severe COVID-19, it is less urgent to vaccinate them than older people, those with chronic health conditions and health workers.

More evidence is needed on the use of the different COVID-19 vaccines in children to be able to make general recommendations on vaccinating children against COVID-19...."


You do realize that your post is ostensibly a lie as you are intentionally mis-characterizing what the WHO said.

BTW.... since one of the pretenses of your post is that we should listen to the WHO, have you? Are you vaccinated?

The issue is the complete communications breakdown of the Biden Covid team. This is just another example of why smart Americans don’t trust a word they say. Thx but no thx we’ll pass on your vaccine
