A voting member of a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee admitted Tuesday that whether or not Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine is safe for 5 to 11-year-old children won't be known fully until it begins being administered.

"We're never gonna learn about how safe the vaccine is until we start giving it," said panel member Dr. Eric Rubin during the hearing. "That's just the way it goes."

Good luck!

Bloomberg study: "Vaccinated people are just as likely as unvaccinated people to spread the delta variant to contacts in their household, a yearlong study found"

If vaxxed people can still spread covid: Why are we RNA jabbing 5-11 year olds for a virus no more deadly for them than the flu?

Politifact is a very, very, left leaning rag. It is part of the MSM propaganda arm of this administration. (Removed)

@buklau,

Vaccinated people are less like to get infected in the first place. Vaccination slows infection.

Also we do vaccinate 5 - 11 year olds for the flu also.

@Jake Waters,

All the facts in the article were liked to the original sources from the FDA. You can go read the original material. No opinion. Just fact.

Vaccinated people are no less likely to be carriers than unvaccinated. Vaccination supposedly simply lessens the symptoms and severity, supposedly. So the only benefit to getting vaccinated is to yourself as you can still spread it if vaccinated. If you are not vaccinated it is your own risk. You are no more contagious.

BobB, I am still waiting for the list of companies that make it a requirement of employment to have a flu shot.

Yes they are.

Also, many hospitals and healthcare providers require flu shots and have fired nurses who failed to comply. I know you can use Google, go ahead and give it a whirl. Feel free to report back what you find.

The above statement is true.

Please name companies that requires a flu shot as a condition of employment. Expecially a non medical companies.

I would not want to accuse you of spreading misinformation.

BobB, since you cannot provide backup to your list of companies you are just spreading misinformation. The end.

Parents need to do their due diligence. The government doesn’t have your best interests. For children without serious medical condition the danger for severe covid is so low as to be difficult to quantify. Do your research.
