Dr. Ben Carson Says ‘Experimental’ Coronavirus Vaccine For Children Is Not Really Needed
Dr. Ben Carson conducted an interview recently where he stated that the “experimental” coronavirus vaccine is not needed for kids between the ages of five and eleven because much of the scientific data has made it clear there is “zero risk” that they might die from the illness.
”When you follow the science, and the science tells us that mortality rate from COVID for children. 0.25, about the same as it is for seasonal flu. We don’t go through all of these measures every year for seasonal flu,” Carson stated during his conversation Wednesday on ”The Chris Salcedo Show.” ”This [vaccine] is still experimental. We have no idea what the long-term consequences are.”
Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who served as housing and urban development secretary under former President Donald Trump, said that with the best medical system in the world here in the United States, parents should seek out the recommendation of their healthcare provider before getting their children vaccinated.
”This is where people come from all over the world when they want good medical care,” the former neurosurgeon said. ”So, if that is the case, why wouldn’t we simply encourage people to seek the advice of their caregiver and arm themselves with appropriate information rather than having a bunch of bureaucrats, even if some of them have M.D. behind their name, trying to make decisions for everyone.”
Carson then went on to say that the kids who have passed away from the illness did so because of comorbidities.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authorized the emergency use of the two-dose Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 earlier this year but have not yet given approval to the two-dose Moderna, or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines for use with that age group.
”Widespread vaccination for COVID-19 is a critical tool to best protect everyone, especially those at highest risk, from severe illness and death,” the CDC went on to say on its website. ”People who are fully vaccinated can safely resume many activities that they did prior to the pandemic. Children ages 5 years and older are able to get an age-appropriate dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.”
Carson is right. If medical professionals were being honest right now, they know this is the case. Why are they not acknowledging?
They must be good lapdogs for the radical leftists in power.
