A pro-vaccine group of physicians calling itself "America's Frontline Doctors" has filed a request for a temporary restraining order against the emergency use of Covid-19 vaccines in children under age 16.
U.S. public health officials are recommending Covid-19 vaccine as safe and effective for all age groups. They say that vaccine adverse events being examined, so far, are not concerning, and that the benefits of vaccination outweighs the risks.
However, the founder of America's Frontline Doctors, Dr. Simone Gold, says that is not true for all age groups and individuals. She points to statistics showing that the risk of Covid-19 death for kids age 0-17 is 99.997% or "statistically zero." On the other hand, Gold says, "some unknown percentage" of children "will suffer" side effects from Covid-19 vaccines.
Current Moderna and Pfizer studies for their vaccines are scheduled to be completed Oct. 31, 2022 and April 27, 2022 respectively. However, there is discussion of the government approving the vaccines outside emergency use prior to completion of the studies.
Gold says the group of doctors "will not be silent while Americans are used as guinea pigs for a virus with survivability of 99.8% globally and 99.97% under age 70."
The CDC has said getting kids vaccinated against Covid-19 will help keep them from spreading it to adults.
However, studies indicate that transmission from children to adults is "infrequent."
According to a report in the journal Pediatrics: "In France, a 9-year-old boy with respiratory symptoms associated with picornavirus, influenza A, and SARS-CoV-2 coinfection was found to have exposed over 80 classmates at 3 schools; no secondary contacts became infected, despite numerous influenza infections within the schools... In New South Wales, Australia, 9 students and 9 staff infected with SARS-CoV-2 across 15 schools had close contact with a total of 735 students and 128 staff.10 Only 2 secondary infections were identified, none in adult staff; 1 student in primary school was potentially infected by a staff member, and 1 student in high school was potentially infected via exposure to 2 infected schoolmates."
How long each Covid-19 vaccine provides immunity is unknown. The side effects of the vaccines are being gathered and studied, but it's too soon to have the complete picture.
Health officials around the world are examining reports after Covid-19 vaccine of brain blood clots, particularly in females; heart injury, particularly in young boys; death in the fail elderly; and other possible adverse events.
There are varying analyses as to what each vaccine may or may not be responsible for. In the U.S., officials and vaccine makers say many of the side effects and deaths reported are coincidental and not related to the vaccines.
A warning was added to the Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine after reports of blood clots with low platelets in some women who had been vaccinated.

"Based on the law and scientific evidence, the [Emergency Use Authorizations] should never have been granted...should be revoked immediately, the injections are dangerous biological agents that have the potential to cause substantially greater harm than the COVID-19 disease itself..."

America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) today filed a motion in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama requesting a temporary restraining order against the emergency use authorization (EUA) permitting using the COVID-19 vaccines in children under the age of 16, and that no further expansion of the EUAs to children under the age of 16 be granted prior to the resolution of these issues at trial.
The case will challenge the EUAs for the injections on several counts, based on the law and scientific evidence that the EUAs should never have been granted, the EUAs should be revoked immediately, the injections are dangerous biological agents that have the potential to cause substantially greater harm than the COVID-19 disease itself, and that numerous laws have been broken in the process of granting these EUAs and foisting these injections on the American people.
AFLDS Founder Dr. Simone Gold spoke about the reasons for filing the motion: “We doctors are pro-vaccine, but this is not a vaccine,” she said. “This is an experimental biological agent whose harms are well-documented (although suppressed and censored) and growing rapidly, and we will not support using America’s children as guinea pigs.”
She continued: “We insist that the EUA not be relinquished prematurely; certainly not before trials are complete – October 31, 2022 for Moderna and April 27, 2023 for Pfizer. We are shocked at the mere discussion of this, and will not be silent while Americans are used as guinea pigs for a virus with survivability of 99.8% globally and 99.97% under age 70.
“Under age 20 it is 99.997% – ‘statistical zero’.
“There are 104 children age 0-17 who died from COVID-19 and 287 from COVID + Influenza – out of ~72 million. This equals zero risk. And we doctors won’t stand for children being offered something they do not need and of whom some unknown percentage will suffer.”
AFLDS Pediatric Director Dr. Angie Farella explained: “My greatest concerns with the vaccination of children under the age of 18 is the fact that there is no prior study of these individuals before December of 2020.”
She went on to say: “Children were not included in the trials, and the adult trials do not have any long-term safety data currently available.”
AFLDS Legal Director Ali Shultz commented on AFLDS’ filing: “Not many people could have taken this on. Dr. Simone Gold is a doctor, and a lawyer, and a fierce warrior who will stop at nothing to protect humanity.
“She has a certain finesse in developing the right team to see this medical/legal mission through.”

My 19 year old daughter is being told she will have to be vaccinated to return to Marquette University this fall. She had covid, recovered quickly, and has natural immunity( antibodies). We don't want/need a school to mandate these experimental drugs when our daughter is at minimal risk to herself or others. Staff and faculty at Marquette are exempt from these shots. Who do they value??

If possible, find other families going through this as well and band together to fight this. Your kid's life is at risk. Be as fierce as a mother bear defending her cub when it comes to protecting her.
Karen Reeder says
Check to see if they have medical or religious exemptions. Most schools do, but don’t advertise that they allow exemptions. I do not think they can force her to get it. My son is in a similar situation.

Steve Wirtz, there are over 100 universities in the US that are requiring students entering in September to get “THE JAB.” It’s time for parents and students to rise up and we are doing exactly that here in New Jersey. On May 21st, we rallied at Rutgers University Campus in New Brunswick, NJ. They are coming after our children. This is not a vaccine!

We as parents should not give control of our kids to the government.
Marco Moreno says
FYI - In paragraph 3, it states 'the risk of Covid-19 death for kids age 0-17 is 99.997% or "statistically zero"', which conflates both the survivability & death rates.
It should read something like: 'the survivability rate of Covid-19 for kids age 0-17 is 99.997% or a "statistically zero" death rate'.
Thanks for your ongoing reporting on this!
I live in California and the governor has rolled out mandates for kids as soon as Jan 2022. I do not want my kids to get this vaccine and I need help fighting it. Not sure where to turn. My kids most likely won’t get to go to school and this whole thing keeps me up at night. HELP PLEASE.
