Let's go! Call to action, part 1, FDA

Charles Eisenstein says that it’s time to push. I agree. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to direct one’s energies. I suggest that we put our shoulder to the wheel to push the FDA and CDC to reject COVID-19 vaccines for children.

The FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) will meet on Oct. 26 to discuss emergency use authorization of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. Then the decision goes to the FDA Commissioner for her sign off.

Following the FDA decisions, Pfizer’s application will reviewed by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) at their meeting on Nov. 2-3. And then the ACIP decision is reviewed by the CDC Director (the ever-anxious Rochelle Walensky).

The Biden Administration has already purchased 65 million doses of this vaccine for use in children. If we do nothing, these shots will start being injected into children within days of the ACIP decision.

This is clearly insane. The U.S. has engaged in a Herod-like systematic destruction of children since 1986 but this takes it to the next level. It’s hard to even know where to begin in describing the problems with Pfizer’s application because the entire scheme is based on junk science. But in the interests of moving the conversation forward, here are 3 reasons why the FDA (VRBPAC) and CDC (ACIP) must reject Pfizer’s EUA application to poison children ages 5 to 11:


3 reasons to reject Pfizer’s EUA application for mRNA shots for children ages 5 to 11:

1. Children are at extremely low risk of dying of COVID. How low? In a meta-analysis combining data from 11 countries, Stanford researchers Cathrine Axfors and John Ioannidis found a median infection fatality rate (IFR) of 0.0027% in children ages 0-19. Said differently, children infected with COVID have a 99.9973% survival rate. The IFR in children is so low that Pfizer’s clinical trials involving 2,300 kids did not detect any health benefit at all from their shots.

2. The vaccine does not work very well. A recent study from the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies states it plainly: “Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to level of vaccination across 68 countries and 2,947 counties in the United States.” Researchers found that, “countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people. Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days.” 

3. The Pfizer mRNA vaccine causes catastrophic side effects, particularly heart inflammation (myocarditis and pericarditis) in youth. The CDC’s own analysis of “Myopericarditis following COVID-19 vaccination: Updates from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)” showed astonishing increases particularly in children ages 12-15, 16-17, and 18-24.


The Pfizer vaccine fails any reasonable risk benefit analysis in connection with children.


So what can be done? To paraphrase the great environmentalist Utah Phillips, “The people who are harming us have names and addresses” and it is our democratic right to reach out and urge them to do the right thing. Below is a list of the 21 people who will make this decision at the FDA/VRBPAC (I will send out a second call to action regarding the CDC/ACIP). The first 2 people are key officials at the FDA. The remaining 19 have a vote on Tuesday at the VRBPAC meeting.

So here’s the plan: I need you to call, email, and fax these people to urge them to reject Pfizer’s EUA application for kids ages 5 to 11.

What to say on the phone:
Hi, my name is ____________. I’m calling to urge you to vote No on Pfizer’s EUA application for children ages 5 to 11. Pfizer has not demonstrated any health benefits for children and the potential harms are enormous. Thank you honoring your Hippocratic Oath and the Nuremberg Code by voting No.

What to put in an email? Choose 1:
Copy and paste the 3 reasons from above into your email; or
Come up with your own script (doesn’t have to be perfect, just jot down a few sentence and send it); or
Send Aaron Siri’s latest Substack article ; or
Send Alex Berenson’s latest Substack article.

If you still have a fax machine (or if you know how to send a fax through the internet) faxes are still extremely powerful (it’s a way to get a paper letter there immediately). Copy and paste the 3 reasons above into a Word document (or write your own message), address it to the person you are sending it to, print it, and send.
