There’s Bad News for Democrats After CDC Panel Votes to Add Covid Shots to Childhood Vaccination Schedule
The Democratic Party may want to call their political operatives at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and tell them to cancel the vote on adding Covid shots to the Childhood Vaccination Schedule.
While the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) unanimously voted to recommend the Covid shots, there is still time to back out.
Because when the Democrats see the polling on this hot-button issue, they’re going to wish that the CDC at least waited until after the election to pull off this fiasco.
Rich Baris, aka ‘the People’s Pundit,’ who is one of the most accurate pollsters out there, actually polled parents with school-aged children in Summer 2021 about schools making the Covid shots mandatory.
We had asked the same Q late in Summer 2021 and got the same result: roughly 60% of parents with school-aged children opposing adding the Covid-19 vaccine to the list of required immunizations to attend school.
Parents will flip the F–k out, with good reason.

“In Fall 2021, the pandemic was still a major concern. Yet, 60% of parents with school-aged children said they opposed adding the Covid-19 vaccination to the list of required immunizations to attend school. Given what we know now, it’s incredible this is still on the agenda,” Baris noted. “We had asked the same Q late in Summer 2021 and got the same result: roughly 60% of parents with school-aged children opposing adding the Covid-19 vaccine to the list of required immunizations to attend school.

The CDC is defying the trends on Covid shots for children, which reflect a major crisis of trust in the agency. As of October 2022, only 31% of children 5-11 are ‘fully vaccinated’ (not including ‘boosters’), while 58% of young persons 12-17 received their first two doses.
Meanwhile, here is the trend in weekly Covid vaccinations being given to children ages 5-11.

That is one explanation for the CDC’s stubborn insistence on recommending the Covid shots despite political resistence: Declining corporate profits.
The trends reflect the declining mortality risk of the Covid variants and subvariants, which was never significantly high for healthy children, the robustness of near-universal natural immunity in the U.S. population, and the emergence of studies showing known adverse events, particularly for young persons and children.
The CDC panel earlier opened up its scheduled vote for public comment and received fierce blowback. Tens of thousands of comments poured into the CDC, the great majority seemingly in direct opposition to the vote to add the Covid vaccines to the childhood schedule.
ACIP’s decision to add the Covid shots is based on hidden data and in defiance of the minute Covid risk factors for healthy children, particularly for healthy children who have natural immunity due to a prior infection. In the United States, there is near-universal antibody seroprevalence due to prior infection. The Covid shots have known adverse events. It is a scientific fact that they do not stop the spread of the virus.
As Dr. Marty Makary, a Johns Hopkins medical professor, recently said on Tucker Carlson’s show about the childhood Covid vax vote: “There has never been a vaccine added to the child immunization schedule without solid clinical evidence that reduces disease significantly in the community. The Covid vaccine in children will be the first, it will be added with no clinical data. And many of us that are saying, ‘Hey, let’s see the data.’ We’re basically told, ‘Stop asking questions’.”
The CDC panel’s vote also comes amidst the Moderna CEO admitting that Covid is now essentially “like the flu.” There are no mandatory annual childhood flu vaccinations and Covid was never more of a risk to healthy young children than the seasonal flu.
The committee’s decision will be highly consequential not only for the children who will be subjected to a long-term regime of mRNA shots for Covid-19, regardless of their risk factors or known adverse effects, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, but it will be a boon to pharmaceutical companies that are seeking liability protection once-and-for-all for the Covid shots.
As pointed out by Robert Kennedy Jr., who runs the Children’s Health Defense, and who has a track record of opposing various vaccines, the real agenda at play here is to ensure Big Pharma can never be sued over the Covid shots.
“So they’re never going to market a vaccine, allow people access to a vaccine, an approved vaccine, without getting liability protection,” Kennedy Jr. said in a clip on Mikhaila Peterson’s podcast. “And now, the Emergency Use Authorization vaccines have liability protection under the PREP Act and the CARES Act. So as long as… you take an emergency use, you can’t sue them. Once they get approved, now you can sue ’em, unless they can get it recommended for children. Because all vaccines that are recommended, officially recommended for children get it, liability protection. Even if an adult gets that vaccine. That’s why they’re going after kids.”
If the Democratic Party though their midterm election prospects were dire after seeing the polls, just wait until the CDC rams through this unpopular vote on Thursday. There will be millions of parents willing to walk on hot coals to vote them out this November.
