Children’s COVID-19 Vaccines Logged 15 Times More Reactions Versus Routine Pediatric Vaccine
The FDA began recommending COVID-19 vaccines to children in June of this year. Over the course of the summer, nearly a million children in America were vaccinated. Throughout this time, the CDC closely monitored the data. Their recent findings suggest that about half of babies and toddlers who get Moderna or Pfizer COVID vaccines experience “systemic reactions.” These are reactions outside the vaccination area, and they include things like fever, irritability, crying, and sleepiness. There were also instances of a “health impact,” meaning the children got sick to the point where they couldn’t attend daycare and their parents sought medical help. That ranged between 7 to 16 percent depending on the vaccine, the dose, and the age group.
Of course, these reactions happen with regular pediatric vaccines too, like the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. Last Friday, Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, the head of the CDC’s vaccine safety team, said that all these reactions to COVID vaccines in children have no “statistical signals,” which basically means there’s no cause for concern. But if you really compare a normal pediatric vaccine to a COVID one, the COVID vaccines seem to cause 15 times more reactions than a routine pediatric immunization. And some doctors say that could be a signal of more serious reactions down the line.
