Parents are being told that it is safe for their child to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and other childhood vaccines concomitantly, yet no such safety data on the simultaneous administration of COVID-19 vaccines and other vaccines are available for them to read.
The Epoch Times reached out to the CDC four different times inquiring which safety studies the agency based its co-administration recommendation on but have yet to receive a response.
A spokesperson for the Food and Drug Administration told The Epoch Times in an email that “the facts sheets for each authorized vaccine state there is no information on the co-administration of the specific COVID-19 vaccine with other vaccines” but did not respond to follow-up questions.
According to the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), such safety information on co-administration of COVID-19 vaccines with other vaccines is not available but that should not be a concern.
The organization also admits that it does not know what type of adverse reactions will occur with the co-administration of these vaccines at the same time.
“It is unknown whether reactogenicity of COVID-19 vaccine is increased with coadministration, including with other vaccines known to be more reactogenic, such as adjuvanted vaccines or live vaccines,” the AAP chapter said.
“It’s something the CDC has been recommending for years, lumping vaccines together and yet never studying their side effect profile or their benefits in concert,” Johnston told The Epoch Times.
Johnston says that there has never been a concerted effort to put together a reference book that lists the interactions between the various vaccines being co-administered like it is done for all FDA-approved drugs in the Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR).
The PDR, widely used among doctors, tells “you the interactions for almost every other medicines out there,” Johnston says. It provides guidance on how to safely and effectively use every prescription drug in the United States, and yet, “no such thing has been done for vaccines.”
Should Parents Space Out Vaccines?
Parents concerned about their child receiving several shots during a doctor’s visit have the option to space out the vaccines. Johnston says parents should consider doing so and be aware that “not all vaccines have the same benefit or risk.”
“I am for patient choice. I think patients, parents should look at the risk and the benefits of each vaccine, look at the disease and its prevalence and its treatability, and space out those vaccines that they consent to, so as to give the immune system the maximum chance to recover from that fake war,” Johnston said.
“In vaccine speak, you’re trying to induce immunity without the actual infection,” he added. “You’re creating a fake war to trick the immune system into producing immunity, so space out those wars as much as possible and you’re going to have less untoward side effects in my opinion.”
COVID-19 Vaccine and ChildrenJohnston, similar to several other doctors and scientists like Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough, says that children should not be given the COVID-19 vaccine, claiming that “the risk of this vaccine is far greater in a healthy population.”
“COVID is a dangerous pathogen, but its danger is largely concentrated around patients that are at high risk with multiple comorbidities greater than 65 years of age. But for an 18-year-old to have a vaccine that has a far greater side effect profile than does COVID is inhumane,” Johnston said.
“Now, the argument is well, let's give all the 18-year-olds and other kids these shots so that their grandmas won't get COVID from them. … But the problem is we're not having informed consent because patients are not being told this isn't in your 18-year-olds' best interests. When the science shows they're far more likely to suffer a heart side effect like myocarditis, or palsy, which is nerve damage from the vaccine than they are to have any benefit,” he added.
“And so the vaccine should be curtailed to those that are at greatest risk for negative consequence.”
“Many of the patients I’m taking care of with acute COVID are vaccinated,” Johnston said, adding that the vaccinated doctors at the medical facility where he works part-time were also “coming down with COVID-19.” As a result, the facility “backed off their requirement” to have all of their staff vaccinated.
“And you consider how ineffective it is in preventing against COVID, in my opinion, it should be pulled from the market.”
Of the 4,249 VAERS reports, 100 (2.4 percent) were for serious events that occurred in 61 males with a median age of 9 years. Of the serious events, 15 were reports of myocarditis, or heart inflammation, 12 of seizure, and two deaths in 5 and 6 years old girls that were still under review. “None of the data suggested a causal association between death and vaccination,” the CDC wrote.
Only the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is authorized for children aged 5 to 17 in the United States.
