The White House has enough “kid-sized needles” and Pfizer jabs to “hit the ground running” to vaccinate infants and toddlers under 5 as soon as there is authorization from VRBPAC.
VRBPAC does not have all the safety data it needs, and it is already known a 2-dose regimen is NOT effective in this age group, by Pfizer’s own report!
You can help stop this. You must tell our government what you want for your children. You can make a public comment (by name or anonymously) that will go on record for the FDA to consider as it decides on Emergency Use Authorization for covid vaccines for children ages 6 months – 4 years.
There is an FDA meeting on February 15, 2022 to discuss expanding the Pfizer EUA to children as young as 6 months. The meeting is being held by the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC), a panel of doctors and scientists who advise the FDA on whether to approve or authorize biologics for use in American populations.
If the FDA expands the Pfizer EUA to children as young as 6 months, systems are already in place to distribute the jab to our most vulnerable. The ultimate goal for the White House is to expand the vaccine authorization to all children and get the jab on the ACIP Vaccine Schedule.
Comments received on or before February 10 will be received by the VRBAC panel. Comments received by February 14 will be read by the FDA.
The FDA must take into consideration public comment as well as the advice of VRBPAC when making decisions about novel biologics that enter the US market. Commenting in the Federal Register (the publication for all federal agency actions) is a powerful, simple, and non-confrontational way to make your voice heard.
