Pfizer-BioNTech announced Friday its two-shot vaccine didn’t perform adequately in children ages 2 to 5 years old, and it will test a three-dose series for official authorization.
The pharmaceutical companies said they will expand ongoing clinical trials of their COVID-19 vaccine in children to include a third dose for participants as young as 6 months old, NPR reported.
Healthy children have, statistically, virtually no chance of death or hospitalization from a COVID-19 infection, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control.
The decision, the companies said, was made “following a routine review by the external independent Data Monitoring Committee,” which acts as a watchdog over the clinical trials.
They insisted, however, that no “safety concerns” were identified, and the 3 microgram doses “demonstrated a favorable safety profile in children 6 months to under 5 years of age.”
The FDA has authorized the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine only for emergency use in children aged 5 and older. Adults get 30 micrograms of the Pfizer shot per dose, and children ages 5 to 11 get 10 micrograms. In November, the FDA authorized a third booster dose for all U.S. adults.
Last week, the inventor of the mRNA technology behind the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, Dr. Robert W. Malone, issued a video statement explaining why more than 15,000 physicians and medical scientists around the world have signed a declaration that healthy children should not be vaccinated for COVID-19.
He warned parents that the decision to inject their children is “irreversible,” and they need to be aware of “the scientific facts about this genetic vaccine, which is based on the mRNA vaccine technology I created.”
Malone argued the Pfizer and Modern mRNA vaccines inject a viral gene that forces the body to make toxic spike proteins that can cause permanent damage in children’s critical organs.
Secondly, he said, the novel vaccine technology has not been adequately tested, with the vaccines introduced in one-fifth the minimum time typically given for clinical trials. Finally, he contended that the reason public health officials are “giving you to vaccinate your child is a lie.”
“Your children represent no danger to their parents or grandparents, he said. “Ir’s actually the opposite. Their immunity, after getting COVID, is critical to save your family if not the world from this disease.”
In summary, Malone said there is “no benefit for your children or your family to be vaccinating your children against the small risks of the virus, given the known health risks of the vaccine that as a parent, you and your children may have to live with for the rest of their lives.”
“The risk-benefit analysis isn’t even close,” he said.
“As a parent and grandparent, my recommendation to you is to resist and fight to protect your children.”

Pfizer also said it was developing a vaccine to target the omicron variant and hopes to start clinical trials in January. However, the variants have been shown to develop and spread much faster than the time it takes to bring a vaccine to market. The COVID-19 vaccines waned in effectiveness after three months, according to studies, and failed to stop the delta-variant wave, which already has been overtaken by omicron in South Africa and some other countries.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
