British Medical Journal Opinion says "children should not get the Covid-19 vaccine"

Updated: Jun 3

"Emergency use authorization for mass child vaccination presents a different balance of risks and benefits than it did for adults, say Wesley Pegden, Vinay Prasad, and Stefan Baral" Is it ethically right to inject children with an experimental mRNA technology which is in phase III trials and still only has temporary emergency use authorisation by the WHO, governments and various medical regulators around the world? Emergency use authorization in the US requires that an intervention address a serious or life threatening condition, and for known and potential benefits of the intervention to be balanced against the known and potential harms.

Given that we still do not know the long-term side effects of the mRNA jabs and the fact that data around the world shows children are at extremely low risk of suffering badly, or worse – dying – of Covid-19, is it right and appropriate for Medical Regulators and Governments to hastily rush through recommendations to start injecting young children? Where is the safety trial data for children’s trials? Is it complete and have enough children been involved in the trial for a long enough period of time to ensure the results are meaningful?
