To the Editor:
“Practice two things in your dealings with disease: either help or do not harm the patient”. (Epidemics Book 1, of the Hippocratic school.)
There have been 756,000 COVID-19 deaths since Jan. 6, 2020. Kids from 5 to 14 accounted for 191 of them.
Pneumonia killed 679,000 people during the same period with 317 of these kids dying. The CDC limits the use of the PVC-3 pneumonia vaccine for these kids to 14 specific, unique health conditions based on 45 years of experience. Yet, they are mass vaccinating everyone in this age group for COVID-19 with zero experience. The harm to these kids may be a massive tragedy because the CDC applied a political atom bomb to a 0.000252 percent threat that merited no response. What’s next? Vaccinating all our babies?
