CDC Advisory Panel Recommends Adding COVID Shots to Child Vaccination Schedule Without FDA License for Use in Children Under 12

child on a swing

On Oct. 20, 2022, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted 15-0 to add the mRNA COVID-19 shots to the list of vaccines recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for children as young as six months old, even though no COVID vaccine has been officially licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use by children under age 12. Currently, the Pfizer/BioNTech messenger RNA (mRNA) Comirnaty biologic and Moderna/NIAID’s mRNA Spikevax biologic are being distributed under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for children over age 12 years old (Pfizer) and for individuals over age 18 (Moderna). 1 2 3 4 5

The CDC usually follows the counsel of its vaccine advisory panel, whose members are appointed by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The CDC staff is expected to officially sign off on the ACIP recommendation and add the shots to the new childhood vaccination schedule published in February 2023.6

The COVID vaccine is the first vaccine that has been widely distributed in the U.S. under an EUA, rather than meeting evidence criteria that legally allows the FDA to grant full licensure. COVID vaccine is also the first EUA-approved vaccine to be added to the CDC’s recommended child vaccine schedule for children as young as six months old, even though it has not been licensed for children under age 12. On the FDA website, federal health officials state:

Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.7

States Mandate Vaccines, Not the CDC

Neither the recommendation by the ACIP nor whatever decision the CDC ultimately takes regarding adding COVID vaccine to the recommended childhood vaccine schedule would require that students receive COVID shots before enrolling in school. The CDC does not have the legal authority to mandate vaccines nationally and confirms on its website that it “only makes recommendations for use of vaccines, while school-entry vaccination requirements are determined by state or local jurisdictions.” In the U.S., most public health laws, including vaccine laws, are enacted by state legislatures or, in some states, the authority to add CDC recommended vaccines to school attendance requirements has been handed to state health department officials by the state legislature.2 8

After the FDA granted Pfizer and Moderna an EUA to distribute their mRNA COVID biologicals in the U.S. in December 2020, there were efforts in 2021 and 2022 at the federal level to mandate the vaccine for federal workers and contractors, but it has been challenged and temporarily blocked in the courts. In 2021, the only COVID vaccine mandates enacted were created by state governors, state or local officials, or by private employers. No state legislature mandated the COVID vaccine for children to attend school this year.9 10

NVIC Opposed to COVID Vaccine Mandates

On Oct. 19, Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) submitted a referenced public comment to the CDC on behalf of NVIC opposing the addition of COVID vaccine to the federally recommended childhood vaccine schedule and cited that (1) FDA has not licensed the COVID vaccine for children under age 12; (2) there have been more than 1.3 million adverse events following receipt of mRNA COVID vaccinations to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS); (3) mRNA COVID vaccine was fast tracked and distributed under an EUA before full scientific evaluation of the product’s ability to prevent symptomatic and asymptomatic infection and transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and without full scientific evaluation of the product’s ability to cause serious complications, including inflammation of the heart and other reactions that may cause sudden death; and (4) there has been widespread acknowledgement that SARS-CoV-2 infections in the majority of children are asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and rarely cause injury or death, and (5) the COVID vaccine is available for parents who choose to give it to their children.

After the ACIP vote, Fisher made the following statement:

The novel mRNA COVID biological product, which is notoriously reactive and also ineffective at blocking infection and transmission of SARS-CoV-2, continues to be distributed to young children under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) granted by the FDA. I suppose we should not be surprised that the ACIP has voted to add it to the CDC’s recommended childhood vaccine schedule, even though it has not been fully licensed by FDA for use in children.3

She added:

The past three years has taught us that federal health officials have politicized the COVID vaccine development, licensing and policymaking process and rubber-stamped the questionable science provided by pharmaceutical companies. Now it is up to parents to let their state legislators know they want vaccine informed consent protections in public health laws and are opposed being forced to give their children the COVID vaccine as a condition of attending school, receiving medical care or for any other reason.3

ACIP Vaccine Recommendations Often Become State Mandates for School Attendance

While ACIP and CDC vaccination recommendations do not carry the weight of law, they are often adopted as law by state legislatures. According to NVIC, which has operated the online NVIC Advocacy Portal since 2010 to help residents in every state secure and defend informed consent protections in vaccines laws:

[H]istorically, after a new vaccine is put on the CDC’s childhood vaccine schedule and recommended for universal use by all children, there is an immediate push by lobbyists representing public health officials, medical trade associations and institutions committed to mandatory use of all government recommended vaccines to add the vaccine to state law requirements for daycare and school attendance.2

In the past two years, a number of states have enacted laws that specifically protect students and others from COVID vaccine mandates. Currently, 21 states in the U.S. prohibit forcing students to get COVID shots as a requirement to attend school, either through legislation or by executive order. Three states prohibit school COVID vaccine mandates for students under 12 years old. Twenty-six states have no prohibition for any ages. But this can change (either way) depending on the political makeup of state legislatures and governorships.11

As NVIC points out, in the past decade “a number of states have removed or restricted vaccine exemptions and some state health departments have been given the authority to automatically add vaccines included on the CDC’s recommended childhood vaccine schedule to legal requirements for children to attend daycare and school.”3

While no state has yet to implement a COVID vaccine mandate for children to attend school, the District of Columbia passed a COVID vaccine mandate that applies to children attending school this year. That mandate is being challenged in Congress. California does have a COVID vaccine mandate pending. Students in California will not be required to receive COVID shots during this school year, but may be required to get the shots as early as July 1, 2023.12 13

  1. Without full trials, without longer term trials, without any trials to discover if this can be safely used along with other vaccines. Get ready for big pharma to convert ALL childhood vaccines to mRNA type concoctions without a shred of trials or safety studies. These new injections will go for $130…and it cost big pharma about $1.20 to manufacture each dose. That is what I am seeing. Inflation anyone?

  2. CDC recommending the shot for children will open the states to mandatory shots for school admission.

    Since the shots do not stop transmission of Covid, under what theory does the government justify their mandatory orders?

    1. COVID shots are intended to reduce the severity of COVID outcomes, i.e. save lives. COVID shots were never intended to stop the transmission, other than to possibly reduce the duration of the transmissability stage.

      1. I keep seeing this posted around, that the shots weren’t intended to prevent transmission. I don’t understand why this is being said or that people actually believe it and then repeat it! It doesn’t take much searching to find Dr Fauci, among many others, stating that if you got the vaccine, you would not spread covid. Hence the whole push for ‘vaccinating so you can visit grandma.’ Yes, they were absolutely pushed to the public as intended to stop transmission. It’s only now, after almost 2 years of them pushing this vaccine, that we find out they were never even tested to see if it would prevent transmission. Please don’t believe the backpedaling lies.

        1. I don’t know what the point is here?
          By now almost everybody has covid and nobody is afraid. If one is mask up!
          On top I got the shots then covid and I got very sick. My kids got no shot got it and nothing happen. They got the shots after then all symptoms came up. Really confusing here!

      2. So if the shots were never intended to stop the transmission to affect other people, why is the government making my body their business by forcing people to take an experimental drug with known adverse effects?

        Btw, how is it proven the shot lessens symptoms? I’ve had no shot, no symptoms. How do you explain that?

        1. You mean like abortion? I’m with you. We are both pro-choice.

          One of my landlord’s sons didn’t believe in COVID. He didn’t get any shot but the rest of his family did. They all got COVID. They put him on an ECMO machine. They pulled the plug after 8 weeks when he didn’t respond. I helped him move a couch in the garage and three months later I was at his funeral. The rest of his vaccinated family had minor symptoms. How do you explain that? There’s only one way you can explain it; you’re wrong. I want to hear that dirty little mouth of yours admit you’re wrong.

          1. Why are you even on this site you don’t belong here.
            I’m pro life and I’m against abortion. Baby has a heartbeat at eight weeks how could you possibly kill a little human? Maybe one day you will open your eyes and see what you’ve done to everyone

  3. Heroin is not an approved and licensed FDA drug in which parents would give to their children, so why would parents find it acceptable to give their children this non-approved and non-licensed mRNA drug?

    Whether legal or illegal, drug pushers all have the same motive in mind, profit.

    1. I suspect it will not only kill some kids, but we have no idea what the long-term effects may be. Something tells me Pharma knows, though, and it may have something to do with hyperactivating the immune system in order to cause future and continuous disease which will guarantee Pharma profits, and 5g interaction and connectivity to their bodies.

  4. Mandatory Covid vaccines for anyone, let alone school aged children, should never happen what’s next after that?

  5. “there is an immediate push by lobbyists representing public health officials, medical trade associations and institutions committed to mandatory use of all government recommended vaccines”

    It’s time to face up to some uncomfortable facts. The vaccine industry has more sway than representative governance, and is corrupt top to bottom. Now we learn more with states finally divesting from companies like Blackrock, whom continues to push morally questionable content into our lives. These people can not be trusted and of course they’ll push more and more and more until they are stopped. Don’t look to your states or representatives for any assistance, because you will find none. Stop presuming there is a winning argument or some other logical position to correct the malfeasance, because there is none. What everyone is dealing with is a mass formation psychosis of the majority of persons where truth no longer matters. Their own pensions and retirement accounts are tied into this. Many are zealous believers on top of the financial tie ins. They consider themselves morally correct, and they will never stop until we physically stop them.

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
    ― C. S. Lewis

    1. Agreed, Colorado. Red, blue and purple all push their team mentality keeping us divided and in constant chaos, while they all rob the public till. You never hear a politician campaign on changing the corrupt system in which they operate, so until that day, the propaganda that “my vote is important” is a misnomer and I don’t waste my time.

  6. Is PEG more or less toxic than aluminum or mercury adjuvants?

    Does PEG cross the blood-brain barrier and lodge itself in brain tissue like aluminum or mercury?

    Does PEG break down over time as opposed to heavy metal adjuvants?

    Do COVID vaccines include adjuvants that provoke the immune system and persist in the body only in the name of increasing innate (general) immunity? (as opposed to adaptive immunity which is COVID virus-specific)

    What synergistic effects does PEG have with adjuvants of other vaccines when taken in bunches?

    These are my questions.

    1. There was an actual study performed to find the specific ingredients contained in the shots. One of the heavy metals found was gadolinium, used in MRI contrast. It does cross the BBB and contrary to what we are told (is safe and it leaves the body in 24-48 hours), it is retained for life.

      My Father, a veteran, received a flu shot last October and after reading his medical records, for the first time in many, many years, the description included the word “adjuvant”. When I inquired to his PCP what that adjuvant was, he provided a sheet from the CDC saying it was MF59 and safe. After further research, I found out MF59 was given to some soldiers in their anthrax vaccine (experimentally and without their knowledge) and has been found to be a cause of the Gulf War Syndrome. Now the VA is including MF59 in their flu shots to these veterans who made the sacrifice to protect our country.

          1. You have to ask yourself why The Vaccine Reaction doesn’t reprint that “study”? Because it’s crap. That’s propaganda spread by The Epoch Times. Falun Gong played you for a chump. Check out the wiki:

            The Epoch Times is a far-right international multi-language newspaper and media company affiliated with the Falun Gong new religious movement. The newspaper, based in New York City, is part of the Epoch Media Group, which also operates New Tang Dynasty (NTD) Television. The Epoch Times has websites in 35 countries but is blocked in mainland China.

            Donna…we care about credibility around here. Control yourself. Breathe.

  7. This is without doubt THE GREATEST CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY and the world is silent.

    Is there no humanity left in the world.

    Why are people silent. Just like in Germany during the Nazi regime.

    The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Who can know it?

    The amount of evidence is overwhelming about these murder shots.

    It’s time to stop the jabbing and end this genocide and begin the Nuremberg trials for every actor in this.

    1. Please stop posting ridiculous hyperbolic tirades like this. You’re not helping the vaccine safety movement. We are credible, grown up adults. We are not a brainless idiotic cult.

      1. I wish that was a real thing except the ingredients don’t add up they’re toxic and poisonous. I’d say natural medicine is the way to go to protect against any virus.
        Traditional Japanese medicine (TJM) uses most of the Chinese therapies including acupuncture, moxibustion, traditional Chinese herbology and traditional food therapy. Or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), system of medicine at least 23 centuries old that aims to prevent or heal disease by maintaining or restoring yinyang balance. China has one of the world’s oldest medical systems. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies date back at least 2,200 years,

  8. What would adding COVID ☣️? to the schedule do?
    Force insurance companies pay for them?
    We already had Mandate without a schedule.
    And parents won’t ,☣️? their child with a schedule and a mandate.
    Perhaps to instruction the doctor when to ☣️?.

  9. Interesting video. The speaker seems to be saying (with patent and documented proof) that the Covid shot was not meant to deter the Covid virus, and even though the virus could only be spread by blood and feces, the Covid virus was created to ignite fear (24/7 propaganda, lockdowns, masks, etc.) into forcing mRNA technology capable of tracking and communicating, into the public’s bodies. The video is a bit technical, but you will get the gist. Pure evil beyond our imagination.


    1. Come on mods. How on earth could you approve that comment? Let’s not entertain wackos. They really hurt the credibility of the vaccine safety movement.

      1. ktuffm, more importantly, why are the mods allowing name calling from someone who has no real proof of anything? I’m not a fan of censorship of ideas and speech, but personal attacks are another thing.

  10. Does Donna’s interesting video explain : Abnormal fibrosis blood clots found in 2021 by embalmer Richard hudchnen?

    virus combined to create a conigitive thinking parisight.

  11. Just because 1 no ? died doesn’t prove.
    Manny no ? people survive
    Many ? people die
    We all are expecting to die .
    Expand your data.
    Most people got COVID within the last year. Both ???, and ??.
    It appears that the sooner people got COVID more serious, regards of ?.

    Perhaps ktuffn landlord son had under line health condition that ktuffn is not aware of.

  12. There should never be a mandate for medical choices! And the Covid “vaccine” did not stop either transmission or infection- it clearly is not a vaccine. Don’t tell me it was never intended to stop Covid, yes it was but when it didn’t- they started that lie!
    Never should have been released for emergency use, much less mandated!
    FDA is no longer protecting the American people, they are no longer paid by Federal $$ and are paid by the very drug companies they approve drugs for- that is a conflict of interest!
    These shots are killing people – hundreds of thousands, but yet still pushing them on people even though its not needed. Covid has been reduced to a bad cold and does not prevent – why take this foreign substance into your body when you should know all the damage it has caused millions of people. And now giving it to kids who have no chance of dying from covid- the motive is not public health – its population control.
