CDC Adds COVID Shots to Recommended Vaccine Schedules for Children and Adults

CDC Adds COVID Shots to Recommended Vaccine Schedules for Children and Adults

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated recommended vaccine schedules  for children, adolescents and adults to include the COVID-19 biologics. The move is consistent with recommendations made by the agency’s Advisory Committee on Vaccine Practices (ACIP) in October 2022.1 2 3 4 5

The update of the recommended vaccination schedules was published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) on Feb. 9, 2023.6 According to the authors of the report, Neil Murthy, MD, MPH and A. Patricia Wodi, MD of the CDC:

This means COVID-19 vaccine is now presented as any other routinely recommended vaccine and is no longer presented in a special “call out” box as in previous years. This, in a sense, helps ‘normalize’ this vaccine and sends a powerful message to both healthcare providers and the general public that everyone ages six months and older should stay up to date with recommended COVID-19 vaccines (including a booster, when eligible), just as they would with any other routinely recommended vaccine.6

Under the new guidelines, doctors are told to give children six months to four years old an initial series of two doses of either Pfizer/BioNTech’s Comirnaty or Moderna/NIAID’s Spikevax messenger RNA (mRNA) monovalent shot, followed by a third dose of either the Spikevax or Comirnaty mRNA bivalent booster shot. Children five to 11 years old are recommended to get two doses of either the Comirnaty or Spikevax mRNA monovalent shot, followed by a third dose of the bivalent version of either of these shots.1 2 3 4 5

CDC officials tell doctors to give children 12 to 18 years of age two doses of either the Comirnaty or Spikevax mRNA monovalent shot or two doses of Novavax’s Nuvaxovid protein-based, adjuvanted vaccine, followed by a third dose of a bivalent booster shot. Adults are recommended to get two doses of either the Comirnaty or Spikevax mRNA monovalent shot.1 2 3 4 5

COVID Vaccine Still Not Officially Licensed by FDA for Young Children

The CDC first recommended COVID shots for children between the ages of six months and five years in June 2022, but the agency did not officially add the shots to its vaccination schedule.5 6 7

The COVID shots, including the mRNA vaccines produced by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna that hold market share in the U.S., have still not been officially licensed by the FDA for young children and are being distributed under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). This is the first time in U.S. history that an unlicensed vaccine has been added to the government’s recommended childhood vaccination schedule.8

Marc Siegel, MD, professor of medicine at New York University’s Langone Medical Center said he supports the idea of adding the COVID shots to the CDC schedule for children five years of age and older because it will help with insurance coverage. However, he does not support the shots being added to the schedule for children six months to five years old. Either way, though, Dr. Siegel stressed that he believes the vaccine should not be mandated and the decision of whether or not to get the COVID shots should remain a personal choice by parents on behalf of a minor child.7

“I feel strongly that the vaccine should not be mandated,” Dr. Siegel said.7

Most Parents Resist Giving COVID Shots to Their Children

Despite the CDC’s decision to recommend the COVID shots for children, many parents in the United States remain hesitant about giving these shots to their kids.

A study published in the MMWR on Feb. 17, 2023 found that, as of Dec. 31, 2022, only 5.1 percent of American children between the ages of six months and four years had completed the primary series of COVID shots. For children 5-11 years old and 12-15 years old, only 24 percent and 33.3 percent respectively had completed the primary series of COVID shots.9

The MMWR cited data from the Kaiser Family Foundation COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor indicating that among parents of unvaccinated children six months to four years of age, some 80 percent were concerned about the side effects of the COVID shots, while 70 percent were concerned that the shots would not prevent their children from getting COVID.9

    We live in Florida. Since January we have found that the back room support in doctors’ offices awful. It is not unusual to place 6 calls a day with no return calls. Sometimes you can’t even leave a message. We have had three specialists tell us they can’t get office help. We have been working two months to schedule a needed surgery to no avail. This is crisis. Wish I had a suggestion. People don’t want to work. As a nation we are in trouble

    • ktuffm   March 3, 2023 at 2:48 pm

      Fallacy: generalizing.
      Not all doctors’ offices support is awful or don’t return calls or messages, just the ones you went to. My doctor’s office is great. As a nation we are not all in trouble. One reason there’s a shortage of staffing is COVID burnout.

  2. Tom   February 20, 2023 at 9:00 am

    What national emergencies? Unless it’s a nuclear war, alien invasion (UFO or human) or a life threatening meteor, there are NO national emergencies. 99.999% of all emergencies are local. As to whether or not a local area is prepared for an emergency is the question.

    If there was a real medical emergency for the entire country, millions would already be dead or dying before the stupid CDC could even invent a terrifying name to call it.

    • Colorado   February 20, 2023 at 1:07 pm

      The only national emergency of note, is that the corrupted US politicians are having their money laundering channels compromised, which is why they’re desperate to keep sending money to Eukaraine. Healthcare is way way down the list.

    • Peter   February 20, 2023 at 2:53 pm

      Well stated. No, there is no “national emergency”.
      But, yes, there are major problems with regard to obtaining medical staff, but this is not outdone (and it is directly related to) the manufactured “supply chain” problems, massive inflation and the destruction of our domestic petroleum industry (based on a premise that would have gotten you laughed out of an 8th grade science class as little as 10 years ago: That carbon dioxide is toxic!? It is the basis of life on Earth.)
      A glance at Western Europe will reveal where we are going: Energy/utility bills at 2-3x what we are paying now, continued inflation (which is nothing more than a gov created tax/transfer of wealth from the working people to the elites.) and medical errors going from #3 to the #2 or #1 cause of deaths.
      Why is all this happening? Because we allow it to.

    • ktuffm   March 3, 2023 at 2:51 pm

      Fallacy: not all emergencies are local.
      COVID is a national emergency. Extreme weather is a national emergency. Misinformation campaigns are a national emergency.
      Fallacy: labeling.
      The CDC is not stupid. Their vaccine policy certainly leaves something to be desired but they excel in many other areas in service of the public like tobacco education, rape crisis, promoting health education, and training public health workforce to name a few.

    • chickenLittle   March 3, 2023 at 10:48 pm

      WHY don’t people know that the CDC is a business…they own a load of vaccine patents and they’re sort of like the Federal Reserve….not a government entity.

      They’re all into sneaky back door deals and it’s not about health, it never was. It’s about the destruction of all of us.

      Don’t believe the hype.

  3. Jean James   February 20, 2023 at 9:05 am

    The current staffing crisis for all healthcare professionals is complex. I’ve been a nurse for 35 years. I watched the transition of power that physicians gave over to the hospital systems and medical groups. I watched as hospitalists replaced the patients attending physician, and thought at that time they were selling their souls! My mother saw it even more because she grew up in the Bronx and misses the days of the doctors home visit. A Doctor who sees their patient in the home understands the patients environment, so when the patient gets sick and ends up in the hospital, they’re able to understand and care for them more holistically. Now what we have is chop-shop medicine, and each little thief takes their peace and it’s the patient who is left stripped and bare.
    I was fired for not taking a Covid vaccine. I am part of the staffing problem. I had my one episode of Covid, got over it, and I’ve been healthy ever since. I cannot say the same for some of my former colleagues who took the vaccine. However, if the hospital would be willing to rehire me I would only go back on the terms of no loss of service because I didn’t do anything wrong. I would be willing to go back and take care of patients again because that’s what I love to do. I will never be willing to allow the medical industrial complex to dictate my personal healthcare!

    • LindseyH   February 20, 2023 at 4:44 pm

      I have witnessed that same that you addressed in your last paragraph.

    • Myra Dobbs   February 20, 2023 at 7:01 pm

      Agree. Several top ICU nurses survived the 2020 Covid onslaught, only to be punished for refusing the jab. Thank you for your hard work and many years of dedication.

    • ktuffm   March 3, 2023 at 2:54 pm

      Fallacy: generalization.
      Just because you got COVID and made a recovery without a vaccine doesn’t mean it’s the same for everyone else. For example, my landlord’s son died from Delta strain COVID. He was not vaccinated. He was a candidate for the ECMO machine because he was healthy non-smoker and had a supportive family. They pulled the plug even though he was still consciously blinking. His lungs never recovered from COVID.

    • chickenLittle   March 3, 2023 at 10:54 pm

      Dear Jean,
      Good for you for not taking the lethal injection. Everyone I know who took it got sick…some died and one had a heart attack, but that’ll never be blamed on the shot. None of it will.

      Regarding home visits, that must’ve been wonderful for the patients. Seeing my frail cancer ridden dad being so weak and we had a heck of a time getting him to the oncologist, who ended up killing him off with an ‘experimental’ treatment, it makes me ‘sick’ to see how ‘modern medicine’ is all for the medical industry’s bottom line. I saw the amount of money the insurance paid for the poisons of chemo ‘therapy’, and it approached $500,000. And that’s only with chemo…and one patient. No wonder they don’t want a real CURE…that would make them way less money.

    That’s what happens when associations and chemical companies control your captured profession. Sadly Americans have become fat, stupid and brain polluted willing victims beyond redeeming. The great reset needs to happen in peoples minds. PMA holistic care needs to take over NOW. America get off the corporate fat cow toxic train wreck we’ve been hurdled into. Go local, grow local, exercise, don’t quackcinate. Health can be simplified if we exit this nightmare of a system. Abandon and Bankrupt the old model.

    • Colorado   February 20, 2023 at 1:05 pm

      Quackcinate, genius. And how would you propose we handle kidney stones, blood transfusions, and cancer under your new holistic model? Don’t stare at the ducks so long, you become one yourself.

    • Laurie Raymond   February 20, 2023 at 4:41 pm

      There needs to be support and recognition for alternative systems of medicine. In Colorado, Naturopaths (NDs) cannot practice medicine on a par with MDs. Medicare does not cover naturopathic care. People like me, who are used to collaborative options where NDs and MDs have full rights to practice, as in Wahington State, either have to go with the full western model or pay out of pocket for care. I’m very low income, but opt to pay for a naturopath whom I trust and forego the industrial medicine model – even though that means I have to find a DO for a referral for things like physical therapy, and give up on care that Medicare covers. Fortunately, I’m a healthy 76 and work hard to stay that way. But people do better when they have confidence in their medical providers. I don’t see h ow that is possible in the current system.

    • ktuffm   March 3, 2023 at 2:56 pm

      Fallacy: gross generalization, labeling.
      It’s not even worth cataloguing. You’re apparently just here to spread cognitive distortions. Making people unhappy. Spread distrust in American institutions.

  5. S   February 20, 2023 at 9:57 am

    Any smart person, especially those who were smart enough not to take a Covid shot or booster, won’t worry about this. Even those who did believe in what the gov’t was selling will learn other ways of getting better besides going to the hospital, especially if they have Covid.

    • chickenLittle   March 3, 2023 at 10:57 pm

      S, you got it right.
      Like my mother said (before the doctors killed her off), only go to the hospital if you can’t stop the bleeding, can’t stand the pain or can’t breathe. Her whole life was filled with pain and misery, she trusted allopathic medicine too much.

  6. Jill Herendeen   February 20, 2023 at 10:37 am

    Exactly right, though under-stated. I bet that if the taxpayer money which gets handed to hospitals were handed straight to the public, to hire qualified clinicians when they want them, Americans would be a lot healthier.

    • Colorado   February 20, 2023 at 1:03 pm

      That’s called the first receivers of money argument, first receivers call the shots. Which is why you are an idealist, it will never happen. They print the money on behalf of the first receivers, and would never engage in such monetarily destructive processes if they did not get first receiver benefit. The very second such a ‘direct to citizen’ model takes hold, they’ll shut the printing presses off immediately. Learn how the federal reserve works.

  7. Kay   February 20, 2023 at 10:52 am

    Reported numbers show 33,000 to 35,000 health care workers were fired in New York State (including office and other staff positions like food service and housekeeping). This was done under the pretense of “voluntary resignations” where the employee was informed of their last date of employment if they did not rescind their previously granted religious exemption. Many lawsuits resulted and are in progress, with the latest ruling for one in January saying the mandate was null and void, but hospitals are not rehiring the fired employees and are ignoring letters from those employees to return. What are the numbers for other states?

  8. Barbara   February 20, 2023 at 10:54 am

    When insurance companies are allowed to buy medical practices and dictate what drs do with their patients, I.e limits on time spent talking to patients and ordering excessive tests, loss of confidence by the patient and dr and conflict of interest is the result. In my current curiosity. I wonder why anti trust and monopoly suits aren’t filed to deter.

    • Colorado   February 20, 2023 at 1:00 pm

      It’s the scale of it all, along with corrupt governance. You could not find a lawyer to represent you, and if you did, you could not compete financially to afford the lawyers efforts anyways. These corporations sick literally hundreds if not thousands of lawyers on anyone whom dares to rise up with class action or anti trust. They own politicians so if push came to shove, they’d merely write updated legislation to protect themselves. It’s called self asking regulation. Publicly these institutions complain and decry the excessive regulation which inhibits competition, but behind the scenes these same companies actually employ the legalese legislative proposal writers, whom just hand the industry funded self asking regulation over to their puppet politicians, whom all ram it over for approval. Blame the federal reserve, because taxing money is a form of theft, and they all are first receivers of the taxation benefit. It’s why we deal with inflation, insane prices and falling effective wages, the federal reserve just prints billions of dollars and gives it all away to every bank, major corporate interest, and even hands this money to a million and a half pet project 501c’s and climbing. They’ve sold all of our posterity down the river and nothing short of abolishing the federal reserve will break these now steadfast well established corrupt circles of influence.

    “…at the expense of the American people, government, big pharma, and insurance have put themselves at the forefront of medicine where doctors and patients used to be.” This is the crux of the problem. Doctors folded early on to the pressure from this Leviathan, which began in earnest in the 1980s, and now the deal is done. I am a doctor who did not fold; I quit.

    • Louise Gallagher   February 20, 2023 at 1:48 pm

      I am so sorry they forced you to make a decision that I suspect you didn’t want. What a loss to us patients. Government, pharma and insurance does not care about US. It is a loss to society to lose a quality physician as you. If you did not fold that makes you a quality doctor!!!

  10. Melinda G Gladstone   February 20, 2023 at 12:24 pm

    Well, the hospitals MANDATED the jabs. People had reactions People became disabled. LOOK at all the MD’s in Canada that died after the shot. People left the profession if they did not want the shot. Look at the staggering amount of athletes dropping dead. This can no longer be ignored.

  11. Colorado   February 20, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    People are pretty ignorant to even presume big hospital complexes, even down to franchise corner stores, are anything but a money making model. Not for profit means they pay less tax, and can therefore carve out even greater profits. Not for profits have their own not for profits and this proliferation of 501c companies has resulted in exponential increases in corruption. This effect is true from legal to medical to real estate, to the very top at government where the grant money is doled out. Hospitals do not create cures they create customers. The doctors do not answer to patients, they answer to insurance companies. Here is your long list of side effects. It is illegal to prescribe non gmo chemical free foods as a cure these days. Rick Simpson, race for the cure, the miracle of cbd oils. Dr Burzynski, the cancer cure cover up. We’ve had cancer cures for decades, they’re called anti neo plastons. The ignorant people of this century know how to read and write, they’re ignorant because they believe all the lies these massive industrial complex companies tell them. Anyone whom comes up with a new model is crushed and swept away. Greed rules the day in a centralized society. Peasants unite! Better living through central planning. As rising tyranny rules the day and socialism becomes ingrained in every aspect of our lives. People used to pay out of pocket for all health care except major emergencies, of which insurance covered. The exponential rising costs now have a factor of something like 20 or more compared to a mere few decades ago. When a stroke event rings up a $400,000 bill. When a stomach surgery rings up a $300,000 bill. When a 2 hour visit to the emergency room just to get a few pills and an x ray rings up a $15,000 bill. If you need someone to blame for medical industry failures, look no further than insurance companies and hospital management. Top heavy bloated institutions where most money goes to profit, not care. Welcome to your new caste system in America. How’s globalism working out for you personally? One of the top five medical institutions in America won’t let me get care, because I refuse to wear the mask. So much for that no additional cost insurance our employer provided us. Nobody cares about the injustice, all these people see is dollar signs in their eyes. Every single person whom supported mandatory vaccines for children are to blame, that’s where this launched off many decades ago.

      Dead on. It’s the people’s fault really. To lazy. To read. They watch tell-lie-vision and SM. Instead of investigation and education.

      • Colorado   February 27, 2023 at 3:21 pm

        Last week I tried to see a doctor at Kaiser regarding what I feel may be a quite serious medical condition emerging. He diagnosed me within 1 minute, that I did not need or deserve care, because I refused to wear a mask.

    • chickenLittle   March 3, 2023 at 11:00 pm

      All they do is lie. UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center), one of the biggest “non profits” (ha ha) and one of the biggest EMPLOYERS in the city of Pittsburgh a few years ago claimed they did not have “employees”. I guess the thousands of people that go to work there every day were just doing it for free? Ha! I think they were trying to avoid unionization.

  12. DG   February 20, 2023 at 1:07 pm

    I was a nurse for 37 years before I decided to quit in 2022. I still have more years I could be working because I am only 58. I left because of having to wear a face diaper 8-10 hours a day every day. It is so ridiculous to me that at least where I live the face diaper is still mandatory for patients and staff in any medical facility. In talking with former co-workers the word is that they will never get rid of them. I worked in a same day surgery center before quitting. We had patients coming out of general anesthesia and nurses putting face diapers on them. These patients could not protect their airway yet nurses were putting face diapers on them. I refused and that didn’t go over well. I have lost all respect for healthcare because it is not about the health of the patient. It is about money, greed and perpetuating the fear mongering and bullying. I am unvaxxed and was given a hard time but did get an exemption. I just have lost interest in a system that doesn’t really care about the patient or the staff.

    • Peter   February 20, 2023 at 3:08 pm

      I understand exactly what you are talking about. As soon as you voice your opposition to the single most insidious, scientifically absurd and dehumanizing item (mask mandates), you will be labeled as “the enemy” and it will be the “beginning of the end” of your job.
      Hospital systems (and others) value one thing: absolute blind followers.

    The medical profession brought this on themselves with their corrupt crap they have pulled for the past 3 years.

  14. Doc   February 20, 2023 at 1:17 pm

    So… mandate the poison on healthcare = leaving practice or dying. Then those that stayed 1/2 have prob died. Then we have all the clueless sheep who took it dying. On top of regulate sick clients. The solution sounds like China. More government run medical facilities they use to run experiments on the sheep. More healthcare mafia. I would highly suggest people start educating themselves in health. Pay for classes. But books before they are gone learn basic chem a&p. Nutrition etc. or find a good natural doc near you who will care and teach you bc. This sounds just like pharma. Push the disease and sell the cure. Same MO. Gov healthcare does not work. Look at Canada and Europe it’s shit. Once these assholes get their hooks in they don’t stop. And overthrowing this tyranny is desperately needed. Before everyone is to sick to.

  15. Cheryl Barrett   February 20, 2023 at 1:21 pm

    I recently viewed a video “The Dark Truth of America’s Federation of State Medical Boards” which very few doctors are aware of. The video stated that the AMA does not set the standards, they do. Their headquarters is located in Texas. This board is an undercover target that needs to be brought into the open and exposed for how they are now controlling what doctors can and cannot do. Shame on them. I practiced nursing for more than 30 years: med-surg, critical care, academia, homecare, supervision, writer, etc. I do not understand how any educated nurse could not see that this mRNA creation mislabeled as a vaccine was really genetic engineering. I did not even need to open my textbook to remember the facts. It was also evident if you went on Pfizer’s website that there was more to it. And, the pharmacy, when asked for a PDR (Physician Drug Reference) or package insert, could only provide a pharma handout insufficient for use. What about those giving the shots? Where was their intelligence, critical thinking to look for this data prior to administration. Then there was the “don’t allow release of the clinical data from Pfizer Shot for 75 years, yet another red flag. This data was obtained not only by multiple FOIA request that went unanswered, but through law suits. The results were astounding and confirmed all that I suspected and more. I had COVID – like a prolonged cold, but I eat organic (very little GMO stuff, filtered water, lots of sun and supplements. Did not fall for OR get any shots. Doing great. Avoid hospitals, but support those around me. My 104 year old neighbor also did not get the shot, doing well. My daughter is a nurse and lost her job too.Our biggest concern is mitigating shedding and are following many holistic doctors suggestions along with detoxing. God Bless us all. Here is the video link I talked about above.

  16. Cheryl Barrett   February 20, 2023 at 1:51 pm

    About the staffing crisis. Ever since I became a nurse in 1986, staffing shortages have cycled in spurts. I graduated just when they were hiring like mad again. I shifted my role as a nurse many times seeking satisfaction, but continued as a caregiver, teacher, writer. The final shift occurred over time to holistic care that lead me out of traditional nursing. Many nurses have followed suit and become holistic nurse coaches like me and my daughter. No longer bedside nurses, but helping clients survive healthcare deficiencies. So we are among a group that will not return to participate in the “old healthcare profit” business. We are mending and supporting from the outside.
    A friend’s father is in the VA and often does not get bathed and follow up on whether or not he is eating well. Answer is “not enough staff”. Yet there is no cost of care reduction. And still COVID fear.
    I share with those around me to have a patient advocate go with them to doctors or hospital. Problem here is that there are COVID gate-keepers that want to control who enters. Where is “patient at center of care”. It is a real challenge to moderate the “PROTOCOL” treatment vs what works best for the patient considering the whole person.
    I was in the ER May 2020 for a broken wrist during the first fear panic times of COVID and was taken right into a room. I was one of 3 in the ER, outstanding since my previous experience as a supervisor was packed ERs on Memorial Day and many times during the year we were on divert when beds were full. I asked the ER doc and she said, that’s not happening here in hushed tones. in 2022, I took a neighbor to the hospital ER for UTI, again maybe 4 people in ER and she was taken right into a bed for treatment.
    Need to keep in mind that the “shortage” is definitely related to staffing at all levels: clinical staff, support staff, doctors, lab techs, rehab and more. BUT what I think they have done to hold off / divert this people core crisis, is to decrease the # of available beds. When you decrease the # of beds, then the staffing appears to support stability. However, this impacts the # patients can be served. During low census states I have had floors shut down and staff even laid off (not during COVID but in the past this is how it worked). I have also had high census states, mostly during holiday times and had to open floors for beds. Sometimes even shift patients to PACU, stay in ER, etc. During SARS years ago, we off-loaded patients to early discharge, nursing homes, etc. And we did not have a nursing shortage for SARS or during H1N1.
    So I believe these factors have contributed to the shortage, but the biggest factor I believe is making the COVID shot mandatory and terminating staff. Hospitals have been denying there is a shortage of staff for a while (misinformation) and are finally having to admit it. One issue I have, is that they have no sense of remorse, wrong doing or responsibility for the problem.

  17. LindsayH   February 20, 2023 at 5:13 pm

    Same story for me. Our hospitals report the “beds are full” as if there is a hospital full of sick patients, not that it’s full due to staffing ratios after firing doctors and nurses for saying no to the “experimental vaccine”. I also refused the vaccination, after we (the RNs) saw that reading the package insert… there was NOTHING there. Only 2/6 nurses took the shot. Then the 12 hour shifts in a mask that only 2 years earlier got my clinic a state citation for caregivers wearing them too long after CVC access care between 2 patients. The promises that those who got the vaccine would be able to unmask and watching very angry patients find out that wasn’t true. To be banned from a clinic due to a positive Covid test, meaning nothing except you were now unable to see your PCP for antibiotics and an inhaler while having bacterial pneumonia… not supported by real science! but rules made by state and federal bureaucracy The inconsistencies and deception were glaring to the nurses, fire fighters and paramedics.

    God Love Your Heart Jean !
    Wish there were more of you in the world… common sense, grace, ‘the eyes to see’ and a solid backbone ! The most shocking of all is not the fact that this is a takedown of humanity, but the compliance with it and the lack of interest in the decades old patents and documented results of what’s been found in these vials by doctors who do care.
    The only way this ‘financial model of medicine’ will end is if the doctors and all medical personnel stand up and refuse this tyranny and democide, and re-start real medicine…the holistic practice of medicine that Rockefeller usurped decades ago…although, I stopped holding my breath on that one. The damage has already been done and there’s no fixing the damage to DNA, or removal of the nanobots/AI operation set up for the digital $ control it was designed for. The CDC told us a few years back…and the Zombie Apocalypse is now upon us. Hold on everyone !

  19. Chip   February 20, 2023 at 11:05 pm

    The hospital administrators only (proudly) put on a mask when / where they will be seen !
    I dare them to ‘follow the science’ for one month, let mask wearing be voluntary. If they are honest with the findings, we ‘ignorant’ workers will finally have proof the mask us Useless.

  20. Sylvia   February 21, 2023 at 9:08 am

    I agree with the article but also would like t point out another reason for the medical shortages. I’m an older nurse (still working) who initially received my ADN. However, they were encouraging everyone to return to school for their BSN which I eventually received taking 1-2 courses at the time (before online courses). First my local hospital cut the number of CNA’s working down to 2/40 patients from 5. Later many hospitals really pushed the BSN nurse & hardly hired any LPN’s. This made many nursing schools close the great Diploma nursing schools & many of the 2 year schools stopped having the first year students sit for the LPN license (as I did). Therefore, some may not have made the grade or life circumstances caused them to drop out after the first year & nothing to “show” for it. It is great to earn a license for the 1st year. LPN’s can the RN’s & do many tasks. If more schools brought the LPN program & appreciated the ADN’s more there might be more nurses. Some BSN nurses don’t like the “bedside” nursing & prefer to continue on & get their Masters so they can “teach” but may not have experience themself! I only see the nursing shortage getting worse unless some major changes are made.

    There is no nursing shortage. There is a nursing retention problem. As you stated these large hospital conglomerates have put profit above patients.

    My wife is trying to get into a nursing program, after a solid 20 years of medical assistant. She’s constantly told by all these educational institutes that she must take all these vaccines, many also insist she should not be working and could not go through RN programs at night or part time.

    The medical staffing shortage has nothing to do with how many people want into the field. It has everything to do with restrictive cost prohibitive access and egregious compliance terms.

      It’s ironic….if you want to donate blood where I live, they don’t make you wear a mask. When they had the mask mandate I refused to donate blood. Period! It makes me dizzy to wear one as it is, and I don’t want to fall over in public and knock my teeth out.

    My apologies to all those who commented on this article over the past 2-3 days. We’ve had some technical difficulties that unfortunately ended with those comments disappearing. Please feel free to repeat your comments if you can recall what you wrote. The current 34 comments that you see were actually made in response to the article “Health Care Staff Shortages a “National Emergency”

    Again, very sorry about this.

    Here is a very interesting interview about the statistics of deaths globally since 2020.

    Looks like someone hack into website and switch comments.
    Their comments were post for nurse shortage emergency.

    I hope you keep a back up.

    I don’t like the vaccine schedule. But something to keep in mind:
    a) COVID is particularly deadly to some people and
    b) COVID is most likely man-made so it’s novel to our immune systems so it’s not like a mild case of chicken pox.
    c) at least there are COVID vaccines that use PEG adjuvant instead of heavy metals.

    All is not ideal but certainly all is not lost. Let’s not overreact with generalizations or labeling.

    Several commenters in this thread have an agenda to use cognitive distortions simply to degrade trust in our government and institutions. Beware their generalization and labeling.

    Just do the research. As far as I know of, the survival rate of Covid is 99%.

    Only 3 💉? We know the vaccine only lasts 4 months.
    What about previous infection?
    Why use the original strain no longer dominant stain?
    The omicron vaccine became obsolete Thanksgiving. Why not wait until update version?
    What about the safety data???
