COVID Vaccinated Children More Likely to Be Hospitalized for Respiratory Illness

A recent study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) found that more than half of the children treated at emergency departments (EDs) and hospitalized for respiratory illness between July 1, 2022 and Sept. 30, 2023 had been vaccinated for COVID-19, compared to less than half of unvaccinated children.1 2 3 4

The study, which examined data from the New Vaccine Surveillance Network (NVSN) of children six months to four years of age treated at seven pediatric medical centers in the United States, looked at 6,377 children who had never received a dose of an mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid) COVID shot (either Pfizer/BioNTech’s Comirnaty or Moderna/NIAID’s Spikevax), 776 children who had received at least two doses, and 281 children who had received one dose.1 2 3 4

The  NVSN conducts population-based, prospective surveillance for acute respiratory illness (ARI) in children at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania; Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri; Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Ohio; Golisano Children’s Hospital in Rochester, New York; Seattle Children’s Hospital in Washington; Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston and Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.3

Of the vaccinated children in the study, 55 percent were hospitalized for a respiratory illness, while only 44 percent of the unvaccinated children were hospitalized.1 2 3

Vaccinated Kids at Higher Risk for Inpatient Hospitalization

Commenting on the results of the study, Harvey Risch, MD, PhD, professor emeritus of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health, stated:

This means that upon visiting hospital emergency departments, compared to unvaccinated children, vaccinated children had increased risks of inpatient hospitalization, very statistically significantly so.1 2

According to the study, children who were vaccinated for COVID were also more likely to have undergone intensive care, require supplemental oxygen and die. Despite this, the CDC study observed that receipt of two or more mRNA COVID shot doses was 40 percent “effective in preventing COVID-19–associated ED visits and hospitalization.”1 2 3 4

Dr. Risch, however, noted:

No one cares whether the vaccines reduce COVID-associated hospitalization if at the same time they increase non-COVID-associated hospitalization.1 2

  1. In other news, vaccinated children often have a quite long list of other complications and illnesses, which statistical comparisons prove, children whom have not taken vaccinations, deal with on a far less frequent basis. Ear infections, asthma, and being on the autistic spectrum appear to be some of the more common side effects of youth vaccination schedules. The vaccination schedule creates medical customers for life, enriches the medical industrial complex, and accomplishes next to nothing in terms of providing a long term positive health benefit. Nearly the entire vaccination industry is a house of cards built upon lies. There are millions of natural low cost non patented remedies for every ailment out there, yet people still choose to believe in magic and fairy tales that a cure all exists in the form of a tiny little vial attached to a needle. The notion you can inject health or cure yourself of disease by injecting even more disease directly into your blood stream, absurd. They deliver the vaccine, ‘measure a response’, and say; voila! Mission accomplished. Then they move on to the next vaccination development scheme and refuse to examine the verifiable statistical differences long term which prove without a doubt that having delivered that vaccine ultimately causes more harm than perceived good. Of course if you are exposed to pathogens there will be a response, of course there will be. Purposefully doing that to yourself over and over again, bypassing your bodies natural pathogenic defense systems is what grinds down peoples immune systems to the point they can no longer deal with even minor health issues, a cascading failure of health occurs, and they get very ill or die. All stops on the money making conveyor belt which is wester medicine. Get off that ride with haste, legitimately reclaim your health in the kitchen and the gym.

    1. The above comment is as close to a Masterpiece as possible. So, so true and broken down in a way all doctors should be FORCED to understand or leave. I just lost a 32 year old young man I mentored and considered a friend. It was awful and I traced it back to everything you stated and Vax-Unvax details. Throw in massive GMO infusions of our food starting in the late 80’s and pre-existing pcb’s and it may be a bit more complex. Thank you.

  2. i myself believe this as my grandchildren, both vaccinated, are now constantly ill with some sort of viral infection and take much longer to get over them than before. however, i wonder if the vaccinated children in the study had the vaccine to begin with because they were in high risk groups, hopefully the study did something to control for this otherwise you could get something akin to healthy user bias that occurs when adults who take flu vaccine have fewer heart attacks but it is only because those people are healthier over all and take other preventative measures and have greater access to care
