Moderna has requested U.S. regulators to authorize their experimental COVID-19 shot for children under six years old.
If the FDA grants the authorization, Moderna’s COVID-19 injection becomes the first one available for the youngest age bracket.
The pharmaceutical company essentially has asked the FDA permission to poison millions of young children this summer.
JUST IN – Moderna has requested FDA to authorize its COVID vaccine injection for "emergency use" in children under 6.

BREAKING: Moderna asked U.S. regulators to authorize low doses of its COVID-19 vaccine for children younger than 6.
The long-awaited move may make shots available for millions of kids by summer. https://t.co/nlhbnXZvaa

Moderna submitted data to the Food and Drug Administration that it hopes will prove two low-dose shots can protect babies, toddlers and preschoolers — albeit not as effectively during the omicron surge as earlier in the pandemic.
“There is an important unmet medical need here with these youngest kids,” Dr. Paul Burton, Moderna’s chief medical officer, told The Associated Press. Two kid-size shots “will safely protect them. I think it is likely that over time they will need additional doses. But we’re working on that.”
Now, only children ages 5 or older can be vaccinated in the U.S., using rival Pfizer’s vaccine, leaving 18 million younger tots unprotected.
Moderna’s vaccine isn’t the only one in the race. Pfizer is soon expected to announce if three of its even smaller-dose shots work for the littlest kids, months after the disappointing discovery that two doses weren’t quite strong enough.
Not only is injecting children with these experimental shots immoral, but it’s also anti-science to inoculate them.
According to the CDC’s own data, 75% of kids have already built natural immunity to COVID-19.
Thus, Moderna wants to poison children to ‘protect’ them from an illness where most have recovered.
75% of all kids have covid antibodies, meaning they’ve already had covid and have natural immunity now. Why in the world would any parent in the country be getting their kids the covid shot? Or the covid booster? Total madness: pic.twitter.com/1Ws3usqXgl

But yet our national discourse still revolves around the assumption that we are dealing with an immuno-naïve population.

Per the CDC:
As of February 2022, approximately 75% of children and adolescents had serologic evidence of previous infection with SARS-CoV-2, with approximately one third becoming newly seropositive since December 2021. The greatest increases in seroprevalence during September 2021–February 2022, occurred in the age groups with the lowest vaccination coverage; the proportion of the U.S. population fully vaccinated by April 2022 increased with age (5–11, 28%; 12–17, 59%; 18–49, 69%; 50–64, 80%; and ≥65 years, 90%).*** Lower seroprevalence among adults aged ≥65 years, who are at greater risk for severe illness from COVID-19, might also be related to the increased use of additional precautions with increasing age (3).
These findings illustrate a high infection rate for the Omicron variant, especially among children. Seropositivity for anti-N antibodies should not be interpreted as protection from future infection. Vaccination remains the safest strategy for preventing complications from SARS-CoV-2 infection, including hospitalization among children and adults (4,5). COVID-19 vaccination following infection provides additional protection against severe disease and hospitalization (6). Staying up to date††† with vaccination is recommended for all eligible persons, including those with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection.
