“New York City will close its municipal-run COVID-19 vaccination sites for children younger than 5 years old next week,” Gothamist wrote.
The outlet cited a lack of demand for infant COVID-19 shots.
“The more parents become educated on the potential adverse effects of infant jabs, the more we’ll see this trend continue,” Dr. Simone Gold tweeted.
JUST IN: New York City is closing “Infant COVID Vaccination Sites” citing lack of demand for infant COVID jabs.
The more parents become educated on the potential adverse effects of infant jabs, the more we’ll see this trend continue.

The city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene confirmed the closures, but did not specify the date the sites will close. But City Councilmembers Lincoln Restler and Gale Brewer have said the sites will shutter on August 14th. As of Thursday, online appointments for children younger than 5 at the city-run sites were not available after August 14th on the health department’s vaccine finder website. Kids in this age group have been eligible for COVID-19 vaccines for less than two months.
The city’s COVID-19 tracker has not publicly released data on the progress of toddler vaccination, but the health department said rates are dropping.
“The number of vaccinations at these sites has decreased in recent weeks, and we always planned to transition vaccination for very young children to providers,” health department spokesperson Patrick Gallahue said. “In fact, nearly 500 providers in New York City have administered vaccine(s) to this age group.”
The city opened 10 sites on June 22nd where young kids could get doses of the two-shot Moderna vaccine, while many pharmacies and pediatricians offered the Pfizer vaccine, which requires three shots for full inoculation.
Parents have made a defiant stand against COVID-19 shots for children under five years of age.
Despite massive propaganda from Biden, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and others, the majority of parents say they will never get their children inoculated against COVID-19.
In a Kaiser Family Foundation survey, 43 percent of parents of children ages 6 months through 4 years said they would refuse the shots for their kids.
"Parents who might be predisposed…said that lack of access was a significant barrier, a concern expressed by more Black and Hispanic parents than white parents. About 44 percent of Black parents worried about having to take time off from work…" https://t.co/OG1rMi2LAS

However, New York City isn’t done peddling dangerous vaccines to the general public.
As Gothamist noted, the city-run toddler sites are transitioning to monkeypox vaccine administration.
“Gallahue said the city-run toddler sites are pivoting to monkeypox vaccine administration — at least two city locations in Brooklyn that had dispensed the so-called baby COVID vaccine have already made the switch,” Gothamist wrote.
