New Pfizer-funded study shows correctly dosed mRNA Covid jabs are useless in children under 5

Scientists reported that the approved three-dose schedule of Pfizer Covid jabs for children younger than 5 did not reduce Covid-related medical visits in these children. Friday.

Proponents of the Covid jab claim that the shots help people avoid serious illness from Covid, although they offer brief protection at best against the infection. But the new study suggested that shots fail on that front as well, offering only risk and no benefit, at least in young children.

Pfizer itself paid for the study, published as a “research letter” in the Journal of the American Medical Association.


Researchers, including one from Pfizer, tried to obscure the finding of failure for the standard regimen.

In the paper, they combined this with results from an unapproved two-dose regimen that showed a modest benefit. They then reported overall results for “at least two” doses.

This presentation is scientifically weird.

Pfizer, the Food and Drug Administration and the CDC say a three-dose regimen is standard for young children. This is the dosing schedule that Pfizer tested in its clinical trial.

If researchers choose to report the results of children who received a partial vaccination in the category of vaccinated, why don’t they also include those who have received a single dose?

Instead, they did not report single-dose results.

Furthermore, reporting two traits is protective while three lacks any biological plausibility. If the vaccine works, three doses should produce a stronger immune response of two.

In fact, Pfizer added a third dose to the standard regimen for young children because it feared that two injections would not work well enough. (Injections for young children contain less mRNA, the active ingredient that produces an immune response, than those for adults.)

But combining two traits with three helped the researchers in one way: It allowed them to relegate the failure of the approved dosing program to a single line in the document.

This chart looks more complicated than it is.

See the blue dots? These are the ones that matter.

Here are the ones that pose a risk to children who took the shots as recommended by Pfizer and the Centers for Disease Control. See how the three blue dots are basically stuck on the horizontal line 1.0?

Now see how the top end of the brackets around the blue dots are above the line? These parentheses are the “confidence intervals”. If they’re above 1, no one can tell if the shots help, do nothing, or hurt, at least according to this study. And they are WELL above 1.


The study’s finding comes just days after the Centers for Disease Control again began pushing Covid mRNA shots on children, a recommendation that few other countries make.

Since regulators authorized the shots for young children last year, most parents have rejected them. Only about 2 million children, or 10 percent of American children under the age of five, have received even an mRNA shot. According to the CDC. Of these, barely half have completed theirs primary series of three plans.

From the beginning, the effort to approve and promote mRNAs in young children has been problematic.

In December 2021, after Pfizer had started the large clinical trial needed to approve the injections for young children, the company added a third dose in the dosing schedule. That change violated basic rules of clinical trial design, which say the drug regimen must be “prespecified” before the trial begins or results are collected.

But the Food and Drug Administration allowed the test to change. Then, in June 2022, he authorized the Pfizer vaccine for these children “as a three-dose primary series.” The CDC agrees that the three-dose regimen is the standard.

The FDA’s clearance triggered a massive government campaign, enthusiastically pushed by the elite media and the main lobbying group for pediatricians, to push the shots.


But within weeks, it was clear that the parents had overwhelmingly rejected the beatings, even in blue states. At the time, vaccine advocates said they expected young children to receive the shots at standard pediatric visits well into the fall of 2022, but uptake remained dismal.

Still, the CDC hasn’t stopped pushing shots for young children. He did it again last week, recommending for all children six months and older, as well as all adults, are getting a Covid boost this fall. On its website, the CDC claims shots are safe and “prevent children from becoming seriously ill if they have COVID-19.

That’s the theory that the new study was designed to examine, using a model called a test-negative design.

Researchers checked records of 177,000 emergency department, urgent care and outpatient medical visits in Southern California for young children with respiratory infections from July 2022 to May 2023. The visits included 24,000 in which tests were done for Covid, with 2,300 positive results.

(If stories like this matter to you for twenty cents a day…)

In other words, Covid accounted for barely 1 percent all 177,000 visits for respiratory infections. Not surprising, as Covid is generally very mild in young children.

But within the group of children who were tested and found to have Covid, children who had received three mRNA injections were just as likely to have Covid as a reason for their visit as those who had none.

So three shots did nothing to prevent young children from needing medical attention for Covid.

What will it take for CDC to admit defeat?
