Mandates for kids ahead? Pediatricians being advised to prepare to vaccinate ages 5-11 for Covid

The American Academy of Pediatricians is advising its members that they will be able to vaccinate children ages 5-11 for Covid soon, and it’s time for them get get prepared.

According to the doctors’ trade group, pediatricians will not use the Comirnaty vaccine vials that are approved for use on adolescents and adults.

Younger children will get a different Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and will be receiving 10 micrograms of the substance that evidently to helps ward off the Covid-19 virus.

The group says pediatricians will be able to order the pediatric version soon and will know next week the timeline for their particular state.

“We really think vaccinating in the medical home is going to be the best way to get this age group vaccinated,” Amanda Cohn, M.D., FAAP, deputy incidence manager for vaccines for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Covid-19 emergency response, said in a call with AAP leaders Wednesday, as reported by “This includes pediatric clinics, federally qualified health centers, rural health centers.”

The vaccine advisory committee of the Food and Drug Administration will meet on Oct. 26 to discuss and advise on emergency use authorization (EUA) of the vaccine for children, and a decision by FDA acting commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock is expected to follow.

If authorized, states and territories could immediately begin ordering and vaccines, and they will be delivered to thousands of sites on a pro-rata basis, the organization reports.

But for pediatricians to actually administer the vaccine to children takes a separate decision by the CDC’s vaccine committee, which meets Nov. 2-3.

According to the group, during the first week after FDA authorization, the minimum pediatric vaccine order will be 300 doses, which will then drop to 100 doses in subsequent weeks.

“The pediatric vaccines will have an orange cap and label to distinguish them from the adolescent/adult formulation,” the group said. “The pediatric vaccines will require diluent that will be provided with other supplies for use in children. The vaccines can be stored for 10 weeks in a refrigerator at 2-8 degrees Celsius.”

More than 6 million children have tested positive for COVID-19, according to the AAP. In the week ending Oct. 7, there were more than 148,000 new pediatric cases and children made up about one quarter of all new cases.

Meanwhile, the doctors’ association reports that about 46% of 12- to 17-year-olds in the U.S. are fully and the number being vaccinated each week is declining. The AAP is encouraging pediatricians to pressure parents and guardians into getting their children vaccinated.

“We know from all of our research … that a person’s health care provider, pediatricians, are a parent’s most trusted source of health care information,” Dr. Cohn said in the AAP story. “And a strong recommendation by a pediatrician for their child to get a COVID vaccine is directly related to uptake in that person.”

Whether students will eventually be mandated to show proof of a Covid vaccine to attend school is not at all certain. A year ago, governments promised there would be no mandate for adults, but President Joe Biden has since declared that all federal workers, contractors and employers of over 100 workers must either require a shot of all workers or test them weekly for Covid, at the businesses’ own expense. OSHA has been issuing regulations to support Biden’s mandate. Local schools in Alaska have mandated shots for their staff members and even the University of Alaska Anchorage is mandating the shots for any student who is living on campus.

The pediatricians group has not said whether it thinks there should be mandates for children to get the vaccine, but this past week in Anchorage, the local AAP chapter came out strongly in favor of masking children and adults in the city, saying that masks slow down the spread of Covid and that those who oppose mandating them are anti-science.

  1. Studies on vaccinating kids that young have not even been completed. Pediatric Association is full of sh*t

  2. Except for U.S. Postal employees numbering about 600,000 that Not-President Biden is exempting. If the vaccine is so important, why are U.S. Postal employees exempt? Hmm? The leftists are completely out of their minds.

    • I’m not sure why. It may be because they’re becoming so insignificant, they always happen to raise their postal prices cuz they can’t make themselves pay. I go down to my mailbox once a week just to clean out the trash. All of my mail comes online anymore and packages get delivered at my doorstep from the brown truck. I think they’re kind of useless and not needed but that’s a different discussion. I don’t know why they’re exempt other than Biden might be afraid of their Union.

  3. If you think that students will eventually be mandated to show proof of a Covid vaccine to attend school, you’re obviously a Conspiracy Theorist.

  4. Yes, some children get COVID. But barring dangerous comorbidities it is a cold. More will die from the vaccine than the disease, and this is not counting long-term ill health effects.

  5. this proves it’s about profits and not about the welfare of our children.
    Many countries in the EU have banned the jab on people under 30 years old, let that sink in.

  6. This is flat out child abuse. Why would anyone experiment on their children? Does fear and trust in the government outweigh love and common sense? I guess we’ll find out. And I don’t believe I will ever trust the medical profession again.

  7. The crimes against humanity are accelerating in pace. Doctors need to turn off their computers that spoon feed them propaganda faster than they can swallow it. Its bad enough that all of the more recent ones were herded through the big pharma education corral and innoculated with a finely tuned indoctrination. Critical thinking is in short supply these days as a habitual quick reference to whatever the hell information system program it is that the medical industry has supplied to inform and advise doctors has turned many of them into nothing more than automatons.

    We are in bad place, and its getting worse.

    • “Tell me…
      Over and
      Over and
      Over and
      Over again my friends —
      You don’t believe we’re on the
      Eve of Destruction”

      NORTH– the last time I heard ANYONE carry on the way you do he was singing the above song on the radio — referencing war in Vietnam, poor little Black girls blown to bits while in church because their parents wanted Civil Rights.
      Then there’s you: pissing and moaning about the “crimes against humanity” of vaccines.

      If we’re on the Eve of Destruction, you and the rest of your antivax/anti-mask domestic terrorist American democracy arsonist Komraden are swinging the flaming wrecking ball.

      • SOPHIE – Your communist screed is transparent Projection 101. Perhaps you just picked this ‘skill’ up over time, or maybe you were trained in the dark arts and gain financial remuneration from spewing this baloney. Either way, you suck at it.

        You show up with your feeble minded Medical Fraud Denier crap, cheerleading for communism, thinking that is respectable. Its not.

        Clearly you find censorship valuable, as you are unhesitant to demean those who take exception to it. Besides the obvious potential harms from the “vaccine”, perhaps you should look into:
        – Antibody Dependent Enhancement
        – Accelerated Viral Evolution
        – Viral Immune Escape
        Hopefully you clinical trial goes well…

  8. Someone needs to stop this insanity now. Gov where are you. No mandatory vaccines that are not vaccines but emergency use and still do not work. and the heck these mask laws They don’t work. Look up the UK the vaccinated are 100% higher with china flu than unvaccinated. God almighty stop this abuse.

  9. Immunization records for entering a public federal controlled school?! Paid by tax paying dollars??(thoughts to ponder)
    Mumps, measles,etc (where, what, when, how, &why) ?

    We the new jab junkies of vaccines and boosters! Feeding the pharmaceutical! Companies!

    No better then a a jab off the street!

  10. Death rates for Covid-19 by age according to CDC:
    0-4 is .003
    5-9 is .001
    10-14 is .001
    15-19 is .002
    Should make people really wonder why the vaccine is being mandated. It certainly isn’t about keeping people alive.

  11. “”

  12. So what happens if the FDA doesn’t grant approval? Do the Docs tell the parents to blame the bureaucrats? What if it is only emergency approval? What do the Docs do if the “experts” dig in on their non-approval? What if Dr. Fauci comes up with an altogether different spin? It seems to me that the pediatricians are getting ahead of themselves. And the pandemic is causing a lot of people to behave like fools.

  13. “We really think vaccinating in the medical home is going to be the best way to get this age group vaccinated,”

    What the h-e-double-hockey-sticks does this mean? Where on earth did the term” “the medical home” come from?

  14. Your body? (not owned by government ?)
    Your choice? On your medical?
    It shouldn’t be their dictatorship??

    Why pay for medical insurance? If they don’t give you choices or options?

    Seems! Medical corporations!
    Know all! And tell you!!!???

    And still get paid??

    By government dollars?

  15. This is insane!!! Why are we pushing a vaccine for kids that have a 99.999% survival rate? Why are we pushing a vaccine on kids that has ZERO real short term testing, ZERO mid term testing and ZERO long term testing. 513 kids have died from covid, why would we even consider any kind of vaccine let alone an experimental one!

  16. This policy of vaxing children will awaken many parents up even if they are vaxed themselves. They will not be willing to subject their children to being vaxed with an experimental drug to treat a malady that has a 99.94%+ recovery rate.

    Mark my words, this policy will be the policy that will create supernova heat among parents. At the same time the science is increasingly screaming against it. It will show our government health leaders are corrupt and causing great harm.

  17. Child endangerment for profit 101. Since when is there such a thing as “The” science? There’s science, which is a tool or methodology used to find fact or verify theory. There is no “the” to it. It is not finite. Science is always to be questioned, tested for repeatability and is always prone to abuse by a profit agenda. Remember when we ran behind the trucks spraying DDT for mosquito control as kids? Remember when “More doctors recommend Pall Mall cigarettes?” The Tuskegee Experiments? Agent Orange, Small Pox infested blankets for Native Americans? Swine Flu vaccine debacle of 1976? Gulf War Syndrome? To name just a few government-driven “ conspiracy theories” foisted on a trusting citizenry? Trust not.

  18. Time for Sara Palin’s mama grizzly meme, yes?
    Seems reasonable to ask cui bono; who in Anchorage’s pediatric industry might benefit from questionable (–but not prosecutable under DHSS’s temporary Covid anti kickback rule–) financial coziness with the pharmaceutical industry.
    Then we remember the Peoples Five Anchorage Pediatricians who endorsed the masking of schoolchildren, especially minorities and orphans, and hysterically demanded Anchorage’s “Top Doc” do the same.
    Are these two dots just begging to be connected? Who wants to be first in line, gambling their child’s life to find out?
    If valid concerns exist about safety and efficacy of vaccinating people who have Covid immunity because of prior exposure, recent vaccination, or –natural immunity–, why should parents allow vaccinations to be forced on children who, as a group, are known to have natural Covid immunity?
    Seems almost hypocritical, worrying about children, while living in a society obsessed with forcing Americans to pay for killing babies and selling the parts…

  19. Do not vax your children. Your child is their lab rat.
    Kissinger quote from speech to the WHO Council on Eugenics, Feb. 25, 2009.
    “Once the herd accepts mandatory vaccinations, it’s game over. They will accept anything – forcible blood or organ donation – ‘for the greater good’. We can genetically modify children and sterilize them – ‘for the greater good’. Control sheep minds and you control the herd. Vaccine makers stand to make billions. And many of you in this room are investors. It’s a big win-win. We thin out the herd and the herd pays us for extermination services.”
