This week, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense president, and Polly Tommey, co-producer of “Vaxxed,” covered the latest headlines on COVID-19, Big Pharma and other issues, including news that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Pfizer booster for children ages 5-11.

Polly and Mary also discussed an FDA official’s statement that COVID-19 vaccines for kids under 6 will not have to meet the agency’s 50% efficacy threshold required to obtain Emergency Use Authorization.

Plus, the new Biden administration’s COVID-19 projection puzzled experts, and the White House admitted it lied about vaccines.

Also on tap this week: 500,000 Germans have been severely injured by COVID-19 vaccines.

More of this week’s highlights:
  • Doctors say pandemic side effects are not going away anytime soon. “This is a propaganda piece,” said Mary.
  • Bill Gates and the Victorian Chief Health Officer in Australia tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Doctors found unusual types and numbers of cancer following COVID-19 vaccines.
  • A new approach to vaccination: 3D printed patches.
  • The EU and U.K. joined the U.S. in launching “disinformation” social media regulations. “I highly recommend you read this,” said Polly.
  • A bill allowing teens to get vaccinated without parental consent passed the California State Senate. “Disturbing,” said Polly. “This is bad news.”
  • The National Institutes of Health is launching an early-stage clinical trial to evaluate a potential vaccine for Epstein-Barr virus.
  • The World Health Organization is drafting a global treaty on pandemic preparedness that would grant the agency absolute power over global biosecurity. “This is a great article,” said Mary.
  • The White House will reopen Abbott Nutrition’s infant formula plant in a bid to ease widespread shortages, but the move won’t address the underlying industry monopoly issue. “Very troubling,” said Mary. “Incredibly distressing.”
  • Electromagnetic field exposure in pregnant women is associated with a shorter pregnancy, increased fetal heart rate variability and temperature, and babies born with smaller head and chest circumferences.
  • The U.S. government pays hospitals a 20% upcharge, plus an additional bonus, for using the remdesivir protocol. “This is so shocking,” said Mary.
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) asked Amazon to stop carrying “The Truth About COVID-19: Exposing the Great Reset, Lockdowns, Vaccine Passports, and the New Normal,” a book featuring a foreword by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
  • Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and others will protest social media censorship at a May 19 rally in Menlo Park, California, two days after Kennedy delivers arguments in Children’s Health Defense’s lawsuit against Facebook. “We are very hopeful,” said Mary. “We invite people to go to this protest.”
