Concerned medical freedom advocates will join Children’s Health Defense (CHD) tomorrow, Wednesday, June 23, at five vaccination sites around the country to protest plans to vaccinate underaged children as young as 12 without the consent of their parents.

Protesters will distribute vital information children and parents should have before they make potentially life-altering healthcare decisions. They also will urge children to forgo the COVID vaccine and any other vaccines until they and their parents have been fully informed of the risks and benefits associated with each vaccine.

The protests will take place at 11 a.m. local time at these five locations:

  • Seattle Children’s Hospital: 4800 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105
  • R.I.S.E. Demonstration Center: 2730 Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue, SE, Washington, DC 20032
  • Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia: 3401 Civic Center Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19104
  • Burton High School: 400 Mansell Street, San Francisco, CA 94134
  • Maspeth High School: 54-40 74th St., Elmhurst, NY 11373

CHD urges concerned parents to become involved to ensure their voices are heard.

In America, underaged children need parental consent to go to a suntan salon, attend a school field trip or be prescribed any medication. They can’t have a drink if they are under the age of 21.

Yet these long-held safety guidelines are being cast aside for the experimental COVID-19 vaccines which are still undergoing clinical trials, and carry the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s “Emergency Use Authorization” status only.

Circumventing parental consent is clearly an overreach on the part of federal, state and local health officials, said CHD Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who called on “all lawmakers and public health officials to stop the reckless vaccination of children who are not of age to consent.”

“Americans aren’t being fully informed when it comes to warp speed, liability-free COVID vaccines,” Kennedy said. “The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is receiving unprecedented numbers of reports of injuries and deaths following COVID vaccinations.”

As of June 11, the government-run VAERS database contained 352,386 reports of adverse events, including 5,993 deaths after COVID vaccines since mid-December, 2020.

Among the thousands of injuries and hundreds of deaths of young people after receiving a COVID vaccine are:

  • A College athlete who recovered from COVID but is now facing a “very different future” after he developed myocarditis after his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine

In addition to the dire cardiac implications, an estimated 8% of the U.S. population, including children, is at risk of having a potentially fatal anaphylactic shock to COVID-19 vaccines containing polyethylene glycol (PEG).

At the same time the CDC is scheduled to meet to discuss the known cardiac risks and heart inflammation affecting children and young adults following COVID-19 vaccination, the agency is participating in a concerted effort to coerce this same group to get the vaccine anyway.

The push to vaccinate children is inconsistent with the CDC’s data showing children are less likely to develop severe illness or die from COVID, and are more likely to be asymptomatic or show mild systems.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children comprise only 0.00%-0.23% of all COVID-19 deaths — and eight states reported zero child deaths. When children  do get the disease, they’ll likely have lifelong immunity.

As The Defender reported today, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends children under 18 “for the moment” not get the vaccine.

The COVID vaccine clinical trials for young adults and children will take a year or more to be finalized. Yet the CDC has already suggested the COVID vaccines can be given concurrently with other vaccines, even though the short- and long-term synergistic effects of administering multiple vaccines simultaneously are completely unknown.

If left unchallenged, health authorities will be using America’s children as guinea pigs for the vaccine, some of whom will suffer life-long injuries and even death.

In light of the high rate of reports of injuries following COVID vaccines, and the recent guidance by the WHO advising children under 18 not get the vaccine, CHD demands that CDC provide the reasoning behind its continued recommendation that children in the U.S. get the vaccine.

“We are at a defining crossroads in human history,” said CHD Executive Director Laura Bono. “The United States and the world are moving towards universal mandates of all vaccines for all children. Adding COVID mandates to the mix will prove deadly for some. The combination of high-powered vaccines such as meningitis and HPV along with COVID-19 carries the capacity to injure and even kill. We must act now.”
