Taiwan Halts 2nd Dose of Pfizer COVID-19 Jab for 12-17 Year Olds



While America plows full steam to vaccinate 5-year-olds, Taiwan has slammed the breaks on injecting minors with the COVID-19 jabs.

Citing the risk of myocarditis, Taiwan halted the 2nd dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 jab for 12-17-year-olds.

Statistics in the United States show the risk of youth developing myocarditis after the 2nd dose is 10x higher than the 1st dose.

Taiwan has taken notice of the alarming trend and adjusted its policy for vaccinating its youth.

The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) won’t consider giving COVID-19 jabs to children under 12 until they settle the 2nd dose issue.

Taiwan News reported:

Some countries have adjusted their policies regarding administering COVID-19 vaccines to adolescents. For instance, Hong Kong has changed from two doses of BNT to only a single dose for those aged 12-17. The U.K. has done something similar, recommending only one shot for children between 12 and 18 years of age, per CNA.

Chen said that the Ministry of Health and Welfare’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) has decided to halt administration of second BNT doses to this age group for two weeks, during which time experts and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) physicians will look at the 16 cases of myocarditis among adolescents after BNT vaccination before making a final decision on whether to go ahead with the second shot.

International data will also be consulted before the final decision is made, the CECC head said, adding that currently, children between the ages of 12-17 are being vaccinated with two doses worldwide except in Hong Kong and the U.K.

As for whether COVID-19 vaccines will be approved for children aged 5-11, Chen said the matter will not be considered until the second dose issue with 12 to 17-year-olds is settled.

While Taiwan is among few nations to raise concerns over the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 jab, other nations have halted usage of the Moderna COVID-19 jab.

Multiple Scandinavian nations banned Moderna for young people and Germany issued a dire warning about the mRNA jab this week.

The Pfizer COVID-19 jab is an mRNA injection like Moderna, so it should face similar scrutiny.

Taiwan officials recognized the risk of myocarditis and plans to investigate further.

On the other hand, the Biden Administration is relentless to inject 28 million 5-11-year-old American children with the Pfizer COVID-19 jab.

Zero Hedge added this important myocarditis tidbit:

Some scientists have suggested that young men are experiencing higher rates of Myocarditis post-vaccination due to testosterone, as well as the fact that Moderna’s vaccine uses a higher concentration of mRNA than Pfizer’s.

“I do think this hypothesis of testosterone is important,” said Burton. “We know that there is indeed some inflammation associated with testosterone. … We do have in the primary series, as you know, 100 micrograms of mRNA, so we have slightly higher levels of spike protein, and that could be a contributing factor as well.”

Remember folks, the vaccines currently being administered are still under emergency use, and if anything goes wrong you can’t sue.

With a 99.9973% survival rate from COVID-19, it makes zero sense to give children these injections.

It only puts them at risk for developing vaccine-induced myocarditis and other potential adverse reactions.
