    Default Sweden Won't Recommend Vaccinating Children Under 12 Due To Lack Of 'Clear Benefit'

    'Last week, the World Health Organization's chief scientist admitted that there's no evidence that healthy children need booster doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.

    Now, the Swedish government has declined to recommend the vaccine for children under the age of 12 after concluding that there would be little medical benefit.

    In a Thursday press release, Sweden's Public Health Agency said that the medical benefit of the vaccine for those aged 5-11 years-old is "currently small," and that while the benefits are "constantly" under assessment, they will have decided against a general recommendation for children under the age of 12 for spring 2022, according to Reuters.

    "With the knowledge we have today, with a low risk for serious disease for kids, we don't see any clear benefit with vaccinating them," said Health Agency official Britta Bjorkholm during a news conference.

    The agency's Director General, Karin Tegmark, said that guidance would be once again updated before the fall term.

    "A general vaccination from the age of 5 is also not expected to have any major effect on the spread of infection at present, neither in the group of children aged 5–11 nor among other groups in the population," reads the press release.'

    Yet again, Sweden steps up to be one of the few countries in the entire world that act like adults on Covid-19.
    And does not panic because the MSM/other governments tell them to.

    I think the vaccines are a good idea for seniors/those with serious comorbidities.
    I have my jabs because I have minor asthma.
    But forcing children to get them when they have virtually no chance of dying of Covid is just ridiculous.

    Here's to Sweden...

    I disagree.

    There is social benefit in getting as many people vaccinated as possible, regardless of their own personal risk of dying of COVID.

    Vaccinated people are less likely to contract the disease and then subsequently transmit it to others.

    Cuba has vaccinated over 90% of their population and Cuba has half the death rate of Sweden.

    boom.

    More vaccinations = shutting off more avenues for the disease to travel.

    Fewer vaccinations = letting the disease run wild.

    You don’t get a vote in Sweden’s decision making.

    If you like Cuba so much, move to the “worker’s paradise” where the average monthly wage is appx. 46 dollars per month.

    Average Wages in Cuba increased to 1194 CUP/Month (46.369 USD/Month) in 2020.
