Important Facts about Children and Covid

January 14, 2022

  • Covid is NOT a threat to healthy children. [1]
  • Children are NOT a significant source of transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to others. [2]
  • Some children who have been injected with Covid vaccines have developed myocarditis (inflammation of the heart), some have had heart attacks and some have died. [3] 
  • For most children, the risks of Covid vaccination are likely to be higher than the risks of the disease. [4]
  • Doctors have warned that Covid shots pose unprecedented risks to children. [5] 
  • Overseas, where Covid vaccinations have been widely used in children, there has been a significant increase in the child death rate. [6]
  • In NZ, Medsafe has acknowledged receiving seven reports of death in young people aged from 10 – 29 after Covid shots. (One of these is a 13 year old child.) [7]
  • The Covid shot on the NZ market for injection into children is NOT fully approved by Medsafe; it has only “provisional consent” to be marketed in NZ, subject to a number of conditions.  [8]
  • A report raising concerns about quality control issues with the Pfizer Covid vaccine was published in the British Medical Journal in 2021.  Later in 2021, the British Medical Journal published a report about fraudulent practices in one of the Pfizer Covid shot clinical trial sites.  [9]
  • Studies have shown that low vitamin D levels may increase the risk of severe Covid-19.  Vitamin D is available free from sunshine or is available as an over the counter supplements (or high dose tablets are  available  on prescription in NZ). [10] 
  • Covid is a highly treatable infection.  There are prescription and non prescription medications that may be used to treat Covid-19 at its early stages to stop replication of the virus to reduce the risk of the illness progressing to the point where treatment in hospital may be required. 

(Information about these treatments may be found at the following links: and; this latter site has protocols for health professionals including early treatment information.)

The website of NZ Doctors Speaking Out with Science also has useful information for parents:

If you wou;d like to read the information for health professionals on the Covid shot that Pfizer is marketing for for 5 -11 year old children, the US version is available at this link: This datasheet shows that the paediatric formulation contains two ingredients that were not listed on the version of the Pfizer Covid shot that is marketed in NZ for people 12 years and up. These are tromethamine, and tromethamine hydrochloride.

(Medsafe usually has datasheets for vaccines that are marketed in NZ on its website but I was not able to find the datasheet for the paediatric version of Comirnaty.)



[1] Information from studies conducted overseas (where Covid case numbers have been far higher than they have been in NZ) shows that for usually healthy children, the risk of death from Covid-19 is negligible. 

According to a report in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, despite Swedish schools and preschools remaining open in 2020 – no children died from Covid and very few children became seriously ill. Children were encouraged to socially distance in school but they did not have to wear masks. (Very few teachers in Sweden  became seriously ill, either, with the rate of admission to intensive care among teachers being lower than 2 in 5000 teachers despite the Covid vaccination programme not having yet begun in Sweden at over the time period covered by the study.)

A new study from Germany has found similar results.  Not one healthy child in Germany died from Covid in the first 15 months of the pandemic and serious illness in usually healthy children was also very rare. (For a healthy child aged 5 – 11 the risk of intensive care admission was about 1 in 50,000; for healthy children aged 12 -18 and those under 4 years the risk of needing treatment in intensive care was about 1 in 8,000.)  A total of 14 children under 18 in Germany died from Covid over the study period; there are approximately 10 million under 18 years old in Germany.


[3] A tragic case of a three year old girl dying after a Covid shot may be read at this link: t (She received a different brand of vaccine from what is on the market in NZ.)

This links discusses myocarditis in primary school age children who had received Covid shots:

A US nurse recently spoke out about her experience of caring for patients suffering from adverse events after Covid vaccination and warned that expanding the use of these shots to children will put young lives at risk.  

NB:  For boys in the 12 – 17 year old age group, the risk of myocarditis after a second dose of an mRNA is higher than the risk of being hospitalised with Covid-19.

A top cardiologist recently warned that vaccine induced myocarditis is a serious condition:

An overview of Covid, Covid vaccines and children may be found at this link:

A lawsuit is being prepared against the FDA in relation to the agency’s decision to give an “emergency use authorisation” to the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine for children aged 5 – 11 years   because of the risks to most children from Covid are so low and the vaccine can be expected to kill some children in this age group based on the use of the vaccine in children aged 12 years and older.


It has been estimated that the vaccination programme for children aged 5 -11 years  currently in progress in  the USA could “kill 5,248 children via Pfizer mRNA shots in order to save 45 children from dying of coronavirus” (See: )

[6]   (This is shockingly similar to a recently reported 40% increase in the life insurance claims for working age adults (aged 18 – 64 years) in the US Indiana which began after the Covid vaccine roll out there: )

[7] (NB:  In an “average” year in NZ Medsafe receives about 2-3 reports of death following vaccination from all vaccines on the NZ market combined.  As of December 2021, Medasfe had received a total 133 reports of death following Covid-19 shots despite these jabs being on the market for less than one year at that point.) The disclosure of the death of the 13 year old NZ child may be found at this link:


In the United States the Pfizer-BioNTech shot that is being marketed for children aged 5- 11  does not have full approval by the FDA but has been allowed to be marketed on the basis of an Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA).  (It has been alleged that that this decision was made by a committee in which the majority of people had ties to pharmaceutical companies. )

[9] The article in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) on the quality control concerns about the Pfizer Covid shot is here: ; see also 

This video gives additional information about quality control issues that have been identified with the Pfizer Covid shot. 

The website provides links by which it is possible to look up the numbers for different “lots” or “batches” of different manufacturers’ Covid shots.  It appears that different lots or batches of Covid shots (produced by the same manufacturer) can vary widely in toxicity, based on the number of reports about adverse reactions made in relation to different lots/batches.  Some lots/batches appear to be relatively safe while others appear to be much more toxic. This may account why some people do not suffer from any apparent side effects following a Covid shot while others become extremely ill or die. )
