Pfizer Pharmaceuticals is a giant multinational company headquartered in New York City. It’s the 64th richest corporation in the US and is worth around $50 billion.
In addition to medical research, Pfizer makes medications and vaccines for everything from heart problems and neurological issues to depression and viruses.
It’s now in the process of testing the Pfizer-BionTech COVID-19 vaccine on kids and babies, ranging in age from 6-months-old to 11-years-old.
The reasoning is that public health officials say that elusive “herd immunity” won’t come until kids are all vaccinated too.
Once Pfizer can get the clearance to start giving small kids the shot then supposedly we will all reach that golden era of “herd immunity” until the next virus comes along and shuts down the whole economy.
Testing on Babies Has Already Begun
The first shots on test “participants” have already been given out, with 144 babies and kids set to get the vaccine in the first phase of testing.
It’s unclear how infants can consent to a vaccine, so obviously their parents are legally consenting on their behalf and waiving any potential negative side effects or long-term issues that could be caused by the vaccine.
The main thing that Pfizer is trying to find out in their testing is how big of a dose to give kids and babies who are 6-months to 2 years old, for the bracket between 2 and 5 and for the age range between 5 to 11.
They’re getting miniature doses in the testing that slowly increase as the company studies their reactions and works out how much of the dose will be effective.
For adults the dose is two shots of 30 micrograms, but for kids it will likely be lower.
JUST IN: Pfizer begins vaccine trial in children ages 5-11
Researchers at Duke University have begun testing Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine in children under the age of 12, the company told CNN Thursday. At least two children have already received the first shot.

Is the Vaccine Safe?
Numerous people have died from the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine, so it’s worth asking just how safe the Pfizer-BionTech vaccine is. According to Pfizer everything is just peachy and nobody should worry in the slightest about them jabbing babies.
“Pfizer has deep experience in advancing clinical trials of vaccines in children and infants and is committed to improving the health and well-being of children through thoughtfully designed clinical trials,” the company announced.
The Pfizer vaccine is already available to anybody over 16, but the studies on kids will show how it reacts with a child’s immune system which works differently. About 1 in 5 Americans are under 16, so experts say it’s vital to get everyone vaccinated before we can achieve herd immunity.
The other vaccine company Moderna also said it’s started testing on kids under 12, and Johnson & Johnson is testing its one-shot vaccine on babies and newborns in the near future.
What a brave new world we live in.
Dr. Tony Fauci recently said that preteens and teens will be getting shots by the fall and young kids in elementary school can start getting jabbed by early in 2022. Pfizer has also said it’s working on a pill to cure COVID if you take it right after noticing the first symptoms, so we’ll be following that story with interest as testing takes places.
The news of Pfizer and other vaccine giants testing on babies is nonetheless worrisome. The problem is that these giant corporations have such powerful teams of lawyers and liability waivers that no matter what happens they’ll never be on the hook.
This creates a blank check scenario that puts medical research above the good of its participants, especially when an infant is being tested and couldn’t even consent to being jabbed in the first place.
Also, with all the times Fauci has changed what he says, why should we believe him that herd immunity will come if we vaccinate kids and babies?
