Sweden to stop offering COVID-19 jabs to teenagers
Channel News Asia ^

Posted on 09/30/2022 7:23:04 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Sweden's Public Health Agency said on Friday (Sep 30) it was no longer recommending that children aged 12 to 17 get vaccinated against COVID-19, citing the "very low risk" for the group.

The new recommendation will come into force on October 31.

"The decision means that as of Nov 1, 2022 only children in certain vulnerable groups are recommended to get and thereby offered vaccinations against COVID-19," the agency said.

Little late....Better than never I guess. Too many young folks, have already been jabbed with an investigative vaccine that leaves them with ONLY risk.

Meanwhile, my local grocery store is playing an ad reminding you to get your jab and if you’ve already got that, and your first round of boosters, get your new omicron booster. Quickly stop by the pharmacy to schedule that as soon as possible. Of course, it is sponsored by Pfizer.

My Grandson was injected. Breaks my heart. He’s only 14. Healthy kid. Absolutely no reason at all.

it’s more than strange that China has not used any mRNA vaccines, considering its involvement with trials etc.

strange that - despite FakenNewsMSM farcical attempts to hype “covid outbreaks” in China - Statista lists China as #152 of 154 countries in deaths per million.
(btw even if China’s reporting on covid is not to be trusted, I doubt it would make much difference to its place near the bottom for covid deaths per million).

finally, they have approval for one of their own mRNA jabs, but not for the Chinese!

30 Sept: Reuters: A Chinese mRNA COVID vaccine is approved for the first time - in Indonesia
By Stanley Widianto and Roxanne Liu
(Reporting by Stanley Widianto in Jakarta and Roxanne Liu in Beijing; Editing by Miyoung Kim, Edwina Gibbs and Jonathan Oatis)
Indonesia said it has granted emergency use approval to an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine developed by a Chinese company, becoming the first country, ahead of even China, to do so.

Indonesia’s food and drugs agency (BPOM) greenlighted the use of Walvax Biotechnology Co Ltd’s mRNA vaccine, which has been in development for more than two years and targets the original strain of the coronavirus.

The approval comes as somewhat of a surprise as Walvax, which has been conducting large late-stage trials of the vaccine in several countries including Indonesia, Mexico and China, has yet to publish efficacy readings that would show how well it can reduce the risk of COVID cases and deaths.

Penny Lukito, head of the agency, told reporters the vaccine, now known as AWcorna, was 83.58% effective against wild-type coronavirus strains considered common and normal, though she added that its efficacy drops to 71.17% against moderate cases of the highly contagious Omicron variant.
She did not provide details of the data and did not respond to Reuters queries seeking further comment.
Walvax declined to comment. Share reaction for the Chinese company was muted, with the stock rising just 0.5%...

China has several mRNA candidates in development but the Walvax vaccine is the only candidate in large late-stage clinical trials.

Indonesia also uses mRNA COVID vaccines made by Pfizer Ltd and BioNTech SE (22UAy.DE) and by Moderna, but the AWcorna shot has a longer shelf life, remaining stable at 2 to 8 degrees Celsius (36 degrees to 46 degrees Fahrenheit) for at least six months, according to its researchers...

For its part, China has not approved any Western-made COVID shots and its approved vaccine portfolio does not yet include vaccines that specifically target the Omicron variant.

almost all the countries near the bottom of Statista’s deaths per million chart are countries which did not have mRNA jabs.

surely there’s a story here for a decent investigative journalist.

> “Overall we see that the need for care as a result of COVID-19 has been low among children and young people...”

But that’s what the conspiracy theorists were saying! Is Sweden’s Public Health Agency anti-science?

Grandson injected?

It is for the greater good. By neutering him and millions of other teens, the Bill Gates eugenics crowd is saving the Earth. So what that some of them die from heart attacks.

Bill Gates is smiling as population projections rapidly decrease.

Yes, he was. I don’t have any say so. I’m his Grandmother and if it were up to me, it would not happen to him.
