Medsafe approves Pfizer mRNA jab for at risk children under 5 years old

Medsafe news

It is anticipated that the ‘vaccine’ will be available in February 2023.

Following provisional approval by Medsafe, the Director-General of Health has recommended, and Ministers have approved, the use of the paediatric Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children aged six months to four years who are at higher risk of severe disease if they were to catch COVID-19.

The move from Medsafe comes as top world medical experts call for the immediate cessation of mRNA vaccine use.

Eligibility will be limited to children who are severely immunocompromised, or who have complex and/or multiple health conditions which increase the risk of severe disease from COVID-19 (following the Starship Child Health table of underlying comorbidities). This eligibility is based on advice from the COVID-19 Vaccine Technical Advisory Group (CV-TAG).

The vaccine for this age group is an adapted version of the vaccine used for five to 11 olds. The provisional approval is for three doses, with the second dose given three weeks after the first dose, followed by a third dose given at least 8 weeks after the second dose.

CV-TAG does not currently recommend vaccination for children aged 6 months to 4 years who are not in these risk categories for severe COVID-19. These children have a very low likelihood of severe illness from COVID-19.

“We continue to review the latest evidence from overseas to ensure our vaccination programme is based on the most up-to-date research and real-world experience,” said Dr Andrew Old, Deputy Director-General and head of the Public Health Agency.

“While most children under 5 do not currently need COVID-19 vaccination, the advice from CV-TAG was clear that a smaller subset of children are at higher risk should they catch the disease, and that this vaccine will assist them,” said Dr Old.

A further announcement will be made in early 2023 when timing of vaccine delivery is confirmed.

  1. Barely two weeks after they set the precedent for confiscating our babies if THEY deem it beneficial.

    Tell me again why I’m wrong for wanting to take my kids and bail on NZ.

    • “Unquaccinated Please don’t go”was my comment to you under another headline. I have followed your comments on dtnz from the start. I have read how much you love your wife and children. Your pride, passion and protectiveness shines through when you talk about them. You are their shield and strength. You have strengthened us to, as I hope we have for you on occasion. I cannot tell you that you are wrong to take your family out of nz, nobody can. But what I do know is that whatever you decide, it will have been well thought out and agonised over, and ultimately the best choice for all of you 🙏

      • Much appreciated friend 🙏

        I’m just a guy who got sick and tired of listening to dumb people say stupid things using big words.

        Dream come true finding this site during the scamdemic and realising I’m not actually alone, there are people like yourself and others who are in the same boat as me; awake but surrounded by woke 🤦🏼

        I just want to be left alone. And I want my kids to be left alone. But apparently in 2022 that’s asking too much.

        • You are an unvaccinated guy! That makes a difference in today’s world. Your mind isn’t damaged, it is clear and plain for you to see what others can’t. We can’t think for one minute that we aren’t making a difference in our own small ways. But the time is coming when we need to focus on our loved ones and leave the others behind. We can say hand on heart we tried. I hear you, it’s frustrating when they don’t see what we see and I guess that will be between them and the lord when all said and done. You were born for such a time as this, and you will lead your family through whether in nz or somewhere else of this I am confident 🙏

    • That WEF puppet that some people have the audacity to call a PM is trying to impress her future masters – employer with the most repressive evil audacious medical tyranny of all time of any country in the world. Guess what ? she has been crowned in number 1 spot. Its a matter of look over here while they are doing something over there. Wait til the day comes when you have to pay more for your water than petrol for your car. Jab sin das 3 Waters robbery plan will see to that. They are also weaponising ‘Climate change’ against the unsuspecting public to over charge with add on fees for everything consummerable. Make sure you have a plan B to stay healthy. Also to have airline tickets available and affordable before the Govt. crash all the businesses farming sector and wease every last dollar out of everybody. Good luck.

  2. “The move from Medsafe comes as top world medical experts call for the immediate cessation of mRNA vaccine use.”
    Dr Sarfati who is currently the Acting Director-General of Health and Chief Executive, Ministry for Health, would surely be aware of this call for the cessation, and so should the ministers concerned. If they still approve the use they must be completely insane., or wilfully ignorant.

  3. At risk..!?
    Good Lord they are putting them at risk. These jerks are not worthy of the name Medsafe and must immediately change it to something more fitting. Several come to mind but let’s go with Medchumps or Extermination Inc.

  4. They won’t be stopped! So parents it’s up to you. DO NOT INJECT YOUR BABIES EVER! Don’t let them within a mile of your beautiful babies. Grandparents tell your children to tell their children and don’t let them near these precious ones. Their lives depend on it.

  5. CV TAG= Covert ID tag…so now there will be a huge push to diagnose babies as immunocompromised so they can be tagged as well…if crystalline structures are formed in the vaccine on exposure to a charge field, or EMF, that’s a tag.

  6. Limited to only the immunodeficiency compromised kids, You just couldn’t make this stuff up! They are the last ones who should be getting vaccinated

    • it is world wide genocide. They just want to get rid of the old and disable. It cost too much you see. Governments and insurance companies dont want to pay for them.
      Money !!

  7. If they are only giving them to at risk children why did the force them on healthy adults? Will that be a topic in their review?

  8. There have been so many reports of under 5 yr Olds affected by the coof, tragic. Thankfully NZ has a competent team of medical experts and statisticians to inform Medsafe. Medsafe can then make a thoroughly science backed decision to allow this well researched safe and effective “vaccine” for under 5’s. Lucky the thoroughly researched data to date has been compiled into clear and comprehensive documents for parents to make a fair and well informed decision. But of course said horse there is nothing to see here

    • Yep, thoroughly researched is what it is. Compiled, clear and comprehensive documents too.

      An inquiry into Medsafe will be a reality at some point in the future. And, hopefully inquiries into all the leading people there.

      Medsafe the oxymoron. How many kids were in those trials Medsafe?
