WHO: Healthy kids and teens no longer need COVID vaccine




The World Health Organization updated their Covid-19 vaccine guidance on, Tuesday, stating that healthy children and teenagers don’t need the vaccine. It was in direct contrast to the agency’s previous recommendations and coincides with many parents who argued against given the emergency use vaccine to their children.

COVID Vaccine

The WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) met a week prior to announcing their revised guidance on the vaccine to pave out a roadmap that prioritizes who needs the vaccine. The roadmap has three different groups of priority for obtaining the vaccine, high priority, medium priority and low priority. High priority being those who are at a severe risk of disease and death in the case that they contracted Covid-19. Below are the statistics on the development of myocarditis in children after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine, according to the CDC.

  • 5-11 years: 23 verified reports of myocarditis after 23,376,785 doses administered
  • 12-15 years: 376 verified reports of myocarditis after 25,913,772 doses administered
  • 16-17 years: 316 verified reports of myocarditis after 14,180,263 doses administered

“Updated to reflect that much of the population is either vaccinated or previously infected with COVID-19, or both, the revised roadmap reemphasizes the importance of vaccinating those still at-risk of severe disease, mostly older adults and those with underlying conditions, including with additional boosters,” stated SAGE Chair Dr. Hanna Nohynek in a press release on the WHO website, according to Fox News.

In contrast to what the American public has been told for the past 3 years, SAGE now only recommends the full vaccine series and one booster dose for healthy adults age 60 and under but does no additional boosters are recommended, according to reports.

Furthermore, Dr. Hanna Nohynek added, “countries should consider their specific context in deciding whether to continue vaccinating low-risk groups, like healthy children and adolescents, while not compromising the routine vaccines that are so crucial for the health and well-being of this age group.”

Children Covid

The WHO does recommend that children with underlying health conditions and who are at risk of developing severe conditions when infected with Covid-19 continue to get vaccinated. It is also still recommended that infants under the age of 6 months and pregnant women should receive the vaccine.

Electric Vehicle company with Chinese ties awarded $500 million of taxpayer money for 2nd U.S. plant

With a little help from their Democrat friends, a Chinese electric vehicle (EV) battery company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party just announced the opening of its second plant in the United States.

Fox News reports Gotion Inc., whose parent company Gotion High-Tech is based in Hefei, China, unveiled plans to build a $2 billion lithium battery plant in Manteno, Illinois, alongside Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who cheered the project.

The announcement comes amid growing opposition to the company’s plans to build a billion-dollar factory in Mecosta County, Michigan.

In order to make the expansion happen, lobbyists for the Chinese Communist Party-tied electric vehicle company funneled cash to Democrats. “Individuals at a law firm registered as foreign agents to lobby on behalf of Gotion, a Chinese electric vehicle battery company developing a controversial project in Michigan, and wired campaign contributions to several top Democrats” reports Fox News.

“According to state and federal filings, Monique Field-Foster, an attorney at the Lansing office of the Warner Norcross + Judd law firm who is acting as a foreign agent on behalf of Gotion, donated to the campaigns of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Whitmer’s sister Liz Gereghty and Michigan Democratic Senate hopeful Rep. Elissa Slotkin” the Fox News report continued.

“In partnership with the business community and the General Assembly, two years ago we set out to make Illinois a destination for electric vehicle and clean energy companies from across the globe,” Pritzker said in a statement.

“With the right incentives, nation-leading infrastructure, world-class workforce and booming clean energy production, we have transformed ourselves into an attractive location for global manufacturers. Today, we take another leap forward. It’s my pleasure to welcome Gotion to Illinois and to show the world yet again that Illinois is ready to be a player on the world stage.”

Pritzker delivered remarks late last week thanking Gotion for choosing Illinois to call “home” in a ceremony with leaders from Gotion High-Tech, including Li Zhen, the company’s chairman and president, who said he expected the factory to open in less than 12 months.

“All that we see here [in Illinois] are of enormous value to us: an enabling business environment, a supportive state government for the new energy industry and their highly efficient work, as well as the prospects of the State of Illinois in the coming years,” the Gotion president added. “We believe that Gotion’s battery technology will help to boost e-mobility in North America and the economic and trade exchanges between China and the U.S.”
