Omicron is a deadly virus. Former UFC star 41 y.o. Chris "The Crippler" Leben from San Diego CA is recovering from COVID after being on life support. He declined to talk about his vaccination status. This was his second battle with COVID #TheySurvivedCovid…
“I was ready to tap out, and the reason I didn’t tap is because of my child … If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have had the fight to get through those days,” said Leben.
There is a disinformation campaign that young people are not affected by COVID-19 and that #Omicron is mild. These are both incorrect. Vaccination against COVID-19 protects against severe disease.

Wann gibt es endlich die jetzt schon viel zu späte allgemeine Impfempfehlung für U12 von der #STIKO? Vermutlich erst, wenn jemand Mertens und die anderen Anthrosophen da rausgemobbt hat. Die Sicherheitsdaten liegen rum und werden offenbar vorsätzlich ignoriert.

Danke für nichts.
Bei der STIKO steht immer noch, dass es keinen COVID-19 bedingten Todesfall in der Altersgruppe gegeben habe und der Einfluss der Impfung auf Übertragungen gering sei.

Das ist so 2020. Impfempfehlung der STIKO für Kinder im Alter von 5-11 Jahre
LongCovid und PIMS sind ebenso Fakt wie die im Gleichschritt ansteigenden Fallzahlen bei Kindern und ihren Eltern sowie die wegen der fehlenden Immunisierung steigenden Hospitalisierungen von Kindern.

Children infected with COVID-19 are at higher risk of developing diabetes.
