Looking back through this report, it is clear that there are too many warning signals to ignore. Each individual signal may present a particular level of uncertainty, but when all the signals are considered together, the alert is deafening and must not be ignored. We must halt the vaccination of our children, adolescents, and young adults of child-bearing age. This can be done safely and expeditiously because:
• The risk of severe and potentially lethal COVID-19 in these specific populations is so low that we need to be very certain that risks associated with mass vaccination are not higher;
• Asymptomatic members of this population are not a substantial risk for passing COVID-19 to others; and
• There are effective early-treatment strategies and considerations for the very few children, adolescents, and young adults of child-bearing age who may be at risk of developing severe COVID-19.
Our younger generations of Canadians are our treasures and our future. Let’s not put their futures at unnecessary risk by forcing upon them experimental vaccines that present newly identified and still-to-be-clarified dangers. Proof-of-principle now exists to demonstrate the current crop of vaccines may be dangerous. This risk, no matter how theoretical, must be further investigated and all concerns put to rest prior to the vaccination of our youth. It’s time to sort out the science and reduce the pressures on parents and their children so they can make truly informed decisions. It is time to pass the torch from the pharmaceutical companies and hand it to the leaders and innovators among our community of physicians and researchers who have the skills, knowledge and experience to optimize excellent treatment strategies encompassing repurposed drugs that can be deployed to reduce the future casualties of this war against COVID19.
