Russia's freefall into public health barbarism
The Russian government will soon begin injecting children. Why?
Russia will begin injecting youngsters between the ages of 12-17 by the end of December, following the decision last month by the health ministry to give the greenlight to Sputnik-M—Russia’s COVID shot for kids.
Vaccinations for children will be carried out with parental consent for those under the age of 15. Anyone over 15 can provide their own “informed” and “voluntary” consent to getting the shot.
Sputnik-M is a crime against science and basic decency. It’s a completely untested drug that has no obvious upside. How many Russian children have died “from COVID”? (The Russian government won’t disclose this basic data. We wonder why.)
If this is being done for public health, is there is a clear public health benefit? There would need to be overwhelming and incontrovertible advantages to vaccinating children in order to offset the risk of long-term safety problems. Is this the case?
Senseless and unscientific
Dr. Denis Ivanov—a member of Russia’s Doctors for Truth—noted in an interview with Tsargrad that Sputnik-M’s far-from-thorough trials have not been “conducted properly” and that it’s still unclear how children will react to the drug:
So you understand that this is not even clinical research, but an experiment—consider it as with laboratories with animals… If you treat your children like animals you risk giving them to deadly experiments.
Ivanov also noted that it was nonsensical to use public funds to carry out these so-called “tests.”
His colleague, Dr. Vladislav Shafalinov, pointed to the fact that there’s no reason to vaccinate children against COVID:
This is really an experiment. And how can you give away children not only your own but also others'. I personally don't understand the experiment, especially since the children don't get sick.
And if they get sick, they don't die. I recently got acquainted with the German report that documented one dead child over the past year and then it is unknown whether the death was due to COVID or something else—likely something else.
Therefore, it makes no sense to vaccinate children so that they do not get sick. They say that children can be asymptomatic carriers. This is nonsense. Without symptoms the carrier cannot infect others, even representatives of the World Health Organization… said this six months ago.
Some parents who volunteered their children to be injected with Sputnik-M will be rewarded with a nice little wad of rubles.
This is really encouraging because it shows that the Russian government is seriously invested in ensuring the health and well being of the country’s youngsters.
There’s simply no better way to spend taxpayer rubles; providing financial incentives to parents who sign their kids up for an experimental drug that they don’t need is the surest way to guarantee public health.
For example—Russian children don’t need food, because now they have the vaccine:
The supervisory authority found out that meals were not organized in Vasilyevskaya and Pustoshenskaya schools since the beginning of the school year. In addition, there were no cooks on the staff of educational organizations, and no food was delivered. The department noted that in the documents on the acceptance of the school for the new academic year, information is recorded that meals are organized properly.
It’s sort of a nationwide trend. These whiny Russian kids—so unappreciative even though their kindly government is doing everything it can to keep them fit and healthy:
We’re not even exaggerating when we say that we see reports like this almost weekly. Hours ago we stumbled upon a story about students at a school district near Moscow being fed with leftovers from other children, in order to line the pockets of the local catering service. Everyone on Russian social media was like, “Yeah, but the vaccine…”
Oh, we forgot to mention that 26% of children in Russia live below the poverty line and that in February 2020, Russia’s health ministry disclosed that 400 inpatient medical care facilities across the country had no running water.
Meanwhile, the Russian government is doing this:
It’s for public health, kiddos. Okay?
