My worries about the upcoming vaccination for children

When I learned that children will be vaccinated for covid-19 in February, I was unsure whether or not I would consent my child to receive an injection. I'm concerned about the potential for complications after my child has been vaccinated. Last year, I received the first and second doses. Sinovac was my preferred vaccine, and I experienced no negative side effects on this one.

WHY DO SOME PARENTS HAVE DOUBTS ABOUT THE VACCINE

I believe it all began after the Philippines' Dengue outbreak when the Department of Health began to implement immunization programs for children. The Dengvaxia vaccination was the cause.

"In December 2017, nearly 2 years since the campaign started, Sanofi announced that Dengvaxia may actually cause ‘more severe disease’ in those who have not had previous dengue infection. By then, over 800,000 Filipino schoolchildren had been inoculated. Criminal investigations against involved government figures ensued, with one critic likening the mass vaccination programme to a ‘genocide against Filipino children’. The deaths of several children who had received the vaccine became a focal point of the scandal, as the Public Attorney’s Office ran a highly publicised and dramatised investigation, from televised autopsies to the chief lawyer appearing alongside the grieving mothers in media interviews. The resulting ‘crisis of confidence’ against the public health sector sent immunisation rates plummeting to an all-time low, precipitating a measles outbreak across the country, exacerbating already-low immunisation rates."

SOURCE

My son was only a few months old when many children died from Dengvaxia at the time. My parents also advised me to have my child shot a few times, and I'm glad I didn't. At the time, I believed my son was too young to receive significant doses of vaccination. When he was only a few months old and was given the 5in1 vaccine right away, I practically didn't get any sleep for a few nights due to his high temperature. I promised myself at the time that I would not allow him to have another vaccine because I was afraid that something terrible would happen.

And, given that the vaccine rollout for children began this February, I'm even more concerned that I'll be compelled to have my child injected again. Vaccines aren't even anything I despise. I used to be able to get any vaccine I wanted when I was younger. But now is a different era. I'm not sure if it's because of the fake news I watch or because there are so many evil individuals in the world. What if making vaccinations with major side effects is quite simple for them? What if this is their solution to reducing the world's population?

Again, I'm quite concerned about the vaccine's outcome in children. Isn't it too soon for them to develop a vaccine when the pandemic merely began in 2020?

I'm simply hoping that if they keep giving it to the kids, the leaders will be responsible for their distribution. It's a pity because we're talking about kids, not guinea pigs.

Another concern I have is for children with severely weakened immune systems. Consider how long the vaccine campaign will last for youngsters. It would be fine if children only had the flu, but what if it caused more significant side effects? Are we so certain that the government will step in to help all of those children if something bad happens?

Pag 7 pa Lang, wait mo na Lang announcement. Cuz based Lang din sa clinical trial age Yung pag push ko na magpavaccine Yung bunso namin. Wala pa talagang studies with children below 10. Flu vaccine siguro muna sya para may form of immunity sya. Or if need na Ng gov nyo, go for sinovac cuz that's self replicating so it's easier on a child's body compared to Pfizer and moderns (Yan Yung binibigay nila sa bata

'Yung sa Dengvaxia talaga, Ate eh. Di na talaga nakakalimutan 'to kasi laki ng damage na nangyari because of those shots.

Well, same concern. Sa amin is si sis na lang walang vaxx kasi nga 11 pa lang s'ya. Di pa namin napag-uusapan kung papa-vaccinan ba s'ya or hindi pero ayaw pa daw kasi nya. So, siguro we'll let her na muna total di naman pala-labas palagi. S'ya naman magsasabi kung gusto na n'ya eh, pero let's see pa din.

'Yung kay junakis mo naman, okay lang siguro na wag na muna? Kasi parang sa bahay lang naman talaga s'ya saka lalo na at may doubts ka pa.

Kung pwede lang ako magdecide eh kaso kinatatakot ko lang is baka ilimit din paglalabas ng mga bata which is mas nakakabahala. minor pa kasi yan 0 to 12 yrs old eh halos mahihina pa mga resistensya nyan. di natin alam ano mangyayare nyan dahil up to now madami nalabas na news about sa mga vaccines.

It's difficult these days to find trusting information not paid by some who have interests... but some information exists and if you have interest you find it but later we have to make our own decisions. In my opinion these vaccinations were created very fast without enough time... side effects are really high and some people are saying it's like a Russian roulette (and that's not very comforting) and even official news are constantly changing versions and facts. Another issue is that if something bad happens no one take any legal responsibility why?

our country is one of the most corrupt countries here in asia,. I don't think they wil help all the children that will suffer harsh side effects.. one thing I worry as well is that, why is it so easy for them to change facts

Oh corruption is everywhere, here possible our country is one of the most corrupt in Western Europe too... about why facts can be changed so easily: because mainstreaming, there is a lot of censure and big funds are owners of the almost all of them and they invest in many countries so they are using their investments to influence governmental decisions too...

Since I don't have children, I have no information in this regard, my friend. I always encourage adults to get vaccinated, but I don't know about children. But if I'm sure the vaccine is valid, I will probably do it. My cousin is in Turkey and he is 12 years old. He got the first doz of Pfizer vaccine a week ago, and because Pfizer seems to be a safe vaccine, their whole school was vaccinated...

Pfizer is one of the most promising vaccine but I really doubt if I will allow my child. I have second thougths because I am afraid something will go wrong once they start the rollout..
