Over the 18 months of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, data and studies worldwide concerning children and COVID-19 have shown the chances of contracting and spreading COVID-19 are minimal compared to the adult population. Some have warned that forcing children to take a minimally tested vaccine would have its consequences. Even the World Health Organization recommends a measured process and further study before mandating the vaccination of children:
While the WHO did conclude that the Pfizer vaccine is “suitable for use by people aged 12 years and above,” and that “children aged between 12 and 15 who are at high risk may be offered this vaccine alongside other priority groups for vaccination,” it also said more evidence is needed on the use of coronavirus vaccines in this population before making general recommendations.
“Vaccine trials for children are ongoing and WHO will update its recommendations when the evidence or epidemiological situation warrants a change in policy,” it said.
Why the need to proceed with caution? One reason is illustrated by what happened in Sonoma County, CA when an otherwise healthy 15-year-old teenager was found dead by his mother. The teenager had received his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine two days prior.
From the Death Investigation Synopsis Report, courtesy of Reopen California Schools:
The decedent was found unresponsive in his bedroom after his mother was checking on his welfare long after he was supposed to wake in the morning. The decedent was pronounced dead at the scene due to obvious death. The decedent had been in good health with no medical history and had received his second Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccination approximately two days before his death.
The CDC is aware this is not an anomaly. Back in July, they investigated the death of a 13-year-old Michigan teenager who died two days after receiving his second shot of the Pfizer vaccine. As early as June 2021, reports out of Israel saw a link between the second shot of the Pfizer vaccine and complications, particularly in young men under 30.
After emergency personnel pronounced the young man dead on the scene, his body was transported to the Sonoma County morgue facility, and a thorough post-mortem exam was done by a forensic pathologist.
After extensive research, additional testing, and collaboration with numerous other entities, the cause of death was determined to be: “STRESS CARDIOMYOPATHY WITH PERIVASCULAR CORONARY ARTERY INFLAMMATION (hours to days), due to, UNKNOWN ETIOLOGY IN SETTING OF RECENT PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINATION (days).” There were no other significant conditions contributing to the death listed.
Reopen California Schools obtained this report from Daniel Bryant, a fellow parent acquainted with the family.
Their Twitter thread continued:
According to parents behind the PRA, there are no official juvenile deaths listing complications from the Covid vaccine as the cause of death in Sonoma County. Parents requested details of juvenile deaths where manner of death was “undetermined” and the report mentions Covid.
Using the information obtained, parents were then able to find this death in the VAERS database. Interestingly, the VAERS entry only mentions the date of the first dose 23 days prior, not the date of the second dose two days prior.
The parents offer their condolences to the family who lost their child and wish them privacy. They also want to bring this information to light, especially considering varying teen vaccination policies around the world and with the upcoming state vaccine mandate to attend school.
As our Managing Editor Jennifer Van Laar reported on California’s latest vaccine mandate:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that he will be signing an executive order requiring all students in the state – in public and private schools – to take the COVID-19 vaccine in order to attend school in person.
But not just to attend school- the vaccine is required for a student to participate in extracurricular activities such as sports, theater, clubs, school social events, and dances; basically anything that matters to a young person beyond schooling.
Yet the data and scientific studies that show the side effects and deaths associated with giving the vaccine to young people appear to not be a factor in Governor Newsom and his health experts’ decision-making.
Along with obtaining the PRA, Bryant’s research revealed that up until now, Sonoma County has had zero pediatric COVID deaths. Tragically, now they have at least one death that appears to be vaccine-related.
The thread ends with this sobering assessment:
Here is Sonoma County’s Covid dashboard showing zero pediatric Covid deaths. 58% of teens 12-15 are fully vaccinated. There is no dashboard in Sonoma County showing adverse Covid vaccine reactions. https://t.co/hLJE4Ez6WD pic.twitter.com/RPkr6WRNHu

And just so Reopen California Schools is not accused of being “anti-vax,” the thread writer offered this conclusory thought:
That calculus is as faulty as putting a teenaged boy into an XL man’s suit and expecting it to fit. But this is not clothing choices, it is the life of a child.
