From the Tom Woods Letter:
Well, he’s gone and done it now.
Yesterday I reported on the roundtable I attended in West Palm Beach, where Governor Ron DeSantis hosted a group of medical experts who have fought against the failed virus mitigation policies from the beginning.
The event closed with the announcement that Florida would be the first state to come out in opposition to COVID vaccination for healthy children.
Well, today the Florida Department of Health, under the direction of the heroic Dr. Joseph Ladapo, the state’s surgeon general, released its guidance regarding COVID vaccination and children:
Florida recognizes that parents should always be empowered to make the best health decisions for their children. It is essential that health care practitioners review all data to evaluate risks and benefits unique to each patient when determining what health care services to provide, including the administration of COVID-19 vaccines. These decisions should be made on an individual basis. As the risks of administering a COVID-19 vaccine to healthy children may outweigh the benefits, the Florida Department of Health has issued the following guidance:
Based on currently available data, healthy children aged 5 to 17 may not benefit from receiving the currently available COVID-19 vaccine. The Department recommends that children with underlying conditions are the best candidates for the COVID-19 vaccine.
At the present time, there are certain risks to consider that may outweigh benefits among healthy children with no underlying conditions:
• Limited risk of severe illness due to COVID-19
• High prevalence of existing immunity among children
• Absence of data informing benefit of COVID-19 vaccination among children with existing immunity.
• In clinical trials, higher than anticipated serious adverse events occurred among those receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
• Reduced COVID-19 vaccine efficacy among children 5-17
• Risk of myocarditis due to the COVID-19 vaccine
For children with underlying health conditions or comorbidities, COVID-19 vaccines should be considered in consultation with your health care practitioner. Parents are encouraged to discuss the risks and benefits with their children’s health care practitioner when evaluating whether their child should receive a COVID-19 vaccine, particularly for children with underlying health conditions or comorbidities.
In general, healthy children with no significant underlying health conditions under 16 years old are at little to no risk of severe illness complications from COVID-19. For adolescents 16 to 17 years of age, the risk of myocarditis due to the COVID-19 vaccines may outweigh the benefits.
Healthy Children Ages 5 to 11
In a clinical trial, there were no cases of severe illness among children ages 5 to 11 among any placebo recipients or COVID-19 vaccine recipients. A study conducted out of New York determined that COVID-19 vaccine efficacy declined 84%, from 68% to 12%, over a span of two months for children aged 5 to 11.
Healthy Adolescents Ages 12 to 17
The same study determined that COVID-19 vaccine efficacy declined 40%, from 85% to 51%, over a span of two months for adolescents ages 12 to 17. There is also concern for the risk of myocarditis and pericarditis in children, especially among adolescent boys. One study found the highest rates of myocarditis among males ages 12 to 15, followed by adolescent males ages 16 to 17 years old.
The usual hysterics are losing their minds over this, but not one word of it is untrue.
I figured you would enjoy reading it.
Here’s something else that a chunk of you will enjoy, particularly my budding capitalists.
I used to give access to this speech — the best speech I have ever given, on any subject — as a bonus when people bought expensive products from me. I never gave it away for free.
But now I am. It will help people, so why not?
It’s based on my personal experience running several online businesses.
It’s the speech I gave at Commission Expo in Orlando, where I explained to a room full of experienced marketers why I was kicking the crap out of them in sales despite having a much smaller email list.
If you’re an entrepreneurship nerd like me, you will love this speech. It’s full of things you can also do, and that I can assure you work like a charm.
If you’re not, no problem.
But if you are, you’re going to be really, really happy you watched this. At the very least, you’ll be solidly entertained. That much I can guarantee. But if you actually implement what I teach here, you can expect to see results — possibly very big results.
