- THE BLAZE - SARAH TAYLOR - NOV 1, 2021 -
Dr. Ben Carson, former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Children's Center, went on the offensive against giving COVID-19 vaccines to children.
Carson's remarks come as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced its approval for Pfizer-BioNTech's vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11 years.
What are the details?
Carson, who served as Housing and Urban Development Secretary under former President Donald Trump, blasted the "giant experiment" of vaccinating children against COVID-19 during Sunday's broadcast of Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."
When asked by host Maria Bartiromo whether he believes young children should receive the COVID-19 vaccine, Carson fired back, "Absolutely not."
"The fact of the matter is, the mortality rate for children from COVID-19 is 0.025, which is very similar to the rate for seasonal flu," he insisted. "And we haven't been for years and years going through all these things for seasonal flu."
He added that the long-term implications of the vaccines for children are currently unknown, which ought to send up red flags for parents.
"Plus, we don't know what the long-term impact of these vaccines is, so this is really sort of a giant experiment," Carson explained. "Do we want to put our children at risk, when we know that the risk of the disease to them is relatively small, but we don't know what the future risks are? Why would we do a thing like that? It makes no sense whatsoever."
