Former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center Dr. Ben Carson recently expressed his opposition to vaccinating children against COVID. Dr. Carson, called vaccinating children against COVID a “giant experiment.

"Dr. Carson was asked if he thinks children should be inoculated against COVID. He replied, “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,” Dr. Carson reasoned, as reported by The Blaze. “And we haven’t been for years and years going through all these things for seasonal flu.”

Dr. Carson argued that the long-term implications of the pediatric COVID vaccines are currently unknown, which should spark red flags for parents. He said, “We don’t know what the long-term impact of these vaccines is, so this is really sort of a giant experiment.”

It’s worth noting that a Harvard professor of immunology who also serves as a voting member of the FDA advisory committee, Dr. Eric Ruben, indicated that the push to get kids vaccinated is like running an experiment to see what potential effects will have on children.

“We’re never gonna learn about how safe the vaccine is until we start giving it,” Dr. Ruben said.

Dr. Carson cast doubt on the efficacy of the vaccines for children, asking rhetorically if parents wanted to “put our children at risk, when we know that the risk of the disease to them is relatively small” especially when “we don’t know what the future risks are.”
