FDA Vaccine Approval for Babies – Call to Action!

In December, the clinical trials for the COVID vaccine failed to provide immunity for young children, so more doses were recommended and now the FDA is considering vaccine approval for babies 6 months and older. 

https://www.cnn.com/2021/12/17/health/pfizer-vaccine-children/index.html

The FDA has scheduled a meeting for Feb. 15 to consider the proposal. If the thought of infants getting vaccinated with a drug with proven side effects, to combat a virus they are minimally affected by, then please contact the people cited in the article below as soon as possible:

Please see list of people below this graphic to contact.

Here are the 23 people we need to reach before Feb. 15. Please be respectful and courteous.
