Sweden Recommends Against Vaccinating 5-11

1/28/22 Reuters:

 Sweden has decided against recommending COVID vaccines for kids aged 5-11, the Health Agency said on Thursday, arguing that the benefits did not outweigh the risks.

"With the knowledge we have today, with a low risk for serious disease for kids, we don't see any clear benefit with vaccinating them," Health Agency official Britta Bjorkholm told a news conference.

She added that the decision could be revisited if the research changed or if a new variant changed the pandemic. Kids in high-risk groups can already get the vaccine.

If your friends or family who are still deep in COVID panic, it is likely the success of antisocial media playing them.  (They have already demonstrated a panic porn preference; after a while, recommendations will build this into an addiction.)  Do not rely on secondary sources (a friend of a friend, a blog) click through to their source and evaluate how trustworthy is this source?   Many news organizations, even formerly reputable ones, are strongly biased by economic interest to peddle panic porn.  But when one of these left-leaning organizations (such as Reuters) provides information that "argues against interest" (as lawyers say) it is strong evidence.  

Let me emphasize.  COVID was a very serious problem and will likely remain a while longer.  But the severity of it and the lack of contrary to official sources greatly aggravated our problems.  Antisocial media makes Himmler look like an amateur.
