Vaccines Available for Children Monday

 The Mississippi State Department of Health issued the following statement. 

The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) will begin scheduling COVID-19 vaccinations for children 5 to 11 years old after 7 p.m. today for appointments beginning Monday, November 8.

Appointments will be available at for all county health departments. Appointments can also be made by calling the COVID-19 hotline at 866-498-4948 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.

Vaccinations for all Mississippians 5 and older can also be found from other providers including healthcare providers, FQHC’s, independent and retail pharmacies.

“We are pleased this has finally been approved, and we recommend that all children 5 and older in Mississippi be vaccinated against COVID-19,” said MSDH State Epidemiologist Dr. Paul Byers. “If you have questions or concerns, we urge you to please talk with your pediatrician or healthcare provider.”

The Mississippi State Department of Health has ordered 51,000 doses of vaccine for this age group, and they are arriving at county health departments and other healthcare providers this week.

Children ages 5-11 years will be vaccinated with two 10-microgram doses of the Pfizer vaccine administered 21 days apart. The dosage is one-third of the adolescent and adult dose.

Anyone who injects their child with this should be arrested for child abuse. Your kid has zero chance of dying from covid. The long term effects of the vaccine are completely unknown.

Vaccines should be mandatory.

Let’s beat this virus and move forward.

Deaths in Children said...

@10:31 PM That is a lie and very irresponsible. Nearly 700 children have died of Covid in the U.S.

And every single one of those had pre-existing conditions 10:11am. The chance of a regular kid dying from covid is zero. Congrats, you have terrified and warped children for years to come.....over something less dangerous to them than the flu.

@10:44 AM - Source? Can you list all of them? Bovine scatology. How can you type with your tinfoil hat covering your eyes?

Better Than Ever said...

So we are ok with throwing kids with some sort of health issues into the trash/grave. Got it.

And if we toss adults with health issues (obesity, laziness, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc) into the trash... MS will cease to exist.

You idiot said...

It is irrelevant if the kids who died had pre-existing conditions...they still died, and the vaccine would have prevented most of the deaths!

10:44am— There absolutely have been pediatric Covid-19 cases that resulted in death even though there were no known underlying conditions.
But hey! Let’s assume arguendo these pediatric victims did all have an underlying condition. Examples of underlying conditions that can lead to worse Covid-19 outcomes in children include asthma, type 1 diabetes, and various congenital cardiac and circulatory anomalies.
You appear to suggest that the “regular” kids (your terminology) are the only kids worth keeping. How shall we explain this to the poor “irregular” children and their parents, grandparents and others who love them?

10:44, could you show us the link to where you got that data? Because I know a family that lost a healthy child to COVID and my healthy ten year old was hospitalized with COVID. I work in a hospital. We rarely have children hospitalized with influenza. I’ll check back in for your link to your data on “every single one”. Thanks.

No. Kids with health issues can voluntarily get the vaccine.
No need to get the overwhelming majority of healthy kids an unnecessary and frankly ineffective vaxx.

Sickly kids only please. You jerks want every soul on the planet Vaxxed are really starting to piss us off 🤬

You first.
Give us a link that proves your anecdotes are something more than the rants of a media traumatized chicken little.

Fewer than 1,000 children dying (purportedly) of COVID-19 in this country is statistically meaningless.

Check numbers of children dying every year by drowning, vehicle accidents, other illnesses, etc. Nobody wants children to die (I have 4), but COVID is an extremely unlikely way for children to die.

It is criminal to inject children with an experimental vaccine to supposedly help reduce the chances of adults catching a mostly innocuous virus. Adults are supposed to protect children, not the other way around.

Q. How many children (under age 18) in 2020 and 2021 have died from the COVID-19 disease?
A. 576

Q. How many children (under age 18) in 2020 and 2021 have died from all causes?
A. 60,811


I am *not* being anti-vaccine for children.
I am saying that my sympathies go out to any parent that looses a child for any reason.
I am also saying that deaths by COVID-19 for children need to be put into context.

Q. Is previously having COVID-19 better than having the vaccine?
A1. Yes. "The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine"

A2. No. "These data further indicate that COVID-19 vaccines offer better protection than natural immunity alone and that vaccines, even after prior infection, help prevent reinfections."

A3. Singapore had 84% of its residents vaccinated, reopened, and saw a surge of COVID-19 cases. "Fully vaccinated people made up about 30% of deaths over the last month..."


How do you make sense of the conflicting data? Simple. First you have to understand that vaccines do not prevent a person from contracting the virus. Vaccines trick the immune system into thinking that a person is infected, and anti-bodies are produced. It is the immune system that protects you, not the vaccine. A vaccinated person can still contract a disease. If they have a healthy immune system, then it can fight off the disease. If they have a weak immune system, then no amount of vaccine will help.

That is what they saw in Singapore. From the article: "Fully vaccinated people made up about 30% of deaths over the last month, most older than 60 with underlying medical woes, in line with studies showing that vaccines offer less protection to the old and very ill."

Additional sources back that up:

"Israeli doctors find severe COVID-19 breakthrough cases mostly in older, sicker patients"

"Only very old and sick die of COVID if vaccinated, Italian study shows"

@11:03 Another way to interpret the data out of Singapore is that while 85% of their population is vaccinated only 30% of the deaths were made up of those vaccinated. That means that 15% of their population made up 70% of the deaths further demonstrating vaccine efficacy.

To further emphasize the need for vaccinations vs. natural immunity, and part of why all natural immunity data is faulty, is that you must understand vaccines attempt to prevent those at risk of death from dying, not always an easy feat, while those who acquired natural immunity share one very important thing in common, they didn't die the first time.

As for vaccines for children once again we fall into the same issue of people only looking to deaths as an indicator. I don't know the data personally but I'd be curious how many suffer from post covid recovery issues, or long covid. This is something else a parent needs to take into account when determining the need for a vaccine.

11:03 : Nice job and thanks for that, i'm sure these vax nas!'s won't bother to read it.. Rumor mill is saying the booster about killed Gavin Newsome and now overseas, the hospitals are being over run with vaxxed folks suffering from all kinds of issues. 50 % spikes in the vaxxed in Euro countries. Seems the old "spike protein" is showing it's head sooner than Fauci and Gates expected. Science sucks.

I would guarantee that all of you at some point in your school career were lined up to receive a vaccine, be it polio, measles, etc. We all took these vaccines and eradicated the disease.

Two things:

1. "If they have a healthy immune system, then it can fight off the disease. If they have a weak immune system, then no amount of vaccine will help."

The first sentence is true, but very incomplete insofar as conveying the complete picture. The second sentence is totally incorrect. While a "healthy immune system" will help "fight off" any infection, a vaccine increases the ability of the recipient's immune system to "fight off" the targeted pathogen.

2. Diseases caused by viruses like SARS-COV-2 or other pathogens, be it COVID-19 or another disease, are not binary-outcome events in that the affected person will either die or completely recover in X days/weeks. Similarly, natural immunity from being infected and "recovering" is not absolute insofar as a person who was once infected and is now "recovered" can never be infected again (and the same is largely true for vaccines, COVID-19 or otherwise). There are myriad factors that come into play. Someone who had COVID-19 in February and "recovered" could die from a reinfection in November (and yes, that is true of vaccinated people, too). The bottom line is that if you had COVID-19 (and actually KNOW it via testing, not just think or assume that you did) and think you are now safe forevermore, you are making a serious mistake and taking a foolish chance. That last bit comes as no surprise at all to many doctors.

Should it be illegal to be able to buy a multi-thousand calorie "sack o' crap" for lunch? Nope, but the fact that there is a market for such things makes it clear that many people regularly make very bad choices even when clear and irrefutable evidence essentially proves their choices are very bad. The difference is that damaging your health or killing yourself with that stuff is self-contained self-destruction. Viruses and other pathogens are the diametric opposite; while viruses are not sentient, the transmission is directly related to the conduct of potential hosts, i.e., everyone. That is among the primary reasons that vaccine mandates are enacted, enforced, and generally legal and Constitutional.

5:34….you want a link posted to the death of the child that I know that died and a link for my otherwise healthy child that was hospitalized for four days with COVID?

1:14. Yes we did and the difference ? This thing they want me to take today come about because of a MAN MADE virus ! No way in fugging hell I am taking the jab knowing that. FYI : I don't do flu vax either. Why ? Efficacy pahtna !

"This thing they want me to take today come about because of a MAN MADE virus !"

This isn't a man-made virus, but if it was, it would be an Edsel converted into a Pinto strapped to the roof of an Explorer outfitted with Firestones and driven by a teenager in a mall parking lot - dangerous if you stand in front of it and demand that it stop but easy to see coming and just get out of the way. This virus was, and still largely is, easily deactivated and its transmission easily prevented. It isn't that SARS-CoV-2 is a particularly dangerous virus, it is that a large number of people are, bluntly, foolish, ignorant, and stubborn.

As a viral "weapon," it would be akin to turning down a modern attack aircraft and its weaponry in favor of a biplane armed with a bolt-action single-shot .22 and a case of cartridges, and attacking a modern US Army Air Defense battalion. Sure, if every soldier stood out in a field in their underwear, quite a few would be shot or killed, but if they took the slightest action against the attack, the damage would be little or none. In other words, when the adversary can be easily defeated it is fully within the control of those attacked to act appropriately.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
