UMMC Offers Covid Vaccines for Kids 6 Months & Older

Annie Oeth authored the following UMMC press release

 Protection against COVID-19 for her youngest children, Omari, 4, and Olliver, 8 months, is something Kenyatice Shaw has been waiting for. 

“I've been asking Dr. (Anza) Stanley about it for months, so when it was available, I wanted them to get it,” said Shaw, an administrative assistant at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. “COVID is still out there.” 

Shaw’s sons were among the first children between the ages of 6 months and 4 years to receive COVID-19 vaccinations at Children’s of Mississippi’s Batson Kids Clinic on the campus of the University of Mississippi Medical Center. 

Vaccinations for children in this age group began July 5 at the clinic, located at 421 S. Stadium Drive in Jackson. 

"Parents of young children have waited a long time to vaccinate their children against COVID-19,” Stanley said. “I'm encouraging vaccinations for my patients if they’re eligible. This gives children and their families an extra layer of protection, especially with cases rising.” 

In Mississippi as well as nationally, COVID-19 cases have been on the rise again this summer. In the U.S., nearly 76,000 new cases of COVID-19 were reported for the week ending June 30. 

For children receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine who are between 4 and 5 years old, an emergency use authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and approved by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention allows for the two-dose series or three doses, each of which are a tenth of the adult dose. The vaccine had been authorized for use in individuals 5 years of age and older. 

Dr. April Palmer, professor and chief of pediatric infectious diseases, said COVID-19 vaccinations have been proven to be safe. 

“COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to be safe for children, as millions of doses have been given to adults and children during the past 15 months,” Palmer said. “Many children have mild symptoms or no symptoms with COVID-19, but some children have become seriously ill and needed hospitalization for COVID symptoms and complications, and some children have died. COVID-19 vaccination protects children and can prevent them from spreading the virus to others in their family.” 

Dr. Charlotte Hobbs, professor of pediatric infectious diseases co-authored a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showing that the primary series of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccinations reduced the risk of COVID-related hospitalizations by 68 percent during the Omicron outbreak earlier this year. 

For older children, during the Delta period, vaccine effectiveness against critical illness with COVID-19 (requiring life support) was found to be 96 percent among adolescents ages 12-18 who were vaccinated with a primary series. Vaccine effectiveness against non-critical COVID-19-associated hospitalization without any requirement for life support was 91 percent. 

“We know that the vaccine will not likely protect against infection completely, but it will protect against more symptomatic and certainly severe disease,” Hobbs said. 

Palmer advises parents with questions about vaccinations to consult with their pediatrician. Parents can make vaccination appointments for their children online at or by calling (601) 815-5300 or (888) 815-2005.

I was able to intercept an entire pallet of Pfizer vaccine, 4000 doses at 2 shots per dose. I've got it stored in a chest freezer in my garage. I've been injecting myself every day, sometimes multiple times a day if I can stand it. The symptoms were terrible for the first few weeks. There were times I was completely paralyzed with pain, contorted like the Edvard Munch paining and frozen in agony for hours. I became stronger and some of the worst symptoms subsided over time. I've been vaxmaxxing for almost 4 months now and I feel as though I'm becoming something greater than human now. I will continue to administer the injections into the same arm as long as possible. I'm increasing the dosages as much as I can stand and will maintain my journal.

If my baby has an A1C of 9.2 and a 50+ BMI, I will get him the vaccine. Otherwise, I'll pass.

Medicine has become a disgrace. Shame on the physicians for going along with this charade. Shame on the American Academy of Pediatrics. Zero kids, aged 0-9 years old, have died in the US with Covid as the single cause of death. There are barely any "hospitalized" cases among this age group with Covid as the single cause.

Please do not inject your helpless child with this "therapeutic." There is no net benefit to it. And, yes, despite what the narrative is, there are real risks to taking the Covid therapeutic injection.

I wouldn't take a stray dog to ummc - much less my child. They're raking in the bucks with this crap. 'Medical Care' is the 3rd leading cause of death in the USA. Look it up. BMJ

"COVID-19 vaccination protects children and can prevent them from spreading the virus to others in their family.”

Just this week, Dr. Fauci even admitted the Covid shot does not prevent infection/transmission. Dr. Wallensky, the CDC Director, has been saying it since August of 2021.

Totally safe for kids who are not at risk.

If you don’t believe in vaccines or doctors, then go rub some crystals on your head and go about your day. No one cares about your medical opinions except for the other wackos on your Facebook group. Darwin awards are easy to earn these days.

I'm not sure they really know what the vaccine does or if it prevents anything because it is still in trials, on us, and their stories keep changing.

I am more sure that they will release another variant this fall to panic the mid-terms, and/or start a war.

"If you don’t believe in vaccines or doctors, then go rub some crystals on your head and go about your day."

Oh, I believe in vaccines, but this isn't a vaccine according to the literal definition of a vaccine. Doctors in the US are nothing more than pill pushers these days - they never attempt to get root cause of disease, especially chronic diseases cancers, heart disease, and diabetes. This is evidenced by the US's average lifespan not increasing while the lifespans in other developed nations have. This is evidenced by how little time is spent with each doctor when you have an appointment. And, we know why - How else would they afford that second home in Florida panhandle if not for the line of patients running through their doors each day? There is no evidence based medicine anymore; it's all based on what the medical association you belong to tells you to the evidence is and the you lazily regurgitate it to your patients (hello Covid "vaccines"). But, by all means, keep getting your shot every 5 months for the rest of your life.

Yes sir, totally safe, until it ain't. At least that's what the follow the science crowd says.

Then, you only follow the science that agrees with your state sponsored authoritarian, pronoun approved, totally accepted, twitter reinforced opinion. Of course, this does not include previous science which concluded there were only two genders, which is systemically racist.

That reeducation camp is doing wonders for my social score. Hail Fauci.

@2:13, they started yesterday. Omicron subvariant B5 (the “ninja” variant, because “stealth” wasn’t scary enough) just in time for mail in voting at midterms

The risk of vaccine induced myocarditis or pericarditis outweighs the risk of COVID in these patients. Shocking that medicine leadership pushes the vaccine in the ultra low risk population.

@7:52, because it’s not a preventative or a treatment. At this point there is no possible way to justify this as not being homicide

“The calls and text messages are relentless. On the other end are doctors and scientists at the top levels of the NIH, FDA and CDC. They are variously frustrated, exasperated and alarmed about the direction of the agencies to which they have devoted their careers.

“It's like a horror movie I'm being forced to watch and I can't close my eyes,” one senior FDA official lamented. “People are getting bad advice and we can’t say anything.”

That particular FDA doctor was referring to two recent developments inside the agency. First, how, with no solid clinical data, the agency authorized Covid vaccines for infants and toddlers, including those who already had Covid. And second, the fact that just months before, the FDA bypassed their external experts to authorize booster shots for young children.“

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.
