BC aims to vaccinate kids five and up by early November

Studies showcasing COVID-19 shot results in children under five years of age can be expected later this year.

Health officials in British Columbia say children ages 5-11 may be eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19 by early November, and encourages them to do so once approved.

The announcement comes days after the revelation the same age group will be required to wear face-coverings in all public indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status.

“We’ve seen now how interconnected we all are,” said BC Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry on Tuesday, keeping in line with her pro collectivist language whilst equating individualism with a lack of compassion.

“The choices we make affect not only affect our own health and well-being, but it affects the health and well-being of our communities, our families, and our province … and we’re seeing that with the challenges that are faced in certain parts of our province.”

The “challenges” Henry refers to, are the unvaccinated.

“The actions we take — or choose not to take — affect the children in our lives, affect our elders and seniors, our neighbours, our friends,” said Henry, adding how communities with lower rates of vaccination have “higher rates of spread.”

At a surface glance, vaccination rates do seem to reduce cases in many areas, but only in the immediate short term, leading to a inaccurate sense of protection beyond a few months.

Data from Israel — which has seen a steady increase in COVID-19 infections since June 2021, despite a high vaccination rate — challenges the assumption that high universal vaccination rates will lead to herd immunity.

Israel’s response to their unexpected situation, in an attempt to get cases down again, was to require booster shots after six months of one’s second dose in order to be considered “fully vaccinated.” Some expect BC to follow suit.

“We are also looking at how we can use booster doses in certain communities as a way to manage some of the severe illness and the outbreaks that we are seeing,” said Henry, prior to announcing the near arrival of vaccines for youth 5-11, pending approval from Health Canada.

Dr. Steven Pelech, president and chief scientific officer at Kinexus Bioinformatics Corporation, and chair of the Scientific and Medical Advisory Committee at the Canadian Covid Care Alliance, has been warning British Columbian’s of the risks COVID-19 vaccines may impose, particularly on young people.

“If you’re under 19, your chances of having harm from the vaccine is about four to five times higher than getting infected with SARS-CoV-2 itself,” said Pelech in an August 19 interview with the Western Standard.

Several European countries suspended the use of the Moderna vaccine for people under the age of 30, citing heart inflammation as well as inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart.

Iceland has halted the Moderna vaccine for all ages.

As for Pfizer, studies showcasing COVID-19 shot results in children under five years of age can be expected later this year, says the multinational pharmaceutical corporation.

    Dr. Bonnie is one seriously stupid lady . . .
    or she is on the take like Premier Gladys in Australia.
    Have Cdn Politicians & Health Authorities taken millions from Pharmaceutical companies?

    In 1976 the Swine Flu vaccine initially killed but three (3) people, and the local government(s) in nine (9) states, immediately discontinued to administer the vaccine. A short time later, twenty-five (25) people died and the Federal government said – ENOUGH! And, shut down the vaccine distribution for the entire country. (NY Times, Oct.13, 1976)

    The sociopathic global elite, who get older by the day whilst time is running out for their individualist eugenics version for the New World Order. Their life-long goals must not be achieved by others and they doggedly believe that they must be completed while they are still alive. A truncated list might include:

    David Rockefeller, who died in 2017, but still referred to the good people of the world, as “human weeds.”

    Baron Rothschild at 85, who believes that dominance lies in the control of the world’s currencies, i.e. the Federal Reserve.

    George Soros, now 90, believes that dominance is best achieved through chaos and destruction. It would appear that George may well get his way, sooner than later…

    What they and others such as Bill Gates represent is a global cabal of the most politically and economically powerful people in the world, with an overall heinous agenda, but each with its own individual mini-agendas, fighting to lead the charge, and because they are all sociopaths, each wants to be THE ONE…!

    The one major realization many will need to internalize is that we are at war, a war against the evil medical mandates of our own government, funded by the global elite, and to fully appreciate this, it is necessary for you to believe that the same cabal of evildoers who created the Wuhan coronavirus (see Event 201), are also suspected of being the ones who produced the spike-protein-ladened-Covid vaccines in order to implement their diabolical Great Reset.

    The latest numbers from the UK reveal the covid infection rates among the vaccinated now exceed the unvaxxed in every age group over 30.

    The covid infection rates among the vaccinated now exceed the unvaxxed in every age group over 30. you can grab raw data HERE.

    This has CLEARLY become an epidemic of the vaccinated, not the unvaccinated.

    It’s also clearly deteriorating by the week with spread shifting younger. (under 18 is mostly unvaxxed and school kids are being tested at outlandish levels especially if not vaccinated. The same spills into colleges to these two brackets have some pretty iffy data bias artifacts in them as a result. It’s testdemic with oversensitive PCR, not a pandemic of kids)
    Of course, children have a greater chance of dying in a car accident or drowning than from the coronavirus.

    This is INSANE at all levels . . .
    the VAX will kill many more children or maim them for life . . . the Wuhan Flu is no threat to the healthy children.

    The Corrupt Govt Funded FakeStream Media has lied to us for 21 months regarding the Wuhan Virus. The inept & stupid Politicians and WHO connected Health Authorities are just as corrupt.

    Over 3,000 Doctors and Scientists Sign Declaration Accusing COVID Policy-Makers of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’
    “Physicians’ Declaration” produced by an international alliance of physicians and medical scientists strongly condemns the global strategy to treat COVID, accusing policy-makers of potential “crimes against humanity” for preventing physicians from providing life-saving treatments for their patients and suppressing open scientific discussion.
    The document states that “one size fits all” treatment recommendations have resulted in needless illness and death.

    Bonnie “The Borg collective” Henry – “resistance is futile, you will be assimilated”. Is she bringing her children and/or grandchildren to the front of the line? Is she taking full responsibility for all the harms that will occur in this nightmare scenario? How much will she profit from her big pharma investments?

    This is really getting ridiculous. Health Officials run amok. Vaccination doesn’t stop getting or spreading Covid.

    Stop this insanity NOW!. Kids do not need a Jab full of toxins and no data on long term effects. Covid is 99.98% survivable. Lately looking at many documents coming out, cannot say the same for the Jab. Nope go find it yourself. The more you research the more you learn.

Vulnerable Albertans 18+ can receive fourth COVID booster

Eligible individuals can begin booking fourth dose appointments beginning January 20 with AHS or at participating pharmacies by using the Alberta vaccine booking system or by calling 811.

Those 18 and older who have specific immunocompromising conditions can now book their fourth booster five months after receiving their third dose, said Alberta Health.

The decision announced on Tuesday in the provincial COVID-19 address is in line with recommendations from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) and the Alberta Advisory Committee on Immunization (AACI).

“We remain committed to protecting Albertans from the Omicron variant, and vaccinations continue to be our best tool in preventing severe outcomes,” said Premier Jason Kenney in a statement.

“We continue to rely on the latest research to guide our decision-making, and with evidence showing immunocompromised individuals benefit from a fourth dose, we are pleased to provide them.”

Eligible individuals can begin booking fourth dose appointments beginning January 20 with AHS or at participating pharmacies by using the Alberta vaccine booking system or by calling 811.

“I know that the approximately 80,000 Albertans who live with immunocompromising conditions will be relieved to receive these additional doses,” said Minister of Health Jason Copping.

“At the same time, the best way for all of us to protect ourselves and one another is to continue getting whatever dose we are eligible for. I encourage all Albertans to continue to sign up for their booster doses as soon as they can.”

Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw said the fourth COVID-19 dose will help “individuals with certain immunocompromising conditions” and will provide “additional protection” against the rapid spread of the Omicron variant.

Qualifying conditions include:

  • Transplant recipients, including solid organ transplants and hematopoietic stem cell transplants.
  • Individuals with malignant hematologic disorders and non-hematologic malignant solid tumors prior to receiving or receiving active treatment (chemotherapy, targeted therapies, immunotherapy or having received previous COVID-19 vaccines while on active treatment), excluding individuals receiving solely hormonal therapy, radiation therapy or a surgical intervention.
  • Individuals being treated with an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody such as Rituximab.
  • Individuals with chronic kidney disease on dialysis.
  • Recipients of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T-cell therapy.
  • Individuals with moderate to severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome).
  • Individuals with Stage 3 or advanced HIV infection and those with acquired COVID-19 immunization.
  • Individuals undergoing immunosuppressive therapies (e.g., anti-B cell therapies, high-dose systemic corticosteroids, alkylating agents, antimetabolites, or tumornecrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors and other biologic agents).
  • Individuals on certain medications for autoimmune diseases, including rituximab, ocrelizumab and ofatumumab.

“Youth ages 12 to 17 with the preceding conditions continue to be eligible for third doses. Fourth doses have not yet been approved for this age group,” said the release adding, “third doses have not been approved for youth under the age of 18.”

Hinshaw said the province has recorded 3279 new cases within the last 24 hours while 8995 tests were recorded for a positivity rate of 39%. Hinshaw has earlier stated actual cases are likely 10 times higher due to lack of testing.

Hinshaw also confirmed 1,089 are currently in hospital — 51% of those hospitalized are due to COVID-19 while 49% are cases with COVID-19. Currently, there are 104 people in ICU — 74% due to COVID-19 while 26% are cases with COVID-19. Nine deaths were reported in the last 24 hours.

AHS uses undercover agents to bust restaurant for accepting dog photos instead of QR codes

The test shoppers entered the restaurant at different times on January 11 and were permitted access after showing a photo of a dog and their personal identification.

Alberta Health Services (AHS) has shut down a Red Deer restaurant for allowing patrons to show dog photos in place of proof of vaccination.

The Granary was ordered closed to indoor dining on Friday after complaints to an AHS executive officer resulted in two test shoppers busting staff for accepting photographs of a dog instead of scanning vaccine passport QR codes.

The test shoppers entered the restaurant at different times on January 11 and were permitted access after showing a photo of a dog and their personal identification. It was reported a staffer pretended to scan QR codes with a tablet.

The owners have been told the indoor dining area is to remain closed until they produce a written plan on how they plan to implement the restriction exemption program moving forward.

The owners will also have to provide confirmation they have trained staff about the program and will be required to attend an administrative hearing with Environmental Public Health.

The restaurant took to its Facebook page on Friday to explain the circumstances to its patrons and offered up free coffee for all to-go orders throughout the weekend.

“To our valued guests, we had an unfortunate circumstance at our front door which involved one of our underage hostesses, and the requirements for the REP program.  We are taking the weekend to retrain and regroup,” it said.

“We look forward to serving you again as soon as we are ready to reopen.  In closing, we would like to remind everyone of the tremendous pressure being placed on front staff, and please remember to be kind.”

The restaurant has since opened again and is currently offering free rapid testing on site.

MLA Barnes demands greater punishment for corrupt politicians

“This suspension is a staggering under reaction designed to shield one of the Premier’s cronies,” said Barnes.

Independent Alberta MLA Drew Barnes is outraged that Justice Minister Kaycee Madu was only being suspended after he called Edmonton’s police chief about a ticket he received.

That action led to Madu being suspended Monday night by Alberta Primer Jason Kenney.

“This suspension is a staggering under reaction designed to shield one of the Premier’s cronies,” said Barnes, the MLA for Cypress-Medicine Hat.

“It is inexcusable that any minister’s first instinct upon receiving such a ticket is to swing influence in an attempt to get his ticket fixed. It’s just another indicator that the culture of Redford-era cronyism remains alive and well within Premier’ Kenney’s inner circle.”

After being fined $300 for speeding in an Edmonton playground zone, Madu phoned Dale McFee, the city’s chief of police, to discuss the ticket with him. 

“It is particularly galling that this minister is currently overseeing changes that will deny procedural fairness for thousands of Albertans when they face similar traffic fines,” said Barnes.

This follows the removal of traffic courts in Alberta, the previously most accessible part of the justice system now no longer available to citizens.

“Under this minister, you are considered guilty until proven innocent, unless, of course, you happen to have the local police chief on speed-dial,” said Barnes.

“It seems the minister, like the Premier, considers himself above the law. Albertans deserve better. The real question is, why hasn’t he been fired yet?”

“Over the past year, Premier Kenney has repeatedly punished both ministers and MLAs for daring to question his leadership, but when a real case of misuse of power comes along concerning one of his handpicked cronies, the fix is in. That’s not justice; that’s cronyism.”

McFee said he received the call about the ticket from Madu, saying Madu brought up the issue of racial profiling by police to stop drivers.

“This is the Minister who continues to encourage legal action against pastors and small business owners for allegedly violating the very same health restrictions that the Premier and his cronies violated on the Sky Palace patio,” said Barnes.
