Three-year-old Dali Bardarson suffered fever, headaches and vomiting after she was mistakenly given an adult COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine instead of a children’s flu shot.

Her mother, who was also erroneously given a COVID-19 shot, is warning people to make sure the right vaccine is being jabbed into both their children’s and their own arms.

Jenna Bardarson, of Manitoba, said her daughter is healthy, but as a precautionary measure, they both went to Brandon’s Keystone Centre for flu shots on November 24.

“We went in there to get our flu shots, and instead of getting our flu shots they gave us both adult Pfizer vaccines,” Bardarson told CBC.

“If you are going in and taking your child or even yourself in just a flu shot … double-check with your health-care provider or whoever is doing it just make sure they have the right medication.”

After they both received vaccines, a health care worker told Bardarson a mistake had been made.

Bardarson, who has had two COVID-19 doses and isn’t scheduled for a booster until January 24, has also suffered fever and headaches.

Dali soon was soon feverish and headachy, then started vomiting a few days after getting the injection.

“I was kind of angry and wanted to speak to someone,” said Bardarson, adding health officials still haven’t told her how dangerous the vaccine is, or how it could affect her daughter’s or her own health.

Children under the age of five are not supposed to receive COVID-19 vaccines.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for children aged five to 11. It is one-third of the dosage for those aged 12 and older.

Manitoba Health and Seniors Care responded by e-mail to a CBC inquiry, acknowledging the mistakes were made.

The statement said medication errors “are rare, but they do occur.” 

It also claimed Bardarson was “informed of the error and provided information about the risks, which in this case was low.”

“Follow-up conversations have occurred with the immunizer involved and based on their immediate recognition of the error and disclosure to a supervisor, no further corrective action has been taken,” said Manitoba Health.

    Murderers, absolute MURDERERS! This mother should be ashamed for allowing this to be done to her child, and the jabber( I cannot call them Health Care Workers or Nurses anymore) should be charged with attempted murder.

    Sorry, Left Coast, I don’t think that they are THAT stupid BUT, many of them LOVE having almost ABSOLUTE POWER and have likely ‘well plumped up’ bank accounts in the Cayman Islands or Switzerland, courtesy of the NWO/big banks/big pharma.

Manitobans shipped to US for surgery

The move is an effort to deal with the province’s backlog of more than 153,000 surgical and diagnostic procedures, blamed on COVID-19 health care demands.

About 300 Manitobans awaiting spinal surgery will be sent to Sanford Medical Centre in Fargo ND for their operations.

The move is an effort to deal with the province’s backlog of more than 153,000 surgical and diagnostic procedures, blamed on COVID-19 health care demands.

Patients who have been on the spinal surgery waiting list for more than a year will be given priority. Some may be headed south of the border by the end of January.

Health Minister Audrey Gordon and members of the Diagnostic and Surgical Recovery Task Force are expected to provide an update at a 2 p.m. CST news conference.

The province may also be contemplating sending joint-surgery patients to Sanford.

“We acknowledge the suffering. We acknowledge the waits,” said Dr. Ed Buchel, the provincial surgery lead for Manitoba Shared Health told CBC.

Sending patients elsewhere in Canada isn’t an option because every provincial health care system is overwhelmed with demands from the Omicron variant, he said.

Health staff have been diverted from operating rooms to care for COVID-19 patients while surgery backlogs escalated.

Patients suffering broken backs, unstable spines or cancer are deemed too risky for surgery in the U.S.

Preference will be given to those with serious conditions needing urgent attention, yet are able to travel by vehicle to Sanford, 360 km from Winnipeg.

Doctors Manitoba hopes this is a short-term measure.

“Sending patients out of Manitoba for care is not ideal, but we understand the task force has very few local options right now because of the shortage of staff and the current surge in Omicron hospital admissions,” spokesperson Keir Johnson said in a statement to CBC.

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Manitoba was the only province that transferred critical care patients, 57 in all, out-of-province.

WORLD WATCH: UK announces COVID restrictions are over

Beginning Thursday, January 27, the UK government will bring an end to “mandatory certifications” — vaccine passports.

The UK government will no longer require vaccine passports and mask mandates as of next Thursday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told the House of Commons.

“We can return to plan A in England and allow plan B regulations to expire,” said Johnson, in a live address on Wednesday. 

Beginning Thursday, January 27, the UK government will bring an end to “mandatory certifications” — vaccine passports.

Johnson said organizations will be permitted to continue the voluntary pass but the government will “end the compulsory use of COVID status certification in England.”

The government also announced it will no longer require people to work from home.

With the announcement the government will no longer mandate the wearing of face masks, the house erupted with cheers.

Johnson confirmed students would no longer be required to wear facemasks in classrooms as of Thursday, but added the government will continue to suggest the use of masks in public places.

“We will trust the judgement of the British people and no longer criminalize anyone who chooses not to wear one,” said Johnson.

Restrictions on visits to care homes will also be eased across the UK.

Johnson said some measures will remain in place including self-isolation.

CTF calls for tax cuts as inflation hits 30 year high

The December 2021 consumer price index hit 4.8%, according to Statistics Canada on Wednesday.

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is calling on the Canadian government to reduce taxes to help people with the rising cost of living.

The December 2021 consumer price index hit 4.8%, according to Statistics Canada on Wednesday.

“Canadians are fueling up at the pumps and then worrying about whether they have enough left over for ground beef at the grocery store,” said Franco Terrazzano, federal director of the CTF.

“Inflation is a key economic issue facing Canadian families and our politicians need to wake up and provide some relief.”

Canadians who make more than $64,900 are going to see an extra $396 in payroll tax bills this year, according to the CTF.

The federal carbon tax increased twice during the pandemic and will increase again to 11 cents per litre of gasoline on April 1, 2022.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said carbon tax will be increasing to nearly 40 cents per litre by 2030, as well as a second carbon tax is being developed that could add another 11 cents per litre.

Additionally, the federal government is planning for an increase in alcohol taxes for the third time during the pandemic on April 1.

“High taxes and soaring prices are making the tough times tougher in Canada,” said Terrazzano.

“While other countries are cutting taxes, all we get from Canadian politicians are higher tax bills. It’s time for Ottawa to provide some tax relief and make life in Canada a little more affordable.”

Conservative leader Erin O’Toole also called on Trudeau to take immediate action.

“For the first time in 30 years, prices are up 4.8% compared to a year ago. Millions of Canadians are feeling the pinch of inflation in their daily lives. Families and seniors are falling behind and they see the Trudeau government doing nothing to give them a break,” said O’Toole in a statement.

“Food is more expensive. Gas and home heating are costing more. Rents in many cities are skyrocketing by double digits and home ownership is out of reach for millions as prices are up a staggering 26.6% in just one year.   

“More Canadians are struggling to meet ends meet, young people are giving up on home ownership and nearly half of all Canadians are worried about their financial security for the upcoming year. The high-tax, high-debt lockdown agenda of the Trudeau government has set the stage for inflation and COVID policies are making supply chain challenges worse. We are already seeing alarming shortages on shelves leading to higher prices.”

The CTF noted Spain was rated lower than Canada on the 2021 misery index, but that country’s government is taking action giving citizens breaks by cutting added tax on electricity from 21% to 10% until April 30.

South Korea, India, and several states across America have also reduced fuel taxes.
