FALSE Claim by Dr. Perro and Joseph Mercola: clearly [COVID-19] vaccines are dangerous for kids”, they cause myocarditis; children are protected from COVID-19 by innate immunity which is bypassed by vaccination.

Health Feedback rating: Inaccurate (Clinical trials showed that COVID-19 vaccines don’t pose a danger to children. Initial clinical trials and subsequent monitoring of the vaccinated population show that COVID-19 is mostly associated with mild adverse events commonly seen after any vaccine. Vaccine-induced immune responses also involve the innate immune system, contrary to the claim made in the video.)

Vaccination recruits both the innate and adaptive immune system; COVID-19 vaccines are safe for children

    Your fact check on Covid Vaccines is somewhat off base. Research has shown that there is a risk associated with Covid Vaccines. Specificcaly there is an increased risk for Myocarditis and Pericarditos in Young Men between the ages of 15 to 30. For you say there is NO risk is misinformation.
