|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
