NEW YORK CITY (LifeSiteNews) — New York City is now offering $100 incentives to encourage young children to get jabbed with the COVID-19 shot after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) voted last week to approve the injections for children between the ages of 5 and 11.
In a press conference last week New York’s Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio discussed the $100 payouts to be awarded to children who get the shot, saying, “[w]e really want kids to take advantage, families to take advantage of that.”
The push to vaccinate young children comes despite the fact that children face extremely low risk from COVID-19. This combined with the thousands of reports of serious adverse events and deaths following the jabs has led numerous experts to criticize the push to inject children with the experimental shots.
The financial incentive, which has been offered by the city to adult New Yorkers since July, was extended to children after a CDC panel unanimously voted to recommend Pfizer’s mRNA COVID-19 jab for 5 to 11-year-olds on November 2, making some 28 million U.S. children eligible for the experimental shot.
“Parents: I know you’re eager to get your child vaccinated against #COVID19,” CDC director Rochelle Walensky tweeted out last week after giving the final approval for the jabs to be distributed to elementary school-aged children.
“The distribution of the vaccine started this week & will be available at full capacity next week. I encourage parents to talk to your pediatrician about the importance of getting your child vaccinated,” Walensky said.
Just a day after the CDC recommended the abortion-tainted shots for young children, Mayor de Blasio announced New York’s public schools would immediately begin rolling out Pfizer shots to the newly eligible young children.
“In each of our schools that has kids in that 5-to-11-year-old range, we are going to have a day for each school when vaccination is provided at the school building itself. That will start next week, and we will carry it over into the following Monday,” de Blasio said at a November 3 press conference.
He added that parents would be required to accompany their children to get the shot, or at least provide verbal consent over the phone.

In another press conference the following day, de Blasio stated that children newly eligible for the Pfizer drug will also be eligible to receive a $100 incentive for getting the inoculation.
“We really want kids to take advantage, families to take advantage of that,” the New York mayor said. “Everyone can use a little more money around the holidays, but more importantly, we want our kids and families to be safe.”
Nonprofit public education news site Chalkbeat reported that elementary school-aged children who get the COVID-19 jab at either a school vaccine clinic or a city clinic in any of New York’s five boroughs will now “be eligible for the $100 incentive that the city has offered since late-July to new vaccine recipients getting their shots at city-run sites.”
“Once children get their first dose, families will receive an email with instructions on how to select a pre-paid $100 debit card or another incentive, including free tickets to sporting events or city attractions,” the outlet reported.

Maud Maron, an Independent candidate for the New York City Council, told the Daily Caller that while “[p]arents who want to vaccinate young kids have that option now,” anyone who believes getting their kids jabbed “will restore normalcy has not been paying attention.”
“Teens were promised a return to normalcy if they were vaccinated,” Maron said. “That has not happened. Middle & High school kids are masked in class, limited in sports participation and cut off from normal school experiences like dances and plays.”
Jean Hahn, a New York City mom, also spoke with the Daily Caller, expressing concern about the experimental shots’ lack of long-term safety data and suggesting the $100 incentive to get the jab seems “like a bribe.”
“It is unknown how it will impact kids who haven’t transitioned through puberty,” Hahn said. “The Mayor’s monetary incentive is also strange – if it’s safe, then does this offer of $100 seem like a bribe?”
It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.
We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.
Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.
On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.
While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.
This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.
Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:
- A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
- A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
- A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
- A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
- A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
- A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
- A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)
All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!
And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.
While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.
And now, it would seem that time has officially come.
"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."
In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."
These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.
As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.
But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.
This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.
Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

On Monday, just days after the CDC approved the jabs for children aged 5-11, de Blasio announced that over 16,700 youngsters in the city had gotten their first dose of the double-shot mRNA drug.
Low to risk of COVID to children, numerous experts condemn moves to jab kids
This summer, researchers with Johns Hopkins School of Medicine found a “mortality rate of zero among children without a pre-existing medical condition such as leukemia” when they “analyze[d] approximately 48,000 children under 18 diagnosed with Covid in health-insurance data from April to August 2020.”
In response to the finding, lead researcher Dr. Marty Makary accused the CDC of basing its advocacy of school COVID vaccination on “flimsy data.”
In an October article for the Brownstone Institute, Dr. Paul Elias Alexander, who served in the Department of Health and Human Services during the COVID-19 pandemic under the Trump administration, called the push to vaccinate young children “dangerous” and “absolutely reckless.”
“The risk-benefit discussion for children with these Covid-19 injections is a very different one than that for adults,” Dr. Alexander said. “The fact is that this is a completely novel and experimental injection therapy with no medium or long-term safety data (or even definitive effectiveness data). If we move forward with the vaccination of our children without the proper safety testing, then we will present them with potentially catastrophic risk, including deaths in some.”
Late last month, as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and CDC moved to approve the shots for young children, Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch recommended that parents pull their children out of school rather than give them the jab.
“Honestly, I would organize with other parents to take them out of the school and create homeschooling environments,” Risch said. “There’s no choice. Your child’s life is on the line.”
While stating that COVID-19 vaccination “is not a high risk that’s going to kill every child,” Risch said the danger posed by the shots is “enough of a risk, that on the average the benefit is higher for homeschooling than it is for vaccination and being in school.”
Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology employed by the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines has said that inoculating 28 million children 5 to 11 years old could lead to “1,000 or more excess deaths” while the risk from COVID-19 for healthy children is “about zero” and appears to be lower than the seasonal flu. Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, professor of medicine at Texas A&M University Health Sciences Center, has called for an “unbreakable resistance” against children receiving the jab. In a recent lecture McCullough cited numerous studies while arguing that “the chance of myocarditis, and hospitalization with myocarditis, for one of these children who is going to be forced into vaccination … is greater than being hospitalized for COVID-19.”
