(The Daily Sceptic) – According to Icelandic online newspaper Fréttin, the Icelandic Medicines Agency has received 107 reports of side effects of COVID vaccines in children, of which 11 are classified as serious.
A serious adverse effect is defined as an effect of a drug that leads to death, a life-threatening condition, hospitalization, or prolongation of hospitalization or that causes disability or birth defects in humans. Also, reports that are considered clinically important are classified as serious.
The rate of reported versus experienced adverse effects, as well as the ratio of reported effects that actually are proven to be vaccine-induced, remain unclear, but according to estimates the reporting rate of adverse effects is quite low.
According to one extensive research study, fewer than 1 percent of adverse effects from vaccines are reported, and in general 1–13 percent of serious adverse effects from drugs are reported. According to a recent article in the Icelandic Medical Journal, studies show that generally less than 10 percent of vaccine side-effects are reported.
Fréttin has interviewed a number of people who have been seriously injured after COVID vaccinations and in none of those cases did doctors or health authorities report the events, though in some cases the patients themselves did.
What might then be the actual number and incidence rate of experienced serious adverse effects from COVID-19 vaccines experienced by Icelandic children?
In the 5–11 age group, 19,083 children have been injected. No serious adverse effects have been reported in that group. A possible explanation might be that fewer children in this group have received two injections and the vaccine dose for this age was smaller.
In the 12–15 age group, 15,404 children have been injected (79 percent of 19,499 children), according to the official website. Four cases of serious adverse effects have been reported. If we assume a 1 percent reporting rate, this means 400 serious events, or one in every 39 children. If we assume a 10 percent reporting rate, we have 40 cases of serious adverse effects, one in every 385 children.
In the 16–17 age-group, Fréttin reporters assume that 80 percent have been vaccinated (this age group is included in the 16–29 group, which has a 90 percent vaccination rate). Seven serious cases have been reported. Assuming a 1 percent reporting rate, this means 700 serious events, one in every 11 children. Assuming a 10 percent reporting rate we have 70 cases of serious adverse effects, one in every 105 children.
In total, 41,814 children aged 5–17 have been injected (68.55 percent of the total number of children in this age group) and 11 serious adverse effects have been reported. Assuming 1 percent of serious side effects are reported, this comes to 1,100 serious cases, one in every 38 children. Assuming a 10 percent reporting rate, we get 110 cases, one in every 380 children.
The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response.
But it's not too late to do something about it.
SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.
The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level.
194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.
This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.
SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.
Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."
Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.
The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO.
Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.
These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.
SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty
The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read.
"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive.
"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.
SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.
These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights.
We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.
Sign the petition - speak up now!

It is interesting in this context to look at the findings from a recent Icelandic study, “SARS-CoV-2 Infections in Icelandic Children,” published in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal. The study period is February 28, 2020, to August 31, 2021.
The researchers followed the outcomes of all children diagnosed with COVID-19 during the study period. They found that infections in schools were rare, no child was hospitalized with COVID-19 and none had severe symptoms. This study is in line with the results of a large Swedish study conducted in 2020 on nearly two million children.
Interestingly, two of the study authors took an active part in pushing for child vaccination early this year, despite their own findings.
As reports of adverse effects are not investigated to determine causation, it is hard to determine what percentage of experienced adverse effects are actually caused by the vaccines. But the number of reports, coupled with the estimated reporting rate, compared with an expected rate of serious adverse effects from flu vaccines of one to two per million, indicates that the incidence is very high in comparison. Even if no underreporting is assumed, it is still a staggering 268 per million. This is similar to recent German figures.
Considering the aforementioned study which found serious complications from COVID-19 in children to be practically non-existent, this raises serious doubts about the continued push for child-vaccination.
