TAIPEI, Taiwan (LifeSiteNews) — The country of Taiwan has stopped giving kids and teens a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine due to serious safety concerns. Additionally, any plans for approving the first jab for children younger than 12 are put on ice.

Taiwan’s Ministry of Health and Welfare decided on Thursday to suspend giving second doses of Pfizer’s experimental mRNA COVID jab to children aged 12 to 17 after 16 cases of heart inflammation conditions were diagnosed in youth following the shot.

According to RT World News, the ministry’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices made the recommendation to halt administering the second dose to young people until the group of experts can adequately examine the abnormal number of potentially fatal heart inflammation conditions myocarditis and pericarditis that have been diagnosed in the nation’s youth.

The Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (CECC) indicated international data will be used in the determination of the safety of the shots for kids, with plenty of data to study as all countries are vaccinating children 12 and up except Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), young people have a particular risk of developing the potentially fatal heart conditions following the mRNA shots.

Many experts, both in America and abroad, have warned governments of the potentially catastrophic consequences of the mass vaccination of children with the experimental injections that are not set to complete clinical trials until 2023.

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 crisis in 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,” 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.”

Further sounding the alarm was Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch who recommended that parents pull their children out of school rather than give them the jab if it is being mandated to attend.

“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.”

Although the shots may not “kill every child,” Risch said, there have been an increasing number of sudden deaths in children in multiple countries around the world.

Dr. Peter McCullough, a renowned Texas cardiologist, said in response to California Gov. Gavin Newsom mandating the vaccine for all students, “[The data] doesn’t equal mandatory vaccination for children. It mandates just the opposite: an unbelievable, relentless, and unbreakable resistance to having the children vaccinated. It is simply not safe under any conditions. Period. Full stop.”
