On February 16th 2020, they advised a non-urgent offer to all 5 to 11-year-olds of 2 (10mcg) doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech paediatric vaccine.
Are they in a position to advise COVID vaccinations to our children when they have failed to declare their conflicts of interest and big monies received in their workplace from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation?
The following information has been sourced from a “deep dive” search conducted by Dr Zoe Harcombe.
The JCVI issued a statement on February 16th:
“The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has updated its vaccination advice for children aged 5 to 11, with a view to increasing protection against potential future waves of coronavirus (COVID-19).
“Although this age group is generally at very low risk of serious illness from the virus, a very small number of children who get infected do develop severe disease.
“Latest evidence suggests that offering the vaccine ahead of another potential wave will protect this very small number of children from serious illness and hospitalisation – and will also provide some short-term protection against mild infection across the age group.
“The committee has therefore advised a non-urgent offer to all 5 to 11-year-olds of 2 (10mcg) doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech paediatric vaccine. The 2 doses should be given with an interval of at least 12 weeks between doses.
“The recommendation should not displace the delivery of other non-COVID-19 childhood vaccinations or any other part of the COVID-19 vaccination programme” (source).
Not one member of the JCVI COVID -19 subcommittee who was responsible for that statement declared conflicts of interest. However, the majority of them have links to the pharmaceutical companies and/or Gates Foundation through the money for their research or their institutions receiving huge amounts of money from them.
The Members of the JCVI
The JCVI has a COVID-19 sub-committee which has 15 core members and one lay member.

“The overall chair of the JCVI is Professor Andrew Pollard, Chair (University of Oxford). The membership details reported, “In order to prevent any perceived conflict of interest it was agreed that the JCVI Chair (Professor Andrew Pollard), who is involved in the development of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine at Oxford, would recuse himself from all JCVI COVID-19 meetings.”
Five of them had provided additional information in the “non-declaration” that did in fact reveal, conflicts of interest. Additionally, a “cursory” search on the remaining members, was carried out by Dr Zoe Harcombe that was to reveal that six members had conflicts of interest which included, running a COVID-19 vaccine trial to being their organisation’s representative for Pfizer.
