A new study conducted by scientists from several respected institutions across Germany & Switzerland has discovered that 1 in every 99 Covid-19 vaccination children aged 5 and under require emergency care or hospitalisation.
The scientists also found that the risk of children requiring emergency care or hospitalisation following Covid-19 vaccination was 117% higher than the average risk following vaccination with any other type of vaccine.
The study was published on October 18th 2022, and is titled ‘Comparative Safety of the BNT162b2 Messenger RNA COVID-19 Vaccine vs Other Approved Vaccines in Children Younger Than 5 Years’.
The study was designed as a retrospective cohort study to evaluate the safety of the BNT162b2 mRNA (Pfizer) Covid-19 vaccine in children vaccinated before they reached the age of five.
Children included in the study had received at least one dose of the Pfizer injection and had written informed consent from a parent.
The study included 7806 children of an average age of 3, 3,824 of which were female, and 3,977 of which were male, and their symptoms following Covid-19 vaccination were followed up for an average of 91.4 days.
