Updated: Why My Daughter Will Not Be Receiving the Shot

Updated: May 30

This article was previously published but has been updated. Before you go any further, if you have already allowed your child to be injected, you may not want to read this article. My intent is not to make you feel guilty, fearful, or bad in any way for your decision. We all make our best decisions based on the information we have at the time. My objective is to provide those who have not moved forward with shots for children, the knowledge that may not have been available to them before reading this article.


With trials on children ramping up and some universities already announcing that they will require the shot for students, the question looms for many of us as to whether or not we will require/allow/encourage our children to be a part of what I believe to be the largest experiment ever known to the human race. As parents, we will take greater chances with ourselves than with our precious children, and with good cause. We are committed to raising them by making the best possible choices for them with the best information that we have available to us.


Unfortunately, there is a lack of unbiased and accurate information on this topic and, thus, my impetus for writing this article. I wish to give you another side, one that you may not have been privy to, so that you can make a more informed decision regarding the health and future of your child. Below are 17 well-researched and documented reasons why I will not be giving my daughter the jab.


  1. Under 20s have an essentially ZERO percent chance of dying from this disease. According to the CDC, the survival rate for children up to 19 years old is 99.997%. In fact, the majority of the cases in children that we see are those who were required to be tested to participate in activities/school or because they may have been exposed and, in both cases, they never showed any symptoms – it is generally that benign in children.

  2. Children are NOT the primary spreaders of the virus. Recent research shows that they are much less of a threat than previously thought, carrying a significantly smaller amount of viral material, and are much less likely to spread the virus than adults.

  3. Asymptomatic Spread is VERY rare and NOT a driver of this virus, despite what we have all been told. Please watch this
