Florida’s largest private employer, Publix Food & Pharmacy, announced yesterday that they would NOT be giving the new FDA-authorized COVID vaccines to babies and toddlers between 6 months old and 4 years old.
Since COVID-19 vaccines first became available, Publix has played a major role in tackling the public health emergency in Florida by offering vaccines to adults and, later, children as young as 5.
But the Lakeland grocery company says it will not offer the vaccine approved for children ages 4 and under “at this time.”
Spokesperson Hannah Herring said Tuesday that Publix will not release a statement explaining its decision. (Full article.)
Apparently Publix is not the only retail outlet in Florida refusing to inject babies with the toxic COVID shots.
Brianna Andrews, writing in Jacksonville for News4Jax, reports:
Children under 5 years old are now eligible for COVID-19 vaccines, but some local parents say they are struggling to find appointments to get them.
News4JAX reached out to multiple local pharmacies and hospitals, and most places didn’t carry the vaccine for young children.
It’s still possible to get an appointment, but parents really need to plan ahead.
News4JAX called a dozen local pharmacies in the area, and none of them offered the vaccine for children under 5. They told us they did not intend to.
The only place that we found that offers local appointments is CVS. (Full article.)
And while this hesitancy to inject babies with COVID experimental shots is at least somewhat understandable in Florida, where the State announced they were not supplying the shots through the Health Department, national retail outlets are also seemingly hesitant to inject babies and infants.
According to an article published on Axios yesterday, Walgreens, Costco, Rite Aid, Walmart, H-E-B, Hy-Vee, and Wegmans are only offering the shots to 3 and 4-year-olds, but not 6 months old through 2.
CVS offers the shots for children as young as 1.5 years old, but apparently not babies younger than that.
Why are these retail outlets refusing to inject the babies now that they are authorized by the FDA? Publix refused to explain their decision, suggesting that this is a legal can of worms.
Hospitals are apparently the only ones injecting the babies. Is it because they have Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) to handle the casualties, while retail outlets do not?
