e-3454 (Health)

Initiated by Jean Benoit from Hamilton, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • A risk vs benefit calculation does not support giving COVID-19 vaccines to children under the age of 18;
  • COVID-19 vaccines use novel technologies and are still in Phase 3 trials to determine safety and efficacy, and are only authorized for use in Canada under emergency protocols; and
  • Although they are characterized as "rare," in fact many adverse events and deaths from COVID-19 vaccines, for both children and adults are now being reported around the world, including in Canada.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to suspend the injection of COVID-19 products from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Astra-Zeneca, Johnson & Johnson, and any other COVID-19 injectable product manufacturers in children less than 18 years of age, until adequate short-term safety trials, and long-term fertility and chronic disease trials are complete, and all findings are published and peer-reviewed with long-term data.
