WASHINGTON (TND) — The government has approved the first-ever COVID-19 vaccine injury claim payouts.
Three claims were approved by the government for people who could prove that there was some injury by the shots. One of the payments was for anaphylaxis while the other two are for myocarditis.
Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute Jeffrey Singer joined The National Desk’s Jan Jeffcoat Wednesday morning to discuss the story.
“As far as the anaphylaxis is concerned, that's a severe allergic reaction. That to me doesn't indict the vaccine because you could get anaphylaxis for virtually any substance but when it comes to myocarditis it's been pretty established now for quite some time, particularly in young males under the age of 30,” he said. “You can get myocarditis with each additional mRNA shot so in fact in European public health agencies, many of them have been not recommending that anyone under the age of 30 get the third shot let alone boosters.”
Singer says in the U.S. the CDC is still recommending children aged six months and up get the booster and many colleges won't let you on campus unless you get vaccinated.
“I think as we see more claims made about myocarditis and the vaccine, maybe it's going to get our CDC and a lot of universities to think that policy isn't gonna stay,” he said.
