NEW YORK, NY – NBC News is now promoting fear of a “tripledemic,” and that children should get the COVID shot and “avoid physical interaction with the unvaccinated” during this upcoming holiday season.
On a recent program segment titled “’Tripledemic’ fears mount as holiday season approaches,” NBC gave “tips for protecting your kids” from the human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), flu and COVID.
NBC medical adviser Dr. John Torres said, “The main thing is, number one, those who can get vaccinated against COVID and flu are vaccinated. It’s still time to get it even though Thanksgiving is a week and a half away. You can still get and give some protection. On top of that, if you’re around other family members, make sure people wash their hands. Stay home if you’re sick. You can’t overemphasize that. If you’re around people that you don’t really know that well, the old days of last year, passing around the child and everybody wants to hug and kiss the child, I’d avoid that this year or at least make sure people wash their hands.”
A graphic also appeared on the screen that, according to NBC, are recommendations for “Tips for Protecting Your Kids.” The on-screen tips were: “COVID, flu vaccines, wash hands, stay home if feeling unwell, avoid physical interaction with unvaccinated individuals.”
It is no secret that the Biden administration paid nearly the entire corporate media, including networks such as NBC, with taxpayer dollars to engage in a massive campaign to push only positive coverage about COVID shots while censoring any negative information, without disclosing it to their audiences. Congress appropriated $1 billion in fiscal year 2021 for the secretary of health to spend on activities to “strengthen vaccine confidence in the United States.” Then hundreds of news organizations were paid by the federal government to advertise for the shots as part of a comprehensive media campaign by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
However, the media fails to state the increase of adverse effects and deaths from COVID shots. For example, cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough said before the COVID-19 shots there were four cases of myocarditis per million children. Yet now there are 25,000 cases of myocarditis per million children.
Dr. McCullough said, “It’s through the roof at this point in time due to the COVID-19 vaccines until proven otherwise.”
Research continues to prove there is no benefit to children receiving a COVID shot, and in fact, the shots can cause potential harm, adverse effects and death. According to Pfizer’s own study trial data, the chance of death in children from the shot is 107 times higher than death from COVID.
The CDC recently reported higher COVID-19 case rates have been recorded among fully vaccinated children than unvaccinated in the age group 5-11 since February 2022. That’s the first time CDC recorded a higher case rate among fully vaccinated young children since data was first collected in December 2021.
The CDC even presented data at its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) meeting on September 1, 2022, that confirms the COVID shots are not safe for children. The data presented were summaries of reports from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), Vaccine Safety Data Link (VSD), a private insurance-based system that monitors hospital records, and V-safe, a voluntary smart phone-based monitoring program that relies on text messages and web surveys.
Scientific studies show that children are at very low risk of spreading the COVID infection to other children, to adults as seen in household transmission studies, or becoming very ill or dying. According to a 2020 Yale University report, scientists have observed that children fare much better than adults and have very diverse and different immune system responses to SARS-CoV-2 infection and have far less illness or mortality from COVID.
Studies by Ankit B. Patel and Dr. Supinda Bunyavanich show the virus has limited expression and presence in the upper respiratory area in young children. This partly explains why children are less likely to be infected in the first place, or spread it to other children or adults, or even get severely ill.
Research published in August 2021 by J. Loske also revealed that “the airway immune cells in children are primed for virus sensing resulting in a stronger early innate antiviral response to SARS-CoV-2 infection than in adults.”

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “COVID shots are neither safe nor effective, and children are the least likely population to be adversely affected by COVID. The media is certainly not interested in children’s health. Just like the Biden administration was pushing quarantines during the holidays during COVID, it appears NBC News is repeating this nonsense again.”
