Former Republican presidential candidate and expert neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson called the COVID-19 injections “a giant experiment,” adding that vaccinating America’s kids “makes no sense whatsoever” due to the extremely low mortality rate when it comes to coronavirus infection among children.
Carson, who served in the Trump administration as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, issued a warning about the Biden Regime’s push to vaccinate America’s children for COVID-19, citing children’s extremely low mortality rate from coronavirus and the unknown long term impact of the injections and referring to the entire vaccination effort as “a giant experiment.”
Speaking to Maria Bartiromo of Fox News on Sunday Morning Futures, Dr. Carson said he “absolutely not” when asked if he supported the Center for Disease Control (CDC) decision to roll out Pfizer COVID-19 injections for children ages 5-11 years old.
“The fact of the matter is the mortality rate for children from COVID-19 is 0.025, which is very similar to the rate for seasonal flu, and we haven’t been for years and years going through all these things for seasonal flu,” Dr. Carson explained.

“Plus we don’t know what the long term impact of these vaccines is, so this is really sort of a giant experiment. Do we want to put our children at risk, when we know that the risk of the disease to them is relatively small, but we don’t know what the future risks are, why would we do a thing like that?” he continued. “It makes no sense whatsoever.”
Dr. Carson then dove into the notion of natural immunity to COVID-19, highlighting the fact there have been “a number of studies that have shown that it is very, very effective” at combating coronavirus.
“You look at the Cleveland Clinic Study – 1,300 of their healthcare workers who had been previously infected – none of them got reinfected,” Dr. Carson said. “So, I know the CDC is coming out with their recommendations and trying to spin things their way, but we ought to look at all of the data.”
