Germany already halted it because of it.

How do we prevent Covid infection if vaccinated patients are getting Covid at such a rapid rate and majority having zero systems or so mild they believe they only have a cold
David Aronoff (he/him)
32:25
ML: thanks for your comment. Germany halted Moderna use in kids I believe, but recommended Pfizer, which is a lower dose. https://medicalxpress.com/news/2021-11-germany-moderna-jab-under-30s.html

what are the dangers of myocarditis?
Jan Brackett
32:57
What is the scientific basis of getting the vaccine if your child already has COVID antibodies?
kathythomasphoto
33:19
Can you confirm what you mean by Prevent? As we are aware you the vaccination doesn’t prevent Covid? Only masks the symptons
David Braun
33:22
Could we receive the slides?
ML
33:24
12 to 17 group is 1 out of 6000 young boys have myocarditis
David Aronoff (he/him)
33:58
Kathythomasphoto: thanks for your comment! Vaccinated people are harder to infect than unvaccinated people. That has now been shown in several studies.

so 8300 hospitalizations of 1.9mm cases (.4%) of just cases, which is obviously much much lower of the total population of children. curious how that almost nonexistent risk balances against the risk of the reality of unknown long term adverse affects.
kathythomasphoto
36:16
David can you share the info that confirms it’s more difficult to contract Covid when vaccinated? I am aware of the mild symptoms but haven’t see concrete data that it’s harder to get

How do we convince someone who is holding out because they are scared of unknown long term effects from vaccination?
Loren Lipworth (she/her)
39:31
Here are a few studies with data supporting Dave’s explanation including household studies. There are quite a few others as well: https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.09.28.21264260v2.full.pdfhttps://www.thelancet.com/journals/laninf/article/PIIS1473-3099(21)00648-4/fulltext

This is also a good story about this: https://www.newscientist.com/article/2294250-how-much-less-likely-are-you-to-spread-covid-19-if-youre-vaccinated/

Do you know of any studies with children and sickle cell trait ho have received this vaccination
kathythomasphoto
42:10
David thank you for the links
Ebony iphone
42:13
Also what was the advice about myocarditis and how to his vaccination affects the his age group
David Aronoff (he/him)
42:44
Tim.Hauck@nissan-usa.com great question! There are quantifiable risks to kids for hospitalization and MIS-C, which you note. We have no data to support long term adverse effects of vaccines and have not seen such effects of other childhood vaccines.
kathythomasphoto
42:59
I want to confirm you all agree we follow the direction of our children’s specialists with recommendation when we vaccinate our children
ryankapp
44:11
what do we tell someone who is worried about long term effects from vaccination?
David Aronoff (he/him)
44:37
Thanks RyanKnapp perhaps Dr. Banerjee can address, since this is a common question!
kathythomasphoto
44:46
Ryan my friend with the CDC is listening in all the call and said
David Aronoff (he/him)
44:53
Ryankapp not knapp. sorry!
kathythomasphoto
44:57
Oops sorry didn’t mean to hit send discard last message
Vince Durnan
45:17
How about basic myocarditis facts- esp for this age group- likely length of illness and likelihood of contracting?
Jan Brackett
47:04
Is there any long term data on how the COVID vaccine will affect puberty or fertility in 5-11 year olds?
Ebony iphone
47:13
Did you advise this age group was at higher risk for the myocarditis
kathythomasphoto
47:45
What is the statistic of “almost” all have recovered? Do you have a number on that
Tim.Hauck@nissan-usa.com
48:16
but what is the "low rate" of myocarditis. We've already established low rates of serious issues/death. and for cases of myocarditis, what is the rate of death or serious illness within that group
Ebony iphone
48:47
Really there isn’t any known long term effects of this vaccine right, because it hasn’t been out long enough?
Zak Keiper
48:51
For young boys that have had prior infection, Did the UK recommend only one dose to mitigate this risk?
David Aronoff (he/him)

Jan Brackett
49:41
What is the length of time that the COVID vaccine has been studied in 5-11 year olds compared to the flu vaccine in 5-11 year olds?
ML
50:32
I guess other countries are just unlucky
Amy Woodson
51:13
Will everyone please rename yourself….we try to make sure we know everyone on a call.
kathythomasphoto
51:53
With a time machine LOL
ML
52:06
there is a Myocarditis vaccine?
Ebony iphone
52:28
Is there any correlation with close relatives like siblings, parents, grandparents having negative side effects of the vaccine and the child having side effects of the vaccine
Jan Brackett
52:30
But right now, the COVID vaccine has only been studied in 5-11 year old for about 6 months?
Vince Durnan
54:04
Is the mRNA mechanism a reason to see no link to any fertility issues? I know that’s a worrisome hypothetical absent any explanation.
ML
56:58
where are these studies?
kathythomasphoto
57:03
The effects of it causing long pauses in menstruation, do we know how this will affect the younger females?
Ebony iphone
57:09
Can you include that data link for that stufy
Ebony iphone
57:16
Sorry study
David Aronoff (he/him)
58:18
I am happy to send the studies about fertility through USN to you! Takes a bit of time to link them here.
Zak Keiper
58:25
What is the group benefit to USN community? With almost 100% 12+ and staff, Is there a % goal for the group to provide an offramp for masking during school?
Zak Keiper
58:45
the younger group I mean
Jan Brackett
58:46
Can you confirm the length of time this vaccine has been studied in 5-11 year olds?
Ebony iphone
59:32
So due to the fact that Moderna gives more of the vaccine in their doses do you recommend Pfizer for the children due to some of the possible side effects being higher in some individuals
Ebony iphone
01:01:11
And this is only approved for emergency use in children right
Vince Durnan
01:02:36
I am appreciative of our grades 7-12 students and faculty continuing to modify basic elements of their daily schedules in order to provide additional space and insularity for the K-6 population/ It’s a total team effort and we’re monitoring carefully, along side monitoring wider citywide case numbers— which continue to decline incrementally.
Zak Keiper
01:02:55
Why is confirmed prior infection not considered immunized like other illnesses? What makes this different? I get that infection plus vaccine is better but would like to understand that better.
jeff hufford
01:03:08
USN has been a superstar in navigating this. KUDOS
kathythomasphoto
01:03:52
We appreciate you all taking so much consideration covering this and sharing all this information
jeff hufford
01:03:52
Has efficacy waned against newer variants?
Vince Durnan
01:04:12
Anyone have the marginal benefit of vax+natural infection vs. natural infection alone?
Wes Barton
01:04:12
Thanks for hosting this. Very informative.
Tim.Hauck@nissan-usa.com
01:04:22
yes, thanks for hosting
ryankapp
01:05:27
This has been fabulous - thank you! We were already on board but I joined to get info to help convince others
Zak Keiper
01:05:34
Thank you for sure
David Aronoff (he/him)
01:05:43
Great questions from you!
Quinton Walker
01:06:16
Thanks medical advisory team! So helpful in our leadership of HS through this!
Panambi
01:06:36
Thank you all for your tireless work for us this year. You have been with us every step of the way.
Amy Woodson
01:06:53
We have the best advisory team going! Thank you all for the time that you have given to us this year.
kathythomasphoto
01:11:03
But it didn’t prevent it correct?
Ebony iphone
01:12:21
So the people still contracting covid with the vaccine, are they having some of these long term effects
Loren Lipworth (she/her)
01:12:26
Zak Keiper: re: offramp for masking, there is compelling data to support that vax rates ~90-95% in school (even with ~70% vax rates in Davidson Co) removes virtually all excess risk without the need for additional measures like masking. This is where we are thankfully in high school and 7-8 so the same transitions could be considered if we reach that point in lower school.
David Aronoff (he/him)
01:12:40
Thanks Zak and all!
Jan Brackett
01:12:45
Thank you!
Loren Lipworth (she/her)
