Children’s Health Defense has filed a Citizen Petition with the Food and Drug Administration, asking them to remove Emergency Use Authorizations from all COVID vaccines.

The petition, which is signed by Meryl Nass, MD and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr, asks for the following:

“We request the Acting Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to issue, amend, revoke, or refrain from taking the administrative actions listed below regarding emergency use authorizations (EUAs), current and future new drug applications (NDAs), and biologics license applications (BLAs) for all COVID vaccines.”

The petition, which is lodged on the FDA website and currently open for comments, addresses a number of issues that have arisen as to the safety of the COVID vaccines.


The petition states that the risk of severe COVID in children is extremely low and that, in fact, the risk to children of vaccine death and injury appear to exceed the risk of COVID.

Citing the CDC’s own reports, the petition states that….

the death rate following either vaccination in this age group, assuming these children were trial enrollees, is approximately 2 in 2,000 or 0.1%. There are 74 million children in the United States. So far, 282 have died “involving Covid.” Two hundred eighty-two in 74 million is a rate of 0.00038%. While many children may not have been exposed to COVID, CDC estimated that 22.2 million children aged 5-17 had had COVID and 127 had died, at the May 12, 2021 meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, or 0.00057%.

The petition points out that “Available evidence strongly suggests that the vaccine is much more dangerous to children than the disease.”

Kennedy and Nass go on to request the following:

Given the extremely low risk of severe COVID illness in children, FDA should immediately refrain from allowing minors to participate in COVID vaccine trials,refrain from amending EUAs to include children,and immediately revoke all EUAs that permit vaccination of children under 16 for the Pfizer vaccine and under 18 for other COVID vaccines. FDA should immediately revoke tacit approval that pregnant women may receive any EUA or licensed COVID vaccines and immediately issue public guidance to that effect.


The petition also addresses the right of refusal of members of the military and states that “The FDA should issue guidance to the Secretary of the Defense and the President not to grant an unprecedented Presidential waiver of prior consent regarding COVID vaccines for Service members…”


In addition, the petition takes on the CDC and charges it with inadequate reporting of COVID vaccine related deaths, as well as noting its refusal to respond to requests for information, stating that “Children’s Health Defense asked CDC for information on post-vaccination deaths and injuries in early March 2021 and has yet to receive a response.”

The petition notes that “…only 1 to 13% of adverse reactions have been reported to the FDA and CDC via the VAERS passive reporting system,” and goes on to state that even so, “the high number of adverse events and deaths following COVID vaccines is alarming.”

Kennedy and Nass note that “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) data reveal unprecedented levels of deaths and other adverse events since the FDA issued Emergency Use Authorizations( EUAs) for three COVID vaccines. As of May 10, 2021, VAERS reported 4,434 deaths of people who received at least one COVID vaccination.”

Further questioning the adequacy of the CDC data, the petition cites the Massachusetts General-Brigham study and notes that “anaphylaxis rates (were) approximately 50-100 times greater than the rates CDC calculated using VAERS data.”


The petition also addresses the FDA’s revocation of approval of certain countermeasures, including chloroquine drugs and ivermectin and asks that the FDA immediately amend its existing guidance for these drugs.

The petition is open and available for public comment on the FDA’s website and the public is encouraged to comment.
