Mexico's Minister of Health Opposes Vaccines for Children

Mexico’s Minister of Health, Jorge Alcocer, recently told a national newspaper that: “that COVID-19 vaccines could inhibit the development of children’s immune systems.” 

In a speech before the National Congress, Dr. Alcocer further elaborated: 

“Children have wonderful immune systems compared to the later phases of their life” and that “hindering” the “learning” of a child’s immune system, or the “cells that defend us our whole lives” — with a “completely inorganic structure” such as a vaccine — is not the right thing to do.”

Alcocer has stated publicly he wouldn’t vaccinate his own grandchildren.
