Children 5-11 to receive Pfizer COVID vaccine in U.S.

Published

on

The United States will begin inoculating children aged between 5 to 11 with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine

A recent recommendation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated shots of the Pfizer COVID vaccine can start being inoculated into children aged 5 to 11 from next week.

The White House has welcomed the news, enlisting 20,000 health care workers to help support the process and also shipped around 15 million doses ahead of the decision.

The CDC’s Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky says this decision signifies a “momentous day” for the country with the Pfizer jab being the first pediatric COVID-19 vaccine authorised for use in the States.

Children will get two injections, given 21 days apart

But the vaccine will be given at a lower dosage – one third of the amount provided to teenagers and adults.

Some parents have been counting down the minutes until American regulators clear the vaccine for children, so that it can bring them back to “normal” in person education, as well as sports and other extracurricular activities that have been put on hold due to the pandemic.

Children are generally less likely than adults to suffer from severe cases of Covid, according to the CDC.

The agency revealed at least 2,316 kids ages 5 to 11 have suffered from multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, known as MIS-C – a rare but serious Covid-related complication, according to data shared by the CDC at the meeting.

CDC advisor Dr. Matthew Daley said there have been at least 2 million COVID cases in the age group, 8,300 hospitalisations and at least 94 deaths.

FDA modelling for benefits of vaccinating children:

Fully vaccinating 1 million kids ages 5 to 11 would prevent 58,000 Covid infections, 241 hospitalisations, 77 intensive care unit stays and one death, according to a modeled scenario published by the Food and Drug Administration last week.

Up to 106 kids would suffer from vaccine-induced myocarditis but most would recover, according to the agency.

Andrew Tate, the controversial 36-year-old influencer, has been granted a partial reprieve from the travel restrictions imposed on him.

Since August, Tate had been confined to the Bucharest area, requiring judicial approval for any travel beyond these limits. However, a recent court decision has slightly eased these restrictions, allowing him to move within Romania.

Andrew Tate has faced a litany of serious allegations, including human trafficking, rape, and involvement in an organized crime group. These accusations stem from his alleged exploitation of women to generate income for his webcam business.

Outside the courthouse, Andrew Tate expressed cautious optimism, stating that “things are moving in the correct direction.” This statement reflects the ongoing legal battle and uncertainty surrounding his future. It remains to be seen how these legal proceedings will unfold and whether further changes in travel restrictions will occur.

The case of Andrew Tate continues to be a matter of intense public interest and debate, as the allegations against him are of a grave nature. As legal proceedings progress, many will be watching closely to see how this controversial influencer’s story unfolds.

Roman Empire’s endless appeal linked to masculinity crisis

Published

on

For centuries, the Roman Empire has remained an enduring fascination for men worldwide.

The allure of this ancient civilization seems impervious to the passage of time, and a recent study suggests that its unending appeal may be intertwined with what researchers are calling the “masculinity polycrisis.”

The study, conducted by a team of anthropologists and historians, delves into the reasons behind men’s persistent obsession with the Roman Empire. It points to a multifaceted phenomenon characterised by a crisis in masculinity – a sense of lost identity and purpose that many modern men grapple with.

It’s led to the rise of social media influencers like Andrew Tate and Jordan Peterson.

The Roman Empire, often associated with strength, power, and conquest, provides a historical backdrop against which men can examine and reevaluate their own masculinity. Its military prowess, stoic values, and patriarchal hierarchy offer a stark contrast to the evolving gender roles in today’s society.

Furthermore, the study highlights the influence of pop culture, where depictions of Roman warriors, gladiators, and emperors reinforce traditional ideals of manhood. From Hollywood blockbusters to bestselling novels, these portrayals perpetuate the enduring appeal of the Roman Empire.

In the age of digital media, online forums and social media platforms serve as virtual amphitheaters where men engage in discussions about Roman history, masculinity, and identity. These spaces provide a sense of belonging and validation for those seeking to navigate the complexities of modern masculinity.
