Publix pharmacies in Florida will not offer coronavirus vaccine shots to children younger than five even though U.S. health authorities now approve the procedure, various news outlets reported Thursday.

The grocery store chain said it decline offering the vaccine approved for children ages four and under “at this time,” according to the Tampa Bay Times. The chain declined to say why when asked by the outlet.

The Lakeland company’s website indicates it is still accepting coronavirus vaccine appointments for children ages five and up.

A Publix spokesperson reportedly confirmed the decision to Tampa television station WTVT later Wednesday afternoon. Read the rest at breitbart.com.

Pfizer and Moderna got the OK for their under-five coronavirus vaccines Friday from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Saturday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as Breitbart News reported.

Children in the age group began receiving the vaccines this week.

  • If any of those goofs actually looked at the results of receiving the coronavirus jab, NO ONE would be giving or receiving the “vaccine” to/from anyone.
