Dr. Robert W. Malone, a developer of mRNA vaccine technology, recounts his experience earlier this week at the Louisiana statehouse where CHD team members, including Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., testified against adding Pfizer’s COVID vaccine to the state’s childhood vaccine schedule.
The Defender EDITOR’S NOTE: Following testimony provided by many experts including Children’s Health Defense Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Louisiana House Health and Welfare Committee members voted 13 – 2 to reject Gov. John Bel Edwards’ proposal to add Pfizer’s COVID vaccine to the state’s list of vaccines mandated for schoolchildren. However, the governor said he will veto the committee’s recommendation.
Earlier this week I was in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with the Children’s Health Defense (CHD) team where some of us, including CHD Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., testified at the statehouse against Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ proposal to add Pfizer’s COVID vaccine to Louisiana’s childhood vaccine schedule.
Unelected Louisiana Department of Health leadership proposed COVID vaccine mandates for students 16 and older but leadership could expand the mandate for children as young as 5.
The proposal would make the vaccine mandatory for all school children in order to attend in-person classes.
I was there to assist Health Freedom Louisiana — the physician and nurses’ advocacy group Louisiana for Medical Freedom — Rep. Kathy Edmonston and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.
The belief in Louisiana is that Edwards’ support of the vaccine mandate is an attempt on his part to curry favor with the Biden administration as he seeks a federal appointment as an exit strategy from the Louisiana government.
Louisiana’s push to mandate COVID vaccines for children is as radical as the plan advanced in California by Gov. Gavin Newsom, who said he will require all California children to get the Pfizer vaccine as soon as it is licensed or forfeit the right to in-person schooling.

Televised hearing draws crowd to statehouse
The Louisiana House Health and Welfare Committee on Monday held a televised hearing before the entire Louisiana House Health and Welfare Committee in a room packed with Louisiana residents who oppose the mandate.
Elected officials, medical care providers (including physicians and nurses) and parents — including many mothers seeking to protect their children — presented testimony opposing the proposed mandate.
From what I saw, there are a lot of angry Louisiana mothers, physicians and nurses who are absolutely not OK with a government mandate requiring their children to get an experimental vaccine that is mismatched to currently circulating viral variants, does not prevent infection and spread of the virus and is associated with significant safety risks to their children including myocarditis and even death.
The governor’s attempts to interject state government bureaucrats and D.C. politics into decisions that should reside within the family are not going down well with these groups.
The CHD team delivered a carefully researched and focused presentation to Louisiana lawmakers based on both peer-reviewed data and primary data provided by Pfizer to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Kennedy testified at Landry’s request, presenting studies and data, including Pfizer’s own data from its clinical trials.
Following the testimony, Louisiana House Health Committee members voted, 13 – 2, to reject the proposed mandate!
Three Democrats and one Independent joined all nine Republicans in voting against the recommendation. Democratic Reps. Robby Carter of Amite and Dustin Miller of Opelousas cast the only votes in favor of the mandate.
Despite the vote, Gov. Edwards said he intends to overrule the veto and add the shot to the immunization schedule starting next school year. Read More
