The CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation has announced wishes involving air travel and large gatherings will soon resume — but only for vaccinated children.

The foundation, which grants wishes for terminally-ill children, had temporarily postponed those types of requests last year, but they’re poised to resume the program as the experimental vaccines emerge as the savior of the manufactured Covid crisis.

“I’m excited to share that Make-A-Wish will resume granting air travel wishes within the United States and its territories as well as granting wishes involving large gatherings for vaccinated Wish families, as soon as Sept. 15, 2021,” CEO Richard K. Davis explained in a video declaring the new changes.

Davis went on to highlight they will require Wish kids and their families to be fully vaccinated.

“All Wish participants, including your Wish kid and any siblings, will need to be two weeks past completion of either a one dose or a two dose vaccine.”

The CEO admitted the organization won’t require participants to present proof of vaccination, and that waivers “understanding the risk of traveling” will need to be signed.

“While we won’t ask for proof of vaccination, we’ll ask for any adult participant to sign a letter of understanding that certifies that they, and any minors participating in the Wish, are vaccinated and understand the risk of traveling at this time.”

While children up to the age of 18 are eligible for Wishes, the Food and Drug Administration has only issued emergency use authorization for Pfizer’s vaccine to be used in children as young as 12. (Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and Novavax are all still pending similar approval.)

Does the decision mean children under 12, who are not yet eligible for vaccination, won’t be able to get wishes involving large gatherings or air travel granted until the FDA gives emergency use authorization for the age group? Davis does not expand on this uncertain gray area.

Davis’ message comes as the CDC has had to acknowledge a high incidence of heart inflammation among vaccinated teens who’ve received either the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA jabs.

“The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on Wednesday that it will add a warning of heart inflammation to the fact sheet for the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines that are given to patients prior to vaccination,” reports the Epoch Times.
