MINOR IMPACT: Vaccine manufacturers claim that Covid-19 vaccines are 95 percent “effective,” but the FDA is allowing companies to define effectiveness as “prevention of mild symptoms.” The studies are not designed to detect a reduction in outcomes such as severe illness, hospitalization or death.1,2 For individuals who develop severe symptoms, the vaccine is not a remedy. Instead, nutritional and oxidative support can help keep the illness from going into “overdrive.”3
EXPECT ADVERSE REACTIONS: Participants in every Covid-19 vaccine trial have reported adverse reactions including high fever, chills, muscle pains and headaches.4-6 Some have even reported severe reactions that required hospitalization and invasive treatment. According to the FDA, potential long-term effects may include Guillain-Barré syndrome, brain swelling, muscle weakness and paralysis, convulsions and seizures, stroke, narcolepsy, shock, heart attack, autoimmune disease, arthritis and joint pain, multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, and death.7 Some UK health workers have experienced anaphylactic shock after receiving one dose of the approved vaccine.8
WON’T PREVENT COVID-19: An FDA Pfizer briefing paper published December 10, 2020 revealed 43 percent more suspected cases of Covid-19 in the vaccinated group than in the placebo group within seven days of vaccination.9
NO LIABILITY: Covid-19 vaccine manufacturers will be protected from all liability—if you are injured, you cannot sue.10 Manufacturers will have complete indemnity even though all previous attempts at creating coronavirus vaccines caused harm and never advanced to regulatory approval.11
WILL NOT END RESTRICTIVE MEASURES: Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health acknowledges that the vaccines may prevent symptoms but will not block spread of the virus, so vaccine recipients will still need to wear masks, practice social distancing and avoid crowds.12,13
NOT NECESSARY: According to the CDC’s current best estimate, the “infection fatality rate” (IFR) for Covid-19 is less than 1 percent for people age 69 and younger, including a .003 percent IFR for children and adolescents.14
COULD MAKE YOU STERILE: Two prominent doctors, including the ex-head of Pfizer’s respiratory research, warn that Covid-19 vaccines contain a spike protein called syncytin-1, vital for the formation of the placenta.15 If the vaccine triggers an immune response to this protein, then female infertility, miscarriage or birth defects could result.

Thank you for your thorough thoughts on this hard pressing issue and continuing to educate others!
Very interesting article. I’d like to see it updated with more facts about side effects of vaccines now, since many people have had their dose at this point February 2021. Personally I know quite a few people who have had the jab with no side effects at all. Perhaps like most things it’s a case of “every body is different” ?
I agree. In my small corner of the Earth, I too know of some people with one & two shots and have experienced relatively mild symptoms. However, I’m hearing from reputable sources of others that have experienced detrimental side-effects (mentioned in this article) including death! Feb.12 CDC Reported Deaths & Injuries: https://bit.ly/3ancFZi
Worse yet (and I hope this is wrong), but the following interview with a Dr. Tenpenny states that many will begin to exhibit these side-effects in 3-6 months: https://bit.ly/2OHiHeZ
There’s currently way too many red flags to ignore this and I personally believe there’s going to be much regret by those who’ve given themselves over to the experimental gene therapy for a virus as deadly as the annual flu.
Alyson Reeves says
I never get the flu shot because the flu doesn’t appear to be very serious for the vast majority of people, and we (collectively) have a lot of knowledge on how to treat the flu, including with homeopathy (which I did back in 2019, when I caught it from the elementary school class I was reading to. I have a severely reduced immune system, and I still sailed through the flu with few symptoms. The teacher whose class I read for, however, was knocked out of commission for a week!).
That said, COVID-19 is different in a huge way.
1) In a really bad year, the flu can kill as many as 60,000 individuals. COVID-19, in less than 1 year, killed over 400,000 individuals (I’m being safe, here. We were at 400,000 in January — not even at the 1 year mark).
2) Homeopathy is *STILL* struggling with treatments for COVID-19. There are some ideas, but it’s still in its infancy.
3) Our bodies have been exposed to annual flu outbreaks for many years, now (some may say that the current flu strains come from the 1918 Spanish flu). Not so with COVID-19. Our bodies are woefully under prepared for something this new. Maybe 5-10 years down the road, the virus will have evolved to be less lethal, and our bodies will have seen enough of something like the virus to recognize it fast enough that we can get a jump on it and not die from it. Or…maybe not. Rabies has been around for a *LONG* time, but if I got bit by a rabid anything, I’d very quickly go get the vaccine series!
4) I used to think I was only risking my own well-being by not getting a vaccine. I now know that isn’t true. Since I know that, I won’t be going anywhere near people much older than myself if I feel I may have been exposed to the flu. And I’ll be keeping my mask on indoors whenever I’m anywhere near people I don’t know the COVID-19 vaccine status of — and I’ll be keeping my distance from them, too! I can’t risk getting COVID-19.
Yes, it would be a tragedy to get the vaccine and die from it, or even get one of the more severe side effects. It would be far more of a tragedy (and, from what I’ve read, far more likely) to get COVID-19 and either die from it, or end up a “long-hauler” with, say, no sense of taste or smell, constant brain fog, sapped energy, etc. Death isn’t the only endpoint, here. And let us not forget that one got COVID-19, there is a very high probability that one would spread it to other people, who could then become long-haulers… (Do you know of anyone who is a “long-hauler” after having gotten the flu?)
For my money, this vaccine is one I place up there with rabies and tetanus. I’m not fooling around with this one. In fact, I’ve already been fully vaccinated with the Moderna vaccine. I got a sore arm. Whee… But, because my immune system is so compromised, I’m also not fully trusting it to protect me. It’s just one more layer, like masks, and keeping my distance.
Exactly. Why leave articles up that provide old information?
Ditto fir me and thank you for posting.
Thanks for the info. Unfortunately it seems so many have made their minds up based on the fear being created. Even when faced with the general uselessness of the vaccine, let alone its danger, they still say we all need to take it to protect each other and get back to “normal.”
Tyson Bryan says
I might agree to take a experimental ‘smart vaccine’ (intelligence enhancer) in some Euro-Asian country if a grant of citizenship & and passport was part of the package. I’m an academic freebooter – time to go for broke.
Kendall Nelson says
Sadly, thousands of people have already suffered adverse reactions from recently administered COVID-19 vaccines. Out of 112,807 people vaccinated as of Dec. 18, some 3,150 recipients reported what the CDC terms “Health Impact Events.” The CDC defines this term as “unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work, required care from a doctor or medical professional.” As of Dec. 20, the CDC identified 6 cases of anaphylaxis, or severe allergic reaction, which may have been caused by an ingredient found in both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines called polyethylene glycol (PEG). Only 2 days after the first vaccine was administered in the U.S., 2 healthcare workers in Alaska who received Pfizer’s vaccine experienced allergic reactions. One of those women, with no prior history of allergies, suffered an anaphylactic reaction and spent at least 2 nights in the hospital. Then we watched as a nurse in Tennessee fainted 17 minutes after receiving Pfizer’s vaccine on live television. The explanation was that she faints every time she feels any pain, but doesn’t it seem odd that they would opt to put her on live television if they knew she would faint? Despite all of the adverse reactions, now “experts” say pregnant women or nursing mothers who want a COVID-19 vaccine should get one even though there is an utter lack of safety data amongst this demographic according to guidance from the CDC, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine. How can we the public be expected to trust fast-tracked COVID-19 vaccines after witnessing so many adverse reactions in trial volunteers and now in the public? What will happen when tens of millions of doses of vaccine are dispensed?
I’ve seen an investigative report (including death records) that that 30 year old nurse and mother of two in TN has passed away. Media is refusing to admit it of course.
Maureen Diaz says
J, can you provide us with a link to this information? I’m sure we would like to check it out!
Maureen, there were 15 footnotes of sources provided at the bottom of the story.
Kristin Ertzinger says
Can you site your sources for the stats you referenced above?
Rhonda Miga says
See the footnotes
Bruce Dickson says
Hi your comment is better writing than this slanted article. Congrats.
This is a bit silly to blame polyethelene glycol. That stuff is in many food items, including flavored coffees. People have been eating it for years.
Eating it vs. injecting it into your body with 20+ other chemicals and mRNA aka genetic altering DNA cannot be compared.
I think you mean propylene glycol which is in food but also in anti freeze. Does that make it ok?
You’re missing a hige point – one goes directly into blood bypassing the gut blood barrier first. Injectables are always much more dangerous due to this fact. If you ate arsenic found in rice (most rice has it) versus if I gave you a small dose of it in a shot – youre body would react very differently.
Rhonda Miga says
Just because it is put in food does not mean it is safe either. We are seeing more and more sick people with more and more chronic illnesses — all because of lifestyle habits – including nutrient poor additive filled foods the gov’t says are safe.
There is a typo at the bottom of your sources, with links to flyers. It should say “Printable” but says “Printalbe”.
Maureen Diaz says
Thank you for pointing this out!
I have shared this online. I got a reply asking about the claim of 43% more suspected cases in the vaccinated group compared to please one ( source footnote 9 ). I looked in the FDA pdf but couldn’t figure out how you came to that number. I would love to know that. You could email me at the address provided. Thank you so much!
John Whitling says
Me too. It’s stuff like this that lead me to believe that there is an agenda behind the email report that I received.
On page 42. 409 cases vs 287. There’s a 42.5% difference.
The only people in the study who were tested were those with “acute respiratory illness”. They represent about 1.5% of all study participants. The section you are referencing on p. 42 talks about “Suspected Covid-19 cases”. None of these people were even tested! Ditto for potential asymptomatic cases. Weston Price misses the main issue gifted to us in the FDA briefing document: the vaccine is merely 95% successful at reducing severe Covid-19 cases. The study was literally not designed to show anything about spread or transmission. Over 98% of study participants were not ever tested to see if they got the virus or not! Read between the lines: if you get the vaccine you will still probably get the virus, just a less severe case.
R Samples says
I had to look at this stat closer myself. When you read the source it is reasonably explained by the author as a reaction to the vaccine itself and not a result of COVID-19. Using this statistic to support the case of not to vaccinate seems like grasping for straws. I think there are many more compelling reasons given by the author of the flyer, but this one weakens the case. Discerning people will be quick to point out the stat and dismiss the rest of the material as having an agenda. That being said, I really appreciate the data and inclusion of sources so that we can all read the facts and make an informed decision ourselves.
If the reaction to the vaccine has similar symptoms to the virus, what difference does it make? Illness used to be described by symptoms, not by a questionable test. Sick is sick; severe symptoms are severe symptoms. It is not a positive test but severe symptoms that cause death, which is what we are trying to avoid.
I’m so confused. Isn’t the very definition of a vaccine is that it gives immunity from a disease? Here I could get the vaccine and then still get COVID but it just changes my symptoms? This is not a vaccine then…right? How can they call it a vaccine?!
John Doe says
The definition of “effective” means confers an antibody response NOT that it confers immunity. Heavy metals and allergens technically are “effective” because they confer an antibody reaponse. That’s why they add mercury, aluminum, and other adjuvants to vaccines.
Maureen Diaz says
Stephanie, it is critical that we share this information with others as few understand this. It’s just not worth the risks for the possibility of decreased symptoms, if that!
Stephanie…You should also research the DTaP/TDaP Vaccines, which also DO NOT provide the Immunity or Protection you think. A persons Symptoms will be mitigated/eliminanted when One gets either of these Vaccines for Pertussis “Whooping Cough”.
However, that person will now be able to catch Pertussis their entire life & spread it to others for about 2-4 weeks time period, until the Immune System gets the toxoid under control, which was colonizing in the persons throat & lungs the whole time. The person now represents a walking petri-dish of contagion to society at different times of their life & they’ll never know it, nor will anyone else due to NO SYMPTOMS 🙂
The caveat is; The only people that can keep getting re-infected with Pertussis are those Vaccinated or the Un-Vaccinated. Those that caught “Wild Pertussis “Whooping Cough” will have Life-time Immuntiy & these antibodies can be transfered to a developing fetus, protecting the Baby at Birth & via Breast Milk when they are younger, till of age & then they catch Pertussis for themselves & the cycle repeats. This is REAL Herd Immunty by the way, not this Fake Crap espoused by Temporary Toxic Vaccines. Supplementing the Child with Vitamin C eliminates/mitigates morbidity & mortality issues of Pertussis, which results in a week long cough, instead of the dreaded “100 day cough”.
This is what Modern Medicine & Science has taught us all.
Instead…we’re left with another FAILED DANGEROUS TOXIC Vaccine that PERMANENTLY DAMAGES a Persons Immune System….for WHAT!?!?!
The 112-Year Odyssey of Pertussis and Pertussis Vaccines—Mistakes Made and Implications for the Future https://academic.oup.com/jpids/advance-article/doi/10.1093/jpids/piz005/5359449
….”all children who were primed by DTaP vaccines will be more susceptible to pertussis throughout their lifetimes, and there is no easy way to decrease this increased lifetime susceptibility.”….
Acellular pertussis vaccines protect against disease but fail to prevent infection and transmission in a nonhuman primate model.
…”The observation that aP, which induces an immune response mismatched to that induced by natural infection, fails to prevent colonization or transmission provides a plausible explanation for the resurgence of pertussis and suggests that optimal control of pertussis will require the development of improved vaccines.”…
Gayle Ellen Woodson says
I feel compelled to respond because the information above is biased and “cherry picks” comments. I will address each bullet point.
Minor impact: While it is true that the Pfizer vaccine was 95% effective in preventing minor symptoms, it was 100% effective in preventing hospitalization. Meaning it prevented nearly all infections, and NO ONE WHO WAS VACCINATED HAD SEVERE ILLNESS OR DIED
Adverse Reactions: Are mild with the vaccine, and less than with the flu vaccine. Many reported problems during the trial are coincidental, and cannot be attributed to the vaccine. For example, one vaccine recipient recently died of a brain bleed caused by a platelet disorder. That is one case our of millions of people. The incidence of ITP in the general population is 9.5 cases per 100,000.
Won’t prevent COVID-19. Your statement is false. Infection is still possible immediately after vaccination, because it takes time to build immunity. Protection is achieved within 4-5 weeks.
Will not end restrictive measures: It is highly unlikely that a vaccinated person can spread the disease. This has not been the case for any other vaccine. Vaccines are the best way to eliminate a virus from the population. However, out of an abundance of caution, public health considerations merit continued use of masks and social distances until we know this for absolute certainty. It will also be courteous for vaccinated individuals to continue precautions out of respect for those who are unvaccinated.
Not necessary: This is the statement that is most disturbing. So far, the pandemic has resulted in 400,000 deaths in this country. Moreover, many more people who have survived have severe and long-lasting complications. While most of the deaths are in vulnerable people, it is the people at least risk of dying who are most likely to spread the disease. Spread of the disease gives the virus opportunity to mutate, with the risk of morphing into a more fatal disease
Could make you sterile: Extremely unlikely. The clinical trials excluded pregnant women, but there were many women to received the vaccine before they knew they were pregnant. No adverse effects on the pregnancy or the baby. On the other hand, COVID-19 is a much more severe disease in pregnant women. It is true that the long-term effects are not known. Therefore, a woman of child-bearing age who is otherwise healthy might be justified in postponing a vaccination until there is further data.
Vaccination is the only way out of this pandemic. Live and let die is not a viable or morally acceptable motto.
Judy T says
Re “While it is true that the Pfizer vaccine was 95% effective …” 95% is the RELATIVE risk. This is misleading and doesn’t tell us what we need to know which is the ABSOLUTE risk. From a post on another website: the claim of “95% effective” actually means: If 30,000 (divided evenly) people were in the study and if 95 people in placebo group were confirmed positive for covid, but only 5 in the vaccinated group were, then the claim that the vaccine is “95% effective” is a statistical manipulation. This is because relative risk use means 95/100 of placebo were ill, vs ‘only’ 5/100 in vaccine trial group. BUT, the denominator is 15,000, NOT 100. SO, the real stats are in the absolute risk numbers. Thus, 95/15000 vs 5/15000 is an absolute risk of 0.00633 placebo vs 0.00033 ; virtually totally ineffective. The recovery rate for this illness is above 99%.
Theodore Dalrymple in his latest book ‘False Positive’ criticizes medical studies that tout the RELATIVE risk, which is meaningless and used to deceive in order to make the drug in the study appear to have had fabulous results, when the drug is virtually useless in treating the given disease.
Ed Stephens says
You’re arguments are misleading if not downright incorrect. The Pfizer claims of 95% effectiveness was flawed by playing with statistics. Some have analyzed the actual numbers to be 19%.
We’ve now had VAERS reports of nearly 4,000 deaths ‘reported’ by covid injections; that’s nearly 30 per day and over 80,000 injuries and yet VAERS is known to be only reporting roughly 1% of what is really happening. That should scare anyone about the efficacy and safety. During the Swine flu of 1957 time frame, 53 deaths were reported by the vaccine and the government stopped it immediately and yet we’ve gone barely 4 months with at least 4,000 deaths and it’s full steam ahead! That’s madness.
By the CDC’s own definition, these are NOT vaccines, only medicine given an EUA for administration as there are NOT any FDA approved vaccines.
Furthermore, these are mRNA shots that have never been tested on humans until now and when mRNA was tested in 2005 & 2012 on animals, most died or had autoimmune disorders which is what is expected with these injections as it will affect people differently but if the persons immune response reacts, it is likely to not shut off.
The injuries reported headaches, vomiting, Cerebral Vain Thrombosis, bleeding, clotting, the list is long and one can die in the process.
We DON’T need vaccinations as we have proven therapeutics like Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin along with supplementation with Vitamin D, Zinc, Quercetin, to name a few. The drugs mentioned are cheap and proven effective and Fauci knows due to his facility discovering its success in 2005. Furthermore, HCQ and Ivermectin are being used in Third World nations with great success even more so than the US and other 1st world nations that are fixated on an untested drug cocktail using humans as their guinea pigs.
We should follow Sweden’s example, open up, no masks, no vaccines, no social distancing.
The data proves it out that it was no more than a bad flu type year. The CDC reports that there was only 6% reported deaths by covid ‘only’ as the other 94% had nearly 4 cormorbidities.
R. B. Mondorff says
Watching the pregnant woman take the jab on video and then state that she feels safe that she and her baby will be protected made me cringe. Who knows what effect that shot will have on that fetus once it’s exposed to any pathogen? Sigh!
Thank you for compiling this info and providing the references.
John Whitling says
I would like to see a more even handed report, with some rebuttal opportunities. Quite a few of your points don’t surprise me in the least .. no liability .. adverse reactions .. not necessary (really?) .. sterile (the virus can do the same as I understand it) , but many of the more important points do raise red flags that MUST be addressed.
If they cannot show that it prevents COVID spread from inoculated people then that’s a real problem.
The entire world is understandably in a rush. A lot depends on getting the virus under control. I hope that these first few vacines don’t cause the 45 other other efforts to get cancelled.
Tyler Benster says
I can appreciate the good intent behind making sure everyone is informed as possible given all the uncertainty and chaos of 2020.
With the help of Biosciences PhD and MD students at Stanford, I’ve prepared a line-by-line fact check of the article that I hope you and your readers will find informative.
I hope you will support freedom of speech and polite debate, and allow this comment to remain so readers can be exposed to a different perspective.
I appreciate the Weston Price Foundation’s perspective on many health issues, so their article resonated with me. However, in my opinion, we need more of this in our culture – “exposure to diverse perspectives and polite debate.” Thank you for wording it as such, Tyler. Because of your gracious comment, I actually read your article and will consider your points. Now, if each of these articles could make it into mainstream media along with a large dose of congeniality, maybe we could get somewhere.
Judy T says
I too appreciate Tyler’s contribution to the discussion of whether or not a vaccine is needed to combat coronavirus, which has an infection fatality rate of less than 1%. Like Tyler, I’m not a scientist, but am a citizen who is reading the opinions of scientists the media is ignoring as well as the statistics from the CDC and WHO. Having read ‘Dissolving Illusions’, published in 2012, about the history of vaccines, I believe the following: (1) Viruses are not out there – billions of them are in our bodies and are a component of our immune system. (2) A vaccine is an attempt to replace our innate immune system’s response to a specific virus. A vaccine is an imitation or synthetic replacement of our innate immune system response. And vaccines have ingredients in them that cause disease and numerous conditions detrimental to our health, that are not found to be caused by the vaccine until years later.
Judy T says
Tyler says in his article that he is eager to take the vaccine even if all it will do is reduce the symptoms and time period of convalescence. For this benefit, Tyler wants me and everyone else to get vaccinated, even though, as public health authorities admit, the vaccine will not prevent spread of the virus.
I am appalled that the govt will likely mandate a vaccine. And more vaccines will be produced and mandated as the virus mutates, which it is presently doing. This means that masks, social distancing, and lockdowns will continue indefinitely. There will be no return to normal, which is what the public believes will happen if 70% or more of Americans are vaccinated and herd immunity is reached. But herd immunity can only be reached when X number of the population is infected and their INNATE immune system fights off the infection and infected person recovers.
Those who receive the vaccine will experience adverse effects, some so severe that hospitalization and long periods of convalescence will be required to recover. And later, often years later, the recipient of the vaccine – any vaccine – will be dealing with a health condition, including autoimmune disorders, caused by the vaccine. I refuse to endanger my health by allowing the govt to inject me with a vaccine. My preference, if infected with a virus that threatens to overwhelm my immune system, is to receive treatment, such as Vitamin C therapy, a proven cure for measles for many people, or even a drug if necessary .
The science and history of vaccines proves that the means of eradicating disease and being infected and not dying from small pox, measles, polio, whooping cough, etc, is to strengthen our immune system by eating nutrient dense foods, eliminating toxins (including 5g), clean water, clean air, healthy microbe rich soil for plants and animals, and more. WAPF has a trove of info on how to be strong and healthy.
Gayle Ellen Woodson says
Judy, your response reveals some misunderstanding about vaccines and viruses. Vaccines do not “replace” our body’s immune response. A vaccine stimulates our immune response, by exposing us to a substance that , while similar to the virus, does not cause the viral illness. And yes, viruses are “out there.” The virus that causes COVID-19 was not in anyone’s body before 2019. That is why it is called a “novel virus.” I shudder to think of what the world would be like without vaccines. Smallpox and polio were horrific diseases. Measles vaccines not only prevent disease in those who are vaccinated, they prevent severe congenital malformations by removing that virus from the population.
Judy T says
Vaccines are an attempt to create a synthetic immune system – to replace what our innate immune system was created to do. Vaccines “confuse” our innate immune system, leading to our innate immune system attacking itself, which appears to be a likely reason there has been an explosion of auto immune diseases. I’m still learning and digesting what I read and so corrections and other viewpoints are welcome.
I too used think that vaccines eradicated smallpox and polio. Then this year, as public hysteria intensified over a virus that 99.5% of the population has no reason to fear, I read “Dissolving Illusions” about the HISTORY of vaccines, and learned that vaccines had nothing to do with eradicating the above 2 diseases – or numerous other diseases such as measles, whooping cough, etc. Other factors, including sanitation, improved nutrition, doctors washing their hands and using clean instruments before delivering babies, herd immunity built up by exposure and recovery to the wild virus, and certain natural therapies proven to be curative. This book is highly recommended to those who want to be informed consumers BEFORE allowing the govt to inject them with an experimental substance that will have adverse affects.
Judy T says
Gayle – I’ve visited your website and see that the work you are doing in Tanzania training ENT doctors is admirable, I also note that the Tanzanian people’s health has deteriorated since they adopted a Western diet. To understand why this has happened, you will find valuable information in Weston A. Price’s book “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration’ originally published in 1939, still available today..
JudyT, thank you for your posts. Excellent rebuttals to pro-vaxxers buying the line that this jab is perfectly safe due to its speedy production. (last part is sarcasm). It hasn’t been properly tested for one so how on earth ANYONE can make that claim is beyond reason for anyone to swallow. Pro-vaxxers are simply parroting something they cannot support with medical evidence. It just isn’t out there to support their collective belief. Dr. Sherry Tenpenny has an excellent video regarding the lunacy of putting their trust in an untested jab.
Melinda Harrison says
Thank you Tyler Benster.
There is so much misinformation about the Corona Virus. I read your link.
I’m a retired RN with experience as an Army nurse, Community health nurse and Mother Baby Nurse and lactation consulting. I have learned that is important to factcheck by going to the primary source of stated information. If you read on the internet someone saying the CDC said this or that, I go to the CDC official website to see did they really say that or was the statement taken out context. i also look at the author of said stated facts, do they have conflict of interest, what was their source of information?
I think it is important that we look at who is behind the information they are giving. What is their agenda? What are their credentials? I definitely would not take the advice about corona virus from any politician!
We are still learning about this virus. Information put out early in the pandemic is now obsolete, but many people are still putting out outdated information- “masks aren’t effective” being just one example.
I’m not against all vaccines. I’m not for mandatory vaccines or mandatory schedules of vaccines. I strongly believe that parents should educate themselves, and have the freedom to choose what is best for them and their children. Vaccines have saved lives, but they carry risks, too and sadly some have lost their lives to vaccines, too. But many have died from disease. You have to weigh the risk vs benefit, which will be different depending on your circumstances (age, where you live, current health issues, what your lifestyle is, what you eat, your environment etc.) You should be able to choose which vaccines to take with full informed consent, or be able to choose not to take a vaccine, again with being fully informed of your risks and benefits. And whatever your decision will be, it should be respected.
Again, thank you.
I also thank the Weston Price foundation for their efforts in sharing the information on good nutrition. While I am choosing to take the Corona vaccine in the spring or in summer, I will continue to drink raw milk, enjoy butter without guilt, support local farmers and ranchers who raise their animals humanely and grow vegetables and fruits organically (we live in Florida.)
Stay healthy, my friends.
Regarding legal liability for vaccines, manufacturers did have full legal liability until 1986. They manufactured vaccines for decades. Then they were heavily sued for injury/death in the 70’s-80’s. The injuries and lawsuits SHOULD have motivated them and spurred them into action to implement the highest safety standards going forward in the name of public health. Instead, the mftrs lobbied public health agencies and Congress and threatened to stop making vaccines. Out of that came the NVICA of 1986. Removing legal liability from vaccine manufacturers removes incentive to ensure the highest product safety standards. Now, vaccines are a cash cow with minimal legal and marketing expenditures. (And the Secretary of HHS has not submitted the safety reports to Congress regardung vaccines that it’s been legally required to since the Act. They acknowledged this in district court 3 years ago.) That’s why the vaccine schedule started to explode in the late 80’s-early 90’s (along side autism curves, fyi).
The COVID vaccine isn’t a “vaccine” as defined by federal definitions. Isn’t it more like gene therapy? It’s also deemed a “countermeasure” so it does NOT fall under VICP. It falls under CICP which historically pays out 8% of its claims, with no attorney fees or pain & suffering. The death benefit, if granted, is merely $366,000.
I am curious to know what discussions the medical community is having regarding the possibility of pathogenic priming or advanced disease enhancement with the COVID-19 vaccine since it was an issue with the SARS vaccine and the animal trials were skipped this time?
My in-laws in their late 70s are choosing not to get vaccinated because of the information coming out of the Weston Price Foundation. My father-in-law has type 2 diabetes, had a stroke last year, and has congestive heart failure. Is it really your belief that he should not receive a vaccination? We are extremely concerned for his health. This is truly a life or death situation.
Monica L Woolworth says
My parents are well into their 80’s. For the most part they are healthy. As a family, we made a choice for them to self quarantine. No public exposure. No visitors inside the house. I get their groceries and take them to any Doctor appts. My son takes care of any repairs needed. That’s it. My son and I both take the necessary precautions. So far so good. Knock on wood.
Judy T says
Because YOU believe that your FIL is in a life or death situation, and because YOU wonder that if he takes the vaccine it might help him stay alive, and if he doesn’t take the vaccine he might die if he gets infected with the coronavirus. Because YOU are concerned about this virus and the vaccine that’s coming on line, YOU need to learn all you can about viruses and vaccines so that YOU become an informed health consumer. From main stream media, our govt, and our public health officials, the public hears only what the vaccine producers say about the safety and efficacy of their product. YOU need to dig into this subject and read and hear about the science that the ‘experts’ are suppressing. When you have done this, fear and confusion will evaporate and you will know what your decision will be regarding the vaccine.
Kendall Nelson says
Hi Amy. I work as a consultant for the WAPF and I would like to respond to your question. I am not a doctor and I do not give medial advise, however I can tell you what I have learned from my research. My step-father also had type-2 diabetes, suffered a stroke and had congestive heart failure for many years, so I have tremendous empathy for your family’s situation.
In addition to the “Talking Points” above, I would like to mention a couple of things. First of all, despite tremendous efforts, no vaccine has ever come to fruition for any of the other 6 coronaviruses identified in humans. This is because previous vaccine candidates have had a propensity for “pathogenic priming,” meaning that the vaccine makes an illness worse – not better- when the recipient is later exposed to the wild virus or potentially another dose of vaccine. This is what Dr. Peter Hotez of Baylor College of Medicine testified about before Congress when speaking about the dangers of rushing a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2. This type of disease enhancement cause animals and humans to suffer hyper-immune responses including inflammation throughout the body and particularly in the lungs. It has also caused death. I have written about the immune enhancement phenomenon here: https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/covid-19-pursuing-truth-to-protect-our-liberties/
It is also important to remember that the trials have been conducted for a very short period of time and very few elderly people have been included. None of the Pfizer trial participants suffered from the health concerns your father-in-law suffers from, yet there was a 10-fold increase in serious adverse events in healthy older adult volunteers after they received the second dose of experimental vaccine. See this Children’s Health Defense article: https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/pfizer-covid-vaccine-trial-pathogenic-priming/
The bottom line is, there are no completed clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines and we have no idea what will happen to the general population (let alone the most vulnerable) after the second dose of vaccine is administered and time as gone by. This article is a must read. It explains the lack of safety data from clinical trials: https://off-guardian.org/2021/01/03/what-vaccine-trials/
I hope this is helpful information and that you and your family choose to do extensive research before making any decisions regarding COVID-19 vaccination.
Bruce Dickson says
This article slants towards the fear many of us had the first vaccines were 80% likely to create many serious side-effects. I believe we can be sure a few deaths and serious side effects are under-reported.
HOWEVER the great blessing in this scenario so far is the relative absence of severe side-effects compared to what we feared.
For this I am grateful. I prefer gratefulness to fear. Anyone else?
I would like to give you my analysis of the danger of mRNA vaccines that I have not seen anywhere yet.
My thirty-five year career started with chemical industry experience with very sensitive purification techniques. From that background in organic and inorganic chemistry I moved to the IT hardware and software industry. I always keep an eye on R&D in both industries on emerging technologies and trends.
My experience in industrial production and purification techniques tells me that absolute purity is not possible. There are always impurities and damaged material in pharmaceutical products – that is a 100% guarantee. The encased mRNA in the US vaccines are guaranteed to have impurities and damaged material that will enter and cause cells to produce something other than the intended spike proteins. Very small changes in RNA can have dramatic effect on what is produced.
What I am saying is beyond allergic reactions to vaccine additives like ethylene glycol as recently reported in the media. The damaged impure mRNA is guaranteed to have a moderate to terrible effect on millions. I would easily predict cancers, infertility, and birth defects, not immediately but starting in two to three years. As physicians and researchers start to notice the increasing numbers the corporate controlled media will try to provide cover by calling it Russian disinformation or conspiracy theory but the numbers will continue to increase.
I am not against traditional vaccines except that some have dangerous stabilizers and other additives. But with mRNA vaccines millions are being kept ignorant and marched directly into tragedy. My warning is especially for the young that still have most of their lives ahead of them.
John Dunne says
Excellent comments regarding mRNA purity and potential long-term issues….!
You make some good points, however, there are no stabilizers or preservatives in the mRna’s. As far as adverse allergic reactions to the mRna, has anyone thought about all the prescription drugs a large portion of the population now take on a daily basis? Some people take multiple. I can’t help but wonder if these pharmaceuticals are interacting with the mRna and causing some of these extreme allergic reactions. Have there been any research articles into that? Does anyone know?
R. Harrill says
One day…perhaps 50 or 100 years from now a curious researcher will review the statistics of who took the vaccine versus who didn’t. I won’t be alive, but they may find that the takers died many years before the non-takers of similar age and health status. Far more important, will be the numbers of young takers destined to spend decades in nursing homes as pitiful helpless shufflers . Should the numbers be reversed and non-takers be flooding the cemeteries or homes, then we will know the vaccine was a good idea. My life is far too precious to gamble until the results are in. Sadly, either way, the Big Pharma shareholders and their trillions in loot will be long gone.
“MINOR IMPACT: … The studies are not designed to detect a reduction in outcomes such as severe illness, hospitalization or death.1,2” Statement is correct, but “Minor Impact” is not. The Safety and Efficacy Study of the Pfizer vaccine set out to determine safety and efficacy. Efficacy: How many people out of 18,556 people, test positive after taking 2 vaccines compared to 18,530 who do not. According the cited BMJ article by Peter Doshi, there would not be enough data to only analyze severe cases. What is specifically not studied, due to limitations of the sample size, is ‘how effective would it be to prevent severe illness, hospitalizations or death?’. That does not, in any way, mean that the impact is minor. It only means that among a population size of 18,530 people, 95% of them were prevented from testing positive. That is a ‘major impact’ and demonstrates 95% efficacy, and there is nothing to indicate that the 95% efficacy would not apply to severe cases. https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2034577
“For individuals who develop severe symptoms, the vaccine is not a remedy. Instead, nutritional and oxidative support can help keep the illness from going into “overdrive.”3 This citation is to a actual medical publication; however, the paper is not scientifically capable to assert any claims. The study is fundamentally limited to the point where no statistical meaning could ever be derived from it. With only 107 patients, no control group or double-blind measure, or the dozens of other controls that go into a valid study, it cannot make any claim. To cite the article that using it (under certain circumstances) to make claims in many cases is illegal under both the FDA and FTC. Here is a Warning Letter from the FTC. https://www.ftc.gov/system/files/warning-letters/covid-19-letter_to_howard_robbins_dpm.pdf
EXPECT ADVERSE REACTIONS: “Participants…reactions including high fever, chills, muscle pains and headaches.4-6” Yes. 27% reported some type of reaction compared to 12% of the placebo. https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2034577 This correct, and this is good. It is the body’s natural immune response working.
“According to the FDA, potential long-term effects may include Guillain-Barré syndrome, brain swelling, muscle weakness and paralysis, convulsions and seizures, stroke, narcolepsy, shock, heart attack, autoimmune disease, arthritis and joint pain, multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, and death.7“ Absolutely incorrect. The citation is an unverified source. In addition, the Pfizer vaccine is not approved for children and never studied children, nor for long-term effects. These “long term” symptoms do not align with the actual symptoms reported in the study. See CDC website. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/Pfizer-BioNTech.html
“Some UK health workers have experienced anaphylactic shock after receiving one dose of the approved vaccine.8“ Partially verified, but omits that the health care workers had history of anaphylaxis, and carried autoinjectors with them. [WSJ – Two in U.K. Suffer Allergic Reaction to Pfizer’s Covid-19 Vaccine] The WSJ article points out that “those who suffered an allergic reaction or anaphylaxis carried adrenaline autoinjectors.” Pfizer trial data showed 0.6% of people had some form of allergic reaction (not necessarily anaphylaxis) compared to 0.5% placebo (so it is probably not the active ingredients that causes the allergy). This is the reason that those who have severe allergies are advised to not take the vaccine.
“WON’T PREVENT COVID-19: An FDA Pfizer briefing paper published December 10, 2020 revealed 43 percent more suspected cases of Covid-19 in the vaccinated group than in the placebo group within seven days of vaccination.9” Extremely incorrect. This “fact” is contrary to the most fundamental of findings of the Pfizer study. Nowhere in the FDA Pfizer briefing paper does it say that, and certainly not on page 42, as cited. [Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee Meeting]. In the study, more than 7 days after 2nd vaccine, 9 tested positive, compared to 172 placebo (94.8%). The first 7 days after the first vaccine, both groups were equivalent and begin to diverge around Day 10 https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2034577 [Figure 3] .
James Bradley says
There will always be side effects for some antibody immunizations. The side effects won’t kill you. I’m taking my chances, taking the vaccines and doing my bit to save humanity.
Immunization has worked for polo, which killed my grandfather. It worked for smallpox, which killed my great grandfather’s brother. The fact that we no longer have to live with these diseases is BECAUSE of vaccines. There is no bogeyman, the world is a lot more boring than you think. Science supports this. Our elected officials support it. This is the only way out of it.
Judy T says
“Our elected officials support it” – you think THEIR support is a good reason for YOU to get the vaccine? “This is the only way out of it.” There are other ways, the best of which is to support your immune system so it can do its job of protecting you from disease. The polio and smallpox vaccines had nothing to do with eradicating either of these diseases. Find out why by reading “Dissolving Illusions” that tells the HISTORY of vaccines using source documents.
John Kirkby says
The Covid vaccines have a relative, not absolute, claimed efficacy of 95%. The human immune system, based on the CDC’s own published Infection Mortality Rate, has an efficacy of 99.7%. Your claim that “the side effects won’t kill you” is directly contradicted by the 500+ post-vaccination U.S. deaths currently listed in the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), which is notorious for under-reporting. Over 200 of those deaths occurred within 24 hours of vaccine administration, which puts doubt to official reports that all post-vax deaths are coincidental. Then, of course, you have 10,000+ non-fatal adverse events. Here’s a sample from social media, since the actual media won’t report it:
Covid is not polio and the Covid vax, by definition, is not even a vaccine–it is experimental gene therapy. We have a way out: natural herd immunity (ask Sweden) and now-proven effective treatments (see hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin and US Senate testimony by doctors who’ve cured patients). But make your own choices. Just know that Emergency Use Authorization is NOT the same as full FDA approval, which makes all Covid vax recipients test subjects.
Michel Nor says
I need to warn everyone that the Covid 19 Vaccine from China is not working at all. We just heard that a close friend of ours took the vaccine few weeks ago and is now in the hospital in extremely bad shape with COVID 19.
Hello – I work for a wellness doctor and we handed this out to our patients. This was one response I received.
I was reading the handout I was given and happened to look into the references shown. Let me say that I realize Creation Chiropractic did not author the information presented, so please take no offense to my disagreement. I do happen to disagree with the 1st, 3rd, and 6th points made in the handout.
The first point (minor impact) asserts that effectiveness is defined only as mild symptom infection and not the others, while the reference shows that not to be the case. All the outcomes will qualify for identification of “events” but the study will not and cannot be able to claim specific reductions in the severe symptom, hospitalization, and/or death groups of events, due to lack of statistical power. This makes sense, as having sufficient numbers to demonstrate a reduction from a single-digit percentage is simply not efficient nor cost effective. But the assertion made here is misleading.
The third point (won’t prevent Covid-19) pointed to a piece of a report detailing a specific outlier in the data of suspected, but unconfirmed Covid-19 infections. This was also justified as possible reactogenicity to vaccination and/or unrelated infectious process in the same section. The assertion made here is not only misleading, but inaccurate.
The sixth point (not necessary) wasn’t even taken from actual data, it was taken from hypothetical scenario estimates, not to mention this reference is quite outdated. Further, it doesn’t take into account the emerging long-term (and possibly permanent) symptoms of Covid-19, some of which I have personal experience with.
Again, I hope you don’t take offense to these disagreements, but you know as well as I that not everyone can speak the language in these papers/articles/etc and do rely on others to inform them. I just want to do my part to help fight misinformation so everyone can make a more informed decision of their own accord. For the record, my family and I will not be taking the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, as I have many unanswered questions about long-term effects of this unproven-in-humans technology of mRNA “vaccine”. I have read many of the papers and releases about them, as well as consulted a peer of mine who is a vaccine development scientist. We will be holding out for a more traditional type of vaccine (inactivated antigen presentation) to become approved.
Hi Victoria, thank you for your thoughtful reply. I was wondering if you could take the technical language down a notch for your responses to points 1 and 3. As a reasonably informed person who is not medicalese literate, I found some of the terminology in your responses stood in the way of me understanding your position, especially after a full day of work!
One month after the second Moderna shot, my husband developed congestive heart failure, couldn’t breath, stopped eating, couldn’t lay down, severe swollen legs and limited his walking greatly. Within the next month, he died.
Better safe than sorry, I have vit c and quercetin in the fridge, enjoying organic fruit and veg, etc. Just hoping for the best. It’s all a bit too much pressure to get injected. Think I’d rather take my chances, shame once I get it I can’t go straight in for vit c…
I won’t trust any information on this site given the biased and incorrect information regarding COVID. It’s beyond irresponsible and at this point infuriating. I have stage 4 cancer and am severely immune compromised. I have had all 3 shots with the only side effect being sleepy the days I received it. I was protected from Covid a few months ago when a visiting family member spread it at a family party. They got an incorrect reading from a rapid test and 2 unvaccinated family member got very ill. By some miracle the vaccine immunity held up and protected me. This is why vaccines matter. It’s the difference between life or death for me. I’m beyond disappointed this kind of misinformation is being spread by people who supposedly operate based on scientific facts. This is clearly written with cherry picked information to support your anti-vaxx views.
I have used your products for more than a decade (specifically the fermented cod liver oil), but I’m done. I honestly don’t know if it actually helped any more than other cod liver oils would have, but I’m willing to do the work to find out. I should have done my due diligence before giving you any of my money, but now I know better and you won’t be getting my business any longer. These anti-vaccination conspiracy theories are old and worn out and you are playing on peoples’ fears and naïveté. It was actually one of your devotees who inadvertently alerted me to your views and I have watched her decline as she now believes anything she hears as long as it’s “natural”. She used to be a critical thinker.
Now we are in 2023 I think the anti-vaxxers were right. There are over 34,000 deaths in Vaers and that probably is only 1% of reporting as reporting has been discouraged by a lot of doctors. There are a million and a half adverse events. The same is happening all over the world and Japan and Taiwan are paying out Covid vaccine injury claims and so is Canada although there are so many claims that it will take years for any compensation for those who need it badly. As for me and my spouse we resisted taking the vaccine. A friend of ours got shingles after the first booster and then Covid after the second so I’ll take my chances without. We are seniors and got Covid twice without any major ill effects. I’ve had the flu worse. Two friends died of cancer, one from ALS and another had autoimmune. All took the vaccine.
Please cite a reputable source to support those numbers you stated. VAERS numbers are unverified and self-reported. Anyone can make a VAERS report claiming that a death was caused by the vaccine and there is no verification process.
Are you seriously saying your friends got shingles, cancer, ALS, and an autoimmune disease from the Covid vaccines?
When people were dying in huge numbers from the virus anti-vaxxers tried to claim that those people died of other things and then blamed it on Covid. Well, here you are doing the opposite when it comes to vaccines. When a 32-year-old healthy friend of mine died from Covid before the vaccines were available and when it was spreading like wildfire, people said she must have had comorbidities or died of something else after she spent two hellish weeks suffering from Covid-19. The virus took such a toll on her body that it killed her.
There are risks with any vaccine. I’m not saying there aren’t, but I have yet to see an anti-vaxxer post information from reputable peer-reviewed studies or even reputable news sources to support their exaggerated claims of side effects and deaths.
Your anecdotal “evidence” is no more relevant than mine. I have gotten the vaccines, masked in public, and have never had Covid. I had a minor headache after the first dose and felt fantastic after the others. Does this prove to you that the vaccines are safe and effective? It shouldn’t any more than your stories prove that the vaccine is dangerous. What’s dangerous and incredibly irresponsible is spreading misinformation and believing anecdotal information over facts.
I’m glad you suffered no lasting effects from your bouts with Covid-19. I’m also a senior and hope to stay Covid-free as I know many people around the world have suffered terribly from the virus. I would never wish that on anyone.
Tim Boyd says
Have you ever tried to submit a VAERS report? Not easy at all and no one is doing that for fun. Even if 20% are wrong, there are massively more reports of problems with Covid vaccines than all others combined. Can’t just sweep that under the rug.
Another, maybe bigger problem. According to the CDC (Source – https://www.cdc.gov/locs/2021/07-21-2021-lab-alert-Changes_CDC_RT-PCR_SARS-CoV-2_Testing_1.html) the PCR test DOES NOT WORK. Technically that means we can’t fact check anything and have no idea how many people really had some new and different disease and how many just had the flu or other previously known respiratory ailment.
The CDC did not say that PCR tests don’t work. They transitioned from emergency use of the PCR tests to newer tests that can detect both Covid and flu viruses.
Tim Boyd says
I don’t care what the fact checkers say. If you read what the CDC says, they say PCR cannot tell the difference between flu and Covid, i.e. they don’t work. Kary Mullis, who invented PCR, also says it does not work to diagnose anything, it is not a test, it is a genetic amplification process.
