15 Reasons I Won’t Be Getting a COVID Shot
Knowing how contentious this issue is, part of me would rather just write about something else, but I feel like the discussion/news is so one-sided, I should speak up.
#1: VACCINE MAKERS ARE IMMUNE FROM LIABILITY
The only industry in the world that bears no liability for injuries or deaths, resulting from their products, are vaccine makers. First established in 1986 with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, and reinforced by the PREP Act, vaccine makers cannot be sued, even if they are shown to be negligent. If a company is not willing to stand behind their product as safe, especially one they rushed to market and skipped animal trials on, I am not taking a chance on their product. No liability. No trust.
#2: THE CHECKERED PAST OF THE VACCINE COMPANIES
The four major companies making covid vaccines are/have either:
- Never brought a vaccine to market before covid (Moderna and Johnson & Johnson).
- Are serial felons (Pfizer, and Astra Zeneca).
- Are both (Johnson & Johnson).
Moderna had been trying to “Modernize our RNA” (thus the company name) — for years, but had never successfully brought ANY product to market. How nice (for them) to get a major cash infusion from the government to keep trying.
All the other major vaccine makers have paid out tens of billions of dollars in damages for other products they brought to market, knowing they would cause injuries and death (eg., Vioxx, Bextra, Celebrex, Thalidomide, and opioids).
If drug companies willfully choose to put harmful products in the market, when they can be sued, why would we trust any product where they have NO liability?
- Johnson & Johnson has lost major lawsuits in 1995, 1996, 2001, 2010, 2011, 2016, 2019
- Pfizer has the distinction of the biggest criminal payout in history. You can check out their rap sheet here. Maybe that’s why they’re demanding that countries where they don’t have liability protection, put up collateral to cover vaccine-injury lawsuits.
- AstraZeneca has lost so many lawsuits, it’s hard to count. Here’s one. Here’s another… you get the point. And in case you missed it, the company had their covid vaccine suspended in at least 18 countries over concerns of blood clots, and they completely botched their meeting with the FDA with numbers from their study that didn’t match.
- Oh, and apparently J&J (whose vaccine is approved for “Emergency Use” in the US) and AstraZeneca (whose vaccine is not approved for “Emergency Use” in the US), had a little mix up in their ingredients…in 15 million doses. Oops.
Where else in life would we trust someone with that kind of reputation?
#3: THE UGLY HISTORY OF ATTEMPTS TO MAKE CORONAVIRUS VACCINES
In the 1960’s, scientists attempted to make an RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) vaccine for infants. In that study, they skipped animal trials because they weren’t necessary back then. When exposed to the natural virus, 80% of the vaccinated infants required hospitalization and two of them died.
For the past 20 years, all attempts to create coronavirus vaccines ended in failure, because the animals in the clinical trials got very sick and many died, just like the babies in the 1960’s. This is why we did not have a coronavirus vaccine in 2020. You can read a summary of this history/science here.
The typical pattern in these studies is that all the children and animals produced beautiful antibody responses after being vaccinated. But when they were “challenged” with the wild version of the virus, an unexplained phenomenon called Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) aka Vaccine Enhanced Disease (VED) occurred, and the immune system produced a deadly “cytokine storm”.
Today, the vaccine makers have no data to suggest their rushed vaccines have overcome that problem. In other words, never before has any attempt to make a coronavirus vaccine been successful, nor has the gene-therapy technology called mRNA “vaccines” been safely brought to market.
But hey, since they had billions of dollars in government funding, I’m sure they figured that out. Except they don’t know if they have…
#4: “DATA GAPS” SUBMITTED TO FDA BY VACCINE MAKERS
When vaccine makers applied for Emergency Use Authorization (not the same as a full FDA approval), among the many “data gaps” reported was that nothing in their trials even suggests they overcame that pesky problem of Vaccine Enhanced Disease.
If that’s not alarming enough, there is no data to suggest safety or efficacy regarding:
- Anyone younger than age 18 or older than age 55
- Pregnant or lactating mothers
- Auto-immune conditions
- Immuno-compromised individuals
- No data on transmission of covid
- No data on preventing mortality from covid
- No data on duration of protection from covid
Hard to believe right? In case you think I’m making this up, check out this (on page 46) or this (on page 48) to see the data gaps in the actual documents sent to the FDA by Pfizer and Moderna, respectively.
For now, let’s turn to the raw data vaccine makers used to submit for emergency use authorization.
#5: NO ACCESS TO RAW DATA FROM THE TRIALS
Would you like to see the raw data that produced the “90% and 95% effective” claims touted in the news? Me too…
But they won’t let us see that data.
As pointed out in the BMJ, something about the Pfizer and Moderna efficacy claims smells really funny.
#6: NO INFORMED CONSENT
What most people taking the vaccine don’t know is that these products are still in clinical trials, so anyone who gets the shot is now part of an experiment. Those who do not take it, like me, are part of the “control group”. Time will tell how this experiment works out.
But, you may be asking, if the vaccines are causing harm, wouldn’t we be seeing that all over the news? Surely the FDA would step in and pause the distribution?
Well, if the adverse events reporting system was working, and censorship was not rampant, maybe things would be different.
#7: UNDER-REPORTING OF ADVERSE REACTIONS AND DEATH
According to page 6 of a study done by Harvard (commissioned by our own government), less than 1% of all adverse reactions to vaccines are actually submitted to the National Vaccine Adverse Events Reports System (VAERS).
While the problems with VAERS have not been fixed (as discussed in this letter to the CDC), at the time of going to press…
“VAERS data shows 118,902 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines, including 3,544 deaths and 12,619 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and April 23, 2021.”
And those numbers don’t include 1099 cases of Bells Palsy (as of 4/23/21) and similar disorders.
If those numbers only represent 1% of the total adverse reactions, that equates to somewhere around 354,400 deaths from the vaccines to date, and a ridiculous number of adverse reactions.
Bet you didn’t see that on the news. That death number would currently still be lower than the 424,000 deaths from medical errors that happen every year (which you also probably don’t hear about), but we are not even six months into the rollout of these vaccines yet.
#8: THE VACCINES DO NOT STOP TRANSMISSION NOR INFECTION
Wait, what? Aren’t these vaccines supposed to be what we’ve been waiting for to “go back to normal”?
Nope. Why do you think we’re getting all these conflicting messages about still needing to practice social distancing and wear masks AFTER we get a vaccine? They were not designed to stop infection nor transmission. If you don’t believe me, read the papers submitted to the FDA (links above).
What the vaccines are meant to do is lower your symptoms. That’s it… reducing symptoms is the big payoff we’ve been waiting for. Sounds like just about every other drug on the market, right?
It can’t stop us from spreading the virus. It can’t stop the virus from infecting us once we get exposed. To get the vaccine is to accept all the risk of these experimental products and the best it might do is lower symptoms?
Heck, there are plenty of other things I can do to lower my symptoms that don’t involve taking what appears to be a really risky product.
Now for the next logical question: Wouldn’t the vaccine make it more likely that we are creating asymptomatic spread? If it indeed reduces symptoms, anyone who gets it might not even know they’re sick and be more likely to spread the virus, right?
#9: THE OVERALL DEATH RATE FROM COVID
According to the CDC’s own numbers, covid has a 99.74% survival rate. Why would I take a risk on an experimental product, that doesn’t stop infection or transmission, to help me overcome a cold that has a 0.26% chance of killing me? Actually, in my age range it has about a 0.1% chance of killing me (and 0.001% chance of killing my kids), but let’s not split hairs here. With a bar (death rate) that low, we will be in lockdown every year… i.e. forever.
But wait, what about the 500,000 plus deaths, that’s alarming right? I’m glad you asked.
#10: THE BLOATED COVID DEATH NUMBERS
Something smells really funny about this one. Never before in the history of death certificates has our own government changed how deaths are reported.
Why are we now reporting everyone who dies with covid in their body, as having died of covid, rather than blaming the co-morbidities that actually took their life?
Until covid, coronaviruses (common colds) were never listed as the primary cause of death when someone died of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, auto-immune conditions, car accidents or any other major health problem.
The disease was listed as the cause of death, and a contributing factor (like flu or pneumonia) was listed on a separate line. To bloat the number even more, both the W.H.O. and the C.D.C. changed their guidelines so that those suspected or probable, but never confirmed of having covid, are included in the covid death numbers you see on TV every day.
According to the CDCs own numbers, only 6% of deaths attributed to covid are instances where covid seems to be the only issue at hand. In other words, reduce the death numbers you see on the news by 94% and you have what are likely the real numbers of deaths caused by covid-19.
Even if you ignore the bloating, the 0.26% infection fatality rate is in line with the viral death rate that circles the planet ever year.
#11: FAUCI OWNS MODERNA VACCINE PATENTS
Thanks to the Bayh-Dole Act, government workers are allowed to file patents on any research they do with tax payer funding. Tony Fauci owns over 1,000 patents (see this video for more details), including patents being used on the Moderna vaccine… for which he approved government funding. In fact, the NIH (which NIAID is part of) claims joint ownership of Moderna’s vaccine. Doesn’t anyone else see this as a MAJOR conflict of interest?
#12: THE VIRUS CONTINUES TO MUTATE
Not only does the virus (like all viruses) continue to mutate, but according to world-renowned vaccine developer Geert Vanden Bossche it’s mutating about every 10 hours.
How in the world are we going to keep creating vaccines to keep up with that level of mutation? We’re not. Given that natural immunity has never ultimately failed humanity, why do we suddenly not trust it?
Any why, if I ask questions like the above, or post links like what you find above, will my thoughts be deleted from all major social media platforms?
#13: CENSORSHIP AND THE ABSENCE OF SCIENTIFIC DEBATE
Ok, I can’t help but get snarky here, so humor me.
How did you enjoy all those robust debates broadcast simultaneously on every major news station? Wasn’t it great hearing from the best minds in medicine, virology, epidemiology, economics, and vaccinology as they vigorously and respectfully debated all the restrictions before they were imposed?
Wasn’t it great seeing public health officials grill the vaccine makers in prime time, with tough questions about products for which they have no liability?
Oh, wait…you didn’t see those debates?
No, you didn’t… because they never happened.
What happened instead was heavy-handed censorship of all but one narrative. Ironically, Mark Zuckerberg can question vaccine safety, but I can’t? When did the first amendment become a suggestion? It’s the FIRST amendment, Mark — the one our founders thought was most important.
With so much at stake, why are we fed only one narrative? If highly-credentialed scientists have differing opinions, I want to hear their arguments and make up my own mind. I don’t think I’m the smartest person in the world, but I think I can think.
To all my friends who don’t have a problem with censorship: will you have the same opinion when what you think is censored?
Isn’t censorship the technique of dictators, tyrants, and greedy, power-hungry people? Is it not a sign that those who are doing the censoring know it’s the only way they can win?
Maybe I’m weird, but if someone is censored, then I REALLY want to hear what they think. Don’t you? For example…
#14: THE WORLD’S LEADING VACCINOLOGIST IS SOUNDING THE ALARM…
When someone who is very pro-vaccine, who has spent his entire professional career overseeing the development of vaccines, is shouting from the mountaintops that we have a major problem, I think the man should be heard.
In case you missed it, here is Geert Vanden Bossche, explaining:
- Why the covid vaccine may be accelerating the virus’ ability to mutate and become more deadly.
- Why the covid vaccines may be creating vaccine-resistant viruses (similar to antibiotic resistant bacteria).
- Why we may be looking at a mass casualty event in the next few months/years, because of Vaccine Enhanced Disease and “shedding”.
If you want to watch or read the interview where he was asked some tough questions, you can check this out.
If half of what he says comes true, these vaccines could be the worst invention of all time. If you don’t like his science, take it up with him. I’m just the messenger. But I can also speak to covid personally.
#15: I ALREADY HAD COVID
I didn’t enjoy it. It was a nasty cold for two days. It was weird not being able to smell anything, but I survived. Now it appears (as it always has) that I have beautiful, natural, life-long immunity… not something likely to wear off in a few months, like the vaccine.
In my body, and my household, covid is over. In fact, now that I’ve had it, there is evidence the covid vaccine might actually be more dangerous for me. That is not a risk I’m willing to take.
