The accuracy of information regarding COVID-19 vaccines can vary in the marketing of the vaccines and at vaccine administration sites. Please review the most updated vaccine fact sheets carefully before choosing to be inoculated.

The purpose of this post is to provide information. This post does not oppose or endorse COVID-19 vaccines. However, in my professional opinion, science is being dictated by political, ideological and financial demands rather than by facts. The marketing campaign for these vaccines is unprecedented, and the use of vaccines as vehicles for virtue-signaling intentionally divides; when did coercion become consent?

This post may be updated periodically with possible changes, omissions or additions.

The decision to receive a COVID-19 vaccine or any medical intervention is a private decision between an individual and their healthcare provider based on individual risks and benefits.

The decision not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine does not make an individual “anti-vax.” No one should hand off matters pertaining to their own health and/or personal autonomy to people who do not know them or their health history. Ask questions, think critically, especially with respect to studies conducted by companies that seek to profit from the sale of the drug. Question recent data integrity issues of medical journals that ultimately led to several retractions. Ask yourself: If COVID-19 is such a deadly virus, why is a test needed to know if one has it? 

No one should be bribed, shamed, coerced, segregated, stigmatized, discriminated against, or mandated to take an investigational COVID-19 vaccine released under an emergency use authorization.

Naturally-acquired immunity from previous infection counts toward herd or population immunity!

• Under the PREP Act, companies like Pfizer and Moderna have total immunity from liability if something unintentionally goes wrong with their vaccines.

• Immunization and “Covid immunity” should not be leveraged or used as a platform to establish digital identity or passport schemes.

• There is no long-term safety data from the use of mRNA vaccines which interact with the immune system in a novel way. Reported safety and efficacy data is extremely short-term.

• There is no FDA-approved vaccine to prevent COVID-19 as stated on the vaccine fact sheets.

• The duration of protection against COVID-19 is currently unknown as stated on the vaccine fact sheets.

• COVID-19 Vaccines may not protect everyone as stated on the vaccine fact sheets.

• Immune function is a strong determinant of an individual’s risk of and complications from pathogens. There is a high degree of individual variability in antibody responses to a pathogen in the amount, type, and quality of antibodies made, including the components of immune memory.

• There is insufficient evidence to support the need for mass vaccination of populations considered low risk, including children and the naturally immune.

• COVID-19 vaccines are not yet licensed. They have been released under an Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA.

“In general, FDA’s guidance documents, including this guidance, do not establish legally enforceable responsibilities.”

• The requirement for any individual to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for employment or participation at a university or other institution violates federal law.

Federal law: Title 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(I-III) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act states: Individuals to whom the product is administered are informed—

(I) that the Secretary has authorized the emergency use of the product;
(II) of the significant known and potential benefits and risks of such use, and
of the extent to which such benefits and risks are unknown; and
(III) of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the
consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the
alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks.

Per the COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker, there are presently 121 vaccine candidates and 17 “approved” vaccines. This post includes links to vaccine fact sheets/information for four (4) COVID-19 vaccines.

  1. Thank you. The lack of government effort at research and providing information has been very frustrating. Eventually we seem to be hurtling towards a 100% vaccination scenario whether needed or not, whether effective or not. ‘Do something’ seems to be the objective.
