There are various people publishing lists of reasons why they won’t be taking the covid-19 vaccine, each list means something deeply personal to the author and each carries its own weight. One article in particular, written by a gentleman by the name of Christian Elliot called 18 Reasons I Won’t Be Getting the Covid Vaccine, that is being published and republished on various websites and being shared on platforms here and there. Even one site that supports vaccines, in general, shared it and said that he makes very good points. On the other hand, there are those who are saying he ignored some facts, calling some of what he said untrue and the usual pushback one who has been following the vaccine dialogue has come to expect over time. Reading his article was partly behind the inspiration for a recent YouTube video we did where we laid out the different issues that we found to be quite weighty. We didn’t capture everything he said, but we added a few things to it and we added some local flavor, well – because.
Christian had this to say in his original article: “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 that I should speak up. As I always strive to do, I promise to do my best to be level-headed and non-hysterical. I’m not here to pick a fight with anyone, just to walk you through some of what I’ve read, my lingering questions, and explain why I can’t make sense of these covid vaccines.”
I like that. You know, a major problem with the way this covid pandemic has been handled across the world is the general lack of open and honest dialogue, feedback and input from people with varied viewpoints, technical and scientific knowledge, ideas and solutions. Instead, there has been one very focused and consistent narrative allowed around the world – odd in a world so diverse – that has been:
- There is a pandemic!!!
- It is deadly, people are dying!!!
- Stay indoors, stay away from people, wear a mask, and sanitize your hands and surfaces!!!
- The ONLY solution is we are creating a vaccine then your lives can go back to normal.
- You will/may be required to carry a vaccine passport to prove you got it in order to access certain facilities, services, countries and so on.
ANY attempt to suggest other solutions or options has been met with the usual weapons:
- Scoffing and ridicule.
- Discrediting of sources or solutions.
- Censorship or other unknown tactics to make solutions or information about them disappear.
- Maximization of the ‘approved narrative’ through every media channel, international NGO head and government official possible.
It’s ironic because the world keeps talking about diversity and inclusion, innovation, use of conventional and non-conventional remedies, freedom of speech and movement, right to self-determination, freedom of information, informed choice and on and on but then turns around and swats everyone who believes they live in a free society with their ‘giant flywhisk of justice’.
I present to you Christian’s list – greatly summarized by me (full length here it is a critical read and contains all the links he referenced to create it. Makes for a really great deep dive):
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. The covid-vaccine makers are allowed to create a one-size-fits-all product, with no testing on sub-populations (i.e. people with specific health conditions), and yet they are unwilling to accept any responsibility for any adverse events or deaths their products cause.
2: THE CHECKERED PAST OF THE VACCINE COMPANIES
The four major companies who are making these 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).
3: THE UGLY HISTORY OF ATTEMPTS TO MAKE CORONAVIRUS VACCINES
There have been many attempts to make viral vaccines in the past that ended in utter failure, which is why we did not have a coronavirus vaccine in 2020. … never before has any attempt to make a coronavirus vaccine been successful, nor has the gene-therapy technology that is 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: THE “DATA GAPS” SUBMITTED TO THE FDA BY THE VACCINE MAKERS
When vaccine makers submitted their papers to the FDA for the Emergency Use Authorization (Note: An EUA is not the same as a full FDA approval), among the many “Data Gaps” they reported was that they have nothing in their trials to suggest they overcame that pesky problem of Vaccine Enhanced Disease.
They simply don’t know–i.e. they have no idea if the vaccines they’ve made will also produce the same cytokine storm (and deaths) as previous attempts at such products.
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
- Immunocompromise(d) individuals
- No data on transmission of covid
- No data on preventing mortality from covid
- No data on duration of protection from covid
5: NO ACCESS TO THE 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?
But they won’t let us see that data.
6: NO LONG-TERM SAFETY TESTING
Obviously, with products that have only been on the market a few months, we have no long-term safety data.
In other words, we have no idea what this product will do in the body months or years from now–for ANY population.
7: NO INFORMED CONSENT
What most who are taking the vaccine don’t know is that because these products are still in clinical trials, anyone who gets the shot is now part of the clinical trial.
They are part of the experiment.
Those (like me) who do not take it, are part of the control group.
8: UNDER-REPORTING OF ADVERSE REACTIONS AND DEATH
According to a study done by Harvard (at the commission of 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, at the time of this writing VAERS reports over 2,200 deaths from the current covid vaccines, as well as close to 60,000 adverse reactions.
“VAERS data released today showed 50,861 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines, including 2,249 deaths and 7,726 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and March 26, 2021.”
And those numbers don’t include (what is currently) 578 cases of Bell’s Palsy.
9: THE VACCINES DO NOT STOP TRANSMISSION OR INFECTION
Aren’t these vaccines supposed to be what we’ve been waiting for to “go back to normal”?
Why do you think we’re getting all these conflicting messages about needing to practice social distancing and wear masks AFTER we get a vaccine?
The reason is because these vaccines were never designed to stop transmission OR infection.
The primary endpoint (what the vaccines are meant to accomplish) is to lower your symptoms.
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 have it.
Now for the next logical question:
If we’re worried about asymptomatic spreaders, would the vaccine not make it more likely that we are creating asymptomatic spread?
10: PEOPLE ARE CATCHING COVID AFTER BEING FULLY VACCINATED
Talk about a bummer.
You get vaccinated and you still catch covid.
11: 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 a product, that doesn’t stop infection or transmission, to help me overcome a cold that has a .26% chance of killing me–actually in my age range is has about a .1% chance of killing me (and .01% chance of killing my kids), but let’s not split hairs here..
12: 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 now, are we reporting everyone who dies with covid in their body, as having died of covid, rather than the co-morbidities that actually took their life?
Until covid, all coronaviruses (common colds) were never listed as the primary cause of death when someone died of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, auto-immune conditions, or any other major co-morbidity.
The disease was listed as the cause of death, and a confounding 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 such that those who are suspected or probable (but were never confirmed) of having died of covid, are also included in the death numbers.
13: FAUCI AND SIX OTHERS AT NIAID OWN PATENTS IN THE MODERNA VACCINE
Thanks to the Bayh-Dole Act, government workers are allowed to file patents on any research they do using tax payer funding.
Tony Fauci owns over 1,000 patents, including patents being used on the Moderna vaccine…which he approved government funding for.
In fact, the NIH (which NIAID is part of) claims joint ownership of Moderna’s vaccine.
14: FAUCI IS ON THE HOT SEAT FOR ILLEGAL GAIN-OF-FUNCTION RESEARCH
What is “Gain-of-Function” research?
It’s where scientists attempt to make viruses gain functions–i.e. make them more transmissible and deadlier.
Sounds at least a touch unethical, right?
How could that possibly be helpful?
Our government agreed, and banned the practice.
So what did the Fauci-led NIAID do?
They pivoted and outsourced the gain-of-function research (in coronaviruses no less) to China–to the tune of a $600K grant.
15: 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?
16: CENSORSHIP…AND THE COMPLETE ABSENCE OF SCIENTIFIC DEBATE
How did you enjoy all those nationally and globally-televised, robust debates put on by public health officials, and broadcast simultaneously on every major news station?
Wasn’t it great hearing from the best minds in medicine, virology, epidemiology, economics, and vaccinology from all over the world as they vigorously and respectfully debated things like:
Lockdowns, Mask wearing, Social-distancing, Vaccine efficacy and safety trials.
How to screen for susceptibility to vaccine injury
Therapeutics, (i.e. non-vaccine treatment options)
Wasn’t it great seeing public health officials (who never treated anyone with covid) have their “science” questioned.
Wasn’t it great seeing the FDA panel publicly grill the vaccine makers in prime time as they stood in the hot-seat of tough questions about products of which they have no liability?
Oh, wait…you didn’t see those debates?
No, you didn’t…because they never happened.
17: 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.
Geert Vanden Bossche, explains:
Why the covid vaccine may be putting so much pressure on the virus that we are accelerating it’s ability to mutate and become more deadly.
Why the covid vaccines may be creating vaccine-resistant viruses (similar to anti-biotic resistant bacteria).
Why, because of previous problems with Antibody Dependent Enhancement, we may be looking at a mass casualty event in the next few months/years.
18: I ALREADY HAD COVID
I didn’t enjoy it.
In my body, and my household, covid is over.
That’s his list… now, to continue with our conversation:
Maybe you could also consider that each one of these vaccines uses fetal cells from an aborted baby in their production or testing (cogforlife.org/guidance). That the government or employer or school head or family member who tells you to take the vaccine or else you won’t be able to (insert course of action here) is asking you to give up your freedoms and has introduced an aspect of coercion into your relationship that goes directly against Article 7 of the United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which entered into force 45 years ago and which says:
“No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. In particular, no one shall be subjected without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation.”
That was derived from the Nuremberg Code – the one which was created in 1947 as a result of the trials of the Nazi doctors who had performed evil and abhorrent experiments on prisoners. That code which has become a critical document in medical ethics in research.
Item one of the code reads (with my emphasis):
The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.
This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision.
This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.
The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.
Item two of the code reads (again with my emphasis):
The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.
Considering that the Food & Drug Administration of the US considers an Emergency Use Authorization to also include (my emphasis):
“…the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.”
This really makes me wonder why there was so much noise being made against HCQ, Ivermectin and Artemesia Annua in the early days when it would have been very possible to simply look at their effectiveness and make them available for use. After all, it was supposed to be a crisis where billions of lives were in danger. Why invest in an unproven vaccine that only reduces symptoms for a survivable disease when prophylaxes for the disease and treatments were actually available in the first place in already existing and approved medical products? Particularly if this is all really about saving lives. Results… procurable by other methods or means of study and not random and unnecessary in nature.
Anyway, I have talked much. There’s much more to say, about things people are reporting of their own personal experiences with the vaccine… but let me leave you with that else this will become a book.
