Did McDonald’s Lose Toxic Meat Legal Battle With Jamie Oliver?!

Did McDonald’s just lose its legal battle against Jamie Oliver over its toxic pink slime meat?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : McDonald’s Loses Legal Battle With Jamie Oliver!

People are claiming on social media that McDonald’s just lost its legal battle against British chef Jamie Oliver over its toxic pink slime meat!

Keep it Real : [McDonald’s loses the legal battle with chef Jamie Oliver, who proved that the food they sell is not fit to be ingested because it is highly toxic.

Chef Jamie Oliver has won a battle against the world’s largest junk food chain. Oliver proving how buyers are made.

Truth : McDonald’s Did Not Lose Legal Battle With Jamie Oliver!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on WhatsApp, and social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter), and Facebook, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : There Was No McDonald’s – Jamie Oliver Lawsuit

Let me start by pointing out that there was no legal battle between McDonald’s and Jamie Oliver. McDonald’s did not sue Jamie Oliver, and Jamie Oliver also did not sue McDonald’s.

Fact #2 : Jamie Oliver Did Not Target McDonald’s

Jamie Oliver did not actually target McDonald’s. So there is really no reason for McDonald’s or Jamie Oliver to sue one another.

In the episode of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution that aired on 12 April 2011, Jamie Oliver spoke out against Lean Finely Textured Beef (LFTB), which he derisively referred to as “pink slime”.

Fact #3 : Jamie Oliver Did Not “Discover” Pink Slime

While much has been made about Jamie Oliver’s “battle” against pink slime, he did not create that term, and he wasn’t even amongst the first to speak out against LFTB, which has been sold since 2001.

The term “pink slime” was reportedly coined by USDA microbiologist Gerald Zirstein in a 2002 email to his colleagues. He was, arguably, also the first to criticise LFTB.

I do not consider the stuff to be ground beef, and I consider allowing it in ground beef to be a form of fraudulent labeling.

Michael Moss from The New York Times posted not one article, but at least two articles on the safety of LFTB – on 3 October 2009, and then on 30 December 2009,.

Two years later, ABC News would air a series of reports on LFTB in March 2011. It was only after the extensive coverage by ABC News that Jamie Oliver actually featured LFTB on his show.

Fact #4 : LFTB Is Ammonia-Treated Beef Paste

Despite its gross sounding name and look, LFTB is simply meat that has been separated from the fat in beef trimmings, and treated with ammonia to kill pathogens like Salmonella and E. coli.

The LFTB technology basically recovers meat that would otherwise be wasted and thrown away. Think of LFTB as low-fat beef paste. Regular ground beef consists of about 30% fat, while LFTB only has about 5% fat.

Fact #5 : McDonald’s Stopped Using LFTB In 2011

McDonald’s announced on 31 January 2012, that it stopped adding Lean Finely Textured Beef (LFTB) to its burgers since the beginning of 2011, and that it was no longer available in its products since August 2011:

At the beginning of 2011, we made a decision to discontinue the use of ammonia-treated beef in our hamburgers. This product has been out of our supply chain since August of last year. This decision was a result of our efforts to align our global standards for how we source beef around the world.

In other words – McDonald’s made the decision to stop using LFTB in its burgers in early 2011 – months before ABC News or Jamie Oliver covered LFTB. It was only in August 2011 that all of its LFTB-based products were cleared out of its supply chain.

Fact #7 : Ammonia In LFTB Isn’t Toxic

Even though McDonald’s no longer uses “pink slime” in their burgers, I should point out that the amount of ammonia used in LFTB isn’t dangerous.

The amount of ammonia present in Lean Finely Textured Beef (LFTB) is actually comparable to ammonia levels present in existing foods:

Food Ammonia Level
American Cheese 813 ppm
Unblended LFTB 400-500 ppm
Ketchup 411 ppm
Onions 342 ppm
Blended Beef Patty
with 15% LFTB
200 ppm
Ground Beef 101 ppm

Ammonium hydroxide isn’t just used to treat LFTB meat trimmings, it is also used to produce a wide variety of foods like cheese, puddings, chocolate, and even as a leavening agent in bread. In fact, the ammonium hydroxide is classified as GRAS (Generally Recognised as Safe) by the US FDA, when used in appropriate concentrations.

Fact #8 : LFTB Uses Ammonium Hydroxide Gas

In his viral video, Jamie Oliver is seen showing a front loading washing machine filled with meat, with ammonia-based cleaning products in the background. He then pours from a bottle marked with “Ammonia” and a skull and crossbones symbol into a large tub filled with pieces of beef.

That is not an accurate reflection of how LFTB products are made, because the ammonium hydroxide used in the LFTB process is gaseous, not liquid. In addition, the LFTB process only uses the ammonium hydroxide gas to increase the pH of the separated meat trimmings, from 5.7 to 9.6 (source).

If there ever is a lawsuit over that Jamie Oliver video, he would be hard-pressed to explain how that demonstration accurately replicates how LFTB meat is really produced.

Did Pfizer Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History?!

Did Pfizer just admit that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are the deadliest drug in history?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Pfizer Calls mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that Pfizer just admitted that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are the deadliest drug in history!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is long and (intentionally?) rambling. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Covid Vaccines Are Officially Deadliest Drug In History and Nobody Is Allowed to Talk About It

Recommended : Did WEF Just Admit Disease X Will Be Leaked In 2025?!

 

Truth : Pfizer Did Not Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pfizer Did Not Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History

This is really silly, but let me start by pointing out that Pfizer never said / admitted / called the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines the deadliest drug in history.

The People’s Voice article certainly offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim. Did it include a link to a Pfizer statement? A quote by Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla whose visage featured prominently in their video cover?

Nope. Zilch. Nada. Not a single shred of evidence that Pfizer ever called the mRNA vaccines the “deadliest drug in history”.

Fact #2 : FDA Released Pfizer Documents

The People’s Voice article claimed that Pfizer released documents “admitting the unprecedented carnage caused by their product”. That’s not true – Pfizer did not release any documents.

It was the US FDA that was releasing those Pfizer documents under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) group.

Fact #3 : FDA Released Pfizer 5.3.6 Document In 2021

The People’s Voice article claimed that the Pfizer 5.3.6 document was “dropped on April Fools Day 2022”, but that’s not exactly true either.

The Pfizer 5.3.6 Postmarketing Experience document was first released by the FDA to the PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) group, with three small pieces of information redacted on 17 November 2021.

The FDA later decided that the redacted information were not confidential after all, and reissued the same document in full on 1 April 2022. You can read more about this here.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Vaccine Documents Reveal 1,291 Side Effects?!

Fact #4 : Pfizer 5.3.6 Deaths + Injuries Were Not Vaccine-Linked

The People’s Voice video pointed out that the Pfizer 5.3.6 document appears to list 42,086 injuries, and 1,223 deaths. That’s not accurate.

The deaths and injuries listed in the Pfizer 5.3.6 document were not linked to the mRNA vaccine, because it was based on the “List of Adverse Events of Special Interest” (AESI).

This AESI list is not a list of side effects caused by the Pfizer mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Rather, it is a list of adverse events that Pfizer must look for post-vaccination case reports. As the Pfizer document noted on Page 16 (with my emphasis in bold) :

The AESI terms are incorporated into a TME list and include events of interest due to their association with severe COVID-19 and events of interest for vaccines in general.

Pfizer also pointed out that this adverse event evaluation is different (distinct) from the safety evaluation of its COVID-19 vaccine.

This is distinct from safety signal evaluations which are conducted and included, as appropriate, in the Summary Monthly Safety Reports submitted regularly to the FDA and other Health Authorities.

Claiming that these are vaccine side effects is like pointing to a list of prosecutable crimes in a legislation, and calling it a list of crimes the government actually committed. That’s how stupid it really is.

Fact #5 : Adverse Events Are Not Side Effects

I should now point out that adverse events are not necessarily side effects. Adverse events are “unfavourable” or “unintended” events that happen after vaccination or taking a drug, like having an anaphylactic reaction or getting into a car accident.

All reported adverse events have to be investigated to find out if they are related (anaphylactic reaction) or not (getting into a car accident) to the vaccine or drug that was taken.

Even if an adverse event was “possibly caused” by the vaccine, it must still be confirmed that the vaccine directly caused it, because an anaphylactic reaction (for example) can also occur from a bee sting, or an existing peanut allergy.

Only once an adverse event is confirmed to be caused by the vaccine, is it then a vaccine side effect. Otherwise, it is merely an adverse event, not a side effect.

Fact #6 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

FDA Now Allows Experiments On People Without Consent?!

Does the FDA now allow medical experiments on people without their knowledge or informed consent?!

Take a look at the viral claim by US Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA Now Allows Experiments On People Without Consent!

People are sharing a series of posts (here, here, here, and here) on X (formerly Twitter) by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who claimed or suggested that the FDA just issued a new ruling allowing clinical trials to be conducted on people without their knowledge or informed consent!

New FDA ruling exempts clinical trials with “minimal risk” from informed consent. That means that researchers can experiment on you without your knowledge or permission, so long as they claim that what they are testing is “safe.”

This is a direct violation of the Nuremberg Code.

Can you think of any therapy that all the experts agreed was perfectly safe, but turned out not to be?

This opens the door for testing of new “medicines” via the water supply or aerosolized spraying. It wouldn’t be the first time. To name one example of many, the U.S. army tested germ warfare dispersion in the NYC subway in 1966.

Recommended : Did FDA change law to allow medical research without consent?!

 

Truth : FDA Has Long Allowed Some Experiments On People Without Consent!

This is yet another example of MISINFORMATION created / spread by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Medical Research Without Consent Was Permitted Since 1991

Let me just start by pointing out that the the FDA has permitted “minimal risk” medical research without informed consent since 18 June 1991, when the Common Rule was issued (Federal Register archive PDF).

At that time, the Common Rule had four criteria for the waiver or alteration of informed consent for minimal risk research. It was then revised on 19 January 2017, to add a fifth criteria – “[i]f the research involves using identifiable private information or identifiable biospecimens, the research could not practicably be carried out without using such information or biospecimens in an identifiable format”.

So the claim by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. that it was a recent 21 December 2023 FDA ruling (PDF) called “Institutional Review Board Waiver or Alteration of Informed Consent for Minimal Risk Clinical Investigations” that exempts “minimal risk” clinical trials from informed consent is false.

This was specifically mentioned in Section III A. of the FDA ruling, so it is odd that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. would make such a claim.

Fact #2 : Final FDA Rule Has Strict Limits

The new FDA rule basically allows Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) to decide on the waiver or alteration of informed consent for “certain minimal risk clinical investigations”.

FDA is issuing this final rule to permit an IRB waiver or alteration of informed consent in limited circumstances, consistent with the Cures Act. We believe that this rule will both safeguard the rights, safety, and welfare of human subjects and enable minimal risk clinical investigations that may facilitate medical advances and promote public health.

To be clear – the FDA is not simply waiving the need for informed consent where researchers can simply “claim that what they are testing is safe“. Such medical research have to be approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB).

Recommended : Did FDA just admit Pfizer vaccine has Graphene Oxide?!

Fact #3 : Informed Consent Waiver Only Permitted For Minimal Risk

In addition, I should point out that IRBs are only allowed to grant or alter informed consent waivers for research that meet FDA’s definition of “minimal risk”:

“Minimal risk” means that the probability and magnitude of harm or discomfort anticipated in the research are not greater in and of themselves than those ordinarily encountered in daily life or during the performance of routine physical or psychological examinations or tests.

In short – the new FDA rule strictly limits the waiver or alteration of informed consent only to “minimal risk” research in which the subjects are not exposed to harm or discomfort that they would not normally experience in their daily life, or routine examinations.

It would therefore not be possible to get IRB approval for the “testing of new medicines via the water supply or aerolized spraying” as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. suggested.

Fact #4 : FDA Amended Its Rules To Comply With Law

The FDA isn’t simply creating this new rule for fun. It was more or less compelled to do so by the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act), which was was signed into law by President Barack Obama on 16 December 2016.

Amongst its provisions were Section 3024, which specifically amended sections 505(i)(4) and 520(g)(3) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 355(i)(4) and 360j(g)(3)) to “provide FDA with the authority to permit an exception from informed consent requirements when the proposed clinical testing poses no more than minimal risk to the human subject and includes appropriate safeguards to protect the rights, safety, and welfare of the human subject”.

In addition, Section 3023 of the Cures Act directs the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to “harmonize differences between the HHS Human Subject Regulations and the FDA Human Subject Regulations,” to the extent practicable and consistent with other statutory provisions.

In short – the US FDA was only issuing its final ruling based on the Cures Act, which was enacted by Congress and signed into law by President Obama.

Recommended : Did US FDA Just Ban Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines?!

Fact #5 : FDA Amendment Was Open For Public Comment

It is odd that concerned citizens like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. are only now complaining about the FDA rule amendment, when it was open for public comment years ago!

The FDA issued the proposed rule changes in the Federal Register of 15 November 2018, and asked the public to submit any electronic or written comments to the proposed rule changes by 15 January 2019.

In the end, the FDA received fewer than 50 comment letters from the academia, Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), public advocacy groups, industry, trade organizations, public health organizations, individuals, and other organizations.

Where were these concerned citizens when the FDA asked for their comments, before making its decision on the final rule?

FDA Just Quietly, Deceitfully Changed Law To Allow ‘Medical Research Without Consent’

Recommended : Did FDA just admit Pfizer vaccine has Graphene Oxide?!

 

Truth : FDA Did Not Change Law To Allow Medical Research Without Consent!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : FDA Did Not Change Any Law

The People’s Voice article claimed that the US FDA just amended the 21st Century Cures Act to allow “medical research without consent” in certain situations. That’s simply not true, and is easily proven false.

All you have to do is read the FDA’s final ruling on the “Institutional Review Board Waiver or Alteration of Informed Consent for Minimal Risk Clinical Investigations“.

As the summary at the top explained, the FDA was amending its own regulations (not any law), to implement a provision of the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act).

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA, the Agency, or we) is issuing a final rule to amend its regulations to implement a provision of the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act).

The People’s Voice article provided the same link, so it is certainly aware of what it actually said.

Fact #2 : Congress Enacts Laws, Not Agencies

For the benefit of people who are not aware of how laws are enacted or amended in the United States, I should point out that Congress is the legislative branch of the US government.

Established by Article 1 of the US Constitution, the Legislative Branch consists of the House of Representatives, and the Senate. Together, they are known as the United States Congress.

Only the US Congress that has the power to enact and/or amend laws in the United States of America. Not the executive branch, or the judicial branch. Certainly not government agencies like the FDA, which fall under the executive branch.

Fact #3 : Cures Act Permitted FDA Amendment In 2016

The 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act) was signed into law by then President Barack Obama on 16 December 2016.

Amongst its provisions were Section 3024, which specifically amended sections 505(i)(4) and 520(g)(3) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 355(i)(4) and 360j(g)(3)) to “provide FDA with the authority to permit an exception from informed consent requirements when the proposed clinical testing poses no more than minimal risk to the human subject and includes appropriate safeguards to protect the rights, safety, and welfare of the human subject”.

Fact #6 : Amendment Does Not Affect Informed Consent For Vaccinations

The People’s Voice article suggested that the removal of consent for minimal risk medical research may eventually spill over to allowing people to be injected without informed consent. That’s simply not true.

Not only was the FDA ruling an amendment of existing rules which have permitted minimal risk without informed consent since 1991, it has nothing to do with informed consent for medical treatments and/or vaccinations.

The FDA final ruling cannot be used to void the need for informed consent for any medical treatment and/or injections of drugs and vaccines. The People’s Voice article certainly offered no evidence to back up its claims or suggestions.

Can Foreign DNA In mRNA Vaccines Change Our DNA?!

Can foreign DNA enter our cells through mRNA vaccines, and change our DNA and humanity forever?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Foreign DNA In mRNA Vaccines Can Change Our DNA!

People are sharing a video clip of Tucker Carlson interviewing Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, which claims or suggestions that foreign DNA can enter our cells through the mRNA vaccines and change our DNA and humanity forever!

Tucker Carlson : Could foreign DNA enter your cells through the mRNA COVID vax and change your DNA — and humanity itself — forever? Sounds nutty. It’s not. “Absolutely that could happen,” says Dr. Joseph Ladapo, the surgeon general of Florida. A shocking conversation.

Recommended : Can Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Change Our DNA?!

 

Truth : Foreign DNA In mRNA Vaccines Cannot Change Our DNA!

Let’s take a closer look at these claims about foreign DNA fragments in mRNA vaccines changing our DNA, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Ladapo Claims Were Refuted By FDA Earlier

First, I should point out that Joseph Ladapo’s claims about foreign DNA fragments changing our DNA have already been refuted by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on 14 December 2023 (PDF).

Here’s a quick summary of what Dr. Peter Marks, Director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research replied to Ladapo’s claims:

  1. After a “thorough assessment of the entire manufacturing process, FDA is confident in the quality, safety, and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines“.
  2. No safety concerns regarding “residual DNA” were identified after over a billion doses of mRNA vaccines being administered.
  3. Animal studies using the mRNA vaccine with residual DNA demonstrated “no evidence for genotoxicity from the vaccine“.
  4. Pharmacovigilance data from hundreds of millions of vaccinated people also showed “no evidence” of genotoxicity from the mRNA vaccines.
  5. Reproductive toxicology studies to test the possible integration of residual DNA fragments in reproductive cells found “no concerns” with the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

As you can see, the FDA had already addressed Ladapo’s claims about testing the mRNA vaccines for DNA integration.

The FDA reply (PDF) was also succinct – just two pages long, and did not divert to irrelevant topics like “what time the sun sets in China” or “their third cousin’s Bar Mitzvah” as Ladapo claims in the Tucker Carlson interview.

So the question you should be asking is – why is Joseph Ladapo still flogging these claims, when the FDA has clearly stated that tests were conducted on mRNA vaccines, and have shown them to be safe and effective, and that they do not pose any DNA integration (genotoxicity) risks?

Recommended : Are mRNA Vaccines Contaminated With SV40 DNA?!

Fact #2 : FDA Guidelines Were For DNA Vaccines

In the Tucker Carlson interview, Ladapo claimed or suggested that the FDA did not mention its own guidance on DNA contamination. That’s not true.

The FDA letter to Ladapo (PDF) actually addressed his claims, pointing out that the guidance (PDF) only applied to DNA vaccines, not mRNA vaccines. Even the name clearly states that the guidance was meant for DNA vaccines.

In your letter, you raise questions, citing to the 2007 Guidance for Industry: Considerations for Plasmid DNA Vaccines for Infectious Disease Indications. This guidance was developed for DNA vaccines themselves, not for DNA as a contaminant in other vaccines, and is not applicable to the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

DNA vaccines work by introducing a DNA sequence into the cell nucleus, so DNA contamination would be a real concern. In contrast, mRNA vaccines do not enter the cell nucleus, so DNA contamination isn’t a real concern.

It is unknown if Ladapo understands the difference between DNA and mRNA vaccines. But it’s clear that the FDA already informed him that the guidance he quoted was not relevant.

It’s like a bit like quoting the manual for a motorcycle as “evidence” that his diesel truck only needs two wheels, instead of four. So why does he still persist in mentioning the FDA guidance?

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Fact #3 : Smaller Fragments Are Harder To Filter

Ladapo claims that there are billions to hundreds of billions of foreign DNA fragments in each dose of the mRNA vaccine. That sounds scary, doesn’t it? The truth is – it’s really a red herring.

The DNA fragments in mRNA vaccines are produced as a result of its manufacturing process using a DNA template. After the DNA template creates the mRNA vaccine, DNAse is used to break down the residual DNA into tiny fragments.

Focusing on the number of these DNA fragments is also wrong, as you want the DNAse enzyme to really do a good job and cut up the residual DNA into tiny pieces. Naturally, the more you cut DNA up into smaller fragments, you get more (but smaller) fragments. It is consequently harder to filter these smaller fragments out, but the smaller they are, the less likely they are biologically active.

Think of residual DNA as parts of the mRNA factory that was dismantled once the vaccine was manufactured. If you chop it up real good, you get nothing more than small pieces of scrap metal. Sure, the disposal team may have left a couple of bolts and screws lying on the floor, but can they be used to recreate the factory? No.

Fact #4 : mRNA Vaccines Meet DNA Fragment Limit

Instead of focusing on the “number” of DNA fragments, it makes much more sense to focus on the “total weight” of residual DNA, and the “size” of those fragments.

Currently, the WHO and US FDA guidelines recommend that residual DNA in vaccines and other biological products should not exceed 10 nanograms (ng) per purified dose, and the DNA fragments should be no greater than 200 bp in length.

Even that limit appears to be out of an abundance of caution, as studies have not shown any actual danger from residual DNA, as they are tiny fragments.

In its December 2023 reply (PDF), the FDA actually pointed out to Ladapo that the amount of residual DNA fragments was less than 1/1000 the amount of mRNA in each vaccine dose.

The specification for the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines for residual DNA following DNAse treatment results in the presence of DNA fragments at a quantity that is less than three orders of magnitude lower than the quantity of the RNA dose by weight.

This has been determined (and continues to be determined during production of lots) with a validated quantitative PCR assay.

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

Fact #5 : DNA Fragments Can’t Integrate With Our Genome

The presence of residual DNA fragments does not mean that they will integrate into our genome. For one thing – these are DNA fragments that have been broken down by the DNase enzyme.

These DNA fragments can only enter the cell nucleus if there is an enzyme called integrase, is not present in any COVID-19 vaccine. So they simply cannot enter the cell nucleus, never mind integrate with DNA.

On top of that, the mRNA vaccines are injected into the muscle, whose cells are “post-mitotic”, which means they are no longer able to change.

Fact #6 : Viruses Integrate With Cell DNA

Viruses like SARS-CoV-2 and HIV-1 (diagram below) integrate their genes with the host cell DNA, to hijack the cell and use it to produce copies of itself.

You can see how a typical RNA virus would infect a host cell, convert its RNA into DNA which is moved into the cell nucleus using the integrase enzyme.

Once inside, the viral DNA integrates with the host cell DNA, which gets transcribed into instructions for the cell to produce copies of the virus.

This is the same way how the SARS-CoV-2 virus infects our cells, to produce copies of itself to infect even more cells.

If you are truly worried about anything modifying your cell’s DNA, you should try to avoid viral infections like COVID-19. Better still – vaccinate yourself, and get protected against COVID-19!

Colombian Health Minister Walks Back Antivax Comments!

Colombian Health Minister Guillermo Alfonso Jaramillo just walked back his “anti-vaccine” comments!

Take a look at what he said, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Colombian Health Minister Slams COVID Vaccines!

People are sharing a video, which shows the Colombian Health Minister, Guillermo Alfonso Jaramillo, calling the COVID-19 vaccines “experimental”

aussie17 : 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨💥💥Wow!!
Health Minister of Colombia, Guillermo Alfonso Jaramillo slams experimental vaccine in an astonishing outburst!

————————————
We are playing with the lives of Colombians, we cannot be a factor of experimentation. All of us who are vaccinated today, today, with the exception of those who took Sinovac,

I have three from Sinovac, all the new technology is a technology and all the vaccines entered here without permission, we went and became an experiment.

All Colombians who are vaccinated served for the largest experiment that has been carried out in the entire history of humanity.

We cannot continue experimenting with the Colombian community, much less with the indigenous people, with the blacks and with the poorest of this country, with the peasants.

Colombian Health Minister Walks Back Antivax Comments!

What you may not realise is that the Colombian Health Minister quickly walked back his “anti-vaccine” comments. Here is what you need to know…

Fact #1 : Viral Video Appears Legitimate

The video appears to be legitimate, and recorded during a political control debate in the First Commission of the Colombian Senate on Tuesday, 28 November 2023.

In that video, Guillermo Alfonso Jaramillo – the Minister of Health and Social Protection of Colombia – claimed that Colombians were vaccinated against COVID-19 as part of the “largest experiment in history”, referring to the approval and use of mRNA vaccines before their full approval by regulatory agencies like the FDA and EMA.

Fact #2 : Guillermo Jaramillo Walked Back His Antivax Comments

After the Minister’s video went viral, organisations like the Association of Epidemiology of Colombia expressed their disagreement with his claims. They pointed out that his comments contradict scientific evidence, and will jeopardise trust in COVID-19 vaccines.

Guillermo Jaramillo then officially responded to the criticism, clarifying that he was only referring to the “experimental phase” that mRNA vaccines went through. He also affirmed his “consistent support for vaccination“, and emphasised the importance of “timely vaccination” and the “completion of vaccination schemes“.

Colombian President Gustavo Pedro also defended the Health Minister, labelling accusations that Jaramillo is “anti-vaccine” as “slander”.

Recommended : New DARPA Docs Confirm COVID-19 Was Created In China?!

Fact #3 : mRNA Vaccines Are No Longer Experimental

mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna underwent and passed large clinical trials, and received their Emergency Use Authorisations (EUA) in December 2020.

Regardless of what people claim – the mRNA vaccines were no longer experimental, once they received their EUA.

There are some differences between an EUA and a full FDA approval, but the EUA means the vaccines have officially been approved for use by the health regulator.

While Guillermo Jaramillo suggested that the Sinovac vaccine is not “new technology”, it is still a new vaccine that underwent the same clinical trials as the mRNA vaccines. I should point out that the Sinovac vaccine never received EUA or full authorisation from Western health regulators like the US FDA or EMA.

Fact #4 : mRNA Vaccines Received Their Full FDA Approval

In any case, the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna received their full FDA approval on 23 August 2021, and 31 January 2022 respectively.

So there is really no reason for anyone to claim that these mRNA vaccines are still experimental. Even if you “believe” that the mRNA vaccines were “experimental” until they received full regulatory approval, we crossed that bridge a long time ago.

To be clear – the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna have long ceased to be experimental.

Fact #5 : mRNA Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

No vaccine or drug is perfectly safe, or perfectly effective. But the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna have proven to be safe and effective for the vast majority of people.

Not only did they pass their large clinical trials with flying colours, post-marketing monitoring showed that they remained safe and effective for the vast majority of people after tens of billions of doses have been administered worldwide.

Yes, post-marketing monitoring have shown that the mRNA vaccines can cause rare side effects like myocarditis. But what anti-vaccine activists don’t tell you is that – the risk of developing myocarditis is much higher with COVID-19 infections!

Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Are residual DNA impurities in mRNA vaccines dangerous, and can they integrate into our DNA?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Are Dangerous!

Anti-vaccine activists are sharing and/or promoting an article by The Epoch Times, which claimed / suggested that residual DNA in mRNA vaccines are dangerous, and can potentially integrate into our DNA!

Here is an excerpt from that article by The Epoch Times:

Billions of Copies of Residual DNA in a Single Dose of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine: Preprint

Recommended : Are mRNA Vaccines Contaminated With SV40 DNA?!

 

No Evidence Residual DNA In Vaccines Are Dangerous

Let’s take a closer look at these claims about Residual DNA in vaccines, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : mRNA Vaccines Were Proven Safe + Effective

First, I should point out that the mRNA vaccines underwent large clinical trials before they received their Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA), and even after that, they continue to be monitored for safety and efficacy.

So health regulators and health authorities are well-aware of how safe and effective the mRNA vaccines are. That’s why new mRNA vaccines continue to be approved by health regulators around the world.

Fact #2 : Residual DNA Is Not New

These papers and articles may suggest that residual DNA is a new kind of contaminant, or one that is only found in mRNA vaccines. Neither are true.

Residual DNA is found in all vaccines and biological products manufactured in any kind of cell. The risk of residual DNA has also been investigated for about 60 years now.

To be clear – residual DNA isn’t new, and it is a byproduct of using cells to produce biologicals, and not part of mRNA vaccine technology.

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #3 : No Evidence Residual DNA Is Dangerous

In the beginning, some studies raised potential safety issues with residual DNA. So, the FDA set an upper limit of just 10 picograms of residual DNA per medicinal dose in 1985.

In 1986, a WHO study group looked into new cell substrates that are being used to produce biological products, and concluded that the risk is negligible when the amount of residual DNA is 100 picograms per dose.

Then 10 years later – the WHO Expert Committee on Biological Standardization (ECBS) increased the limit to 10 nanograms (ng) per purified dose, albeit not for microbial, diploid, or primary cell cultures.

In 1997, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said that further data of DNA from continuous mammalian cell lines showed that it poses even less risk than previously thought.

Currently, the WHO and US FDA guidelines recommend that residual DNA in vaccines and other biological products should not exceed 10 nanograms (ng) per purified dose, and the DNA fragments should be no greater than 200 bp in length.

Even that limit appears to be out of an abundance of caution, as studies have not shown any actual danger from residual DNA, as they are tiny fragments.

Fact #4 : Residual DNA Is Fragmented Into Tiny Pieces

The production of mRNA vaccines at scale do not use any animal cells, but is done through in vitro transcription (IVT). The enzyme DNase is then used to destroy the DNA template and polymerase used in the reaction, and further filtration can be performed to reduce the amount of DNA fragments.

In other words – the DNA used to produce the mRNA vaccines are broken into tiny pieces, and most of it is filtered out. Think of the remnants as pieces of scrap metal left over from a dismantled chemical factory.

Sure, the workers left a ton of scrap metal pieces behind, but so what? The scrap metal may be an eyesore, but it’s not going to give you cancer, or turn you into Spiderman!

In short – there is no evidence that these tiny fragments of DNA will integrate into your genome, or cause your cells to become cancerous.

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

Fact #5 : mRNA Vaccines Meet Residual DNA Limits

The David J Speicher et al. preprint (which has not yet peer-reviewed) actually showed that the amount of residual DNA “contamination” was far below FDA regulatory limits.

As Professor David Gorski noted, the study authors found that the residual DNA in the mRNA vaccines was far below regulatory limits, and used a logarithmic scale to make them appear much closer to the limit than they really are:

Basically, by the authors’ own measurements, the amount of DNA/vial fell below the FDA guidance of 10 ng DNA/dose.

Did you also notice the little trick they did? They used a log scale to make the total DNA appear to be much closer to the FDA-recommended limit than it really is.

For instance, in all the Moderna vials, the amount of DNA isn’t half of the recommended limit, it’s less than one-tenth the recommended limit, and, in the case of the ori sequence, well under 1/100 of the limit.

The abstract itself even notes that the authors found DNA at “0.28 – 4.27 ng/dose and 0.22 – 2.43 ng/dose (Pfizer), and 0.01 -0.34 ng/dose and 0.25 – 0.78 ng/dose (Moderna), for ori and spike respectively measured by qPCR.”

So, from McKernan and Rose’s own data, the vial with the very highest concentration of DNA was one Pfizer vial that had less than one-half the maximum DNA amount recommended by the FDA, while the Moderna vial with the most plasmid DNA contamination had less than one-tenth the maximum recommended by the FDA.

In short – even the much touted Speicher preprint itself showed that the amount of residual DNA in mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are far below regulatory limits.

The whole controversy is really much ado about nothing. What a bloody waste of time!

Perhaps that’s why they are repackaging the drama in terms of “billions of copies of residual DNA”, instead of just telling us about the actual quantity they found.

The truth is – there are billions of fragments because the DNA was chopped up pretty damn small to ensure that it would pose no threat. And because the fragments so small, it’s pretty impossible to filter them all out.

Recommended : Did Health Canada Confirm SV40 DNA In Pfizer Vaccine?!

Fact #6 : VAERS Reports Are Unverified

Hilariously, the Speicher et al. preprint suggested that mRNA vaccine vials with higher doses of residual DNA correlated with more adverse reactions, as reported in the Vaccine Adverse Reaction Reports System (VAERS).

As I pointed out many times before, VAERS data is unverified, and notoriously susceptible to abuse, and false reporting. That’s because it’s an open system that anyone – not just doctors, can report anything they want.

In addition, the reports may be duplicated and have not been verified to be related to the vaccine or drug in question. Hence, VAERS specifically warns against using its reports to reach any conclusion about the risks or safety of vaccines / drugs in question.

But that is precisely why anti-vaccination activists love using VAERS data – it’s unverified, and very susceptible to abuse and false reporting.

Fact #7 : Study Showed Fewer Adverse Events With More DNA Fragments!

Even more hilariously, the Speicher et al. preprint actually showed that the detection of more DNA fragments (as determined by Qubit fluorometry) correlated with fewer serious adverse events (SAEs).

In other words – this study has inadvertently “proven” that getting mRNA vaccines with more residual DNA will result in fewer adverse effects!

I meant that only in jest, because the study simply does not prove any correlation. It’s just asinine to even attempt to correlate unverified VAERS reports with quantity of residual DNA fragments in any vaccine.

FDA To Ban BVO – A Stabiliser Used In Soft Drinks!

The US FDA just proposed a ban of BVO – brominated vegetable oil – a potentially toxic stabiliser used in soft drinks!

 

FDA To Ban BVO – A Stabiliser Used In Soft Drinks!

On Thursday, 2 November 2023, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally moved to revoke its authorisation for BVO – brominated vegetable oil – a stabiliser mostly used in soft drinks.

BVO is a vegetable oil that has been modified by bromine, a pungent and oily chemical, to create an emulsifier that keeps the citrus flavouring in fruit beverages from separating and floating to the top.

BVO has long been banned in Europe and Japan over health safety concerns, but was permitted to be used in the United States, at up to 15 parts per million.

While many beverage makers have already reformulated their drinks to replace BVO with other stabilisers, about 90 food products in the United States – mostly sodas, still use brominated vegetable oil. This was partly due to FDA’s past restrictions, and the ban on BVO in Europe and Japan:

In 1970, the FDA determined BVO was no longer ‘Generally Recognized as Safe’ … and began overseeing its use under our food additive regulations.

Over the years many beverage makers reformulated their products to replace BVO with an alternative ingredient, and today, few beverages in the U.S. contain BVO.

– James Jones, FDA Deputy Commissioner for Human Foods

The proposed ban is not yet a certainty. The FDA is opening up the proposed ban for public comments until January 17, 2024. That will be followed by a review process, before a final decision is made.

However, the publicity of this potential ban by the FDA will steer consumers away from soft drinks still containing BVO, and encourage brands to reformulate their products to replace brominated vegetable oil with an alternative stabiliser.

Recommended : Viral Video Proves Japanese Food Is Radioactive?!

 

Why The FDA Is Finally Planning To Ban BVO

The FDA decision came after California banned the BVO in October, with the passing of the California Food Safety Act. But officially – the FDA came to its conclusion based on studies that showed bioaccumulation of bromine, and its toxic effects on the thyroid:

The FDA conducted studies that clearly show adverse health effects in animals in levels more closely approximating real-world exposure. Therefore, the FDA can no longer conclude that this use of BVO in food is safe.

The studies were conducted in collaboration with the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences’ (NIEHS) Division of Translational Toxicology (formerly the Division of the National Toxicology Program), to assess unresolved toxicological questions. Results from these studies demonstrate bioaccumulation of bromine and toxic effects on the thyroid – a gland that produces hormones that play a key role in regulating blood pressure, body temperature, heart rate, metabolism and the reaction of the body to other hormones.

Recommended : Yasuhiro Sonoda Died After Drinking Fukushima Water?!

Those studies were conducted between 2016 and 2022. Initially, they started to more accurately measure the amount of BVO in commercial soft drinks. Then they studied the health effects of BVO in test rats, and the study results showed toxic effects on the thyroid:

Between 2016 and 2020, the FDA published improved methods to more accurately measure the amount of BVO in commercial soft drinks on the market and to measure small amounts of fats in vegetable oil. These research efforts enabled the development and validation of the method used in our later animal studies to detect the level of brominated fats in tissues of animals fed BVO.

On May 16, 2022, the FDA published a study in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology that evaluated potential health effects related to BVO consumption in rodents. The FDA measured the amounts of BVO present in the animal food and brominated fats in tissues from test animals. We also fed test animals amounts of BVO that simulate real-life exposure.

The data from the study suggest that oral exposure to BVO is associated with increased tissue levels of bromine and that at high levels of exposure the thyroid is a target organ of potential negative health effects in rodents. The agency also conducted a study to identify the level of BVO in the body after consumption of BVO.

The FDA concluded that after assessing existing animal and human data, together with the more recent FDA studies, it can no longer conclude that BVO is safe to use in food.

Needless to say – even if the FDA has not yet finalised the ban, we should all avoid any food products that contain BVO, even if they meet current regulations.

The complete SV40 virus was ELIMINATED from Polio vaccines during the 1950s and 1960s because of concerns about its association with CANCER.

Recommended : Did Health Canada Confirm SV40 DNA In Pfizer Vaccine?!

 

Truth : mRNA Vaccines Are Not Contaminated With SV40 DNA!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / propagated by anti-vaccine proponents, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : SV40 Promoter Is Not SV40 Virus

First, I should point out that gene promoters are DNA sequences that stimulate gene expression, and have long been used in molecular biology.

The SV40 promoter is a DNA sequence that was derived from the SV40 (Simian Virus 40) virus, and is not the same thing as the SV40 virus DNA. Think of it as a genetic tool obtained from the SV40 virus, just like how botulinum toxin is a treatment derived from the bacteria, Clostridium botulinum.

Finding botulinum toxin in a vial of Botox does not mean there is bacteria in that vial. Similarly, finding the SV40 promoter in the Pfizer vaccine does not mean there is SV40 virus in the vaccine.

According to Professor David Gorski, a professor of surgery and oncology at the Wayne State University School of Medicine, “the SV40 promoter-enhancer is often used in plasmids because it is a very strong promoter that can drive the production of lots of the desired mRNA encoded by the cDNA sequence attached to it.

Fact #2 : SV40 Promoter Is Not Dangerous

Michael Imperiale, a molecular biologist at the University of Michigan Medical School, explained that the SV40 promoter, on its own, can’t cause cancer. The part of SV40 that’s potentially cancer-causing, known as the T-antigen, isn’t present in the vaccine.

Even the scientist whose testimony to the South Carolina Senate has been used to drive this controversy, has come out to dismiss the concerns that the SV40 promoter is dangerous, or can cause cancer:

It’s just the volume knob that drives high level expression of anything put under its control, which in this case is just an antibiotic resistance marker.

The fear about the SV40 sequences is total nonsense. The vaccine is not going to cause cancer. There is no cancer causing gene in the vaccine.

– Phillip Buckhaults, director of the Cancer Genetics Lab at the University of South Carolina

Fact #3 : mRNA Vaccines Are Not Contaminated With SV40 Virus

To be clear – mRNA vaccines do not contain the SV40 virus, because they were manufactured using in vitro transcription (IVT) technology.

The presence of the SV40 virus in some of the polio vaccine manufactured from 1955-1963 occurred because that vaccine was manufactured in monkey kidney cell cultures that were contaminated with the SV40 virus.

Even then, decades later, there is still no conclusive evidence that the SV40 virus can cause cancers in humans. However, out of an abundance of caution, the SV40 virus is considered to potentially cause cancer in humans.

There is no evidence to indicate the presence of SV40, a virus found in monkey kidneys that can potentially cause cancer in humans, in the formulation of COVID-19 vaccines.

– Alessandro Faia, spokesperson for the European Medicines Agency (EMA)

Recommended : Is FDA Refusing To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

Fact #4 : Health Canada + EMA Confirm Residual DNA Meet Regulations

Health Canada actually wrote a detailed explanation (archive) of why DNA fragments are expected in mRNA vaccine manufacturing, and why the quantity in the vaccines is not a concern.

Plasmids are an essential starting material for the production of mRNA vaccines. During the downstream process in mRNA vaccine manufacturing, the plasmid DNA is digested with enzymes to small fragments, and further removed to a level of not more than 10 ng/human dose, which is in line with the World Health Organization’s recommendation concerning residual DNA in biological drugs. The DNA is digested with enzymes post-transcription.

Health Canada was aware of the presence of residual plasmid DNA as a process-related impurity during review and prior to the authorization of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. In addition, the release testing data for every COVID-19 vaccine lot released into the Canadian market were reviewed and deemed to meet the requirements approved by Health Canada. Furthermore, different assays assessing the same vaccine property, or even the same assay being performed in different laboratories, may generate different results.

It is important to assess the results using the authorized validated assays performed by the vaccine manufacturers to ensure that the quality of commercial vaccine lots are comparable to lots shown to be safe and efficacious in clinical studies.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) also concurred, stating that the SV40 sequence is considered “a non-functional part” of the DNA plasmid that was used to manufacture the mRNA vaccines:

We can confirm that an SV40 sequence is present in the DNA plasmid. The sequence is not directly relevant for plasmid production in E. coli or for the mRNA production process so it is considered to be a non-functional part of the structure of the source plasmid.

Specific sequences for the non-infectious parts of SV40 are commonly present in plasmids used for manufacturing of biological active substances. The sequence for non-infectious parts of SV40 is only a small fraction of the entire SV40 sequence.

While the full DNA sequence of the plasmid starting material was provided in the initial marketing authorisation application for Comirnaty, the applicant did not specifically highlight the SV40 sequence, as it was considered to be a non-functional part of the plasmid. They have since clarified this information in response to questions raised by EMA.

We would also like to point out that during the manufacturing process, this sequence and other plasmid DNA sequences are broken down and removed. Fragments of the SV40 sequence may only be present as residual impurities at very low levels that are routinely controlled.

In short – the mRNA vaccines meet regulatory limits for residual DNA. This isn’t new or shocking to Health Canada, or the EMA, or other regulatory agencies.

Recommended : Did CDC Say COVID Vaccines Cause AIDS + Cancer?!

Fact #5 : mRNA Vaccines Meet Residual DNA Limits

The production of mRNA vaccines at scale do not use any animal cells, but is done through in vitro transcription (IVT). The enzyme DNase is then used to destroy the DNA template and polymerase used in the reaction, and further filtration can be performed to reduce the amount of DNA fragments.

In Canada, the limit was set at 10 ng of DNA per dose, which is in line with WHO recommendations. According to Health Canada, the mRNA vaccines all comply with this requirement.

The David J Speicher et al. preprint (which has not yet peer-reviewed) actually showed that the amount of residual DNA “contamination” was far below FDA regulatory limits.

As Professor David Gorski noted, the study authors found that the residual DNA in the mRNA vaccines was far below regulatory limits, and used a logarithmic scale to make them appear much closer to the limit than they really are:

So, from McKernan and Rose’s own data, the vial with the very highest concentration of DNA was one Pfizer vial that had less than one-half the maximum DNA amount recommended by the FDA, while the Moderna vial with the most plasmid DNA contamination had less than one-tenth the maximum recommended by the FDA.

In short – even the much touted Speicher preprint itself showed that the amount of residual DNA in mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are far below regulatory limits.

The whole controversy is really much ado about nothing. What a bloody waste of time!

Fact #6 : Residual DNA Won’t Integrate Into Our Genome

The presence of residual DNA itself does not mean that they will integrate into our genome. For one thing – these are DNA fragments that have been broken down by the DNase enzyme.

Think of them as parts of a factory which were used to build the mRNA vaccine, but dismantled once the vaccine has been manufactured. Sure, the disposal team may have left a couple of bolts and screws lying on the floor, but can they be used to recreate the factory? No.

To be clear – neither the COVID-19 vaccines, not any residual DNA they may contain, can change our genome. On top of that, the vaccines are injected into the muscle, whose cells are “post-mitotic”, which means they are no longer able to change.

Fact #2 : FDA Did Not Ask To Fully Release Pfizer Vaccine Data By 2076

First, let me be clear – the US FDA did not ask to fully release the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine data only by the year 2076. In fact, as best as I could tell – the FDA never mentioned the date 2076.

That appears to be the “interpretation” of Aaron Siri, the lawyer working for PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) – the group requesting the data that the FDA used to licence the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

As you will see below, it appears to be based on ignoring facts and basic math…

Fact #3 : FDA Has To Redact Files Before They Are Released

It is not simply a matter of handing over the documents to PHMPT. The FDA has to go through every document and redact information that are exempt from disclosure under FOIA, before it can release them.

That process is not only time-consuming, it is resource-intensive because it requires government information specialists to review each page line-by-line.

The FDA estimated that it would take 8 minutes per page to read and review records for FOIA production.

Fact #4 : FDA Had 400 Other Pending FOIA Requests

The FOIA request by PHMPT is being handled by the Access Litigation and Freedom of Information Branch at the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER).

That is a small department with just ten employees, including the director and two trainees. So they really only had just seven people who were trained well enough to process FOIA requests.

At that time, that small team was processing “approximately 400 currently pending FOIA requests“, while being embroiled in “6 active FOIA litigation matters“.

Needless to say, the heavy workload greatly limits how many pages this office can go through and redact every month.

Fact #5 : PHMPT Demanded 329,000 Pages!

The FDA asked PHMPT to narrow their request by specifying records they don’t require, so they can focus on processing the important documents they need.

The PHMPT, however, insisted that the FDA process and deliver ALL documents related to the approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine – some 329,000 pages!

That would require a processing rate of over 80,000 pages per month – far in excess of what the FDA FOIA office is capable of handling.

Fact #6 : FDA Vaccine Approval Is Different From FOIA Process

It seems obvious, but it has to be said – the FDA vaccine approval process is different from the FOIA process.

The vaccine approval process involves FDA scientists evaluating the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for the EUA (Emergency Use Authorisation) or full FDA approval.

The FOIA process, on the other hand, involves FDA information specialists going through each page line-by-line to identify and redact proprietary information.

Fact #7 : FDA Vaccine Approval Process Adds A Ton Of New Documents

The FDA vaccine approval team went through fewer documents, because they only need to look at relevant information provided by Pfizer and BioNTech.

The FDA team in charge of this FOIA request would necessarily have to go through far more documents, because the approval process itself adds a ton of new documentation.

Even the PHMPT acknowledged that, specifically asking for “all correspondence and written summaries of oral discussions” related to the FDA approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Hence, it is ludicrous for the PHMPT to suggest that the two processes were similar in effort and time.

Fact #8 : FDA Processes FOIA Requests In 500-Page Blocks

The FDA processes FOIA requests in 500-page blocks, which allow them to provide documents to more requesters, and avoid a few large requests monopolising their “finite processing resources”.

This is not a special processing limitation on the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine data, but a standard FDA processing rate that the courts have upheld for a long time.

Fact #9 : FDA Processing FOIA Requests Faster Than Proposed

The FDA was able to process some records faster than the 500-page rate, as they noted in their 6 December 2021 brief. They also said that they can release more than 12,000 pages by end of January 2022.

Even back in December 2021, the FDA was doing above and beyond what it pledged to do, delivering almost 5000 pages per month – about 10X its promised rate.

At that rate, the FDA would finish processing 329,000 pages in 69 months – just under 6 years. Obviously, 6 years is far less than the 55 years claimed… and would put the end date at sometime in 2027, not 2076.

Fact #10 : It Would Take PHMPT Months To Read Everything

PHMPT stated that they are a group of over 30 people. Let’s say they are 35 strong, and they take the same 8 minutes to read through each page.

Even if they all sat down and read for 8 hours a day, it would take them over 7 months just to read through the 329,000 pages ONCE.

And it should be noted that this involves 5X more people than the FDA FOIA team, and they are all dedicated to this singular task of reading those Pfizer documents.

Fact #11 : PHMPT Took Almost 108 Days To Read 5 Documents!

PHMPT took almost 108 days to read through the first batch of five documents that the FDA released to them on 17 November 2021.

It was only in early March 2022 when they found the 9 pages listing some 1,291 adverse events of special interest.

This not only proves that the FDA was right about how much time it takes to read these documents, it also shows that the PHMPT does not really need all 329,000 documents within 108 days.

After all, it took the PHMPT almost that long just to read 5 documents! At this rate, it will take them some 16,450 years to read all 329,000 Pfizer documents…

Fact #12 : FDA Released Almost All Of PHMPT Priority List By Jan 2022

PHMPT appears to be cognisant that it is stupid to request for “everything” when most of the pages may not be relevant at all.

That’s why they sent the FDA a priority list of eight (8) items. And guess what – the US FDA was able to provide seven (7) of those items by January 31, 2022!

So Aaron Siri’s public griping about the FDA taking so long appears to be nothing more than theatre.

Fact #13 : Judge Asked FDA To Release 55,000 Pages A Month

On 6 January 2022, US District Judge Mark Pittman ordered a compromise, noting that “the Court recognises the “unduly burdensome” challenges that this FOIA request may present to the FDA“.

  • The FDA will produce “more than 12,000 pages” as it proposed, by 31 January 2022.
  • The FDA will produce the remaining documents at a rate of 55,000 pages per month, starting 1 March 2022.

Granted, the FDA did not win the right to continue processing at its own pace, but neither did the judge agree to let PHMPT force the FDA to deliver all documents within 108 days. It was ultimately a compromise.

For certain, Judge Pittman’s order would mean that the FDA would have to fully release the Pfizer vaccine documents by August 2022!

His January 2022 judgement effectively wiped out the claim that FDA will only fully release the data by 2076. So it is curious why the DiedSuddenly account on X (formerly Twitter) would repost this old claim…

FDA Refused To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

Did the FDA refuse to release results from studies investigating subclinical myocarditis caused by the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA Refused To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results!

People are sharing an article by The Epoch Times which claims or suggests that the US FDA is refusing to release results from studies investigating subclinical myocarditis caused by the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine!

Here is an excerpt of The Epoch Times article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts:

FDA Has Results of Subclinical Myocarditis Studies, but Won’t Release Them Yet

Recommended : Did FDA + CDC Hide Data On Failing COVID Vaccines?!

 

No Evidence FDA Refused To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results

In this article, I will go through some of their points, and show you what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Moderna Studies Started In 2020-2021

First, let me start by pointing out that the three Moderna studies mentioned in The Epoch Times article did not begin in 2022. Rather, they started in 2020 / 2021:

Fact #2 : FDA Did Not Order Those Studies In 2022

The Epoch Times article claimed that “FDA officials in January 2022 directed Moderna to run three prospective studies on subclinical myocarditis“, and provided this FDA document (PDF download as evidence.

If you actually look at the FDA document, titled Summary Basis for Regulatory Action, you’ll realise that it tells a completely different story:

  • it stated that the Review Committee recommended the approval of the Moderna SPIKEVAX mRNA vaccine for COVID-19
  • it mentioned the P203, P204, and P301 studies which were already running by then.
  • it stated that Moderna requested the deferment of three paediatric studies, including P203 and P204.
  • it stated that the FDA approved Moderna’s request to defer the paediatric studies in December 2021.

To address requirements of the Pediatric Research Equity Act, the Applicant submitted a request for deferral of the following studies in pediatric individuals ˂18 years of age because the mRNA-1273 vaccine would be ready for approval for use in adults before such studies could be completed. The deferred studies are:

  • Deferred pediatric study P203 to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of mRNA-1273 vaccine in children 12 years through 17 years of age
  • Deferred pediatric study P204 to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of mRNA-1273 vaccine in children 6 months to <12 years of age
  • Deferred pediatric study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of mRNA-1273 vaccine in infants <6 months of age

The deferral request and pediatric plans were accepted without revisions by the FDA Pediatric Review Committee on December 14, 2021.

To be clear – the P203, P204, and P301 studies were already running in 2021 – long before the FDA released that PDF.

Recommended : Did Japan Order Investigation Of COVID-19 Vaccine Deaths?!

Fact #3 : FDA Has PMR/PMC Website

The FDA requires manufacturers of certain drug products (including vaccines) to conduct postmarket studies and clinical trials to assess for possible serious risks associated with those drugs / vaccines.

Referred to as postmarket requirements (PMRs) and postmarket commitments (PMCs), these studies are conducted after the approval of the drugs / vaccines.

You can actually look up PMR / PMC studies on the FDA website (link). Here are the results of the three Moderna trials mentioned in the article:

  • mRNA-1273-P203 : Final report submitted to FDA on 13 January 2023
  • mRNA-1273-P204 : Study is ongoing
  • mRNA-1273-P301 : Study is ongoing

Fact #4 : PMR / PMC Report May Be Requested

Even though the FDA regularly releases information about PMR / PMC studies, it does not release the actual data or results. This is not just for COVID-19 vaccines. This policy extends to all PMR / PMC studies.

As an FDA spokesperson explained to The Epoch Times, those reports may be requested through a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request.

The FDA doesn’t post PMR/PMC study reports. They may be requested under FOIA.

You may wondering why the FDA cannot publicly release PMR / PMC study results. That’s because those documents may contain classified information, personal information, confidential business details, or even trade secrets.

Anyone can make a FOIA request for these reports, but the FDA must first go through the reports, and redact information that are exempt from disclosure under FOIA, before they can be released.

Recommended : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #5 : FOIA Delays Due To Excessive Requests

Ironically, a key reason why the FDA cannot expedite FOIA requests for those three Moderna studies is because it was compelled by US District Judge Mark Pittman to expedite the processing of some 329,000 pages of documents requested by PHMPT looking into the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine!

That decision came after the PHMPT demanded that the FDA release all those documents within 108 days. Now that the FDA is compelled to focus on processing those documents, it has far less resources to process other FOIA requests.

Fact #6 : No Evidence Of Vaccine Subclinical Myocarditis

While the article appears to suggest that the Moderna P203 study results may prove that the Moderna mRNA vaccine causes subclinical myocarditis, it offers no proof of that. The article only points out that:

  • Moderna submitted its final report on the P203 study to the FDA
  • The Epoch Times requested for the Moderna report
  • The FDA told The Epoch Times to file an FOIA request
  • The Epoch Times filed its FOIA request in July 2023
  • The Epoch Times has not received the report as of 11 October 2023

Jessica Adams, who requested the P301 study results in July 2023, was told by the FDA that it would take “at least two years” for her to receive the results.

The Epoch Times article actually mentioned this, so there is no reason to believe that its P203 request made in the same month would be released anytime soon.

To be clear – there is not even a hint of smoke, because none of them actually have access to any of the three Moderna study results – two of which are still ongoing!

Did Mayo Clinic Admit Hydroxychloroquine Can Treat Covid?!

Did the Mayo Clinic just admit that hydroxychloroquine may be used to treat COVID-19?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Mayo Clinic Admitted Hydroxychloroquine Can Treat COVID-19!

People are sharing a Mayo Clinic article, or screenshots of that Mayo Clinic article, claiming that it shows the Mayo  Clinic quietly admitting that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) can be used to treat COVID-19 patients!

Peter Navarro : From Mayo Clinic website grudging admission of glaring truth: “Hydroxychloroquine may be used to treat coronavirus (COVID-19) in certain hospitalized patients.” For all you murderers at @CNN
@johnberman who spread lies about hydroxy, this one’s for u.

Chief Nerd: Well how about that…

DC_Draino : 🚨Mayo Clinic quietly updates website to say Hydroxychloroquine can be used to treat Covid patients

Doctors were fired and censored for saying this

Media smeared it

All because Big Pharma couldn’t have any therapeutic drugs available in order to make billions from vaccine EUA

Recommended : COVID vaccines have 1000X death rate than safe limit?!

 

Truth : Mayo Clinic Did Not Admit Hydroxychloroquine Can Treat COVID-19!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS about COVID-19 treatments, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Mayo Clinic Posted This Back In 2020

First, I should address the claim that the Mayo Clinic “quietly” updated its website recently to say that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) can be used to treat COVID-19 patients.

The truth is the Mayo Clinic first mentioned hydroxychloroquine as a possible treatment for COVID-19 more than 3 years ago – on 22 May 2020, to be specific.

It was not a recent development, or even a quiet change. The last time Mayo Clinic appears to have changed its hydroxychloroquine article regarding COVID-19 was in June 2020!

Just because some people did not notice the changes until three years later in September 2023, does not mean the Mayo Clinic “quietly” admitted anything.

Fact #2 : Mayo Clinic Warned About Hydroxychloroquine

The Mayo Clinic article only stated that hydroxychloroquine “may also be used” to treat COVID-19 in “certain hospitalised patients“.

Hydroxychloroquine may also be used to treat coronavirus (COVID-19) in certain hospitalized patients.

More importantly, the next paragraph actually warned people against self-medicating with hydroxychloroquine, and said that it “should only be used for COVID-19 in a hospital or during clinical trials“.

The Mayo Clinic article also explicitly pointed out that hydroxychloroquine may increase the risk of developing heart rhythm problems.

Using this medicine alone or with other medicines (eg, azithromycin) may increase your risk of heart rhythm problems (eg, QT prolongation, ventricular fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia). Hydroxychloroquine should only be used for COVID-19 in a hospital or during clinical trials. Do not take any medicine that contains hydroxychloroquine unless prescribed by your doctor.

Recommended : Peter McCullough Testified To EU Parliament On Vaccine Safety?!

Fact #3 : Mayo Clinic Article Changed According To Evidence

The Mayo Clinic article on hydroxychloroquine actually changed twice in 2020, as new evidence presented itself during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To make it easier for you to understand, here is the timeline of the Mayo Clinic updates on hydroxychloroquine, and some significant points in the use of HCQ to treat COVID-19:

18 March 2020 : The WHO announced that chloroquine and HCQ would be tested in the multinational Solidarity clinical trial for COVID-19 treatments using existing drugs.

19 March 2020 : US President Donald Trump encouraged the use of chloroquine and HCQ during a national press conference, causing a massive increase in demand for both drugs in the US.

28 March 2020 : US FDA authorised the use of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate to treat COVID-19, under an Emergency Use Authorisation as an experimental treatment for emergency use in hospitalised patients.

8 April 2020 : The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) began the first clinical trial to assess whether hydroxychloroquine is safe and effective to treat COVID-19.

24 April 2020 : US FDA cautioned against using chloroquine / hydroxychloroquine outside of a hospital or clinical trial, after reports of adverse events including heart problems and deaths.

Between 8-22 May 2020 : Mayo Clinic first updated its hydroxychloroquine article to say that it “may be used” to treat COVID-19 patients in “certain hospitalised patients

5 June 2020 : Hydroxychloroquine was discontinued in the UK RECOVERY Trial when a preliminary analysis of the data showed that it provided “no beneficial effect” in patients hospitalised with COVID-19.

Between 5-13 June 2020 : Mayo Clinic updated its HCQ article to warn about the risk of heart rhythm problems while taking hydroxychloroquine. It also warned that HCQ should only be used “in a hospital or during clinical trials“.

15 June 2020 : US FDA revoked the EUA for both chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, while allowing clinical trials for both drugs to continue.

20 June 2020 : US NIH halted its clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine, after it showed that HCQ was “unlikely to be beneficial to hospitalised patients with COVID-19”.

4 July 2020 : WHO discontinued the hydroxychloroquine arm of the Solidarity Trial, after HCQ produced “little or no reduction in the mortality of hospitalised COVID-19 patients“.

24 September 2023 : Mayo Clinic article from 13 June 2020 went viral on social media after former Trump advisor, Peter Navarro, posted it on X (formerly known as Twitter).

Florida Anti-Vaccine Advice Slammed As Dangerous!

Former Florida surgeon general Dr. Scott Rivkees and the CDC just publicly slammed the state’s advice against getting the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine!

Find out what he said, and what’s going on!

 

Florida Recommends Against 2023 Updated COVID-19 Vaccines!

Just one day after the CDC recommended that everyone 6 months and older should get the new 2023 updated COVID-19 vaccines, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo issued a statement recommending against people under 65 getting the updated vaccine.

In his statement, Ladapo claimed that getting the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines make it easier for people to get infected, while running risk of getting cardiac problems. Instead of getting the new COVID-19 vaccines, Ladapo recommends staying physically active outdoors, and eating more vegetables

As the federal government makes new boosters for COVID-19 available, the Florida Department of Health (Department) reminds health care providers of their obligation to remain up to date with the current literature related to the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

Former Surgeon General Slams Florida Vaccine Advice!

Former Florida surgeon general Dr. Scott Rivkees just publicly slammed the DeSantis administration and Dr. Joseph Ladapo for advising people against getting the updated 2023 COVID-19 vaccines.

Dr. Scott Rivkees preceded Dr. Joseph Ladapo as the state surgeon general, resigning in September 2021 after being shunned by Ron DeSantis for encouraging COVID-19 precautions when the Florida governor wanted virtually no preventive measures.

When the current Florida surgeon general issued that advice against getting the updated COVID-19 vaccine, he spoke up against it to USA TODAY NETWORK – Florida.

Dr. Rivkees, who is a pediatrician and now a professor at the Brown University School of Public Health, pointed out that the COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to be “very safe” and “very effective”.

Rates of COVID vaccination are lower in Florida than they had been. I think the cumulative effect of this anti-vaccine messaging is being felt.

COVID is a vaccine preventable disease. These vaccines are very safe and very effective.

CDC Labels Florida Vaccine Advice As Dangerous!

The CDC also publicly criticised both Florida governor Ron DeSantis and his surgeon general Joseph Ladapo for advising against getting the updated 2023 COVID-19 vaccine, with CDC Director Dr. Mandy Cohen calling their comments “dangerous“.

Vaccination against COVID-19 remains the safest protection for avoiding hospitalizations, long-term health challenges, and death.

As we head into the fall and winter seasons, it is important that Americans get the updated COVID-19 vaccine. They are proven safe; they are effective, and they have been thoroughly and independently reviewed by the FDA and CDC.

Public health experts are in broad agreement about these facts, and efforts to undercut vaccine uptake are unfounded and dangerous.

Recommended : 2023 COVID-19 Vaccines Have “A Lot Of Red Flags”?!

The US FDA has also stated publicly that the new 2023 COVID-19 vaccines have been thoroughly reviewed and tested for safety:

The public can be assured that these updated vaccines have met the agency’s rigorous scientific standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality.

We very much encourage those who are eligible to consider getting vaccinated.

2023 COVID-19 Vaccines Have “A Lot Of Red Flags”?!

Should you listen to Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo who claimed that the 2023 COVID-19 vaccines have “a lot of red flags”?!

Find out what he said, and what the facts really are!

 

Claim : 2023 COVID-19 Vaccines Have “A Lot Of Red Flags”

Days before the FDA approved the updated 2023 COVID-19 vaccines that the CDC later recommended for everyone 6 years and older, Florida’s Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo went on a rant.

During a “Mandate Freedom” press conference with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on September 7, 2023, Ladapo criticised the 2023 COVID-19 vaccines, claiming that there are “a lot of red flags”.

There’s a new vaccine that’s coming around the corner, a new mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, and there’s essentially no evidence for it.

There’s been no clinical trial done in human beings showing that it benefits people. There’s been no clinical trial showing that it is a safe product for people — and not only that, but then there are a lot of red flags.

So something that you don’t hear much about, but we’ll be talking more about is that there are multiple studies now from around the world – Brazil, I think Australia, United States, that show that over time, these vaccines, these mRNA COVID-19 products actually increase your chances of contracting COVID-19.

That’s not normal, and unfortunately, you are going to have people who are going to get on television and try to explain why you should be comfortable with that, you should be comfortable with taking a product that ultimately, like its predecessors, increases your chance of contracting something.

No Evidence 2023 COVID-19 Vaccines Have “A Lot Of Red Flags”

Let’s take a look at the claims Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo made at the “Mandate Freedom” press conference, and see what the facts really are…

Fact #1 : Joseph Ladapo Was Appointed By Ron DeSantis

First, I think it is important to note that most US states do not have a surgeon general. State surgeon generals are a recent “invention”, with only five states creating this position:

  • Pennsylvania : 1996
  • Michigan : 2003
  • Arkansas and Florida : 2007
  • California : 2019

Even so, Michigan has not filled its Surgeon General post since 2010. All other US states and territories do not their own state surgeon generals, and rely on the US Surgeon General, who is currently Vivek Murthy.

Joseph Abiodun Ladapo was appointed to the post of Florida Surgeon General by Florida governor Ron DeSantis on September 21, 2021, following his op-eds promoting unproven COVID-19 treatments like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, questioning the safety of vaccines, and opposing lockdowns and mask mandates.

At that time, he claimed that these opinions were based on his “experience in treating COVID-19 patients at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). However, UCLA staff roster do not show him treating any COVID-19 patients. Several of his colleagues also stated that Ladapo had never treated any COVID-19 patient.

Fact #2 : Ladapo’s Advice Are Often Controversial

After he was appointed as Florida Surgeon General, Joseph Ladapo’s first move was to repeal quarantine requirements for schoolchildren exposed to COVID-19.

He also recommended that children in Florida should not be vaccinated against COVID-19, making Florida the first state to contradict COVID-19 vaccine guidelines by the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Ladapo also suggested that men aged 18 to 39 should not be vaccinated, claiming high cases of cardiac-related deaths for those who took the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines – a claim that was rejected by many medical professionals.

In a sign that his views were possibly disgraceful, the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine removed Ladapo’s name and biography from its websites.

In January 2023, the Faculty Council of the University of Florida College of Medicine said that Ladapo’s recommendation was based on “careless and contentious research practice” and might have violated the university policies on research integrity.

On March 10, 2023, the CDC and the FDA publicly rebuked Joseph Ladapo (PDF download) for claiming that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines cause widespread adverse events.

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

Fact #3 : Ladapo Comments Were Made Before Vaccine Approval

Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo made those comments on 7 September – four days before the US FDA approved the updated 2023 vaccines, and five days before the CDC recommended their use in people 6 months and older.

So how did Ladapo know that these updated 2023 COVID-19 vaccines have “a lot of red flags” days before the FDA and the CDC announced their findings?

Fact #4 : Ladapo Did Not Offer Any Evidence

Even more troubling – Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo did not offer any evidence to back up his claim that the updated 2023 COVID-19 vaccines have “a lot of red flags”.

What exactly are those red flags? He didn’t say.

Fact #5 : Ladapo Asked People To “Feel” Instead

Instead of providing evidence that the updated 2023 COVID-19 vaccines are dangerous, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo asked people to “feel” instead.

Listen inside to what makes sense, what feels right, you know, what feels like truth. What has that feeling, and that resonance of truth. That clarity of truth, like we all know it when we feel it inside.

Ladapo also explained that some people are more able to “feel” the truth, because they are more advanced in their “spiritual journeys”.

Some of us know it more readily than others, and it’s because we are all in different points in our spiritual journeys”. 

To be clear – that’s not what they teach in medical school. Doctors are not taught to “feel” what is right, or what is wrong, for their patients.

Doctors are trained to examine patients, and use a variety of investigative tools like x-ray, ECG, MRI, ultrasound, etc. to come to a diagnosis. Then they prescribe a treatment based on the research conducted by other doctors and scientists.

Whether they are religious (or spiritual) or not, should not be a factor in the diagnosis or treatment of any patient.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Safe + Effective

The truth is – COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to be safe and effective. And we know this because not only have they passed large Phase 3 clinical trials, billions of doses have been administered worldwide in the past 2.5 years.

Thanks to the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines in preventing hospitalisation and death from the SARS-CoV-2 virus, hospitals are no longer filled with people gasping for breath. In fact, the world has successfully reopened, thanks to the COVID-19 vaccines.

COVID-19 vaccines do not make it easier for people to get infected. It only appears that way because many people are now vaccinated. If 90% of the world is vaccinated, then it is only natural that 90% of infected people have been vaccinated.

I should also point out that the COVID-19 vaccines were designed to prevent death and severe disease. They are not force fields that block you from being infected, so fully-vaccinated people will still get infected.

However, because the COVID-19 vaccines have trained your own immune system to fight against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, you are more likely to suffer a mild disease, or even remain asymptomatic.

2023-2024 COVID-19 Vaccines : What You Need To Know!

The FDA just approved two new 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines, which the CDC is now recommending for everyone 6 months and older!

Here is what you need to know about these new COVID-19 vaccines for 2023-2024!

 

FDA Approves Two 2023-2024 COVID-19 Vaccines!

On September 11, 2023, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved updated COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna for 2023-2024.

In tandem, the US FDA also removed authorisation for the previous Pfizer and Moderna Bivalent vaccine in the United States.

FDA Takes Action on Updated mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines to Better Protect Against Currently Circulating Variants

You may not notice but the FDA is not calling these vaccines a “booster dose”. Instead, both vaccines are considered as “updated vaccines” that will better target the currently circulating SARS-CoV-2 virus variants.

Both 2023-2024 updated vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are based on the same mRNA vaccine technology as their original and bivalent vaccines. But the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines no longer targets the original, ancestral SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Instead, they both target the XBB.1.5 variant, which was dominant when these vaccines were developed. Even though the XBB.1.5 variant is no longer the dominant variant, the FDA has determined that it is similar enough to most prevailing variants to offer good cross-protection.

As before, these updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines are designed to prevent death and severe disease, and not avoid mild disease or symptomatic infections.

The FDA is still reviewing a third updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine from Novavax. The Novavax COVID-19 vaccine does not use mRNA, and is based on a synthetic spike protein with an adjuvant instead.

CDC Recommends 2023-2024 COVID-19 Vaccines!

On Tuesday, September 12, 2023, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officially recommended that everyone 6 months and older get the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines that were just approved by the US FDA.

CDC Recommends Updated COVID-19 Vaccine for Fall/Winter Virus Season

CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against the potentially serious outcomes of COVID-19 illness this fall and winter. Updated COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna will be available later this week.

Vaccination remains the best protection against COVID-19-related hospitalization and death. Vaccination also reduces your chance of suffering the effects of Long COVID, which can develop during or following acute infection and last for an extended duration.  If you have not received a COVID-19 vaccine in the past 2 months, get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself this fall and winter.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is always changing, and protection from COVID-19 vaccines declines over time. Receiving an updated COVID-19 vaccine can restore protection and provide enhanced protection against the variants currently responsible for most infections and hospitalizations in the United States.

Last season, those who received a 2022-2023 COVID-19 vaccine saw greater protection against illness and hospitalization than those who did not receive a 2022-2023 vaccine.  To date, hundreds of millions of people have safely received a COVID-19 vaccine under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history.

This recommendation came after the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) was presented with new data which showed that the highest rates of hospitalisation and deaths from COVID-19 were for the very old – adults over 75, and the very young – infants younger than 6 months.

CDC Recommendations For 2023-2024 COVID-19 Vaccines

CDC just released its recommendations for who should get the 2023-2024 updated COVID-19 vaccines:

Everyone 6 Years And Older

The CDC recommends that everyone 6 years and older should get one dose of the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna, regardless of whether they received any original COVID-19 vaccine in the past or not.

People 65 Years And Older

People who are 65 years and older may get one additional dose of the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna, four or more months after receiving the first dose.

Immunocompromised People

People who are moderately or severely-immunocompromised may get one additional dose of the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna, two or more months after receiving the first dose.

Unvaccinated Children 6 Months To 4 Years (Pfizer)

The CDC is recommending three doses of the updated Pfizer-BioNTech 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines:

  • First dose of the 2023-2024 Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine
  • Second dose : 3-8 weeks after first dose
  • Third dose : at least 8 weeks after second dose

Vaccinated Children 6 Months To 4 Years (Pfizer)

The CDC is recommending that children who received the original Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine should receive these updated doses:

  • 3 doses of the original vaccine : get one updated Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine dose
  • 2 doses of the original vaccine : get one updated Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine dose
  • 1 dose of the original vaccine : get two updated Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine doses
  • 2 doses of the original vaccine + bivalent booster : no need for updated vaccine

Unvaccinated 5 Year Old Children (Pfizer)

The CDC is recommending that unvaccinated 5 year-old children should receive one dose of the updated 2023-2024 Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccinated 5 Year Old Children (Pfizer)

The CDC is recommending that 5 year-old children who received the original Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine should receive one dose of the updated vaccine:

  • 1 or more doses of the original vaccine : get one updated Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine dose

Unvaccinated Children 6 Months To 5 Years (Moderna)

The CDC is recommending two doses of the updated Moderna 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines:

  • First dose of the 2023-2024 Moderna COVID-19 vaccine
  • Second dose : 4-8 weeks after first dose

Vaccinated Children 6 Months To 5 Years (Moderna)

The CDC is recommending that children who received the original Moderna COVID-19 vaccine should receive these updated doses:

  • 2 doses of the original vaccine : get one updated Moderna vaccine dose
  • 1 dose of the original vaccine : get two updated Moderna vaccine doses
  • 2 doses of the original vaccine + bivalent booster : no need for updated vaccine

Did FDA + CDC Hide Data On Failing COVID Vaccines?!

Did the FDA and CDC hide data that show the COVID-19 vaccines failing as early as January 2021?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA + CDC Hid Data On Failing COVID-19 Vaccines!

People are sharing an article by The Epoch Times which claim or suggest that FDA and/or CDC hid data that show the COVID-19 vaccines failing as early as January 2021!

Here is an excerpt of The Epoch Times article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts:

FDA, CDC Hid Data on Spike in COVID Cases Among the Vaccinated: Documents

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence FDA + CDC Hid Data On Failing COVID-19 Vaccines!

In this article, I will go through some of their claims, and show you what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Humetrix Study Was Commissioned By US DOD

First, let’s start by pointing out that the Humetrix study in question was commissioned by JAIC – the US Department of Defense Joint Artificial Intelligence Center. This was stated explicitly in an email by Humetrix President and CEO, Bettina Experton, to the FDA:

This study has been conducted by my company under contract with the DoD JAIC (Joint Artificial Intelligence Center) since March 2020, when we were t asked to analyze Medicare claim data to monitor, map and conduct Covid-19 predictive analytics for the military.

What this means is – the data belonged to the US Department of Defense, not Humetrix, the FDA, or the CDC.

Fact #2 : Humetrix Published Study Results In December 2022

It seems odd to accuse the US FDA and CDC of hiding data from the Humetrix study, when Humetrix publicly published its results in the open-access journal, Biology in December 2022.

The study is called “Enhanced Vaccine Effectiveness during the Delta Phase of the COVID-19 Pandemic in the Medicare Population Supports a Multilayered Prevention Approach“.

Fact #3 : No Evidence CDC / FDA Hid Humetrix Study

There is no evidence that the FDA or CDC hid the Humetrix study or its data. The Epoch Times article did not offer any evidence, beyond pointing out that the Humetrix analysis was “not presented” during a meeting to approve the booster dose.

Ironically, the same article pointed out that the CDC presented data from its COVID-NET data that showed falling vaccine effectiveness in the elderly against the Delta variant. So why should the CDC / FDA try to “hide” the Humetrix data?

Is it not possible that the CDC preferred to rely on its own data? Or perhaps, the CDC decided that the COVID-NET data was compelling enough, it did not need to supplement with the similar data from the Humetrix study?

Recommended : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #4 : Vaccines Were Not Meant To Prevent Infection

While many anti-vaccine activists harp on the fact that COVID-19 vaccines fail to prevent transmission or breakthrough infections, the truth is – the vaccines were designed to prevent severe disease and deaths from COVID-19.

It would be nice if they can significantly block transmission, or breakthrough infections, but those were never the endpoints in any COVID-19 vaccine trial. If you look back at the vaccine trial results, they were only looking at protection against “symptomatic infection“, “severe disease“, and “death“.

COVID-19 Vaccine Protection Against
Symptomatic
Infection
Severe
Disease
Death
Pfizer Comirnaty 95.0% 100% 100%
Gamaleya Sputnik V 91.6% 100% 100%
Moderna mRNA-1273 94.1% 100% 100%
AstraZeneca AZD1222 62% ~ 90% 100% 100%
Sinopharm BBIBP-CorV 79% ~ 86% 90% 100%
Sinovac Biotech 50.65% 83.7% 100%
J&J Janssen COVID-19 66.0% 85% 100%
CanSino Biologics 65.7% 90.98% 100%

Therefore, their constant harping of the “inability” or “failure” of COVID-19 vaccines to block transmission, or completely prevent infections, is a red herring. That was never the goal of these vaccines.

Even if you are fully-vaccinated, you can continue to get breakthrough infections, and that’s fine. The key thing is vaccines help to prevent severe disease and death COVID-19 infections.

Fact #5 : Humetrix Study Looked At Delta Variant

It is also important to note that the Humerix study looked at the Delta variant, as its title stated clearly – Effectiveness of mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Against the Delta Variant Among 6M Medicare Beneficiaries 65 Years and Older.

The original COVID-19 vaccines were designed to target the original (ancestral) SARS-CoVo-2 virus. The Delta variant did not exist at that time.

The Humerix study did not address or disparage the effectiveness of the vaccines against the original SARS-CoV-2 virus that they were originally meant to target. It was looking to see if the original mRNA vaccine could also protect against the Delta variant.

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

Fact #5 : Reduced Protection vs. Delta Variant Spurs Need For Booster Dose

The Humerix study, at that time, was presented to the FDA for its use in the consideration whether to approve the booster dose looked at the effectiveness of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines against the new (at that time) Delta variant.

Because it showed reduced vaccine effectiveness against infections and hospitalisations, that would actually support the approval of a booster dose to boost protection against COVID-19.

If the Humetrix study actually showed the original mRNA vaccines’ strong protection against the Delta variant, the FDA and/or CDC might not feel the need to approve or support a booster dose at that time.

This was actually mentioned in the Executive Summary of the Humetrix presentation on Page 2:

Salus breakthrough hospitalization risk model can be applied to prioritize the over 65 population for booster vaccine

FDA Import Alert 99-33 On Japanese Food Fact Check!

Here is what you need to know about the FDA import alert 99-33 on Japanese food over radioactive wastewater from the Fukushima nuclear plant!

Claim : FDA Issued Import Alert 99-33, Banning Japanese Food!

This message has gone viral on and off over the years, being shared again and again on WhatsApp, and social media. It’s long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…

The US Food and Drug Administration has issued a notice

A week ago, the US law came into force:

🅾️ Japanese food entering the US:
📎 Fresh milk,

The Truth About FDA Import Alert 99-33 On Japanese Food!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) to scare people into boycotting Japan and Japanese food, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : FDA Issued Import Alert #99-33 In March 2011

On March 11, 2011, Japan was hit by a massive tsunami triggered by a 9-magnitude earthquake off its Pacific coast. The force of the tsunami greatly damaged the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, contaminating the surrounding area with radioactive material.

The Government of Japan determined that certain food products in affected prefectures were therefore not fit for human consumption, due to the risk of contamination by the radioactive material. They banned those food products from sale within Japan, and for export.

The US FDA responded by issuing Import Alert #99-33 – “Detention Without Physical Examination of Products from Japan due to Radionuclide Contamination.

This part of the viral post is true, but everything else is false.

Fact #2 : FDA Import Alert #99-33 Was Limited To Certain Prefectures

The FDA Import Alert #99-33 did not ban the import of all Japanese food products, as the viral post claimed.

It only targeted Japan’s own restrictions at the prefecture level, using Section 801(a)(2) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act:

FDA-regulated products are subject to refusal and will be refused admission into the United States if the products appear to be forbidden or restricted for sale in the country in which they were produced or from which they were exported.

Fact #3 : FDA Cancelled Import Alert #99-33 In September 2021

On September 21, 2022, the US FDA deactivated (cancelled) Import Alert #99-33. Since then, there has been no ban on any food product from the five affected prefectures of Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi, Fukushima and Ibaraki.

Now, after an extensive analysis of Japan’s robust control measures that include decontamination, monitoring and enforcement; after reviewing the results of 10 years of sampling food products from Japan; and after determining a very low risk to American consumers from radioactive contaminated foods imported from Japan, FDA has decided that the IA is no longer necessary to protect public health and therefore should be deactivated.

Despite this cancellation of the import ban more than a year ago, the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) continues to spread this fake story on WhatsApp, as well as social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

Recommended : Did Hong Kong Just Ban All Food From Japan?!

Fact #4 : Australia Did Not Stop Issuing Visa To Japanese Travellers

Australia never suspended visa issuance for Japanese travels over the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident.

Fact #5 : US Did Not Suspend Japanese Immigration

The United States never suspended immigration of Japanese citizens over the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident.

Fact #6 : Japan Did Not Supply Contaminated Food To Tourists

This claim has been repeatedly promoted by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and is categorically false.

Japan did not reserve their contaminated food supply for consumption by tourists, while importing food for their own citizens. Neither did Chinese tourists to Japan suffer “strange diseases of varying degrees”.

Those are just lies created by the wumao to scare Chinese citizens into boycotting Japan and Japanese food products.

Fact #7 : Fukushima Radiation Only Affected A Small Area Of Japan

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident did not affect 70% of Japanese territory.

The Government of Japan established a 30 kilometre no-fly zone, and a 20 kilometre exclusion zone, around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Aerial survey of the radioactive caesium levels in May 2012 show that only a small part of Japan was affected.

Recommended : Fukushima Waste Water Release : Should You Be Worried?!

Fact #8 : Harmful Radionuclides Were Removed From Wastewater

Both fresh water and seawater were used to cool down the melting nuclear fuel rods and spent fuel rods stored at the facility.

Measures were quickly taken to block the seepage of the contaminated wastewater into the sea and water table. For example, TEPCO poured a 60 cm-thick concrete wall covering 70,000 square meters of ocean seabed.

There were occasional accidental discharges of radioactive wastewater, but generally the radioactive wastewater was stored in massive storage tanks and treated using the Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS).

ALPS removed harmful radionuclides like caesium and strontium from the wastewater, leaving only tritium – a mildly radioactive and far less harmful hydrogen isotope.

Fact #9 : Decontaminated Wastewater Used To Keep Reactors Cooled

The water treatment system became fully-functional, together with water recycling systems on 3 July 2011.

The decontaminated wastewater thereafter is being 100% reused to keep the reactors cooler, so no additional volume of contaminated water would be generated.

Fact #10 : Excess Decontaminated Wastewater To Be Released

A large amount of treated wastewater remain at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, and on April 13, 2021, the Government of Japan announced that the treated wastewater would be released in 2023.

The US FDA says that the treated wastewater presents an “extremely low” health risk even if consumed, which is rather minimised because it’s being discharged into the vast ocean.

According to scientific experts from interagency advisory teams and FDA representatives to the US Advisory Team for Environment, Food and Health, the release of the treated wastewater will have “no effect on the safety of foods imported from Japan“.

In other words, the FDA considers food from Japan to be perfectly safe to import and consume, even after the treated wastewater is released into the ocean.

Did Moderna Try To Cover Up Vaccine Deaths?!

Do newly-released clinical trial documents show that Moderna tried to cover up deaths caused by its COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-08-08 : Updated with some additional information.
Originally posted @ 2023-07-25

 

Claim : Moderna Tried To Cover Up Vaccine Deaths!

People are sharing articles by The Epoch Times and Children Health Defense which claim or suggest that newly-released clinical trial documents show that Moderna covered up deaths caused by its COVID-19 vaccine!

Here is an excerpt of The Epoch Times article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts:

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Moderna Tried To Cover Up Vaccine Deaths!

In this article, I will go through some of their claims, and show you what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Adverse Events Are Not Necessarily Vaccine Side Effects

First, let’s start with the fact that adverse events are not necessarily vaccine side effects.

Like with Pfizer, Moderna has to monitor for these adverse events, which are “unfavourable” or “unintended” events that happen after vaccination or taking a drug, like having an anaphylactic reaction or getting into a car accident.

All reported adverse events have to be investigated to find out if they are related (anaphylactic reaction) or not (getting into a car accident) to the vaccine or drug that was taken.

Even if an adverse event was “possibly caused” by the vaccine, it must still be confirmed that the vaccine directly caused it, because an anaphylactic reaction (for example) can also occur from a bee sting, or an existing peanut allergy.

Only once an adverse event is confirmed to be caused by the vaccine, is it then a vaccine side effect. Otherwise, it is merely an adverse event, not a side effect.

Fact #2 : Moderna Sponsored Trial, But Did Not Run It

It is important to point out that Moderna only sponsored and created the protocol (PDF download) for the Phase 3 clinical trial of its mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate for COVID-19. Moderna itself did not conduct the mRNA-1273 vaccine trial.

The Moderna mRNA-1273 Phase 3 clinical trial was conducted by CoVPN investigators funded by the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response and NIAID.

Moderna is leading the trial as the regulatory sponsor and is providing the investigational vaccine for the trial. The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response and NIAID are providing funding support for the trial.

The NIH Coronavirus Prevention Network (CoVPN) will participate in conducting the trial. The network brings together expertise from existing NIAID-supported clinical research networks. The mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate will be tested at approximately 89 clinical research sites in the United States, 24 of which are part of the CoVPN.

Hana M. El Sahly, M.D., principal investigator of the NIAID-funded Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Consortium site at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston; Lindsey R. Baden, M.D., principal investigator of the NIAID-funded Harvard HIV Vaccine Clinical Trials Unit at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston; and Brandon Essink, M.D., principal investigator and medical director of Meridian Clinical Research, will serve as co-principal investigators for the Phase 3 trial of mRNA-1273.

Recommended : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #3 : Moderna Does Not Conduct Autopsies

Defending the Republic (DTR) – the NGO that obtained and released the Moderna documents highlighted that only two autopsies were performed even though 16 people died during the clinical trial.

Just to be clear – Moderna itself did not conduct the clinical trial. Therefore, it does not have any say on whether an autopsy should or should not be conducted.

In fact, it is likely that the attending doctors / hospitals were the ones deciding whether to conduct the autopsies, while study authors only collected the data. That’s why many of the deaths were listed with Unknown autopsies. If the study authors were the ones conducting the autopsies (and refusing to do so), they would have listed them as None.

As I will show you below, there is no evidence that the study authors deliberately refused to conduct autopsies or investigate suspicious deaths in the Moderna vaccine clinical trial.

Fact #4 : Half The Deaths Were On Placebo

Many of these articles pointed out that sixteen people who received the Moderna vaccine died. What they did not tell you is that sixteen other people who received the placebo also died. In other words, a total of 32 people died during the clinical trial – half received the vaccine, and half received the placebo.

While that sounds like a lot – I should point out that the Moderna mRNA-1273 Phase 3 clinical trial involved 30,420 volunteers, and ran for approximately 3 months.

The mortality rate in the US for 2021 was 879.7 per 100,000 people, so for those three months, we should expect 89 people to die out of those 30,420 participants. Yet only 32 people died. There is simply no evidence in the clinical trial’s data to show an increase in deaths from the Moderna vaccine.

Fact #4 : Subject US3292023 Died From Heart Failure

In its summary, DTR highlighted some of those suspicious deaths that lack an autopsy. Sounds suspicious, right? Not really, if you actually look at the Moderna documents.

The first case was Subject US3292023 – an 80 year-old White male who died on 23 January 2021 due to an Adverse Event, and his autopsy status was listed as None.

If you search through the Moderna document (PDF download), you will see that this sequence of reports:

  • He had history of significant cardiac disease and diabetes.
  • He received Dose 1 on 4 August 2020, and Dose 2 on 1 September 2020.
  • He reported no adverse effects from both vaccinations.
  • He suffered from diabetic ketoacidosis (serious complication from his existing diabetes) on 26 October 2020.
  • He suffered from End Stage Congestive Heart Failure on 23 January 2023.

I’m sure you can see why there was absolutely no need for anyone to conduct an autopsy on this man.

Recommended : Did CDC Say COVID Vaccines Cause AIDS + Cancer?!

Fact #5 : Subject US3472001 Likely Died From Heart Attack

The second case was Subject US3472001 – a 70 year-old White male who died on 27 November 2020 due to an Adverse Event, and his autopsy status was listed as Unknown.

If you search through the Moderna document (PDF download), you will see that this sequence of reports:

  • He had history of significant cardiac disease and severe obesity.
  • He received Dose 1 on 31 August 2020, and Dose 2 on 1 October 2020.
  • He reported no adverse effects from both vaccinations.
  • He tested positive for Hepatitis C on 29 September 2020.
  • He suffered from a sudden fatal event, likely myocardial infarction on 27 November 2020.

It is unknown if an autopsy was conducted, but with a history of significant cardiac disease and severe obesity, it would not be surprising if the doctor / hospital did not bother to conduct an autopsy, especially during a pandemic that was straining doctors and hospital facilities.

Fact #6 : Subject US3512042 Died From Cardiac Arrest

The third case is Subject US3512042 – a 78 year-old White male who died on 1 September 2020 due to an Adverse Event, and his autopsy status was listed as Unknown.

  • He received Dose 1 on 12 August 2020, but never received a second dose.
  • On 30 August 2020, he reported nausea and malaise.
  • On 31 August 2020, he vomited three times.
  • On 1 September 2020, he suffered from cardiopulmonary arrest and died.

It is unknown if an autopsy was conducted, but it is not uncommon for a 78 year-old man to die from cardiopulmonary arrest.

Fact #7 : Subject US3622169 Died From Metastatic Liver Cancer

The fourth case was Subject US3622169 – a 56 year-old White male who died on 21 January 2021 due to an Adverse Event, and his autopsy status was listed as Unknown.

  • On 30 December 2020, he was diagnosed with metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma (metastatic liver cancer).
  • On 16 January 2021, he suffered sepsis and his metastatic liver cancer worsened, and he ultimately died on 21 January 2021.

Needless to say, there was simply no need to perform an autopsy, after confirming his metastatic liver cancer diagnosis.

  • She received Dose 1 on 26 September 2020, and Dose 2 on 27 October 2020.
  • On 13 March 2021, she died, but her cause of death was unknown.

In this case, an autopsy might be warranted. However, that is impossible to determine, because we do not know the circumstances behind her death – she could have died from any number of causes – an accident, suicide, a fall, a surgical procedure, an infection, etc.

Fact #15 : Subject US3962094 Died From Suicide

The twelfth case was Subject US3962094 – a 56 year-old White female who died on 15 October 2020 due to an Adverse Event, and her autopsy status was listed as None.

Did US FDA Just Ban Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines?!

Did the US FDA just ban the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines, because they caused too many deaths and injuries?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : US FDA Just Announced Ban of Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines!

People are claiming that the US FDA just announced a ban of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, because they caused too many deaths and injuries!

Paul Hookem : Breaking: The US FDA no longer authorizes Moderna and Pfizer monovalent ‘vaccines’ for use in the US. For the 100 plus million Americans previously injected with this stuff? “Our bad!”

SNEAKO : Last year you couldn’t enter a restaurant without a vaccine card. That same vaccine today is BANNED.

Last year I was canceled off Youtube for saying the vaccine doesn’t work. Today the FDA agrees. Do you still believe their lies?

Remember the Covid-19 shots from Pfizer and Moderna we were all led to get two years ago? They were even FDA approved!

Well now the FDA has banned them. Look it up for yourselves. Which, you’ll probably have to because I doubt MSM will want you to know about it.

Recommended : Did FDA just admit Pfizer vaccine has Graphene Oxide?!

 

Truth : US FDA Did Not Announce Ban of Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pfizer + Moderna mRNA Vaccines Were Approved In December 2020

First, I think it is important to remember that the US FDA issued emergency use authorisations for the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines on 11 December 2020, and 18 December 2020 respectively.

The US FDA subsequently issued full authorisations for both Pfizer and Moderna monovalent mRNA vaccines on May 10, 2021, and January 21, 2022 respectively.

This is important to know because since their introduction in December 2020, the SARS-CoV-2 virus has evolved into many variants like Delta and Omicron, and even more subvariants like XBB.

Fact #2 : Pfizer + Moderna Introduced Bivalent Vaccines In 2022

Thanks to evolutionary pressures, these variants and subvariants have evolved to evade the protections offered by both vaccines and natural immunity from a prior infection.

To combat these new variants, Pfizer and Moderna developed bivalent mRNA vaccines, which target both the ancestral SARS-CoV-2 virus as well as the newer and much more infectious Omicron variant.

Pfizer and Moderna announced, on 25 June and 8 June respectively, that they successfully tested their bivalent COVID-19 vaccines. With the introduction of bivalent vaccines, there really isn’t any use for the older monovalent vaccine.

Recommended : Pfizer + Moderna Bivalent COVID Vaccines Are Almost Here!

Fact #3 : US FDA Did Not Ban Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines

Just to be clear – the US FDA did not ban the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

The FDA only announced that the monovalent Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are no longer authorised for use in the United States, because there are now better bivalent Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended the emergency use authorizations (EUAs) of the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 bivalent mRNA vaccines to simplify the vaccination schedule for most individuals.

This action includes authorizing the current bivalent vaccines (original and omicron BA.4/BA.5 strains) to be used for all doses administered to individuals 6 months of age and older, including for an additional dose or doses for certain populations. The monovalent Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines are no longer authorized for use in the United States.

Fact #4 : US FDA Removed EUA For Pfizer + Moderna Monovalent Vaccines

The FDA also clarified later that the monovalent Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines remain approved. The FDA did not rescind the approval of the monovalent vaccines. It only remove the emergency use authorisation for the monovalent vaccines.

It’s probably worth clarifying that the monovalent vaccines are still approved (licensed). That hasn’t changed. But they are no longer authorized for *emergency use* in the United States.

Recommended : Did Switzerland Just Stop All COVID-19 Vaccinations?!

Fact #5 : US FDA Simplified COVID-19 Vaccinations

I should also take this opportunity to point out that the US FDA just simplified COVID-19 vaccinations using the new bivalent Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.

Instead of getting two doses of the monovalent vaccine, and then getting one or two booster doses of the bivalent vaccine, the FDA now recommends getting just one bivalent vaccine dose.

Most individuals, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, may receive a single bivalent vaccine dose.

Individuals 65 years and older, or immunocompromised, may receive up to two bivalent vaccine doses.

Children 6 months through 5 years old may receive two doses of the bivalent Moderna vaccine.

Children 6 months through 4 years old may receive three doses of the bivalent Pfizer vaccine. Children 5 years old may receive a single dose of the bivalent Pfizer vaccine.

The new FDA recommendation is based on data that shows that most of the US population 5 years and older have protection from COVID-19, either through vaccination or a prior infection.

Did FDA just admit Pfizer vaccine has Graphene Oxide?!

Did the FDA just confirm that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has a toxic substance called Graphene Oxide?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA Just Admitted Pfizer Vaccine Has Graphene Oxide!

People are sharing an article by The Expose (formerly Daily Expose), which claims that the FDA just confirmed that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has a toxic substance called Graphene Oxide!

Here is an excerpt from the really long article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

BREAKING: FDA confirms Graphene Oxide is in the mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines after being forced to publish Confidential Pfizer Documents by order of the US Federal Court

The Covid-19 vaccines have been at the centre of a heated debate since their introduction, with many questions and concerns raised about their safety and effectiveness.

Recommended : Did Bill Gates Call For COVID-19 Vaccine Withdrawal?!

 

Truth : FDA Did Not Admit Pfizer Vaccine Has Graphene Oxide!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS by The Expose (formerly Daily Expose), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Daily Expose Is A Fake News Website

Like Real Raw News and NewsPunch, Daily Expose is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money. It was later rebranded as The Expose.

It was founded in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker, a mechanic from Lincolnshire, and is infamous for publishing COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation that were quoted by Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, and Chinese state media.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from Daily Expose / The Expose. Here are some of its fake stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Everything posted by The Expose must be considered fake news, until proven otherwise.

Fact #2 : FDA Did Not Try To Delay Release Of Pfizer Vaccine Safety Data

The Expose falsely claimed that the FDA attempted to delay the release of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine safety data for 75 years.

For one thing – Pfizer publicly released its COVID-19 vaccine trial results and safety data (PDF download) for the Vaccine and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) on 10 December 2020.

Also, the 75 year claim was the “interpretation” of Aaron Siri, the lawyer working for PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) – the group requesting the data that the FDA used to licence the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

And that was because the PHMPT insisted on asking for everything related to the approval process, not just what Pfizer released to the FDA, including “all correspondence and written summaries of oral discussions”.

You can read more about this nonsensical 75 year delay claim in our article, Did FDA Ask For 75 Years To Release Pfizer Vaccine Data?!

Recommended : Did Pfizer Try To Hide 158K Vax Adverse Events For 75 Years?

Fact #4 : Pfizer Document Does Not Refer To Vaccine Components

The Pfizer document that The Expose claim was “proof” that graphene oxide was used in the manufacturing process of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is nothing of the sort.

The document doesn’t show that graphene oxide was used to create or manufacture the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Neither does it show that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine contains graphene oxide.

In fact, the document does not even refer to the components of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at all!

Rather, the document describes how Pfizer scientists analysed the structural and biophysical characteristics of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein (P2 S) that the vaccine produces in our cells.

The study then determines if the vaccine antigen that is produced by the body accurately replicates the ACE2 binding site and other epitopes (part of an antigen that produces an immune response) targeted by neutralising antibodies.

PF-07302048 : Structural and Biophysical Characterization of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Glycoprotein (P2 S) as a Vaccine Antigen

  1. OBJECTIVESThe purpose of this study was to express and characterize the vaccine antigen encoded by BNT162b2.

If you read Section 3.2 of the Pfizer PF-07302048 document (PDF download), it will explain how the scientists obtained those P2 S spike proteins from Expi293F embryonic kidney cells used for research.

Section 3.3 then explains how they used the P2 S spike proteins to test binding kinetics – to see how quickly they bind to human ACE2 and a neutralising monoclonal antibody.

It is fascinating how The Expose missed all that…

Fact #5 : Graphene Oxide Was Only Used In Electron Microscopy

Now, we come to Section 3.4, which The Expose claims is evidence that “Graphene Oxide is required to manufacture the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine because it is needed as a base for the lipid nanoparticles“.

That’s utter nonsense, because the section title specifically referred to Cryogenic Electron Microscopy (Cryo-EM) of the P2 S spike protein. In other words – Section 3.4 detailed how Pfizer scientists used cryogenic electron microscopy to determine its 3D structure.

Graphene oxide is commonly used in cryogenic electron microscopy to fix the sample onto a meshed grid before it is frozen to extremely low temperatures for the electron microscope to take its images.

Here is an example of a gold Quantifoil R1.2/1.3 300 mesh grid coated with graphene oxide – similar or even exactly what Pfizer scientists used:

As the Pfizer document detailed, its scientists applied 4 μL of the purified P2 S spike protein sample onto two gold Quantifoil R1.2/1.3 300 mesh grids overlaid with graphene oxide.

After blotting the sample and plunge-freezing it in liquid ethane, the Titan Krios electron microscope took 27,701 micrographs, to determine the 3D structure of the spike protein that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine produces in our cells.

Page 11 of the Pfizer PF-07302048 document actually shows how they created the 3D structure of the P2 S spike protein using those images from the cryogenic electron microscope.

It is fascinating how The Expose missed this…

Fact #6 : Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Does Not Contain Graphene Oxide

Anti-vaccination activists and conspiracy theorists have been claiming for years that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine contains graphene oxide, and they have never been able to prove that to date.

And this new claim is no different. That’s because there is NO graphene oxide in the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

In addition to the tozinameran mRNA vaccine, each vial contains these excipients (inactive substances).

  • ((4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate) (ALC-0315)
  • 2-[(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide (ALC-0159)
  • 1,2-Distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DSPC)
  • Cholesterol
  • Trometamol
  • Trometamol hydrochloride
  • Sucrose
  • Water for injections

The first four are components of the lipid nanoparticles that protect the delicate mRNA vaccine. Trometamol, which is also known as tromethamine or Tris, is a buffer to maintain the vaccine’s pH level, and stabilise the nucleic acid macromolecules.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine does not contain graphene oxide, because the vaccine does not require it.

Did Bill Gates Call For COVID-19 Vaccine Withdrawal?!

Did Bill Gates call for the withdrawal of all COVID-19 vaccines, because they are “far more dangerous than anyone imagined”?

Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!

This article was originally posted in August 2021, and was updated and reposted because people keep re-circulating this fake story on WhatsApp, and social media platforms!

Please help to stop the circulation of fake news, by sharing this fact check article!

 

Claim : Bill Gates Calls For Withdrawal Of ALL COVID-19 Vaccines!

People are sharing an article by Daily Expose, claiming that Bill Gates is calling for the withdrawal of ALL COVID-19 vaccines, because they are “far more dangerous than anyone imagined”!

It’s a VERY long article, so please skip to the next section for the FACTS!

BREAKING – Bill Gates calls for the withdrawal of all Covid-19 Vaccines; “The vaccines are far more dangerous than anyone imagined”

In a shocking announcement, Bill Gates, billionaire Microsoft co-founder and the major force behind the COVID-19 vaccines, called for all the COVID-19 genetic-based vaccines to be taken off the market immediately.

 

Truth : Bill Gates Did NOT Call For Withdrawal Of COVID-19 Vaccines!

The truth is – this is yet another fake story by Daily Expose, which is notorious for creating and posting fake news. Here are the FACTS…

Fact #1 : Daily Expose Is A Fake News Website

Like Real Raw News and NewsPunch, Daily Expose is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money. It was later rebranded as The Expose.

It was founded in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker, a mechanic from Lincolnshire, and is infamous for publishing COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation that were quoted by Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, and Chinese state media.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from Daily Expose / The Expose. Here are some of its fake stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Fact #2 : Bill Gates Did Not Call For Withdrawal Of COVID-19 Vaccines

Bill Gates never called for the withdrawal of COVID-19 vaccines. This is a complete fabrication by Daily Expose.

If he actually did that – it would have been big news on mainstream media, but there’s completely no coverage of such momentous news.

Check your favourite news media – CNN, BBC, Fox News, Al Jazeera, CGTN, etc. See if you can find ANY legitimate news outlet confirming what Daily Expose claimed.

No one reported on it, because the “19-minute televised speech” never happened!

Daily Expose made up the whole story, just like die Basis created the fake German government announcement!

Read more : Did Germany Put All COVID-19 Vaccines On Hold?

Fact #3 : Daily Expose Admitted Faking The Story

Daily Expose fabricated this article as a piece of “satire”, but hid the fact by only mentioning that it’s “satire” at the very bottom of their fake article.

They also misleadingly posted it with the title that said nothing about the article being “satire”. It seems intentional – so that people would think it’s genuine.

And true enough – people thought it was genuine, and they shared it out as factual, making it go viral.

Daily Expose later changed the title to “SATIRE – In an alternate universe Bill Gates has called for the withdrawal of all Covid-19 Vaccines“.

They also added “a note from the editor”, stating that “when we first published this article we should have made it clear at the beginning that it was satire rather than at the end. We did not do this and we apologise…

However, it’s too late – and they know it – because people continue to share the original version which pretended to be genuine.

Read more : Was Bill Gates Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity?

Fact #4 : Daily Expose Lied That The Rest Is Factual

Even though the Daily Expose editor insisted the article is satire, the writer – W. Gelles claimed that it’s mostly factual.

Note – The following satire is fictional in that Mr. Gates has made no such speech and the Gates Foundation has not established any funds to compensate vaccine victims or to make available effective, inexpensive COVID-19 remedies. All the rest of the article is factual – W. Gelles

The truth is that the entire article is FALSE – a complete fabrication by W. Gelles and the Daily Expose.

For example, the claim that VAERS captures “only one percent of what’s going on”, and yet reported 13,000 deaths and over half a million adverse events is COMPLETELY FALSE.

The claim that “hydroxycholoroquine is known to be very effective in fighting COVID-19” is also COMPLETELY FALSE. Also false are the claims that the studies that discredited HCQ were retracted.

Everything in their article can be verified as false, but Daily Expose is counting on you not checking their false claims.

Read more : How Antivaxxers Use VAERS To Support Their Fake News!

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Have Been Proven Safe + Effective

Anti-vaccination proponents are not interested in your health, which is why they keep lying about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

The truth is – COVID-19 vaccines were only approved AFTER they have undergone extensive safety and efficacy tests, involving tens of thousands of volunteers.

And even after receiving Emergency Use Authorisation and full FDA approval, they continue to be monitored for safety and efficacy.

The reason why doctors and health authorities STRONGLY advocate vaccination is because the vaccines have been PROVEN to protect the vast majority of people from getting COVID-19 in the first place.

And even if you do get infected after vaccination, the vaccine will protect you against hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

So stop listening to fake news websites like Daily Expose. Protect yourself and your family by vaccinating against COVID-19!

Dr. Medina Culver + AFLDS Sued For HCQ Death!

The family of a man who died after being treated with HCQ (hydroxychloroquine) and/or ivermectin just sued Dr. Medina Culver and the AFLDS for his alleged wrongful death!

 

Dr. Medina Culver + AFDLS Sued For HCQ Death!

In the first week of February 2023, the estate of Jeremy Parker sued Dr. Medina Culver – an osteopathic physician and Instagram influencer based in Henderson, Nevada, as well as the anti-vaccination group, America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), for alleged wrongful death from the use of HCQ (hydroxychloroquine) and/or ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

According to This Is Reno, the lawsuit alleged negligence by both AFLDS and Dr. Culver for Jeremy Parker’s death a year ago – on 3 February 2022.

Based on information provided by America’s Frontline Doctors, Mr. Parker became convinced, along with several of his co-workers, that hydroxychloroquine was an effective treatment for COVID-19.

On or about August 26, 2021, Mr. Parker had a telemedicine visit with Dr. Culver, at which time Dr. Culver prescribed Mr. Parker with hydroxychloroquine and/or ivermectin for COVID-19 treatment or ‘preventative therapy.’

Dr. Culver never performed a physical examination of Mr. Parker.

According to the lawsuit, Jeremy Parker developed cold-like symptoms in late January 2022. He was later found dead on February 3, 2022.

The Washoe County coroner listed his official cause of death as “sudden in the setting of therapeutic use of hydroxychloroquine“.

Jeremy Parker’s family is now seeking damages in excess of US$30,000.

Why Dr. Medina Culver + AFLDS Was Sued For HCQ Death!

Dr. Robert Bruce Bannister, a retired University of Nevada medical school professor in Reno, submitted this statement in support of the lawsuit against Dr. Medina Culver and the AFLDS:

Hydroxychloroquine is a medication approved by the FDA for the treatment of malaria and some autoimmune diseases. It is not approved for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19.

Serious cardiac rhythm disturbances are known adverse reactions when taking hydroxychloroquine and the presence of certain cardiac rhythm/cycle variants are noted contraindications and reasons to be cautious when prescribing hydroxychloroquine.

He further stated that Jeremy Parker’s death may have been prevented “if Dr. Culver had performed a more thorough evaluation including a physical exam to evaluate his heart function, a blood pressure measurement, and an EKG to ensure he did not have an abnormality…

 

Jeremy Parker Is Not The First To Die From HCQ Treatment

Jeremy Parker is not the first, and he unfortunately won’t be the last, to die from HCQ (hydroxychloroquine).

After US President Donald Trump promoted hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine to treat COVID-19, many people believed him. Even people who should know better.

On 29 March 2020, an Indian doctor – Dr. Utpal Barman, died of a massive cardiac arrest after taking the hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin (Z-Pak) combination that Donald Trump promoted.

Read more : Hydroxychloroquine Risk : Death From Cardiac Arrest!

While HCQ / hydroxychloroquine is considered safe to use in most people, it must be used with caution in patients with cardiac disease or other conditions that may increase the risk of QT prolongation:

  • cardiac arrhythmias,
  • congenital long QT syndrome,
  • heart failure,
  • bradycardia,
  • myocardial infarction,
  • hypertension,
  • coronary artery disease,
  • hypomagnesemia,
  • hypokalemia,
  • hypocalcemia,
  • or in patients receiving medications known to prolong the QT interval or cause electrolyte imbalances.

Females, geriatric patients, patients with diabetes, thyroid disease, malnutrition, liver impairment, or those who drink alcohol to excess may also be at increased risk for QT prolongation.

Hydroxychloroquine’s cardiotoxicity may be further exacerbated by pairing it with Z-Pak (Azithromycin).

In addition to known hepatotoxicity effects, Z-Pak (Azithromycin) can potentially cause cardiac problems like arrhythmias, and even prolong the QT interval.

That’s why the combination of HCQ and Z-Pak touted by Donald Trump is so dangerous for people to take, especially without prior medical examination to look for undetected heart disease or other risk factors.

Did CDC + FDA Warn Of Stroke From Pfizer Vaccine?!

Did the CDC and FDA warn that the new Pfizer bivalent vaccine can cause a brain stroke?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : CDC + FDA Just Warned Of Stroke From Pfizer Vaccine!

People are sharing various articles about a new CDC and FDA notification on the new Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine, together with alarming comments, like:

CDC/FDA lied to the American public & Big Pharma lied , withheld information…Now because of the fear of the Republican House the Truth starts to come out … CDC, FDA see possible link between Pfizer’s bivalent shot and strokes

BREAKING: The CDC is now investigating a possible link between Pfizer Covid Vaccines and strokes

Time to sue everyone who pushed a vaccine. Your employer. The government. Retail stores. Everyone needs to be held accountable

‼️BREAKING‼️

US says Pfizer’s bivalent 💉 may be LINKED to a type of brain stroke in older adults

SCARY

You know there’s a real & dangerous problem when BOTH the CDC & FDA raise a safety issue

They’re covering themselves BUT you’ve been WARNED

 

Truth : CDC + FDA Did Not Warn Of Stroke From Pfizer Vaccine!

It is true that the CDC and FDA released a notification about the new Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine. However, it has been twisted to falsely claim that the CDC and FDA are warning people about the risk of stroke from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #1 : CDC + FDA Notification Is Available Online

On Friday, January 13, 2023, the CDC and FDA published a notification on a “preliminary safety signal” involving the new Pfizer COVID-19 bivalent vaccine, which is available online.

I strongly encourage you to read it for yourself, but for your easier understanding, here is a quick summary:

  • the CDC and FDA use multiple, complementary safety monitoring systems to look for potential “safety signals” in vaccines and other medicine.
  • the CDC Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) surveillance system detected one safety signal, which met the statistical criteria to trigger further investigation.
  • the safety signal involved only the new Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine, and people who were 65 years and older.
  • the preliminary signal “appeared” to show that people who were 65 years and older were “more likely” to have an ischaemic stroke in the 21 days after receiving the Pfizer bivalent vaccine, compared to days 22-42 after vaccination.
  • only VSD surveillance has detected this safety signal – no other safety system has shown a similar signal.
  • multiple, subsequent analyses failed to validate this safety signal
  • the CDC continues to recommend that people get the bivalent vaccine.

Fact #2 : Multiple Analyses + Studies Fail To Validate This Signal

While the CDC and FDA will continue to evaluate the data, they pointed out that multiple analyses and studies failed to validate this safety signal.

  • A large study of bivalent vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna using the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services database show no increased risk of ischemic stroke
  • A preliminary study using the Veterans Affairs database do not show an increased risk of ischemic stroke after receiving the bivalent vaccine
  • The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has not seen an increase in reporting of ischemic strokes following the use of the bivalent vaccine
  • Pfizer-BioNTech’s global safety database has not indicated a signal for ischemic stroke with the bivalent vaccine
  • Other countries have not observed an increased risk for ischemic stroke with bivalent vaccines

Again, the VSD surveillance system was the only one producing this safety signal. No other surveillance system or study has been able to confirm or validate this safety signal.

In fact, the CDC made a point in their notification to say that “it is very unlikely that the signal in VSD represents a true clinical risk“.

Recommended : Did FDA Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots?!

Fact #3 : Safety Signals Are Not Evidence Of Causation

Safety signals function like tripwires, alerting health authorities into taking a close look at potential issues with vaccines or medicines.

Just because a safety signal was detected, it does not mean there is an actual problem. Like actual tripwires can be accidentally triggered by animals or falling branches, safety signals may be the result of random chance or other factors (see next fact).

The detection of any safety signal merely means that the CDC and FDA should take a closer look.

Fact #4 : Elderly Population At Higher Risk Of Stroke

I should point out that the safety signal was identified only in elderly people who were 65 years and older.

The VSD system, in this case, found that 130 people who were 65 years and older had a stroke within 21 days of receiving the new bivalent vaccine, out of about 550,000 senior citizens. It should be noted that no deaths were reported.

That may sound alarming, but this population segment is itself at significantly higher risk of developing blood clots, which can cause ischaemic stroke:

High Risk

  • hospital stay
  • major surgery – abdominal / pelvic surgery, or knee / hip replacement surgery
  • major trauma : automobile accident or fall
  • nursing home living

Moderate Risk

  • 65 years or older
  • trips over 4 years by plane, car, train or bus
  • co-morbidities like heart failure, obesity, cancer

That is why such safety signals have to be investigated, as it is still not certain if the 130 senior citizens who suffered a stroke had higher risk factors like surgery or immobility.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

Fact #5 : CDC Still Recommends Getting Bivalent Vaccines

The CDC issued that notification as a matter of transparency, and not because there was a genuine reason for concern.

If the CDC and FDA had any reason to believe that the Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine can cause stroke in senior citizens who receive it, they would have at least amended their vaccine recommendations.

Yet, the CDC continues to recommend that people who are eligible to receive the updated bivalent COVID-19 vaccine should continue to get them.

The CDC also stressed that multiple studies have shown that “staying up-to-date with vaccines is the most effective tool we have for reducing death, hospitalisation, and severe disease from COVID-19“.

Lil Keed : Cause of Death Revealed, Not From Vaccine!

An autopsy was conducted on Lil Keed, and it confirmed that he did not die from liver failure caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-01-05 : Added Lil Keed’s cause of death and final autopsy + coroner’s report.
Updated @ 2022-06-13 : Added LA County medical examiner’s comments.
Updated @ 2022-05-15 : Added Lil Gotit’s description of Lil Keed’s last moments.

Originally posted @ 2022-05-14

 

Claim : Lil Keed Died From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine!

Within hours of the news breaking that Atlanta rapper Lil Keed died, Jason Pires from Vancouver Times posted a story that claims he died from the Pfizer vaccine!

Rapper Lil Keed died from liver failure after taking the experimental Covid-19 vaccine, according to the doctors that treated him. Lil Keed originally objected to the vaccine, but his brother put pressure on him, and he accepted.

The rapper, from Atlanta, whose real name is Raqhid Render, had worked with numerous high profile artists over the years. Lil Keed was only 24 when he passed away.

His brother, Lil Gotit, confirmed the story with reporters at the Vancouver Times. His family plans on filing a lawsuit against Pfizer for wrongful death.

 

Truth : Lil Keed Did Not Die From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times appears to be a copy of the infamous Conservative Beaver – a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”. This time, they didn’t even bother to park it under their “Satire” section.

They revealed their true nature in their About Us section, hidden at the very bottom of the page, after a long list of comments.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

We are not affiliated with the mainstream media (CBC, CTV etc.) in any way, and any similarities between our content and the work of the MSM is purely coincidental.

Earlier, they created and propagated the fake story that Gilbert Gottfried’s wife said that he was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine.

They also created the fake story that Pfizer Vice President Rady Johnson was arrested and charged with multiple counts of vaccine fraud!

Read more : Was Pfizer VP Rady Johnson Arrested For Vaccine Fraud?!

Fact #2 : Lil Keed’s Cause Of Death Was Eosinophilia

Lil Keed (born Raqhid Jevon Render on March 16, 1998) died on May 13, 2022, hours after going to the Burbank Hospital with complains of stomach and back pain at around 7:30 PM.

Vancouver Times claimed that Lil Keed died from liver failure after taking the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. That has been definitely proven wrong when the Los Angeles County Medical-Examiner examined Lil Deed and released his autopsy report seven months later.

In their autopsy report, Lil Reed was determined to have died from natural causes, with the official cause of death listed as Sequelae of Eosinophilia (too many eosinophils – a type of white blood cell), with an unestablished aetiology (cause).

Severe eosinophilia is dangerous as the eosinophils can form aggregates that block blood vessels, causing stroke and respiratory failure if they block blood supply to the brain or lungs.

Eosinophilia can develop in people for no known reason – a condition known as idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome. And no – COVID-19 vaccines do not cause eosinophilia.

The coroner’s report noted that Lil Keed “had been sick in bed for 4 days with complaints of stomach and back pains” and that “his brother noted that [his] eyes were jaundiced and drove him to the hospital in a private vehicle“.

According to the coroner’s report, Lil Keed was hospitalised earlier in Georgia with stomach pain too, but “left against medical advice and did not seek follow-up care“.

Fact #3 : His Family Did Not Mention Vaccine Or Pfizer

Lil Keed’s younger brother and girlfriend were the only members of his family to speak about his death (so far).

Neither mentioned that his death was related to the COVID-19 vaccine, or that they plan on filing any lawsuit against Pfizer.

His younger brother, rapper Lil Gotit (real name Semaja Render) was the first to officially announce his death on Instagram :

Can’t believe I seened u die today bro I did all my cries I know what u want me to do and that’s go hard for Mama Daddy Our Brothers Naychur and Whiteboy #ImaHoldthisShitDown

Lil Gotit mentioned twice that he saw his brother die, but did not mention how he died. In his follow-up video (posted on Instagram by @theneighborhoodtalk), Lil Gotit said :

I watched my brother die… We rushed to the hospital, I looked in the man’s eyes like, ‘Damn, my brother gone. I told him I love him.”

Shit… It’s all like that now. Man, my brother with me, man, I’m good!

I took him to the hospital, n***a, I did it. You wouldn’t believe that my brother right now, he in the sky.

Quana Bandz, Lil Keed’s girlfriend and the mother of their 3-year old daughter, Naychur, also posted about his death on Instagram :

I love you sooooo much baby 🥺 what I’m post to do with out you😤I can’t breathe right sleep right nothing I don’t even wanna talk to nobody Keed I can’t take this why you leave US bru. What am I supposed to tell Naychur? What am I gone tell our new baby ? Keed I just told you the other day if you left me with these two kids I was gone loose my mind 🥺 my Mind is lost baby. You told me everything I’m sooooo sorry I didn’t fly to LA I know I could’ve saved you baby

Her post goes on for much longer, but not once did she ever mention that his death was related to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #4 : Lil Keen’s Vaccination Status Is Unknown

Lil Keed has never mentioned anything about the COVID-19 vaccine, or his vaccination status.

The claim that he objected to the vaccine is unsubstantiated, and was most likely created by Vancouver Times.

So is the claim that his brother – Lil Gotit – pressured him to get the vaccine. There is simply no evidence Lil Gotit forced his brother to get vaccinated.

Fact #5 : Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Is Not Experimental

The COVID-19 vaccines are only experimental whilst they are under development, or undergoing clinical trials.

They are no longer experimental once they successfully clear their clinical trials, and receive either an emergency use authorisation or full approval from a health authority like the US FDA or EMA.

The Pfizer vaccine received its full FDA approval on 23 August 2021, so this claim is completely bogus.

You should also know that no experimental vaccine can ever be administered to the public.

Everything that Vancouver Times posts should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Did FDA Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots?!

Did the US FDA finally admit that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine causes dangerous blood clots?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA Finally Admits Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots!

Anti-vaccination activists have recently been claiming that the US FDA finally admitted that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine causes dangerous blood clots on social media.

FDA Finally ADMITS Pfizer Covid Vaccine Causes Blood Clots.. The Gateway Pundit REPORTED ON THIS for over a Year..

Here is the article where the FDA admits yet another reaction that we were exposing over a year ago from the initial covid injections which is – Blood clots…. When will you see? “You trusted Satan and that is the problem!”

It did not help that Elon Musk amplified one of the claims to his millions of followers:

Hodgetwins : So the FDA finally came out and said that Pfizer’s Covid shot causes blood clots? Only 2 years late!

Elon Musk : Much will come to light as (Dr. Anthony) Fauci loses power.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : FDA Did Not Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Study Shows FDA Vaccine Surveillance At Work

Anti-vaccination activists have long claimed that the US FDA is colluding with Big Pharma companies like Pfizer and Moderna.

But the truth is – this study is evidence that the US FDA is doing its job by continuing to monitor the safety of the four approved COVID-19 vaccines in the United States.

FDA and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are using the Medicare health insurance database, covering more than 25 million elderly persons aged 65 years and older, to conduct near real-time safety monitoring of 14 outcomes on a weekly basis following COVID-19 vaccine (BNT162b2, mRNA-1273, or Ad26.COV2.S) administration.

Fact #2 : The FDA Study Is Available Online

The FDA study in question is available online, and I strongly encourage you to read it for yourself, but here is a quick summary:

  • The study is called “Surveillance of COVID-19 vaccine safety among elderly persons aged 65 years and older“.
  • It was published in the journal Vaccine on 1 December 2022.
  • It looked at data from the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) covering 30,712,101 elderly persons, from December 11, 2020 until January 15, 2022.
  • Out of 30.7 million participants, about 17.4 million persons were vaccinated with a total of 34,639,937 doses.
  • It looked at 14 outcomes of interest, and initially four outcomes met the threshold of a “statistical signal”, but after further evaluation, only one outcome met the “statistical threshold for a signal”.
  • No signals were detected for the Moderna mRNA-1273, or the Janssen Ad26.COV2.S vaccines.

Recommended : Did FDA Panel Reject Pfizer Booster Dose Over Myocarditis?

Fact #3 : Study Looked At Elderly Population

I should point out that the FDA study looked at people who are 65 years and older, many of whom have pre-existing co-morbidities, or other risk factors like being in assisted living facilities.

High Risk

  • hospital stay
  • major surgery – abdominal / pelvic surgery, or knee / hip replacement surgery
  • major trauma : automobile accident or fall
  • nursing home living

Moderate Risk

  • 65 years or older
  • trips over 4 years by plane, car, train or bus
  • co-morbidities like heart failure, obesity, cancer

In other words – this population has a higher risk than normal for developing blood clots. That’s likely one of the reasons why the FDA team chose to look at the elderly population.

I should point out that the Pfizer cohort comprised of particularly old people (85 years and older) who were nursing home residents (implying that they have cognitive or mobility issues), and had a higher percentage of previous COVID-19 infections.

Fact #4 : Increased Risks Were Only Modestly Elevated

Initially, the CMS database showed four outcomes that met the threshold for a “statistical signal” of modestly elevated risks (RR of less than 2) after vaccination with the Pfizer vaccine.

But after further evaluation, only one outcome ultimately met that statistical threshold for a signal – pulmonary embolism (PE).

Outcome of Interest Overall
Rate Ratio
(RR)
Rate Ratio of
Signal Identified
Pulmonary Embolism (PE) 1.15 1.54 on 27/2/2021
Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) 0.97 1.42 on 27/2/2021
Disseminated Intravascular
Coagulation (DIC)
0.92 1.91 on 13/2/2021
Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP) 1.26 1.44 on 24/4/2021

Fact #5 : The Study Did Not Say Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots

Let me be clear – the study did not say that the Pfizer vaccine causes blood clots.

The study authors pointed out that these statistical signals do not necessarily mean that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine causes them, as the potential association was less than twice that of historical rates, and may be associated with other factors:

  • many of those who received the Pfizer vaccine were much older (85 years+) nursing home residents, and people with more co-morbidities
  • these outcomes may be explained by co-morbidities that existed before vaccination, including previous COVID-19 infections

In fact, they warned against any conclusion that the Pfizer vaccine caused those outcomes:

Our new findings of statistical signals for four important outcomes for the BNT162b2 vaccine should be interpreted cautiously because the early warning system does not prove that vaccines cause the safety outcomes.

Recommended : Did Embalmers Find Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots?!

Fact #6 : No Signals For Other Clotting Disorders

What anti-vaccination activists gloss over as well, is the fact that the FDA study showed NO SIGNALS for other clotting, or clotting-related, disorders like deep vein thrombosis (DVT), heart attacks, and non-hemorrhagic stroke.

It should be noted that pulmonary embolism often happens when a blood clot in the leg (like in a DVT!) breaks free and gets lodged in the lungs. How likely is it for a person to develop pulmonary embolism without a deep vein thrombosis?

Fact #7 : FDA Is Not Taking Any Action

The study also notes that the FDA is currently not taking any regulatory actions based on these signal detection activities, because they need further study to determine if they are causal or merely coincidence.

These signal detection studies are part of the FDA’s active surveillance systems, and serve to identify potential adverse outcomes for further study. They cannot be used to make regulatory decisions.

Just because these signals were detected, does not mean they were caused by the vaccine. Until there is proof that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine causes blood clots, there is simply no reason for the FDA to take any action.

Why Leaked Data Did Not Show Pfizer Vaccine Would Kill!

Did leaked data show that Pfizer knew that its COVID-19 vaccine would kill people who took it?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Leaked Data Show Pfizer Knew Vaccine Would Kill!

People have been sharing a photo of The Irish Light newspaper, which claims that leaked data showed that Pfizer knew that its COVID-19 vaccine would kill people who took it!

It’s a long article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Pfizer knew their vaccine would kill

Leaked data shows shocking number of fatalities and side effects now officially associated with covid shots

Recommended : Died Suddenly Movie : More Vaccine Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Leaked Data Did Not Show Pfizer Vaccine Is Dangerous!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : The Irish Light Is An Anti-Vaccination Newspaper

While many anti-vaccination activists are promoting the article as coming from an Irish newspaper, The Irish Light is a self-printed newspaper that was launched in August 2021 by two former journalists turned COVID conspiracy theorists – Gemma O’Doherty and John Waters.

Gemma O’Doherty previously worked for the Irish Independent newspaper, while John Waters used to work for The Irish Times.

Unlike regular newspapers which delivers news content, The Irish Light focuses on questioning the effectiveness of vaccines, the COVID pandemic, and other far-right ideas.

Fact #2 : EMA Cyberattack Occurred In January 2021

The Irish Light published their article called “Pfizer knew their vaccine would kill” in April 2022, as part of their 10th issue.

However, the cyber attack on the European Medicines Agency (EMA) it referred to occurred more than a year ago – in January 2021.

Fact #3 : EMA-Pfizer Data Was Leaked To Journalists + Dark Web

More than 40 MB of data was stolen in the EMA cyberattack and released on the dark web, and leaked to several journalists, including from The BMJ and academics worldwide.

The leaked data consisted of confidential documents on the Pfizer BNT162b2 vaccine candidate (later known as the Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY COVID-19 vaccine), which included “internal / confidential email correspondence from November, relating to evaluation processes for COVID-19 vaccines“.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Vaccine Documents Reveal 1,291 Side Effects?!

Fact #4 : Leaked Documents Was About Quality Of Early Vaccine Batches

The BMJ reviewed the leaked documents, and found that they showed that regulators at the EMA had concerns about the quality of some early commercial batches of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

An email dated 23 November 2020 showed that a high-ranking EMA official complained that Pfizer was not producing its COVID-19 vaccines to the expected specifications.

Specifically, the level of intact mRNA dropped from about 78% in the clinical batches to 55% in the proposed commercial batches. Nothing in the leaked documents referred to safety issues, or side effects.

Fact #5 : Leaked EMA-Pfizer Data Was Tampered Before Release

On 15 January 2021, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) announced that their investigation showed that some of the leaked data was tampered by the hackers before being released.

Some of the correspondence has been manipulated by the perpetrators prior to publication in a way which could undermine trust in vaccines.

The BMJ was criticised for reviewing the leaked documents without first verifying their authenticity and accuracy.

EMA states that the information was partially doctored, and that the perpetrators selected and aggregated data from different users and added additional headings.

It is unclear to us why a respected journal chose to present unverifiable information, in the process damaging an institution that has worked for 25 years in a transparent and successful manner.

Recommended : Does Pfizer CEO aim to cut world population by 50%?

Fact #6 : Leaked Documents Showed EMA Regulation At Work

While anti-vaccination activists framed the leak as evidence of collusion between EMA and Pfizer, they actually show that EMA regulators were doing their jobs.

EMA did not cover up the quality issue, but filed two “major objections” with Pfizer, together with a host of other questions it wanted Pfizer to address.

On 25 November 2020, one of the leaked emails showed that Pfizer had already brought up the level of mRNA in their COVID-19 vaccine lots.

The latest lots indicate that % intact RNA are back at around 70-75%, which leaves us cautiously optimistic that additional data could address the issue.

Ultimately, the EMA authorised the vaccine on 21 December 2020, nothing that “the quality of this medicinal product, submitted in the emergency context of the current (covid-19) pandemic, is considered to be sufficiently consistent and acceptable.

Fact #7 : FDA Never Agreed To Withhold Pfizer Documents For 75 Years

The claim that the US FDA earlier agreed to withhold documents on the Pfizer vaccine for 75 years was debunked months earlier – in December 2021.

The US FDA never asked or agreed to withhold Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine documents for 75 years. That was merely the “interpretation” of Aaron Siri – the lawyer for PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) – the group requesting the data that the FDA used to licence the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #8 : Pfizer Documents Did Not Reveal Thousands Of Side Effects

The claim that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine documents revealed that it had thousands of side effects was debunked in March 2022.

The Pfizer document was publicly released on 17 November 2021, but it took antivaxxers more than 3 months to “discover” the list of 1,291 adverse events of special interest (AESI).

However, the AESI list was not a list of vaccine side effects. It was a list of “adverse events” that must be reported for further investigation.

It was also a generic list, which includes irrelevant adverse events like manufacturing and lab test issues, and even product availability and supply issues, as well as other diseases like MERS and chickenpox.

Did US Military Sentence Stephane Bancel To Death?!

Did the US military just convict Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : US Military Sentenced Stephane Bancel To Death!

On 15 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that a US military tribunal just convicted Moderna CEO, Stéphane Bancel, and sentenced him to death!

It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

The U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps and Office of Military Commissions had difficulty finding three impartial panelists to hear evidence against Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel, for every interviewee knew someone whose life the vaccine had shattered—or killed. Following a weeklong search, JAG picked the three—two male Marine Corps officers and a female Navy captain—who expressed the least ill will toward Bancel. Nonetheless, they found Bancel guilty of murder five minutes after Vice Adm. Darse E. Crandall rested JAG’s case and implored the panel to deliver upon Bancel a punishment commensurate to the damage his vaccines had caused the world.

 

Truth : US Military Did NOT Sentence Stephane Bancel To Death!

The truth is – this is just another FAKE STORY created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Everything that Real Raw News posts must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Fact #1 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

This disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news that will go viral, and generate him money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of Stephane Bancel’s Arrest

Only Real Raw News has published his fantastical account of US special forces arresting Stéphane Bancel outside a DC restaurant. That’s because Michael Baxter / Tiffin made it up.

Naturally, there is no news from any legitimate news outlet, or the US military, about Stephane Bancel’s arrest and sentencing.

How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story”?

Fact #3 : Moderna Is A Public-Listed Company

Moderna is a public-listed company, and is traded on the Nasdaq as MRNA. Its shareholders would have to be informed if their company CEO was really arrested, and sentenced to death.

It is NOT POSSIBLE to keep quiet and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s not even legal to cover up such an event from the shareholders.

Fact #4 : Stéphane Bancel + Moderna Issued A Press Statement

On Thursday, November 16, 2022 – one day after Real Raw News published that fake story, Moderna announced positive results for its two bivalent vaccines targeting the Omicron variant of COVID-19 – mRNA-1273.214, and mRNA-1273.222.

Instead of being incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay, as Michael Baxter/Tiffin claimed, Stephane Bancel announced from Cambridge, Massachusetts that:

We are pleased to see that both of our bivalent booster vaccine candidates offer superior protection against Omicron BA.4/BA.5 variants compared to our original booster, which is encouraging given COVID-19 remains a leading cause of hospitalisation and death globally. In addition, the superior response against Omicron persisted for at least three months after the mRNA-1273.214 booster.

Only Michael Baxter / Tiffin can persist with such a stupid lie, and only his idiotic fans will continue to believe his fake stories.

Fact #5 : Only Enemy Combatants Are Detained At Gitmo

It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that a US military tribunal in Gitmo (Guantanamo Bay) convicted Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death.

The Guantanamo Bay prison is only used to detain high-value enemy combatants. Stephane Bancel is not an enemy combatant by any military or legal definition, and would never be detained there.

If Stephane Bancel really committed a crime in the United States, he would have been brought to trial in an American court.

Fact #6 : US Military Tribunals Are Only For Foreign Combatants

It is also stupid for Real Raw News to claim that Bancel was trialed and convicted as an enemy combatant in a military tribunal, when he is a French civilian.

Military tribunals in the United States can only be conducted for members of enemy forces during wartime. The United States is not at war with France.

Needless to say – Stephane Bancel is also not in the French military, so even if he was arrested, there is no way he would be tried in a military tribunal.

Fact #7 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

It is also hilarious that Real Raw News readers actually believe the bullshit that someone sentenced to death would be executed just days later.

That may be possible in a country like North Korea, but certainly not in the United States

Death row inmates in the United States wait an average of 178 months – about 15 years after their sentencing, before they are executed.

In fact, none of the six Gitmo inmates charged with capital crime in the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and the attack on USS Cole in 2000, have actually been trialled to date, never mind convicted and sentenced to death.

Fact #8 : Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Under FDA Regulatory Oversight

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was confirmed to be safe and effective, after it successfully concluded its clinical trials with an efficacy of 94.5% against symptomatic COVID-19 infection, in a large study involving over 30,000 participants.

The VRBPAC committee vetted and discussed the study findings on 17 December 2020, and recommended that the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine receive its Emergency Use Authorisation, which the FDA granted on 18 December 2020.

Like ALL other vaccines, the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was under FDA regulatory oversight. If Moderna lied about their results, the FDA would not have continued to re-issue or amend its EUA and full approval time and time again.

Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel Arrested For Murder?!

Was Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel just arrested by US Special Forces, and charged with multiple counts of vaccine-related murder?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel Arrested For Murder!

On 7 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that the CEO of Moderna, Stéphane Bancel, was just arrested by US Special Forces and charged with multiple counts of murder related to its COVID-19 vaccine.

It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

U.S. Special Forces on October 30 arrested Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel on charges of murder as the pharmaceutical mogul and eugenicist exited a posh restaurant on the outskirts of D.C., where he had planned a business dinner with CDC Director Rochelle Walensky—but she never showed up. Sources in General David H. Berger’s office told Real Raw News that White Hats had been monitoring the detestable duo’s phone calls for months; Bancel and Walensky had spoken often, at least weekly, with Bancel asking her to board a flight to Paris, his home city, to discuss in person the “many lucrative benefits” of merging Covid-19 and Influenza vaccinations into a single inoculation.

 

Truth : Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel Was NOT Arrested!

The truth is – this is just another FAKE STORY created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Everything that Real Raw News posts must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Fact #1 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of Stephane Bancel’s Arrest

Only Real Raw News has published this fantastical account of US special forces arresting Stéphane Bancel outside a DC restaurant.

There is no remotely similar report from any legitimate news outlet, nor an official statement by the government.

How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story”?

It is NOT POSSIBLE to keep quiet and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s not even legal to cover up such an event from the shareholders.

Fact #4 : Stéphane Bancel + Moderna Issued A Press Statement

On Tuesday, November 1, 2022, Moderna issued an updated 2022 COVID-19 vaccine sales forecast. In that statement, its CEO Stéphane Bancel said:.

Along with production delays, Moderna’s third quarter was marred with manufacturing complexities due to shifting from 10-dose vials to 5-dose vials and the roll out of new bivalent vaccines that target both the original coronavirus and Omicron variants. We are working through a lot of those issues as we speak.

That would not be possible if Stéphane Bancel was really arrested by US Special Forces less than 2 days earlier!

Read more : Was Bill Gates Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity?

Fact #5 : US Military Cannot Arrest Civilians Within The United States 

It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that US special forces arrested Stephane Bancel.

The Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C. § 1385) prohibits “the wilful use of any part of the Army or Air Force to execute the law unless expressly authorised by the Constitution or an act of Congress“.

If the US government wanted to arrest Stephane Bancel, they would have sent the police with a warrant… not US special forces.

Fact #6 : France Has Extradition Treaty With The United States

France and the United States have an extradition treaty since 1996.

That means that the United States can order the arrest of Stephane Bancel even if he is residing in Paris. There is no need to wait for him to return to the United States.

Fact #7 : Stéphane Bancel Lives In Boston, Not Paris

It is also ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that US Special Forces had to wait for Stephane Bancel to fly from Paris into US territory to arrest him, because he actually lives in the city of Boston, Massachusetts!

If the US government wanted to arrest Stephane Bancel, they can do it at any time. It’s not like no one knows where he lives in Boston.

On 30 September 2021, a group of scientists, doctors and public health advocates actually protested in front of his home on Chestnut Street in Beacon Hill.

They brought a 12-foot-tall structure of artificial human bones, and called for Moderna to share its vaccine knowledge with the US government and other countries.

Fact #8 : US Military Tribunals Are Only For Foreign Combatants

It is also stupid for Real Raw News to claim that Bancel would be charged as an enemy combatant in a military tribunal, when he is a French civilian.

Military tribunals in the United States can only be conducted for members of enemy forces during wartime. The United States is not at war with France.

Needless to say – Stephane Bancel is also not in the French military, so even if he was arrested, there is no way he would be tried in a military tribunal.

Were COVID-19 Vaccines Recalled After 40K Deaths?!

Have COVID-19 vaccines been recalled after over 40,000 deaths were reported in major safety databases?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Recalled After 40K Deaths!

People are sharing a video of Dr. Peter McCullough testifying to a Senate Committee on Health & Human Services, as evidence that COVID-19 vaccines have been recalled after 40,000 deaths!

It is often shared with comments like this :

50 deaths is the threshold for a vaccine recall.

40,000 #COVID19 #VaccineDeaths and no recall.

Ask yourself, why is this the first in history?

The video shows Dr. Peter McCullough making a number of claims. Here is my transcript.

It’s long so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…

This month, the World Council for Health, which represents 70 bodies worldwide, has called for a global recall of all vaccines, because worldwide 40,000 deaths that these safety databases across the world… 40,000 in the big ones – VAERS, the Yellow Card System, the VigiSafe [sic] and Eudrys [sic] system. 40,000 deaths with the vaccines.

 

Truth : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Safe + Were Not Recalled!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, including Dr. Peter McCullough himself, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Was A Texas Senate Hearing

First, let us understand the context behind the viral video.

It was a partial clip from a 10.5 hour long interim hearing on public health data and the COVID-19 pandemic response held by the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee on June 27, 2022.

The Texas Senate hearing was just political theatre, in which the Republicans brought in fringe doctors or scientists like Peter McCullough and Robert Malone to, well, tell their lies.

I will now go through the McCullough clip (which starts at about 8:05:00), and show you why he has not changed his lying ways…

Fact #2 : No COVID-19 Vaccines Were Recalled

Just to be clear – no COVID-19 vaccines were recalled, either by health authorities or the manufacturers themselves.

That is merely a fantasy conjured up by anti-vaccination activists, just like how they fantasised in August 2021 that Germany put all COVID-19 vaccines on hold!

Fact #3 : WCH Called For Vaccine Recall Since Sept. 2021

Despite its name – the World Council for Health (WCH) is really just another anti-vaccination organisation, filled with the usual suspects.

Just to be clear – it has no authority whatsoever. The WCH is nothing more than an antivaxxer club.

The WCH was launched on September 23, 2021 with the expressed purpose of calling for “an Immediate Stop to the Covid-19 Experimental Vaccines“.

They also issued a Cease and Desist declaration, claiming that “Covid-19 vaccinations are dangerous and unsafe for human use“.

So Peter McCullough falsely claimed that WCH called for a vaccine recall “this month”. It has been calling for a vaccine recall from the very first day it was established. That is really its sole purpose – to stop COVID-19 vaccinations.

Fact #4 : VigiSafe + Eudrys Do Not Exist

Peter McCullough referred to the VigiSafe and Eudrys vaccine safety databases, but they do not exist.

Perhaps he meant the WHO VigiBase / VigiAccess database, and the EudraVigilance system run by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Read more : Did Italian Court Rule Vaccine Mandate As Unconstitutional?!

Fact #5 : Pharmacovigilance Data Is Unverified

It is hilarious that Peter McCullough still insists on using pharmacovigilance data from VAERS, the Yellow Card system, etc. as evidence.

Anyone who even bothers to read the highlighted WARNINGS on those websites would have understood that their data and reports cannot be considered evidence of any kind, because:

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

In addition, open systems like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, are very susceptible to abuse because they allow anyone from anywhere to post anything they want, without evidence or verification.

Anti-vaccination activists can, for example, key in unlimited numbers of adverse reaction reports, even if they never received a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Read more : Here’s How Antivaxxers Create Fake News Using VAERS!

Fact #6 : 40,000 Deaths Not Proven To Be Caused By Vaccines

Using pharmacovigilance data to claim that the COVID-19 vaccines caused 40,000 deaths is disinformation – false information deliberately created to deceive you.

Peter McCullough has no evidence that the 40,000 deaths reported in pharmacovigilance data were actually caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

Making an adverse reaction report is no different from making a police report. If you make a police report, it is registered in the system. However, that doesn’t mean a crime was actually committed. The police will have to investigate and determine if you were lying / mistaken, or there was indeed a crime.

Similarly, these adverse reaction reports are just reports. They must first be investigated, in order to determine if they are really side effects of the vaccine, or completely unrelated.

Fact #7 : There Is No 50 Death Threshold For Vaccine Withdrawal

There is no such thing as a 50 death threshold for a vaccine withdrawal.

Vaccines are often recalled for non-lethal reasons. In fact, they are most often recalled in batches by their manufacturers after quality control tests showed some irregularities in certain batches.

Health authorities like the US FDA also monitor vaccines continuously and determine if there is a safety concern that warrants a withdrawal. They do not have to wait for 50 people to die first. That’s just absurd!

Sometimes vaccines are also recalled due to “low vaccine potency or strength”. In such cases, people who received them would need to get an extra dose!

Red more : Do mRNA Vaccines Cause Invasion Of Killer Lymphocytes?!

Fact #8 : There Were Only 43 Omicron Cases On Dec. 10, 2021

It is interesting that Peter McCullough would talk about Omicron cases six months in the past.

But if you dig a little deeper, you will realise that he chose to talk about Omicron cases on December 10, 2021 because it was the first CDC report on Omicron cases in the United States.

At that time, there were only 43 known Omicron cases in the United States. Even though it showed that 79% were fully-vaccinated, that is misleading due to the low number of cases.

Fact #9 : Vaccinated People Have Mild Symptoms, Fewer Deaths

What he does not tell you is that most fully-vaccinated people experience mild symptoms even if they were infected with the Omicron variant.

He also does not tell you that COVID-19 deaths for fully-vaccinated people remain low, even as surges increased deaths for unvaccinated people, regardless of variant.

Read more : Did Study Show Pfizer Vaccine Altering Liver DNA In 6 Hours?!

Fact #10 : Vaccines Were Meant To Prevent Hospitalisation + Death

Peter McCullough falsely claimed that the 79% result was “prima facie evidence” that the COVID-19 vaccines failed to work against the Omicron variant.

The COVID-19 vaccines are not force fields – they cannot block infections. They were designed to prevent symptomatic infections, severe disease and death by training your own immune system to defend itself against the ancestral SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Omicron variant causes more breakthrough infections, but the COVID-19 vaccines continue to protect against severe disease leading to hospitalisations, and death from the Omicron variant.

The truth is – the COVID-19 vaccines still work well against the Omicron variants. They may not prevent infections, but they will ensure you have milder symptoms, and greatly reduce your risk of severe disease and death.

Fact #11 : Booster Doses Increase Protection Against Omicron

What Peter McCullough does not mention is the fact that you can improve your protection against the Omicron variant by getting a booster dose (or two).

A January 2022 study by the CDC showed that getting a third dose of any mRNA vaccine increases protection against both the Delta and Omicron variants.
