Did Pfizer Give Employees A Different COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did Pfizer give its employees a different COVID-19 vaccine from what it supplied to countries around the world?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Pfizer Gave Employees A Different COVID-19 Vaccine!

People are sharing a screenshot of an email, claiming or suggesting that it shows Pfizer giving its employees and contractors a different COVID-19 vaccine from what it supplied to countries around the world!

Infowars : Pfizer Whistleblower Leaks Company Email Offering “Separate and Distinct” COVID-19 Vaccines to Workers

Leaked Email: “The vaccine doses to be used for this program are separate and distinct from those committed by Pfizer to governments around the world and will not impact supply to national governments in any way.”

Whistleblower warns: “I know we employees at Pfizer were receiving different vaccines and/or placebos and this was the word around my site when I worked there.”

Truth : Pfizer Did Not Give Employees A Different COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another fake news created or promoted by anti-vaccine supporters, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Email Was Sent To Many People

First, let me point out that the “leaked email” wasn’t some top secret email that Pfizer did not want you to know.

It was actually sent out to all “on-site essential employees and contractors” working at Pfizer’s Pearl River research campus. In fact, the email stated clearly that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was being offered to all “site-essential” workers and contractors at Pfizer Global Supply, Worldwide Research, Development, and Medical / Global Product Development sites across the world.

I am pleased to inform you that we will begin offering COVID-19 vaccinations to eligible on-site essential colleagues and contractors over the next several weeks. As you are aware, Site-essential colleagues are the colleagues and contractors based at PGS [Pfizer Global Supply] and WRDM/GPD [Worldwide Research, Development, and Medical / Global Product Development] sites whose presence is required at a Pfizer location to ensure supply of our medicines and vaccines, critical research and development programs continue, and to maintain and keep secure our labs and buildings as defined by site management.

That means all those workers and contractors – thousands of them across the world, received a similar email, offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

In short – this wasn’t a secret at all. It appears that someone only dredged it up in 2024 because anti-vaccine supporters failed to prove that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was killing millions of people like they have been claiming over the past 3 years…

Fact #2 : It Was The Same Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine

The “leaked” email itself did not claim that Pfizer was giving its workers and contractors a different or special version of its mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. It only stated that the vaccine doses used in this vaccination program is “separate and distinct” from those vaccine doses that Pfizer already committed to governments across the world.

In other words – Pfizer reserved these vaccine doses for its essential workers and contractors, instead of diverting them from batches that were already committed to governments across the world. That’s why the email clearly stated that these vaccine doses will not impact supply to those governments.

The vaccine doses to be used for this program are separate and distinct from those committed by Pfizer to governments around the world and will not impact supply to national governments in any way.

To be fair – it is possible that English may not be the first language for those who read that and understood it differently…

What’s clear is that – those were the same Pfizer mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 that everyone around the world received. They were just reserved for essential Pfizer employees and contractors, and not taken from supply already promised to world governments.

Fact #3 : Only One Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Was Approved In Jan 2021

Making a COVID-19 vaccine isn’t like making a cocktail. You can’t just make a different COVID-19 vaccine, and use it, without getting it first approved by the FDA in the United States.

Obviously, only one Pfizer mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 was approved by the US FDA when this email was sent out on January 8, 2021.

And those who claim or suggested that Pfizer gave its employees and contractors a different COVID-19 vaccine have never provided any actual evidence to prove that.

Did Japan study show explosion of mRNA cancer deaths?!

Did a new study show that mRNA vaccines are behind the explosion of cancer deaths in Japan?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Japan study shows explosion of mRNA cancer deaths!

People are claiming or suggesting that a new study shows that mRNA vaccines are behind the explosion of cancer deaths in Japan!

Alex Jones : New Japanese Study Suggests mRNA Vaccines Behind Explosion of Cancer Cases in Japan during the Pandemic. I suggest the sun is yellow…

Recommended : Did Japan Declare Emergency Over mRNA Vaccine Cancers?!

 

Truth : Japan study does not show explosion of mRNA cancer deaths!

This appears to be another example of fake news by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Japan Continues To Support COVID-19 Vaccination

Let me start by quickly pointing out that Japan continues to support vaccination against COVID-19. In fact, its Health Ministry has officially designated the COVID-19 vaccine (translated archive) as a routine vaccination:

Starting from 2024, the new coronavirus vaccine will be considered a routine vaccination, and people aged 65 and over will be eligible for the vaccination.

The schedule for routine vaccinations is to be conducted once every fall and winter, based on data on the status of infectious diseases and the effectiveness of vaccines.

The type of COVID-19 vaccine (strain contained in the vaccine) used for routine vaccinations will be reviewed annually for the time being.

I should also point out that COVID-19 vaccinations continue to be supported by virtually every country in the world. That would not be the case if the COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to cause or accelerate cancer.

Fact #2 : Cureus Relies On Post-Publication Peer Review

These claims appear to be based on a Japanese study by Miki Gibo et. al. called “Increased Age-Adjusted Cancer Mortality After the Third mRNA-Lipid Nanoparticle Vaccine Dose During the COVID-19 Pandemic in Japan” (PDF).

Even though this paper was marked as “peer-reviewed”, the peer review process at Cureus is “unusually fast“, and Cureus relies on “post-publication peer review“, as its Editor in Chief John R. Adler explained to Retraction Watch in 2015:

Yes, Cureus has an unusually fast review process, which is an important part of the journal’s philosophy. We believe that post publication peer review, a focus of our journal through commenting and our unique SIQ process, is potentially a more powerful way to discern truth.

In other words – the pre-publication peer review appears to be superficial, and Cureus relies on the scientific community to peer-review the papers after publication.

Therefore, “peer-reviewed” studies published in Cureus can and do get retracted after further review, like the infamous article “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign” by Mead et. al.

Even if the paper was properly peer-reviewed by a prestigious journal, that would only be the first step in the scientific review process, which would include replication and verification, as well as criticism by other members of the scientific community.

Recommended : Cureus Retracts “Peer-Reviewed” COVID-19 Vaccines Paper!

Fact #3 : Study Does Not Show Cancer Deaths From mRNA Vaccines

The Gibo et. al. study only performed statistical analysis of publicly-available data to look at whether there has been any increase in cancer deaths. While such studies may suggest a potential issue with the COVID-19 vaccines, they cannot prove any correlation, much less causation.

In fact, the authors themselves admitted at the end of their paper that their findings have “not been clinically validated“, and that “further studies” are warranted.

Here are some reasons why this paper does not show a rise in cancer deaths in Japan and/or that they were caused by mRNA vaccines:

COVID-19 Vaccination Status Was Not Established

The study did not even establish the vaccination status of people included in the data, never mind how many actually received the third dose! The authors actually admitted that at the end of their long paper:

Further analytical statistics study by vaccination status is needed.

Japanese government data showed that as of April 2024, 80.4% received at least one dose, 79.5% received at least two doses, while just 67% received all three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. In other words – about ⅓ of the people in the study do not meet the definition of receiving the third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Recommended : Did COVID vaccines kill 14X more people than they saved?!

Japan Used A Mix Of COVID-19 Vaccines

Japan also used a mix of COVID-19 vaccines, not just mRNA vaccines. The study did not filter out those who received non-mRNA vaccines, so how can anyone use its analysis to tie any excess deaths to the mRNA vaccines???

There Was No Control Group

The study also lacked a control group – unvaccinated people. So how can anyone use its analysis to link any excess deaths to COVID-19 vaccines?

For all we know – the excess deaths may be attributed to unvaccinated cancer patients dying from COVID-19! After all, cancer patients are more likely to die from COVID-19 than healthy people.

Cancer Deaths Have Been Rising For Years

The study appears to focus only on three years – 2020, 2021, and 2022. However, if you look further back, you will see that deaths from cancer have been rising for years, as Professor Marc Veldhoen pointed out!

The greatest surge actually occurred between 2014 and 1995, before increasing at a slower rate. Then cancer deaths started picking up from 2019 – before the COVID-19 pandemic, and before mRNA vaccines were approved.

Recommended : Did study find Long COVID patients all received mRNA vaccine?!

Japan Has An Aging Population

Professor Veldhoen also pointed out that Japan has an ageing population, with over 30% of its people aged 65 years and older, while over 10% are 80 years and older.

This could easily explain the increase in cancer rates, as well as cancer deaths. Elderly people are less likely to survive cancer, after all.

Cancer Is Leading Cause Of Death In Japan

I should also point out that cancer has been the leading cause of death in Japan since 1981 (source), accounting for ⅓ of total deaths.

In fact, this 2023 study projects that cancer cases will rise by 13.1% from 2020 to 2050, based on data collected from 1975 to 2019.

Obviously, this increase in cancer cases has nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccines, because they were only approved at the end of 2020.

Fact #4 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist

Finally, there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and after billions of doses have been administered worldwide in the past 3 years – there is still no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

The US National Cancer Institute also clearly states that there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccines cause cancer, lead to recurrence, or lead to disease progression. It also pointedly stated that COVID-19 vaccines do not change your DNA.

Alex Jones Agrees To Shut Down Infowars?!

Did Alex Jones just agree to shut down Infowars, and pay Sandy Hook families $1.5 billion in damages?!

 

How Alex Jones Came To Shut Down Infowars!

Alex Jones has finally seen the light! After praying at a church for the first time in his life on Easter Sunday,  the notorious far-right and alt-right conspiracy theorist decided to shut down Infowars for good! He also promised to pay the Sandy Hook families the $1.5 billion in damages he tried to avoid earlier.

Amazingly, his path to redemption started with his deep distrust of his wife, Erika Wulff. When she took their daughter to an Easter Sunday celebration, he suspected that she was really there to get a little sugar from the new pastor, who was quite the hunk!

So he sent one of his trusted Infowars employees to follow her car from a distance, and another to join the Easter Sunday celebration with his family. The two-pronged strategy appeared to hit pay dirt, when one of them spotted Erika and her daughter disappear into the sacristy while looking for Easter eggs.

On receiving the message, Alex Jones rushed over to the church with his Bushmaster XM15-E2S and Glock 20SF, and a trench coat to hide them in. But Easter Sunday traffic slowed him down, and by the time he arrived, the Easter egg hunt was over, and people were filing in for the second service.

He spotted his wife and daughter in the front, but kept his peace – he didn’t want to start his own Sandy Hook “action”, without first catching his wife “in flagrante delicto”. So he sat quietly at the back, and waited for the opportune moment.

The pastor came forth to start the service, and Alex Jones could not help admiring how he was incredibly attractive. So young and fit. He looks like he has a six pack, and quite a dong, Jones thought to himself, before realising awkwardly that he started to get an erection.

Pressing his legs together to stifle his growing tumescence, Jones could not help listening to the hot young pastor speak about the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and what it meant. It was the first time he had ever heard the whole story and its significance. He always thought Jesus was crucified because he was a Casanova who got caught with a Roman noble lady!

Recommended : Did Michelle Obama Rape Child When She Was A Man?!

At the end of the sermon, Alex Jones was hit by three epiphanies. First, he realised he could not stop thinking about the hot pastor and that he might actually be gay, or at least bisexual. Secondly, he realised it is possible for his own moral “rebirth” if he just confess to his sins and repent. Finally, he realised how close he came to easily killing strangers out of (misplaced?) jealousy using legally-purchased firearms.

He sat stunned and speechless for the first time in his life, as people filed out of church. That’s when his wife and daughter spotted him looking catatonic, but with tears streaming down his fat cheeks, and wearing a black trench coat. His two Infowars employees also noticed that he wasn’t quite himself, and came over.

When they realised he was “packing heat”, Erika ordered them to quickly carry him to his car before people were aware that he almost wanted to commit mass murder. Heck, he could still do it, if they didn’t hurry!

They didn’t have to worry, because Alex Jones was not able to do anything but sob like the insecure little boy he always was, but with his eyes finally opened by his three epiphanies. What an awkward scene it was as they struggled to help him to his car, with people staring and wondering why he was bawling like a baby.

 

Alex Jones Decides To Shut Down Infowars!

When he got home, he ran to his computer on which he wrote so many fake stories. He wrote confession after confession – to his readers, to his family, and to the many people he falsely wrote about, and asked for their forgiveness.

He also asked his estranged family for forgiveness, and admitted that he was lying when he said he forgot details about his children because he ate too much chili. He sure loves chili, but it never made him forget anything.

Recommended : Infowars Proven Wrong About Biden Face Mask Mandate!

Then he told his employees that he would be shutting down Infowars for good, and offered them all six-months severance if they agreed to never write or post fake news again.

Alex Jones also wrote to the families of mass murders that he accused of faking their deaths, and said that he would no longer stonewall their lawsuits, and will gladly pay them what they were asking for. He was a billionaire, and even after paying everyone, he would have plenty of money left.

He then pledged to donate the rest of his money to charities, and will dedicate the rest of his life to stop the proliferation of fake news and guns in the United States.

That was when Alex Jones woke up in cold sweat, with a sense of impending doom. He tried to reach out to his laptop, as he felt the ache in his chest grow and spread down his left arm. If he could just reach it…

Does FDA Document Prove COVID Vaccine Shedding Is Real?!

Did an FDA document just prove that COVID-19 vaccine shedding is real?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA Doc Proves COVID Vaccine Shedding Is Real!

People are sharing articles (archive | archive) by Natural News and Infowars, which claimed or suggested that an FDA document just proved that COVID-19 vaccine shedding is real!

Here is an excerpt from those articles. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

PROOF: Documents from FDA, Pfizer show that COVID “vaccine” shedding is REAL

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

 

Truth : FDA Doc Does Not Prove COVID Vaccine Shedding Is Real!

This is yet another example of anti-vaccine fake news, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The FDA Document Is From 2015

Let me start by pointing out that the FDA document in question is almost 9 years old, being originally published in August 2015.

In other words –  it was published 4 years before the COVID-19 pandemic, and 5 years before the first COVID-19 vaccines were approved.

Fact #2 : FDA Document Does Not Apply To COVID-19 Vaccines!

The FDA document was an industry guidance paper (PDF) called Design and Analysis of Shedding Studies for Virus or Bacteria-based Gene Therapy and Oncolytic Products.

The title itself is clear – it only refers to “Virus or Bacteria-based Gene Therapy and Oncolytic Products“.

COVID-19 vaccines are not gene therapy (gene modification) products, and they are not oncolytic (cancer killing) products either. So the FDA document does not apply to them!

Fact #3 : Shedding Only Occurs With Live Attenuated Virus Vaccines

Vaccine shedding actually refers to viral shedding, which can only (potentially) occur with live attenuated virus vaccines. Such vaccines alters the virus to make it weakened or even harmless, but still “live”.

There are no COVID-19 vaccines that are based on the live attenuated SARS-CoV-2 virus. Therefore, vaccine shedding cannot possibly occur with any COVID-19 vaccine currently-approved by the WHO.

All currently-approved COVID-19 vaccines are based on other vaccine technologies like inactivated virus (killed virus), viral vector (using a different virus), mRNA (using mRNA instructions), or subunit vaccines (using isolated viral proteins).

To be clear – mRNA vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, highlighted in the Natural News and Infowars articles, do not cause vaccine shedding.

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

Fact #4 : Viruses Multiply, Vaccines Won’t

I should also point out that if the spike protein is so dangerous, then it is even more important to get vaccinated against COVID-19. After all, viruses multiply, while the vaccines won’t!

Even if we simply look at the mRNA vaccines alone, they contain a limited number of mRNA instructions that encode for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The mRNA instructions enter a limited number of cells, which then produce and display those spike proteins on their surfaces, to trigger our immune system.

If you are infected by the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus though, it quickly hijacks your cells to produce millions of copies – each covered with spike proteins, which then infect even more cells, in an ever-expanding chain reaction.

Until your immune system learns to stop and defeat the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it will keep producing millions and millions of viruses that will circulate through your body, delivering those nasty spike proteins everywhere.

So if you are really worried about the spike protein, you should really get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #5 : Natural News Is Known For Fake News

Natural News is a far-right, anti-vaccination conspiracy theory and fake news website that is known for publishing / promoting pseudoscience, disinformation, and far-right extremism.

Writing in the journal Vaccine, Anna Kata identified Natural News as one of numerous websites spreading “irresponsible health information”. According to John Banks, Natural News founder Mike Adams uses “pseudoscience to sell his lies” and is “seen as generally a quack and a shill by science bloggers.”

Dr. David Gorski called Natural News “one of the most wretched hives of scum and quackery on the Internet,” and the most “blatant purveyor of the worst kind of quackery and paranoid anti-physician and anti-medicine conspiracy theories anywhere on the Internet”.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from Natural News.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Did Bill Gates Say India’s Digital ID Must Be Mandatory In US?!

Did Bill Gates say that India’s digital ID must become mandatory in the United States?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bill Gates Says India’s Digital ID Must Become Mandatory In US!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that Bill Gates said that India’s digital ID must become mandatory in the United States!

Bill Gates Says India’s Digital ID Must Become Mandatory in America

Recommended : Is Bill Gates recruiting 2M Indians to control Internet using AI?!

 

Truth : Bill Gates Did Not Say India’s Digital ID Must Become Mandatory In US!

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

Fact #1 : Bill Gates Never Said India’s Digital ID Must Implemented In US

Let me start by pointing out that Bill Gates never said that India’s digital ID must be implemented in the United States, never mind made “mandatory”.

If Bill Gates actually suggested making India’s digital ID mandatory in the United States, it would not only have been reported widely by the mainstream media, and lambasted by people who don’t like such ideas. Yet, there was no such report, not even some social media outrage.

That’s because that never happened. The People’s Voice article, unsurprisingly, offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

The source of this nonsensical claim is a blog post by Bill Gates on his (upcoming) trip to India, called “India’s innovations are still changing the world“. Nowhere in that post does he mention implementing India’s digital ID, or making it mandatory in the United States.

Fact #2 : Aadhaar Is Not Mandatory In India

Aadhaar (आधार), India’s digital ID system, provides a 12-digit unique identity number based on the persons biometrics – 10 fingerprints, 2 iris prints, and a photo of the person’s face, as well as demographic data.

However, Aadhaar is not mandatory, and is an “opt-in” system, because it was developed to help provide targeted delivery of financial aid and other subsidies, benefits and services to the people of India.

In fact, the Supreme Court of India issued an interim order on 23 September 2023, that “no person should suffer for not getting Aadhaar“, and that the government cannot deny a service to a resident who does not possess Aadhaar, as it is voluntary and not mandatory.

Fact #3 : US Federalism Makes It Difficult For National ID

The United States of America is one of the few developed countries to not have a national identity card. It’s not for a lack of trying – there have been proposals to nationalise its ID cards.

Anyone, including Bill Gates, can call for a national identity card, whether digital or physical. So what? It’s not the first time anyone has suggested it, and it won’t be the last time either.

However, the United States was founded upon the idea of federalism, so attempts to create a national identity card have failed so far. As a result, Americans have to resort to using a number of documents to prove their identity or citizenship.

Recommended : Biden hired Bill Gates to flood Internet with AI censorship bots?!

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For 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:

Is Red Cross Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood?!

Is the American Red Cross rejecting blood from people who were vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines?!

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

 

Claim : Red Cross May Be Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood!

Some people are claiming or suggesting on X (formerly Twitter) that Red Cross may be rejecting blood from people who were vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines!

Alex Jones : COVID Vaxxed May Be Ineligible To Give Blood, Says Red Cross

Recommended : Did WEF Pass Law To Criminalise Criticism Of mRNA?!

 

Truth : Red Cross Is Not Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : This Eligibility Requirement Isn’t New

Let me start by pointing out that this eligibility requirement isn’t new. The American Red Cross posted about this in a Q&A (archive) on 28 July 2021. That’s 2.5 years ago!

The fact that some people are only realising this now isn’t shocking. What’s shocking is that they are actually making a fuss about it.

Fact #2 : Red Cross Isn’t Rejecting Any COVID Vaccinated Blood

I should also point out that the American Red Cross has not, and is not, rejecting any blood from people who were vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine.

This was stated clearly in their July 2021 Q&A on COVID-19 vaccines and blood, platelet, or plasma donation eligibility.

Q: Are individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine eligible to give blood, platelets and plasma?

A: Yes, you can donate blood after getting a COVID-19 vaccine, as long as you are symptom-free and feeling well at the time of the donation. Please come prepared to share the manufacturer name of the vaccine you received. If you do not know the name of the vaccine manufacturer, we request you wait two weeks to donate after vaccination, out of precaution.

Recommended : Did Alexei Navalny Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Red Cross Only Defers Some Blood Donations

The truth is Red Cross is only asking blood donors who received a “live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine” to wait two weeks before giving blood.

But guess what – no live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine has ever been approved anywhere in the world, as of 21 February 2024!

It appears that the Red Cross initiated this decision as far back as July 2021, out of an abundance of caution – because some donors may be a participant in a clinical trial involving a live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine, and kept it as a forward-looking requirement, when such COVID-19 vaccine is ever approved.

Eligible blood donors who received a live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine or do not know what type of COVID-19 vaccine they received must wait two weeks before giving blood.

Even that deferral isn’t set in stone, as it appears that the Red Cross will still accept blood donations from donors who are “symptom free and feeling well at the time of donation”:

In most cases, there is no deferral time for individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine as long as they are symptom free and feeling well at the time of donation.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History?!

Fact #4 : There’s No Deferral For Inactivated / RNA / mRNA Vaccines

In any case, all of the approved COVID-19 vaccines in the United States, and the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines, do not require any deferral, because they are based on the inactivated or RNA and mRNA vaccine technologies:

There is no deferral time for eligible blood donors who are vaccinated with an inactivated or RNA based COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca, Janssen/J&J, Moderna, Novavax, or Pfizer.

So why would anyone throw a (pretend?) hissy fit about something that has zero effect on blood donors in the United States?

Fact #6 : Red Cross Is Helping To Vaccinated People

Interestingly, the American Red Cross points out that while they are not a healthcare provider that administers COVID-19 vaccinations in the United States, its teams are helping to vaccinated US service members overseas!

The Red Cross, as an organization, is not a healthcare provider and is not administering COVID-19 vaccinations in the U.S. However, Red Cross volunteers who are medical professionals may work with local authorities to help give vaccinations if their state licenses permit them to do so. In addition, Red Cross teams are currently helping to vaccinate U.S. service members on bases around the world.

Yet again, it shows that the Red Cross does not have an issue with COVID-19 vaccinations. So why would anyone suggest otherwise???

Is Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza under investigation for murder for concealing COVID-19 vaccine deaths?!

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

 

Claim : Italian Health Minister Under Investigation For Vaccine Murder!

People are sharing an article (archive) by Vigilant News Network, claiming / suggesting that Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza is under investigation for murder for concealing COVID-19 vaccine deaths!

Italian Health Minister Under Investigation for Murder for Concealing COVID-19 Vaccine Deaths

Recommended : Were COVID-19 Vaccines Recalled After 40K Deaths?!

 

No Evidence Italian Health Minister Under Investigation For Vaccine Murder!

Let’s take a closer look at the claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Roberto Speranza Is Former Italian Health Minister

First, I should just point out that Roberto Speranza is the former Italian Health Minister, who served from 5 September 2019 to 22 October 2022.

The current Italian Health Minister is Orazio Schillaci, who has been serving in that capacity from 22 October 2022.

Fact #2 : Murder Investigation Claims Started In November

I should also point out that the viral claims of a Roberto Speranza murder investigation over COVID-19 vaccines originated in November 2023.

The Italian TV show ‘Fuori dal Coro‘ covered it, and so did the conservative Italian newspaper, La Verità. It was only some three weeks later that the story was picked up by English websites and social media users, including Infowars.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Of Roberto Speranza Murder Investigation

The Vigilant News Network article offered no actual evidence that former Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza is being investigated for murder for concealing COVID-19 deaths. It appears to be referring to what was “reported” by Greg Reese, an Infowars contributor.

In any case, these claims appear to originate from a photo of a document which allegedly shows Roberto Speranza and Nicola Magrini (Director-General of AIFA, the Italian Medicines Agency) being added to the registry of suspects at the Rome prosecutor’s office.

Neither the photo, nor the purported document, have been verified to be genuine. But even if the document was genuine, it doesn’t mean that the Rome prosecutor’s office has decided to prosecute Speranza or Magrini, or that an official investigation had actually started.

Fact #4 : Rome Prosecutor Appears To Decline Investigation

According to La Repubblica (archive) – a moderate Italian daily outlet, the “prosecutor’s office therefore decided not to proceed with the investigation.

If that La Repubblica news report is correct, that means the Rome prosecutor’s office had already decided not to investigate Roberto Speranza and Nicola Magrini in November 2023, if not earlier.

If that is the case, why would anyone still claim that Roberto Speranza is being investigated for murder over the COVID-19 vaccines?

Fact #5 : Complaints Were Forwarded With Dismissal Request

On November 23, 2023, Rai News (archive) – website of Italy’s national public broadcaster, published a story which quoted Roberto Speranza’s attorney Danilo Leva as saying that those complaints about the COVID-19 vaccines had been “forwarded to the competent Court of Ministers with a simultaneous request for dismissal“.

With regard to the press reports relating to the registration of the former minister Roberto Speranza in the register of suspects at the Rome prosecutor’s office – we read in the note – following some complaints regarding vaccines, it is specified that the documents were forwarded to competent court of ministers with simultaneous request for dismissal.

In other words, it appears that the Rome prosecutor’s office received some complaints about the COVID-19 vaccines, declined to investigate, and summarily forwarded them to the Court of Ministers with a request to dismiss them.

The Court of Ministers will have to make a formal decision on whether to dismiss the complaints, typically within 90 days. But from what we have seen so far – there does not appear to be any murder investigation involving the former Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza, or AIFA Director General Nicola Magrini.

Infowars Proven Wrong About Biden Face Mask Mandate!

Infowars has been proven wrong about its claims that the Biden Administration will introduce a face mask mandate in September 2023!

 

Claim : Biden Admin Will Order Face Mask Mandate!

People have been sharing an Infowars article which claimed that the Biden Administration will order a new face mask mandate for TSA and airport employees, followed by “full Covid lockdowns“. Here is an excerpt:

Biden Regime to Reinstate COVID-19 Restrictions Beginning with Mask Mandate as “COVID Cases Rise”, Say TSA and Border Patrol Whistleblowers

The Biden regime is preparing to reinstate full COVID-19 lockdowns, beginning with masking mandates for TSA and airport employees reportedly as early as mid-September, Infowars first to report.

Recommended : Is Biden Admin Bringing Back FULL COVID Restrictions?!

 

Infowars Proven Wrong About Biden Face Mask Mandate!

Infowars first claimed on August 18, 2023, that TSA and Border whistleblowers leaked information about a rollout of “full Covid restrictions”, which would include a face mask mandate in September, followed by full Covid lockdowns in December.

Well, it is now October 3, 2023, and there is nary a sight of any face mask mandate for TSA or airport employees in the United States. Infowars has been proven WRONG yet again.

Frankly, that’s hardly surprising. Alex Jones and/or Infowars never actually showed any evidence that the Biden Administration is planning to introduce a face mask mandate for air travel, much less full COVID-19 restrictions which would include lockdowns.

If you watch the video above, you can see that Alex Jones has a ton of paper on his table. Unfortunately, none of them were the leaked memorandum or policy documents from his TSA and Border Patrol whistleblowers.

Rather, they appear to be nothing more than printed copies of news articles! Alex Jones never showed any evidence of the “planned COVID-19 protocols” that were supposed to roll out in the middle of September 2023.

And it’s already October 2023, without a single TSA agent or Border Patrol officer required to wear a face mask in the United States.

Recommended : COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Stillbirth Surge In Singapore?!

I should point out that lockdowns are, frankly, no longer necessary because a combination of vaccines and prior infections have given people significant protection against COVID-19 infections.

Even though cases are spiking due to new variants (which are more adept at evading protection), hospitals and healthcare workers are no longer overloaded with COVID-19 patients. In fact, there has been multiple waves of new COVID-19 variants, but they have not necessitated new lockdowns.

That’s why the WHO itself declared on 5 May 2023 that COVID-19 as a whole is no longer a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Instead, COVID-19 is now considered “an established and ongoing health issue“.

Finally, I should also point out that any order for a face mask mandate on public transportation, including airlines, would be issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevent, not the TSA or Border Control.

It was the US CDC that issued the first and only face mask mandate for public transportation in the United States (PDF download) on January 29, 2021. The TSA and Border Control had nothing to do with that, but only issued their own directives to comply with the CDC order.

However, the CDC face mask mandate was made “unenforceable” by court order on April 18, 2022, and expired when the Biden Administration ended the COVID-19 public health emergency on May 11, 2023.

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

If the CDC ever issues another face mask mandate, it seems inevitable that it would be challenged in court, and made “unenforceable” by another court order. So what really is this panic over a “future” face mask mandate?

I should also point out that, long before the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers all over the world have had no issues wearing face masks to protect themselves and their patients. Seriously, stop being such a wuss.

Is Joe Biden Reinstating Face Mask + Lockdowns?!

Is the Biden Administration preparing to reinstate FULL COVID-19 lockdowns, beginning with face mask mandates in mid-September 2023?! Find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-08-30 : Added video fact check, and other updates

Claim : Biden Admin Is Reinstating Full COVID Lockdowns!

People are sharing an article by The Gateway Pundit, which claims that the Biden Administration is preparing to reinstate FULL COVID-19 lockdowns, beginning with face mask mandates in mid-September 2023!

The article is pretty long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Biden Regime to Reinstate COVID-19 Restrictions Beginning with Mask Mandate as “COVID Cases Rise”, Say TSA and Border Patrol Whistleblowers

The Biden regime is preparing to reinstate full COVID-19 lockdowns, beginning with masking mandates for TSA and airport employees reportedly as early as mid-September, Infowars first to report.

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

 

No Evidence Biden Administration Is Reinstating COVID Lockdowns!

The Gateway Pundit was basically just summarising what Infowars claimed, and here is what you need to know:

Fact #1 : Infowars Is Notorious Fake News Website

First, let me just point out that Infowars is notorious for posting conspiracy theories and fake news.

  • 2020 study by four universities – Northeastern, Harvard, Northwestern, and Rutgers, found that Infowars was amongst the top 5 most shared websites for COVID-19 fake news.
  • Infowars is listed as #4 on the Top 10 Worst Anti-Science Websites list.
  • Infowars video editor Josh Owens admitted to intentionally creating misleading videos – “It’s not about truth, it’s not about accuracy — it’s about what’s going to make people click on this video…In essence, we lied.

Both Alex Jones and Infowars have been subjected to multiple lawsuits, losing them one after another. In December 2022, he and the Infowars parent company was ordered to pay about $1.5 billion for spreading lies about the 2002 Sandy Hook mass shooting.

Based on its reputation, everything posted by InfoWars should be considered as FAKE NEWS until proven otherwise.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from InfoWars. Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Fact #2 : Alex Jones + Infowars Provided No Evidence

If you watch the Infowars video where Alex Jones detailed the “exclusive news” that the Biden Administration is planning to bring back FULL COVID-19 restrictions, you may be forgiven for thinking that all those papers on his table are leaked memorandum and policy documents that TSA and Border Patrol whistleblowers provided.

Unfortunately, that does not appear to be the case. While there is A TON of papers on his massive table, they appear to be nothing more than printed copies of news articles. Alex Jones never showed any evidence of the “planned COVID-19 protocols” that will roll out in the middle of September 2023.

It’s easy to make outlandish claims, it’s quite another thing to back them with actual evidence. Needless to say, Infowars offered ZERO evidence to back up its claims.

Recommended : COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Stillbirth Surge In Singapore?!

Fact #3 : Lockdowns Were Necessary Because There Was No Vaccine

In his video, Alex Jones said that his whistleblowers were told to expect “a return to the full COVID protocol of 2020/2021” by December 2023.

The problem with that claim is that many governments implemented lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, because there was no treatment and vaccines were not yet invented or available in sufficient quantities.

Lockdowns were used as a way to limit transmission, and prevent hospitals and healthcare workers from being overloaded with COVID-19 patients.

Now that many people have some protection from a prior infection, or from COVID-19 vaccines, there has been no new need for governments to implement new lockdowns. In fact, there has been multiple waves of new COVID-19 variants, but they have not necessitated new lockdowns.

So the claim that the Biden Administration is going to implement COVID-19 lockdowns in December 2023 over the new Eris EG.5 variant is not supported by the prevailing evidence.

Fact #4 : WHO Declared COVID-19 Is No Longer PHEIC

It is interesting that the whistleblowers mentioned that the World Health Organization (WHO) may declare (an emergency?) over the new EG.5 Eris variant.

For one thing, the WHO itself declared on 5 May 2023 that COVID-19 as a whole is no longer a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Instead, COVID-19 is now considered “an established and ongoing health issue“.

Fact #5 : Eris Variant Is Not More Dangerous

The WHO has been monitoring the new EG.5 “Eris” variant, designating it as a “variant of interest”. However, that does not mean Eris is a more dangerous variant.

According to the WHO, the EG. 5 variant has increased prevalence, growth advantage, and immune escape properties, but…

  • presents a low public health risk at a global level, and
  • has no reported changes in disease severity to date

While it is possible that EG.5 / Eris will become the dominant COVID-19 variant moving into the winter months of 2023, it has the same symptoms and severity as past variants.

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

Fact #6 : New Vaccines Are Coming In September 2023

Even if the Eris / EG.5 becomes dominant, it is unlikely for the United States to require lockdowns in December 2023, because new COVID-19 vaccines coming in September will offer better protection against it.

From late September 2023 onwards, Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax are introducing new COVID-19 vaccines that will target XBB variants. As EG.5 is part of the XBB lineage, the new vaccines are expected to offer better protection against this new variant.

EG.5 is part of the XBB lineage and is more closely related to the XBB variants than it is to previous vaccine strains.

For this reason, the expectation is that the reformulated vaccines that will be available this fall will offer better protection to EG.5 than previous vaccines.

– Justin Lessler, professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health

In short, there really isn’t a need for new lockdowns, because the improved COVID-19 vaccines are already coming in the fall of 2023.

Fact #7 : Biden Administration Does Not Want New Lockdowns

I should now point out that it is against the Biden Administration’s interest to implement new lockdowns, which would cripple the economy. In fact, the Biden Administration mentioned this when it released its National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan (PDF download) in March 2022.

The path forward in the fight against COVID-19 is clear: schools, workers, and workplaces have resources and guidance to prevent shutdowns.

Recommended : Is Biden Admin signing over US sovereignty to WHO?!

Fact #8 : Face Mask Order Would Be Issued By CDC

Finally, I should also point out that any order for a face mask mandate on public transportation, including airlines, would be issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevent, not the TSA or Border Control.

It was the US CDC that issued the first and only face mask mandate for public transportation in the United States (PDF download) on January 29, 2021. The TSA and Border Control had nothing to do with that, but only issued their own directives to comply with the CDC order.

Pfizer Added Tromethamine To COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids?!

Did Pfizer secretly add Tromethamine – a “heart attack drug” also known as Tris – to their COVID-19 vaccine for kids?!

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

 

Claim : Pfizer Secretly Added Tromethamine To COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids!

The Alex Jones Show, The Expose UK, Infowars, Natural News and other anti-vaccination websites have been pushing the claim that Pfizer secretly added Tromethamine to their newly-approved COVID-19 vaccine for kids!

They claimed that Pfizer added Tromethamine to their COVID-19 vaccine for kids, to reduce the risk of children getting heart attacks as a side effect.

A newly released document shows that drug giant Pfizer added a secret heart attack drug to the children’s version of its Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Advisory Committee that voted 17-0 to approve the jabs for children as young as five was notified that the children’s formulation of the drug contains tromethamine (Tris), a chemical that reduces blood acidity and stabilizes people who have suffered a heart attack.

Here are known side effects: Respiratory depression – local irritation- tissue inflammation – injection site infection – febrile response – chemical phlebitis – venospasm (vein spasms) – hypervolemia – IV thrombosis – extravasation (with possible necrosis and sloughing of tissues) – transient decreases in blood glucose concentrations – hypoglycemia, and Hepatic Necrosis with infusion via low-lying umbilical venous catheters.

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

 

Truth : Pfizer Did NOT Secretly Add Tromethamine To COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids!

This is yet another example of vaccine FAKE NEWS being created and propagated by anti-vaxxers to discourage the vaccination of children.

Pfizer did NOT “secretly” add Tromethamine to their newly-approved COVID-19 vaccine for children to reduce or prevent the risk of heart attacks in children.

Everything posted by Alex Jones, Infowars, Natural News or The Expose UK, must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

For those who want more information on why this is false, here are the reasons…

Fact #1 : It Was Public Information

Anti-vaccination websites and supporters are FALSELY claiming that Pfizer SECRETLY added Tromethamine (Tris) to the new paediatric COVID-19 vaccine.

The truth is – that was PUBLICLY AVAILABLE information that Pfizer and US FDA released in page 12 of the VRBPAC briefing document on 22 October 2021!

Pfizer/BioNTech are requesting authorization of a modified formulation of BNT162b2 to accommodate the 10-µg dose.

This modified formulation allows for an improved stability profile and greater ease of use at administration sites. The modified formulation uses a Tris buffer instead of phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and excludes sodium chloride and potassium chloride.

Authorization and future licensure of the modified formulation is based on analytical comparability to the currently authorized PBS containing formulation in accordance with CBER guidance. The change in buffer is not considered clinically significant.

By lying that it was a secret, they are trying to fool you into thinking that Pfizer was trying to slip tromethamine into the paediatric vaccine without the US FDA or the public knowing about it.

That’s not only easily proven false, it is intentionally deceitful.

Recommended : Did Bill Gates Call For Withdrawal Of COVID-19 Vaccines?

Fact #2 : Tromethamine Used To Stabilise Paediatric Pfizer Vaccine

By replacing the original phosphate-buffered saline in the new paediatric COVID-19 vaccine, it can now be stored in a normal refrigerator at 2-8°C for up to 10 weeks.

That is a HUGE 2.5X improvement over the current storage limit of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine :

  • originally, the vaccine could only be stored between 2-8°C for up to 5 days.
  • after further stability tests, the US FDA determined on 19 May 2021 that it can be stored between 2-8°C for up to 31 days.

There are no other changes to the vaccine, so only the change in the buffer could have accounted for the big jump in vaccine stability and longer storage time.

Fact #3 : Tromethamine Is NOT A Heart Attack Drug

Tris, which is short for tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane or tromethamine / trometamol / THAM in medical use, is an organic compound with MANY uses.

In biochemistry and molecular biology, it is used in buffer solutions (to maintain pH level) especially when there is a need to stabilise nucleic acids.

In medical use, Tris is used to treat metabolic acidosis, as an alternative to sodium bicarbonate. That’s its purpose in cardiac bypass surgery – to correct metabolic acidosis that may occur during or immediately after surgery.

Tromethamine is NOT a drug that treats heart attack. Neither is it capable of preventing heart attacks. So the claim is completely false and nonsensical.

If Tromethamine can actually prevent myocarditis / pericarditis, it would have been added to the Pfizer vaccine for adults and adolescents long ago.

Fact #4 : Tromethamine Is Used In The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has been using Tris or tromethamine as a buffer from the very beginning, to maintain its pH level and stabilise the nucleic acid macromolecules.

If Tris / Trometamol / Tromethamine is truly being added to prevent heart problems as a side effect, then the Moderna vaccine would not have the same problem with myocarditis or pericarditis.

Yet, the Moderna vaccine can similarly cause myocarditis / pericarditis in young males, just like the Pfizer vaccine.

This shows that Tris / Trometamol / Tromethamine has ZERO effect on heart problems.

Fact #5 : Only 0.15 mg Of Tromethamine In Each Dose

Each dose of the Pfizer paediatric COVID-19 vaccine contains 0.02 mg tromethamine and 0.13 mg of tromethamine hydrochloride.

For simplicity’s sake – that’s a total of 0.15 mg of Tromethamine in a single shot. There is 6X more sodium chloride (0.9 mg) than Tromethamine in that shot.

The maximum dose for tromethamine is 500 mg/kg when taken within an hour. A typical 5 year-old child weighs about 18 kg, so we should not exceed 9,000 mg or 9 grams.

In other words – the 0.15 mg of tromethamine in that Pfizer vaccine dose is just 0.00167% of the maximum dose a 5 year-old child can receive.

Fact #6 : Tromethamine Can Be Injected Intramuscularly

Many Google doctors who looked up tromethamine in the use of metabolic acidosis will see that it is usually administered intravenously, and immediately insist that it can only be administered intravenously.

That’s not true. For example, ketorolac tromethamine can either be injected intravenously or intramuscularly. Heck, it even comes in the form of eye drops and oral tablets!

It all depends on what it’s used for, and its formulation.

Fact #7 : Myocarditis / Pericarditis Is NOT Heart Attack

Antivaxxers are trying to conflate the existing myocarditis / pericarditis adverse effect, with a myocardial infarction (heart attack). They are completely different.

Myocarditis / pericarditis is the INFLAMMATION of the heart muscle (myocarditis) or outer lining of the heart (pericarditis), causing chest pain, shortness of breath or feelings of a pounding or fast-beating heart.

It is generally mild, and most will respond well to medicine and rest, and recover completely. They can usually return to normal daily activities once their symptoms improve / resolve.

Myocardial infarction is the IRREVERSIBLE DEATH of the heart muscle due to a PROLONGED LACK of oxygen supply. This is a medical emergency which will result in death if not treated quickly.

Individuals who survive a myocardial infarction will not recover completely, because you cannot restore the dead heart muscle.

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Causes More Myocarditis / Pericarditis Than Vaccines

The adult dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has a rare risk of causing myocarditis or pericarditis in adolescents and young males., but the paediatric Pfizer vaccine has SO FAR not caused any case of myocarditis or pericarditis.

However, what antivaxxers won’t tell you is that COVID-19 itself causes way more cases of myocarditis or pericarditis than the Pfizer vaccine!

For a better perspective of the risk of developing myocarditis, I created this comparison table for you :

Myocarditis Risk Per Million People Difference
COVID-19 Patient 450 +2208%
Pfizer Vaccine
(Adult Dose)
20 +2.6%
Normal Population 19.5 Baseline

As you can see, the risk of developing myocarditis is MUCH higher if your child gets infected with COVID-19, compared with getting a full dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

I have no idea if the myocarditis risk is truly lower with the paediatric dose, but it surely cannot be more than the full dose that is currently being administered to adolescents.

Pfizer added Heart Attack Drug to COVID Vaccine for Kids?!

Did Pfizer secretly add a heart attack drug, tromethamine (Tris), into their COVID-19 vaccine for kids? Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Pfizer Added Heart Attack Drug To COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids!

The Alex Jones Show, The Expose UK, Infowars, and Natural News are pushing a new claim – that Pfizer secretly added a heart attack drug to their newly-approved COVID-19 vaccine for kids!

They are suggesting that Pfizer added the drug, Tris, to their COVID-19 vaccine for kids, to reduce the risk of children getting heart attacks as a side effect.

A newly released document shows that drug giant Pfizer added a secret heart attack drug to the children’s version of its Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Advisory Committee that voted 17-0 to approve the jabs for children as young as five was notified that the children’s formulation of the drug contains tromethamine (Tris), a chemical that reduces blood acidity and stabilizes people who have suffered a heart attack.

Truth : Pfizer Did NOT Add Heart Attack Drug To COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids!

This is yet another example of vaccine FAKE NEWS being created and propagated by anti-vaxxers to discourage the vaccination of children.

Pfizer did NOT add any heart attack drug to their newly-approved COVID-19 vaccine for children to reduce or prevent the risk of heart attacks in children.

Everything posted by Alex Jones, Infowars, Natural News or The Expose UK, must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

For those who want more information on why this is false, here are the reasons…

Fact #1 : COVID-19 Causes More Myocarditis / Pericarditis Than Vaccines

The paediatric Pfizer vaccine has, SO FAR, not caused any case of myocarditis or pericarditis, but the sample size is currently too small to know for certain.

The adult dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has a rare risk of causing myocarditis or pericarditis in adolescents and young males.

However, what antivaxxers won’t tell you is that COVID-19 itself causes way more cases of myocarditis or pericarditis than the Pfizer vaccine!

For a better perspective of the risk of developing myocarditis, I created this comparison table for you :

Myocarditis Risk Per Million People Difference
COVID-19 Patient 450 +2208%

Antivaxxers are trying to conflate the existing myocarditis / pericarditis adverse effect, with a myocardial infarction (heart attack). They are completely different.

Myocarditis / pericarditis is the INFLAMMATION of the heart muscle (myocarditis) or outer lining of the heart (pericarditis), causing chest pain, shortness of breath or feelings of a pounding or fast-beating heart.

Fact #3 : Tris Is NOT A Heart Attack Drug

Tris, which is short for tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane or tromethamine / trometamol / THAM in medical use, is an organic compound with MANY uses.

In biochemistry and molecular biology, it is used in buffer solutions (to maintain pH level) especially when there is a need to stabilise nucleic acids.

In medical use, Tris is used to treat metabolic acidosis, as an alternative to sodium bicarbonate. That’s its purpose in cardiac bypass surgery – to correct metabolic acidosis that may occur during or immediately after surgery.

Tris is NOT a drug that treats heart attack. Neither is it capable of preventing heart attacks. So the claim is completely false and nonsensical.

Fact #4 : Tris Is Used In The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has been using Tris or tromethamine as a buffer from the very beginning, to maintain its pH level and stabilise the nucleic acid macromolecules.

If Tris / Trometamol / Tromethamine is truly being added to prevent heart problems as a side effect, then the Moderna vaccine would not have the same problem with myocarditis or pericarditis.

Yet, the Moderna vaccine can similarly cause myocarditis / pericarditis in young males, just like the Pfizer vaccine.

This shows that Tris / Trometamol / Tromethamine has ZERO effect on heart problems.

Fact #5 : Tris Is Used To Stabilise Paediatric Pfizer Vaccine

In the new paediatric version of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, Tris replaced phosphate-buffered saline, thereby allowing the vaccine to be stored in a normal refrigerator at 2-8°C for up to 10 weeks.

It isn’t even a secret, as Pfizer openly pointed this out in the VRBPAC Briefing Document for their newly-approved paediatric COVID-19 vaccine.

This modified formulation allows for an improved stability profile and greater ease of use at administration sites.

The modified formulation uses a Tris buffer instead of phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and excludes sodium chloride and potassium chloride.

The change in buffer is not considered clinically significant.

Pfizer will also use this Tris buffer in updated versions of its COVID-19 vaccine for adults and adolescents.

Fact #6 : Tromethamine Can Be Injected Intramuscularly

Many Google doctors who looked up tromethamine in the use of metabolic acidosis will see that it is usually administered intravenously, and immediately insist that it can only be administered intravenously.

That’s not true. For example, ketorolac tromethamine can either be injected intravenously or intramuscularly. Heck, it even comes in the form of eye drops and oral tablets!
