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!

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.

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.

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???

Did Joesthetics / Jo Lindner Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did bodybuilding star Joesthetics / Jo Lindner die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine at just 30 years of age?!

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

Updated @ 2023-07-07 : Added some extra information
Originally posted @ 2023-07-03

 

Claim : Joesthetics / Jo Lindner Died Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Jo Lindner, popularly known as Joesthetics on YouTube, died suddenly at home, some people immediately claimed that the popular bodybuilding influencer died from the COVID-19 vaccine or steroid use!

Truth : Joesthetics / Jo Lindner Died From Ruptured Aneurysm!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all sudden deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Joesthetics / Jo Lindner Died From Ruptured Aneurysm

Jo Lindner (born 14 January 1993) was a bodybuilding influencer who is better known as Joesthetics on YouTube.

Just before 4 PM on Friday, June 30, 2023, Jo Lindner was getting ready for a gym session with his bodybuilding friend, Noel Deyzel, when he died suddenly from a ruptured aneurysm.

This was confirmed by his girlfriend, Nicha, who was cuddling with Lindner when he suddenly died. She also said that Lindner had been complaining of neck pain for three days, but did not seek medical attention for it.

Jo is the best place everyone.

Yesterday his past away by aneurysm .. I was there with him in the room.. he put on the necklace in my neck that he made for me ..than ..we was just lay down cuddle..waiting the time to go meet Noel at the gym at 16.00 .. he was in my arms.. than this is just happening too fast.. 3 days ago he kept said that he pain his neck .. we not really realize it… until it too late.

Nicha noticeably did not blame the COVID-19 vaccine for his death, or claim that he died from a vaccine side effect.

Fact #2 : Joesthetics Had A Muscle Condition

Just three weeks earlier – on June 7, 2023, Jo Lindner appeared on Bradley Martyn’s Raw Talk where he revealed that he suffers from rippling muscle disease (RMD) – a rare neuromuscular disorder characterised by increased muscle irritability.

RMD is a genetic disorder, caused by mutations in the CAV3 gene. The same CAV3 genetic mutations can also cause cardiomyopathies (heart muscle problems), although there is no evidence that RMD is associated with aneurysm.

The heart is also a muscle, that’s my biggest concern that what if I get such a bad cramp that my heart gets a cramp.

Fact #3 : Joesthetics Was On Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Just one day before he died, Jo Lindner posted about going back on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) after losing the gains he made earlier. He also warned his fans about the risks of going on TRT.

When I lost my gains because I went off everything for 1 year but then could not recover my own test levels so went back on trt. Trust me I tried to stop but be aware it might have long term effects for your life. Trt is a big commitment keep that in mind

However, there is no evidence that TRT can aggravate or cause an aneurysm to rupture.

Fact #4 : Joesthetics Was Taking Anabolic Steroids

Jo Lindner admitted earlier that he took anabolic steroids, and said that he had no idea how harmful they could be for his health. He shared that he developed gynaecomastia – the abnormal enlargement of male breast tissue, together with ‘burning nipples’.

During his recent Raw Talk podcast with Bradley Martyn, Joesthetics said that he was taking 75 mg of “tren” in addition to 250 mg of “test” (testosterone) a week. Tren, which is short for trenbolone, is an androgen and anabolic steroid used to increase muscle growth.

Anabolic steroids can cause a variety of cardiovascular problems, from hypertension and thrombosis to heart attacks and weakness of the connective tissue. Dissection of the ascending aorta is particularly associated with bodybuilders using anabolic steroids. Although it is atypical, aortic dissection can present with pain in the neck.

Fact #5 : Joesthetics Was Taking Marijuana

In his Raw Talk podcast with Bradley Martyn, Joesthetics said that he had been taking weed (marijuana / cannabis) for about 6 years.

While cannabis use has not be associated with the development or rupture of aneurysms, a January 2022 study published in the journal Stroke, showed routine marijuana users have a poorer outcome after an aneurysm rupture:

We’re all vulnerable to a bleeding stroke or a ruptured aneurysm; however, if you’re a routine marijuana user, you may be predisposed to a worse outcome from a stroke after the rupture of that aneurysm.
– Michael T. Lawton M.D., senior author of the study, and President and CEO of Barrow Neurological Institute

Fact #6 : Joesthetics Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

In his recent Raw Talk podcast with Bradley Martyn, Joesthetics said that he received four doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. However, he did not reveal which vaccine he received, so claims that he received the Pfizer or mRNA vaccine are unsubstantiated.

Jo Lindner lives in Thailand, where four different COVID-19 vaccines were offered – the vast majority were from Sinovac or AstraZeneca, with a small proportion from Pfizer:

  • Sinovac : about 47% of doses
  • AstraZeneca : about 45.5% of doses
  • Pfizer : about 6% of doses
  • Janssen : about 1.5% of doses

With the exception of the Janssen vaccine, the other three COVID-19 vaccines were approved for use as the 3rd and 4th (booster) doses, so it is possible that Jo Lindner never received the Pfizer / mRNA vaccine at all.

Joesthetics also claimed that his “doctor” found heavy metals in his blood after he got vaccinated against COVID-19, and recommended that he undergo plasmapheresis. No approved COVID-19 vaccine contains heavy metal, so that’s a really peculiar claim.

In any case, Joesthetics underwent plasmapheresis twice to clean his blood of heavy metals. So even if you believe that COVID-19 vaccines contain heavy metals (they don’t), Jo Lindner had his blood “cleansed” TWICE, so it would be illogical to still claim that he died from the COVID-19 vaccines.

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

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Create An Aneurysm

Just in case there is any doubt, COVID-19 vaccines cannot create an aneurysm.

An aneurysm is a physical weakening of an artery that bulges into a blood-filled balloon. Small aneurysms generally do not produce any symptoms unless they rupture. Large ones, however, may exert pressure on nearby nerves and tissues causing symptoms like numbness, weakness, paralysis, etc.

When an aneurysm ruptures, the person will experience a sudden and extremely severe pain and even vomiting and seizures, before losing consciousness. If not quickly treated, the resulting haemorrhage causes death. Getting vaccinated does not increase your risk of developing aneurysms, but these risk factors will:

  • genetic predisposition, like connective tissue disorders, polycystic kidney disease, history of aneurysm in close family members
  • untreated hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • cigarette smoking
  • drug abuse, especially cocaine or amphetamines (because they raise blood pressure)
  • intravenous drug abuse, which causes infectious mycotic aneurysms
  • anabolic steroid use, which causes high blood pressure and atherosclerotic effects
  • age over 40

Fact #8 : Aneurysm is Not A Vaccine Side Effect

The claim that aneurysm is in the list of vaccine side effects is nonsense and based on the (intentional?) misunderstanding of the Adverse Events of Special interest (AESI) list.

The AESI list is not a list of vaccine side effects. It’s a list of mostly non-specific adverse events that are monitored post-vaccination, and includes COVID-19 and other infections, as well as:

  • manufacturing and lab test issues like “Manufacturing laboratory analytical testing issue, Manufacturing materials issue, Manufacturing production issue“.
  • product supply issues like “Product availability issue, Product distribution issue, Product supply issue“.

They are obviously not vaccine side effects, nor related in any way to the performance or safety of the vaccine.

Fact #9 : Claims Of COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Often Proven False

Most claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next death or tragedy…

Jamie Foxx Blind + Paralysed by Vaccine Blood Clot?!

Is Jamie Foxx now blind and partially paralysed after suffering a brain blood clot caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Jamie Foxx Now Blind + Paralysed By COVID Vaccine Blood Clot!

People are sharing articles about Jamie Foxx being blind and partially paralysed after suffering a blood clot in his brain (stroke) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. Here are selected quotes from those articles:

The Django Unchained star is said to be “partially paralyzed and blind,” in addition to a series of other complications after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, Hollywood journalist A.J. Benza claimed after speaking to a source close to Foxx.

“Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot, but the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it,” confessed the podcaster — who formally worked as a columnist for the New York Daily News and as a host of the E! series Mysteries and Scandals — during an appearance on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s online show “Ask Dr. Drew.”

“The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind,” Benza alleged, as he insisted his insider was “someone in the room” with first-hand knowledge of Foxx’s hospitalization.

“I am thinking, ‘Is that why he blew up on the set a week before this medical emergency happened?'” the veteran journalist asked Pinsky. “Is that why he fired three or four people because he had had it with these mandates?”

Journalist A.J Benza is now claiming that the actor’s health has worsened due to a “blood clot in his brain.” The journalist added that the clot has led to Jamie being “partially blind and paralyzed.”

The journalist has said that a well-placed source tells him that the reason behind Foxx’s mysterious illness was a COVID vaccine. He also adds that the actor was pressured into taking the vaccine. “Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot, but the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it,” Benza claimed.

He also made a shocking revelation when he added, “The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind.”

No Evidence Jamie Foxx Is Blind / Paralysed From Vaccine Blood Clot!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Jamie Foxx Suffered Unspecified Medical Emergency

I should point out that, as of May 2023, no one knows what exactly happened to Jamie Foxx.

Born Eric Marlon Bishop on December 13, 1967, Jamie Foxx was in Atlanta, Georgia filming his Netflix movie, Back in Action, when he suffered a “medical emergency” on April 11, 2023.

The medical emergency apparently occurred off the set, and he was taken to a hospital. His daughter, 29 year-old actress Corinne Foxx, was the one who announced his condition to the world, but she refused to divulge what that medical emergency was.

On June 1, Nick Cannon shared how he was asked to replace Jamie Foxx on Beat Shazam, and pointed out that Foxx will tell his fans what really happened when he’s ready, but not before then.

One thing I’ve always respected about how Jamie’s moved throughout his entire career, if you’ve noticed, he’s always been somebody who is extremely professional and extremely private.

The information that is out there is the information that they want to be out there… I believe when he’s ready, he’s going to address the awaiting fans in the world the way that only he can.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Had Blood Clot In Brain

Initially, people speculated that Jamie Foxx suffered a ruptured aneurysm like Tom Sizemore, but there was no evidence of that at all.

Now, A.J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx actually suffered from “a blood clot in his brain”, but provided no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. Could that be a doctor or nurse violating the HIPAA law, or a hospital cleaner with no medical knowledge? Who knows?

Interestingly, one of Jamie Foxx’s close friends earlier told Media Take Out that Foxx suffered a brain bleed (haemorrhage) that was discovered when he sought medical attention for headaches. His friend said that he had been suffering from severe headaches frequently.

A brain haemorrhage causes a haemorrhagic stroke, while a blood clot causes an ischaemic stroke. They are both “strokes”, but with completely different treatments. So which is it?

Until and unless Jamie Foxx or his family reveals his medical condition, it is unknown if he suffered from a ruptured aneurysm, a haemorrhagic stroke, or an ischaemic stroke.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Is Blind / Paralysed

A.J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx is now blind and partially paralysed, but offered no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. His claims run contrary to previous updates by Jamie Foxx’s daughter and friends.

Back in April 2023, one of his close friends disclosed that the doctors consider the bleed to be minor, and that Jamie Foxx is expected to make a full recovery.

On 12 May 2023, his daughter – Corinne Foxx, posted an update criticising rumours that Jamie Foxx’s condition had worsened:

Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support.

Then, on May 15, Fox announced that Jamie and Corinne Foxx will host a music game show called We Are Family on its network in 2024. Corinne Foxx confirmed it on her Instagram the same day:

WE ARE FAMILY coming 2024!🎶👨‍👧🪩 The Foxx Family is headed back to our home on @foxtv & we can’t wait for this new show! 🦊📺

All that suggest that Jamie Foxx is not blind or partially paralysed. While he can certainly play pickleball and host a show while partially paralysed, it would be impossible for him to do both while blind!

I should also point out that Corinne Foxx and Jamie Foxx’s good friend, Dave Brown, were both seen visiting a physical rehabilitation centre in Chicago, which treats patients with stroke, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. This suggests that Jamie Foxx is undergoing physical therapy for some kind of impairment.

Fact #4 : No Evidence Booster Dose Required On Film Set

A.J. Benza suggested that the “blood clot in the brain” was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine Jamie Foxx was forced to receive to work on the movie, Back in Action.

While many movie sets require the cast and crew members to be fully-vaccinated, there does not appear to be any requirement for booster doses. A.J. Benza certainly offered no evidence Jamie Foxx was “pressured” to get a COVID-19 vaccine dose before he could work on the movie.

Fact #5 : Jamie Foxx + Corinne Foxx Never Mention COVID-19 Vaccines

More importantly, neither Jamie Foxx nor his daughter, Corinne, mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine as the cause of his “medical complication”. Corinne Foxx posted several times about her father, and Jamie Foxx himself posted a short message on Instagram on May 4:

Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed

If the COVID-19 vaccine really caused his medical condition, they would have spoken up about it. Yet, neither did so.

Read more : Did Jamie Foxx Get Aneurysm From Covid-19 Vaccine?!

Fact #6 : Jamie Foxx Was Likely Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Jamie Foxx was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.

It is possible that he may not even be vaccinated, as the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States. In addition, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

That said, Jamie Foxx was likely fully vaccinated by July 2021, when he joined action-thriller film God is a Bullet, which required its cast to be fully-vaccinated.

Fact #7 : VITT / TTS Have A Unique Presentation

As Jamie Foxx likely received his COVID-19 vaccination by July 2021, he would likely have received one of the three approved vaccines in the United States:

  • the Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY vaccine,
  • the Moderna Spikevax vaccine, or
  • the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are based on mRNA technology, which introduce a small risk of developing myocarditis in children and young adults, but neither have been shown to cause blood clots.

Only virus vector vaccines, like the AstraZeneca and Janssen vaccines, can potentially cause blood clots as a side effect. Those virus vector vaccines can induce a rare and unique combination of blood clots with low platelet counts, a condition now called:

  • Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), or
  • Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT)

If Jamie Foxx did indeed suffer a blood clot from the Janssen vaccine, it would be easy to diagnose, as he would have both blood clots as well as low platelet counts, which can cause bleeding.

Fact #8 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Jamie Foxx was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses almost two years ago.

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false in every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Did US Intentionally Release COVID Virus In Wuhan?!

Did the US government intentionally release the COVID-19 virus in Wuhan, to trigger a global pandemic so that people will accept vaccines?!

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

 

Claim : US Intentionally Released COVID Virus In Wuhan!

People are sharing an article by The Standard newspaper in Hong Kong, in which David Martin claimed that the US government intentionally released the COVID-19 virus in Wuhan, to trigger a global pandemic so that people will accept vaccines!

The article is being shared not only by anti-vaccination activists and conspiracy theorists, but also pro-CCP netizens and the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) as “evidence” that the COVID-19 pandemic was caused by the United States, and not China.

Here is an excerpt from the article. It’s long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

US ‘intentionally released Covid virus in Wuhan’ EU summit told

The Covid-19 coronavirus was “intentionally released” by the United States in Wuhan, China, with the target to trigger a global pandemic to raise public acceptance of vaccines, a US businessman specializing in patent auditing said.

David Martin, the founding chairman of M Cam asset management company, said at an International Covid Summit organized by the European Parliament in Brussels earlier this month that the US was responsible for the making of both coronaviruses causing the outbreaks of severe acute respiratory syndrome – or SARS – in 2003 and the Covid-19 pandemic in the past three years.

Recommended : Why International COVID Summit III Criticised Vaccine!

 

Truth : US Did Not Release COVID-19 Virus In Wuhan!

This appears to be yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media platforms like TikTok and Twitter, and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : International COVID Summit III Was Not Organised By EU Parliament

The article wrongly states that the International COVID Summit III was organised by the European Parliament.

As I explained in my previous article, the International COVID Summit III was not an official EU Parliament event. It appears to be a private conference organised by COVID-19 conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists.

Held in the Anna Lindh room of the European Parliament, it was not an official EU or European Parliament event, and only 5 MEPs attended as “co-hosting members” of the event.

In other words – the speakers at this event was only “testifying” to the few attendees in the room, and to the event’s livestream, not to the European Parliament.

You can read all about the ICS3 in my earlier article, Why International COVID Summit III Criticised Vaccine!

Fact #2 : This Was The First International COVID Summit

The article also wrongly called it the “third edition of the summit”. The first International COVID Summit, and International COVID Summit 2 do not appear to exist!

What actually existed were the Global COVID-19 Summit, and the 2nd Global COVID-19 Summit, but they are both completely unrelated to this International COVID Summit III. Those were official events involving heads of states and governments, as well as heads of international organisations, NGOs, and industries across the world.

So why would this International COVID Summit jump to its “third” iteration, when this was really the first time it was held? Could it be trying to mislead people into thinking that it was the third version of the Global COVID-19 Summit?!

Fact #3 : Coronavirus Was First Isolated In 1930s

David Martin said that the first coronavirus as a model of a pathogen was isolated in 1965. Well, I have no idea what he meant by “as a model of a pathogen”, but that’s wrong on several counts.

  • first coronavirus sample (IBV) was isolated in 1930s
  • second coronavirus sample (MHV) was isolated in 1947
  • third coronavirus sample (B814) was isolated in 1961
  • fourth coronavirus sample (229-E) was isolated in 1966
  • all four virus samples were determined to be from same group, and named “coronavirus” in 1967

You can read more about this in my earlier article – Did US + UK Create COVID-19 As Bioweapon?!

Fact #4 : Vaccines Work Even When Virus Mutates

All viruses can mutate when they replicate, just like how all animals evolve through reproduction. Just because a virus mutates does not mean that vaccines stop working.

Vaccines are training programs that teach our immune system how to identify the actual virus, and make its own antibodies against it. It’s like training your army by showing them how the enemy soldiers look like and behave, so they can train and prepare for war.

The vaccines do not stay in your body to fight the COVID-19 virus. They only teach your immune system how to do that, and they do that regardless of whether the virus has mutated or not.

As viruses evolve, they may get better at evading the antibodies that your immune system developed to defeat them. But that doesn’t mean they are immune. The antibodies may not be as effective, but they will still offer some protection, reducing the risk of severe disease and death.

This isn’t just theory. During the pandemic, the first vaccines only targeted the original SARS-CoV-2 virus. But it continued to offer robust protection against the Beta, Delta, and Omicron variants that came after.

Fact #5 : No Evidence US Released COVID-19 Virus In Wuhan

Claims that the US released the COVID-19 in Wuhan to create the pandemic has been circulating since 2020, but until today – there has been ZERO EVIDENCE of that.

Pro-CCP netizens and the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) accused US soldiers like Maatje Benassi of spreading the COVID-19 virus while participating in the 2019 Military World Games. They even spread a fake video (see below), claiming to show an American soldier spreading the COVID-19 virus in a subway in Wuhan.

However, all of those claims have long been proven to be completely false. More importantly, David Martin himself did not offer any actual evidence that the US released the COVID-19 virus, intentionally or otherwise, in Wuhan.

Recommended : Was COVID-19 Created In Fort Detrick Bio Lab?

Fact #6 : Most COVID-19 Vaccines Developed By Foreign Companies

The claim that the US government would create a pandemic to drive demand for vaccines is ludicrous. For one thing – big pharmaceutical companies are public-listed companies, and many are based outside of the United States.

More importantly – most COVID-19 vaccines were developed by foreign companies:

  • Only the Moderna Spikevax vaccine was developed in the United States
  • The Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine was developed by German company, BioNTech
  • The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine was developed by Oxford University, and AstraZeneca is a UK company.
  • The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine was developed by Janssen Vaccines in the Netherlands.
  • The Sinovac, Sinopharm, CanSino COVID-19 vaccines were developed in China.

So the conspiracy theory that the United States created the COVID-19 pandemic for profit is absurd…

Fact #7 : Vaccines Are Cheaper Than Cures

I should also point out that prevention is always better and CHEAPER than the cure. Vaccines may seem expensive, and a way for Big Pharma to make billions of dollars. But vaccines are still better and CHEAPER than the cures.

Vaccines prevent you from developing severe COVID-19, thus negating your need to be hospitalised – which is expensive. Sure, Big Pharma now has drugs to treat COVID-19, like PAXLOVID, but they are much more expensive.

When it comes to dollars and common sense, vaccines are cheaper and better because they prevent hospitalisation. Big Pharma would make far more money selling you everything from expensive new drugs like PAXLOVID, or machines and drugs to keep you alive in the ICU!

Did CDC Quietly Recall Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did the US CDC just quietly recall the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, because it caused too many deaths and injuries?!

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

 

Claim : CDC Just Quietly Recalled Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine!

People are claiming that the US CDC just quietly recalled the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, because it caused too many deaths and injuries!

Died Suddenly : The checks have been cashed and the mission has been accomplished. They think they can begin to quietly roll back and that we will just forget.

Millions are injured, and millions are dead or dying slowly. Never forget what they have done.

Dr. Anastasia Maria Loupis : COVID Vaccine pulled from US – No CDC comment.

Andrew Bridgen : Just like the AstraZeneca vaccine, the Johnson and Johnson vaccine has been quietly withdrawn and stocks destroyed. Both of these products were actually a strand of DNA and used an Adenovirus vector to enter the cells. Where are the national media headlines?…

TaraBull : Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine has been pulled from the U.S. amid health concerns. Should Pfizer be next?

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

 

Truth : CDC Did Not Recall Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

Fact #1 : Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine Use Limited In May 2022

The Janssen COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson received an Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) from the FDA on February 27, 2021.

However, the FDA later limited its use on 5 May 2022, because it was shown to introduce a small risk of developing thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) – the same problem affecting the AstraZeneca vaccine.

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 older monovalent vaccines like the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

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

Fact #3 : US CDC Did Not Recall Janssen COVID-19 Vaccines

Just to be clear – the US CDC did not recall the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson.

The US CDC only updated its Janssen COVID-19 vaccine information page on May 10, 2023 to inform the public that the vaccine is no longer available in the United States.

Claims that the CDC did not mention any reason for this decision are also false. The CDC specifically said that the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine is no longer available in the US, because all remaining stock expired on May 7, 2023!

Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is no longer available in the U.S. All remaining U.S. government stock of Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine expired May 7, 2023. Dispose of any remaining Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.

Fact #4 : US CDC Recommends Boosting With Bivalent Vaccines

The CDC recommended that those who received one or two doses of the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine should receive one dose of the new bivalent mRNA vaccine from Moderna or Pfizer.

People ages 18 years and older who received 1 or 2 Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine dose are recommended to receive 1 bivalent mRNA dose (Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech) at least 2 months after completion of the previous dose.

Did Switzerland Just Stop All COVID-19 Vaccinations?!

Did Switzerland just order a stop to all COVID-19 vaccinations?!

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

 

Claim : Switzerland Stops All COVID-19 Vaccinations!

People are sharing an article by Report24, as evidence that Switzerland has stopped all COVID-19 vaccinations:

@USMortality : Switzerland stops the Covid vaccinations: All vaccination recommendations have been withdrawn, doctors can only administer the controversial vaccines in individual cases under certain conditions – but then bear the risk of liability for vaccination damage.

Robert W Malone, MD : “News from the Front Lines Switzerland bans the COVID vaccines, Spike protein kills brain cells, AAPS updates, Twitter at war with Sbstck.”

Robert W Malone, MD : This is big news! “Switzerland stops the Covid vaccinations: All vaccination recommendations have been withdrawn””

PeterSweden : BOMBSHELL NEWS🚨🚨🚨

Switzerland is STOPPING the covid shots except under special circumstances.

And doctors will now be held LIABLE for injuries from giving it to patients.

Here is a machine translated excerpt from the really long German article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

BREAKING: Switzerland withdraws all Covid vaccination recommendations

Switzerland stops the Covid vaccinations: All vaccination recommendations have been withdrawn, doctors can only administer the controversial vaccines in individual cases under certain conditions – but then bear the risk of liability for vaccination damage. When will countries like Germany and Austria follow this example?

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

 

Truth : Switzerland Did Not Stop All COVID-19 Vaccinations!

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

Fact #1 : Swiss COVID-19 Recommendations Are Available In 4 Languages

First, let me point out that the latest COVID-19 vaccination recommendations by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH / BAG) are available in both English and German, as well as French and Italian.

So there is no reason to rely on the German article posted by Report24, because you can directly read what the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health actually said.

Fact #2 : Switzerland Does Not Recommend Vaccination For Spring + Summer 2023

In its latest COVID-19 vaccination recommendations, the FOPH does not recommend COVID-19 vaccination for spring / summer 2023, because:

  • nearly everyone (98%) in Switzerland has protection against COVID-19 from vaccination and/or having contracted and recovered from COVID-19,
  • the virus is likely to circulate less in spring / summer 2023, and
  • the current virus variants cause rather mild illness

However, that recommendation may change if “a wave of infection were to emerge in spring / summer 2023“.

In addition, it has not made any recommendation for autumn 2023, because that depends on the situation later in the year – whether there is a new variant or wave of infection.

It makes sense for Switzerland to stop recommending COVID-19 vaccination. After all, it had already achieved herd immunity with 98% of its population already protected through a combination of vaccination and prior infections.

Recommended : Did FAA Admit Pilot EKGs Not Normal After Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : Switzerland Did Not Stop All COVID-19 Vaccinations

While Switzerland no longer recommends COVID-19 vaccination for the next six months, it did not actually order a stop to all COVID-19 vaccinations.

In fact, the FOPH pointed out that “vaccination may be wise in individual cases, as it improves protection against developing severe COVID-19 for several months” and that the advice “applies regardless of the number of vaccinations” already received.

The FOPH also maintained its advice on vaccination timing and vaccine type to be used:

Vaccination Timing

The COVID-19 vaccination can be given from 6 months after the last COVID-19 vaccination or from 6 months after a known coronavirus infection. Other vaccinations with inactivated vaccines can also be administered before, at the same time as or after a COVID-19 vaccination.

Vaccine

We advise you to get vaccinated with a bivalent (i.e. variant-adapted) mRNA vaccine or with the protein-based Novavax vaccine. Which vaccine(s) you have previously received is of no importance here. Monovalent mRNA vaccines continue to provide good protection against severe COVID-19 with possible hospitalisation.

Please note: If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have a severely weakened immune system, you should get yourself vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine.

Fact #4 : Not Recommended Vaccination At Own Cost + Own Risk

Because the FOPH no longer recommends COVID-19 vaccinations for spring / summer 2023, people who want to get vaccinated without a recommendation (for travel purposes, for example) will have to pay for the vaccine that was previously provided for free.

In addition, the COVID-19 vaccination will be given without subsidiary liability protection by the federal government.

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

Fact #5 : Recommended Vaccination Remains Free + Protected

However, if a doctor recommends that you receive the COVID-19 vaccine because you are considered “high risk”, it will be provided free of charge, and covered by compulsory health insurance.

In addition, such recommended COVID-19 vaccination will continue to be covered by subsidiary liability protection by the federal government.

The federal government can only pay compensation for vaccination damages for vaccinations recommended or ordered by the authorities. However, the federal government will only pay compensation for damages that are not otherwise covered (subsidiary liability).

In other words, a person suffering damages is only entitled to compensation if the damage has not already been covered, for example, by the vaccine manufacturer (product liability), the person administering the vaccination (medical liability) or by social or private insurance.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccination Is Not Off-Label Use

The new changes in COVID-19 vaccine recommendation does not mean that COVID-19 vaccinations are now “off-label”, because they don’t change the authorisation of those recommended / approved vaccines:

Here are the latest approved COVID-19 vaccines in Switzerland (as of 9 April 2023):

Pfizer Comirnaty

Monovalent for 12 years and above : 5-year authorisation since 27 March 2023
Monovalent 5 to 11 years : 5-year authorisation since 27 March 2023
Bivalent for 18 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 10 October 2022

Moderna Spikevax

Monovalent for 18 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 12 January 2021
Monovalent for 12 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 9 August 2021
Monovalent booster dose : Temporary authorisation since 26 October 2021
Monovalent for 6-11 years : Temporary authorisation since 13 May 2022
First bivalent vaccine : Temporary authorisation since 29 August 2022
Second bivalent vaccine : Unlimited authorisation since 8 March 2023

Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine

Vaccine for 18 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 22 March 2021
Booster dose : Temporary authorisation since 27 December 2021

Nuvaxovid COVID-19 Vaccine

Vaccine for 18 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 12 April 2022
Vaccine for 12-18 years and booster dose : Temporary authorisation since 2 September 2022

Recommended : Was Pfizer CEO found guilty of vaccine misinformation?!

Fact #7 : There Is No Change In Doctor Liability

The new changes in COVID-19 vaccine recommendation do not mean that doctors “have to be liable for the vaccination“.

Based on the FOPH document (PDF download) on COVID-19 vaccination strategy (November 29, 2022), the doctor’s liability in vaccinating people against COVID-19 is no different from any other medical procedure or vaccination.

The liability of the doctor in a private practice or in a private hospital is assessed according to the Swiss Code of Obligations, in particular according to the regulations of the contract law (comparable requirements apply in a public hospital, but the liability is based on the cantonal state liability law).

The same rules regarding patient information apply to the Covid-19 vaccination as to all other vaccinations. Only if the duty of care has been violated and the other liability requirements are met (namely in the contractual relationship: breach of contract, adequate causal connection, fault and in the case of state liability: unlawfulness and adequate causal connection) can the vaccination center or the person vaccinating be held liable.

Ultimately, the cantonal authorities and courts have to decide whether and to what extent there could be a breach of the duty of care that could give rise to liability.

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!

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.

Truth : Al Roker Did Not Get His Blood Clots From Vaccine TTS!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Al Roker Was Admitted For DVT + Pulmonary Embolism

Al Roker was admitted to the hospital sometime in the middle of November 2022, with pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs) from a blood clot in his leg (deep vein thrombosis).

He announced this on Instagram on November 18, 2022:

So many of you have been thoughtfully asking where I’ve been. Last week I was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in my leg which sent some clots into my lungs. After some medical whack-a-mole, I am so fortunate to be getting terrific medical care and on the way to recovery. Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers and hope to see you soon. Have a great weekend, everyone.

Fact #2 : Al Roker Was Discharged On Thanksgiving Day

Al Roker was discharged from the hospital on Thanksgiving Day – Thursday, November 24, 2022.

So much to be #thankful for on the #thanksgiving day. Leaving the hospital and home for #thanksgivingdinner

Recommended : Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie : Cause of Death Not Vaccine!

Fact #3 : Al Roker Was Rushed Back To The Hospital A Day Later

Al Roker’s condition took a turn for the worse at home, and he was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance on Friday, November 25, 2022.

Fortunately, his condition improved once he got treated at the hospital:

His condition was worrying, but once back in the hospital he improved.

Today co-anchor Hoda Kotb confirmed that Al Roker was recovering at the hospital on Thursday, December 1, 2022.

We all wish that Al could have been with us, but due to some complications, he is back in the hospital and he’s in very good care. He’s resting, and his doctors are keeping a close eye on him.

Al and his family want everybody to know how grateful they are for all the love, the support, and the well-wishes. He gave us a big thumbs-up.

Fact #4 : Al Roker Received The Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine

Al Roker received the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on January 19, 2021 live on the Today show.

His second dose was about 21 days later, which means Al Roker was fully vaccinated by the middle of February 2021.

Fact #5 : Pfizer Vaccine Does Not Cause TTS

In January and February 2021, only two COVID-19 vaccines were available in the United States – both mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna.

In any case – both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines do not cause a rare side effect called Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), which is also know as Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT).

Only the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine (which was never approved in the United States), and the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine (which was only approved on February 27. 2021) can potentially cause the TTS / VITT side effect.

Because Al Roker received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, his blood clots could not be due to his vaccinations 21 months earlier.

Fact #6 : Vaccine TTS Is Different From DVT

Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia (TTS) is not only rare, it is very unique. People affected by TTS will develop blood clots in the large veins of the brain / abdomen / lungs, together with low platelet counts.

This unique and rare side effect is seen mostly in women younger than 50 years old, and is exceedingly rare in males older than 50 years old. Al Roker is 68 years old.

But the key thing to note is that Al Roker:

  • presented a large blood clot in his leg, and not in the large veins of the brain / abdomen / lungs,
  • did not have a low platelet count

Therefore, he most definitely does not suffer from TTS / VITT, even if he was vaccinated with the AZ or Janssen vaccines (he was not).

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Why Victoria Moody Did Not Die From Vaccine!

18 year-old Victoria Moody did NOT die from the COVID-19 vaccine, and here are the reasons why!

 

Claim : Victoria Moody Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Victoria Moody died at 18 years of age, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the high school cheerleader died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on her death:

HS student Victoria Moody dies from a blood clot. Why are so many young people dying suddenly? If all these sudden deaths are vaccine related then people need to be held accountable. Starting with biden. RIP 💔
#suddendeathsyndrome #vaccinedamage #arrestfauci #BidenCrimeFamily

Recommended : Robbie Coltrane : New Victim Of Vaccine Death Claim!

 

Truth : Victoria Moody Died During Surgery, Not Vaccine!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

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

Fact #1 : Victoria Moody Died During Surgery

Victoria Moody (born Victoria Leanne Moody on August 13, 2004) passed away on Sunday, October 23, 2022 – just two months after her 18th birthday.

On Sunday evening, she did not feel well, so her father, Brian Moody, took her to the hospital. There, she was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism – blood clot(s) in her lungs.

Her sister, Sierra Brooke McCarthy explained that “she apparently had a pulmonary embolism that was just too far advanced to stop it“.

She underwent surgery, but did not survive as her mother, Christy Leanne Ausbrooks, explained in a private Facebook post.

Victoria Moody went to be with the lord today my princess and I just wanted everyone to know that she had a blood clot in her lung and they were doing surgery and she just didn’t make it threw it was to late the blood clot traveled to her heart I just knew everything was going to be okay Victoria will be missed Big huge I love you so so much but I know you are with the lord now RIL And peace my princess

Her family buried Victoria Leanne Moody at the Christ Church cemetery in Alexander, Arkansas, on Friday, October 28, 2022.

So let me be clear – Victoria Moody did not die from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect of any kind. Her cause of death was most likely surgical complications following pulmonary embolism.

Fact #2 : Pulmonary Embolism Is A Common Cause Of Sudden Death

Pulmonary embolism is usually caused by blood clots that develop in the leg, a condition known as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), and travel through the right side of the heart and get lodged in the arteries of the lungs.

This blocks blood flow to parts of the lung – a life-threatening condition that causes many cases of sudden death every year.

According to the American Heart Association, pulmonary embolism was a factor in over 36,000 deaths in the United States in 2018 alone. In fact, pulmonary embolism is the third-leading cause of cardiovascular death!

On top of that, the rate of pulmonary embolism has been climbing by 2.1% per year since 2008, with young adults accounting for about 36% of all deaths, according to 2020 research by Dr. Karlyn Martin of the Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.

Fact #3 : Deep Vein Thrombosis Is Not VITT

Some anti-vaccination activists are trying to tie Victoria Moody’s deep vein thrombosis with vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT).

They are two completely different conditions, even though they both present with blood clots.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, although some cases have been reported with the Modern vaccine too.

Its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies, is different from deep vein thrombosis, where blood clots develop in the deep veins without low platelet counts.

A Nov. 2021 study of over 382,000 patients also showed that there is no increased risk of developing deep vein thrombosis after getting vaccinated with the Pfizer, Moderna or Janssen COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #4 : Victoria Moody’s PE + DVT Unlikely To Be Caused By Copper IUD

According to ZQ on Twitter, a fellow church member of the Moody family revealed that Victory Moody underwent surgery to remove a copper IUD (intrauterine device) that doctors thought was causing her to develop the blood clots.

It is not published. I know a church member of the family that served with me. According to him the surgery was to remove a cooper IUD they thought was the cause. That is how they discovered the dvt. But trolls on twitter ran with a false narrative because of their politics

While oddly specific, you don’t need to remove copper IUD surgically. Any healthcare professional can just pull on the IUD strings, and the device’s arms will fold up to let it slide out through the cervix.

Also, copper IUD is the recommended contraceptive for women with a history of of deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, or coronary events. That’s because it’s a non-hormonal form of contraceptive that does NOT increase the risk of developing blood clots.

Credit : Verywell

Fact #5 : Victoria Moody’s PE + DVT Could Be Caused By Birth Control

People are speculating that Victoria Moody may have had a birth control implant, or was on contraceptive pills.

If she had a birth control implant or was on contraceptive pills, she may be at higher risk of developing deep vein thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism.

Hormonal contraceptive implants like Nexplanon increase the risk of developing serious blood clots, which further increases in women who smoke. There is also an increased risk in women who undergo surgery, or have to be on bed rest.

Combination oral contraceptive pills, which contain both estrange and progestin, greatly increase the risk of getting blood clots.

However, I should point out that there is no evidence that Victoria Moody had a birth control implant, or was on oral contraceptive pills.

I should also point out that removing a birth control implant does not actually require “surgery”. It only needs a tiny nick in the skin after a local anaesthetic is applied, to remove the implant.

Fact #6 : Unknown If Victoria Moody Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Victoria Moody was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that she died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Read more : Kaden Clymer : 6-Foot Blood Clot NOT From Vaccine!

Fact #7 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Victoria Moody was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he definitely received her vaccine doses many months ago.

She cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #8 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #9 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…

Did Sukma Athlete Stephanie Sim Die From Vaccine Stroke?!

Did 19 year-old Sukma athlete Stephanie Sim die from a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Stephanie Sim Died From Stroke Caused By COVID-19 Vaccine!

People are starting to claim that 19 year-old Sukma athlete Stephanie Sim Shu Ming died from a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Many are also sharing her news in anti-vaccination groups and websites, as “another example” of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) from the vaccines.

BAAM 💥endnu en, må af ‘ukendte årsager’ og helt ‘pludseligt’ forlade os blot 19 år gammel 😌

BAAM 💥another one, must for ‘unknown reasons’ and completely ‘suddenly’ leave us just 19 years old 😌

The Sarawak shooting community is saddened by the loss of Sukma shooter Stephanie Sim Shu Ming who passed away on Tuesday evening. Stephanie, 19, suffered #SuddenAdultDeathSyndrome #SuddenDeath

Rip… sudden deaths among young people r becoming common since mid of last year

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) ? #Vaccines

No Evidence Stephanie Sim Died From Stroke Caused By COVID Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Stephanie Sim Died From A Stroke

19 year-old Stephanie Sim Shu Ming suffered a stroke on Thursday, June 16, 2022, and went into a coma.

She was hospitalised at the Sarawak General Hospital, where she passed away on Sunday, June 19, 2022. She was buried at the Nirvana Memorial Park in Bau on Friday, June 24, 2022.

Sarawak State Youth, Sports and Entrepreneurship Minister Abdul Karim Hamzah confirmed that Stephanie’s cause of death was a stroke.

Stephanie Sim did not die from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

Fact #2 : There Are Thousands Of SADS Deaths Every Year

To be clear, Stephanie Sim died from a stroke, not Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

But I would like to point out that SADS was first documented in 1977, and occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year.

In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

Fact #3 : Stephanie Was Healthy + Well Earlier

There is no evidence that Stephanie was suffering from any vaccine adverse effects like myocarditis or VITT.

There would have been very noticeable symptoms like breathing difficulties, chest pain, bleeding tendencies, etc. and she wouldn’t be able to train properly.

Yet she trained with the Sarawak Sukma shooting squad just days ago – on Saturday, June 11, 2022.

Read more : Did Hundreds Of Athletes Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects?!

Fact #4 : Her Vaccination Status Is Unknown

It is unknown if Stephanie Sim was vaccinated against COVID-19. She did not publicly mention her vaccination status, and neither did her family.

Despite the high adult vaccination rate of some 84%, COVID-19 vaccination is not mandatory in Malaysia. A significant number of people in Malaysia remain unvaccinated.

While it is very likely she was vaccinated, we simply do not know if she received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

If Stephanie Sim was vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her vaccine doses last year – at least half a year ago.

She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up sudden, unknown deaths to the vaccine, death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Infections Cause Myocarditis + Blood Clots Too!

What anti-vaccination activists won’t tell you is that COVID-19 infections also cause myocarditis and blood clots in the cerebral vein too.

They also won’t tell you that the risk of developing cerebral vein blood clots is 170X higher with a COVID-19 infection, than it is with the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Cerebral Vein
Thrombosis Risk
Per Million
People
Difference
Patient with COVID-19 207 +8,525%
AstraZeneca Vaccine 3.6 +50%
Normal Population 2.4 Baseline

They also won’t tell you that the risk of developing myocarditis is hundreds of times higher with a COVID-19 infection, than with three doses of any COVID-19 vaccine!

Myocarditis

3x AstraZeneca 2.1 +1.4x Baseline -0.2x
3x Sinovac 1.5 Baseline -0.3x -0.4x

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Did Italian Court Rule Vaccine Mandate As Unconstitutional?!

Did an Italian court rule that vaccine mandates are unconstitutional because fatal side effects are too risky?!

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

 

Claim : Italian Court Ruled Vaccine Mandate As Unconstitutional!

People are sharing articles from websites like News Punch, claiming that an Italian court just ruled vaccine mandates as unconstitutional, because their fatal side effects are too risky!

The article includes a transcript from a RAIR Foundation USA video. It is rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…

Italian Court Rules Vaccine Mandates Unconstitutional: ‘Fatal Side Effects Too Risky’

An Italian court has ruled that Italy’s mandatory Covid vaccination program is ‘unconstitutional’ due to the “serious or fatal adverse effects” posed by the experimental jabs.

Sicily’s Court of Administrative Justice stated that any death due to the jab is enough to render the mandate completely illegal in Italy.

 

Truth : Italian Court Did NOT Rule Vaccine Mandate As Unconstitutional!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS that anti-vaccination activists are concocting to mislead people about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Italy Only Has A Limited Vaccine Mandate

First, I need to point out that Italy only has a limited vaccine mandate.

Since 15 October 2021, it has been mandatory for workers in both private and public sectors, who are 50 years and older, to present a valid COVID pass.

This does not affect younger employees, and is not exactly a vaccine mandate, because the COVID pass only requires :

  • at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose, OR
  • proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken in the previous 48 hours, OR
  • proof of having recently recovered from COVID-19.

Technically, you can refuse to get the vaccine and receive the COVID pass, as long as you keep testing negative for COVID-19.

Read more : EU Digital COVID Certificate – A Comedy Of Errors!

Fact #2 : Italian Court Did Not Rule Vaccine Mandate Unconstitutional

If you translate the court judgement to English, you will quickly realise that the Italian court did not rule the vaccine mandate as unconstitutional.

In fact, the court document clearly states that the judge suspended the trial, and sent the documents to the Italian Constitutional Court for their decision instead.

Fact #3 : Italian Court Did Not Call Vaccine Side Effects Too Risky

The Italian court certainly did not claim that the “fatal side effects” of the vaccine are “too risky”.

In fact, the court document pointed out that “undoubtedly, most of the side effects, listed in the database, show modest and transient symptoms”.

Fact #4 : Court Photo Was From 2013

The picture that is often used to convey the “importance” of this court finding was misappropriate, and does not show the Administrative Justice Court for Sicily.

That is a local court for Sicily, which has a single judge. The presiding judge for this case was Maria Abbruzzese.

The photo was actually taken in Rome, on 1 August 2013, and shows Chief Justice Antonio Esposito of the Italian Supreme Court reading the verdict of the Mediaset trial involving former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

Fact #5 : Correlation Is Not Causation

I also have to point out that correlation does not imply causation. In other words, just because something after vaccination, it does not mean it was caused by the vaccine.

For example, if you get pregnant after getting the COVID-19 vaccine, does it mean that the vaccine made you pregnant? Of course, not.

There is also the fact that many events can result in the same “side effect”.

For example, the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are known to cause anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) in rare cases. However, anaphylactic reactions can also occur due to a peanut allergy or a bee sting.

That is why every reported case must be examined to determine if it is actually related to the vaccine.

Fact #6 : EudraVigilance Data Have Yet To Be Verified 

The EudraVigilance system is not an open system like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, which makes it less susceptible to abuse.

However, EudraVigilance data and reports cannot be considered “evidence” of side effects of any particular drug or vaccine, 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 the EMA to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

In fact, the EudraVigilance website specifically warns against using their data as “evidence” of a drug / vaccine’s side effects :

The information on this website relates to suspected side effects , i.e. medical events that have been observed following the use of a medicine, but which are not necessarily related to or caused by the medicine.

Information on suspected side effects should not be interpreted as meaning that the medicine or the active substance causes the observed effect or is unsafe to use. Only a detailed evaluation and scientific assessment of all available data allows for robust conclusions to be drawn on the benefits and risks of a medicine.

They even created a dedicated page on COVID-19 vaccines to warn against using their data to draw any conclusions about a vaccine’s side effects.

Fact #7 : Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

Irrespective of what’s argued in any court, the approved COVID-19 vaccines have all been proven safe and effective.

Not only did they undergo and passed very large clinical trials, almost 12 billion doses have been administered worldwide in the past 1.5 years.

Despite scaremongering by anti-vaccination activists, ongoing pharmacovigilance monitoring show that they are safe and effective for the vast majority of people who received them.

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Infections Are Far Riskier Than Vaccines

In addition to the aforementioned anaphylaxis risk, pharmacovigilance surveillance picked up rare severe side effects like VITT, myocarditis and pericarditis.

But what anti-vaccination activists don’t tell you is that COVID-19 infections cause similar side effects, but at much higher rates.

Take myocarditis for example. Anti-vaccination activists love to tell us how they put our children’s lives at risk. But they conveniently leave out the fact that your child is hundreds of times more likely to develop myocarditis from a COVID-19 infection than from three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine!

Alert : COVID-19 Vaccination Status Changes On 1 April 2022!

Please note that your COVID-19 vaccination status in Malaysia will change on 1 April 2022, depending on the vaccine and number of doses you received.

Take a look at the finalised schedule of COVID-19 vaccination status changes that will take effect very soon!

 

Vaccination Status Changes For Seniors, Sinovac + Sinopharm Recipients

On 24 February 2022, Malaysia Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced that these individuals will be required to get a booster dose by 31 March 2022.

  • 60 years and older who were fully-vaccinated with any COVID-19 vaccine
  • 18 years and older who were fully-vaccinated with the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine

That was extended on 24 March 2022, to include individuals 18 years and older who were fully vaccinated with the Sinopharm vaccine as well.

Starting 1 April 2022, individuals in all three groups who do not get their booster dose will lose their fully-vaccinated status.

To be clear – this is not a vaccine mandate. You are free to refuse the booster dose. However, your MySejahtera will show that you are not fully-vaccinated.

 

COVID-19 Vaccination Status Changes On 1 April 2022!

On 24 March 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health also announced changes to the COVID-19 vaccination status, adding a new Booster status.

From 1 April 2022 onwards, there will be four possible vaccination status in MySejahtera (from best to worst) :

  • Boosted
  • Fully Vaccinated
  • Partially Vaccinated
  • Unvaccinated

For your convenience, here is a table summarising the COVID-19 vaccination status changes that will kick in on 1 April 2022 :

COVID-19 Vaccine No. of Doses 18-59
Years Old
60 Years Old
& Above
Sinovac
Sinopharm

Why Denmark Is First EU Country To Lift All COVID-19 Laws!

Denmark is the first EU country to lift all COVID-19 restrictions, fully opening up despite a massive surge in cases.

Find out why they are able to do that… again.

 

Denmark Is First EU Country To Lift All COVID-19 Laws!

On Tuesday, 1 February 2022, Denmark became the first country in the European Union to lift all COVID-19 restrictions… again.

  • Wearing of face masks is no longer mandatory on public transport, shops and standing clients in restaurant indoor areas.
  • Face masks will only be recommended in hospitals, healthcare facilities, and nursing homes.
  • The COVID-19 digital pass is no longer required to enter nightclubs, cafes, party buses, and to be seated indoors in restaurants, unless required by individual event organisers.
  • There will no longer be limits on the number of people allowed in indoor gatherings.
  • Social distancing measures will no longer be required.

The Danish government no longer considers COVID-19 to be a “socially critical sickness“, even as the country experienced a massive surge in cases.

There is one notable exception though – unvaccinated travellers, or those who were not previously infected between 11 and 180 days ago, must undergo a COVID-19 test before being allowed to enter Denmark.

Why Denmark Is Able To Lift All COVID-19 Laws!

Some antivaxxers are already touting the move by Denmark as evidence that COVID-19 is not serious. After all, they will point out – Denmark currently has the second-highest infection rate in the world.

That’s an intentionally misleading, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Denmark Has Very High Vaccination Rates

Danish Health Minister Magnus Heunicke said that “widespread vaccination and boosters have helped the country open up again“, and it shows :

  • Over 81% of people 5 years and older have been fully-vaccinated.
  • Over 61% of people 12 years and older received their booster dose

Jens Lundgren, a professor of viral diseases at the Copenhagen University Hospital said, “We have been very successful in our national vaccine programme throughout 2021, a lot of people have received two vaccination shots, and a lot have received three doses as well, and many of those doses were provided in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Fact #2 : Denmark Has Very Low ICU + Death Rates

Thanks to the high levels of vaccinations, Denmark has experienced very low levels of ICU usage and mortality rates.

Even though they are experiencing a massive surge in new COVID-19 cases, the number of people in ICUs have fallen to only 32.

Even people dying today is far lower than the peak in December 2020, when Denmark experienced far fewer COVID-19 cases.

Danish Health Minister Magnus Heunicke said, “the number of hospitalizations and patients in intensive care is decreasing every day, thanks to vaccination“.

Søren Brostrøm, director-general of Denmark’s Health Authority concurred, “At the same time as infections are skyrocketing, patients admitted to intensive care actually going down. It’s around 30 people in ICU beds right now with a COVID-19 diagnosis, out of a population of 6 million.

Fact #3 : Denmark May Reimpose Restrictions

The Danish authorities held out the possibility that COVID-19 restrictions may return, as it is too early to know whether there will be a new variant that needs to be addressed.

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen told Danish radio, “I dare not say that it is a final goodbye to restrictions. We do not know what will happen in the fall, whether there will be a new variant.

Denmark had actually lifted all COVID-19 restrictions in September 2021, but reimposed them in the first of a third wave of infections.

So it will not be surprising if they do reimpose COVID-19 restrictions should a new virulent COVID-19 variant start spreading.

Fact #4 : Denmark May Introduce A Fourth Dose

Despite the elation over the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, the government has warned that Denmark could see a rise in infections in the coming weeks.

Health Minister Magnus Heunicke called on Danes to get tested regularly, so that the country could “react quickly if necessary”.

In addition to the reinstatement of COVID-19 restrictions, the Danish government may introduce a fourth vaccine dose.

I should also point out that Denmark almost exclusively uses mRNA vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. They stopped using AstraZeneca and J&J vaccines, citing the risk of rare blood clots.

We can all enjoy the same privilege as the Danes, by adopting the same common sense approach they have.

Help us reach the same goal, by vaccinating yourself and your family against COVID-19!

Did Malaysia Health Ministry Use Expired COVID-19 Vaccines?

Is the Malaysia Health Ministry giving us expired COVID-19 vaccines?

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

 

Claim : Malaysia Health Ministry Is Using Expired COVID-19 Vaccines!

This message is going viral on WhatsApp, claiming that the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) is using EXPIRED COVID-19 vaccines.

A million vaccine shots tossed in Indonesia on short expiry date

Our health ministry and Minister must explain why Indonesia is discarding expired vaccine shots while our Health minister is extending the expired period to six months.

It is known that once a vaccine or any medicine is expired it loses its efficacy and should not be given. But our DG and Health Minister on their own accord without any advice from from the vaccine maker decided to extend the expiry period and give it to our people.

Is Malaysian lives so cheap that expired vaccine can be given to our people without fear that it may have adverse effects on the people.?

 

Truth : Malaysia Is Not Using Expired COVID-19 Vaccines!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp about COVID-19 vaccines.

Malaysia is NOT using expired COVID-19 vaccines, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Most Expired Vaccines In Indonesia Had Short Shelf Life Left

It is true that more than a million COVID-19 vaccine doses were discarded in Indonesia after they expired. But that was because most of them were donated with just 1-3 months of shelf life left!

On 19 January 2022, Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin told the Indonesian Parliament that about 98% of the 1.1 million doses that were discarded were “donated just 1-3 months away from expiry“.

In other words, it was almost impossible for Indonesia to distribute and use those vaccines before they expired.

Hence, the Indonesian government will be “more selective and only accept doses expiring in three months or longer“.

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Vaccine Shelf Lives Were Too Short

When properly stored, vaccines can last a long time. Most vaccines actually have a shelf life of about three years.

However, vaccine manufacturers have been extraordinarily cautious when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines. Many COVID-19 vaccines ship with shelf lives of only 3 to 6 months!

The key takeaway point is that COVID-19 vaccine shelf lives are extraordinarily short. Many healthcare professionals would call them way too short.

Read more : Why Expiry Date On COVID-19 Vaccine Vial Is NOT Accurate!

Fact #3 : EUA / EUL Vaccines Do NOT Have Fixed Expiry Dates

The US FDA points out that vaccines authorised for emergency use (EUA / EUL) do NOT have fixed expiry dates.

Vaccines authorized for emergency use – as products that are not approved under a biologics license application and are still being studied under investigational new drug applications– do not have fixed expiry dates.

For those doses that are close to expiry, if they are being held under appropriate conditions for ensuring their integrity for use, they can potentially be quarantined to see if data on new stability studies warrant extension of the initial expiry date according to appropriate policies and procedures.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Shelf Life Extension Is Based On Stability Studies

Vaccine manufacturers can conduct stability studies, to prove that their COVID-19 vaccines remain stable and effective over time.

They can then apply to extend the shelf life of COVID-19 vaccines, which is subject to approval by drug regulatory agencies like the US FDA and the UK MHRA

The shelf life of COVID-19 vaccines will only be extended if stability tests prove that they maintain their potency.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Shelf Life Extension Requested By Manufacturers

The fake news claimed that the Malaysia Health Ministry extended vaccine shelf life on their own accord. That’s complete and utter nonsense.

The vaccine manufacturer must apply for a shelf life extension, and provide their stability study results to prove that their COVID-19 vaccine remain stable and potent beyond the requested shelf life extension.

Fact #6 : Many COVID-19 Vaccines Have Extended Shelf Lives

Many COVID-19 vaccines shipped with very short shelf lives, and have since had them extended, some multiple times.

  • Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY : Extended to 9 months since 22 August 2021
  • Moderna Spikevax : Extended  to 9 months since 23 December 2021
  • J&J Janssen : Extended to 4.5 months on 10 June 2021, and then 6 months on 28 July 2021
  • Sinovac : Extended to 12 months
  • SII Covishield : Extended to 9 months in March 2021
  • Bharat Covaxin : Extended to 12 months on 3 November 2021
  • Sputnik V : Extended to 6 months

Why COVID-19 Vaccine Shelf Life Keeps Getting Extended!

Did you know that COVID-19 vaccine shelf life can be extended beyond what’s printed on the vial, sometimes more than once?

Find out why they keep extending vaccine shelf life, and whether we should be worried about that!

 

COVID-19 Vaccine Shelf Life Is Way Too Short

Based on their experience developing past vaccines, manufacturers have a good idea of how long their vaccines will remain stable and retain their quality and efficacy.

When properly stored, vaccines can last a long time. Most vaccines actually have a shelf life of about three years.

However, vaccine manufacturers have been extraordinarily cautious when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines. Many COVID-19 vaccines ship with shelf lives of only 3 to 6 months!

The key takeaway point is that COVID-19 vaccine shelf lives are extraordinarily short. Many healthcare professionals would call them way too short.

 

COVID-19 Vaccine Shelf Life Extension Is Normal

The ultra-short shelf life for COVID-19 vaccines have led to criticism that such excessive caution is leading to wastage.

Even while there is a global shortage of vaccines, many doses had to be disposed when they “expired”, even though they are still safe and effective to use.

The WHO has been urging countries to hold onto those “expired doses” while manufacturers are assessing whether their shelf lives can be extended.

The US FDA also points out that vaccines authorised for emergency use do NOT have fixed expiry dates.

Once new stability studies prove that the vaccine remains stable and effective over time, the expiry date of those vaccines can and will be extended.

I should point out that these extended COVID-19 vaccine shelf lives are still very conservative. Perhaps overly conservative.

In fact, we should expect them to keep getting extended as further stability tests show that they do actually last very long.

 

Which COVID-19 Vaccine Has Extended Shelf Life?

You may be surprised to know this, but the shelf life of many COVID-19 vaccines have extended, sometimes more than once.

So do NOT be alarmed if you are given a dose from a vial with an “expired date“. It does NOT mean that you have been given a “bad vaccine”.

It just means that the vaccine has been proven to last much longer than originally expected.

Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY

The Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY vaccine originally had a 6 month shelf life. That was extended by 3 months, to 9 months on 22 August 2021.

On 16 December 2021, the US FDA also extended shelf life for the COMIRNATY vaccine that uses the Tris buffer to 9 months.

So all existing vaccine doses can be used for an additional 3 months beyond their printed expiry dates, as long as they are stored between -90ºC to -60ºC.

Moderna Spikevax

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine originally had a 7 month shelf life.

On 23 December 2021, both UK MHRA and Health Canada extended its shelf life by 2 months, to 9 months, as long as it is stored between -25ºC to -15ºC.

The US FDA also extended the shelf life of certain lots by 2 months, to 9 months, as long as they are stored between -50ºC to -15ºC.

J&J Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine

The Janssen COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson originally has a 3 month (90-day) shelf life.

The US FDA extended its shelf life to 4.5 months (135 days) on 10 June 2021, and then 6 months (180 days) on 28 July 2021.

All existing vaccine doses can now be used for an additional 1.5 to 3 months (45 to 60 days) beyond their printed expiry dates, as long as they are stored at 2-8ºC.

AstraZeneca Vaxzevria

In May 2021, Health Canada extended the shelf life of about 45,000 AstraZeneca doses by a month, following review of stability data.

It allowed the use of doses with an original expiry date of 31 May 2021, until 1 July 2021.

Otherwise, all AstraZeneca vaccine doses remain with their original shelf life of six months.

Sinovac CoronaVac

The CoronaVac inactivated virus vaccine from Sinovac originally had a 6-month shelf life, which was later extended to 12 months, when it was approved by the WHO.

However, Sinovac appears to give the CoronaVac different shelf lives depending on who’s purchasing their vaccine – 1 year in Malaysia, 2 years in Singapore, and 3 years in Indonesia and Thailand.

Sinopharm BIBP

The Sinopharm BIBP vaccine has a 24-month shelf life, as registered with the WHO. With such a long shelf life, there is no real need for an extension.

CanSino Convidecia

The CanSino Convidecia vaccine has a 24-month shelf life, and remains stable for 60 days at room temperature.

With such a long shelf life, there is no real need for an extension.

SII Covishield

Covishield is a rebranded AstraZeneca vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India, and has the same original 6 month shelf life.

In March 2021, the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) extended its shelf life by 3 additional months, to 9 months.

Bharat Covaxin

Covaxin originally had a shelf life of 6 months, but that was extended to 12 months by the Indian Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation on 3 November 2021.

All existing vaccine doses can now be used for an additional 6 months beyond their printed expiry dates, as long as they are stored at 2-8ºC.

Sputnik V

The Russian vaccine – Sputnik V originally had an incredibly short 2-month shelf life at -18ºC.

The Russian Healthcare Ministry then allowed it to be stored for 2 months at 2-8ºC, before later extending it to 6 months when stored at -18ºC to -22ºC.

Malaysia HALVES Booster Dose Interval To Just 3 Months!

Malaysia just HALVED the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose interval to 3 months!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Malaysia HALVES Booster Dose Interval To Just 3 Months!

The Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) just announced that the existing 6 month booster dose interval is now halved to just 3 months!

Here is a table I created to summarise what they just announced :

Primary Series
Vaccine
Recommended
Booster
Alternative
Booster
Timing After
Primary Series
Pfizer Pfizer Moderna After 3 months
AstraZeneca Pfizer AstraZeneca
Sinovac Pfizer AstraZeneca or
Sinovac
Sinopharm Pfizer AstraZeneca or
Sinopharm *
Moderna Moderna Pfizer
CanSino Pfizer CanSino *
Sputnik V Pfizer AstraZeneca
Janssen Pfizer AstraZeneca After 2 months

* Note : These booster doses are still pending NPRA approval, and are therefore, not available yet.

Read more : Sinovac Booster Dose : Can You Get It? Should You Take It?

 

Who Should Get Booster Dose In Malaysia?

The technical working group also evaluated the latest evidence, and introduced new recommendations for the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

These individuals are advised to receive a booster dose at least 3 months after their primary vaccination.

  • All senior citizens 60 years and above 
  • All adults 18 years and above who received all types of vaccines (Pfizer, AZ and CoronaVac), using the age de-escalation approach
    – 50 years old and above,
    – 40 years old and above, and
    – 18 years old and above
  • Individuals with co-morbidities
  • Residents and employees at long-term care facilities

 

Why Malaysia Reduced The Booster Dose Interval To 3 Months?

KKM made this decision based on the recent RECoVaM study, which showed the waning protection of COVID-19 vaccines, especially the Sinovac vaccine.

They were also concerned about the latest data on the Omicron variant, which showed greater transmissibility, higher viral binding affinity and higher antibody escape.

Evidence collected over the last 3 weeks showed that a booster dose can increase protection against the Omicron variant. And early research involving 21 million booster doses in the UK showed that they are safe.

In line with those results, regulatory bodies in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia as well as panels of health experts now recommend that the booster dose vaccination should be given as early as three (3) months after completing the primary vaccine.

Did FDA Accidentally Leak Vaccine Effects Before Approval?

Did the US FDA know about the many COVID-19 vaccine side effects MONTHS before they were approved?

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

 

Claim : FDA Leaked Vaccine Side Effects MONTHS Before Approval!

Antivaxxers are now promoting the claim that the US FDA knew about the many COVID-19 vaccine side effects, and accidentally leaked them during a seminar.

Take a look at this claim, that antivaxxers are now sharing on social media and WhatsApp :

The more you know, the less fear you have. This FDA seminar was done on October 22, 2020… 10 MONTHS AGO… Watch to the 2:33:40 mark.

It goes quick, but if you pause fast enough, you will see the slide of side effects from the vaccines they knew about 10 MONTHS AGO… Let that sink in.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XTiL9rUpkg

 

Truth : FDA Did Not Leak Vaccine Side Effects MONTHS Before Approval

The truth is this is more FAKE NEWS on the COVID-19 vaccines that antivaxxers have created, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Was A Public US FDA Meeting

The post claims that the slide was leaked in a US FDA seminar. That’s not true.

The truth is it was presented in a public meeting of the US FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee that ran for over 8 hours!

It is also publicly available for everyone to watch, which wouldn’t happen if they had something to hide.

Fact #2 : The List Was Shown TWICE

Steven Anderson, the US FDA Director for the Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, quickly skipped through this slide in his presentation, because it was presented earlier.

Tom has this list of possible adverse outcomes of interest. I won’t dwell on them, as he has them at the end of his presentation.

At 2:06:29 of the video, Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, MD, MPH, MBA, of the CDC COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force Vaccine Safety Team shared the same list.

Fact #3 : Those Were Possible Safety Outcomes Of Interest

Antivaxxers are claiming that the FDA knew about these adverse events / side effects of the COVID-19 vaccines.

The slide was actually a DRAFT working list of possible adverse event outcomes that the FDA was interested to monitor in the COVID-19 vaccines.

In Dr. Shimabukuro’s version above, it was clearly stated that it was a preliminary list of adverse events of special interest that the CDC would be monitoring.

This early list was created to help pick-up potential adverse events that may register in VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System).

Fact #4 : Those Were NOT Confirmed Adverse Events

The preceding slide actually explained how the FDA planned to monitor 10-20 safety outcomes of interests from the list above.

It confirmed, again, that the FDA had not decided on which safety outcomes were possible adverse events for the COVID-19 vaccines.

Steven Anderson again, stated in the same video :

We will be coordinating on which of these we might be using in our Rapid Cycle Analysis.

The FDA monitoring allowed the quick identifications of adverse events like Bell’s palsy (not in the list), anaphylaxis and myocarditis / pericarditis, were confirmed.

On the other hand, most of the other adverse events in the list above did not turn out to be associated with the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Adverse Events Have Been Publicly Reported

The US FDA has to be privy to the adverse events and side effects of COVID-19 vaccine submitted to them for approval, but that does not mean they are hiding them from us.

The adverse events and side effects of COVID-19 vaccines observed during the clinical trials have been publicly released in the VRBPAC documents, which you can download from the US FDA :

After these vaccines receive their EUA, their safety and efficacy are followed up for several more months before they receive their full FDA approval.

Now that you know the truth, please SHARE this fact check with your family and friends, so they won’t get fooled by this fake news.

Please protect yourself and your family – get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Sinopharm + Janssen Vaccines : A Quick Primer!

The Sinopharm COVILO vaccine, also known as BBIBP-CorV or just BIBP, that is very similar to the CoronaVac vaccine made by Sinovac.

Like CoronaVac, COVILO is an inactivated virus vaccine made from actual SARS-CoV-2 virus grown in Vero cells, and killed using β-propiolactone.

Once injected into the body, the antigens on the inactivated SARS-CoV-2 virus triggers the body’s immune system. It is a two-shot vaccine with an efficacy of :

  • 79% against symptomatic COVID-19.
  • 79% against hospitalisation with COVID-19

The Janssen vaccine from Johnson & Johnson is a viral-vector vaccine that uses the same Ad26 adenovirus as the Russian Sputnik V vaccine.

Once injected into the body, the Ad26 virus teaches some of our cells to manufacture the SARS-CoV-2 protein spikes to trigger the body’s immune system.

The Janssen vaccine is a single-shot vaccine with an efficacy of :

  • 52% to 74% against mild to moderate COVID-19.
  • 73% to 82% against severe to critical COVID-19
