Did Thailand Vow To Nullify Pfizer Vaccine Contracts?!

Did Thailand Vow To Nullify Pfizer Vaccine Contracts?!

Did Thailand vow to be the first country to declare the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine contracts “null and void”?!

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

 

Claim : Thailand Vow To Declare Pfizer Vaccine Contracts Null + Void!

A video of Professor Sucharit Bhakdi has gone viral on Twitter, claiming that Thailand is preparing to declare the Pfizer vaccine contracts null and void!

Top Thai authorities including advisors to the King have been in discussions with Prof. Sucharit Bhakdi and are prepared to see to it that the Pfizer contracts are declared null and void!!

No Evidence Thailand Vowed To Nullify Pfizer Vaccine Contracts!

There is really NO EVIDENCE that Thailand has vowed to be the first country in the world to declare the Pfizer vaccine contracts as null and void!

Fact #1 : The Video Was Edited To Remove Context

Like the second viral video, this video clip appears to be edited to remove some context. I confirmed that by watching and comparing the video clip to the full interview of Sucharit Bhakdi by Pascal Najadi.

It looks like the person who edited the video wanted to remove references to the fact that Bhakdi was talking to Thai activists and not Thai officials.

Here are my rough transcripts from the first video clip, with the removed parts highlighted in bold.

Let me tell you the wonderful thing that happened when we decided to go back to Thailand for a holiday, which was badly needed. This was the beginning of January this year. There are Thai activists in Thailand with whom we have been connected over the past year.

They said, if you come to Thailand… uh, I’m still a Thai by the way… I’m Thai-German… we will connect you with the authorities and advisors to the highest authorities in Thailand, and this is what happened.

So I have the opportunity, the first opportunity in three years, to talk to the top advisors of a government in any country.

And it was very, very impressive, because I laid out to them that this whole COVID-19 agenda is a fake, and why it is a fake, and I was able to lay out for them the proof that the COVID vaccinations were based on fraud.

The person who edited the video, also appears to be trying to scrub out the part where Bhakdi was referring to safety pharmacological studies in 2021 and 2022.

The EMA – European Medical Agencies – was asked again and again and again to reveal whether BioNTech Pfizer had ever performed any safety pharmacological study in 2021 and 2022, and the answer is available to us and to you.

The official answer submitted on the 18th of October of 2022. 18th of October, which we have at our disposal, the EMA declared officially that safety pharmacological studies were never performed. Never. And they were never deemed necessary. So now we have it.

It also appears that the first video was scrubbed to remove the part where Bhakdi stated that it was not the mRNA that was the problem, but the lipid packaging that protected it.

The person who edited the video also removed the part where Bhakdi said that the Thais were Googling information on the Pfizer-BioNTech contract. This would have alerted any viewer that Bhakdi was talking about Thai activists, and not Thai officials who would not need to Google such information.

[/su_note]

And when I told the Thais this, you know guys, they jumped up, they jumped up in the roof. And so they said Thailand is going to join Switzerland. Thailand is going to join Switzerland and show the world how to go, because the contract to buy millions of doses of that damn vaccine that is deadly, known to be deadly.

Not because of the mRNA, but just because of the lipids that are packaging the mRNA, that is enough to kill people. Not even the spike protein is necessary. You just have to take the packaging, and that it in itself is deadly. And that it in itself will cause anyone, will force anyone to say that nothing that is packaged in this deadly package can be safe. If the package itself is deadly, then you don’t have to ask what is in the package.

And then they said alright, and they were Googling and said, the contract was signed in Thailand with Pfizer-BioNTech and in this case, it was based on fraud because there were no safety studies and therefore, and it is now known that, this package is not safe. It is immaterial what is in in the package. It is not safe, because of the packaging.

And so they said to me – we will see to it that Thailand is the first country in the world that is going to declare this contract null, and nullify the contract. Which means that Pfizer BioNTech is going to have to pay back those billions to Thailand, with which Thailand will recompensate those peoples [sic] that have lost their existence.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Bhakdi Spoke To Thai Officials

As mentioned above, the viral video clip appears to have been edited to remove references to Thai activists, likely to convey the perception that Sucharit Bhakdi was speaking to Thai officials.

If you watch the full video or read the extended transcript above, Sucharit Bhakdi does not actually claim to have met any Thai official, never mind advisors to the royal family. He appears to have only met Thai activists who claimed that they can “connect” him with the authorities.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Thai Officials Plan To Nullify Pfizer Contracts

The full video, and the extended transcript above, shows that Sucharit Bhakdi appears to have spoken only with Thai activists, not Thai officials.

Therefore, there is no evidence Thailand is actually planning to nullify the Pfizer vaccine contracts. In fact, Bhakdi himself called for people to “start a movement” to “file a case against Pfizer-BioNTech“.

That would not be necessary if the Thai government is already planning to nullify the Pfizer vaccine contracts.

And if we are able in Thailand to start a movement to say, file a case against Pfizer-BioNTech that they pay for the damage they have done, let’s make it.

Fact #4 : Use Of Pfizer Vaccine Minimal In Thailand

It is odd that Sucharit Bhakdi is so focused on the Pfizer vaccine when the Moderna vaccine uses a similar mRNA and lipid nanoparticle delivery technology.

In any case, the use of Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines in Thailand is minimal. This is partly because the mainstay of the Thai COVID-19 vaccination programme was the AstraZeneca vaccine, that was eventually manufactured by Siam Bioscience (owned by King Vajiralongkorn himself).

But due to supply issues, Thailand imported and used large amounts of the Sinovac CoronaVac vaccine, and eventually the Sinopharm BIBP vaccine.

mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna only make up 5.7% of the COVID-19 vaccines delivered to the Thai government.

Vaccine Brand Doses Ordered Doses Delivered
Sinovac 31.1 million 26.52 million
AstraZeneca 61 million 25.5 million
Sinopharm 15 million 15 million
Pfizer 30 million 3.5 million
Moderna 13 million 560,200

Fact #5 : Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Was Evaluated In 2020

I should also touch on the claim that the safety of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was never tested.

Pfizer actually conducted their Phase 1/2 trial in 2020, testing the first participants on May 5, 2020, and posting the first date on August 20, 2020. That was followed up by the large Phase 3 trial, whose study was peer-reviewed and published in the New England Medical Journal in December 2020.

In other words, safety studies were carried out on the Pfizer vaccine in 2020, but not in 2021 or 2022 because it was the same vaccine.

It appears that the the first viral video was edited to removed the part about the EMA being asked whether Pfizer performed the safety tests in 2021 and 2022,  to convey the false perception that Pfizer never conducted safety tests at all.

The EMA – European Medical Agencies – was asked again and again and again to reveal whether BioNTech Pfizer had ever performed any safety pharmacological study in 2021 and 2022, and the answer is available to us and to you.

The official answer submitted on the 18th of October of 2022. 18th of October, which we have at our disposal, the EMA declared officially that safety pharmacological studies were never performed. Never. And they were never deemed necessary. So now we have it.

Jordon Trishton Walker on Directed Evolution : What are the Facts?

Jordon Trishton Walker has gone viral for claiming that Pfizer is thinking of mutating COVID-19 using Directed Evolution!

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

 

Jordon Trishton Walker : Pfizer is thinking of mutating COVID-19 using Directed Evolution!

Project Veritas recently released a “sting” video, in which they appeared to have entrapped Jordon Trishton Walker, who was identified as the Pfizer Director of Research and Development Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning.

In that viral video, Jordon (JTW) who was trying to impress his Tinder date – an undercover Project Veritas journalist (PV), claimed that Pfizer was thinking of mutating the COVID-19 virus using Directed Evolution.

When his Tinder date / undercover Project Veritas journalist suggested that it was Gain-of-Function, Jordon insisted that Directed Evolution was different from Gain-of-Function.

Here is a partial transcript from the video. For the full transcript, please see our earlier article.

PV : Pfizer ultimately is thinking about mutating COVID?

JTW : Well, that is not what we say to the public. No.
JTW : Don’t tell anyone this by the way, you have to promise you won’t tell anyone.
JTW : We’re exploring like – you know how the virus keeps mutating?
JTW : Well one of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it ourselves so we could- we could create preemptively develop new vaccines, right? So we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine, no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating fucking viruses.

PV : It [mutating COVID] sounds like Gain-of-Function to me.

JTW : I don’t know, it’s a little bit different. I think it’s different. It’s like, this, it’s definitely not Gain-of-Function.

PV : It sounds like it is, I mean, it’s okay.

JTW : No no no, but directed evolution is very different.
JTW : Well you’re not supposed to do Gain-of-Function research with the viruses.
JTW : They’d rather we not, but we do these selected structure mutations to try to see if we can make them more potent.

Jordon Trishton Walker on Directed Evolution : What are the Facts?

Anti-vaccination activists are excitedly sharing the Project Veritas video of Jordon Trishton Walker as evidence that Pfizer was caught mutating the COVID-19 virus to develop new vaccines.

But the truth is – if you actually go through the Project Veritas video, it was really a nothingburger on Pfizer, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Project Veritas Is Infamous For Misinformation

Project Veritas is infamous for posting misinformation, and heavily edited videos that either cast a misleading angle on a story, or push misinformation.

In 2020, Project Veritas claimed that US Representative Ilhan Omar was linked to a “cash for ballots voter fraud scheme”, which turned out to be baseless.

In February 2021, Project Veritas posted a video of Mark Zuckerberg allegedly warning Facebook staff about the risks of mRNA vaccines, even though Zuckerberg changed his opinions three months earlier after asking Dr. Anthony Fauci to clarify the issue in a November 2020 livestream.

In October 2021, Project Veritas released a video of Pfizer scientist Nick Karl saying that natural immunity is better than vaccination, when in fact Nicholas Karl is a biochemist who was not involved in the development or manufacture of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : His Job Does Not Involve Vaccine Development

While many people are obsessed in proving that Jordon Trishton Walker is really a Pfizer director of mRNA research, and not a consultant on loan / secondment from the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), it really does not matter.

Pfizer has a job position called Director, Research and Development and mRNA Scientific Strategy, which is close enough to the super-long title Jordon Trishton Walker is said to hold.

Ironically, that post is at the Pfizer Pearl River R&D facility near New York – the same place Nicholas Karl, the biochemist who got punked by Project Veritas in 2021 also worked at!

The job description, however, clearly shows that the director of R&D and mRNA Scientific Strategy is an office executive mainly dealing with business development.

Drive select projects within WRDM (Worldwide Research, Development and Medical) to deliver business critical insights to Pfizer leaders, such as the Executive Leadership Team, in partnership with internal and external stakeholders. These projects may include:

  • Leading select operational initiatives across Pfizer therapeutic areas, including delivering key aspects of the Corporate Strategic Plan and representing WRDM on corporate project teams.
  • Developing the strategic vision for mRNA technology at Pfizer and working cross-functionally with key stakeholders, such as Business Development, to enable decision-making on critical topics and ensure successful execution of the strategy. Identifying and prioritizing opportunities to deliver innovative medicines across Pfizer’s portfolio and advancing these priorities in collaboration with Pfizer’s Chief Scientific Officers and other WRDM leaders.
  • Maximizing the effectiveness of the President of WRDM on key internal and external deliverables.

Fact #3 : Jordon Walker Never Said Pfizer Was Mutating COVID-19 Virus

If you watch the Project Veritas video or read the transcript carefully, you will realise that Jordon Trishton Walker never said that Pfizer was mutating the COVID-19 virus. He only said that it was “a thought that came up” in one of the meetings.

… it was a thought that came up in a meeting and we were like, why do we not — it was like, we’re going to consider that with more discussions.

Fact #4 : Viruses Are Already Mutating Globally

It seems silly for Pfizer to intentionally infect monkeys to mutate the COVID-19 virus, to try and predict the next variant, when the virus is mutating rapidly globally – every infected person is literally a mutation factory!

Infecting monkeys also may not deliver the same variants as viruses that mutate in human beings, and may not serve as a good predictor of future variants.

Therefore, it would be much cheaper and certainly more accurate for Pfizer scientists to simply collect samples of new variants that are created every few months!

Fact #5 : Pfizer Modifying COVID-19 To Test PAXLOVID

Pfizer responded to the claims on January 27, 2023, stating that it has not conducted gain-of-function or directed evolution research when it came to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (marketed as COMIRNATY).

However, Pfizer stated that it does modify the COVID-19 virus to produce the spike protein of the new variants identified by health authorities, to test whether its vaccine would continue to work against the new variants.

If any gain-of-function or directed evolution work was being done on the COVID-19 virus, Pfizer was only doing it to test if the virus can evade nirmatrelvir – the patented half of the PAXLOVID oral medication it developed.

Read more : Pfizer denies Gain of Function, Directed Evolution claims!

Fact #6 : Directed Evolution Cannot Predict Dominant Mutation

Directed evolution is a form of protein engineering that uses mutagenesis and the natural selection process to create proteins with desired characteristics.

While the mutagenesis process it uses can create many variants, directed evolution cannot predict which variants will end up becoming dominant.

That’s why it’s called directed evolution – the scientists direct the evolution of a gene to produce proteins they want, not predict what proteins will become “dominant”.

Jordon himself pointed out to the Project Veritas journalist that even if Pfizer tries mutating the virus, it may not predict future variants.

JTW : Yeah, if it works.

PV : What do you mean if it works?

JTW : Because some of the times there are mutations that pop up that we are not prepared for like the delta and omicron and things like that, so…

Fact #6 : mRNA Technology Allows For Quick Vaccine Development

In any case, it doesn’t make much sense for Pfizer to try and “predict” the next variant, because the mRNA technology allows for very quick vaccine development.

Moderna, for example, took only TWO DAYS to design its mRNA vaccine after Chinese scientists released the SARS-CoV-2 virus genome, and only 26 days to create its first batch of vaccines.

In other words – Pfizer, or rather BioNTech scientists, only need the genomic data of the latest variant to create a new vaccine. There is no real need to predict the next variant, because developing a new vaccine with mRNA technology is so quick!

Why mRNA vaccines take so long to get to market has more to do with testing and red tape, than actually creating them!

Did Ben Idir Mehenni Die Suddenly From Vaccine?!

Did Algerian footballer Ben Idir Mehenni die suddenly on the field from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

Claim : Algerian Footballer Ben Idir Mehenni Died From Vaccine!

People have been sharing a video clip of people congregating on a football field, claiming that Algerian footballer Ben Idir Mehenni just died suddenly on the field from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Died Suddenly : BREAKING IN ALGERIA: Another Athlete has dropped dead.

A Footballer named Ben Idir Mehenni #diedsuddenly of a heart attack on the field.

The player complained of feeling unwell a few minutes before the end of the match, minutes later collapsing to his death. 💉

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

 

No Evidence Algerian Footballer Ben Idir Mehenni Died From Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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 : Ben Dir Mehenni Suddenly Collapsed + Died

On Tuesday, 24 January 2023, Union sportive de Oued Amizour (Sports Union of Oued Amizour) played against M.C. Rouiba in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) at the Stade de Reghaia (Reghaia Stadium).

A few minutes before the game ended, Ben Idir Mehenni who played for Oued Amizour collapsed on the field, and was rushed to the Reghaia hospital. Unfortunately, he could not be saved, and passed away.

Ben Idir Mehenni’s death was first announced by the Béjaia Radio, and confirmed by the Fédération Algérienne de Football in a Facebook post on Wednesday, 25 January 2023.

Le joueur a été victime d’un malaise quelques minutes à la fin de la rencontre et a été évacué en urgence à l’hôpital de Reghaia où il avait rendu l’âme quelques minutes après.

The player fell ill a few minutes after the match and was rushed to Reghaia hospital where he passed away a few minutes later.

Fact #2 : Ben Idir Mehenni’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

While many people claimed that Ben Idir Mehenni died from a heart attack, there has been no official source for that claim.

Neither Béjaia Radio nor the Fédération Algérienne de Football said that Ben Idir Mehenni died from a heart attack.

While Ben Idir Mehenni may well indeed have died from a heart attack, he could also have died from a sudden cardiac arrest – another condition which commonly causes athletes to suddenly collapse and die.

In any case, until and unless there is official word from the hospital on his cause of death, or an autopsy report, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that Ben Idir Mehenni died from heart attack, the vaccine, or some other cause.

Fact #3 : Ben Idir Mehenni Was Likely Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is unknown if Ben Idir Mehenni was ever vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

It is actually pretty likely that Ben Idir Mehenni was not vaccinated, as Algeria has a very low COVID-19 vaccination rate. Less than 15% of its population is fully-vaccinated, and less than 18% ever receive a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Unless he had earlier travelled overseas to play football, it is more than likely that Ben Idir Mehenni was never vaccinated against COVID-19.

Recommended : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Fact #4 : No mRNA Vaccine Approved For Use In Algeria

While many people blame his death on mRNA vaccines, specifically the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, no mRNA vaccine has ever been approved for use in Algeria!

Only four COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for use in Algeria so far:

  • Oxford-AstraZeneca Vaxzevria : viral vector vaccine
  • Sinovac CoronaVac : inactivated virus vaccine
  • Sinopharm Covilo : inactivated virus vaccine
  • Gamaleya Sputnik V : viral vector vaccine

As you can see – it is really not possible for anyone in Algeria to die from an mRNA vaccine, because no mRNA vaccine is available in Algeria!

Fact #5 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By 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. Here is the latest dozen cases I fact checked recently.

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

Did Project Veritas Show Pfizer Mutating COVID-19?!

Did a viral Project Veritas video show that Pfizer is mutating the COVID-19 virus to create new vaccines through Directed Evolution?!

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

 

Project Veritas : Pfizer Mutating COVID-19 Virus For New Vaccines!

Project Veritas released another “sting” video involving Jordon Trishton Walker, who was identified as the Pfizer Director of Research and Development Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning.

In that viral video, short clips were edited to show Jordon (JTW) telling a Project Veritas journalist (PV) that Pfizer is mutating the COVID-19 virus to try and preemptively develop new vaccines.

Here is a transcript from the video, but it is very long as Project Veritas appeared to have been edited to repeat parts of the video. So please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts.

PV : Pfizer ultimately is thinking about mutating COVID?

JTW : Well, that is not what we say to the public. No.
JTW : Don’t tell anyone this by the way, you have to promise you won’t tell anyone.
JTW : We’re exploring like – you know how the virus keeps mutating?

If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine, no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating fucking viruses.
JTW : You have to be like very controlled to make sure that this virus that you mutate doesn’t create something like, you know, goes everywhere.
JTW : Which, I suspect is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. Like, it makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere.

Project Veritas Did Not Show Pfizer Mutating COVID-19 Virus!

Anti-vaccination activists are excitedly sharing the Project Veritas video as evidence that Pfizer was caught mutating the COVID-19 virus to develop new vaccines.

But the truth is – if you actually go through the Project Veritas video, it was really a nothingburger on Pfizer, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #2 : Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Created By BioNTech

What many people often forget is that the COMIRNATY mRNA vaccine was not created by Pfizer, but a German company called BioNTech, helmed by Uğur Şahin and Özlem Türeci – Germans of Turkish descent.

Pfizer is primarily the US manufacturing and testing partner for the BioNTech BNT162b2 vaccine, while in China, that would be Fosun Pharma.

Why this is important is because the bulk of the mRNA vaccine research work is done by BioNTech, not Pfizer or Fosun Pharma.

So it is unlikely that Jordon Trishton Walker would actually be involved in the development of any mRNA vaccine, even if he is the Pfizer Director of Research and Development Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning.

Did Zuckerberg Warn FB Staff Not To Get Vaccine?!

Did Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg warn Facebook staff not to get the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Mark Zuckerberg Warned FB Staff Not To Get Vaccine!

A viral video clip of Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has gone viral, together with claims that he was warning Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine!

Steve Kirsch : LEAKED VIDEO: Facebook’s Zuckerberg Warned His Staff NOT To Get the Vaccine. But censors the info YOU see. You are the Guinea pigs.

Johnny Midnight : Zuckerberg warned his staff not to get the Vaccine 💉!

James Cintolo, RN FN CPT : 🚨BREAKING — Leaked Video Of Mark Zuckerberg Warning His Staff Not To Take A COVID Vaccine

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

 

Truth : Zuckerberg Did Not Warn FB Staff Not To Get COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

Fact #1 : The Viral Video Is Genuine

First, let me confirm that the video is genuine, and is not a deepfake production. As fake as it appear, that was really Mark Zuckerberg speaking in that video.

However, you will note that Zuckerberg did not actually tell or warn Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : The Viral Video Is More Than 2.5 Years Old

One version of the viral video was edited to state that it happen in August 2021, to give the impression that Mark Zuckerberg was advising Facebook staff against getting vaccinated.

The viral video clip is not new, as people are claiming on social media. It is actually a short segment of a virtual Q&A meeting for Facebook staff that was streamed live on July 16, 2020.

The video was only publicly revealed on February 17, 2021, when Project Veritas got a copy of the livestream, and leaked a very short segment of the entire video.

In other words – the video clip is old – it was recorded more than 30 months ago, and leaked more than 23 months ago.

Fact #3 : The Viral Video Was Edited Even More

Subsequently, the video was further edited again to cut out the parts in bold, to get the condensed 24-second video clip that just went viral on 21 January 2023.

I do just want to make sure that I share some caution on this because we just don’t know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people’s DNA and RNA to directly code in a person’s DNA and RNA.

Basically the ability to produce those antibodies and whether that causes other mutations or other risks downstream. So there’s work on both paths of vaccine development.

You will note that Zuckerberg misstated how mRNA vaccines work, and pointed out that there is work bering done on other types of COVID-19 vaccines.

Read more : Pfizer + Moderna mRNA Vaccines : How Do They Work?

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Still In Development Then

It is impossible for Mark Zuckerberg to ask or warn Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine, because when he made those comments, COVID-19 vaccines were still being developed.

Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone later clarified that the July 2020 discussion occurred shortly after Moderna released its initial-stage trial results for its mRNA-1273 COVID-19 vaccine candidate, which used the new, state-of-the-art messenger RNA technology.

There was very little public knowledge about mRNA technology at that time, so it is not surprising to see Mark Zuckerberg wonder about the risks of any new technology, like everyone else.

I should point out that, at that time, Moderna had not started its Phase 3 trial, which would eventually prove that the mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate would offer robust protection against hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

After that successful Phase 3 trial, the mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate received an Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) on December 18, 2020 as the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. That was followed up with a full FDA approval on January 31, 2022, and it was henceforth marketed as Spikevax.

Fact #5 : mRNA Does Not Enter Cell Nucleus

mRNA vaccines do not enter the cell nucleus, and therefore, will not affect or interfere with the person’s DNA.

That is not my opinion, but is the official statement by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the matter.

To enter the nucleus, the mRNA vaccine would need an enzyme called integrase (which the real SARS-CoV-2 virus produces). Without this integrase enzyme, the mRNA cannot physically enter the cell nucleus and therefore, cannot change or integrate with our DNA.

Some anti-vaccination activists are referring to a Feb 2022 study by Alden et. al as “evidence”, but the truth is – the study does not show that the Pfizer vaccine (which is not the Moderna vaccine) combined with DNA in liver cells.

Read more : Did Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Combine With DNA In Liver Cells?!

Fact #6 : Zuckerberg Clarified The Matter With Dr. Fauci

Mark Zuckerberg actually brought up the topic in a November 30, 2020 livestream with Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Zuckerberg : Just to clear up one point, my understanding is that these vaccines do not modify your DNA or RNA. So that’s just an important point to clarify, if I’m getting anything wrong here, of course correct me.

Dr. Fauci : No, first of all, DNA is inherent in your own nuclear cell. Sticking in anything foreign will ultimately get cleared.

Zuckerberg : I’m glad we can clear that up.

In other words, before Project Veritas even leaked the video, Mark Zuckerberg had already clarified with Dr. Anthony Fauci that mRNA vaccines cannot modify our DNA.

Fact #7 : Facebook Banned Claims mRNA Vaccines Alter DNA In 2021

We know that Mark Zuckerberg was convinced about the safety of the mRNA vaccines, and that they do not alter or change our DNA, because he banned any claim that the mRNA vaccines can change DNA on Facebook.

On February 8, 2021, Facebook updated its COVID-19 and vaccine policies to “protect people from harmful content and new types of abuse related to COVID-19 and vaccines“.

Facebook also said that it would remove posts that included “claims that the COVID-19 vaccine changes people’s DNA“.

Why Pfizer CEO Ignored Questions On Transmission!

A video of Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla ignoring questions on COVID-19 vaccines preventing transmission has gone viral.

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

 

Viral Video : Pfizer CEO Ignores Questions On Transmission!

A video of Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla ignoring questions on COVID-19 vaccines preventing transmission has gone viral.

Here is a rough transcript of what was said. It’s really long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts.

Ezra Levant : Mr. Bourla, can I ask you – when did you know the vaccines did not stop transmission? How long did you know that before saying it publicly?

Albert Bourla : Thank you very much.

Ezra Levant : To that question, I mean, we now know that the vaccines didn’t stop transmission, but why did you keep it secret?

Ezra Levant : You said it was 100% effective, then 90%, then 80%, then 70%, but we now know that the vaccines do not stop transmission. Why do you keep that secret?

Albert Bourla : Have a nice day.

Why Pfizer CEO Ignored Questions On Transmission!

This is yet another example of ANTI-VACCINE PROPAGANDA created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the facts you need to know.

Fact #1 : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Never Meant To Stop Transmission

The COVID-19 vaccines, whether from Pfizer or any other pharmaceutical company, were designed to prevent hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

Prevention of transmission would have been a nice bonus, but it was never the primary goal of any COVID-19 vaccine. And how do we know that?

Simple – there were only three endpoints in the Phase 3 trials of COVID-19 vaccines:

  • protection against symptomatic infection
  • protection against severe disease
  • protection against death

All vaccines – whether Pfizer or otherwise – were never designed or required to prevent transmission of COVID-19.

That was precisely what all COVID-19 vaccines aimed for, and that was what all Phase 3 trial results show. Here is a table I created from the initial Phase 3 trials of the major vaccines in March 2021:

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

Fact #2 : Pfizer CEO Did Not Claim COVID-19 Vaccine Prevent Transmission

On April 1, 2021, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla posted about a small South African trial in which 800 people vaccinated with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine did not get infected.

Although he could have been much clearer, he did not say that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine prevents transmission. He later clarified that it only shows that the vaccine produced a “robust neutralising antibody response” to a specific variant.

800 participants enrolled in South Africa with 0 cases of #COVID19 observed in the vaccinated group. Of the cases observed the majority were confirmed to be of the B.1.351 lineage, the prevalent strain in South Africa.

These data support previous results from immunogenicity studies demonstrating a robust neutralizing antibody response to the B.1.351 variant.

Recommended : Does Pfizer CEO aim to cut world population by 50%?

Fact #3 : It Is Quite Impossible To Prevent Transmission Of COVID-19

Anti-vaccination activists are harping on the prevention of transmission, because it’s a red herring – they know that it is quite impossible to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is primarily a respiratory virus that spreads by droplets and aerosols, but it is highly contagious, and can infect people through their eyes and mouths, and even through fomites (contaminated surfaces) – albeit, this is relatively rare.

The point is – vaccines are not force fields that repel the SARS-CoV-2 virus. They are basically training camps that teach our own immune system how to identify the virus, so they can make their own antibodies against it.

Even in a fully-vaccinated person, the antibodies only work after the virus enters the bloodstream. The antibodies cannot block or repel the virus, which is why the vaccine trials looked at preventing “symptomatic infections” and not preventing “infections”.

Similarly, the immune systems of vaccinated people are capable of preventing the virus from causing serious harm, but they can only partially block transmission by preventing the virus from replicating as much as it would normally be capable of.

The immune systems of vaccinated people, unfortunately, cannot do anything about virus particles that get inhaled into the lungs and then exhaled into the environment in respiratory droplets and aerosols.

I should point out that “natural immunity” from a prior COVID-19 infection cannot block or prevent transmission of COVID-19 either. So why should anyone insist that vaccines, whether Pfizer or otherwise, must prevent transmission of COVID-19?

Recommended : Why COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy Does NOT Matter!

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Effective

Regardless of what the two men who questioned Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla may claim, the truth is – COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be effective in preventing severe disease and death from COVID-19 infections.

That is how most of the world was able to reopen without COVID-infected patients swamping hospitals and ICUs, as we saw throughout 2020 and early 2021.

Yes, fully-vaccinated people are still getting infected by COVID-19, but they no longer need to be hospitalised, and most of them no longer die from a COVID-19 infection.

Again, COVID-19 vaccines were designed to prevent severe illness and death, not transmission or infection. They have done an excellent job in those aspects.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy Changes Against Variants

Like the influenza virus, the SARS-CoV-2 virus mutates rapidly – every infected person is literally a virus factory that is capable of producing new variants.

New virus variants may differ enough that the antibodies created by our own immune system may not attach to them properly.

This “immune escape” problem exists for people who obtained “natural immunity” through a COVID-19 infection, as much as those who are fully-vaccinated.

Each new variant is like an army that has learned to adapt to the battlefield, which is why the vaccines’ efficacy appear to “drop” with each variant.

It does not mean the vaccines do not work as advertised. Those vaccines still maintain the same efficacy against the ancestral COVID-19 virus that they were all tested against. It’s just that the antibodies they trigger may be less capable of attaching properly to the newer variants.

Recommended : Was Pfizer CEO Arrested For Fraud In #PfizerGate?

Fact #6 : Protection From Natural Immunity Is Reduced Against Variants Too

Antibodies created by our immune system from a prior COVID-19 infection – the “natural immunity” promoted by anti-vaccination activists, are also less effective against new variants.

That’s why people with natural immunity can and still do get infected again and again with new variants of COVID-19.

That is why it is important to develop new versions of the vaccines to deal with new COVID-19 variants that develop over time.

Sure, you can improve your immunity by repeatedly getting infected by new variants of COVID-19, but why not give your immune system a head start by getting the improved bivalent vaccines that are designed to better handle the Omicron variants?

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

‼️BREAKING‼️

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

SCARY

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

They’re covering themselves BUT you’ve been WARNED

 

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

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

Fact #1 : CDC + FDA Notification Is Available Online

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Safety Signals Are Not Evidence Of Causation

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

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

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

Fact #4 : Elderly Population At Higher Risk Of Stroke

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

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

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

High Risk

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

Moderate Risk

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

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

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

Fact #5 : CDC Still Recommends Getting Bivalent Vaccines

The CDC issued that notification as a matter of transparency, and not because there was a genuine reason for concern.

If the CDC and FDA had any reason to believe that the Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine can cause stroke in senior citizens who receive it, they would have at least amended their vaccine recommendations.

Yet, the CDC continues to recommend that people who are eligible to receive the updated bivalent COVID-19 vaccine should continue to get them.

The CDC also stressed that multiple studies have shown that “staying up-to-date with vaccines is the most effective tool we have for reducing death, hospitalisation, and severe disease from COVID-19“.

Lil Keed : Cause of Death Revealed, Not From Vaccine!

An autopsy was conducted on Lil Keed, and it confirmed that he did not die from liver failure caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

Updated @ 2023-01-05 : Added Lil Keed’s cause of death and final autopsy + coroner’s report.
Updated @ 2022-06-13 : Added LA County medical examiner’s comments.
Updated @ 2022-05-15 : Added Lil Gotit’s description of Lil Keed’s last moments.

Originally posted @ 2022-05-14

 

Claim : Lil Keed Died From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine!

Within hours of the news breaking that Atlanta rapper Lil Keed died, Jason Pires from Vancouver Times posted a story that claims he died from the Pfizer vaccine!

Rapper Lil Keed died from liver failure after taking the experimental Covid-19 vaccine, according to the doctors that treated him. Lil Keed originally objected to the vaccine, but his brother put pressure on him, and he accepted.

The rapper, from Atlanta, whose real name is Raqhid Render, had worked with numerous high profile artists over the years. Lil Keed was only 24 when he passed away.

His brother, Lil Gotit, confirmed the story with reporters at the Vancouver Times. His family plans on filing a lawsuit against Pfizer for wrongful death.

 

Truth : Lil Keed Did Not Die From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times appears to be a copy of the infamous Conservative Beaver – a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”. This time, they didn’t even bother to park it under their “Satire” section.

They revealed their true nature in their About Us section, hidden at the very bottom of the page, after a long list of comments.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

We are not affiliated with the mainstream media (CBC, CTV etc.) in any way, and any similarities between our content and the work of the MSM is purely coincidental.

Earlier, they created and propagated the fake story that Gilbert Gottfried’s wife said that he was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine.

They also created the fake story that Pfizer Vice President Rady Johnson was arrested and charged with multiple counts of vaccine fraud!

Read more : Was Pfizer VP Rady Johnson Arrested For Vaccine Fraud?!

Fact #2 : Lil Keed’s Cause Of Death Was Eosinophilia

Lil Keed (born Raqhid Jevon Render on March 16, 1998) died on May 13, 2022, hours after going to the Burbank Hospital with complains of stomach and back pain at around 7:30 PM.

Vancouver Times claimed that Lil Keed died from liver failure after taking the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. That has been definitely proven wrong when the Los Angeles County Medical-Examiner examined Lil Deed and released his autopsy report seven months later.

In their autopsy report, Lil Reed was determined to have died from natural causes, with the official cause of death listed as Sequelae of Eosinophilia (too many eosinophils – a type of white blood cell), with an unestablished aetiology (cause).

Severe eosinophilia is dangerous as the eosinophils can form aggregates that block blood vessels, causing stroke and respiratory failure if they block blood supply to the brain or lungs.

Eosinophilia can develop in people for no known reason – a condition known as idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome. And no – COVID-19 vaccines do not cause eosinophilia.

The coroner’s report noted that Lil Keed “had been sick in bed for 4 days with complaints of stomach and back pains” and that “his brother noted that [his] eyes were jaundiced and drove him to the hospital in a private vehicle“.

According to the coroner’s report, Lil Keed was hospitalised earlier in Georgia with stomach pain too, but “left against medical advice and did not seek follow-up care“.

Fact #3 : His Family Did Not Mention Vaccine Or Pfizer

Lil Keed’s younger brother and girlfriend were the only members of his family to speak about his death (so far).

Neither mentioned that his death was related to the COVID-19 vaccine, or that they plan on filing any lawsuit against Pfizer.

His younger brother, rapper Lil Gotit (real name Semaja Render) was the first to officially announce his death on Instagram :

Can’t believe I seened u die today bro I did all my cries I know what u want me to do and that’s go hard for Mama Daddy Our Brothers Naychur and Whiteboy #ImaHoldthisShitDown

Lil Gotit mentioned twice that he saw his brother die, but did not mention how he died. In his follow-up video (posted on Instagram by @theneighborhoodtalk), Lil Gotit said :

I watched my brother die… We rushed to the hospital, I looked in the man’s eyes like, ‘Damn, my brother gone. I told him I love him.”

Shit… It’s all like that now. Man, my brother with me, man, I’m good!

I took him to the hospital, n***a, I did it. You wouldn’t believe that my brother right now, he in the sky.

Quana Bandz, Lil Keed’s girlfriend and the mother of their 3-year old daughter, Naychur, also posted about his death on Instagram :

I love you sooooo much baby 🥺 what I’m post to do with out you😤I can’t breathe right sleep right nothing I don’t even wanna talk to nobody Keed I can’t take this why you leave US bru. What am I supposed to tell Naychur? What am I gone tell our new baby ? Keed I just told you the other day if you left me with these two kids I was gone loose my mind 🥺 my Mind is lost baby. You told me everything I’m sooooo sorry I didn’t fly to LA I know I could’ve saved you baby

Her post goes on for much longer, but not once did she ever mention that his death was related to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #4 : Lil Keen’s Vaccination Status Is Unknown

Lil Keed has never mentioned anything about the COVID-19 vaccine, or his vaccination status.

The claim that he objected to the vaccine is unsubstantiated, and was most likely created by Vancouver Times.

So is the claim that his brother – Lil Gotit – pressured him to get the vaccine. There is simply no evidence Lil Gotit forced his brother to get vaccinated.

Fact #5 : Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Is Not Experimental

The COVID-19 vaccines are only experimental whilst they are under development, or undergoing clinical trials.

They are no longer experimental once they successfully clear their clinical trials, and receive either an emergency use authorisation or full approval from a health authority like the US FDA or EMA.

The Pfizer vaccine received its full FDA approval on 23 August 2021, so this claim is completely bogus.

You should also know that no experimental vaccine can ever be administered to the public.

Everything that Vancouver Times posts should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Malaysia COVID-19 Booster Dose Policy : 4 Jan 2023!

The Malaysia Ministry of Health just updated its COVID-19 booster dose policy, and will now offer walk-in booster dose at all KKM hospitals and clinics!

 

Malaysia COVID-19 Booster Dose Policy : 4 Jan 2023!

On 31 December 2022, KKM updated its first and second booster dose policy, in light of new Omicron subvariants, and a potential wave of infections by travellers from China.

First Booster Dose

Adolescents who are 12 to 17 years old can get their first booster dose as early as six months after finishing their primary series COVID-19 vaccinations.

Adults who are 18 years and older can get theirs earlier – as early as three months after finishing their primary series COVID-19 vaccinations.

Criteria Interval
18 Years or older At least 3 months after
finishing primary series
12-17 Years Old At least 6 months after
finishing primary series

Second Booster Dose

Adults who are 18 years and older, but do not have any health problems, can now receive their second booster dose, as early as six months after receiving their first booster dose.

Adults with co-morbidities, senior citizens, residents of long-term care facilities, as well as frontline health care workers and pregnant or nursing mothers can receive theirs earlier – as early as four months after receiving their first booster dose.

Criteria Interval
18 Years or older
with high-risk health problems

Should You Get Them?

It is recommended that you get these booster doses to better protect against more contagious COVID-19 variants like the many Omicron variants.

The primary series of COVID-19 vaccines continues to protect you against hospitalisation and death. However, the Omicron variants are particularly evasive, and will cause more breakthrough infections.

While most of these breakthrough infections will be mild or moderate, it puts vulnerable people – the elderly and people with co-morbidities – at risk. That’s why they are being given the booster shot first, over everyone else.

In addition, antibody protection from COVID-19 vaccines has been shown to wane over 2-6 months, so booster doses are necessary to restore optimal protection.

Think of booster doses as extra training camps for your immune system (army). Sure, it already learned how to fight off the SARS-CoV-2 virus after going through boot camp (primary series vaccines), but it is always a good idea to give your “army” more training!

Malaysia COVID-19 Booster Dose Available By Walk-In

From 9 January 2023 onwards, the Malaysia Ministry of Health will offer vulnerable groups the option to physically walk-in and receive their booster doses at all KKM hospitals and clinics nationwide.

These individuals will not need to arrange for an appointment to get their COVID-19 booster doses.

Criteria

  1. Individuals with an existing co-morbidity, including chronic diseases (e.g. diabetes, heart disease, etc.)
  2. Senior citizens, who are 60 years or older
  3. Individuals who are at risk of developing severe disease or complications from COVID-19 infections (e.g. immunocompromised patients, cancer patients, etc.)

When + Where

Start date : From 9 January 2023 onwards
Locations : KKM hospitals or health clinics (Klinik Kesihatan)
Time : According to the hospital / clinic’s normal operating hours

Those who do not qualify are still eligible for the free COVID-19 vaccine booster doses. You just need to get an appointment at the nearest public or private hospital / clinic registered under ProtectHealth for the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK).

Malaysia COVID-19 Booster Dose Program History

Malaysia started the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose programme on 13 October 2021, targeting those who received the Pfizer vaccine more than 6 months ago.

It was then expanded to those who received the Sinovac vaccine more than 3 months ago, on 22 October 2021.

On 9 November 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) announced that it would be made available to younger adults.

On 24 November 2021, KKM announced that it will be open to anyone above 18, including those who received AstraZeneca, Cansino, Sinopharm and Janssen vaccines.

On 16 December 2021, KKM made it mandatory for vulnerable individuals to receive the booster shot, to be considered as fully-vaccinated.

On 28 December 2021, KKM halved the booster dose interval for most COVID-19 vaccines!

On 21 March 2022, KKM added the CanSino booster shot to the PICK vaccination programme, and updated its booster dose recommendations.

On 14 April 2022, KKM started to offer a second booster shot using the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

On 4 January 2023, KKM updated its booster dose policy, and will now offer walk-in booster dose at all KKM hospitals and clinics.

Did Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Canadian cardiologist Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial die suddenly from vaccine-induced sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)?!

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

 

Claim : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial died over a year ago, but anti-vaccination activists continue to claim him as a victim of COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

Here are some examples on social media:

Two weeks after his booster, Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial, 52 years old, 3 children, renowned Canadian cardiologist of @HorizonHealthNB , athletic and with no medical history passed away suddenly yesterday.

Before – 10/07/2021:
“For those that won’t get the shot for selfish reasons – whatever – I won’t cry at their funeral”

After – 8/11/2021:
Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial, Director of the Interventional Cardiology program at the New Brunswick Heart Centre, died on Nov. 8 at the age of 52.

“For those that won’t get the shot for selfish reasons – whatever – I won’t cry a tear at their funeral”

– Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial
July 2021.

🎉 love stories like these. I only hope he realized his mistake at the end. Jerk!

GoodBye Dr. Sorryass

Truth : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Did Not Die From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all sudden 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 : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Died In His Sleep

Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial (born Sohrab Rawle Anand Lutchmedial on October 15, 1969) was a Canadian cardiologist and the director of the interventional cardiology program at the New Brunswick Heart Centre.

Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial died in his sleep on Monday, November 8, 2021, at his Saint John home, after being on call the day before. Despite what some blogs have written, his cause of death was never revealed.

So anyone who tells you that he died of this or that cause is most likely lying to you.

Fact #2 : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Needed Major Surgery

A year after he died, Faisal Lutchmedial shared more details about his brother’s sudden death, stating that Dr. Sohrab knew that he was going to die younger than expected.

He even told his brother, Faisal, just a week before he died, that he was disappointed at his recent prognosis (of an illness that was not mentioned), and that he would need to have another major surgery sooner than expected.

He told me a week before he passed he was disappointed at his recent prognosis, he was to have major surgery again sooner than expected. Neither of us knew this would be one of our last conversations. But I am glad that I made the trip to see him. We ALWAYS made the time.

One year after I lost my brother, my best friend, I say to you, ALWAYS make the time. Life is too short, even for us that manage to live twice as long as he did. Do what you can to help everyone around you. Love and live with vigour.

While Faisal did not reveal what Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial was suffering from, or what major surgery he was supposed to have before his sudden death, it certainly sounded serious.

One thing is for sure – whatever Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial may have suffered from, it was certainly not a COVID-19 vaccine side effect.

Fact #3 : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Was Vaccinated, But Not Boosted

Like most doctors, Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial was vaccinated against COVID-19. In fact, he was one of the first two health care workers in the Saint John area to get the COVID-19 vaccine on January 17, 2021.

Anti-vaccination activists claim that he died right after receiving a third (booster) dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. However, there is no evidence of that.

In fact, it is impossible for him to receive a third, booster dose of any COVID-19 vaccine, because Health Canada only approved the Pfizer booster dose on November 9, 2021 – one day after Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial died.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

It is impossible for Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial to have died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects, because he was fully-vaccinated at least 9 months before he died.

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 TTS 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.

Recommended : Did Four Doctors Die Right After 4th Vaccine Dose?!

Fact #5 : SADS Is An Inherited Heart Condition

Even if Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), it has nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccines, because SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

SADS is an inherited problem with your heart’s electrical system, which produces an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

SADS also 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.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Sudden Deaths By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

So far, claims of sudden 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!

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

Tyler Sanders : Cause of Death Was Not Vaccine!

The autopsy results of Emmy-nominated actor Tyler Sanders is out, and it showed that he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

Updated @ 2022-12-30 : Added Tyler Sanders’ autopsy report, and official cause of death.
Updated @ 2022-07-09 : Added new info on his funeral, autopsy and cause of death.

Originally posted @ 2022-06-18

 

Claim : Tyler Sanders Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Mere hours after news broke that Tyler Sanders – who starred in Fear of the Walking Dead and 911 Lone Star – died, people started claiming that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

Tyler Sanders dead at 18: 9-1-1 Lone Star actor dies. Seriously. You don’t need a Uni Degree or be a Doctor to 100% know that he died from the COVID Vaccine. Are you people really going to just accept “Suddenly Unknown Reason” as a Valid excuse. FFS.

Tyler Sanders : Cause of Death Was Not 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 : Police Found Tyler Sanders Dead At Home

The Los Angeles police received a call on Thursday, 16 June 2022, to conduct a welfare check on Tyler Sanders, after his friends didn’t hear from him after a night out.

They found Tyler Sanders alone in his home, and pronounced him deceased. His agent, Pedro Tapia, confirmed his death in a statement on Friday, 17 June 2022 :

Tyler was a talented actor with a bright future. He comes from a wonderful family and we ask that you respect their privacy at this time.

Fact #2 : Tyler Sanders’ Death Treated As Suspected Overdose

On July 5, sources connected to the investigation told TMZ that Tyler Sanders’ death was being “treated as a suspected [drug] overdose“.

Tyler Sanders reportedly had a history of drug use, and the LA police found a plastic straw and white powder in the room where his body was found.

Fact #3 : Autopsy Report Confirmed Tyler Sanders’s Cause Of Death

The L.A. County’s Medical Examiner-Coroner stated that they completed his autopsy on Friday (17 June), and posted on their website that they had already released his body (to his family).

At that time, they deferred the report pending additional investigations. Once the results of those tests / studies are in, , will make a final determination of his cause of death.

On Thursday, December 29, 2022, Dr. Parks – the Deputy Medical Examiner in charge of his case finalised the report, stating that his cause of death was fentanyl effects, and it was accidental.

In the autopsy report, the Medical Examiner said that Tyler Sanders told a friend in text messages the night before his death that he was using fentanyl. Tyler did not answer phone calls from that friend, after sending that message about fentanyl.

The Medical Examiner also said that Tyler Sanders had no known medical issues, but had a history of drug abuse of heroin, LSD, mushrooms and Xanax. Finally, the report noted that he was found unresponsive in his own bed, and illicit drugs were found in the bathroom.

Fact #4 : David Sanders Referred To An Apparent Drug Overdose

Someone who attended Tyler Sanders’ funeral in Houston told TMZ that his father, David Sanders, delivered an eulogy in which he told them that Tyler died of an apparent drug overdose.

Fact #5 : Tyler Sanders Was Apparently Battling Depression

Tyler Sanders allegedly started struggling with depression when he began filming “9-1-1”.

David Sanders also told those who attended his funeral “how Tyler’s brain was wired to where he could not feel happiness“.

Fact #6 : Tyler Sanders Looked Healthy + Well 3 Days Prior

Tyler Sanders was on vacation with his family in Vail, Colorado, just a few days before he died.

His last Instagram post was on June 13, which showed him looking real swank in his blue suit. He certainly looks fit and healthy.

Two days earlier, he posted this great shot of white water rafting with his family in Vail, Colorado.

These recent photos contradict claims that he was suffering from vaccine side effects.

Fact #7 : Unknown If Tyler Sanders Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Tyler Sanders was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccines.

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

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 : Vaccine Side Effects Generally Last Only A Few Days

COVID-19 vaccine side effects are generally mild, and last only a few days.

In rare cases, the recipient may suffer from blood clots (AstraZeneca) or myocarditis (Pfizer), but they develop within days of receiving the vaccine, not months later.

If Tyler received the COVID-19 vaccine, he would have received all his doses last year. It is quite impossible for his death to be related to any COVID-19 vaccine he may have received months earlier.

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

Fact #10 : Post-Vaccination Myocarditis Occurs Within Days

If Tyler Sanders was indeed vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine from Pfizer or Moderna, it is true that he has a very small risk of developing post-vaccination myocarditis.

However, he would develop myocarditis within days of the vaccination, with symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, etc.

He would not be able to undertake strenuous activities like… going white water rafting with his family!

I should also point out that the risk of developing myocarditis from a COVID-19 infection is over a hundred times higher than developing myocarditis from three doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

So if you are really worried about myocarditis, you should definitely get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #11 : 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. Here is the latest dozen that I have personally fact checked.

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

Was Tori Spelling Hospitalised Because Of Vaccine?!

Was Tori Spelling hospitalised with breathing difficulties caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Tori Spelling Was Hospitalised Because Of Vaccine!

Right after Tori Spelling announced that she was hospitalised with breathing difficulties, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the former actress was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Here are some examples on social media:

Tori spelling rushed to the hospital with breathing issues and yes vaccinated.

Is this a ‘V for Vaccine’ sign she’s holding up from her hospital bed?
⁦⁦@torispelling ⁩ is, after all, a believer

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

 

Truth : Tori Spelling Was Not Hospitalised Because Of Vaccine!

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…

Fact #1 : Tori Spelling Had Breathing Difficulties + Dizziness

Tori Spelling (born Victoria Davey Spelling on May 16, 1973) announced in a now expired Instagram Story on Wednesday, December 21, that she had been hospitalised the night before after having a “hard time breathing, high blood pressure and crazy dizziness“.

Here I am in [the] hospital since late last night. To all of you who gas lit me when you were told I [was] too sick to work, well here I am.

How about next time [you] take someone at face value and show kindness instead of doubtfulness.

Remember, for people like me, NOT working is a nightmare. I’m a hustler and a workaholic. I always choose work.

She said that her doctor was “running a battery of tests”, and said that she wanted to get well enough to go home to her kids for Christmas.

To be clear – she was not hospitalised for vaccine side effects. COVID-19 vaccines do not cause breathing difficulties, high blood pressure or dizziness.

Fact #2 : Tori Spelling’s Kids Were Sick Too

Before Tori Spelling was hospitalised, her family had been battling fever and flu-like symptoms.

Her 5 year-old son, Beau, was sick for the second time this month, with high fever, vomiting and a stuffy nose, causing him to lose 3 weeks of school.

Poor guy was out 3 weeks sick from school. Finally got him well and back in school all last week and boom now sick again!

Her other two sons – 15 year-old Liam, and 10 year-old Finn, were also sick after the family attended a Disney on Ice show on Saturday, December 10. All three boys sought treatment on December 12.

At Dr now with 3 sickies I mean kiddos…

It is certainly possible that she may have caught something from them.

Recommended : Charlbi Dean : Autopsy Confirms Her Cause of Death!

Fact #3 : Tori Spelling Was Fully Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Tori Spelling posted on May 1, 2021 that she just received her second Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine dose, which meant she was fully-vaccinated by May 15, 2021. She did not post anything about receiving a booster dose.

She cannot possibly be suffering from any vaccine side effects, because they appear within days, not more than 19 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 TTS 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 #4 : COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity injuries to the vaccine; injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like myocarditis and TTS can be proven.

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.

Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS) 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.

Did Leaked Data Show Pfizer Vaccine Would Kill?!

Did leaked data show that Pfizer knew that its COVID-19 vaccine would kill people who took it?!

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

 

Claim : Leaked Data Show Pfizer Knew Vaccine Would Kill!

People have been sharing a photo of The Irish Light newspaper, which claims that leaked data showed that Pfizer knew that its COVID-19 vaccine would kill people who took it!

It’s a long article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Pfizer knew their vaccine would kill

Leaked data shows shocking number of fatalities and side effects now officially associated with covid shots

Recommended : Died Suddenly Movie : More Vaccine Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Leaked Data Did Not Show Pfizer Vaccine Is Dangerous!

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

Fact #1 : The Irish Light Is An Anti-Vaccination Newspaper

While many anti-vaccination activists are promoting the article as coming from an Irish newspaper, The Irish Light is a self-printed newspaper that was launched in August 2021 by two former journalists turned COVID conspiracy theorists – Gemma O’Doherty and John Waters.

Gemma O’Doherty previously worked for the Irish Independent newspaper, while John Waters used to work for The Irish Times.

Unlike regular newspapers which delivers news content, The Irish Light focuses on questioning the effectiveness of vaccines, the COVID pandemic, and other far-right ideas.

Fact #2 : EMA Cyberattack Occurred In January 2021

The Irish Light published their article called “Pfizer knew their vaccine would kill” in April 2022, as part of their 10th issue.

However, the cyber attack on the European Medicines Agency (EMA) it referred to occurred more than a year ago – in January 2021.

Fact #3 : EMA-Pfizer Data Was Leaked To Journalists + Dark Web

More than 40 MB of data was stolen in the EMA cyberattack and released on the dark web, and leaked to several journalists, including from The BMJ and academics worldwide.

The leaked data consisted of confidential documents on the Pfizer BNT162b2 vaccine candidate (later known as the Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY COVID-19 vaccine), which included “internal / confidential email correspondence from November, relating to evaluation processes for COVID-19 vaccines“.

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

Fact #4 : Leaked Documents Was About Quality Of Early Vaccine Batches

The BMJ reviewed the leaked documents, and found that they showed that regulators at the EMA had concerns about the quality of some early commercial batches of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

An email dated 23 November 2020 showed that a high-ranking EMA official complained that Pfizer was not producing its COVID-19 vaccines to the expected specifications.

Specifically, the level of intact mRNA dropped from about 78% in the clinical batches to 55% in the proposed commercial batches. Nothing in the leaked documents referred to safety issues, or side effects.

Fact #5 : Leaked EMA-Pfizer Data Was Tampered Before Release

On 15 January 2021, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) announced that their investigation showed that some of the leaked data was tampered by the hackers before being released.

Some of the correspondence has been manipulated by the perpetrators prior to publication in a way which could undermine trust in vaccines.

The BMJ was criticised for reviewing the leaked documents without first verifying their authenticity and accuracy.

EMA states that the information was partially doctored, and that the perpetrators selected and aggregated data from different users and added additional headings.

It is unclear to us why a respected journal chose to present unverifiable information, in the process damaging an institution that has worked for 25 years in a transparent and successful manner.

Recommended : Does Pfizer CEO aim to cut world population by 50%?

Fact #6 : Leaked Documents Showed EMA Regulation At Work

While anti-vaccination activists framed the leak as evidence of collusion between EMA and Pfizer, they actually show that EMA regulators were doing their jobs.

EMA did not cover up the quality issue, but filed two “major objections” with Pfizer, together with a host of other questions it wanted Pfizer to address.

On 25 November 2020, one of the leaked emails showed that Pfizer had already brought up the level of mRNA in their COVID-19 vaccine lots.

The latest lots indicate that % intact RNA are back at around 70-75%, which leaves us cautiously optimistic that additional data could address the issue.

Ultimately, the EMA authorised the vaccine on 21 December 2020, nothing that “the quality of this medicinal product, submitted in the emergency context of the current (covid-19) pandemic, is considered to be sufficiently consistent and acceptable.

Fact #7 : FDA Never Agreed To Withhold Pfizer Documents For 75 Years

The claim that the US FDA earlier agreed to withhold documents on the Pfizer vaccine for 75 years was debunked months earlier – in December 2021.

The US FDA never asked or agreed to withhold Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine documents for 75 years. That was merely the “interpretation” of Aaron Siri – the lawyer for PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) – the group requesting the data that the FDA used to licence the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Read more : Did FDA Ask For 75 Years To Release Pfizer Vaccine Data?!

Fact #8 : Pfizer Documents Did Not Reveal Thousands Of Side Effects

The claim that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine documents revealed that it had thousands of side effects was debunked in March 2022.

The Pfizer document was publicly released on 17 November 2021, but it took antivaxxers more than 3 months to “discover” the list of 1,291 adverse events of special interest (AESI).

However, the AESI list was not a list of vaccine side effects. It was a list of “adverse events” that must be reported for further investigation.

It was also a generic list, which includes irrelevant adverse events like manufacturing and lab test issues, and even product availability and supply issues, as well as other diseases like MERS and chickenpox.

Why Al Roker Did Not Get Vaccine TTS Blood Clots!

Al Roker has been in and out of hospitals with blood clots, which people are blaming on the COVID-19 vaccine!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out why his blood clots are not from vaccine TTS!

 

Claim : Al Roker Got His Blood Clots From Vaccine TTS!

People are claiming that Al Roker got his blood clots from vaccine-induced thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), after he was admitted to the hospital for blood clots again, right after being discharged!

2 weeks ago, Al Roker 68: hospitalized for clots in his legs & lungs — 59 days after his booster

He was discharged Thanksgiving to MUCH fanfare

NOW: “Roker Rushed Back To Hospital 24 Hrs After Release..”

Al Roker ‘Rushed’ Back to Hospital Within 24 Hours of His Thanksgiving Release

I SURE HOPE THE COVID VACCINE DOESN’T KILL AL 🙏 # NO FAUCI OUCHY FOR ME

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.

Recommended : Jake Flint Died After Wedding, But Not From Vaccine!

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!

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

Did US Military Sentence Stephane Bancel To Death?!

Did the US military just convict Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death?!

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

 

Claim : US Military Sentenced Stephane Bancel To Death!

On 15 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that a US military tribunal just convicted Moderna CEO, Stéphane Bancel, and sentenced him to death!

It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

The U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps and Office of Military Commissions had difficulty finding three impartial panelists to hear evidence against Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel, for every interviewee knew someone whose life the vaccine had shattered—or killed. Following a weeklong search, JAG picked the three—two male Marine Corps officers and a female Navy captain—who expressed the least ill will toward Bancel. Nonetheless, they found Bancel guilty of murder five minutes after Vice Adm. Darse E. Crandall rested JAG’s case and implored the panel to deliver upon Bancel a punishment commensurate to the damage his vaccines had caused the world.

 

Truth : US Military Did NOT Sentence Stephane Bancel To Death!

The truth is – this is just another FAKE STORY created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Everything that Real Raw News posts must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Fact #1 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

This disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news that will go viral, and generate him money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of Stephane Bancel’s Arrest

Only Real Raw News has published his fantastical account of US special forces arresting Stéphane Bancel outside a DC restaurant. That’s because Michael Baxter / Tiffin made it up.

Naturally, there is no news from any legitimate news outlet, or the US military, about Stephane Bancel’s arrest and sentencing.

How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story”?

Read more : Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel Arrested For Vaccine Fraud?

A March 2018 screenshot of Michael Tuffin, who goes by the pseudonym Michael Baxter

Fact #3 : Moderna Is A Public-Listed Company

Moderna is a public-listed company, and is traded on the Nasdaq as MRNA. Its shareholders would have to be informed if their company CEO was really arrested, and sentenced to death.

It is NOT POSSIBLE to keep quiet and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s not even legal to cover up such an event from the shareholders.

Fact #4 : Stéphane Bancel + Moderna Issued A Press Statement

On Thursday, November 16, 2022 – one day after Real Raw News published that fake story, Moderna announced positive results for its two bivalent vaccines targeting the Omicron variant of COVID-19 – mRNA-1273.214, and mRNA-1273.222.

Instead of being incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay, as Michael Baxter/Tiffin claimed, Stephane Bancel announced from Cambridge, Massachusetts that:

We are pleased to see that both of our bivalent booster vaccine candidates offer superior protection against Omicron BA.4/BA.5 variants compared to our original booster, which is encouraging given COVID-19 remains a leading cause of hospitalisation and death globally. In addition, the superior response against Omicron persisted for at least three months after the mRNA-1273.214 booster.

Only Michael Baxter / Tiffin can persist with such a stupid lie, and only his idiotic fans will continue to believe his fake stories.

Fact #5 : Only Enemy Combatants Are Detained At Gitmo

It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that a US military tribunal in Gitmo (Guantanamo Bay) convicted Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death.

The Guantanamo Bay prison is only used to detain high-value enemy combatants. Stephane Bancel is not an enemy combatant by any military or legal definition, and would never be detained there.

If Stephane Bancel really committed a crime in the United States, he would have been brought to trial in an American court.

Fact #6 : US Military Tribunals Are Only For Foreign Combatants

It is also stupid for Real Raw News to claim that Bancel was trialed and convicted as an enemy combatant in a military tribunal, when he is a French civilian.

Military tribunals in the United States can only be conducted for members of enemy forces during wartime. The United States is not at war with France.

Needless to say – Stephane Bancel is also not in the French military, so even if he was arrested, there is no way he would be tried in a military tribunal.

Fact #7 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

It is also hilarious that Real Raw News readers actually believe the bullshit that someone sentenced to death would be executed just days later.

That may be possible in a country like North Korea, but certainly not in the United States

Death row inmates in the United States wait an average of 178 months – about 15 years after their sentencing, before they are executed.

In fact, none of the six Gitmo inmates charged with capital crime in the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and the attack on USS Cole in 2000, have actually been trialled to date, never mind convicted and sentenced to death.

Fact #8 : Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Under FDA Regulatory Oversight

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was confirmed to be safe and effective, after it successfully concluded its clinical trials with an efficacy of 94.5% against symptomatic COVID-19 infection, in a large study involving over 30,000 participants.

The VRBPAC committee vetted and discussed the study findings on 17 December 2020, and recommended that the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine receive its Emergency Use Authorisation, which the FDA granted on 18 December 2020.

Like ALL other vaccines, the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was under FDA regulatory oversight. If Moderna lied about their results, the FDA would not have continued to re-issue or amend its EUA and full approval time and time again.

Letter of Authorization (Reissued) October 12, 2022

Can 4th Vaccine Jab Shut Down Our Immune System?!

Did the mainstream media just admit that the 4th vaccine jab can shut down our immune system?!

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

 

Claim : 4th Vaccine Jab Can Shut Down Our Immune System!

Anti-vaccination activists are excitedly sharing this Good Morning America (GMA) video, claiming that the mainstream media has now admitted that the 4th vaccine jab can shut down our immune system!

For your convenience, here is my transcript of the relevant part of the video (at around 1:05) :

People who have high antibody levels… there is the potential – I want to underscore the potential, we haven’t seen any evidence of this immune phenomenon known as tolerance, where if you already have high antibody levels, and you get another booster that your immune system can start to say, well, what am I needed for, and can kind of start to shut down.

 

Truth : No Vaccine / Booster Jab Can Shut Down Our Immune System!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists to scare people into not protecting themselves against COVID-19.

Let me share with you the FACTS, and tell you WHY this is just fake news…

Fact #1 : Jennifer Ashton Was A Guest On GMA

First, let me establish some context of the video. It was a Good Morning America (GMA) video, in which Dr. Jennifer Lee Garflen Ashton was a guest.

She is a board-certified obstetrician and gynaecologist, who is also ABC News chief medical correspondent. You will see that stated on the chyron at about 0:08 of the video.

Fact #2 : Video Was On Antibody Surge From 4th Vaccine Dose

The GMA segment was discussing the May 9, 2022 study published in the Lancet, showing that the 4th vaccine dose (a second booster dose) delivered a large surge of antibodies.

Fact #3 : Video Was Recorded On May 10, 2022

The video is actually pretty old, being recorded two months ago – on May 10, 2022.

It was only in July 2022 that anti-vaccination activists stumbled on what Dr. Jennifer Ashton said in that video.

Fact #4 : Tolerance Does NOT Shut Down Immune System

When Dr. Ashton said that your immune system “can kind of start to shut down“, she was referring to your immune system ignoring the vaccine, not that it would actually shut down your immune system.

This phenomenon is known as immune tolerance or immunotolerance, which she also mentioned in the video. It happens when your own immune system no longer reacts to the allergen (like peanut or a vaccine).

If you develop a tolerance to the vaccine, your immune system does not shut down. The vaccine simply does not trigger the immune system to produce additional antibodies. It just goes, “Who cares???”

Fact #5 : Dr. Ashton Said There Was No Evidence Of Tolerance

In the video, Dr. Ashton stated very clearly that “we haven’t seen any evidence of this immune phenomenon known as tolerance“.

She was only mentioning tolerance to explain why the CDC is being cautious and recommending the 4th vaccine dose – a second booster dose – only for 50 years and older, or those who are immunocompromised.

Unfortunately, anti-vaccination activists are twisting her words to convey the false narrative that the 4th vaccine dose can shut down our immune system.

Fact #6 : COV-BOOST Study Showed No Evidence Of Tolerance

The study the GMA video was discussing looked at whether the fourth dose, which is a second booster dose, would deliver a good boost of antibodies, or trigger tolerance and therefore produce little to no additional antibodies.

This study was based on the COV-BOOST trial – a multicentre, blinded, randomised controlled trial (RCT) of third doses, in which there was a sub-study of a fourth dose.

The study, which was peer-reviewed and published in the Lancet, showed that there was no immune tolerance to the 4th vaccine dose.

In fact, it showed that the 4th vaccine dose induced a significant boost in antibody levels, especially for the elderly – those who are 70 years and older.

14 Days After
4th Dose
Less than
70 Years Old
70 Years Old
+ Above
vs. Day 28 after 3rd Dose +37% +68%
vs. Day 0 after 4th Dose +745% +1239%

Fact #7 : Anti-Vaccine Claims All Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists twisting the facts to deceive you into believing that vaccines are dangerous.

So far, their COVID-19 vaccine claims have proven to be false… at every instance!

Do mRNA Vaccines Cause Invasion Of Killer Lymphocytes?!

Do mRNA vaccines cause killer lymphocytes to attack our healthy cells, destroying our immune system?!

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

 

Claim : mRNA Vaccines Cause Invasion Of Killer Lymphocytes!

People are excitedly sharing this post on WhatsApp and on social media, claiming that mRNA vaccines cause killer lymphocytes to destroy our immune system.

It claims that this is why people vaccinated against COVID-19 are suffering from shingles, tuberculosis, cancer, monkeypox, etc.

It’s rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Shingles, TB will break out very soon, all over everywhere… It is caused by our dysfunctional immune system that is caused by killer lymphocytes self attack….. because the target is all the spiked proteins…

Our killer lymphocytes, is protecting us by killing viruses. Instead, the killer lymphocytes look for all the spiked proteins that leak into all our organs and attack our own cells. Why attack our own healthy cells. Because Spiked Proteins are all spiked to our healthy cells in all the organs ..The spiked leak into our organs!

 

Truth : mRNA Vaccines Do NOT Cause Killer Lymphocytes To Destroy Immune System!

This appears to be yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) as part of their anti-mRNA vaccine campaign.

Here are the reasons why this is just more Chinese wumao bullshit…

Fact #1 : All COVID-19 Vaccines Target The Spike Protein

First, it is important that you understand that all COVID-19 vaccines focus on the spike protein for two main reasons :

  1. It is unique to the SARS-CoV-2 virus
  2. It is what the virus uses to attach to our cells, and enter them.

Antibodies that the vaccines “create” will therefore bind to the spike proteins, and physically block the COVID-19 virus from attaching to our cells.

All approved COVID-19 vaccines target the spike protein for this very reason, even inactivated virus vaccines like the Chinese Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccine.

Fact #2 : mRNA Vaccines Do Not Leak Spike Proteins

In an effort to promote Chinese inactivated virus vaccines, China has been conducting a prolonged and extensive disinformation campaign about mRNA vaccines through their 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛).

One of the fake stories they have been spreading is how mRNA vaccines create spike proteins that “leak” or go into our organs, or all over our bodies.

The truth is the spike proteins created by the mRNA vaccines do not leak anywhere. The spike proteins are produced by a limited number of cells that received those mRNA instructions, and they are displayed on the cell surface for our immune system to see.

Once the immune system sees those spike proteins on the cell surfaces, it recognises them as “foreign”, and produces antibodies to bind to those spike proteins.

These spike proteins remain on the cell surface. Eventually, our body’s phagocytes will consume these cells, because they have been identified as “foreign”. So there are none to float around like balloons…

Fact #4 : mRNA Vaccines Do Not Harm Our Immune System

mRNA vaccines do not harm our immune system. Despite what the Chinese wumao keep saying, mRNA vaccines work just like other vaccines.

All COVID-19 vaccines – mRNA or otherwise – are like training camps for our immune system. They mimic the SARS-CoV-2 virus, like “fake enemy soldiers”.

By pretending to be the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the vaccines let your own immune system learn to identify the real virus, and create antibodies to block it.

I want to be very clear – all COVID-19 vaccines – mRNA or otherwise – do not harm your immune system. They only enhance your immune system.

Fact #5 : Vaccines Do Not Stay In Our Body

Vaccines – mRNA or otherwise – do not stay in our body. If they did, we would have lifelong immunity, and we wouldn’t need booster doses!

Most of the vaccines spike proteins  vaccine will be gone 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 #6 : Booster Doses Are Refresher Classes For Your Immune System

Unfortunately, antibody levels will naturally drop over time, which is why we need booster doses to trigger our immune system to produce more antibodies.

Booster doses work like refresher classes in college. Every time you receive a booster dose, it reminds your immune system that the virus is still a threat.

This kickstarts the production of antibodies, boosting your protection against COVID-19.

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

Fact #7 : Vaccines Target Specific Diseases

All vaccines are designed to target a specific disease. They cannot prevent other diseases.

COVID-19 vaccines can only help your immune system fight off the SARS-CoV-2 virus. They cannot prevent shingles, tuberculosis, cancer or monkeypox.

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 means you are protected from severe disease and deaths from COVID-19, not from all the ills in this world.

Fact #8 : mRNA Vaccines Do Not Cause Shingles, TB, Cancer Or Monkeypox

Just to be very clear – COVID-19 vaccines based on mRNA technology do not cause shingles, tuberculosis, cancer or monkeypox.

Fact #9 : Shingles, Tuberculosis Or Monkeypox Are Not Hereditary

Shingles, tuberculosis and monkeypox are not hereditary diseases. You are not born with these diseases.

Shingles (herpes zoster) is caused by a previous chickenpox infection from the varicella zoster virus (VZV). People vaccinated against chickenpox will not suffer from shingles.

Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It can be prevented by getting the BCG (Bacillus Calmette–Guérin) vaccine.

Monkeypox is a viral infection caused by the monkeypox virus. It can be prevented using the smallpox vaccine.

Read more : Monkeypox : What You Must Know About This Viral Infection!

Fact #10 : China Is Developing mRNA Vaccines Too

This is for those who keep getting anti-mRNA posts like these from pro-CCP netizens.

Even though the Chinese wumao keeps disparaging mRNA vaccines, China has actually been trying to develop its own mRNA vaccine called ARCoVax.

Unfortunately, it has not been able to clear Phase 3 trials, which is why China is stuck using Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines, which have poor efficacy.

The truth is – mRNA vaccines are the future, allowing for very specific targeting of certain proteins, as opposed to a shotgun approach. They also allow for faster adaptation to changes in the proteins.

As Zhuang Shilihe, a Guangzhou-based immunological expert told Global Times, “grasping mRNA technology is very important for China, not only to control the COVID pandemic but as treatment in cancer and rare diseases“.

This is partly why China was pushing hard for a WTO patent waiver on vaccines. They need to get access to mRNA technology used by Pfizer and Moderna to improve their own mRNA vaccines.

You can be certain that when China finally succeeds in producing its own mRNA vaccines, the wumao propaganda machine will change its tune.

Did Comedian Nick Nemeroff Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Juno-nominated comedian, Nick Nemeroff, die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

Updated @ 2022-07-06 : Added Nick’s autopsy and funeral details, as well as his condition prior to his death.
Originally posted @ 2022-06-30

 

Claim : Nick Nemeroff Died From Vaccine SADS!

After news broke that Juno-nominated comedian, Nick Nemeroff, died in his sleep, people started claiming that he died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

Two doses of the vaccine! Publicly refuses any Booster!

Very healthy young 32 yr old! DIES SUDDENLY!!!!!!!!! Wake up people!!!!!!!!!!

Comedian Nick Nemeroff dies suddenly at 32…

His manager said in a text message to CBC News that he didn’t know the cause of death but that he “died in his sleep. 😱😱😱

⚠️Not so much coincidence, this is Vaccines Disaster!

Last words of Comedian Nick Nemeroff who was killed at 32 for speaking up against the vaccine… there’s a covert assassination program going on and those that speak out are targets….

No Evidence Nick Nemeroff Died From Vaccine SADS!

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 : Nick Nemeroff’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown

According to an obituary posted by a Montreal funeral home, and his manager, Morgan Flood of Grand Wave Entertainment, Nicholas (Nick) Nemeroff died in his sleep on Monday, June 27, 2022.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Nick Nemeroff, on Monday, June 27, 2022. Beloved son of Howard and Joanne. Wonderful brother and brother-in-law of Davida and Josh, Alex and Tracy Nemeroff. Incredible uncle of Ora, Imogene, Leo and Marina. Adored grandson of the late Archie Nemeroff.

His cause of death is still unknown. Unknown does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury”. Unknown means that, at this time, NO ONE KNOWS what Nick Nemeroff died of.

It also means that anyone who claims that Nick Nemeroff died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.

Nick’s older brother, Alex, said that his funeral would only take place after an autopsy was performed to determine the cause of death :

We’re still waiting for word as to what happened. There were no outward signs of anything. No one expected this. He was just way too young for this to happen.

Nick’s funeral took place on July 4, 2022 so his autopsy has been completed. We should wait for the official word, from his family or manager, or an autopsy report, to know his actual cause of death.

Note : You can leave a message of condolence to the Nemeroff family here. The family also said that donations in his memory may be made to the Planned Parenthood chapter of your choice.

Fact #2 : His Manager + Family Never Mentioned Vaccine As A Cause

His manager, Morgan Flood, and the Nemeroff family, never mentioned vaccine as Nick’s cause of death.

In their statements and social media posts, they never once mentioned his vaccination, or cause of death. Not even his older brother, Alex.

So anyone who claims that Nick Nemeroff died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

Fact #3 : Nick Wasn’t Feeling Well

Nick Nemeroff was slated to perform at the Comedy Nest on Saturday, 25 June 2022 – 3 days before he died, but he wasn’t feeling well.

So his older brother, Alex, left a message for Comedy Nest’ boss, David Acer, that “Nick wasn’t feeling well, and would be unable to perform“.

Fact #4 : Video Of Nick Nemeroff Was From 2021

Many anti-vaccination activists have been sharing posting a video of Nick, claiming that it showed him disparaging the Pfizer vaccine in his last words before dying.

One of them even created a video, claiming that Nick posted the video from his hospital bed.

The truth is – that was an old video Nick posted on August 23, 2021, in which he joked about being an antivaxxer for the booster shot.

I will not get the third shot. I will not.

Pfizer me once, no shame.

Pfizer me twice, shame on COVID.

Pfizer me three times, shame on you.

You want me to get a third shot, what’s next? A fifth shot?

Nick was mocking those who are worried about getting the third shot, which he received on Christmas Day, December 25, 2021.

Even in that post, he mocked those who believe that ivermectin can cure COVID-19.

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

Nick Nemeroff last received a COVID-19 vaccine more than 6 months ago, if his December 25, 2021 post above is accurate.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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 #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 : There Are Thousands Of SADS Deaths Every Year

It is possible that Nick Nemeroff may have died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

But that does not mean SADS is caused by COVID-19 vaccines. That would be rather ludicrous as SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

SADS also 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.

SADS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

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.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against 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.

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

Pfizer + Moderna Bivalent COVID Vaccines Are Almost Here!

Both Pfizer and Moderna have successfully tested their bivalent COVID-19 vaccines which offer significantly better protection against Omicron and its sub variants!

 

Pfizer + Moderna Bivalent COVID Vaccines Are Almost Here!

Pfizer and Moderna announced, on 25 June and 8 June respectively, that they successfully tested their bivalent COVID-19 vaccines.

The Moderna bivalent COVID-19 vaccine targets both the original SARS-CoV-2 strain, as well as the current Omicron variant. Moderna says it’s their lead candidate for the Fall 2022 booster dose.

Pfizer tested both a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine, as well as a monovalent vaccine that targets the Omicron variant, in two dose levels – the “regular” 30 µg, and a higher 60 µg.

All three mRNA vaccine candidates offered significantly higher neutralising antibody titres against the Omicron variant.

The US FDA and other health regulators are now looking into whether to offer them as a booster dose for the fall season.

 

Pfizer + Moderna Bivalent COVID Vaccines : What We Know So Far…

Moderna Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine

Designed as a booster dose, the Moderna bivalent COVID-19 vaccine contains the original mRNA-1273 (Spikevax) vaccine and a vaccine candidate targeting the Omicron variant.

The resulting mRNA-1273.214 mix was tested at the standard 50 µg dose, and found to increase the geometric mean title (GMT) against Omicron by approximately 8X above the baseline level (without the booster dose).

Antibody levels dropped after a month, but the new mRNA-1273.214 vaccine candidate still showed significantly higher antibody levels against the Omicron variant, compared to the original Spikevax vaccine.

GMT Levels
(after 1 month)
Bivalent
Candidate
Original
Spikevax
Difference
Ancestral SARS-CoV-2 5977 5649 +5.8%
Omicron Variant 2372 1473 +61.0%

Moderna also said that the new bivalent vaccine candidate has a similar safety profile to its original Spikevax vaccine, when both vaccines were administered as a second booster dose.

Pfizer Bivalent + Monovalent COVID-19 Vaccines

Pfizer and BioNTech tested both an Omicron-specific monovalent vaccine, as well as a bivalent mix like Moderna. They also tested them in both the standard 30 µg dose, and a higher 60 µg dose.

The Omicron-only booster dose offered the strongest immune response against the Omicron variant – 2X to 3X higher than the original COMIRNATY vaccine.

Their bivalent booster dose candidate, on the other hand, offered 1.5X to 2X higher antibody levels against the Omicro variant than the original COMIRNATY vaccine.

However, health authorities are likely to prefer the bivalent version as it will boost protection against the original virus, as well as the Omicron variant at the same time.

Pfizer Vaccine Type GMR
(vs. Omicron)
60 µg Monovalent 3.15
30 µg Monovalent 2.23
60 µg Bivalent 1.97
30 µg Bivalent 1.56
30 µg Original Vaccine Baseline

One month after administration, both monovalent and bivalent Pfizer vaccine candidates offered significantly higher neutralising antibodies against the Omicron BA.1 variant.

Pfizer Vaccine Type GMT
(vs. Omicron)
60 µg Monovalent 19.6X
30 µg Monovalent 13.5X
60 µg Bivalent 10.9X
30 µg Bivalent 9.1X
Without Booster Baseline

Pfizer also said that both vaccine candidates demonstrated a favourable safety and tolerability profile, similar to the original Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

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.

Did NBA Star Caleb Swanigan Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did 25 year-old former NBA star Caleb Swanigan die from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Caleb Swanigan Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Mere hours after news broke that former NBA and Purdue basketball star, Caleb Swanigan died, people started claiming that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

🎯🎯”Funny though… I read far more stories of these deaths than of young people dying from COVID. I haven’t seen a single story on deaths of kids from COVID. Have you?”
-Steve Kirsch

Caleb Swanigan: How can a 25-year-old die from natural causes?

He died of natural causes? Like the natural causes from getting the covid vaccine? Caleb Swanigan, former Purdue standout and first-round NBA draft pick, dead at 25

Sorry but 25-year-old athletes do not die of “natural causes”. What a lie. Another vexed young person drops dead.

Vaccine coverup, Pfizer and Moderna makes billions in profit, with no liability. #swanigan #purdue #VaccineInjured #vaccinesideeffects

Read more : Did Tyler Sanders Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

No Evidence Caleb Swanigan Died From 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 : Coroner Confirmed Swanigan Died Of Natural Causes

The Allen County Coroners Office had already finished its autopsy, and confirmed to multiple media sources that Caleb Swanigan died of natural causes at the Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The coroner’s office senior investigator Rebecca Maze also told them that a private doctor will be handling Swanigan’s death certificate.

There is no evidence Swanigan’s cause of death was COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Death from vaccine side effects can be proven. Vaccine-induced myocarditis, for example, has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis.

Fact #2 : Swanigan Struggled With Weight Issues

Caleb Swanigan had an troubled childhood, spending time in homeless shelters before being adopted by former Detroit Lions star turned sports agent, Roosevelt Barnes.

Swanigan struggled with his weight growing up, weighing 360 lbs (163 kg) as a 13 year-old; but with Barnes’ encouragement, he finished high school as a 6 ft 9 in tall basketball player with a weight of just 260 lbs (118 kg).

After leaving the NBA in Spring 2020, he had a stint with the Portland Trail Blazers, but opted out in the 2022 NBA Bubble due to personal reasons.

Since then, he put on a lot of weight which was noticeable when he was arrested for possession of 3.4 pounds (1.5 kg) of marijuana on December 23, 2022.

When Swanigan appeared for his May 17, 2021 court date, the former basketball player already weighed over 400 lbs (181 kg). So it is possible that his weight issues may have played a part in his early death.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Caleb Swanigan Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Caleb Swanigan was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

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

Unless we know for sure he was vaccinated, anyone who tells you he died from the vaccine is simply lying.

Fact #4 : 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 #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Generally Last Only A Few Days

COVID-19 vaccine side effects are generally mild, and last only a few days.

In rare cases, the recipient may suffer from blood clots (AstraZeneca) or myocarditis (Pfizer / Moderna), but they develop within days of receiving the vaccine, not months later.

If Swanigan received the COVID-19 vaccine, he would have received all his doses last year. It is quite impossible for his death to be related to any COVID-19 vaccine he may have received months earlier.

Fact #6 : 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 Study Show Pfizer Vaccine Altering Liver DNA In 6 Hours?!

Did a Swedish study show that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine altered the DNA of human liver cells in just 6 hours?!

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

 

Claim : Study Show Pfizer Vaccine Altering Liver DNA In 6 Hours!

The Expose is back again, with yet another “fakexpose” on the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. This time, they are recycling a February 2022 fake story that I fact checked earlier.

Here are selected excerpts from their long-winded article. Feel free to skip it, and head to the next section for the facts.

A Swedish study has demonstrated and confirmed that the mRNA in the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid injections infiltrates cells and transcribes its message onto human DNA within 6 hours, altering our own DNA.

The findings come after a previous study published in October 2021 from Sweden found the spike protein enters our cells nuclei and impairs the mechanism cells have to repair damaged DNA.

Read more : Did 800 People Quit Pfizer Vaccine Trial Over Death / Injury?!

 

Truth : Study Did Not Show Pfizer Vaccine Altering Liver DNA In 6 Hours

This is yet another example of vaccine fake news based on the intentional misinterpretation of a single scientific study.

Here is what you really need to know about this Lund University study… and The Expose.

Fact #1 : The Expose Is A Fake News Website

The Expose is notorious for creating and propagating fake news on everything from COVID-19 to vaccines and the Ukraine war.

I investigated several articles they wrote, and they were all found to be completely false, or intentionally misleading.

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

Fact #2 : Study Did NOT Say Pfizer Vaccine Alters Our DNA

First things first – the Lund University study is called Intracellular Reverse Transcription of Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 In Vitro in Human Liver Cell Line, and you can read it in its entirety here.

If you read just the discussion, you will note that the study authors actually pointed out that their study does NOT show that the Pfizer vaccine integrates with the liver cell DNA, or alters it in any way.

At this stage, we do not know if DNA reverse transcribed from BNT162b2 is integrated into the cell genome.

To be clear, the study offers no evidence that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine alters our DNA in any way or form.

Fact #3 : It Was A Laboratory Study

I should also point out the obvious fact that this was an in-vitro study – a laboratory study, not a clinical study.

In-vitro studies are important, but they cannot be extrapolated to make any conclusion about what actually happens in a human body.

For example, in-vitro studies have shown that hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin have an inhibitory effect on the SARS-CoV-2 virus; but once tested in actual human beings – they were shown to have no clinical benefit.

In other words – what works in a laboratory, may not work in an actual human being.

Read more : Study Shows 10X Ivermectin Can’t Prevent Severe COVID-19!

Fact #4 : Study Was Based On Liver Cancer Cells

The casual reader of the Lund University study will not realise that Huh7 (or Huh-7) cells are not ordinary liver cells that you or I have.

Huh7 cells were derived from the liver tumour of a 57 year-old Japanese man, and are special because :

  • they are immortal liver cancer cells that can keep multiplying
  • they are highly-susceptible to Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection
  • they are genetically different, with an abnormal number of chromosomes (between 55 and 63, normal human cells have 46)

The Huh7 cell line is useful for the study of liver cancer and Hepatitis C, as well as drugs that may combat HCV; but it is important to understand that Huh7 cells are not representative of normal human cells.

Fact #5 : Huh7 Liver Cells Were Cultured In Plates

For a “more physiologically relevant study of viruses“, these Huh7 cells have to be cultured in a NASA-designed 3D Rotating Wall Vessel (RWV) bioreactor.

These RWV bioreactors create 3D aggregates of Huh7 cells that are more “similar in structure and function” to their in vivo counterparts, with “completely altered gene expression and differentiation patterns“.

In other words, these RWV-grown Huh7 cells look and behave differently, more like regular human cells compared to plate-cultured Huh7 cells.

For the record, the Lund University study used plate-cultured Huh7 cells, and not RWV-grown Huh7 cells.

There is nothing wrong with that, but we should keep in mind that these cells are not an ideal representation of human cells.

This is what a 24-cell culture plate looks like

Fact #6 : Normal Human Cells Don’t Produce LINE-1 Enzyme

The scientists chose to use these Huh7 cells because like many cancerous cells, they express (produce) the LINE-1 enzyme.

LINE-1 is a reverse transcriptase that converts mRNA into DNA, so it is not surprising that the study would show it converting mRNA from the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine into DNA. That is literally what it is meant to do.

Normal human cells have the LINE-1 gene, but it is not expressed. Normal human cells do not produce the LINE-1 enzyme, which is why they could not use regular human cells in this study.

That is also why it is inappropriate to use the Huh7 cell culture to evaluate how mRNA vaccines would actually work or behave in humans.

Fact #7 : Transcribed DNA Did Not Enter Nucleus

The study only looked at whether mRNA from the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine can be transcribed into DNA by the LINE-1 enzyme.

As the study showed – yes, it can… because that’s what the LINE-1 enzyme does. But the study does not show that the transcribed DNA entered the cell nucleus and altered human DNA.

While that is plausible, it would require another enzyme called integrase, that viruses produce, to move that DNA into the cell nucleus itself.

Without the integrase enzyme, the DNA transcribed by the LINE-1 enzyme will only float outside, and will never integrate with the DNA inside the cell nucleus.

Did Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Combine With DNA In Liver Cells?!

Fact #8 : mRNA Vaccines Do Not Modify Our Genes

An mRNA vaccine only contains a limited number of lipid nanoparticles containing those delicate mRNA instructions. So only a limited number of cells are involved in the vaccination process.

Even if it is somehow possible for the mRNA instructions from the vaccine to enter the cell nucleus and integrate with the DNA inside, it will only affect those cells.

Our cells die and are replaced by new cells all the time, so even if hypothetically the vaccine “infects” and modifies the DNA of a few hundred thousand cells, those cells will eventually die and be replaced by new cells without the modified DNA.

It is simply not possible for mRNA vaccines to modify our genes.

Fact #9 : Viruses Integrate With Cell DNA

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

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

HIV-1 virus cell infection, credit : Günther Witzany

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

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

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

FDA Approves Pfizer + Moderna Vaccine For Children Under 5!

The US FDA just approved both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for children under 5 years old!

Here is what you need to know!

 

FDA Approves Pfizer + Moderna Vaccine For Children Under 5!

On 17 June 2022, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for children under 5 years old!

Specifically, the FDA authorised the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 6 months to 4 years old; and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 6 months to 17 years old.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was already authorised for use in children in 5 years and above, but Moderna’s vaccine was only authorised for use in adults 18 years and above.

With this FDA authorisation, both Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY and Moderna Spikevax vaccines are now approved for use in all individuals who are at least 6 months old.

Many parents, caregivers and clinicians have been waiting for a vaccine for younger children and this action will help protect those down to 6 months of age.  As we have seen with older age groups, we expect that the vaccines for younger children will provide protection from the most severe outcomes of COVID-19, such as hospitalization and death,” said FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf, M.D. “Those trusted with the care of children can have confidence in the safety and effectiveness of these COVID-19 vaccines and can be assured that the agency was thorough in its evaluation of the data.

Vaccinations in the United States are expected to begin as early as next week, after the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) makes its own recommendations on the vaccines.

 

Pfizer + Moderna Vaccine For Children Under 5 : A Quick Primer

The Pfizer vaccine for children 6 months through 4 years of age consists of three 3 µg doses – which is 1/10th of the adult dose.

The first two doses are administered 21 days apart, followed by the third dose at least 8 weeks after the second dose.

According to Pfizer, their clinical trial involving 4,526 children showed that the adverse reactions were fewer, and mostly mild to moderate, and short lived. They also said that the lower-dose vaccine produced comparable protection to 16-25 year old people who received two adult 30 µg doses.

The Moderna vaccine for children 6 months to 5 years of age consists of two 25 µg doses – which is 1/4th of the adult dose.

The Moderna vaccine is also authorised for a third dose, administered at least one month after the second dose, for people who have certain kinds of immunocompromise.

According to Moderna, their clinical trial involving 6,700 children showed that the majority of adverse events were mild or moderate, with no deaths, myocarditis, pericarditis or MIS-C reported.

They also stated that the protection offered by this lower paediatric dose was comparable to the much higher adult dose of 100 µg.

Did Indian Singer KK Die From Vaccine Heart Attack?!

Did famous Indian singer KK die from a heart attack caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Indian Singer KK Died From Vaccine Heart Attack!

Within hours of news breaking that famous Indian playback singer KK (Krishnakumar Kunnath) died after performing at a concert, people started claiming that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Krishnakumar Kunnath cause of death: Bollywood singer dies in Kolkata after ‘feeling unwell’
And another one down, another Vaccine Death. Number 58 so far. Unexpected and Sudden Deaths.
NOT Normal like the MSM and Govt are saying. Wake up.

I’m not that knowledgeable of #Bollywood or #Indian #singers,but #KK is another victim of this increasing number of sudden deaths-particularly of people in their early 50s. Was KK’s death related to #COVID19 #vaccines? #COVID19Vaccine #VaccineSideEffects.
JUST IN: Indian singer KK dies, was performing on stage in Kolkata, India. Vaccines continue to kill people.

#kk, #PuneethRajkumar, #siddharthshukla, #amitmistry, #RajKaushal and so many other young men..collapsing randomly.. plus the 1000's of athletes who've died of cardiac arrest in the last 2 years. Blame everything including #Putin. #vaccine?
No,it must be that nasty #climatechange

Wake up friends. Say NO to this forced Covid jabs!

Be extra careful about its side effects. See how vaccines are killing innocents

Death of #KK is such devastating news guys. How long before people understand that its nothing just a weapon and WHO is part of it buddies!

 

No Evidence KK Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It's becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths on the COVID-19 vaccine.

So it's no surprise that they would immediately claim that KK (Krishnakumar Kunnath) died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why these claims are FAKE NEWS...

Fact #1 : KK Died Hours After Performing At Concert

On 31 May 2022, KK performed at a concert at the Nazrul Mancha auditorium, in South Kolkata, India.

After the show, he complained of feeling extremely cold, and returned to this hotel, where he was mobbed by fans who asked to take photos.

After obliging some of them, he refused the others and headed upstairs, where he reportedly stumbled and fell to the floor.

Attempts were made to revive him, but when they failed, he was rushed to the hospital, but the doctors pronounced him dead on arrival.

Fact #2 : Concert Was Overcrowded

KK was reportedly sweating profusely during the concert, although it is unknown if he was unwell at the time.

Many concertgoers complained that the air-conditioning was not working, and the heat was oppressive and there was a lack of ventilation.

This was likely due to overcrowding at the auditorium, which was confirmed by staff at the Nazrul Manch auditorium where KK last performed :

Our seat capacity was 2,482 but the crowd was more than double the capacity. The crowd broke the gate.

Fact #3 : KK's Cause Of Death Was Cardiac Arrest

At this moment, there is no official cause of death. However, the preliminary findings of his post-mortem indicated that he died from a heart attack.

The Kolkata Police registered a case of unnatural death to investigate the cause of his death, and understand the circumstances that led to his demise.

We have started an investigation into singer KK’s death and a case of unnatural death has been registered with the New Market Police Station. We are talking to the hotel authorities and scrutinising CCTV footage to understand what had happened before he was taken to the hospital.

Doctors at the Kolkata hospital where KK was taken to, said that they suspected "cardiac arrest" was the cause of his death.

However, a post mortem examination was conducted to ascertain his exact cause of death, and the final report will be available after 72 hours.

The autopsy report will throw light on the exact cause of death. We are waiting for it.

At no point in time or circumstance did any doctor, police officer or any member of KK's team or family suggest that his death was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

The police have also said that there as no foul play behind KK's death, and told the news agency PTI that the initial report shows that he died from a heart attack (myocardial infarction).

The initial report suggested that the singer died because of myocardial infarction. There was no foul play behind his death. Clinical examination also found that the singer was having prolonged cardiac issues.

The doctor who performed the autopsy also told PTI that he appeared to have a long-standing heart disease :

The vocalist had 80 per cent blockage in the left main coronary artery and small blockages in various other arteries and sub-arteries. None of the blockades was 100 per cent…During Tuesday’s performance, the singer was walking around and at times dancing with the crowd which created excessive excitement that caused a stoppage of blood flow leading to cardiac arrest.

Fact #4 : KK's Vaccination Status Is Unknown

Currently, it is unknown if KK was vaccinated or not, against COVID-19. There is no COVID-19 vaccination mandate in India.

That said, India has a high vaccination rate with 81% of the eligible population fully-vaccinated, as of 25 May 2022.

So it is highly likely that KK was vaccinated, but we do not know that for sure.

Fact #5 : Most Indians Received Covishield

The vast majority (over 80%) of Indian citizens received the Covishield vaccine, which is a locally-produced AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

If KK was vaccinated, it is highly likely he received the Covishield / AstraZeneca vaccine. But again - this has yet to be confirmed.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause Heart Attack

Irrespective of which COVID-19 vaccine he received, it is important to note that no COVID-19 vaccine causes heart attacks.

The Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines cause cause myocarditis / pericarditis, but they are generally mild in nature and affect adolescents and young adults.

KK was 53 years old when he died. Even if took the mRNA vaccines, they would have posed no risk at his 50+ age group.

Age Group Male Rate
(per million doses)
Baseline
(per million doses)
12-17 32.4 2.0
18-24 30.7 1.8
25-29 12.2 1.9
30-39 6.9 1.9
40-49 3.5 1.9
50-64 1.9 1.9
65+ 0.61 1.05

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Heart Attacks

It is also important to point out that COVID-19 vaccines are only designed to help our body fight off severe disease, and prevent death from COVID-19.

They will not prevent other causes of death, like heart attacks or cancer or stroke.

Fact #8 : VITT Risk Low For Males In 50+ Age Group

In rare cases, Covishield / AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine can cause a special type of side effect cause Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT), also known as Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS).

People affected by VITT or 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 - like KK.

Fact #9 : VITT Has Different Symptoms Than Heart Attack

VITT / TTS also presents with different symptoms than a heart attack, like a severe headache, blurred vision, speech difficulties, drowsiness, seizures, nausea and vomiting, leg pain, easy bleeding, etc.

From what has been reported on KK during and after his concert, up to the point he collapsed in his hotel, it does not appear that he was suffering from VITT / TTS.

In any case, KK's autopsy will be able to definitely confirm if he had VITT / TTS, or a heart attack.

Read more : AstraZeneca Vaccine Blood Clots : What To Look For?

Fact #10 : 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 were not only safe, they were effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #11 : Vaccine Side Effects Generally Last Only A Few Days

COVID-19 vaccine side effects are generally mild, and last only a few days.

In rare cases, the recipient may suffer from blood clots (AstraZeneca) or myocarditis (Pfizer), but they develop within days of receiving the vaccine, not months later.

If KK received the COVID-19 vaccine, he would have received all his doses last year. It is quite impossible for KK's death to be related to any COVID-19 vaccine he may have received many months earlier.

Fact #12 : 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.

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

Pfizer Booster Dose For 5-11 Yo Kids : What You Must Know!

Here is what you need to know about the Pfizer COVID-19 booster dose for 5-11 year old kids!

 

Pfizer Booster Dose For 5-11 Yo Kids : What You Need To Know!

On 17 May 2022, the US FDA officially approved the emergency use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine as a booster dose for 5-11 year-old kids.

This Pfizer COVID-19 booster dose for kids is different from the COVID-19 booster dose for older children and adults in many ways, so let me summarise the key differences…

Lower Paediatric Dose

The dose of the Pfizer booster dose for 5-11 year old kids is only 10 micrograms (mcg). This is 1/3 of the dose used for adults and adolescents.

5-Month Dose Interval

The Pfizer paediatric COVID-19 booster dose for 5-11 year old kids is meant to be administered at least 5 months after the primary series is administered.

It does not mean your child must receive the booster dose exactly five months after completing the primary series. It just means the earliest your child should receive the booster dose is five months after receiving the primary series vaccine doses.

4th Dose For Some

For most children – the primary series consists of two doses, so the booster dose will be their third dose.

However, certain children are given three doses as their primary series vaccination :

  • who have undergone solid organ transplantation, or
  • who have been diagnosed with conditions that have an equivalent level of immunocompromise.

For these children, the booster dose will be their fourth dose of the vaccine.

10-Dose Vial

The booster dose for 5-11 years old kids uses the same Pfizer paediatric vaccine used in their primary series vaccination.

It is supplied in a 10-dose vial, with an orange cap and a label with an orange border, to differentiate from the higher-dose vaccine used for adults and adolescents.

Must Be Diluted Before Use

The content of the vial must be diluted with 1.3 ml of sterile 0.9% sodium chloride, to derive 10 doses of 0.2 ml in volume.

Healthcare workers must be aware of this dilution requirement, as the newer Pfizer vaccine with a gray cap (for individuals 12 years and older) no longer requires dilution.

Smaller Intramuscular Injection

The Pfizer booster dose for 5-11 year old kids is given as a 0.2 ml intramuscular injection. This is a smaller volume than the adult booster dose – 0.3 ml.

So parents should be aware that the paediatric booster dose has a lower volume, when observing their children’s vaccinations.

More Stable Formulation

The Pfizer’s paediatric vaccine, which is used for the booster dose, has an improved formulation that is more stable. For those who want to know what changed, Pfizer :

  • replaced the phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) with a Tris buffer
  • removed sodium chloride and potassium chloride from the buffer formulation

This improved formulation allows the vaccine to be kept in a normal refrigerator at 2°C to 8°C (35°F to 46°F) for up to 10 weeks, instead of just 4 weeks.

In addition, it will last longer – 12 hours, instead of just 2 hours – at room temperature (up to 25°C / 77°F), after being thawed.

9 Month Expiry Date

The Pfizer paediatric COVID-19 vaccine has a 9-month expiry date, from the printed manufacturing date.

03/2022 30 November 2022
04/2022 31 December 2022
05/2022 31 January 2023

Mild Side Effects

The US FDA authorised the booster dose based on safety data from approximately 400 children who received the booster dose 5-9 months after completing their two-dose primary series.

They noted that the commonly reported side effects were pain, redness and swelling at the injection site, as well as fatigue, headache, muscle or joint pain and chills and fever.

This should be no different from the original safety data, which showed that the lower dose produced fewer side effects, with no severe side effects noted. They were mostly :

  • pain at injection site : 71-74%
  • headache : 54-61%
  • fatigue : 60-66%
  • muscle pain : 27-41%
  • chills : 25-40%
  • joint pain : 13-22%
  • fever : 7-17%

Side note : It is interesting to note that even the placebo causes common symptoms like fatigue, headache and muscle pain. This shows just how important it is to conduct a randomised controlled trial.

Safer Than Adult Dose

The much lower dose appears to ameliorate, if not eliminate, the risk of myocarditis / pericarditis that was highest in adolescents and young adults.

There were no cases of pericarditis or myocarditis in the initial Pfizer study that involved over 2,260 children, through approximately 3 months of follow-up after Dose 2.

After 8.7 million doses were administered in the US (up to 19 December 2021), the US CDC noted that :

  • VAERS received 4,249 adverse event reports (0.049% of doses)
  • 4,149 (97.6%) of those adverse events were not serious
  • Of the remaining 100 serious adverse events, 29 were fever, 21 were vomiting, and 15 were increased troponin.
  • Only 11 verified cases of myocarditis were identified – 7 recovered completely, and 4 were recovering at the time of the report.

Based on those results, the risk of myocarditis was 1 in 791,000 doses – much lower than the risk of myocarditis in young adults (1 in 50,000).

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

Myocarditis Risk Per Million People Difference
COVID-19 Patient 450 +2208%
Pfizer Vaccine
(Adult Dose)
20 +2.6%
Pfizer Vaccine
(Paediatric Dose)
2.5 -87%
Normal Population 19.5 Baseline

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

 

Pfizer Booster Dose : Should Your 5-11 Yo Kids Get It?

While the US FDA did not reveal how much of a boost in antibody the Pfizer booster dose will give your 5-11 year old children, there is a definite boost in antibody level.

That said, antibody levels are not an accurate assessment of an individual’s immunity against COVID-19.

Studies have shown that additional vaccine doses induces the memory B cell and T cell responses to an actual COVID-19 infection.

While that may not prevent infection, especially by the highly-infectious Omicron variants, the improved B cell and T cell responses will greatly reduce the severity of any COVID-19 infection.

Therefore, I would definitely recommend giving your kids the Pfizer booster dose, if it is made available to them.

US FDA Approves Pfizer Booster Dose For 5-11 Yo Kids!

The US FDA just authorised the Pfizer booster dose for 5-11 year-old kids!

Here is what you need to know…

 

US FDA Approves Pfizer Booster Dose For 5-11 Yo Kids!

On 17 May 2022, the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) authorised the use of a single booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for 5-11 year old kids.

This booster dose is to be given at least 5 months after the primary series of two doses is given.

This follows the US FDA approval of a booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for 12-15 year old kids on 3 January 2022.

FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf, M.D. said :

While it has largely been the case that COVID-19 tends to be less severe in children than adults, the omicron wave has seen more kids getting sick with the disease and being hospitalized, and children may also experience longer term effects, even following initially mild disease.

The FDA is authorizing the use of a single booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for children 5 through 11 years of age to provide continued protection against COVID-19. Vaccination continues to be the most effective way to prevent COVID-19 and its severe consequences, and it is safe.

If your child is eligible for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine and has not yet received their primary series, getting them vaccinated can help protect them from the potentially severe consequences that can occur, such as hospitalization and death.

Read more : Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids : What You Need To Know!

 

Why US FDA Approved Pfizer Booster Dose For 5-11 Yo Kids

The US FDA approved the Pfizer booster dose for 5-11 year-old kids based on their analysis of the immune response data in a subset of children from the ongoing randomised placebo-controlled trial that supported the earlier October 2021 approval of the vaccine for this age group.

Increased Antibody Levels

The antibody response of 67 study participants who received the booster dose 7-9 months after completing their primary series vaccination, were evaluated, and found to increase antibody levels one month after receiving the booster dose.

Safety

The US FDA also assessed the safety of the booster dose in approximately 400 children who received the booster dose 5-9 months after completing their primary series vaccination.

The most commonly reported side effects were pain, redness and swelling at the injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle or joint pain, and chills and fever.

Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said :

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is effective in helping to prevent the most severe consequences of COVID-19 in individuals 5 years of age and older.

Since authorizing the vaccine for children down to 5 years of age in October 2021, emerging data suggest that vaccine effectiveness against COVID-19 wanes after the second dose of the vaccine in all authorized populations.

The FDA has determined that the known and potential benefits of a single booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for children 5 through 11 years of age at least five months after completing a primary series outweigh its known and potential risks and that a booster dose can help provide continued protection against COVID-19 in this and older age groups.

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!

Was Pfizer Forced To Release 9 Pages Of Vaccine Side Effects?!

Did the FDA lose a court case, and was forced to disclose 9 pages proving that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has 1,291 side effects?!

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

Updated @ 2022-04-20 : Added a new variant of the story, and corrected several minor mistakes.

Claim : Pfizer Was Forced To Release 9 Pages Of Vaccine Side Effects!

This warning from China has gone viral, claiming that the US FDA lost a court case and was forced to release Pfizer vaccine documents that would have been kept secret for 55 years!

And amongst those documents were 9 pages of evidence that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has 1,291 side effects!

It’s a long read, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…

Congratulations to those who have not been vaccinated!
Your persistence is absolutely wise and correct!

FDA loses case! Pfizer forced to disclose vaccine data! 9 pages of side effects! The whole network is stunned…

 

Truth : Pfizer Was NOT Forced To Release 9 Pages Of Vaccine Side Effects!

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

Fact #1 : FDA Did Not Lose Their Case

The FDA did not lose the case brought by PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) – the group requesting the data that the FDA used to licence the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

The PHMPT demanded that the FDA redact and release 329,000 pages of documents within 108 days, which would require them to process over 91,000 pages per month.

The FDA had been processing the documents at a rate of almost 5,000 pages per month, and had already released 7 of the 8 priority items by 31 January 2022.

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

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

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

Fact #2 : FDA Did Not Try To Suppress Pfizer Trial Data

This is a completely bogus claim, which I fact checked last year. The FDA did not ask to suppress data from the Pfizer mRNA vaccine trial.

That was the “interpretation” of Aaron Siri, the lawyer working for PHMPT. The truth is – the FDA was already releasing documents to PHMPT.

It not only released more than 12,000 pages of the requested 329,000 pages by end of January 2022, it was on track to deliver the remaining documents in about 5 years.

Fact #3 : There Is No Pfizer Report To Be Released In 2085

The fake story falsely claimed that Pfizer was forced to release a document that was “originally scheduled to be released in 2085”.

There is no such Pfizer report. Neither is Pfizer expected to produce a report for release in the year 2085.

Those documents belong to the FDA, and that is why it is the FDA that has to process, redact and release the documents, not Pfizer.

Fact #4 : Pfizer Document Was Released In November 2021

The Pfizer document that the fake story was referring to is “5.3.6 postmarketing experience.pdf“.

As the PHMPT itself noted, it was part of the first batch of five Pfizer documents released to its team on 17 November 2021.

It apparently took the PHMPT team more than 3 months to read through those 5 documents, and “discover” the 9 pages listing some 1,291 adverse events of special interest.

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

It took the PHMPT almost that long just to read 5 documents! At this rate, it will take its team some 16,450 years to read all 329,000 pages they demanded…

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

Fact #5 : Pfizer Document Did Not Reveal 1,291 Side Effects

The fake story falsely claimed that the first batch of Pfizer documents included 9 pages of side effects.

There are nine pages of potential “adverse events” listed in the “List of Adverse Events of Special Interest” (AESI).

However, that was NOT a list of side effects caused by the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

Rather, that was a list of 1,291 potential adverse events that Pfizer was specifically looking for in the reports of adverse events.

Think of it as a shopping list of adverse events that everyone agreed that Pfizer should be looking out for.

Even if these adverse events did occur, scientists still need to find out if they actually occurred because of the vaccine, or some other causes.

Fact #6 : Adverse Events Are Not Side Effects

I should now point out that adverse events are not side effects.

Adverse events are “unfavourable” or “unintended” events that happen after vaccination or taking a drug, like having an anaphylactic reaction or getting into a car accident.

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

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

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

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

Fact #7 : AESI List Not Specific To Pfizer Vaccine

The Adverse Events of Special Interest list is not specific to the Pfizer mRNA vaccine. It’s actually stated on Page 16 of the document.

The company’s AESI list takes into consideration the lists of AESIs from the following expert groups and regulatory authorities: Brighton Collaboration (SPEAC), ACCESS protocol, US CDC (preliminary list of AESI for VAERS surveillance), MHRA (unpublished guideline).

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

These AESIs are usually specified before clinical trials even begin, although new ones may be added later. Hence, a generic list is used.

Fact #8 : AESI List Includes Irrelevant Adverse Events

We know that this is a generic AESI list, because it includes diseases involving other viruses – Herpes, MERS, Varicella; as well as “exposure to SARS-CoV-2” and other “communicable disease”.

The list also includes manufacturing and lab test issues, like “Manufacturing laboratory analytical testing issue, Manufacturing materials issue, Manufacturing production issue“.

Even product supply issues were included – “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 : Pfizer Document Showed No New Safety Concerns

The fake story falsely claimed that the document showed that the Pfizer vaccine caused 1,200 deaths.

If you read the Discussion and Summary + Conclusion sections, you will see that the data :

  • did not reveal any “novel safety concerns or risks”
  • support “a favourable benefit risk profile” of the vaccine

In other words – the Pfizer document pointed out that despite looking for 1,291 potential dangers, they found no new risks from the vaccine.

Don’t risk your life or your family’s lives on the bad science and misinformation promoted by Chinese netizens, and anti-vaccination activists.

Sinovac / Sinopharm Recipients To Get Second Booster Dose!

Sinovac and Sinopharm recipients will be allowed to get a second booster dose!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Sinovac / Sinopharm Recipients To Get Second Booster Dose!

On 14 April 2022, the Malaysia Ministry of Health announced that they will offer a second booster dose to high-risk individuals, to improve their protection against COVID-19!

In addition, they will also offer recipients of the Sinovac or Sinopharm vaccines the opportunity to get a second booster dose.

The second booster dose will be the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine, and it will be given at least 1 month after the first booster dose for Sinovac / SInopharm recipients.

This second booster dose is optional, and is not compulsory. Your vaccination status will not change, whether you take the second booster dose or not.

However, it will facilitate overseas travel for Sinovac and Sinopharm recipients because many countries do not recognise either vaccines.

Read more : Second Booster Dose Offered To High-Risk Individuals!

 

Should Sinovac / Sinopharm Recipients Get Second Booster Dose?

If you are a Sinovac or Sinopharm recipient and need to travel overseas, you should definitely get the second booster dose.

Both vaccines have been EUA-qualified by the WHO. However, quite a number of countries do not recognise the Sinovac or Sinopharm vaccines, due to their lower efficacy.

The massive RECoVaM study, for example, showed that the Sinovac vaccine’s limited efficacy quickly waned after just 2 months. And that wasn’t even against the highly-contagious Omicron variant.

Even Sinovac recipients who receive a Pfizer booster dose may not obtain sufficient protection against the Omicron variant. A recent Yale University study showed that Sinovac vaccine recipients will require TWO Pfizer booster doses, to adequately protect against the Omicron variant.

So if you have the opportunity to get the second booster dose, take it. Even if the country you intend to visit recognises the Sinovac / Sinopharm vaccine, you will better protect yourself against COVID-19 by getting the second booster dose.

COVID-19 Booster Dose Offered To High-Risk Adolescents!

Malaysia will offer the COVID-19 booster dose to high-risk adolescents!

Here is what you need to know…

 

COVID-19 Booster Dose Offered To High-Risk Adolescents!

On 14 April 2022, the Malaysia Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced that high-risk adolescents will be offered the COVID-19 booster dose.

The COVID-19 booster dose will be made available to individuals 12 to 17 years old, who are moderately or severely immunocompromised :

  • Cancer patients
  • Organ transplant patients who undergo immunosuppressive therapy
  • Long-term haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis patients
  • Other conditions or illnesses that are categorised as moderate or severe immunocompromised

The COVID-19 booster dose that will be used is the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine, and it will be given at least 28 days after the second dose of the primary series vaccine.

This booster dose is optional, and is not compulsory. Your children’s vaccination status will not change, whether they take the booster dose or not.

Read more : Second Booster Dose Offered To High-Risk Individuals!

 

Why COVID-19 Booster Dose For High-Risk Adolescents?

While this booster dose is completely optional, I would highly recommend that those who qualify should take it.

Vaccines have reduced efficacy in immunocompromised individuals, because their immune system is less able to react to the antigens presented by the vaccine.

Therefore, immunocompromised individuals generally require an additional dose, just to obtain the same protection as people with normal immunity.

Immunocompromised adolescents would definitely have lower protection from the primary series COVID-19 vaccination, and should take this booster dose.
