Did Mandisa Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did American Idol star Mandisa just die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Mandisa Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Mandisa died suddenly at 47 years of age, some people immediately claimed or suggested the American Idol alumnus and Christian gospel singer was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Steve Kirsch : Mandisa, Grammy award-winning ‘American Idol’ alum, dead at 47. Died suddenly.

Covid vaccines are the #1 cause of sudden death according to statistics that I was able to gather on timing.

Oddly, nobody else is gathering these statistics. I wonder why?

No cause of death #diedsuddenly

No Evidence Mandisa Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

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

Fact #1 : Mandisa’s Cause Of Death Has Not Been Determined

Let me start by pointing out that Mandisa’s cause of death has not been determined. So it would be ludicrous for anyone to claim that she died from the COVID-19 vaccines.

On Thursday, 18 April 2024, Mandisa (born Mandisa Lynn Hundley on 2 October 1976) was found dead in her Nashville-area home.

Mandia’s representative, The Media Collective, issued a statement confirming her death, and stating that her cause of death is not yet known:

We can confirm that yesterday Mandisa was found in her home deceased. At this time we do not know the cause of death or any further details. We ask for your prayers for her family and close knit circle of friends during this incredibly difficult time.

To be clear – neither Mandisa’s representative nor her family knows her cause of death.

Fact #2 : Franklin Police Is Investigating Her Death

Max Winitz, a spokesperson for the Franklin Police Department. said that its officers are involved in an “active death investigation” on Friday, 19 April 2024 – a day after Mandisa was found dead.

While he declined to confirmed her identity, he said that the death was being “Actively investigated”:

What I can confirm is that our officers responded to a residence for a death investigation Thursday evening, and it’s being actively investigated.

Until and unless the police, the coroner or her family announces her cause of death, or releases her autopsy report, anyone who claims that Mandisa died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Mandisa Suffered From Depression

Although her cause of death has not been determined or revealed, suicide appears to be a possibility. Mandisa revealed in a 2017 interview with ABC News that she struggled with depression, and even contemplated suicide.

It got pretty bad — to the point where if I had not gotten off that road I would not be sitting here today.

I was this close to listening to that voice that told me, ‘You can be with Jesus right now, Mandisa. All you have to do is take your life.’

Now, that does not necessarily mean Mandisa committed suicide. She could easily have died from a cardiac arrest, a heart attack, a stroke – common medical episodes that have been killing people long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Again, we should wait for the police investigative report, and her official cause of death, and not make baseless claims on social media!

Fact #4 : Unknown If Mandisa Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Mandisa was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Mandisa was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless her family (or the authorities) reveal her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Mandisa was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

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

Even if Mandisa was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her doses more than two years ago! She cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination. Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

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

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

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

It took them a while, but Cureus finally retracted the controversial “peer-reviewed” article on the lessons learned about COVID-19 mRNA vaccines!

Take a look at the controversial article, and find out what Cureus decided to retract it!

 

Cureus Publishes Controversial COVID-19 Vaccines Paper!

Anti-vaccine activists have been excitedly sharing what they call a “peer-reviewed” paper on the lessons learned about COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, while calling for the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines to be removed.

The paper in question is called “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign” by Mead et. al. which includes anti-vaccine activists like Jessica Rose, Steve Kirsch, and Peter McCullough.

While it is being heralded as something new, the paper appears to be nothing more than a regurgitation of long-debunked claims about mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. Unfortunately, it received a patina of legitimacy when it was published in the journal Cureus, with anti-vaccine activists gleefully pointing out that it was a “peer-reviewed” paper.

What many people don’t realise is that Cureus uses “an unusually fast” peer-review process of just “a few days”, and relies heavily on “post-publication peer review”, as its Editor in Chief John R. Adler explained to Retraction Watch in 2015:

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

In other words – the pre-publication peer review appears to be superficial, and Cureus relies on the scientific community to peer-review the papers after publication. All that “post-publication” criticism appear to have resulted in its decision to (finally) retract this controversial article.

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

On 19 February 2024, one of the article’s co-authors – Steve Kirsch, revealed (archive) that Cureus has decided to retract the article, citing a number of concerns.

Dear authors, 

I hope this email finds you well. I write regarding your article recently published in Cureus entitled, ‘COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign’.

The list of concerns in the Cureus letter is frankly, too short. In my earlier article, I already listed a number of other concerns with the article:

  • unsubstantiated claims that the COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials were too short
  • unsubstantiated claims that mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 were not proven safe or effective
  • misleading emphasis on absolute risk (AR) versus relative risk (RR) in understanding vaccine efficacy
  • misleading emphasis on unverified adverse events that were reported after vaccination.
  • unsubstantiated claims that 74% of deaths were “judged to have been caused by the COVID-19 mRNA products”

In any case, Cureus officially retracted this “peer-reviewed” article on 26 February 2024, with this statement:

The Editors-in-Chief have retracted this article. Following publication, concerns were raised regarding a number of claims made in this article. Upon further review, the Editors-in-Chief found that the conclusions of this narrative review are considered to be unreliable due to the concerns with the validity of some of the cited references that support the conclusions and a misrepresentation of the cited references and available data.

The authors disagree with this retraction.

One can’t help but wonder if this incident might persuade Cureus to spend a wee bit more time and effort on its peer-review process… or better still, don’t allow such articles to be labelled as “peer-reviewed” until they have at least passed proper, legitimate peer-review.

Is Red Cross Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood?!

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

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

 

Claim : Red Cross May Be Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood!

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

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

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

 

Truth : Red Cross Is Not Rejecting COVID Vaccinated Blood!

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

Fact #1 : This Eligibility Requirement Isn’t New

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Red Cross Only Defers Some Blood Donations

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #6 : Red Cross Is Helping To Vaccinated People

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

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

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

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

Did a study just show that COVID-19 vaccines killed 14x more people than they saved?!

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

 

Claim : COVID Vaccines Kill 14X More People Than They Saved!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that a study just showed that COVID-19 vaccines killed 14x more people than they saved!

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

Peer-Reviewed Study Finds Covid Vaccines Killed 14x More People Than They Saved

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

 

Truth : COVID Vaccines Did Not Kill 14X More People Than They Saved!

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

Fact #1 : Study Did Not Show 14X More People Died From Vaccines

Let me just start by pointing out that the study, which is called “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign” by Mead et. al. (archive), did not show that the COVID vaccines killed 14X more people than they saved.

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

The People’s Voice article took great pains to point out that the paper was “peer-reviewed”, probably to suggest that it should be taken seriously. That’s not exactly accurate.

Even though this paper was marked as “peer-reviewed”, the peer review process at Cureus is “unusually fast” at just a few days. That’s because the journal Cureus relies on “post-publication peer review“, as its Editor in Chief John R. Adler explained to Retraction Watch in 2015:

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

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

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

Recommended : Pfizer Vaccine Causes Autism? Rats Are Not Mini Humans!

Fact #3 : Paper Regurgitates Long-Debunked Claims

The paper in question is a literature review, and was penned by notable anti-vaccine activists like Jessica Rose, Steve Kirsch, and Peter McCullough. You may note that some of the authors are not even scientists or were trained in medicine.

While it is being heralded as something new, the paper appears to be nothing more than a regurgitation of long-debunked claims about mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. It certainly offers no evidence to back up their claim for a vaccine moratorium. Let’s just take a look at a few:

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinical Trials Were Too Short?!

The paper claimed that no vaccine was permitted for market release without a testing period of at least four years, using the mumps vaccine by Merck as example. That’s not true.

The Mumpsvax (Jeryl Lynn strain) vaccine was developed and approved in a record four years, but its testing did not last four years. The mumps vaccine clinical trial in 1966 (abstract) only lasted 6 months.

This paper gives the results of a large field trial of the vaccine conducted among schoolchildren in North Carolina.

Vaccination was carried out in November 1966, every tenth child receiving a placebo preparation. Serum specimens were obtained at the time of vaccination and 4 weeks later from 556 children representing a cross-section of the total group of participants.

During the 180 days of post-vaccination surveillance, 56 cases of mumps were reported among the study population and 69 cases among non-participants.

There is no requirement by health authorities that testing or assessing any vaccine should last 10 years. The typical vaccine development time of 10-15 years is not a reflection of how much time a clinical trial needs to run, but rather the time it “generally” takes to create a vaccine, gather resources, get approvals, run clinical trials, process the data, file for approval, etc.

COVID-19 vaccines were so quickly developed because scientists all over the world collaborated on the effort, while governments funded their development, and fast-tracked their clinical trials and manufacturing preparations.

The speedy development of COVID-19 vaccines was also enabled by new vaccine platforms using mRNA or DNA technologies, in which genetic information from the new virus only needed to be “plugged in” to produce a new vaccine.

More importantly – the paper provided no evidence that the accelerated development of COVID-19 vaccines has actually resulted in unsafe vaccines.

Recommended : Do COVID-19 Vaccines Cause Long-Term Heart Damage?!

mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Were Not Proven Safe / Effective?

The Mead et. al. paper claimed or suggested that the clinical trials did not show that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were safe or effective because too few people in the unvaccinated (placebo) group died from COVID-19.

Well, not only is that a “misunderstanding” of the clinical trial results (see the next section), many studies have been conducted into the safety and efficacy of the mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 since they were deployed.

Those real world studies (example, example, example) consistently showed that the mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 are safe and effective.

Low Absolute Risk Shows No Need To Vaccinate?!

The Mead et. al. paper repeats the old trope that the low absolute risk (AR) seen in the mRNA vaccine clinical trials mean there is no need for anyone to get vaccinated. That’s simply not true, and is a (deliberate?) misunderstanding of statistical calculations.

The Absolute Risk Reduction (ARR) will “always appear low” because it depends very much on the “event rate”. As the Meedan Health Desk explained:

Let’s say a study enrolled 20,000 patients into the control group and 20,000 in the vaccine group. In that study, 200 people in the control group got sick and 0 people in the vaccine group got sick.

Even though the vaccine efficacy would be a whopping 100%, the ARR would show that vaccines reduce the absolute risk by just 1% (200/20,000= 1%).

For the ARR to increase to 20% in our example study with a vaccine with 100% efficacy, 4,000 of the 20,000 people in the control group would have to get sick (4,000/20,000= 20%).

Hence, the Relative Risk Reduction (RRR) is used instead to determine a vaccine’s efficacy, because it tells us how much risk is reduced in the vaccinated group, compared to the unvaccinated control group.

To be clear – the clinical trials and post-vaccination monitoring and studies have clearly shown that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are effective in preventing severe disease and deaths from COVID-19.

Recommended : Did Norway Study Show mRNA Vaccine Danger In Children?!

mRNA Vaccines Do Not Prevent Transmission?!

The Mead et. al. paper claimed that the CDC said that “COVID-19 products would stop transmission”, but in the end “COVID-19 mRNA products do not prevent transmission or infection”. Well, that’s not really true.

For one thing – the CDC never said that COVID-19 vaccines would stop transmission. In fact, the CDC article the paper linked to only said that the vaccines appear to reduce (not stop) transmission:

… a growing body of evidence suggests that COVID-19 vaccines also reduce asymptomatic infection and transmission.

To be clear – the COVID-19 vaccines were primarily designed to reduce or prevent severe disease and death, which is why transmission for not an endpoint for their clinical trials. It would have been a nice bonus to block transmission completely, but partially reducing transmission is not too bad.

mRNA Vaccines Have A Lot Of AESIs?!

The Mead et. al. paper warns us about the many Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) reported after COVID-19 vaccinations. The problem is – those AESI are not actual vaccine side effects!

The AESI list for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for example has 9 pages of 1,291 adverse events, but that is not a list of the mRNA vaccine side effects. It is a list of “adverse events” that Pfizer must look for during the post-vaccination monitoring period. Not only are these “adverse events” not specific to the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, they include:

  • diseases like Herpes, MERS, Varicella, and other “communicable disease”,
  • exposure to SARS-CoV-2,
  • manufacturing and lab test issues, and even…
  • product availability and supply issues!

Needless to say – those adverse events are not vaccine side effects, or are any indication of vaccine performance or safety in any way.

Recommended : Do COVID-19 Vaccines Increase Risk Of Long COVID?!

Lots Of Deaths + Hospitalisation Were Reported?!

The Mead et. al. paper also claimed that two large drug safety reporting systems in the US and Europe have over 7.8 million reports of adverse events, with “death, hospitalisations, and life-threatening reactions”. It is probably referring to VAERS and EudraVigilance.

The thing is – VAERS / Yellow Card / EudraVigilance data are all unverified, and may contain duplicated information. That’s why they are all prefaced with warnings like:

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

In addition, open systems like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, are very susceptible to abuse because they allow anyone from anywhere to post anything they want, without evidence or verification.

Anti-vaccination activists can, for example, key in unlimited numbers of adverse reaction reports, even if they never received a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Autopsy Reports Show Deaths Caused By Vaccines?!

The Mead et. al. paper claimed that “autopsy studies” showed that 74% of deaths were “judged to have been caused by the COVID-19 mRNA products”.

The problem is – the study it referred to was a preprint by one of its own authors – Peter McCullough, that was removed by The Lancet for violating its “screening criteria”.

This preprint has been removed by Preprints with The Lancet because the study’s conclusions are not supported by the study methodology. Preprints with The Lancet reserves the right to remove a paper that has been posted if we determine that it has violated our screening criteria.

Not only was that study just a “review” of autopsy reports, many of the cases had other far more likely causes of death.

Recommended : Did mRNA Vaccines Trigger Severe Nerve Damage?!

mRNA Vaccines Are Contaminated By DNA?!

The paper suggested that the mRNA vaccines are contaminated with DNA “orders of magnitude higher than the EMA’s limit”.

The truth is – residual DNA is found in all biological products manufactured using cells, and has not shown any health risk after being studied for many decades.

In any case, the amount of residual DNA in mRNA vaccines were found to be far below regulatory limits.

Pfizer Vaccine Has DNA From SV40 Virus That Causes Cancer?!

The paper also warned about the Simian Virus 40 (SV40) promoter found in samples of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine. Why? Because it warns – the SV40 virus “induces lymphomas, brain tumors, and other malignancies in laboratory animals”.

First of all – after decades of studies, there is still no conclusive evidence that the SV40 virus can cause cancers in humans. However, out of an abundance of caution, the SV40 virus is considered to potentially cause cancer in humans.

In any case, the SV40 promoter is a DNA sequence that is often used to manufacture mRNA, and is not dangerous. It certainly poses no cancer risk, because the part of the SV40 that can potentially cause cancer – the T-antigen, is not present in the SV40 promoter, or the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

Did Scientists Call For Global mRNA Vaccine Moratorium?!

Did scientists call for a global moratorium on the mRNA vaccine, after finding high rates of serious post-injection injuries?!

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

 

Claim : Scientists Call For mRNA Vaccine Moratorium!

The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) activist group, which is chaired by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., just posted an article claiming that scientists have called for a global moratorium on the mRNA vaccine, after finding high rates of serious post-injection injuries!

Here is an excerpt from the CHD article (archive) with my emphasis in bold.

Scientists Call for Global Moratorium on mRNA Vaccines, Immediate Removal From Childhood Schedule

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

 

Scientists Call For mRNA Vaccine Moratorium : My Fact Check

The CHD story appears to suggest that scientists are calling for a global moratorium on the mRNA vaccine because it’s dangerous. However, it’s really more like the same bunch of anti-vaccine activists repeating long-debunked claims about the mRNA vaccine, and calling (yet again) for a moratorium.

Here are the reasons why the vast majority of scientists and health authorities are ignoring them, and why you too should ignore their repeated calls for an mRNA vaccine moratorium:

Fact #1 : Cureus Relies On Post-Publication Peer Review

The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) article repeatedly points out that the paper was “peer-reviewed”, probably to suggest that it should be taken seriously. That’s not exactly accurate.

Even though this paper was marked as “peer-reviewed”, the peer review process at Cureus is “unusually fast” at just a few days. That’s because the journal Cureus relies on “post-publication peer review“, as its Editor in Chief John R. Adler explained to Retraction Watch in 2015:

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

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

Fact #2 : It Regurgitates Long-Debunked Claims

The paper in question is a literature review called “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign” by Mead et. al. (archive), which includes anti-vaccine activists like Jessica Rose, Steve Kirsch, and Peter McCullough.

While it is being heralded as something new, the paper appears to be nothing more than a regurgitation of long-debunked claims about mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. It certainly offers no evidence to back up their claim for a vaccine moratorium. Let’s just take a look at a few:

mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Were Not Proven Safe / Effective?

The Mead et. al. paper claimed or suggested that the clinical trials did not show that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were safe or effective because too few people in the unvaccinated (placebo) group died from COVID-19.

Well, not only is that a “misunderstanding” of the clinical trial results (see the next section), many studies have been conducted into the safety and efficacy of the mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 since they were deployed.

Those real world studies (example, example, example) consistently showed that the mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 are safe and effective.

Low Absolute Risk Shows No Need To Vaccinate?!

The Mead et. al. paper repeats the old trope that the low absolute risk (AR) seen in the mRNA vaccine clinical trials mean there is no need for anyone to get vaccinated. That’s simply not true, and is a (deliberate?) misunderstanding of statistical calculations.

The Absolute Risk Reduction (ARR) will “always appear low” because it depends very much on the “event rate”. As the Meedan Health Desk explained:

Let’s say a study enrolled 20,000 patients into the control group and 20,000 in the vaccine group. In that study, 200 people in the control group got sick and 0 people in the vaccine group got sick.

Even though the vaccine efficacy would be a whopping 100%, the ARR would show that vaccines reduce the absolute risk by just 1% (200/20,000= 1%).

For the ARR to increase to 20% in our example study with a vaccine with 100% efficacy, 4,000 of the 20,000 people in the control group would have to get sick (4,000/20,000= 20%).

Hence, the Relative Risk Reduction (RRR) is used instead to determine a vaccine’s efficacy, because it tells us how much risk is reduced in the vaccinated group, compared to the unvaccinated control group.

To be clear – the clinical trials and post-vaccination monitoring and studies have clearly shown that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are effective in preventing severe disease and deaths from COVID-19.

mRNA Vaccines Do Not Prevent Transmission?!

The Mead et. al. paper claimed that the CDC said that “COVID-19 products would stop transmission”, but in the end “COVID-19 mRNA products do not prevent transmission or infection”. Well, that’s not really true.

For one thing – the CDC never said that COVID-19 vaccines would stop transmission. In fact, the CDC article the paper linked to only said that the vaccines appear to reduce (not stop) transmission:

… a growing body of evidence suggests that COVID-19 vaccines also reduce asymptomatic infection and transmission.

To be clear – the COVID-19 vaccines were primarily designed to reduce or prevent severe disease and death, which is why transmission for not an endpoint for their clinical trials. It would have been a nice bonus to block transmission completely, but partially reducing transmission is not too bad.

mRNA Vaccines Have A Lot Of AESIs?!

The Mead et. al. paper warns us about the many Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) reported after COVID-19 vaccinations. The problem is – those AESI are not actual vaccine side effects!

The AESI list for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for example has 9 pages of 1,291 adverse events, but that is not a list of the mRNA vaccine side effects. It is a list of “adverse events” that Pfizer must look for during the post-vaccination monitoring period. Not only are these “adverse events” not specific to the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, they include:

  • diseases like Herpes, MERS, Varicella, and other “communicable disease”,
  • exposure to SARS-CoV-2,
  • manufacturing and lab test issues, and even…
  • product availability and supply issues!

Needless to say – those adverse events are not vaccine side effects, or are any indication of vaccine performance or safety in any way.

Recommended : Do COVID-19 Vaccines Increase Risk Of Long COVID?!

Lots Of Deaths + Hospitalisation Were Reported?!

The Mead et. al. paper also claimed that two large drug safety reporting systems in the US and Europe have over 7.8 million reports of adverse events, with “death, hospitalisations, and life-threatening reactions”. It is probably referring to VAERS and EudraVigilance.

The thing is – VAERS / Yellow Card / EudraVigilance data are all unverified, and may contain duplicated information. That’s why they are all prefaced with warnings like:

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

In addition, open systems like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, are very susceptible to abuse because they allow anyone from anywhere to post anything they want, without evidence or verification.

Anti-vaccination activists can, for example, key in unlimited numbers of adverse reaction reports, even if they never received a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Autopsy Reports Show Deaths Caused By Vaccines?!

The Mead et. al. paper claimed that “autopsy studies” showed that 74% of deaths were “judged to have been caused by the COVID-19 mRNA products”.

The problem is – the study it referred to was a preprint by one of its own authors – Peter McCullough, that was removed by The Lancet for violating its “screening criteria”.

This preprint has been removed by Preprints with The Lancet because the study’s conclusions are not supported by the study methodology. Preprints with The Lancet reserves the right to remove a paper that has been posted if we determine that it has violated our screening criteria.

Not only was that study just a “review” of autopsy reports, many of the cases had other far more likely causes of death.

Recommended : Did mRNA Vaccines Trigger Severe Nerve Damage?!

mRNA Vaccines Are Contaminated By DNA?!

The paper suggested that the mRNA vaccines are contaminated with DNA “orders of magnitude higher than the EMA’s limit”.

The truth is – residual DNA is found in all biological products manufactured using cells, and has not shown any health risk after being studied for many decades.

In any case, the amount of residual DNA in mRNA vaccines were found to be far below regulatory limits.

Pfizer Vaccine Has DNA From SV40 Virus That Causes Cancer?!

The paper also warned about the Simian Virus 40 (SV40) promoter found in samples of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine. Why? Because it warns – the SV40 virus “induces lymphomas, brain tumors, and other malignancies in laboratory animals”.

First of all – after decades of studies, there is still no conclusive evidence that the SV40 virus can cause cancers in humans. However, out of an abundance of caution, the SV40 virus is considered to potentially cause cancer in humans.

In any case, the SV40 promoter is a DNA sequence that is often used to manufacture mRNA, and is not dangerous. It certainly poses no cancer risk, because the part of the SV40 that can potentially cause cancer – the T-antigen, is not present in the SV40 promoter, or the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines Lessons Learned Fact Check!

Let’s take a look at the recent “peer-reviewed” study on the lessons learned about COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, and find out what the facts really are!

 

COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned??

Some people are excitedly sharing a “peer-reviewed” study on the lessons learned about COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, while calling for the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines to be removed.

Mary Talley Bowden MD : Peer-reviewed article published in @CureusInc : COVID shots must be pulled off the market. If you are a physician or politician, now is the time to be on the right side of history.

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

 

COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines Lessons Learned : My Fact Check

Let’s go through the “peer-reviewed” study on the lessons learned about COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, and see what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Cureus Relies On Post-Publication Peer Review

Let me start by pointing out that the journal Cureus relies on “post-publication peer review”.  Even though this paper was marked as “peer-reviewed”, it was an “unusually fast” peer review.

Cureus uses “an unusually fast” peer-review process of just “a few days”, and relies heavily on “post-publication peer review”, as its Editor in Chief John R. Adler explained to Retraction Watch in 2015:

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

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

Fact #2 : It Regurgitates Long-Debunked Claims

The paper in question is called “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign” by Mead et. al. which includes anti-vaccine activists like Jessica Rose, Steve Kirsch, and Peter McCullough.

While it is being heralded as something new, the paper appears to be nothing more than a regurgitation of long-debunked claims about mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. Let’s just take a look at a few:

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinical Trials Were Too Short?!

The paper claimed that no vaccine was permitted for market release without a testing period of at least four years, using the mumps vaccine by Merck as example. That’s not true.

The Mumpsvax (Jeryl Lynn strain) vaccine was developed and approved in a record four years, but its testing did not last four years. The mumps vaccine clinical trial in 1966 (abstract) only lasted 6 months.

This paper gives the results of a large field trial of the vaccine conducted among schoolchildren in North Carolina.

Vaccination was carried out in November 1966, every tenth child receiving a placebo preparation. Serum specimens were obtained at the time of vaccination and 4 weeks later from 556 children representing a cross-section of the total group of participants.

During the 180 days of post-vaccination surveillance, 56 cases of mumps were reported among the study population and 69 cases among non-participants.

There is no requirement by health authorities that testing or assessing any vaccine should last 10 years. The typical vaccine development time of 10-15 years is not a reflection of how much time a clinical trial needs to run, but rather the time it “generally” takes to create a vaccine, gather resources, get approvals, run clinical trials, process the data, file for approval, etc.

COVID-19 vaccines were so quickly developed because scientists all over the world collaborated on the effort, while governments funded their development, and fast-tracked their clinical trials and manufacturing preparations.

The speedy development of COVID-19 vaccines was also enabled by new vaccine platforms using mRNA or DNA technologies, in which genetic information from the new virus only needed to be “plugged in” to produce a new vaccine.

More importantly – the paper provided no evidence that the accelerated development of COVID-19 vaccines has actually resulted in unsafe vaccines.

Is Australia Opportunistically Vaccinating People Under Sedation?!

Is Australia opportunistically vaccinating people under sedation?!

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

 

Claim : Australia Is Opportunistically Vaccinating People Under Sedation!

People are sharing an ATAGI advisory, while claiming or suggesting that Australia is opportunistically vaccinating people under sedation!

Died Suddenly : Australian Government puts out a chilling notice advising health officials to “opportunistically” administer vaccines to patients who are under sedation or anesthesia. This is horrifying.

Recommended : Did Australian Study Show Spike In Vaccine Excess Deaths?!

 

Truth : Australia Requires Consent For Vaccinating People Under Sedation!

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

Fact #1 : ATAGI Sedation Advice Is From April 2022

Let me start by pointing out that the ATAGI (Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation) advice on the use of sedation for COVID-19 vaccination is not new.

It was actually published on 6 April 2022, as stated in the PDF document, which has not been changed since.

Therefore, it is curious to see so many people posting the ATAGI advice as if it’s new. It’s more than 20 months old!

Fact #2 : Some People Require Sedation For Anxiety

If you read the ATAGI document (PDF), you will see that it was mainly about how healthcare professionals can safely administer the COVID-19 vaccine to people with:

  • anxiety disorders,
  • needle-phobia, or
  • behavioural disorders

For such people, it may be safer to place them under sedation to allow the safe administration of the COVID-19 vaccine. Even so, ATAGI recommends using other techniques before resorting to sedation:

  • a low-sensory stimulation environment,
  • presence of comforting person or object,
  • distraction with music, video, or toys,
  • relaxation techniques, and
  • cognitive behaviour therapy.

In short – the ATAGI is recommending sedation only as a last resort.

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Fact #3 : Informed Consent Is Always Required

When ATAGI said that vaccines “may also be administered opportunistically while patients are undergoing sedation for unrelated procedures“, it does not mean without their consent.

The ATAGI advice clearly states that whether sedation is used or not, informed consent must be obtained from the patient (or legal guardian), before each dose can be administered.

Informed consent must be obtained prior to each dose from the patient themselves, or, where the patient
does not have capacity to give consent, from the parent, guardian or substitute decision-maker.

Fact #4 : Sedation Not Used To Force Vaccination

Claims or suggestions that Australia is opportunistically vaccinating people while they are sedated based on the ATAGI advice is easily proven false.

For one thing – they do not actually offer any evidence that the Australian government is asking healthcare professionals to vaccinate people against COVID-19, without consent, and under sedation.

More importantly, the ATAGI advice clearly states that sedation should not be used to force people to get vaccinated against COVID-19:

Sedation should not be used as a measure to enforce compliance with vaccination requirements.

Recommended : Are COVID-10 Vaccines Still One Giant Experiment?!

Fact #5 : Opportunistic Vaccination Only During Elective Procedures

What ATAGI mean when it said that vaccines “may also be administered opportunistically while patients are undergoing sedation for unrelated procedures” was that healthcare professionals can offer patients who are undergoing elective procedures the option of getting vaccinated against COVID-19 while under sedation.

The ATAGI strongly encourages this option as it can help avoid the need for a separate episode of sedation. In other words – a patient who suffers from anxiety can opt to get vaccinated against COVID-19 while being sedated for a mole removal, instead of undergoing a separate sedation for the vaccine.

However, this option does not apply to everyone undergoing some kind of medical procedure. The ATAGI advice clearly states that “opportunistic vaccination should only be considered for elective procedures where the patient is not acutely unwell“.

Fact #6 : Sedation Does Not Mean Loss Of Consciousness

The ATAGI also pointed out that placing people under sedation does not mean that they actually lose consciousness. It depends on the type and level of sedation used:

  • anxiolysis involves administering a medication to reduce anxiety alone, where the patient is still able to respond verbally
  • conscious sedation involves depression of consciousness, during which patients can still respond purposely to verbal commands or tactile stimulation and do not require any breathing support
  • deeper sedation involves loss of consciousness, during which patients require breathing support

As you can surmise, placing people under deep sedation requires considerable resources, and is impractical to conduct mass vaccinations, even if a nefarious government wants to forcibly vaccinate its population.

Did Valerie Plante Collapse On TV From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did Montreal mayor Valerie Plante suddenly collapse from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect, during a televised press conference?!

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

 

Claim : Valerie Plante Collapsed From COVID-19 Vaccine!

People are sharing photos or videos of Valerie Plante suddenly collapsing during a televised press conference, claiming or suggesting that the Mayor of Montreal just suffered a COVID-19 vaccine side effect!

DiedSuddenly : You can be sure that when world leaders publicly get their Covid vaccines and boosters that it’s just a placebo and theatrics to convince YOU to take the real thing.

Because when it’s not….this is what happens. They stopped making this mistake long ago.

Recommended : Did Iceland Ban COVID Vaccines After Sudden Deaths?!

 

Truth : Valerie Plante Collapsed From COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp, Telegram, and X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Valerie Plante Did Not Collapse

Let me start by pointing out that Montreal mayor Valerie Plante did not actually “collapse” suddenly.

Valerie Plante was answering a question about homelessness in the city at the press conference on Tuesday, 5 November 2023, when she suddenly stopped speaking.

She closed her eyes for several seconds, and appeared to swallow, before she slowly sat herself down on the floor. She remained conscious throughout the incident.

After she sat down on the floor, two of her staff rushed to her side to check on her, while another staff member asked reporters to stop filming.

Fact #2 : Valerie Plante Was Not Hospitalised

According to her press attache, Catherine Cadotte, an ambulance was called to the City Hall, where paramedics examined her. However, she was not taken to the hospital, because she was feeling better.

As a precautionary measure, Cadotte said that the mayor skipped the Ville-Marie borough council meeting that day, and will reduce her activities for a few days.

She will gradually resume her activities and thanks everyone for their understanding and support.

Her staff posted an update on her condition on her official X (formerly Twitter) account. Here is the English translation

The mayor of Montreal suffered discomfort during a press conference and, fortunately, she is out of danger. She will receive all the required medical support and thanks you for your support.

Recommended : Do COVID-19 Vaccines Cause Long-Term Heart Damage?!

Fact #3 : Valerie Plante Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Like most Canadians, Valerie Plante was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19. She confirmed in December 2021 that she was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19.

She was also a vocal advocate for COVID-19 vaccines, publicly receiving three vaccine injections on camera to demonstrate their safety.

Fact #4 : No Evidence COVID-19 Vaccine Was Involved

Valerie Plante’s press attache, Catherine Cadotte, stated that her medical emergency was “absolutely” not caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

In addition, Valerie Plante appeared to have received her COVID-19 vaccines in 2021, and a booster dose in January 2022. She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many months later.

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

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

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

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

Recommended : Died Suddenly Movie : More Vaccine Lies Exposed!

Fact #5 : People Have Collapsed Long Before COVID-19 Vaccines!

While anti-vaccine activists often claim that such collapses have never, or rarely, happened, before the COVID-19 vaccines were introduced, that’s really not true.

People have been collapsing for all sorts of reasons – hypotension, hypoglycaemia, vasovagal syncope, prolonged standing, dehydration, seizures, etc.

In fact, the infamous Died Suddenly movie actually showcased people who collapsed even though they were not vaccinated against COVID-19!

  • Florida Gators star, Keynote Johnson, who collapsed during a basketball game
  • Austrian journalist, Rosa Lyon, who collapsed on TV three months before COVID-19 was discovered!

Fact #6 : Many Deaths + Collapses Had Nothing To Do With Vaccines!

In addition, many people whose collapses and deaths were blamed on the COVID-19 vaccine were actually unvaccinated.

  • Footballer Christian Eriksen was unvaccinated when he collapsed during a game
  • Ohio Republican rep Kris Jordan died suddenly even though he was unvaccinated, and anti-vaccine.
  • Celebrity Aaron Carter was unvaccinated when he suddenly died in his bathtub.
  • Actress Kirstie Alley whose death was blamed on “turbo cancer” was unvaccinated.
  • MMA fighter Stephan Bonnar whose sudden death was blamed on vaccines, was unvaccinated and died from a drug overdose.
  • Canadian musician Shane Macaulay is unvaccinated and anti-vaccine, but had his viral seizure blamed on COVID-19 vaccines!

There are other examples, but you get the drift – it’s best not to blame the COVID-19 vaccine for every single collapse, injury, or death.

The truth is – tens of billions of COVID-19 vaccine doses have already been administered worldwide, and they have proven to be safe and effective for the vast majority of people who took them.

To raise funds, the U.K. Parliament has allowed companies and individuals to rent certain rooms for private events since January 2014. The session on COVID-19 vaccines was held in the Wilson Room, in Portcullis House, which is part of the Parliamentary estate, but not part of the Houses of Parliament.

On top of that, the meeting / event/ address / debate was short – lasting just 2 hours, from 5 PM to 7 PM.

To be clear – it was not an official UK Parliament event. It was just a private event held in a small, rented room in Portcullis House. On top of that, they were not even allowed to livestream or record the event!

In short – the speakers at that event were only “testifying” to the few attendees in the room, not to the U.K. Parliament… unless it was by telepathy?

Fact #2 : It Was A Small Private Event

Even though the private COVID-19 vaccines event was hosted by UK MP Andrew Bridgen, it appeared that he had trouble getting his fellow MPs to attend. In fact, Andrew Bridgen had to ask the public to write to their MPs to ask (beg?) them to attend that meeting!

The choice of The Wilson Room also suggests that Andrew Bridgen did not expect many to attend. The Wilson Room appears to be a small meeting room, with a maximum capacity of 12-16 delegates, with sitting room for another 30 or so people.

Although Steve Kirsch claimed that some 12-16 MPs, other people said that the MPs only popped in for a few minutes. For example, MP Desmond Swayne left “disapprovingly” after the first 5 minutes, and just two minutes into David Martin’s presentation.

For context, the United Kingdom has 650 Members of Parliament in the House of Commons, and 784 members in the House of Lords.

This appears to be a much smaller, UK version of the International COVID Summit III, which claimed to be an official EU Parliament event (it was not).

Fact #3 : Most UK MPs Did Not Attend

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, for one, not only declined to attend, he pointed out (archive) that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.

Firstly, whilst I am unable to attend the debate, the arrival of safe, effective and medically approved vaccines brought about a dramatic shift in our fight against Covid-19, not only in the UK but across the globe. I am incredibly proud of the strong role the UK played internationally in producing a viable vaccine, and also the incredible speed at which the NHS rolled it out domestically.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) followed rigorous procedures to ensure the vaccines met the necessary high standards in safety and efficacy.

The MHRA is one of the most respected regulators in the world and the World Health Organisation not only backed its approach, but also commended its work.

As I have alluded to previously, any Covid-19 vaccine that is approved must go through rigorous clinical trials and safety checks. Millions of people have been given a Covid-19 vaccine and reports of serious side effects, such as allergic reactions, have been very rare.

Data has shown that the vast majority of reported side effects are mild and in line with most types of vaccine, including the seasonal flu vaccine. The MHRA continues to monitor potential side effects of all vaccines in the UK. Routine safety monitoring and analysis of the approved Covid-19 vaccines by the MHRA shows that the safety of these vaccines remains as high as expected from the clinical trial data that supported the approvals.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.

Cat Smith, the Member of Parliament for Lancaster and Fleetwood, also declined to attend, noting that the overwhelming evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe, and MPs would be legitimising the debate by participating:

Thank you for your emails regarding excess deaths and next week’s debate in Parliament.

The overwhelming evidence demonstrates that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe for the overwhelming majority so no I will not be legitimising this debate by participating in it.

Recommended : Did David Martin Testify To UK Parliament On COVID-19?!

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

Regardless of what the 7 “experts or top doctors” may have said during that short 2-hour private meeting in The Wilson Room of the Portcullis House, they cannot refute the overwhelming evidence that COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be safe and effective for the vast majority of people who took them.

Tens of billions of doses have already been administered over the past 3 years, and verified cases of serious side effects and deaths have been few and far in between. In fact, the risk of developing myocarditis after a COVID-19 infection, for example, was shown to be hundreds of times higher than with multiple doses of the vaccines.

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

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

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

Did Iceland Ban COVID Vaccines After Sudden Deaths?!

Did Iceland just ban all COVID-19 vaccines after experiencing a spike in sudden deaths?!

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

 

Claim : Iceland Banned COVID Vaccines After Sudden Deaths!

People are sharing an article by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), suggesting or claiming that Iceland is no longer offering COVID-19 vaccines to its general population after a spike in sudden deaths!

Steve Kirsch : Iceland No Longer Offers Covid Vaccines To General Population After Spike In Sudden Deaths – The People’s Voice

Here is an excerpt from the article (archive). Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Iceland No Longer Offers Covid Vaccines To General Population After Spike In Sudden Deaths – The People’s Voice

Recommended : Are mRNA Vaccines Contaminated With SV40 DNA?!

 

Truth : Iceland Did Not Ban COVID-19 Vaccines!

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

Fact #1 : Iceland Has Not Banned COVID-19 Vaccines

Let me just start by pointing out that Iceland did not ban COVID-19 vaccines. Anyone who even takes 5 seconds to check would have discovered this.

For one thing – the website of Iceland’s Directorate of Health did not announce any ban of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Articles claiming that the decision to ban the COVID-19 vaccines was published by the Icelandic newspaper Morgunbladid also did not provide an actual link to the announcement. In fact, Morgunbladid actually posted on 3 October 2023 (English translation) that Iceland just started its COVID-19 vaccination campaign for the winter season!

Fact #2 : Iceland Refuted Claims It Banned COVID-19 Vaccines

On 29 November 2023, the Chief Epidemiologist at the Icelandic Directorate of Health, Guðrún Aspelund, refuted claims that Iceland banned COVID-19 vaccines.

She also dismissed claims that there was a spike in sudden deaths in Iceland, and explained that Iceland was now recommending the COVID-19 vaccines to high-risk groups, instead of vaccinating the entire population.

Iceland has not banned COVID-19 vaccines, and there are no soaring sudden deaths either.

COVID-19 vaccinations are being administered and recommended to certain high-risk groups, but with no immediate plans to vaccinate the entire population.

Aspelund explained that Iceland is recommending the COVID-19 vaccine this fall and winter season for:

  • people older than 60 years,
  • people older than 5 with underlying conditions, and
  • healthcare workers.

She also stated that even though Iceland has scaled back vaccine purchases to minimise waste, there will be enough vaccines if more people want to get vaccinated:

There is no shortage, and if additional groups require vaccination, it is feasible.

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Bill Gates For Murder?!

Fact #3 : Iceland Started New COVID-19 Vaccinations In October 2023!

On 2 October 2023, the Icelandic Directorate of Health announced that the updated Pfizer COMINARTY XBB 1.5 vaccine for COVID-19 was available for the winter season of 2023-2024. It also recommended that these groups should receive priority for this new COVID-19 vaccine:

  • All persons 60 years of age or older.

  • All children and adults with chronic heart, lung, kidney, and liver disease, obesity, diabetes, malignancy, or immunosuppressive disease caused by drugs or disease.

  • Pregnant women.

  • Healthcare professionals who care for individuals in the risk groups listed above.

It also pointed out that the new COVID-19 vaccines will be made free of charge for the high-risk groups above, and that their vaccinations will be carried out in healthcare centres, nursing homes, hospitals and certain pharmacies in the capital area.

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

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

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

Did Brooke Shields Collapse From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Was Brooke Shields rushed to the hospital, after collapsing suddenly from a COVID-19 vaccine seizure?!

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

 

Claim : Brooke Shields Collapsed From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Brooke Shields collapsed suddenly and was rushed to the hospital, anti-vaccine proponents immediately claimed or suggested that the actress suffered a seizure caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Steve Kirsch : Brooke Shields Rushed To Hospital After ‘Frothing At The Mouth’ welcome to the new normal. Oddly, this is pretty much only happening to vaccinated people. I wonder why?

Vaccine Deaths-SADS : Brooke Shields Rushed To Hospital After ‘Frothing At The Mouth’ #NewsBreak She has been having seizures after the jab. Hope you survive, so you can get more.

Sacred Habitats : Looks like Brooke Shields took the COVID vaccines and she’s paying for it right now.

People, y’all have got to wake up.

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

 

Truth : Brooke Shields Did Not Collapse From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now 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-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Brooke Shields Had A Grand Mal Seizure

On Wednesday, 1 November 2023, Brooke Shields (born Brooke Christa Shields on 31 May 1965) revealed in a Glamour interview that she suffered a scary medical emergency several weeks earlier in September.

The actress recounted how she was waiting for a table at the L’Artusi restaurant in New York City, when she suffered a seizure.

Two women came up to me; I don’t know them. Everything starts to go black. Then my hands drop to my side and I go headfirst into the wall.

Brooke Shields explained that she suffered a “full blown grand mal seizure“, which is also known as a tonic-clonic seizure. She did not suffer any COVID-19 vaccine injury.

I start having a grand mal seizure… Frothing at the mouth, totally blue, trying to swallow my tongue.

Fact #2 : Bradley Cooper Accompanied Her To The Hospital

The next thing Brooke Shields remembered was being loaded onto an ambulance, and given oxygen, and realising that “Bradley fucking Cooper is sitting next to me, holding my hand“.

I thought to myself, This is what death must be like. You wake up and Bradley Cooper’s going, ‘I’m going to go to the hospital with you, Brooke,’ and he’s holding my hand.

I’m looking at Bradley Cooper’s hand in my hand, and I’m like, ‘This is odd and surreal.’

Bradley Cooper happened to be near the restaurant when Brooke Shields suffered her seizure, and accompanied her to the hospital after the restaurant failed to get hold of her husband, Chris Henchy.

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Facing Life Behind Bars For Child Rape?!

Fact #3 : Brooke Shields Attributed Seizure To Water Toxicity

It is unknown if Brooke Shields suffers from epilepsy. But she explained that she had been drinking “so much water” that day, that the seizure was triggered by low sodium.

I flooded my system and I drowned myself. And if you don’t have enough sodium in your blood or urine or your body, you can have a seizure.

So as a 58-year-old woman, I’m not limiting my salt, OK? Stop trying to make me a crazy actress or a female that doesn’t know what the fucking they’re doing.

I was drinking too much water because I felt dehydrated because I was singing more than I’ve ever sung in my life and doing a show and a podcast. So they were just like, ‘Eat potato chips every day.’

Brooke Shields never once claimed that her seizure was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. In fact, she never mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine even once in her Glamour interview.

To be clear – hyponatremia (low sodium) can cause seizures. And there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines can cause tonic-clonic seizures.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Brooke Shields Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims that Brooke Shields is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, I can find no record of her COVID-19 vaccination status. She did not appear to posted anything about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine on social media, so it is uncertain he was vaccinated against COVID-19.

For all we know – Brooke Shields may not even be vaccinated against COVID-19! After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States. Many people who suffered sudden death or injuries were found to be unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless Brooke Shields reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that she is fully-vaccinated is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did Matthew Perry Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

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

Even if Brooke Shields was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean she suffered a seizure caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. For one thing – there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause seizures.

More importantly – she would have received her doses more than two years ago! She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months or years 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 VITTdevelop 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.

Duangphet Phromthep : Why He Died Suddenly In UK!

Duangphet Phromthep, the former captain of the football team that was rescued from a flooded Thai cave, died suddenly in the United Kingdom.

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

Updated @ 2023-11-04 : Added the official cause of death for Duangphet Phromthep
Originally posted @ 2023-02-16

Right after news broke that Duangphet Phromthep died suddenly, people immediately claimed that the 17 year-old former captain of the Wild Boars football team that was rescued from a flooded Thai cave died from vaccine SADS!

Another Sudden cardiac arrest with unknown cause especially in the young— after Covid infection/Covid vaccine era — spooky

Truth : Duangphet Phromthep Died From Suicide!

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 : Duangphet Phromthep Was Found Unconscious In His Dorm

Duangphet Phromthep was the 13 year-old captain of the Wild Boards (Moo Pa) football team that was rescued two weeks after a flash flood trapped them in a Thai cave on 23 June 2018.

Also known as Dom and Nong Dom, Duangphet Phromthep went to Chiang Mai to study sports, and received a scholarship to study at the Brooke House College Football Academy in Leicester, England, last year.

A teacher found Dom unconscious in his dorm on Sunday, 12 February 2023, and called the police. A Leicestershire police spokesperson confirmed this, stating:

Shortly before 1pm on Sunday, police were called to a boarding school in Leicester Road, Market Harborough by the East Midlands Ambulance Service.

The call concerned the welfare of a pupil. The pupil – a 17-year-old boy – was taken to hospital. He has since died.

Duangphet Phromthep was then sent to the Kettering General Hospital. However, he was unresponsive and died on Tuesday, 14 February, 2023. Ian Smith, the principal at Brooke House college released this statement:

This event has left our college community deeply saddened and shaken. We unite in grief with all of Dom’s family, friends, former teammates and those involved in all parts of his life, as well as everyone affected in any way by this loss in Thailand and throughout the college’s global family.

The college is liaising with statutory authorities and the Royal Thai embassy in London, and dedicating all resources to assist our student body, as they as young people process Dom’s passing. Beyond that, we are unable to comment further at this time and would ask for privacy and compassion as we continue to support the students in our care at this time, drawing on the kindness and assistance of the Market Harborough community.

Fact #2 : Duangphet Phromthep Allegedly Had A Head Injury

Claims that Duangphet Phromthep died from a cardiac arrest, or in his sleep from SADS, appear to be completely unfounded.

According to Supatpong Methigo – a Buddhist monk who taught him earlier, Duangphet’s grandmother told him he had died, after hitting his head in an accident.

Phra Khu Prayut Jetiyanukarn, abbot of Wat Phra That Doi Wao in Chiang Rai, said Duangphet’sthat  mother phoned him around 6 AM and told him that her son had died. The abbot said according to initial reports, there was an accident, a fall, and Duangphet was injured. He was admitted to the hospital, and put on a ventilator, but later died.

Other relatives told Thai reporters that they were informed that Duangphet had been injured in an accident that led to his death, and that details would be given by his football club in England.

Fact #3 : Duangphet Phromthep’s Death Was Not Suspicious

The cause of death for Duangphet Phromthep was initially not officially confirmed, but the Leicestershire police said that his death was not suspicious, and a file would be prepared for the coroner.

The boy’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

Fact #4 : Duangphet Phromthep Died From Suicide

On 4 October 2023, an inquest into Duangphet’s death was held at the Leicester Coroner’s Court. Professor Catherine Mason, the senior coroner for Leicester city and South Leicestershire, recorded a conclusion of suicide.

She said that Duangphet “was not known to mental health services, and it is not known why he took the actions that he did“, so “it could not have been foreseen or prevented“. She also stated that the “police investigation has found no evidence of third-party involvement or suspicious circumstances“.

The boy’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

It may seem obvious now, but I have to point out that Duangphet Phromthep most definitely did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect, as claimed or suggested by many anti-vaccine proponents.

Recommended : Hunter Brown : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine SADS!

Fact #5 : UK Never Had A Vaccine Mandate For Travellers

The United Kingdom never instituted a vaccine mandate for travellers. Travellers were required to test before flying to the UK, and quarantine on arrival.

The testing requirement was only lifted on 11 February 2022 for fully-vaccinated travellers. Even so, travellers who were not fully-vaccinated could still continue to travel to the UK. They just had to undergo a pre-departure COVID-19 test, and a PCR test on the day of arrival, or the next day.

Fact #6 : Unknown If Duangphet Phromthep Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

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

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Thailand, or the United Kingdom.

Unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Duangphet Phromthep was fully-vaccinated is likely lying to you. For certain – he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine.

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

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine are often proven false. Here are some other examples:

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

mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Did a new German study show mRNA vaccines creating spike proteins in human heart cells, causing heart abnormalities?!

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

 

Claim : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart!

Some people are sharing articles by American Faith and Epoch Health, which claim / suggest that a new German study found that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines created spike proteins in human heart cells. resulting in heart abnormalities.

Steve Kirsch : Wait a second. I thought these vaccines were safe and effective? Why are they attacking heart cells?

Chief Nerd : New research out of Germany observing rat and human heart cells shows that within 48 hours of vaccination, the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines form spike proteins. Spike proteins, made from the mRNA instructions inside the vaccines, were detected in the heart cells. While both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines caused cell abnormalities, the two induced different anomalies.

Here’s an excerpt from the American Faith article:

American Faith : COVID-19 Vaccine Research Shows Spike Protein Forming in Heart Cells

Here’s an excerpt from the Epoch Health article:

Epoch Health : mRNA COVID Vaccines Form Spike Protein in Heart Cells, but Cause Different Anomalies

Recommended : New study shows Cardiac Side Effects of mRNA Vaccines?!

 

Truth : Study Showed mRNA Vaccine Effect On Rat Heart Cells!

Let’s take a look at what we know about this new study, and see what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Study Was Peer-Reviewed

First, I should point out that this is a peer-reviewed study that was published in a reputable journal – the British Journal of Pharmacology. So it’s not like the “Belgian study” that allegedly showed that the Pfizer mRNA vaccine causes turbo cancer.

That said – the pre-publication peer review is only the first step in scientific review process. After its publication, it is still subject to post-publication peer review, including verification and further research by other scientists.

Fact #2 : Study Is Not Available Publicly

I should also point out that the study itself is hidden behind a paywall, with only a brief abstract available publicly. This is important because without knowing the details, it is simply impossible to know the accuracy or significance of this study. As they say – the devil is in the details.

Fortunately, it appears that Dr. Ralf B. Lukner MD PhD has access to the study itself, and has provided some important insights into this study. So this fact check will rely on both his insights, and what’s available publicly.

Fact #3 : Study Was Conducted On Rat Heart Cells

According to the public abstract of the study, it was conducted on isolated rat cardiomyocytes (RCm) over a 72 hour period.

Basically, the study did not involve any human beings or even live animals. Instead, it used single heart muscle cells from a rat.

Even though both American Faith and Epoch Health claimed that the study involved human heart cells, the abstract itself did not mention any human heart cells being used.

In real life, the COVID-19 vaccines are injected into the deltoid muscle of a human being, and not into the heart of a rat. In real life, heart muscle cells also do not soak in a bath of hyper-concentrated  COVID-19 vaccine for 3 days.

So it is important to understand that this is not at all representative of what actually happens in a human being, or even a live rat…

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

Fact #4 : Study Used Very High Vaccine Doses

According to Dr. Lukner, the study used very high doses of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines:

  • Pfizer : 1 μg/mL
  • Moderna : 10 μg/mL

In contrast, human beings – which have 36 trillion more cells, only receive 30 μg of the Pfizer vaccine, or 100 μg of the Moderna vaccine.

By my estimate, the doses used in this study are far beyond what any human being will ever receive in a million lifetimes:

  • Pfizer : 1.2 trillion vaccine doses
  • Moderna : 3.6 trillion vaccine doses

As any scientist can tell you – the dose makes the poison. At sufficiently high doses, all chemicals – including water and oxygen – can be toxic.

Fact #5 : It Was A Laboratory Study

I should also point out the salient fact that it was a laboratory study (also known as an in vitro 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, laboratory studies showed 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 happens in a laboratory, may not happen in an actual human being.

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

Fact #6 : Nothing Happened Until Spike Proteins Were Created

Interestingly, the study authors pointed out that both Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines did not affect the rat heart muscle cells in any way, until they started producing the spike protein after 48 hours of soaking in a bath of vaccine.

Assuming that this can be replicated by other scientists, this suggests a couple of things:

  • the rat heart muscle cells are not affected by the presence of the mRNA vaccine itself
  • the rat heart muscle cells only “malfunctioned” after they created the spike proteins

Is it therefore possible that the rat heart muscle cells might be malfunctioning because they were overwhelmed by the extremely high vaccine doses into excessively creating the spike proteins, instead of performing their normal functions?

Is it also possible that the spike proteins caused morphological changes (shape, size, texture, etc.) that disrupted the rat heart muscle cells’ ability to contract properly?

Needless to say – MORE research is needed before any conclusion can be made about the mRNA vaccine’s cardiotoxic effects in rats, never mind any potential cardiotoxic effects in actual human beings.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Infections Produce Far More Spike Proteins!

It is important to point out that unlike the SARS-CoV-2 virus, COVID-19 vaccines do not multiply and can only induce a limited number of cells to produce the spike protein. And again – the vaccines are injected into the arm, and not the heart.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus, on the other hand, will spread through the body, creating spike proteins in a multitude of cells. If the spike proteins are the problem, which this study suggests, then a COVID-19 infection poses a far greater threat than the COVID-19 vaccine.

Recommended : Do COVID-19 Vaccines DOUBLE Heart Disease Risk?

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Infections Cause Heart Problems

Finally, I should point out that COVID-19 infections are known to cause heart problems, even in people who recover.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus does not only cause myocarditis, it can also damage heart muscle tissue directly. COVID-19 infections have also been shown to cause serious ventricular arrhythmias, and even inflame the coronary arteries.

The mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 are already known to cause pericarditis and myocarditis in young males, but this is a relatively rare cardiac side effect and generally milder than if caused by COVID-19 infections.

That’s why health authorities across the world continue to advocate getting the COVID-19 vaccines. After all – the risk of getting myocarditis from multiple doses of the vaccines are much lower than the risk of getting myocarditis from a single COVID-19 infection!

Did Larissa Borges Die Suddenly From Vaccine?!

Did fitness influencer Larissa Borges die suddenly from double cardiac arrest caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?! Find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-09-08 : Added more details
Originally posted @ 2023-09-04

 

Claim : Larissa Borges Died Suddenly From Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Larissa Borges died unexpectedly from two cardiac arrests, some people immediately claimed that the young Brazilian fitness influencer died suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine.

Steve Kirsch : Lot of young fit people suffering cardiac arrest. Let’s not talk about the vaccine. Brazilian fitness influencer Larissa Borges dies aged 33 after a week in a coma following a double cardiac arrest

Wayne Root : U don’t have to guess. I already know medical “experts” (ie bribed professional liars) will blame cause of death on ANYTHING other than mandated Covid vaccine. We are living in world of propaganda like 1930’s Nazi Germany or Soviet Union.

FormerFeds : Fitness influencer Larissa Borges, 33, dies following double cardiac arrest. Was it the jab?

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

 

No Evidence Larissa Borges Died Suddenly From Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : Larissa Borges Died After Suffering Two Cardiac Arrests

33 year-old Larissa Borges was a Brazilian fitness influencer on Instagram. On August 20, 2023, she was admitted to the Hospital Arcanjo São Miguel, after suffering a cardiac arrest in the city of Gramado.

She remained in coma for 8 days, before passing away after she suffered a second cardiac arrest on early Monday morning, August 20, 2023. She was laid to rest on Wednesday, August 30, 2023.

Fact #2 : An Autopsy Was Conducted On Larissa Borges

Even though Larissa Borges died after suffering two cardiac arrests, her official cause of death is still unknown. The Brazilian police are investigating her death, and an autopsy was conducted on her body.

According to Rio Grande do Sul Civil Police deputy Gustavo Barcellos, they are waiting for the autopsy results, which can take up to 30 days to complete, to determine her cause of death.

Until and unless the Brazilian police and/or her family reveals her cause of death, anyone who tells you that Larissa Borges died from this or that cause is likely lying to you.

The truth is – we currently do NOT know her cause of death. And there is no evidence that her cardiac arrest was caused by any vaccine.

Fact #3 : Larissa Borges Allegedly Had Drugs + Alcohol Before Cardiac Arrest

Witnesses told police that Larissa Borges was at a party in the mountain resort town of Gramado before she suffered her first cardiac arrest, where she not only had alcoholic drinks, she also took drugs.

There is a report of a possible ingestion of narcotic substances, accumulated with alcoholic beverages.

We will try to search through laboratory tests for substances that she possibly consumed.

Rio Grande do Sul Civil Police deputy Gustavo Barcellos said that the police also interviewed Larissa Borges’ boyfriend, Eduardo Moreira (who is also known as Dudu Personal) who accompanied her to the party.

The police are also reviewing videos from their phones, as well as surveillance videos from the party, to see if they can get a better understanding of what happened.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Larissa Borges Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims that Larissa Borges was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Larissa Borges was never vaccinated against COVID-19. After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Brazil.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless her family reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Larissa Borges was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

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

Even if Larissa Borges was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her doses over a year ago!

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

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

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

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

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

Is Pfizer Vaccine Responsible For Leprosy Cases?!

Is the Pfizer mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 responsible for the surge of leprosy cases in Florida and elsewhere?!

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

 

Claim : Pfizer Vaccine Is Responsible For Leprosy Cases!

People are sharing an article on two leprosy cases after COVID-19 vaccination, claiming or suggesting that the Pfizer mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 is responsible for the surge of leprosy cases in Florida and elsewhere!

Steve Kirsch : OK, so here’s the deal: 98% of the patients who developed Leprosy had the COVID vax before they got the leprosy. Just a “coincidence.” Safe and effective!!! 😉

Emerald Robinson : The COVID vaccines have brought back leprosy! Thank you @DARPA. Thank you @NIH & FDA. Great job, everybody.

Dr. Colleen Huber : Another adverse event from the COVID vaccine. Injury to T-cells and Type I interferon has left the COVID-vaccinated vulnerable to leprosy.

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

 

No Evidence Pfizer Vaccine Is Responsible For Leprosy Cases!

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

Fact #1 : Retrospective Cohort Study Is An Uncorrected Proof

First, let’s start by referring you to the actual study – COVID-19 vaccination and leprosy – A UK hospital-based retrospective cohort study, so you can read it for yourself.

The study, which was published in PLOS on 4 August 2023, is currently in the uncorrected proof stage. This was highlighted in red at the top of the article. That does not mean it is wrong. It just means that the authors may still make corrections or changes to the article.

Fact #2 : Everyone In Study Had Leprosy

Now, it is important to point out that everyone in this study had leprosy.

In fact, only five out of the 52 patients were “newly diagnosed with leprosy”. The remaining 47 patients were diagnosed with leprosy earlier.

In other words – the study does NOT show that COVID-19 vaccination causes leprosy, or reduces a person’s immunity and makes it easier to get leprosy.

Fact #3 : Leprosy Is A Bacterial Infection

Now, I should point out that leprosy (which is also called Hansen’s disease) is a bacterial infection caused by either Mycobacterium leprae or Mycobacterium lepromatosis.

Leprosy is not a viral infection, and is not remotely related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus (which is a coronavirus), or the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #4 : Leprosy Is Slow Growing

In addition, leprosy develops slowly – the average incubation period is five years. Most people don’t notice any symptoms until a year later, with some only noticing symptoms 20 years after getting infected.

Generally, people have been infected for many months or years by the time they are diagnosed with leprosy.

In other words – people in that study would very likely have been infected with leprosy months or years before they received their COVID-19 vaccinations.

Recommended : Did Bill Gates Develop mRNA Vaccine Patches For The Poor?!

Fact #5 : Almost Half Were On Immunosuppressants

The study also pointed out that twenty-two of those leprosy patients (41.5%) were on a systemic immunosuppressant drug during 2021.

This is important to know, because leprosy patients are prescribed immunosuppressants like steroids to treat leprosy reactions and neuritis. In fact, this was noted in the second sentence of the article:

Leprosy reactions require systemic immunosuppression which is a risk factor for severe COVID-19.

This suggests that potentially those twenty-two patients had earlier been diagnosed with leprosy reaction and/or neuritis from their existing leprosy infections.

This shows just how common it is for leprosy patients to develop leprosy reactions, even without getting COVID-19 vaccinations.

Fact #6 : There Was No Statistical Analysis

As there was no control group, the authors could not conduct any statistical analysis to determine a causal relationship between COVID-19 vaccination and leprosy reactions.

This was pointed out by the reviewers and acknowledged by the study authors in their response (Word document):

We apologize for not including a detailed statistical analysis plan in the manuscript. We performed a simple analysis of the data due to the retrospective nature of the study and the absence of a control group.

We agree that a comprehensive statistical evaluation would be essential to establish a causal relationship between SARS-CoV-2 vaccination and leprosy reactions definitively.

In other words – the study did not show any causal relationship between COVID-19 vaccination and developing new leprosy reactions.

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

Fact #7 : Only Two Had New Leprosy Reaction Post-Vaccination

The study wanted to look at whether the COVID-19 vaccination could trigger a T cell response, which would provoke an immunological response to a latent (hidden) leprosy infection.

Out of the 52 people in the study, the COVID-19 vaccination status was only known for 50. Out of those 50 people, 49 were vaccinated, while 1 was not.

Out of the 49 people who were vaccinated against COVID-19, only two individuals developed new leprosy reactions.

Even if we believe that COVID-19 vaccination can trigger leprosy reactions, and take this result at face value, the risk of existing leprosy patients developing new leprosy reactions after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is only 1 in 25 people (4%).

Fact #8 : Thousands Of Leprosy Cases Are Reported Every Year

While some people have suggested that leprosy is extinct, or extremely rare, the truth is – more than 200,000 new cases are reported every year, in over 120 countries!

Even in the United States, about 150-200 new cases are reported every year, with many cases reported in Florida.

If COVID-19 vaccination makes you more susceptible to leprosy, there would have been a global surge in leprosy cases. There has been no such surge in leprosy cases.

In fact, the 2023 surge in cases in Central Florida appear to be localised in Brevard County, suggesting that leprosy is now endemic in that area, and has nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccines.

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

Do COVID-19 vaccines have a death rate that is over 1000X higher than the acceptable safe limit?!

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

 

Claim : COVID Vaccines Have 1000X Death Rate Than Safe Limit!

People are sharing an article by tech millionaire Steve Kirsch, who claims that the COVID vaccines have a death rate that is 1000X higher than the acceptable safe limit!

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

The COVID vaccines have an estimated death rate >1,000 higher than the acceptable safe limit

But nobody at the FDA or the CDC cares about that. The real story is that an estimated 80% or more of the vaccines examined in this study are too deadly to be used. Here’s the data showing that.

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

 

Truth : COVID Vaccines Do Not Have 1000X Death Rate Than Safe Limit!

This is yet another example of MISINFORMATION being created to scare people about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : VAERS Data Is Unverified

First, let me just point out that VAERS data is unverified, and notoriously susceptible to abuse, and false reporting. That’s because it’s an open system that anyone – not just doctors, can report anything they want.

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

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

Fact #2 : NVICP Data Does Not Cover COVID-19 Vaccines

Oddly, the VAERS Analysis chart used data from NVICP (National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program), but not CICP.

Why does it use NVICP data when actual COVID-19 vaccine claims are covered by a separate programme called Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP)?

COVID-19 vaccines are covered countermeasures under the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), not the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

Fact #3 : 1000X Death Rate Was Completely Made-Up

As mentioned earlier, VAERS data is unverified, and open to abuse and false reporting. So deaths reported to VAERS may not be related to the vaccine, and may have duplicate reports.

On top of that, the VAERS Analysis chart included NVICP data, but not CICP data. Hence, the VAERS Analysis chart with its death rate of 25 per million for the COVID-19 vaccines is highly suspect.

But what’s worse is what Steve Kirsch did with that already suspect data – he multiplied it by 41! Why 41? Why not 42 – the answer to life, the universe, and everything?

Where do I get the 1,000X higher than safe?

The graph shows just 25 deaths per million. But VAERS is under-reported by 41X. Do the math: 25 x 41 = 1025.

How did Steve Kirsch determine that VAERS is under-reported by 41X? Who knows? But multiplying it by 41 lets him declare that there are over 1000 deaths per million, and therefore, the COVID-19 vaccines are >1000X over the nonsensical safety limit of 1 death per million.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Vaccine Combine With DNA In Liver Cells?!

Fact #4 : There Is No Such Thing As A Safe Limit

I should now point out that there is no such thing as a universal “acceptable safe limit” for all vaccines or drugs of “1 death per million vaccinated people”.

Decisions on whether a treatment or vaccine should or should not be recommended are based on risk benefit analyses that determine whether the benefits outweigh the risks. Those decisions are exclusive to that particular vaccine / drug, and may change over time depending on new research and data.

Fact #5 : Dr. Paul Offit Never Mentioned A Safe Limit For Vaccines

Steve Kirsch based his “acceptable safe limit” of 1 death per million vaccinated people on a quote by Dr. Paul Offit from an interview with 60 Minutes on 11 December 2002.

However, Dr. Paul Offit never said that 1 death per million vaccinated was an “acceptable safe limit”. This was what he said:

“We know if we immunize a million people, that there will be 15 people that will suffer severe, permanent adverse outcomes and one person who may die from the vaccine,” says Dr. Paul Offit, one of the country’s top infectious disease specialists, and he knows all about vaccines that prevent those diseases. In his lab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, he studies and creates new vaccines.

Dr. Paul Offit was pointing out that more effort should be made to improve the safety of the smallpox vaccine, since the current vaccine is based on 18th century technology, and there are now better and safer vaccine technologies.

There’s nothing new about the smallpox vaccine. The vaccine was created in 1796. The vaccine used today is essentially the same, Offit says. “We tend to think of vaccines as being very safe and every effective, which they are. But all the vaccines that we use today are the result of modern technology. That’s not true of the smallpox vaccine. It has a side effect profile that we, we would not accept for vaccines today,” he says.

That doesn’t mean that 1 death in 1 million vaccinated is a universal safe limit for vaccines. It merely means new vaccine technologies can be used to make an even safer smallpox vaccine.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why Utah State WR Josh Davis Suddenly Collapsed!

Did Utah State wide receiver Josh Davis suddenly collapsed on the field from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect?!

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

 

Claim : Utah State WR Josh Davis Suddenly Collapsed From Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Josh Davis collapsed on the field during practice, people immediately claimed that the Utah State wide receiver was injured by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Steve Kirsch : Have you ever seen so many cardiac arrests among young kids before in your life????

JoeBell : Utah State football player hospitalized after suffering cardiac arrest.

It is due to #covidvaccine until proven otherwise. Doctors need access to CDC vaccine database for brand dose 1 2 3 etc. With vaccine myocarditis sports are not allowed because it triggers cardiac arrest.

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

 

Truth : Josh Davis Did Not Collapse From Vaccine Side Effect!

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 : Josh Davis Collapsed Suddenly During Practice

Josh Davis (born August 13, 2002) is a former Carlsbad high school football player who joined the Utah State University’s Aggies football team in February 2022.

Some people appear to be confusing him with a different Josh Davis (born Joshua Davis on September 21, 1998) who plays for the Weber State Wildcats as a running back.

The Utah State Josh Davis was training with his team at the Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium on Thursday, March 23, 2023, when he suddenly collapsed on the field.

He was immediately treated by the Utah State University (USU) training staff and emergency medical personnel. He was later taken to the Logan Regional Hospital and then the McKay Dee Hospital, where he was stabilised and underwent therapeutic hypothermia to preserve his neurological function.

Although he was initially not identified, Utah State University later issued a statement identifying him as Josh Davis.

Davis, a redshirt freshman wide receiver from Carlsbad, California, collapsed during practice on Thursday and was immediately treated by USU’s athletic training staff, led by Mike Williams, Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, followed by emergency medical personnel, who transported him to Logan Regional Hospital

Davis received initial critical treatment and was stabilized at Logan Regional Hospital before being transported to McKay-Dee Hospital, where their critical care team continued treatment with therapeutic hypothermia to lower the body temperature to preserve his neurological function.

Davis’ parents, Matt and Chrissy, arrived in Utah Thursday evening, and were met at the hospital by Utah State Team Physician Dr. David G. Liddle, Interim Athletics Director Jerry Bovee, head football coach Blake Anderson and athletic trainer Kendra Gilmore.

Fact #2 : Josh Davis Suffered A Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Utah State University then shared a photo with an update on Friday, March 24, announcing that his condition was upgraded from critical to “Fair Condition” that morning.

It also stated that Josh Davis collapsed after suffering a “non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest“.

Josh Davis, a football player for Utah State, has been upgraded from critical to fair condition as of Friday morning, following a non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest during Thursday’s spring practice on Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium.

Aggies head coach Blake Anderson praised the USU training staff for their quick action, which likely saved Josh Davis’ life.

Awake, alert, and breathing on his own. The training staff absolutely saved his life. No hesitation all. Miracle.

Read more : Did Ryan Keeler Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Josh Davis Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Josh Davis never publicly revealed his COVID-19 vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, which is why many people like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar were never vaccinated.

Utah State University (USU) required students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for Spring Semester 2022, but dropped that requirement for the Fall 2022 intake.

Since USU calls Josh Davis a freshman (first year student), it is likely he joined USU in the fall, which would mean he was not subjected to the earlier vaccine mandate. That does not mean he is unvaccinated. It simply means – we don’t know his vaccination status.

Until and unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Josh Davis was fully-vaccinated or boosted is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is Common In Young Athletes

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many US states enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Fact #5 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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 Karl Lauterbach Admit Vaccines Are Dangerous?!

Did German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach just admit that the COVID-19 vaccines are dangerous, and cause many serious injuries?!

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

 

Claim : Karl Lauterbach Just Admitted That Vaccines Are Dangerous!

People are sharing a video of German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach apparently admitting that the COVID-19 vaccines are dangerous, and cause serious injuries in one in every 10,000 doses!

Steve Kirsch : This is the German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach admitting that the COVID vaccine causes serious injury in 1 in 10,000 doses. But the actual rate for serious injury is ~100X more than that; closer to 1 in 100 doses. For death, it is ~1 in 1,000 doses. But this is progress!

Aussie17 : SHIT HITS THE FAN IN GERMANY😱

Health Minister admits vaccines injuries!
1 in 10000 doses (not people)
Says:
“ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING”
“Why did you claim it was safe and effective?” – “It was a failed tweet!”
“First of all, I didn’t sign the contracts!”
“BioNTech-EXORBITANT PROFITS!”

Jay Bhattacharya : Beleaguered German health minister, Karl Lauterbach, admits “what he had long denied, namely ugly vaccination side effects. With this change in tune, he gets both his boss and himself in trouble.”

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

 

Truth : Karl Lauterbach Did Not Admit Vaccines Are Dangerous!

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

Fact #1 : Viral Video Was Edited

First, let me just point out that the viral video that was being shared by the likes of Steve Kirsch, etc. was edited to convey a different perception from the original video.

The viral video was edited from a segment of the heute journal (Today’s Journal) show by the German television network, ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen), that was posted on 13 March 2023.

The segment featuring German Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach starts at around 8:07 and ends at 15:03, lasting just under 7 minutes.

But for full context, you should start at 3:54 for the full segment on vaccine injuries, which lasts for over 11 minutes.

The viral video lasts only 45 seconds, naturally taking out all context of what Karl Lauterbach said in that long segment.

Fact #2 : Karl Lauterbach’s Words Were Taken Out Of Context

If you watch the full segment, you will see that the viral video was edited to frame Karl Lauterbach’s words out of context. In this part, he pointed out that severe vaccine injuries are very rare.

To avoid any false impressions, I would point out here that, according to the latest research data, severe vaccine injuries are very rare. The incidence is less than one in 10,000 vaccinations. So it’s not like injury is common.

But because our understanding of adverse events is now getting clearer and clearer, it should be possible to more quickly identify those who are affected, so we can help them more quickly.

When the ZDF moderator, Christian Sievers, asked him why he continued to say in the summer of 2021 that the vaccines had no side effects, this was what Karl Lauterbach said:

That was an exaggeration that I once made in an ill-considered tweet, but it did not represent my true position.

On numerous occasions, even before then, I spoke about the side effects of immunisation.

Karl Lauterbach also pointed out that the severe adverse effects seen after vaccination are similar with the symptoms of long COVID.

I’ve always been aware of the numbers. They have remained relatively stable. These vaccines have been used worldwide. One in 10,000: some may say that’s a lot, and some may say it’s not that much.

But the fact is, it’s a vaccination that protects against very serious illness. And, by the way, it very often also reduces the risk of long COVID, which has similarities with what we have been seeing here with post-vax syndrome.

So benefits of vaccination outweighs the risks. But yes, one in 10,000, that’s the incidence of severe adverse effects.

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

Fact #3 : Reported Adverse Effects Not Necessarily Vaccine Injuries

Karl Lauterbach said that severe vaccine injuries were reported at a rate of about 1 in 10,000 vaccinations. That’s the REPORTED rate, not the actual number of confirmed vaccine injuries.

Back in July 2022, the German Federal Ministry of Health (Bundesministerium für Gesundheit) posted a reported side effect rate of 1 in 5,000 vaccinations, which was pounced on by anti-vaccination activist groups like Children’s Health Defense (CHD).

Then, as now, the German authorities were referring to the “reporting rate” for “suspected reports”. These reports have to be verified, as they may not be caused by the COVID-19 vaccines at all.

While the German system isn’t as open to abuse like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, they include reports that have nothing to do with the vaccine. All pharmacovigilance databases that collect such reports warn that their data and reports cannot be considered evidence of any kind, because :

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

German health officials clarified that those reports have not been verified, and no causal connection with the vaccination has been established.

Die Melderate bezieht sich auf alle Verdachtsmeldungen, d. h. ein ursächlicher Zusammenhang mit der Impfung ist mit der Verdachtsmeldung noch nicht bestätigt, es wird erstmal ein zeitlicher Zusammenhang festgestellt.

The report rate refers to all suspicious reports, i.e. a causal connection with the vaccination has not yet been confirmed with the report of suspicion, a time connection is first established.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Greatly Reduce Hospitalisation + Death

What anti-vaccination activists don’t want you to know is that – the vaccines have been proven to greatly reduce hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

In Germany, RKI stats show that even as COVID-19 infections rates surged, vaccinated people were far less likely to be hospitalised from COVID-19, compared to the unvaccinated.

Fact #5 : Karl Lauterbach Promised More Help

The crux of the ZDF segment is about how long it takes people to get their vaccine injuries verified, highlighting two cases in which the victims had to wait a year or so to get the vaccine injuries certified, only to qualify for a pittance in state assistance. Hence, these two victims brought on civil suits against BioNTech and AstraZeneca for their vaccine injuries.

In that segment, Karl Lauterbach basically promised to speed up the process of verifying vaccine injuries, and to improve treatment options for those who are truly injured by the vaccines.

You will note that Lauterbach does not say that Germans should stop getting the vaccines. That’s because, as he pointed out in the video – the benefits of vaccination far outweighs the risks.

Fact #6 : Karl Lauterbach Said It’s Better For State To Assume Liability

While Karl Lauterbach did explain that he didn’t sign the contract approving the “exclusion of liability”, his words were twisted out of context in the edited video.

Here is the full transcript of his reply, after he was asked about the exclusion of liability in the contracts signed with vaccine companies.

Firstly, I wasn’t party to the agreements at that time, but they’ve become my responsibility by virtue of my office.

And I think that’s due to the situation at that time. Back then, they wanted to use the vaccines as soon as possible, and so the state assume liability.

Perhaps that was the right thing to do, because it’s better for the state to bear liability, than to face protracted settlement negotiations or lawsuits with the manufacturers.

It should be noted that, even though the pharmaceutical companies have received liability waivers for the COVID-19 vaccines, governments have set up compensation funds to cover those liabilities.

As Lauterbach pointed out – this is probably better for everyone, as it avoids long, costly lawsuits.

Did Justin Bieber Cancel Tour After Vaccine Injury?!

Did Justin Bieber cancel his Justice World Tour concerts after suffering a COVID-19 vaccine injury?!

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

 

Claim : Justin Bieber Cancelled Tour After Vaccine Injury!

After Justin Bieber cancelled the remaining concerts for his Justice World Tour, people immediately claimed that he only did so after he couldn’t recover from his COVID-19 vaccine injury.

Steve Kirsch : Clearly, Justin Bieber still doesn’t realize he’s been vaccine injured and is not getting the proper treatment. Likely won’t ever figure it out. What a shame.

This kid needs to wake up to the fact that he’s vaccine injured & work with doctors who will treat it appropriately. Ramsay Hunt = shingles outbreak = consequence of Covid vaxx.

WWURD_Official : “I’m going to be ok” … um, no you’re not… #DiedSuddenly

You took a gene-therapy bio-weapon, deceptively labeled as a “vaccine,” under the guise of an Emergency Use Authorization.

Have a last will and testament prepared and above all, believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ

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

 

Truth : Justin Bieber Did NOT Cancel Tour After Vaccine Injury!

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

Fact #1 : Justin Bieber Has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

On 10 June 2022, Justin Bieber announced on his verified Instagram account that he is taking a break from performing, because he was suffering from the Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

He never once said that his facial paralysis was due to the COVID-19 vaccine. His facial paralysis was caused by a viral infection, as Justin himself explained in his video :

I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.

As you can see this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face; this nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.

Also known as herpes zoster oticus, the Ramsay Hunt syndrome refers to a shingles outbreak that affects the facial nerve, and can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss.

Fact #2 : Justin Bieber Temporarily Cancelled Tour Earlier

Justin Bieber resumed his Justice World Tour at the end of July 2022, but stopped after just six live shows. That time, he did not say that it was due to his Ramsay Hunt Syndrome diagnosis, or a vaccine injury.

He stated that he was simply overwhelmed with exhaustion, and wanted to take a break:

According to TMZ, a source with direct knowledge of this decision told them that a significant reason was mental health, and that Justin had been struggling in the last few years and that has taken a toll.

Fact #3 : Justin Bieber Did Not Reveal Reason For Cancelling Remaining Shows

On 28 February 2023, Justin Bieber officially cancelled the remaining concerts of his Justice World Tour. People who purchased tickets for those shows would be refunded.

However, neither Justin Bieber nor his reps have publicly commented on the cancellation, or given a reason for cancelling them.

Therefore, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that Justin Bieber cancelled his Justice World Tour because of a vaccine injury, the Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, exhaustion, or mental health issues. We simply do NOT know WHY he cancelled the concerts.

Fact #4 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Caused His Facial Paralysis

COVID-19 vaccines have been associated with the rare side effect of temporary facial paralysis called Bell’s palsy.

Bell’s palsy may present similarly as Ramsay Hunt syndrome in the form of facial paralysis on one side of the face, but they are different conditions.

It’s like how you can break your leg in a car accident, or from falling off a ladder. It’s the same injury, but the causes are different.

This is why it is wrong to blame the COVID-19 vaccine for Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis, when it developed from a past infection by an unrelated virus.

Fact #5 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Is Caused By Chickenpox Virus

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (Human alphaherpesvirus 3), which is the virus that causes chickenpox.

It has nothing to do with COVID-19, which is caused by a completely different virus – SARS-CoV-2, which is from a completely different virus family – Coronaviridae.

In fact, for Justin Bieber to develop Ramsay Hunt syndrome, he must have had a chickenpox infection in the past.

Even after a chickenpox infection resolves, the virus remains dormant in our nervous system. The dormant virus can reactivate later in life in about ⅓ of cases, causing shingles (herpes zoster).

Read more : Does the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine cause Bell’s palsy?

Fact #6 : Chickenpox Vaccine Prevents Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Shingles and Ramsay Hunt Syndrome are caused by the dormant varicella-zoster virus (VZV). They are prevented by the chickenpox vaccine.

By vaccinating children against chickenpox, you are also protecting them from shingles and Ramsay Hunt Syndrome in the future.

Fact #7 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Was Not Caused By Vaccination

Anti-vaccination activists are pointing to a BMJ report from Hong Kong called “Ramsay Hunt syndrome following COVID-19 vaccination” as “evidence” that Bieber’s condition was caused by his COVID-19 vaccination.

There are a few problems with that claim :

  • No one knows if Justin Bieber was even vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • He was assumed to be vaccinated, because his concerts in February 2022 required people to be vaccinated.
  • The Hong Kong report detailed a single case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome in someone who was vaccinated. It was not a study that confirmed that COVID-19 vaccines cause the Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
  • The man in the report developed Ramsay Hunt syndrome two days after getting vaccinated.
  • If Justin Bieber was vaccinated, he would have been vaccinated last year, not recently.
  • Ramsay Hunt syndrome cannot occur without a prior chickenpox infection.
  • The Hong Kong authors postulated that after being vaccinated, the immune system’s ability to suppress the varicella zoster virus may have been temporarily dampened by the switch to producing immune cells that target the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

So let me state this clearly – Ramsay Hunt Syndrome cannot be caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, because it’s caused by a past infection of an unrelated virus. See Fact #3.

Even if that stressful event was the vaccination (which include fear of the vaccine), it cannot possibly occur in anyone who was not first infected by the varicella zoster virus.

Read more : Did Justin Bieber Get Ramsay Hunt Syndrome From Vaccine?!

Fact #8 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Can Be Triggered By Stress / Infection

Like shingles, Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS) can be triggered by stress. Could the stress of preparing to perform have triggered Justin Bieber’s condition?

Why not? After all, RHS  naturally occurs in about 5 in 100,000 people per year. That’s approximately 400,000 cases per year globally.

RHS could have also been triggered by any infection, or medication that may suppress the immune system. Even a COVID-19 infection can potentially trigger RHS, but note that I’m not saying he got COVID-19. We also don’t know if he was on any medication.

Unless Justin happened to receive another booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine days before he developed RHS, it would be wrong to blame his condition on the vaccine.

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

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

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

Did WHO Recommend Permanent Use Of Face Mask?!

Did the WHO just recommend the PERMANENT use of face mask to combat COVID-19?!

 

Claim : WHO Recommends Permanent Use Of Face Mask!

People are sharing a Substack article called “WHO Unbelievably Recommends Permanent Masking, While New Study Confirms Vaccine Mandates Were Useless” with comments like these:

Steve Kirsch : In a remarkable feat of anti-science commitment, the WHO recently reaffirmed that it will join the CDC in reaffirming its absolute dedication to universal mask wearing to stop the spread of COVID. You can’t make this stuff up… you really can’t.

The WHO and the CDC now joining forces to mandate mask wearing. 🤡🌎

Despite Years of Failure, WHO Unbelievably Recommends Permanent Masking, While New Study Confirms Vaccine Mandates Were Useless

The W.H.O. & C.D.C move on mask mandates, regardless of science, days before the Biden Administration plans to hand over our nation’s sovereignty to the W.H.O. on the 27th?

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

 

Truth : WHO Did Not Recommend Permanent Use Of Face Mask!

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

Fact #1 : Article Offered No Evidence Of WHO Face Mask Mandate

The claim that the WHO has recommended the permanent use of face mask is based on a single Substack article by Ian Miller, specifically these parts.

Experts got vaccine mandates horribly wrong, while the WHO demands permanent masking in defiance of scientific evidence.

In a remarkable feat of anti-science commitment the World Health Organization recently reaffirmed that it will join the CDC in reaffirming its absolute dedication to universal mask wearing to stop the spread of COVID.

It would be remarkable if it’s true, but the writer did not actually offer any evidence to back up that claim.

Fact #2 : WHO Only Recommends Using Face Mask In Specific Situations

The article likely refers to a 13 January 2023 update by the WHO on its face mask wearing guidelines.

WHO has not changed its recommendation that the public should still continue to use a face mask in specific situations:

  • a recent exposure to COVID-19
  • when you have COVID-19
  • when you suspect you may have COVID-19
  • when you are at high-risk of severe COVID-19
  • if you are in a crowded, enclosed, or poorly-ventilated space

So the claim that the WHO is demanding / recommending the permanent use of face mask, or a face mask all the time, is nonsense.

Recommended : Are Children Dying From Heart Attacks By Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : WHO Only Changed Previous Advice On Epidemiological Situation

The only change WHO made was to recommend the use of a face mask in the situations above, regardless of the epidemiological situation – whether there is significant COVID-19 spread at the time and place, or not.

The WHO made the slight change in its face mask recommendation due to the “current spread of COVID-19 globally”. As COVID-19 is now widespread globally, it no longer makes sense to make those face mask recommendations based on the epidemiological situation.

WHO continues to recommend the use of masks by the public in specific situations, and this update recommends their use irrespective of the local epidemiological situation, given the current spread of the COVID-19 globally.

Masks are recommended following a recent exposure to COVID-19, when someone has or suspects they have COVID-19, when someone is at high-risk of severe COVID-19, and for anyone in a crowded, enclosed, or poorly ventilated space. Previously, WHO recommendations were based on the epidemiological situation.

Fact #4 : WHO Guidelines Are Not Mandatory

The claims that the WHO is “demanding” the use of a face mask is nonsense.

These WHO guidelines and recommendations are not mandatory for any person or country to adopt.

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

Fact #5 : WHO Cannot Supersede National Sovereignty

The claims that countries are handing over their sovereignty to the WHO to implement such face mask / vaccine mandates is nonsense.

The Charter of the United Nations guarantees the sovereign right to determine and manage their approach to public health. This was specifically pointed out in the zero draft of a proposed WHO agreement on preparing for future pandemics:

3. Sovereignty – States have, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of international law, the sovereign right to determine and manage their approach to public health, notably pandemic prevention, preparedness, response and recovery of health systems, pursuant to their own policies and legislation, provided that activities within their jurisdiction or control do not cause damage to their peoples and other countries. Sovereignty also covers the rights of States over their biological resources.

Did Ohio Rep Kris Jordan Die Suddenly From Vaccine?!

Did Ohio state representative Kris Jordan just die suddenly from vaccine SADS?!

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

 

Claim : Kris Jordan Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Kris Jordan died suddenly and unexpectedly, people immediately claimed that the Ohio state representative died suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS!

Steve Kirsch : Ohio state Rep. Kris Jordan dies at age 46. But don’t worry because they’ll NEVER check to see if he was killed by the vaccine.

Ohio State Representative Kris Jordan dies “unexpected” at 46

Show us his vaccine records please.

WAS IT THE JAB ??? Ohio State Representative Kris Jordan dies at 46

Ohio State Rep. Kris Jordan (Delaware Co.) dies at 46.

💉 🚫 🦠 ⁉️ A healthy 46-yr old politician just doesn’t die unexpectedly!

I am thinking he got the jab or he had information leading to the arrest, conviction & imprisonment of the Clintons. 🤣🤷🏼😎

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

 

Truth : Kris Jordan Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

It’s now 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 : Kris Jordan Died Unexpectedly

Kris Jordan (born on January 14, 1977) was a Republican member of the Ohio house of Representatives, and former Ohio senator.

On Saturday, February 25, the Ohio House speaker, James Stephens, announced that Kris Jordan died unexpectedly.

Kris was a loving father, a man of faith, a leader, and a person I considered a very dear friend. My heart goes out to Kris’s family, especially his three children and loving parents.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine ordered all flags to be at half-staff upon all public buildings and grounds throughout Delaware County and at the Ohio Statehouse, Vern Riffe Center and Rhodes Tower today and until sunset on the day of his funeral.

Fact #2 : Kris Jordan Died Of Natural Causes

The official cause of death for Kris Jordan was not publicly revealed. However, Ohio state senator Andrew Brenner, announced that Kris Jordan died of natural causes.

State Rep. Kris Jordan passed away today of natural causes. Kris has been a friend of mine since the early 90s. Together we created the first Teenage Republican Club in Delaware County, and he was the first president.

His death is a great loss to our county’s Republican Party, the Ohio Statehouse and the conservative movement. My wife, Sara Marie, and I extend our sincere condolences to his parents – whom I have known for almost 30 years, his three children, and his ex-wife.

Recommended : Was Joe Biden Caught Groping Girl On Viral Video?!

Fact #3 : Kris Jordan Was Anti-Vaccination!

It is hilarious that so many anti-vaccination activists are suggesting that Kris Jordan died from the COVID-19 vaccine, because he was anti-vaccination himself!

On 31 March 2021, he even equated wearing a face mask, and getting a vaccine, with the Holocaust!

*It’s just 15 days to flatten the curve
*It’s just a mask, wear it
*It’s just a shot, take it
*It’s just some papers, carry them <– we are here
*It’s just a few freedoms, deal with it
*It’s just a boxcar, get in
Every step away from freedom is a step closer to dictatorship.

His friend, Stephanie Stock, who is the President of the anti-vax group, Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom (OAMF), confirmed this in two separate posts (here and here). She also suggested his death was related to diabetes.

Our friend Rep. Kris Jordan has died. 💔
It was diabetes related.
(No -Kris was not vaxxed.)
Please pray for his 3 children and family. 😭

To be CLEAR…. Kris was NOT vaccinated.
Kris was my friend and I know for a fact he did not take any vaccines including Covid.
And for the vaxZealots out there…
He did NOT die of ”Covid Complications”.
His death was related to his diabetes.

This is not the first time anti-vaccination activists threw one of their own under the “Died Suddenly” bus. They too claimed that fellow antivaxxers, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar, died from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Fact #5 : Claims Of Politicians Injured / Killed By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of politician injury or death from COVID-19 vaccines have been proven false at every instance. Here are a few examples I fact checked in the past.

Are Children Dying From Heart Attacks By Vaccine?!

Are children dying from heart attacks caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Children Are Dying From Heart Attacks Caused By Vaccine!

People are sharing an article by tech millionaire Steve Kirsch, which suggests that children are dying from heart attacks caused by the COVID-19 vaccines.

First was an “owner of many funeral homes across the US”, who allegedly claimed that they have never seen a 15 year-old die from a heart attack, but in December 2022 alone, they handled three such cases.

Second was “a very experienced nurse” who never heart of a 15 year old with a heart attack in her entire career, but now hears of them on a regular basis.

Here is an excerpt from his article, but it’s still rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts:

Ever since the vaccines rolled out, deaths are up, particularly among young people.

I talked to the owner of many funeral homes across the US; collectively they handle over 3,000 funerals a year. He asked that his name be kept confidential for fear of retribution.

 

No Evidence Children Are Dying From Heart Attacks Caused By Vaccine!

This is yet another example of MISINFORMATION being created to scare people about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Heart Attack Is Not Cardiac Arrest

First, I think it is important to establish that a heart attack (myocardial infarction) is not the same thing as a cardiac arrest.

A cardiac arrest is an electrical problem that causes the heart to stop beating completely, causing the person to collapse and lose consciousness, as we have seen with many young athletes like Christian Eriksen and Paul Duncan, as well as children like Jackson Mohr.

A heart attack is a circulation problem where blood supply to the heart is interrupted, typically by a blood clot. The person will often experience chest pain, shortness of breath, and even feel light-headed or nauseous.

It is also important to note that people who suffer a heart attack can develop an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest.

Read more : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Fact #2 : Heart Attack Is Not Myocarditis

Second, it is also important to note that myocarditis and pericarditis are different from a heart attack (myocardial infarction.

Myocarditis and pericarditis are, respectively, inflammation of the heart muscle, and its lining. They are known rare side effects of mRNA vaccines, as well as more commonly – viral infections.

A heart attack, as explained earlier, occurs when the heart’s blood supply is interrupted, often by a blood clot blocking one or more coronary arteries. No COVID-19 vaccine is known to cause heart attacks in children or in adults.

Read more : Do mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Increase Heart Disease Risk?

Fact #3 : Children Can And Do Die From Heart Attacks

Most of us probably (and thankfully!) won’t know of a child who has suffered from a heart attack, or tragically, died from one.

So it may seem believable when we are told that a funeral home owner, or even a nurse, has never seen a child die from a heart attack. The sad truth is – children can and do die from heart attacks.

In the United Kingdom, the UK Office for National Statistics reported that over 19,000 children (19 years and younger) without any known underlying disease die from heart attacks every single year.

  • 2018 : 19,654 children died from acute myocardial infarction
  • 2019 : 19,386 children died from acute myocardial infarction
  • 2020 : 19,440 children died from acute myocardial infarction

Fact #4 : No Evidence Childhood Deaths From Heart Attacks Increased By 100X

It appears that Steve Kirsch based his claim that childhood deaths from heart attacks increased on anecdotes from that funeral home owners. My emphasis in bold.

Like most funeral homes, they don’t tally statistics but they remember the anecdotes. The most noticeable thing is that the events are happening disproportionally to younger people (i.e., people under 65).

So if elderly deaths are only up by 15%, but younger age groups are increased by 100% or more, the overall all-cause mortality for all ages will only increase modestly (since younger people rarely die).

Somehow, that increase by 100% (2X increase) later became “kids dying of heart attacks are up by 100X over normal“, which is a 10,000% increase.

I’m not sure if this is a typo and he really meant a 100% (2X) increase, since Kirsch repeated the 100X increase twice.

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

Fact #5 : No Evidence Childhood Deaths From Heart Attacks Increased By 100X

There is no evidence that childhood deaths from heart attacks have increased, never mind whether it’s by 2X (100%) or 100X.

But if we use Kirsch’s claim to extrapolate from the data (see Fact #3) that an average of 19,000 children in the UK die from heart attacks every year before the vaccine was introduced, that would mean:

  • 100% increase : 38,000 children in the UK should die every year post-vaccination
  • 10000% increase : 1.9 million children in the UK should die every year post-vaccination

Just FYI, there are only about 14 million children under the age of 18 in the United Kingdom. Since COVID-19 vaccines have been introduced for over 2 years now, the UK should have seen :

  • 100% increase : 76,000 children dead from heart attacks
  • 10000% increase : 3.8 million children dead from heart attacks

I look forward to Steve Kirsch, or anyone else, providing that so many children really died from heart attacks, whether they are caused by the COVID-19 vaccines or otherwise.

Did FAA Admit Pilot EKGs Not Normal After Vaccines?!

Did the FAA admit that pilot EKGs are no longer normal, because the COVID-19 vaccines have damaged their hearts?!

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

 

Claim : FAA Admitted Pilot EKGs Are Abnormal From COVID-19 Vaccines!

An article by Steve Kirsch has gone viral, claiming that the FAA admitted that pilot EKGs are no longer normal, because the COVID-19 vaccines have damaged the hearts of many pilots?!

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

In the October 2022 version of the FAA Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners, the FAA quietly widened the EKG parameters beyond the normal range (from a PR max of .2 to unlimited). And they didn’t widen the range by a little. They widened it by a lot. It was done after the vaccine rollout.

This is extraordinary. They did it hoping nobody would notice. It worked for a while. Nobody caught it.

But you can’t hide these things for long.

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

 

Truth : FAA Did Not Admit Pilot EKGs Are Abnormal From Vaccines!

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

Fact #1 : EKG = ECG

First, let me quickly clarify that EKG and ECG refer to the same test – electrocardiogram.

EKG is the abbreviation original German spelling (elektrokardiogramm), while ECG is the abbreviation for the English spelling.

Fact #2 : FAA Split 1st Degree AV Block Into Two Categories

On October 26, 2022, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) amended its medical policy on Heart Arrhythmias, specifically First-Degree Atrioventricular Block (1st Degree AV Block).

Previously, pilots with first-degree AV block were required to undergo tests and submit documentation to prove that they had “no evidence of structural function or coronary heart disease” to be certified to fly.

The FAA’s amended medical policy now splits pilots with first-degree AV block into two groups:

  • PR interval of less than 300 ms : certified for flight if no symptoms or Approved Medical Examiner (AME) concerns
  • PR interval of 300 ms or more : pilots must submit a current Holter and cardiac evaluation to the FAA for review

The claim that the FAA expanded the limit from 0.2 (seconds?) to unlimited is nonsense. There is a hard limit of 300 milliseconds (0.3 seconds) – from that point, the pilot must submit documentation for FAA’s evaluation.

Fact #3 : PR Interval Of Less Than 300 ms Usually Benign

The ECG of a person with a normal heart would generally have a PR interval of between 120 and 200 milliseconds. Anything above that usually indicates an AV block.

However, first-degree AV block is a misnomer – it only delays the electrical signal, it does not block it. Therefore, first-degree AV block often do not present with any noticeable symptoms.

On top of that, no treatment is indicated for people with first-degree AV block if their PR interval is less than 300 milliseconds, because it rarely causes any symptoms.

In an otherwise healthy heart, this is usually a benign condition and rarely causes any symptoms. In general, it does not require specific treatment besides a complete evaluation by a physician.

– Dr. Roland Assi, cardiac surgeon and assistant professor at Yale University

It is not uncommon for people to have such delays. If the [AV] block is less than 300 milliseconds, there is no indication for further therapy nor increased risk or impairment of bodily function

– Dr. Eric Adler, cardiologist and professor of medicine at University of California, San Diego.

Fact #4 : Long PR Interval Not A Vaccine Side Effect

I should point out that longer PR interval is not a COVID-19 vaccine side effect. In fact, a PR interval of less than 300 milliseconds is considered normal in many healthy people, with a PR interval of less than 400 milliseconds normal in healthy athletes.

For reference, in healthy athletes a PR interval <400 msec is considered normal. So, the 300 msec cutoff may be considered conservative in many healthy people.

– Dr. Richard Kovacs, chief medical officer at the America College of Cardiology.

Fact #5 : Change Was Not Made Because Of Vaccine

The FAA has spoken out about the claim, stating that the decision to adjust their policy for first-degree AV block was based on current science and data, and not because pilots were developing heart problems from COVID-19 vaccinations.

When making changes to medical requirements and guidance, the FAA follows standard processes based on data and science.

Our cardiology consultants provided information that anything under 300ms requires no additional testing and is not a risk for sudden or subtle incapacitation.

Fact #6 : FAA Considered Long PR Interval Normal Before COVID-19 Vaccines

The FAA had earlier released a document that said that a first-degree AV block with PR interval between 0.21 and 0.29 seconds is considered normal.

That document was published on 3 July 2019 – more than 5 months before the first COVID-19 outbreak in China, and more than 17 months before the first COVID-19 vaccine was approved!

Fact #6 : American College of Cardiology Approves Of New FAA Guidelines

Dr. Richard Kovacs, chief medical officer at the America College of Cardiology (ACC), said that the updated FAA criteria for widening ECG parameters for first-degree AV block is consistent with ACC guidelines.

The FAA’s updated criteria for widening the ECG parameters regarding AV Block are reasonable and consistent with ACC guideline recommendations.

Fact #7 : FAA Refutes Claims Of Complications From COVID-19 Vaccines

The FAA’s federal air surgeon has also determined that the Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and Novavax COVIC-19 vaccines are safe for its pilots and air traffic controllers.

The FAA also refuted claims that COVID-19 vaccines have caused accidents or incapacitation of pilots:

The FAA has no evidence of aircraft accidents or incapacitations caused by pilots suffering medical complications associated with COVID-19 vaccine.

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“.

Was Lisa Marie Presley Vaccinated Against COVID-19?

After Lisa Marie Presley died suddenly from cardiac arrest, people are sharing a screenshot of her saying she had no regrets getting vaccinated against COVID-19!

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

 

Claim : Lisa Marie Presley Got Vaccinated Against COVID-19!

Right after news broke that Lisa Marie Presley collapsed and died suddenly from cardiac arrest, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that singer-songwriter and the only child of Elvis Presley was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

As proof, many are now sharing a screenshot of what they said was her Facebook post on March 12, 2022, in which Lisa Marie Presley allegedly said she had “no regrets” getting the COVID-19 vaccine!

The last two years have been years of significant change in our lives. The COVID-19 didn’t only take our jobs and security, it took our lives.

The idea of having a regular life like we used to, going out with family and friends and having quality time with them, motivated me to get vaccinated because I’m not only protecting myself, I’m also protecting others.

|I can’t lie, I was nervous initially, but I made my decision and I have no regrets!

To be informed about how best to protect ourselves and our loved ones is the smartest thing we can do. I chose the vaccine. Why did you decide to get vaccinated?

The vaccines prevent serious illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccines are free, even if you don’t have health insurance or aren’t a U.S. citizen.

Truth : Lisa Marie Presley Did Not Post About Getting COVID-19 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 : That Viral Message Was Not Posted By Lisa Marie Presley

The viral message about not regretting getting the COVID-19 vaccine was not posted by Lisa Marie Presley – the American singer-songwriter, and the only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley.

It was actually posted by a beauty and fashion blogger called Lisa Marie, who posted it on March 13, 2020.

Fact #2 : Lisa Marie Posted The Message With Her Photo

Some of you may think that it could have been a mistake. After all, Lisa Marie sounds very much like Lisa Marie Presley, no? Potayto, pohtato? Innocent mistake maybe?

I’m afraid, not. When Lisa Marie posted her message about getting vaccinated against COVID-19, she posted her photo – TWO of them in fact.

The person who took the screenshot would have noticed them.  Yet he/she cropped out the photo of Lisa Marie, and only took the screenshot of her text.

Why would anyone do that? Why???

Fact #3 : Hashtags Give Plenty Of Clues

It is odd how people who claim to “know it all” missed the many clues offered by the hashtags in the viral message – #austin #texas #fashion #fashionblogger #austinblogger

Lisa Marie Presley lives in Calabasas, California, not Austin, Texas. She was also never a fashion blogger.

It is Lisa Marie, the young fashion blogger, who lives in Austin, Texas…

Fact #4 : They Look Nothing Alike

Perhaps the answer to the question of why would someone take a screenshot of the post without the accompanying photos of Lisa Marie lies in the fact that they look nothing alike.

The two ladies may share similar names, but they look different. Anyone who sees the photos would immediately realise that the post was not written by Lisa Marie Presley.

On the oft-chance that some readers will still dispute that claim, here is a close-up look of both ladies.

Read more : Did Lisa Marie Presley Die Of Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Fact #5 : Unknown If Lisa Marie Presley Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Lisa Marie Presley was vaccinated against COVID-19, as she has never publicly mentioned her vaccination status.

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

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

Until and unless her family reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Lisa Marie Presley received the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #6 : 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!

Did Health Canada’s Adam Exton Die From Vaccine?!

Did Adam Exton – a Health Canada director – just die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

Updated @ 2022-12-28 : Added Adam Exton’s cousin’s TikTok video and statement
Originally posted @ 2022-12-19

 

Claim : Health Canada’s Adam Exton Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Adam Exton died suddenly while swimming, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the Health Canada Director of Parliamentary Affairs was a victim of COVID-19 vaccine SADS!

Here are some examples on social media:

Peter A. McCullough : His family should come out and tell the public if he took them, what brand, and when.

Family silence on sudden deaths is compounding public health fears. #courageousdiscourse

A 35yr old who was ‘Director of Parliamentary Affairs at Health Canada’ during the pandemic, part of the leadership team that led Canada’s health response to COVID-19. Died suddenly and unexpectedly 🤐🇨🇦

Truth : Adam Exton Did Not Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all politician 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 : Adam Exton Died On December 9, 2022

First, let’s establish some basic facts about Adam Exton.

Adam Exton (born Adam William Exton on July 28, 1987) passed away on December 9, 2022, at the age of 35. He left behind his girlfriend, Reesha, father Allan Exton, mother Wendy Exton, and brother Bradley Exton.

He was a political staffer who became the Director of Parliamentary Affairs at Health Canada, and was part of the leadership team that led Canada’s health response to COVID-19.

Fact #2 : Adam Exton’s Death Was Publicly Announced

Despite claims that the “media was trying to cover up” his death, Adam Exton’s death was publicly announced in no less than four public obituaries, and even a mention in Politico!

  1. Mention In Politico : Farewells:ADAM EXTON, director of parliamentary affairs at Health Canada, has died at age 35.
  2. Obituary from Barrietoday
  3. Obituary from SNBC
  4. Obituary from Arbor Memorial
  5. Obituary from Ottawa Citizen

A number of his former colleagues and friends also posted about his death on Twitter. Hardly a gag order on his death, by any measure.

Recommended : Did Charlbi Dean Kriek Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : His Cousin Says He Did Not Die From COVID-19 Or Vaccine

On 23 December 2022, Eileen Marie posted a TikTok video, refuting conspiracy theories about her cousin’s death, saying that it had nothing to do with either COVID-19 or the COVID-19 vaccines.

I am Adam Exton’s cousin. Originally, I was gonna make a video about how devastated I was that my cousin died.

But when I googled his name to get photos for the video, I saw that there were people making conspiracy theories about his death. So I am here to set the record straight and clear up this bullshit.

Adam did not die from anything related to COVID-19. He did not die from the vaccine. It had absolutely nothing to do with that. We chose to keep his cause of death private out of respect to Adam and that’s it.

The fact that you are using my cousin’s death to justify your stupid conspiracy theories is beyond disgusting. Our family is devastated. We’re hurt. We’re upset that he’s gone. This is the last thing we need.

Adam Exton did not die from anything even remotely related to COVID or the vaccine. So lay off. Just stop.

Stop spreading lies about my cousin #adamexton #canada #fyp #foryou #greenscreen

♬ My Heart Will Go On (Titanic) – Maliheh Saeedi & Faraz Taali

Fact #4 : Adam Exton Likely Committed Suicide

Adam Exton’s family did not reveal his cause of death, but they asked that donations be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), and said that the organisation was very important to him.

That is as clear a hint as anything that Adam Exton had mental health issues, and likely committed suicide.

In memory of Adam, donations can be made to the CMHA , an organization that was very important to him.

Quito Maggi – the President and CEO of Mainstreet Public Research, tweeted about Adam Exton’s passing, and hinted that Adam Exton took his own life.

Ottawa is a tough place for staffers, I know. It’s a fun life but it also full of pressures and demands.

For young people like Adam, the pressure to succeed, to get ahead, move up, is tremendous. It takes a toll, I know.

So please, take a moment today to remember Adam and his service to his community, to his country and to his party. Rest in peace

When three antivaxxers claimed that Adam Exton died from the COVID-19 vaccine, he refuted their claims.

The young man did not die due to vaccination, if you can’t tell from the context of my tweets or his obituary his cause of death then you are an insensitive asshole

Dakota Burgin – the Senior Communications Advisor at the Office of the Canadian Minister of Labour, also suggested that Adam Exton had mental health issues and died from suicide.

My friend Adam passed away late last week. He gave his adult life to this community.

He fought personal battles at the same time as national ones.

Canadian Member of Parliament Patty Hajdu also suggested that Adam Exton was struggling and potentially had “problematic substance use”.

Despite the ways Adam contributed, he struggled too, like many others may be right now. The pandemic was traumatizing for so many. So many things need to change so that people who are living with poor mental health or problematic substance use can get effective care.

Lastly, his friend and former colleague, Elyse Banham posted that she regretted not connecting with him when he tried to reach out to her a month ago.

Adam Exton was a friend and former colleague. In recent years, we had not been as close and when he reached out about a month ago, I regret not reading the signs more clearly. Im grieving this loss and encouraging everyone to check in on their loved ones and friends.

Fact #5 : Claims Of People Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

So far, claims of deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here are the latest dozen I personally fact-checked:

Was Celine Dion Disabled By Vaccine Side Effect?!

Was Celine Dion disabled by a known COVID-19 vaccine side effect called Stiff People Syndrome?!

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

 

Claim : Celine Dion Was Disabled By Known Vaccine Side Effect!

Right after Celine Dion announced that she was suffering from a rare condition called Stiff People Syndrome, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that Canadian singer was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

]

Celine Dion was an enthusiastic advocate for Covid “vaccines” but “stiff person syndrome” is a noted adverse reaction to these jabs. I am not saying it’s what caused her problem but it does seem quite the coincidence don’t you think?

Celine Dion was diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome and what do you know, it’s on page 8 of Pfizers adverse events from the covid vaccine. I don’t know if she’s vaccinated or not #NEWS #Twitter #FYP #BREAKING #NewsBreak #NEW #trend #Trending #Newsfile #BreakingNews

Even the infamous anti-vaxxer who is fully-vaccinated, Steve Kirsch, claimed that Celine Dion got her stiff person syndrome from the vaccine.

Celine Dion finally revealed she has stiff person syndrome, which is so rare, it’s only found in 1 in a million people. Did she just get unlucky? Nope. She got vaccinated.

Pfizer knew about this potential side effect likely before Celine Dion was vaccinated, but they have no duty to disclose that because hey, it’s a safe and effective vaccine with only mild side effects. The FDA simply looks the other way for safety issues. That’s the way science is done.

Pfizer knew about SPS in February 2021 and the FDA knew about it on Aprile 2021. But the FDA isn’t going to warn anyone about all these side effects because that would create vaccine hesitancy.

Thanks to Amy Kelly of dailyclout.io, we know that SPS was reported in Pfizer’s postmarketing documents on page 37, which is also page 8 of Appendix 1. Being in this document indicates that Pfizer was aware of it no later than 2/28/21, and the FDA knew about it no later than April 2021.

So the FDA and Pfizer clearly know and told the public nothing. They aren’t liable for any damages even if they didn’t give anyone informed consent by revealing all the side effects.

I don’t know if Celine got the Pfizer vaccine or not, but the side effect profile of the other vaccines is even worse, so my arguments apply no matter what vaccine Celine got.

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

 

Truth : Celine Dion Was Not Disabled By Known Vaccine Side Effect!

It’s now 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 : Celine Dion Had Been Suffering For A Long Time

Celine Dion (born Céline Marie Claudette Dion on 30 March, 1968) announced in an emotional video on 8 December 2022, that she had been struggling with health issues for a long time.

She did not mention how long ago she started experiencing muscle spasms, but they became so “severe and persistent” that on 19 October 2021, she delayed her Las Vegas residency. Then on 15 January 2022, she was forced to cancel the US and Canadian concerts from 9 March to 22 April 2022.

It was only recently that the muscle spasms Celine Dion was suffering from was diagnosed as Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) – a rare neurological disorder with features of an autoimmune disease.

I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time. And it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through.

Recently I’ve been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called Stiff Person Syndrome which affects something like one-in-a-million people.

While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all of the spasms I’ve been having.

Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to.

As a result, she was forced to reschedule her Spring 2023 shows to 2024, and cancel eight of her summer 2023 shows.

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause Stiff Person Syndrome

Many anti-vaccination activists are pointing out that Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) is one of the 1,291 Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) found in 9 pages of a Pfizer document that was released by the FDA.

As I explained back in March 2022, the “List of Adverse Events of Special Interest” (AESI) is 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 when vaccinated people send in their reports through VAERS or the Yellow Card systems.

Just because Stiff Person Syndrome is in the AESI list does not mean the vaccine causes it. It is just one of the many adverse events Pfizer wanted their post-authorisation safety teams to look out for.

To be clear – there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can possibly cause Stiff Person Syndrome.

Fact #3 : AESI List Is Generic + Includes Irrelevant Adverse Events

While anti-vaccination activists keep insisting that the AESI list is a list of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine side effects, that’s nonsense.

The AESI list is generic and not specific to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, because it’s determined before clinical trials even begin!

That’s why the AESI list includes diseases caused by other viruses – Herpes, MERS, Varicella; as well as “exposure to SARS-CoV-2” and other “communicable disease”.

The list also included 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 #4 : Unknown If Celine Dion Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Anti-vaccination activists claim that Celine Dion was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19. However, there is no evidence of that, as she never publicly revealed her vaccination status.

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

Until and unless we know her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that she was disabled by the COVID-19 vaccine is lying to you.

Fact #5 : 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 Doug Brignole Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did former Mr Universe Doug Brignole die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

Updated @ 2022-10-27 : Added Doug Brignole’s official cause of death, and additional details
Originally posted @ 2022-10-17

 

Claim : Doug Brignole Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Doug Brignole died at 62 years of age, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the former Mr Universe and Mr America bodybuilder died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS)!

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

Doug Brignole said “If I die, you are right” because he was super fit and healthy and he knew that the only way he would die would be if the vaccine was poison. And he died. Therefore the people saying the vaccine is poison were fucking right.

Doug Brignole (1960 – 2022) R.I.P: According to Doug, those who have been saying the “vaccines are safe and effective” should now admit that they were misled, tell the world who misled you, so that other people can benefit by ignoring those fear mongers.

Steve Kirsch : The clear conclusion: the vaccines are unsafe. I was right.

Truth : Doug Brignole Died From COVID-19, Not 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 : Doug Brignole Died From COVID-19!

Doug Brignole (born Douglas Brignole on December 15, 1959) passed away on Thursday, October 13, 2022 – at 62 years of age, just two months shy of his 63rd birthday.

At that time, he was getting ready to make a special appearance at the AAU Mr Universe contest in Las Vegas, on October 22.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner conducted an autopsy of Doug Brignole’s body to determine his cause of death as Case number 2022-10791.

Doug Brignole’s cause of death was just announced as COVID-19, complicated by Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease.

So there you have it – confirmation that Doug Brignole did NOT die from COVID-19 vaccine complications or side effects.

Fact #2 : Doug Brignole Was Fully Vaccinated

As a fitness and bodybuilding guru, Doug Brignole was very particular about his health. He read up on the COVID-19 vaccines, and was firmly behind the science.

In fact, he posted in April 5, 2021, that he just received his COVID-19 vaccine and that everyone should use him as a “test”, to see if the vaccine was safe or dangerous.

I’m vaccinated ! Well, the first of two. Let’s get this done so we can get back to traveling, going to concerts, and having fun.

My vaccine was yesterday, and I had no problem with it. My deltoid was a bit sore, but otherwise fine. We’re all in this together, so let’s do our share to beat it.

I have enough confidence in the vaccine, based on my research, to get it done. Those of you who think the vaccine kills people can use me as a test.

If I die, you were right. If I don’t die, and have no ill effects, you were wrong, and should admit it (at least to yourselves).

Better yet, you should admit to the world who misled you, so other people can benefit by avoiding those fear mongers.

Doug Brignole did not suffer any significant side effects, or die from his COVID-19 vaccination that he took in April 2021.

The very fact that he was fit and getting ready for a special Mr Universe appearance proves that the vaccine had no deleterious effect on his fitness or health.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Doug Brignole Received Bivalent Booster Dose

Anti-vaccination proponent Steve Kirsch, who is ironically fully-vaccinated, claim that someone who knew Doug Brignole told him that he received the latest (bivalent) booster dose less than a week before he died.

While that is possible, there is currently ZERO EVIDENCE that Doug Brignole received the bivalent booster dose just a few days before he died. Even Kirsch himself admitted that Brignole’s girlfriend refused to talk to him about this.

As we have seen, Doug Brignole is not shy about telling people when he got vaccinated, and would have no qualms sharing that he received the latest bivalent booster dose.

So it is peculiar that he did not post about getting the bivalent booster dose, at all. Unless Steve Kirsch can actually provide any actual evidence, we will have to chalk this up to the same old Kirsch-style boastful but baseless claims.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccine Is Not A Force Field

Inevitably, anti-vaccination activists will now point to Doug Brignole’s death from COVID-19 as evidence that the vaccines don’t work.

COVID-19 vaccines work. They just do not function like a force field that repels the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as antivaxxers claim they should work.

Instead, they are training boot camps for your immune system, offering facsimiles of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to give it the opportunity to learn how to identify and defeat the real coronavirus.

While that training will protect the vast majority of vaccinated people from severe disease or death from COVID-19, it is not 100% efficacious.

This is partly because antibody levels will wane over time (hence, the need for booster shots), and partly because the COVID-19 virus is constantly mutating.

Therefore, some vaccinated people like Doug Brignole will still catch COVID-19, and develop severe illness and even die. But their risk is far less than that of the unvaccinated.

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

Doug Brignole was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19 more than 18 months ago. That’s 1.5 years ago.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #7 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

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

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

Gwen Casten : Cause of Sudden Death NOT Vaccine!

US Congressman Sean Casten just revealed the cause of his daughter’s sudden death, confirming that Gwen Casten did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

 

Claim : Gwen Casten suffered Sudden Death from vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that the Gwen Casten died suddenly in her sleep, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that the 17 year-old daughter of US Congressman Sean Casten died from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome!

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

Fully vaccinated is why she died of Sudden Cardiac Arrhythmia all of a sudden this has become reason for Deaths since COVID-19 vaccines started SO ITS THE CAUSE

Gwen Casten, 17, has died. To Senator Casten, this is a terrible, heartbreaking day. Her Twitter account has been scrubbed of all of her Covid tweets, and her vaccine tweets. If you think my post is cruel, learn how to use VAERS.

It’s called SIDS in babies – didn’t exist pre vaccine no liability clause/ increase in jabs on the schedule.

Shld we expect more babies to die suddenly in their sleep?

Recommended : Did Gwen Casten Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

Truth : Vaccine SADS was NOT cause of death for Gwen Casten!

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 : Gwen Casten Died Of Sudden Cardiac Arrhythmia

Gwen Casten passed away in her sleep on Monday, June 13, 2022 at her home in Chicago, Illinois.

At that time, her family did not reveal any cause of death, allowing anti-vaccination activists like tech millionaire Steve Kirsch to claim that she died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

That changed on Friday, October 7 when the Casten family issued a statement, revealing that Gwen died of a sudden cardiac arrhythmia – an irregular heart beat that caused her heart to stop.

The truth is finally revealed – the cause of death for Gwen Casten was sudden heart failure caused by a cardiac arrhythmia, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

Gwen was a healthy 2022 teenager. She ate well, exercised, got regular check-ups, didn’t suffer from any behavioral health issues, and had close relationships with family and friends. She was fully vaccinated, and quarantined after occasional positive, asymptomatic COVID tests during the omicron wave. She had just come home from an evening with friends, went to bed and didn’t wake up.

We are heartbroken, but we are not unique. Sudden, unexplained heart-failure among young, healthy people is rare but real. We are left grasping at the wrong end of random chance.

We are grateful for the outpouring of love we’ve received over these past months. We’ve cried again over each of your letters, messages, meals, and flowers, but they are appreciated. We are also grateful for the donations to the Downers Grove North Friends of Fine Arts and March for Our Lives, causes that Gwen was actively engaged in during high school. It is a comfort to know how many lives Gwen touched over her 17 years.

She had a big, beautiful, kind, loving heart. And it stopped, as all must.

None of us know when our last heartbeat will come. The best we can hope for is that when our loved ones do pass, we will have no regrets about the time we were lucky enough to share.

So hug the folks you love a little harder today. Be present in their lives. And spread your love a little farther. Because in the end, it’s all that remains.

Recommended : Why Vaccine SADS Is Not Likely Coolio’s Cause Of Death

Fact #2 : Gwen Casten Was Healthy Before Her Sudden Death

As the Casten family pointed out – Gwen had regular check-ups and was healthy before her sudden death.

That tells us that she was not suffering from vaccine-related side effects like myocarditis or pericarditis, which would have left her breathless and fatigued, with chest pains, etc.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists claim, COVID-19 vaccines do not cause people to suddenly die in their sleep.

Fact #3 : Vaccine Protected Gwen Casten

Gwen Casten was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, and her family pointed out that it protected her against the coronavirus.

When she was infected during the Omicron wave, her earlier vaccination not only protected her against severe illness, she was asymptomatic.

Fact #4 : SUDC / SUDIC Existed Long Before COVID-19 Vaccines

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that sudden unexplained death in young people and children never occurred before COVID-19 vaccines.

Children who appear perfectly healthy can and do die for no known reason. Such unexplained deaths in children are common enough that there is a term for it – Sudden Unexplained Death In Childhood (SUDC / SUDIC).

SUDC is most prevalent in toddlers (1-4 years old) and children in their late teens (15-19 years old). Nearly all children with SUDC were sleeping before becoming unresponsive, and were in state of usual good health.

The United States alone reported approximately 400 cases of SUDC every single year, before COVID-19 vaccines were invented or administered.

Globally, over 50,000 children in good health die suddenly every year, for unknown reasons, long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

SUDC statistics for England and Wales from 2011 to 2020 showed NO INCREASE in SUDC cases, clearly demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SUDC.

Fact #5 : SADS Is An Inherited Heart Condition

It is ludicrous to claim that COVID-19 vaccines cause sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS), because SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

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

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.

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.

Note : There is no 2021 data until sometime in December 2022. The 2020 data was only released on 22 December 2021.

Vaccination in the United Kingdom started on 8 December 2020, with over a million doses administered by end of the month. Despite (false) claims that the vaccines cause SADS, that did not result in an increase in SADS cases.

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

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Gwen Casten died about a year after her last COVID-19 vaccination. She 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 #7 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Gwen Casten obviously underwent an autopsy for her cause of death to be confirmed to be sudden heart failure from a cardiac arrhythmia. It would have revealed if an earlier vaccine injury caused her death in some way.

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

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

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

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

Fact #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 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.

Carlos Santana Collapsed From Dehydration, Not Vaccine!

Carlos Santana collapsed on stage from dehydration, not from COVID-19 vaccine side effects!

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

 

Claim : Carlos Santana Collapsed From Vaccine Side Effects!

On Tuesday, June 5, 2022, Carlos Santana collapsed on stage while performing at the Pine Knob Music Theatre in Clarkson, Michigan.

Medics rushed to treat Santana on stage after he passed out, but he managed to wave at the audience as he was wheeled away.

Almost immediately, people started claiming that Santana collapsed due to the COVID-19 vaccine side effects. Here are some examples on social media :
