A friend of mine, who lives in an assisted care facility, recently sent me a fact sheet published by Pfizer-BioNTech, entitled: Emergency Use Authorization (ELIA) of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 Vaccine to prevent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19). Essentially she wanted my opinion about whether it was a good idea for her to take the “vaccine” when it became available.
The fact sheet contains valuable information. While the title (listed above) indicates the vaccine prevents the virus, inside the body of the document is the following: “The Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine is an unapproved vaccine that MAY (emphasis is mine) prevent Covid -19.” How safe and effective is it?
Page two lists who and who should not take the vaccine. For example, the recipient should tell the provider if they have allergies, are pregnant, and other pertinent medical conditions and medicines. You should NOT (emphasis theirs) take it if you have had a severe allergic reaction to previous doses of this vaccine or any ingredient in the vaccine. The ingredients are listed, with the first being mRNA lipids. How safe is it?
Page three gives us some additional information: “In clinical trials, approximately 20,000 individuals 16 years of age and older have received at least 1 dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine.” (It gives no other information as to how many actually received the two dosages required, and how old the oldest recipient is, or what kind of reactions those individuals had.) It did not tell the results of the animal trials because there were none. (IF you take the vaccine, you will be their lab rat.) How safe is it?
What are the benefits of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 Vaccine? In ongoing clinical trials, the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-10 vaccine has been shown to prevent Covid-19 following 2 doses given 3 weeks apart. (Previous statement included the words “may prevent”.) The duration of protection against Covid-19 is currently unknown. So how effective is it?
A list of possible side effects followed, including that those listed may not be all the possible side effects. Death was not listed, even though several deaths have been reported. On page four, information was given on how to report any adverse effects to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). So how safe is it?
Another important item on page four: The Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine does not contain SARS-CoV-2 and cannot give you Covid-19. The definition of a vaccine: a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies. This jab causes the body to produce proteins. Antibodies kill viruses; proteins insulate viruses, so how effective is it?
Page five gives websites and telephone numbers to learn more about the vaccine, including where vaccine information will be recorded. In addition, information was given about the CICP (Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program), a federal program that may help pay for costs of medical care if you are injured by the vaccine. Hopefully, the reader will know that the pharmaceutical companies are protected from being sued by the National Childhood Injury Act of 1986. How safe is it?
Also on page five, the fact sheet reiterates that the vaccine has not undergone the same type of review as an FDA-approved product, stating again that the product may be effective to prevent Covid-19. How safe and effective is it?
My friend in the assisted living facility has decided to take the vaccine. Apparently the fear propaganda she hears daily on the television is a more effective tool to aid in her decision than the information offered by the pharmaceutical company, or any other information that might come her way. She is totally misinformed about the number of deaths, and has no idea that cases do not always indicate infection. Incorrect PCR test results are something that she has never heard about. She fails to understand the difference between dying from Covid rather than dying with Covid. Furthermore, she has not talked to her own doctor about the vaccine.
Another friend that has taken the vaccine indicates that he was given a 20 page information sheet AFTER receiving the vaccine. Again, fear of the disease and hope of a better tomorrow were the factors that influenced his decision to take the vaccine.
There are hundreds of doctors, scientists, and other medical workers who have advised people to avoid the vaccine. Unfortunately most of them are not government bureaucrats (with incestuous ties to big pharmaceutical companies) or media talking heads (on the payroll per se of big pharma), and the voice of dissent has been silenced. However, Dr. Peter Yeadon, a former executive and scientist at Pfizer (UK), has spoken out vehemently against the vaccine, but his words have been basically ignored by the mainstream media.
While the mantra of safe and effective vaccine has been touted for years, the truth is that they may be for some people. For others, they may mean temporary or permanent injuries or even death. Is it worth the risk? Those are the decisions individuals should make with informed consent.
