Could the Covid Vaccine Be the Next Vioxx ?
by Jeffrey Dach MD
If you have been following the VAERS reporting system, you probably noticed a sudden jump in mortality when the COVID vaccines were given emergency use authorization. (See above chart, red arrow). This was reviewed by the “authorities”, who found that NONE of the deaths were actually related to the vaccine.
CDC and FDA Reviewed 1600 deaths after Covid Vaccine. Not a SINGLE ONE was Caused by the Vaccine !!!
This is the released a report on deaths and other serious symptoms after COVID-19 vaccination after looking at 1,637 reported deaths. The report says:
“CDC and FDA physicians review each case report of death as soon as notified and CDC requests medical records to further assess reports. A review of available clinical information including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records revealed no evidence that vaccination contributed to patient deaths.” (4-7)
How to Make a More Believable Lie
Perhaps we should give a little advice to the CDC and FDA. Next time, use a little common sense, and make the lie more believable. Say, for example, make the number of CAUSAL deaths Three or Four hundred out of the FOUR THOUSAND. Although still a lie, it is a more believable lie.
Dr Jessica Rose has Done the Work of the FDA and CDC
Dr. Jessica Rose reviewed the same VAERS mortality data and came up with the opposite conclusion, YES, all these deaths were caused by the the vaccine. The ignored piece of information is the timing of the deaths within a few days after the vaccine. This timing is highly significant, and indicates vaccine causality, a small piece of information conveniently ignored by our esteemed committee convened by the FDA and CDC authorities.(1-2)
What is Causing The High Rate of Adverse Effects ?
The Spike Protein is Pathogenic, Causes Blood Clots
It is now accepted by mainstream medicine that the spike protein is the pathogenic part of the virus which is causing the platelet activation and blood clotting. One might therefore wonder if the spike protein induced by the COVID vaccine is responsible for the blood clots seen in the reported VAERS cases.(24-27)(41)
Indeed, a number of doctors and scientists have pointed to this obvious connection, raising the alarm and asking for a halt to the vaccine rollout. One of them is Dr Larry Palevsky:
Discussion of Spike Protein in Vaccines from Dr. Larry Palevsky:
The spike protein is not naturally occurring… it is a man made weapon. It is not a virus. It is attached to a virus. This was never a flu like illness…rather, it is a poisoning of the blood. Spike protein can attach to receptors all over the body.brain heart lungs kidneys intestines female reproductive system. The Spike protein is responsible for what makes people sick. Why, in God’s name, are we OK with injecting something into our body that will cause all of us to make spike protein ? The very part of the so called weapon that was creating the illness, and the group of symptoms in the first place. End Quote Courtesy of Dr. Larry Palevsky
Another doctor who voiced concerns about the Spike Protein, Dr J. Patrick Whelan MD PhD who says in a public submission to the FDA:
“I am concerned about the possibility that the new vaccines aimed at creating immunity against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein have the potential to cause microvascular injury to the brain, heart, liver and kidneys in a way that does not currently appear to be assessed in safety trials of these potential drugs… it appears that the viral spike protein that is the target of the major SARS-CoV-2 vaccines is also one of the key agents causing the damage to distant organs that may include the brain, heart, lung, and kidney….“ (3)
Another is Dr. Peter McCullough from Baylor Medical center in this May 18, 2021 publication: (26)
“The recently identified role of SARS-CoV-2 glycoprotein Spike for inducing endothelial damage characteristic of COVID-19, even in absence of infection, is extremely relevant given that most of the authorized vaccines induce the production of Spike glycoprotein in the recipients. Given the high rate of occurrence of adverse effects, and the wide range of types of adverse effects that have been reported to date, as well as the potential for vaccine-driven disease enhancement, Th2-immunopathology, autoimmunity, and immune evasion, there is a need for a better understanding of the benefits and risks of mass vaccination, particularly in the groups that were excluded in the clinical trials. Despite calls for caution, the risks of SARS-CoV-2 vaccination have been minimized or ignored by health organizations and government authorities.“(26)

Johnson and Johnson (J and J) Vaccine Halted for Blood Clots
The J and J Vaccine was halted briefly because of blood clots in the cerebral venous system, easily seen on MRI scans of the brain (see below image). The Astra-Zeneca vaccine was banned in 18 European countries because of blood clots. Indeed, blood clots have been reported for all the Covid Vaccines. These blood clots can occur any where. If they occur in the cerebral arteries, the result is stroke. If they occur in the coronary arteries, the result is heart attack.(29) If they occur in the mesenteric vessels of the gut, the result is dead bowel, requiring an emergency bowel resection operation.(8-9)
Vaccine Induced Thrombocytopenia
Another dreaded adverse side effect is vaccine induced thrombocytopenia (low Platelets) . Shortly after vaccination, the patient notices petechiae (small spots) showing up in the skin caused by antibodies to PF4 (Platelet Factor 4) resulting in immune destruction of the platelets. This may progress to platelet counts so low as to result in fatal bleeding. Indeed, a long time personal friend in our community died after vaccination a few months ago with very low platelet count and uncontrollable bleeding.(30-39)
Another case was reported in the local newspaper, a 56 year old OB/Gyne doctor at Mount Sinai hospital in Miami died of vaccine induced thrombocytopenia. This case made an impact on me because I live just north of Miami Beach.
Dr. Gregory Michael, 56, an OB-GYN at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, died after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke apparently resulting from a lack of platelets.(10-19)
As is common for these cases, the coroner ruled the doctor died of “natural causes”, another cover up. There are many other similar post vaccination deaths reported in the news media. (10-19)
Vaccine Immune Enhancement Leads to Death after Re-challenge with Virus
Vaccine immune enhancement is a serious adverse side effect identified from early animal experiments with corona virus vaccines in which all animals died post vaccination after the animals were re-challenged (re-exposed) with the corona virus. Not a good omen for the vaccine. Perhaps this is why animal studies were “skipped” for the current batch of COVID-19 vaccines, in which, instead of doing the preliminary animal studies, this was deemed unnecessary. So this is what we have now: human clinical trials without preliminary animal studies. If you were wondering if Vaccine Immune Enhancement is happening for the COVID-19 vaccines, just take a look at the newspaper where a number of such cases have been reported. (20-23)
For Covid Recovered Patients, You Have Natural Immunity Better than Any Vaccine !
Another important point made by Dr Peter McCullough in his interview is that Covid infection confers long lasting “natural immunity“, more robust than the vaccine immunity. (92-93) Another example of this type of immunity is seen with measles. For those who had childhood measles, these people have life-long natural immunity to measles which is more robust than the measles vaccine. There is no need for a measles vaccine in children who have had measles. This is a basic rule of virology which is true for all viral disease, and holds true for COVID 19 as well. This robust “long-lived immunity” to COVID after a COVID infection was confirmed in a recent study by JS Turner in Nature: “SARS-CoV-2 infection induces long-lived bone marrow plasma cells in humans.”
Dr. JS Turner writes:
“Overall, we show that SARS-CoV-2 infection induces a robust antigen-specific, long-lived humoral immune response in humans.” (92-93)
Dr Turner’s findings were confirmed by a recent Cleveland Clinic study in which 2579 employees were followed for 5 months after a previous COVID 19 infection. None of the 2579 experienced a new COVID 19 infection, including 1359 who declined vaccination. This indicates the 1359 who declined vaccination were protected with robust natural immunity from previous infection. The authors write:
“Cumulative incidence of COVID-19 was examined among 52238 employees in an American healthcare system. COVID-19 did not occur in anyone over the five months of the study among 2579 individuals previously infected with COVID-19, including 1359 who did not take the vaccine.” (97-99)
Superior Sagital Sinus Thrombosis
When a number of cases of Superior Sagital Sinus Thrombosis after vaccination were reported, this could not be swept under the rug, and the CDC and FDA were forced to admit this is indeed caused by the vaccine. I would suggest this is just the tip of the ice berg and large numbers of cases of blood clots at varied anatomic sites will accumulate over time until they can not be denied. (8)

Three Gain of Function Changes to the Spike Protein-Very Unnatural
In his interview with Del Big Tree on the High Wire, Dr Fleming points out three gain of function changes to the Spike Protein (40):
- HIV Glycoprotein 120
- P-R-R-A (Proline-Arginine-Arginine-Alanine) Amino Acid Insertion
- Prion Like Structure
The first item, the HIV glycoprotein 120 has been described by Dr. Pradhan, bioRxiv Jan 2020 as an “unnatural insert” and an indication of man-made manipulation, however, the authors were forced to withdraw their article to maintain the “cover up” narrative that the virus evolved naturally in the wild. (43) You might wonder how an HIV got into this virus “naturally”. It didn’t. It was inserted into the virus by laboratory manipulation.(96)
Let’s look at the second item on the list, the four amino acids (P-R-R-A) inserted into the Spike Protein indicate lab manipulation. For this sequence to evolve in nature, this would require 12 base-pair nucleotide mutations to occur simultaneously for this change in the Spike Protein to evolve naturally (in nature). Of course this is impossible to have 12 mutations at once in the wild. As such, these gain of function changes indicate this is a man made virus, manipulated and released from the lab, most likely the Wuhan lab in China. Dr Fleming shows us the documentation that virology labs in China (Wuhan Institute of Virology headed by Dr. Shi Zheng-Li) and in the US (Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina, and Peter Daszak EcoHealth) were involved in gain of function research funded by the US government (the NIH and NIAID). Dr Fleming suggests that the people involved should be held accountable for creating an unrestricted bio-weapon then unleashed upon mankind. (40)(44)
The Spike Protein Has Been Attenuated and Perfectly Harmless
On the other side of the coin, others have argued that the Spike protein used in the vaccine has been modified and is no longer pathogenic. (28) The vaccine uses an “attenuated” virus, by modifying the spike protein making it harmless. What if the attenuated virus is not really attenuated and is causing all the adverse side effects we are seeing reported in VAERS, explained perfectly by the mechanism of action of the spike protein ? Dr Fleming addresses this counter argument by pointing out the pathogenic N-terminal domain is still in the vaccine induced Spike Protein. (40)
The 1955 Cutter Incident, the “Attenuated” Polio Vaccine that Caused Polio
Is it possible the COVID Vaccine spike protein is not actually attenuated, and still pathogenic? Yes, a previous example is the Cutter Incident during the 1955 Polio Outbreak. Although the vaccine virus was supposedly “attenuated” and harmless, the Cutter Manufactured vaccine actually contained live pathogenic virus, not attenuated harmless virus. Despite warnings from regulators who tested the Cutter polio vaccine in monkeys, finding the vaccine caused paralysis, the flawed vaccine was rolled out. Here is a quote from Dr Carapetis in the British Medical Journal describing this catastrophe and the cover up: (89-90)
In the end, at least 220 000 people were infected with live polio virus in Cutter’s vaccine (including 100 000 contacts of immunized children), 70 000 developed muscle weakness, 164 were severely paralyzed, and 10 died.(89-90)
So, it would appear we having a repeat of the Cutter Incident. The “attenuated” spike protein is still pathogenic and instead of a harmless vaccine, we have a pathogenic vaccine which is causing all the adverse events and deaths reported in the VAERS system.
Is the COVID 19 virus a Man Made Unrestricted Bio-Weapon Produced with US Government Funding ? (40-44)

A Year of Fear Through the Television Mind Control Machine
What is the definition of freedom? True freedom is to be able to think independently and analyze events and information on your own, and come to your own conclusion and beliefs. Of course, freedom of thought is impossible when television is used to program the viewer’s mind to “alter existing beliefs and form new beliefs without the viewer being aware of it”. Here is a quote from Martin at Erupting Mind which explains how this works:
TV is an excellent tool to program the mind…Watching TV puts the viewer into a highly suggestible sleep-like hypnotic state. This provides easy access to the subconscious and…why it is easy to fall asleep while watching television. In a hypnotic state, the information which you are exposed to will be downloaded directly to your subconscious mind where it will alter existing beliefs and form new beliefs without you even being aware of it. (91)
Just turn off the television set and you will regain your mental freedom.
Psychological Messaging Techniques
Margaret Anna Alice in the OFFGuardian describes the psychological messaging techniques used by “the authorities” to induce the compliance of the general public with their draconian COVID measures. These techniques include fear, shame, and peer pressure, all well described time worn techniques used by highly trained professionals who have studied the text books on psychological manipulation of the masses. She writes:(84)
“Several interventions of this type have been woven into the Covid-19 messaging campaign, including fear (inflating perceived threat levels), shame (conflating compliance with virtue) and peer pressure (portraying non-compliers as a deviant minority) – or “affect”, “ego” and “norms”, to use the language of behavioral science.” (84) end Quote
Dr. Gary Sidley gives his analysis of “the language of fear” used throughout past year of the pandemic by “the Authorities” through the “television mind control machine” to induce compliance. He writes this is an ethically dubious practice commonly used by totalitarian regimes such as communist China:(85)
It is questionable whether a civilized society should knowingly increase the emotional discomfort of its citizens as a means of gaining their compliance. State scientists deploying fear, shame and scapegoating to change minds is an ethically dubious practice that in some respects resembles the tactics used by totalitarian regimes such as China, where the state inflicts pain on a subset of its population in an attempt to eliminate beliefs and behavior they perceive to be deviant.(85) end quote.
You may have noticed that all of these same psychological techniques have been successfully used to manipulate the masses to clamor for an untested experimental vaccine still in clinical trials and already showing the highest mortality for a vaccine ever recorded in the history of medicine.
Another Big Lie
Another “Big Lie” is that people who previously had a COVID infection and recovered uneventfully have no protection from re-infection and therfore need a vaccine. This is untrue. Previous Covid infection confers robust long lasting immunity, which is better than a vaccine. This has been confirmed in a recent study by JS Turner in Nature. (92-93) Other are in agreement . (94-95)
Here is a quote from Dr Florian Krammer, Florian in Lancet 2021. (95)
“The findings of the authors suggest that infection (with COVID-19) and the development of an antibody response provides protection similar to or even better than currently used SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.“
How the CDC Plays with The Numbers
Above Image: Book Cover , Courtesy of How to Lie with Statistics, by Darrell Huff available on Amazon.com
Apparently, the CDC has read Darell Huff’s book, and has shown mastery manipulating the numbers.
In my previous newsletters, we pointed out how the CDC has inflated COVID case numbers by using a PCR cycle threshold above 30, and by inflating Covid Deaths by relaxing the criteria for reporting COVID as the cause of death (on death certificates), so that anyone who dies of unrelated causes, yet has a positive Covid19 PCR test (using the older CT above 30) will be labeled as death from COVID. This is how the young man who dies in a motor cycle accident is labeled death from COVID19. Re-labeling Flu (influenza cases) as COVID is another way to play with the numbers without the general public being aware. And they just did it again, by changing the cycle threshold (CT) to 28 or lower for PCR tests, and for changing the criteria for labeling post-vaccination people as a COVID19 case.
Lowering Cycle Threshold to 28 ONLY FOR VACCINATED PEOPLE
Firstly, the CDC is now lowering the CT value to below 28 when testing samples from vaccinated people who are suspected of having COVID19 after being vaccinated.
Secondly, asymptomatic or mild infections will no longer be recorded as Covid 19 in Vaccinated People
If a vaccinated person has COVID19-like infection with a positive PCR test (cycle threshold under 28), but does not result in hospitalization or death, then the CDC does not recorded this case as COVID-19.
In the unvaccinated, asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic people with a positive PCR test, this will be recorded as COVID19, but not in vaccinated people who must be hospitalized or die to be recorded as COVID19 case. As a result of these new rules, the official CDC records will show Covid19 infection is more prevalent among the unvaccinated than the vaccinated, an obvious and deliberate act of deception. The new rules will make the COVID vaccines look more effective than the really are. Oh well, just another day in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. (86-88)

Dr. David Graham and The Vioxx Scandal
In November 2004, David Graham, associate director for science and medicine at the FDA’s Office of Drug Safety, criticized the FDA’s drug oversight practices during a Senate Finance Committee hearing. During his testimony, Graham made the now well-known remark that the FDA is “virtually defenseless” against another “terrible tragedy and a profound regulatory failure,” such as Merck’s withdrawn arthritis drug Vioxx. Quote courtesy of Lamb Law Office
Nov 8, 2004, Dr David Graham made history when he testified in a Senate hearing on the Vioxx Drug. Dr David Graham said: “the FDA cannot protect the American Public from Bad Drugs!” It took five years and 50,000 deaths from heart attacks, and finally Vioxx was taken off the market. Will the same hold true for the COVID vaccines? How many blood clots and deaths will be required before the COVID vaccine program is discontinued ? (46-48)
Update July 29, 2021: “Worst Case Scenario” for the Vaccine, New Data Shows ADE – Antibody Dependent Enhancement, Interview with Dr. Robert Malone Inventor of the mRNA Vaccine:
My comment: All previous coronavirus vaccines under devlopment for the past 20 years have ended in failure because of ADE. All the animals died after vaccination when rechallenged with the virus. This is called ADE, another way of saying Vaccine Failure. The vaccine doesnt protect from the virus, it makes the viral infection worse, the exact opposite of what we expect a vaccine to do. Dr Malone concludes that the Covid Vaccine Program should be halted immediately.

2) Study Finds Patterns in VAERS Data that Provide Evidence of Causality 05.17.2021 jameslyonsweiler
If vaccine adverse events and deaths following COVID19 vaccination were truly not causally related, there would be an equal number of reports in the days following the vaccine administration. That’s a valid null hypothesis.
Do the data support non-causality? No. A new peer-reviewed study has found deaths clustered near the day of vaccine exposure, which is inconsistent with non-causality, and a dramatic increase in the autoimmune reports associated with COVID19 vaccination, consistent with predictions made by earlier studies predicting specific autoimmmune-related reactions based on the SARS-CoV-2 virus proteins.
The study, by Dr. Jessica Rose, is a report on carefully analyzed data from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, is attached, along with the Editorial introducing it.
The results are numerous and compelling. Since anaphylaxis is known to be caused by COVID19 vaccines, Dr. Rose used anaphylaxis as a positive control, finding the same pattern of clustering of events in time in deaths and in many serious adverse events.
This study will be hotly debated because it drives to the core presumption that the VAERS data resource cannot be used to assess causality. Temporal association is a critical piece of evidence in causality; the test for clustering of the events so near the vaccination event provides a critical test of the hypothesis of causality.
3) Comment from J. Patrick Whelan MD PhD
Posted by the Food and Drug Administration on Dec 9, 2020
On Dec. 8, 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) received a public submission from J. Patrick Whelan, M.D., Ph.D. The submission was in response to the agency’s request for comments regarding vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 in advance of the Dec. 10 meeting when the committee would review the Pfizer/BioNTech (BNT162b2) SARS-CoV-2 vaccine for emergency use authorization (EUA).
Whelan’s training (at Harvard, Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine) includes degrees in biochemistry, medicine and rheumatology. For 20 years, he worked as a pediatric rheumatologist. He currently specializes in treating children with multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C), which has been associated with coronavirus infections.
Whelan in his letter to the FDA:
“I am concerned about the possibility that the new vaccines aimed at creating immunity against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein have the potential to cause microvascular injury to the brain, heart, liver and kidneys in a way that does not currently appear to be assessed in safety trials of these potential drugs.”
While there are pieces to this puzzle that have yet to be worked out, it appears that the viral spike protein that is the target of the major SARS-CoV-2 vaccines is also one of the key agents causing the damage to distant organs that may include the brain, heart, lung, and kidney. Before any of these vaccines are approved for widespread use in humans, it is important to assess in vaccinated subjects the effects of vaccination on the heart (perhaps using cardiac MRI, as Puntmann et al. did). Vaccinated patients could also be tested for distant tissue damage in deltoid area skin biopsies, as employed by Magro et al. As important as it is to quickly arrest the spread of the virus by immunizing the population, it would be vastly worse if hundreds of millions of people were to suffer long-lasting or even permanent damage to their brain or heart microvasculature as a result of failing to appreciate in the short-term an unintended effect of full-length spike protein-based vaccines on these other organs.
Particular caution will be required with regard to the potential widespread vaccination of children before there are any real data on the safety or effectiveness of these vaccines in pediatric trials that are only now beginning.
Over 273 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through May 17, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 4,647 reports of death (0.0017%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine. CDC and FDA physicians review each case report of death as soon as notified and CDC requests medical records to further assess reports. A review of available clinical information, including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records has not established a causal link to COVID-19 vaccines. However, recent reports indicate a plausible causal relationship between the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine and a rare and serious adverse event—blood clots with low platelets—which has caused deaths.

cerebral venous sinus thrombosis
As of April 12, more than 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine have been administered in the U.S. CDC and FDA are reviewing data involving six reported U.S. cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the J&J vaccine. In these cases, a type of blood clot called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) was seen in combination with low levels of blood platelets (thrombocytopenia). All six cases occurred among women between the ages of 18 and 48, and symptoms occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination.
People who have received the J&J vaccine who develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider.
8) See, Isaac, et al. “US Case Reports of Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis With Thrombocytopenia After Ad26. COV2. S Vaccination, March 2 to April 21, 2021.” Jama (2021).
Importance: Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) with thrombocytopenia, a rare and serious condition, has been described in Europe following receipt of the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine (Oxford/AstraZeneca), which uses a chimpanzee adenoviral vector. A mechanism similar to autoimmune heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) has been proposed. In the US, the Ad26.COV2.S COVID-19 vaccine (Janssen/Johnson & Johnson), which uses a human adenoviral vector, received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) on February 27, 2021. By April 12, 2021, approximately 7 million Ad26.COV2.S vaccine doses had been given in the US, and 6 cases of CVST with thrombocytopenia had been identified among the recipients, resulting in a temporary national pause in vaccination with this product on April 13, 2021.
Objective: To describe reports of CVST with thrombocytopenia following Ad26.COV2.S vaccine receipt.
Design, setting, and participants: Case series of 12 US patients with CVST and thrombocytopenia following use of Ad26.COV2.S vaccine under EUA reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) from March 2 to April 21, 2021 (with follow-up reported through April 21, 2021).
Exposures: Receipt of Ad26.COV2.S vaccine.
Main outcomes and measures: Clinical course, imaging, laboratory tests, and outcomes after CVST diagnosis obtained from VAERS reports, medical record review, and discussion with clinicians.
Results: Patients’ ages ranged from 18 to younger than 60 years; all were White women, reported from 11 states. Seven patients had at least 1 CVST risk factor, including obesity (n = 6), hypothyroidism (n = 1), and oral contraceptive use (n = 1); none had documented prior heparin exposure. Time from Ad26.COV2.S vaccination to symptom onset ranged from 6 to 15 days. Eleven patients initially presented with headache; 1 patient initially presented with back pain and later developed headache. Of the 12 patients with CVST, 7 also had intracerebral hemorrhage; 8 had non-CVST thromboses. After diagnosis of CVST, 6 patients initially received heparin treatment. Platelet nadir ranged from 9 ×103/µL to 127 ×103/µL. All 11 patients tested for the heparin-platelet factor 4 HIT antibody by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) screening had positive results. All patients were hospitalized (10 in an intensive care unit [ICU]). As of April 21, 2021, outcomes were death (n = 3), continued ICU care (n = 3), continued non-ICU hospitalization (n = 2), and discharged home (n = 4).
Conclusions and relevance: The initial 12 US cases of CVST with thrombocytopenia after Ad26.COV2.S vaccination represent serious events. This case series may inform clinical guidance as Ad26.COV2.S vaccination resumes in the US as well as investigations into the potential relationship between Ad26.COV2.S vaccine and CVST with thrombocytopenia.
A formerly healthy 43-year-old father from Langley, B.C. — who is in hospital recovering from complications following a rare blood clot — is warning others to watch for signs of trouble after receiving an AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine.
Shaun Mulldoon and his wife Tara say that doctors confirmed to them that he’s a victim of the unusual but dangerous syndrome linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine. The clot in his abdomen will leave him with life-long effects after two metres of his small intestine was removed.
The AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine has been linked to vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT). Symptoms include severe headache, pain, swollen limbs, nausea, vomiting and shortness of breath.
“Seventeen days after my vaccine [I] ended up going into emergency surgery to remove over six feet of my small intestine. I had a massive blood clot. Second surgery two days later to remove more. My surgeon told me it was very close.”
Dr. Gregory Michael Vaccine Induced Immune Thrombocytopenia
10) Local Doctor Who Passed Away After Vaccine Shot Died of Natural Causes: Medical Examiner
Dr. Gregory Michael, who had worked as an OBGYN at Miami Beach’s Mt. Sinai Medical Center for more than a decade, died on January 3rd Published April 8, 2021 • Updated on April 8, 2021 at 7:36 pm
A South Florida doctor who passed away two weeks after receiving his first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine died of natural causes, a medical examiner has ruled.
Dr. Gregory Michael died from complications of immune thrombocytopenia following receipt of the vaccine, according to a Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner’s report released Thursday.
Michael, who had worked as an OBGYN at Miami Beach’s Mt. Sinai Medical Center for more than a decade, died on January 3rd.
According to the report, the 56-year-old had received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Dec. 19, 2020, and was hospitalized on Dec. 22.
His wife, Heidi Neckelmann, said he had begun experiencing strange symptoms several days after receiving the dose, including small spots on his hands and feet.
He was eventually admitted to the ICU with a diagnosis of acute Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), a rare condition in which the body’s immune system mistakingly attacks cell fragments found in the blood known as platelets. In adults, it can be chronic.
“Two days before a last resort surgery, he got a hemorrhagic stroke caused by the lack of platelets that took his life in a matter of minutes,” Neckelmann wrote in a Facebook post.
The medical examiner’s report said there wasn’t enough evidence to show whether the vaccine contributed to Michael’s death.
“Given the history, autopsy, toxicology, and laboratory findings, the cause of death is complications of immune thrombocytopenia following receipt of SARS-CoV-2 vaccine,” the report said. “Based on the circumstances as currently known, the manner of death is natural.”

A doctor died in the United States a little more than two weeks after being vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine, the Daily Mail said, citing his wife. The wife of the late Heidi Neckelmann said that her 56-year-old husband, Dr. Gregory Michael, was vaccinated on 18 December and died 16 days later. “In my mind his death was 100 percent linked to the vaccine. There is no other explanation,” she said as quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. “He was in very good health. He didn’t smoke, he drank alcohol once in a while but only socially. He worked out, we had kayaks, he was a deep sea fisherman,” she added. In addition, according to a recent health check, Gregory Michael was absolutely healthy. Three days after vaccination, small spots began to appear on Gregory Michael’s feet and hands. In response, he went to the emergency room at Mount Sinai. As his blood count was not in the normal ranges, he was admitted to the intensive care unit, according to Heidi Neckelmann. Unfortunately, he suffered a stroke and died.
According to Darren Caprara, director of operations at the Miami-Dade medical examiner’s office, Gregory Michael’s death is the first that the medical examiner’s office has investigated where a COVID-19 vaccine could have played a role.

20) Doctors suspect COVID delayed immune response in young surgeon’s death By Jane Roberts, Daily Memphian Updated: February 12, 2021
A young orthopedic surgeon with OrthoSouth who died early Monday, Feb. 8, may be the nation’s first case of an adult who died of a delayed immune response to COVID and had received the vaccine.
Dr. J. Barton Williams died early Monday at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis. He was 36. MIS is essentially an unchecked immunological response to the virus, said Dr. Scott Strome, executive dean of the College of Medicine at University of Tennessee Health Science Center. “The immune system’s response is to eradicate the virus. One of its most fundamental features is its ability to turn itself off when it’s done,” Strome said. “It has to know when it’s done. It if doesn’t have that, you get an autoimmune situation. Whatever the reason, the body still thinks it has a threat and doesn’t turn itself off. Then you get this systematic inflammation.”
21) Tennessee Doctor Dies Weeks after Receiving 2nd Covid-19 Vaccine Dose; Cause of Death Unknown
Dr. J Barton Williams, who was the Orthopedic Surgeon for OrthoSouth, died on February 8 after he developed the multisystem inflammatory syndrome.
A doctor from Tennessee’s Memphis has died of a COVID-19 related illness. But what makes this case important is the fact that the doctor did not know he had contracted the novel Coronavirus and got the vaccine against the disease.
The healthcare professional, Dr. J Barton Williams, fell ill a few weeks ago before his death. According to reports, Dr. Stephen Threlkeld, who helped to treat Williams, within a shorter period the disease went from diagnosis to death. “It was a matter of days. Just a tragedy,” said Threlkeld.
Threlkeld explained that the immune system attacks the body in many ways and causes multi-organ failure. According to him, the fact that Williams tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies means that he had contracted the virus at one time. But he did not know about it. Later, he took the first shot followed by the second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine weeks before his death.
22) Delhi surgeon who got second Covid vaccine in March dies of virus
Written by Shivam Patel | New Delhi |

Before Dr Anil Kumar Rawat was put on a ventilator at Delhi’s Saroj Hospital, he told a colleague: “I will come out of this. I have been vaccinated, I will come out.” On Saturday morning, the 58-year-old surgeon succumbed to Covid.
He had received the second shot of the Covishield vaccine at the beginning of March, said Dr P K Bhardwaj, the chief executive director
of Saroj Hospital, who had known Dr Rawat since 1994.
After contracting Covid about 10-12 days ago, Dr Rawat was initially in home isolation but had to be shifted to the hospital when his oxygen level started dipping.
23) Dr. Tenpenny Expains In Simple Terms Some Of The Dangers of The Covid-19 “Vaccine” UPDATED with MD Transcript & Additional Links
Partial Informal Transcript Below the Fold
It takes at least 6 weeks from the time you get your injection for the spike antibody to start to develop. So, somewhere between 3 months and quite frankly 20 years. The immunologist I spoke to said that over the next 10 years we are going to see this go on in perpetuity, because it can take anywhere from 2 years to 19 years to get full blown auto-immune disease. I think we will see massive injuries and a lot more deaths starting somewhere between 4 and 18 months from now. This Vaccine will permanently alter your immune system.
When you get this spike antibody in your system it will permanently and irreversibly change your immune system. The messenger RNA is the spike protein to develop an antibody against that spike protein. It means next time you come in contact with a virus the antibody should block you from getting sick. However, not only does it not stop you from getting sick, the antibody itself is going to turn on your body and create havoc and massive auto-immune disease.* It attacks your organs by molecular mimicry.It is a genetic modification technology.
24) April 30, 2021 The novel coronavirus’ spike protein plays additional key role in illness
Salk researchers and collaborators show how the protein damages cells, confirming COVID-19 as a primarily vascular disease
LA JOLLA—Scientists have known for a while that SARS-CoV-2’s distinctive “spike” proteins help the virus infect its host by latching on to healthy cells. Now, a major new study shows that the virus spike proteins (which behave very differently than those safely encoded by vaccines) also play a key role in the disease itself.

SARS-CoV-2 mass vaccination: Urgent questions on vaccine safety that demand answers from international health agencies, regulatory authorities, governments and vaccine developers. Authorea. May 18, 2021.Peter A Mccullough . SARS-CoV2 mass vaccination Urgent questions on vaccine safety
The recently identified role of SARS-CoV-2 glycoprotein Spike for inducing endothelial damage characteristic of COVID-19, even in absence of infection, is extremely relevant given that most of the authorized vaccines induce the production of Spike glycoprotein in the recipients. Given the high rate of occurrence of adverse effects, and the wide range of types of adverse effects that have been reported to date, as well as the potential for vaccine-driven disease enhancement, Th2-immunopathology, autoimmunity, and immune evasion, there is a need for a better understanding of the benefits and risks of mass vaccination, particularly in the groups that were excluded in the clinical trials. Despite calls for caution, the risks of SARS-CoV-2 vaccination have been minimized or ignored by health organizations and government authorities.
27) Salk Institute science paper reveals the covid spike protein is what’s causing deadly blood clots… and it’s in all the covid vaccines (by design)
The upshot of this research is that covid vaccines are inducing vascular disease and directly causing injuries and deaths stemming to blood clots and other vascular reactions. This is all caused by the spike protein that’s deliberately engineered into the vaccines.
28) The Thorny Problem of COVID-19 Vaccines and Spike Proteins
Published On: May 13th, 2021By Glen Pyle
Glen Pyle, PhD is a Professor of Molecular Cardiology at the University of Guelph and an Associate Member of the IMPART Team Canada Investigator Network at Dalhousie Medicine.
Redesigning the Spike Protein
A research team lead by Dr. Barney Graham from the Vaccine Research Center at the NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases created an engineered form of the spike protein that is unable to make the shape change required to effectively bind to cells (5).
The Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, Novavax, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines all use this inactivated spike protein, which means any spike protein that is produced by the vaccine is not able to be activated. This safety-switch limits the ability of the spike protein to bind ACE2 and limits its ability to cause damage.
In addition to engineering the spike protein so it can not be fully activated the protein is tagged with an extra piece called a “transmembrane anchor” (6). The transmembrane anchor allows the spike protein to appear on the surface – or membrane – of the cell, but it is held in place by the anchor. This prevents the spike protein from drifting away and creates a fixed target for the immune system to recognize the foreign protein.
Three Strikes Against Misinformation
The significance of the work by Lei and colleagues has been overshadowed by the concerns raised by vaccine skeptics. Their claims of a looming vaccine catastrophe brought about by vaccine-induced spike proteins fails to consider that the spike protein of vaccines is different than the natural form; that its engineered shape prevents activation; and that multiple elements confine spike protein expression to a highly localized collection of cells whose purpose is to activate the immunity vaccines are designed to produce.

We describe the first Danish case of presumed inflammatory and thrombotic response to vaccination with an adenoviral (ChAdOx1) vector-based COVID-19 vaccine (AZD1222). The case describes a 60-year-old woman who was admitted with intractable abdominal pain 7 days after receiving the vaccine. Computed tomography of the abdomen revealed bilateral adrenal hemorrhages. On the following day, she developed a massive right-sided ischemic stroke and magnetic resonance imaging angiography showed occlusion of the right internal carotid artery. The ischemic area was deemed too large to offer reperfusion therapy. During admission, blood tests showed a remarkable drop in platelet counts from 118,000 to 5000 per μl and a substantial increase in D-dimer. The patient died on the sixth day of hospitalization. Blood tests revealed platelet factor 4 reactive antibodies, imitating what is seen in heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. This may be a novel immune-mediated response to the vaccine.
31) Douxfils, Jonathan, et al. “Hypotheses behind the very rare cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome after SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.” Thrombosis Research (2021).
As of 4 April 2021, a total of 169 cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) and 53 cases of splanchnic vein thrombosis were reported to EudraVigilance among around 34 million people vaccinated in the European Economic Area and United Kingdom with COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca, a chimpanzee adenoviral vector (ChAdOx1) encoding the spike protein antigen of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
32) Tiede, Andreas, et al. “Prothrombotic immune thrombocytopenia after COVID-19 vaccine.” Blood (2021).
We report five cases of prothrombotic immune thrombocytopenia after exposure to the ChAdOx1 vaccine (AZD1222, Vaxzevria) against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Patients presented 5 to 11 days after first vaccination. The spectrum of clinical manifestations included cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), splanchnic vein thrombosis (SVT), arterial cerebral thromboembolism, and thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA). All patients had thrombocytopenia and markedly elevated D-Dimer. Autoantibodies against platelet factor 4 (PF4) were detected in all patients although they had never been exposed to heparin. Immunoglobulin from patient sera bound to healthy donor platelets in an AZD1222-dependant manner, suppressed by heparin. Aggregation of healthy donor platelets by patient sera was demonstrated in the presence of buffer or AZD1222 and was also suppressed by heparin. Anticoagulation alone or in combination with eculizumab or intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG)resolved the pathology in three patients. Two patients had thromboembolic events despite anticoagulation at a time when platelets were increasing after IVIG. In summary, an unexpected autoimmune prothrombotic disorder is described after vaccination with AZD1222. It is characterized by thrombocytopenia and anti-PF4 antibodies binding to platelets in AZD1222-dependent manner. Initial clinical experience suggests a risk of unusual and severe thromboembolic events.

Covid as a BIO Weapon
40) Rumble — IS COVID-19 A BIO-WEAPON?
The origins of #Covid19 are becoming increasingly clear, and Dr. Richard Fleming, cardiologist and researcher walks Del through a shocking paper trail surrounding the SARS-CoV2 virus and its link to Tony Fauci and US funded gain-of-function research.
Dr Fleming; Covid 19 is a Weaponized Bio Weapon. Vaccines: Instead of using attenuated version of virus, they are using the bio weapon spike protein….Just because you can make antiboidies, that is not necessarily a good think. Example: Strep throat antibodies cause rheumatic heart disease. We give antibiotics to prevent these harmful antibodies.
Spuike Protein…Antibody immune enhancement Antibody enhancement spike protein…N terminal domain Paper on site from Japan showed …antibodies to N terminal domain opens the spike protein makes it more infective …. hospitalized patients dont do well.
This N terminal domain is in the vaccine !!!!
People are being inundated with the spike proteins, causing Inflammation and blood clotting… People that are healthy… massive antigen load…make antibodies and T dells…reactions VAAERS reports…1-10% of reported adverse events….Clearly a VAER cover up… we may have 400, 000 deaths already…astronomical numbers…

Development of new vaccine technology has been plagued with problems in the past. The current RNA based SARS-CoV-2 vaccines were approved in the US using an emergency order without extensive long term safety testing. In this paper the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was evaluated for the potential to induce prion-based disease in vaccine recipients. The RNA sequence of the vaccine as well as the spike protein target interaction were analyzed for the potential to convert intracellular RNA binding proteins TAR DNA binding protein (TDP-43) and Fused in Sarcoma (FUS) into their pathologic prion conformations. The results indicate that the vaccine RNA has specific sequences that may induce TDP-43 and FUS to fold into their pathologic prion confirmations. In the current analysis a total of sixteen UG tandem repeats (ΨGΨG) were identified and additional UG (ΨG) rich sequences were identified. Two GGΨA sequences were found. Potential G Quadruplex sequences are possibly present but a more sophisticated computer program is needed to verify these. Furthermore, the spike protein, created by the translation of the vaccine RNA, binds angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), a zinc containing enzyme. This interaction has the potential to increase intracellular zinc. Zinc ions have been shown to cause the transformation of TDP-43 to its pathologic prion configuration. The folding of TDP-43 and FUS into their pathologic prion confirmations is known to cause ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases. The enclosed finding as well as additional potential risks leads the author to believe that regulatory approval of the RNA based vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 was premature and that the vaccine may cause much more harm than benefit
Many have raised the warning that the current epidemic of COVID-19 is actually the result of an bioweapons attack released in part by individuals in the United States government [10,11]. Such a theory is not far fetched given that the 2001 anthrax attack in the US originated at Fort Detrick, a US army bioweapon facility. Because the FBI’s anthrax investigation was closed against the advice of the lead FBI agent in the case, there are likely conspirators still working in the US government. In such a scenario the primary focus of stopping a bioweapons attack must be to apprehend the conspirators or the attacks will never cease. Approving a vaccine, utilizing novel RNA technology without extensive testing is extremely dangerous. The vaccine could be a bioweapon and even more dangerous than the original infection.

We are currently witnessing a major epidemic caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). The evolution of 2019-nCoV remains elusive. We found 4 insertions in the spike glycoprotein (S) which are unique to the 2019-nCoV and are not present in other coronaviruses. Importantly, amino acid residues in all the 4 inserts have identity or similarity to those in the HIV-1 gp120 or HIV-1 Gag. Interestingly, despite the inserts being discontinuous on the primary amino acid sequence, 3D-modelling of the 2019-nCoV suggests that they converge to constitute the receptor binding site. The finding of 4 unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV, all of which have identity /similarity to amino acid residues in key structural proteins of HIV-1 is unlikely to be fortuitous in nature. This work provides yet unknown insights on 2019-nCoV and sheds light on the evolution and pathogenicity of this virus with important implications for diagnosis of this virus.

By Steven Li, MD April 30, 2021
The baby was “hospitalized but continued to decline and passed away” two days later with a diagnosis of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website, TTP is “a rare blood disorder… blood clots form in small blood vessels throughout the body.
Dr. Charles Hoffe, a family physician in the Canadian Province of British Columbia, expressed his concerns about giving COVID-19 vaccines to pregnant women in an open letter to BC Provincial Health Officer Bonnie Henry.
“There have been hundreds of reported miscarriages in pregnant women who have received the Covid vaccines. The placenta is one of the 20 tissue types that also has a spike protein. So it is most likely, that the cause of these miscarriages, is that these women, now have an antibody that targets placental tissue. They have effectively been vaccinated against any future pregnancy,” Hoffe wrote.
“So if you know any woman of childbearing age, who is planning to receive a Covid vaccine, please warn her about this possibility, of permanent sterility, through recurrent miscarriage. I request your prayers, and I very much hope that this information may be helpful to you and those dear to you. Please feel free to share it with anyone who might heed these warnings.” he continued.

Dear Dr. Henry,
The first dose of the Moderna vaccine has now been administered to some of my patients in the community of Lytton, BC. This began with the First Nations members of our community in mid-January, 2021. 900 doses have now been administered. I have been quite alarmed at the high rate of serious side-effects from this novel treatment. From this relatively small number of people vaccinated so far, we have had: Numerous allergic reactions, with two cases of anaphylaxis. One (presumed) vaccine induced sudden death, (in a 72 year old patient with COPD. This patient complained of being more short of breath continually after receiving the vaccine, and died very suddenly and unexpectedly on day 24, after the vaccine. He had no history of cardiovascular disease).
Three people with ongoing and disabling neurological deficits, with associated chronic pain, persisting for more than 10 weeks after their first vaccine. These neurological deficits include: continual and disabling dizziness, generalised or localized neuromuscular weakness, with or without sensory loss. The chronic pain in these patients is either generalised or regional, with or without headaches. So in short, in our small community of Lytton, BC, we have one person dead, and three people who look as though they will be permanently disabled, following their first dose of the Moderna vaccine. The age of those affected ranges from 38 to 82 years of age. So I have a couple of questions and comments: Are these considered normal and acceptable long term side-effects for gene modification therapy? Judging by medical reports from around the world, our Lytton experience is not unusual. Do you have any idea what disease processes may have been initiated, to be producing these ongoing neurological symptoms? Do you have any suggestions as to how I should treat the vaccine induced neurological weakness, the dizziness, the sensory loss, and the chronic pain syndromes in these people, or should they be all simply referred to a neurologist? I anticipate that many more will follow, as the vaccine is rolled out. This was only phase one, and the first dose.
In stark contrast to the deleterious effects of this vaccine in our community, we have not had to give any medical care what-so-ever, to anyone with Covid-19. So in our limited experience, this vaccine is quite clearly more dangerous than Covid-19.
I realize that every medical therapy has a risk-benefit ratio, and that serious disease calls for serious medicine. But we now know that the recovery rate of Covid-19, is similar to the seasonal flu, in every age category. Furthermore, it is well known that the side effects following a second shot, are significantly worse than the first. So the worst is still to come.
It must be emphasised, that these people were not sick people, being treated for some devastating disease. These were previously healthy people, who were offered an experimental therapy, with unknown long-term side-effects, to protect them against an illness that has the same mortality rate as the flu. Sadly, their lives have now been ruined.
It is normally considered a fundamental principal of medical ethics, to discontinue a clinical trial if significant harm is demonstrated from the treatment under investigation.
So my last question is this: Is it medically ethical to continue this vaccine rollout, in view of the severity of these life altering side-effects, after just the first shot? In Lytton, BC, we have an incidence of 1 in 225 of severe life altering side-effects, from this experimental gene modification therapy.
I have also noticed that these vaccine induced side effects are going almost entirely unreported, by those responsible for the vaccine rollout. I am aware that this is often a problem, with vaccines in general, and that delayed side-effects after vaccines, are sometimes labelled as being “coincidences”, as causality is often hard to prove. However, in view of the fact that this is an experimental treatment, with no long-term safety data, I think that perhaps this issue should be addressed too.
Furthermore I have noticed, that the provincial vaccine injury reporting form, which was clearly designed for conventional vaccines, does not even have any place to report vaccine injuries of the nature and severity that we are seeing from this new mRNA therapy.
It is now clearly apparent with medical evidence from around the world, that the side-effect profiles of the various gene modification therapies against Covid-19, have been vastly understated by their manufacturers, who were eager to prove their safety. Thank you for attention to this critically urgent public health matter. Yours sincerely, Dr. Charles Hoffe

Tim Zook’s last post on Facebook brimmed with optimism. “Never been so excited to get a shot before,” he wrote on Jan. 5, above a photo of the Band-Aid on his arm and his COVID-19 vaccination card. “I am now fully vaccinated after receiving my 2nd Pfizer dose.”
Zook, 60, was an X-ray technologist at South Coast Global Medical Center in Santa Ana. A couple of hours later, he had an upset stomach and trouble breathing. By 3:30 p.m. it was so bad his colleagues at work walked him to the emergency room. “Should I be worried?” his wife, Rochelle, texted when she got the news. “No, absolutely not,” he texted back. “Do you think this is a direct result of the vaccine?” she typed. “No, no,” he said. “I’m not sure what. But don’t worry.”
55) Another prominent scientist speaks against the covid vaccine (Dr. Janci Chunn Lindsay, Ph.D) by Jennifer Margulis:
In a public comment to the CDC, molecular biologist and toxicologist Dr. Janci Chunn Lindsay, Ph.D., called to immediately halt Covid vaccine production and distribution. Citing fertility, blood-clotting concerns (coagulopathy), and immune escape, Dr. Lindsay explained to the committee the scientific evidence showing that the coronavirus vaccines are not safe.
On April 23, 2021, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices held a meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. The focus of this ACIP meeting was blood clotting disorders following Covid vaccines. Dr. Janci Chunn Lindsay spoke to the CDC during the time set aside for public comment.
I strongly feel that all the gene therapy vaccines must be halted immediately due to safety concerns on several fronts.

70) Tucker Carlson Interviews Dr. Peter McCullough: Where Is the Conversation About COVID Treatments?
Dr. Peter McCullough, author of the American Journal of Medicine’s most downloaded paper on COVID treatments, estimated 85% of COVID deaths could have been prevented if health officials, politicians and physicians had focused less on vaccines and more on early preventive therapies. by Children’s Health Defense May 20, 2021
For a typical new drug, for instance, at about five deaths unexplained deaths, we get a black box warning. And you will see that on TV, “may cause death”. Then, at about 50 deaths, for a new (drug) product, it is off the market, pulled off the market. We do have some precedent for vaccines. In the 1976 Swine Flu Pandemic, we attempted to vaccinate 55 million Americans in 1976. There were 500 cases of Guillan Bare syndrome which is ascending paralysis from the legs upwards. The program was killed at 25 deaths. We know annually with the influenza vaccine, multiple manufacturers, 195 million people vaccinated. About 20-30 deaths are reported in through VAERS. In the United States today, we have approximately 77 million individuals fully vaccinated, and we have 2602 deaths, So it is unprecedented how many deaths have accrued. Previous studies indicate maybe only 1-10 per cent of all the adverse events are ever reported to the VAERS system. A couple practical reasons. One is that It takes a health care worker to access the system, or a loved one to call a health care worker to access the system and to make the entry.. Most of the deaths occur on days one, two and three, and they are reported by health care workers. So some occurr right in the vaccination center, and the health care workers feel very responsible, and report it right there, Many times they are reported by a nursing home workers, or nurses that see patients back in the ER. Patients present dead or undergo resuscitation and die. So they are all piling up on days one two and three. On March 8, the CDC announced on their web site with very little fanfare that they had reviewed about 1,600 deaths with un-named FDA doctors, and they indicated not a single death was related to the vaccine. I think that was concerning in the Academic Community. I have chaired and participated in dozens of data safety monitoring boards and critical end point committees. I can tell you that type of work would have taken many months to review all the laboratories, the death certificates, and all the circumstances. It is impossible for un-named regulatory doctors without any experience with Covid 19 to opine that none of the deaths were due to the vaccine. So I think this was essentially a scrubbing, like we have seen elsewhere..

To understand how Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) transmitted from bats to humans, we compared the virus surface spikes of MERS-CoV and a related bat coronavirus, HKU4. Although HKU4 spike cannot mediate viral entry into human cells, two mutations enabled it to do so by allowing it to be activated by human proteases. These mutations are present in MERS-CoV spike, explaining why MERS-CoV infects human cells. These mutations therefore played critical roles in the bat-to-human transmission of MERS-CoV, either directly or through intermediate hosts.

77) Norwegian experts say deadly blood clots were caused by the AstraZeneca covid vaccine
Three Norwegian health workers under the age of 50 have been hospitalized. One is dead.
Ida Irene Bergstrøm Journalist 18. march 2021. The three affected health workers all came into the hospital with a very rare condition: They had acute pain. They had blood clots in unusual places, such as their stomachs and brains. In addition, they had bleedings and low levels of platelets. “Our theory that this is a powerful immune response which most likely was caused by the vaccine has been found. In collaboration with experts in the field from the University Hospital of North Norway HF, we have found specific antibodies against blood platelets that can cause these reactions, and which we know from other fields of medicine, but then with medical drugs as the cause of the reaction”, the chief physician explains to VG.

Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune condition characterized by low platelet count with mucocutaneous and other bleedings. Clinical manifestations may range from spontaneous formation of purpura and petechiae, especially on the extremities, to epistaxis, bleeding at the gums or menorrhagia, any of which occur usually if the platelet count is below 20,000 per μl. A very low count may result in the spontaneous formation of hematomas in the mouth or on other mucous membranes. Fatal complications, including subarachnoid or intracerebral, lower gastrointestinal or other internal bleeding can arise due to an extremely low count. Vaccines may induce ITP by several mechanisms. Vaccine-associated autoimmunity may stem not only from the antigen-mediated responses but also from other constituents of the vaccine, such as yeast proteins, adjuvants, and preservatives diluents. The most likely is through virally induced molecular mimicry. The binding of pathogenic autoantibodies to platelet and megakaryocytes may cause thrombocytopenia by different mechanisms, such as opsonization, direct activation of complement, or apoptotic pathways. The autoantibodies hypothesis is not sufficient to explain all ITP cases: In the anti-platelet antibody-negative cases, a complementary mechanism based on T cell immune-mediated mechanism has been suggested. In particular, T cell subsets seem dysregulated with an increased production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, as IFN-γ and TNF, and chemokines, as CXCL10. Vaccines are one of the most striking discoveries in human history that changed dramatically life expectancy. Nonetheless, the occurrence of adverse events and autoimmune phenomena has been described following vaccination, and ITP may represent one of this.

A boy developed immune thrombocytopenia 2 weeks after receiving his measles-mumps-rubella and varicella vaccines at 12 months of age. He then had a recurrent episode 1 week after the booster doses of his quadrivalent diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis-polio, pneumococcal and meningococcal group C vaccines at 5 years of age. On both the occasions he required hospitalisation and treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin. He received other vaccines, before and in between, without any adverse events. Future vaccines are to be determined on an individual risk-benefit basis and he will be reviewed at the age of 11 when his next routine immunisations are due

Several interventions of this type have been woven into the Covid-19 messaging campaign, including fear (inflating perceived threat levels), shame (conflating compliance with virtue) and peer pressure (portraying non-compliers as a deviant minority) – or “affect”, “ego” and “norms”, to use the language of behavioural science

The covert psychological strategies incorporated into the state’s coronavirus information campaign have achieved their aims of inducing a majority of the population to obey the draconian public health restrictions and accept vaccination. The nature of the tactics deployed — with their subconscious modes of action and the emotional discomfort generated — do, however, raise some pressing concerns about the legitimacy of using these kinds of psychological techniques for this purpose. The government, and their expert advisors, are operating in morally murky waters. An open, public-wide debate about the ethical integrity of these approaches — and the extensive collateral damage associated with them — is urgently required.

92) Good news: Mild COVID-19 induces lasting antibody protection
People who have had mild illness develop antibody-producing cells that can last lifetime by Tamara Bhandari•May 24, 2021 Washington University School of Medicine
93) Turner, Jackson S., et al. “SARS-CoV-2 infection induces long-lived bone marrow plasma cells in humans.” Nature (2021): 1-8.
Long-lived bone marrow plasma cells (BMPCs) are a persistent and essential source of protective antibodies1–7. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) convalescent individuals have a significantly lower risk of reinfection8–10. Nonetheless, it has been reported that anti-SARS-CoV-2 serum antibodies experience rapid decay in the first few months after infection, raising concerns that long-lived BMPCs may not be generated and humoral immunity against this virus may be short-lived11–13. Here we demonstrate that in patients who experienced mild infections (n=77), serum anti-SARS-CoV-2 spike (S) antibodies decline rapidly in the first 4 months after infection and then more gradually over the following 7 months, remaining detectable at least 11 months after infection. Anti-S antibody titers correlated with the frequency of S-specific BMPCs obtained from bone marrow aspirates of 18 SARS-CoV-2 convalescent patients 7 to 8 months after infection. S-specific BMPCs were not detected in aspirates from 11 healthy subjects with no history of SARS-CoV-2 infection. We demonstrate that S-binding BMPCs are quiescent, indicating that they are part of a long-lived compartment. Consistently, circulating resting memory B cells directed against the S protein were detected in the convalescent individuals. Overall, we show that SARS-CoV-2 infection induces a robust antigen-specific, long-lived humoral immune response in humans.

While analyzing COVID-19 samples last year in an attempt to create a vaccine, Dalgleish and Sørensen discovered ‘unique fingerprints’ in the virus that they say could only have arisen from manipulation in a laboratory. They said they tried to publish their findings but were rejected by major scientific journals which were at the time resolute that the virus jumped naturally from bats or other animals to humans.

Conclusions Individuals who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection are unlikely to benefit from COVID-19 vaccination, and vaccines can be safely prioritized to those who have not been infected before.
Summary Cumulative incidence of COVID-19 was examined among 52238 employees in an American healthcare system. COVID-19 did not occur in anyone over the five months of the study among 2579 individuals previously infected with COVID-19, including 1359 who did not take the vaccine.
