President Biden at Pfizer Manufacturing Site

Kalamazoo, MI...Albert, thank you very much. Thank you not only for what you do for the — the credit you give me that I really don’t deserve. This is — this is a case of life and death. We’re talking about people’s lives. I want you to know that once we beat COVID, we’re going to do everything we can to end cancer as we know it. I’ve asked Dr. Eric Lander, a renowned Harvard/MIT scientist, to co-lead the Presidential Council of Advisors in Science and Technology, and the Office of Science and Technology Policy. These are the White House offices that bring together the country’s top scientists and address our most pressing needs.

They’ll be part of the administration’s work to develop a DARPA-like advanced research effort on cancer and other diseases, just like there is DARPA in the Defense Department that develops the breakthroughs to protect our country.

This administration is going to be guided by science — to save lives and to make lives better. And that’s why I wanted to come here, Albert, to thank you and to thank all the workers here in Kalamazoo. And I’m here to thank my good friend, Governor Whitmer, and she has become a good and close friend. The Governor have been on the frontlines of this pandemic, as well, for a long time, and I think she’s doing an incredible job in a very difficult circumstances.

And Michigan is also fortunate to have my buddy Gary Peters as United States senator, and Debbie Stabenow. Gary is here. Gary has been a workhorse in making sure that we move through this funding to get things done, because he understands better than anyone: It’s about urgency — the urgency of the moment. So, Gary — thank you, Senator. Thank you for all you’re doing.

Last week, I toured the Vaccine Research Center at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. I met world-class doctors, scientists, and researchers who were critical for discovering the vaccines in record time. I remember when we first started talking about this, asking Dr. Fauci and others. They said, “Well, it could take up to several years, maybe as many as six or eight years, to find — find a vaccine.” It’s a miracle of science and the brilliant minds that we have around us.

And now it’s a second miracle — a miracle of manufacturing — to produce hundreds of millions of doses. Let me say that again: hundreds of millions of doses.

I came here because I want the American people to understand the extraordinary — extraordinary work that’s being done to undertake the most difficult operational challenge this nation has ever faced.

And let me say parenthetically that it’s not enough that we find cures for Americans. There needs to be cures that the world is able to take part of, because you can’t build a wall or a fence high enough to keep a pandemic out.

On our tour, I met a few of your nearly 3,000 workers, Albert: experts managing ingredients that come in from different cities and states; experts handling 3D modeling and artificial intelligence to ensure that every dose is properly crafted; experts ensuring an environ- — a sterile environment so that each vial — each and every one — is safe and free of contaminants.

All of this is followed by extensive safety and quality control inspection, then careful packaging and labeling. We walked by a freezer farm that then keeps those doses viable so they can be shipped. This is an incredibly complex process. And at every stop, safety is the utmost priority.

The whole process takes teamwork, precision, and around-the-clock focus. Machinists operating some of the most advanced equipment in the world, working side by side with chemists, biologists, pioneering technologies that, less than a year ago, were little more than theories and aspirations.

And it takes a partnership, in our view, between the federal government and all of the companies and universities contributing to the vaccine effort.

Just over four weeks ago, America had no real plan to vaccinate most of the country. My predecessor — as my mother would say, “God love him” — failed to order enough vaccines, failed to mobilize the effort to administer the shots, failed to set up vaccine centers. That changed the moment we took office.

I directed Jeff Zients, my COVID-19 Response Coordinator, to lead my administration’s work with the vaccine manufacturers to buy more vaccines and to speed up delivery. Albert referenced it earlier, and I want to thank him for making it happen. Because we worked together, we’re now on track to have enough vaccine supply for all Americans by the end of July. And it doesn’t mean that it’ll be in all Americans’ arms, but enough vaccine will be available by that time. These orders allow facilities like this one to plan ahead, accelerate their production schedules.

Here’s what else we did: When we discovered that vaccine manufacturers weren’t being prioritized when it came to scrutinizing and securing supplies they needed, we fixed that problem and got them what they needed. We also used the Defense Production Act to speed up the supply chain for que- — for key equipment, like fill pumps and filters, which has already helped increase vaccine production.

In fact, on our tier [sic] — on our tour today, they showed me a critical piece of machinery they didn’t have before; now, they do. And it’s allowing them to ramp up production.

And as we increase supply, we’re carrying out a clear plan to get shots into the arms of 300 million Americans or more. And I know people want confidence that it’s safe. Well, I just toured, and that’s — where it’s being made. It takes more time to do the check for safety than it does to actually make the vaccine. That’s how fastidious they are.

And listen to Dr. Fauci. Dr. Fauci assured me the COVID-9 [sic] vact- — vaccines were safe. That’s why, several weeks ago, I went through the rigorous scientific review. That’s why I took my vaccine shot publicly to demonstrate to the American people that I know and believe it’s safe. That’s why Vice President Harris also received her shot publicly.

We all know there is some history — there’s some hesitancy about taking this vaccine. We all know there’s a history in this country of having subjected certain communities to terrible medical abuses in the past. But if there’s one message to cut through to everyone in this country, it’s this: The vaccines are safe. Please, for yourself, your family, your community, this country, take the vaccine when it’s your turn and available. That’s how to beat this pandemic.

And we’re making progress. We deployed more vaccinators, the people who put the vaccine in your arm. We’re now making it possible for retired doctors and nurses to come back and, under the law, administer these shots. We’ve put new vaccinators in the field. These include over 800 medical personnel from our Commissioned Corps at the Department of Health and Human Services, and personnel from the Federal Emergency Management Agency — FEMA — the Defense Department, the National Guard. We’re literally lining up — we’re lining up thousands of vaccinators, because it’s one thing to have the vaccine, and it’s very different to get it in someone’s arms.

We’re also creating more places for people to get vaccinated. We’ve provided $3 billion to states, territories, and tribes to create hundreds of new vaccination centers to ramp — and ramp up the existing ones that now — that are there.

Right here in Michigan, with Governor Whitmer, FEMA has provided tens of millions of dollars to bolster the state’s community vaccination centers, from the National Guard at the Expo Center here in Kalamazoo, to the TF- — excuse me, the TCF Center in Detroit, to parking lots and churches across the state.

We’ve worked with governors in California, Texas, New York, and more to come, to stand up massive — mass vaccine sites in stadiums that will be open 24/7, and arenas and community centers. It’s an effort that’s on top of the federal government covering the full cost for the states’ use of their National Guards for pandemic efforts. And you suggested I do that a while ago, and I promised you I’d do it, and we did it.

We also started shipping vaccines directly to thousands of local pharmacies across the country so eligible folks can get the COVID-19 shot like they would a flu shot.

Here in Michigan, that’s already more than 220 pharmacies, like Rite Aid and Meijers, in more than 130 Michigan cities. And that’s just the beginning. It’s only been four weeks.

And for folks who aren’t near a pharmacy or a mass vaccination center, we’re deploying mobile clinics. These are special vehicles and pop-up clinics that meet folks where they live — folks who don’t have access to transportation to get the shots.

We’re also supplying vaccines to community health centers — federal community health centers — to reach those who are hit the hardest: black, Latinos, Native Americans, and rural communities, which have higher rates of COVID infections and deaths than any other group.

Here in Michigan, we’re already partnering with community health centers, serving more than 370,000 patients in 11 cities across the state. That’s because you guys have pointed out where they were and why it was so important, and how we get to — as Gary talks about, get to the people most in need and the people most dying from COVID. This is important to ensure everyone is treated equally and those hardest hit get the care they deserve.

We’re now at a point where we’ve seen the average daily number of people vaccinated nearly double, from the week before I took office, to about 1.7 million average per day getting a shot. We’re on track to surpass my commitment.

You may remember when I said, “In my first 100 days,” just before I was inaugurated — which seemed like 100 days. But anyway, “The first 100 days,” before I was inaugurated, “that we’d administer 100 million shots in my first 100 days.” But we’re on the path to do that. We’re averaging 1.7 million a day. Soon we’ll be at 50 million, and I’m confident we’ll exceed the number. But that’s just the floor. We have to keep going.

But despite the progress, we’re still in the teeth of a pandemic. New strains are emerging. In a few days, we’ll cross 500,000 Americans who will have died from COVID-19. Five hundred thousand. That is almost 70,000 more than all the Americans who died in World War Two, over a four-year period. All the sorrow, all the heartache, all the pain.

And while we wait for everyone to get vaccinated, we still need you to wash your hands, stay socially distanced, and mask up to help save lives. That’s why, with the authority I have as President, I signed an executive order — the only authority I have to require this — to require masking on all federal property, all modes of travel like planes, trains, and buses. And we’ve been calling on governors and mayors and local officials — Republicans and Democrats -– to institute mask mandates within their jurisdictions, just like Governor Whitmer has done here in Michigan.

Look, I know it’s inconvenient, but you’re making a difference when you do it. Everything we do matters. We need everyone to do their part for themselves, for their loved ones, and, yes, for your country. It’s a patriotic duty.

We need Congress to pass my American Rescue Plan that deals with the immediate crisis — the urgency. Now, critics say my plan is too big, that it costs $1.9 trillion. So that’s too much. Well, let me ask them: What would they have me cut? What would they have me leave out? Should we not invest $20 billion to vaccinate the nation? Should we not invest $290 million [billion] to extend unemployment insurance for the 11 million Americans who are unemployed so they can get by while they get back to work? Should we not invest $50 billion to help small businesses stay open, when tens of thousands have had to close permanently? Should we not invest — and, by the way, they make up half the employment in America. Should we not invest $130 million [billion] to help schools across the nation open safely?

Right now, 24 million adults, 11 million children don’t have enough food to eat. And unless you think I’m exaggerating, think of those scenes you’ve seen on the television with cars lined up, which seemed like miles, to wait to have someone put a box of food in their trunk. People never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever thought they would need help, and through no fault of their own, they’re in that circumstance.

If we don’t pass the American Rescue Plan, 40 million Americans will lose [some of their] nutritional assistance through a program we call SNAP, the old food stamp program. Do we not invest $3 million — $3 billion to keep families from going hungry?

One in five Americans are behind in their rent. One in ten are being in their mortgages. How many people do you know that will go to bed tonight staring at the ceiling, saying, “God, what is going to happen if I don’t get my job, if I don’t have my unemployment check? What’s happened to me? I’m losing my health insurance. What do I do?”

This is the United States of America, for God’s sake. We invest in people who are in need. Do we not invest $35 billion to help people keep a roof over their heads? I could go on, but you get the point. I’m grateful that the Senate and the House are moving quickly. And I’m prepared to hear their ideas on how to make the package better and make it cheaper. I’m open to that.

But we have to make clear who is helped and who is hurt. And my hope is that the Republicans in Congress listen to their constituents.

According to the polls, there is overwhelming bipartisan support. The vast majority of the American people — more than 70 percent of the American people, with all the polls you all conduct, including a majority of Republicans — want us to act, and act big and quickly and support the plan.

Major economists — left, right, and center — say we should focus on smart investments we can make now in jobs, in our people to prevent long-term economic damage to our nation and to strengthen the economic competitiveness going forward.

In fact, an analysis by the Wall Street firm Moody’s estimates that if we pass my American Rescue Plan, the economy will create 7 million jobs this year. This year.

We’ve also been in constant contact with mayors and governors, county officials, members of Congress — both parties. Both parties. I’ve met with them in my office; I’ve met with them in — on the — on the Internet — on — Zooming on with them. Both parties in every state. And guess what? They agree we have to act now.

I got a letter from more than 400 mayors, from big cities and small town. They understand we’re not going to get our economy back in shape and the millions of people back to work until we beat this virus.

That’s why the American Rescue Plan puts 160 million — billion dollars into more testing and tracing, manufacturing and distribution, and setting up vaccination sites — everything that’s needed to get vaccines into people’s arms, which is the most difficult logistical effort the United States has undertaken in peace time. It includes $4 billion for new manufacturing plants so we’re ready to manufacture vaccines in the future. We don’t have to wait.

I’m going to close with what I said before: I’ll always be straight with you. I said in my inaugural I’ll be — “give it to you straight from the shoulders,” Roosevelt said. Because the American people can take the truth. They can handle anything.

I can’t give you a date when this crisis will end, but I can tell you we’re doing everything possible to have that day come sooner rather than later.

And all of you here are doing some of the most important work in this facility, right here, that can be done.

And I know this is personal: I walked in today, and I won’t say who came up to me, but one of the people in this building came up to me and said, “My father-in-law is dying from COVID.” I said, “Can I call?” He said, “No. He couldn’t take a call.” He says, “Keep him in his prayers, please.”

How many of you know somebody who’s in real trouble or has passed? How many people do you know who sat down to breakfast this morning and looked at an empty chair across the table?

You’ve seen the devastation of this virus in your family, your community, but you’re stepping up. You’re saving lives here — lives of your loved ones, your neighbors, your fellow Americans. You’re showing how this town, this state, this country takes care of our own, leaves nobody behind.

We can do anything when we do it together. I believe we’re on the road. And I promise you, I know we’ll run into bumps. It’s not going to be easy here to the end, but we’re going to beat this. We’re going to beat this.

May God bless you all. And may God protect our troops. And, Albert, thank you and your people for all you do.

MR. BOURLA: Thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. (Applause.)

Q President Biden, you’ve said that you think by the end of July is when we’ll have enough vaccines for all Americans. But when do you think all Americans, or a majority, will have actually gotten the vaccine?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, all we got to do is do a little bit of the math. Getting the vaccine and having it available is not the same as putting it in someone’s arms. This is going to be a continuous rolling effort. So we’ll have had — we will have ordered, much of which will have been distributed, over 600 million doses by the end of July. July 29th is the expected date. That could change. Look at what’s happening with the weather now, for example: It’s slowing up the distribution right now. But I believe we’ll be approaching normalcy by the end of this year. And God willing, this Christmas will be different than the last.

But I can’t make that commitment to you. There are other strains of the virus. We don’t know what could happen in terms of production rates. Things can change. But we’re doing everything the science has indicated we should do, and people are stepping up to get everything done that has to be done.

We’re going to have debates about whether or not — for example, I can’t set nationally who gets in line when and first. That’s a decision the states make. I can recommend. I can say what I’ve said — like, I’m the guy that said we should lower it to 65 years of age. I think 35 states have done that, or more. I think that — for example, I think it’s critically important to get our kids back to school. I think it’s really important because of the psychological damage being done and the loss of time. A kid loses a semester when they’re in fifth grade — it means they’re not just a semester behind; they may be a year and a half behind. All of the difficulty.

You were at that town meeting I had with that little girl who was worried that, you know, her mommy — told her mommy she worried maybe she’s going to die. So there’s a lot. I think it’s important we get people back in school.

There’s a difference, for example, according to the science now, between kids between the ages of 3 and probably 12 years old, in terms of whether they can absorb and/or communicate the disease than it is for kids who are 15, 16, 17, and 18 years old who congregate more together. It’s harder in a high school than it is in a grammar school.

We know certain things are necessary: social distancing, smaller class sizes, ventilation, testing, and the possibility that staff, whether it’s the staff taking care of the sanitary conditions in the school, or simply — you’ve heard me say this before — bus drivers. To open the schools, we need more buses and bus drivers. We can’t put kids packed in a bus, sitting next to one another.

So we know the things that have to be done. The question is the order in which we do them is going to — determined on what moves the quickest and where the need is the greatest. Obviously, we still have to focus on first responders, our doctors, our nurses, those delivering the services.

But the reason I bother to bore you with that detail is to try to explain to the American people that this is a process, but we know now the fundamental basic elements. The fundamental basic elements are that, before you get the shot and after — if you get the shots and after — social distancing save lives, wearing masks saves lives, making sure that you wash your hands with hot water saves lives. This is not hyperbole. This is not a political statement. It’s a reality. The science has demonstrated that.

We also know that it’s one thing to have a vaccine available. The problem was, how do you get it into people’s arms? There’s not enough people to vaccinate. All the great hospitals in this state, and in my state, they can line up and give people, but they can’t possibly handle the volume that is needed. So what do you do? You get more people qualified to give vaccinations. The quicker you can open up places and that people can come up and demonstrate they’re on — on the pecking order and they’re ready for their shot, and they’re qualified — keeping places open 24/7 makes a lot of sense, but you need people to do it.

So we all know the basic things that have to happen. Now, we also know that there are things that intervene. Things happen. Weather. People get ill. People get confused. There’s a lot of people who don’t — aren’t able.

You know, I — you’ve heard me say before — you know, my little granddaughter can use that cellphone of hers to do more in about 12 seconds than I can do it in an hour. But a lot of people aren’t able to — a lot of people who need the help. They say, “Well, get online.” Well, they don’t have a means to get online. They might not have, you know, the ability to get online, and they may not know how to do it.

Talk about — everybody is — you know, most people are within five miles of a pharmacy. Well, if you’re living alone and you’re a 68-year-old woman, and you’re in a minority neighborhood, and there’s no bus service, you might as well be 500 miles away. That’s why we’re leading now — and, Gary, you talked to me about it — getting mobile vans to go out.

So we know the kinds of things that have to be done. But there has never ever, ever been a logistical challenge as consequence — as consequential as we’re trying to do. But we’re getting it done.

And as my mom would say, with the grace of God and the goodwill of neighbors, we’re going to save a lot of lives.

Thank you very much.

This guy is hilarious. Trump was funny I’ll admit. Biden is a total clown! If Trump had “any” support, things would’ve been different. Perhaps 2024 he’ll get that support...

      In November, Pfizer offered the Trump administration additional vaccine doses above the 100M that was ordered in July (not enough for even 1 dose for every American, much less two). Pfizer's Board members wanted to prioritize vaccinated US citizens. But no. The Trump administration did a hard pass, even though Pfizer tried to allow them all kinds of discounts and time to decide. In the end, with Trump's administration turning this down, Pfizer was freed to sell the vaccine to other countries. Bummer for us.

    You're some what right about Joe being a 🤡 Joe clearly stated that their was no vaccine when he took office, not remembering he had his covid-19 vaccine given to him in December. Then his VP said they had no stockpiled vaccines and they had to start from scratch. Even the good Dr Fauci said that wasn't true.
    Joe is suffering from dementia and Kamala Harris is known to lie ( in more ways then one) so I'd say your clown part should be directed more at the people who would vote for a mentally handicapped individual, and the liberal left we're so afraid of Trump having the codes to our nuclear arsenal? Trump brought peace to the Middle East, I'm betting Joe's foreign policy, which he's known for being wrong on every level, will bring back the fighting like the Obama years.
    Joe's already proven he's great at causing people to lose jobs and during a pandemic no less.

If you live in this state, your personal data might’ve been leaked in a huge security breach

California’s state DMV has warned that more than a year’s worth of information about residents may have been compromised in a third-party data breach.

An investigation is underway to determine if that’s the case. A financial services firm that contracts with the DMV is what actually fell victim to a ransomware attack.

Unfortunately, that firm also does business with many other public entities, such as the city of Seattle.

        President Trump is history and now it is time to train Fingers Biden. I don't see one comment on Fingers Biden policies. It appears that it okay for Fingers Joe to let thousands of illegal immigrants into the United States and not check them for Covid and let them suck off the system while we have thousands of Americans that are homeless and can't get the care that they need. Let's talk about the abrupt halt of the keystone pipeline that reduces are energy needs and puts thousands of Americans out of jobs while our fuel prices are climbing through the roof. Is this what kind of demented, fragile, arrogant old fuk that you really want as a President? If it is then you are as demented as the rest of the Democrats. The "D" in Democrat stands for Dictatorship and that is exactly what we have for the next four years.

On Dec. 22, 2020, an Auburn, New York nursing home started vaccinating 193 residents. No one in the nursing home had died from COVID-19 prior to the jab campaign. As of Jan. 9, 2021, 24 seniors had died. Health officials reflexively blamed the post-vaccination deaths on COVID-19.

On Jan. 27, a British newspaper reported 22 deaths among the 72 recently vaccinated residents of Pemberley House Care Home in Basingstoke. Predictably British health officials blamed the deaths on coronavirus, saying a disease outbreak had begun soon after the vaccine program.

On Jan. 28, a German paper reported that 13 of 40 residents of the Uhldingen Muhlhofen senior citizens residential park died soon after vaccination. Officials also blamed Covid-19.

At Toronto’s Roberta Place Long Term Care Home, six people died after launch of its COVID vaccine program. Health officials blamed a COVID-19 outbreak.

On Feb. 7, the government of Spain’s Andalusia province suspended the vaccination of the elderly at the Nuestra Señora del Rosario nursing home in Los Barrios, Cadiz, after 46 of them died after receiving the first dose of COVID vaccines. In a nearby nursing home in Sancti Petri, in Chiclana, 22 elderly people died of COVID-19 immediately following vaccination.
In Belgium, the Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products (FAMHP) reported that 14 people died after being vaccinated against the coronavirus. However, causality has not been found.

The Guardian reported on Jan. 16 that weekly nursing home deaths in Britain had jumped by 46%, to 1,200 deaths, since introduction of vaccines.

In Norway, 29 of 40 elderly patients in a nursing home receiving the vaccine died. Most were over the age of 75. The findings have prompted Norway to suggest that COVID-19 vaccines may be too risky for the very old and terminally ill.

Prior to the vaccine, Gibraltar recorded a total of 10 deaths due to COVID-19. Following Gibraltar’s launching of a COVID vaccine program on Jan. 10, 75 seniors quickly died. Gibraltar’s Chief Minister Fabian Picardo said, “This is now the worst loss of life of Gibraltarians in over 100 years. Even in war, we have never lost so many in such a short time.” Without irony, British health officials blamed the deaths on COVID-19.

    Yeah, those deaths are in the single and double digits. You've been claiming those people would have died anyway of pre existing conditions.
    You didn't mention the 500,000 dead Americans though.

      29 of 40 elderly patients in a nursing home receiving the vaccine died=72.5% of the people died. That is alarming.

      Population of the USA in December of 2019 was 330,149,796, with 500,000 covid deaths=0.1514464059% of the population has died. Obviously the real number is smaller because we have more people now and the over-reporting of covid deaths.

        So, again, you've been saying all along that those people had pre existing conditions that led to their death.
        You can't have it both ways.

Studies predicted lethal effects of mRNA vaccine

Multiple studies lend biological plausibility to the hypothesis of the mRNA vaccine’s extreme reactogenicity and devastating lethality to seniors.

In a Dec. 8, 2020 letter to HHS, rheumatologist Dr. J. Patrick Whelan, the immediate past president of the Los Angeles Pediatric Society, warned FDA that current research indicates that viral proteins generated by the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines are likely to cause tissue damage similar to that caused by COVID-19.

Whelan is no lightweight. He holds triple teaching appointments at the medical schools at Harvard, UCLA and UC. He weekly commutes between his practices at Mass General and UCLA Hospital System.

Whelan reviewed animal studies that strongly suggest that it is not the live virus itself that causes the rash of distinctive organ injuries associated with COVID-19 infections, but breakdown products — most particularly the debris from spiked protein — that are the agents of COVID-19’s signature devastation to distant organs, including the brain, heart, lungs and kidneys.

Whelan warned that mRNA vaccines actually reproduce these same proteins and may also cause similar damage. He describes particularly acute inflammation in human vascular systems that might result in clusters of blood clots, vascular inflammation, vascular collapse and other vascular disruptions that could cause deaths in older patients.

Whelan’s hypothesis raises the possibility that proteins from the Moderna vaccine could inflame blood vessels over several weeks, causing potentially lethal circulatory problems in men Aaron’s age.

“Before any of these vaccines are approved for widespread use in humans,” Whelan cautioned in his letter, “it is important to assess in vaccinated subjects the effects of vaccination on the heart (perhaps using cardiac MRI, as Puntmann et al. did).”

Whelan’s letter is pending publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

Whelan concluded his letter this way:

“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.”

Front-line doctors and regulatory officials are seeing other evidence that seniors might face unassessed risks from the mRNA vaccine. A high-level neurologist M.D. working in San Diego’s elite COVID-19 research unit (he requested anonymity), told me:

“If you look at the injury reports for all age groups, over half of the young people reporting adverse events experienced tachycardia. Their heart rates were ramping up to 200 beats per minute. Young people can tolerate that rate, whereas tachycardia following vaccination could actually kill an older patient. Sudden death is often a cardiac event, I think we need to consider the possibility that a robust initial immune reaction initiated by the Moderna vaccine could result in tachycardia and potential deaths in the elderly. We need to be doing continual monitoring of the elderly post-vaccination. Instead, we are being told not to talk about this rash of deaths in the elderly.”

“We have no idea whether it’s safe for seniors,” warns the renowned pathologist Dr. Sin Hang Lee, M.D., F.R.C.P.(C), FCAP, director of Connecticut’s Milford Molecular Diagnostics.

Referring to the Jan. 29 CDC data dump, Lee told me: “One-fifth of all deaths were cardiac/myocardia as a symptom — average age 74. Overall, there were 993/11,260 cases of cardiac tachycardia reported in VAERS.”

Lee believes these deaths are from myocardial damage related to vaccine reactions:

“Sudden unexpected deaths are usually cardiac origin, unless there is evidence of massive cerebral hemorrhage into much of the intracerebral compartment, which is easy to spot. I think there should be a national investigation into the manner of nursing home deaths, 1) due to COVID-19, and 2) after injections of mRNA vaccines.”

To make an accurate risk/benefit calculation for any vaccine, regulators and the public also need to understand the product’s efficacy.

The agencies sold us on their vaccine enterprise based upon two endpoints. They promised that the vaccine would (1) provide herd immunity that would end the pandemic, and (2) prevent deaths.

But in their clinical trials, neither the Moderna nor the Pfizer vaccines demonstrated that either vaccine prevents COVID-19 related deaths, or disease transmission.

The trial endpoints indicated that the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines prevent mild and moderate symptoms in 95% of COVID cases and no demonstrated efficacy against death. And even for that watered-down endpoint, Moderna’s and Pfizer’s claims to 95% efficacy appear exaggerated.

The British Medical Journal suggested that Pfizer’s raw data is more indicative of 19-29% efficacy against mild to moderate symptoms. The Johnson & Johnson trials, in contrast, did show a strong beneficial impact against deaths.

Equally alarming, the Pfizer and Moderna trials indicated that their vaccines don’t prevent transmission, which is the only basis for herd immunity.

Worst, recent studies suggest that a vaccine that prevents mild to moderate symptoms but does not prevent infection or transmission is likely to drive the evolution and spread of more virulent and deadly strains of the disease. We are already witnessing the evolution of such superbugs in South Africa and England.

So take a minute to absorb this information. According to the World Health Organization, these two mRNA vaccines are not shown to prevent transmission — so they cannot give us herd immunity and cannot end the pandemic. And they could not show that they prevented deaths. So why in the world are we taking them?

Finally, the vast majority of the population is not at elevated risk and should therefore not be vaccinated. These include up to some 100 million Americans who appear to have natural immunity from exposure to COVID-19 or a closely related strain, and even more who are part of peer groups that have an infinitesimal risk from COVID-19 and yet a measurable but unquantified risk from vaccination.

Since these vaccines are not proven to prevent transmission, there is no rational basis for vaccinating these cohorts, which represent perhaps 80% of the American population. These individuals will get zero benefit from the vaccine. For these cohorts, the vaccines are all risk and zero benefit.

              Yeah, no one cares at all about Trump, that's why he lives in every democrats head 24/7/365 you sti can't stop thinking of him. You are as scared as that old lady they call the Sniveler.
              Trump was a huge success in so many ways for our country, he took obama's stalked economy and blasted us to record heights, and the liberal media reported none of it because of their hatred of his success. Now we have Biden and they won't report all of his failures, lies, and deceit. Nothing on his son the dildo boy, the federal criminal investigations of his son, his brother and him from the hard drives of Dildo In The Arse he left at a computer repair shop. Most of us are confident that it will be swept under the rug, we know after the game Russian Collusion that even the fbi is corrupt too.
              That's politics, and you'll be thinking of Trump when you go to bed too😂
