This week, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president, and Polly Tommey, co-producer of “Vaxxed,” cover the latest COVID headlines, including a study claiming unvaccinated people are spreading COVID variants, the statement by Dr. Leana Wen, former Planned Parenthood president, who said life should be “hard” for the unvaccinated, and the Biden administration’s push to ramp up COVID vaccines in settings like doctor’s offices and at work.
Mary and Polly also discuss the White House’s new door-to-door vaccine campaign, former Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachman’s slamming of Biden’s door-to-door vaccine push and the script door-to-door government vaccine campaigners are using to persuade Americans to get vaccinated.
Here are more of this week’s highlights:
Analysis of public health data in England found the risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID in children is “extremely low.” The absolute risk of death from the virus equates to one in 481,000, researchers said.
The New York Times says “time is running out” for students to get vaccinated before schools reopen. What’s interesting about this NYT article is that the photo they used shows two people in military fatigue vaccinating a 12-year-old, said Mary. “The militarization of this so-called ‘medical intervention’ is extraordinary.”
California is still masking children despite proven physical and psychological danger. It’s one of the only states with a school mask mandate, despite evidence the long-term use of facemasks is harmful to children, Mary said.
Pfizer plans to request emergency authorization for its COVID vaccine for children ages 5-11. Pfizer is conducting clinical trials in children 6 months to 11 years old. “We hope parents push back hard,” said Mary.
School-age children have four new vaccine requirements in the state of Virginia. The shots include the Hepatitis A, Meningitis, HPV-Gardasil and Rotavirus vaccines. “The good news for Virginia is they still have religious belief exemptions. Parents absolutely need to use those,” said Mary. “What scares me is that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with zero science, has encouraged co-administration of COVID shots with other vaccines.”
Special clinics are using federal funds to vaccinate developmentally disabled people, including those with autism in Connecticut. “Many parents of developmentally disabled children have no idea the disability could be linked to vaccines,” said Mary.
Scientists and other health experts are warning indoor mask mandates and other public health measures will likely make a return in the U.S. this fall due to spread of the Delta COVID variant.
Pfizer and BioNTech are partnering to develop a booster shot specifically targeting the so-called Delta variant of the virus that causes the disease.
Pfizer will seek U.S. authorization for a third COVID vaccine dose. The vaccine maker said a third shot within 12 months could possibly help ward off the Delta variant. “The new normal they’re wheeling out is vaccination every three months, every six months, and surely every year,” said Mary. “The COVID plus the flu shot. This does not end with the COVID pandemic.”
The Food and Drug Administration will announce a new warning on Johnson & Johnson’s COVID vaccine saying the shot is linked to Guillain–Barré syndrome. In April, the agency added a warning about blood clotting disorders to the J&J shot.
The European Union found a link between heart inflammation and mRNA COVID shots. “A little bit late to the game in the EU,” said Polly. “We discovered that some time ago.” The European Medicines Agency also said people with Coffin-Lowry syndrome, in which fluids leak from the smallest blood vessels causing swelling and a drop in blood pressure, should not receive the AstraZeneca vaccine.
The BBC finally admits heart inflammation is linked to Pfizer and Moderna COVID shots. “That is really big,” said Polly. “The BBC are not our friends. For them to put out a heart/inflammation link as a BBC headline is mind-blowing.”
British health authorities quietly issued a warning that Pfizer and Moderna’s COVID vaccines may cause heart damage. “That again is big mainstream coverage,” said Polly.
The Biden administration will begin sending up to $300 per child per month to most American families. “Is this the start of no jab, no-pay?” asked Polly. “It must be,” said Mary. “If this becomes an entitlement that people rely on, it’s not much of a stretch to imagine it will be no jab, no pay. This has already been implemented in Australia.”
The number of reported COVID cases among fully vaccinated people continues to climb. The CDC reports 4,686 breakthrough cases resulting in death and hospitalization. Nearly 30 people in Louisiana who were fully vaccinated against COVID died from the virus. “Probably 90% of breakthrough cases of COVID among the vaccinated are not tracked,” said Mary.
The number of deaths reported after COVID vaccines jumped by more than 2,000 in 1 week, according to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The latest CDC data showed a total of 438,441 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 9,048 deaths and 41,015 serious injuries between Dec.14, 2020 and July 2, 2021. Mary said, “I have not seen a single mainstream proponent of vaccination discuss the VAERS numbers yet.”
Hundreds injured by COVID vaccines are turning to GoFundMe for help with expenses. High school senior Emma Burkey received the one-shot J&J COVID vaccine. Within two weeks she was placed in an induced coma. She underwent three brain surgeries after experiencing seizures and developing blood clots in her brain. When Burkey was well enough to be transferred from the hospital to a rehabilitation center, her first round of bills totaled $513,000.
A surgeon who operated on a young Italian girl who died at the age of 18 from the effects of the COVID vaccine, said he has never seen anything like this. “It’s not normal,” he said. “I had never seen a brain that was affected by such an extensive and severe thrombosis.”
A new study says the COVID vaccine doesn’t infiltrate breast milk. “This is a ridiculous study to base anything on,” said Mary.
Tajikistan has become the first country in the world to make COVID vaccines mandatory. “Tajikistan is part of the former Soviet Union,” said Mary. “It’s known for repressive policies. But they don’t have any true plan for enforcement.”
The Cricket West Indies announced that the entire women’s team and management staff are now fully vaccinated against COVID. Two West Indies players collapsed on the field during a game and were taken to the hospital. Authorities did not link the incident to the vaccine; however, the cause remains unknown.
The lead scientist on China’s Sinovac vaccine trials in Indonesia died of suspected COVID. The infection and deaths of health workers in Indonesia who had received the Sinovac vaccine has added to questions over its effectiveness in preventing hospitalization and death.
Canada will not welcome unvaccinated tourists for some time, said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
France is forcing its healthcare workers to get vaccinated for COVID by September or risk not being paid. “I think there’s going to be a lot of pushback in France,” said Mary. “That’s not going to go down well.”
Richard Power Sayeed, writer and documentary filmmaker, said children and young children should be given the COVID vaccine. “We already vaccinate children with experimental vaccines because we’re very confident about how vaccines work,” he said. “We know it’s safe and it’s never worked out badly before.” Mary said, “What an extraordinary comment. Wake up, pal.”
The British government said COVID passports will be required in pubs. Ministers “plan to force bars, clubs and restaurants to demand proof of two jabs or a negative test” to help tackle a fourth wave of the virus. “They’re really pushing for young people” to get vaccinated, said Mary.
A British study is looking at whether a monthly vaccine could cure long COVID. The first stage of the study was given the green light last week. Human trials are set to begin this year.
Members of Children’s Health Defense and Children’s Health Defense Europe gathered in Switzerland to discuss the impacts of the global COVID vaccine agenda, and to unite in the fight for health freedom.
If you believe you’re suffering secondary side effects — such as heart issues, fatigue, brain fog, muscle weakness or other symptoms — we want you to tell us about that. Here’s how.
