Any critique of the COVID-19 vaccines has to point out that they were inadequately tested before being released. The FDA can’t dispute this claim but will immediately add that the vaccines are nonetheless safe. As famed sportscaster Warner Wolf would say: “Let’s go to the videotape.” Here are some of the standard steps the FDA skipped before issuing its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the vaccines. Knowing this, you decide how valid is the FDA’s assurance of the safety of COVID vaccines.
It was known by the FDA and others that no previous coronavirus vaccines ever passed animal trials. The test animals got seriously ill or died. These experimental vaccines were shown to make worse the symptoms of the disease they were supposed to suppress. This is a sign of an Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE), which means the antibodies from the vaccine might actually help the virus enter and damage living cells. This should have been a red flag for the FDA when the COVID-19 vaccines came before it for review. Furthermore, Pfizer and the other vaccine manufacturers didn’t complete animal testing on their novel COVID-19 vaccines.
Initially, Pfizer was running a 44,000-person clinical trial to see if its COVID-19 vaccine had adverse long-term effects. Against the strong recommendation of the FDA and in midstream of the test, Pfizer offered its vaccine to members of the placebo control group. Many took it, negating the validity of the trial. This means that Pfizer didn’t complete any long-term testing to establish the safety of its vaccine. And the FDA went along with that and still issued an Emergency Use Authorization allowing the vaccines to be released. One can only speculate why.
Because there was inadequate testing, it was assumed that the vaccine would stay in the shoulder, where the injection was made. But this did not turn out to be the case, according to a Japanese study. This means that potentially toxic spike proteins are throughout the body. The Japanese study further found the vaccine highly distributed in the ovaries, potentially causing infertility.
There are now indications from the field that there may be a number of other problems associated with the vaccines that would have been detected by long-term testing. These include, but are not limited to, blood clots, complications with fertility, and signs of ADE. One can argue if the spike proteins are toxic or not, and whether or not ADE and fertility are legitimate concerns. Time will tell. Hopefully, the COVID vaccines will prove to be as safe as their manufacturers claim.
