Agroup of military doctors alarmed by reported spikes in service members’ miscarriages, myocarditis, cancer and other serious issues in the first year of COVID-19 vaccine availability no longer trust the military’s medical database, one of them told Just the News.
Lt. Col. Peter Chambers said he was now giving potential vaccine-injury cases, from his own practice and that of colleagues, directly to Sen. Ron Johnson for the Wisconsin Republican’s ongoing pressure on the Department of Defense (DOD) to end COVID vaccine mandates.
Their last rendezvous was a few weeks ago in Dallas, where Chambers is based, the retiring Green Beret surgeon and Purple Heart recipient said in a phone interview this week. All service members have signed a release for their records, which include case numbers but not names, to be shared, Chambers said.
Johnson’s office confirmed the meeting, telling Just the News the senator “has acknowledged and given those with vaccine injuries a platform to share their stories,” including doctors. “His goal is to get them the treatment they need.”
Among the senator’s recent actions related to vaccine mandates, Johnson has urged three Veterans Affairs Medical Centers in Wisconsin to end their “pointless and destructive” mandates on employees who sought his intervention.
