The government and medical establishment recommended mRNA inoculations without informed consent, according to experts at a COVID-19 roundtable sponsored by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).
Johnson’s fifth panel after the virus emerged in early 2020, on December 7, was titled “COVID-19 Vaccines: What they Are, How They Work, and Possible Causes of Injuries,” and included a dozen policy experts and medical professionals.
Inserts: ‘Completely Blank’
During the panel, Renata Moon, M.D., a pediatrician, and Washington State University professor, displayed the package insert of an mRNA injection, showing the entire page was blank.
In other words, the product she received did not come with a list of side effects or risks, said Moon.
“I have a government that’s telling me that I have to say, ‘safe and effective,’ and if I don’t, my license is threatened,” said Moon. “How am I to give informed consent to patients?”
The mRNA vaccine inserts are no longer blank, but the lack of information for providers and patients was unprecedented, Del Bigtree, the founder of the Informed Consent Action Network and another panelist at the roundtable told Health Care News.
“Prior to the COVID vaccine, every vaccine administered in America arrived in a box that contains the glass vile of the product and a folded information insert,” said Bigtree. “The tiny font that fills every inch of the insert includes the list of ingredients in the product and all of the known and suspected potential adverse side effects. However, the inserts delivered with the millions of COVID vaccines that were administered during the pandemic were completely blank.”
‘Deadly Side Effects’
The inserts were blank because “safety trials for the vaccines were not completed when the vaccines were granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA),” said Bigtree.
The FDA granted an EUA instead of full approvals to the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and Moderna vaccines during the pandemic in order to distribute the vaccines widely and quickly, says Bigtree.
“This means manufacturers had no idea whether the product was safe or effective at the time that their product was being given to hundreds of millions of people around the world,” said Bigtree. “We now know these products have been causally related to incidents of myocarditis, blood clotting, and anaphylaxis, to name but a few of the potentially deadly side effects now being witnessed worldwide.”
‘Immunity From Liability’
AstraZeneca executive Ruud Dobber told Reuters in 2020 the company could “simply not take the risk” of liability claims if “in four years the vaccine is showing side effects.”
Belgium eventually exempted the company from liability for their product. The United States granted manufacturers immunity through the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act. Other countries also granted immunity.
Responsibility for any problems with the vaccines was shifted from manufacturers to governments, says Bigtree.
“Of all the industries to be granted immunity from liability it is hard to imagine any more worrisome than the pharmaceutical industry,” said Bigtree. “… [A]ll fault related to poor testing standards, false advertising, and any harm caused by the products must be blamed on the government and its regulatory agencies. …”
‘Incorporated Into DNA’
The mRNA shots should not even be referred to as vaccines but as gene therapy, said David Gortler, Pharm. D., and scholar at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and former senior advisor to the FDA commissioner, on the panel.
“They should have gone through a gene therapy review process at the FDA and should have been advertised as gene therapy to the public from the very beginning,” said Gortler.
The mRNA could be incorporated into the human genome, said Jane Orient, M.D., executive director of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons.
“The vaccines contain engineered genetic material (mRNA or DNA) that uses the cell’s protein factory to make viral spike protein,” said Orient. “The material is widely distributed in tissues. It was claimed not to be incorporated into DNA, but there is evidence that it is.”
‘Nobody Should Be Getting’
The safety profile for the COVID-19 mRNA shots is “unacceptable” and nobody should get them at this point, Gortler told Health Care News.
“Now that the original (Wuhan-type) strain of COVID-19 has been shown to be extinct, and the adverse event and safety profile monumentally is unacceptable,” Gortler said. “Nobody should be getting these mRNA shots either in the form of the original or multivariate forms.”
The shots currently offered are mismatched to existing strains of the coronavirus, says Gortler.
“Today’s multivalent shots inexplicably contain mRNA from the original, long mutated away and extinct COVID-19 disease,” said Gortler.
Left, Right Question Shots
More research is needed to determine if there is any benefit to the shots, says Gortler.
“Multivariate epidemiology studies comparing safety need to be heeded to answer who (if anyone) would have benefited from mRNA shots for COVID-19 before they were mandated by the Biden White House,” said Gortler. “But, at very least, these COVID mRNA shots do not need to be given to any individual who expresses antibodies via acquired natural immunity.”
Johnson’s website lists 11 government and industry leaders who declined to participate in the roundtable, and the media mostly ignored the discussion, says Gortler.
“There were several people on Sen. Johnson’s panel who are liberal and or left-wing with at least two Bernie Sanders supporters that I know of,” said Gortler. “That fact should destroy any regurgitated mainstream media narrative stating that it is just a bunch of right-wingers complaining and wrong.”
