FDA Commissioner Robert Califf and CDC Director Rochelle Walensky joined in issuing a strong rebuke to Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo for issuing a health alert that the system His state’s surveillance reported a significant uptick in adverse events in concert with the launch. of Covid mRNA injections.
“In Florida alone, there was a 1,700% increase in VAERS reports following the release of the COVID-19 vaccine, compared to a 400% increase in overall vaccine administration during the same period of time,” the alert added and provided a graphic.
“Reports of life-threatening conditions increased by more than 4,400%,” the alert continued. “This is a new increase and was not seen during the 2009 H1N1 flu vaccination campaign. There is a need for additional unbiased research to better understand the short- and long-term effects of COVID-19 vaccines.”
The health alert attached three medical studies that assessed “excess risk” and “increased risk” of adverse events associated with Covid mRNA injections.
According to a study, Fraiman J et al, Vaccine. In 2022, COVID-19 mRNA vaccines were associated with an excess risk of serious adverse events, including coagulation disorders, acute cardiac injury, Bell’s palsy, and encephalitis. This risk was 1 in 550 individuals, which is much higher than other vaccines. A second study, Sun CLF et al, Sci Rep. 2022, found an increase in acute cardiac arrests and other acute cardiac events after COVID-19 mRNA vaccination. Besides, Dag Berild J et al, JAMA Netw Open. 2022, evaluated the risk of thromboembolic and thrombocytopenic events related to COVID-19 vaccines and found preliminary evidence of increased risk of both coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease.
In October, the state Surgeon General recommended that men ages 18 to 39 receive the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.
“The Florida Department of Health (department) conducted an analysis using a self-controlled case series, which is a technique originally developed to assess vaccine safety,” Ladapo announced in a press release.
“This analysis found that there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of heart-related deaths among men aged 18 to 39 in the 28 days following mRNA vaccination,” the announcement said . “With a high level of overall immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely offset by this abnormally high risk of heart-related death among men in this age group. It was not found that vaccines without mRNA had these increased risks.”
FDA and CDC chiefs attacked Dr. Ladapo in a joint letter dated March 10.
“It is the job of public health officials across the country to protect the lives of the populations they serve, especially vulnerable populations,” the co-authors stated. “Feeding vaccines to vaccines undermines that effort.”
Thus, the letter states that the mission of these “public health agencies” is to diminish “vaccine doubt,” rather than being honest and transparent with the American people about the relative risks of the Covid vaccination for each individual patient.
The letter does not address the scientific research cited by Dr. Ladapo. It also fails to acknowledge the CDC’s own data showing that there is near-universal natural immunity from prior infection in the US population. Nor does it acknowledge that the CDC’s own research shows that natural immunity is superior to vaccinated immunity in many ways.
However, the FDA and CDC pounced on Dr. Ladapo with a controversial defense of vaccination against Covid in all cases, regardless of natural immunity or decreased risk due to age.
“The claim that the increase in VAERS reports of life-threatening conditions from Florida and elsewhere represents an increased risk from COVID-19 vaccines is incorrect, misleading, and could be harmful to the public north- American,” agency chiefs argued.
“Reports of adverse events to VAERS after vaccination do not mean that a vaccine caused the event,” co-authors told Dr. Ladapo, who is a Harvard-trained physician. “Adverse events should be compared to population background rates.”
However, FDA and CDC chiefs acknowledged that there are “rare adverse reactions” to specific Covid-19 vaccines, while providing more information on alternative control systems.
“This VAERS review methodology successfully identifies rare adverse reactions related to specific COVID-19 vaccines (eg, Guillain-Barré syndrome, thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome, and immune thrombocytopenia after Janssen vaccine use COVID-19 or myocarditis, pericarditis, and anaphylaxis after use of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines),” the co-authors wrote. “Information about these adverse reactions is included in fact sheets for healthcare providers who administer the vaccine and vaccine recipients and caregivers. FDA and CDC also continue to publish summaries of key findings from monitoring security and present the data publicly at regularly scheduled advisory committee meetings.”
“In addition to VAERS, FDA and CDC use complementary active surveillance systems to monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines,” the letter added.
“The FDA is conducting active surveillance through the Sentinel BEST (Biologic Effectiveness and Safety) system and in collaboration with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA),” the letter continued. “These efforts complement those of CDC’s Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) and the v-safe text-based monitoring system to conduct adverse event surveillance, as well as the Clinical Immunization Safety Assessment Project ( (CISA). FDA and CDC also collaborate with other non-federal partners, including state and local health departments.”
Agency chiefs then continue to give the same blanket advice about Covid vaccination without acknowledging the disparity in risk between those with and without natural immunity, age demographics and health factors such as obesity. It is the same single council that has usurped the role of states and citizens’ personal doctors.
“Based on the information available for the COVID-19 vaccines that are licensed or approved in the United States, the known and potential benefits of these vaccines clearly outweigh their known and potential risks,” the CDC and FDA state . “Furthermore, not only is there no evidence of an increased risk of death after mRNA vaccines, but the available data have shown just the opposite: that being up-to-date on vaccines saves lives compared to people who were not vaccinated”.
Then the CDC and FDA claim that there is a 9.8 times lower risk of dying from Covid if one is up to date with the latest “boosters”.
“The most recent estimate is that those who are up to date on their vaccination status have a 9.8 times lower risk of dying from COVID-19 than those who are not vaccinated and a 2.4 times lower risk of dying from Covid-19 than those who were vaccinated but had not received the updated bivalent vaccine,” say the co-authors. “Approximately 90% of the deaths from COVID-19, as carefully classified by the CDC, in recent months have occurred among those who were not up to date on their vaccinations. Also, as previously stated, emerging reports indicate a possible reduced risk of post-COVID conditions in vaccinated individuals who survive infection.”
The FDA and CDC are moving the stakes pushing boosters to cover up the failure of “vaccines” to stop infection and transmission of the virus. This is a game that would never end, but happens to benefit Big Pharma’s profits.
Agency chiefs also fail to acknowledge that vaccines did not reduce excess mortality in many countries around the world.
Almost three and a half years into a global pandemic, if Covid vaccines were a miracle drug, death rates from all causes would not remain high. In addition, the Covid vaccination provides only a marginal and fleeting benefit to those without natural immunity, while carrying a risk of short- and long-term side effects.
The FDA and CDC still stubbornly defend Covid mRNA injections while attacking anyone who wants to present a more balanced risk assessment. Medical researchers and scientists are under attack for fueling “vaccine doubt,” while the state continues to oppose adverse event reporting and shield drug companies from liability.
If Covid mRNA injections are as safe and effective as the FDA and CDC say they are, there’s an easy way to prove it: drop the liability shield.
Finally, the CDC admits that natural immunity is superior to vaccinated immunity
