Junk Science? Number 138: Global policy for COVID-19 vaccination needs a thorough review

Global policy for COVID-19 vaccination needs a thorough review

One of the UK’s leading cardiologists is calling for a sensible halt to mRNA vaccination program pending a thorough scientific review of the benefits and side-effects of the novel vaccine.

One of the U.K.’s most eminent Consultant Cardiologists, Dr. Aseem Malhotra, who was also one of the first to take two doses of a SARS-CoV-2  vaccine and promote it on Good Morning Britain on TV, now says that following the rollout of the mRNA vaccine with more evidence on effectiveness and side-effects, the use of the mRNA vaccine in the UK should be halted pending a thorough scientific review.

This approach has been greeted with widespread approval, although the paper’s coverage (1) in the Journal of Insulin Resistance has been blocked.

In a two part review, Malhotra, writes in part 1 that ‘considerable leeway’ was afforded to the development of mRNA vaccines. Here he most certainly is responding to the FDA fortnightly release of the Pfizer phase 3 vaccine trial, (despite originally arguing that the Clinical Trials on the Pfizer mRNA vaccine should not be released for 75 years until forced to under the Freedom of Information Act). In the Pfizer clinical research, multiple more ‘normal’ and stringent practices in vaccine trials were omitted, and the resultant data was presented – along with claims of effectiveness – in ways the FDA normally suggests both ‘mislead’ and ‘overclaim’.

As with many experts, Malhotra argues that mRNA  is a completely novel, never-before-been-tested, delivery mechanism, with ‘concerning biodistribution characteristics’. As such it needs more testing, not less.

In his detailed review, Malhotra aims to gain a better understanding of the true benefits and potential harms of the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) coronavirus disease (COVID) vaccines using a review of all the evidence from randomized trials and real world data with particular emphasis on the Pfizer mRNA vaccine. This could end up being the most comprehensive and thorough review available.

Malhotra concludes a previous finding that we have commented upon before at Junk Science, namely that:

i) ‘In the non-elderly population the “number needed to treat” to prevent a single death runs into the thousands”.

ii) Re-analysis of randomised controlled trials using the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) technology suggests a greater risk of serious adverse events from the vaccines than being hospitalised from COVID-19.

iii) Pharmacovigilance systems and real-world safety data, coupled with plausible mechanisms of harm, are deeply concerning, especially in relation to cardiovascular safety.

The latter point, Malhotra has first-hand experience of, adding ” (this mirrors) a potential signal from the Pfizer Phase 3 trial, (and) a significant rise in cardiac arrest calls to ambulances in England was seen in 2021, with similar data emerging from Israel in the 16–39-year-old age group.

Most damning is his view that  “It cannot be said that the consent to receive these agents was fully informed, as is required ethically and legally”.

As a result he concludes that, “A pause and reappraisal of global vaccination policies for COVID-19 is long overdue”.

30 months of controversy

At the outset, it should be remembered, there were two vaccines – the Dame Sarah Gilbert Oxford vaccine and the mRNA vaccine. Gilbert is a T-cell vaccinologist, who was part of a team that had worked since SARS-CoV-1. Developing a vaccine that boosted your T-cells (your first line of attack against any pathogen), she argued that the Oxford vaccine did not really need a booster, and that it should be widely available to the world at under $5 US per shot.

Critics blamed the vaccine for causing myocarditis in up to one in a thousand people especially young males, but as UK Doctor John Cambell pointed out in the nightly YouTube series, myocarditis is caused by injecting vaccines diectely into the blood stream. This leads to the vaccines going directly to the heart, with a potential for harm. Cambell argued that basic ‘Best Practice’ for vaccination was being ignored – it is called aspiration, where the injector checks that they haven’t gone into a blood vessel with the needle by aspirating (pulling back a little to see if blood is present. In Australia and Canada patients were told it was ‘not necessary (!). In the UK, in an attempt to vaccinate quickly, almost anyone remotely qualified was allowed to give injections. A further obvious point is that young men have more should muscles with greater blood supplies.

Astra Zeneca offered to provide the vaccine on a cost only basis. They have since stated that they therefore cannot afford to conduct necessary research. A further ‘surprise’ complication was that they conducted the clinical trial provide the small booster and the full vaccine in the wrong order. This enabled the FDA, who are now seen to be complicit in the poor standards involved in mRNA testing, to delay approval of the Oxford vaccine. Pfizer was thus ‘first to market’.

Research, research, research

Since the start of the vaccination program using mRNA there have been reports of injury, heart problems in the young and other side-effects which would rapidly end the use of traditional vaccines. Not with the American shot.

On August 23, 2021, the FDA announced the approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, with the approved vaccine (no longer an ’emergency vaccine’ to be marketed as Comirnaty, for the prevention of COVID-19 in individuals 12 years of age and older. But the vaccine is still not marketed as Comirnaty. To do so would render Pfizer liable for damages, and no longer the Government. Another explanation for this could be that the shot could also include non-FDA approved compounds; who knows?

In March of 2022, the UK Government produced data that showed ‘fully vaccinated’ people (most usually 2 shots of AstraZeneca with an mRNA booster) were 23 million, compared to 22 million ‘unvaccinated (less that 3 shots). Total UK npopulation is approximately 65 million.

In the 6 months to March,

* The number of Covid cases in the vaccinated group was just over twice the number in the unvaccinated group.

* The number of hospitalizations was almost three times higher in the vaccinated group

* The number of deaths in the over 60 age group was four higher than in the unvaccinated group.

To repeat, these are UK Government published figures.

In October 2017, Dr. Marcia Angell of Harvard Medical School and former Editor in Chief of the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine published an article in the New York Review of books entitled, ‘Drug Companies and Doctors: A Story of Corruption.’ Angell stated that ‘We can no longer trust cancer drug clinical trials’. As the former Editor, she should know!

140 countries now do not agree with the American sanctions on Russia; most of these also do not take the American vaccine; many refused American GM foods.

We are reminded of three quotes by Henry Kissinger, a major ‘designer’ of American Foreign Policy:

  • America has no permanent friends or enemies, just interests and assets
  • It’s not a matter of what is true that counts, but what is perceived to be true
  • US strategy towards the third world should be one of depopulation

Maybe it’s time to stop following America. Ivermectin, for example, was widely used in India, who openly admitted they were NOT following the WHO stance on the mRNA vaccine – research on Ivermectin was reviewed in the UK by Dr Tess Lawrie (2).

mRNA is a dangerous vaccine. By all past standards of vaccine approval, it would already have been banned. Thank goodness for people like Malhotra – and let’s hope he stays alive long enough to complete his review.
