Over the last 18 months, Americans have witnessed one of the largest threats to our liberty. The COVID-19 pandemic has been a convenient means to accomplish widespread infringements on our basic human rights. Though Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill prohibiting vaccine passports at a government level, he has done nothing to ensure an employee’s right to work if they decline the Covid shot. As a healthcare worker, the looming threat of COVID-19 shot mandates has been a deep concern of mine. Recently, Methodist Hospital mandated the injection for their employees with the consequence of job loss for noncompliance. Over 150 employees have been terminated from their positions. There’s a common misconception, one certainly encouraged by the media, that healthcare workers are in support of COVID shot mandates. There’s a misconception that we’re united in our opinions about the injection. Nothing could be further from the truth. 1
The mainstream media would like you to believe that vaccine refusers are ignorant or ill informed. If you decline, you must not care about your neighbor or your neighbor’s vulnerable Grandmother. If you reject the injection, you must lack social responsibility and care for the collective. The “vaccine hesitant” must not care about ending this pandemic. They are “science deniers.” And so goes the media propaganda…
When the vaccine rollout began, many of my colleagues were reasonably cautious about the experimental COVID-19 gene therapy. They weren’t “denying science,” as Dr. Fauci would like you to believe, but were beginning to understand the rushed EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) process and were learning some disturbing information about the new injection. Their research on the subject led them to either wait or skip the vaccine altogether. Here is a small sampling of some of the concerns many (including myself) have had over the COVID-19 injection:
- The COVID shot uses a new mRNA technology that has never before successfully completed trials. Previous attempts at mRNA therapies for SARS-CoV-1 revealed a risk of antibody dependent enhancement in animal trials. In layman’s terms, when a vaccinated individual becomes infected with the wild virus, their body responds with a sort of exaggerated immune response such as a cytokine storm. These revealing animal trials were skipped in the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine trial due to the hurried EUA process. 2
- Growing evidence demonstrates that the spike protein being produced as a result of the COVID-19 gene therapy is likely pathogenic in isolation. Studies are demonstrating that the spike protein portion of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is the likely cause for the vascular issues, such as clots and excessive bleeding, we are seeing in some COVID-19 patients. 3, 4
- There is growing consensus among immunologists that those who have recovered from a COVID-19 infection likely have immunity lasting months to years. T-cell immunity, specifically, may provide non-specific immunity that lasts well beyond the detectability of antibodies. A study from the Cleveland Clinic established that those who have been previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 do indeed have lasting immunity. 5
- Some scientists have raised concerns over potential fertility issues or autoimmune risks. Ingredients, such as polyethylene glycol (PEG), may be implicated in allergies and potential autoimmune reactions.
- VAERS (the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) reports show an alarming rise in vaccine related deaths and adverse events since the COVID-19 shot rollout. There have been more deaths attributed to vaccines since the rollout than deaths attributed to all other vaccines over the past 15 years combined. 6, 7
- A report from America’s Frontline Doctors cited a study that showed that those over the age of 60 have a 14.6 times increase in death within the first 14 days after vaccination when compared to unvaccinated individuals over 60 years of age.
- According to the CDC, 4,115 vaccinated people have either died from or been hospitalized with Covid 19 as of mid June. 8 Almost 4,000 fully vaccinated residents of Massachusetts were recently diagnosed with Covid 19 according to an Epoch Times article.9 There is a growing number of breakthrough cases, suggesting the vaccine may not be as efficacious as some think.
- Thanks to the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, the pharmaceutical companies producing these vaccines will not be held liable for damages. 10 In other words, they cannot be sued over injuries from the gene therapies. The US Court of Claims is responsible for injury compensation, and their lawyers are defending vaccine companies.
Employees have the right to think critically about the decisions they make for their health. The decision to be vaccinated is a personal one, and not one that should be determined by employers. While some may feel the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks, others may not be willing to take the risk. Some, like myself, have already recovered from COVID-19 and choose to rely upon our immune system to fight these infections.
The Nuremberg code of 1949 guarantees our rights to be protected from forced medical procedures, specifically against experimental ones. The code declares that “the voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.”11 Methodist employees, among others, point out that they are being forced to get the experimental COVID injection, denying them the ability to opt out of the experiment while maintaining employment. 12 How is it that businesses are allowed to mandate experimental COVID shots? These products are not FDA approved, and yet businesses such as The Methodist Hospital have already fired hundreds of employees over their declining the vaccine. Many of those who complied with the mandates did so reluctantly. Health care workers have been backed into corners with the threat of losing their incomes and livelihoods. Several Methodist employees, including Jennifer Bridges, the woman leading the recent legal fight against the hospital, report tactics of bribery, ridicule, and intimidation.
Many of my own coworkers have surrendered to the pressure from managers, coworkers, and the media. One colleague was reluctantly vaccinated and suffered very high fevers for a week. She reported being physically unable to get out of bed and drive to an ER. Another coworker felt pressured by the onslaught of company propaganda and found herself in bed for three days, dealing with headache, fatigue, and chills. Most of us have witnessed firsthand patients arriving with chest pain, shortness of breath, and stroke-like symptoms in the days following their COVID shots. Many of these are not reported to the VAERS system. The Urgent Care doctor who diagnosed me with COVID last year advised me not to get the jab, listing some of the reasons mentioned above. Doctors and Scientists are not in agreement over this new technology, but most who raise questions are either censored or professionally reprimanded.
Learning that a federal judge dismissed the Methodist lawsuit was a disappointment to many in my position, but it appears the fight is not over yet. One of the largest health care unions in the country will now be fighting the battle against hospitals that try to mandate COVID-19 vaccines. The president of United Healthcare Workers East, George Gresham, says that hospital systems do not have a right to mandate vaccines for their employees. 13 Similarly, The New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) also opposes hospital mandates. 14 More large employee advocate organizations are voicing their opposition to employer vaccine mandates. America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), a non-partisan group of physicians who oppose the government overreach we’ve seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, strongly oppose employee mandates. They are a voice for reason and are growing louder despite constant media censorship. 15
In April, news from OSHA disturbed many companies seeking to mandate COVID-19 shots. According to an April 12th statement from OSHA, any adverse reaction related to a mandated vaccine may be considered work related. For companies seeking to mandate the injection, this news could create hesitancy. According to OSHA, “If you require your employees to be vaccinated as a condition of employment (i.e., for work-related reasons), then any adverse reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine is work-related. The adverse reaction is recordable if it is a new case under 29 CFR 1904.6 and meets one or more of the general recording criteria in 29 CFR 1904.7.” In contradiction to OSHA’s April 12 statement, they have updated their position on the FAQ page, stating, “OSHA does not wish to have any appearance of discouraging workers from receiving COVID-19 vaccination, and also does not wish to disincentivize employers’ vaccination efforts. As a result, OSHA will not enforce 29 CFR 1904’s recording requirements to require any employers to record worker side effects from COVID-19 vaccination through May 2022.” 16 As they did with the mask mandates, OSHA seems to be appeasing the powers that be. Although OSHA appeared to flip-flop their position on mandates, their April statement on employer liability stirred the pot a bit.
Is there hope for employees in the state of Texas? Regardless of the media censorship, many more scientists, doctors, and politicians are voicing their concerns over the experimental gene therapy. A recent viral video revealed that the inventor of mRNA vaccine technology, Dr. Robert Malone, has concerns about the risk/benefit ratio for children and younger adults. In this interview, he shared concerns about the therapy’s production of toxic spike protein in the body. 17 This spike protein, being pathogenic in isolation, may lead to vascular issues such as clotting, bleeding, strokes, or heart inflammation. In an interview with Jan Jekielek of American Thought Leaders, Dr. Malone dives into the details of his concerns over the new vaccine. He also discusses the gaslighting he’s received for his very public criticism of the mRNA vaccine studies. 18 Recently, Dr. Malone’s account was removed from LinkedIn. 19 Wikipedia has likewise deleted his name from their mRNA vaccine history article. 20 Dr. Malone’s heavily censored commentary is a reminder that there is no clear cut consensus about the safety of COVID 19 vaccines. His interview is a much needed reminder that we are not alone in this fight. Many are boldly proclaiming a different narrative than what Facebook, Twitter, MSNBC, CNN, Google, Yahoo, and even Linkedin want us to believe.
Regardless of one’s decision to get vaccinated, it should be a choice. There are obvious risks to this procedure, and every employee should have the liberty to make an informed decision for him or herself. Healthcare is personal, and where there is a risk, there must be a choice. We should be choosing the vaccine because the research is thorough, credible, and lacking conflicts of interest—because the product has shown itself to be reliable and safe. Instead, we’re being coerced, bullied, bribed, and shadow banned. Scientific information is being censored at a rate we can’t even keep up with. The tactics employed by the government and mainstream media ought to make us wonder why such coercion is necessary.
Though Methodist Hospital boasts a 99% compliance rate, remember that many of their employees were likely vaccinated against their judgement. As the pressure mounts in my workplace, more men and women are surrendering to the groupthink. My encouragement to you would be to pray and get active! No matter if you have chosen to receive the injection or not, this is an issue you ought to care about. Forced pharmaceutical drugs violate our right to bodily autonomy and informed consent. If you aren’t concerned about this injection, please know that there are hundreds more down the pipeline in the process of seeking approval. If we don’t put a stop to this now, you may find yourself backed into a corner you don’t wish to be in later. Sign the petitions, attend the rallies, call and email your members of congress, and vote! There are new gubernatorial candidates who have expressed their commitment to protecting our medical freedom. Perhaps most of all, we need to speak the truth. There are plenty of narratives being reported by the mainstream media, and almost none of them include the real risks I’ve just shared. The risks of the COVID injection have been extremely downplayed and outright censored from most online platforms. We can no longer afford to stay silent.
We’ve seen unprecedented apathy throughout this pandemic, and if we rest now, our children and grandchildren may never know the liberties we’ve relished all our lives. The far left is organized and loud. Though they are smaller in numbers that you’d think, they have penetrated every corner of society. They run our governments, our education systems, social media, mainstream media, the entertainment industry, our library systems, and many big businesses. Recently, I stumbled across a meme that showed a large fish eating one of the tiny fish in a school of fish. Below that image was a picture of the tiny fish mobilizing to form what looked like a giant fish to the large fish. The large fish was swimming away because it feared what looked like a giant fish. My eyes teared up a bit when I studied that little meme. Let’s be those mobilized fish! There are many of us freedom lovers simply sitting on the sidelines, waiting for politicians to work miracles. As one of my favorite podcasters, Heidi St. John, puts it, “it’s time to get off the bench and onto the battlefield.” Freedom is fragile and it is not free.
