Egregious Medical Tyranny Holds Patient Hostage in a Hospital and Refuses Her Preferred Medical Treatment – Patient DIES Under Their Protocol

Veronica Wolski was denied specific treatment – AND denied the freedom to leave the hospital.

A tragic unfolding of events has occurred surrounding Veronica Wolski, a freedom activist who has largely expressed her views against masks, vaccines and vaccine mandates.

After falling ill and being sent to the AMITA Health Resurrection Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, Veronica Wolski was denied her choice in care and was also denied being released of her own free will to a medical team that was already lined up to take care of her illness and her wishes. She passed away on Sunday, September 13, 2021 – allegedly from pneumonia; after weeks of being denied release and denied her preferred treatment of Ivermectin.

The Resurrection Medical Center not only imposed a medical tyranny and abuse of power in withholding preferred medical treatment, but also exercised an egregious amount of authoritative control by preventing the patient from denying their protocol. This is basically like saying if you had cancer, out of all of the available treatments you have at your disposal, but you get admitted to a certain hospital, they are “allowed” to do only their protocol treatment on you, regardless if that is what you want or not. And not letting you leave and instead making you undergo their experiment procedure.

This outrageous misconduct and malfeasance was nothing less than keeping her a prisoner and demanding that she use their protocol, or else.

And as we can see, being forced to use their protocol ended up in a harrowing and heartbreaking ordeal, not only for Veronica Wolski and her loved ones, but also for the individuals vouching for her rights and freedom.

The below videos show two advocates who were trying to stand up to the medical tyranny that undoubtedly led to the death of Veronica Wolski.

Thank you to the Stew Peters Show and Dr. Lee Vliet and Attorney Nancy Ross for bringing this to our attention. Who knows how many others were subjected to this abuse, and ended up dying alone in the hospital while the establishment enforced their unsafe and disturbing “treatment” on unwilling patients.

Killed by Tyranny – Veronica Wolski’s Doctor Speaks Out

Transcript provided below. Some embellishment has been added for emphasis:

Stew Peters: “Well, Americans are witnessing the unthinkable in our hospitals and our healthcare systems around the country as patients seem to be held hostage by doctors driven by a political machine, rather than the upholding of an oath.

Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet MD is president and CEO of the Public Charity Truth for Health Foundation, which can be found at truthforhealth.org and an independent practicing physician actively treating COVID patients and providing educational programs for patients. Community health groups and health professionals.

Dr. Vliet was assisting in the efforts to save the life of Veronica Wolski in Chicago who passed away without ever being provided the treatment she or her advocates were requesting. And Dr. Vliet joins us now.

Thank you so much for being here, we really appreciate it.”

Dr. Lee Vliet: “Thank you, Stew. I’m honored to be able to help in getting the horror out to the public of what happened to Veronica Wolski, in Resurrection Hospital in Chicago last weekend.

Our team was requested by the attorneys to be involved, beginning on Wednesday afternoon. On Thursday afternoon we had a medical care team with critical care, ICU doctor, independent critical care nurses, nurses on the ground willing to coordinate her medical care in the setting, delivery capability for high flow oxygen, IV fluids, medications. Everything she was being denied in the hospital, our team had ready by Friday.

And at every turn, I was personally involved in helping the patient’s power of attorney. Our team was involved and our attorneys were also involved trying to help the patient’s power of attorney, whom you’ll meet later, who was a warrior for Veronica, help her get the patient released from the prison of this hospital, which it had become.

Veronica, I heard, I was conferenced in on a conversation that took place, I heard it, Veronica was asking to be released today. And she was denied, she was pressured into intubation, she refused it; I heard her myself and she asked for the treatment that her power of attorney was fighting heroically. I heard the doctors deny it.

Every single step that the patient requested, that the power of attorney requested, was violated in her legal rights to request treatment. She was denied release even though the power of attorney made it clear she was being released home to hospice, and the patient knew she might die at home, she asked to die in freedom. Not as a prisoner.

And, quite frankly, I heard the doctor brow-beating the patient’s power of attorney on Sunday afternoon saying, “Well, we can’t get hospice here. And that’s not our process, and that’s not what we do.” And I happen to know medically for a fact that what she was telling the power of attorney was not factually correct.

Therefore, in my opinion medically, they willfully denied treatment to this patient. And then the power of attorney learned that afternoon when she finally got into the hospital to see her, that standing outside her door, that they had taken away the IV fluids. And medically, we all know that if you deprive a patient of IV fluids who’s already dehydrated, which her laboratory data showed, then they’re going to go down quickly, no matter how high flow the oxygen is. You can’t deliver it if there’s inadequate fluid volume in the blood stream.

And they had not treated a rising white count bacterial pneumonia – I mean they – the oversight and the negligence medically, was staggering. I have never in my career seen anything as egregious as what our team, our whole team, was witness to from Thursday through Sunday in this situation. And ironically, we were also brought in on other hospital situations in other states, in the same time frame. The same talking points were being used with the patients; the same denial of the patient’s power of attorney access to the patient.

In fact, at one hospital, in Arizona, the patient’s power of attorney was escorted out of the hospital in handcuffs! This medical tyranny has got to stop, and Truth for Health Foundation is fighting that battle. We have a medical censorship defense fund to help doctors like Dr. McCullough and others who have been sued for speaking out. We will defend patients and their families, and their rights to have their power of attorney request honored. And, we know, our team was guiding the resources on the ground in Illinois to set up an entire mobile unit to take care of this patient. And she was denied leaving the hospital under bogus descriptions from the team there.

Stew Peters: “This – this is horrific; what you’re describing. And I – I’m sorry but, with TV and radio, I’ve got part breaks that I’m coming up against right now. Truthforhealth.org is your website. I encourage everybody to go visit that.

Dr. Vliet, thank you so much for being here – I gotta go. Uh, we really appreciate you coming forward and I hope to have you back soon. Thank you so much. God bless you.”

Dr. Lee Vliet: “Thank you.”

EXCLUSIVE! Veronica Wolski’s Power of Attorney Speaks Out After Tyrannical Killing

Transcript provided below. Some embellishment has been added for emphasis:

Stew Peters: “Well, an extremely emotional week in Chicago left us saying goodbye to Veronica Wolski; best known for her signage over the Kennedy Expressway on the People’s Bridge. 

Wolski became the center of controversy when she was denied the medical treatment being requested by her power of attorney, Nancy Ross, who joins us now.

Nancy, I know that it’s been a really emotional couple of weeks, specifically the last 24 hours, so I want to thank you for coming here to talk with us today. We know that you didn’t have to do that.”

POA Nancy Ross: “Thank you, Stew, very much. And thank you to your audience and all those really around the world who have been fighting for Veronica. Veronica always said, “Never be silent.” You know, “Never quit. Never give up.” And she fought to the very end. 

She had a prescription for Ivermectin at home. She’d been requesting to the hospital if she could bring that. My understanding is that was denied.

But I’ll back up. First she became sick, she thought she had a sinus infection, she tested positive for COVID, went home, and two days later had shortness of breath. And went into the hospital. Very quickly she was put on high levels of oxygen, was my understanding. And they began Remdesivir.

She called me, she told me she didn’t want the medicine: “I don’t want this. I want them out.” I have multiple texts from her saying, “Get me out of here.” / “Get me home.” / “Bring me oxygen.” / “Get medical transport. Take me out.”

I didn’t know what was going on. I tried to contact family and friends, and was assured that they were following frontline protocols, and that she would be getting some of the treatment she really wanted. It was all very confusing, very disturbing.

I finally told her, “I’m coming to Chicago. And I’ll help however I can.” She asked me then to be her POA so we can arrange to have after care for her to get her out and to get her after care. And there were so many roadblocks, over the next 10 days. It was, um, it was very difficult.

And um, security escorted me out of the building multiple times. After I’d been invited in. After day 2 they told me I was no longer allowed in the hospital, period. I asked what policy I violated, what had I done wrong? I was there to advocate for her. We sent a demand letter to the hospital with 17 different demands, and we were really trying to work with them. But it was clear that Veronica was being denied some treatments; even some food and nutrition that we had to beg for, over many many days.

Stew Peters: “It seems like she was denied… every human right that we’re inherently promised as Americans. Why – did they ever give you an answer on why you were not allowed to be there advocating for her?

Nancy Ross: “They told me after the 2nd day, that Veronica’s of sound mind. Everyone always assured me; and she is a warrior, as everyone knows, for truth and justice and freedom. She knows – she knows her rights. She was advising them on what, you know, she thought could work best for her, and pleading with them. They said she can speak for herself. That I didn’t need to be there and that further conversations would be with her.

Now I understand, you know, my rights at the time were to help her. I’d called for a patient conference for multiple days. Finally after 4 days, I walked in and they had maybe 8 representatives from the hospital system there to speak with me. And some of our, just even basic concerns just were not, were not met.

And we had private duty nurses who were available to go in and just be caretakers; just to sit with her in isolation. You know, as you know, many COVID patients, you know, they are, they’re isolated. And after 10 days, and certainly after 20 days, we felt like it’s time for her to stop being secluded. And at minimum, she needed loved ones, family, friends, and nurses who could at least just care for her. And be with her. Hold her hand, and try to advocate for her. But that was denied as well.”

Stew Peters: “I just can’t wrap my head around any of this. It – it’s – this is happening in America.

And if the justification for removing you was that Veronica Wolski could speak for herself, then why was it that her demands, her requests that she was speaking for herself, were not honored? And fell on deaf ears? And she didn’t – she was denied the right to try. She was denied the ability to make freedom choices after her own health!

I mean – I don’t, I don’t understand how they can get away – this is criminal! This is absolutely criminal. By every sense of the word.”

Nancy Ross: “On day 2, when I was there, so she would’ve been in the hospital at that point, I believe well over a week, I was able to meet with a very kind infectious disease doctor overseeing her care. And he agreed to prescribe the Ivermectin. Again, even though she had a prescription at home from a different doctor, he agreed to prescribe it in the hospital.

We were, thrilled. We thought we had an – a real advocate there.

And then hours later he was overruled by the AMITA system, who said they are following NIH protocols. And an ethics committee met; we demanded an ethics committee conference. They met without us. We didn’t have a chance to present what we believe was some solid case study.

There also had been a court ruling, in nearby Elmhurst, where a hospital was ordered to give a patient their Ivermectin. My understanding is, that patient came out of a coma after 20 days and is home now playing with her grandkids. Veronica knew this. And she knew that there was hope, and that was denied. She also wanted to be transferred; she wanted to come home on hospice. They told her, oxygen needs were so high she couldn’t leave the hospital. But we felt we had found medical transport to meet her oxygen needs; we had a team ready to care for her. And it seems it was blocked at every turn.”

Stew Peters: “Forgive my ignorance on this, but isn’t there such a thing as AMA – “against medical advice” – that a patient is always afforded the right to just leave? To walk out? I mean, they’re not in jail. She’s not being held in custody. She hasn’t been charged with a crime. And certainly nurses and doctors are not law enforcement. But it seems that they have this unilateral, unchecked authority over patients once they come in and are determined to be “COVID” patients.”

Nancy Ross: “Right. We were told she wouldn’t have oxygen – or may not have oxygen to walk out. I said, “Well, we would have it.” And, by the end, they said, no – no medical transport company, no one will take her, because her – she was so unstable at that point. The needs were so dire.”

Stew Peters: “But you had somebody that would take her. Correct?”

Nancy Ross: “We had, we had an ambulance that said they had the needs that she required. And they said they needed authorization from the hospital, to release her. And we also had a nurse practitioner who was prescribing medications to her, ready on the outside, and many doctors, lawyers. I was blessed to have, just a really incredible team around me. Because I’m – I’m not a medical expert. I’m her friend; I’ve been friends with her for, for some time, and she, you know, she asked for help. I just – I’ve never – I’m just speechless. I’m so sorry.”

Stew Peters: “So you had a hospice – you had an ambulance, rather, that was prepared and ready to take her; you had a practitioner that was prescribing the medications that Veronica Wolski was requesting. All that needed to happen was for authorization from the hospital for her to be released to that equipped ambulance – who said that they were capable of caring for her, and that authorization never came.”

Nancy Ross: “It did not. They said, “We just don’t release her to anybody. We need to know who’s the name of this hospice company? Who is it? Who is it?”

And I did not give the name. I said, “I need to know the proper procedures at the hospital. Who do I talk to for her release?” And, the end of the conversation, it was, “They’re not in till Monday morning at 9.” I said, “She may not make it, till Monday.” And she didn’t. Um, I just have so many questions.”

Stew Peters: “And when you get answers to those questions, would you please come back? Because – [Nancy Ross: “Absolutely.”] – millions of people have the same questions, and demand answers, on – “

Nancy Ross: “They do. If I could help at all, Stew, some – we have very kind people have reached out and said, you know, maybe this will work. You know, initially, when they inform you of the risk of certain medication, like Ivermectin, which, by the way, is issued to other patients at AMITA, for other conditions. It’s just not… um, it’s just not part of their protocol for COVID. It’s not banned. It’s just not part of their protocol. Okay? So when they present you with the risk, you say, “I now have informed consent, thank you very much, I demand to try this. I demand this medication.” Then give them a window. Maybe just 48 hours.

If you want to try budesonide, just 48 hours, to open up my lungs so I can breathe. Waive responsibility to the hospital for that medication, if you have to. You know, not everyone can get lawyers and doctors involved when you’re fighting for your life. But go through those steps. I mean, if you have to go to court. And then I was told you can fire your attending physician. Tell them you want to fire your attending physician in the ICU and have that person replaced immediately, until you can find someone who will listen to you.

Now, this isn’t “wild west” medications we’re talking about. These are, you know, these are some basic things that have shown – have proven results, is my understanding, to help heal COVID patients. And heal them much more quickly than a ventilator.”

Stew Peters: “Yeah. So proven that they have earned a Nobel Prize for saving human life. [Nancy Ross: “Exactly. Exactly.”] Uh, and they are FDA approved. Unlike the Remdesivir, that is part of the NIH protocol, which we think we know why that is happening as well. Horrific.

Really appreciate your courage and for you, as emotional as it must be pulling yourself together in order to come here and answer some of these basic questions. And we hope to hear more from you as you get answers to the many questions that you no doubt have.”

Nancy Ross: “Thank you Stew. And God bless all those who are fighting and all those families who are affected. We’re praying for you and Veronica did not die in vain.”

Stew Peters: “God bless you, Nancy. And no, she did not. Her voice will be heard. Thank you so much.”

I want to expand a little bit on Nancy Ross’s recommendations when in a hospital for an illness; specifically for “COVID”. Their protocols are in place by a deliberate design. From the very same corrupt government/medical/health agencies overseeing the vaccination efforts. As was the struggle that Veronica Wolski and her advocates went through, although there was a doctor who was willing to prescribe the Ivermectin medication, he was ultimately overruled by the health administrators.

This is the bottom line that needs to be addressed when seeking medical care. Veronica was also demanding to use Ivermectin, but it fell on deaf ears. Perhaps a better alternative would be to steer clear of all government funded/public hospitals and seek independent/private physicians with an honest reputation instead if possible; who will actually honor their patient’s wishes. And/or investigate online physicians who will fill out prescriptions and search for pharmacies that will fill them. I would suggest doing this sooner rather than later, so you or your loved one can better be prepared in case of a sudden illness.

Lastly, those who have advocated for the use of Remdesivir and ventilators, you have blood on your hands. There is no better description for the pain and damage you have caused. From the NIH/CDC/FDA/government officials who have approved this protocol (many of who I surmise know exactly what they are doing), to the influencers and social media peddlers/fact-checkers, to the physicians and attendants who have initiated it. 

Anyone who has died using this “treatment” is under the blame of the healthcare system and the government. Likewise, anyone who has suffered ill effects and/or deaths from the incredibly coerced COVID injections have the same groups responsible, along with the pharmaceutical companies.

If you are a doctor, nurse, healthcare worker/administrator, etc. who is just now learning (or have known) about the egregious and heartbreaking tyranny that has led to numerous complications and deaths of hundreds, if not hundreds of thousands of lives due to the illogical and deplorable “rules and guidelines” of these – for lack of a better (yet still politically correct) description – corrupt industries, this is your chance to do the right thing, and refuse to participate.

My heart goes out to these ladies who had to watch as the person they were trying to advocate for fell under the grips of the medical tyrannical authorities who basically imprisoned the patient within their walls and murdered her with their unsafe/dangerous protocols.

My heart also goes out to anyone who has lost loved ones amidst these strange, unethical circumstances. I urge anyone who works within these medical fields to fully contemplate on your choices, and put your life in these people’s shoes. What if the person being held against their will in the hospital was your mother, your father, your child, grandparent, husband, wife…? What if you were held against your own will and denied medical treatment that could have saved your life? Suffering alone and isolated, away from your friends and family, and at the mercy of people “just following orders”?

Is your job worth it? Worth tarnishing your own soul and compassion for fellow human beings that you would be willing to watch them die in the hospital bed? Or will you finally rise up and be brave and realize you don’t want any involvement of these heinous crimes?

Thank you so much to everyone who is speaking out against these malpractices and unbelievably cruel dictatorships. Your bravery and integrity in coming forward shines a light on the steps that we need to take in order to preserve our rights, lives and freedom.

God bless.

Physician Speaks Out Against ‘Vaccine Mandates for All’ – Especially Children and Those With Natural Immunity

In an interview with U.S. News & World Report, Dr. Marty Makary said the CDC’s relentless focus on vaccine-induced immunity and its “demonizing” of those who choose not to get the vaccine make the agency “the most slow, reactionary, political CDC in American history.”

Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and editor-in chief of MedPage Today, is pushing back against the growing drumbeat for mass vaccinations and COVID vaccine mandates.

In an interview with U.S. New & World Reports, Makary said mandating vaccines for “every living, walking American” is not well-supported by science. Makary also expressed concerns about the two-dose vaccine regimen for adolescents.

Makary’s interview this week took place as more public and private employers join the vaccine mandate chorus — the federal government is requiring the jab for federal employees, hundreds of colleges are requiring proof of vaccination for students, the U.S. Department of Defense is gearing up to require COVID vaccines for military members, New York is mandating the vaccine for indoor businesses and some of America’s largest employers are requiring employees get vaccinated or risk losing their jobs.

Makary told U.S. News & World Report that as a physician, he believes “you win more bees with honey than with fire — referring to patients who don’t follow what “we ask them to do.”

Makary believes people “who choose not to get vaccinated are making a poor health decision at their own individual risk.” But he doesn’t believe the unvaccinated pose a public health threat to those who are already immune to the virus.

Makary said:

“Would we be so stern toward people making similar or worse health choices to smoke, drink alcohol or not wear a helmet when riding a bike? Over 85,000 Americans die annually from alcohol, yet we don’t have the same public health fervor or requirements to save those lives. Let’s encourage vaccination rather than activate the personal liberty culture wars that result in people becoming more entrenched in their opposition.”

Makary said that vaccinating everyone — including eventually every newborn — in order to control the pandemic is based on the false assumption that the risk of dying from COVID is equally distributed among the population — but it’s not, he said.

“We have always known that it’s very hard for the virus to hurt someone who is young and healthy,” Makary said. “And that’s still the case.”

Makary suggested taking a similar approach to what is used with the flu shot, which is often mandated for healthcare workers. Makary said while vaccine requirements for healthcare workers make sense, we would never extend those requirements outside of healthcare.

“We’d simply state to the public: Those who avoid the flu shot do so at their own risk,” Makary said.

No scientific support for requiring the vaccine for those with natural immunity

Makary said there is no scientific support for requiring the vaccine in people who have natural immunity — that is, immunity from prior COVID infection. There is zero clinical outcome data to support arguing dogmatically that natural immune individuals “must get vaccinated.”

Makary explained:

“During every month of this pandemic, I’ve had debates with other public researchers about the effectiveness and durability of natural immunity. I’ve been told that natural immunity could fall off a cliff, rendering people susceptible to infection. But here we are now, over a year and a half into the clinical experience of observing patients who were infected, and natural immunity is effective and going strong. And that’s because with natural immunity, the body develops antibodies to the entire surface of the virus, not just a spike protein constructed from a vaccine.”

 

A recent Israeli study affirmed the superiority of natural immunity. Health Ministry data on the wave of COVID outbreaks which began in May 2021, found a 6.72 times greater level of protection among those with natural immunity compared to those with vaccinated immunity.

In June, a Cleveland Clinic study found vaccinating people with natural immunity did not add to their level of protection.

The clinic studied 52,238 employees. Of those, 49,659 never had the virus and 2,579 had COVID and recovered. Of the 2,579 who previously were infected, 1,359 remained unvaccinated, compared with 22,777 who were vaccinated.

Not one of the 1,359 previously infected subjects who remained unvaccinated had a SARS-CoV-2 infection over the duration of the study.

As The Defender reported, a December 2020 study by Singapore researchers found neutralizing antibodies (one prong of the immune response) remained present in high concentrations for 17 years or more in individuals who recovered from the original SARS-CoV.

More recently, the World Health Organization and National Institutes of Health (NIH)  each published evidence of durable immune responses to natural infection with SARS-CoV-2.

In March 2020, the NIH’s Dr. Anthony Fauci shared his view (in an email [p. 22] to Ezekiel Emanuel) that “their [sic] would be substantial immunity post infection.”

Yet despite these recent findings, health authorities are largely ignoring the scientific evidence of natural immunity’s stellar track record. In fact, as the American Institute of Economic Research reported, it appears in order to promote the COVID vaccine agenda, key organizations are not only “downplaying” natural immunity but may be seeking to “erase” it altogether.

Makary said instead of talking about the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, we should be talking about the immune and non-immune.

“Immunity can be proven with a simple antibody test,” Makary said, and “vaccine passports and proof-of-vaccine documents should recognize it.”

Makary said there’s very strong population immunity in most parts of the U.S. and these areas are resistant to the delta variant. Roughly a third to half of Americans who are unvaccinated have natural immunity, based on an analysis of California residents.

According to a study conducted by the state of California in March, 38% of Californians and 45% of Los Angeles residents had natural immunity.

“We’re potentially talking about a large portion of the U.S. population who may be immune to COVID and not know it,” Makary said. “They should be tested to find out, and we should concentrate our vaccination efforts on people who are not immune.”

No strong case for vaccinating kids, Makary says

When it comes to vaccinating healthy kids, Makary says there is not a strong case for vaccinating young people up to age 25.

Makary explained:

“When it comes to vaccinating healthy kids — and you could argue young people up to 25 — there is a case for vaccination but it’s not strong. The COVID-19 death risk is clustered among kids with a comorbid condition, like obesity.

“Of the more than 330 COVID-19 deaths in kids under age 25, there’s good preliminary data suggesting that most or nearly all appear to be in kids with a pre-existing condition. For kids with concurrent medical conditions, the case for vaccination is compelling. But for healthy kids?”

Makary said he’s concerned the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) hasn’t considered whether one- or two-dose shots would be sufficient or safer for young people.

“The agency’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices has vigorously recommended the two-dose vaccine regimen for all children ages 12 and up, regardless of whether kids already have immunity. I take issue with that,” Makary said.

Makary said the data CDC based its recommendation on — the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) — is incomplete at best because it isn’t fact-checked by authorities and may not be fully capturing the extent of vaccine complications from the second dose in young people.

As The Defender reported, Simone Scott, 19, and Jacob Clynick, 13, died shortly after receiving their second COVID vaccine doses after developing heart inflammation.

Makary said he wished the CDC would tell the public more about their deaths, and the 19 others youths under the age of 25 who, according to CDC data, have died after receiving a COVID vaccine.

“Since the clinical trials were not powered sufficiently to detect rare events like these, I want to know more about those deaths before making blanket recommendations,” Makary said.

He added:

“Researching these events is important when issuing broad guidance about vaccinating healthy kids, including students, who already have an infinitesimally small risk of dying from COVID-19.”

Makary perplexed by vitriol directed at those reluctant to get vaccinated

Makary believes that for some, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is the biggest driver of hesitancy in those not willing to get vaccinated as the agency has failed to fully approve COVID vaccines due to stability testing.

Makary didn’t refrain from attacking the CDC either. According to Makary, the CDC’s relentless focus on vaccine-induced immunity and its “demonizing” of individuals who choose not to get a COVID vaccine make the agency “the most slow, reactionary, political CDC in American history.”

In June, Makary blasted the CDC and White House for continuing to push COVID vaccines when it’s not necessary.

“I never thought I’d say this, but please ignore the CDC guidance,” he said.

“The goal of our pandemic response should be to reduce death, illness and disability, but instead what you’re seeing is a movement that has morphed from being pro-vaccine to vaccine fanaticism at all costs.”

CDC Says Vaccinated May be as Likely to Spread COVID as Unvaxxed, as Reports of Serious Injuries after Vaccines Surge

“The bottom line was that, in contrast to the other variants, vaccinated people, even if they didn’t get sick, got infected and shed virus at similar levels as unvaccinated people who got infected”

VAERS data released today by the CDC showed a total of 518,770 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 11,940 deaths and 63,102 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and July 23, 2021.

Data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed total reports of serious injuries following COVID vaccination, across all age groups, spiked by 14,717 — to 63,000 — compared with the previous week.

The data comes directly from reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.

Every Friday, VAERS makes public all vaccine injury reports received as of a specified date, usually about a week prior to the release date. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed.

Data released today show that between Dec. 14, 2020 and July 23, 2021, a total of 518,770 total adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 11,940 deaths — an increase of 535 over the previous week. There were 63,102 serious injuries reported during the same time period — up 14,717 compared with the previous week.

From the 7/23/21 Release of VAERS data

Excluding “foreign reports” filed in VAERS, 435,007 adverse events, including 5,612 deaths and 34,890 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S.

In the U.S., 340.4 million COVID vaccine doses had been administered as of July 23. This includes: 137 million doses of Moderna’s vaccine, 189 million doses of Pfizer and 13 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID vaccine.

Of the 5,612 U.S. deaths reported as of July 23, 14% occurred within 24 hours of vaccination, 20% occurred within 48 hours of vaccination and 34% occurred in people who experienced an onset of symptoms within 48 hours of being vaccinated.

This week’s U.S. data for 12- to 17-year-olds show:

  • 15,086 total adverse events, including 909 rated as serious and 16 reported deathsone less than what VAERS showed last week. Two of the nine deaths were suicides.
  • The most recent reported deaths include a 13-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1463061) who died after receiving a Moderna vaccine, a 16-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1466009) who died after receiving his second dose of Pfizer and a 16-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1475434) who died with an enlarged heart six days after receiving his first Pfizer dose.

Other reports include two 13-year-old boys (VAERS I.D. 1406840  and 1431289) who died two days after receiving a Pfizer vaccine, three 15-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1187918, 1382906 and 1242573), three 16-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1420630, 1225942 and 1386841) and three 17-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1199455, 1388042 and 1420762).

This week’s total U.S. VAERS data, from Dec. 14, 2020 to July 23, 2021, for all age groups combined, show:

Internal CDC document reveals vaccinated, even if not sick, can spread virus

 

The CDC now says even those people fully vaccinated for COVID are able to get, and spread, the virus.

According to internal documents obtained by The Washington Post, the CDC said it’s time to “Acknowledge the war has changed.”

The document outlined unpublished data showing fully vaccinated people might spread the Delta variant at the same rate as unvaccinated people, CNN reported.

It concludes the delta variant is “highly contagious, likely to be more severe” and that “breakthrough infections may be as transmissible as unvaccinated cases.”

The Washington Post reported:

“‘I think the central issue is that vaccinated people are probably involved to a substantial extent in the transmission of delta,’ Jeffrey Shaman, a Columbia University epidemiologist, wrote in an email after reviewing the CDC slides.

“‘In some sense, vaccination is now about personal protection — protecting oneself against severe disease. Herd immunity is not relevant as we are seeing plenty of evidence of repeat and breakthrough infections.’”

Since January, people who got infected after vaccination make up an increasing portion of hospitalizations and in-hospital deaths among COVID patients, according to the CDC documents. That trend coincides with the spread of the Delta variant.

The Post also reported today on a CDC study revealing three-fourths of people infected in a Massachusetts COVID outbreak were vaccinated. The report bolsters the hypothesis that vaccinated people can spread the more transmissible variant, and may be a factor in the summer surge of infections.

The data, detailed in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, provided key evidence that convinced agency scientists to reverse recommendations on mask-wearing and advise that vaccinated individuals wear masks in indoor public settings in some circumstances, The Post reported.

Thus far, researchers have focused on viral load — a term for how much of the virus is present in infected peoples’ bodies — which can affect transmissibility and severity. Infections with the Delta variant lead to higher levels of virus in the body, even in breakthrough cases in fully vaccinated individuals, the document said.

If vaccinated people get infected anyway, they have as much virus in their bodies as unvaccinated people — that means they’re as likely to infect someone else as unvaccinated people who get infected, CNN reported.

“The bottom line was that, in contrast to the other variants, vaccinated people, even if they didn’t get sick, got infected and shed virus at similar levels as unvaccinated people who got infected,” Dr. Walter Orenstein, who heads the Emory Vaccine Center and who viewed the documents, told CNN.

The CDC is scheduled to publish more data today.

Biden says federal workers must get vaccinated or submit to regular testing — postal union, others push back

President Biden on Thursday announced all civilian federal employees will be required to show proof of vaccination against COVID or be forced to submit to regular COVID testing, wear masks and socially distance.

Biden also called on state and local governments to use COVID relief funds to give $100 to residents who get vaccinated. In a statement released by the White House, the administration said the new rules were issued because of the Delta COVID variant, and because unvaccinated people present a problem to themselves, their families and co-workers.

“Every federal government employee will be asked to attest to their vaccination status.  Anyone who does not attest or is not vaccinated will be required to mask no matter where they work; test one or two times a week to see if they have a — they have acquired COVID, socially distance and generally will not be allowed to travel for work,” Biden said.

Biden directed his administration to apply similar standards to all federal contractors. “If you want to do business with the federal government, get your workers vaccinated,” he said.

In one early sign the policy may not go as smoothly as planned, the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) said it opposes the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate as a condition for employment, arguing it isn’t the role of the federal government to mandate vaccines or other testing measures.

“Maintaining the health and safety of our members is of paramount importance,” the APWU said in a statement issued Wednesday. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent.”

In advance of Biden’s official announcement, Children’s Health Defense on Thursday issued a statement disagreeing with the new policy.

The statement quoted CHD Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr:

“Coerced medical interventions have been abhorrent to advocates of liberty and human dignity in every age. The fact that these vaccines are shoddily tested, experimental, unapproved and so risky their manufacturers can neither obtain insurance coverage nor indemnify users against grave injuries or death should magnify our ethical revulsion.”

FDA urges Moderna, Pfizer to include thousands more children in clinical trials

Pfizer and Moderna will expand their COVID vaccine clinical trial to include thousands more children prior to seeking EUA, after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) told the vaccine makers the size and scope of their pediatric studies, as initially envisioned, were inadequate to detect rare side effects.

The rare side effects cited by the FDA included myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle, and pericarditis, inflammation of the lining around the heart, multiple people familiar with the trials told The New York Times.

Expanding the pediatric trials means thousands more children as young as 6 months old may soon be recruited and enrolled in COVID vaccine trials. According to the Times, the FDA asked the companies to include 3,000 children in the 5- to 11-year-old group, the group for whom results were expected first.

Moderna’s shot is authorized for emergency use in people 18 and up, and Pfizer’s vaccine is authorized for children as young as 12. No COVID vaccines have yet received EUA approval for children younger than 12.

America’s Frontline Doctors sue UC over vaccine mandates

With supporting declarations from top medical experts and students, America’s Frontline Doctors(AFLDS) filed a civil rights lawsuit in Federal Court against the University of California (UC), targeting the university system’s plan to mandate COVID vaccination for all students regardless of natural immunity.

As The Defender reported July 28, AFLDS, students and even the UC’s own top doctors, are criticizing the rushed mandate as arbitrary, unscientific and medically unnecessary.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs in this civil rights case cite the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution’s protection of bodily integrity, as well as two California civil rights statutes (Cal. Civ. Code sec. 51, Cal. Gov. Code sec. 11135) that prohibit discrimination on the basis of medical or genetic status.

Accordingly, AFLDS is requesting an injunction to restrain the UC from utilizing coercion and segregation of naturally-immune and unvaccinated people in violation of Federal and State law.

The primary target of the lawsuit is the UC’s unscientific one-size-fits-all vaccine mandate where the UC rejects scientifically accepted prescreening for natural immunity.

The CDC, NIH pull in millions from licensing deals, including COVID-related technologies

Aggregated data for fiscal year 2020 show the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and CDC collected a combined $63.4 million in royalty revenues under a business model that allows the NIH to grant technology licenses to the private sector.

As The Defender reported earlier this week, with 27 different institutes and centers housed under the NIH umbrella — including the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) — NIH is the largest biomedical research agency in the world with an annual budget of nearly $42 billion.

Within NIH, the Office of Technology Transfer plays a “strategic role” in supporting patenting and licensing for inventions that emerge from laboratories at the NIH and CDC. In a win-win business model, the NIH routinely grants technology licenses to the private sector for use or commercialization of its inventions, with those licenses then driving billions of dollars in royalties back to the NIH.

In fiscal year 2020 alone — October 2019 through September 2020 — aggregated data for NIH and CDC show the agencies collected $63.4 million in royalty revenues.

Where public health agencies are concerned, COVID appears to be very good for business, with a flurry of unprecedented funding — conveniently mobilized by the pandemic — ushering in profound and likely permanent changes in a public health infrastructure once lamented as weak and fragmented.

As The Defender reported this week, Pfizer now projects $33 billion in COVID vaccine revenues, a sharp increase over earlier projections. The vaccine maker anticipates booster shots, a vaccine designed for the Delta variant and pending authorization of COVID vaccines for children will drive sales even higher next year.

144 days and counting, CDC ignores The Defender’s inquiries

According to the CDC website, “the CDC follows up on any report of death to request additional information and learn more about what occurred and to determine whether the death was a result of the vaccine or unrelated.”

On March 8, The Defender contacted the CDC with a written list of questions about reported deaths and injuries related to COVID vaccines. We have made repeated attempts, by phone and email, to obtain a response to our questions.

Despite multiple phone and email communications with several people at the CDC, and despite being told that our request was in the system and that someone would respond, we have not yet received answers to any of the questions we submitted. It has been 144 days since we sent our first email to the CDC requesting information.

Children’s Health Defense asks anyone who has experienced an adverse reaction, to any vaccine, to file a report following these three steps.

NOTE FROM Expanding Awareness Relations:

NECESSARY QUESTIONS TO REFLECT ON:

“If vaccinated people get infected anyway, they have as much virus in their bodies as unvaccinated people — that means they’re as likely to infect someone else as unvaccinated people who get infected”

– So why the incessant continual push to get people vaccinated who are willing to risk the virus symptoms? Instead of just dealing with potential symptoms of COVID, the vaccinated individuals are under the risk of NOT ONLY COVID, but ALSO the possibility of DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS from the vaccine. Why can’t individuals make the decision to only risk the COVID infection? Especially since there are BENEFICIAL TREATMENTS to help cure COVID (that is, unironically, being attacked on mainstream media/big tech platforms)? Not to mention that the CDC studies are showing that the vaccine MAY only reduce symptoms in the individual vaccinated – without any benefit to not spreading the virus?

And even if the report from the CDC turns out to be incorrect, do we still want to leave our health in the hands of corporations/organizations who have proven to be not only inept at every single guideline they have initiated during this “pandemic”, but also the numerous times they have flip-flopped, backtracked, retracted, reversed, changed their mind, etc. on their incorrect assessment of the situation, but who is also implementing growing endorsement for an experimental vaccine that has not yet been tested for genuine safety and efficacy? (And on that matter, according to the alarmingly increasing numbers of adverse events reported to VAERS, these vaccines are proving undoubtedly that they are NOT SAFE AND EFFECTIVE.)

Science does not change. And with their (the government health agencies) ever-pervasive push on others to “trust the science”, yet show incredible incompetence as the “experts”, while at the same time denouncing thousands of doctors who HAVE BEEN CORRECT in their conclusions of this COVID/vaccine narrative, I’d say their roles in offering their “expertise” needs to be revoked and more attention needs to be focused on the TRUTHFUL doctors who are giving us more accurate statements than the NIH, CDC, NIAID, WHO, UN, etc.

Of course, in an honest world, this would happen. As it is, the world is seeing a corruption/collusion of unprecedented proportion, that is slowly but surely jolting multiple people awake, yet unfortunately not nearly enough. But the more of us that recognize this deception and who are spreading this awareness will eventually reach those who have remained in the dark, even if it may seem like a fruitless endeavor, and we can continue to make informed decisions while helping others break out of this manipulative system.
