Medical staff are the number one group refusing the vaxx.
No one is asking why.
A group of 117 unvaccinated staffers from Houston Methodist Hospital filed a lawsuit Friday seeking to avoid the hospital’s coronavirus vaccine mandate, saying it’s unlawful for bosses to require the shots.
The staffers join a growing list of employees challenging compulsory immunizations at businesses, colleges and other workplaces essential to the country’s reopening. Vaccine mandates have faced mounting resistance from anti-vaccination groups and some Republican politicians, even as health officials promote the proven safety of the vaccines and millions of Americans line up to get the shots every week.
It’s not “proven safe.” That is stupid, and it is inappropriate for the WaPo to editorialize like that.
This vaxx has killed more people than every previous vaxx combined. The VAERS system shows that it’s killing dozens of people a day, just in the US. The Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca vaxxes have been taken off of various markets because they were unsafe.
Meanwhile, no one has any idea what the long term effects are, because there is no long term test.
This is the first medicine in all of history that has skipped all of these tests, and for the media and the government to tell medical professionals that their fears are ridiculous is nuts.
The lawsuit against Houston Methodist was filed by Jared Woodfill, a Houston-area attorney and conservative activist. It appears to mirror a legal strategy used by a New York-based law firm, Siri & Glimstad, that is closely aligned with one of the country’s biggest anti-vaccination organizations but unaffiliated with the Houston litigation.
The complaint, filed in state court, says Houston Methodist’s vaccine mandate violates a set of medical ethics standards known as the Nuremberg Code, which was designed to prevent experimentation on human subjects without consent. The code was created after World War II in response to the medical atrocities Nazis committed against prisoners in concentration camps.
“Methodist Hospital is forcing its employees to be human ‘guinea pigs’ as a condition for continued employment,” the complaint states. It adds that the mandate “requires the employee to subject themselves to medical experimentation as a prerequisite to feeding their families.” Elsewhere, it falsely characterizes the coronavirus vaccines as an “experimental COVID-19 mRNA gene modification injection.”
How can the media simply state outright this is “false”?
Experts said the notion that the vaccines were “experimental” or based on an untested technology was incorrect.
“This claim is absurd indeed,” Akiko Iwasaki, an immunologist at Yale University, told The Washington Post.
“There were tens of thousands of people who were in the Phase 3 clinical trials for the mRNA vaccines, and no safety concerns were found,” Iwasaki told The Washington Post in an email.
What about VAERS though?
And just all the deaths that have been reported besides?
The media acts like this vaxx has no side effects at all.
An experimental vaccine is one that has not gone through clinical trials and authorization or approval processes. While the coronavirus vaccines used in the United States have not received full approval from the Food and Drug Administration, they have completed rigorous clinical trials and have been authorized for emergency use. Pfizer this month asked the FDA for full approval of the coronavirus vaccine it developed with German company BioNTech.
“After the emergency use authorization of these vaccines, there have since been 100s of millions of people being vaccinated with the mRNA vaccines with excellent safety record,” Iwasaki said.
The assertion that the vaccines alter DNA is also untrue. The mRNA vaccines produced by Pfizer and Moderna are not capable of changing a patient’s DNA, and they do not enter the part of the cell where DNA resides.
“The mRNA vaccines we currently have are as safe or safer than any previously used vaccine,” said Aileen Marty, an infectious-disease expert at Florida International University.
But it has more side effects!
More adverse reactions have been reported to the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) since the deployment of the coronavirus vaxx than all the combined reports in history.
People can go check it themselves – it’s online!
Previous studies have shown that only 1% of total adverse events get reported there! And we see people dying and the government claiming it’s a coincidence!
Marc Boom, president and CEO of Houston Methodist, said it was legal for health-care institutions to require vaccines. Houston Methodist has done so for the flu vaccine for more than a decade.
“As health-care workers, it is our sacred obligation to do whatever we can to protect our patients, who are the most vulnerable in our community,” Boom said in an email Saturday. “We proudly stand by our employees and our mission to protect our patients.”
Boom announced the mandate at the end of March, setting a June 7 deadline for employees to get the shots. As of Saturday, 99% of Houston Methodist’s 26,000 staffers had met the requirements, Boom said.
“It is unfortunate,” he said, “that the few remaining employees who refuse to get vaccinated and put our patients first are responding in this way.”
In their lawsuit, the vaccine holdouts say Boom’s order presented them with a choice: Either get a vaccine they believe may be unsafe or lose their job.
They accuse the hospital system violating state law, as well as federal public health law related to the use of medical products in emergencies, saying coronavirus vaccines have only been authorized for emergency use and therefore cannot be mandated. They want the court to issue an order barring Houston Methodist from terminating the unvaccinated employees.
The lead plaintiff is Jennifer Bridges, a Houston Methodist nurse whose public opposition to the hospital’s vaccine mandate has attracted hundreds of donors on GoFundMe. She told The Washington Post this month that she’s willingly submitted to “every vaccine known to man,” but believes the coronavirus vaccines need further study. Other plaintiffs include receptionists, technicians, administrative workers and nurses at the hospital, which is part of the Texas Medical Center, one of the largest medical complexes in the world.
Most employers have avoided mandates, but many universities have implemented them.
An update to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s vaccine guidelines may give employers more wiggle room. The agency said Friday that employers could require their staffers physically entering the workplace to be vaccinated for the coronavirus so long as they make accommodations for an employee’s disability and religious beliefs.
Meanwhile the government itself is not requiring anyone to get vaxxed, and according to Anthony Fauci, half of his own employees are refusing it.
No one asked him why they’re refusing it, but one would have to assume it’s for the same reason everyone else is refusing it: it’s a rushed experimental treatment for a disease that isn’t dangerous. Even if you believe every single statement from the government and media (which would be a strange thing to do, as many of them are contradictory), this supposed virus poses no risk to healthy people.
The vaccine, on the other hand, is killing young people by the thousands. And no one has any idea what the effects will be in ten or twenty years. Many medications that have gone through full 10-year trials have ended up having long term effects that didn’t show on the trial.
