You’ve heard said likely hundreds of times by now: The vaccine is safe. There are radio commercials, TV advertisements, billboard signs, and, of course, plenty of politicians boasting of both the efficacy and the harmlessness of the several novel vaccines being used throughout the United States.
Hell, Democrat President Joe Bide even swore to us they were safe. He said, “The bottom line is this – I promise you: They are safe. They are safe. And even more importantly, they’re extremely effective.”
But is that actually true?
As you likely know, the Johnson & Johnson version, which only required one shot, has already been blocked from further distribution, as it started proving to be harmful in more than a few cases. This, plus other inconsistencies with the vaccines, has even led several European countries to ban the vaccine altogether.
And now, it’s looking as though the same action should be taken here in the US.
Well, there seems to be a growing concern that the mRNA COVID-19 (both Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech) vaccinations could be particularly harmful to young males.
In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC are set to hold an emergency meeting on June 18 to discuss the growing number of reports that myocarditis and pericarditis are developing in recently vaccinated younger patients. Per the CDC, myocarditis is the “inflammation of the heart muscle,” and pericarditis is the “inflammation of the outer lining of the heart.”
According to the CDC fact sheet on their website related to the concern, most cases of these heart inflammation diseases occur in “male adolescents and young adults age 16 years or older,” usually several days following their second vaccination dose.
On Thursday, Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, a CDC’s vaccination safety team member, updated the situation to a Food and Drug Administration advisory committee.
He noted that at the time, about 12 million people within the affected age group had been vaccinated so far. Of those, 789 were reported to develop either myocarditis or pericarditis in the days following their vaccine – 488 receiving Pfizer and 301 who received Moderna.
The CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) received 475 preliminary reports of myocarditis and pericarditis before May 31. Of those, 226 met the CDC’s working case definition of the disease. Two hundred eighty-five cases had a “known disposition.” And 270 of those had been discharged, leaving 15 still hospitalized and three in an intensive care unit.
Shimabukuro points out that it’s important to note that so far, these are just preliminary reports.
“It’s a bit of an apples to oranges comparison because again these are preliminary reports. Not all of these will turn out to be true myocarditis or pericarditis reports.”
However, even if a few do turn out to be the real deal, it’s a few too many, especially when you consider that most of these individuals were once healthy adolescents or young adults who likely didn’t really even need the vaccine, to begin with.
And these aren’t the only reports.
The nation of Israel has reported myocarditis forming in young men at much higher rates than usual. As Tucker Carlson of Fox News said, “Researchers determined that the incidence of myocarditis in vaccinated young men was fully 25 times the usual rate. Some of them died.”
A doctor in Canada has also begun reporting a similar trend.
And yet, thanks to Biden’s insistence that the vaccine is safe and viable, some American universities and companies are forcing students and employees to be vaccinated before they are allowed to return to classes, participate in school athletics, or come to work.
As Tucker recently implied, the growing risk of developing either heart condition could make the vaccine much more dangerous to some young adults than contracting the virus ever would.
And he has a point.
Most of these individuals, if left to their own devices, might contract COVID-19. They might get a fever; they might lose their sense of taste and smell; they might even be stuck in bed for a few days. But isn’t that much better than being put on your deathbed in a hospital for taking a vaccine that was supposed to save your life?
As Carlson says, thanks to the many universities and such pushing vaccinations, they now have “no choice but to take a drug other government have concluded in dangerous for them to take.”
And why? Well, because Democratic President Biden says it’s safe…
Hopefully, this emergency CDC meeting will result in some answers and more actual safety for the American people.
