Mandated Vaccinations. Who is Responsible for Their Risks?

Mandated Vaccinations. Who is Responsible for Their Risks?

Opinion | If I am mandated to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in order to keep my job, and subsequently experience an adverse event, who is responsible? Who is responsible if I have neurological complications, a heart attack, or a stroke and am never able to work again. Who is responsible if I die?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve read that neither the vaccine companies, the government entities imposing the mandates, nor the employers themselves will be held responsible in any way if the worst happens. In fact, from what I’ve seen and read so far, it will take a Herculean effort to prove that my adverse reaction was caused by the vaccine. Correlation does not equal causation, they say. But when you are counted as a COVID-19 death, correlation ALWAYS equals causation.

Recently there was a lawsuit filed against the federal government accusing the government of covering up the fact that 45,000 people have died within the first three days of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.1 There are over 13,000 deaths reported to VAERS (vaccine adverse event reporting system) on the CDC website.2 This number is widely believed to include only 1-10 percent of the actual deaths that have occurred. And then there are hundreds of thousands of transient to severe reactions reported to VAERS.  That being said, I can easily find article after article debunking the accuracy of these statistics. Anyone can report anything in the VAERS system, they say, so obviously it is not going to be perfect. But it is the ONLY avenue people have to account for their experiences. A line item on a discounted reporting system is the ONLY recourse one has when they believe they’ve lost their loved one to this “safe and effective” vaccine.

If the validity of every single one of these adverse events is going to be questioned, then can someone please direct me to the “verified” information? Where can I find the non-refuted deaths, heart attacks, blood clots, and neurological problems that HAVE been associated with the vaccine?  You can’t expect the general public to believe there are zero. So where is the data? In my mind, for each doctor, government official, and layperson to claim that these vaccines are safe, the risk of death needs to be zero. The risk of an adverse event needs to be zero. If that is not the truth, then the truth needs to be spelled out in black and white. Where is it? Informed consent. Where is it?

I’ve heard the following argument for getting the vaccination a nauseating amount of times. The argument is that the deaths and risks from the vaccine pale in comparison to the deaths from COVID-19. If you knew ahead of time that you or your child were going to die from this vaccine would your heart be comforted by the fact that “so many more people died from the virus?” This debate is illogical on a personal level. This is a decision that should be based on each and every one of our own personal risk and benefit analyses. Speaking of children, in the 2017-2018 flu season 643 children died.3 As of last month, 335 children had died from COVID-19.4 Mass vaccinating children with an experimental product, who are at little-to-no risk of harm from this virus, is in my opinion, grossly negligent.

There is now compelling evidence that the vaccinated spread the virus with the same viral load as the unvaccinated. So what the heck does it matter if I get the vaccine or not, if it is not protecting the people around me at all. The argument that the vaccinated are protecting the unvaccinated is moot. Why are the same ineffective vaccines still being pushed? And now there is talk of boosters. Government contracts perhaps.

Another argument is that the unvaccinated are getting sick more often and taking up hospital bed space. I’ve heard the opposite as well. The truth is elusive. To this I say, 78 percent of those who have been hospitalized with COVID-19 are overweight or obese.5 As many as 95 percent of those who die are obese. So before we blame the unvaccinated for hogging up all of the hospital bed space, let’s first blame the obese. But that’s not appropriate to mention.  It’s much more acceptable to call those that are concerned about the side effects of the vaccine, selfish and deserving of death. Additionally, 80 percent of those that get COVID-19 have low vitamin D levels in their body. How about we focus on this metric and see if we can drastically reduce the number of those that are becoming ill? But there’s no money to be made on vitamin D.6

I have watched countless videos, and read many more stories from health care professionals as well as individuals who believe these vaccines are causing grave harm. And this is only in the first year. Many more virologists, doctors and scientists purport that the majority of the deaths are still to come due to clotting, antibody dependent enhancement and a general weakening of the immune system. And the coming boosters will increase these risks. This information continues to be censored and suppressed. I’ve written in this space before about the global suppression of early treatment options and how 85 percent of those who have died from COVID-19, died needlessly without the aid of effective early treatment.

And why in the world are we not talking about natural immunity? Testing for natural immunity? Accepting it as an alternative to the vaccine? Natural immunity is robust and durable. They say “we don’t know how long it lasts.”  Well then I hope they are testing vigorously to find out. We already know the vaccine is failing before natural immunity. Conservatively, 100 million Americans have been exposed to this virus and are therefore immune. Those who had SARS-CoV-1 in 2002-2003 were still immune 17 years later, and those who survived the influenza pandemic of 1918 were still immune to the H1N1 outbreak in 2009-2010 a stunning 92 years later. Why is this conversation non existent? Especially when we are at a crossroads between those who are willing to get the vaccine and those who aren’t. My family has already had the virus and under normal circumstances, the medical community would agree that we are now most likely immune. For some reason natural immunity through infection is all of a sudden questioned.

You aren’t being forced to get the vaccine, they say. You just can’t have a job they say. Well if that’s not medical coercion, then please tell me what is. Most people need to make money to eat.

Lastly, there is the issue of variants. Variants of viruses with animal reservoirs such as COVID-19 will exist until the end of time. They will never go away. I’ve read that vaccinating during the height of a pandemic causes stronger variants. The virus has not had a chance to weaken, which normally takes 2-3 years. The vaccine is applying non lethal pressure to the virus, which is encouraging the creation of stronger variants. This could help to explain why we have a nation with a fairly high vaccination rate, dealing with a strong variant.

If my choice to not get vaccinated, ends up with me dying from COVID-19, then that has been my choice. That should remain my choice. No one needs to protect me from myself. In all honesty, I am terrified of the vaccine. Just as many are terrified of COVID-19. We need to demand the adverse event statistics they are gathering and refusing to release. This is a continuing trial period, so you know they are tracking everything and have copious data. People are hesitant because calling it completely safe is irresponsible and untrue. The suppression of known risks is nothing less than malfeasance from our government and medical professionals. We won’t know the gravity of this experiment for 10 years or more.

As long as 480,000 Americans die from tobacco-related illnesses each year, and we still have tobacco products on the store shelves, you will never convince me that the government cares about my health. Which is fine by me. That’s freedom. This is about power and control that they never want to relinquish and it will take every single one of our voices to overcome that.

    My son attended a meeting of fully vaccinated, unmasked people. He is unvaccinated, but was wearing a mask and a face shield. He got Covid (and so did some of the attendees), and he gave it to me. We followed Dr. Zelenko’s protocol, and we had short, mild cases–no shortness of breath, and food still tastes delicious. I am 70 years old, and my son is 33. I was vaccinated with the J and J, but although my son got sicker, it took him only a week to test negative, whereas it took me 2 1/2 weeks. Now we both have lovely natural immunity and sense of relief.

    An attempt to bring down our entire world for the eugenics followers. Everyone taking part in this HOAX needs to be imprisoned.

  3. EL Cross   August 30, 2021 at 4:07 pm

    BRAVO! Well stated. This vaccine mandate is NOT about our “health”. It is about power and control (via the vaccine passport).

  4. Susan   August 30, 2021 at 4:12 pm

    Very well said. Couldn’t agree more.

  5. Jim   August 30, 2021 at 4:13 pm

    My GOD , that was the most succinct article I have ever read on this biologic masquerading as a vaccine. Bravo , this should be passed on and made viral but probable would be censored by the commie / media medical complex. Keep fighting the good fight !

  6. Scott Henderson   August 30, 2021 at 4:16 pm

    Excellent submission, very well articulated.
    Now….how do you get it to the masses?
    Oops, you can’t, just like all the other “excellent, and well articulated” submissions.
    Because we are censored. And when information like this does hit the main stream media, too many refuse to consider it as accurate information.
    I have heard that it is easier to fool a population than to convince them they have been fooled. I sincerely believe this statement.

    Thank you so much for this most excellent article. It knocks the discussion points right out of the ball park.

  10. Karen Youngberg   August 30, 2021 at 4:36 pm

    “Spot on” for all points addressed!
    I just sent a comment to Delta Airlines stating I would not fly Delta as long as they were blackmailing their employees into being vaccinated. We ALL need to let businesses know those of us who are not convinced of safety and efficacy of this vaccine will stand fast to our principles and reasons for not getting it…. Even if it means not being allowed to eat in a certain restaurant, go to a show or attend a specific event. If there is a decrease in business revenues certain businesses may think twice before company mandates are required.

  11. INGRID C DURDEN   August 30, 2021 at 4:55 pm

    Thank you. I could not have worded this better, this is exactly my opinion too. The friends and family members I discussed my resolution with, don’t understand why I don’t want to take the jabs. They barely protect ME. They do nothing for the others, they don’t stop the virus, on the contrary. They are not only useless, they are DANGEROUS. They make the virus more deadly. I read that in the EU there are 20 000+ deaths from the shots already. That has been kept totally quiet, even doctors in the EU are not allowed to tell this to their patients, and many don’t know that the makers have no liability, they only find out when something happens. I hold my heart for my family overseas. I live in rural place and don’t need to go out much, but they are in a crowded place.

  12. Mary Cline   August 30, 2021 at 5:01 pm

    Thank you for saying so well what I have thought about since this all started!!! I have many allergies, and my body has reacted very badly to both the flu and pneumonia vaccines. I had been required to take them back in the 80″s when I was a paramedic for a private ambulance service and was going in and out of many local nursing homes. Two years in a row after receiving those vaccines I was bedridden for a week and 10 days, respectively. I was more sick and physically rundown than if I had just had the flu or pneumonia!!! I work in healthcare so I am well aware of the risks of not getting vaccinated. Now I work in an Emergency Department and our main employer is threatening to charge us $600/year extra for our health insurance premium to any employees that continue to refuse vaccination!!! (Which may not be much for a physician or even some nurses, but I honestly don’t make that much compared to them and if they insist on doing this they should at least take into account our gross wages.)

    we the taxpayers pay for claims thru VAERS…….over $4Billion since congress relieved manufacturers of all responsibility……smh….
    ALL medical decisions / choices MUST be made between the patient and their health care provider! gov’t. officials – with NO medical knowledge or experience – must not be allowed to force ANY form of “health care” on any individual! one size does not fit all!

  15. Darla   August 30, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    I agree with this completely. I would be interested to see the amount of vaccinated folks that are also obese. Changes the dynamic and stats on the current “illness” situation. I am sick of being blamed for all of the worlds health woes just because I am not vaccinated.

    • JennyM   September 3, 2021 at 5:05 pm

      If the vaccine works, then why are they afraid? My DH got into a ‘discussion’ with a lunk head who believes everything the TV tells him. He couldn’t handle the fact that my DH said (as the lunk head was walking away because they couldn’t handle the facts of the matter), he said, “If the “vaccine” works, then why are you afraid of the unvaccinated?” The guy refused to even try to think. That’s the problem, nobody who is for this RNA shot is THINKING. At all! They’ve got their eyes wide shut. Ditto any remaining brain matter.

    Why isn’t anyone pointing to the scientific “Firestone real world” study in Israel between the Vaxxed and the unvaxxed? It is proving that the people who got the virus already have a robust immune system and are NOT the majority ending up in hospital with the variant.

    They’re trying to mandate it across the USA, and many health care professionals are refusing to get it. There are protests being organized all over West Virginia. Of course the MSM will barely cover them because it doesn’t support the narrative that the refuseniks are only “uneducated, ignorant, tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists”, not doctors and nurses and paramedics who are seeing the side effects from those duped into taking the shots.

    I hope this is the straw that breaks Fauci’s back, because this is TOO FAR!

    No choice? No freedom!

  19. Ponce Gazzoli   August 30, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    This is the truth, I myself had read and listen to so many professional and medical experts about this covid-19 so called vaccine. I strongly agree with everything you wrote.

    Well said. My mother and I always talk about why people are not questioning this vaccine and just going along with the program. Many seem to not care about the possible long-term side effects of these vaccines. I am also afraid of being forced to get this vaccine. I work in a hospital lab so I know it will not be long before it is mandated there. I really find that it is sick that people actually think it is okay to force people to get something they do not want. To threaten their jobs if they don’t want to take the shot. They say trust the science but science has been corrupted by special interests and science is an ever changing. Sometimes things that are thought to be true at a certain time end up being proven wrong later.

  26. MarkB   August 30, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Thank you for this article. It has clarified for me the language of my own hesitancy. As a 67 year old man in great health and only a few pounds overweight, I am much more concerned about dying from, or having an irreversible reaction to the vaccine, than suffering from the virus, and dealing with the possible outcomes of that.
    I would love to have significantly sound data to support my choosing – and yes, it has not been offered by the agencies that should be doing that, and does not yet seem to be forthcoming.

  27. AM   August 30, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    If these reports in the web site (see link below) don’t convince you that there are serious adverse reactions, then you are blind to the truth. You are those Jesus referred to in Matt 15:14 …”If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” We are suppose to take the “Fake News” media’s word for everything, but they are the blind! Let’s open ours! We are being lead down a path that is unproven that have long term and short term consequences.

  28. Dawn   August 31, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Perfectly said, hitting all the important points. Totally agree, this isn’t one iota about our health, the government couldn’t care less about any of us, it’s about their complete and utter control of us.

  29. Michelle   August 31, 2021 at 3:37 am

    Great article, I’m sharing this with my family.

  30. Denise Mclean   August 31, 2021 at 4:45 am

    This article written was Well Done. It takes courage to stand up for your beliefs and often criticism, It was well researched and totally spot on. Not that most readers didn’t know a lot of this, but some may not have and for those who didn’t, it was well summarized.

  31. Debbie Boggs   August 31, 2021 at 8:25 am

    Amen and Bravo! Excellent piece. Reinforces why we need to avoid this shot at all costs.

  32. tm   August 31, 2021 at 10:36 am

    Patient vaccine status is not even a data element being collected by the various insurers (to use to stratify against hospitalization / procedural diagnoses). The first two quarters of patient data for 2021 are not even being collected yet. Data lockout is later. Stroke data bases might be collecting it. Are the hospitals reporting to VAERS re hospitalization (PE DVT arterial blockage MI Stroke afib appendicitis etc) vs covid vax within 3mos? I doubt it.

  33. Sam   August 31, 2021 at 10:46 am

    it is interesting that the companies that make this stuff don’t mandate their employees to get it. I think it is because they know more about it than they are saying and want to keep their employees safe from its side effects.

    and yes, who will take care of the person who is maimed from this shot? or their family if they can no longer work? certainly not the government! they are too busy spending money on illegal immigrants coming into the country, or dare I say it, they are making such good kickback on the drug-pushing that they are doing ok! oh… drug pushers. aren’t they arrested and put in jail? they should be! ALL of them even the ‘legal’ ones. The FDA ‘ legal ones’ .

    Why can a pregnant woman say “MY BODY, MY CHOICE” ,,then have an abortion, we know a human died. But here they say i am putting someone at risk if i dont take the jab. There is no proof or science that says a unvaccinated person spreads Covid more than a vaccinated person, as a matter of fact , Isreal has the highest vaccinated rate of most countries ,yet over 50% of the serious hospitalization are people that have had both jabs. I have had more family members that were healthy took the vaccine and within 72 hours were dead. Yet the CDC, wants to say it was a stroke and not caused by the vax. I know at least 20 people that have died within 72 hours of the jab, but i only know 2 that has died from Covid. I know the risk of driving a car with seatbelts and airbags versus a motorcycle without a helmet, but i have that freedom to choose, they keep saying ,make the choice to take the jab, yet they are not giving people the choice, they are firing you from your job, limiting your dining and travel ,so its not a choice if they try to force you. The more they push, the more i stray away, makes me question their motives, after all they are already pushing boosters because each variant that comes, the less effective the vaccines are

  36. Nev   September 1, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    Thank you.
    It makes so much sense to me. It must be that my unreasonable fear of the facts of this experiment has made me delusional and unable to make a considered and informed decision NOT to be vaccinated!
    Went on a day fishing charter, (5 POB), Monday, some 50 or so km off the Queensland SE Coast and were still under the GOVT/Science Defined, Wear a COSMETIC value – NON Medical disclaimer attached, mask, to protect myself and others from this “FABLED” virus,,, OOOPS,, Maybe the 2 migrating whales or many passing sea birds would create this Never Ending Loop of infecting us & being infected by us, Remember, “The science is Settled on Animal to Human Origin & Transmission”. Oh MY Gosh! Reasonable Logic, NOT Irrational Fear DEMANDS that I RUSH out & be PCR at a GUARANTEED Positive Test Result Cycling Rate of 45,,, And so it, FEAR, escalates.

    I couldn’t agree more. I was just denied my exception request and I responded with the same questions about liability/accountability. Not to mention OSHA took back adverse reactions as a result of a mandatory employer covid vaccine is no longer a reportable offense. I’ve also done my own research and I’m more concerned about getting the vaccine vs COVID. I’ve had known exposures; even quarantined with my dad who has AZ so he would stay in isolation at his assisted living and I never got Covid. This vaccine is not a one size fits all and as a nurse it is a devastating realization that I’m about to lose my livelihood and a career that I love over it. It’s a hopeless feeling.
