How Safe and Effective Are Covid-19 Vaccines?

There is a probability that corrupt politicians are working hand in glove with global drug cartels and together they may be behind the spread and perpetuity of the infection.

As mystery continues to shroud the effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccination projects, it is difficult to know if more people are dying with infection or with vaccination. Since a number of cases came up during the past one month or so where people got infected after receiving the vaccine, the debate has shifted from vaccine distribution to vaccine safety.

A leading doctor has warned that the current vaccination drive can have disastrous consequences for people around the world. In an open letter to WHO, Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche says that by vaccinating everyone with a vaccine that does not prevent transmission, we are destroying people’s immune systems, and setting the stage for a global health disaster. He says that these vaccines must not be used in the heat of a pandemic on millions of millions of people. [ Click here to watch the video interview. ]

“Mass infection prevention and mass vaccination with leaky Covid-19 vaccines in the midst of the pandemic can only breed highly infectious variants,” Dr. Bossche said. He has repeated his call for a public scientific debate with the WHO, qualified experts, and authorities worldwide over mass vaccinations campaigns. 

Governments too are worried, as they are clueless about the effect of vaccines on Covid-19 and its variants. In March, Members of the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee of the European Parliament debated with experts over the efficacy of vaccines against mutations of the Covid-19 virus. Members quizzed experts on the authorisation process for updated vaccines, on the role of vaccination certificates, and on the safety and side effects of existing vaccines.

As Covid has become the biggest conundrum for health experts, they are not able to provide the right information about the extent of infection and the calamity it is causing. People in different parts of the world have to rely on the random statements issued by politicians and WHO bureaucrats, most of whom are pathological liars. 

As governments have been releasing understated or misleading data about coronavirus and vaccines, they have failed to convince citizens about the severity of infection and the efficacy of vaccines. Politicians are announcing and lifting lockdowns without publicly sharing the data behind their decisions. Similarly, they are starting and stopping vaccination drives arbitrarily.

For example, health officials in Canada have decided to suspend administration of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine to younger people over concerns of blood clots in some cases. Provincial health authorities, including those in Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and Alberta, halted the AstraZeneca shots after the nation’s vaccine advisory committee recommended a pause on administering it to people under 55 years old.

Since governments are pumping in trillions of dollars into the Covid management projects which lack transparency, there is a probability that corrupt politicians are working hand in glove with global drug cartels and together they may be behind the spread and perpetuity of the infection.

As WHO is also not sure about the effectiveness or the harms of Covid-19 vaccines, it has launched a vaccine injury compensation programme. It is a programme for the 92 low- and middle-income countries and economies eligible for support via the Gavi COVAX Advance Market Commitment (AMC) of the COVAX Facility. According to WHO, the programme will offer eligible individuals in AMC-eligible countries and economies a transparent process to receive compensation. 

While there are multiple reports of side effects, here are some recent cases in which  people caught Covid infection even after the vaccination, lending credence to the fact that some serious frauds are happening in the vaccine production and administration projects.

All these cases indicate that the Covid-19 vaccines have been released in haste and are in an experimental stage. Governments in different parts of the world are deliberately hiding the effects of vaccines on consumers who are being enticed to take the vaccines without making the data about them public.
