Medical Science: COVID-19 - Shall We Rush to Get the Biden Jab

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

If you are not already in the half of Americans who are fully vaccinated, President Biden’s speech on mandates gives the vaccination decision a new urgency as the vaccination campaign gives way to direct orders.

The timing, just prior to the 20th anniversary of 9/11—and just after our chaotic exit from Afghanistan—is interesting. As Biden said, “this is not about freedom or personal choice.” Many of our freedoms were already crushed under the rubble of the World Trade Center. Will the rest be lost in the war against a virus?

Twenty Years: 9/11 Attacks – A Date That Will Live in Infamy*

Trust is the key issue—trust in our government and in the established public health and medical authorities. If you don’t like Biden, you can think of the jab as the Trump vaccine. Physicians feel threatened with loss of their livelihood if they disseminate “misinformation” about COVID-19, so they may rely solely on Anthony Fauci, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, and The message is “get vaccinated.” Or else—get fired, or possibly even be denied medical treatment.

For other official views, you need to look outside the U.S. The Tokyo Medical Association recommends ivermectin for early treatment—with results in the graph. The U.S.FDA launched a Twitter campaign against this long-approved drug, which has both human and veterinary indications.

What can Americans do if they do not wish to take the vaccine?

·         Medical and religious exemptions are supposed to be available.

·         One might try asking for a postponement pending availability of the only FDA-approved product, Comirnaty, made by BioNTech in Mainz, Germany. The Pfizer product, contrary to media reports, got only an extended Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). One might also ask to delay pending completion of FDA-required post-marketing studies on issues such as myocarditis, with a 5-year follow-up (ending in 2027).

·         One might ask the employer about providing pre- and post-vaccination studies pertaining to the FDA warning about myocarditis (cardiac enzymes, ultrasound, MRI), plus guaranteed payment for treatment if it occurs, including paid time off if exercise restriction is needed.

·         One might ask for pre- and post-vaccination coagulation studies such as D-dimers, with payment for anti-clotting treatment if needed.

·         One probably needs to be prepared for termination and explore what legal remedies might be available to obtain unemployment compensation or severance pay.

Medical Science: There’s More to Death Than Covid-19

        Whether vaccinated or not, all Americans should check their disaster plans (life insurance, disability insurance) and inform themselves about prevention and early treatment options.
