Hard on the heels of the FDA granting emergency approval of the experimental Moderna coronavirus vaccine comes the news that the agency is investigating allergic reactions to the Pfizer vaccine experienced by people in multiple states who have been among the very first to take the jab.
Adverse Drug Reactions
Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Illinois, a hospital some 40 miles from Chicago, has temporarily suspended the administration of the vaccine to its health care employees and frontline workers. Four of them experienced adverse reactions – or what the media has termed “responses” – to the vaccine. The ADRs (Adverse Drug Reactions) to the experimental Pfizer vaccines included a tingling sensation and elevated heart rates.
In Alaska, a health care worker experienced anaphylaxis within 15 minutes of being administered the Pfizer vaccine. When an antihistamine did nothing to reduce her symptoms, she was moved to an intensive care unit and kept overnight, where she suffered severe, life-threatening adverse drug reactions to the vaccine. Twice during the night, the symptoms recurred, and the patient was put on an I.V. drip and given a medication named epinephrine for intense allergy reactions. Anaphylaxis is a known reaction to the COVID vaccine. Several people who were administered the jab in the United Kingdom experienced the same dangerous reaction.
A second Alaskan health care worker who also experienced an allergic reaction to the experimental vaccine was also given epinephrine but did not appear to suffer anaphylaxis. His symptoms included feeling light-headed, having puffy eyes, and experiencing an “itchy throat.” He was sent home after an hour. The time allotted by health care professionals for the observation of possible adverse drug reactions to the vaccine is between 15 and 30 minutes. So, any ADRs that occur outside that truncated timeline leaves patients to fend for themselves.
This week a doctor named Taylor Marshall posted a widely-shared video on Twitter showing a nurse in Chattanooga, Tennessee, who just received the experimental vaccine passing out in front of television cameras and collapsing to the floor. She had appeared suddenly disoriented, rubbed her temple, and said, “I’m sorry, I’m feeling really dizzy, I’m sorry” before wandering away from the microphone where she was caught, mid-fall by her coworkers. Some media outlets spun the story by asserting she was “prone to fainting.”
The FDA is “investigating” reactions to an experimental vaccine developed in six months when the previous warp speed winner was the mumps vaccine developed in four years. Most vaccines typically take between eight and ten years to develop. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have undergone a mere two months of safety trials and zero long-term safety trials.
Yet the FDA revoked the emergency use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), the astonishing efficacy of which was again ratified this week when yet another peer-reviewed study was published in a prestigious medical journal. That study showed an 84% reduction of hospitalization and death with its early use against COVID in tandem with zinc and azithromycin.
This is the same FDA that got “YES” votes from two of its members, Dr. Paul Offit and Dr. Peter Hotez, who earlier this year experienced rare moments of serious and uncharacteristic concern over the safety and adverse reactions of the warp speed vaccines still in development at that time. Both of these men voted to approve the vaccines anyway. Maybe they both subscribe to Dr. Offit’s assertion that even infants could theoretically have no problem being administered 10,000 vaccines at once.
These are but two of the gentlemen who make up a coterie of health care superstars making decisions about your health and what you should be strongly urged – or compelled – to inject into your body.
If you fancy yourself a risk-taker at the razor’s edge of medical innovation, then getting this vaccine is for you. If, however, you have thus far avoided signing up for a worldwide medical experiment with adverse reactions and unknown outcomes, then it might behoove you to take advice from the salad days of the leftist revolution against Bad Orange and “RESIST.”
Failing that, might I suggest a lab rat ornament for your Christmas tree this year?
