In the latest COVID related news, we not only have OSHA finally relenting and pulling back the mandate on businesses, in schools across the nation, young children are rolling up their sleeves following the example of Sesame Street’s Big Bird to get the vaccines.
Many still wonder about the COVID vaccines. Are they safe and effective as we’ve been told? What are the risks for children? What about expectant women or women who one day want to have children?
Returning to Crosstalk to discuss these questions was Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet. Dr. Vliet is the president and CEO of Truth for Health Foundation, a non-profit public charity. Since February 2020, she’s been part of the team of frontline physicians treating COVID early at home. With Dr. Peter McCullough, she is a co-author/editor of the Guide to COVID Early Treatment: Options to Stay Out of Hospital and Save Your Life. Dr. Vliet is a 2014 Ellis Island Medal of Honor recipient for her national and international educational efforts in health, wellness, and endocrine aging in men and women. She is a past director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She received her M.D. degree and internship in Internal Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School and completed special training at Johns Hopkins. She spoke on this edition of Crosstalk as an independent physician, not as a spokesperson for any healthcare system, pharmaceutical company, insurance plans or political party. She is a patient advocate.
Jim opened the discussion by noting that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently claimed in a Tucker Carlson interview that the COVID-19 vaccines are deadlier than all vaccines combined over the past 30 years.
Dr. Vliet wasted no time in stating that he totally agrees from looking at the data from VAERS, the CDC’s own tracking system. It shows that if you look at all adverse events and deaths from all vaccines, we’ve dramatically exceeded all of that with the COVID vaccines in the first 6 months compared to 31 years with all others.
As the nationwide push to get people vaccinated continues, children ages 5 and up are now included. Are children really at risk if they fail to get vaccinated? She believes they are not at risk of hospitalization or death from COVID if they are healthy. If they have an underlying medical condition such as morbid obesity, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, other lung disease, etc., those children (high risk children) do better with early treatment and such options are available for them.
According to Dr. Vliet, the normal vaccine development process would take from 2-5 years, perhaps 7, with careful monitoring of adverse effects during that time before being offered for use by the public. She noted that we only had 2 months of clinical trial information before the different manufacturers rolled out the shots worldwide, while at the same time the tracking of adverse effects “fell off a cliff.”
She put this in perspective when she communicated that the Swine Flu vaccine program was shut down after only 25 deaths. Now we’re over 18,000 due to the COVID shots.
Concerning future fertility and reproduction, she cited research going back 10 years showing that the lipid nanoparticle coatings used in the mRNA vaccines were damaging to the ovaries and testicles/sperm.
Dr. Vliet had more to say on these points and callers were given an opportunity to contribute as well.
