Why I’m Not Getting The Vaccine

First let me say the obligatory, “I not an anti vaxxer.”  While my faith in government and public health authorities has been utterly destroyed this past year due to their collective horrible pandemic response, I believe vaccines as a whole have brought us miraculous benefits.  I also think, at this point, the people who are vulnerable to a bad case of Covid should get the vaccine and that those of us who are not should not feel pressured to do so.

So What’s My Beef With These New Vaccines?

1.  Based on my age, health and lifestyle, my chances of suffering a severe bout of Covid, let alone death are very small. Injecting experimental drugs in to my body to combat a virus I stand a 99.98% of surviving doesn’t just seem absurd, it is.

2.  Not one of the vaccines are FDA approved.  They have Emergency Use Approval (EUA), but FDA approval requires studies on long term effects, which of course these newly hatched vaccines do not have .  Anyone taking the jab now is essentially a clinical trial participant on long term effects.

3.  Along those same lines, mRNA vaccines are new to the market.  Yes, the technology behind them has been around for awhile, but they’ve never before been used in humans. Call me crazy, but I’d rather be an observer in this grand experiment then a guinea pig.

4.  As with all vaccines, there are potential side effects, some of them very unpleasant like death or the AstraZeneca blood clot fiasco, which caused several European countries to pause those vaccinations. While I understand serious complications are rare, I’ve heard enough, “He/she died within days of getting the vaccine, but we can’t be sure it’s because of this…”  stories to take note.

On a personal note, a good friend of mine went in to atrial fibrillation (AFib) after getting the 2nd Pfeizer shot and had to have an emergency procedure done to get her heart rhythm normal again.  Her primary care physician said she can’t recommend the vaccines after a perfectly healthy patient died after getting it and another, a marathon runner, ended up in the ER with heart damage.

Something called Antibody Dependent Enhancement Syndrome (ADE) is also a concern.  This involves your immune response going whacko where instead of fighting the infection, it opens the door for pathogens to invade your cells making you extremely sick.  The potential for  severe allergic reactions to polyethylene glycol (PEG), which is the packaging surrounding the messenger RNA cannot be overlooked either.

There is also the truly alarming prospect that mass vaccination during an active pandemic will cause stronger, more deadly virus mutations much the same way bacteria learns how to overcome over prescribed antibiotics.  Is this likely?  I don’t know but I’ve heard more than a few scientists express this concern.

Just the fact that many scientists and doctors around the world have strong concerns about these vaccines makes me think we should stop rushing this process.

5.  I’m not supposed to say this but, mRNA vaccines are a form of gene therapy and I’m just not very keen on messing with the ones I was born with.  mRNA stands for messenger ribonucleic acid which basically instructs cells in the body to make proteins to prevent or fight disease. Both the Pfeizer and Moderna vaccines use mRNA to program a person’s cells to produce many copies of a fragment of the virus. The fragment then stimulates the immune system to attack if the real virus tries to invade the body, which all sounds pretty gene therapyish to me.

When the American Society of Gene + Cell Therapy  tells us in regards to the vaccines  that gene therapy is a viable strategy for developing vaccines to combat COVID-19, perhaps we should take them seriously that it is indeed gene therapy.

6.  While most Covid cases do not require hospitalization, there are therapeutics available to tamp things down before this becomes necessary, which I would rather take my chances with.  Over the counter supplements include zinc, quercetin, high dose vitamins D3 and C ( I take all of these prophylactically) have been shown to be helpful for immune support.

And many doctors have had success with prescription drugs like Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine with Zinc and Azythromycin.  I’ll leave it up to you to do your own research on these things and discuss them with your doctor, but please know testing positive for Covid is rarely an automatic one way trip to the hospital.

Government Incompetence

I find great tragedy in the fact that the government went all in for vaccines while putting little resources towards effective therapeutics which could have saved countless lives.  A strong focus on good health through weight loss, diet, nutrition and exercise would also have done wonders.  Certainly better than shutting down gyms and parklands around the country while forcing us to stay home, where overeating and drinking became common.

Plus Corruption

Did you know an Emergency Use Authorization becomes invalid if other effective treatments are available?  I didn’t until recently and it sure makes me wonder about how the billions of dollars flowing through the Covid vaccine industry would have come to a halt had a successful drug been found. Certainly it would be difficult not be incentivized towards keeping the money spigot open over pursuing vaccine alternative therapies.

Plus Manipulation

I also find the vaccine narrative as being the responsible thing to do grating.  As with the other empty Corona phrases like stay home/stay safe, my mask protects you and your protects me, we’re all in this together, etc…it’s designed to be divisive by creating moral superiority in those who choose to vaccinate and shame in those who don’t.

It’s classic government psychological operations , where in partnership with the media select information is dispensed to manipulate feelings and induce certain behaviors. Information that runs counter to the narrative will be blocked, mocked and dismissed as crazy talk.

Equals Zero Trust

That’s been the standard operating procedure this entire Covidian year, where the unholy alliance of government, media, Big Tech and Big Pharma trashed civil liberties around the world and caused much suffering.  Now this same alliance is herding us towards mass vaccination by dangling the prospect of normal life in front of us.  If we just line up like good sheep and take our shot a passport to freedom will be granted.

There is nothing normal about any of this and thus I will respectfully decline the vaccine.

      • The second one is schedule on Saturday before Easter—we have a wedding in Atlanta Friday, race back home that night, go early for the shot, then get ready to have the whole family for Easter—will I get deathly ill again?? I pray not—but if the second is anything like the first, it will be a miserable Easter.
        I’ve tried to see if I could reschedule but it seems that isn’t too much of an option.
        But I do have a friend who also had Covid when I did…her first shot was like mine…death.
        Then her second was not as bad.
        I have heard the opposite for others but they had not had Covid…so we shall see.
        I will tell you that I was adamant about NOT getting it—but Gregory got nervous.
        He’s 10 years older than I am and I think all of his friends having gotten theirs and knowing some healthy guys dying from Covid scared him.
        We got “vaccine shamed”
        I have a dear friend who is a doctor and told me DO NOT—but my own doctor was a big fat yes.
        Having had Covid serves us well—but then we went and got the shot and introduced scariness into our bodies.
        I have been so mad at myself for compromising my principles but like Kathy said after getting both of hers….”well, if I die, I’ll be with God and out of this crazy mess”
        so either way…God’s got this…despite me maybe screwing up.

          Well, I certainly hope you don’t get ill again Julie. Both of you guys have had Covid though so it still puzzles me why your doctor would recommend getting the vaccine? There is no reason to think it will provide better protection than the real infection you had. It’s not about the antibodies, but the T cells which a natural infection triggers.

          Don’t be too hard on yourself as the entire world seems focused on herding us in to getting the vaccine and it can be hard to resist, especially if you have friends and family pushing you to. I’ll be praying for you girl, I’m sure things will be fine.

  6. Trish, I’m taking the same prophylactic supplements as you, except for one extra: Elderberry gummies (2/day). I haven’t even had a normal cold in the 10 months I’ve been taking all of them.
    That’s nothing to sneeze at.

    I wish it was easy to get a doctor’s prescription for ivermectin, because I’d be taking that too. I agree that the government should have invested in heavy production and distribution (OTC) of ivermectin (based on its proven safety). Tens of thousands of lives, maybe hundreds of thousands, would have been saved.

      Unfortunately many in government and public policy seem intent on treating us all as if we share the same risk factors as you (even children!) and are amping up pressure to mass vaccinate everyone. I think this will turn out to be a disastrous mistake.

      It’s worse than that, Big Pharma has made that conditional. They won’t sell the vaccine anywhere that the government doesn’t grant them immunity from prosecution or being sued. If it’s so safe and so necessary to save lives, why the conditions? When the polio vaccine came out, Jonas Salk renounced any rights to it so that everyone could have access to it. You’d think that if COVID really was such a deadly killer, Big Pharma would be handing out the ‘cure’ to anyone who asked for it.

    As with all your posts, Tricia, this one is well thought out, well written and fact based.

    We have both had our shot, as we are vulnerable by age. Neither of us had any reaction to either shot. I last had the flu in 1975. Since then I have had the flu shot every year. Have not gotten the flu or even a cold, since. I figured if I have been successfully rolling the dice all these years, I might as keep the dice hot. I believe the stories about people dying after the shot must have something to do with allergies. Things like that happen to some people just getting standard medical care, but the odds are probably similar to the 99.98% you mentioned.

    As for the government involvement, as always, whenever a national crisis occurs politicians see it as a chance for more power grab. Except, in this case, it seems to have happened more on the state level than nationally. Biden and Pelosi are too busy grabbing power on all other levels to be too concerned with Covid right now. We have never been closer to circling the drain of Socialism.

      Well thanks Al, I always appreciate your comments and support. I definitely think it makes sense for some people to get the vaccine and I wouldn’t try and argue anyone out of it. Even with that second nose problem! 😉

      All vaccines pose some risks, especially the mRNA ones which are entirely new to the market and of which we have no long term data for. I just want an honest representation of the side effects and how many have suffered from them which I can tell you right now we are not getting from the govt and media. For them to pressure everyone to get it, or God forbid mandate it I think is madness. Now they are talking about vaccinating kids as young as 2…..

    Great post and well-reasoned, Tricia. I’m not against vaccines either, and won’t tell people not to take one. If that will get them out of their bunker and rejoin society, I say go for it! 🙂

    I got COVID last October. I was pretty sick for a few days, but it wasn’t near as bad as other sicknesses I’ve had, including the flu. It certainly wasn’t worse than the Russian Flu (H1N1) I got in 1977, which almost killed me. There was no vaccine for that and no lockdowns. I didn’t realize it at the time, but one of the reasons COVID wasn’t as bad for me was because I take a regular vitamin supplement that includes healthy doses of D3, C, Zinc, and Selenium, all of which have been found to mitigate against COVID.

    Btw, my wife got the Swine Flu (H1N1) in 2009, was sick in bed for a week, but I never got it. And she didn’t get COVID from me last year. No social distancing because I didn’t even know I had COVID until I gave blood! I give blood every 90 days and my blood always tests positive for COVID antibodies (since last October. So, I’ll pass on the vaccine myself. I’ve never taken a flu vaccine either, btw.

      There is 0 reason for anyone that’s had Covid to get the vaccine. In fact I’ve read in several places you could have a much rougher time with it than those that haven’t been exposed to the virus. As with everything Covid, “experts” not believing a natural infection provides strong (and probably better) immunity is flipping 100 years of virus knowledge on its head.

    I am not in favor of forcing people to do things they don’t want to do. So, when Tricia says she doesn’t want to get vaccinated for COVID-19, I just shrug my shoulders and consider the logic of her decision. Does it make sense? I think so. Undoubtedly, others will be horrified. Tricia is not obeying the advice of Dr. Fauci! Burn the evil witch!

    Did I get one of the COVID-19 vaccines? Yes. I got the moderna vaccine, and I will be taking the second shot. Not happy about the risks involved, but I am a relatively old guy, and I don’t want to take the chance of passing COVID-19 to my lady. That said, I don’t see much point in my children and grandchildren in getting vaccinated, but my children are old enough to make their own decisions.

    Does everyone make good decisions? No, but there is no one wise enough we can trust except our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus to make decisions for everyone. For the time being, it appears Jesus doesn’t want the job. That is probably because most of us are so ridiculously critical.

  20. I have taken two shots of Pizer with minimal effects.

    Being 80 years old and told by a long-time family doctor that if I get Covid I will be toast, the decision was easy. I had a simple chance incentive to choose to take the shot or risk becoming toasted.

    My son and daughter families both become infected and only had mild flue like symptoms.
    In my opinion, everyone should make their own choices. If they do not have hospitalization insurance, and relatively healthy and contract the virus, so be it.

    Problem in our socialized medicine, anyone who contracts the virus and does not have insurance will be accepted in emergency hospitals and the costs paid for by government taxpayers.
    And if they decide not to take the shots, and then get the covid, there is no monetary incentives for them to discern that if they do become infected, they have to pay.

    What is probably needed is for government to give the choice to people whether they want it the shot or not. And if they refuse and get it, they have to pay the costs instead of taxpayers.

    By doing so, it provides a monetary incentive which most people now do not have in our socialized humanitarian laws of governing where anyone who walks into a hospital emergency room must by law be admitted regardless if they can pay or not.

      • Tricia, Tom,

        Thanks for your comment,

        The Idea is not mine. It is presently used by many Physicians to prevent them from malpractice lawsuits. I found out about it when my daughter refused a doctor’s advice for a flu shot for my grandson with an asthma condition. They insisted she sign a form to prove she refused their advice.

        Most people have no idea the portion of their medical bills is a result of the high insurance they must pay. Physicians have no choice but to insure them from lawsuits from patients who do not follow their advice and later get sick because they did not take the advice offered to them.

        Many then sue the doctors when they later see a lawyer who: “invests” in their suit by processing a suit free knowing he will get a third or more of the settlement paid by the insurers.

        Since most lawyers are Democrats, that is why the Democrat Party would not agree to the Republicans trying to pass laws to prohibit employees from being sued by employees when they accuse the employers for making them work with other people.

        Only in America.

        In my opinion, for some reason, we will never hear this explanation being reported by a major news source for some reason. Possibly because if more people understand, there will be a mass number of suits by people who contracted Coronavirus and were ater laid off because the government shut them down.
        Lawyers don’t advertise because they prefer this not be too well advertised and wind up getting the legislation proposed by the Republicans passed because the present Civil Court backlogs will take more than the present seven years to come to trial.

        As Tom stated, the vaccines were approved as an emergency measure, so I believe it absolve the US government and vaccine suppliers from the suits, but not the lawyers against physicians and their insurers.

        Sad. Only in America.

        Regards and goodwill blogging.

        PS After my grandson caught the flu that same year, my daughter now makes certain he gets the annual flue shots which both myself and her physician tried to advise her.

        Even my doctor complains about his son in law who is a car mechanic and will not allow his grandchildren to obtain the flue shot in spite of his medical training and advice because of his asthma..

    Tricia, from my reading of the available data you seriously underestimate the health risks involved in going through a Covid-19 infection.

    In your first point, you do not quantify what you consider “very small”. I could not find clear statistics of the sort “if you get infected, your chances of requiring hospitalization are xyz.” However, from my reading available data I estimate the chance to require hospitalization at 5% to 15%, when infected in the age bracket 50 to 65. That is not something I would call very small. Survival rate when infected seems to be about 99.8% at age 50 and about 99.0% at age 65, that’s chances between 1 in 500 and 1 in 100 not making it. Mind you, survival does mean just that, survival. It does not mean that you go back to your previous health status.

    These are the numbers to the best of my knowledge and already the fatality chances differ from your 99.98% estimate by a factor of 10 to 50. It is up to you, whether you still consider the risks entailing an infection lower than the risks of a vaccination.

    As an aside, the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines are not a gene therapy, they do not change your genome. Both of them and the AstraSeneca vaccine by now have received the normal approval by the European Medicines Agency. Over here, only the timeline of approval was streamlined for fast approval, but not the requirements for approval. The blood clot risk of AstraSeneca is about one in 200,000 vaccinations and a tested and established drug suitable for treatment (not prevention) has been identified.

    I will take the shot as soon as I have a chance to get it, be it Moderna, BioNTech or AstraSeneca.

    I absolutely agree. If you are part of the population vulnerable to COVID-19, then get the vaccine. If you are not, you have nothing to gain, nor does anyone else, from your getting the vaccine. Contrary to popular belief, there is no evidence that the vaccine prevents transmission. It is what philosophers call a “self-regarding” action rather than an “other-regarding” action. The benefit or injury is restricted to the individual who decides to get the vaccine. The decision affects no one but that person, hence people should not be pressured to undergo this invasive medical procedure. What happened to the “right-to-chose” movement?

      I so agree M.G., what you say is spot in! There is also the difference between relative risk which is what the vaccine studies measured and absolute risk which is what they should have been judged by and which shows much lower efficacy rates.

      But on we go with this vast experiment in mass vaccination with much of the information needed to truly make an informed consent decision censored from the general public.

      Thanks for coming by!
