How Vaccine Messaging Confused the Public

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

If politicians and health bureaucrats had been honest with the public, setting out the criteria the Covid-19 vaccines were trialed against, and what could and could not be expected of the vaccines, then this widespread misunderstanding need not have occurred. Instead, their lack of honesty is likely to damage future vaccination efforts and harm public health.

How the Flu and Covid Shots Are Different

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Someone may argue that society at large— not necessarily the people taking the 4th dose— is still facing an emergency, but that argument is specious. There is no evidence that giving a young healthy person a 4th dose benefits larger pandemic dynamics, and saves an older person. Doctors need to stop making up just-so-stories in their minds to justify coercive mandates on the young, healthy, and those with natural immunity.

New Hampshire Votes for Pharmaceutical Freedom

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

This battle is much larger than the legal status of Ivermectin. That’s just one symbol. What’s really at stake here is the idea of medical freedom itself. And freedom is a precondition for scientific inquiry and the search for the truth. It is also essential for public health. This is one of many lessons of the disastrously botched pandemic.

No College Mandates

End All College Covid-19 Vaccination Mandates

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

To mandate a medical intervention is to violate the fundamental right to medical choice. Therefore, the decision to mandate must be based on nothing less than incontrovertible medical necessity. In the case of Covid-19 college vaccine mandates, that standard cannot be met based on current science and real-life experience.

The Military’s Abusive Imposition of Mandatory Covid Vaccinations

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Military leaders must insist upon the truth, abide by principles guaranteeing human rights, and ask appropriate questions regarding the welfare of members of the armed forces. How could any commander not do so? To state “I am just following DOD or CDC guidance,” is no excuse. This behavior is not the mark of leaders of character, who are entrusted to lead the men and women of the armed services.

Vaccine Fanaticism Fuels Vaccine Skepticism

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The federal government went further, using its vast regulatory powers to mandate vaccines as a condition of employment. These coercive actions effectively cast the unvaccinated into second-class citizenship. As they watched the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike contract COVID-19, they undoubtedly began to wonder whether public health truly had their best interests at heart.

Freedom Is Our Birthright

Freedom Is Our Birthright, Not Dependent On Medical Status

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

On occasion the majority may need to swallow a risk for a time. Sometimes respecting the freedom of others will seem to cost us, but codifying human rights, and insisting on process, legalism, and law gives wisdom time to overcome fear. It is the insurance that keeps the members of a free society free.

Drs. Walensky and Offit: It’s All in Good Fun

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Did you ever think of the cruelty bordering on sadism of forcing millions of people who, thanks to natural immunity posed no infectious threat to anyone, were having to choose between taking a medication that can do them little good and might do them considerable harm, and losing their livelihood?

Why Did Politicians Choose Economic Contraction Over Virus Mitigation?

Why Did Politicians Choose Economic Contraction Over Virus Mitigation?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Poverty has always been mankind’s most brutal killer, while prosperity that’s produced the resources necessary for cures has been death’s greatest foe. Politicians chose economic contraction as a virus-mitigation strategy. Historians will marvel…

Should I Vaccinate My Child Against Covid?

Should I Vaccinate My Child Against Covid?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The Covid vaccine has been widely used for children without solid information about its efficacy on hospitalizations and deaths, and without the ability to conduct a proper benefit-risk evaluation. The recent observational study from New York State adds a few important pieces to the puzzle, but we still do not know whether the benefits outweigh the risks.
