As of December 22nd, 74% of the U.S. has been vaccinated.

Finding reasons to be vaccinated is easy, especially if you watch CNN or other mainstream media sources. Finding reasons not to be vaccinated requires a little more effort, but that does not mean the reasons are any less valid. I have several reasons I want to briefly outline below. 

We are finding, and this should not be a surprise to anyone, natural immunity (those who have had COVID and recovered) is superior to the protection offered by the vaccines. Since I have had Covid this is something I have looked at. 

One study out of Israel in December detailed those who have recovered within six months had a 10.5% infection rate compared to 69.2% of those who had been vaccinated.1

Natural immunity after infection is critical, and some would say it is necessary for human evolution. Adaptation for viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens is essential, or extinction occurs. Covid is changing and adapting hence the Delta and Omicron variants. 

Another even more recent study out of Denmark (thanks for pointing this one out Stephanie) shows the superior protection of natural immunity vs. vaccinations. 

Denmark’s population is 77.7% fully vaccinated, and if you include the partially vaccinated, it is 82%. Their numbers published December 21st show that the unvaccinated have an infection rate of 8.5%, but the fully vaccinated have an infection rate of 89.7%. In other words, everyone who has contracted Omicron 89.7% of them are among the vaccinated, and 8.5% are unvaccinated. 

This is not what our media reports. According to President Biden, “It’s [Omicron] here now and it’s spreading and it’s going to increase. For unvaccinated, we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death for unvaccinated, for themselves, their families and the hospital they’ll soon overwhelm.”2 I would suggest watching the whole news brief on Fox News (December 20th) which is less than 12 minutes long.

Another reason I have decided not to get vaccinated is pharmaceutical companies’ track record, and I will just look at one. 

Johnson & Johnson has been around since the 1880s and has grown into one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies worldwide. They operate in over 60 countries and have more than 130,000 workers, and in 2020 they had revenues topping 82 billion. 

  • In 1995 they were fined 7.5 million for shredding documents because of a federal investigation.
  • In 1996 they had to pay an undisclosed amount due to false claims about the failure rate of their condoms.
  • In 2001 they were fined 860 million for misleading customers about the longevity of disposable contact lenses.
  • In 2004 they were fined 90 million for a drug that was linked to heart problems that resulted in roughly 300 deaths.
  • In 2010 their subsidiaries were fined 81 million for illegal promotion of the epilepsy drug Topamax for psychiatric use.
  • In 2013 they were fined over 2.2 billion for uses of the drug Risperdal that was not FDA approved. The Department of Justice called it one of the largest health care frauds in U.S. History.
  • In 2016 J&J had to pay 2.1 billion o several women that developed ovarian cancer from Johnson’s Baby Powder which contained asbestos.3

As of 2021, they have over 27,000 lawsuits for talcum powder, but they continue to sell it in many European and third-world countries.3

The track record of these large pharmaceutical companies is not pretty. The dollar is almighty, even over the lives that could be lost. 

Finally, on this point, pharmaceutical companies have a get-out-of-jail-free card. U.S. code 300aa-22 states pharmaceutical companies are not liable in any civil action for vaccine-related injury or deaths. “…companies that manufacture vaccines are not liable if someone has an allergic reaction or injury after being vaccinated.”4

Fifty years ago, our country viewed vaccines as a national security issue. Biological warfare was a threat back then and is even more so now. The problem was vaccines produced in the U.S. were liable to the companies that manufactured them. Lawsuits were jeopardizing the hope of any profit by the pharmaceutical companies, and they threatened to stop any research for vaccines. Research takes time, human resources, and lots of money; without the hope of any significant profit there was little reason to continue the research. So our government created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The inherent problem with this program is it is run by the government who has conflicting interests. They want to protect the pharmaceuticals doing the research, but they also want to provide compensation for those seriously injured. And it is our government who provides the attornies and who decides the legitimacy of any claim of injury. 

Top of the list of vaccines not covered by the NVICP? You guessed it, COVID-19 Vaccines.5 Pharmaceuticals exert huge influence over the FDA, WHO, and CDC. In fact roughly 42% of the CDC budget is used to purchase vaccines. If that is not a conflict of interest, I don’t know what is. The vaccine approval process is fraught with conflicts that raise multiple red flags.6 

I never imagined I would agree with Bernie Sanders, but a few days ago he expressed concerns about Biden’s pick for heading the FDA. Dr. Robert Califf has millions invested in pharmaceutical corporations. Sanders wrote concerning Dr. Robert Califf, “One of the major reasons the pharmaceutical industry, among many others, is so powerful is its close relationship with the FDA and other regulators in Washington”.7 Sanders announced he would oppose Califf, citing his multimillion-dollar ties to Big Pharma.

Cardinal Raymond Burke wrote, “It must be clear that it is never morally justified to develop a vaccine through the use of the cell lines of aborted fetuses.”8 

From what I have researched, all the vaccines are connected to abortion. If you are on the fence concerning the abortion issue, consider some of my past blog posts that shed some light on the subject. Sotomayor’s Sacred Words, Do You Really Believe Abortion Is Wrong, A Parasitic Relationship, You too can gather and bless a late-term abortion clinic, and What about rape and incest?.

Some may argue the abortions happened so long ago it is irrelevant. For example, Johnson and Johnson use PER.C6, a fetal cell line from an aborted boy in 1985. And the Pfizer vaccine is tested using HEK 293 from an aborted boy in the 1970s. They may reason we might as well profit from what took place, especially if that one life helps save countless others. The problem with that reasoning is abortion is still taking place, and pharmaceuticals are still profiting. Where would we draw that line? From an abortion fifty years ago? Twenty years ago? One year ago? Last week? Should there be a statute of limitation on taking innocent life and then profiting from her? Profiting from aborted children was the game changer for me. 

Opting out of the vaccine is not “anti-science,” as the media claims. Many in the medical field have expressed concerns with the fast track of the COVID vaccines for various reasons. This despite getting smeared by news outlets and mainstream media. Shaming those who have chosen not to be vaccinated has become the norm. The unvaccinated people are placed in the anti-vax, unscientific, and conspiracy theorists camp. They are ostracized by peers, co-workers, and are losing their jobs. In some countries (Australia and Singapore come to mind), the unvaccinated have to depend on others for their basic needs because they are under lockdown. In Australia, they have internment camps the New York Times was reporting on months ago. Damien Cave wrote about his incident, “My experience exposed more than I expected, about human nature but also about the ways that the pandemic keeps pushing countries back into their own peculiar currents of national identity. In the United States, it’s individualism. In Australia, it’s the collectivist urge to protect the many by treating the few as a potential threat, sometimes at the expense of personal liberty.”9
