Let's go! Call to action, part 2, CDC
The VRBPAC meeting did not go the way we wanted it to. But the road is long and it rewards perseverance. So let’s get back on the horse and take our fight to the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) that will review Pfizer’s EUA application for kids 5 to 11 at its meeting on Nov. 2. Once again, the people who are harming children have names and addresses and it is our democratic right to contact them to urge them to reject Pfizer’s EUA application.
This article has several parts. First I list 5 reason to vote No (pick your favorites or share your own insights) followed by instructions for calling, emailing, and faxing. Then I list the contact information for every person who has a Vote at the ACIP meeting on Nov. 2. Please share your best reasons to vote No with everyone on this list. In the comments below please let me know how you are going and if I need to make any corrections.
If ACIP approves the Pfizer EUA for kids 5 to 11 it would be a crime against humanity. Thousands of children would be injured and killed by this shot while Pharma becomes even richer. And such a decision would deepen divisions and increase the possibility of secession and partition of our nation. We have 5 days to find the moral conscience of every person on this committee. Let’s goooooo!!!!
Reasons to reject Pfizer’s EUA application for mRNA shots for children ages 5 to 11:
1. There is no COVID health emergency in children 5 to 11. An Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) requires a health emergency and the absence of any existing treatments. In this case, an EUA is invalid on both counts. In a meta-analysis combining data from 11 countries, Stanford researchers Cathrine Axfors and John Ioannidis found that children ages 0-19 infected with COVID have a 99.9973% survival rate. The infection fatality rate in children is so low that Pfizer’s clinical trials involving 2,300 kids did not detect any health benefit at all from their shots. The Pfizer COVID shots will likely kill far more children than COVID. Furthermore, there are a wide range of existing treatments that are safe and effective.
2. The vaccine does not stop infection, transmission, hospitalization, nor death. A recent study from the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies states it plainly: “Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to level of vaccination across 68 countries and 2,947 counties in the United States.” Researchers found that, “countries with higher percentage of the population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people. Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days.”
3. The Pfizer mRNA vaccine causes catastrophic side effects, particularly myocarditis and pericarditis in youth. The CDC’s own analysis of “Myopericarditis following COVID-19 vaccination: Updates from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)” showed astonishing increases in the youngest age brackets.
Myocarditis is only one of the side effects from Pfizer’s COVID shot (see OpenVAERS for a list of additional harms). And VAERS underreports harms from vaccines (see underreporting estimates here, here, and here).
4. Mass vaccination turns kids into shedders of more infectious variants. Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche writes:
“Under no circumstances should young and healthy people be vaccinated as it will only erode their protective innate immunity towards Coronaviruses (CoV) and other respiratory viruses. Their innate immunity normally/ naturally largely protects them and provides a kind of herd immunity in that it dilutes infectious CoV pressure at the level of the population, whereas mass vaccination turns them into shedders of more infectious variants. Children/ youngsters who get the disease mostly develop mild to moderate disease and as a result continue to contribute to herd immunity by developing broad and long-lived immunity. If you are vaccinated and get the disease, you may develop life-long immunity too but why would you take the risk of getting vaccinated, especially when you’re young and healthy? Firstly, there is the risk of potential side effects; secondarily, there is the ever increasing risk that your vaccinal antibodies will no longer be functional while still binding to the virus, thereby increasing the likelihood of antibody dependent enhancement or even severe disease...."
5. There is an emerging body of evidence that shows that COVID vaccines leave people less well off than doing nothing at all. According to an analysis by Alex Berenson:
“What the British are saying is they are now finding the vaccine interferes with your body’s innate ability after infection to produce antibodies against not just the spike protein but other pieces of the virus. Specifically, vaccinated people don’t seem to be producing antibodies to the nucleocapsid protein, the shell of the virus, which are a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people. This means vaccinated people will be far more vulnerable to mutations in the spike protein EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN INFECTED AND RECOVERED ONCE (or more than once, probably). It also means the virus is likely to select for mutations that go in exactly that direction because those will essentially give it an enormous vulnerable population to infect. And it probably is still more evidence the vaccines may interfere with the development of robust long-term immunity post-infection.”
The Pfizer mRNA vaccine fails any reasonable risk benefit analysis in connection with children.
I am asking you to call, email, and fax the people listed below to urge them to reject Pfizer’s EUA application for kids ages 5 to 11.
What to say on the phone:
Hi, my name is ____________. I’m calling to urge you to vote No on Pfizer’s EUA application for children ages 5 to 11. Pfizer has not demonstrated any health benefits for children and the potential harms are enormous. Thank you honoring your Hippocratic Oath and the Nuremberg Code by voting No.

(I’m not even sure what to say about this one. She lost a daughter to whooping cough at 12 weeks. I take her claim at face value. But ACIP has no voting members who are parents of vaccine injured kids and that’s a double standard that is not fair. Perhaps just pray for this person.)

It’s surreal working through this list. It quickly becomes apparent that the CDC chose the most vociferous cheerleaders for vaccination they could possibly find. Every person on this list has a financial conflict of interest. That is not good science.
The U.S. military knows the dangers of groupthink — they know that if they get stuck inside their information bubble that Americans will die. So when the U.S. military develops a plan they always have 2 teams — a Blue Team that defends the status quo and a Red Team that looks for any vulnerability or weaknesses in the plan. And then they hash things out through rigorous debate.
CDC officials use military titles but they violate scientific and strategic best practices. The above list is the Blue Team. There is not a single independent voice on there. We are the Red Team. When we take power we will dismantle the CDC and organize public health around scientific best practices. But until then we have to find a way to reach the moral conscience of every member of the Blue Team.
Be gentle with yourself and with them. Change is painful for everyone. Pray that their hearts and minds will open to the more complex reality we all know is true. Blessings to all the warrior moms and dads, grandparents, siblings, cousins, extended family, friends, and neighbors. 🙏
