In response to Mayor’s Desk: Encouraging vaccination
The Mayor’s article states “the vaccine protects us from both getting and spreading COVID-19, including the Delta variant.” An obvious question today would be, “Why is it that every day in Ontario, since at least August 30, 2021, those who are fully vaccinated make up between 22% and 37% of the new COVID cases?” (Look up covid ontario today)
Could it be that Dr. Robert Malone, who is recognized for his role in inventing mRNA vaccine technology, is correct when he says about the experimental vaccine, “The vaccinated are actually the “super-spreaders” that everyone was told about in the beginning of the pandemic. The idea that if you have a workplace where everybody’s vaccinated, you’re not going to have virus spread is totally false. A total lie.”
Having our Mayor promote fear by saying, “By remaining unvaccinated you are putting yourself at risk.” needs to be followed by ‘experimental vaccines are also risky’ as noted in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.
The Government of Canada’s website states (https://bit.ly/3GHZuQU), “for all vaccines and treatments that are authorized in Canada, we’ll review the evidence and scientific data. We’ll then decide whether to authorize the COVID-19 vaccine and will only do so when the evidence shows that the vaccine:
- is safe, effective and of good quality and
- demonstrates that the benefits outweigh the risks.”
The Government of Canada’s website (https://bit.ly/3GCujGy) also goes on to state, “Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to protect our families, communities and ourselves against COVID-19.
“Evidence indicates that vaccines are very effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19, including against Alpha and Delta variants of concern. However, there’s a small percentage of the population who are vaccinated that will still be infected with COVID-19 if they’re exposed to the virus.”
