Doctors Can Prescribe Ivermectin for COVID-19: FDA Lawyer

Doctors are free to prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID-19, a lawyer representing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said this week. “FDA explicitly recognizes that doctors do have the authority to prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID,” Ashley Cheung Honold, a Department of Justice lawyer representing the FDA, said during oral arguments on Aug. 8 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.

Updates: CDC Grand jury investigation and CDC’s ACIP meeting

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) met June 21 and 22 and will meet again June 23. But before we update you on what’s in the immunization pipeline, let’s talk about the CDC grand jury investigation.

A court case demanding that a grand jury look at the actions of the CDC since 2020 is currently in the hands of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Not surprisingly, the federal government has made typical legal maneuvers aimed at getting the plaintiffs thrown out of court on legal technicalities before a judge will even look at the merits of their claims.

Soon, the 9th Circuit will make a ruling on whether the plaintiffs, Senators Kim Thatcher and Dennis Linthicum from Oregon, along with Dr. Henry Ealy and others, have legal legs to stand on. The plaintiffs must file a brief explaining to the court why the federal government is wrong and convince them of a strong, valid reason to be in court. That filing is due July 10, 2023.

You can help. One simple signature can help get this movement to the tipping point. As of this writing, the petition has 270,000 signatures. The more signatures it has, the more weight the petition will carry with the court.

Help the team get the petition over 300,000 signatures to show the court how many Americans are watching and demanding justice. Once filed, the petition will become part of the court record that will be transmitted to the U.S. Supreme Court if an appeal is made and heard.

Click the video to hear from Dr. Ealy and the senators about where things currently stand and to learn of the impact your simple signature can make.

Please sign the petition to investigate the CDC if you haven’t already. Send it to your friends. Post it on your social media.

The CDC’s vaccine recommendation pipeline: ACIP recap

The CDC is currently focused on the recommended immunization schedules, echoing the cries of the World Health Organization to have children and adults “catch up” with schedules after a significant plummet in overall vaccine rates since the pandemic was declared. With the potential that more emergencies could be declared (and multiply if the pandemic treaty and IHR Amendments pass in 2024), manufacturers are lining up to get in the pipeline for vaccines with liability-free sales — and free government marketing to boot. At recent meetings of the ACIP, the overall theme of the conversation has shifted from whether vaccines are safe and effective enough to be recommended to creating a “simplified” recommendation that will be easy to implement.

Every session seemed to focus more on the economic effectiveness of the vaccines than their safety and efficacy. Entire presentations were dedicated to the possible overall dollars saved on health care — in the absence of updated vaccine recommendations.

This conversational shift by the ACIP reflects a trend we at SHF have noticed over the last three years to merge public health with primary care. Throwing out analysis of risk to an individual in favor of population-level universal recommendations is a symptom of that policy sickness. The conversations about polio and pneumococcal vaccines, for example, favored giving more doses if vaccine status was uncertain — and there was no discussion of the possible harms of giving unnecessary doses.

Highlighted Vaccine Votes and Notes

Friday’s agenda includes a safety discussion of the childhood schedule, including aluminum content of vaccines. A discussion about COVID shots, including natural immunity, will follow, closing out the annual June meeting.

You can tune in by 11:45 am EST at this link that includes meeting materials, but it’s easier to stomach these meetings when you watch with friends. Join Dr. Meryl Nass’ livestreamed comments at CHD.tv for down-to-earth and insightful commentary.

Stand for Health Freedom will keep watching the moves of the CDC as it brings on new director Dr. Mandy Cohen from North Carolina in July and keep you updated on the progress of the call for a grand jury investigation.

The first step toward tyranny is to silence the voices of the dissenters. SHF will keep vigil, and keep you updated about what is going on and how we can make strategic moves together to protect health freedom.

What we are watching and what you need to know

There continues to be a lot happening in the health freedom sphere. Rest assured that we’re closely watching and listening on all fronts and all levels of government. This past week, we tuned in to the following hearings to understand any implications for health freedom. We’ll be in touch if action is needed!

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice (ACIP) met to discuss updates on COVID-19.

The Congressional Appropriations Committee held a budget hearing to look at the fiscal year 2024.

A joint congressional subcommittee held a hearing on the data breach at the D.C. Health Exchange.

In the meantime, we wanted you to know about this recent exciting win for our movement, that you can try to emulate in your city.

Florida’s Collier County Board of Commissioners is on a roll! Fresh from taking a stand for their autonomy by refusing a CDC grant with strings attached, these freedom supporters took an additional step on April 11, by passing an ordinance and a resolution to further protect health freedom.

READ ARTICLE HERE: https://standforhealthfreedom.com/blog/collier-2/

And their success can fuel yours! In addition to celebrating this win with them, you can use their health freedom bill of rights as a template to craft a similar ordinance for your county.

Freedom begins at home – in the schools, organizations, cities, and counties where we live, work and play. If we all take a stand locally, we can change the whole country!

Fact:

It has now been three years since this office first wrote information regarding COVID-19.  Here is a reflection from a medical professional.

Comment/Opinion:

March 29, 2023

COVID-19 – Three Years Later

It has been three years since the COVID-19 (Sars-CoV2, Coronavirus) outbreak occurred in the United States.  It has had an impact on American society equal to or greater than any other momentous event in American history.  Its impact on American medicine has been dramatic.  Although much of it is negative and dangerous, the precedents set and the ripples COVID-19 responses produced have set in motion a train in US medical care that will either be destroyed if it pursues a derailed course or will set itself straight again with strength and vigor if we learn the lessons of these few dramatic years.

The Fantastic Success of Fear

The narrative of COVID-19 was set on a backdrop of coordinated, incremental fearmongering and outright lies.  As the virus was spreading from China, dramatic and apocalyptic forecasts of two to three million lives lost, just in the US, were being predicted based on “modeling” that had no rational foundation.  This draconian information was not tempered by real world data in Italy, one of the earliest countries hit by the virus, which showed that COVID-19 was by almost all objective measures a disease of elderly or those with multiple medical conditions; other age groups were not dying or even becoming seriously ill with the disease.   By August 2020, the CDC had to admit that just 6% of COVID-19 deaths listed on their Provisional Death Count Webpage could be conclusively attributed to COVID-19 (1), and in September 2020 the CDC stated that those over the age of 75 years had a 94.65% of NOT dying from COVID-19 if they became ill with it.  Other data revealed a similar high recovery rate from infection. (2)

The false notion that anyone could spread COVID-19, even though they were asymptomatic, was heavily promoted to spread the fear that all of us were dangers to each other.  This led to office, church, and business closures at a scale unprecedented in US history.  Even after credible research showing that asymptomatic individuals have less than a 3% chance of spreading viral illness (3), the mindset and the fear was embedded in the minds of millions.

Even the testing used to determine COVID-19 infection was manipulated and abused.  Testing relied on PCR swabs from the upper airway which used a number of cycles to determine the presence of possible COVID-19.  At first, in concert with appropriate lab techniques, approximately 23 cycles were used to run the tests.  However, shortly after the testing became widespread, the number of cycles mysteriously increased to more than 30 cycles.  Many labs used 40 cycles which caused a false positive rate of 80% or more, leading to a host of mislabeled individuals as having COVID-19.  This is in addition to the developer of the PCR test noting that the PCR test should not be used for diagnosis of COVID-19 as it picks up particles of the virus and not the full virus itself.  The CDC itself issued caution with the use of PCR testing (4).

But this information did not matter.  With regard to the medical community, irrational fear infected many doctors like a 14th century plague.  Physicians developed fear on multiple levels.  On the one hand, they feared getting the virus even though early data revealed it to be no more dangerous than influenza.  Patients reported that their doctor refused to see them if they had a fever, a cough, or other symptoms that patients often get with their seasonal sinus infections or bronchitis.  Some doctors refused to go to restaurants or allow anyone to visit their homes. Other doctors would be seen wearing masks everywhere, even alone in their cars.  One patient revealed that she told she would not be seen since she was sick.  Another doctor bought a motor home so he would not have to be on a plane or in a hotel when traveling.  Another doctor called and asked, in 2021 (a year after the onset of COVID-19 in the United States), if it was OK for him to fly in a plane.  A patient reported that after she came for her appointment for bronchitis and coughed once in the exam room, her doctor kicked her out of the office and yelled her the entire way out of the building, scolding her for exposing the doctor and other patients to potential COVID-19.   With regard to this doctor, it appeared to be out of abject fear of COVID-19 infection.

But fear of illness was not the only type of fear doctors had.  Fear of being outside of the “herd” also infected many doctors as they witnessed the censoring of medical professionals who discussed any ideas contrary to a certain narrative.  Led by the CDC and other organizations, a “do not treat until we have a vaccine” attitude seemed to arise and take hold.  Physicians who presented an abundance of data regarding early treatment of COVID-19 with repurposed drugs (e.g., hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin) were censored and/or harassed.  Complaints were filed to state licensing boards by pharmacists, patients, and fellow physicians in a type of mass formation psychosis never before seen in the United States.  Although no doctor lost his/her license prescribing hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin for COVID-19 (as it is legal to do so), the threat of scrutiny from a state authority scared many physicians and they simply slammed the door on their ill patients requesting this care.  The damage to the doctor/patient relationship was catastrophic.

Hospitals were incentivized to the tune of thousands of dollars to offer remdesivir instead of hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin, even though the World Health Organization refused to recommend remdesivir, which has a 22% chance of causing kidney failure, as a drug to treat COVID-19.  Hospitals were also financially rewarded for every COVID-19 diagnosis they documented, leading to outrageous incidents such as one where a young individual who died in a motorcycle accident was given the diagnosis of COVID-19 on his death certificate.   Hospitals and health care systems now employ over 70% of physicians in the United States.  Many of them prohibited physicians from prescribing potentially life-saving therapies, and physicians who did had their prescriptions denied and/or the physicians were fired.  This led to many physicians simply complying out of fear for their paychecks.  The move from independent physician practice over the past 30 years, where the patient is the physician’s bread and butter, to an employed situation where the doctor’s income is from a medical care system, allowed for doctors to be bullied into compliance with treatment strategies (or lack of them) that they had no freedom from which to move away.

This irrational fear lives on.  Many patients still have difficulty seeing a doctor face to face, either because their doctor demands a “telemedicine” visit or because the doctor wears a mask.  One patient described how he has no clue what his doctor looks like as his doctor of three years still wears a mask when seeing each patient and demands his patients do the same.  This is after numerous research which fails to show any significant benefit in preventing transmission or reception of COVID-19 with wearing a mask. (5)

Ignorance:  The Force Multiplier of Fear

As the virus was spreading in the Spring of 2020, many physicians blindly followed guidelines set forth by the CDC with regard to the treatment (or non-treatment) of COVID-19.  The CDC is first and foremost a data gathering organization.  It provides advisory guidelines and suggestions with regard to the care of patients. (6)  This all changed with COVID-19.  Doctors, for the most part, did whatever the CDC recommended.  Included in this recommendation was that patients would not be treated for COVID-19 until they were significantly ill.  Outpatient management of COVID-19 with hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin was discouraged (but never illegal).  This led many outpatient doctors to simply close the door on understanding this viral illness.

The FDA also recommended against (but did not prohibit) the use of repurposed drugs for early treatment of COVID-19.  However, unbeknownst to many a health care professional, the FDA has regulatory oversight on the approval of drugs for human consumption and their advertising.  A doctor has discretion for what reason a drug is used.  It is legal for physicians to use drugs “off label”, i.e., for purposes other than what they were FDA approved to be used for, if that doctor has appropriate reasons for doing so, including clinical research and/or experience.  This has been a hallmark of American medicine for years.

At times over the past 3 years, it seemed as if patients knew more than their doctors with regard to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and acute treatment of COVID-19.  This led to a significant erosion of patient confidence with regard to the knowledge of their doctors.  Doctors who did treat COVID-19 with repurposed drugs were overwhelmed.

The New Pandemic:  Vaccines

COVID-19 vaccination was hailed as the “fix”, and the only fix, for the spread of infection.  A new technology, gene therapy vaccines (mRNA), never tried on humans for prevention of viral illness, was rapidly amassed and set into motion.  This is despite the failure (and death) of animals when this technology was attempted for an earlier form of Coronavirus (Sars-CoV-1).  The resulting data after the vaccines were rolled out is troubling.  As an example, by February of 2021, both Pfizer (one of the manufacturers of the mRNA vaccines) and the FDA were aware of 275 strokes that occurred in association with these vaccines; 60 of these 275 patients died, with 30 of the 60 deaths occurring within 48 hours of receiving the vaccine.  This information was not made public until a court order one year later. (7)  Numerous other statistics have been made public, including over 34,000 deaths, 1800 heart attacks, 64,000 permanently disabled, and 4000 miscarriages reported in association with receiving COVID-19 vaccination. (8)  Despite these statistics from the CDC and FDA, COVID-19 vaccination continues to be recommended.  Other vaccines have been pulled due to vastly less deaths and injuries associated with them.  Although not all deaths associated with vaccinations can with certainty be blamed on the vaccine, in drug and vaccination reactions, the rule applies:  correlation is cause until abundant evidence points otherwise.

Safety concerns with regard to COVID-19 vaccines are not the only problem with them.  Their effectiveness is seriously questioned.  (9)

The silent response from the American public is deafening:  less than 20% of Americans are “fully vaccinated” to COVID-19 as of this writing.

Hope For  the Future

There are plenty of signs that point to a better future, even if not a total resolution, of the misinformation and fear that has been so much a part of our culture over the past three years.  The truth is coming out in greater amounts.  Doctors previously banned from social media are once again accessible on these platforms.  The lack of further vaccination by a significant amount of the American public reflects a hesitancy, or a wearing out, of the fearmongering that gripped so many people.

We have learned a lot about treating viral illness with repurposed drugs.  Even the virus itself, which did kill and injure thousands of Americans, is much milder than the original form and can be expected to take its place as a cold bug alongside other Coronaviruses that have been a part of the viral landscape in the US for over 50 years.

Many Americans have learned the value of advocating for their health and developing networks of medical care that they can trust and access.  Many people who feared have learned to overcome and manage their fear.   Although for many, the doctor/patient relationship has suffered irreparably, for others, it has been strengthened.

A good number of Americans have returned to a spiritual life and have rediscovered God.  They are submitting themselves to the will of God.  They are also committing themselves to making their community a better place to live, and like the founding fathers of this country, are dedicating themselves to helping future generations have a better life and hopefully learn from these past three years.

It is wrong not to hope.  Hope is integral to good health.  Let us all hope in a better future, God-based, and free of anxiety and unnecessary fear.

Fact:

On February 15, 2023, the Florida Department of Health issued a Health Alert regarding MRNA  Covid-19 vaccine safety. According to data from the state of Florida, “The reporting of life threating conditions increased over 4,400 percent” after the release of Covid-19 vaccines.

Also from this Health Alert, the following is notable: “The findings in Florida are consistent with various studies that continue to uncover such risks. To further evaluate this, the Surgeon General of Florida wrote a letter to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC)  illustrating the risk factors associated with the MRNA Covid-19 vaccines and emphasizing the need for additional transparency. This Health Alert then proceeded to cite three additional studies showing an increased risk of serious adverse events including blood clots, cardiac injury and neurologic disease in Covid-19 vaccines.

Source:

Comment/Opinion:

Data continues to mount regarding the dangers of Covid-19 vaccination. Coupled with the significant data showing, and the CDC itself admitting, that Covid vaccination does not prevent transmission or infection of Covid-19, the recommendation for vaccination is, at best, questionable.

Fact:

CDC has reported that only 16% of Americans have received all of the “recommended” Covid-19 vaccinations.

Source:

Comment/Opinion:

As of this writing, only 16.2% of Americans have received all of the recommended Covid-19 vaccinations according to the CDC. The reasons for this are multiple. As discussed in other information updates, many Americans have been injured by these vaccines or know of individuals who were injured, who were possibly injured, or died from complications of receiving Covid-19 vaccinations. Furthermore, as Covid-19 has become less significant as an infectious agent, the risks of Covid infection, although always very low, are even lower now.

Fact:  Michigan State University has dropped its Covid-19 vaccination requirements for students and employees.

Source: 

https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/news/2023/02/28/msu-drops-covid-19-vaccinations-and-booster-mandate/69955515007/

Comment/Opinion:

In what can be considered as an admission of many things, including the potential danger and lack of benefit of Covid-19 vaccination, this university has finally dropped its requirements for vaccination.  Vaccination for Covid-19, even if it were safe and effective, is questionable for college students as their risk of significant illness or death with Covid-19 is virtually zero.

Fact:

The Surgeon General of Florida has written an important letter to the CDC and the FDA regarding the dangers of Covid-19, regarding concerns of safety related to Covid-19 vaccination

Source:

Comments/Opinion:

Dr. Joseph A Ladapo, MD, PhD, Surgeon General of the state of Florida, has written a significant letter outlining concerns that many physicians have had for over 18 months regarding Covid-19 vaccinations. In his letter, it is obvious that Dr. Ladapo speaks for many concerned physicians when he states the following, “To claim these vaccines are” “safe and effective” while minimizing and disregarding the adverse events is unconscionable.”

At this point, it is obvious that Covid-19 vaccination can no longer be considered safe and effective without first acknowledging and adequately showing that the millions of adverse events associated with these vaccines have been appropriately addressed.

What is the path forward for Covid-19?  At this point, based on over 24  months of treating Covid-19 as well as reviewing the literature regarding Covid-19 and research and data related to this virus, I believe it is safe to conclude at this point that Covid-19 has taken it’s place as the latest in mild, harmless viral infections that affect the nose, sinuses, and throats of Americans for a few days. I believe in almost all cases it should be considered harmless. It can be expected Covid will not be what it was in 2020 as far as its virulence and danger to those who are elderly or have multiple medical problems.   After a thoughtful review of medical literature and the numerous injuries that have occurred in patients who have received these vaccines, vaccination with potentially dangerous and unproven vaccines that have not be shown to decrease transmission or infection with Covid-19 cannot be recommended.

An Update Regarding Coronavirus

Dr. Martin Dubravec

January 5, 2023

Fact:

COVID-19 cases in Michigan continue to be vastly lower this year than their peak in January 2022.

Source:

https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/stats

Comment:

Continued lower rates of COVID-19 continued to other peaks is good news.  Additionally, the severity of the COVID-19 infections in almost all patients is like other Coronaviruses we have in the American population, i.e., a common cold.

Fact:

China has recently reported a significant rise in reported COVID-19 cases including illness and death.

Source:  

https://www.theepochtimes.com/medical-funeral-services-in-china-overwhelmed-as-covid-cases-soar_4955316.html

Comment/Opinion:

China has reported a significant increase in COVID-19 cases. Whether this represents a possible new COVID variant or whole new manufactured COVID virus from a lab remains to be seen.

It is clear that COVID-19 was developed in a laboratory. Various analyses of the viral genetic imprint (viral RNA) shows a variety of genes that are not found in viruses let alone coronaviruses. One gene includes 28 base pairs of a gene thought to cause cytokine storm. This gene comes from a bacteria, not a virus, and was discovered in 1969. It appears that this was inserted into the COVID-19 virus.

It is impossible to get accurate information from China with regard to their cases of COVID-19. The communist government has a long track record of outright misinformation and lying to the world public with regard to COVID-19. Various theories are abundant as to why there is a possible significant increase in the rise of COVID in China. China had draconian lockdown measures and they suddenly lifted them recently. Perhaps people are allowed now to go into public and spread the virus more rapidly. However, we know from an abundance of data that lockdowns do not stop the spread of viruses such as COVID-19. Another possibility is that this is a new variant as was discussed above.  Another possibility is that misinformation is being thrown out to the Chinese public as part of a political power struggle within China. Some have theorized that there is significant leadership struggle in China as the current leader of China tries to become emperor for life.

Another cause for the possible increase in COVID cases in China is variants from other parts of the world now coming into China. Some Chinese officials have blamed outside variants for the rise of COVID cases in China.

Another possibility is like other countries where there are significant cases of non-life threatening COVID-19, China is a highly vaccinated country. There are now increasing amounts of research pointing to the distinct possibility that COVID vaccination actually increases the risk of viral transmission and suppression of immune system activity.  Could the rise in upper respiratory infections in China represent a pandemic of the COVID-vaccinated?  This office will continue to monitor this situation.

Fact:

Americans are becoming increasingly suspicious and concerned about the safety of COVID-19 vaccination. In a recent Rasmussen poll, the following was noted:

  • 57% of Americans have concerns regarding the safety and side effects of COVID-19 vaccination.
  • 41% of vaccinated patients report side effects to COVID-19 vaccination.
  • 7% of vaccinated patients have had what they describe as major side effects to COVID-19 vaccinations.
  • 28% of Americans say that they know someone who has died and that COVID-19 vaccination may have been the cause of their death. That represents 60 to 90 million Americans who believe that COVID-19 vaccinations have possibly caused the death of an acquaintance or family member.
  • 49% of Americans feel that unexplained deaths could be due to COVID-19 vaccinations.
  • 33% of vaccinated patients in this Rasmussen poll feel that COVID-19 vaccinations could be the explanation for unexplained death.

Comment/Opinion:

It is increasingly becoming evident that Americans are becoming very skeptical with regard to the safety of COVID-19 vaccinations. Informed consent is necessary in order for people to competently receive a medical therapy. All patients who receive any vaccinations should have adequate informed consent. No patient should be coerced or forced to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

Fact:

We are seeing significant upper respiratory and lower respiratory tract illnesses in our community. This includes sinusitis, sore throats, bronchitis, and some pneumonia. Significantly fewer patients who are ill with upper respiratory infection are reporting positive home COVID tests to our office. Various theories abound as to why this could be happening.

Source: 

Our office

Comment/Opinion:

We are seeing significant amounts of sinus disease, sore throats, and bronchitis among our patients. This has been going on for approximately the past six weeks. This is not unusual for this time of year with regard to our patient population although it seems as if we might be seeing an increase in number. This increased activity could be due to a number of factors. One factor that concerns some researchers is that since the majority of the population has received at least one COVID vaccine, these vaccines could actually be harmful to the immune system and therefore increase the risk of infection among patients who have been vaccinated. Furthermore, these patients are the sources of infecting others. Another possibility is that we are simply seeing more activity as patients, at least in our area, seem to have resolved much of the fear and isolation that they had over the past two years. This can lead to increased exposure to infectious illnesses and patients will therefore have more exposure to influenza, Strep, and other viruses. Fortunately, our patients are not becoming critically ill as they have with earlier versions of COVID-19.

Many patients are stating that they have COVID-19 symptoms but are not having positive COVID home tests. This may be due to the home tests not being very accurate in picking up milder cases of COVID-19. The home COVID tests rely on picking up proteins that are produced by the virus. The newer variants of COVID-19 have lower viral loads and are not as active. Therefore, a patient with COVID-19 will not have the same amount of virus in them or viral proteins in them. Perhaps the home COVID tests are not picking up this lower level COVID infection. We have seen many patients who seem to have fairly classic COVID symptoms but without a positive COVID test. Fortunately, these patients have milder disease although they still can have flu-like symptoms for two to three days.

Fact:

More studies are coming out with the concerns that COVID vaccination could suppress the immune system. A recent study from the Cleveland Clinic showed that the newest bivalent (two genetic strains of COVID gene therapy vaccine) was 30% effective in preventing COVID. However, a more startling find was that the risk of COVID-19 increased with time since the most recent prior COVID episode and also with the number of vaccine doses received. The authors noted that in those who did not receive COVID vaccines, “their risk of acquiring COVID-19 was lower than those who received a larger number of prior vaccine doses.” In another study, the immune responses of 30 human subjects were analyzed.  In this study, it was found that the third COVID vaccine suppresses antibiotic production. Antibodies are important in infection fighting proteins. The fourth COVID-19 vaccine dose made the problem even worse.

Comment/Opinion:

The above studies represent an increasing body of scientific data showing that COVID gene therapy vaccines can have an opposite effect of what at least some of the components of the vaccine were hoping for. Combined with concerns of safety, the lack of effectiveness of the vaccines makes them questionable for continued use.

Fact:

Recent data released by vaccine manufacturer Pfizer reveals that by the end of February 2021, i.e., within 41 days of the Pfizer vaccine rollout, there were 275 strokes associated with receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. 61 of these, i.e. 22% of these stroke victims, died. 30 of the 60 stroke victims died within 48 hours of receiving COVID-19 vaccination.  Both Pfizer and the FDA were aware of this information in 2021. Despite this, the vaccines were labeled safe and effective.  (It is estimated that approximately 126,212,580 doses of BNT162b2 were shipped worldwide from the receipt of the first temporary authorization for emergency supply on 01 December 2020 through 28 February 2021.  It is not known how many of these doses were given at the time that the data on stroke victims was gathered.)

Comment/Opinion:

 Continued concerns of safety with regard to COVID-19 vaccines are being released to the general public. For any person to make informed consent with regard to any vaccine, patients should have appropriate information before making a decision as to whether or not they will receive a vaccination.

Fact:

Rates of COVID-19 vaccination have significantly fallen since the vaccine rolled out. 79% of the American population has received one dose of COVID-19 vaccination. 68% of Americans have received two doses of COVID vaccination. Only 33% of the American population has received their initial vaccine series and a booster.

Source:

https://usafacts.org/visualizations/covid-vaccine-tracker-states/

Comment/Opinion:

The decreasing rates of COVID vaccination can be due to a variety of factors. Most importantly, safety of the vaccines is increasingly being questioned. The effectiveness of the vaccines is also being questioned by many who have received vaccination and yet still received COVID-19 infection.

There are claims that the vaccines will decrease the severity of COVID infection. However, even before the vaccines were widely available to the American public, the number of people who were dying from COVID-19 compared to the number of people who were infected with COVID was already sharply declining. This was noted as early as January of 2021. The Omicron variant infected many people in Michigan but was overall less dangerous than previous strains of COVID-19. This is typical of coronaviruses in that they become more common but less dangerous over time as they mutate.

Other factors can include “COVID fatigue.” Many people simply have come to the realization that like other infections in the community such as other coronaviruses, influenza, and Strep, it is better that we learn to live with COVID-19, treat it early in susceptible populations, and realize that for most people this infection is nothing to be fearful about. Confidence and educated concern is a better option than continued worry and anxiety over this infection.

Physicians for Informed Consent Challenges the Basis for “Shot” Mandates

Press Release
Physicians for Informed Consent Challenges the Basis for COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates

According to Physicians for Informed Consent, new data raise serious concerns over the risks of hospitalization in people vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., November 11, 2022 (Newswire) –

Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) has released an update to its educational document “COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates: 21 Scientific Facts That Challenge the Assumptions.” Developed from data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, National Library of Medicine, and other established sources, the PIC document covers issues of critical importance to both the medical community and the public. Reflecting key scientific research, the document refutes the basis for COVID-19 vaccine mandates. For example, according to Physicians for Informed Consent, studies (referenced here) show:

  • COVID-19 vaccines may increase the risk of hospitalizations in vaccinated people.
    A study published in Vaccine found that the number of serious adverse events in people vaccinated with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is higher than the number of COVID-19 hospitalizations prevented. For every two COVID-19 hospitalizations prevented in vaccinated people, there are 10 COVID-19 vaccine serious adverse events.
  •  COVID-19 vaccines increase the risk of myocarditis in young men.
    A study published in Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety shows that in males aged 18 to 24 years, the risk of myocarditis is 1 in 1,862 after the second dose of a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine.
  • COVID-19 vaccines increase the risk of cardiac-related deaths in men.
    A study by the Florida Department of Health found there is a 97% increased risk of cardiac-related deaths in males aged 18–39 within 28 days of being vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • COVID-19 vaccines increase the length of menstrual cycles in women.
    A study published in BMJ found that in women, vaccination with two doses within the same menstrual cycle leads to a 3.7-day increase in that cycle’s length. The consequences of this phenomenon are not known.

It can take months or even years for new data to reach the general medical community. As such, some healthcare providers may be unaware of COVID-19 vaccine facts and figures. In providing this document, PIC highlights important statistics to help medical professionals and their patients more easily assess the risks of the vaccine compared to the risks of COVID-19. In addition, as a nonprofit organization with headquarters in California — where AB 2098, a doctor-censorship bill, was recently signed into law — PIC asserts that it is now more important than ever for the general public to be able to access science-based COVID-19 analyses.

“AB 2098 is immoral and anti-science,” said Dr. Shira Miller, founder and president of Physicians for Informed Consent. “PIC as an organization will continue speaking out and educating the public about COVID-19, COVID-19 vaccines, and the need to have doctors whose professional opinion hasn’t been censored — because without free speech informed consent is not possible.”

PIC Releases New Educational Documents Assessing Risks of Hepatitis B Compared to Risks of the Hepatitis B Vaccine

Press Release
Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) Releases New Educational Documents Assessing Risks of Hepatitis B Compared to Risks of the Hepatitis B Vaccine

Documents show hepatitis B vaccine is not proven safer than hepatitis B for normal-risk children.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., September 13, 2022 (Newswire) –

Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) has released two new educational documents: Hepatitis B – Disease Information Statement (DIS) “Hepatitis B: What Parents Need to Know” and Hepatitis B – Vaccine Risk Statement (VRS) “Hepatitis B Vaccine: Is It Safer Than Hepatitis B?” Developed from data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Center for Health Statistics, the documents assist readers in assessing the risks of hepatitis B compared to the risks of the hepatitis B vaccine, so they can engage in making an informed vaccine decision.

“New parents need to know that if their infants are normal-risk, which 99% of newborns are, then the chance of them getting fatal hepatitis B is 0.00001% or one in seven million — a prevaccine statistic,” said PIC Founder and President Dr. Shira Miller. “They also need to know that all hepatitis B vaccines include the neurotoxin aluminum — which means there’s a 100% guarantee their infant will be exposed to aluminum if they get injected with a hepatitis B vaccine. And finally, they need to know that for newborns specifically, because of their low body weight, it appears that the amount of aluminum in hepatitis B vaccines exceeds the maximum safety levels established by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.”

Packed with relevant scientific information, the documents answer numerous important questions, including:

  • What is hepatitis B?
  • What are side effects of the hepatitis B vaccine?
  • Is the hepatitis B vaccine safer than hepatitis B?

The documents present key facts and figures that are essential for informed decision-making. For example:

  • An unvaccinated normal-risk child has a 1 in 7,000,000 (or 0.00001%) chance of contracting fatal hepatitis B annually.
  • About 50% of hepatitis B-vaccinated children lose their immunity by age 5, and the vaccine has not made a measurable impact on the prevalence of chronic hepatitis B infection.
  • Seizures may occur in about 1 in 1,300 children vaccinated with the hepatitis B vaccine.
  • The hepatitis B vaccine contains an amount of aluminum that’s 75 times greater than the maximum safe level of aluminum in the bloodstream per day for a 7.3-pound infant.
  • The Institute of Medicine (IOM) found that evidence is inadequate to rule out the possibility that hepatitis B vaccination leads to more than two dozen neurological and autoimmune disorders.

The Physicians for Informed Consent documents demonstrate that the hepatitis B vaccine is not proven to be safer than hepatitis B for normal-risk children. Parents and healthcare providers are encouraged to read these new documents to make an informed risk-benefit calculation.

Physicians for Informed Consent Updates Its Information Statement About Vaccines and Immunocompromised Schoolchildren, Includes Data on COVID-19 Vaccines

The updated document presents five reasons why the vaccination status of other schoolchildren is not a significant risk to immunocompromised schoolchildren

Newport Beach, CA – March 28, 2022 (Newswire)

Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC), an educational nonprofit organization focused on science and statistics, has released an update to its information statement entitled “Vaccines: What About Immunocompromised Schoolchildren?” Developed as a concise, two-page educational brief, the document includes new information about COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccines, and addresses the common question, “Is it a health risk to immunocompromised kids if other schoolchildren are not vaccinated?”

A safe environment for all people, including schoolchildren, is the goal of everyone involved in public health. Because immunocompromised schoolchildren are among the most vulnerable children in school, this educational document focuses on concerns about their safety, and provides key scientific data about infectious diseases, and the effects and limitations of vaccination. Importantly, the document shows five reasons why the vaccination status of a child is not a significant risk to other classmates in general or immunocompromised schoolchildren in particular. For example…

Update From the Physicians for Informed Consent – 02/22/22

 From Physicians for Informed Consent – dated 02/22/22

PRESS RELEASE

Physicians for Informed Consent: CDC Data Show COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Has Had No Measurable Impact on COVID-19 Mortality in the U.S.

Newly released document highlights 20 scientific facts that challenge the assumptions underlying COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. (PRWeb) – February 22, 2022

Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC), an educational nonprofit organization focused on science and statistics, has released a new educational document entitled, “COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates: 20 Scientific Facts That Challenge the Assumptions.” The document helps readers become more familiarized with the scientific facts regarding COVID-19, its treatment options, and the COVID-19 vaccines.

Developed in a reader-friendly format, the document highlights available scientific data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials, and it addresses the assumptions underlying COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Twenty scientific facts are provided on key public health topics, including:

  • The lack of a long-term benefit of the COVID-19 vaccines on the spread of COVID-19
  • The lack of a proven benefit of the COVID-19 vaccines on COVID-19 deaths
  • The risks of COVID-19 vaccine injections versus the safety of SARS-CoV-2 infection in children
  • Waning vaccine immunity and booster shot efficacy
  • COVID-19 early-treatment and prevention options

“Vaccine mandates are unethical because they attempt to coerce people to act against their own judgment, and because they are unscientific,” said Dr. Shira Miller, founder and president of PIC. “Our focus is on delivering scientific data about infectious diseases and vaccines which are often overlooked in the mainstream. We developed this new document to help physicians, policymakers and the public better understand and communicate about the scientific facts that challenge the assumptions underlying COVID-19 vaccine mandates.”

The document reveals CDC data — from April 2020 through January 2022 — which show that mass vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccine has had no measurable impact on COVID-19 mortality in the U.S. In addition, short-term clinical trial data indicate that 1 in 6 to 1 in 9 people 12–55 years of age who receive mRNA COVID-19 vaccines suffer severe (grade 3) systemic reactions, and long-term safety studies have not been conducted. And finally, more than 53% of Americans have already had COVID-19 and may have greater protection against reinfection than vaccinated people.

An Update Regarding the Coronavirus January21, 2022 from Dr. Dubravec

An Update Regarding Coronavirus 

Dr. Martin Dubravec

January 21, 2022

This information is being provided on a periodic basis for patients and others interested in updates regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19, Sars-CoV-2).  Facts are provided.  My comments and opinions are listed separately.  The goal of these updates has been to help the community in keeping informed of issues regarding Coronavirus from a local medical perspective.  As a clinical immunologist, I believe it is vital that information be shared with regard to this important issue.  If you would like to receive this information via Email, feel free to Email us at aasc1234@protonmail.com .   The opinions expressed in this Email are that of Dr. Dubravec.  Good doctors can disagree.

Fact:  

The FDA has approved two pills for the acute treatment of COVID-19:  Pfizer’s Paxlovid and Merck and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics’ molnupiravir.  As far as effectiveness, Paxlovid showed an 89% decrease in risk of hospitalization or death and molnupiravir showed a 30% decrease.  Paxlovid is contraindicated with a host of medications.

https://www.fda.gov/media/155050/download

https://www.fda.gov/media/155054/download

Comment/Opinion:

These two new medications for COVID-19 are the newest form of treatment for the virus.  They are meant to be given within 5 days of the onset of symptoms and are to be given for “mild to moderate” COVID-19.  Paxlovid has a host of drug-drug interactions which will most likely limit its use.  The cost of this therapy for a 5 day course is expected to be about $700.  The drug interaction risk with molnupiravir is unknown, and its effectiveness is certainly not impressive at only 30%.  Availability of these drugs is also questionable as demand may be high and only limited supplies are available.  These drugs are given as a 5 day course.

When comparing these drugs to Ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine, it seems that Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine are still favored for acute treatment, based on the combination of factors including availability, cost, safety, limited drug-drug interactions, and cost.  For example, hydroxychloroquine showed an 84% decrease in the risk of hospitalization in a randomized controlled trial when given early with zinc and Zithromax (azithromycin).

The other issue is whether or not these medications will be necessary at all in the future.  Although COVID-19 is expected to be with us indefinitely, it is becoming less and less dangerous but still present and may always pose a risk of severe illness (like any viral illness) in small, vulnerable populations (those with multiple severe medical problems).  Experts in the field of virology are predicting that COVID-19 will become simply another cause of the common cold.

Fact:

People with positive COVID-19 tests have spiked again over the past few weeks.  Death rates from COVID-19 remain low.

https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/0,9753,7-406-98163_98173—,00.html

Comment/Opinion:

The rise in COVID-19 is most likely secondary to the Omicron variant of COVID-19.  It is very active in our area.  As described elsewhere, this is not as severe as other variants of COVID-19.  This is not to say that people are not feeling it:  the symptoms of Omicron are still significant at times, ie, like a bad flu.  The difference is that hospitalizations seem to be significantly less among our patients and other problems, such as secondary pneumonia, are not seen to any significant extent.  Patients are feeling acute flu-like symptoms earlier than the delta variant and are calling for advice and treatment sooner.  We have noted that vaccinated patients may be getting hit harder with Omicron. We will continue to see if this becomes a major trend among our patients.

Some experts are stating this may be the last major peak of COVID-19.  We will see if that’s the case.  For high risk patients and those over 40, it is still reasonable to consider early treatment with antiviral, antibiotic, and anti-blood clotting therapy.

Fact:

Great Britain has abruptly ended lockdowns, vaccine mandates and other public health measures related to the COVID-19 epidemic.  France and Denmark are also looking at easing restrictions.  Austria has voted to mandate all citizens over the age of 18 be vaccinated by February or face fines and possibly jail time.

https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/20/europe/austria-covid-vaccine-mandate-vote-intl/index.html

Comment/Opinion:

The confusing array of new mandates and easing of up mandates across the world carries no rational explanation.  It is bizarre that Great Britain is suddenly ending its drastic restrictions on personal freedom while Austria (birthplace of Adolph Hitler) is instituting the most comprehensive forcing of vaccination among its people.  Many are concerned that, once again, other forces than science are driving this patchwork of politician action.  

One bit of science that could be playing a role in the easing up of mandates is that Omicron may be the last major source of COVID-19 illness before the virus becomes just another cold bug.  Another potential explanation for easing restrictions is that the promise of the vaccines has not been realized.  The president of the pharmaceutical company Pfizer recently admitted that the 2 shot Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was not effective in preventing COVID-19( https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2022/01/11/pfizer-ceo-our-vaccines-offer-little-protection-n2601670) .  However, he went on to state that boosters could be effective.  We were told that the Pfizer vaccine was 95% effective in treating COVID-19.  With vast numbers of people getting COVID-19 despite being vaccinated, social distancing, wearing masks, locking down, etc,, perhaps governmental leaders are beginning to second guess the measures they have long advocated.  Maybe the citizens of these countries are beginning to lose their fear of a virus that will be with us and will become even less significant over time.

Fact:  

We have seen a significant rise in patients with COVID-19 (symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and positive COVID-19 test). This is occurring worldwide. It is the Omicron variant is thought to be the main contributor to this rise in COVID-19.  Research indicates it is a milder form of the virus.

https://www.med.hku.hk/en/news/press/20211215-omicron-sars-cov-2-infection

Comment/Opinion:  

The Omicron variant seems to be the primary cause of an increase in COVID cases. Fortunately, this seems to be a much milder form of COVID infection. Based on information thus far, many patients are reporting less than five days of symptoms. Symptoms are also milder, hospitalizations are seemingly less with this variant, and deaths are significantly reduced and in many cases not seen in communities where Omicron COVID-19 is prevalent. 

The good news is that this variant is mild and represents what could be the last stages of the COVID-19 epidemic. The Omicron variant represents what has been predicted for quite some time with regard to COVID. As time goes on, mutations in the virus would make the virus significantly less dangerous. Hopefully, this virus will become no different than that of other coronaviruses that have been in the United States for over 40 years. These coronaviruses are often the cause of a common cold. 

Fact:  

The Omicron variant is proving itself to be resistant to vaccination. COVID vaccinations do not seem to have any impact in preventing the spread of Omicron. Furthermore, patients who have had COVID-19 in the past can have breakthrough COVID infections with Omicron.

Increased risk of SARS-CoV-2 reinfection associated with emergence of the Omicron variant in South Africa


Comment/Opinion:  

The current vaccines for COVID-19, based on various research, do not seem to prevent the transmission or infection with Omicron. Also, new research indicates that natural immunity to COVID-19 infection may not eliminate the risk of getting the Omicron variant of COVID-19. Nonetheless, patients who have antibodies to COVID-19 may still have protection against Omicron although not complete protection against Omicron. The good news is that regardless of this, Omicron infection seems to be mild and in many patients no worse than the common cold. Omicron was first noted in South Africa and the rates of COVID infection in South Africa are beginning to go down significantly. 

As was stated in previous email updates, we have been monitoring closely to see if mutations in the COVID-19 virus may cause the virus to escape the protection of natural immunity in patients and cause infection in patients who have had COVID-19. This represents the natural evolution of viral infections. Hopefully, we will see overall continued good news with regard to COVID-19 infection. 

There have been an increasing number of experts in the media discussing the need to re-evaluate the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines and our national vaccine strategy. Also, experts have discussed the need not to panic with regard to this virus as it is becoming milder and milder over time. 

We continue to see some cases of patients who become significantly ill with COVID-19. However, the experience in this office is that patients with COVID-19 are having milder symptoms when they do get COVID. We are starting to see some patients who have had a good history of COVID infection in the past now develop COVID again albeit more mild.  At this time, it is still reasonable to be aggressive in early treatment of COVID-19 in high risk patients who become ill with milder versions of COVID-19.  Also, we are still seeing some cases of significant COVID-19 illness in patients.  This could be due to those patients having an earlier variant causing their illness.  It does appear that both Delta and Omicron variants, as well as a host of undetermined other variants, have spread throughout our area and can occur simultaneously in a community.

It should be noted that influenza is also prevalent in our community. Patients should keep that in mind if they do come down with an infection. It is very worthwhile to consider influenza infection in addition to COVID infection when discussing with your doctor the symptoms you are having that could be related to a respiratory-viral infection. Despite what many of the media may portray, the overall picture with regard to COVID is good in the sense that we are seeing milder and milder COVID infection which hopefully will be reflected in a significant decrease in hospitalization due to COVID-19. We will continue to monitor this situation as it unfolds. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact this office. We continue to advocate for common sense measures with regard to COVID prevention, treatment, and management of side effects from the infection.

An Update Regarding the Coronavirus December 29, 2021 from Dr. Dubravec

An Update Regarding the Coronavirus

Fact:  
 
After peaking on November 20, 2021, the number of people with reported positive COVID-19 tests has come down.
 
Source:
 
 
Comment/Opinion:
 
We are still being notified of a number of people with COVID-19 (symptoms +positive COVID-19 test results) although the numbers of people are less than a month ago.  This could change as new variants, including but not limited to the Omicron variant, continue to go through Michigan and the United States.  We are beginning to notice milder cases of COVID-19, i.e., less pneumonia and less severe fatigue than in October and November of this year.  The numbers of positive tests may also be off as people increasingly have been testing themselves at home.  Unless they report positive tests or have tests repeated at a medical facility, the number of COVID-19 patients may be even more inaccurate than they currently are.
 
Early treatment remains the key.  One resource is the following:
 
 
Fact:  
 
The CDC published information on some of the initial Omicron variant patients it had documented.  In these patients, 79% of them were vaccinated and 33% had received vaccinations for COVID-19 and a booster vaccination.  Only one of the patients was hospitalized for COVID-19 and none died of COVID-19.
 
Source:
 
 
Comment/Opinion:
 
This publication by the CDC represents a small, but informative, view into emerging mutations of COVID-19.  As is expected, as viruses mutate and spread, they usually become more contagious but less intense and deadly.  Deaths from Omicron are expected to be few and far between.  Even though the death rate from COVID-19 has been extremely low when compared to the number of people exposed and/or who have had the disease, the death rate with Omicron can be expected to be even lower.  It is possible, and some experts in the field of public health and virology agree, that this is a great sign that COVID-19 may be going the way of other Coronaviruses in turning out to be no more than the common cold over time.
 
Viruses often become less dangerous over time because they “want” to survive.  This does not mean they will go away.  Also, as our immune systems repeatedly get exposed to these viruses, our immune systems become more and more experienced at fighting off the virus regardless of the mutation.  Although there are exceptions to this (for instance, with the flu), it seems like COVID-19 infection is offering long-term immunity to the  COVID-19 virus.  The CDC has yet to publish any report of people who have had bona fide COVID-19 infection who were then noted to become infected again.
 
We will continue to monitor this situation closely.  Our clinical experience in this office reflects that people who are getting COVID-19 now are less sick than those who have gotten it earlier this month and in previous months.  There will always be exceptions and we cannot predict the future with absolute clarity, but the news at this time looks good.

Fact:
 
We have been inundated by letters, gifts, prayers, and a host of other well wishes by our patients and even others who are not patients.
 
Comment/Opinion:
 
It is with a huge debt of gratitude that this final newsletter of 2021 ends with my appreciation to all of you who have supported this office with your patronage, trust, encouragement, gifts, and prayers.  We have had a busy year, to say this least.  For many of you, it has been extremely stressful.  Some of you have lost family or friends to COVID-19 or to complications from the disease.  Some of you have lost your jobs due to vaccine mandates. 
 
For 2022, we will redouble our efforts to give the best possible care was can for our patients.  We appreciate your patience and understanding if we have not been able to reach all of you or reach you in a timely manner.  This newsletter will continue in 2022 as long as there is information that I feel is worthwhile/necessary to send out.  Please keep us in your prayers; they have sustained us and must continue to be raised to Heaven that we will persevere in our commitment to each of our patients in need.  Our office wishes you the best for 2022.

Fact:

Positive COVID tests in the state of Michigan rose in October, but not to the same degree as previous months.

Source

https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/0,9753,7-406-98163_98173—,00.html

Comment/Opinion:

If we are to assume that positive COVID test results are reflective of the COVID-19 cases in Michigan, we see a rise in cases has occurred and is coming down.  Hopefully, we will see this trend continue.  It is unclear whether or not this represents a new variant of COVID-19 (some call it a new subvariant or variants) or whether or not other factors may be playing a role. 

Fact:

Home tests (rapid antigen tests) for COVID-19 are now readily available.  Studies have shown a false negative rate of approximately 20-38%.

Comment/Opinion:

Testing for COVID-19 has been problematic from the start.  The first major testing that was done is called the PCR test (polymerase chain reaction test).  The PCR was never meant to diagnose disease; it was developed to look for evidence of a virus or bacteria by looking for pieces of genetic material (DNA or RNA).  Although this can give evidence of a possible infection, it does not mean that the virus or bacteria is actually there.  Furthermore, PCR testing is done based on cycle thresholds, which are sort of like magnifications on a telescope.  As you use more cycle thresholds, the ability to pick up smaller and smaller pieces of genetic material goes up, but your risk of picking up unrelated material also goes up.  For reasons not entirely known, the cycle thresholds in the United States have often been way above what many consider to be reasonable (reasonable being about 25 cycles, for example).  Therefore, with cycle thresholds of 40 or higher, the false positive rate could easily be significantly higher than the true positive rate.

The rapid home tests for COVID-19 look for non-genetic proteins that the virus produces.  This makes them much more readily able to give a quick result.  However, if someone is early in their illness, there may not be enough protein for the test to pick up (i.e., if the viral load is not yet high enough).  This would explain why many who believe they have COVID-19 may not have a positive test for a few days.

The bottom line is that decisions regarding the diagnosis of COVID-19 should not be based on a test alone.  As the saying goes, don’t treat the test; treat the patient.  Although testing can be a significant part of diagnosing and treating COVID-19, other factors often must play an important or more important role than simply a PCR or rapid antigen test.

Fact:  

New variants of COVID-19 continue to be found.

Comment/Opinion:

New variants of viruses are common.  Some viruses tend to mutate and produce more variants than others.  The same can be said of bacteria; some bacteria mutate more readily than others.  At this time, it seems as if COVID-19 is tracking like many viruses – less lethal over time but possibly more contagious as new variants evolve.  Fortunately, new variants of COVID-19 seem to be less lethal.  Our office will continue to monitor this development.

Fact:

Recent recommendations for vaccinating children as young as 5 years of age for COVID-19 have not come without controversy.  The former Secretary of Health and Human Services and renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson voiced concerns of vaccinating children for COVID-19.   

The recommendations for vaccination of children are based in part on data showing a 90.7% effectiveness in preventing COVID-19 at 7 days after being vaccinated.

The vaccine packet insert (an FDA-approved document giving detailed information of a drug or vaccine) states the following:

·         The recipient or their caregiver has the option to accept or refuse Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.

·         The significant known and potential risks and benefits of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, and the extent to which such risks and benefits are unknown

http://labeling.pfizer.com/ShowLabeling.aspx?id=16073

Comment/Opinion:

Shared decision making between a doctor and the patient’s parent(s)/guardian should be the basis for deciding whether or not a child receives a vaccine.  This is clearly reflected in the package insert of the vaccine.  No parent should be pressured into giving their child a vaccine.  Parents should be encouraged to make as educated a decision as possible before giving vaccines of any kind to children.

“Every 2 Hours, Another Child Suffers a Seizure from the MMR Vaccine” – Update from PIC – 11/05/21

 From:

Physicians for Informed Consent

Every 2 hours another child suffers a seizure from the MMR vaccine

Dear Members and Friends,

We’re reaching out to you today in recognition of National Epilepsy Awareness Month (NEAM), November 2021. Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) recognizes this national month of awareness by providing information to families, organizations, and the public about the prevalence of seizures from the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine.

Seizures from the MMR vaccine occur in about 1 in 640 children within two weeks of receiving the first dose of the MMR vaccine, amounting to approximately 5,700 cases of MMR-vaccine seizures annually in the U.S. A significant portion of MMR-vaccine seizures may cause permanent harm, as 5% of febrile seizures may result in epilepsy. Consequently, about 300 MMR-vaccine seizures (5% of 5,700) may lead to epilepsy annually.

More information on these findings, including details on the supporting studies as well as educational resources, can be found at physiciansforinformedconsent.org/mmr-seizures.

We invite you to share educational resources with your family, friends and physicians. With knowledge, there’s power to make informed decisions!

With kind regards,

The PIC Volunteers

An Update Regarding the Coronavirus September 29, 2021 from Dr. Dubravec

An Update Regarding the Coronavirus 

Dr. Martin Dubravec

September 29, 2021

This information is being provided on a periodic basis for patients and others interested in updates regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19, Sars-CoV-2).  Facts are provided.  My comments and opinions are listed separately.  The goal of these updates has been to help the community in keeping informed of issues regarding Coronavirus from a local medical perspective.  As a clinical immunologist, I believe it is vital that information be shared with regard to this important issue.  If you would like to receive this information via Email, feel free to Email us at aasc1234@protonmail.com .   Readers are encouraged to seek as much information as possible regarding COVID-19.  Your patience with any unintentional typos in these updates is appreciated!


Fact:

We have treated a significant number of patients with COVID-19 over the past two weeks.  However, this week, we have seen a decrease in the number of cases.  Like March/April 2021, this office has seen a peak of calls regarding COVID-19 over the span of about 10 days, followed by a week of few calls, and then another 10 days of heavy phone calls regarding active COVID-19 symptoms.

Despite over 79% of Michiganders over the age of 65 having received at least one dose of an experimental gene therapy COVID-19 vaccination, they remain overwhelmingly the most significant group of people to die from COVID-19.  The vaccines have had no impact on the death rates in this group according to data generated by the state of Michigan.

Comment/Opinion:

We can learn a lot regarding COVID-19 when we treat and follow those with the infection.  This is only one office’s experience, but it nonetheless is of interest and may be helpful in treating patients.  Comparisons can be made to previous flares of COVID-19 in our area.

One significant observation is that this latest increase in COVID-19 cases is disproportionately severely attacking men compared to women.  Although both sexes are getting COVID-19, the only group getting hospitalized (indicating severe symptoms requiring supplemental oxygen) are men (in the patients with whom we have interacted).  Nausea, fever, back pain, severe fatigue, and lung symptoms are very common now.  Loss of taste or smell is not a common symptom with this latest flare.  Taken together, these indicate a distinct possibility that we are seeing a new variant of COVID-19 in our area.  There is significant controversy with regard to the concept of variants of COVID-19 as less than 5% of COVID-19 swabs are being analyzed for variants.  Furthermore, the science of identifying variants is at times seemingly sketchy, i.e., what is defined as a variant and how was it found?  However, after following scores of COVID-19 positive patients and their symptoms, it is clear to me that COVID-19 continues to evolve.  The death rate and hospitalization rates of COVID-19 remain extremely low.  Nonetheless, it can be deadly and no treatment is 100% effective in curing this disease or stopping death from COVID-19 in all cases.  We can only do our best to be prudent in trying to prevent illness and in actively treating the disease as early as possible.  We continue to see significant benefit in the use of early multi-medicine treatment for COVID-19.

One of the treatments that can be extremely effective in combating COVID-19 is the EARLY use of monoclonal antibody therapy.  It is safe and has received Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA for COVID-19.  The challenge is getting it early. There are also moral reservations for this   treatment as its development has involved the use of fetal stem cells.  It must be given in an infusion center and is currently distributed by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to certain facilities.  Our experience has been that the demand has far outstripped the ability of various facilities to give out the infusions.  Nonetheless, we continue to try in our efforts to get early treatment for COVID-19.  The use of these infusions for a high risk individual who carries a significant risk of death from COVID-19 may be a consideration.

It is clear that COVID-19 is not going away, appears less lethal, is certainly still contagious, and is still very treatable.  The misinformation regarding this disease remains very significant.  (See below.)  

Fact:

Misinformation regarding COVID-19 continues to be prominent.  Discussions regarding raw data are often lacking.

Attorney Thomas Renz has released a presentation of data he received from the Center for Medicare Services (Medicare) regarding COVID-19 treatment and vaccination in the elderly population of the United States.  The Medicare population makes up about 20% of the American population and has been significantly impacted by COVID-19.

Source:  

ATTORNEY THOMAS RENZ “We Got Them. Fact Check This!” ALL NEW WHISTLEBLOWER INFO


Comment/Opinion: 

This latest information regarding COVID-19 should be concerning to us all.  We need to take a long and hard look at how we as a nation are dealing with this disease.
