November 24, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – The Chief Scientific Advisor of Trump’s Operation Warp Speed vaccine plan has urged trust in the vaccine, saying that approved vaccines could be issued even in mid-December, with an initial 20 million vaccinated even before the end of the year.
Dr. Moncef Slaoui gave his message in a number of TV interviews on Sunday morning, saying to ABC News that as part of Operation Warp Speed, “we are ready to start shipping vaccines within 24 hours from approval.”
This turnaround would result in people potentially being “immunized…within 48 hours from the approval.” With this swift rollout of vaccines, MedScape reports that up to “20 million” people could be given vaccines before the end of December, with a further 30 million people vaccinated each successive month.
As to the possible date for the arrival of the first vaccine, the Food and Drug Administration is meeting on December 10 to discuss approving the Pfizer vaccine, with vaccines possibly being given out as early as December 11.
Pfizer recently announced its pilot program in four American states in order to “refine the plan for the delivery and deployment” of the COVID-19 vaccine that the company is developing. President Donald Trump has even mentioned that the U.S. military would help to distribute a vaccine.

Mainstream media sources are promoting offensive suggestions by some doctors that people who refuse a vaccine for COVID-19 should be "punished" by the government and by business - effectively coercing them into taking the vaccine.
- One group of doctors writing in 'USA Today' suggested that the government impose special taxes (i.e., fines) on people who refuse the vaccination and that business simply refuse to serve them. [see story below]
- Another doctor writing in an online publication called 'The Conversation' shamelessly suggested that people who refuse a vaccine should be given a psychoactive drug to induce compliance. [see story below]
But, these suggestions are plain political posturing, and have nothing to do with science or with the recent trends of the disease.
And, in case they haven't noticed, we live in a democracy not a medical dictatorship!
Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks policy-makers and business people, at all levels, to pledge to respect the rights of those who, in good conscience, decide not to vaccinate themselves or their children.
People should not have to live in fear of governmental or corporate retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It would be intolerable and immoral for the government or business to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will to avoid a fine, or just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping.
Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.
So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished for refusing a vaccine.
Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.
Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.
We can no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question, especially now that, statistically speaking, the initial brunt of the COVID crisis has passed.
Neither can we accept the dictates of doctors who seem detached from reality and from science, and who only seem to be attached to the idea of promoting ideas which contribute to the agrandizement of power and control of political interests, and wealth of those who stand to make a lot of money from the sale of a COVID vaccine.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks government and business leaders to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and not seek to punish them for doing so.

In all his interviews, Slaoui dealt with questions regarding the safety of the vaccine, claiming that “this vaccine will be as safe as all the other vaccines that are being used in the population.”
However, he also re-iterated that he was completely unable to give any idea of the long-term safety: “what we are lacking is the long-term safety, just because it’s a fact; we can’t follow up for too long on these vaccines while one to two thousand people die every day.”
Despite Slaoui’s television testimony regarding the safety of the two proposed vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna, reports are emerging that the Pfizer vaccine is in fact having “severe” side effects upon this involved in the trials. Pfizer’s claim that the vaccine is over 90% effective, was also not substantiated through a peer review, but simply announced in a press release.
Pfizer’s statement mentioned 43,538 participants in its trials, but only 94 of those were confirmed as having COVID-19. LifeSiteNews has previously noted that as only 94 participants tested positive, it also appears difficult to generalize the vaccine is “more than 90% effective,” since some people might have been exposed to the virus more frequently, or for a longer time.
Continuing, Slaoui commented on reluctance to take such a vaccine: “I’m very, very concerned about the hesitancy [to receive a vaccine] as it exists, and I think it's very unfortunate because this has been exacerbated by the political context under which we have worked very hard…to make these vaccines available.”
“The vaccines have been developed as thoroughly and as scientifically as ever,” he added.
Slaoui attempted to persuade people to take the vaccine, despite the lack of evidence regarding potential long-term health impacts: “I would really urge people to listen to the experts, look at the data, keep their mind open, and hopefully accept to be immunized.”
One such expert is Dr. Michael Yeadon, the former Vice President and Chief Scientist of Pfizer. In recent writings and interviews, Yeadon slated the widespread push for universal vaccination, calling it “unnecessary.”
“There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I’ve never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines,” Yeadon said. “You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease. You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.”
Interestingly, the public trust of the produced vaccineshas actually fallen dramatically over the course of the year. Whilst in January, 69% of people surveyed were comfortable with a vaccine, in October that number was only 47%.
The figure is mirrored in a Gallup Poll, which found that 42% of people would reject a coronavirus vaccine.
Dr. Helen Watt of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre in Oxford, England, told the Catholic Herald that the Pfizer vaccine “makes no use of a foetal cell-line in the production process itself, and no use in the design,” but that “[o]ne of the confirmatory lab tests on the vaccine did sadly involve an old foetal cell-line.” The Children of God for Life organization says that the Pfizer vaccine is tested using the HEK 293 cell line, which is derived from kidney tissue taken from a healthy baby who was aborted in the Netherlands in the 1970s.
Children of God for Life also says that the Moderna vaccine has been tested on a cell line of an aborted child.
