February 8, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Matt Hancock, the U.K. Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, stated in a press conference last week that COVID-19 vaccines will become seasonal, much like flu shots.
“For 40 years we have had a flu vaccination program, and every year the flu jab is updated to make sure it is as effective as possible against new variants. This is a standard part of what the NHS does every autumn to protect us against the flu,” Hancock said. Hancock suggested coronavirus vaccines will eventually take the “same place” as flu shots.
Many people believed a COVID-19 vaccine would be like other vaccines which are taken once for full immunity. However, new experimental COVID-19 vaccines apparently cannot offer permanent immunity. Salon reported back in September, “Some viruses, such as measles, confer lifelong immunity on those who have either contracted them or been vaccinated against them. Not so with coronavirus. The science suggests that coronavirus contraction (and thus likely vaccination, too) provides what is known as ‘transient’ immunity.”
As people line up to get the experimental COVID-19 vaccine in hopes of returning to life as it was before, they may not be aware that there is no guarantee that the vaccine will last beyond one season. It’s more likely that the virus will behave like viruses do and mutate, just like flu does year after year.
Similar reports are being echoed in the U.S.
“[H]ow long will that immunity last?” an NJ.com article asked. “The simple answer is we can’t be sure, and not just because the vaccine hasn’t been studied long-term. As new, more contagious strains of the coronavirus pop up around the world, there is a chance that it could evolve to render the current vaccine no longer effective, which would mean you would need to get another dose of the vaccine, formulated for a new strain, much like a flu shot.”

People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.
But, everyone should agree on this point:
No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.
Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms.
The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.
And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.
Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.
Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.
And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.
However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.
But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

We realize many have general concerns about vaccines, but also recognize that millions of lives have been saved due to vaccines.
