WASHINGTON, D.C., December17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Vice President Mike Pence will receive the Pfizer/BioNTech developed COVID-19 vaccine on Friday. The event is set to be broadcast live, with the vice president being accompanied by his wife, Second Lady Karen Pence, who will also receive the vaccine. 

The White House released a statement yesterday, announcing the news of Pence’s public vaccination. According to the White House, the public nature of the event is “to promote the safety and efficacy of the vaccine and build confidence among the American people.” 

But President Trump will not be amongst the first to receive the vaccine, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany revealed. When asked whether Trump would receive the vaccine publicly, McEnany said that he “has said he is absolutely open to taking the vaccine.  He’s been emphatic about that to me privately and to you all publicly.” She added that “he did recently recover from COVID.  He has the continued protective effects of the monoclonal antibody cocktail that I mentioned, and he will receive the vaccine as soon as his medical team determines it’s best.”

Reuters reports that the Biden-Harris transition team has said Joe Biden will receive the vaccine publicly next week.

The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine was only approved for use in the U.S. last week. An FDA advisory panel recommended the vaccine for what is called “emergency use authorization” (EUA). The FDA noted that an EUA is “different than an FDA approval (licensure) of a vaccine” for use in the U.S., but that they expect “manufacturers whose COVID-19 vaccines are authorized under an EUA to continue their clinical trials to obtain additional safety and effectiveness information and pursue approval (licensure).” 

The rollout of the abortion-tainted Pfizer vaccine, which Pence, an Evangelical Christian, is poised to take, has already proved troublesome, in both the U.S. and overseas. On the first day of Britain’s vaccination program, two healthcare workers “responded adversely” after receiving the jab, according to NHS England, the country’s nationalised healthcare provider. 

The Medicine and Health products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), who originally authorised the vaccine for “temporary supply,” quickly adjusted their advisory on the vaccine following the news of adverse reactions to include a disclaimer that “[a]ny person with a history of immediate-onset anaphylaxis to a vaccine, medicine or food should not receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. A second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine should not be given to those who have experienced anaphylaxis to the first dose of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccination.”

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.

Strangely, two healthcare workers in the U.S. have also experienced adverse reactions to the same Pfizer vaccine. Both workers experienced painful symptoms, including shortness of breath and light-headedness, with one of them remaining hospitalized until at least Thursday. Hearing of the adverse reactions, an adviser to the FDA who recommended the vaccine, Dr. Paul Offit, has said: “I don’t think this means we should pause” the vaccination program.

However, a number of vaccine experts have come out against the vaccination programs currently being rolled out. Dr. Mike Yeadon, the former vice president and chief scientist of Pfizer, has emphaticallystated his opposition to rush any vaccine production, raising concerns over safety and the necessity of developing a vaccine at such speed:“There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I’ve never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines.” 

The scientist added that “[y]ou 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.”
