Texans for Vaccine Choice is excited by the scientific and medical advancements that have been made in an effort to combat the COVID-19 outbreak. The emergence of effective therapies and treatments brings hope and reassurance during what has been a trying and uncertain time. These advancements have brought with them a heightened public awareness of the complicated ethical questions that present themselves when dealing with the fast-tracked testing and approval of a new treatment or vaccine & the policies surrounding its eventual use. Public concern over the issues of loss of personal liberty and conflicts of interest among major players in public health is rising, as is the loss of trust in government regulatory agencies and policy makers - feelings of fear and doubt inevitably follow. At TFVC, we strongly believe in FACTS OVER FEAR! The antidote for uncertainty and fear is factual information upon which to base action and opinion. As such, we have compiled a list of resources for you below - from news articles featuring leading expert opinion to the latest on treatment and vaccine development and more. We will add to this list often (newest additions will be at the top), so check back regularly. You can click the title of each article to share on social media. As always, we stand with you ready to protect and advance informed consent, medical privacy, and vaccine choice. *CLICK HERE for COVID-19 information from the Department of State Health Services. *CLICK HERE for up-to-date COVID-19 case and fatality counts from the Department of State Health Services. *CLICK HERE for testing locations, information on assistance programs, and disaster relief volunteer information

Non-inert placebo for COVID-19 vaccine phase I/II trial

Best way to ensure your COVID-19 vaccine sails through safety trials? Don’t give your “placebo” group an inert saline injection — give them a meningitis vaccine instead!

You know you’re doing stellar science when your exclusion criteria has to list those who have previously had an adverse reaction to your placebo. You know, that thing that’s not supposed to produce any kind of reaction. 🙄

Other interesting exclusion criteria: “Living in the same household as any vulnerable groups at risk of severe COVID-19 disease.” Couldn’t possibly be because there’s a risk of the vaccinated spreading coronavirus to everyone they come in contact with, right?

More coronavirus patients testing positive again after recovery: report

By John Bowden – The Hill
April 9

“‘Once you have the infection, it could remain dormant with minimal symptoms,’ New York University microbiology and pathology professor Philip Tierno Jr. told Reuters. ‘And then you can get an exacerbation if it finds its way into the lungs.’

For similar reasons, one of the doctors who told NPR they experienced a second positive coronavirus test after a recovery questioned China’s decision to not include asymptomatic carriers in its official case count. China is also not counting new cases found in people who previously had the virus in its official count, NPR noted.

‘I have no idea why the authorities choose not to count [asymptomatic] cases in the official case count. I am baffled,’ the doctor reportedly said.”

Gates and Fauci: Unelected destroyers of freedom

By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times 
Saturday, April 11, 2020

“Now comes Fauci with this, as reported by Politico: ‘Coronavirus immunity cards for Americans are ‘being discussed.’

Immunity cards — already implemented in Germany; currently being discussed in the United Kingdom and Italy — are identification documents to prove vaccination. They’re quite popular, it seems, in communist China.

Show me your papers or stay quarantined! Is that the direction America’s headed?

‘I mean, it’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not,’ Fauci said, Politico reported.

The vulnerable people? Fauci means those at risk from coronavirus.

But the real vulnerable people here are free Americans.

The real vulnerable are all the freedom-loving Americans watching with dismay as their free America is destroyed by the likes of unelected wonks — unelected, unaccountable to the people, and apparently, unconcerned at all with the God-given rights of constitutionally protected individuals.”

Cuomo offers up New York as a coronavirus vaccine ‘laboratory’

By Bernadette Hogan and Aaron Feis – New York Post
April 15

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo: “We want to use New York as a laboratory. We are ready, willing, in any way. Do you need a place to test it in large numbers?” he asked rhetorically of the feds. “Think of New York.”

“The governor offered up his constituents as lab rats as the contagion continued to level off in the Empire State, slowly and painfully.”

AG Barr ‘very concerned’ about ‘personal liberty’ after Gates proposes digital vaccine certificates

By Martin Bürger Life Site News
April 9

“Following Bill Gates’ proposal for ‘digital certificates’ proving a person has been vaccinated against the coronavirus, Attorney General William Barr said he was ‘very concerned about the slippery slope in terms of continuing encroachments on personal liberty.’

Barr added he was concerned about ‘the tracking of people and so forth, generally, especially going forward over a long period of time.'”

Coronavirus Throws A Curveball: New Mutation Can Make Current Vaccine Research ‘Futile’: Study

By Rachel Cruise – International Business Times
April 14

“The unexpected structural change “raises the alarm that the ongoing vaccine development may become futile in future epidemic if more mutations were identified,” the experts wrote in their paper published on biorxiv.org.

But then:

“Immunology lecturer Jenna Macciochi, who works for the University of Sussex, also said that current vaccine developments are not necessarily affected by the discovered mutation.”

https://www.ibtimes.com/coronavirus-throws-curveball-new-mutation-can-make-current-vaccine-research-futile-2958659

Nice to see there’s so much consensus on the matter, seeing as how that vaccine is barreling down the pipeline and all.


Bill Gates: Indemnification From Lawsuits Needed In Order To Vaccinate The Global Population

By True Pundit Reporter – True Pundit
April 14

Gates says that to use his vaccine to vaccinate the entire population, manufacturers will need indemnification to be protected from liability lawsuits:

“That decision lets go and give this vaccine to the entire world, government will have to be involved, because there will be some risk and indemnification needed, before that can be decided on.”

https://truepundit.com/bill-gates-indemnification-from-lawsuits-needed-in-order-to-vaccinate-the-global-population

It’s so safe, he’s willing to bet YOUR life on it!

P.S. All of the vaccines currently on the CDC Childhood Vaccine Schedule enjoy this immunity from liability, so what do you think that means for us here in the US? It means you’re looking at your next addition to the childhood vaccine schedule!



“Bill Gates and His Coronavirus Conflicts of Interest”

By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times
April 2, 2020

“On March 11, one day after Business Insider reported how Gates had been pushing for a WHO declaration of pandemic on the coronavirus — one day after Gates announced the infusion of millions of dollars into a WHO-partnered venture called COVID-19 Therapeutics Accelerator, that dangled the prospect of putting more regulatory powers into the hands of the global elitists — one day after that, WHO’s director-general made an interesting announcement.

On March 11, at a press conference on the coronavirus, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said this: ‘We have therefore made the assessment that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic.’

Coincidence?

Perhaps.

But there’s a lot of money and power and influence to be made with this coincidence.”

“Meet the world’s most powerful doctor: Bill Gates”

By Natalie Huet and Carmen Paun – Politico
May 4, 2017

To be clear: Bill Gates is not a doctor. He is not a scientist. Yet he influences world health policy?

“Over the past decade, the world’s richest man has become the World Health Organization’s second biggest donor, second only to the United States and just above the United Kingdom.

The result, say his critics, is that Gates’ priorities have become the WHO’s. Rather than focusing on strengthening health care in poor countries — that would help, in their view, to contain future outbreaks like the Ebola epidemic — the agency spends a disproportionate amount of its resources on projects with the measurable outcomes Gates prefers…

Few people dare to openly criticize what he does. Most of 16 people interviewed on the topic would only do so on the condition of anonymity.

But the foundation’s focus on delivering vaccines and medicines, rather than on building resilient health systems, has drawn criticism. And some NGOs worry it may be too close to industry.”

Resist: Senator Wetangu’la calls on African leaders to reject COVID-19 vaccine test on continent”

By Masolo Mabonga – Tuko
April 6, 2020

“The epicenter of COVID-19(Coronavirus ) is China, Italy, Spain, France, US. Clinical trials on its possible cure must start there and not in any African country. African leaders must resist any attempt to use our people as Guinea pigs. Resist,” [Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangu’la] tweeted.”

Sadly, exploitation of underdeveloped populations in the name of vaccine development is nothing new.


“Anthony Fauci sets stage for mandatory — lucrative! — vaccine”

By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times
April 8, 2020

“Anthony Fauci has just warned what cooler-head coronavirus watchers have suspected all along: that this country may never, no never, go back to normal.

Never, that is, Fauci suggested, until a vaccine is developed. And by logical extension, that’s to say — never, until a vaccine is developed that must then be included on the required list of shots for all children to attend school.

What great news for Big Pharma.”

“Two top French doctors said on live TV that coronavirus vaccines should be tested on poor Africans, leaving viewers horrified”

By Julian Kossoff – Business Insider
April 3, 2020

“A discussion between two top French doctors on live TV left viewers horrified when they proposed that Africa should become a giant laboratory for coronavirus vaccine testing because the continent lacked the resources to defend against COVID-19.

One of them, Jean-Paul Mira, even compared Africans to prostitutes who were the focus of past AIDS studies. “We tried things on prostitutes because they are highly exposed and do not protect themselves,” he said.”

Appalled? You should be. You should probably also know human rights violations and exploitation of underdeveloped populations in the name of vaccine development are nothing new. #philosophicalexemption


“New evidence shows CDC knew since at least 2005 that chloroquine is effective against coronaviruses”

By TechStartups Team – Tech Startups
March 20, 2020

“…a new unearthed paper published in 2005 and shared with CDC, found that ‘Chloroquine is effective in preventing the spread of SARS CoV in cell culture.’

So, the question is, if the CDC and FDA have been aware of the efficacy of chloroquine in treating coronavirus since at least 2005, why hasn’t the FDA collaborated with other organizations and fast tracked the use of chroloroquine and its sister drug, hydroxychloroquine and save thousands of lives? And why hasn’t chloroquine been mass produced and made available sooner?”

We’ve got a pretty good guess: AGENDA.

“Coronavirus Could Infect Privacy And Civil Liberties Forever”

By Simon Chandler – Forbes
March 23, 2020

“Perhaps health is more important than privacy and civil liberties. Obviously, you’d have absolutely no civil liberties, freedoms, or powers if you were deceased.

However, the surveillance measures now being imposed on national populations risk permanently altering how much privacy and freedom we have as individuals.

And at this early stage in the life of the coronavirus, it’s not clear or transparent that the health benefits they provide (as opposed to isolation and testing policies on their own) outweigh the price we’d have to pay in terms of civil liberties.”

“Want a Coronavirus Vaccine, Fast? Here’s a Solution”

By Daniel Hemel and Lisa Larrimore Ouelette – Time
March 4, 2020

To overcome COVID-19 vaccine funding challenges, this article advocates for the use of “challenge prizes” – where governments or foundations offer a cash prize for the development of a successful vaccine.

“The next natural target for a challenge prize is a safe vaccine that is effective in preventing COVID-19. Some of the specifics still need to be worked out—how safe is “safe,” how effective is “effective”—but those are the sorts of specifics that a prize committee can adjudicate.”

Don’t fret, y’all! In this scenario, the definition of safety for your COVID-19 vaccine could be determined by the prize committee!! Doesn’t that sound exciting??

“Implementing a coronavirus vaccine prize will also require a number of design choices. For example, to encourage dissemination, we suggest that payments be tied to the number of patients vaccinated—an approach that has succeeded in the case of the pneumococcal vaccine.”

And, look! The consumer wins again as mandates are encouraged in order for prize money to be collected. What could possibly go wrong?

“To be sure, containing COVID-19 and saving lives are the most immediate objectives, but they are not the only goals. An outbreak, one might say, is a terrible thing to waste.”

Well. Isn’t that lovely.


“There’s no guarantee that a coronavirus vaccine will be affordable”

By Elisabeth Buchwald – Market Watch
March 2, 2020

“…it can cost $1 billion to fund the research and development of a new vaccine, according to a 2018 study published in Lancet, a peer-reviewed medical journal. On top of which, after months of testing, there is a 94% chance of failure, according to the authors of the study. Because of this, vaccine manufacturers often accept federal funding which allows the government to have a say in terms of pricing it.

So far, the government has pledged $1 billion for coronavirus vaccine research, Azar said.”

“Researchers fast-track coronavirus vaccine by skipping key animal testing first”

By Nicoletta Lanese – Live Science

“Outbreaks and national emergencies often create pressure to suspend rights, standards and/or normal rules of ethical conduct. OFTEN OUR DECISION TO DO SO SEEMS UNWISE IN RETROSPECT,” Jonathan Kimmelman, director of McGill University’s biomedical ethics unit, wrote in an email to Stat News.

https://www.livescience.com/amp/coronavirus-vaccine-trial-no-animal-testing.html

Despite the fact that “Prior animal studies of SARS vaccines showed seriously high mortality risk upon secondary exposure following vaccination,” fast-tracking of a COVID19 vaccine continues.

“Dangers of releasing vaccines without adequate testing: Top docs explain”

By Matt London – Fox News
March 17, 2020

“When you accelerate that process and you start cutting short on the amount of time you have for safety and efficacy testing because you want to prevent a pandemic, there’s always the risk that you’re going to wind up causing disease.” – Dr. Ian Lipkin, director of the Center for Infection & Immunity at Columbia University

“In fact, that’s what happened more than four decades ago, when the U.S. was struck by the Swine Flu.

President Ford went on national television and called for a mass inoculation of every man, woman and child in the United States. More than 40 million Americans rushed to get the shot they thought would save their lives.

“Unfortunately, there were individuals that had reactions to this vaccine,” said Adalja. “One reaction in particular was called Guillain-Barre syndrome, which is an autoimmune neurologic syndrome which causes weakness in your limbs and it can sometimes kill people.”

The Swine flu outbreak of 1976 never materialized into a full-blown epidemic, but 33 people did die from the vaccine that was created to protect them from the virus.”

Multiple warnings and urgings for caution from all areas of science and medicine where this new coronavirus vaccine is concerned. Will anyone listen, or will this end up another tragic tale for the history books?
