(RepublicanNews.org) – Under President Trump’s decisive leadership, Operation Warp Speed successfully accelerated the vaccine development process. As a result, it delivered 300 million doses of what it called “safe and effective” vaccines by January 1, 2021. However, controversy continues to surround the rapid development and use of COVID-19 inoculations.
Dr. Robert W. Malone, MD, MS, the discoverer of in-vivo and in-vitro RNA transfection and the inventor of messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines, is speaking out after the Google-owned company YouTube removed a video of him discussing the risks associated with COVID-19 inoculations.
Dr. Malone talked about those concerns with Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday, June 23. Carlson pointed out that as the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Dr. Malone is the “single most qualified” expert on those currently authorized for use in the United States.
Two of the three vaccines approved for emergency use and recommended by the CDC are mRNA vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. The third, produced by Johnson & Johnson/Janssen, is a viral vector variety.
Dr. Malone’s Concerns
Dr. Malone expressed concern that the government lacked transparency when discussing the risk factors associated with the COVID-19 vaccines. He said he believed people have a right to access the data surrounding them to make informed decisions regarding whether to get them or not.
Like the doctor explained, the need for information is vital considering the fact the COVID-19 vaccines are “experimental” to the extent they are being administered through an Emergency Use Authorization and have yet to receive formal approval.
A variety of other concerns surround the use of COVID-19 vaccines. Some experts like Dr. Malone believe people under the age of 18 probably shouldn’t get one. There are also serious questions regarding the possible side effects. For example, the CDC website mentions the “plausible causal relationship” between the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine and the development of blood clots, and some experts report incidents of myocarditis in young people.
There are also concerns regarding the use of vaccination passports. Many Republican-led states like Florida have banned their use, and Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis recently won a court case blocking CDC rules requiring cruise ships to verify the status of all crew members and guests.
