In a recent podcast, Joe Rogan was asked if young healthy people should get vaccinated and his response was, “If you’re a healthy person, and you’re exercising all the time, and you’re young, and you’re eating well, like, I don’t think you need to worry about this.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci was quick to go to the press and state that even the young and healthy should “absolutely” get vaccinated.
Given the speed of the clinical trials, Rogan has a point to his concern.
The average vaccine takes 10 to 15 years to develop and approve.
In the case of vaccines for COVID, the approved vaccines had development periods under a year and clinical trials that were run concurrently and lasting few months at best.
Johnson & Johnson ran their Phase 1 and 2 trials concurrently starting in July of 2020. By September, they launched their Phase 3 trial. The vaccine was approved in February of 2021.
In December of 2020, Moderna was given emergency use authorization by the FDA for their vaccine after four months of a Phase 3 trial.
Pfizer began concurrent Phase 2 and 3 trials in July of 2020. But on October 27th, the chief executive for Pfizer announced that the trials didn’t experience enough cases of COVID-19 to determine the vaccine’s efficacy. Just 13 days later, Pfizer released its preliminary analysis on their trials and claimed success. Pfizer was granted emergency use on December 11, 2020.
For all approved vaccines that have been injected into 232 million Americans, there is no long-term study on the effects of the drug.
Dr. Fauci was recently asked about the long-term side effects of the COVID vaccine and incorrectly stated, “If you look at the history of vaccines you know that virtually all long-term adverse effects of a vaccine occur between 15 and 30 days after you get the dose, 45 days at the most.”
In 1976, the Swine Flu Vaccine was linked to Guillain-Barre Syndrome and the effects were still being studied in 2003.
From 1955 to 1963 up to 30% of polio vaccines contained the Simian Virus 40 (SV40). Research done with SV40 in animals indicated a link to cancer. However, the CDC touts that studies could not fine no causal relationship between SV40 and cancer. In reality, studies conducted as recently as 2007 found the link inconclusive due to the difficulty in conducting a test and recommended molecular epidemiologic studies.
In 1955, there was also the “Cutter Incident” in which the polio vaccine was administered with the live virus, infecting over 250 people with polio.
The CDC lists ten incidents in their index of “Historical Vaccine Safety Concerns.”
Gulf War veterans may have a different take on government approved vaccines and medications as a quarter million veterans suffered from Gulf War Syndrome which causes fatigue, inflammation and muscle pain among other symptoms.
During the Gulf War, members of the military were exposed to a variety of agents, from nerve gas antidotes to depleted uranium.
For years, Veterans Affairs refused to acknowledge the illness and today, the U.S. Government has not pinned down the cause or the cure.
Given the lack of study on the long-term impact of rushed COVID vaccines, Joe Rogan has a point that should be considered by the young and healthy.
Fauci can go back to waffling about whether or not to wear a mask.
