COVID-19 vaccine mandates “have to be repealed” as the vaccines are “still in research” and “people cannot be mandated to participate in research,” says Dr. Peter McCullough.
McCullough, a cardiologist, epidemiologist, and internist who manages COVID-19 patients with heart-related complications and patients who become ill after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, contends that COVID-19 vaccine mandates violate the Nuremberg Code.
“When it comes to research, research can only be voluntary. And under no circumstances can anyone receive any pressure, coercion, or threat of reprisal—cannot. It violates the cornerstone of ethics; it’s unethical, it’s immoral to do that,” he says.
McCullough notes that the CDC and FDA have yet to publish “their first monthly safety report” on the vaccines, and that as of Dec. 17, the CDC’s VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) has reported 20,622 deaths post-vaccination and over 983,000 adverse events.
COVID-19 vaccines commonly used in the United States use genetic mechanisms to install genetic material into cells, and then the cells produce the spike protein of the virus, says McCullough. “That’s the mechanism of the spike protein, it’s the dangerous and lethal part of the virus.”
The “uncontrolled quantity and duration of spike protein” produced by the vaccine in the human body “almost certainly is the proximate cause of death,” according to McCullough.
McCullough said that the data satisfy all five of the Bradford Hill criteria, a framework scientists use to work out whether one thing is causing another. In this case, because COVID-19 vaccination data satisfies the Bradford Hill principles, McCullough says that reported deaths are highly likely caused by COVID-19 vaccinations.
McCullough also mentioned the “non-fatal events that just go right along” with COVID-19 deaths which makes it more plausible that the vaccines are causing adverse reactions and in turn, deaths.
The FDA has asked a judge to grant it 75 years to fully release the documents in its possession tied to the approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
CDC Spokesperson Curtis Gill told the Epoch Times on Jan. 4: “To date, CDC has not detected any unusual or unexpected patterns for deaths following immunization that would indicate that COVID vaccines are causing or contributing to deaths, outside of the 9 confirmed deaths following the Janssen vaccine. These 9 deaths were the result of complications of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), which is a rare and serious adverse reaction following the J & J Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.”
