A coalition of over 20 public interest groups is calling on the federal government to publicly affirm the "material risks and scientific uncertainties" related to COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, presenting a letter signed by 19 doctors, scientists, and academics across the country.
“In our view, you have not, to date, properly informed Canadian citizens as to the material risks and scientific uncertainties related to the previously authorized lipid nanoparticle COVID-19 mRNA or adenoviral DNA vaccines,” said the letter, submitted by interest groups such as the B.C. Public Service Employees for Freedom, Police for Freedom, and the United Health Care Workers of Ontario (UHCWO).
According to the group, the scientific content included in the letter has been reviewed by 19 doctors, scientists, and academics across the country with specializations including medicine, epidemiology, and microbiology.
The letter included an appendix, titled “Proposed Government Safety Risk Statement on COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines,” which the group urged the minister and health officer to review and respond to.
‘Distinct' from Traditional VaccinesThe Safety Risk Statement asserts that COVID-19 vaccines "are distinct from traditional vaccine products" in the way they stimulate an immune response in a person’s body.
“All authorized COVID-19 mRNA vaccines work by instructing your cells to express a spike protein that is anchored to that cell. To stimulate an immune response, your immune system initially attacks, damages, and/or destroys that cell,” said the statement.
“Though the vaccine is administered in your arm, a certain portion of your vaccine (currently unknown) goes beyond your arm and distributes throughout your body, where it may be taken up into various tissues, including liver, spleen, adrenals, ovaries, heart and the brain. The extent of cell and/or tissue damage in your body, beyond your arm, may differ widely from person to person.”
The statement also said that Health Canada has no "conclusive data” to determine the extent to which a person may experience cell and tissue damage that may impact his or her health in the long term.
“It is possible that you may incur such damage without necessarily experiencing it as an adverse event related to the time of vaccination,” it said.
“Moreover, with each successive dose on this platform, the damage may be cumulative. Some types of cells—such as brain neurons and cardiac muscle cells—cannot be regenerated once they die.”
In an email to The Epoch Times on Oct. 24, one of the letter's signatories confirmed the group has not received a reply from Duclos and Tam to date.
“Unfortunately neither have responded. It was our hope to have these pressing issues addressed or at the very least open some dialogue,” said a spokesperson from UHCWO.
Booster CampaignThe federal government has been calling for an increase in the country’s booster shot uptake in recent months. On Sept. 1, Duclos announced that the government would implement a national campaign encouraging Canadians to receive booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The group told Duclos and Tam that if they opt to mandate COVID vaccination again this fall with measures that cause loss of employment, movement, and access to services and education, “we are entitled to seek any and all legal remedies against you ... both domestically and through international courts of law.”
