PhD’s are the most vaccine hesitant followed by people who have less than a high school degree because they know what they don’t know & don’t trust government.
Hello, my name is Dr Christina Parks. I received my PhD in cellular and molecular biology right here in the state of Michigan, from University of Michigan Medical school, so I’m very well versed in the science of both these M-rna gene therapy vaccines, in this kind of technology as well as what a vaccine is designed to do in the body and what it can do and what it can’t do.
The fact is that this extremely complex science has been oversimplified in the media to basically take away our freedom of choice. What I want to address, today in this limited time, is the fact that vaccine requirements and mandates are based on the faulty assumption that the vaccines in question prevent transmission of the pathogen. Right! Does the vaccine for D-tap prevent transmission? No. Does the vaccine for flu prevent transmission? No. Do the vaccines for covid prevent transmission? No.
In fact, they were never designed to do that.
You’re asking what about this 95 effectiveness if you look at those clinical trials they do not say that they prevent transmission they expressly say that they’re measuring whether the vaccines attenuate symptoms.
They’re 95 percent effective based on their clinical trials at attenuating symptoms for the first variant which is essentially gone in our population. Right now the predominant variant is the delta and CDC director Wilinsky basically said that these vaccines have no ability to prevent infection with and transmission of the delta variant.
Our policy needs not to be built on the hope of what we think something we want it to do but what the data actually tell us. Do these vaccines prevent the virus from infecting and replicating in the nose and nasopharynx? No, they’ve only been shown to prevent that replication in the lungs. The nasal & nasopharyngeal mucosa is very different than the lungs. It’s very different than the blood. You inject the vaccine into the blood you make antibodies in your blood. The virus isn’t infecting your blood it’s infecting your mucosa and you don’t produce any IGA to neutralize it.
In fact, recent studies have shown that the vaccinated especially with the delta variant and the unvaccinated have similar amounts of virus in their nose and throat. In Barnstable, Massachusetts the CDC tracked an outbreak of 469 cases of Covid. 74% cases occurred in fully vaccinated persons, and 4 out of five of those hospitalized were vaccinated. Maybe they are mandating the vaccinations because they just didn’t know the facts about Covid. So, my main complaint is with our health agencies in the CDC who basically know better and are misleading the public.
Let’s look at D-tap, the scientists in the CDC have known since 2014 that the acellular pertussis vaccine does not prevent people from getting infected with the pertussis bacteria and passing it to others. In fact it was never designed to do that. The vaccine was designed to neutralize the pertussis toxin. Pertussis, we know it as whooping cough, can be fatal for children under six months so neutralizing this toxin saves lives. I’m not going to debate that but what it doesn’t do is neutralize the bacteria. What happens is fully vaccinated children go to daycare they pick up that bacteria and they come home and they give it to their newborn brother or sister they get deathly ill and they go to the hospital. Hopefully our medical professionals are able to save them but who do they blame.
Now the CDC is blaming anti-vaxers for the limitations of this vaccine design. I suggest that they be transparent and tell parents that although D-tap is preventing severe disease in their children it is not preventing transmission. We have created a whole class of asymptomatic pertussis carriers who are increasing the disease. Now the old D-tp vaccine that many of you who are my age or older got did prevent transmission When we switched to the safer acellular version they knew that it was never designed to prevent transmission. It was safer it had less adverse effects but pertussis cases have gone through the roof; there’s a resurgence in pertussis because of the design of the vaccine and the “vaccinologists” know this, they’re trying to address it.
We cannot mandate that something that does not prevent transmission. What about the flu vaccine? They have shown there’s no statistical difference if you’re vaccinated or unvaccinated in whether you get the flu or not. It’s even worse because although that first year it is somewhat effective, it’s about 65 percent effective at preventing symptoms, after that it actually has negative efficacy.
I want to address this because it’s very important. Vaccines are made to a specific variant and when that variant mutates the vaccine no longer recognizes it so it’s like you’re seeing a completely new virus. Because of that you actually get more severe symptoms when you’re vaccinated against one variant, then it mutates and your body sees the other variant. There’s the potential with COVID variants. The science shows that, in fact with the flu, if you get vaccinated in multiple years you are more likely to get severe disease, you are more likely to have more viral replication and you are more likely to be hospitalized both in adults and in children. We are seeing the same thing in covid with the delta variant. We are mandating that people get a vaccine that could actually make them more sick when they’re exposed to the virus. In fact this week a paper came out and showed that, with this delta variant, when you’re vaccinated your body makes antibodies that were supposed to neutralize the old variant of the virus. When the antibodies see this new variant, the vaccine generated antibodies are taking the virus and helping it infect the cells. That science was just published this week. We need to be looking at the science and we need our policy to reflect the science and we also need it to reflect our rights.
As a PhD who knows the science, I’m in the category of the most vaccine hesitant group. Yes, PhD’s are the most vaccine hesitant followed by people who have less than a high school degree because they know what they don’t know and they don’t trust their government and many people the other group that is very vaccine hesitant are African Americans.
70% of African Americans have not taken this vaccine. Why? Because they don’t trust their government. Do they have reason not to trust their government? Well between the years of 1930 – 1970 the CDC conducted the Tuskegee experiment where they took untreated males with syphilis and they refused to treat them. Even after antibiotics became available, they still did not treat them and they did not tell them that they had syphilis. They told those people that they were there to secure their health and they did not secure their health. They abused them. You say that was in the past although i don’t think 1970 was that long ago. While in 2012 whistleblower William Thompson came forward and said “We published a study that said MMR. does not cause autism but we lied. In fact we shredded data that showed that when black boys are vaccinated on time they have increased rates of autism diagnosis. We shredded it and we left it out of the paper. As an African American and a PhD I want to ask each of you are we going to exclude 70% of African American people from the workforce and from education?
I come up from a family that worked very hard and I’m very aware that my privileges are dependent on the work of my grandmother and my great-grandmother. I have great respect for these people that put me where I am and yet you’re telling me that my son will not be able to be educated if, based on the history of African Americans in this country, he doesn’t want to be vaccinated. I will leave you with that question: who are we going to exclude from the workforce? Are we going to continue with discrimination and segregation in the United States of America? Thank you
