The following article was written by Nobel Prize Winner Luc Montagnier and constitutional lawyer Jed Rubenfield. It was published by the Wall Street Journal last January 9, 2022, days before the US Supreme Court issued its decision blocking President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for private businesseshttps://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/supreme-court-biden-osha-vaccine-mandate-decision-a-win-for-employees-employers-ashley-moody.
The article asserts that in the presence of Omicron, governments must re-evaluate their COVID policies, particularly those that mandate vaccination. Here are the reasons stated by the authors to support their arguments:
- Atleast in the US, 95% of COVID cases are now estimated to be of Omicron.
- The suspension of the right to refuse medical treatment as supported by the 1905 case of Jacobson v. Massachusetts rests on the need to prove that society needs it to curb the spread of a contagious epidemic. This then requires evidence that the vaccines can stop infection or transmission. Evidence shows that it can’t.
- Meanwhile, the World Health Organization said, “if mandatory vaccination is considered necessary to interrupt transmission chains and prevent harm to others, there should be sufficient evidence that the vaccine is efficacious in preventing serious infection and/or transmission”. For Omicron, data is showing that indeed, the disease is so mild that it would be best to just allow population to achieve natural immunity while at the same time protecting those who are most vulnerable [also read Omicron Variant have “Extremely Mild” Symptoms, Says Doctor Who First Reported It, Dr. Angelique Coetzee: “There is No Reason Why You Can’t Trust Us When We Say to You it’s Mild Disease!”].
- Vaccine efficacy declines against Omicron, and would even put vaccinated people more susceptible to infection [see Vaccinated people more vulnerable to Omicron infection, Vaccinated Individuals More Prone to COVID Infection with Beta, Gamma, and Delta Variants]. Even if boosters worked, the vaccine mandates only cover for two doses, leaving unboosted individuals at negative protection against Omicron.
Editor’s Note: With the recent ruling against vaccine mandates in the US, we think that this article is even more important for us in the Philippines, as we grapple with the increasing restrictions on the personal liberties of unvaccinated individuals.
The argumentation against vaccine mandates issued in this article are applicable to every other country that seeks to coerce its citizens to take the vaccines. The reality of negative efficacy is now supported by empirical data [see UK Government Data: Vaccinated are Seeing their Immune Response Plummet by About 5% Each Week, Covid-Injection Lowers Natural Immunity by five- to six-fold].
And even if the vaccine did not harm the immune system, evidence is showing that it is unnecessary given that there are now several ways to immunize the population – recovery from COVID, and recovery from common colds [see Mainstream Media Finally Acknowledge Cross-Immunity: T-cells from Common Colds can Provide Protection Against COVID, Thousands of Physicians and Scientists Reach Consensus: Natural Immunity Works, Children Do Not Need COVID Vaccination, Geert Vanden Boosche: Natural immunity, not vaccines, will create herd immunity, Pfizer Scientists Caught on Camera: Natural Immunity Better than Covid Injection].
Even if we assume that the vaccine could prevent deaths among the most vulnerable it is useless for a majority of people who are not at risk of the virus [see Updated IFR for COVID Confirms 99.9987% Survival for Under-20’s. Meanwhile, there is evidence showing that the vaccines cannot even protect the populations which need it, see AI Analysis from US Department of Defense shows vaccines lead to more severe disease for fully vaccinated elderly, Study shows COVID vaccines unable to protect vulnerable groups].
Even without talking about the serious damages caused by the COVID vaccines, these reasons alone, are enough to dismantle the legal basis for vaccine mandates.
