I have received many calls in the past month regarding the mRNA vaccines. I am as perplexed as you may be in this decision (unless you have already made that choice).
Below is a short excerpt of a recording from a recent podcast between Fareed Zakaria and Walter Isaacson* (CEO of CNN) on the function of the mRNA and the possible future of modern medicine. It’s very thought provoking and may give you a better understanding of this vaccine and its applications.
As consumers of modern medicine, do we have a say in this matter? Will this be mandated? How safe is it? What are some ethical concerns… As much as it is exciting to unfold the layers of nature to conquer diseases, I worry that we may be doing more harm by disruption the ecological balance of nature and creating superbugs!
There are no right or wrong answers… just questions.
Here is the list of the ingredients in each of the vaccines. Please inform the clinician if you are sensitive or allergic to any of these ingredients listed here:
CDC Is Monitoring Reports of Severe Allergic Reactions
If someone has a severe allergic reaction after getting vaccinated, their vaccination provider will send a report to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). VAERS is a national system that collects reports from healthcare professionals, vaccine manufacturers, and the public about adverse events that happen after vaccination.
Reports of adverse events that are unexpected, appear to happen more often than expected, or have unusual patterns are followed up with specific studies.
