  1. I am going out on a limb and saying that these jabs are nightmares… and one of the biggest medical fails in history!
    And sincerely… how could they know if jabs have saved people from getting a worse case?? It can't be proven.

  2. I agree with the esteemed Doctors, it is personal decision with your doctor. Coercing people to be vaccinated seems unnecessary now, the only risk is theirs. Let’s be considerate of everyone’s personal liberty.

  3. The look on Dr Gigi’s face whilst Dr Jay talks his BS says it all. Thank you for speaking the TRUTH Dr Gigi, you have no idea how good it feels to finally hear the Truth coming out, all be it Far too slow ..I am 59 years old and not jabbed. It has come between some family members and myself. Could not cross the border to be with my dying mother interstate…It has been a very sad journey. The information I have found, has me so sceptical of the FDA, Pfizer and the like to the point that I will never have another vaccine again and wish my children would research thoroughly before giving their babies any vaccines..The dots have been joining since 2019 at the very least. Heads MUST roll

  4. Liars the woman of pfizer said no scientific tests were do it is late now to say this after they OBLIGEDCpeople to get vaccinated to AVOID TRANSMISSION AND PROTECT OTHERS / they are twisting what they said NOW they are trying to SELL u can get infected with the vaxs corrupted thieves sobs

  5. Myself, and most of my family decided AGAINST getting the Covid vaccine. None of us got covid, and if we had been vaccinated those vaccines wouldn't still be effective. We did use face masks with respirators, used hand sanitizers, and limited all contact with others. I feel much better now knowing I won't have to worry about any unforeseen side effects from the vaccine now or in the future. I'm not anti-vax but I do make sure anything being injected into my body has a full and complete history of safety, and that goes for all pharmaceuticals. Just do some research at the many times the chemical and pharmaceutical industries (Sometime they are one and the same) have killed people and went to great lengths to cover it all up. They are out for the mighty dollar and aren't at all interested in my long term health…as a matter of fact they would prefer I, and everyone would be unhealthy so they can sell us more of their drugs. It's the most documented corrupt system that uses money and power to hide the evidence. When it comes to MY LIFE and MY HEALTH NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY will tell me what to do. Luckily, I don't succumb to peer pressure because I don't consider sheep my peers!

  6. F_CK THAT ! CHEWING STALE TURDS .. B.illGaytesJohnsHopkinU.klausSchwab RAN THE 1RST

  7. Some call it the clot shot which doesn't seem so unreasonable seeing the many adverse effects. If that is true why give it to old people? Do they not expect adverse effects in old people?

  8. August 2021: coerced by my employer to get second mRNA vaccine, or lose my job. September 2021: was put on metoprolol for high blood pressure and high heart rate which surfaced after second moderna jab. October 2022: still need the beta blockers or else my heart rate and BP shoot up. Yet there is nobody to talk to about this. I am male and now 32 years old.

  9. He mentions that the vaccine is 95% effective. It is my understanding that is relative risk reduction. You are only looking at the number in the trial group that got infected. That is small relative to the entire group. The more clinically significant absolute risk reduction should be the metric to determine efficacy, which takes into account the entire trial group. Looking at the absolute risk reduction for the Pfizer vaccine, it is under 1%. The vaccines have no efficacy and are dangerous, a good reason for every demographic not to take it. Plus, how can they make any accurate determination of anything from a three month clinical study? Something as novel and complex, and thus potentially disastrous, should have something in the order of a 20 year trial.

  10. I would really like to hear more doctors suggesting that people work on their comorbidities. If people would cut way back on processed foods, sugar & junk food, exercise more, quit smoking, & lower stress we'd definitely see things improve.

  11. Why would they think the vaccine was preventive in the first place? It just prepares the immune system. I'm sure they knew this. These government officials that placed these mandates should be held liable for the pain and suffering they caused to people!
