This week, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense president, and Polly Tommey, co-producer of “Vaxxed,” cover the latest COVID headlines, including the latest Vaccine  Adverse Event Reporting System data showing a total of 1,103,893 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines.

They also discussed news that data is not clear whether three doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine will adequately protect young children. Plus, Pfizer said it will delay applying for Emergency Use Authorization of its COVID vaccine for infants and children 6 months to 4 years old.

Also on tap this week: On the latest episode of The Hill’s “Rising,” political commentator Kim Iversen broke down concerning new language in a U.S. Department of Homeland Security bulletin about domestic terrorism that could have potential ramifications for anyone questioning government institutions. Plus, Steve Kirsch shares his list, “The Disinformation Dozen,” of people he thinks should be investigated.

Here are more of this week’s highlights:

  • We may not yet be able to draw definitive conclusions from the data on the health of U.S. military members before and after the rollout of COVID vaccines, but this much is clear: We have a major issue with the overall health of our armed services, and the military either did — or should have — known this.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shared multiple tweets normalizing blood clots and heart disease in children.
  • Mary and Polly discussed this video covering booster shots, masks and COVID vaccines for young children. “It is awful for these kids,” said Mary.
  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval last week of Moderna’s Spikevax COVID vaccine — backed by the CDC — made a mockery of science and the regulatory process. “A very important article,” said Polly. “This is a fraud against the American people,” said Mary. “This is not science.”
  • Two court cases are poised to take on New York City’s COVID vaccine mandates that may leave up to 4,000 municipal workers and 700 educators without jobs. “We have many lawsuits we have filed in New York about these vaccine and mask mandates,” said Mary.
  • Truckers called for their fellow Canadian citizens to come to Ottawa, to thwart the violence planned by the government. “You really need to be listening to the people, not the press,” said Polly.
  • Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he’s invoking the Emergencies Act for the first time in Canada’s history to give the federal government temporary powers to handle ongoing blockades and protests against pandemic restrictions.
  • Trudeau vowed to freeze bank accounts of the truckers protesting his COVID vaccine mandates, while the movement’s fundraising website remained down. “This is very threatening,” said Mary. “This is very serious stuff.”

  • The European Medicines Agency’s safety committee said it was reviewing reports of heavy menstrual bleeding and the absence of menstruation from women who had received COVID vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna. “This is a really serious issue,” said Mary.
  • Sweden dismissed all of its few pandemic restrictions and stopped most testing for COVID.
  • Two people in England were diagnosed with Lassa Fever, a rare Ebola-like virus. “Something is happening,” said Polly.
  • The National Health Service (NHS) in England sends sheep to greet those getting their COVID vaccines. “They are going to endless lengths,” said Mary. “People don’t want this stuff.”
  • Attorneys general from 16 states, led by Louisiana, filed a new legal challenge to COVID vaccine mandates for U.S. healthcare workers claiming the mandates are illegal and obsolete, as the vaccines don’t work against Omicron, the dominant variant in the U.S. “This is great news,” said Mary. “Very excited about that.”
  • A peer-reviewed study published last month found the prophylactic use of ivermectin reduced COVID mortality by 90% among more than 223,000 study participants in a town in Southern Brazil.
  • A lawsuit filed against Bayer by the chemical giant’s own shareholders could lead to even more details about how Monsanto, now owned by Bayer, covered up the dirty truth about its flagship product, Roundup weedkiller. “Please educate yourselves,” said Polly.
  • In what may be the first such move by a city health department, members of the Pittsfield, Massachusetts Board of Health on Feb. 2 voted unanimously to issue a cease-and-desist order to Verizon if the company refuses to discuss removing or relocating a cell tower residents said is the source of multiple illnesses. “This is encouraging news that local groups can challenge this,” said Mary.
  • Researchers tested 259 bottles of 11 popular bottled water brands for the presence of microscopic plastic. On average, the bottled water contained 325 pieces of microplastic per liter, nearly twice what was found in tap water.
  • French virologist Luc Montagnier, who won a Nobel prize for his part in discovering the HIV virus that causes AIDS, has died. “A wonderful man,” said Polly. “A big loss for us all.”
