This week, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense president, and Polly Tommey, co-producer of “Vaxxed,” cover the latest COVID headlines, including news that a federal judge last week rejected a bid by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Pfizer to delay the court-ordered release of nearly 400,000 pages of documents pertaining to the approval of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine.

They also discussed the shocking data released on the efficacy and safety of the Moderna COVID shots, plus news that the FDA relied on a critically flawed risk-benefit assessment to authorize emergency use of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 to 11 years old.

Also on tap this week: At a virtual meeting held the first day of the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda 2022, Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel and colleagues, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, detailed their plans for “vaccine mania” to persist indefinitely.

Here are more of this week’s highlights:

  • In an interview with Tessa Lena, Dr. Meryl Nass describes the circumstances leading up to her having her medical license temporarily suspended for spreading COVID “misinformation.” “She is a world-class expert on vaccines,” said Mary.
  • U.S. Army soldiers who refuse the COVID vaccine will soon be discharged, the military branch announced. “This is extraordinary,” said Mary. “This article is very interesting.”
  • A powerful Austrian court has issued a “please explain” requesting detailed data on hospitalizations, masks and vaccines to justify heavy-handed COVID rules. “This is my favorite story,” said Mary.
  • Denmark lifted all of its domestic COVID restrictions, including the wearing of face masks, making it the first EU country to do so. “This is important,” said Polly. “We must keep up with what’s going on.”
  • Sweden and Switzerland joined Denmark, Norway, Finland, Ireland, The Netherlands, Italy, Lithuania, France and the UK in announcing they will lift COVID restrictions and open up their countries.
  • The Novavax vaccine was found to be more than 90% effective against a variety of variants, including Delta, in a US trial last year, with data in December suggesting it could also fight against Omicron. “This is deception,” said Polly.
  • More than one in 10 school entry-age children in England are “at risk” of measles because they have not had their vaccines, data revealed. “This is predictable,” said Polly.
  • Germany’s expert panel on vaccine use is preparing to recommend a fourth COVID vaccine dose.
  • A new super-mutant HIV strain that makes infected individuals ill twice as fast as current versions of the virus has been detected.
  • In Canada, the police bodyguard of Trudeau resigned due to “utter tyranny.” “I was moved by this,” said Polly. “A very brave man. It’s worth watching,” said Mary.
  • Due to supply chain delays, the labor shortage and pandemic-related disruptions, food prices shot up by 9% in 2021, according to data from IRI, a Chicago-based market research firm.
  • Food testing reveals farmed salmon is one of the most toxic foods in the world, having more in common with junk food than health food. “Always buy wild-caught,” said Polly. “We have to be so careful with what’s not just in vaccines, but our food.”
  • The clinical trial for Pfizer vaccines failed in ages 6 months to 4 years. We have 14 days to stop the FDA from committing a crime against humanity. “Nothing justifies this,” said Mary. “Please join us to stop this.”
