Miss a day, miss a lot. Subscribe to The Defender's Top News of the Day. It's free.

This week, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president, and Polly Tommey, co-producer of “Vaxxed,” cover the latest COVID headlines, including news that Pennsylvania State University is encouraging students and employees to share their COVID vaccine status, a critical study that asks if vaccinated children are healthier overall than unvaccinated children, and how 899 New Yorkers were given expired COVID vaccines.

Mary and Polly also discuss how some New Yorkers are being given a third COVID shot after receiving an expired vaccine, news that hundreds of healthcare workers in Indonesia got COVID despite being fully vaccinated and updated guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) stating children should not be given COVID vaccines. (One day after The Defender reported on the updated guidance, the WHO removed the statement about not vaccinating children under 18. Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the WHO website page as it was before it was updated and how it looks now. The red hairline box was added to highlight the sentence that was removed.)

Here are more of this week’s highlights:

  • Four thousand women in Britain reported problems with their period after receiving the COVID vaccine. Mary said, “This is the mainstream media bringing out really important points about vaccine injury.”
  • More people in Australia have died from AstraZeneca-related blood clots than from COVID.
  • A Canadian politician and three doctors condemned censorship of scientific inquiry and suppression of information on vaccine risks to kids. Canadian Parliament member Derek Sloan said at a press conference the job of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario “is to protect the public, not stifle legitimate scientific inquiry or dissent by professional doctors.”
  • According to a new poll, 46% of Americans who are unvaccinated say they will definitely not get the COVID vaccine.
  • Kroger is giving away $1 million prizes in an effort to get more Americans vaccinated for COVID.
  • Georgia state officials are planning community vaccination events to boost the state’s lagging COVID vaccination rate.
  • Bloomsbury, the Harry Potter publisher, is forcing all staff to get the COVID vaccine in order to return to the office. Mary said, “They took a poll of 2,000 workers. I don’t think fundamental rights should be subject to a poll.”
  • Researchers in Germany reported substantial amounts of human and viral proteins in AstraZeneca’s COVID vaccine. “They’re letting people know these impurities are real,” said Mary. “They don’t know what the long-term effects are.”
  • Unvaccinated cadets at West Point military academy are getting bullied and punished, their families say. Those not vaccinated are being called “diseased” and “dirty” and treated as outcasts.
  • The EU now recommends lifting restrictions for American travelers regardless of vaccine status.
  • Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte is threatening to throw people in jail if they decline the COVID vaccine. Mary said, “Jailing 68 million people doesn’t sound like a real option.”
  • The first-ever postmortem study of a patient vaccinated against COVID revealed viral RNA in every organ of the patient’s body, meaning the vaccine is either ineffective or the coronavirus actually spreads faster in vaccinated individuals. Mary said, “This bombshell scientific evidence that the vaccine does more harm than good.”
  • Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order prohibiting public universities and community colleges from requiring students to get COVID vaccines or show proof of vaccination to attend class.

Mary will speak at the Freedom Symposium (July 3 – 4) at Old Town Hall in Philadelphia.
