This week, Mary Holland Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president, and Polly Tommey, co-producer of “Vaxxed,” cover the latest COVID headlines, including news from vaccine expert John Campbell, Ph.D. who shares that when COVID vaccines are injected incorrectly into a blood vessel, instead of a muscle, it can lead to serious heart problems.

Mary and Polly also discuss the latest data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, which include a total of 778,685 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 16,310 deaths and 111,921 serious injuries.

Also on tap this week is The Defender’s exclusive interview with the husband and uncle of Jessica Berg Wilson. They told The Defender that Twitter censored the young mother’s obituary because it attributed her death to vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia caused by the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine.

Polly and Mary also discuss Project Veritas’ fourth video in its COVID vaccine investigative series that quotes two Pfizer scientists who said natural immunity is better than the vaccine, and its fifth video featuring an interview with Pfizer insider, Melissa Strickler. Strickler shared internal emails from corporate executives telling staff to be secretive about the use of human fetal tissue in laboratory testing of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine.

Here are more of this week’s highlights:

  • The authors of a study in the European Journal of Epidemiology Vaccines said the sole reliance on vaccination as a primary strategy to mitigate COVID-19 and its adverse consequences “needs to be re-examined.” “It is a very interesting article,” said Mary.
  • An investigation by Full Measure disproved claims by health officials that there are more COVID-19 deaths than have been reported. In fact, researchers found the opposite to be true: COVID deaths may have been overreported by as much as 500%.
  • Sweden will pause Moderna’s COVID vaccine for people under age 30, while Denmark said it will halt the use of Moderna’s vaccine in people under age 18.
  • Southwest Airlines pilots asked a court to temporarily block the company from carrying out federally mandated COVID vaccinations until an existing lawsuit over alleged U.S. labor law violations is resolved. “I think pilots have good reason to be very cautious about getting these vaccines,” said Mary. “This is certainly something to watch.”
  • Testing will no longer be an option in Canada, instead, proof of vaccination is the way forward for all over the age of 12. “This is a very troubling video,” said Mary.
  • In his latest video, John Campbell, Ph.D., compared ivermectin, whose use as a COVID treatment has been widely criticized by mainstream media, with Merck’s new COVID drug, Molnupiravir, which is the subject of glowing attention. The cost of Molnupiravir is significantly higher than ivermectin. “This is an extraordinary story,” said Mary.
  • Parents in the UK have served a ‘cease and desist’ legal notice on a school threatening to sue and potentially pursue charges, if children are given a COVID vaccination without parental consent. “I am pleased to see parents standing up for their children,” said Polly.
  • After the success of pilot immunization programs in Ghana, Kenya and Malawi, the World Health Organization says a malaria vaccine will be rolled out across sub-Saharan Africa and in other regions with moderate to high malaria transmission. This study shows the new malaria vaccine to be only 18 to 36% efficacious against clinical malaria.
  • According to a lawsuit filed last month by Baum Hedlund, Merck’s propaganda campaign played a role in convincing Hayden Shain, then 15, and his mother that he should get the Gardasil HPV vaccine. Once a promising swimmer and straight-A student, Hayden is now mostly bedbound. “This just tears your heart out,” said Mary.
  • Fake meats aren’t about your health or a healthy environment — they’re a tool to phase out farmers and ranchers and replace them with an ultra-processed food product that can be controlled by patents. “This is going to be our future if we don’t stop it,” said Polly.
  • Double your impact! Make a donation to CHD by midnight Oct. 31, and a generous benefactor will match your donation — and all donations — up to $1 million.
  • Pre-order Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s new book, “The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health.”
