This week, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president, and Polly Tommey, CHD.TV programming manager, covered the latest headlines on COVID-19, Big Pharma and other issues, including news that shares of Moderna, BioNTech, and Novavax plunged as much as 9% after President Joe Biden said, “The pandemic is over” in an appearance on CBS’ “60 Minutes.”

Polly and Mary also discussed that the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledged publicly for the first time that the agency gave false information about its COVID-19 vaccine safety monitoring, provided no explanation.

Plus, a data leak suggests the real reason health officials don’t want individual vaccine vials examined by independent scientists is that the vials are all different — and the mRNA in the shots is not intact.

More of this week’s highlights:

  • MedPage Today asked about a dozen physicians if and when they’re planning to get the latest COVID-19 shots. Many said they would take their boosters right away, but a few, including Dr. Paul Offit, had other plans — including not taking a booster at all.“This is a really big deal,” said Mary. “This is a sign that the consensus in their bubble is no longer there.”
  • In the largest study to date on myocarditis deaths related to COVID-19 vaccination, researchers found that 100 people in England died of myocarditis soon after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. “You have only one heart muscle,” said Mary. “Myocarditis is a huge deal.”
  • Deaths from a highly treatable heart defect could soar because fewer patients are being seen face-to-face by general practitioners since the pandemic struck, a leading charity has warned. “This explains why everyone is dropping dead,” said Polly.
  • A first-of-its-kind study examining the impact of air pollution on healthy teenagers found air pollution may trigger an irregular heart rhythm within two hours after exposure. “They are working hard to brainwash us into thinking this is normal,” said Polly.
  • The CDC reported 5,300 errors in vaccine doses given to kids, and the latest Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS, data show 155 reports of deaths in children 6 months to 17 years old. “There’s no number that’s going to make them stop,” said Mary.
  • After she was injured by the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, Sheila Bath said doctors screamed at her and told her she was “nuts” for thinking the vaccine caused her injuries.
  • The Moderna CEO discussed the company’s latest COVID-19 vaccine and research on using mRNA in seasonal flu vaccines and personalized treatments for cancer. “This is my article of the week,” said Polly.
  • The Rockefeller Foundation, the National Science Foundation and other nonprofits are pouring millions of dollars into a research initiative “to increase uptake of COVID-19 vaccines and other recommended public health measures by countering mis- and disinformation.” “This is all about money,” said Mary.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci said in a new interview that the “anti-vaxxer attitude” of some Americans risks causing non-COVID-19 virus outbreaks in the U.S
  • “By all appearances” Fauci and his team “have tried to cover up their role” in funding lethal gain-of-function research in China.
  • The Federation of State Medical Boards’ aggressive stand against “the dissemination of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation and disinformation by physicians” and its recommendations for disciplinary action have some critics questioning the organization’s motivation and the source of its authority and funding. “This is a very important article,” said Mary.
  • Forty-seven members of Congress urged the Pentagon to revoke the military’s COVID vaccine mandate. “This gives me hope for so many people,” said Polly.
  • Workers at a Wisconsin tech company agreed to have microchips implanted into their hands. “Just a year ago this was conspiracy theory,” said Mary.
  • Within their first 48 hours, nearly all newborns are pricked in the heel so their blood can be tested for dozens of life-threatening genetic and metabolic problems. Not all of the blood is used, so states hold onto the leftover “dried blood spots,” as they’re called — often without parents’ knowledge or consent.
  • According to promoters of The Great Reset, a traditional whole food diet is not only “unsustainable” but “environmentally destructive” and must be replaced with GMOs and protein alternatives made from insects, plants and synthetic biology. “This is extraordinary to me,” said Mary. “This truly shocked me.”
  • How has blind trust in our medical establishment and physicians caused the truth to be silenced and lies to be propagated? Dr. Lawrence Palevsky exposes the reality of vaccine-related adverse events and deaths in all age groups, answers questions about spike protein shedding and challenges viewers to think critically and question the narrative.
