Project Veritas released the third video of its COVID vaccine investigative series Monday exposing two Johnson & Johnson (J&J) officials who argue children do not need to take the COVID vaccine, in part because of the potential long-term side effects.
One of the exposed J&J employees, a scientist by the name of Justin Durrant, laughs about inconveniencing unvaccinated adults if they refuse to comply with mandates being imposed upon them:
“Justin Durrant, J&J scientist: Inconvenience [the unvaccinated] to the point where it’s like, ‘I might as well just f*cking do it [and take the COVID vaccine],’ you know what I’m saying? Like ‘I can’t go out of state,’ I can’t – ‘my grandma’s in Canada and I can’t visit her,’ you know what I’m saying? You can’t go to France unless you’re vaccinated — you know you’ve just got to keep doing things like that where you’re almost like a second-grade citizen if you’re not vaccinated, but I know that’s awful.
Veritas journalist: You’re almost what?
Durrant: Like a second-grade citizen, like you can’t do anything that a normal citizen can do.
Veritas journalist: A second graded citizen?
Durrant: Yeah like top grade, like the ones that get it, and the ones that just like — then you can’t do sh*t. …
Veritas journalist: So then how do we punish [the unvaccinated]?
Durrant: I mean if you can’t work, I feel like that’s punishment enough.
Veritas journalist: People what?
Durrant: Only way people really act and comply is if it affects their pockets, like if you’re working for a big company and you’re going to lose your job, best believe you’ll be the first one in line [to take the COVID vaccine].
Veritas journalist: Right, so if you’re working for a big company and you’re about to lose your job, you’ll be the first one in line?
Veritas journalist: That’s so true. That’s smart, that’s what we need to do.
Durrant: That’s what we’re doing.”
Durrant said he does not recommend taking his own company’s vaccine. He asked the Veritas journalist to keep that information private.
“Don’t get the Johnson & Johnson [COVID vaccine], I didn’t tell you though,” he said.
Both Durrant and Brandon Schadt, J&J’s regional business lead, said that applying the COVID vaccine on children would not move the needle in the battle against the pandemic.
“It wouldn’t make that much of a difference” if children are unvaccinated for COVID, Durrant said.
“It’s a kid, you just don’t do that, you know? Not something that’s so unknown in terms of repercussions down the road, you know?” Schadt said.
“It’s a kid, it’s a f*cking kid, you know? They shouldn’t have to get a f*cking [COVID] vaccine, you know?”
Schadt compared J&J’s COVID vaccine efficacy to the other pharmaceutical companies.
“J&J is like stepping in the best smelling pile of sh*t you could step in,” he said.
