"The levels of sickness after vaccination is unprecedented and staff are getting very sick and some with neurological symptoms"

category international | health / disability issues | news report author Tuesday April 13, 2021 11:27author by NHS Doctor Report this post to the editors

Do doctors have to have the covid-19 vaccine?

This letter from a consultant in the NHS appeared in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) in the rapid response section of BMJ 2021; 372 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.n810 (Published 29 March 2021) explaining how staff in the NHS who have received the Covid vaccine are getting sick and some of them very seriously too. The BMJ has already removed the article but it is reproduced here.

Dear Editor

I have had more vaccines in my life than most people and come from a place of significant personal and professional experience in relation to this pandemic, having managed a service during the first 2 waves and all the contingencies that go with that.

Nevertheless, what I am currently struggling with is the failure to report the reality of the morbidity caused by our current vaccination program within the health service and staff population. The levels of sickness after vaccination is unprecedented and staff are getting very sick and some with neurological symptoms which is having a huge impact on the health service function. Even the young and healthy are off for days, some for weeks, and some requiring medical treatment. Whole teams are being taken out as they went to get vaccinated together.

Mandatory vaccination in this instance is stupid, unethical and irresponsible when it comes to protecting our staff and public health. We are in the voluntary phase of vaccination, and encouraging staff to take an unlicensed product that is impacting on their immediate health, and I have direct experience of staff contracting Covid AFTER vaccination and probably transmitting it. In fact, it is clearly stated that these vaccine products do not offer immunity or stop transmission. In which case why are we doing it? There is no longitudinal safety data (a couple of months of trial data at best) available and these products are only under emergency licensing. What is to say that there are no longitudinal adverse effects that we may face that may put the entire health sector at risk?

Flu is a massive annual killer, it inundates the health system, it kills young people, the old the comorbid, and yet people can chose whether or not they have that vaccine (which had been around for a long time). And you can list a whole number of other examples of vaccines that are not mandatory and yet they protect against diseases of higher consequence.

Coercion and mandating medical treatments on our staff, of members of the public especially when treatments are still in the experimental phase, are firmly in the realms of a totalitarian Nazi dystopia and fall far outside of our ethical values as the guardians of health.

I and my entire family have had COVID. This as well as most of my friends, relatives and colleagues. I have recently lost a relatively young family member with comorbidities to heart failure, resulting from the pneumonia caused by Covid. Despite this, I would never debase myself and agree, that we should abandon our liberal principles and the international stance on bodily sovereignty, free informed choice and human rights and support unprecedented coercion of professionals, patients and people to have experimental treatments with limited safety data. This and the policies that go with this are more of a danger to our society than anything else we have faced over the last year.

What has happened to “my body my choice?” What has happened to scientific and open debate? If I don’t prescribe an antibiotic to a patient who doesn’t need it as they are healthy, am I anti-antibiotics? Or an antibiotic-denier? Is it not time that people truly thought about what is happening to us and where all of this is taking us?

Competing interests: No competing interests



This letter has been reported widely but huge pressure has been brought to bear to have it removed which is happening. Still a copy at this site:

Update

There are some replies to the now censored letter (see above) on the BMJ website and one of the respondents brings up these interesting statistics. Here is their reply in full: https://www.bmj.com/content/372/bmj.n810/rapid-responses

Dear Editor

K Polyakova writes[1]:

“Nevertheless, what I am currently struggling with is the failure to report the reality of the morbidity caused by our current vaccination program within the health service and staff population.”

Or the population as a whole. As of 21 March the PfizerBioNTech product had received 40,883 Yellow Card reports from 13m doses (1 in 317) and the Oxford/AstraZeneca 99,817 from 15.8m doses (1 in 158), or precisely double the rate. The Pfizer had accumulated 116,627 total adverse reactions 283 of which were fatal and the Oxford 377,487 total adverse reactions of 421 were fatal [2,3,4].

Indy editor: That is a total of 283 + 421 = 704 reported deaths from Covid vaccines in UK.

Also, by now the US VAERS database has accumulated for the Pfizer and Moderna products 2,248 cases “where patient died”: this in barely 3 months is one fifth of the total number of reports for all vaccines “where patient died” (10,957) since the database began in 1990 [5,6].

Both Yellow Cards and VAERS are of course passive reporting systems which are only expected to pick up a fraction of the data.
