Many private entities, such as colleges/universities and businesses, are already requiring their students and faculty or employees to be vaccinated to enter their premises. People are having to choose between attending college/university or their job or submitting their body to an experimental gene therapy with no recourse for "vaccine" injuries. School children are being offered the vaccine or the threat of mask-wearing is enforced. Youth, healthy individuals, and those under 50 are not at lethal risk of this virus that is 99.98% survivable. There is no law stating that one must provide his/her vaccination status to participate in society; once this starts, society's fabric and individuals' freedom will be destroyed.

We, the undersigned, are petitioning the legislative body of the Commonwealth of Virginia to enact a bill permanently prohibiting the use of any type of health passport by government or private entities. In consideration of the scientific data and legal precedent, principles, and jurisprudence outlined below, we assert that taking the experimental and investigational vaccines should be a choice and not coerced.

The Covid-19 vaccines are only approved under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), for investigational use only.1 The EUA does not guarantee safety.2 The FDA’s guidance on EUA of medical products requires the FDA “to the extent practicable given the applicable circumstances,” to ensure that recipients are informed “… of the significant known and potential benefits and risks of such use, and of the extent to which such benefits and risks are unknown; and that they have the option to accept or refuse the EUA product.…”3

The right to avoid the imposition of human experimentation is fundamental, rooted in the Nuremberg Code of 1947, ratified by the 1964 Declaration of Helsinki, and further codified in the United States Code of Federal Regulations.4 The 1948 Declaration of Human Rights specifically states, “Everyone has the right to freely participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.”5 U.S. caselaw also supports the exercise of medical freedoms, “this Court has never retreated from its recognition that any compelled intrusion into the human body implicates significant, constitutionally protected privacy interests….”6 Further, it is unlawful to conduct medical research on human test subjects even in the case of an emergency, unless steps are taken to secure informed consent of all participants.7

The investigational COVID-19 vaccines were granted emergency use based upon reducing symptoms only, not on preventing transmission or contraction of SARS CoV2 - “the studies aren’t designed to assess transmission…. there’s really no information on this at this point in time.”8 Thus, the reported 90%+ effective rates refer to minimizing the symptoms of COVID-19, not immunizing against the virus.

Controlled vaccine studies evidenced a covid-19 relative risk reduction (RRR) ranging between 67% and 95%, contrasted with an absolute risk reduction (ARR) of <1.2% in the entire world population!9 While RRR considers only persons who could benefit from the vaccine and is conducted in a tightly controlled research context, ARR risk is vital for predicting the true efficacy of the elimination of a disease globally.

“Several months ago, our studies showed that natural infection induced a strong response, and this study now shows that the responses last.”10 NIH-funded research found the immune systems of more than 95% of people who recovered from COVID-19 had “durable memories of the virus up to eight months after infection.” Id. The UK’s The Royal Society also notes natural antibodies provide 70 – 90% protection from the virus.11 Albeit in the early post-pandemic stages, a Denmark study found 0.6% of covid recoveries were re-infected in a second wave and individuals’ natural immunity protected them 80% of the time.12 Inadequate coverage is given to the body’s natural immunity after a covid infection.

Never before has a vaccine been made with synthetic mRNA, as with the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 gene therapies. This new, experimental method programs our cells to make an antigen. Our immune system then fights against the cell-made antigen, uncertain if it is a “self” or “foreign” agent and can lead to antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) diseases and neurodegenerative diseases.13

There are reported known risks as well as yet unknown risks of the investigational COVID-19 gene therapy. 14 The FDA limited the Phase 3 trials when the test animals started dying; consequently, the entire world’s citizens are now the subjects of the study.15 The CDC reports 9,245 Covid-19 cases and 132 deaths post-full vaccination. The VAERS.org website notes 3,837 deaths following the vaccination; significantly, only 1% - 10% of impacted persons self-report vaccine injuries.16 Already 3 vaccinated teenagers have had serious complications – brain blood clots and seizures and one death. Id. 18 teens and young adults were hospitalized in CT for heart problems post vaccination.17 Notably, during the 1978 swine flu mass vaccination program, after 53 deaths the vaccine was pulled from the market. Id. 10,000+ individuals have died in the U.S. and E.U. after getting the investigational gene therapy.18 Not likewise removing these gene therapies until the requisite safety studies are completed and FDA approval is given, is irresponsible and reprehensible.

The “vaccine” is being dispensed to millions of people worldwide who are at low or exceedingly low risk of death. The overall covid infection fatality rate (IFR) in the general population of most countries is approximately 0.1% to 0.35%, compared to the 0.3% IFR of the epidemic and medium pandemic influenza of 1957 and 1968; additionally, the global covid mortality is about 0.035%.19 Approximately 94% of people dying with Covid-19 also possessed an average of 2.9 comorbidities.20 Moreover, “the risk-benefit calculus of vaccinating children against a disease that poses a “very low likelihood of severe outcomes” to them, does not meet the definition of an “emergency.””21 It is scientifically inconsistent and ethically unjustified to submit otherwise healthy persons, those under 50, and the lowest risk population, children, to a risky experimental gene therapy.

Since 2005, Chloroquine has been recognized as an effective pre- and post-infection antiviral agent for the SARS-CoV that emerged in China and rapidly spread in 2002.22 During this pandemic, 250+ studies have shown that both Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin are safe, effective, and affordable medications to prevent and treat COVID-19.23 The non-Western world uses HCQ and reports 1% of the COVID-19 death rate of Western nations. Id. When the Zimbabwian Health Ministry permitted Ivermectin as a treatment, “case fatalities dropped in one month from seventy a day to two a day,” practically emptying their hospitals.24 Interestingly, the poorest countries had no masking, no social distancing, and limited medical care. Id.

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 protects pharmaceutical companies from lawsuits for damages.25 Once the FDA issues an EUA to permit any COVID-19 vaccine, a plaintiff’s options are limited to the PREP Act. Id. Vaccine manufacturers lobbied for this legislation to stymie state vaccine safety laws. The PREP Act provides liability immunity to certain “covered persons” against any claim of loss cause associated with the medical countermeasures, such as a COVID-19 vaccine. Id. This Act shields the pharmaceutical companies from financial liability unless there is “willful misconduct” resulting in serious physical injury or death. Id.

Vaccine passports threaten our basic human rights, our civil rights, and our democracy by creating policies that combine elements of Jim Crow, Apartheid, and Nazism. If widely instituted, they will quickly create a two-tiered, caste-like society of the have’s and have-nots, desirables and undesirables. Segregation, which this country fought for so long to abolish, will once again be rampant. If private enterprises will deny access to recreation, entertainment, employment, or education unless one is vaccinated, then it is no longer a choice but rather coercion. Secondly, peer pressure in any of the above settings will create a false sense of urgent necessity. Moreover, passports will create a surveillance state and a social credit system as in China.26 Legal protections under the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits employers questioning about one’s medical status, i.e. pregnancy, disability, diabetic, or HIV positive. Id. According to the ACLU, which has taken a strong stand against vaccine passports, it’s altogether different for an employee to voluntarily disclose his or her COVID-19 status to an employer on a one-off basis than it is to collect and retain information. There is no legal requirement that one provide publicly their vaccination status. Collection of this information also presents an easy opportunity for major data breaches and misuse of individuals’ most personal information.27

Based on the above and other published data and information, it is vitally necessary that decisive action be taken to stop the tyrannical over-reach into sacrosanct personal decision-making before wide swaths of our population are segregated and potentially harmed for life. Given full and accurate information, Virginians are fully capable of making these sensitive and consequential individual health decisions for themselves. Take a bold and courageous stand for health and the fundamental freedoms of this Commonwealth’s citizenry by protecting personal autonomy to choose what enters one’s body.

See https://www.un.org/en/about-us/universal-declaration-of-human-rights and https://www.un.org/sites/un2.un.org/files/udhr.pdf Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world, Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.

6. In 2013, the US Supreme Court reiterated the legal principle of informed consent in a case involving a citizen who refused to consent to a blood test. A blood sample was taken against his will on orders of a police officer. In a 6 to 3 ruling, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the plaintiff — even as the justices recognized that both privacy and harm were minimal. Missouri vs McNeely, 569 US 141 (2013). Also, In 2001, the Maryland Court of Appeal explicitly cited the Nuremberg Code as a source of legally enforceable ethical standards in the case against the Kennedy Krieger Institute. The case involved a government lead abatement experiment that exposed inner city Black toddlers to lead paint. The purpose was to record the damaging effects of lead. The parents were not informed about the purpose or the risks. Grimes / Higgins v Kennedy Krieger Institute, Maryland Court of Appeals, 366 Md 29; 782 A2d 807 (2001). Rabi Abdullahi, et al. v. Pfizer, Inc., 562 F.3d (2d Cir. 2009) In this case, Pfizer was found guilty of conducting an unapproved, trial of its experimental antibiotic, Trovan on children in Nigeria.

9 See http://tiny.cc/2k3ytz Citing The Lancet, absolute risk reduction assesses virus attack rates with and without the vaccine in the entire population. Moderna, Pfizer, and other vaccines were tested. http://tiny.cc/5k3ytz

10 See http://tiny.cc/9k3ytz Drs. Daniela Weiskopf, Alessandro Sette, and Shane Crotty from the La Jolla Institute for Immunology analyzed immune cells and antibodies from almost 200 people who had been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 and recovered. 98% of participants had antibodies not only 1 month after symptom onset but steadily 6-8 mos. post infection. Importantly, virus-specific B cells increased 1 month after symptoms and remained level. T cells also remained high 6 months after symptom onset. While researchers are “hopeful that a similar pattern of responses lasting over time will also emerge for the vaccine-induced responses,” clearly the healthy body’s natural responses sufficiently protect the previously infected obviating the need for vaccination.

11 See https://sorendreier.com/does-natural-immunity-earn-some-freedom/ Merck stopped its vaccine development when it discovered natural antibodies provided superior protection than the vaccine.

12 See http://tiny.cc/dk3ytz Not uncommonly, protection dropped to 47% of the time for 65+ y.o. persons, as the innate and adaptive immune systems weaken as we age.

13 See http://tiny.cc/fk3ytz Ex-Pfizer head respiratory researcher Dr. M. Yeadon and Dr. W. Wodarg objected to the jab distribution due to “an exaggerated immune reaction” when individuals confront the real virus post- vaccination. ADE from corona vaccines previously tested on cats resulted in their death once catching the wild virus. Rather than a 99.98% survivability from covid in unvaccinated persons, there could be a 20-30% death rate when vaccinated persons contract the virus. http://tiny.cc/1m3ytz The vaccine enhances the virus’ ability to enter and infect the body’s cells, increasing the disease’s severity when contracted.

14 Id. The known risks include neurological diseases such as transverse myelitis, Bells’ Palsy, multiple sclerosis, autism, and Guillain-Barre. Further, there are: well substantiated information exists that African and native Innuit and Innu persons have higher antibody responses to vaccines; CDC’s own admission that safety “is not completely knowable” and that “certain adverse effects may occur more frequently in certain population subgroups”; and possible unknown complications involving auto-immune rejection of the placenta resulting in permanent infertility. See also http://tiny.cc/hk3ytz Explaining that “prion” diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, are tied to prion proteins, of which SARS-Co-V-2 appears to be.

15 See http://tiny.cc/ik3ytz No mRNA vaccine has ever been approved for any disease much less entered final-stage trials so there is no comparable peer-reviewed data available.

16 See http://tiny.cc/lk3ytz These deaths outnumber deaths from all available vaccines between 1997 – 2013.

17 See http://tiny.cc/ok3ytz

18 http://tiny.cc/rk3ytz 288 deaths post-vaccination were reported to the Israeli People Committee, and 90% died within 10 days of vaccination.

19 See http://tiny.cc/tk3ytz The IFR for seasonal flu is 0.05 to .1% and for the 1918 pandemic flu was 2%. Actual covid hospitalization rates are near 2%, similar to 1 - 2% for influenza hospitalizations.

20 http://tiny.cc/4m3ytz Citing the finding the CDC inflated covid death count by as much as 96% when it covertly changed the long-standing, original guidelines for death reporting, resulting in perhaps just under 10,000 total covid-19 fatalities.

22 See http://tiny.cc/8l3ytz Discussing chloroquine’s effectiveness to treat not only SARS, from the SARS-Co-V family, but also as malaria, amoebiosis, HIV, and autoimmune diseases, without significant detrimental side effects. HCQ is a derivative of chloroquine.

23 http://tiny.cc/cl3ytz HCQ is considered to be safer than Motrin or Tylenol and in much of Africa, the pill is taken weekly. China required HCQ as a treatment and France implemented it after a successful trial, resulting in 1450 successful recoveries and only 2 deaths. Additional supplements including Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc and Quercetin have all been found to be beneficial in the treatment of COVID-19. FDA approved medications that have been administered safely for decades creates is unquestionably preferred to an experimental new technology.
