The last week has had the “news” abuzz with the tantalizing prospect of “vaccination passports.” The idea behind such a project is that in order to travel, or, in some cases, work, one would need to produce a document stating that he or she has been fully vaccinated against the pandemic scourge known as COVID-19.
Aside from the obvious incursion on freedom and privacy this sort of requirement would bring on humanity, due to federal law, it is also illegal mainly because the COVID shots are still experimental, and no one can be forced to take an experimental vaccine or therapy per federal law.
Even though the FDA granted emergency use authorizations for the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines in December 2020, the clinical trials the FDA will rely upon to ultimately decide whether to license these vaccines are still underway and are designed to last for approximately two years to collect adequate data to establish if these vaccines are safe and effective enough for the FDA to license.
The abbreviated timelines for the emergency use applications and authorizations mean there is much the FDA does not know about these products even as it authorizes them for emergency use, including their effectiveness against asymptomatic infection, death, and transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the disease.
Given the uncertainty about the two vaccines, their EUAs are explicit that each is “an investigational vaccine not licensed for any indication” and require that all “promotional material relating to the Covid-19 Vaccine clearly and conspicuously … state that this product has not been approved or licensed by the FDA, but has been authorized for emergency use by FDA” (emphasis added).
This being the case, no employer can force anyone to be shot up with these experimental therapies. In doing so, the employer runs the risk of being sued by an employee if an adverse reaction occurs, which, with these mRNA “vaccines” are appearing in social and alternative media sources on an anecdotal basis.
Bottom line, if you don’t trust the shot, you don’t have to take it.
