The Catholic Church supports vaccination because it helps to protect society’s most vulnerable people, bishops in England said Thursday....
...They wrote: “The Catholic Church strongly supports vaccination and regards Catholics as having a prima facie duty to be vaccinated, not only for the sake of their own health but also out of solidarity with others, especially the most vulnerable.”
“We believe that there is a moral obligation to guarantee the vaccination coverage necessary for the safety of others.”....
If those Bishops are speaking about the vaccinations given infants against tuberculosis, polio, (etc.) they may have a point; those vaxes have been around for generations and they work. Yes, sometimes those vaxes cause problems and we all pray for those infants. But just as with Covid-19, there will always be problems. We cannot eliminate a virus (no matter what the Government(s) say) and we cannot eliminate problems with vaccinations.
The Kung Flu vaccine is a different story.
...Environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. pointed out during an online debate on July 23 that key parts of testing are being skipped.
“The Moderna vaccine, which is the lead candidate, skipped the animal testing altogether,” Kennedy said. It was also tested on only “45 people. They had a high-dose group of 15 people, a medium-dose group of 15 people, and a low growth group of 15 people.”
“In the low-dose group, one of the people was so sick from the vaccine they had to be hospitalized,” he explained. “That’s six percent. In the high-dose group, three people got so sick they had to be hospitalized. That’s twenty percent.”...
Those are pretty high percentages.
But it gets worse.
...Another problem with the testing of the coronavirus vaccine is that it’s tested not on “typical Americans,” but a carefully selected group of people who don’t suffer from certain conditions.
“They use what they call exclusionary criteria,” Kennedy said. “They are only giving these vaccines in these tests that they’re doing to the healthiest people.”
“If you look at their exclusionary idea criteria: You cannot be pregnant, you cannot be overweight, you must have never smoked a cigarette, you must have never vaped, you must have no respiratory problems in your family, you can’t suffer asthma, you can’t have diabetes, you can’t have rheumatoid arthritis or any autoimmune disease. There has to be no history of seizure in the family. These are the people they’re testing the vaccine on.”
He asked, “What happens when they give them to the typical American? You know, Sally Six-Pack and Joe Bag of Donuts who’s 50 pounds overweight and has diabetes.”...
If Kennedy is correct about all that, I don't think the English Bishops (or any OTHER Bishops) want to make this vaccine into a "moral imperative." For that matter, I don't think Trump should be blowing the horn so damn loudly about this, either.
