Neither of the two pharmaceuticals being administered to millions of Americans are technically considered vaccines according to the CDC’s own definition of the word. Here is a screenshot from the CDC website–
That definition does not include the current shots offered by Pfizer and Moderna. This is confusing as the CDC website also refers to the mRNA shots as vaccines in other sections.
These are both mRNA shots. They do not include a weakened version of the virus mentioned in the definition (first image). These new shots represent one of the biggest medical leaps of the past 100 years. This is a technology that has never been tested on a large scale. While the purpose of this article is not to call into question its’ effectiveness or potential for side effects, it is important to note that this could be the biggest ‘desperate times, desperate measures’ moment since the use of nuclear weapons in 1945.
Lifenotlabs.com hopes that the mRNA shots go extremely well. We hope the people who have already received it get maximum effectiveness and minimal side effects. mRNA injections could be the greatest thing to happen to health since veggies. It is also important, however for people to know what they are having injected into their bodies. These specific Covid 19 protection shots were rushed to market. When animal trials are skipped, humans become the guinea pigs. We are living in a time of unsurpassed censorship in the United States. There is a significant portion of the population that believes even articles like this should be banned.
People are being kicked off of social media for sharing information they believe to be true (free speech). One of our viral posts from the spring was completely blocked on several platforms including Facebook and Quora. Even the record of the 20,000+ views the article received no longer shows up in our Quora stats. The article was not just deleted from where it was posted. Stats were changed.
The key difference between these shots and traditional vaccines is that mRNA bypasses several steps the body naturally takes in adjusting to a virus or traditional vaccine. Instead of the immune system learning how to deal with an attenuated virus found in a traditional vaccine, these shots are sending genetic information into the cells, telling them which proteins to make in order to block the actual virus from entering the cell. Will they be successful? Most likely, but to not inform the general public as to what they are receiving is reckless. These two shots also bypassed many steps of the normal approval process. Calling either one of these products a vaccine is incorrect and is the spreading of misinformation in itself. When Jonas Salk started creating polio vaccines in the 1800s, he was saving lives by helping the body deal with weakened versions of the deadly viruses. This is the most drastic change in preventative medicine since then.
The FDA may approve their first Covid-19 Vaccine this Thursday. Johnson and Johnson has created a product that is much closer to traditional vaccines we have been using for many decades.
