Florida’s Surgeon-General, Dr. Joseph Ladapo says he would not recommend the new COVID-19 vaccine to any living being on earth because of major safety concerns.
The new COVID-19 vaccine is now available at participating pharmacies and health care providers, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends it for everyone 6 months of age and older — yet not all health experts are on board.
“It’s just a really terrible idea,” Ladapo said. “And it’s remarkable and really spellbinding that [the CDC] would make that kind of recommendation in the absence of evidence.”
By “evidence,” Ladapo is referring to clinical trials, which were not conducted for the new vaccine.
“The FDA and CDC could have compelled Pfizer or Moderna to conduct clinical trials — that’s something that’s totally doable — and they didn’t do it,” he noted.
In addition to the rare risk of myocarditis — inflammation of the heart muscle — Ladapo shared his concerns about other potentially dangerous side effects of the vaccine.
“The risks are very real, which adds to the madness of the way that the CDC and the FDA are making decisions right now,” the Florida surgeon general said.
One of those risks, he said, is something called “negative effectiveness” — a phenomenon in which contact among vaccinated people can result in the vaccines becoming less effective.
Multiple studies across various countries and time periods have demonstrated that after a few months of boosters, the vaccine effectiveness appears to “go negative,” according to Ladapo.
While there are other potential scientific explanations, the doctor said there appears to be some effect on immunity — and an increased risk of infection — stemming from the many COVID-19 vaccines.
“I suspect that it is a real finding and a major safety concern,” he said. “And they’re pushing the product on human beings. That is an anti-human approach … an anti-human policy.”
Another potential risk of the new COVID vaccine, according to Ladapo, is that multiple studies have linked it to the presence of spike protein in the body, up to six months after injection.
The spike protein — which is found on the surface of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 — helps to enable the entry of the virus into healthy cells.
“There are so many reasons to say ‘pause’ at this point. Instead, the CDC and FDA are saying ‘full steam ahead.'”
He added, “It raises serious questions about the appropriateness of using these products in human beings.”
Ladapo cited a 2022 study led by UCLA and the University of Maryland — published in the journal Vaccine — which found that there was a 16% higher risk of serious adverse events in mRNA vaccine recipients.
