I was diagnosed with cancer in June 2020. I knew I had found the right oncologist when she advised me to absolutely NOT get the vaccine, stating that she would throw her body across mine if anyone threatened me with the jab.

I’m an oncologist,and My wife and I both had Covid in early 2020.While I was going through it,I read John Ioannidis’s paper in STAT,an online publication,saw his DIAMOND PRINCESS analysis,and realized that what we were hearing in the media was dead wrong,so I was a Covid skeptic early on.The mRNA template was unproven,so I was skeptical of it early,too.I did graduate work in immunology,so I understood the importance of T cell mediated immunity,and believed I would have lasting immunity from the infection,and that proved to be the case.I never encouraged anyone from vaccination in 2020(I work for a moderate size nonprofit hospital corporation),but I stopped wearing a mask in March 2021,and have been discouraging patients from vaccination since,particularly if they have had Covid.In my hospital system,I could certainly be disciplined or fired for my actions,and our ‘medical director’ is as big a CovidNazi as you will find,but we are short staffed,and they need me in the call schedule,so,so far,so good.Don’t get me started on the unusual clotting disorders I’ve seen in vaccinated patients with alarming frequency…

I'm getting a kidney transplant eventually and the donor program told me you don't need the vaccine anymore. This was about six weeks ago. I also took a job as a prison nurse for the state of Pennsylvania about six weeks ago, they dropped their vaccine requirement and this wasn't something that was publicized in media. I didn't see it listed anywhere in the job postings like they usually had so when I was called to interview the first thing I asked was what's the current Vax policy, guy said there wasn't one anymore.

I played golf with a gentlemen a few weeks ago, who has spent his entire career in the pharmaceutical sales business. Over a beer I asked him what he thought of the mRNA shots. He asked me if I took it, I said no. He then said excellent. They are experimental and have not been tested for long-term effects and we are now clearly seeing they do not work at all.

A friend is in the process of admitting her father to a nursing home. She asked if she needs the shots to visit him. They told her no and they’re not even giving boosters to the patients and staff.

I was pleasantly surprised this year at my child's well check that the dr did ask if we were wanting a Covid shot for her, she made no attempt to push it. Then said when I said no, we aren't interested, "She likely already had it anyways" and just moved on. Complete change from a year prior when she tried to talk me into it and I informed I work in the Research space so I definitely not getting it for my 12 YO...and she kept saying the risks were minimal and I had to inform her that is also minimal if she actually had COVID so no thanks.

I've mentioned this before and it is still fresh. If I am repeating myself here I apologize.

A discussion with a friend who knows a soldier of an Army base in Colorado, a large base. He is dating his daughter. He told him that in his combat group (this is where I don't know what is meant by group and am hoping for more feedback soon) 26 soldiers, infantry soldiers, young men in their 20s and 30s, 26 of them have had heart attacks in the last year. And, the commander of his group has to have a new heart, he's on the transplant list.

This just does not happen! I am thinking the group means around 1000 give or take 100 knowing the base. 26 out of 10,000 would be unheard of, this is a calamity if true, which I have no reason to doubt it.

Huge chunks of the military may be unfit to fight because of a shot.

I will post once I find out what a group is.

My regular NPA whom I rely on for everything was initially pushing the shots energetically. My last physical 3 weeks ago, not a peep. When we discussed a pneumonia vaccine, she stressed it was a "traditional" vaccine and did recommend it due to my age and I agreed. The assistant who administered the shot quietly congratulated me for not taking the Covid shots. Something has changed in their office in the last year or so. Big time. Anecdotal but it's what I'm seeing. Thanks.

I have a neighbor who was doing well, despite having had a bad bout of Lymes disease. After his 3rd jab, he returned to a full on return to Lymes, actually worse than before. His physician attributed it directly to the jab. Another life-long friend had cancer and was doing well. She had 3 jabs....she's dead. Cancer could have come calling I suppose, but after the jabs, she went downhill so fast it was surreal.

A close friend from high school is a top cardiologist in my area. I mean he was trained at institutions most average people know by name and would consider traveling to if they had the money and the need. In a text exchange with me he said the following:

"Btw, I read all the stuff you post on FB. Agree with all of it. Just can't come out like that...like my job too much. The jab is bad news. Don't you dare give it to your kids!"

That was August of last year. Then in January of this year, he said:

"Can't tell you how much how much heart attack, stroke, unchecked cancer and opportunistic infection I'm seeing."

Trust me. Doctors want this whole COVID thing to just go away! It's made a complete laughing stock of the medical community, and breached the trust that people once had for their doctor, or any doctor going forward.

Doctors were hoodwinked, bought off, or both. Now that little $40 a jab they were receiving from the COVID fund seems much less. Because many of these doctors are going to lose patients that will NEVER return. The whole, "Don't believe your lying eyes" bit only goes so far. There comes a point where antidotal evidence becomes the truth, that's where we are now.

Never forget those who pushed the poison! Never forget those that made you get a shot you didn’t want to keep your job. These assholes need to and will be held accountable!

Late September 2021, I took my then 9-year-old daughter to her annual physical. We live in a small rural community and her pediatrician is in a neighboring town that is even more rural. I asked him about his thoughts on the shot (as I do for all childhood vaccines) and everything he said could have come from a Michigan Department of Health and Human Services PSA. He accepts tons and tons of Medicaid patients, so I assumed this was because he had to - under some sort of threat. (As an aside, I tried to get a mask exemption for my daughter because her face would turn colors when wearing a mask and he told me the State of Michigan said no exemptions except for things like Autism or other mental health issues. He apologized and said his hands were tied).

While he told me the shot was safe and all that B.S., he did tell me that he had 13-year-old boy in his practice that had myocarditis shortly after taking the vaccine. This is a SUPER SMALL PRACTICE in a SUPER SMALL TOWN. I wonder if this was his way of telling me something.

Since the shots have become available for my daughter's age group, I have NOT received one call letting me know they had them available or I could get them there, not even some sort of robocall.

This has been the most optimistic substack piece I've read all day. Alex, I think this needs to be a story…if not a book. They can't just memory hole all the shit they put us through and change uniforms. Sending good vibes to all those about to undergo procedures. ❤️

That first story is exactly what happened to my father in law. He had low-lying bone cancer for over a decade but it wasn't causing him any particular problems. A couple months after getting the Pfizer jab, he suddenly had a fast acting leukemia. He was dead a couple of months later.

Quietly the wheel turns it seems: my quack who a year ago literally berated me for not participating in the Great Experiment, now does not even mention it. My brother in law is a cardiologist in PA and is fully boosted (and got Covid - duh!!) used to tell me "Just get it and you travel south to visit - from Canada". Now, never mentions it. As Alex says something is happening but as this is purely political and NOT scientific, the wrong people are still calling the shots.

My wife, an acupuncturist, was treating a ling time patient, an NHS nurse. Asked her how she was, and how it was at work - her husband an MHS consultant. They were fine, but SIX of their colleagues had recently retired with cardiac/stroke problems.

After reading the comments, I want to add that while we should be thankful former pushers are no longer pushing, it doesn't mean they should be let off the hook for the damage they've done. Stopping pushing is not the same as admission of guilt and repentance. The evidence was there for them to see long ago and they either ignored it or were too lazy to seek it out. Earning back lost respect will require more than we're seeing

There are still some places that are pushing the vaccines! It's crazy at this point.

We know that the whole thing went down like a psyop, mass formation psychosis. But now, not even the media is pushing it. So, why are some businesses still onboard?

At any rate, this whole thing has been surreal for me. I didn't get the jab, and made sure that my wife didn't have to either. She worked at a local hospital and they were requiring it. I made arrangements to pull money out of my retirement to pay off our house, and make it so that my wife didn't have to work anymore!

That was a good move, because even though we had to pay a large tax penalty, NONE of us are jabbed, and the stock market is tanking, so my 401k would have been largely hit.

The world is completely up in the air at this point, and I'm not sure where we are going from here.

I am a 58 year old man diagnosed with persistent atrial fibrillation about 6 weeks ago. The only symptom was my Apple watch alerting me; I am otherwise hale and healthy with no other symptoms, all tests and vitals normal and still trying to get to the bottom of it. I have had appointments with a new PCP and a cardioversion with a new Cardiologist and any number of nurses and ED docs and told all that I was unvaccinated. None recommended the vax to me. I had Covid in December but that didn't seem relevant to any of the medical people I spoke/met with.

I am a 63-year-old male Army veteran. Prior history of lymphoma. Doctors have told me I have 3 co-morbidities for Covid: (1) Damaged heart valves due to radiation treatments to the chest. (2) Injured lungs with diminished capacity due to Chemotherapy (Bleomycin) side effects. (3) Cancer survivor with an immune system that never fully rebounded after the chemotherapy was completed. Noting that I am physically fit and not obese.

Semi-annual appointment with my PCP three weeks ago. He told me I am eligible for the 2nd booster, but he recommended against it even though I am over age 60 and have multiple co-morbidity risk factors for an adverse Covid outcome. He has seen too many incidents of rapid disease progression, such as prostate cancer quickly metastasizing, amongst the RNAi vaccinated that he has never before seen in his career.

Anecdotal but I have noticed a huge shift. Went for routine yearly medical appts this year, and not ONE question/point about covid vaccines, whereas last year it was usually at the top of the list.

My own physician said 'yeah, I should encourage you to get the vaccine, but at this point if you haven't had it and don't have any antibodies, I don't know what to tell you.' My spouse was hospitalized with covid and I took care of spouse for at least a week beforehand when we didn't realize it was covid. Still no antibodies whatsoever, and I've had multiple tests (antibody, antigen, PCR) in the last year and a half.

IMHO there has definitely been a shift on this in the medical community.

My father had a stroke (7) years ago and has had trouble breathing since. Damage to the vocal cord area. He had Kidney Stones and needed to get them removed.

He went to the hospital where they tested him for COVID, he was negative. He goes through the procedure and has trouble coming off the anesthesia.

He was having breathing difficulties. So, they test him for COVID, as part of the their protocol, and say that he’s POSITIVE! He was tested (5) hours earlier and he was negative. You can’t become ill with COVID in (5) hours!

I was out of state at the time. I told him to get the hell out of the hospital! Because they were going to blame his breathing trouble on COVID. He had a stroke (7) years ago, and has had trouble since. Anyway he got out and is doing fine now.

I'm convinced that the hospital was going to try and put him on a vent, so they could cash in. This whole thing has been amazingly bad! EVERYTHING from the top down about COVID and the vaccines has been 100% lies.

I am just curious, what are people going to do if it turns out that my suspicions that the mRNA shots are just enhancing prior illnesses if not minimizing responsible immunity from Covid?

All these doctors screaming we should get shots, and then the evidence turns out that they’re killing people, well, if I were a physician shrieking “get the shot or get the fuck out of my office!“, I would genuinely be worried about the safety of my life and my family’s lives…

Addendum to what I just wrote a minute ago:

Really, I think physicians have totally fucked up the profession by either being horrifically absent from responsible dialogue, or just shrieking political agendas.

And frankly, I think there should be serious consequences for it, I truly believe in the adage, “bad things should happen to bad people”…

Clueless, or complicit, neither is an excuse to say, “I didn’t know better, give me a break“…

My response would be, “what appendage, you diseased despicable motherfucker!?“

My partner has leukemia. His oncologist almost would not accept him as a patient initially as he didn’t want vaccines: pneumonia, shingles etc. Very stressful situation. I pretended to be the conciliatory partner who would gradually bring him around. Then came Covid. He started to push vaccines less and less. He literally never mentions the Covid vaccines. A while back I remember my partner turning to me after a visit saying, he doesn’t seem to push vaccines anymore. This doc is at a major cancer hospital in Manhattan.

I am about to turn 70 in the fall. At my requisite Medicare/Supplemental Medicare “Wellness” visit a month ago my PCP (who is actually a physician’s assistant), he never mentioned the Covid V or asked if I was vaccinated, or if I had had Covid. (He knows better because I told him years ago(way before Covid was on the horizon), I would be declining any and all “vaccinations” that are recommended for us ‘seniors’.)

He also noted in my chart (at my request) for the practice to not ask me any longer about any vaccinations, or diagnostic testing like a Dexa bone density scan, mammograms, or colonoscopy. Requisite blood work is all I want.

Then after two years of being around people in all manner of ‘gatherings’ (small and hundreds of people, who were not vaxxed), not wearing masks, two weeks ago I contracted a “flu like virus” that gave me serious body aches, headaches, fever, loss of smell and taste, then morphed into ‘cold like symptoms’. I was exposed to this ‘virus’ when I had lunch with my niece and her Gramma. The Gramma is vaxxed and boosted and tested ‘positive’ the day after our lunch, after having ‘symptoms of something’. So within two days of exposure I fell ill.

So basically I was ‘infected’ by a vaxxed and boosted person! It’s been 16 days and I’m feeling better after using the ‘FLCCC protocols’ (Ivermectin and supplements) and a couple of IV Drip Ozone and Vitamin C Therapy treatments to help me recover and get my energy back.

My Dr is no longer encouraging the shots. He was an early adopter of them, said he trusted "the science" behind them. A full year went by before I saw him again for my annual physical and after I told him that I never got jabbed, he told me that he never got the booster and doesn't want one. He's also had covid twice himself now. I told him that to the best of my knowledge that I never had it.

As a hematologist who is also a microbiologist, I was certain in March of 2020 that we were all being had and told whomever would listen. Especially early on when the vents and the improper care were killing most admissions, I have advised elderly (75+) patients that the shot would likely help them avoid some severe disease. At their age they are unlikely to suffer long term sequelae. But I also told them that adequate levels of Vitamin D would likely be generally protective anyway. One way or the other, have not lost any to Covid.

I have never advised anyone under 60 to get the spikeshot and have gotten very strident with the parents of those under 20 that this was almost certainly more likely to cause harm than good. I have advised against the shot to those in the throes of their malignancy (like the MM patient Alex mentioned) because screwing with their immune systems at that sensitive time with a complete unknown just seemed (and still seems) too risky.

I have never worn a mask (except in the OR where I have been noting for years that it is just theater) -- that was known to be ridiculous from the get-go. I have never had my patients wear one in my offices either -- and none have minded. I have pointed out many times that lying about the efficacy of masks, which is where all the lies began (together with lies about the efficacy of lockdowns) would do nothing but convince everyone that public health (for sure) and medicine (sadly) could not be trusted. And that has come to pass.

I have certainly heard anecdotal reports from other docs about malign occurrences that have happened after spikeshots, but am generally relieved that my patients have either avoided them, or have recovered (as far as we know today) without getting them when they chose/were forced to get the spikeshot anyway.

This is all going to go down as one of the darkest periods in medicine. As Alex notes, the medical societies/associations (especially the AAP which should be disbanded) have not figured this out yet. With luck their membership will give them hell when they do...but most of these things just seem to go unpunished and often unrecognized.

Yes! Last year at my physical - my Dr was totally pushing the shot. I said no thanks - and asked if he had seen data coming out of Israel that they were failing…he said - yeah - could be an outlier. He tried to bully me by telling me about ‘healthy’ patients that died. I still said NO - I’ll keep taking my vitamins, eat right and exercise.

One year later - NOT ONE PEEP about covid at all. I told him that I got Covid in April (natural immunity for the win)- and he ignored it completely!!! I didn’t want to start a fight …I was irritated enough that I had to mask….but that was a huge shift my Dr went thru. He’s part of a huge INOVA system here in VA.

My overseas doctor (cardiologist but also does my yearly physicals) was upset with me for having taken JJ shot (coerced fed employee). I now have a note in my patient record to not get any more shots (of any kind mRNA, adeno, whatever else they come up with) due to my existing blood clotting issues. He was definitely not mincing words that no one under 65 should be getting the shots if they don’t have comorbidities like diabetes, obesity and similar.

Only tangentially related but I just want to mention hippie dippie Omega Institute in Rhinebeck—which I used to like —is requiring Covid shots for all their summer programs, no exceptions. F those ex flower children. The craziest part is that Radical Remission, an organization that promotes non traditional views of cancer healing, is holding their summer retreat there. Pretty pathetic and contradictory in my opinion. I don’t understand how an organization that supposedly supports oncology patients on their own unique paths can require these vaccines. Omega is also showing zero integrity.

the city of Charlotte was telling citizens (ATTENTION CITIZENS) about delays for trash pickup etc and other services were behind due lack of staff. Local reporters reinforce thus.

I naively got the first two shots and came to regret it. Over the next six months I had some adverse reactions, clearly caused by the vaccines (seem to be OK now). I tried to report them to my primary care doctor, who blew me off. His office (big corporate practice) is fanatical about useless masks and other nonsense. No more vaccines for me. Last November I saw him for my annual "wellness check." He asked me if I had gotten the booster and I said no, fully expecting him to harangue me about getting it. To my surprise, he impassively said nothing and just moved on. Now he has really moved on, leaving the practice for reasons unknown. I now have zero trust in the public health system and most of the medical profession.

In early 2021, I recommended for people at high risk. Once I started seeing vaccinated people with delta in summer 2021, I have not recommended it for anyone. Never recommended boosters or covid shots for kids. Now, I wish I had never recommended them for anyone. Still unvaxed. Still immune.

My husband and I have a good friend who is a physician/epidemiologist and a pharma industry veteran working with drug safety (including for another company using the mRNA platform for non-vaccine purposes). He had major qualms about those from the beginning, refused to take them himself, and is not letting them anywhere near his children. He told us one of the first things that made him realize something was off in a big way was when the media was trying to paint HCQ as some sort of poison, despite the fact that it has a better safety record than nearly all other prescription drugs and many OTC meds.

Our pediatrician retired early (she has not offered the vax), researched new offices. Closer office was, "so excited to offer vaxxines and Paxlovid to our younger patients!" The next had a one star review from frustrated teen who posted angrily that this office "refused to vaxxinate me or prescribe birth control pills without parental consent!" I knew I'd found our new home. Nobody there has even mentioned getting injected.

I’m fortunate in that my PCP has always been vehemently against the vaccine. Early on she was losing patients as a result. She’s not only been completely vindicated but now has more referrals than she can handle. She predicts more vaccine-related deaths than from Covid alone, IE the instances without comorbidities. Unfortunately we’ll never hear if she’s right as Big Pharma sponsored Corp Media will no doubt bury those reports.

my mom is 93 years young, she was resistant on getting the shot, I made her. She is mobile watches jeopardy every night, and drives faster than me in the slow lane. lol She recently went in for blood work, and he Dr. of 20 years, said your all good no second booster needed.

She has gotten 3 shots, and since then she has complained of more aches and pains in her legs. Hmmm I wonder.......she basically said to me the other day, no more shots I am done! we all are, as I said so sorry I got it, and I got J and J, which two days later, said it caused blood clots, and put the vax on hold. Ugh just eat well, keep your weight down, get mental and physical excersie.

Her cousin btw 85 years young , youthful , full of life, (same DNA I guess ) got the shot in Feb of 21 , was on her couch one week later, put her head back, fell into a coma, went to hospital died a week later, we all wondered if it was the vax......... but we were like no , we wonder now, I think it was............

Our daughter's pediatrician changed her attitude in the other direction: She told us in 2020 and 2021 not to worry about Covid, which wasn't a significant threat to children, then told us in 2022 that Covid is deadly to children and we absolutely must get the safe and effective Pfizer vaccine to save our daughter's life. It was one of the strangest conversations I've ever had.

Feel like the next step in your investigative journalism is vaccine injury. Or in somebody's investigative journalism. This is obviously why these docs are switching suddenly.

Last week I called to make an appointment with a specialist I have not seen before. The front office person asked me if I was vaccinated. I said no, she said, “not a problem”. Not a problem?
