A Louisiana-based emergency medical practitioner, Dr. Joseph Fraiman, is advocating for the halt of administering Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines until further clinical trials determine whether the benefits outweigh the harms, The Epoch Times reports.
He states, “I don’t see how anyone couldn’t be certain that the benefits are outweighing the harms on a population level, or even in the high-risk groups. I don’t see the evidence to support that claim.”
“But I also can’t say that there’s evidence to support that it’s potentially more harmful, but there’s also uncertainty here,” he went on to say, before advising against vaccination “outside of a clinical trial.”
“Given that scenario, I believe that people should not be given the [vaccines] outside of a clinical trial, because we need to figure out … if their benefits outweigh harm or if harm outweighs benefits,” he said.
Dr. Fraiman led a study reanalyzing the original Pfizer and Moderna trials, which concluded that vaccinated individuals were at a higher risk of serious adverse events.
“Given alternative causes are unlikely to cause myocarditis within one week of vaccination, this is essentially conclusive evidence that we’re seeing sudden cardiac deaths from the vaccines,” Fraiman said.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified safety signals, or adverse events, that potentially link to the vaccines but require further study, Epoch Times points out. In December 2022, the FDA revealed that the Pfizer vaccine was linked to blood clotting in elderly individuals, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found hundreds of other signals in their research.
Moreover, German researchers, who investigated the deaths of 25 people who died suddenly at home after vaccination, ruled out all potential causes except for vaccination for five of the people. This led Dr. Fraiman to say, “Given alternative causes are unlikely to cause myocarditis within one week of vaccination, this is essentially conclusive evidence that we’re seeing sudden cardiac deaths from the vaccines.”
Fraiman at one point also pointed out that excess mortality, or deaths from all causes, have risen during the pandemic with spikes correlating with the introduction of the vaccines. Vaccines may not have caused the additional deaths, according to Fraiman. But some researchers, including British professors Norman Fenton and Martin Neil, have examined the data and found a signal that the vaccines were linked to at least some of the excess deaths.
Fraiman’s Sep 2022 publication in Vaccine, a peer-reviewed medical journal, concluded that Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines “were associated with an excess risk of serious adverse events of special interest” and that elevated risk of vaccine-related injuries found in his study “points to the need for formal harm-benefit analyses.”
