Concise COVID & Vaccine Talking Points

One thing about supporters of the “orthodox” COVID narrative, they love their talking points. While annoying during a discussion, their constant repetition of short, understandable, memorable lines seems to serve them well, particularly on social media. To help out those committed to COVID truth, we have published the information below largely drawn from the Canadian COVID Alliance. We did add the first two points to remind everyone that there is no “FDA approved” COVID vaccine available in the United States and that not all Christian leaders support these “vaccines” or their mandated use.

Feel free to post recommended additions to this list below in the comments. As we have been doing with our page on Vaccine Religious Exemptions, we would like to grow this list over time with community help.

Public Perceptions

Evidence-Based Considerations

– Pfizer’s vaccine has been fully approved by the FDA which proves it is safe
– The only COVID vaccines available in the U.S. are all under EUA. Comirnaty, the only FDA “approved” vaccine is not available in the U.S. EUA Vaccines require disclosure of the risks of the vaccine, and consent to be included in a trial.

The FDA re-issued the EUA for Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine on August 23, 2021 (the same day they publicly announced the FDA approval of Comirnaty, the vaccine which was tested in Europe). In the FDA’s Reissued Letter of Authorization for Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is the following disclaimer in fine print: 

The licensed vaccine has the same formulation as the EUA-authorized vaccine and the products can be used interchangeably to provide the vaccination series without presenting any safety or effectiveness concerns. The products are legally distinct with certain differences that do not impact safety or effectiveness. (FDA, n.d.) 

– The FDA has not stated how the two products are legally distinct and what the certain differences are.

– Christian leaders promote and support the vaccines, calling it a Christian duty to get vaccinated. There is no moral issue with the vaccines.
– The only COVID vaccines available in the U.S. and Canada have some connection with aborted fetal cells. This connection varies by vaccine. We include a chart in this article. While some Christian leaders have excused this connection, many others have not.
–  All Christian leaders should, regardless of their personal feelings on the vaccines, support voluntary, informed consent for any medical procedure. It is a question of God-given free will explored here, here, here, and here.
– COVID-19 poses a serious threat to public health.
– Risk varies with age and comorbidities. Children, adolescents and young adults have a very low risk of hospitalization or death from COVID-19.
– There is no available, effective, approved treatment for COVID-19.
– There are known safe drug protocols that are effective in COVID-19 treatment and prevention. For more information, visit articles here and here.
– Because healthy people are considered to transmit the virus, restrictions (including social distancing and lockdowns) are the best way to reduce transmission of COVID-19.

– Numerous studies have found that healthy people do not significantly contribute to transmission of the virus.

– Research has shown that the majority of people who have recovered from COVID-19 have developed immunity and do not transmit the virus.

Targeted early treatment and empowering people to build healthy, meaningful, socially connected lives is essential to personal well being and public health.

– COVID-19 vaccines are necessary, safe, and effective (“the benefits outweigh the risks”), and the fastest and only way to get back to, and perpetually maintain normal life.

– The methods used to justify rapid COVID-19 vaccine development and rollout do not adequately measure necessity, safety, and efficacy.

– There have been an unprecedented number of deaths and serious, life altering adverse reactions occurring shortly after COVID-19 vaccination.

– Contrary to initial scientific assumption, the lipid nanoparticles in the COVID-19 vaccines do not stay at the injection site but travel throughout the body, cross the blood-brain barrier, and have been shown to accumulate in sensitive tissues including bone marrow and ovaries.

– Much remains unknown about the extremely serious short and long term adverse effects and dangers of the COVID-19 vaccines. These risks need to be independently investigated immediately and resolved before continuing with mass vaccination.

– All COVID-19 vaccines are fully approved.
– COVID-19 vaccines are authorized for use “under interim order” and are therefore investigational. The current experimental phases are not due to be completed until 2023 or 2024. For more information, see here and here.
– “The Science” is settled; anything contrary to the official narrative is not science.

– “The Science” is not settled; competing evidence about COVID-19 is growing from many highly-credentialed sources and challenges the official narrative. Compelling scientific evidence is being ignored or censored.

– In valuing principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion, we need to encourage multiple ways of knowing, and develop public health protocols that are evidence informed and responsive to the overall health and wellbeing of our individuals and communities.
