Tara Granger, a 36-year-old nurse from New York who traditionally supports vaccination, says she has no intention of getting any of President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed vaccines. Her decision has nothing to do with the president, though, and everything to do with her valid concerns about the safety and effectiveness of the jabs.
While her job will almost certainly require her to push COVID-19 vaccines on patients once they become available, Granger has already determined that she will personally forego the jab, which she described to the New York Post as entirely unnecessary.
“The vaccine isn t something we need, even if it is safe,” Granger is quoted as saying, at the same time emphasizing that she is not an “anti-vaxxer” by profession.
“Drugs are my life,” Granger stressed. “It’s what I learned in school … (but) it scares me that I got so many free lunches and free dinners because I pushed the flu vaccine. What am I going to get when I push a COVID vaccine?”
Granger’s statements about free food refer to the “wine and dine” relationship that Big Pharma has long maintained with the American medical profession. Doctors and even medical students are groomed by pharmaceutical reps to push drugs and vaccines on patients in exchange for fancy dinners and even cold, hard cash.
Having worked in the profession for many years, Granger seems to recognize that the pharmaceutical industry is motivated by greed rather than an honest mission to help people. As a result, she has parted ways with the industry when it comes to her personal health.
“(I did) the opposite of what people did,” Granger admitted about how she took care of herself upon receiving a positive COVID-19 test result back in early summer.
“I took my supplements and vitamins, and didn’t go to the hospital to be put on a ventilator and die. I was smart enough to say, ‘my immune system can fight this; I just have to find the right way to do it.’”
As it turns out, Granger is not alone. Less than half of American adults, according to a recent Pew Research poll, say they will get vaccinated for the coronavirus once a jab becomes available. This is down from a support threshold of 72 percent back in May.
Meanwhile, numerous drug trials involving the top coronavirus vaccine contenders have been halted in recent weeks after participants developed severe adverse effects, further eroding public confidence in a future jab.
“I’m starting to think I’m the crazy one,” indicated Rob Holmes, 50, of Marina del Rey, Calif., who normally gets an annual flu shot. This time around, Holmes is skipping his annual flu shot and is also questioning whether he should skip getting a COVID-19 shot as well.
Twenty-eight-year-old Claudia Torres of Miami feels similarly. While she has long vaccinated her children in accordance with government guidelines, Torres has decided that the coronavirus vaccine is a definite no-go.
“I’m not an anti-vaxxer or think COVID-19 is a hoax,” Torres told the Post. “But I just don’t want the COVID-19 vaccine.”
Even Joe Biden’s campaign for the presidency has publicly questioned the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines, though this skepticism appears to be rooted in politics.
“If Dr. [Anthony] Fauci, if the doctors, tell us that we should take it, then I’ll be first in line to take it,” announced Kamala Harris, who along with Biden will not be taking any coronavirus vaccines that arrive under Trump’s presidency.
“But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, then I’m not taking it,” Harris, whose family owned slaves, further stated.
As for Rita Palma, founder of the anti-vaccine group “My Kids, My Choice,” the COVID-19 vaccine debacle is a good thing for vaccine skeptics who for years have warned about the dangers of childhood vaccination.
“COVID is God’s gift to the vaccine-choice movement,” Palma says. “It’s woken up so many people and put us in a national spotlight. People are finally questioning and having doubt about vaccines.”
Many people who have never questioned vaccines are now thinking twice about them due to the plandemic and its associated push to get people jabbed as quickly as possible.
“I’ve been getting so many emails and texts from people,” Palma says. “They don’t want the COVID vaccine. Even people who vaccinate their families are like, ‘oh, no, I’m not taking that one.’”
Similar events transpired back in 1976 when an H1N1 viral scare prompted then-President Gerald Ford, much like President Trump is doing now, to launch an ambitious campaign to vaccinate "every man, woman, and child in the United States." When vaccinated people started developing serious neurological conditions, however, the campaign quickly went down in flames.
The same thing is happening once again as trial participants in the leading Phase 3 clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines are falling seriously ill, creating plenty of negative press and widespread vaccine distrust.
“Even if God himself came down from the heavens and said it will do you no harm, I’d say, ’No thank you,’” Palma added, emphasizing that under no circumstances will she agree to get vaccinated.
"I believe in a whole different way of taking care of the body. I believe in healthy foods, sunshine, love, Earth connection, exercise. I just don't believe good health can ever be found in an injection."
