One of my favorite sources!

Meticulously sourced. Avoids ungrounded speculation.

 

Dr. Payne is not an “anti-vaxxer,” he shares that he and his family are fully vaccinated, including annual flu shots. His concerns are regarding specifically the efficacy and long-term safety of Covid-19 mRna vaccines.

 

Includes Dr. Payne’s comment on why many allegedly and incorrectly labelled “anti-vax” doctors are being misrepresented or smeared in the media. 

 

Summary from letter: 

 

“The medical evidence demonstrates that the effectiveness of the mRNA vaccines has decreased significantly, they do not prevent SARS-CoV-2 transmission or symptomatic disease, and while evidence for protection against serious illness continues to exist in Calgary, that too is dissipating globally.

 

I will discuss that it is the vaccinated driving mutations, not the unvaccinated. I will show evidence that those who have been fully vaccinated generate similar or higher viral loads than the unvaccinated when challenged with Delta, and further clinical data suggesting that this widespread use of a “leaky” vaccine during a pandemic is leading to antibody-dependent enhancement, including evidence that this is already occurring with Delta.

 

I will highlight some of the long-term safety concerns with these mRNA vaccines in the context of available biodistribution data. Finally, I will speak directly to the minuscule possibility of causing harm to my pediatric patients by transmitting SARS-CoV-2.”
