No, I Have Not Been Vaccinated for COVID and Will Not!

[easy-social-share buttons="facebook,twitter,print" counters=1 style="button" point_type="simple"]

I am 86 years old with a lung problem. Any bad cold, flu, or other respiratory problem could kill me rather quickly. One of my loved ones asked last week if Ellen and I had been vaccinated for the China coronavirus and was disappointed when told we had not. Some of my readers have emailed me from Africa, Europe, and the U.S. with the same question; here are my reasons.

In no particular order, I refuse to be vaccinated because:

The CDC admitted last week that the COVID deaths have been inflated, as CDC Director Robert Redfield said could happen back in August of 2020. We now know that health officials have identified on death certificates anyone dying with COVID symptoms listed as dying from COVID. This current CDC report says, “For over 5% of these deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned on the death certificate.”

The vaccine has not been tested for long-time side effects, so it is irresponsible to say it is “safe and effective.” It is disingenuous to make such an outrageous claim that is not supported with facts. No COVID-19 vaccine has been approved by the FDA, only given a temporary emergency approval.

When all other vaccines have taken many years to produce, we are expected to believe this rush job is “safe and effective,” even “rigorous”! Moreover, we still don’t have a vaccine for the common cold or AIDS, yet the four COVID vaccines were done in a few months.

No one on the face of the earth can accurately declare any vaccine is “safe” and “effective.” We now know that COVID vaccinations are not always safe since many people have died and others have experienced bad reactions. The CDC admitted on April 15, 2021, “5,800 fully vaccinated people have contracted the China coronavirus and 74 of them have died” in America. That doesn’t sound as if the vaccines are safe or effective. But what do I know? I’m only a lowly Ph.D. I wonder what the families of the dead vaccinated patients think about taking the risk with the jab.

Moreover, I suggest that there will be many thousands of dangerous delayed reactions in the next six months.

We are told that the negative reactions are minimal in the aggregate—only a handful, but it must be remembered that only a very few bad reactions are reported. However, why take the chance of permitting an unnecessary and potentially dangerous substance in your body?

I don’t believe in playing Russian roulette.

Every honest, sane person knows that anybody may react negatively to any shot, drug, medicine, peanuts, shellfish, etc. If your physician says otherwise, run from him/her as if your hair were on fire.

Health experts like Fauci tell us, “The vaccine is working as expected.” Not as I expected and not as the diseased, disabled, and deceased expected.

I also would not get a COVID vaccination because the Johnson and Johnson and AstraZeneca vaccines are using fetal cell lines, according to Dr. James Dobson.

I refuse to be vaccinated for COVID because the CDC admitted that a vaccinated person can still get COVID. Hey, I thought the reason for vaccinations was to keep me from getting infected.

I will not permit a COVID vaccination, even if required by federal or state law, because of very effective early treatment drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and ivermectin. I have been taking HCQ for a few months as a prophylactic, and my longtime minor shoulder pain ceased within a week of taking two or three pills per week. I now take one HCQ, one azithromycin, and one zinc per week. Of course, each day I get plenty of sleep, lift weights, take a dose of colloidal silver, and take various supplements and have been for decades to keep a robust immune system.

I had to purchase HCQ from India, where it is an over-the-counter drug. It is also over-the-counter in most of Europe, New Zealand, Mexico, and most South American nations, and in 48 of the 54 countries of Africa. Evidently, it is not a “dangerous, very dangerous” drug, as my personal physician foolishly said. I know people in Africa who have taken HCQ for decades for malaria. One of my daughters took it for arthritis.

Wonder why no one made an issue of HCQ until Donald Trump recommended it? Non-thinking, herd-following physicians have denigrated HCQ because of politics, not because of science. It’s also interesting that on April 16, 2021, the FDA lifted restrictions on access to the abortion pill. A woman can have a teleconference with her physician and get the killer pill in the mail. But you can’t buy the safe, cheap, effective 70-year-old over-the-counter drug, HCQ!

Shocking, and it will be more than shocking when hundreds of thousands of people realize their relatives died needlessly.

I suggest my readers check out America’s Frontline Doctors – Restoring Peace and Protecting From Harm where 18 physicians defend HCQ for treatment of COVID-19 in its early stages. Many famous physicians have used this drug successfully without losing a COVID-19 patient!

Also, renowned epidemiologist Dr. Didier Raoult, leader of a French research team, administered HCQ and azithromycin to 80 patients and observed improvement in EVERY CASE except for a very sick 86-year-old with an advanced form of coronavirus infection.

The following intriguing report is by Harvey A. Risch, M.D., Ph.D., professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health; most of this information was published in Newsweek on July 23, 2020:

“As professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, I have authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently hold senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals. I am usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine, so have been flummoxed to find that, in the midst of a crisis, I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines. As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily. Fortunately, the situation can be reversed easily and quickly.

“I am referring, of course, to the medication hydroxychloroquine. When this inexpensive oral medication is given very early in the course of illness, before the virus has had time to multiply beyond control, it has shown to be highly effective, especially when given in combination with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline and the nutritional supplement zinc.

“On May 27, I published an article in the American Journal of Epidemiology (AJE) entitled, ‘Early Outpatient Treatment of Symptomatic, High-Risk COVID-19 Patients that Should be
Ramped-Up Immediately as Key to the Pandemic Crisis.’ That article, published in the world’s leading epidemiology journal, analyzed five studies, demonstrating clear-cut and significant benefits to treated patients, plus other very large studies that showed the medication safety.

“Physicians who have been using these medications in the face of widespread skepticism have been truly heroic. They have done what the science shows is best for their patients, often at great personal risk. I myself know of two doctors who have saved the lives of hundreds of patients with these medications, but are now fighting state medical boards to save their licenses and reputations. The cases against them are completely without scientific merit.

“Since publication of my May 27 article, seven more studies have demonstrated similar benefit. In a lengthy follow-up letter, also published by AJE, I discuss these seven studies and renew my call for the immediate early use of hydroxychloroquine in high-risk patients. These seven studies include: an additional 400 high-risk patients treated by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, with zero deaths; four studies totaling almost 500 high-risk patients treated in nursing homes and clinics across the U.S., with no deaths; a controlled trial of more than 700 high-risk patients in Brazil, with significantly reduced risk of hospitalization and two deaths among 334 patients treated with hydroxychloroquine; and another study of 398 matched patients in France, also with significantly reduced hospitalization risk. Since my letter was published, even more doctors have reported to me their completely successful use.”

That expert did not get his medical degree from the back of a cereal box. His experience is real, not theoretical like Dr. Tony Fauci (the king of flip-flop) and other political physicians.

The medical fanatics and other critics of HCQ always refer to a negative study known as the VA study showing hydroxychloroquine was ineffective; however, for political reasons, the study results are often quoted but not the fact that the protocols were not followed! The drug must be given early in the disease, along with azithromycin (or doxycycline) and zinc, to be a lifesaver for the elderly. In the VA study, the physicians waited until the Angel of Death was standing outside the patients’ rooms before the drug (alone) was finally administered.

Of course, it was a failed study, but then it was planned to fail. After all, there are billions of dollars of vaccines in the pipeline that must find lodging in healthy arms. Those who are aghast at my suggestion that any true scientist, especially in the medical health could be driven by money, ego, status, etc., should be dragged, kicking, and screaming into the real world. I have documented here and here and here many examples of medical fraud and incompetence at the CDC, NIH, etc.

Each person is responsible for their own life or the lives of their children, and it is outrageous and irresponsible for any “authority” to force you to get the jab. After all, haven’t we been told for decades about the principle of “choice”? If a woman has a right to kill her innocent and helpless baby, surely I have a right to refuse to have a potentially dangerous substance shot into my body.

Some say that she only endangers her baby while an infected person could endanger many others. However, she chooses to kill her baby while I may or may not infect others, and if I infect others, there is no certainty they will die. Plus, the baby is totally helpless while much of the public has been vaccinated, the alleged solution to health crises.

If perchance I should get the China coronavirus and die, I’m sure the medical fanatics and government tyrants will wave this column over my grave, but remember this; I will not apologize or recant a word of this column.

And if a member of my family goes weak, wobbly, whiny, and “woke” in a pathetic apology for my decision, remember that no one speaks for me but me. That includes now and forever.

Besides, I simply got to Heaven quicker than I expected, and threatening me with COVID is like threatening me with Heaven!

Fact, Fraud or Faith?

by Don Boys, Ph.D.


Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
