Vaccine CHOICE at Monmouth University
Vaccine CHOICE at Monmouth University
There has been a lot of talk about mandating the corona virus vaccine at Monmouth University, as several schools in New Jersey have already mandated it. Many students and families feel that this is a violation of their rights and that it should be a persons choice as to whether or not they receive it. We ask that the university will respect our wishes of making the vaccine optional. As students of one of the most prestigious schools in the state, we take great pride in our education at Monmouth and value all that the school has to offer. It would be a great disappointment if some of those students would have to end their education at Monmouth because of this.
To further our point, none of the available vaccines are FDA approved and therefore, manufactures are not held liable for any negative side effects. Many students who have already contracted the virus possess such antibodies and contribute to herd immunity. We are extremely proud of the universities steps to ensure covid safety otherwise, such as regular testing, social distancing practices, sanitization standards, and safely transitioning back to in person classes. We feel that it is unsafe for force an experimental vaccine upon the students, where the long-terms effects of the immunization are not known. Here is just some of the information we have gathered as to why the vaccination should not be mandatory to attend the university in person. Please take this into full consideration.
“The creation of a vaccine involves scientists and medical experts from around the world, and it usually requires 10 to 15 years of research before the vaccine is made available to the general public. The first step of this extensive process involves several years of laboratory research, in which scientists and researchers identify an antigen that can prevent a disease.”
“Currently, mRNA is considered a gene therapy product by the FDA. Unlike certain gene therapies that irreversibly alter cell DNA and could act as a source of side effects, mRNA based medicines are designed to not irreversibly change cell DNA; however, side effects observed in gene therapy could negatively impact the perception of mRNA medicines despite the differences in mechanism. In addition, because no product in which mRNA is the primary active ingredient has been approved, the regulatory pathway for approval is uncertain.”
“…our investigational medicines may have undesirable side effects, such as the immunogenicity of the LNPs or their components, the immunogenicity of the protein made by the mRNA, or degradation products, any of which could lead to serious adverse events, or SAEs, or other unexpected characteristics…”
“All of these vaccines have been declared countermeasures, and the PREP Act has been invoked by Donald Trump’s HHS Secretary Alex Azar. The PREP Act takes all liability away from the manufacturers of the vaccines. If they maim or kill anyone, no one can sue Moderna, AstraZeneca or Sanofi. The only legal compensation that may be available would come from the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program. This is not a real court, but rather a program setup and run by the federal government”
CDC’s coronavirus survival rate statistics:
ages 0-19: 99.997%, ages 20-49: 99.98%, ages 50-69: 99.5%, ages 70+: 94.6%.
“Even though the FDA granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for three COVID-19 vaccines, they are not FDA approved to treat, cure or prevent any disease at this time. Clinical trials will continue for at least two years before the FDA can even consider approval of these vaccines as effective and safe”
“The issue with mRNA and adenoviral vectored vaccines is that they all encode the spike protein, which is subject to mutations. They might work to reduce initial infection rates, but they also allow for recombinant mutations.”
“After people recover from infection with a virus, the immune system retains a memory of it. Immune cells and proteins that circulate in the body can recognize and kill the pathogen if it’s encountered again, protecting against disease and reducing illness severity”
“The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision.”
