The following is a guest post by Mac the Knife. The word “vaccine” is initially in quotes not because of some conspiracy theory but because the COVID shots apparently neither convey immunity nor prevent inoculated people from spreading the disease. More accurate (and non-political) terms for them might be treatments or inoculations.

It all started when my newly found niece (a long story involving Ancestry.com), who works at a CVS pharmacy, sent me the Janssen COVID-19 “vaccine” Insert that I had requested.
It was a very thick document. After I unrolled it turned out to be both the size of an armchair and absolutely blank except for a small square of information directing the curious to a web site, www.vaxcheck.jnj.
Even when you go the their specified website, to find the information that would normally be printed on the package insert you have to click on “Continue,” then click on the two dialog boxes on the right for Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers and Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers Administering Vaccine.” (Both are available in multiple languages)
I never did learn why none of this was printed on that colossal, outsized blank sheet. Maybe because it still isn’t colossal and outsized enough, or perhaps because its contents keep changing faster than print can handle?
You may also wonder why Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine is called the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine. Janssen Pharmaceuticals is headquartered in Beerse, Belgium, and owned by Johnson & Johnson, which acquired the company in 1961.
I decided to keep investigating, focusing on what ingredients the three inoculations given Emergency Use Authorization in the U.S. contain and what placebos were used in the trials.
The ingredients for the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine are:
recombinant, replication-incompetent adenovirus type 26 expressing the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, citric acid monohydrate, trisodium citrate dihydrate, ethanol, 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HBCD), polysorbate-80, sodium chloride.
The ingredients for the Pfizer-BioNTechCOVID-19 Vaccine are:
mRNA, lipids ((4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate), 2
[(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide, 1,2-Distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-
phosphocholine, and cholesterol), potassium chloride, monobasic potassium
phosphate, sodium chloride, dibasic sodium phosphate dihydrate, and sucrose.
The ingredients for the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine are:
messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), lipids (SM-102, polyethylene glycol [PEG] 2000 dimyristoyl glycerol [DMG], cholesterol, and 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine [DSPC]), tromethamine, tromethamine hydrochloride, acetic acid, sodium acetate trihydrate, and sucrose.
You can use the following two web sites to find out more about the properties of the ingredients in the vaccines.
PubChem gives you a great deal of information about the chemicals and also provides a link to PubMed on some of the chemicals if they were used in medical studies. PubMed has a log-in Button, but I have found that you can search without creating an account.
The next roadblock I ran into was trying to find what placebos were used in the vaccine trials. Here are two very interesting articles about those placebos. “Placebos Used in Vaccine Trials Do Not Please Everyone” and “TIDieR-Placebo: A guide and checklist for reporting placebo and sham controls.”
From the first article:
So now we arrive at a particularly tricky example: a trial where, by all indications, a saline placebo should be used but is not. A team in the United Kingdom is conducting a trial of a new COVID-19 vaccine (charmingly called ChAdOx1 nCOV-19) and they are comparing it not to a saline injection but to a vaccine against meningitis. It has been reported as the only frontrunner for a COVID-19 vaccine that is not using a true placebo as a control.
The World Health Organization’s expert panel on placebos used in vaccine trials does underscore the validity of using a different vaccine as a control (one whose safety is well characterized), but notes that it “may also be less acceptable to regulators or public health authorities and potentially delay approval or adoption of a new vaccine.” I reached out to the team conducting the UK trial and was told the reason they changed their mind from using a saline injection to using the meningitis vaccine was that saline injections don’t cause a sore arm, which might unwittingly reveal to the volunteers what group they are in. No soreness after the injection? You may have received a placebo, which could alter your behavior and thus add a nasty variable to explain away the results of the trial. Emphasis added by me.
According to the trial results for the three vaccines it looks like they do not use a saline placebo. They all report redness, pain, and swelling at the injection site for their placebo group, which indicates they did not use a saline placebo. I could not find anywhere what the placebo consisted of. If you want to see the trial results for each vaccine you have to scroll down to near the bottom of the second document listed for each vaccine.
Has the COVID-19 virus been completely isolated? The answer as far as I can tell is no. A letter (scroll down) to The BMJ (wholly owned by the British Medical Association) on 12 October 2020 asks:
We are told that the virus is everywhere – in the air, in our breath, on fomites, trapped in masks — yet public health authorities seem not to be in possession of any cultivable clinical samples of the offending pathogen.
In March 2020, the World Health Organization instructed authorities not to look for a virus but to rely instead on a genome test, the RT-PCR, which is not specific for SARS-CoV-2.
A Freedom of Information request to Public Health England about cultivable clinical samples or direct evidence of viral isolation has no information and refers to the proxy RT-PCR test, quoting Eurosurveillance.
Eurosurveillance states: “Virus detection by reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) from respiratory samples is widely used to diagnose and monitor SARS-CoV-2 infection and, increasingly, to infer infectivity of an individual. However, RT-PCR does not distinguish between infectious and non-infectious virus. Propagating virus from clinical samples confirms the presence of infectious virus but is not widely available (and) requires biosafety level 3 facilities.”
The CDC admits that, “no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available”, and used a genetically modified human lung alveolar adenocarcinoma cell culture to, “mimic clinical specimen.”
It appears, therefore, that we have public health bodies without clinical samples, a test which is non-specific and does not distinguish between infectivity and non-infectivity, a requirement for biosafety level 3 facilities to even look for a virus, yet we are led to believe that it is up all our noses.
So, where is the virus?
(ED. NOTE: The original of the letter contains footnotes not reproduced here. See link above to read them.)
The CDC also admits that they have not isolated the COVID-19 virus. And I have not found anything to the contrary. Go to the section on “Performance Characteristics of the Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Test” on page 43 to read the following:
Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV were available for CDC use at the time the test was developed and this study conducted, assays designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA (N gene; GenBank accession: MN908947.2) of known titer (RNA copies/µL) spiked into a diluent consisting of a suspension of human A549 cells and viral transport medium (VTM) to mimic clinical specimen.
I realize this is a lot of information to digest and people have to make their own decisions. For myself, I am 76 years old, healthy, and I will not accept any of these experimental vaccines. If they try to force me it will not turn out well for them.
That’s the end of Mac the Knife’s observations. I’m sure I speak for us both when I say your input is welcome. I have many friends who’ve accepted the vaccines, usually because they have older relatives or friends at high risk for COVID complications. My own choice is to avoid the shots until long-term testing has been conducted and/or we see the long-term consequences of their use in real life. If forced to accept any of the available choices (for instance, if everyday life became impossible without it), I’d go for the Johnson & Johnson. That’s just me. OTOH, the mRNA vaccines are not only inadequately tested, but mRNA technology itself has a history of hopeful efforts followed by bad-to-disastrous results.
