The COVID-19 vaccines that were rushed to market have serious problems. This will become more clear over time, and the fallout will be devastating.
Meanwhile, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has recommended people get vaccinated, and many people have done so. I have no problem with this recommendation. The Church has always recommended vaccination with past vaccines. The Church is anxious to keep temples open and to continue the work of the Gospel. There are many high-risk people who should get vaccinated.
Regardless of what happens with the vaccines, and as I say the information coming out is very negative, the Church is still true. The prophet is still the prophet. Nothing has changed. I want to make sure that I make it clear that my faith does not depend on the Church’s position on COVID vaccines. Your faith should not depend on that either.
In the meantime, it is important that readers of this blog are aware of the problems with the vaccines so they are prepared.
I already warned in this recent post that the antibody protection provided by the vaccines is fading, and in many locations there are more cases of the virus and hospitalizations and deaths among the vaccinated than the unvaccinated.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg.
The Senate held a hearing today on adverse reactions to the COVID 19 vaccines. Here is a partial list of people who testified:
