Adverse Effects of mRNA Vaccines Were Known Before COVID-19: Medical Doctor

Complications and adverse reactions that occur after administering mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were anticipated by doctors based on data and studies going back 15 years, said Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet.

When the COVID-19 vaccines were launched, it was already known that the toxicity of the spike protein and the toxicity of another component of the vaccine could cause complications such as inflammation, blood clots and impaired immune system, Vliet said in an interview. recent for EpochTV’s “CrossingProgram.

“During the first six months after the COVID-19 vaccines were implemented, I had a whole range of patients with all kinds of problems that they had not had before,” he said, adding that the only common denominator of these cases was that everyone had the vaccines against COVID-19.

Vliet runs an independent medical practice.

“Most of these people are people who have been my patients for 20 or 25 years. I even have some that I have seen for 30 years. And I knew his medical history,” he said.

Among the disorders that Vliet observed in his patients were cognitive problems, memory loss, brain fog, mini-strokes, dizziness, vertigo, tinnitus, and falling episodes.

The doctor mentioned two of her patients, a couple in their 70s who were healthy and fit and exercised regularly, walking 7 miles a day. They got vaccinated against COVID-19 so they could travel to see their children and grandchildren.

Since then, the woman’s cardiac arrhythmia has been out of control and the man began having falling episodes that resulted in a hip fracture, Vliet said.

COVID-19 treatment

Vliet said his practice is guided by a basic principle he learned in medical school: If what you’re doing is working, keep doing it. If what you’re doing isn’t working, stop doing it.

“And if the patient has new health problems, right after you’ve given them a treatment, a drug or an injection, then think of that as the connecting link,” he said.

“Those principles are common sense. It’s basic medicine 101… and it’s been that way my entire career.”

Doctors typically stop giving a drug when a patient shows side effects they didn’t have before, to see if those reactions resolve, Vliet said. “The same goes for any vaccine.”

“I have seen patients throughout my career who have had adverse reactions to all the different vaccines,” Vliet said, adding that she has been vaccinated herself in the past and has not experienced any adverse reactions.

“I have appropriately recommended them to patients throughout my career. But there are also times when vaccinations are simply not necessary. COVID was one of those.”

COVID-19 was not a lethal disease for those under 50 without medical comorbidities, Vliet said. And for those over 50 or with medical comorbidities, Vliet used early treatment and the disease “was very treatable,” he said.

Vliet said he used a combination of older, safer medications recommended by Drs. Vladimir Zelenko and Peter McCullough as of March 2020.

“None of my patients went to the hospital. I didn’t cause anyone to die,” she said. She had some older patients with diabetes, obesity and other medical conditions who were quite ill with COVID-19, but she kept them out of the hospital with an aggressive combination of drug therapies recommended by McCullough.

“So vaccines are not always the answer to all problems,” he said, adding that for COVID-19, early treatment was the best answer.

But the government and political agenda cracked down and persecuted doctors who treated patients early with older, safer drugs, Vliet said.

Zelenko, a practicing physician in Monroe, New York, had treated 3,000 patients with COVID-19 symptoms with the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, and zinc sulfate, and only three of his patients with high-risk conditions had died. Dr Joseph Mercola wrote for The Epoch Times.

McCullough, a cardiologist, internist, epidemiologist, and advocate for early treatment of COVID-19, has co-authored two scientific papers on the topic of early treatment of COVID-19, and the second “became the basis for a home treatment guide,” Mercola wrote.

How to treat vaccine injuries

To help people suffering from vaccine injuriesthe Truth Foundation for Health prepared an educational brochure that explains adverse reactions to vaccines and treatment options, said Vliet, who also works pro bono as the foundation’s president and CEO.

Treatments include a combination of prescription drugs, nutraceuticals, supplements, foods, neuroprotection, immune boosters and also lifestyle changes, Vliet said, adding that he uses this combined approach to treat his patients, with positive results.

“One of the foundational drugs that has had tremendous benefits for the patients I’m treating, for example, is hydroxychloroquine,” Vliet said, “because it’s anti-inflammatory, it’s an immune modulator, it’s antiviral.”

“Never in the history of the vaccination program around the world, have we had an experimental injection that crosses the blood-brain barrier, enters the brain itself and enters the nervous system,” Vliet said.

“These COVID gene therapy injections do that,” he said. “They also cross the placental barrier…so it’s understandable why these experimental gene therapy injections are causing so much damage to developing babies in the womb, to the brain and central nervous system in children and adults.”

Because doctors understand how vaccines work, they can use existing drugs to treat side effects, Vliet explained.


The Truth for Health Foundation is filing two lawsuits in federal court alleging illegal orders and injunctions for experimental products, Vliet said.

“All test, mask and vaccine products are emergency use authorization only. None of them are FDA approved for COVID. That means it’s illegal to demand any of these US products.”

Healthcare workers recently reached a $10 million settlement against their employer over the COVID-19 vaccination mandate, Vliet said. Private employers don’t have the same liability protection that the government and vaccine manufacturers do, she explained.

“That case has opened the door for thousands more lawsuits against private employers who have implemented these mandates and cost people their jobs,” he said.

About a dozen workers at NorthShore University Health System in Illinois filed suit in October 2021, arguing that the facility was illegally denying religious exemptions to the mandate. In July, the litigants agreed to settle this case.

Under the terms of the agreement, NorthShore will pay $10.3 million into a settlement fund for workers affected by its mandate, specifically, workers who requested and were denied religious accommodations and received a vaccination to avoid layoff or were fired or quit their jobs. About 473 workers fit into that category.

The company also agreed to rehire employees who were fired for not getting vaccinated due to their religious beliefs.

Vaccine Injury Reporting

There is a government system for collecting data on adverse reactions to all vaccines called the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), but entering data into the system is complicated and time consuming.

Additionally, only about 10 percent of all vaccine adverse events are reported in VAERS, as estimated in 2012 by Harvard researchers, even though data on adverse events can be entered by anyone and must be reported by health professionals. certain types of side effects. Vliet said.

Therefore, the Truth for Health Foundation has created its own Citizen Vaccine Injury Reporting Systemwhere people can “easily and quickly” report their injury even from a mobile device, Vliet said.

Once the data is accumulated, the foundation’s medical advisory panel of scientists, doctors and epidemiologists will help analyze the data, and reports produced based on the data collected will be made public, Vliet said.
