FACTS on Your Right to Refuse COVID-19 Vaccination

The following is copied directly from the Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom website (check it out yourself):

Employer Mandates Not Allowed:  An employment legal group notes that the vaccines are not FDA-approved.1  Pfizer states that its vaccine is considered an “investigational drug” until it’s approved.2  This means, according to the government, that COVID-19 vaccines cannot be mandated:

“Dr. Amanda Cohn, the executive secretary of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, was asked if Covid-19 vaccination can be required, she responded that under an EUA [Emergency Use Authorization], “vaccines are not allowed to be mandatory. So, early in this vaccination phase, individuals will have to be consented and they won’t be able to be mandatory.”  Cohn later affirmed that this prohibition on requiring the vaccines applies to organizations, including hospitals. . . .This means that an organization will likely be at odds with federal law if it requires its employees, students or other members to get a Covid-19 vaccine that is being distributed under emergency use authorization.” (“Federal law prohibits employers and others from requiring vaccination with a Covid-19 vaccine distributed under an EUA,” STAT, 2/23/2021)3

Employers Still Liable Despite OSHA Action: In April 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) said employers are liable if vaccination is required as a condition of employment and injury or adverse effects occur. But one month later, OSHA said the agency “does not want to discourage workers from receiving COVID-19 vaccination, nor does it want to discourage employers’ vaccination efforts.” Thus, it suspended reporting requirements through May 2022. However, Liberty Counsel says these employers “can be held liable for adverse injuries and death.”4

Refusing Vaccination: 40% of the Marines have refused vaccination.5  A whopping 62.5% of staff at thousands of skilled nursing facilities have refused the vaccine.6 Fully 60% of 700 physicians surveyed are not vaccinated.7  Five out of 6 pregnant women are not vaccinated.8  In May, CDC Director Walensky testified to the U.S. Senate that the CDC does not require employees to report vaccination status.9   

Not a “Vaccine”: Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) says COVID-19 vaccines don’t prevent10 you from getting COVID, they only reduce symptoms.  11 This doesn’t meet the CDC’s definition of “vaccine.”12 

Global Experiment: Given that these investigational first-ever mRNA drugs only have “emergency use authorization,” Americans are participating in a global experiment.
13 Notably, a 2012 study of four coronavirus vaccine candidates found they made the virus more virulent in the bodies of the mice that had received the vaccine.14 Perhaps in reference to this study, in May 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose federal agency funded the 2012 study, told the U.S Senate that the COVID-19 vaccine could “backfire.”15


Injuries and Deaths:  As of June 14, 2021 the CDC reports 5,343 reported deaths post-vaccination.16  Since this is a voluntary system and many people may not know about to report these deaths, the numbers are likely higher. For example, in early February 2021, Kassidi Kurill, a 39-year old healthy surgical technician with no known health problems died four days after taking the second dose of the Moderna vaccine.17 Nearly 800 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis have been reported, with rates for 16-24 year olds significantly higher than typically seen in a year, 18 causing the CDC to hold an emergency
meeting on June 18.19 A 2007-2009 Harvard Pilgrim study found “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported.”20 Also, it’s not clear if antibody dependent enhancement (ADE),21 which makes a disease worse when the vaccinated contract the virus, is taking place. Might this be why 3,459 vaccinated individuals with “breakthrough COVID-19 infections” have been hospitalized or died?22


Not Suitable: A Cleveland Clinic study of 52,238 employees “provides direct evidence that vaccination with the best available vaccines does not provide additional protection in previously infected individuals.”23   Dr. Tess Lawrie, MBBCH, PhD, Director of the Evidence-based Medicine Consultancy Ltd, Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom • 161 St. Anthony Ave, Ste 923, St. Paul, MN • 651-646-8935 • info@cchfreedom.org 2 and an independent researcher for W.H.O. and the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) studied injury data and on June 9, 2021, sent a letter to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) saying: “The MHRA now has more than enough evidence on the Yellow Card system to declare the COVID-19 vaccines unsafe for use in humans.” To silence her, Twitter suspended her account.


Constitutional and Human Rights: The Constitution of the U.S. imposes limits on government power.24  Human rights, patient rights and the international Nuremberg Code against research without patient consent give Americans the right to refuse injection with a foreign substance that could harm or kill them, 25 Forced vaccination by government or employers is coercive, forcing individuals to get vaccinated—or lose their job or their personal freedom to engage in public life despite real risks of vaccine injury or death (The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid around $4.5 billion to vaccine-injured Americans or their families.26). Vaccine manufacturers are immune from litigation;27 employers are typically not. Some employers have already been sued, including Houston
Methodist Hospital by 117 health care workers28 and the employer of a couple with pregnancy concerns.29


Vaccine Unknowns: Long-term effects “may emerge after millions of people are immunized” 30  (clinical trials not completed until late 2022 or 202331); the impact on pregnant women and their unborn children because “there are limited data about current COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers”;32  how long the vaccine will be effective at reducing symptoms;33—and more.


False Positives and Inaccurate Definitions: Up to 90% of PCR test results are false positives, per The New York Times.34  Specimens that require more than 24 cycles to “find” the virus are not likely infective.35  See CCHF’s COVID-19 Update videos36 including “The Problem with the PCR Test” (video #31).37  Also, the CDC encouraged doctors to put COVID-19 on death certificates if the disease was presumed to be the cause,38  increasing “cases” and causing controversy.39  For example the Illinois Dept. of Health said a
“COVID-19 death” is anyone who died with a positive PCR test regardless of the actual cause of death.40  Portugal’s highest court has ruled that the PCR test results cannot be used to impose quarantine.41 

Proximity Study, Children and Schools: A December 2020 study discusses the difficulty of getting COVID-19 from others, even living in the same household. The study concludes that it is only 21.1% likely to get COVID-19 in a household (where there is regular ‘close contact’) and much less (3.5% and 12.8%) elsewhere.42  Given the fact that teachers spend most of the day with their children, not their colleagues, it’s possible that teachers and children could be considered close contacts. However, few children seem to be impacted negatively by the virus and are not considered to a primary source of the infection.43
