In an address to a meeting on June 17, 2021, Prof. Sucharit Bhakdi discussed the latest findings relevant to COVID-19 vaccine science, and what they mean for the safety, legality and ethics of the COVID-19 vaccination program.
During the meeting, Prof. Bhakdi described recent developments regarding circulating spike protein following vaccination, accumulation of vaccine in the ovaries, mechanisms of vaccine-induced blood clotting, immune auto-attack, and longer term immune enhancement of disease.
- A study published on 20 May 2021 , which shows that the clot-inducing spike protein and S1 spike component are found in the circulation following vaccination. This implicates the endothelial cells – the cells which line the blood vessel walls – in spike protein production, as already hypothesised by the Doctors for Covid Ethics in February 2021
- AstraZeneca’s ‘Red Hand’ letter , distributed by AstraZeneca to pharmacists in Germany, advising them that clotting abnormalities should be investigated in vaccinated people who show symptoms such as headaches and blurred vision, again as Doctors for Covid Ethics had previously warned
- A study on fibrin D-dimers currently underway, in collaboration with Doctors for Covid Ethics, to investigate blood clotting induced by vaccination
- Pfizer’s pharmacokinetic studies, submitted to the Japanese government, which reveal that Pfizer knew all along that the vaccine accumulates in organs throughout the body in rats, including the ovaries and the testes, with potentially profound implications for fertility 
- A Danish study showing that those who have had the COVID-19 infection, including in the mildest form, show strong memory-type antibody and T-cell responses . These findings not only render vaccination unnecessary, but indicate that it confers grave risks of immune auto-attack, and life-threatening side effects in those previously infected
- Four main immune and blood-related categories of risks from vaccines: (1) Clotting from the direct action of spike protein in the bloodstream; (2) Further clotting from the immune system attacking spike-producing endothelial cells; (3) Longer-term harm from damage caused by spike protein in the organs, such as a mother’s killer T-cells attacking her placenta, and (4) Immune-dependent enhancement of disease, as antibodies and lymphocytes overstimulated by vaccines cause the body’s response to coronaviruses – rather than the original virus itself, or its variants – to cause increasingly severe, and sometimes lethal, illness.
Professor Bhakdi concluded, “It is not allowed by any law in the world to administer a life-threatening agent in order to prevent another danger. You cannot exchange a life for a life.”
