so if it is so rare to have a reaction and the numbers are very low. How about you tell us the number and WE will yell you if it's high or low.

As far as the fact he is saying very few deaths to the vaccine, that is because the government will not pay for the autopsies on the suspected victims where as in a trial drug they would be. Autopsies are extremely expensive so some doctors have had to take it upon themselves to perform and pay for them out of concern. Also, how in the world can he suggest it is ok for a pregnant woman to get the vaccine and for them to know it doesn't affect the baby? it has not been long enough. If not for the loop hole the government set up we would be seeing as all over the tv in a few years from lawyers " if you suspect your baby's birth defects are from the covid vaccine call us." We are the guinea pigs. If someone is comfortable with that it is their choice, I'm just not.

Im sorry, Dr. or not, the "vaccines" were produced in a few months, clinical studies done, probably. However, NO ONE KNOWS what long term effects will arise. Only thru verifying side effects from now and into the future, will we be able to determine long term effects.. I also believe its irresponsible for ANYONE to say there are NO LONG TERM EFFECTS, because we have no long term studies
