Why Many People Are Not Taking The Covid-19 Vaccine
Or Why Maybe They Shouldn’t
In this private paper on ‘Why Many Are Not Taking The Vaccine‘, you’ll find dozens of links, many videos, and resources supporting the decisions by many on not taking the Covid-19 vaccine.
While not the kind of article I generally publish here on brianDhawkins.com (Because I didn’t write it), I decided to post this Op-Ed / Commentary paper by someone we’ll just call, ‘PS‘ (For Protected Source).
The article/paper PS wrote and gave us permission to republish was originally titled, “Why I’m Not Taking The Vaccine“. He re-titled the article after removing his personal information and now, with a ton of supporting links, it comes as close to a research guide on why not to get the vaccine as I’ve seen.
For the record, I (This is Brian here), am NOT anti-vaccine. I am for freedom and believe people should have the personal choice to decide what goes into their body, whether it’s a harmful narcotic or a vaccine. Especially a vaccine that’s killed so many, according to this US government source. Anyway, I digress.
This paper in no way, shape, or form is published here to convince you to get the shot/s or not to get the shot/s. It’s simply PS’ personal research he compiled in order to make his own decision and was generous enough to share it publically. I felt it important to see the ‘stifled‘ side so here it is.

The following is the article, by PS:
Why Many Are Not Taking The Vaccine
October 5, 2021
It seems like everywhere you go the COVID vaccine is on everyone’s mind.
“Have you gotten the vaccine?”
“When are you going to get the vaccine?”
“Why won’t you get the vaccine?
For those individuals who get their news from mainstream media (CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, etc.) not getting the vaccine seems crazy.
They don’t have the opportunity to look at other sources of information. Let’s rephrase that. They don’t take the opportunity to investigate other sources.
The news outlets mentioned along with Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube go as far as to censor any negative news about the vaccine. If you say something they don’t like and you are banned from the platform.
Any negative comments or stories about the vaccine are labeled misinformation and removed from circulation. It is easy to understand why these same people see the vaccine as the only solution to ending the pandemic.
All they hear is that the vaccine is working wonderfully. Once you get the vaccine, you can’t get the virus.
All those unvaccinated people are the reason the virus continues to flourish and spread. These comments are not true and must be confronted with factual arguments.
He said, she said will not work. It will not change the minds of those that support vaccination of the entire population.
The truth about the vaccine must be communicated through other channels. Those of us who have seen the other side of the story must tell it to anyone who will listen. To support those individuals who refuse to take the vaccine the information that follows was prepared.
The paper references articles and studies on COVID and the vaccine. This document can serve as the basis for a sound argument for not taking the vaccine.
Detractors could throw comparable articles and studies in your face that tell a completely opposite story.
That’s the point. No one knows for sure. We are all guessing. When you review an article or study, you must look at the source.
Who wrote the article? Who did the study? In the case of studies, it is even more important to look at who funded the study. As the saying goes,
“You give me the results you want, and I will give you the study you need.”
The authors and investigators of the studies referenced are credible. Yes, many are found on right-leaning sites. That doesn’t make them wrong.
You will find pro-vaccine articles as well as anti-vaccine articles on the same site. A free flow of information is not only allowed it is encouraged.
Informed decisions can be made as a result. It is important that we not criticize those that have chosen to take the vaccine. For them, it was the correct choice. It was a personal choice. We should in turn ask for the same courtesy from them.
The vaccine has become a political football. People are trying to make it a left versus right issue.
When President Trump was in office, many left-leaning individuals said they would never take the “Trump vaccine.” Now that he is no longer president, they are running to it like it was the best thing ever.
People turned against the use of Hydroxychloroquine simply because President Trump said it may be a useful tool to fight COVID.
This was totally a political decision.
Information in this paper will show that hydroxychloroquine is an effective tool in the treatment of COVID.
It’s time to take politics out of the COVID battle and focus on the things that can be done to end this nightmare.
Before you take a deep dive into the information below it is recommended that you take the time to view the following presentation:
This is a long video (1-1/2 hours) but well worth viewing. Dr. McCullough gives a tremendous amount of information regarding the virus, the vaccines, and the treatment regimens that are being used or ignored.
If the only thing you get out of this paper is the chance to look at this video, then the paper has served its purpose.
Five Issues Regarding COVID And The Vaccines
Five issues regarding COVID and the vaccines are going to be examined. They are the survival rate from COVID, the deaths and injuries resulting from the vaccine, natural immunity, and the failure of the vaccines to work as advertised.
The issues are intertwined so you will find information regarding each issue within the discussion of specific topics.
The fifth issue is the failure of many in the medical profession to prescribe Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin in the early stages of infection. Also, the failed use of Remdesivir to treat COVID patients.
Why Take A Vaccine For A Virus With Such A High Survival Rate?
Survival rates from COVID vary from study to study but only slightly. In most age groups the survival rate is well above 95%.
The author will comment on a few of the studies. At the end of this section and each subsequent section, additional links will be noted that discuss the specific topic under review.
This video/link [above] gives current estimates from the Centers for Disease Control. It does not include people over 80 years old. The survival rates shown in this article are:
0-19 years 99.997%
20-49 years 99.98%
50-69 years 99.5%
70+ years 94.6%
80+ years not included
Stanford Study on Covid Infection Fatality Rates
This link [Below] refers to a Stanford University study that gave similar numbers. It references the Infection Fatality Rate (IFR).
The following is taken directly from the article:
To put these numbers into perspective, out of 100,000 kids aged 0-19 who are infected by Covid-19, around three will die from it. For every 100 people over the age of 70 who are infected by Covid-19, around five will die from it. The difference in how Covid-19 affects different ages is exponential.
[The paper by PS included more quotes but I had to omit most of them. I’m limited on how much content I’m permitted to ‘quote’ before it becomes a copy write issue. Here’s that link again so you can see the complete article PS linked to.]
The formula used to calculate mortality rates ([the] number of deaths divided by the number of COVID cases) is full of issues.
The deaths from COVID have been misstated. If anyone goes to the hospital with a condition other than COVID (heart failure, cancer, etc.) and is tested and found to be COVID positive will be considered a COVID death even if the real reason for the death was the heart failure, cancer, etc.
This means the numerator in the formula is too high resulting in a higher mortality rate.
The number of actual COVID cases is greatly understated. Many people get COVID and have mild symptoms. They self-medicated and never even go to a doctor. This means the denominator in the formula is too low, again resulting in a higher mortality rate.
Here are other articles regarding survival rates from COVID:
Why Take A Vaccine That Can Cause Death Or Injury?
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is data populated by the CDC. As of September 17, 2021, the system reported 726,965 adverse events following COVID vaccinations.
This data included 15,386 reports of death. The
following table is from the link noted below:
European Countries are reporting deaths and injuries from the vaccine as well.
This article [Above] states:
“More than 2 million adverse events and 21,000 deaths have been reported to a European Union (EU) drug reaction database following the use of currently available COVID jabs.”
The number of deaths is understated. Everyone including the federal government is trying to hide the true number of deaths and injuries resulting from the vaccine. The CDC does not consider someone dying from the vaccine if they die within 14 days of the individual taking the shot.
The above article states:
“Do you want to know why 14 days is important?” he asked. “Because if you die with 14 days, you’re not considered vaccinated.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one is not considered as being “vaccinated” until 14 days after their completed injection regimen, raising the question of whether government authorities have been classifying these fatalities as something other than vaccination-related deaths.
Numerous side effects have been identified. The article noted below lists 10 of those known potential side effects.
The list includes:
- Death by anaphylaxis
- Production of spike protein
- Spike proteins cross the blood brain barrier
- Blood clots
- Heart inflammation
- ADE – Antibody Dependent Enhancement
- DNA Mutation
- Neurologic Degeneration
No one knows the long-term effects of the vaccine. It is too new. The articles and studies that have been reviewed, however, paint a very bad picture of the long-term effects of the vaccine.
The study [linked] below shows that the vaccine can cause serious heart problems.
The following comments are taken from this article:
“A shocking new study that was conducted by researchers at Canada’s University of Ottawa Heart Institute found that one out of every thousand(1/1000) mRNA Covid-19 vaccinations causes heart inflammation(myopericarditis) to develop rapidly in otherwise healthy individuals.”
“If the results are true, it would actually be more of a risk for anyone under 65 to receive the shot than it would be to contract the virus and recover, especially depending on how young they are. Myocarditis and pericarditis both come with an extremely poor prognosis and end up killing over 50% within 3-10 years of their diagnosis.”
“In other words, the chances that covid will kill you if you are under 50 are almost 6x lower than the chances you will develop a debilitating (and often fatal in the long run) heart condition. Even more shocking – people under 40 who take the jab are almost 13.5 times more likely to develop some form of myocarditis or pericarditis than to be killed by Covid. Keep in mind the median age from this study was 33.”
The article below highlights the increase in heart inflammation due to the vaccines causing blood clotting:
Noted in the article:[Sorry, I had to remove a lot of the quoted content again. Be sure to check out the article.]
We can now understand, thanks to Covid-vaccine scientists who recently blew the whistle, that a higher-than-usual blood clot risk exists for these cases of inflammation of the heart, as it’s over-worked to push blood past all these ‘road blocks’ of proteins, prions and disease-mimicking fragments floating around in the blood channels, sticking to inner walls of vessels, causing damage and severe inflammation.
Covid-19 mRNA vaccines instruct your cells to produce unlimited proteins and prions that clog the blood and CAUSE heart inflammation.
The article below highlights another study that talks about the permanent damage the vaccine will cause:
“Editor’s Commentary: Did you know the Moderna Covid-19 “vaccine’ contains 40 trillion mRNA molecules in each injection? How about the fact that only a quarter of those mRNA molecules remain in the recipient’s arm with the rest being transported to other parts of the body, including vulnerable areas like the brain, heart, and lungs? Neither of these facts have been shared by Big Pharma, though they’re well aware of them.”
“The spike protein in the vaccine can lead to the development of multiple, tiny blood clots because it becomes part of the cell wall of your vascular endothelium; these cells are supposed to be smooth so that your blood flows smoothly, but the spike protein means there are ‘spiky bits sticking out’
“Hoffe has been conducting the D-dimer test on his patients to detect the potential presence of blood clots within four to seven days of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine; 62% have evidence of clotting. The long-term outlook is very grim, Hoffe said, because with each successive shot, it will add more damage as you’re getting more damaged capillaries”
The article below references a science journal that claims the Pfizer vaccine may cause neurodegenerative diseases:
The article states:
“The RNA sequence of the vaccine as well as the spike protein target interaction were analyzed for the potential to convert intracellular RNA binding proteins TAR DNA binding protein (TDP-43) and Fused in Sarcoma (FUS) into their pathologic prion conformations. The results indicate that the vaccine RNA has specific sequences that may induce TDP-43 and FUS to fold into their pathologic prion confirmations.”
Why Take A Vaccine That Doesn’t Work As Advertised?
Vaccines are not working as advertised. Many will tell you that the unvaccinated are the problem now. According to many of the reports below that does not appear to be the case.
Breakthrough cases are numerous.
The vaccine doesn’t protect you from getting the virus. They may tell you it reduces the effects of the virus if you get infected after having received the vaccine. But with such a high survival rate to begin with why do you need the vaccine?
In a presentation on the senate floor Senator Ron Johnson provided data that showed 63% of the COVID deaths in the UK in the last 7.5 months were fully vaccinated people.
It is not a pandemic of the unvaccinated.
Even the CDC admits the vaccines can’t stop the transmission of the virus.
The article [Above] states:
“Rochelle Walensky, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, appeared on CNN in August and admitted that COVID-19 vaccines cannot prevent the transmission of COVID-19, citing the delta variant.
Walensky said that the controversial vaccines are working ‘exceptionally well’ at keeping people from experiencing severe illness and death after they contract COVID-19, but admits, ‘what they can’t do anymore is prevent transmission.”
The article below discusses breakthrough cases In Wales UK. Similar reports can be found in other places.
The article [Above] states that:
“According to the most recent data that was released by public health officials in Wales, UK, vaccinated Individuals accounted for a whopping 87% of all new Covid hospitalizations last week – even though 69% of the citizens are considered ‘fully vaccinated.”
“The data also revealed that 99% of positive tests were from people under the age of 60 and that 63% of the total were vaccinated.”
This article notes that the fully vaccinated carry 251 times the COVID viral load as the unvaccinated:
The article [Above] states:
“Vaccinated individuals are blasting out concentrated viral explosions into their communities and fueling new Covid surges. Vaccinated healthcare workers are almost certainly infecting their co-workers and patients, causing horrendous collateral damage.”
The article below gives information regarding the failure of the vaccines. Research was conducted by The Cleveland Clinic and Washington University.
The article [Above] listed eight reasons not to take the vaccine. They are:
Top eight reasons NOT to get a Covid vaccine:
- Shots provide zero immunity to Covid.
- Shots don’t stop transmission of Covid.
- Shots are NOT proven to keep you from getting a “bad case” of Covid.
- Shots are dangerous, with common side effects of blood clots and myocarditis.
- Shot effectiveness, if any, wanes within a few months.
- Booster shots are even more dangerous, introducing billions MORE prions into the bloodstream, brain, heart, and vital cleansing organs.
- Natural immunity is far more powerful than anything the vaccines might deliver and it’s much longer lasting.
- The Covid vaccines wipe out any natural immunity and destroy all the antibodies your body already created.
Below are three video presentations that discuss the dangers of the vaccine:
After reviewing the information gathered, many believe the vaccine is more dangerous than the virus itself. Below are additional articles that provide information regarding the safety of the vaccines. These articles have not referenced them in the body of this paper.
Why Take A Vaccine When You Have Natural Immunity?
Natural immunity makes no one any money! That is why the government and pharmaceutical companies ignore it. Natural immunity is the best way to defeat COVID. This portion of the paper deals with natural immunity.
Laced into the discussion is the fact that COVID vaccines don’t work as advertised. In fact, they are more dangerous than the virus itself.
Harvard University did a study that indicated natural immunity was 27 times more effective against the delta variant than vaccines.
The study showed “that people who are vaccinated are 27 times more likely to get a COVID infection that is symptomatic than someone who has developed natural immunity.”
A similar result was found in an Israeli study:
The article makes several comments:
“Natural immunity from contracting coronavirus provided Israelis with longer-lasting protection against the Delta variant than two shots of the Pfizer vaccine given early this year, new Israeli research suggests.”
“The study by Maccabi Healthcare Service looked at individuals who had either gotten two shots of the vaccine by the end of February or tested positive for COVID-19 by that time.”
“People who had two vaccine shots had a six-fold higher chance of getting infected with Delta than patients who hadn’t been vaccinated but previously contracted the coronavirus, according to the research.”
“The vaccine-dependent people had a seven-fold higher chance of symptomatic infection, and a 6.7-fold higher chance of being hospitalized.”
Even a Pfizer board member acknowledges the importance of taking natural immunity into consideration when determining vaccine policies:
The board member, also a former Food and Drug Administration commissioner is referenced in comments from the article:
“Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, who is a Pfizer board member, noted that natural immunity gained from a prior COVID-19 infection needs to be included in discussions about policies and mandates.
‘The balance of the evidence demonstrates that natural immunity confers a durable protection,’ Gottlieb said during a Monday morning TV interview, referring to a landmark new preprint Israeli study that found prior COVID-19 infection confers much more protection against the virus than any vaccine.
‘It’s fair to conclude that,’ he said.”
Three Scientists who work for Pfizer were caught by Project Veritas acknowledging that natural immunity leads to better protection compared to the vaccine.
“Project Veritas released the fourth video in its COVID vaccine investigative series today which exposed three Pfizer officials saying that antibodies lead to equal, if not better, protection against the virus compared to the vaccine.”
The link below lists 15 studies that indicate natural immunity is better than COVID vaccines. Comments won’t be pulled from these studies. You can review them on your own if interested.
Below are additional articles on natural immunity:
Why are we waiting to treat patients before they are hospitalized? Are the wrong treatments being used?
From what the author have been able to discern, doctors are refusing to treat COVID infected patients before they are hospitalized. Many are refusing to prescribe Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin in the early stages of the infection. Other over the counter aides such as zinc are also not being aggressively recommended. Once they are hospitalized, many patients are put on Remdesivir which according to Dr. McCullough (in long video mention earlier in this paper) is doing more damage than good.
The article below discusses the use of Hydroxychloroquine and zinc to treat COVID:
In this article [Above], Dr. Harvey A. Risch is quoted. He states:
“I have authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently hold senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals.
I am usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine, so have been flummoxed to find that, in the midst of a crisis, I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines.
As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily. I am referring, of course, to the medication hydroxychloroquine.”
In India one area of the country is reporting tremendous success using Ivermectin:
The article states:
“The state of Uttar Pradesh in India, which has the equivalent of two-thirds of the United States population, has been declared COVID-free, the state government announced last week.
There are no more active cases of coronavirus in the 33 districts of Uttar Pradesh, which has a population of 241 million people. ‘Overall, the state has a total of 199 active cases, while the positivity rate came down to less than 0.01 percent. The recovery rate, meanwhile, has improved to 98.7 percent,’ Hindustan Times reported.”
“The answer is likely because of the government’s early use and distribution of ivermectin to its citizens.”
In Africa similar success has been achieved using Ivermectin.
This article provides a graph that compares areas of Africa where Ivermectin was used and areas where it was not used.
Instead of hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin many COVID patients were given Remdesivir. Dr. McCullough pointed out the dangers of using Remdesivir in the long video mentioned earlier.
The article below also confirms that mistake:
This article states:
“After proving that over 45K people have died from the COVID-19 vaccine, Attorney Renz then shifted his attention to the number of people who are being killed in American hospitals by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s mandated Remdesivir protocol.”
The Remdesivir data reveal that:
- 2,058 of the 7,960 Medicare beneficiaries prescribed Remdesivir to treat COVID-19 have died. That is an unconscionable 25.9%.
- 46% of people died within 14 days of the Remdesivir Treatment.
- Serious adverse events were reported in 131 of the 532 patients who received Remdesivir. That is 24.6%.
The link below discusses the increased risk of hospitalization when Remdesivir is used:
The article states:
“One of the known side effects of Tony Fauci’s remdesivir drug for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is that it damages the kidneys and potentially causes renal failure. Well, it turns out that end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is the greatest risk factor for ‘fully vaccinated’ patients to experience a ‘breakthrough” infection.”
The End – NOT!
The purpose of the document was to point out issues that exist with the COVID virus, the vaccine, and the treatments prescribed.
The manner in which our government and the mainstream media is managing it leaves us with no choice but to do our own research. Hopefully, this document will add you in that effort.
The document is an ongoing project. Additional studies and comments will be added as they become available. The COVID vaccine has created more questions than answers. Is it the lifesaver the mainstream media wants us to believe it is?
Is it a terrible mistake that is going to cause long-term health issues for those that have taken the shot? Only time will tell the true impact of the COVID vaccine.
Regrettably, we may all be forced to take it at some point. This vaccine is a true unknown. Please hope and pray that it works out well for everyone.

Okay, I’d like to thank PS for allowing me to publish his paper and share it with you. I do want to mention because I hate courtrooms, publishing this opinion / OpEd piece, in no way shows I support or endorse the content or message.
I just believe that everyone should be allowed to voice their opinion and when someone takes the time to research and document a paper like this, I’m happy to host it.
With that said, I TRIED to leave the paper ‘as is’ but due to the web format and legal reasons, I had to omit a few quotes. I did embed many of the links PS provided to offer an easier format to digest. I also embedded videos and a tweet for that same reason. For a few of those I had to search for a better source but the content is the same.
