Watch: ‘These mRNA products are qualitatively different from standard vaccines’: Editor of the British Medical Journal

Most Popular

Dr. Peter Doshi, senior editor of the British Medical Journal (The BMJ), says mRNA COVID ‘vaccines’ are ‘qualitatively different’ from normal childhood vaccines.

Dr. Doshi was speaking a recent conference on the issue of COVID vaccines.

Here’s a transcript of his statement:

I am one of the academics that argues that these mRNA products that everybody calls vaccines are qualitatively different than standard vaccines. And so I found it fascinating to learn that Merriam-Webster changed its definitive of vaccine early this year. mRNA products did not meet the definition of vaccine that has been in place for 15 years at Merriam-Webster. But the definition was expanded such that mRNA products are now vaccines.

I highlight this to ask a question. How would you feel about mandating COVID vaccines if we didn’t call them vaccines?

What is these injections were called ‘drugs’ instead?

So here’s the scenario: We have this ‘drug’, and we have evidence it doesn’t prevent infection, nor does it stop viral transmission. But the ‘drug’ is understood to reduce your risk of becoming very sick and dying of COVID.

Would you take a dose of this drug every six months for possibly the rest of your life, if that’s what it took for the drug to stay effective?

Would you not just take this drug yourself, but support regulations mandating that everybody else around you take this drug?

Or, would you say, ‘Hold on a sec.’ Maybe you’d say if that’s all the drug does, why not use a normal medicine instead, the kind we take when we’re sick and want to get better? And why would you mandate it?

The point is, just because we call it a vaccine, doesn’t mean we should just assume these new products are just like all other childhood vaccines which get mandated. Each product is a different product, and if people are ok with mandating something simply because it’s a ‘vaccine’ and we mandate other vaccines, so why shouldn’t we mandate this?

I think it’s time to inject some critical thinking into that conversation, and that is what I hope we are doing today. Thank you.
