Sen. Ron Johnson: 'State of Denial' Taking Place on Vaccine Effects

Medical professionals and public health officials shouldn't be in a "state of denial" that there are some people suffering from serious effects from COVID-19 vaccinations, Sen. Ron Johnson said on Newsmax Tuesday.

"I am pro-vaccine," the Wisconsin Republican said on Newsmax's "National Report." "I was a big supporter of Operation Warp Speed. I acknowledge that more than 300 million doses have been administered, most of those without side effects. But I also don't believe we should be in a state of denial."

Johnson was on the program with Missouri dental hygienist Kristi Dobbs, who says she has been suffering from a wide range of ailments after getting her Pfizer vaccines in January.

I had an immediate reaction at the hospital clinic where the vaccine was administered," Dobbs told Newsmax, noting she was monitored for heart palpitations and high blood pressure and that she still suffers from those issues months later.

"I have tremors in my hands where I can't keep my hands still," Dobbs said. "I have this internal vibration that feels like I have a cell phone stuck inside of me on vibrate all the time. (I have) extreme fatigue, brain fog, swollen lymph nodes, loss of appetite that caused weight loss, problems with temperature regulation, muscle pain, muscle weakness, unexplained skin rashes, and some problems with hypertension and blood pressure. (There are also) nocturnal nighttime convulsions, and irregular menstrual cycles."

Johnson told Newsmax that people like Dobbs deserve to be taken seriously so that some injuries in the future can be avoided, and so that warnings can be put out about some of the potential dangers from the vaccines.

The senator said he's sent letters to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and to the Food and Drug Administration in hopes of getting answers for people who have been adversely affected by the vaccines, saying those people feel abandoned by drug companies and federal health agencies.

"I understand we all want the pandemic to be over," he said. "We're all looking for that silver bullet, hoping that the vaccine will be it to end this pandemic ... you shouldn't cast aside these individuals that started experiencing symptoms within minutes."

Johnson said also said he's pressing for transparency in government so people have as much information as possible, and insisted that nobody should be "pressured, coerced, or fear reprisal for refusing any medical treatment, including the COVID vaccine, which let's face it is not fully FDA approved. It's under emergency use authorization."

He added that he hopes the FDA does not rush into final approval of the vaccines, as their observation should take time to determine what impacts are taking place, so "we actually have the time to assess what is actually happening with the vaccines."

[@565666,Turtlepower] so you are saying no one has ever died from a vaccine?
Turtlepower · 31-35, M
[@6853,Confined] No. I'm saying your numbers are wrong. Several people have died due to the blood clotting issues from Johnson and Johnson vaccine. I'm sure others in rare cases probably have died or had their death caused by side effects, but not that large of a number.

[@6853,Confined] of course they feel that way. It doesn't them correct and no amount of evidence will convince them otherwise sadly
Confined · 51-55, M
[@565666,Turtlepower] This number is reported by the CDC. Every vaccine ever made has deaths.
Turtlepower · 31-35, M
[@6853,Confined] Anything can cause death. Drinking water has caused death but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do it.

A new poll shows that most Americans who haven’t been vaccinated against the coronavirus say they are unlikely to get the shots. About 16% say they probably will get the vaccine.

Most also doubt they would work against the aggressive delta variant, despite evidence they do. Those findings underscore the challenges facing public health officials as soaring infections in some states threaten to overwhelm hospitals.

The poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found 35% of adults who have not yet received a vaccine say they probably will not, and 45% say they definitely will not.

Just 3% of unvaccinated Americans say they definitely will get the shots, though another 16% say they probably will. Some 37% of those under age 45 say they haven’t and likely won’t get the shots. Those without college degrees compared to those who graduated say they aren’t and won’t be vaccinated, 30% to 18%.

Nationally, 56.4% of all Americans, including children, have received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to the CDC. Vaccinations are starting to increase in some lagging states where cases are rising — Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Missouri and Nevada.

Alabama has recorded more than 500 COVID-19 deaths since April 1. [b]Twenty[/b] of those who died were fully vaccinated. That means slightly over 96% were unvaccinated.

We have been told we were guaranteed not to die if we got the shot. I think this proves that is not the case.

[@6853,Confined] but these things aren't always perfect right?
Confined · 51-55, M
[@1220817,colton08] According to our Government. Once vaccinated, death by covid is NOT possible. I say they are full of it.

[@6853,Confined] okay wasn't completely sure about the latest news on it. thanks for replying.

If you get injured by the vaccine, there is no cure, no help, no where to turn. You are on your own.

The St. Louis area will require masks -- regardless of vaccination status -- in public places indoors and on public transit as COVID-19 hospitalizations rise.

The state has been battling the U.S.’s worst renewed outbreak per capita, driven by the delta variant, with case levels now as high as in late January.

The new mandate begins Monday and will apply to people five and older. Exceptions will be made for those seated in restaurants and bars. Face coverings also “will be strongly encouraged” outdoors.
