FDA Suggests Florida Surgeon General Is Spreading “Misinfo” About COVID Vax Safety

As the federal government renews calls for more COVID-19 vaccines, the Biden administration continues to argue that the jabs are safe and effective, and said suggestions to the contrary, such as those recently expressed by Florida’s top doctor, amount to “misinformation and disinformation” that make people hesitant to get the shot.

The remarks were made in response to Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo, who recently pointed out that the COVID shots contain human DNA particles that could make recipients sick.

In a Dec. 6 letter to the heads of the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Ladapo urged both agencies to review the mRNA vaccines by Pfizer and Moderna for the presence of residual human DNA that could be contaminated.

The surgeon general cited work by Canadian researchers who in October released a paper outlining the discovery of high levels of human DNA in both vaccines.

Researchers determined that products of both companies contained DNA fragments that were well above limits set by the FDA. The scientists called for additional research into the vaccines to confirm their findings and more transparency by the drugmakers about their manufacturing process.  

“Our  findings  extend existing concerns about vaccine safety and call into question the relevance of guidelines conceived before the introduction of efficient transfection using  LNP,” they wrote. LNP refers to the method that the mRNA vaccine uses to deliver the drug into the body’s cells.

Noting their work, Ladapo wrote to the FDA and CDC that contaminated DNA ion the shots “could theoretically” cause healthy cells to become cancerous, result in chromosomal instability, or affect “unintended” parts of the body such as the blood, heart, brain, liver, kidney, bone marrow, ovaries/testes, lung, draining lymph nodes, and spleen.

“While accelerated approvals for prescription drugs have been around for over two decades, the opioid crisis and COVID-19 pandemic are just two publicized examples illustrating the risks associated with these accelerated processes for drug approvals,” Ladapo wrote to both agencies.

With “the presence of DNA fragments in these vaccines, it is essential to human health to assess the risks of contaminant DNA integration into human DNA,” he added.

Ladapo has frequently questioned the effectiveness and safety of the vaccines. He has recommended, for example, that young healthy men skip the shot because of the risk of heart disease and their natural ability to fend off the virus.

In his letter, he noted that he wanted the federal public health agencies to answer whether Pfizer and Moderna evaluated the risk of residual DNA contaminants and if the FDA asked them to investigate such risks.

He also sought to know if current FDA standards the LNP method and whether the agency evaluated the risk LNPs pose for DNA integration in reproductive cells.

According to The Blaze on Friday, Peter Marks, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, argued the jabs were both safe and effective.

“We would like to make clear that based on a thorough assessment of the entire manufacturing process, FDA is confident in the quality, safety, and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines. The agency’s benefit-risk assessment and ongoing safety surveillance demonstrate that the benefits of their use outweigh their risks,” Marks wrote.

“Additionally, with over a billion doses of the mRNA vaccines administered, no safety concerns related to residual DNA have been identified,” Marks added.

Marks called it “quite implausible” that small residual DNA fragments could penetrate the nuclear membrane in “intact cells” and adversely affect the chromosomal DNA.

He also argued that studies conducted of animals receiving the mRNA shots with the LNP delivery method demonstrate “no evidence” of toxicity from the vaccine, nor did the data from “hundreds of millions of individuals” who got jabbed.

The Blaze also reported that Marks, in his response, told Ladapo that  “misinformation and disinformation” create “vaccine hesitancy that lowers vaccine uptake.”
