Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Wants Investigation on Potential Life-Threatening Anaphylaxis if Injected with Moderna’s COVID Vaccine
On August 26, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) wrote a letter to Dr. Jerry Menikoff, Director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Human Research Protection (OHRP), asking for an investigation into serious safety concerns with the COVID-19 vaccine being developed by Moderna. Moderna’s version of the vaccine, championed by Dr. Anthony Fauci and funded with $500 million in taxpayer dollars through Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, contains polyethylene glycol (PEG), a molecule to which approximately 72% of the American population have antibodies and 8% have highly elevated levels of antibodies. People who have pre-existing PEG antibodies could experience life-threatening anaphylaxis if injected with PEG-containing substances such as the Moderna COVID vaccine. Additionally, antibodies to PEG can both decrease the effectiveness of the vaccine and increase the risk of side effects. CHD board chair Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. also wrote a personal letter to Dr. Fauci emphasizing that these serious safety concerns must be addressed, urging that trial participants be advised of the unique risks associated with PEG. At the time of publication, no response was received from either the OHRP or Dr. Fauci.
