Expert Testimony provided by Dr. Christina Parks, Ph.D, to the Michigan House of Representatives in hearing on HB 4471. This is an unedited screen recording.
I am a mother of a healthy-asymptotic child, that is barely 12 years old in the 7th grade, that was placed on a “list” by the health department for mandatory quarantine of the religious exempt or “unvaccinated” in which the Health Department is monetized, mistreated like he was in trouble, isolated in an in-school suspension style “covid room” or “quarantine room” in his middle school, removed/banned from school without a plan, without curriculum, and without access to school work (with incomplete school work given to me, follow repeat requests for it, on a Sunday or one day prior to his allowed return to public school) for 8 full days, vaccination status asked (despite his religious exemption), told to go get my child vaccinated and or provide proof of vaccination/vaccine passport in order for him to “return to normal” and “return to the classroom”, forced to quarantine based on alleged contact with COVID without proof or details, medical information withheld for this quarantine, and online bullying and harassment of family as a result of it all. This appears to be a politically driven agenda to spite Florida Governor, DeSantis, the Florida Department of Education, the Florida Surgeon General, the Florida Legislature (recently passed Parental Bill of Rights), and the parental rights of the parents of Florida. See The Epoch Times news article on my story and that of many other Flagler County families:
Children in Flagler County Schools are being bullied, treated like criminals, discriminated against, isolated and treated as two classes of students all over vaccination status/passports… the agenda of it all is to apply coercion to their parents to vaccinate them. This is not ok!
Watch to understand why this testimony matters. This is NOT an anti-vaccination video. This is an expert testifying to the Michigan House of Representatives on why the vaccination is not effective for Delta Variant, the predominant variant.
Furthermore, there is no need for Flagler County Schools to quarantine the unvaccinated where they refuse to quarantine the vaccinated as both carry the same viral load. This is a “leaky” vaccine. There are “perfect” and “leaky” vaccines. “Leaky” vaccines reduce severity of symptoms in those infected and prevent death in particular variants but these vaccines DO NOT PROTECT OTHERS FROM TRANSMISSION!
Even with a vaccine intended for this variant, many kids are unable to get vaccinated in elementary and middle schools based on the age minimum and some even due to underlying health reasons or religious beliefs. This virus mutates like the flu in that it infects both humans and animals so this vaccine would equate to the flu shot in reality.
It actually can lead to increased shedding in some cases as seen with the chicken vaccine - see article: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/science/tthis-chicken-vaccine-makes-virus-dangerous.
This policy of having no testing or quarantine policy for the vaccinated children exposed to COVID while mandatory for the unvaccinated or presumed by Religious Exemption unvaccinated needs to end. This does not align to science and is not based on reason. The school board needs to take back its elected duty from the health department bureaucracy.
Canada is home to one of the most endangered ecosystems in the entire world - the temperate grasslands of the Great Plains.
Our native prairie is home to over 60 species at-risk but it is disappearing and at an alarming rate. However, cattle are maintaining and preserving these iconic landscapes and providing hope for the plants and animals that call them home. Sometimes what you thought was the problem, is really the solution.
In a time where companies are marketing meat substitues such as Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, it is important to note there are ecological reasons to maintain a healthy cattle grazing industry in Canada and in large segments of the US midwest.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) has outlined their objectives in the establishment of a Vaccine Passport System to be established and governed by the World Health Organization (WHO).
