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.
The Chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association, Dr. Haruo Ozaki, recommends Ivermectin for use with COVID patients.
He notes that the parts of Africa that use ivermectin to control parasites have a COVID death rate of just 2.2 per 100,000 population, as compared to 13 times that death rate among African countries that do not use ivermectin.
Similarly, worldometer.com statistics say that the COVID death rate in India (which uses HCQ and Ivermectin to treat COVID) is 32 while the COVID death rate in the U.S.A. is 6.5 times higher at 205 per 100,000 population.
The official guidelines for doctors from the Japanese Ministry of Health states that "compared to standard treatment and placebo, ivermectin did not reduce deaths, shorten the hospitalization period and improve time of virus disappearance."
A clinical study by Japan's Kitasato University on ivermectin as a Covid-19 treatment is ongoing.
Health Canada issued a statement pointing out "Health Canada has received concerning reports of the use of veterinary ivermectin to prevent or treat Covid-19. Canadians should never consume health products intended for animals because of the potential serious health dangers posed by them," it said in the statement.
Of course it is also necessary to point out Ivermectin is an oral drug approved in Canada for the treatment of certain parasitic infections (e.g. strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis) and has been approved for decades. The government issued restrictions on it's prescribed use due to possible shortages of supply. (Link)
And to be clear, the Government of Japan has not approved it for use to treat Covid-19, the Chairman has asked that they consider allowing doctors to prescribe it. “I would like the government to consider treatment at the level of the family doctor.” with the informed consent of the patient.
It does seem strange that elected officials are promoting policies to prevent people from refusing a vaccine without their consent, while disallowing them the right to choose with their consent.
Medical informed consent is ethically, morally, and legally mandated by the fiduciary responsibilities flowing from the patient-physician relationship. (Link)
