IMPERIAL COUNTY — Leading up to the Imperial County Board of Supervisors meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 20, the Imperial County Medical Society issued a press release regarding an item on the agenda where Dr. George Fareed and Dr. Brian Tyson are expected to speak on their experience with alternative COVID-19 treatments and protocol.

The Imperial County Medical Society, a component medical society of the California Medical Association, continues to reinforce that prevention and treatment of COVID-19 must follow the science. Vaccines, masking, and social distancing ​are proven tools of prevention, and continue to be the most effective defense against COVID-19, according to the press release.

The release also states, information that suggests deviations from the known science creates tremendous risk to the community.  A recent study by Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security estimated that false or misleading information continues to inflict between $50 million and $300 million in total harm to the nation every day since May 2021, when vaccines to prevent COVID-19 became widely available.

“Ultimately, we cannot measure the pain suffered by the families and friends of those who have died or bring back the 788 people who died from COVID in our county,” the release states.

“The Imperial County Board of Supervisors should not contribute to the dissemination of false or misleading information by legitimizing unproven treatments. We urge the Imperial County Board of Supervisors not to use board meetings as a platform to publicize information on COVID treatments that have not received an emergency use authorization or received full FDA approval. We also call upon our Board of Supervisors to be stewards of the science by promoting COVID vaccination and masking, which have proven to be effective at reducing COVID hospitalizations and deaths,” as stated in the press release.

The Imperial County Medical Assn (ICMA) wants to shut up alternate views instead of properly debating all views. In this free county, all views count. The ICMA doesn't want people discussing why 800,000 people got covid injection injuries, the various therapeutic alternatives that do work, nor or how taking Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, zinc, and Quercetin will help you avoid getting Covid in the first place.

55 Reasons You Should NOT Take the Covid Vaccines, or Why You Should Have Known Better.

This is a simple list of reasons to not accept the Covid-19 vaccines. Some come from the vaccine manufacturers, and some from the government, but most are just common sense rationale that should be obvious to anyone who thinks for themselves.

1. The three manufacturers, Pfizer, Moderna, And Johnson & Johnson have said don’t take their vaccines if you have allergies.

2. All three have said don’t take the vaccine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

3. All three have said don’t take the vaccine if you have a bleeding disorder or are on a blood thinner.

4. All three have said don’t take the vaccine if you have heart disease.

5. All three have said don’t take the vaccine if you have a fever.

6. All three have said don’t take their vaccine if you have taken another vaccine.

7. All three have said don’t take the vaccine if you are immunocompromised or on medicine which affects your immune system.

8. The CDC has said don’t take the vaccines if you have had an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients.

9. If the manufacturers, themselves, have advised against the vaccines for certain people, then why do most of the people pushing the vaccines refuse to give any information (or even acknowledge it) on who should not take which vaccine, and which one is best for you?

10. Why do they simply demand, “Do what you’re told.”?

11. The Covid-19 “vaccines” are a different type of vaccine which has never been approved before. The vaccines are experimental, and we simply don’t know yet how safe they are. It is impossible to know the long-term effects of vaccines.

12. These “vaccines”, by definition, are not vaccines, but medical treatments.

13. It is against the law for anyone to force a person to take medical treatment, but many are doing just that.

14. If the vaccines are safe, why are you required to declare the manufacturers not liable for injury or death?

15. If the vaccines are safe, why do the government officials, trying to force this experimental medical treatment upon you, also have zero liability if it kills you?

16. If the vaccines are safe, why does the government (VAERS) publicly display the numbers of deaths and injuries following vaccinations?

17. Why are these numbers immediately discounted as unconnected, with no room for discussion?

18. If the vaccines are safe, why aren’t people being told these new “vaccines” have never been used before on humans, and there is no way to know what the long-term effects will be?

19. If the vaccines are effective, why do the vaccinated still have to wear masks?

20. If the vaccines are effective, why do the vaccinated still have to be tested?

21. If the vaccines are effective, why do the vaccinated still have to practice social distancing?

22. The duration of protection from Covid-19 is presently unknown, the vaccine may remain effective for only a few months, and you won’t know when you are again at risk.

23. Since the vaccine only lasts for a limited time, we will need to be regularly vaccinated and hope you are protected.

24. Getting the vaccine does not guarantee you will be protected. It can take weeks for the vaccine to provide protection, and then, it is only up to 95% effective.

25. Why are we continually being told that the vaccines are 95% effective when only the Pfizer vaccine is considered to be 95% effective, the Moderna vaccine is said to be 94%, and the Johnson & Johnson is only 66-85%, and why are they changing that to simply “effective”?

26. Any solution that is not 100% effective can do more to spread a virus than no solution at all.

27. Even if you are fully vaccinated, you can still get the virus, because the vaccines do not protect you from the virus, but from the sometimes deadly symptoms.

28. Getting the vaccine does not protect your family, the community, or anyone around you.

29. Getting the vaccine does not stop you from passing the virus on to others. Getting the vaccine only protects you by hopefully lessening the symptoms if you get Covid.

30. If you get infected with the virus, and don’t have symptoms, you might go about life as normal, ignorantly discharging the virus among society.

31. Why are they continually trying to scare us into taking the vaccine, through bloating the numbers by counting people who died with Covid as dying from Covid?

32. This would not be the first time our government has performed medical experiments on unwitting citizens.

33. With all the contradictions, flip-flopping, manipulated data and graphs, and outright lies, we’ve been given during Covid-19, why should we believe anything we are told?

34. Forcing anyone to participate in a medical experiment is the same as evil doctors performing medical experiments on prisoners.

35. The vaccines and boosters damage the natural immune system, which protects us from a virus.

36. Covid-19 is a coronavirus (like a cold). ALL coronaviruses can be prevented and treated through more natural methods.

37. All viruses mutate. This means that to be “protected”, you must continually accept new experimental vaccines or boosters.

38. Most people who have taken the vaccines, have done so out of fear or were bullied by society.

39. Most people who have refused the vaccines, have done so because of a lack of evidence for safety or effectiveness.

40. Young healthy people have a 99.9% chance of surviving Covid-19, if they even contract the virus. Why is it that those promoting the vaccines for children, demand that school children wear masks which are scientifically proven to be useless against a virus, but proven to inhibit the immune system?

41. After 2 years of Covid ravaging America, less than 1 in 7 people have statistically been known to contract the virus. That number is even less when you consider the number of reinfections.

42. Why are the number of reinfections “rare” when desiring high numbers of cases, but “likely” when referring to the un-vaccinated.

43. Why would 100% of the population have to take an experimental medical treatment, when the vast majority will probably never even be infected by the virus, and if they were, most would be unlikely to die from it?

44. If the vaccines were actually useful and necessary, would the government have to resort to authoritarian measures to force people to accept it?

45. Wise and all-knowing Hollywood celebrities have promoted it as cool to get vaccinated.

46. Why does “My body. My choice” give a woman the right to kill her unborn baby, but not your right to protect your own body?

47. Why is Big-Tech so aggressively censoring anyone who even questions the necessity of the vaccines, or their safety or effectiveness?

48. Why does the government and their media so aggressively oppress any scientific debate or evidence on the necessity of the vaccines, or their safety or effectiveness?

49. Why does the global elite, with their boldly proclaimed desire to depopulate the world by 95% demand that all us peasants take the vaccine?

50. Bowing down to tyrants only increases their oppression and tyranny tactics.

51. We have a moral and religious responsibility to resist oppression and tyranny.

52. We have a moral and religious responsibility to protect our nation’s rights and liberties.

53. We have a moral and religious responsibility to stand as an example to others.

54. We have a moral and religious responsibility to protect those weaker than us, by our defiance against tyranny and oppression.

55. According to the CDC’s own numbers, Covid-19 has a 99.74% survival rate, IF you even get the virus. Why would anyone, with enough brain matter to think for themselves, risk a medical treatment, that doesn’t stop infection or transmission, is statistically unnecessary for most people, doesn’t last long, has to be continually redone, might kill you or injure you for life, simply to help overcome a cold that has only a .26% (.16% according to cases vs supposed deaths) chance of killing you if you were to even get the virus?


It would seem to me, to be open to all thoughts and suggestions to help with dealing with this virus would be applauded not discouraged, especially since the things that have been approved and done so far have certainly not been very effective, it just keeps getting worse. It's definately time to look for new ways and possibly better ways to combat this virus instead of just plodding along with the same old ineffective and often deadly means that have already been approved by those in authority!
