COVID-19 Vaccine Pros and Cons

COVID-19 Vaccine Pros and Cons

Let us start with the premise that no science is ever "settled science".  Only a non-scientist would make such a statement.  New research and facts emerge, previously held presumptions are disproven by new evidence and conditions change. Scientists continually reevaluate previously held positions.  With that in mind, here's what is current accepted as facts in favor of and opposed to the COID-19 vaccines.


  • Hundreds of millions of people have taken the vaccine with relatively few reports of harm.
  • People who have had the vaccine, and who did not previously have a COVID infection are reported to have less serious consequences if they do have a "breakthrough" (post vaccination) COVID infection.
  • One vaccine, the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine was granted full approval on August 23, 2021 by the Food and Drug Administration for persons aged ≥16 years. Children ages 12 to 15, as well as immunocompromised individuals seeking a third dose, may receive the vaccine under an emergency use authorization. Children under 12 years old are not eligible for the shot at all.



  • A statistically significant percentage of people, especially young people have had myocarditis (enlarged heart) as a consequence of taking the vaccines.
  • Blood clotting problems are being report, although the data is difficult to find and there are numerous media reports of the facts being hidden or suppressed.
  • The FDA review panel voted 14 to 2 NOT to approve the Pfzier vaccine. The panel's recommendation was ignored and overruled by the head of the CDC. At least 2 members of the FDA's panel resigned as a consequence.
