What Happens To Vaccine Clinical Trial Participants?
This essay was written by a physician colleague of mine, whose opinion I value greatly. The research, views and opinions are his own, not mine. I write this because he is covering a very sensitive topic. If one doesn’t tread very carefully, this is a topic that could put a scientist or a physician on a DHS terrorism watch list, or on the list of the President’s “dirty dozen.” Censoring people, and labeling scientists and physicians as terrorists because they have a different scientific opinion than the official HHS public health/industrial complex opinion is now a “thing.”
Almost every abusive relationship follows a similar pattern: the abusive partner lures the abused party into the relationship with lavish promises, and then once they are ensnared, finds reasons to renege on those promises and justifications to be a little bit abusive. The abused party will try to resist this shift, but the abuser will find some way to overcome that resistance (e.g., they will gaslight the partner into believing the abuse isn’t even happening).
In turn, that small amount of abuse will become the accepted standard for the relationship and if the victimized partner ever attempts to resist the new standard, the abuser will throw a fit until compliance is restored. That cycle will repeat and repeat until a high degree of abuse (be it physical or emotional) becomes the norm, and the abused individual is trapped and has to go along with it.

Normally, one of the following breaks this cycle:
The abuse is so flagrant that outside parties get involved to try to stop it. For example, sometimes someone will show up at the emergency room (ER) with an injury resulting from domestic violence, and law enforcement may get involved, although this is by no means guaranteed (e.g., the ER may not be able to intervene in the cycle if the patient wishes to stay with the abuser), and sometimes a neighbor will overhear an incident and contact the police.
The abuser decides they have no further use for the abused party and discards them.
The abused individual walks away.
You would think that the last one should always happen, but in reality, it’s extremely easy to get trapped in these cycles, and immensely difficult to leave them once someone in a position of “authority” forbids you from doing so. Humans, in general, gradually acclimate to worsening conditions, so provided an abuser eases into their abuse, the reflex to run away from them doesn’t trigger (conversely if the abuser did a lot of what they had planned at the start of the relationship, the abused party would recognize that it was unacceptable and immediately exit).
One of the things I’ve found quite frustrating about life is that many people I come across (including individuals I do not consider to be mean-spirited) will follow a similar pattern of gradually escalating the obligations and expectations they place on me, in tandem with increasing hostility towards any non-compliance I provide to their increasing demands. When I was younger, I would frequently find myself being pushed into abusive dynamics (a common scenario was me wanting to help someone who requested it), and then clashing with the party later when they began pushing those demands onto me, and I had to try and make them stop. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve accepted that this is just something people do, and the best way to navigate the issue is by always sidestepping expectations or obligations people attempt to place on you so the cycle can never start (which can sometimes be very challenging).
In the same way that this process occurs in interpersonal interactions, it is also done by bad actors against the population as a whole (when governments do this, it is commonly referred to as the “totalitarian tiptoe”). If you consider the whole COVID-19 “pandemic” situation, we had a series of completely absurd demands placed upon us for “emergency” reasons, and then each time one stipulation was complied with, an even more extreme one was put forward. For example, although the lockdowns had no value and resulted in enormous social costs, many are now calling for climate lockdowns (to fight the emergency of climate change), and Oxford is drafting the plans to implement them next year.
Another common abuser of society is the pharmaceutical industry. Nowadays, I am often asked how I was able to accurately predict the course of the pandemic, and my answer each time is: “all of this was just an escalation of what the industry had done previously.” As the years have gone by, the industry has become more and more brazen in pushing unsafe and ineffective medications onto the market and paying off the government to gaslight the injured parties, rather than fulfilling its obligation to investigate and pull the harmful medications.
For example, much of what has happened throughout the COVID-19 pandemic parallels the early days of the AIDS epidemic. Fauci fought to keep a variety of effective treatments for AIDS off the market so that he could push through a deadly and ineffective (but highly lucrative) drug to treat HIV, which was AZT. This is exactly what Fauci later did during COVID-19, first with remdesivir, and later the vaccines, except this time it affected all of America rather than just the gay community (who actively protested him at the time, but for all practical purposes were ignored):
Similarly, there were major concerns with safety, efficacy, and research fraud, which should have never allowed the first selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant (Prozac) to enter the market. Bush senior (who had previously served on the board of Prozac’s manufacturer) played a key role in forcing it through the approval process (the FDA did not want to approve it).
Once it was approved (many other competitors quickly jumped into the market with equally dubious clinical trial data), the FDA received a deluge of reports of severe side effects from SSRI users, including violent acts of suicide or homicide. The FDA then did everything it could to bury this information (e.g., forbidding their own reviewer to release a report that was critical of giving SSRIs to children, and authoring its own inaccurate meta-analysis which erroneously argued that there were no safety concerns with the SSRIs).
Eventually, after two decades of protest against the FDA, which included a congressional hearing, the agency capitulated by issuing a black box warning (used for medications known to carry serious safety risks) on the SSRIs, which has since been mostly ignored. As that represents the closest documented case precedent we have to what is happening now with the COVID-19 vaccines, I tried to document what the FDA did then here (it is also covered in more detail in this book).
Similarly, in 2009, in response to widespread publicity detailing serious adverse events attributed to the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, the FDA and CDC initiated a study to examine Gardasil’s safety profile based on VAERS case reports. It analyzed all VAERS reports filed since Gardasil’s mid-2006 approval through the end of 2008, a period of two and a half years.
The key finding of the study was that “the VAERS reporting rate for [Gardasil] is triple the rate for all other vaccines combined.” Additionally, the study found that 68% of the reports were submitted by representatives of Merck, Gardasil’s manufacturer, most of which were largely incomplete or inaccurate, and 90% of which lacked information essential for conducting medical assessments. Finally, the authors also noted that VAERS suffered from underreporting.
Despite that red flag, and a clear indication that if anything, it was underestimating the scale of the issue, the authors just dismissed it. Instead, they simply declared that the high rate of adverse events “reflects greater public attention to HPV”, which was purportedly “stimulated” by “widespread media coverage” and that Gardasil’s “post-licensure safety profile” as calculated from VAERS data is “broadly consistent” with safety data collected in its clinical trials, while simultaneously failing to support these assertions. Not surprisingly, following the study’s publication, news organizations and health authorities such as the CDC and WHO repeatedly referenced it as proof that Gardasil was safe.
Given how poorly the HPV vaccine was handled, I was dubious that the CDC or FDA could be relied upon to recognize red alerts within VAERS for a highly dangerous vaccine entering the market. However, VAERS providing red alerts (which were ignored) also demonstrates that VAERS is serving its intended function, because its creation was the result of activists (e.g., parents of vaccine injured children) demanding a way for the public to be able to directly report vaccine injuries and be able to access this citizen data.
This was necessary because medical providers and the government frequently placed insurmountable obstacles in the way of reporting vaccine injuries, and VAERS was a concession that was given in exchange for the vaccine manufacturers being absolved of all liability for vaccine injuries in the 1986 law. Since the CDC, by law, cannot censor VAERS (although as recent events have shown they still often do), the government and the media actively disparage the validity of VAERS (except when it can be cited to prove safety). Instead, VAERS requires the public to make use of the system to illuminate vaccine safety concerns that those in power would prefer to remain hidden.
All of this is best highlighted by what has occurred with the COVID-19 vaccines. In addition to numerous other red flags with the vaccines, VAERS has also demonstrated that the COVID-19 vaccines are by far the most dangerous vaccines in history, and many members of the public have been able to use VAERS to draw attention to this issue. However, like the previous contender for the most dangerous vaccine in history (Gardasil), those VAERS signals have been ridiculed by the media and ignored by our health authorities. The most conclusive proof of this is a recent FOIA which proved that the CDC has intentionally ignored hundreds of safety signals from VAERS.
Given the significant obstacles that exist for using post-marketing surveillance methods to evaluate vaccine safety, we must thus look into the other end of the process: can clinical trials provide us with meaningful safety data?
The Clinical Trial Experience
I recognize that bringing up the subject of domestic abuse can be a very unpleasant subject to touch upon, and for that reason I went back and forth on it. However, I felt it so perfectly matches what I’ve seen happen to clinical trial participants, it had to be covered.
In numerous clinical trials I’ve looked at, the same pattern is followed:
The pharmaceutical company does everything it can to entice the trial participant into participating, including emphasizing how special they are for doing it, and promising that nothing bad will happen, but if it does, the company will do everything possible to take care of them (doctors are also often paid for each participant they enroll, and aid this process).
Once the participant experiences negative effects from the trial drug, the trial coordinators will do everything they can to gaslight the participant into either believing the adverse event did not happen, or was not related to the drug. This is often easy to accomplish because the abused trial participant does not want to believe it could have happened (e.g., because they trusted in the researcher’s promises that led to their enrollment).
If the participant overcomes the gaslighting, and attempts to have their experience documented, their adverse event will still not make it into the final clinical trial report (it will either not be reported at all, or reclassified as something relatively minor).
Most importantly, regardless of any previous promises, the pharmaceutical company will not offer any support to those who are harmed by the pharmaceutical. Instead, they are kicked to the curb and discarded once they no longer have anything to offer the pharmaceutical company.
I became familiar with the entire issue after a few of my friends were severely injured by the HPV vaccine. After asking myself how a vaccine that dangerous could have been allowed on the market, I learned that the above had happened throughout Merck’s clinical trial. Once it dawned on me how much of a problem this was, I realized I would need to hear reports directly from the people in trials for a vaccine that I was relatively sure would be forced on the population in the near future.
In 2020, I found a way to join an online group for participants in the COVID-19 vaccine trials, and read a variety of fairly concerning side effects by the participants. Later when the trial reports were published, I could not see many of the concerning symptoms they described anywhere in either Pfizer’s or Moderna’s clinical trial reports. Since that time, I have seen a gradual trickle of people coming forward from the clinical trials telling that exactly what I had seen happen previously in the HPV trials had happened to them.
I should also note that this abuser issue is not exclusive to vaccines; there are many harrowing examples of severe injuries occurring within trials for other pharmaceuticals such as SSRIs (which, as was the case with HPV vaccine, harmful “placebos,” were almost certainly utilized deliberately to make the drug under study look better at the patient’s expense). However, as was the case with the HPV vaccine, the pharmaceutical industry has been mostly successful in covering up what happened in the SSRI trials.
The HPV Trials
This section contains direct quotations from this excellent book at the permission of its author. It was written in 2018 and sadly predicted much of what was to follow less than 3 years later. The most important thing to understand about the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine was that it was designed to be a cash cow “prevent cervical cancer,” and made Merck a lot of money.
The book uses two cases study examples to describe the experiences of two Gardasil trial participants:
A key challenge with developing vaccines is soliciting a strong enough antibody response to satisfy drug regulators (although it is heavily debatable if the antibody response confers the protection it is believed to represent). One of the challenges with the HPV vaccine was that a much stronger adjuvant was needed to achieve that response, and not surprisingly, that adjuvant also had significant side effects.
To “solve” this problem, Merck came up with the ingenious solution to have their new adjuvant be the “placebo” and then have the vaccine’s safety be evaluated based on how much worse it was than the “placebo” rather than the normally expected occurrence of its side effects or a true saline placebo (note: Merck later attempted to make a COVID-19 vaccine that was similar to J&J’s [but with a different virus] they had to give up on because it did not solicit a sufficient antibody response, which serves to illustrate why so much will be attempted to ensure this happens).
Here is the next “real life” example from the book:
The awful experiences of these two women are also extremely informative for understanding how regulators treat this conduct:
I could write multiple articles on all the egregious issues that have been brought to light about the HPV trials, but for space considerations, I will leave it to you to draw your own conclusions. However, I will note that the book’s full title was The HPV Vaccine on Trial : Seeking Justice For A Generation Betrayed.
Hopefully, my familiarity with these events and the complete failure of the federal government to address any of them should help to explain why I was somewhat skeptical that the COVID-19 clinical trials would be conducted with integrity or that their widely heralded trial reports published in a premier academic journal could be taken at face value.
Lastly, I will note that if abuse is not addressed, it typically worsens with time. For this reason, my expectation going into the COVID-19 vaccines was that what we would see would be even worse than what had happened with Gardasil (e.g., I believe it is fair to say multiple generations have been betrayed this time around), even though Merck was not the one to conduct those trials (as they lost the race to make a COVID-19 vaccine).
I hope that this article has given you some context for why it is so important to speak out against these injustices (because otherwise it won’t be long before they happen to you) and how something like this can happen:
In the second part of this series we will look at how each of the issues described here happened with the COVID-19 vaccines, and in my opinion were even more horrendous.
