The COVID Vaccines – part 1

From Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABHIM. Action Alert!

The following is reposted from Also be sure to check out Dr. Tenpenny’s video series on COVID, which is free for a limited time.

In December 2020, the first vaccines for coronavirus disease were granted an EUA – Emergency Use Authorization – by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Vaccine administration began immediately. Were you first in line? I hope you were not, and no one you care about was either.

What We Know About the COVID Vaccines

According to the Coronavirus Vaccine Tracker, as of Dec. 26, 2020, 83 vaccines are in Phase 1, 2 or 3 human and animal clinical trials, with 18 approaching the final stages of testing. Never before have so many companies tested so many different vaccines at the same time, against a virus that has not been isolated. Of those in the trials, five vaccines are now early use, with three vaccines approved for clinical use Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca. Here’s what we have been told, so far: 

Pfizer/BioNTech (BNT162b2)

Pfizer’s vaccine – given the tentative name Comirnaty – has been approved for persons 16 years of age and older. The mRNA vaccine consists of two doses (30mcg solution in 0.3cc) given intramuscularly 21 days apart. The vaccine must be stored at -94F (-70C). mRNA is an unstable molecule, which is why it needs to be wrapped in lipid nanoparticles for storage and transportation. But the lipid nanoparticle is exquisitely sensitive to temperature; hence the reason that the vaccine must be stored and transported at extraordinarily low temperatures.

The ingredients found in Pfizer’s vaccine include the following:

  • ALC-0315 = (4-hydroxybutyl) azanediyl)bis (hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate)
  • ALC-0159 = 2-[(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide
  • 1,2-Distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine
  • cholesterol
  • potassium chloride
  • potassium dihydrogen phosphate
  • sodium chloride
  • disodium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate
  • sucrose

Note that none of the ingredients are listed with milligrams dosage. Look at the first three excipients. Not one of these has ever been used in a previously approved vaccine. Have they been tested for synergistic toxicity? Has there been stability testing for the breakdown of each ingredient when warmed to room temperature? And what about all those allergic reactions being reported? Have ANY of these chemicals been tested for allergic responses, in humans or even in animals?

While Pfizer and the FDA have no idea if this vaccine will prevent infection or even if the antibodies will persist long-term, Pfizer expects to manufacture over 1.3 billion doses worldwide by the end of 2021.  For more on how this vaccine works, go here.

Moderna (mRNA-1273)

Like Pfizer’s vaccine, Moderna’s vaccine also uses mRNA as its vehicle for inducing antibody responses to the spike protein.  Approved for those 18 years of age and older, the vaccine is given as two doses, (100 mcg in 0.5 cc intramuscular injection) with the second dose given one month (28 days) later, or as close to the recommended interval as possible. This vaccine can be stored up to six months at -4F (-20C) temperatures. Notably, the ingredients of this vaccine have not been released. Are you willing to be injected with something unknown?

Either of the currently authorized mRNA COVID-19 vaccines can be used when indicated; ACIP does not state a product preference. However, these two vaccines are not interchangeable and both doses of the series should be completed with the same product. However, if two doses of different mRNA COVID-19 vaccine products are inadvertently administered, no worries! Additional doses of either product are not recommended.

Remember that both vaccines are completely protected from all liability by the 2005 PREP Act. So, if the nurse gives you the wrong shot, and you have a serious reaction, even death, there will be no repercussions for the nurse and no compensation for you.

One more candidate: AstraZeneca (AZD1222) (ChAdOx1 nCoV-19)

AstraZeneca’s AZD1222 coronavirus vaccine candidate, formerly known as ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, is made from a weakened version of a common cold virus, hence its original name. While it can cause infection in chimpanzees, the virus was genetically changed so it cannot reproduce/ replicate in humans.

The manufacturer released only a cursory list of ingredients, without including the microgram or milligram amount of each chemical. One 0.5cc injecting includes:

  • COVID-19 Vaccine (ChAdOx1-S* recombinant) 5 × 10^10 viral particles (vp)
    • *This product contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
  • Recombinant, replication-deficient chimpanzee adenovirus vector encoding the SARS CoV 2 Spike (S) glycoprotein
  • Genetically modified human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cells
  • 6.1 List of excipients:
    • L-Histidine
    • L-Histidine hydrochloride monohydrate
    • Magnesium chloride hexahydrate
    • Polysorbate 80
    • Ethanol
    • Sucrose
    • Sodium chloride
    • Disodium edetate dihydrate
    • Water for injections

This vaccine candidate is of interest because the clinical studies, done in collaboration with the University of Oxford, were widely publicized as the first and most promising vaccine. However, in May 2020, it was reported that all the vaccinated monkeys treated with the Oxford vaccine became infected when challenged. Then, why did the company press forward with the renamed, AZD1222 vaccine candidate? Because even though the vaccine did not protect the animals from infection, it did moderate the disease. Watch for this type of logic as the 80+ COVID vaccines try to make their way into the multi-trillion-dollar vaccine market.

But not to let all that research and money to go to waste, researchers now believe the shot will be effective against a new viral variant emerging in Britain. To find out more about how this vaccine works, go here.

Action Alert! Write to Congress and the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee and tell them we need full transparency on any COVID vaccine. Please send your message immediately. By sending this message, you will also be supporting our petition to ungag doctors so that they can share with patients the benefits of supplements and natural treatments for COVID.

  1. We need to know exactly what these COVID vaccines contain before allowing them to be injected into our bodies.

  2. I am deeply concerned about the grave repercussions that could come from vaccinating the American public with vaccines that have not been thoroughly tested. Also, the lack of transparency and willingness to have open dialogue with anyone questioning the science is very concerning. The censorship of dissenting doctors and scientists means people cannot make balanced decisions.

  3. Technically and legally these are not vaccines. They are gene therapy technologies as stated by the manufacturers. For these concoctions to be vaccines they must be shown to be able to stop severe cases for occurring, prevent deaths and stop the spread of the virus (flu). None of these prerequisites are being met, as per the trial definitions presented by the companies themselves. These fake vaccines are a farce and serve no purpose as would be intended with any normal vaccines created in the last 70 years.

  4. I will not be taking the vaccine based on the current lack of transparency regarding the ingredients in them. This is unacceptable.

  5. Moderna vaccine ingredients, found at

    The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine contains the following ingredients: messenger ribonucleic acid
    (mRNA), lipids (SM-102, polyethylene glycol [PEG] 2000 dimyristoyl glycerol [DMG],
    cholesterol, and 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine [DSPC]), tromethamine,
    tromethamine hydrochloride, acetic acid, sodium acetate, and sucrose.

  6. Question: How much of the “spike protien” is created? Moderna vaccine, we know goes into cell to cause the cell to make the spike protien,.. It goes into how many cells? How many “spike protiens” are created?

    Would these protiens show up in labs? A titer?

  7. I read that James Reardon, M.D., former Vice-President of Pfizer, indicated that the messengerRNA vaccine will cause women to be unable to deliver children.

    Apparently, it contains a placenta protein that will prevent women who get pregnant from being able to form a placenta in the womb, causing the baby to die.

  8. A presentation about the Novavax vaccine would be interesting , and particularly as it seems it may be a better option than any of the three presented in the above.

  9. The problem I see arising is that as the vaccine programs fail to protect it will be the unvaccinated that will become the scapegoats. I’m trying to figure out what I will do as this is now a global issue. In the past if you didn’t like where you were living there was always somewhere else you could move to but now the whole world is involved in this madness. It’s all well and fine to say you’re not going to get vaccinated but if policies are put in place to completely restrict the unvaccinated, limiting your ability to travel, shop, work, etc., what will you do? When I try and talk with people about this issue I usually just receive blank stares. I am so saddened by where we have gotten to and the ignorance and complicity of the masses.

    1. Bang on, Dawn. And those coercive policies WILL come unless there’s a mass revolution just about everywhere. It’s the same gambit as leaving masking policies up to lower, non-federal govt levels to institute (using coercion, bribes, financial compensations with those politicians and bureaucrats) , taking the national “leaders” right off the hook. I haven’t seen any good enough answers yet anywhere as to “if/when you’re banned from living in society, what then?”…other than buy secluded, secure land NOW, start growing your own food (as if we’re all able, year-round), find others of like mind to live with, including those who can communally provide all the needed services or products (off-grid) one would need in such a situation, e.g. doctors, dentists, etc. Doesn’t seem practical or do-able for an awful lot of people.
      Alarmingly, you’re right, not enough are cluing into either the big picture or the critical details yet, but it’s already the 11th hour. And many of us are wearying of trying to educate them. I feel like I’ve wasted 10 months of what “they” will leave me of my life – researching, learning, critically thinking, informing, and yet it’s mainly been for naught. Even those who are on the same page are also overwhelmed, having reached their “saturation point,” so they won’t take any meaningful action. At this point, I simply despair for the world and can’t see any viable future anymore in the face of all this.

    2. These concerns are valid about the unvaccinated. I will say that many people in my family and friends are starting to be opposed to this vaccine and they were not anti-vaxxers previously. They wanted to argue facts that I would present to them and they are now seeing the light. This situation of our freedoms being taken away where vaccines are concerned and many other things will take all of us to take a stand. Get involved, get your voice in front of our legislators. Fight peacefully to win back our freedoms. This is America!
