Boosters Approved for 16- and 17-year-olds
Are we still doing science?

Governor Kate Brown is relying on the Western States Scientific Review Workgroup to support her agenda for Health Smart Cards. The workgroup, made up of nationally-acclaimed scientists with expertise in immunization and public health, has concurrently and independently reviewed the FDA’s actions related to COVID-19 vaccines. What isn’t apparent is that the workgroup, even though stacked with qualified people, simply does what any analyst could do -- read the reports sent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration by pharmaceuticals. There is no investigation by the workgroup. Ironically, the workgroup was convened in 2020 by several governors of western states because they did not trust the Trump administration to provide adequate scientific oversight of the vaccine approval process.

In the wake of Governor Brown announcing boosters are now approved by the workgroup for 16- and 17-year-olds, the FDA and Pfizer are being exposed for not being transparent. Her decision follows the FDA requesting courts to hide Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine data for 55 years that reports 1,223 death and 158,000 adverse reactions including fetal deaths and spontaneous abortions during a 90-day trial study of the vaccine.

As a result of vaccine mandates, Governor Brown still has serious problems at Oregon State Hospital having posted 12,382 vacancies. Taxpayers are supporting boosted pay by an extra $18 per hour not counting overtime to retain workers. She approved continued Oregon National Guard deployments of approximately 1,000 crisis response and other medical personnel for understaffed hospitals and the Oregon State Hospital through the end of December. Contract extension was also approved for Jogan Health Solutions staffing through mid-January 2022, covering pediatric and adult behavioral healthcare residential treatment programs, emergency staffing for hospitals with acute COVID-related needs, emergency medical services, long-term care facilities, vaccine hubs, homes for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other programs.

Oregon has spent more than $90 million to provide emergency staffing needs across the state. Some say that the solution is simple. Some say it could all be resolved if Governor Brown would terminate the vaccine mandate and adhere to three federal court rulings striking down vaccine mandates by the Biden administration.
