If the US government would call the COVID-19 'vaccines' by what they really are, far fewer people would be lining up for their two shots. But that's not all. There's an even more sinister reason why the government might be willing to violate its own laws.
COVID-19 mRNA Shots Are Legally Not Vaccines
By referring to COVID-19 vaccines as “vaccines” rather than gene therapies, the U.S. government is violating its 15 U.S. Code Section 41, which regulates deceptive practices in medical claims
The mRNA injections are gene therapies that do not fulfill a single criteria or definition of a vaccine
COVID-19 “vaccines” do not impart immunity or inhibit transmissibility of the disease. They only are designed to lessen your infection symptoms if or when you get infected. As such, these products do not meet the legal or medical definition of a vaccine
Since a vast majority of people who test positive for SARS-CoV-2 have no symptoms at all, they’ve not even been able to establish a causal link between the virus and the clinical disease
By calling this experimental gene therapy technology a “vaccine,” they are circumventing liability for damages that would otherwise apply

Did you know that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines aren't vaccines in the medical and legal definition of a vaccine? They do not prevent you from getting the infection, nor do they prevent its spread. They're really experimental gene therapies.
I discussed this troubling fact in an interview with molecular biologist Judy Mikovits, Ph.D. While the Moderna and Pfizer mRNA shots are labeled as "vaccines," and news agencies and health policy leaders call them that, the actual patents for Pfizer's and Moderna's injections more truthfully describe them as "gene therapy," not vaccines.
Definition of 'Vaccine'
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,1 a vaccine is "a product that stimulates a person's immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease." Immunity, in turn, is defined as "Protection from an infectious disease," meaning that "If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected."
Neither Moderna nor Pfizer claim this to be the case for their COVID-19 "vaccines." In fact, in their clinical trials, they specify that they will not even test for immunity.
Unlike real vaccines, which use an antigen of the disease you're trying to prevent, the COVID-19 injections contain synthetic RNA fragments encapsulated in a nanolipid carrier compound, the sole purpose of which is to lessen clinical symptoms associated with the S-1 spike protein, not the actual virus.
They do not actually impart immunity or inhibit transmissibility of the disease. In other words, they are not designed to keep you from getting sick with SARS-CoV-2; they only are supposed to lessen your infection symptoms if or when you do get infected.
As such, these products do not meet the legal or medical definition of a vaccine, and as noted by David Martin, Ph.D., in the video above, "The legal ramifications of this deception are immense."
What Constitutes 'The Greater Good'?
Martin points to the 1905 Supreme Court ruling in Jacobson vs. Massachusetts,2 which essentially established that collective benefit supersedes individual benefit. To put it bluntly, it argued that it's acceptable for individuals to be harmed by public health directives provided it benefits the collective.
Now, if vaccination is a public health measure that is supposed to protect and benefit the collective, then it would need to a) ensure that the individual who is vaccinated is rendered immune from the disease in question; and b) that the vaccine inhibits transmission of the disease.
Only if these two outcomes can be scientifically proven can you say that vaccination protects and benefits the collective — the population as a whole. This is where we run into problems with the mRNA "vaccines."
Moderna's SEC filings, which Martin claims to have carefully reviewed, specifies and stresses that its technology is a "gene therapy technology." Originally, its technology was set up to be a cancer treatment, so more specifically, it's a chemotherapy gene therapy technology.
As noted by Martin, who would raise their hand to receive prophylactic chemotherapy gene therapy for a cancer you do not have and may never be at risk for? In all likelihood, few would jump at such an offer, and for good reason.
Moreover, states and employers would not be able to mandate individuals to receive chemotherapy gene therapy for a cancer they do not have. It simply would not be legal. Yet, they're proposing that all of humanity be forced to get gene therapy for COVID-19.
COVID-19 Vaccines — A Case of False Advertising
Now, if the COVID-19 vaccine really isn't a vaccine, why are they calling it that? While the CDC provides a definition of "vaccine," the CDC is not the actual law. It's an agency empowered by the law, but it does not create law itself. Interestingly enough, it's more difficult to find a legal definition of "vaccine," but there have been a few cases. Martin provides the following examples:
•Iowa code — "Vaccine means a specially prepared antigen administered to a person for the purpose of providing immunity." Again, the COVID-19 vaccines make no claim of providing immunity. They are only designed to lessen symptoms if and when you get infected.
•Washington state code — "Vaccine means a preparation of a killed or attenuated living microorganism, or fraction thereof …" Since Moderna and Pfizer are using synthetic RNA, they clearly do not meet this definition.
Being a manmade synthetic, the RNA used is not derived from anything that has at one point been alive, be it a whole microorganism or a fraction thereof. The statute continues to specify that a vaccine "upon immunization stimulates immunity that protects us against disease ..."
So, in summary, "vaccine" and "immunity" are well-defined terms that do not match the end points specified in COVID-19 vaccine trials. The primary end point in these trials is: "Prevention of symptomatic COVID-19 disease." Is that the same as "immunity"? No, it is not.
There Are More Problems Than One
But there's another problem. Martin points out that "COVID-19 disease" has been defined as a series of clinical symptoms. Moreover, there's no causal link between SARS-CoV-2, the virus, and the set of symptoms known as COVID-19.
How is that, you might ask? It's simple, really. Since a vast majority of people who test positive for SARS-CoV-2 have no symptoms at all, they've not been able to establish a causal link between the virus and the clinical disease.
Here's yet another problem: The primary end point in the COVID-19 vaccine trials is not an actual vaccine trial end point because, again, vaccine trial end points have to do with immunity and transmission reduction. Neither of those was measured.
What's more, key secondary end points in Moderna's trial include "Prevention of severe COVID-19 disease, and prevention of infection by SARS-CoV-2." However, by its own admission, Moderna did not actually measure infection, stating that it was too "impractical" to do so.
That means there's no evidence of this gene therapy having an impact on infection, for better or worse. And, if you have no evidence, you cannot fulfill the U.S. Code requirement that states you must have "competent and reliable scientific evidence … substantiating that the claims are true."
Why Are They Calling Them Vaccines?
As noted by Martin, you cannot have a vaccine that does not meet a single definition of a vaccine. So, again, what would motivate these companies, U.S. health agencies and public health officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci to lie and claim that these gene therapies are in fact vaccines when, clearly, they are not?
If they actually called it what it is, namely "gene therapy chemotherapy," most people would — wisely — refuse to take it. Perhaps that's one reason for their false categorization as vaccines. But there may be other reasons as well.
Here, Martin strays into conjecture, as we have no proof of their intentions. He speculates that the reason they're calling this experimental gene therapy technology a "vaccine" is because by doing so, they can circumvent liability for damages.
You're being lied to. Your own government is violating its own laws. They have shut down practitioners around the country, time and time again, for violating what are called 'deceptive practices in medical claims.' Guess what? They're doing exactly that thing. ~ David Martin, Ph.D.
