In conclusion, AFD suggests that the Covid-19 experimental vaccine should not be distributed to those under 50, and in doing so, is reckless.
In medicine, the guiding principle is “First, do no harm.” Widely distributing a COVID-19 experimental vaccine before adequately addressing and clinically evaluating the above concerns is reckless. This is especially true in adults under 50 years old who have an infection survival rate of about 99.98%, and even lower in those without high-risk comorbidities. While “first, do no harm” may not be a guiding principle for politicians or health authorities, it still resides in the forefront of the minds of frontline physicians.
America’s Frontline Doctors’ holds that it is unethical to advocate for the vaccine to persons under 50. The risk and safety evidence based upon trials cannot be justified in younger persons. It is therefore prohibited. If pharmaceutical companies, private businesses or the government mandate or coerce persons to comply with unethical policies for which there is substantial evidence of likely harm, and indeed a person is harmed, that person’s grievances must be adjudicated in light of the future defendant’s knowingly willful misconduct and AFLDS will do everything within its power to assist such plaintiffs. While we sincerely hope this will never be the case, and we are taking all measures to reduce that possibility, should that unfortunate situation come to pass, we expect to assist hundreds of thousands of patients in class action lawsuits.
