On April 19th, Project Veritas released a recording of the CEO of AstraZeneca claiming back in December of 2020 that certain individuals who are immunocompromised – which he said could be in the “millions” – should avoid getting the COVID shots.
A source from within AstraZeneca provided Project Veritas with the December 2020 recording where company CEO Pascal Soriot was discussing how the COVID shots could adversely impact the immunocompromised population.
“If you have an immune disease, lupus, or some other immune condition, you cannot – or multiple sclerosis, you can’t be vaccinated. So, there are millions of people in the world that will need a protection that cannot be coming from a vaccine. So, the long-acting antibody has enormous potential.”
Despite Soriot mentioning the aforementioned during a Zoom call in late 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) asserted that the AstraZeneca iteration of the COVID shots were safe for immunocompromised persons back in March of 2022.
Furthermore, the WHO that the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE), claimed “immunocompromised persons should be offered an additional dose of vaccine. This is due to the fact that this group is less likely to respond adequately to vaccination following a standard primary vaccination series and are at higher risk of severe COVID-19 disease.”
But what was of particular note during the recorded conversation, Soriot spoke about the benefits of monoclonal antibodies, mentioning how the treatment, when administered in response to someone testing positive for COVID, could render longer-lasting protection than what has been shown with the round of COVID shots.
“This long-acting antibody is quite unique because this is the only combination that potentially will last more than six months, up to potentially 12 months and protect people for a long period of time.”
While the benefits of monoclonal antibodies were known to be effective in treating patients who’d come down with the virus for some time, the FDA stripped the emergency use authorization for two monoclonal antibody treatments back in January of 2022, prompting some harsh criticism from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
During a January 25th press conference, Governor DeSantis lambasted the Biden administration for yanking the authorization for the lifesaving treatments.
“The Biden administration, which revoked – outright revoked – authorization for two very popular monoclonal antibody treatments that the state of Florida really pioneered over the summer…We have had people use it, and we’ve had good results…People have a right to access these treatments, and to revoke it on this basis is just fundamentally wrong.”
Project Veritas founder and CEO James O’Keefe posed the question of why officials would impose these mandates around the COVID shots when there was a concern back in late 2020 – by the CEO of AstraZeneca, no less – about the harm that could upon the immunocompromised.
“If the CEO of one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies realized back in 2020 that antibody treatments are necessary for the immunocompromised, why would governments around the world force vaccine mandates when millions of people are at risk if they got it?”
Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
