On August 19, Dr. Christina Parks, who holds a Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Michigan, created a sensation when she testified before a Michigan House committee in support of HB 4471.
Dr. Parks alleged that the U.S. government is misleading the public about how vaccines work and the risks posed by COVID variants to those vaccinated for the first round of SARS COVID-19.
The Michigan bill, which is pending final approval, would create the “Informed Consent in the Workplace Act” to prohibit discrimination against an employee or volunteer who declines or has not received certain vaccinations, including for COVID-19. The bill also prohibits requiring any qualified employee who “declines or has not received a specified vaccination” from being forced to wear a mask.
Dr. Parks said the CDC has acknowledged that the COVID immunizations, while mitigating symptoms, do not prevent transmission to others.
Indeed, fully vaccinated people who get a COVID-19 “breakthrough” infection can spread the virus to others even if they are not symptomatic, Centers for Disease Control Director Rochelle Walensky said on CNN on August 6.
“Our vaccines are working exceptionally well,” she told Wolf Blitzer. “They continue to work well with delta with regard to severe illness and death, but what they can’t do anymore is prevent transmission.”
In August, the Washington Post reported that the Centers for Disease Control re-issued a guidance that people wear masks at indoor gatherings because of “data from outbreak investigations and outside studies showing that vaccinated individuals infected with delta may be able to transmit the virus as easily as those who are unvaccinated. Vaccinated people infected with delta have measurable viral loads similar to those who are unvaccinated and infected with the variant.”
Dr. Parks noted that black Americans have one of the lowest rates of COVID immunization. They still distrust the government because of the Tuskegee experiments on black men conducted from 1930 to 1970.
In that scandalous episode, black men who were diagnosed with syphilis were not told about it, and received no treatments while scientists studied the impact of the disease on them.
Government directives barring people from working unless they show proof of COVID vaccination constitute a racist policy that more greatly affects black Americans, she said, and is bad policy for everyone.
Dr. Christina Parks received her Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Michigan in 1999. She did her graduate research in the field of cytokine signaling. She is currently a teacher at the Christian GRACE homeschooling organization in Michigan.
Cytokines are the chemicals that the immune system uses to communicate. Thus, Dr. Parks brings a wealth of knowledge about the molecular mechanisms by which vaccines may be causing injury to vulnerable immune systems.
Dr. Parks has been in the spotlight for her outspoken criticism of the misinformation campaign regarding hydroxychloroquine and how its use has been restricted for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
She is warning that there can be no medical freedom when doctors and scientists who have dared to tell the truth are silenced and punished. Dr. Parks has also been closely following the science around the world on the origin of the SARS CoV-2 as well as on the development of the fast-tracked Covid vaccines.
