Dr. Aseem Malhotra, a highly published cardiologist, who seeks to give his patients “ethical, evidence-based medical practice,” has changed his stance on mRNA vaccines. Once viewing them as safe and effective, he said that after his father’s cardiac arrest in 2021, he realized he needed to dig into vaccine safety and efficacy data.
“Once I had spent time critically analyzing the data on the COVID-19 vaccines, it became very clear to me that the efficacy of this particular novel technology, if you like—the mRNA products—was very, very poor, certainly in comparison to traditional vaccines, and the harms were unprecedented,” Malhotra said during a Dec. 10 interview for Epoch TV’s “American Thought Leaders” program.
This is a 180-degree shift for Malhotra, who has received two doses of the mRNA vaccine. He said, “under, clearly at that time, a false belief [that] I was going to protect my patients.”
He also publicly encouraged others to get the vaccines, due to his belief that traditional vaccines are some of the safest pharmacological interventions in the history of medicine.
However, after his father suddenly died, Malhotra found new evidence, prompting him to reevaluate his position on the mRNA vaccines, realizing that the new technology wasn’t as safe as expected.
“As the evidence changed, I then had to change my view and my opinion,” he said.
Malhotra said he does not regret taking the vaccine or promoting it, because he believed he was making the best decision based on the evidence at the time. The new evidence came after his previously healthy father was vaccinated, and suddenly died from cardiac arrest.
The public was led to believe the vaccines would stop transmission of the virus and prevent people from infection from COVID-19, he said.
“People weren’t told the information in a truthful way at the time, and it did not evolve with time,” said Malhotra.
Malhotra claimed that regulatory agencies in the United States and United Kingdom, as well as the pharmaceutical industry, “knew that it was never going to have any significant effect on preventing transmission anyway, and that’s the lie that was perpetuated.”
The original randomized control trial showed that just 1 out of 119 people could avoid infection after getting the mRNA shot.
The public was not told the truth about the chances of dying from COVID-19 or the risks and benefits of taking the mRNA vaccines, he said.
For a middle-aged patient, “the data tells us that the benefit for you taking it, preventing you dying from COVID, is 1 in 2000. … The risk of a serious adverse event from the vaccine for you—disability, life-changing hospitalization—is at least 1 in 800,” said Malhotra.
Malhotra argued that the mRNA vaccine should not have been approved based on the fact that the original randomized control trials that led to approval also revealed that people were more likely to suffer a serious adverse effect than be hospitalized with COVID-19.
Malhotra blasted Big Pharma, saying they put profits before safety and that doctors, academic institutions and medical journals collude with industry for financial gain.
There are many examples of Big Pharma sacrificing the safety of the public by selling unsafe drugs, even when the industry knows the product causes a high rate of death or disability, said Malhotra.
“We have a word for that. It’s called fraud. They actually function like a psychopathic entity,” said Malhotra.
The phrase “psychopathic entity” was coined by Dr. Robert Hare, a forensic psychologist who claimed that companies such as these will function without concern for public safety and no sense of wrongdoing or remorse when the public is harmed.
Malhotra also said that most doctors don’t realize the amount of control Big Pharma exerts on the medical profession and public health. Rather, most doctors trust pharmaceutical companies and government regulatory agencies.
Malhotra believes that to help people understand the “cold hard facts” about the vaccines, and public health in general, it’s important to communicate with empathy, remembering that many have been traumatized by the mainstream pandemic narratives.
“The other aspect is this phenomenon called willful blindness,” said Malhotra, a phenomenon where people will ignore certain facts because they do not wish to deal with conflict and loss. This could be observed in situations such as the Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal or the Holocaust, he said.
He said that he analyzed the data and published his findings in a bid to create a safe space for others in the medical community in a similar position.
“It’s okay to change your mind. It’s okay to say the information has changed. It’s okay to to talk about it,” he said. “And I think that’s the challenge we have right now.”
Malhotra said that the vaccines for COVID were allowed to be distributed widely while still in an experimental phase, because over the years, the medical system was corrupted. “And the only way we’re going to overcome it and move forward constructively is if we all work together.”
We must return to honesty, said Malhotra, giving people truthful information, and allowing facts to speak for themselves because of the lies and misinformation that people were fed during the pandemic.
