No matter how I do this, Google or some other leftist group is going to label the truth as "harmful," "derogatory," or "unreliable," and demonetize this article, as they do with any truths that do not comply with the official leftist narrative, but we will "show our work," so to speak, by linking to historical data, showing the doublespeak in other pieces talking about long term effects, yet not providing any actual answers, and offering a different view than the liberal media on why a significant portion of Americans are "vaccine hesitant."
We're putting aside the political rhetoric being slung about, and the theories such as the depopulation agenda, and just focusing on the basic question:
"Does anyone, including Dr. Fauci, the CDC, medical doctors applying the vaccine to patients, vaccine researchers, scientists, big pharma, and the FDA, know what the long term effects of any of the COVID vaccines are?
The answer is not simple. They do know the dangers. They do know there has not been enough testing to answer that adequately.
Most importantly they do know that people have died unnecessarily from the vaccine, but thyey are still pushing it onto every American.
Factually, it isn't possible to know the long term effects of a vaccine that has only been around for less than two years, yet the immediate effects already documented, give a good idea of what they are hiding from the public about long term effects.
Which is one reason the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved any of the available vaccines, and the government is using the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to legalize the treatments.
Under section 564 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), when the Secretary of HHS declares that an emergency use authorization is appropriate, FDA may authorize unapproved medical products or unapproved uses of approved medical products to be used in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions caused by CBRN threat agents when certain criteria are met, including there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives. The HHS declaration to support such use must be based on one of four types of determinations of threats or potential threats by the Secretary of HHS, Homeland Security, or Defense.
Please note: a determination under section 319 of the Public Health Service Act that a public health emergency exists, such as the one issued on January 31, 2020, does not enable FDA to issue EUAs. On February 4, 2020, the HHS Secretary determined that there is a public health emergency that has a significant potential to affect national security or the health and security of United States citizens living abroad, and that involves the virus that causes COVID-19. Subsequent HHS declarations supporting use of EUAs and based on this determination are described in the blue boxes below.
With that said, in the articles I have been able to find regarding long term effects, we get a lot of doublespeak and caveats, but no actual answers, because as pointed out above, it is not possible to determine long term effects when the vaccines have not even been tested for two years, or even one full year before they started pushing for everyone to take them.

We see this type of hedging of bets in many articles. We'll address just a couple to make the point:
They describe some effects that happen in a short time after the vaccines, they list what those are and the percentages that suffer from them, as well as how side effects are tracked.
The we get to the disturbing quotes and information from the article linked above.
Lets break a few of them down, and as you read the quotes, remember this is an article that headlines with "Are there long-term side effects from the COVID vaccines?"
Goepfert says we already know enough to be confident the COVID vaccines are safe. Here is why, starting with the way vaccines work and continuing through strong evidence from vaccine history and the even stronger evidence from the responses of people who have received COVID-19 vaccines worldwide over the past six months.
Bold emphasis mine.
According to this "expert," the evidence he cites is "vaccine history." Yet, historically vaccines have taken years, and in many cases decades to create an effective, safe vaccine.
There is no history of a vaccine developed as fast as the COVID vaccines, nor of one that was as rapidly distributed and pushed onto the public.
So, he is claiming to base his assertions of vaccines history when there is no historical data on a vaccine like the COVID vaccine.
Then he claims the "stronger evidence" comes from those that received the vaccines over a six month period.
Is six months somehow considered "long term? I think not.
“Vaccines are just designed to deliver a payload and then are quickly eliminated by the body,” Goepfert said. “This is particularly true of the mRNA vaccines. mRNA degrades incredibly rapidly. You wouldn’t expect any of these vaccines to have any long-term side effects. And in fact, this has never occurred with any vaccine.”
The terminology of "wouldn't expect," isn't exactly a confidence builder, and again, he is using historical data on a product that has no comparable equal in the rushing of development, lack of adequate testing time, and no ability to know whether there will be long term effects.
The Strawman: They use the polio vaccine as their template of the scale and speed of the rollout of the polio vaccine, yet totally ignore the amount of time it took to research, develop, terminate, then restart the research and development of another.
We wouldn't have used polio as a comparison ourselves because medical technology has advanced since the 1950's, but they are trying to use it as a comparison, so here we go.
The earliest polio vaccine projects began in 1935. The 1955 date used in the original long term effects article was 1955, yet that vaccine was suspended in 1955 as well. In 1957 they decided to use the people from the former Democratic Republic of Congo as their test subjects.
The official testing and licensing of the final product occurred between 1959-1963. Polio was eradicated in 1994.
100 years from the first U.S. case of polio, and yet they are trying to compare the scale and speed of the rollout with present day COVID-19 vaccine?
Yet another bait and switch word game:
“Many people worry that these vaccines were ‘rushed’ into use and still do not have full FDA approval — they are currently being distributed under Emergency Use Authorizations,” Goepfert said. “But because we have had so many people vaccinated, we actually have far more safety data than we have had for any other vaccine, and these COVID vaccines have an incredible safety track record. There should be confidence in that.”
Safety data. At the risk of repeating myself, their "safety data" consists of less than two years, which doesn't come close to addressing "long term" effects at all.
MEDICAL WORKERS REFUSING VACCINE
The media would like to frame this issue as political, red states aren't getting the vaccine as much as blue states, all because they are "conspiracy theorists," yet there are a growing number of medical professionals refusing to get the COVID vaccines.
By July, the court cases have started against health care facilities that have fired hundreds of nurses for refusing the vaccine.
Are all of those nurses, over 100 from just one hospital, Houston Methodist Hospital, were terminated for refusing the vaccine.
Are they all conspiracy theorists as well? No.
Here is a quote from one of those nurses taking the hospital to court for firing her:
“I’m not anti-vax. I’ve had all my other vaccines, but this one was rushed and it didn’t have the proper research,” Bridges said, adding, “I would rather take my chances rather than get the shot.”
That right there is why so many Americans, especially those that no longer trust the MSM, are "vaccine hesitant."
The vaccine was rushed and there is no method to determine long term effects. Only time can do that.
We see a variety of reasons listed by Forbes for the general population and their reasons for not getting vaccinated, on June 30, 2021:
When asked why they had not been vaccinated, respondents listed the vaccines’ newness (20%), concerns over side effects (11%) and a distrust of the government (11%) as their main reasons, with a significant proportion just not wanting to (11%) or not believing they need one (11%).
Despite the media, and Democrat politicians assertions, it is not a political issue, it is a safety issue, all because the vaccine is too new, and no one can predict the long term effects.
For the majority of those refusing to get vaccinate, it isn't that they are anti-vax, it is that they are anti-wanting-to-be-guinea pigs.
This is not a pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine article, but rather a factual, linked piece on why vaccine hesitancy isn't a political issue, but rather the very real and logical and completely justified determination that a significant portion of Americans simply do not wish to be guinea pigs.
