The government is not being transparent about the risks’: Inventor of MRNA vaccines says people should not be forced to take experimental COVID vaccines because risks aren’t known and under 18s and those who’ve had virus shouldn’t take it
- Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of mRNA technology that’s used in the COVID vaccine, said young adults and teens shouldn’t be forced to get the vaccine
- He told Fox’s Tucker Carlson that there isn’t enough risk-benefit analysis data for that age group
- Earlier today, a CDC advisory group said there is a ‘likely link’ between rare cases of heart inflammation in that age group and the COVID-19 vaccine
The inventor of mRNA vaccines said ‘the government is not being transparent about the risks’ of the COVID-19 vaccine after YouTube deleted a video where he discussed potential risks for young adults and teens.
Dr. Robert Malone, who invented the mRNA technology that’s now being used in the COVID-19 vaccine, told Fox’s Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night that there isn’t enough data about the risks for these age groups and doesn’t believe they should be forced to get vaccinated.
‘I don’t think the benefits outweigh the risks in that cohort,’ said Malone, referring to people in the 18 to 22 age bracket, ‘but unfortunately the risk-benefit analysis is not being done.’https://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.472.0_en.html#goog_18743337Read Morenull
‘My concern is I know there are risks but we don’t have access to the data,’ Malone said. ‘And so, I am of the opinion that people have the right to decide whether to accept vaccines or not, especially since these are experimental vaccines.’
Malone shared his concerns the same day that an advisory group for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say there is a ‘likely link’ between rare cases of heart inflammation in adolescents and young adults and the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.
The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines use mRNA technology, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine uses the more traditional virus-based technology.
Malone says on his website that he invented the field of messenger mRNA therapeutics in 1988.
‘His discoveries in mRNA non viral delivery systems are considered the key to the current COVID-19 vaccine strategies,’ his biography says.

His warnings come as a presentation was released earlier Wednesday: The COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Technical (VaST) Work Group discussed nearly 500 reports of the heart inflammation, known as myocarditis, in vaccinated adults under age 30.
The group of doctors said he risk of myocarditis or pericarditis following vaccination with the mRNA-based shots in adolescents and young adults is notably higher after the second dose and in males.
