Operation Warp Velocity (OWS), a joint operation between U.S. Well being and Human Providers (HHS) and the Division of Protection, continues to be shrouded in secrecy, however little by little info is rising that long-term monitoring of the U.S. public is a part of the plan.
At face worth, OWS is a public-private partnership tasked with producing therapeutics and a fast-tracked COVID-19 vaccine1 — 300 million doses’ value which might be meant to be made out there beginning in January 2021.2
However it seems the involvement does not finish there. Relatively than simply making certain a vaccine is produced and made out there for those that need it, Moncef Slaoui, the chief scientific adviser for Operation Warp Velocity, dubbed the coronavirus vaccine czar,3 mentioned in an interview with The Wall Avenue Journal that the rollout will embrace “extremely exact … monitoring programs.”4,5
Their goal? “To make sure that sufferers every get two doses of the identical vaccine and to watch them for adversarial well being results.”6 In an interview with The New York Occasions, Slaoui described it as a “very lively pharmaco vigilance surveillance system.”7
What Will the Vaccine Monitoring System Entail?
That is the No. 1 query, and one which hasn’t been answered, at the very least not formally. “Whereas Slaoui himself was brief on specifics relating to this ‘pharmacovigilance surveillance system,'” information outlet People Are Free reported, “the few official paperwork from OWS which were publicly launched provide some particulars about what this technique might appear like and the way lengthy it’s anticipated to ‘monitor’ the very important indicators and whereabouts of Individuals who obtain a Warp Velocity vaccine.”8
One of many paperwork, titled “From the Manufacturing facility to the Frontlines: The Operation Warp Velocity Technique for Distributing a COVID-19 Vaccine,” was launched by HHS.9 It additionally mentions using pharmacovigilance surveillance together with Part 4 (post-licensure) scientific trials with a purpose to assess the vaccines’ long-term security, since “some applied sciences have restricted earlier knowledge on security in people.”10
The report, which lays out a method for distributing a COVID-19 vaccine, from allocation and distribution to administration and extra, continues:11
“The key goal of pharmacovigilance is to find out every vaccine’s efficiency in real-life eventualities, to check efficacy, and to find any rare and uncommon unintended effects not recognized in scientific trials. OWS can even use pharmacovigilance analytics, which serves as one of many devices for the continual monitoring of pharmacovigilance knowledge.
Strong analytical instruments can be used to leverage giant quantities of knowledge and the advantages of utilizing such knowledge throughout the worth chain, together with regulatory obligations. Pharmacovigilance offers well timed details about the protection of every vaccine to sufferers, healthcare professionals, and the general public, contributing to the safety of sufferers and the promotion of public well being.”
Comparable language was reiterated in an October 2020 perspective article revealed in The New England Journal of Drugs (NEJM), written by Slaoui and Dr. Matthew Hepburn.12
Hepburn is a former program supervisor for the U.S. Protection Superior Analysis Tasks Company (DARPA), the place he oversaw the event of ProfusA,13 an implantable biosensor that enables an individual’s physiology to be examined at a distance by way of smartphone connectivity. ProfusA can also be backed by Google, the biggest knowledge mining firm on this planet.
Writing in NEJM, the duo writes, “As a result of some applied sciences have restricted earlier knowledge on security in people, the long-term security of those vaccines can be rigorously assessed utilizing pharmacovigilance surveillance methods.”14
‘Traceability’ a Key Tenet of Operation Warp Velocity
People Are Free additionally references an OWS infographic,15 which particulars the COVID-19 vaccine distribution and administration course of. One of many 4 key tenets is “traceability,” which incorporates confirming which of the accepted vaccines had been administered no matter location (public or non-public), reminding recipients to return for a second dose and making certain that the right second dose is run.
That phrase — pharmacovigilance — is used once more, this time as a heading inferring that the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration and the U.S. Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention can be concerned in “24-month put up trial monitoring for adversarial results/extra security characteristic.” Pharmacovigilance, also referred to as drug security, usually refers back to the assortment, evaluation, monitoring and prevention of adversarial results from drugs and different therapies.16
Passive reporting programs for adversarial occasions, just like the Vaccines Hostile Occasion Reporting System, exist already and are managed by the FDA and CDC.
Nevertheless, a report launched by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg College of Public Well being, Heart for Well being Safety means that passive programs that depend on individuals to ship of their experiences must be made into an “lively security surveillance system directed by the CDC that screens all vaccine recipients — maybe by brief message service or different digital mechanisms — with standards based mostly on the World Well being Group International Vaccine Security Initiative.”17,18
What’s extra, in keeping with People Are Free, “Regardless of the claims in these paperwork that the ‘pharmacovigilance surveillance system’ would intimately contain the FDA, high FDA officers said in September that they had been barred from attending OWS conferences and advised reporters they might not clarify the operation’s group or when or with what frequency its management meets.”19 STAT Information additional reported:20
“The Meals and Drug Administration, which is enjoying a important function within the response to the pandemic, has nearly no visibility into OWS — however that is by design … The FDA has arrange a firewall between the overwhelming majority of workers and the initiative to separate any regulatory choices from coverage or budgetary choices.
FDA officers are nonetheless allowed to work together with corporations creating merchandise for OWS, however they’re barred from sitting in on discussions relating to different focuses of OWS, like procurement, funding or distribution.”
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg College of Public Well being, Heart for Well being Safety, by the best way, has ties to Event 201, a pandemic preparedness simulation for a “novel coronavirus” that occurred in October 2019, together with Dark Winter, one other simulation that occurred in June 2001, which predicted main points of the following 2001 anthrax assaults.
Hepburn additionally reportedly “ruffled feathers” throughout a June 2020 presentation to the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices as a result of he supplied no data-rich slides, that are usually a part of such shows, and, STAT Information reported, “A number of members requested Hepburn pointed questions he pointedly didn’t reply.”21
Google and Oracle Contracted to Gather Vaccine Information
Google and Oracle, a multinational pc expertise company headquartered in California, within the coronary heart of Silicon Valley, have been contracted to “gather and monitor vaccine knowledge” as a part of OWS’ surveillance programs,22 a partnership Slaoui reportedly revealed in his Wall Avenue Journal interview.23 In keeping with People Are Free:24
“If the Warp Velocity contracts which were awarded to Google and Oracle are something just like the Warp Velocity contracts awarded to most of its taking part vaccine corporations, then these contracts grant these corporations diminished federal oversight and exemptions from federal legal guidelines and laws designed to guard taxpayer pursuits within the pursuit of the work stipulated within the contract.
It additionally makes them basically resistant to Freedom of Info Act requests. But, in distinction to the unacknowledged Google and Oracle contracts, vaccine corporations have publicly disclosed that they acquired OWS contracts, simply not the phrases or particulars of these contracts. This means that the Google and Oracle contracts are much more secretive.”
In an interview with investigative journalist Whitney Webb (see Mercola hyperlink above beneath “Darkish Winter”), it is also revealed that Slaoui, a long-time head of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccine division, is a number one proponent of bioelectronic drugs, which is using injectable or implantable expertise for the aim of treating nerve situations.
The MIT Expertise assessment has referred to it as hacking the nervous system. However it additionally means that you can monitor the physiology of the human physique from the within.
Slaoui can also be invested in an organization known as Galvani Bioelectronics, which was cofounded by a Google subsidiary. “So, you will have Google being contracted to watch this pharmacovigilance surveillance system that goals to watch the physiology and the human physique for two years,” Webb says.
“After which you will have the ties to the ProfusA mission,” she provides, “which oddly sufficient is meant to work contained in the human physique for 24 months — the precise window they’ve mentioned can be used to watch individuals after the primary [vaccine] dose.”
The battle of curiosity is huge, partially as a result of Google owns YouTube, which has been banning our movies, a majority of that are interviews with well being specialists sharing their medical or scientific experience and viewpoints on COVID-19, since June 2020. As famous by People Are Free:25
“With Google now formally a part of OWS, it appears seemingly that any considerations about OWS’s excessive secrecy and the conflicts of curiosity of lots of its members (significantly Moncef Slaoui and Matt Hepburn) in addition to any considerations about Warp Velocity vaccine security, allocation and/or distribution could also be labeled ‘COVID-19 vaccine misinformation’ and faraway from YouTube.”
Is Whole Surveillance Set to Develop into the New Regular?
OWS, reasonably than being directed by public well being officers, is closely dominated by army, expertise corporations and U.S. intelligence businesses, likening it to a successor for Whole Info Consciousness (TIA), a program managed by DARPA that sprang up after the 9/11 assaults.
On the time, TIA was looking for to gather Individuals’ medical information, fingerprints and different biometric knowledge, together with DNA and information relating to non-public funds, journey and media consumption.26 In keeping with Webb (once more, consult with the Mercola hyperlink earlier, “Darkish Winter”):
“We now know, for instance, that the NSA and the Division of Homeland Safety are immediately concerned in Operation Warp Velocity, however they will not actually say precisely what elements they’re doing. However there are some indications as to what they might be concerned with.
And the truth that Silicon Valley corporations which were identified to collaborate with intelligence [agencies] for the aim of spying on harmless Individuals — Google and Oracle, for instance — are going to be concerned on this surveillance system … for everybody that will get the vaccine.
It is actually alarming, and it appears to level to the achievement of an agenda that was tried to be pushed via or foisted on the American public after 9/11, known as Whole Info Consciousness, which was managed, initially, by DARPA.
It was about utilizing medical knowledge and non-medical knowledge — basically all knowledge about you — to forestall terror assaults earlier than they might occur, and in addition to forestall bioterror assaults and even forestall naturally occurring illness outbreaks.
Numerous the identical initiatives proposed beneath that authentic program after 9/11 have basically been resurrected, with up to date expertise, beneath the guise of combating COVID-19.”
A key distinction is that TIA was rapidly defunded by Congress after important public backlash, together with considerations that TIA would undermine private privateness. Within the case of OWS, there’s little damaging press and media shops are overwhelmingly supportive of the operation as a solution to resolve the COVID-19 disaster.
However what if it isn’t really about COVID-19 in any respect, however represents one thing larger, one thing that is been within the works for a long time? As People Are Free places it:27
“The total-surveillance agenda that started with TIA and that has been resurrected via Warp Velocity predated COVID-19 by a long time.
Its architects and proponents have labored to justify these excessive and invasive surveillance applications by advertising this agenda because the ‘resolution’ to no matter Individuals are most afraid of at any given time. It has little or no to do with ‘public well being’ and every part to do with complete management.”
