Dear Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorates,

Members of the public have long argued for full transparency of trial data to allow clinical trials by vaccine makers to be independently analysed. An important priority for many will be to weigh up the known risk/benefit profile of the vaccine against need. This requires understanding the danger posed by the virus, the virulence of which is likely weakening, as well as knowing the extent of naturally-acquired immunity. It should also take into account other potential interactions, such as the observed correlation between flu vaccination and COVID-related deaths.

Several studies have proved that herd immunity thresholds that interrupt the progress of transmission might be as low as 10% from naturally acquired immunity, as compared with over 60% if immunity is to be gained by randomised vaccination. The reality is that it will take many more months to compare the complex pattern of sustained immunity from memory B and T cells, and it may well be that exposure to the real virus elicits a more robust and persistent response than exposure to, for example, endogenously produced spike protein following injection of synthetic messenger RNA sequences.

Before an EUA or unrestricted license is issued for a covid-19 vaccine for which PCR results are the primary evidence of infection, all “endpoints” or COVID-19 cases used to determine vaccine efficacy in the Phase 3 or 2/3 trials should have their infection status confirmed by Sanger sequencing, given the high cycle thresholds used in some trials. High cycle thresholds, or Ct values, in RT-qPCR test results have been widely acknowledged to lead to a too high false positive (93%).
If the assignment of cases and non-cases during the course of the trial is not accurate, the vaccine will not have been properly tested. If the vaccine is not properly tested, important public policy decisions regarding its use will be based on misleading evidence. The medical and economic consequences to the nation could hardly be higher.

The lack of established treatment protocols for immune backfiring known as Antibody Dependent Enhancement, when antibodies enhance uptake of the virus instead of neutralizing, should set off alarms for this entire mRNA vaccine program. According to virologists (e.g. Dr James Lloyds) "All SARS-CoV-2 immunogenic epitopes have similarity to human proteins except one; which implies that:
• Roughly one-third of the potentially targeted human proteins (putative autoantigens) are key players in the adaptive immune system;
• The list of viral/human protein matches provides clues on which epitopes or parts of epitopes might be involved in the immunopathogenesis of COVID-19 disease from SARS-CoV-2 infection;
• It also indicates which epitopes might be responsible for autoimmunological pathogenic priming due to prior infection or following exposure to SARS-CoV-2 or relatives following vaccination;
• These epitopes should be excluded from vaccines under development to minimize autoimmunity due to risk of pathogenic priming. In case of Moderna’ and Pfizer’s vaccine the risk is about 20%”.
Said risk include Guillain-Barré syndrome, Transverse myelitis (inflaming the spinal cord), Narcolepsy and other neurological disorders, Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (autoimmune musculoskeletal diseases including respiratory and cardiovascular systems).

Under the maxim ‘Primum non nocere’ (first, do no harm) and the Govt.' duty to practice Transparency and Accountability towards its actions, as for the public to come to an informed consent; the Govt has to provide the necessary data regarding the risks from a covid-19 vaccine: including the evidence of that its manufactures (e.g. Pfizer) provided, and you can provide:
1. Full disclosure of raw data from studies and trails to allow independent analysis;
2. Full transparency in relation to safety and efficacy trials;
3. Full transparency over the vaccine platform(s) and technology used for commercial vaccines;
4. Conduct of comprehensive studies evaluating the independent risk form adjutants (additives);
5. Full disclosure of vaccine composition in commercial formulations;
6. Full transparency of all adverse event data in all studies and post-marketing surveillance;
7. Clarification of eligibility and criteria for no-fault vaccine injury payments or compensation;
8. Clarification of nature and extent of government indemnity if manufactures in the event in jury;
9. Public dissemination of extent of naturally acquired (herd) immunity prior to vaccine roll-out;
10. Engagement of due democratic process if a vaccination is imposed.

In case you fail to provide the details of the abovementioned issues, it implies that the Govt. treats the public health as a political- and corporative financial commodity and that the Govt, by issuing or imposing said covid-19 vaccine; is breaching the Declaration of Helsinki and the Nuremberg Convention

Dear Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorates,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorates's handling of my FOI request 'Covid-19 vaccine’ risks; have these been disclosed?'.

This Govt- reply raises the suspicion that the role of whether information should be made available for the public is to be left to “trusted people in a position to make an objective assessment of the public interest”: it being merely a construction best left to the paternally learned: MHRA.

This Govt- reply stifles ‘informed consent’ to a novelty vaccine which adverse reactions (ARDs) are likely to occur in a high percentage of those who do get inoculated. The American NIH published a list of potential ADRs that includes Guillain Barre Syndrome, Transverse Myelitis, Encephalitis, Stroke, Arthritis and even Death among other conditions. In the USA in the first 2 weeks of implementing said vaccine 2 have died and a relative high percentage (1 - 5 %) are moderate to severely ill. MHRA does not have evidence that such side effects will not occur, and yet these ADRs are not mentioned in their leaflet.

The covid19 vaccine contain polyethylene glycol (PEG); incidences of hypersensitivity reactions to PEG are increasing, although many with PEG hypersensitivity go undiagnosed, thus presenting an unreasonable hazard to administering these vaccines to a population, the vast majority of which is proven by science to have anti-PEG antibodies. Investigators who once assumed that the polymer was largely “inert” are now questioning its biocompatibility and warning about PEGylated particles’ promotion of tumour growth and adverse immune responses that include “probably underdiagnosed” life-threatening anaphylaxis.

NHS Scotland is devolved from that of England and the Scottish Govt- cannot rely on the opinions from MHRA whose review on Pfizer’s covid-19 vaccine is merely a selective copy and paste exercise of Pfizer’s script published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Whose editors posed to said script questions: "Will unexpected safety issues arise when the number grows to millions and possibly billions of people (as only about 20,000 people were in the vaccine trial)? Will side effects emerge with longer follow-up? As implementing a vaccine that requires two doses is challenging: What happens to the inevitable large number of recipients who miss their second dose? How long will the vaccine remain effective? Does the vaccine prevent asymptomatic disease and limit transmission?" Yet MHRA left said questions unanswered. And MHRA failed to do a critical analysis of Pfizer’s data: a necessity which the MHRA has transferred to the public’s reaction on being inoculated with said vaccine. This as an experiment: the public is now implemented to be said vaccine genuine pig.

The Scottish Government and NHS Scotland being under the obligation to safeguard its population against said vaccine ARDS: it has a duty to provide the information asked in this FOI: a duty which the Scottish Govt- cannot transfer to MHRA or Pfizer.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Dear Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorates,
In 2020, Scotland there were 64,085 all-cause deaths which is 6,325 more than the previous 5yrs. average (57,760). Yet 8,347 were registered as Covid19 deaths; of which 86% (717842) were over 65 yrs. of which 5000 died in a nursing home due to them being restricted to health care, social contact, and basic care. According to ONS only 6% of the total Covid19 death had no serious comorbid condition. So, in Scotland only 500 -1,500 deaths were caused by Covid19 alone. In 1993 there were also 64,085 all-cause deaths; it includes an excess of about 4,000 that was attributed to A (H3N2) type flu: for which there was no specific policy on flu death registration as under the Corona Act 2020.

NHS Scotland policies are induced by the MHRA and the vaccine industry lobby; as a consensus science. Flu vaccination started in about 2001, and the Scottish annual average all-cause deaths of 56,000 raised along with the raise of the vaccine uptake. The 2019-20 flu vaccines still contain trimethyl (mercury), aluminium, formaldehyde, aldehydes, and aspartame which destroys the immune system, and its ARDs causes symptoms similar as ‘covid19’.

The NHS England data tables for years between 2013 and 2020 show the 2 annual mortality peaks always in week 14 and 51: these peaks being non-variable and sharp: is non-seasonal. Compare that to the weekly tables for these yrs. of the German deceased population: these show a seasonal pattern, peaks being blunt between week 5- 10 and 49 -52. The UK -vs -Germany their uptake of the flu vaccine = 73% -vs- 49%; and Covid19 mortality per million = 489 (UK) -vs- 93 (Germany). Comparisons between countries with a high flu vaccine uptake -vs- a low uptake; and with a high -vs- low covid19 mortality; proves a significant correlation between the flu vaccination rate that that of the Covid19 mortality.

Regarding Pfizer and Moderna vaccine initial data reported by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it shows a side effect of 2.79%, and 0.1-1% death. If you extrapolate that to the total Scottish population of 5,463,300, we may be looking at 152,426 people suffering vaccine injuries, and 5,000 deaths (if everyone gets vaccinated). The number of those age 65+ is 983,394 who have a two-fold likely-hood of ARDs and death; if 80% of them gets vaccinated then it can be estimated that 65+ will 4000 suffer badly and 1000 will die in excess. The recent NHS Eng. & Scotland Data show that since the covid19 vaccine uptake: the mortality for 75+ raises to that as of week 14/15 in 2020. It's likely that the mortality in week 14/15 of 2021 will be similar as that in 2020, and it’s likely that this will be attributed to a new strain of covid19. Yet who is benefiting from this genocide?

For Scotland it is predicted that its employment rate will at its best increase with 1 %: whilst, its pensioner’s population will increase with 28%, which has a very high number age 90+. Which is a serious problem for which our Govt- seems to be no other answer than to ........... the pensioners.

The above provided facts shows that NHS Scotland and the Govt. have a case to answer towards its vaccine policies: It is in the public interest that you fully answer this FOI request.

Bartholomeus Lakeman

Our References: 202000118681 & FOI request-710650-1039ab81

Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorates using 17(1) of FOISA and referring to the MHRA is a breach of the Govt‘s legal obligation to the Public safety; on the ground that:

1) The Govt and you have pledged, by the COVID-19 Battle Plan, that “Public safety is our top priority”; and yet UK Govt and you failed to disclose that the raw data of the covid19 vaccines will only be released after its trial phase III; Oct. 2022/Feb. 2023. Until that date, the content of these vaccines is not fully disclosed; no proper peer- review can be made regarding their efficacy and safety; anyone accepting the ‘vaccine’ accepts to be its Guinea pig; for this there is no insurance cover; and as there can be no informed consent; its administrator is breaching the Nuremberg code.

2) The Govt and you have knowledge of that Bill Gates funds the WHO, GAVI, JVCI, the Medicine Health Regulation Authority (MHRA) and the manufacturing of the Covid19 vaccines, and that the drafting of Reg 174 shows that it’s the manufacturer who has authorised the administration of its vaccine. And that B. Gates has demanded that vaccines should only be distributed when the Gov. agree to indemnify against lawsuits and censures critical questions about vaccines’ adverse drug reaction. As via his funds to MHRA and the Manchester University since 2017; is the research and the promoting of the flu vaccination in the UK orchestrated by G Gates. He also funds the BBC, the Guardian and via his influence over social media; are questions about vaccines censured. Whilst there is a direct mathematical correlation between the 2020-21 flu and COVID ‘vaccine’ roll-outs in the UK and the deaths which the Govt claim to be COVID deaths during the same period. Herewith do the MHRA and you treat the public health care as a corporative financial commodity.

3) The UK Govt and you failed to disclose that the ‘science’ and data relied upon by the WHO, in declaring SARS-CoV-2 to be a worldwide ‘pandemic’ on 11/03/2020 (when there were, outside China, 83 covid19 cases), was none other than the discredited Imperial College Model; and you failed to disclose that PHE’ Advisory Committee of Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) on 19 March (when there were, outside China, on a population of 6,4 billion covid19 44,000 cases (0.00007%)) advised SAGE that Covid19 infection could not be classified as a High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID) – before 19/23 March 2020 when was commended the Coronavirus Bill 2020, and Public Health England [PHE] received $500,000 from the US Government to “fast-track the COVID vaccine”.

4) The UK Govt and you failed to disclose that multiple WHO approved flu ‘vaccines’ are known to cause fatal adverse events in 377 out of every 100,000 healthy adults injected, whilst ‘influenza’ normally kills around 388 per year. According to a leaked WHO report 0.39% died from the flu vaccine of 2019 and so it might be from Covid19 vaccine: it predicts that in the UK 26,400 will eventually die from the experimental vaccines [The ingredients in every UK licensed COVID ‘vaccine’ are very similar to these 2019-21 mRNA spiked flu ‘vaccines’, in which case they will have comparable mortality rates.]

5) The UK Govt and you failed to disclose that the COVID jabs do not meet the scientific and legal definitions of a vaccine, and that its manufactures stated that it and its studies were not designed to prevent a Covid19 infection transmission or to secure immunity, and that these are filed as mRNA treatments or gene therapies https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/... 241112/d635330df1.htm, which lays open the floodgates to future civil proceedings for misrepresentation, fraud and damages [irrespective of the purported indemnity granted to ‘vaccine’ companies and those who administer their products in the Coronavirus Act 2020].

6) The UK Govt and you failed to disclose that: Pfizer and Moderna vaccine have to be repeated many times, as there is no long-term immunity from the Antibodies (Ab) which are to be provoked by the vaccine’s mRNA. This mRNA is inserted into a Nanoparticle that is thermostable and cannot be broken-down and can penetrate into all tissues and cells and so be transferred via blood, sperm into a non-vaccinated person, and into –as a gene therapy modify - our DNA. Oncologist at Sloan Kettering discover that this foreign mRNA inactivates tumour-suppressing proteins and so promotes cancer. Its nanoparticles are coated in polyethylene glycol (PEG) which can cause in 70% of the population allergic reactions (e.g., anaphylactic shock). Another serious risk is Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (https://www.bmj.com/content/371/bmj.m434...) and auto-immune reaction as an attack on our own body, e.g., Multi organ failure, Transfer myelitis and Narcolepsy.
AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccine contains immune enhancing substances which cause a lot of short-term adverse drug reactions (ADRs): compared to Pfizer’s, AZ has twice as many injuries. It’s made with extra enhancing substances1. To mask its ADRs, its study used in the control group not an inert placebo (saline) but a meningitis vaccine that like the AZ vaccine is to cause via the viral RNA the production of Ab against the virus’ spike protein. For this AZ, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will bind to Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors which can cause blood-clotting and microthrombi in the brain, heart, liver, kidney, and thromboembolic disease in the lung; and so, risks death.
Toxic Content of AstraZeneca vaccine (as to enhance its effect) are: i.) Formaldehyde/Formalin – Highly toxic systematic poison and carcinogen; ii.) Beta propiolactone – Toxic & Corrosive chemical and carcinogen. May cause death/permanent injury after very short exposure to small quantities: iii.) Hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide – May cause damage to the liver, cardiovascular system, and central nervous system. May cause reproductive effects and birth defects; iv.) Aluminium hydroxide, aluminium phosphate, and aluminium salts – Neurotoxin. Carries risk for long term brain inflammation/swelling, neurological disorders, autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism. It penetrates the brain where it persists indefinitely; v.) Thimerosal (mercury) – Neurotoxin. Induces cellular damage, reduces oxidation-reduction activity, cellular degeneration, and cell death. Linked to neurological disorders, Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism; vi.) Polysorbate 80 & 20 –is a patented agent to cause infertility in dogs. It trespasses the Blood-Brain Barrier and carries with it aluminium, thimerosal, and viruses; allowing it to enter the brain; vii.) Glutaraldehyde – Toxic chemical used as a disinfectant for heat sensitive medical equipment; viii.) Foetal Bovine Serum – Harvested from bovine (cow) foetuses taken from pregnant cows before slaughter; ix.) Human Diploid Fibroblast Cells – aborted foetal cells. Foreign DNA has the ability to interact with ours; x.) African Green Monkey Kidney Cells – Can carry the SV-40 cancer-causing virus that has already tainted about 30 million Americans. Chimpanzee adenovirus encoding the SARS-CoV-2 spike glycoprotein ChAdOx1-S not less than 2.5 x108 infectious units; xi.) GMO substances; xii.) Acetone – Can cause kidney, liver, and nerve damage; xiii.) E. coli –; xiv.) DNA from porcine (pig) Circovirus type-1; xv.) Human embryonic lung cell cultures and human embryonic kidney (HEK 293) cells from aborted foetuses.

7 The Govt and you failing to disclose the above information, when you had legal obligation to disclose it – whilst issuing or imposing said covid-19 vaccine- to the Scottish public, and you did so in service of the maximisation of ‘vaccination’ uptake in the UK , for the purposes of securing its manufactures’ material gains and those of their accomplices, knowing that People will consent by the promise of a Green Pass and the restoration of what has been taken away by the Corona Act. By this form of duress you have also breached the Declaration of Helsinki and the Nuremberg Convention .
