Operation Warp Pace (OWS), a joint operation between U.S. Well being and Human Companies (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’ price which can be meant to be made out there beginning in January 2021.2
However it seems the involvement does not finish there. Slightly than simply guaranteeing a vaccine is produced and made out there for individuals who need it, Moncef Slaoui, the chief scientific adviser for Operation Warp Pace, 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 hostile well being results.”6 In an interview with The New York Instances, 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, a minimum of 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 method might seem like and the way lengthy it’s anticipated to ‘monitor’ the very important indicators and whereabouts of Individuals who obtain a Warp Pace vaccine.”8
One of many paperwork, titled “From the Manufacturing unit to the Frontlines: The Operation Warp Pace Technique for Distributing a COVID-19 Vaccine,” was launched by HHS.9 It additionally mentions the usage of pharmacovigilance surveillance together with Section 4 (post-licensure) medical trials in an effort 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 technique for distributing a COVID-19 vaccine, from allocation and distribution to administration and extra, continues:11
“The important thing goal of pharmacovigilance is to find out every vaccine’s efficiency in real-life eventualities, to review efficacy, and to find any rare and uncommon uncomfortable side effects not recognized in medical trials. OWS may even use pharmacovigilance analytics, which serves as one of many devices for the continual monitoring of pharmacovigilance knowledge.
Strong analytical instruments will likely be used to leverage massive quantities of information and the advantages of utilizing such knowledge throughout the worth chain, together with regulatory obligations. Pharmacovigilance offers well timed details about the security 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 printed in The New England Journal of Medication (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 be backed by Google, the most important 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 will likely be fastidiously assessed utilizing pharmacovigilance surveillance methods.”14
‘Traceability’ a Key Tenet of Operation Warp Pace
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 permitted vaccines had been administered no matter location (public or personal), reminding recipients to return for a second dose and guaranteeing 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 will likely be concerned in “24-month submit trial monitoring for hostile results/further security function.” Pharmacovigilance, often known as drug security, typically refers back to the assortment, evaluation, monitoring and prevention of hostile results from medicines and different therapies.16
Passive reporting programs for hostile occasions, just like the Vaccines Opposed Occasion Reporting System, exist already and are managed by the FDA and CDC.
Nonetheless, a report launched by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg College of Public Well being, Middle for Well being Safety means that passive programs that depend on individuals to ship of their experiences ought to be made into an “lively security surveillance system directed by the CDC that displays all vaccine recipients — maybe by brief message service or different digital mechanisms — with standards based mostly on the World Well being Group World 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 instructed reporters they may 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 crucial position 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 employees and the initiative to separate any regulatory selections from coverage or budgetary selections.
FDA officers are nonetheless allowed to work together with firms 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, Middle for Well being Safety, by the way in which, 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 sometimes a part of such displays, 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 Knowledge
Google and Oracle, a multinational laptop 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 response to People Are Free:24
“If the Warp Pace contracts which were awarded to Google and Oracle are something just like the Warp Pace contracts awarded to most of its taking part vaccine firms, then these contracts grant these firms diminished federal oversight and exemptions from federal legal guidelines and rules designed to guard taxpayer pursuits within the pursuit of the work stipulated within the contract.
It additionally makes them primarily proof against Freedom of Data Act requests. But, in distinction to the unacknowledged Google and Oracle contracts, vaccine firms have publicly disclosed that they obtained OWS contracts, simply not the phrases or particulars of these contracts. This implies that the Google and Oracle contracts are much more secretive.”
In an interview with investigative journalist Whitney Webb (see Mercola hyperlink above underneath “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 the usage of injectable or implantable expertise for the aim of treating nerve situations.
The MIT Expertise evaluate has referred to it as hacking the nervous system. However it additionally lets you monitor the physiology of the human physique from the within.
Slaoui can be invested in an organization referred to as Galvani Bioelectronics, which was cofounded by a Google subsidiary. “So, you’ve got Google being contracted to watch this pharmacovigilance surveillance system that goals to watch the physiology and the human physique for 2 years,” Webb says.
“After which you’ve got the ties to the ProfusA mission,” she provides, “which oddly sufficient is meant to work contained in the human physique for twenty-four months — the precise window they’ve mentioned will likely be used to watch individuals after the primary [vaccine] dose.”
The battle of curiosity is huge, partly 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 probably that any considerations about OWS’s excessive secrecy and the conflicts of curiosity of a lot of its members (significantly Moncef Slaoui and Matt Hepburn) in addition to any considerations about Warp Pace vaccine security, allocation and/or distribution could also be labeled ‘COVID-19 vaccine misinformation’ and faraway from YouTube.”
Is Whole Surveillance Set to Turn into the New Regular?
OWS, moderately than being directed by public well being officers, is closely dominated by navy, expertise firms and U.S. intelligence businesses, likening it to a successor for Whole Data Consciousness (TIA), a program managed by DARPA that sprang up after the 9/11 assaults.
On the time, TIA was in search of to gather Individuals’ medical information, fingerprints and different biometric knowledge, together with DNA and information relating to private funds, journey and media consumption.26 In response to Webb (once more, seek advice from 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 Pace, 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 firms 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 success of an agenda that was tried to be pushed by way of or foisted on the American public after 9/11, referred to as Whole Data Consciousness, which was managed, initially, by DARPA.
It was about utilizing medical knowledge and non-medical knowledge — primarily all knowledge about you — to stop terror assaults earlier than they may occur, and likewise to stop bioterror assaults and even forestall naturally occurring illness outbreaks.
A number of the identical initiatives proposed underneath that authentic program after 9/11 have primarily been resurrected, with up to date expertise, underneath the guise of combating COVID-19.”
A key distinction is that TIA was shortly defunded by Congress after important public backlash, together with considerations that TIA would undermine private privateness. Within the case of OWS, there’s little unfavorable press and media shops are overwhelmingly supportive of the operation as a solution to resolve the COVID-19 disaster.
However what if it is not truly about COVID-19 in any respect, however represents one thing larger, one thing that is been within the works for many years? As People Are Free places it:27
“The overall-surveillance agenda that started with TIA and that has been resurrected by way of Warp Pace predated COVID-19 by a long time.
Its architects and proponents have labored to justify these excessive and invasive surveillance packages by advertising this agenda because the ‘answer’ to no matter Individuals are most afraid of at any given time. It has little or no to do with ‘public well being’ and all the pieces to do with complete management.”
