Malarik read directly from several comments posted by people with the initials M.D. or D.O., which indicates doctor of osteopathic medicine, after their names. There’s no anonymity on the site, so everyone is identified. In the posts, they refer to the vaccines as experimental, unproven or deadly and occasionally write “Fauxi” when talking about Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House chief medical advisor.
Some commenters say that antibodies from contracting Covid are more effective than the messenger RNA, or mRNA, vaccines, which instruct human cells to make specific proteins that produce an immune response to the disease.
While the mRNA vaccines for Covid-19 are currently on the U.S. market under emergency use authorizations from the Food and Drug Administration, clinical trials have proven that they’re highly effective against Covid-19. The FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they are safe, effective and recommended for everyone 12 and older, even for those who have had the virus. President Joe Biden and CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky have described the current situation as a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
