“All About mRNA So Called Vaccines”

Reviewing the claims made by Dr. Steven Hotze on COVID-19 vaccines

AFP – “All about mRNA So Called Vaccines,” says the title of a 17-minute video published on March 15, 2021 featuring Steven Hotze, a doctor and activist from Texas, who heads the Hotze Health and Wellness Center.

It has been viewed more than 60,000 times on Rumble.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a December 2, 2020 warning letter sent to Hotze about unapproved products that claim to offer protection against COVID-19 and promoted on his social media accounts and websites.

“We request that you take immediate action to cease the sale of such unapproved and unauthorized products for the mitigation, prevention, treatment, diagnosis, or cure of COVID-19,” it said.

Below, AFP Fact Check examines some of the claims Hotze makes in the video:

Hotze claims that an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine is “not a vaccine at all. It is a synthetic messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) experimental gene therapy, and it works much differently than historic vaccines.”

The mRNA shots against COVID-19 are the first to use the cutting-edge messenger ribonucleic acid technology, which differs from that of other vaccines.

However, arguing that mRNA vaccines are not vaccines is “false” because “the protein produced is exactly the same as many/most vaccines,” Jeffrey Cirillo, Regents’ professor of immunology at the Texas A&M College of Medicine, told AFP in an email.

He explained that more protein is made by introducing mRNA and “that is why these mRNA vaccines work so well.”

Grant McFadden, director of the Biodesign Center for Immunotherapy, Vaccines, and Virotherapy of Arizona State University, agreed that mRNA vaccines end up achieving the same goal as traditional vaccines.

He disputed that the vaccines are gene therapy because “they do not change the genetic DNA of the host cells, and cannot alter the genes of the recipient’s cells.”

Claim 2: COVID-19 vaccines do not provide immunity

Hotze also claims in the video that the vaccines are ineffective because they do “not provide the individuals who receive the vaccine with immunity to COVID-19, nor does it prevent the transmission of this disease.”

Cynthia Leifer, associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Cornell University, disagreed and said that these vaccines do prevent the disease …
