The present COVID-19 vaccines violate all 10 tenets of the Nuremberg Medical Ethics Code

Howard Tenenbaum, DDS, PhD, Paul E. Alexander, MSc, PhD, Parvez Dara, MD, MBA

We sought to examine how many of the Nuremberg Medical ethics codes are being breached by the present COVID-19 vaccine roll out given these codes were devised to constrain medical experimentation which would allow proper protections of the subject/participant/vaccinee. “Fifty years ago in Nuremberg, Germany, 23 physicians and scientists stood trial for war crimes committed before and during the Second World War. The medical trial, and its more famous predecessor, the international military tribunal, have left us with defining statements of ethical principle”.

It is imperative that the reader and all involved with these COVID-19 vaccines understand, that under the terms of the Nuremberg Code, individuals or anyone involved in the distribution of these yet to be approved, and therefore experimental, vaccines, can be accused of crimes against humanity, if they administer an experimental medical procedure or device to any subject, without the subject’s fully informed consent. “I was only following orders.” was not an acceptable defense in 1947. We will treat informed consent throughout this document as it is a very critical aspect of administration of a vaccine or any drug etc., and we feel it has been breached each time thus far, when these vaccines have been, and continue to be administered.

We became very troubled by our point-by-point analysis of the Nuremberg code and wish to present it for the reader. For this analysis, the term ‘vaccine’ refers to the COVID-19 vaccine, specifically the mRNA or DNA vaccines. ‘Vaccinee’ refers to the individual in receipt of the vaccine. It is important that we set the table for this examination. Why are we focused on this? We are focused on this because the vaccines are permitted by the government under emergency use authorization only (EUA) status and to reiterate are still, therefore, experimental in nature.

These vaccines have been granted provisional approval, subject to the manufacturers supplying ongoing results and data as part of the ongoing experimentation. Again, there has been no full regulatory approval with the proper assessment of the benefits and harms of these vaccines. As it stands, even for the EUA, proper toxicology studies or animal trials were not performed. Moreover, the initial human trials were performed on completely healthy people under 50 who had zero underlying conditions (e.g. they could even be overweight) and yet as will be mentioned below, the vaccinations are now being recommended to people who have conditions that were not included in the study and this includes pregnancy. Children were also excluded from the trials.

The median follow-up for the vaccinations was approximately only two months. This means we did not take the time to test this novel vaccine technology. In relation to the novelty of the vaccine approach currently being used we point out that either the mRNA-lipid nanoparticle, or DNA adenoviral vector platforms perform in a manner heretofore never tried in human subjects and in such a massive vaccination campaign, no less. One of the most distinguishing features of these vaccines is that they program our own cells to manufacture (translate the genetic code) into a protein (spike protein) against which immunity develops. Given that the spike protein is an important part of the SARS CoV-2 virus, this was thought to be the most appropriate strategy. As creative as this approach is, we point out that at this time there are no data available that can elucidate what, if any, longer-term side effects or adverse events might be anticipated following vaccination. As noted above, we only followed these vaccines for a few months when, in order to confirm long-term safety, we need 10 to 12 to 15 years on average to bring any vaccine to market. One of the most critical aspects of vaccine development was ignored in that ‘time’ component where the vaccine and its effects (presence of effectiveness and/or harms) is followed closely under surveillance. Importantly, the placebo group in the original trials has now been allowed to be vaccinated, so the original control group is diminishing rapidly to the point where it will be non-existent. This alone has drastically reduced the impact of the randomized controlled trials that are still underway.

The ten points of the code were given in the section of the judges’ verdict entitled “Permissible Medical Experiments”.

1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is essential.

Forcing, bribing, and coercing people to accept an experimental drug (vaccine) without providing any information regarding sequelae of this treatment contravenes this regulation. Coercion abounds and is coming both directly and indirectly by our governments, and globally. Directly by way of PSAs virtually shaming people who have not been vaccinated to get vaccinated...
