Does the Covid-19 Injection Qualify as a Vaccine?

Dr. Cole Series, Part 3

On March 18, 2021, Dr. Ryan Cole, M.D., spoke on issues surrounding Covid-19 at the Idaho State Capitol. The following transcript is taken from his presentation, and this installment serves a Part 3 of a 5-part series. Dr. Cole is a Board Certified, Mayo Clinic trained pathologist who has been in practice for 18 years. He is the CEO and Medical Director of Cole Diagnostics in Boise, Idaho and is unaffiliated with any political party or organization.

There are three things in the history of humanity that have saved more lives than anything.

  1. Public Health.  Sanitation and clean water have probably saved the most lives on the planet.
  2. Antibiotics.
  3. Vaccines.

I’m not anti-vaccine. I’m very pro approved, safety-proven vaccines.  I got criticized recently – that’s fine. I am pro safe-vaccine.

What about vaccines in children? Let’s go to the CDC definition. A vaccine is, “A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting that person from that disease.”

The experimental trial end-points from Moderna, Pfizer, J&J, and AstraZeneka have been “to decrease severity of the disease and decrease hospitalization.”

Sterilizing and neutralizing immunity have not been proven, and prevention of transmitting the virus has not been proven.

So you can answer the question. If you look at the definition from the CDC of what a vaccine is, does “decreasing symptoms” and “not providing sterilizing,” and “not providing a neutralizing immunity” qualify?

Anyone who receives these shots, it is your body, and your choice. In life, everything is a risk-benefit analysis. I’m not saying “get it,” or “don’t get it,” I just want people to be informed.  If you’re going to get it, it’s your choice, but you should be fully informed.

Anyone receiving the current emergency investigational vaccines – that are emergency authorized – these are not approved nor licensed – you are enrolled for two years as an experimental subject in a large, phase-3 trial. If injury or death occurs, you have – by law – no legal recourse against these companies.

The fastest we’ve ever gotten a vaccine to the market is the mumps vaccine, and it took four years to get that to the market. We’ve done this new ‘vaccine’ in nine months.

A vaccine trial, for safety data purposes and long-term side effects, takes 2-6 years for final approval. This one is shooting for two years. 

None are currently authorized for children. Moderna and J&J are for age 18 and above. Pfizer is 16.


We’ve never used mRNA for a vaccine in a large population ever in the history of humankind. With mRNA, we take the virus, we cut out the little piece of RNA sequence that codes for the spike protein, put it in a lipid shell, put it in a vial at very, very, very, very cold temperatures, put it in a syringe, inoculate to your arm, and these sequences are supposed to go into your cell, take over your cell machinery to replicate and make a spike protein that expresses itself on the surface of your cell, so that you are now becoming that antigen factory yourself, and you’re making a part of the virus in your cell. It puts it on the surface of your cell, and then your body is supposed to make an antibody against that foreign protein – that spike protein of Covid-19.  That’s how Pfizer and Moderna work.

J&J is different. What they do is take a common cold virus, and they knock out all the genes that would cause the cold out of that virus shell, and they splice in a piece of DNA that codes for the spike protein of Sars-CoV-2. They inject that – it goes into your cell, your cell gulps it in, that DNA unfolds, and it’s transcribed into mRNA, and that make the spike protein and puts it on the surface of your cell, and then your body says, “Okay, now I’m going to make an antigen that’s for that spike protein that’s for that foreign virus.”  You’re not getting the whole virus, it’s making a part of the virus.

To some people this matters, so I want to make sure it’s a point of clarity. J&J is grown on retinal aborted fetal cells from a cell line in the 1980’s. Per the FDA factsheet that is in the J&J application and in the physician handouts, the J&J shot may contain 0.15 micrograms of human proteins and three nanograms of human DNA.
