DNA Contamination Found in mRNA COVID Vaccines *13 updates*

DNA contamination of mRNA, Pfizer/Biontech, Side Effects, Vaccine

Cancer genomics expert Dr. Phillip Buckhaults testifies to the South Carolina Senate on DNA contamination found in mRNA COVID vaccines..

“There’s probably about 200 billion pieces of this plasmid DNA in each dose of the vaccine… this is a bad idea.”

UPDATE 1 – 24th September 2023: Japanese Professor Murakami of Tokyo University expresses concerns over the alarming discovery of Simian Virus 40 (SV40) promoters, associated with human cancer development, in Pfizer vials:



SV40 Study: Emergent Human Pathogen Simian Virus 40 and Its Role in Cancer

The polyomavirus simian virus 40 (SV40) is a known oncogenic DNA virus which induces primary brain and bone cancers, malignant mesothelioma, and lymphomas in laboratory animals.



UPDATE 2 – 27th September 2023: Scientists ‘shocked’ and ‘alarmed’ at what’s in the mRNA shots

“Early in 2023, genomics scientist Kevin McKernan made an accidental discovery. While running an experiment in his Boston lab, McKernan used some vials of mRNA Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccines as controls. He was ‘shocked’ to find that they were allegedly contaminated with tiny fragments of plasmid DNA.”

Over 13 billion Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered so far, to over 70% of the world’s population.

UPDATE 3 – 21st October 2023: Health Canada confirms the presence of SV40 in Pfizer vaccine



UPDATE 4 – 2007 Study –  Simian virus 40 may be CONTAGIOUS in humans

“Simian virus 40 (SV40) is a monkey virus that was administered to human populations by contaminated vaccines which were produced in SV40 naturally infected monkey cells.

Recent molecular biology and epidemiological studies suggest that SV40 may be contagiously transmitted in humans by horizontal infection, independently from the earlier administration of SV40-contaminated vaccines.

SV40 footprints in humans have been found associated at high prevalence with specific tumor types such as brain and bone tumors, mesotheliomas and lymphomas and with kidney diseases, and at lower prevalence in blood samples from healthy donors.”

Update 6 – 22nd October 2023: DNA contamination could lead to lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers



Update 7 – 23rd October 2023 – AP factchecks claims of SV40 in vaccines

AP’S ASSESSMENT: “False. Public health officials and the lead researcher of a study cited in many of the social media posts say there’s no monkey virus DNA in the inoculations approved by government regulators. Some COVID-19 vaccines utilize DNA molecules derived from Simian Virus 40, but that’s not the same as the virus itself and the molecules aren’t cancer-causing.” (Our emphasis)


Quite apart from the ludicrous semantics of this statement, our question is this: when did AP become aware that “Some COVID-19 vaccines utilize DNA molecules derived from Simian Virus 40, and did they report it at the time?



Update 8 – 25th October 2023 – Philip J. Buckhault: “I guarantee you there has been genome modification”



Update 9 – 25th October 2023 – 27 more vials tested



Update 10 – 25th October 2023
