A November 2020 email thread obtained by the Watchman shows that Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anne Zink admitted, just weeks before the rollout of the experimental Covid jabs, that she did not have enough data to be able to weigh in, one way or another, as to their safety.

On Nov. 15, 2020, Zink received an email from a concerned Alaska who expressed reservation about the fact that mRNA shots are experimental, and that Pfizer had been involved in dangerous experimental vaccination activities in the past.

Specifically mentioned was the fact that Pfizer had engaged in deadly meningitis vaccine experiments in Third World Countries which led to the death and permanent disabilities of many children.

“They are rushing this vaccine to be the ‘first’ to avoid going through necessary trials and tests,” an email from long-time Alaskan Pamela Samash warned Zink. “If I had any say over this situation, I would wait and have my own testing and surveys done before ever introducing this vaccine into the community.”

Samash did not deny that Covid was serious, but suggested Zink recommend other remedies to treat the virus other than the Pfizer jab.

“For the record, I do not believe any of these shots are safe at all,” Samash warned Zink. “Are you aware of the Prep Act protecting the vaccine companies from vaccine injury from Covid shots?”

The email ends on a respectful note, acknowledging that Zink has a “heavy burden.”

“I hope that you understand I’m not attacking you or condemning you,” Samash relayed. “I’m simply disagreeing with you on one issue.”

Samash concluded: “Hey, who knows, maybe I’m the one who’s totally wrong and the magic Pfizer shot will actually save the day, and none will have side effects and we’ll all be hugging and sharing space again by Christmas. Will that be from the shot or herd immunity????”

Later that evening, Zink responded.

“I’m always open to the possibility of being wrong, and at this time we just don’t have the safety data or enough data for me to weigh in one way or the other, but I continue to be optimistic and hopeful about the power of community, creative thinking, in a shared sense of purpose in humanity,” Zink wrote. “I hope we have more data soon.”

Three days later, however, on Nov. 18, Zink published a post on her Facebook page in which she teased the pending rollout of the Covid jabs, stating, “vaccines are coming, but until we get there, let’s all take care of ourselves today.”

Four days after that Facebook post, Zink sent another email to Samash, noting that one of the things she is “grateful for in my time in college and medical school was learning to read primary literature skeptically – so I don’t have to trust a ‘source’ but can look at the primary data.”

Zink then acknowledged that she did have questions about the Covid shot.

“The reality is there will be many more unknowns than knows, but that is the beauty of life, and doing the best we can, taking on step at a time and be humble enough to know we may be wrong,” she wrote, “but never stop asking hard questions and doing the best we can with the goal of the health and wellbeing of Alaskans.”

The next day, Nov. 23, Zink took to social media, once more, to extoll the virtues of the experimental shot.

“Vaccines feel like the sun, soon, slowly, the days will start to get longer, and the vaccine will start to be distributed. At first, we may not notice it, but in spring, we will be moving quickly and by the summer, the world will look different,” Zink posted to her Facebook account.

She said she was “excited to listen to the ACIP (Advisory Committee on immunization Practices) meeting today, and for the team to be working on final plans for vaccine distribution in the state. COVID-19 vaccines look like they may be in Alaska in very limited quantities within weeks.”

Zink echoed the Advisory Committees assertion that no safety steps had been skipped in developing the shot.

Exactly three weeks later, on Dec. 14, 2020, the first Covid shots arrived in Alaska and Zink used her position as chief medical officer to begin aggressively pushing the jabs through radio, television, social media and online platforms. Approximately 70% of the state has now submitted to the jab.

Since the jabs were rolled out, the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Effects Recording System has recorded a total of 2,504 adverse reactions from Alaskans following reception of a Covid shot. This includes 35 Alaskans who have died. Nationwide, there have been nearly 1.5 million reports of adverse reactions following COVID shots, with nearly 32,000 reported deaths.

Reports from Alaska and across national are likely much higher than what appears on VAERS, which captures only 1% of total instances, according to a 2012 study by Harvard. Even so, no other vaccine in the history of VAERS reporting has ever recorded more adverse side effects or deaths than the Covid shots.

“Underreporting’ is one of the main limitations of passive surveillance systems, including VAERS,” the VAERS website notes, adding that the system “receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events.”

To this day, Zink continues to enthusiastically implore Alaskans to get Covid shots and subsequent boosters.
