San Francisco, CA—The United SF Freedom Alliance, on behalf of San Francisco city and county employees, with the support of America's Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), filed suit, on January 4, 2022, in the Superior Court for the State of California, County of San Francisco to oppose the city-wide vaccination mandate.
Plaintiffs, employees of the sheriff’s, police, and firefighter departments, along with employees in the municipal transpiration agency, challenge the city’s unlawful vaccine mandate, which is requiring employees to receive a booster shot by February 1, 2022, under the penalty of termination.
The complaint highlights the several obvious problems with the mandate. “Over 99.8% of all those with COVID survive” and those who do survive “obtain robust and durable natural immunity.” Moreover, the “natural immunity … obtained is superior to the COVID vaccine-induced immunity.” The complaint points out, “All ordinary persons including Plaintiffs can directly observe that COVID-19 vaccination does not stop transmission and is harming some individuals.”
This a reality acknowledged by the government. NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, speaking to NPR, on July 28, 2021, stated, “We know now as a fact that [vaccinated people with COVID-19] are capable of transmitting the infection to someone else.” WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, has similarly stated, as the complaint notes, “At the moment I don’t believe we have the evidence of any of the vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from actually getting the infection and therefore being able to pass it on.” The CDC, again as noted in the complaint, states, on its website, “preliminary evidence suggests that fully vaccinated people who do become infected with the Delta variant can spread the virus to others.” Further, the complaint points out “the CDC acknowledges that the COVID vaccines also do not stop transmission of the Omicron variant.”
Not only do the CDC and government officials recognize these and numerous other reasons why the vaccine is ineffective as a vaccine, but numerous scientists and medical doctors buttress these claims and sound alarms. The complaint notes the CDC change to its definition of a vaccine to remove the reference to the traditional purpose of a vaccine, “to produce immunity” to instead “to produce protection” is not an innocuous change. Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche, international vaccinologist, who worked as a senior program officer for vaccine discovery with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, warns, as explained in the complaint, “continued mass vaccination, together with the predominant circulation of more infectious variants (as facilitated by mass vaccination!) will inevitably lead to relatively higher morbidity and mortality rates in vaccinees than in the nonvaccinated.” His concern is one of numerous concerns by experts cited throughout the complaint filed against the city of San Francisco.
AFLDS’s founder, Dr. Simone Gold, a leading voice and supporter of civil liberties actions such as this one, commented about the filing: “The world is starting to take notice that the ill-thought-out decisions and marching orders of politicians threatens the health of millions and threatens our country with a medical tyranny. Leave the medical decisions to the doctors and we will be considerably better off. I’m outraged by the harms needlessly caused. I want justice for the tens of thousands of workers in San Francisco and the many more throughout the country.”
Attorney George Wentz of Davillier Law Group who filed the complaint, along with Attorney John Howard, said, “There are certain circumstances under which public health policy supports mandating vaccines, yet, it is absolutely clear, it is illegal to mandate personal medical treatments. We have brought this case to defend the plaintiffs’ right to decide for themselves what medical treatments they choose.”
Under the U.S. Constitution, it is unlawful for the government to force, or coerce, medical treatments under the threat of termination, a penalty that, for many, threatens to have devastating effects on their careers and lives.
Attorney Wentz added, “These individuals, these plaintiffs, are humans not livestock. We are defending their fundamental human rights.”
