Vaccine Failure

Moore, Art. “Fauci Stumped When Asked Why COVID-Infected Americans Need Vaccine.” WND, September 10, 2021.

Gupta, pointing to a recent study in Israel showing natural immunity to be 27 times more effective than the Pfizer vaccine, said he gets calls all the time from people who say they already have had COVID and, therefore, are protected. “Should they also get the vaccine?” he asked Fauci. “How do you make the case to them?”

“You know, that’s a really good point, Sanjay. I don’t have a really firm answer to you on that,” Fauci replied. “That’s something that we’re going to have to discuss, regarding the durability of the response,” he added.

To Boost or Not to Boost?

 STAT. “U.S. Officials’ Decision on Covid-19 Booster Shots Baffles — and Upsets — Some Scientists,” August 18, 2021.

 Many flat-out challenged the need for booster doses at this time. Others questioned the morality of administering third shots to Americans when most people on the planet haven’t received one. And some worried that a decision had been made before the Food and Drug Administration had ruled on the need for a booster or a key vaccine advisory committee had evaluated the data — typically the way vaccine policy is set.

The White House. “Press Briefing by White House COVID-19 Response Team and Public Health Officials,” August 24, 2021.

 “We are acting aggressively to stay ahead of the virus and are planning for booster shots starting the week of September 20th, pending FDA and ACIP approval. We expect the rule will be simple: Get your booster shot eight months after you’ve got your second shot.”

 The White House. “Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jen Psaki, August 27, 2021,” August 27, 2021.

 Q    One more.  President Biden told reporters in the Oval Office during his meeting with the Prime Minister that he talked to Dr. Fauci today about the prospect of giving booster shots after five months instead of eight.  Can you explain why he’s looking at that and what information he has now that justifies the possibility of going that direction?

MS. PSAKI:  Well, let me be very clear: The President would rely on any guidance by the CDC and the FDA and his health and medical experts.  That guidance continues to be eight months.  That has not changed.  So I want to be very clear on that.

If they were to change their guidance, based on data, for any particular group, he would, of course, abide by that.  But for people watching at home, for you all who are reporting out this, nothing has changed about the eight-month timeline as it relates to the boosters.

Q    But why did they go — why is this conversation even happening?  What sort of triggered going from eight to five?

MS. PSAKI:  Well, I would say I can’t — I obviously wasn’t in — sitting in the meeting having the discussion with them on this.  But Israel has taken the step of doing six-month boosters, and it’s — the President referenced advice he’d been given from the Prime Minister.  Obviously, we make our own assessments based on our health and medical experts here in the United States, and nothing has changed on that front.

So I think it was more likely a reference to that.  And obviously, we have ongoing discussions with our health and medical experts about what they look at.

 The White House. “Remarks by President Biden on Fighting the COVID-19 Pandemic,” September 10, 2021.

Of course, the decision of which booster shots to give, when to start them, and who will give them, will be left completely to the scientists at the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control.

But while we wait, we’ve done our part.  We’ve bought enough boosters — enough booster shots — and the distribution system is ready to administer them.

As soon as they are authorized, those eligible will be able to get a booster right away in tens of thousands of site across the — sites across the country for most Americans, at your nearby drug store, and for free. 

 The White House. “Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jen Psaki, September 15, 2021,” September 15, 2021.

 Q    Okay.  And then on a different subject — on booster shots: There was FDA staff that said today that it’s not clear at this point whether booster shots are useful for the general public.  You have a plan to start giving those out on September 20th.  Is that date still on?  And do you need to wait more in order to get more of a scientific consensus behind that policy? 

PSAKI… Right now, what we’re looking at is that today the FDA provided more data that will be analyzed through independent and rigorous scientific process.  A formal meeting is also happening of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee.  That will take place on Friday. And next week, the ACIP is planning to meet.  And, based on their recommendation, we’re prepared to operationalize.  So those are the steps that will be occurring. Nothing has changed, as it relates to the eight top doctors who put out that statement almost a month ago.  There was always going to be a process; that process is proceeding.

The White House. “Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jen Psaki, September 16, 2021,” September 16, 2021. (If you read no other briefing, read this one!)

 Q    And then one other on booster shots.  Obviously, next week is the timeline that the administration laid out.  There seems — you’ve addressed there seems to be some considerable disagreement within the public health agencies about how to move forward.  Former scientists from the FDA who left signed on to a study about this, saying that the boosters are not needed.  Do you still plan to have the boosters rolled out next week?  And what do you tell the American people about some of this disagreement inside the public health agencies?…

 Q    Jen, thank you.  A follow-up on the FDA: You say that there was a large consensus of doctors and advisors who feel like boosters are warranted and safe and effective, but then, during all this, you had two top senior officials at the FDA resign during the booster conversation — that being the Director of Office of Vaccines Research, and Dr. Philip Krause, Deputy Director of the Office — concerned about the vaccine. So what’s your reaction to that in light of boosters next week?  And what does that say to the American people to have those two high-level people step down over this conversation? …

 Q    Thank you so much, Jen.  One question — one follow-up question on booster shots.  I’m wondering if you could just say whether or not the President is at all even concerned about whether the administration endorsing booster shots before the FDA fully approved them just looks like they’re trying to influence the FDA and mix science with politics.  I understand your —

MS. PSAKI:  But, Yamiche, it was —

Q    — point.  I’m just wondering —

MS. PSAKI:  — the FDA acting head who endorsed boosters.

Q    The point is, though, that the FDA itself and scientists are still weighing whether or not they want to make the recommendation fully.  So the question is, does this administration even have any concerns that coming out and recommending booster shots before they’re fully approved and fully recommended by the FDA, that that might be seen as unduly influencing?

MS. PSAKI:  No.

The White House. “Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jen Psaki, September 20, 2021,” September 21, 2021.

 Q    Sixteen out of eighteen FDA advisors say there is not the science.  The President talks about “following the science.”  Is this a case of him getting ahead on the science?

Ciolino, Nick. Epoch Times. “White House, HHS Defend Announcing Booster Shot Plan Ahead of Approval,” September 17, 2021.

The FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) met Friday morning to discuss whether booster doses will be recommended. It voted 16–3 against providing the booster for most people, but recommended it for those over 65 years old and those at high risk….The decision to make the announcement in August has raised questions of whether the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services put undue pressure on the regulatory agencies to approve boosters by making the potential need for a third dose public.

Jill Hines

Directory of Advocacy
A former banker turned homeschool mom, Jill Hines began researching alternatives to conventional medicine in 2010 and what she discovered changed the trajectory of her life. She corrected a worrisome health issue, and embraced a natural approach to wellness. Advocating for informed consent and parental rights became a full-time mission when she joined the board of the Georgia Coalition for Vaccine Choice and later became the co-director of Health Freedom Louisiana. Due to her advocacy efforts during the COVID crisis, Jill was one of 25 Louisianans selected by Central City News as “a hero of the constitutional crisis.” She was also presented the Impact Award for Outstanding Public Service from the government watchdog organization Citizens for a New Louisiana. Jill now represents hundreds of millions of Americans who experienced censorship due to the Biden administration's efforts to suppress disfavored speech as a plaintiff in the landmark lawsuit Missouri v. Biden. Jill holds a marketing degree from Louisiana Tech University and now passionately “sells” health freedom full-time. Serving as Stand for Health Freedom’s advocacy director provides an incredible opportunity to advance the growing movement to preserve the sacred right to refuse unwanted medical interventions for ourselves and our children without fear of retribution.
“We have lived through a terrifying societal, psychological, and medical experiment which afforded us a knowledge that our forefathers tried to impart and we can no longer ignore: Our freedom is tenuous. For our children’s sake, the time is now to take a stand for health freedom.”

Chrissy Scott

Executive Assistant and Social Media Manager

A labor and delivery nurse with a lifelong passion for maternal and fetal health, Chrissy Scott left her job of 19 years after learning the truth about the harms caused by the medical system. In 2009, she was mandated by her employer to receive the H1N1 vaccine during her first trimester of pregnancy with her second child. She was assured that the vaccine was “safe and effective” for pregnant women, but her son was born with a kidney defect that could have been fatal. She didn’t connect the dots to vaccine injury until several years later when the declining health of her oldest son drove her to seek answers outside of allopathic medicine.

This personal journey ignited in her a new passion for truth and transparency in health care. As SHF’s Executive Assistant, Chrissy facilitates communication and local advocacy initiatives alongside Leah Wilson for their home state of Indiana. She also manages and creates graphics for SHF’s social media accounts and the website’s swag shop.

Chrissy earned her nursing degree from Anderson University and served her entire career at her local hospital. While she’s no longer a floor nurse, her five very active boys frequently test her nursing skills! She homeschools her children and has been co-owner of a successful home décor sign business with her sister.

“Parents, being the experts on their own children, are best suited to make decisions for the well-being of their family. To do this properly, they must be given full and accurate information and be free from force or coercion.”

Ellen is most energized by working on projects that transform lives. A truth seeker as well as a journalist, she’s disturbed by the lack of accuracy in today’s media and determined to help share fact rather than fiction. And having found greater healing with alternative approaches, she’s also passionate about preserving our freedom to make informed health choices.

She also creates handcrafted jewelry in wire, chain maille, and fused glass.

“Despite what some would have us believe, the fact remains that this nation was founded on biblical principles by people who wanted freedom to worship God and live their lives without government involvement. It’s never been more critical to fight for those rights.”


Executive Director and Co-founder

An attorney with a background in complex litigation and advocacy, Leah Wilson is passionate about children’s health and has researched and worked on child welfare issues for more than a decade.

The overmedication of children in foster care as a form of behavior management is what compelled Leah to become an advocate and foster parent. During her time as a court-appointed special advocate for abused and neglected children, Leah witnessed the rampant use of psychiatric drugs among foster kids. She also discovered that, in addition to many extensive requirements, the state had a policy that all foster children and foster families be fully vaccinated, without exception. Through her involvement in law, health and the foster care system, it became abundantly clear to Leah that the single most important issue affecting child welfare in the United States is the practice of one-size-fits-all medicine via medical mandates. This motivated Leah to expand her advocacy beyond foster care to all children nationwide and to start Stand for Health Freedom (SHF) in 2019.

A graduate of the Saint Louis University School of Law, Leah holds dual bachelor degrees in political science and Spanish from Indiana University. In addition to her advocacy work with SHF, Leah is the owner and former operations director of MaxLiving Indy, one of the largest natural health centers in the Midwest. She is also an educator on holistic health as well as a sought-after speaker on issues ranging from religious rights to greening your home.

“Parental rights and religious freedom are God-given natural rights that cannot arbitrarily be taken away by government authorities. Parents are the single most important factor in a child’s success; I stand in full support of this sacred relationship.”

“I truly believe that education will be our greatest shield against accelerating the erosion of civil liberties, including the right to bodily sovereignty, as well as the greatest catalyst for positive change on this planet moving forward.”

Bailey Kuykendoll

Associate Director

Designer and visual marketer Bailey Kuykendoll began advocating for health and religious freedom and parental rights in 2014 after learning she was pregnant. A self-described skeptic, she’s not afraid to ask questions and do copious amounts of research to reach her own conclusions.

She’s also not afraid of hard work. As SHF’s Associate Director, Bailey truly keeps the organizational boat afloat. Working closely with our State Directors in each state, she ensures that SHF has calls-to-action for health-freedom bills and petitions on our website and across social media, spreading the word to encourage people to contact their legislators. She builds campaigns, graphics, website pages, and relationships.

Bailey earned a design degree from Harrington Institute of Design in 2008. She then served as a production assistant on several shows for HGTV, followed by working behind the scenes on the X Factor, small indie films, music videos, and documentaries. Bailey joined Health Freedom Florida after moving to the East Coast, becoming co-president of the grassroots organization in 2019. While at Health Freedom Florida, she successfully filed a state bill designed to stop discrimination based on your health status. She joined SHF in the fall of 2020.

“God placed a calling on my heart back in 2008 to be a part of something bigger for Him. Twelve years later, the opportunity came knocking to help others lean into their natural-born rights and take a stand for themselves and their families. I knew this is where I was called to be, and I have never looked back.”

Valerie Borek


Valerie Borek is a passionate advocate for health rights and family privacy. A mother of two with degrees in law and biochemistry, she is perfectly positioned to lead SHF advocates through complex health-rights policy. Her work is guided by a love for American values, uncovering truth, and a passion for empowering others. Valerie has served as SHF’s policy analyst since 2021.

Valerie’s understanding of the value of freedom to make one’s own health care choices is not just academic. Health freedom has kept her boys alive and thriving. Her choice to have home births jump-started her advocacy for health privacy. Her eldest son survived a rare and deadly cancer because her family was able to navigate medical care while holding onto values that were sometimes at odds with recommendations.

Before joining SHF, Valerie specialized in health and parenting rights at her boutique law firm, especially surrounding birth and vaccine rights. She advocated for informed consent in health care and transparent food labeling in her state. She helped found the Birth Rights Bar Association and was honored to present their argument to the Delaware Supreme Court that midwifery is not the practice of medicine, in support of a trailblazing midwife.

“Health is the foundation of how we show up in this world to love, serve, and create. Americans are blessed to live in a country that gets stronger the more we protect fundamental rights, like informed consent and privacy, so individuals and families can thrive.”

Mary Katherine LaCroix


Mary Katherine LaCroix became involved with SHF as a volunteer in 2019 when the religious exemption for childhood vaccines was at risk in her home state of New Jersey. She believes strongly that parents have the responsibility for their children’s health, education, and faith formation and that only they have the right to make medical decisions and manage their care.

She has worked in fundraising for more than 25 years at various educational, cultural, human services, and political organizations. A graduate of the University of Scranton, she holds a degree in History and English Literature.

Mary Katherine is thrilled to have this opportunity to work with and help grow SHF, believing that together we can achieve even greater impact in protecting our rights and caring for our loved ones. She enjoys spending time with her husband, two children and large extended family, as well as volunteering to support the special needs community.

“Parents are taught that they must trust the experts. That’s what we did, until we learned that the experts can be wrong and don’t always know what is best for your child. Parents should instead feel empowered by their natural, God-given ability to advocate and care for their children. SHF is here to give them the tools to do just that.”
