A U.S. Army combat physician recently discussed how military medics were told to not enter adverse medical reactions to COVID-19 vaccines in official medical databases.
Dr. Peter Chambers is a lieutenant colonel in the Army and a Special Forces Green Beret. He has 39 years of military experience and is a Purple Heart recipient. His comments came Wednesday at an online conference of the Truth For Health Foundation where its global reporting system for COVID vaccine injuries was announced.
Chambers received the Moderna vaccine shortly after it became available in January 2021, before he was aware of the possible side effects. Soon thereafter he developed “brain fog” and loss of eyesight. After also suffering vertigo and nausea that led him to crash a truck while on night patrol, he underwent an MRI that led to a diagnosis of demyelination. That disease affects nerve tissue.
He now describes himself as an advocate for those injured by the vaccine.
At the video conference, Chambers shared his recent experience as a task force surgeon with Operation Lone Star, a border security mission at the country’s southern border with Mexico.
He said that he saw “multiple soldiers” with symptoms similar to his after being vaccinated. He saw six soldiers who were admitted to the ICU and one who was ordered to take a second shot although he suffered micro-clotting immediately after his first.
Chambers said he recorded the details of the service members’ vaccine responses and entered them into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS). He then described how surgeons at military hospitals were being told not to enter case statistics into VAERS.
He said that because the vaccines were classified as experimental, personnel were told not to enter vaccine injuries into the Army’s own “defense, medical, and epidemiological database.”
Chambers described how he is normally required to complete informed consent forms to comply with Army regulations for soldiers receiving vaccinations. He said that he knew he had to “reinforce or confirm” with soldiers whether they needed the shot in light of the growing knowledge of the possible dangers involved.
He said that out of 3,000 soldiers he provided the informed consent briefing, only six chose to take the vaccination shots. As a result, he said a senior medical officer told him to pack up and “leave the border.”
Chambers was the first person to use the newly announced Citizens Vaccine Injury Reporting System. He said that doctors “can’t just quit.”
