Health-related risk management specialist Retsef Levi has called for the immediate suspension of all COVID-19 messenger RNA vaccinations.
After doing a risk assessment of the vaccinations, Levi, a professor at the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, announced his proposal and supporting data in a video broadcast to Twitter on Sunday.
As of Monday afternoon, more than 1.1 million people had viewed the video.
“I’m filming this video to share my strong conviction that at this point in time, all COVID mRNA vaccination program[s] should stop immediately,” Levi said.
He said he believes the vaccines have “completely failed” to live up to the promises of efficacy given by health officials and vaccine manufacturers.
In addition, Levi said that there is “mounting and indisputable evidence” that vaccinations cause “unprecedented harm,” including the deaths of children.

Several investigations have demonstrated that immunizations have a larger risk of problems than was previously anticipated, albeit not to the extent Levi suggested.
Shortly after the vaccines were introduced to the public, it was discovered that the Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca shots caused vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia, a blood-clotting disorder, in approximately 1 in 26,000 to 1 in 127,000 people, the majority of whom were young women.
Myocarditis, an uncommon but dangerous adverse effect of the Moderna and Pfizer mRNA vaccines, is the source of the vast majority of public concern over the vaccinations. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, young adult and adolescent males experience these adverse effects most frequently.
Some analysts feel that health authorities have minimized the severity of these negative effects.
“We think the vaccines are an important tool for preventing severe illness and death among vulnerable people … But we have been concerned that our federal officials recklessly continue to push for multiple Covid shots for everyone five years old and up, despite the growing evidence that these vaccines may not be appropriate for all,” Drs. Vinay Prasad and John Mandrola wrote in a Wednesday article for The Free Press, an outlet founded by journalist Bari Weiss.
“We are also concerned about the way side effects of the vaccine, particularly among young men, have been downplayed,” they wrote.
In a paper published on November 7th, the American College of Cardiology assessed the myocarditis complication risk for the Moderna vaccination to be 35.6% per million doses and 12.6% per million doses for the Pfizer vaccine. In 2018, before the introduction of vaccinations, there were around 2 instances of myocarditis per million persons under 40 and 2.2 per million people over 40, according to the research.
According to Levi, vaccination adverse effects are likely more prevalent than current research indicates. According to him, this is because myocarditis cases are grossly underreported and unreported.
“Since myocarditis is known to be hard to diagnose … I was very concerned that it will not be detected by the existing vaccine safety surveillance systems,” he explained in the video.
After analyzing data from Israel’s emergency medical services, Levi discovered “very concerning signals,” as he put it.
Comparing data from 2019 to the first half of 2021, Levi and his colleagues discovered a 25 percent rise in cardiac arrest incidents among those aged 16 to 39.
He said that he discovered a link between this rise with the same people receiving doses of Pfizer vaccine.
Levi’s research discovered no association between the rise in cardiac events and COVID-19 infections within the same time frame.
“While this is not proof of [a] casual relationship, it left us very concerned, especially given the known suspect clinical mechanism,” Levi said in the video.
Despite asking for a study into the “causal mechanisms” underlying the spike in fatalities, he stated that, “to the best of my knowledge,” none had been done.
“I think there is no other ethical or scientific choice but to pull out of the market these medical products and stop all the mRNA vaccination programs,” Levi said.
“This is clearly the most failing medical product in the history of medical products, both in terms of efficacy and safety,” he concluded.
