- The Washington Times - Thursday, February 2, 2023

On the heels of fielding 50 reports of eye infections from 11 different states over the span of eight or nine months — specifically, since May of 2022 — the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention decided enough is enough: The agency is now warning Americans to stop buying and using EzriCare Artificial Tears.

That’s interesting.

Now where’s the warning to stop taking the COVID-tied shots?

“As of January 26, 2023,” the CDC writes on its website, “there have been 1,060 preliminary reports in VAERS among people younger than age 18 years under review for potential cases of myocarditis and pericarditis.”

There are more. Many more.

Meanwhile, CDC’s response to these Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System complaints is this: Eh. So what. Get the shot — and all the boosters, too.

“COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective and severe reactions after vaccination are rare,” the CDC writes on its website.

“CDC recommends everyone ages 6 months and older get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect against COVID-19 and its potentially severe complications,” the CDC writes on its website.

And even while acknowledging other adverse health effects from the various COVID-tied shots — such as “ischemic stroke in people ages 65 and older who received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent” — the CDC simultaneously says this, in darkened bolded type on its website: “No change is recommended in COVID-19 vaccination practice.”

Nothing to see here.

That healthy athlete dropping suddenly amid stride on the field? Don’t worry about it. That young college man who suddenly developed a heart issue, coincidentally on the heels of receiving his mandated COVID shot? Fuhgettaboutit.

“The benefits of COVID-19 vaccination continue to outweigh any potential risks,” the CDC writes on its website.

Those freaking eyedrops, though.

Now that’s something to watch — no pun intended.

“The CDC says lab and epidemiological evidence have tied the use of EzriCare Artificial Tears to a multi-state cluster of Pseudomonas aeruginos patients, but the investigation is ongoing and there is not yet a definite link,” The Hill wrote.

And yet the CDC, in a wave of caution and concern, has issued a warning and advisement to stop using the product.

“CDC recommends that clinicians and patients immediately discontinue the use of EzriCare Artificial Tears until the epidemiological investigation and laboratory analyses are complete,” the agency wrote in a late January release, as reported by The Hill.

The CDC’s on the watch. They’re doing an investigation. They’re conducting lab analyses. They’re sending their epidemiological experts to test, test, test and research, research, research. And look here, even more interesting — out of an abundance of government compassion for the people, the company, EzriCare, has also sent ‘round the warning.

“To the greatest extent possible,” the company said in a statement, “we have been contacting customers to advise them against continued use of the product.”

Big Pharma, are you paying attention?

“We [have] reached out to both CDC and FDA and indicated our willingness to cooperate with any requests they may have of us,” the company wrote.

That’s called accountability. This is called being accountable for one’s actions.

Now compare that to the COVID shots — to the response of the private pharmaceutical companies and their political partners and their bureaucratic bullies in the taxpayer-funded medical agencies, and to the big snore that accompanied nearly all complaints. Pfizer, for crying out loud, wanted to keep secret its vaccine development data for dozens of years — and would have, too, if a court hadn’t intervened and said no. 

Maybe Ezri ticked off the wrong people.

Maybe one of the CDC’s own suffered an eye infection and that’s what led to the agency’s DEFCON 1 response.

But as far as layman’s looks go, the CDC once again presents as political. The data on the dangers of the COVID shots is there for all to see. If only America’s own medical watchdogs would take notice and report truthfully, transparently. 

If the COVID shots were Ezri eyedrops, they would have been taken off the market within the first year.
