Retired surgeon Dr Hooman Noorchashm warned “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday that while the coronavirus vaccine should be considered a medical miracle, applying a “one size fits all” approach, as are many experts, could cause more harm to some patients.
Noorchashm, a former professor of surgery at Penn Medicine in Philadelphia, insisted he did not harbor “hesitation about vaccination,” but rather called on the government and citizens to use critical thinking.
“I think we have to have faith and trust that Americans aren’t stupid, right? If you get down to the level of people, if you decently explain to people what this vaccine is, how it works, right? And then you give them information on how to do it. protecting yourself is the solution, ”Noorchashm said.
“I am a very strong supporter of this vaccine. I believe Operation Warp Speed delivered to the United States in less than a year the equivalent of putting a man on Mars, frankly. And this vaccine will probably be the strongest and most effective vaccine we have. never done. ”

“Like any other therapy and medical treatment, this is not a one-size-fits-all solution. And if we try to make it one size, we will almost certainly cause harm. ”
Host Tucker Carlson noted that the US ruling class intends to establish vaccination as a binary choice in which you are either ‘for’ or an ‘anti-vaxxer’ who probably should ‘live somewhere. in the woods”.
Noorchashm agreed, noting as an example that patients who have recently contracted the coronavirus or have another medical condition that can lead to complications might want to better research their options.
“You don’t have to really go to medical school, Tucker, to understand that it’s not a standard approach to vaccinating people who are already infected,” he said. “Now you know the CDC says if you have a known infection you should wait 90 days. I don’t think that’s a long enough time to wait. Frankly, these people are all naturally immune anyway. ”
He noted that the coronavirus has a survival rate of over 99% and that medical experts touting the proverbial binary choice “cause completely preventable damage.”

“I can tell you on the social media platforms I’ve been on, Tucker, the signal is almost deafening. People who have complications and adverse events are people who have been recently or currently or previously infected. I don’t think we can do it. ignore it, ”he said.
“There are some very, very strong anecdotal cases to come and I’m happy to share them with you, but I believe that, you know, we can’t trade safety for efficacy. So in other words, yes, this vaccine will be one of the most effective vaccines we’ve ever made. If you take that efficiency and say, “You know what? We will sacrifice the lives of X number of unsuspecting and trusting Americans, ”I think you are doing a real disservice. ”
