Susan Skyvington, Mullumbimby

The Echo detailed all ingredients in COVID-19 vaccines in the 21 July issue (p 20) on online (www.echo.net.au), yet the misinformation virus continues to spread.

A car seen parked around Mullum has a large sticker claiming vaccines contain aluminium, formaldehyde, latex, aborted foetal cells, mercury, and Polysorbate 80 & 20.

The first five things are just not in covid vaccines. Preservative Thimerasol, containing mercury, was removed from all vaccines (except for Q Fever) in Australia in 2000(https://bit.ly/3imhJBk).

AstraZeneca contains Polysorbate 80. This is in many food products, cosmetics, shampoos and drugs. It is a surfactant or emulsifier, to stop the ingredients from separating. Polysorbate 80 can be a skin irritant for some sensitive people. It is possibly the cause of the headaches or rashes some get after vaccines.

The other ingredients are salt, sugar, lipids, amino acids and ethanol (0.005 per cent compared to five per cent in beer). Science, not emotive misinformed opinion, must prevail.

Why Nuclear Will Bomb

Unless you’ve been blissfully slumbering in a very welcome coma, you’d be aware that Scott Morrison abruptly cancelled the terribly important contract we had with France, to build new submarines, in order to get fancy nuclear sink-boats from the US instead (in decades time and at incalculable cost, much like the previous contract).
