MIT professor Retsef Levi, who serves as co-director of Leaders for Global Operations Program, is widely regarded as one of the leading experts in risk management in the health field.
In a newly released video, Levi is calling for the immediate suspension of all COVID-19 messenger RNA vaccines. His recommendation is based on supporting evidence that shows vaccines have “completely failed” and cause an “unprecedented level of harm.”
The video has already received over 1 million views at the time of this report. WATCH:
The evidence is mounting and indisputable that MRNA vaccines cause serious harm including death, especially among young people. We have to stop giving them immediately! pic.twitter.com/chFLvqlDqu

“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.
Levi said he believes the vaccines have “completely failed” in terms of their efficacy. He also noted there is “mounting and indisputable” evidence that vaccines cause an “unprecedented level of harm.”
Levi mentioned that even death has occurred as a result for young people, although it is rare.
More on this story via Western Journal:
Various studies have shown the vaccines to carry a greater risk of complications than initially expected, albeit not to the degree Levi indicated.
For example, shortly after the vaccines were introduced to the public, the Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca shots were found to cause vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia, a blood-clotting condition, in roughly 1 in 26,000 to 1 in 127,000 people, most of whom were young women.
Most public concern over the vaccines, however, comes from another rare yet serious side effect found in the Moderna and Pfizer mRNA vaccines: myocarditis. These side effects are found most often in young adult and adolescent males, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Some experts believe the severity of these side effects has been downplayed by health authorities.
“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.
