Hello and Welcome,

COVID-19 News — Aspiration before Injection?

See the 13m53s YouTube video by Dr Moran | 17 Oct 2021.

He talks about "aspiration" before injection and the possible side effects if this is not done.

Aspiration means using the syringe plunger to withdraw a small amount of fluid before the actual injection of the COVID-19 Vaccine occurs.

The purpose is to make sure that the Vaccine does NOT go into a blood vessel but goes into the intramuscular area of the upper arm or Deltoid muscle.

He says the chance of hitting a blood vessel is probably less than 1%, but given the enormous number of COVID-19 vaccinations already given (6.5 Billion), that's an incredible number.

The problem is that intravenous injections may be the cause of blood clots with low platelets.

Something to ponder.
