George Mason University Study Concludes Indoor Vaccine Mandates Were Totally Ineffective at Managing
“We find no evidence that the announcement or implementation of indoor vaccine mandates… had any significant effect on vaccine uptake, COVID-19 cases, or COVID-19 deaths.”
For almost 3 years now, pragmatic Americans have been shouting from the rooftops that mandates (masks, lockdown, and vaccines) were not only ineffective, but also detrimental to the health of our nation.
As real-world pandemic data continues to be scrutinized, more studies continue to be published by reputable institutions that clearly refute the narrative forced onto discerning Americans.
Most recently, a study conducted by George Mason University analyzed data from several key U.S. cities:
Washington DC … and concluded that:
“We find no evidence that the announcement or implementation of indoor vaccine mandates in the cites listed had any significant effect on vaccine uptake, COVID-19 cases, or COVID-19 deaths, and this is largely consistent for all US citizens that implemented the mandate.”
Let’s take a deeper dive into the George Mason study (you can download the paper here: Indoor Vaccine Mandates in US Cities, Vaccination Behavior, and COVID-19 Outcomes | Mercatus Center)
The authors’ investigation is worth a read. In a seemingly tongue-in-cheek approach, the authors subtly indicate they are awake to COVID narrative propaganda.
The introduction to the paper presents a stark contrast between the propagandized narrative, setting the stage to contrast the irrefutable evidence. The authors begin by referencing many of these city’s officials supporting mandates. One such official was Philadelphia’s mayor who stated:
“[Indoor vaccination mandates] are critical to slowing the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-
19… the science is clear: these measures will protect Philadelphians and save lives.”
The authors go on to acknowledge that the relationship between COVID-19 vaccine rates and cases/deaths is complex. For example, as vaccination rates increased, people became less willing to socially distance or wear masks.
Next, the study’s analytical methods were reviewed and demonstrate a statistically sound approach to examining the data. Cities (listed above) who enacted indoor vaccine mandates and their statistics were compared to cities without mandates with respect to pre- and post- mandate trends. The causal effects of indoor vaccine mandates on COVID-19 vaccine uptake, cases, and deaths were then calculated.
After, no statistically significant benefits were shown, the authors contrasted the empty promises by city officials with real world consequences of vaccine mandates, stating:
“Indoor vaccine mandates caused large disruptions for many individuals and businesses. New York
City, for example, fired 1,430 city workers for failing to comply… 90% of NYC restaurants reported
customer-related challenges… 75% having staff-related challenges.”
The paper also compared the effects between U.S. cities and European or Canadian provinces, citing that indoor vaccine mandates in US cities took place long after many European cities.
“Our results overwhelmingly support the conclusion that the city-level indoor vaccine mandates in
the United States had a statistically negligible effect on vaccine uptake, cases, and deaths, and
they were likely less effective when compared to country-level and province-level mandates
The results of the George Mason study likely comes to no surprise for our readers. Yet, the
evidence continues to overwhelmingly contradict the COVID-19 narratives forced upon Americans.
Will those city officials get away with their blatantly false claims?
Will the government or big tech ever accept culpability for censoring physicians and public health experts who looked at early data and spoke out against the propagandized narrative?
Will justice ever be found for all those Americans who lost their jobs simply due to refusing the vaccine?
It is incumbent on anyone who suffered from unfounded and unjust lockdown measures, mandates, and discrimination to NOT let these actions go without consequence.
