AG Landry Slams COVID Vaccinations While Also Owning Stock in COVID Vaccine Manufacturer

Though Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry has been a vocal opponent of the value of COVID vaccinations, Landry recently acquired new stock in Johnson and Johnson, one of the companies producing the vaccines. In his annual disclosure form filed with Landry’s state ethics board, Landry indicated that he owns common stock in Johnson and Johnson valued less than $5,000. On the one hand Landry is complaining about the vaccine’s effects. At the same time he is profiting financially as J&J’s stock continues to rise.

Earlier Friday, Landry tweeted that the public deserves truth about effects of COVID 19 vaccine on kids. A press release on Landry’s official website ( lays out Landry’s argument. “Leaders of the Louisiana Department of Justice are demanding transparency from the federal and state governments about the effects of COVID-19 vaccines on youth,” the release states.

Landry and Solicitor General Liz Murrill wrote “blistering” letters to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) regarding their concerns about what they allege are increasing reports of myocarditis and pericarditis in young adults who received the vaccine.

“Myocarditis is a serious medical condition that can result in heart failure, heart attack or stroke, arrhythmias resulting from damage to the heart muscle, and sudden cardiac death.  Both myocarditis and these consequences of having it can be fatal if not treated immediately, wrote Landry to Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, chairman of the CDC’s ?Covid-10 Vaccine Task Force.

“Similarly, pericarditis can last as long as three weeks and can also be recurring or chronic. It can lead to pericardial effusion, chronic constrive pericarditis and cardiac tamponade,” the letter continued.

Landry claims the CDC has been making “misleading and inaccurate” statements about these dangerous side effects and also believes the CDC’s  push to vaccinate otherwise healthy children and young adults could have “serious consequences.”

Murrill also wrote to Governor John Bel Edwards and state health department officials to criticize the state-sponsored media campaign aimed at vaccinating children despite the increasing occurrence of myocarditis and pericarditis.

“There is no doubt myocarditis and pericarditis are confirmed adverse reactions to the vaccines and the problem is getting worse, not better,” said Murrill in her letter. Murrill also said her son came down with myocarditis after receiving the second dose of the vaccine.

Landry wants the CDC and the state health department to “release clear and accurate information” regarding the potentially deadly consequences the vaccine is having on a small number of children and adult.

Landry admits that in an overall cost-benefit analysis, the CDC could rightly conclude that the benefits outweigh any risks, “it would provide little comfort to those suffering from the long-term damage caused by these conditions and to parents who may lose their children to sudden cardiac arrests.

There have been no published cases in Louisiana of sudden cardiac arrest by children who were recently vaccinated.

Under the direction of Governor John Bel Edwards, the state has created a vigorous multi-prong campaign to get Louisiana residents vaccinated. Registration is now open for Louisiana’s Shot At A Million lottery. Fourteen Louisiana residents who are vaccinated will win scholarships and cash prizes. Register online at or call 877-356-1511.

As of June 25, 2021, 1,758,345 Louisiana residents (37.8%) have received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine. 1,587,874 or 34.2% are fully vaccinated.

President Joe Biden had a goal of vaccinating 70% of Americans by July 4, 2021 but now admits that goal will not be reached.

VOTE (Voice of the Experienced) is holding a vaccine drive Friday (today) from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the headquarters, 4930 Washington Avenue.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Omicron Lambda Omega Chapter will be administering free Pfizer vaccine shots Saturday, June 26 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the McDonald’s, 3433 Carrollton Avenue and from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. at Whiskey & Sticks, 2513 Bayou Road.
