Interview with Maureen McDonnell of A discussion about injections for 6 month to 5 year old children


Just a heads up that this episode is not about EC. It’s about something I have deeply researched and wish to share, from the perspective of an expert.

Feel free to skip this one, or read the trigger warning below and bravely listen even if it’s not your bag.😘

Our next episode is about homeschooling and will be out on Tuesday! So be sure to stay along for that and 8 more EC-solution-oriented podcasts to follow it!! 🙌

Maureen McDonnell, RN, founder of Millions Against Medical Mandates and I discuss Pfizer's recent application (and surprising withdrawal) for EUA of their injection for babies 6 months to 5 years. If you have been concerned with the spiking accounts of side effects of the injection, DROP EVERYTHING and listen in!

Wherever you stand on this issue (even if you're not sure), as parents we have the right to do our due diligence and make the choices that are best for our own families, without coercion, without shaming. Unfortunately, much of the information out there is one-sided, so this episode is meant to balance that so you can make an INFORMED decision regarding your own family.

As you know, I am allllll about sovereignty and raising children naturally. That’s what pottying our babies from birth is truly rooted in! So although this episode is “different,” Maureen and I make lots of references to this style of parenting throughout the interview. Hope you enjoy this fresh, well-researched perspective!

PLEASE NOTE: If this topic is sensitive for you, I highly recommend listening in full or skipping this episode altogether. I strongly believe this decision is each person's to make, for themselves and their children, and I have no judgment for your choice in the end. My goal is to decrease division, actually. Right now we really need each other, so if you have done your due diligence and we end up disagreeing, no worries, no judgment. I just feel this is a very important and timely, almost urgent, topic, and I hope you enjoy the information.

You will hear:

  • the incredible increase in the number of vaccines given to children
  • whether the injection medically qualifies as a “vaccine”
  • whether vaccine manufacturers are held liable
  • hopeful news regarding mandates for babies and young children
  • why discerning parents “follow the money” (just like with the diaper companies!)
  • the danger with adding children's injections to the Emergency Use Authorization
  • what emotional + censorship triggers can signal and what to do (what to do if this triggers you)
  • post-injection: what the world's top cardiologist and most-published MD is seeing
  • how covid actually affects babies
  • the startling revelation of the PCR test's creator
  • where immunity starts and the best way to boost it
  • the germ theory and how it shaped our modern medical practice
  • antibody presence vs. immunity
  • sources for education and empowerment

About Andrea Olson

I'm Andrea and I spend most of my time with my 6 children (all under 12 yo) and the rest of my time teaching other new parents how to do Elimination Communication with their 0-18 month babies. I love what I do and try to make a difference in one baby or parent's life every single day. (And I love, love, love, mango gelato.)

    I admire your work around EC and I have super bought into that. I have gotten so accustomed to truly research based resources like Evidence Based Birth ( so I expected a truly informed, study referencing, data based, perhaps two sided interview with opposing viewpoints and factual data presented here, but it’s actually full of references to sources that are not research based (and are instead anecdotal, fear based, conspiratorial). Mercola and Facebook are not valid scientific sources. I’m concerned that this podcast episode is spiraling toward fear mongering, while claiming that some amorphous “they” are trying to stir fear and division. I have had level headed, informed conversations on both sides of the Covid vaccine subject but have only seen fear and division being stirred up in the anti-vax crowd.

    As much as I’m opposed to using anecdotes as evidence, I’d like to share that I struggled with infertility for almost two years but conceived the day after my second Pfizer shot. I appreciate that you’re trying to be wholistic about health, and I agree that big businesses will try to take advantage where they can, but I call baloney on so many of the things declared as truth here. There are well documented consequences (like death and serious complications) in pregnant people and infants catching Covid. Infertility is more often caused by Covid than by the vaccine (the current hypothesis is that it is temporary and caused by fever).

    To anyone else that listens to this episode, I think it’s important to keep in mind that it is NOT a balanced take on the topic. It is a very one-sided view with a heavy dose of skepticism around vaccines that references many non-scientific sources.

      Very valid post you did, Layla! I recently listened to her interview with Dr. Sears and I too felt it was very one sided and full of references towards people that stir up division and conspiracy theories such as Rogan, Robert Kennedy, etc. It is not a balanced topic whatsoever and it is saddening she would turn this blog into this with her recent podcasts. Bring on these topics Andrea however with opposing sides to bring to light different points of view so people can then really open their eyes more to what’s best for them. I regret buying the book and investing in the underwear etc. to someone who supports this nonsense of conspiracies.

        Thank you for tuning in, I appreciate your thoughts. As I aim to bring balanced information, I also always encourage you to do your own research and make the best decision for your family.

    • Andrea Olson Andrea Olson on May 3, 2022 at 4:51 pm

      I encourage you to listen to a newer podcast I did with Dr. Sears, a renowned author and pediatrician, there you will find balanced information based on what he has seen in his own office. As always, I do my best to bring forth well balanced information, however I still encourage you to do your own research and ultimately to make the choices best suited for your family.

    Andrea, I want to thank you for being brave enough to make this post and make me feel less alone. I know of too many people who died or fell ill shortly after getting a C19 shot (some of them under 18y.o., some young mothers), but I usually just stay quiet and pray for their families.
    To Layla, if you think VAERS and Dr. McCullough are unscientific sources, I’m not sure what is. I am however DEEPLY grateful you were able to conceive post-shot. It gives me hope for my inoculated friends who are trying to conceive. I’m also grateful you haven’t felt coerced by mainstream media, an employer and the gov’t. I guess Andrea’s interview here is for those of us who have felt they were being pressured to do something they weren’t sure about.

    • Andrea Olson Andrea Olson on May 3, 2022 at 4:59 pm

      Thank you so much for tuning in! My aim is to bring forth balanced information. I know this topic is a controversial one, but there are many of us that have felt pressured to make choices by family, friends, doctors, and government that do not align well with us.

    Thank you so much for this episode. We experience the same over here in Europe. Thank God, more and more doctors and scientists are finally questioning what is happening here.

    August 2021, I had a horrible gut feeling that something was seriously wrong. I downloaded 14,000 VAERs death reports (I made it through about 300, but was too depressed after the report of a teenager dying on a Zoom call, which was reported by his mother), and started to do deep research from all view points and articles with my Biology degree background and medical experience, no ego involved, I just wanted truth. Basically everything Maureen has said goes with the research and unpopular, humble conclusion I came to. The truth is that Pfizer has paid over 4 billion for fraud, false claims and bribery since their biggest payout in 2009. This isn’t hidden; it is public knowledge on The truth is that they are not liable and are not paying for autopsies, even of children who have died from their product. The truth is that in pages 47-49 of the clinical trials, a pregnant woman was not supposed to be in the presence of someone who has had the inoculation. The truth is in trials, a woman could not try to conceive for 28 days due to risk of birth defects. The truth is that my body was used and abused by a medical system I at least trusted enough to take the jab feb 2021 thinking I was helping others and allaying the fears of the elderly around me….The truth is, I have had stabbing pains in my heart throughout the year, maybe 5x, 2 scary heart episodes and felt that my immune system went down (I have some history of heart issues, though I have run several half marathons and eat healthy, I did conceive 4 months after the jab, so some issues are due to this 2nd pregnancy, but I know my body)….The truth is that I probably had Covid January 2020 while living in Hawaii, as my husband has had over 150 negative tests at his work in 2 years, with regular risk of exposure to patients, The truth is I have felt shamed and isolated as a vector of disease, when all along I likely couldn’t even get or spread it. On a further note, the truth is that I would never have given my daughter a second mmr in 2019 before traveling if I had known she would later have two neurological episodes. The truth is, if she wasn’t breastfed almost 4 years now, she might have had enough brain inflammation to induce autism. I have no idea, and neither does public health. If you want to know what’s in the MMR, rent the textbook Vaccines and Autoimmunity by Yehuda Schoenfeld, et Alia from your local library. Mind blowing, The truth is, we don’t know longterm risks. The truth is, I wasn’t given informed consent. The truth exists, apart from what we want it to be. Thank you, Maureen for seeking the truth, and sharing what you have found and allowing us to form our own opinions and beliefs from the evidence you are presenting. Censorship implies something you do not want revealed, while open dialogue brings truth. Your conclusions may not be popular, but I am not in this game of life for popularity or praise. I want truth, and I pray for justice. Godspeed.

      Hi Kari! Thank you for sharing your story. It is important that we all do our due diligence and find the facts just as you have. I’m so happy to not be in this alone. Thank You!

    Thank you so much Andrea for this powerful conversation with Maureen McDonnell! I love the amazing work that Maureen is doing at and with the 5 Docs. Amazing resource to find out the truth about this “vaccine” and what is really happening. Thank you for spreading the truth!

    Thank you Andrea, your work is always amazing and I’m thankful you are sharing this controversial topic. It is so important for people to realize this is all a political agenda and never once in the past has the government cared about anyone’s well being so why do they think that’s changed. This is very informative even for someone like myself that wasn’t surprised by anything that was said. YES it seems one sided but that’s because there is no benefit so there really isn’t any other side to portray of course other then the money as mentioned! I am in Canada for reference, I am not able to take my child swimming without choosing to share medical information and participate in an experimental injection.

    • Andrea Olson Andrea Olson on May 3, 2022 at 5:12 pm

      Hi! I am always happy to share the balanced information I have found. And, Wow I’m so sorry to hear that you can’t enjoy a fun pastime with your family without having to make that decision.
