The Elephant in the Room: Orlando Residents Call Attention to Vaccine Injuries

The organization We Are Change Orlando raised funds to buy a life-size inflatable elephant to call attention to vaccine injury victims.

ORLANDO, FLORIDA — If you passed by City Hall on Tuesday, you may have noticed a life-size elephant posted outside the entrance. As Orange County residents gave testimony of injuries sustained from the COVID vaccines, the inflatable giant served as a reminder that there is “an elephant in the room.”

The elephant was brought by the local chapter of We Are Change, a nonpartisan organization dedicated to the search for truth, organizer Justin Harvey tells The Florida Standard.

“Our motto is to be the change that we wish to see in the world. We are focused on issues affecting our health and our freedoms,” Harvey says.

He and the group have been actively working against vaccine mandates and COVID restrictions since the start of the pandemic.


“We’ve been working to expose the lies and hypocrisy and the dangers of the vaccines, and to hold people in power to account for what they’ve done,” Harvey says.

The Florida Standard has previously reported on Orange County residents telling their vaccine injury stories during a Board of Commissioners meeting. Tuesday was the second time when citizens came forward to give their comments.

“Our mission is to get as many people as possible to come forward and tell their stories in a public setting, so that those in power can’t ignore it any longer. Vaccine injuries is the elephant in the room. We do this to prove to the mayor and commissioners that these people are real and that they can’t be ignored,” Harvey explains.


Earlier, when the mandates were in effect and before Governor DeSantis stepped in to stop local governments from enforcing tyrannical restrictions and mandatory vaccinations, Justin Harvey joined forces with 500 Orange County firefighters who refused to take the shot.

Now, he’s determined to do what it takes to call attention to how the COVID vaccines have caused injuries and death.

“We want as many people as possible to come down and testify at the next Board of Commissioners meeting on December 13 at 9 am. It’s very important to get those who have been injured on the public record,” Harvey says.
