A small group of anti-vaxxers continues to show up at a COVID-19 immunization clinic in Kelowna and one of them got into a confrontation with a security guard trying to keep the peace.

Bruce Orydzuk of Kelowna was outside Trinity Church in Kelowna today, July 13, with about ten other protestors, carrying a sign that said: “You are about to take part in a medical experiment with uninformed consequences, do you have informed consent on injury and death numbers?”

“This is not a vaccine, this is an experimental toxin, it’s gene therapy,” Orydzuk said.

Most of the protesters were peaceful but some caused problems as they were blocking traffic into the vaccination site.

At one point, Orydzuk began yelling at a security guard trying to get the protestors to move along.

“You are not a Canadian, you are disgusting,” he told the guard. “Go back to your country, you’re not a Canadian, beat it, you’re disgusting. You don’t know Canadian laws.”

The security guard told him to stay away from the property.

“Go back to India, we don’t want you here,” Orydzuk yelled.

On Orydzuk's public Facebook page, he has shared numerous conspiracy theories.

According to ImmunizeBC and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 vaccinations are safe and effective in protecting against COVID-19.

Reports of death after COVID-19 vaccination are rare with only 6,079 reports of death (0.0018%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine out of the 334 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines administered in the United States from Dec. 14, 2020, through July 12, 2021, according to the CDC.

Protests against COVID-19 vaccinations and restrictions implemented by Public Health have been ongoing throughout the pandemic in Kelowna including outside of a downtown media outlet and at Stuart Park.
