With COVID-19 vaccinations on the precipice of mass circulation, information media get on fire as they discuss that will certainly obtain the injection initially and also just how it will certainly be dispersed. The something they aren’t talking about, nonetheless, is the meaning of “effective” when it involves these vaccinations.
Early November 2020, Pfizer sent out the stock exchange rising1 when it revealed its injection is greater than 90% reliable.2 One week later on, Moderna — which created its injection prospect in simply 2 days3 — flaunted a 94.5% efficiency ranking.4
However, if you review Pfizer’s and also Moderna’s news release and also various other professional test details, you’ll see that they have actually omitted some truly important details. For instance: 5
- They don’t state the number of cycles they utilized for the PCR examinations they provided to count COVID-19 situations, which is important for figuring out the precision of those examinations
- They don’t state whether the “cases” had signs or otherwise
- They don’t discuss anything regarding hospital stays or fatalities, indicating there is no sign it stops either
- There is no sign regarding how much time the injection lasts if it absolutely works and also safety. Some indicators recommend you could require to take this injection every 3 to 6 months in order for it to be reliable
Odds Ratios Can Be Misleading
In a post released by the Mises Institute, Dr. Gilbert Berdine, associate teacher of medication at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, creates: 6
“The Pfizer research had 43,538 individuals and also was examined after 164 situations. So, about 150 out 21,750 individuals (much less than 0.7%) came to be PCR favorable in the control team and also regarding one-tenth that number in the injection team came to be PCR favorable.
The Moderna test had 30,000 individuals. There were 95 ‘cases’ in the 15,000 control individuals (regarding 0.6%) and also 5 ‘cases’ in the 15,000 injection individuals (regarding one-twentieth of 0.6%). The ‘efficacy’ numbers priced quote in these statements are probabilities proportions …
When the threats of an occasion are tiny, probabilities proportions can be misinforming regarding outright danger. An even more significant action of efficiency would certainly be the number [needed] to immunize to avoid one a hospital stay or one fatality. Those numbers are not offered.
An quote of the number [needed] to deal with from the Moderna test to avoid a solitary ‘case’ would certainly be 15,000 inoculations to avoid 90 ‘cases’ or 167 inoculations per ‘case’ protected against, which does not seem almost just as good as 94.5% reliable.”
Pfizer’s Number Needed to Vaccinate = 256
In a letter to the editor, Dr. Allan Cunningham, a retired doctor in New York, likewise explains that Pfizer’s 90% efficiency ranking falls short to inform the tale in a way that individuals can recognize, and also takes place to approximate the number required to immunize for Pfizer’s injection. He creates: 7
“Specific information are not provided yet it is very easy sufficient to approximate the numbers included, based upon the 94 situations in a test that has actually enlisted regarding 40,000 topics: 8 situations in a vaccination team of 20,000 and also 86 situations in a sugar pill team of 20,000.
This generates a COVID-19 strike price of 0.0004 in the injection team and also 0.0043 in the sugar pill team. Relative danger (RR) for inoculation = 0.093, which equates right into a ‘vaccine effectiveness’ of 90.7% [100(1-0.093)]. This appears outstanding, yet the outright danger decrease for a person is just around 0.4% (0.0043-0.0004=0.0039).
The Number Needed to Vaccinate (NNTV) = 256 (1/0.0039), which implies that to avoid simply one COVID-19 situation 256 people need to obtain the injection; the various other 255 people obtain no advantage, yet undergo injection negative impacts, whatever they might be and also whenever we discover them.”
Major Safety Questions Still Remain
Indeed, when it involves security, it’s important to understand that because just a few thousand validated healthy and balanced volunteers have actually been subjected to the real injection, the actual beta testers will certainly be the masses of individuals that align initially to take the vaccinations when they concern market.
In his short article, Berdine worries he has yet to discover a clinical coworker that wants to be amongst the very first to take the speculative injection. Most state they wish to evaluate the security information after a year or two of usage prior to they’ll think about obtaining it.
“These colleagues are concerned about possible autoimmune side effects that may not appear for months after vaccination,” Berdine creates. It’s worth keeping in mind that none of the tests presently underway consist of immunocompromised volunteers, so the impacts of these vaccinations on individuals with reduced immune feature is entirely unidentified.
This is a considerable trouble, seeing just how an approximated 14.7 million to 23.5 million Americans struggle with some kind of autoimmune illness,8 and also these individuals are likewise at boosted danger for COVID-19 problems and also fatality.
If the injection intensifies autoimmune troubles, the end result can be ruining for a remarkable variety of individuals. The volunteers presently enlisted in tests are all much healthier than the standard American, yet adverse effects show up commonplace also amongst this “elite” team.
What You Can Expect From the COVID-19 Vaccine
An October 20, 2020, short article9 in the Observer details the well-known adverse effects that have actually arised in the different tests. Chills, high temperature, body pains and also frustration are one of the most widespread, yet a minimum of 2 situations of transverse myelitis — swelling of the spine — have actually likewise taken place.
Even the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and also Prevention cautions that the injection’s side effects are “no walk in the park,”10 and Saad Omer, director of the Yale Institute for Global Health, has stressed the need for a broad-based outreach campaign to discuss the reality of adverse effects, as patients might not come back for the required second dose if the side effects take them by surprise.11
Dr. Eli Perencevich, a professor of internal medicine and also epidemiology at the University of Iowa Health Care, has actually suggested essential workers should be granted three days of paid leave after they’re vaccinated, as many will feel too sick to work.12
A December 1, 2020, CNBC article,13 which looked at the frequency of adverse reactions, noted that 10% to 15% of participants in the Pfizer and Moderna trials reported “significantly noticeable” side effects.
Buried way down at the bottom of the article is a suggestion from a past advisory committee member, who proposes the nomenclature of “serious adverse reaction” be changed to “immune response,” so they can reprogram how people think about these side effects, even if they end up having to stay home from work because of them.
The article also admits they have no idea what, if any, long-term reactions there might be, which means (as we already knew) that this is a great big public health experiment and, of course, anything that happens post-marketing will be labeled a “coincidence.”
In related news, a participant in India’s AstraZeneca trial is now suing the company claiming the vaccine caused “serious neurological damage,”14 and a group of researchers warn the COVID-19 vaccines could potentially increase your risk of HIV infection.15 Then there are the concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine permanently altering your DNA, effectively turning you into a transhuman.16 As you can see, there’s a lot to consider before taking this vaccine.
Do We Really Need a COVID-19 Vaccine?
Berdine also points out that most of his colleagues believe “the uncertainties about safety exceed what they perceive to be a small benefit.”17 Indeed, at this point, a range of data suggest the COVID-19 vaccine may be completely unnecessary. For example:
• COVID-19 mortality is extremely low outside of nursing homes — 99.7% of people recover from COVID-19.18 If you’re under 60 years of age, your chance of dying from seasonal influenza is greater than your chance of dying from COVID-19.19
• Data clearly show that COVID-19 has not resulted in excess mortality, meaning the same number of people who die in any given year, on average, have died in this year of the pandemic.20,21 This is true even among the elderly, as evidenced in a Johns Hopkins University article published just before Thanksgiving. According to the article: 22
“The deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19. Since COVID-19 mainly affects the elderly, experts expected an increase in the percentage of deaths in older age groups. However, this increase is not seen from the CDC data. In fact, the percentages of deaths among all age groups remain relatively the same.”
As soon as the article started trending on Twitter, Johns Hopkins deleted it saying it “was being used to support false and dangerous inaccuracies about the impact of the pandemic.”23
• Studies24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31 suggest immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection is more widespread than suspected, thanks to cross-reactivity with other coronaviruses that cause the common cold.
• Asymptomatic people are highly unlikely to spread SARS-CoV-2 — A study32 looking at PCR test data from nearly 10 million residents in Wuhan city found that not a single one of those who had been in close contact with an asymptomatic individual (someone who tested positive but had no symptoms) had been infected with the virus. In all instances, virus cultures from people who tested positive but had no symptoms also came up negative for live virus.
Will COVID-19 Vaccine Save Lives?
Peter Doshi, associate editor of The BMJ, also questions the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines, pointing out that current trials are not designed to tell us whether the vaccines will actually save lives. And, if they don’t, are they really worth the risks involved? Doshi writes: 33
“What will it mean exactly when a vaccine is declared ‘effective’? To the public this seems fairly obvious. ‘The primary goal of a COVID-19 vaccine is to keep people from getting very sick and dying,’ a National Public Radio broadcast said bluntly …
Yet the current phase III trials are not actually set up to prove either. None of the trials currently under way are designed to detect a reduction in any serious outcome such as hospital admissions, use of intensive care, or deaths. Nor are the vaccines being studied to determine whether they can interrupt transmission of the virus.”
Doshi points out that when Dr. Paul Offit was asked in an interview whether a recorded “event” in these trials meant moderate to severe illness, he replied yes, “that’s right.” But that’s not, in fact, correct. All Phase 3 trials count mild symptoms, such as a cough, as a “COVID-19 event,” and all will finalize their analyses after a mere 150 or 160 of the volunteers develop symptomatic COVID-19 — regardless of severity.
“Part of the reason may be numbers. Severe illness requiring hospital admission, which happens in only a small fraction of symptomatic COVID-19 cases, would be unlikely to occur in significant numbers in trials.
Data published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in late April reported a symptomatic case hospitalization ratio of 3.4% overall, varying from 1.7% in 0-49 year olds and 4.5% in 50-64 year olds to 7.4% in those 65 and over.
Because most people with symptomatic COVID-19 experience only mild symptoms even trials involving 30,000 or more patients would turn up relatively few cases of severe disease,” Doshi writes.34
“Hospital admissions and deaths from COVID-19 are simply too uncommon in the population being studied for an effective vaccine to demonstrate statistically significant differences in a trial of 30,000 people.”
These trials also do not tell us anything about the vaccine’s ability to prevent transmission, as this would require testing volunteers twice a week for long periods of time — a strategy that is “operationally untenable,” according to Tal Zaks, chief medical officer at Moderna.35
COVID-19 Vaccine Poses Rare Distribution Challenges
Questions have also been raised about the potential for the COVID-19 vaccines to “go bad” due to improper storage. Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine has to be stored at an unheard of cold temperature even for Antarctica — minus 70 degrees Celsius, or 94 degrees below zero, Fahrenheit. Moderna’s can be kept a bit warmer, at “just” minus 20 degrees C, or 4 below zero F. Both pose a problem for providers who will be administering the shots.
To get an idea of why the vaccines have to be frozen, NPR compares them to chocolates that melt easily.36 The reason the vaccines are so fragile is because they’re made with messenger RNA (mRNA), which turn your own cells into little factories that produce SARS-CoV-2 protein that in turn trigger antibody production.
The problem is that mRNA is easily broken down, so it needs the freezing temperatures to keep stable. Pfizer said its special packaging keeps the vaccines frozen with the help of dry ice. Even so, providers will still have to abide by strict guidelines, one of which says the freezer compartment storing the vaccines cannot be opened more than twice a day, and when opened, must be closed within one minute. Once thawed, the vaccine can be kept refrigerated for five days.
The whole situation makes distribution a challenge, too since the smallest amount you can order is 975 doses. That means the vaccines most likely will have to go to places capable of administering large numbers of vaccines in a short period of time to avoid spoilage. What happens if the vaccine is mishandled and spoils? No one knows. At best, it may be ineffective. At worst, it may cause completely unexpected side effects.
The Gold Rush of Vaccines and Indemnity
The risk of side effects is particularly troubling in light of the fact that vaccine manufacturers are indemnified against any harm that occurs from the use of their vaccines. In the video above, Children’s Health Defense (CHD), founded by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., highlights the gold rush that occurred for pharmaceutical companies when the World Health Organization declared swine flu a pandemic in 2009.
Several experimental vaccines were hastily rushed to market following the WHO’s pandemic declaration, one of which resulted in thousands of European children and teens developing chronic narcolepsy and cataplexy (the sudden collapse due to loss of voluntary muscle control triggered by strong emotions or laughter).
In 2011, the ASO3-adjuvanted swine flu vaccine Pandemrix (used in Europe but not in the U.S. during 2009-2010) was causally linked37 to childhood narcolepsy, which had abruptly skyrocketed in several countries.38,39 Children and teens in Finland,40 the U.K.41 and Sweden42 were among the hardest hit.
Further analyses also discerned a rise in narcolepsy among adults who received the vaccine, although the link wasn’t as obvious as that in children and adolescents.43
A 2019 study44 reported finding a “novel association between Pandemrix-associated narcolepsy and the non-coding RNA gene GDNF-AS1” — a gene thought to regulate the production of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor or GDNF, a protein that plays an important role in neuronal survival.
They also confirmed a strong association between vaccine-induced narcolepsy and a certain haplotype, suggesting “variation in genes related to immunity and neuronal survival may interact to increase the susceptibility to Pandemrix-induced narcolepsy in certain individuals.”
Now, in the midst of another controversial pandemic, we’re facing an eerily similar playbook — with pharmaceutical companies eager to cash in on the first COVID-19 vaccine, which begs the question, “Are we are being played — again?”
Not the First Hoax — Practice Makes Perfect
Pandemics have come and gone around the globe for centuries, but in recent history they’ve been used as points of manipulation that have profited corporations, particularly pharmaceutical companies.
The 2005 bird flu epidemic, for example, was predicted to kill from 2 million to 150 million people. It killed just 98 people, globally, in 2005, 115 in 2006 and 86 in 2007.45 No one in the U.S. died from this infection. The brazenness of the hoax prompted me to write my New York Times best seller book “The Great Bird Flu Hoax.”
In 2006, 2007 and again in 2008, hyped warnings over the bird flu were repeatedly exposed as little more than a cruel hoax, designed to instill fear and line the pocketbooks of industry and various vested individuals. In 2009, there was the swine flu hoax, the vaccination project for which, as mentioned, turned into a disaster.
The summer of 2012 was again filled with dire predictions of bird flu sufficiently mutating to cause a human pandemic, immediately followed by urgent calls for fast-tracked vaccines. None of these pandemics ever turned into global killers, and COVID-19 is no different. As mentioned earlier, there’s no evidence of excess deaths due to this novel virus.
The COVID-19 pandemic differs from previous ones, however, in that it’s being used not just to enrich drug companies and justify the existence of gain-of-function research, but also to usher in a “reset” of the entire global economy by the technocrats. While failing economies around the world are blamed on the pandemic, the central bank system has been faltering for some time and is now on its last leg.
The global debt load is now so high, countries cannot even pay off the interest, and thus the system no longer works. It needs to be “reset,” but rather than ditching the central bank system and resetting it to something stable (such as returning to a gold-backed system), the technocrats in charge are ushering in an all-digital centralized currency that will give them total control over the finances of every human on earth.
What’s more, the economic reset is only one part of this all-encompassing totalitarian takeover. The COVID-19 vaccine fits into the scheme by providing an excuse to track and trace everyone’s whereabouts, and connect this medical surveillance together with the digital economy. You can learn more about this in “What You Need to Know About the Great Reset.”
No Accountability for Vaccine Harms
As noted by Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), based on the historical failures of past coronavirus vaccines, a fast-tracked COVID-19 vaccine could become one of the biggest public health disasters in history.
And, no one involved will be held accountable or face any repercussions, just as GlaxoSmithKline was not held accountable for the narcolepsy cases caused by Pandemrix. Instead, they will all continue to profit while an unsuspecting public will beta test yet another potentially dangerous vaccine.
Even if severe adverse effects are rare, when you’re talking about vaccinating some 7 billion people, even a tiny percentage will certainly translate into millions of individuals influenced.
