Covid vaccination and children

Imagine the profits which are being made by big pharma by expanding vaccination to even small children. And repeat doses. Despite the incredibly low mortality rate in young children.

This is a textbook case of Illich’s criticism of “right-wing” institutions. They want to make people dependent on repeat doses of their often useless products. The government (agencies) don’t mind – they are in bed with these people, and it isn’t their money anyway. The shareholders don’t care who they inject and who they scare. The best thing that can be said about Covid vaccines for children is that in most cases they cause little harm unlike for example ADHD drugs. In most cases because there is a small risk profile for Pfizer and adolescent boys.

ADHD drugging, mass over-use of anti-depressants, (I think in the US opioids) – and now pointless Covid vaccines. The media is usually silent or collusive. (The New York Times ran a piece the other day about the parents who have been traumatised by not being able to get their healthy three-year olds vaccinated; vaccine porn).

Anyway – enjoyable as always here is Senator Rand Paul showing us that Fauci is not answering the questions and there is no credible scientific basis for vaccinating children.

Lab leak update

This is a useful article in Al Jazeera giving an update on the non investigations into the origins of Sars-Cov-2.

It continues to amaze me just how little interest Western political and media circles have shown in getting to the bottom of the question of where this virus, which upended the world (in fact much of the upending was due to misplaced government responses, but that is a different matter) came from. In the US the Democrats have blocked all Congressional enquiries. Extraordinary. As the MIT scientist interviewed by Al Jazeera says – there is unmistakably a cover-up.

Al Jazeera – doing balanced journalism – reports that there has been a slew of recent studies which claim to locate the origins in the Wet Market. (The Wuhan Wet Market seems to fall in and out of favour as the putative origin). What strikes me about this is that it is a fact (as reported e.g. by Colin Butler a Professor at Australian National University in Canberra and UN Contributor) that China has not supplied researchers with all the required data. Indeed, as the article reports, China has removed useful information about the genetic sequences of early cases from the Internet – and the actual Wuhan lab database was hidden back in September 2019. So – these researchers who are loudly proclaiming “Wuhan market” (and therefore it seems “not lab”) are doing so despite a deliberately controlled and restricted evidence base. This is hardly objective science. Indeed it is extraordinary. But the media is often (not in this case) using these studies to once again dismiss the lab-leak theory.

More vaccine misinformation from UK government

This is “sponsored content” from the government in the Independent. The photograph features a doctor of Asian heritage so probably the piece is trying to address the low-take up of vaccinations in Asian communities.

“More than a year after the first COVID-19 vaccines were administered, the jabs have been proven to be safe and effective”. A straightforward piece of misinformation. All vaccines have a risk profile. None are in fact fully safe. AstraZeneca is more dangerous in terms of blood clots for young people aged 18-39 than Covid. [1] Pfizer carries a risk of heart inflammation especially for teenage boys.

“Boosters bring your protection against COVID-19 infections with symptoms back up to over 88 per cent”. Ok. But only for 3 months [2] and they offer limited protection against transmission.

The propaganda continues. It is in FAQ form and in response to “I’m concerned about the side effects of the vaccine, is the booster actually safe?” the answer is “Yes”. Mild side-effects are acknowledged. The science about (rare) but serious adverse events is suppressed.

There then follows some threats about long Covid and even a threat that you will not be able to form relationships. They are trying to scare people into getting vaccinated. No sex if you don’t get a booster!

The scientific and medical truth is that most of the vaccines offer some protection against Covid though that has now been downgraded to some chance of protection against serious illness and the effect is very short-lived. In addition as with most medicines there is a risk profile. Therefore individuals should weigh up the risks and benefits and make an informed decision as with any other medical decision. (For example I would not be against Pfizer as the risk profile for me is very low but given the limited protection a booster is not at the top of my list of priorities. I also take account of the the fact that I would need to take a booster every 3 months; I don’t want to become dependent on a vaccine).

The question has to be asked. If they are in effect having to lie what is going on? This is not a medical programme if they are misleading people.
