The Logic Of This Escapes Me

On Tuesday, Townhall posted an article quoting Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla on the effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine against the coronavirus.

The article reports:

Speaking during remarks to a J.P. Morgan healthcare conference this week, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla openly stated current vaccines the company developed for Wuhan coronavirus offer “limited, if any” protection against contracting current variants of the disease. He then encouraged booster shots. 

If two shots offer questionable protection, why in the world would anyone want to get a booster shot? What are you boosting?

The article also notes:

The statement from Bourla comes as the Biden administration continues to justify vaccine mandates for federal workers, contractors and private businesses. The Supreme Court heard arguments about President Biden’s mandates for private companies and medical workers last week. A ruling is expected soon on the constitutionality of the mandates.

A number of people who have pointed out the waning efficacy of Pfizer’s vaccines, which Bourla touted last year as being “100 percent” effective against contracting or transmitting the virus, have been banned by social media companies.

One of the problems with this entire discussion is the omission of natural immunity. In April 2021, Denver Channel 7 reported the following:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates about 35% of all Americans have been infected with COVID-19 over the last year.

From February 2020 to March 2021, the CDC estimates 114.6 million Americans were infected with COVID-19, 97.1 million had symptomatic illnesses and 5.6 million were hospitalized with COVID-19.

How many more have had Covid since then and have natural immunity? Just for the record, I had Covid in November 2020 and a very recent blood test showed that I still had antibodies. I think it’s time to consider natural immunity when we discuss the coronavirus and the vaccines.

The Facts Are Slowing Coming Out

On Thursday, The Patriot Daily Wire reported that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released more information about the possible side effects of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine.

The article reports:

As the FDA prepares to approve Pfizer’s new pill for treating high-risk patients infected with COVID, more information about dangerous side effects tied to its vaccine are coming to light.

Just yesterday, we reported another death tied to the vaccine in New Zealand. Now, documents released by the FDA reveal that drugmaker Pfizer recorded nearly 160K adverse reactions to its COVID vaccine in the initial months of its rollout.

The data were obtained by a group of doctors, professors, and journalists calling themselves Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency. They filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the FDA asking for their release. And the first tranche of documents revealed that, as of February 2021, when Pfizer’s shot was being rolled out worldwide on an emergency basis, the drugmaker had compiled more than 42K case reports detailing nearly 160K individual adverse reactions to the vaccine.

The data show the bulk of the adverse event cases, both serious and non-serious, were classified as “general disorders”.

You shouldn’t have to file a Freedom of Information request to get this data–it should be given to everyone who is considering getting the vaccine.

Please follow the link above to read the entire article. It includes the complete breakdown of data from Public Health and Medical Professionals For Transparency. There has to be a risk/benefit analysis when considering getting the vaccine. There also needs to be a discussion about how effective the vaccine actually is.

The Search For Transparency

On Wednesday, NewsMax posted an article about the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) timeline in releasing data on the Pfizer vaccine.  The FDA has requested 75 years to produce the data.

The article reports:

Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency has filed Freedom of Information Act requests for the data, which the FDA at first said would take 55 years to produce at 500 pages per month for the entire 329,000 page cache of documents.

Now the FDA is asking a judge to give it 75 years to produce the data, saying there’s over 59,000 more pages than weren’t mentioned in the first request. That would take the full release to 2096, wrote Aaron Siri, a lawyer working on the case.

“If you find what you are reading difficult to believe — that is because it is dystopian for the government to give Pfizer billions, mandate Americans to take its product, prohibit Americans from suing for harms, but yet refuse to let Americans see the data underlying its licensure,” he wrote.

The medical group is suing to speed things up.

The group says the data should be made public quickly because the FDA spent only 108 days reviewing it before granting emergency use authorization to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine — and because vaccine mandates are being issued by local and federal entities, Epoch Times reported.

The article concludes:

On Dec. 2, Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., introduced a bill calling for the head of the FDA to release all records about the vaccine in 100 days.

“Since the Biden administration is hell-bent on forcing these vaccine mandates on us, the public has every right to know how this vaccine was approved, especially in such a short amount of time,” he said in a statement. “After all, the FDA managed to consider all 329,000 pages of data and grant emergency approval of the Pfizer vaccine within just 108 days.”

The article cites what I think is one of the most important issues here:

that is because it is dystopian for the government to give Pfizer billions, mandate Americans to take its product, prohibit Americans from suing for harms, but yet refuse to let Americans see the data underlying its licensure

That should not happen in a free country.

 

The Next Step

Just the News is reporting today:

The Pfizer and BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine became the first Monday morning to receive full FDA approval. The two-dose immunization was initially the first to receive emergency use authorization in December of 2020.

The Biden administration, local governments, and some employers hope that the full approval means Americans who have, until now, been skeptical about receiving an unauthorized jab, will have their fears reduced and opt to receive the inoculation. The full approval is expected to lead to more businesses and institutions requiring vaccinations for employees and students.

This move paves the way for the healthcare tyranny many of us have feared.

On August 7th Global Research posted the following:

Open Letter to the Unvaccinated

You are not alone! As of 28 July 2021, 29% of Canadians have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, and an additional 14% have received one shot. In the US and in the European Union, less than half the population is fully vaccinated, and even in Israel, the “world’s lab” according to Pfizer, one third of people remain completely unvaccinated. Politicians and the media have taken a uniform view, scapegoating the unvaccinated for the troubles that have ensued after eighteen months of fearmongering and lockdowns. It’s time to set the record straight.

It is entirely reasonable and legitimate to say ‘no’ to insufficiently tested vaccines for which there is no reliable science. You have a right to assert guardianship of your body and to refuse medical treatments if you see fit. You are right to say ‘no’ to a violation of your dignity, your integrity and your bodily autonomy. It is your body, and you have the right to choose. You are right to fight for your children against their mass vaccination in school.

You are right to question whether free and informed consent is at all possible under present circumstances. Long-term effects are unknown. Transgenerational effects are unknown. Vaccine-induced deregulation of natural immunity is unknown. Potential harm is unknown as the adverse event reporting is delayed, incomplete and inconsistent between jurisdictions.

You are being targeted by mainstream media, government social engineering campaigns, unjust rules and policies, collaborating employers, and the social-media mob.

You are being told that you are now the problem and that the world cannot get back to normal unless you get vaccinated.

You are being viciously scapegoated by propaganda and pressured by others around you. Remember; there is nothing wrong with you.

You are inaccurately accused of being a factory for new SARS-CoV-2 variants, when in fact, according to leading scientists, your natural immune system generates immunity to multiple components of the virus. This will promote your protection against a vast range of viral variants and abrogates further spread to anyone else.

You are justified in demanding independent peer-reviewed studies, not funded by multinational pharmaceutical companies. All the peer-reviewed studies of short-term safety and short-term efficacy have been funded, organized, coordinated, and supported by these for-profit corporations; and none of the study data have been made public or available to researchers who don’t work for these companies.

You are right to question the preliminary vaccine trial results. The claimed high values of relative efficacy rely on small numbers of tenuously determined “infections.”  The studies were also not blind, where people giving the injections admittedly knew or could deduce whether they were injecting the experimental vaccine or the placebo. This is not acceptable scientific methodology for vaccine trials.

You are correct in your calls for a diversity of scientific opinions. Like in nature, we need a polyculture of information and its interpretations. And we don’t have that right now. Choosing not to take the vaccine is holding space for reason, transparency and accountability to emerge. You are right to ask, ‘What comes next when we give away authority over our own bodies?’

Do not be intimidated. You are showing resilience, integrity and grit. You are coming together in your communities, making plans to help one another and standing for scientific accountability and free speech, which are required for society to thrive. We are among many who stand with you.

There are two sides to this story. Unfortunately the media is only reporting one of them. Please do your own research on the vaccines and their safety.

We Can Expect More Of This In The Future (Unfortunately)

Yesterday The New York Post posted an article about the Port Washington High School Senior Prom. The prom will host about 500 people at the Village Clubs of Sandpoint.

The article notes some of the rules for the event:

Forget popular kids and dorks — seniors at one Long Island high school dance will be divided by whether they are vaccinated or unvaccinated against COVID-19, The Post has learned.

The school said that, per state and CDC guidelines, kids who are vaccinated will be able to attend maskless — while those who aren’t will need to wear a face covering.

Students will need to show proof of inoculation to attend mask-free, and will be given wristbands to signify they’ve gotten the jab, Dr. Ira Pernick, the school’s principal, said in a video sent to the senior class this week and seen by The Post.

In addition to wearing masks, those who haven’t been vaccinated will need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test before the party, Pernick said.

The article concludes:

The state Department of Health said that their implementation of the CDC guidelines “does not require vaccinated and unvaccinated attendees to remain in separate sections.”

Dr. Michael Hynes, superintendent of the Port Washington Union Free School District, said the year-end celebration was adhering to all state Health Department and federal rules.

“The health and safety of our students, staff and community are the Port Washington School District’s foremost priorities,” Hynes said in a statement. “The district is in close contact with local and state health officials and will continue to regularly monitor any changes in guidance.”

It should be mentioned at this point that none of the vaccines have full FDA approval at this time. The vaccines are approved for emergency use only. Pfizer and BioNTech have already started their application process for full U.S. approval of their Covid-19 vaccine. Rival Moderna is expected to submit for the same process for its shot later this month. Why are we in such a rush to put these vaccines into school populations when school populations are the least impacted by the virus?

 

When Do We Get The Vaccine?

Townhall posted an article today about the coronavirus vaccine.

The article reports:

James Hildreth, a top vaccine adviser for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), said the federal agency will decide on Thursday whether or not it will grant emergency use authorization (EUA) for Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine candidate. 

“We’ll spend the day on Thursday reviewing the data from Pfizer, and at the end of the day, a vote will be taken. So, by the end of the day next Thursday, there could be a decision made about the vaccine,” Hildreth told NBC News on Saturday.

As far as when the first vaccinations might happen in the United States, the FDA adviser said that could begin as soon as Friday. 

The article continues:

The Trump administration has prioritized the development of vaccines for the Wuhan coronavirus and news about Pfizer’s development of a safe and effective vaccine candidate arrived much sooner than many top experts had predicted. And vaccinations beginning on Friday is more welcome news as coronavirus cases surge across the nation and some states and local governments prepare for another round of lockdowns.

Pfizer announced in early November that its vaccine candidate developed with BioNTech SE was show to be more than 90 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 infections, well above the FDA’s efficacy requirement of 50 percent for a vaccine.

The article concludes:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities should be prioritized for vaccination. Individuals over the age of 65, essential workers, and those with underlying medical conditions should be vaccinated in a second phase.

It seems to me that any first responders should also be put at the top of the list.

This vaccine has been rushed through. It seems to be safe at least in the short term, but we have no way of knowing what the long term effects will be. However, if it will get us back to interacting with each other without being scared to death, I think it is probably a good thing.
