Vaccine Effectiveness

Johnson and Johnson say their vaccine is 66% effective at preventing moderate to severe symptoms.

This compares with 88% of people with no vaccine. So apparently the vaccine lowers your chances of not getting sick.

    maybe maybe NOT
    WHO that I have little faith in estimates 20 million lives saved from vaccinations since 2000. C-19 vaccine may be mandatory if you want to go back to work or not have restrictions on public access.

    “So apparently the vaccine lowers your chances of not getting sick.” This is not true.

    Read carefully, it says “preventing … symptoms”. Nothing is said about “not getting sick.”

    Excellent C-19 VAX Advice FROM A Dr.

    Colleen Huber, NMD, February 21, 2021
    Most of the links below are from medical journals, the FDA, CDC, and other entities that generally support vaccination, yet the information in this paper shows how EXTREMELY RISKY the COVID-19 vaccines are.

    In my family, we have a rule:  If you consider having an experimental medical procedure Be sure you have read about and can explain in your own words all of the known risks of that procedure before embarking on it.  Also, consider potential future risks.
    I ask that you, the reader, at least take time to consider the above, and at least consider reading information in the links below, before embarking on this experimental medical procedure.
    Is the COVID vaccine experimental?  Pfizer and Moderna make the COVID-19 vaccines in the US. The FDA granted “emergency use authorization” for these vaccines (herein “COVID injections,” because they are unlike conventional vaccines).   Emergency use authorization is required by law to be made only if there are no effective treatments for COVID-19.  
    * But are there effective COVID-19 treatments?  100s of studies done around the world have established, and repeatedly confirmed, fast, effective, well-tolerated treatments for COVID-19 that are in widespread use.  I briefly summarize them here. 
    * General risk vs benefit   An emergency experimental vaccine cannot be assumed to be safer than a virus with a very high survival rate, such as COVID-19.  The average survival rate for     NO COVID treatment at all is 99.74%, and we have very successful treatments available, which should easily achieve universal survivability from COVID, if widely available.  Where does 99.74% survival come from?  Dr. John Ioannidis is the most widely cited scientist in the world.  His estimate in June 2020 of a 0.26% infection fatality rate is now confirmed around the world.    100% – 0.26% = 99.74% average survival rate.
    Does the COVID injection work?  The COVID injection is not even known to stop the spread of COVID.  Dr. Larry Corey, who oversees National Institutes of Health COVID-19 vaccine trials said on 11/20/20: “The studies aren’t designed to assess transmission.  They don’t ask that question, and there’s really no information on this at this point in time.”
    What happened to the animals in the studies?  This technology has been tried on animals, and in the animal studies done, all the animals died, not immediately from the injection, but months later, from other immune disorders, sepsis and/or cardiac failure.  There has never been a long-term successful animal study using this technology.  No experimental coronavirus vaccine has succeeded in animal studies.  In this study, coronavirus vaccine caused liver inflammation in test animals.
    Specific risks of COVID injections, in roughly chronological order of side-effect manifestation:
    * Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is one of the ingredients.  This has been correlated with anaphylactic shock.   So the CDC is now recommending intubation kits at vaccination sites. 
    * mRNA:  Unlike a traditional vaccine, of injected, inactivated virus intended to stimulate antibody response, the COVID injection on the other hand is completely different in this respect.  It uses messenger RNA (mRNA), which is a blueprint for your cells to create COVID-like (spike) proteins.  Then your cells begin to make these COVID-like proteins.  However, those proteins, in turn, stimulate your body to make antibodies against them.  So now your body has been turned into a munitions factory for both sides of a war:  The bad guys (COVID-like spike proteins) and the good guys (the antibodies fighting against them).  However, before you pledge allegiance to the good guys, as you will see below, the good guys can be more lethal to the vaccinated person.
    * History of mRNA injections: This technology had disastrous results in dengue fever vaccines in the past.  Dengue vaccine is a mRNA vaccine.  When this was used in children in the Philippines, many vaccinated children had far worse outcomes than unvaccinated children when they were later exposed to dengue, and many died.  Prosecution for homicide resulted.  However, this had previously been known to happen with ferrets and with cats. In all cases, the vaccinated animal or human became more vulnerable to worse disease when confronted with it. It is expected that the relatively mild COVID-19 illness, with a survival rate of 99.74%, may reduce to a much lower survival rate and become a truly lethal disease in vaccinated people when they later become infected with it.  There are no peer-reviewed published human trials of mRNA vaccines at all, and no mRNA vaccine has ever been FDA approved. That’s how new the technology is.
    * mRNA can affect DNA.  One of the most worrisome risks with a mRNA vaccine is what can happen with reverse transcriptase.  This is an enzyme in every cell, and it can theoretically lead to the mRNA creating changes in the cells’ DNA, a process known as viral retro-integration.   Although this possibility had been thought unlikely, MIT and Harvard scientists found it happened here.  If some of the 30 trillion or so cells in your body become permanent COVID factories, what is the long-term impact on your health, and would you want that outcome?
    * Antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) problem:   Prior attempts to create a coronavirus vaccine killed all the test animals, after they were later infected with wild virus.  Here’s what happened:  mRNA instructed the mammals’ cells to produce the spike proteins of the coronavirus.  Then, later, when the animals confronted the wild virus, the intense build-up of antibodies had been stockpiled, and their sudden and overwhelming release killed the test animal.  These risks have been documented in Nature, Science and Journal of Infectious Diseases.  Here’s a study from Nature on that.
    * ADE mechanism:  ADE is a form of pathogenic priming, meaning the vaccine can result in a more severe disease, which has been seen in prior attempts at making coronavirus vaccines.  The antibodies made can be neutralizing (which inactivate a virus, and that’s good), but antibodies are a problem when they are non-neutralizing, because then these antibodies carry active viruses directly to macrophages, which then become infected.  This is how ADE happens.
    This antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) leads to:
    * increased viral replication (more viruses to make you sick); and
    * more severe disease
    * ADE result: These macrophages tend to go to the lungs and fill the lungs, causing overwhelming inflammation and airway obstruction (as found later on autopsy).    However, the augmented antibodies also attack similar-looking proteins on internal organs, resulting in cytokine storm and death or auto-immune disease and organ failure.  “Cats that showed high titers following vaccination succumbed at later timepoints to fatal disease.” 
    * What about miscarriages, and why have men been advised to freeze their sperm prior to getting the injection?  Both men and women are at risk for possibly permanent infertility, because the spike protein of a coronavirus “looks” to the immune system similar to Syncytin-1, an essential protein in the placenta.  This stimulates antibodies to fight the placenta, and possibly sperm.  Mid-term miscarriages, which are normally very rare, have occurred in women who have been vaccinated for COVID.  SARS-CoV-2 viral particles have been found to linger in the testicles of men after recovery from infection. 
    Israel is at this writing the most heavily COVID-vaccinated country in the world.  The findings of infectious disease experts are reported here, in which they determined, from the Israeli data, that the COVID injection causes:
    * ” . . .mortality hundreds of times greater in young people compared to mortality from coronavirus without the vaccine, and dozens of times more in the elderly . . .”
    How to protect yourself and your family
    * Always read the Product Package Insert.  This is required by law to be included with packaging of all vaccines, and US Informed Consent law protects your right to be fully informed prior to any medical procedure, and your right to reject any medical procedure.  45 CFR § 46.116.   These are universal principles enshrined in the Nuremberg Code and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Here is the Pfizer insert, and here is Moderna’s.  I strongly recommend reading ALL of it carefully with your family before you make a decision regarding whether to have the COVID injection.
    * Discuss the considerations above, as well as other information you have heard about the COVID injection in a relaxed, unhurried setting with your loved ones.  Make sure that you are not pressured into a procedure that you may regret in the future.  If you choose to defer or reject the COVID injection, know that you are not alone, and many healthcare workers have done the same.  “I’ve heard Tuskegee more times than I can count in the last month – and, you know, it’s a valid, valid concern.” Dr. Nikhila Juvvadi, a hospital chief clinical officer.
    * Share this page with others who are also considering the vaccine. 
    * If your employer or school attempts mandatory vaccination, show this information to them.  If that does not exempt you, ask your attorney to look into state and federal law prohibiting forced medical procedures. and may also have helpful information.

      Richard, thank you for posting this. Let me share my experience in the doctor’s office yesterday. I had my every-three month visit for a blood clot problem and high blood sugar problem since last April (I’m in excellent health now).

      The nurse came in first and did the usual blood pressure, temperature and questioning of how am I doing. Then I asked her how many amplification cycles was the hospital running on the PCR tests. She said she didn’t know. Then I told her that I didn’t trust the mRNA vaccine because of lack of proper testing.

      This was her reply to me, “The hospital encouraged us to take it because later it might be in short supply so I took it. I regret that now. I’m old school and I don’t believe in taking vaccines until they have been throughly tested.” This is from a nurse who has decades of experience.

      Then the doctor came in and we discussed my blood sugar and clot problems for about ten minutes. Then I asked him, “Do you know how many amplification cycles the hospital is running on the PCR test?”

      He replied, “No but let me check.” He then began typing on his laptop and the answer came back, 40 cycles. Then I said, “Well, according to the WHO anything over about 30 cycles gives too many false positives and is essentially useless.”

      He remained silent and didn’t contradict me. If a patient is laboring under a misapprehension of something the doctor will usually give the patient the correct information. It is telling that he remained silent.

      From the time the doctor came into the exam room until I left neither one of us spoke the word “vaccine.” I am 70 and a prime candidate for the vaccine. So, he neither encouraged nor discouraged me from getting the shot. He simply didn’t bring the subject up. I believe my doctor knows the truth and he probably would have gotten in trouble if he discouraged me so he chose to remain silent.

      I believe he did the only ethical thing under the circumstances. I really don’t expect him to commit professional suicide.

    Collen Huber’s article is excellent.
    Noted that the only longish term experiment was with animals – who all died!
    Enough said – I’m convinced not to take it.

  6. mwhite says:

    “A growing body of clinical data suggests that a cytokine storm is associated with COVID-19 severity and is also a crucial cause of death from COVID-19. ”

    If you are not continuously being re-infected antibodies disappear after about 3 months, so next winter people being vaccinated now will have no antibodies.

    When I saw my father-in-law vaccine card, it recorded the vaccine manufacturer and manufacturer lot number.

    On the back, there was a link to record adverse effects of the vaccine. The website has information that can be downloaded for analysis. I was planning ti do analysis but cannot be done on iPhone As with reporting systems, somethings may not reported
