See my comments from back in December, where I spoke of the tyranny that will coerce you to inject a vaccine into your body, one that is untested (no data exists) for a variety of special subgroups. My core premise was the lack of safety and efficacy data across a broad population.
Now the WHO is explicitly acknowledging the legitimacy of my concerns by calling out pregnant women explicitly, and acknowledging that no data exists for some groups of possible concern. It seems to me that “try it and see what happens” is both anti-scientific and callous.
The COVID-19 vaccines are all (as a matter of public record as of Jan 2021) experimental/investigational. If they were not experimental, they would not require an emergency use authorization.
...WHO recommends not to use mRNA-1273 in pregnancy, unless the benefit of vaccinating a pregnant woman outweighs the potential vaccine risks, such as in health workers at high risk of exposure and pregnant women with comorbidities placing them in a high-risk group for severe COVID-19. Information and, if possible, counselling on the lack of safety and efficacy data for pregnant women should be provided...
Persons with autoimmune conditions
No data are currently available on the safety and efficacy of mRNA-1273 in persons with autoimmune conditions, although these persons were eligible for enrolment in the clinical trials. Persons with autoimmune conditions who have no contraindications to vaccination may be vaccinated.
WIND: I’m not a woman, but I have 3 daughters. And the question of an immune system response to placental tissue that coulder render a woman infertile has NOT been addressed to my knowledge.
As someone diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (an auto-immune disease), I fall into an area where no data exists. Ditto for my daughter. Ditto for millions of people.
Is it “science” to in effect call something safe when no data exists? Or more like magical thinking? WHO’s implicit use of the logical fallacy “absence of proof is proof of absence” is not science and definitely not good medicine. Ditto for the circular argument!
It’s one big guinea-pig experiment in my view, because the data on adverse effects is grossly underreported. Let alone tracking any longer-term effects. Business as usual in medicine.
Odds are you’ll be just fine with the vaccine. But if you’re not, it’s your problem. Each person has to weigh the benefits (how?) of vaccine risk versus getting COVID and then chronic viral sequelae. For most, the vaccine is the clear winner, as far as we know. But there will be “losers” in this equation. I don’t plan on being one of them.
