Pfizer, Moderna Shots More Likely to Cause Serious Injury Than Reduce Risk of COVID-Related Hospitalization

re: ethics in medicine
re: risk assessment
re: follow the money

Safe and effective? Effective is out the window within months (it it ever was), safety was never there. Maybe the COVID jab was a good thing for a small fraction of the population. That made sense on a risk assessment basis. Nothing else did or does.

Pfizer, Moderna Shots More Likely to Cause Serious Injury Than Reduce Risk of COVID-Related Hospitalization

2022-06-30, BY SUZANNE BURDICK

A new analysis of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine trial data shows the risk of serious injury following the vaccine is greater than the reduction in COVID-19 hospitalizations, according to a study posted June 23 on Social Science Research Network.

“Combining the trials, there was a 43% increased risk of serious adverse events of special interest and an absolute risk increase of 12.5 serious adverse events of special interest per 10,000 vaccinated participants,” the authors of the pre-print paper wrote.

Based on their findings, the authors called for a harm-benefit analysis of COVID-19 vaccines.

...Doshi leads the Restoring Invisible & Abandoned Trials (RIAT) initiative, which seeks to ensure clinical trial publications are accurate and complete, and data are publicly available. The study’s other authors are:

  • Robert Kaplan, Ph.D., who leads Stanford University’s Clinical Excellence Research Center and previously led the behavioral and social sciences programs at the National Institutes of Health and served as the chief science officer at the U.S. Agency for Health Care Research and Quality.
  • Dr. Patrick Whelan, M.D., Ph.D., associate clinical professor of pediatrics in the division of rheumatology at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA).
  • Sander Greenland, Ph.D., professor emeritus of epidemiology and statistics at UCLA who served as an advisor for the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Academy of Sciences.
  • Mark Jones, Ph.D., associate professor of health sciences and medicine at the Institute for Evidence-Based Healthcare, as well as a biostatistician at Bond University in Robina, Australia.
  • Juan Erviti, Ph.D. Pharm. D., qualified hospital pharmacist at Navarre Health Service, Spain.
  • Dr. Joseph Fraiman, emergency medicine doctor at Louisiana State University’s Lallie Kemp Regional Medical Center.

“This important study uses actual Pfizer and Moderna clinical trial data to show that the risks of serious adverse events outweigh the benefits of these vaccines against COVID-19 hospitalization,” said Brian Hooker, Ph.D., Children’s Health Defense chief scientific officer and associate professor of biology at Simpson University in Redding, California where he specializes in microbiology and biotechnology.

WIND: I’m not a big fan of meta analysis, but what else can you do with this vaccine scandal, where the control groups were eliminated (surely not an accident).

Could the “impossible” decrease in birth rates in Taiwan (heavily vaccinated) and the 6-sigma* increase in deaths in adults of working age in the USA have a causal relationship to the COVID jabs? Ditto for Germany.

Nothing adds up from a science or logic perspective. Maybe it was all planned. Because follow the money will rarely if ever fail you in life.

Poorly-tested medical interventions are now the rule. The rule is that if it’s profitable, it gets approved, one way or another, regardless of safety profile.

Ethics in medicine are a dumpster fire, with many doctors signing up for whatever the latest medical experiment happens to be, without objection. Meanwhile, ethicists who question things are fired.

To assume that your doctor can be trusted to have your best interests at heart is for children and idiots.

Which is not to malign the few independent-thinking trustworthy doctors out there. But the body of medicine is covered with festering boils of conformity, wokeness, and propaganda. And with most doctors now having a paycheck tied to toeing the line—locked up intellectually at risk of being fired from the corporate entity that employs them.

Birth rate in Taiwan?

Could the “impossible” decrease in birth rates in Taiwan (heavily vaccinated) and the 6-sigma* increase in deaths in adults of working age in the USA have a causal relationship to the COVID jabs? Ditto for Germany.

Reader Job H writes from Taiwan:

Mass vaccinations in Taiwan only began in June 2021, starting with the elderly. The age group that would have children only started to be vaccinated after summer 2021, so the vaccines could not have influenced birth rates (unless they caused abortions). Other societal factors (including Covid semi-lockdowns and the resulting loss of income) seem to blame."

The facts above were easy to verify, since the CECC (the government office in
charge) published very regular updates to whom was allowed to get a vaccine.
They released the ever-changing priority groups for vaccination (they were micro-
managing the issue, even ethnic descent would land one in a different priority
group).  They also reported about the alleged difficulties wrt obtaining vaccines,
which had the purely political reason that they wanted to bypass the sole distri-
butor for Asia because it was located in Shanghai).

... I have lived in Taiwan since early 2013.  I have tried to find decent housing, but
there is a SERIOUS housing problem in Taiwan.   People who work in Taipei
are facing housing prices of 800.000 USD and MUCH higher.  An OK apartment
will cost one 1-2 Million, and for good apartments I have seen prices up to 20
Million.  Taiwanese don't know you can buy a castle in England or a penthouse
next to central park for that amount.  But then: at least HALF of these houses
are bought as an investment, not to live in.  Just drive around at night and see
how many windows are lit.  In some areas it's no more than 20%.  Besides, the
news has reported about attempts to curb speculation.  They reported that most
houses are bought by *companies*, not families, because the interest rates at
banks are too low.

The problem does NOT affect older generations, since they used to own land or
houses before the housing boom occured.  I've met a taxi driver who owned a
whole block, and a house owner who used to be a petty farmer but now owned
half an apartment building in exchange for his land (he joked nothing would
grow there anyway).  But it DOES affect their children, who are often forced
to live in with their parents. 

Add to that the income stagnation.  Inflation was low, but news reported that
incomes didn't have any real improvement for 20 years.  Imagine!   Then Covid
came, and most business in the northern part of the country were forced to close.
That included restaurants and all entertainment venues.  Many small businesses
went to close as well.  People were laid off and got some 100-200 USD as gov.
compensation UNLESS people in one's family owned a whose (which ruled out
most younger adults, see above).

Also, there is hardly affordable child care in Taiwan, so to have children people
have to quit their jobs.  Which is not possible if one salary is spent on rent!  As
a result the birth rate has been under ONE for many years; only Korea is worse.
I haven't seen any serious reporting on a drop in births, even from that already
low level, but I think that the reasons I gave are a reasonable explanation.  People
are scared, they don't feel they have a future.

WIND: very interesting: a perspective I could never get from the news! But I’d still like to see the abrupt change in birth rate studied/explained; I am not satisified on that point.
