Vaccine effectiveness of BNT162b2 against infection waned progressively from 92% at day 15-30 to 47% and from day 211 and onwards no effectiveness could be detected. Overall, vaccine effectiveness was lower and waned faster among men and older individuals. The effectiveness waned slightly slower for mRNA-1273, being estimated to 59% from day 181 and onwards. In contrast, effectiveness of ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 was generally lower and waned faster, with no effectiveness detected from day 121 and onwards. whereas effectiveness from heterologous ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 / mRNA was maintained from 121 days and onwards.
Overall, vaccine effectiveness was lower and waned faster among men and older individuals. For the outcome severe Covid-19, effectiveness waned from 89% at day 15-30 to 42% and onwards, with sensitivity analyses showing notable waning among men, older frail individuals, and individuals with comorbidities.
With airline flights now being barred from various nations in the latest knee jerk response to avoid importing the latest Covid variant, (which is apparently already here), this news item inadvertently destroys the case for mask usage.
The traveller from South Africa used a mask with a valve that doesn’t filter exhaled air and may have transmitted the virus to his neighbour when the hotel room door was open, a health department spokesperson said Friday.
As the mass vaccination program lurches to another grandiose failure, it would not be a surprise to see mask rules mandating the use of industrial respirators. Who knows what absurdity is next at this point?
France has postponed implementing a COVID-19 vaccination mandate for health workers in Martinique and Guadeloupe after the measure spurred widespread protests on the French territories in which police officers were injured and journalists attacked.
UK civil service sources said the variant, which is feared to be more transmissible and has the potential to evade immunity, posed “a potentially significant threat to the vaccine programme which we have to protect at all costs”.
I think its supposed to work the other way around. But what do I know.
And to round things out an interview with Geert Vanden Bossche. This is probably one of the better ones I’ve seen with Geert. Its long but his theories on what is going on, while complicated, are very well explained.
There is no threshold. No exact number. Instead, it’s a case-by-case scenario that is determined by the league, the NHL Player’s Union and medical experts. And it is far from perfect — or fair, for that matter.
The NHL no longer publicizes the daily list of those in COVID protocol. But that doesn’t mean the cases have subsided. Despite having a league that is practically fully vaccinated — Detroit’s Tyler Bertuzzi remains the lone holdout — the pandemic continues to take down players.
Every day, there are new players who have been infected. Most are asymptomatic. And yet, the NHL is still surprised by the rate of infection.
“The number of positive cases is more extensive than we originally anticipated,” said Daly, “but the nature of the cases we are seeing are generally less serious than they were last year, which is obviously a testament to the vaccine.”
How long will it be before this doctor gets turfed for challenging the standard Covid narrative? If she manages to avoid dismissal, that may be an indication that there is a little more light at the end of this very dark tunnel. She’s definitely pro-vaccine, but still recognizes the bizarre contradictions and futility of many aspects of current Covid strategy.
Politicians need to abandon the quixotic quest for COVID zero, making many of the interventions intended to stop virus circulation irrelevant. Public mask-wearing, social distancing etc. were only going to defer, not eliminate, transmission.
Society also needs to shift how it sees the unvaccinated. The prevailing opinion, including among many of my colleagues, is that the unvaccinated pose a threat to others. Since the vaccinated are still likely to be infected and transmit disease, with similar viral loads as those who are unvaccinated, this is not entirely true.
This is your chance to deprogram them. Facebook knows its algorithm radicalizes users. This is your chance to tell your aunt that maybe the news she gets from it isn’t all that reliable. And that maybe the MAGA news network is not giving her unbiased news, either.
Especially when it comes to vaccines, family members can actually win each other’s hearts and minds. A professor who has studied coronavirus-vaccine promotion at North Carolina State University, Stacy Wood, told The Washington Post that “the effort is worthwhile … A lot of people are convinced over time from small bits of information that trickle in.” According to a Time/Harris poll, 59 percent of people got vaccinated after a friend or family member did. You could literally save your creepy uncle’s life.
For Ms. Jong-Fast and other members of the Leftist Covid Cult, here are ten questions to ask them around the dinner table:
Can fully vaccinated people contract Covid?
Can fully vaccinated people give others Covid?
Statistically, are children more at harm if they contract Covid or if they get the Covid mRNA jab?
In short: children in Ontario will die because of potentially treatable brain cancer because of the government’s despicable fear mongering, the repulsive policies of the TV doctors, the influence of Big Pharma shills, the irreversible psychological damage they done to otherwise relatively functional humans, and because of the utter rot at the root of our socialist medical system.
But the main thing is that coronavirus “vaccination” will eventually be forced upon healthy children and ruin their hearts and/or kill them, and that for your health, you can’t buy a cup of coffee in this godforsaken province or go to a gym without showing your papers.
