better the Devil you know than the Devil you don’t
It seems that truckloads of Pfizer / BioNTech’s Covid vaccine are on their way from Belgium to the UK, where use of this brand-new miracle cure has just been approved by our medical regulator. Already our Prime Minister and Health Secretary are claiming that the end to the pandemic is in sight, and that the vaccine would ‘allow us to reclaim our lives and get the economy moving again…..’
I’m not holding my breath. The initial delivery of this particular vaccine will comprise of 800,000 doses, and given that two doses are required 3 weeks apart this tranche will treat a maximum of 400,000 people. Allow for logistical problems, wastage, people not turning up for the second dose after the rather nasty side effects from the first injection, and I predict that maybe a quarter of a million people might be properly immunised.
On top of that there are already arguments about who should be treated first, with some saying it should be care home residents and staff, while others insist the first to get the vaccine should be front-line health workers. That should be fun, the National Health Service has a staff of 1.4 million. The population of the UK is said to be 67,886,011 people ~ really? In which case put me down to be inoculated sometime after the first 67 million.
An effective and safe vaccine usually takes more than 10 years to develop, this Pfizer vaccine is hitting the English streets after only 10 months. This new vaccine is said to be 95% effective. Really? The most effective vaccine in medical history to date is the Tuberculosis vaccine which is proven to be 89% effective, while at the other end of the scale the vaccine against the Rotavirus is only 35% efficacious. The vaccine we are all supposed to have for measles is 69% effective. So, I don’t believe the coronavirus vaccine will be anything like 95% effective.
Anyway, why bother at all? Some 1.64 million people in the UK are said to have been infected by the coronavirus, or about 11% of the population. Really? There are so many false positives as to make the number of stated infections laughable. Of those infected 59,051 have died, or 0.08% of the population, and even those numbers are so massaged as to be meaningless.
The dry run for the mass vaccination programme is being called Exercise Panacea ~ how appropriate.
Many doctors, nurses, and other health professionals state privately that they will not be submitting to this vaccination. Neither will I, not ever.
this vaccine will prove to be a Frankenstein’s monster
