Thu, 2020-12-03 10:55

I'm pro vaccine but conflicted and hope enough data on the safety of it on a mass population level is available when I am eligible to get jabs. My asthma has seen me have pneumonia twice with the second time resulting in secondary septicemia and a week in hospital on a drip so I am susceptible to the effects of Covid.
 
The main thing is to make sure that the most vulnerable, particularly the elderly have a level of immunity to this scourge.
 
My hope out of all this is that the intensive medical research into Covid-19 inadvertently unlocks unexpected treatments to other areas of disease, particularly cancers that manifest earlier in life such as breast, skin, brain and blood cancers.

Thu, 2020-12-03 14:09

No. Which will probably make my life hard in the next few years with my family overseas. I am even considering relocating because of that. If you look outside of the mainstream media and actually do your research, there is just too much stuff out there to ignore and not to consider. It's a type of vaccine we have never used before. Long term effects are unknown. Manufacturers are not liable for side effects (would you buy any product without manufacturer's backing?) CEO of one of the manufacturers cashed in 60% of his shares on the day of efficiency announcement. Bit strange, when the company is expected to make billions of $. By the way, same company which paid US$4.75 billion in fines over last 20 years for 80 different violations. Still trust them?
The list just goes on. Gates has a lot of money in it. Given his history of involvement in vaccines, red flag there. UK advertising for AI software to record all the side effects. Another red flag.
Here in Australia, agency which normally oversees your genetically modified corn and other GMOs has to sign off on the vaccine. Good thing in a way, but it also shows how deep this goes into your body.
Do your research. Don’t trust what is put in front of you. Couple years ago DDT was the best thing to treat flees, asbestos was a miracle mineral and smoking was good for pregnant women. All that endorsed and advertised.
Find as much information as you can. Make an informed decision. Then you can decide if you want lung cells from aborted foetus or a chimpanzee virus with your vaccine. Or maybe no vaccine at all. It's your body and nobody should and can tell you what to put in it. That includes your workplace.
At the moment, the cure is worst than the disease. Maybe one day we will have a safe and effective vaccine. But that will take several years to find out. As it always have with vaccines. You can't cook a thick filet steak for a minute and call it well done. Well, you can call it that, but it's not.

 Here you go Likc:Regulators

Fri, 2020-12-04 11:02

 Here you go Likc:

Regulators cut corners to test the vaccine quickly

Since the virus began circulating earlier this year, scientists have been working around the clock to find a suitable vaccine and treatments.

The UK government department Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has been able to test the vaccine at a faster pace than usual due to the fact that clinical trials overlapped.

Data was examined in tandem, whereas usually it would be done separately.

The safety checks were still the same – and this was something the experts couldn’t compromise on.

“That doesn’t mean that any corners have been cut, none at all,” June Raine, head of regulator MHRA, said.

Dr Raine said experts had worked “round the clock, carefully, methodically poring over tables and analyses and graphs on every single piece of data”.

Pfizer’s vaccine side effects

Ones dubbed “very common” affecting more than one in 10 people include:

  • pain at injection site
  • tiredness
  • headache
  • muscle pain
  • chills
  • joint pain
  • fever

 

Other side effects dubbed “common” affecting up to one in 10 include:

  • injection site swelling
  • redness at injection site
  • nausea

 

While “uncommon” ones that may affect up to one in 100 people include:

  • enlarged lymph nodes
  • feeling unwell
 

2. The COVID vaccine is a repetition of the Thalidomide scandal

Thalidomide is a drug that many people came to distrust after it was marketed as a treatment for morning sickness in pregnant women in the 1950s and 60s, and caused serious birth defects.

But experts say it cannot be compared to a vaccine. Thalidomide went into the bloodstream whereas the COVID vaccine gives antibodies to fight off the virus.

Thalidomide was never properly tested, nor did it go through the rigorous monitoring system that the COVID vaccine has.

A consultant for the Thalidomide Society said the comparisons were “insulting”.

Dr Ruth Blue said it was “a bit insulting that suddenly Thalidomide gets remembered after all these years when it suits anti-vaxxers to have something to compare to”.

She added: “The outcome of Thalidomide completely changed the way drugs are tested and are passed.”

3. Bill Gates is using the vaccine to secretly microchip the world

Billionaire businessman Bill Gates’ charity works in vaccine development and the Microsoft founder is often subject to conspiracy theories.

There is no evidence that Mr Gates or anyone else is trying to microchip people through the use of a vaccine. Mr Gates has denied the claims.

The theory originated from a study that was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that stated the team developed an “approach to encode medical history on a patient” by including a small amount of dye with a vaccine.

However, it never experimented on humans and did not include any hardware technology, such as microchips.

Earlier this month police had to break up protesters who had gathered outside the headquarters of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in London.

British anti-vaxxer and conspiracy theorist Piers Corbyn was one of the people at the forefront of the protests.

4. One of the first participants in the vaccine trial has died

This is false. The first participant, Dr Elisa Granato, is still alive.

Dr Granato was one of the first participants in human trials of the AstraZeneca and Oxford University vaccine.

The false claims of her death prompted her to confirm she was “very much alive” and “having a cup of tea”.

5. Vaccines alter your DNA

The vaccines do not alter your DNA. They comprise mRNA that gives the body instructions on how to make proteins on the surface of the virus.

6. The government is passing law so that it can’t be held responsible

Another myth circulating in the UK is the government will pass a law which will mean that if the vaccine goes wrong when it is distributed, it cannot be held to account.

This is incorrect – the UK Government held a consultation on whether it should change the rules around unlicensed vaccines.

Unlicensed is not the same as untested and a manufacturer would still be liable if it did not meet safety standards, or if it was defective.

7. The Oxford vaccine contains parts of aborted foetus

Facebook has been awash with this myth after a user falsely claimed the vaccine uses MRC-5 cell lines, which were “originally developed from research deriving lung tissue of a 14-week-old aborted caucasian male foetus”.

AstraZeneca said its vaccine was not developed using MRC-5 cell lines but does use a different cell strain, taken from a female foetus aborted in the 1970s.

The cells do not make it into the final jab – so they would not be injected into a patient.

They are cell lines that have been grown in a laboratory from a primary cell culture originally taken from a foetus.

8. It was created too quickly to be safe

This is incorrect — the global need for a vaccine has meant that experts everywhere have been working all hours to develop a jab.

“With Covid vaccines it is clear that we have a global public health emergency on our hands and that even waiting five years for a Covid vaccine if we don’t have to is completely the wrong thing to do,” the UK’s deputy chief medical officer Jonathan Van-Tam said.

He said this meant the “shackles had come off in terms of investing”, and governments such as the UK’s had invested hundreds of millions of pounds “to try and speed it up”.

The standards for safety and effectiveness have not, however, changed due to the speed of production and testing – and it is still subject to independent regulation.

In the UK’s case, this comes from the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), which approved the Pfizer vaccine on Wednesday.

Well done. You are half way

Fri, 2020-12-04 14:16

Well done. You are half way there. Now take each and every point and try to dispute it (or fact check it, as they call it now). Then make up your mind. It doesn’t take much to get completely different message out, or just half true.
Let's look at no.6 for example.
What seems to be really happening is, that the manufacturer(s) have been granted immunity from being sued for any damages caused by the vaccine made up to the standard (the way such a vaccine received approval). Which is what one would hope the manufactures can produce.
However if there is another issue, lets make it easier to imagine and say somebody spills their morning coffee into a bucket with the vaccine, and then they pack it, distribute it and it gets injected into people, then they can still be held accountable for any damages. It looks like they are happy to take that risk, because that situation is unlikely, yet possible.
And that's basically what they are saying in no. 6 of your article. Not lie, but only half of the true. So people without critical thinking go. All good then.
So my understanding and I am again happy to be corrected is, that if the vaccine is "defective", you can sue the manufacturer, but if it causes any side effects or damages, then you have to sue the government. Or in some countries you might get an one off pay out as a compensation.

I agree. It was just an example of what it practically means – to make a defective product. I don’t think something like that can happen. But some other accident or fault on the production line can. In the volume of the expected production it's almost inevitable. But I don’t think that's the worrying part.

Misinformation is the most dangerous thing out there and, in my opinion, you have taken the hook, like and sinker. 

Bill Gates foundation is aiming to eradicate Polio, Malaria, reduce HIV infections and prolong life of those infected.

I believe that polio

Fri, 2020-12-04 16:17

I believe that polio vaccination has been widely successful. It is also a disease which affected my family member some 70 years ago with life long effect. And I have been vaccinated against it.
But Gates' involvement with it is quite worrying. One example is him (his foundation) taking over Indian immunology governing body NTAGI. With its blessing he rolled out a massive oral polio vaccine program, which over the years paralysed some 490000 children. Eventually he was "asked" by Indian government to cease his involvement there. And the cases of paralysis dropped with ceasing the program.  Oral polio vaccine is using weakened live virus. And it is much cheaper than the injected vaccine with a dead virus used in developed word and which most of us probably got.
Things got as bad, that there are reports from countries, where the weakened strain of polio gained power again and caused more cases than a wild polio virus.
I am not sure what his true motivation is. Might be money. He is in a business of "creating a healthy market for vaccination".  He even came up with a term "decade of vaccination". Despite spending 100's of millions on this, his net worth doubled in last 10 years.
Might be his depopulation plan. Just go on his TED talk. "If we do a really good job with a vaccine, we can lower the population by 10%"
Or it might be control. That word is popping up more and more everywhere.
Who knows.

 Australia’s medicines

Thu, 2020-12-03 20:47

 Australia’s medicines regulator will wait for more data before approving a coronavirus vaccine despite the UK’s move to start delivering jabs from next week.

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has been given a fast-tracked green light to supply its vaccine, with the most vulnerable people to receive the first doses.

Therapeutic Goods Administration head Professor John Skerritt said it was important to note Britain’s decision was an emergency authorisation rather than full approval.

 

RELATED:

UK APPROVES PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE AND WILL ROLL OUT EARLY NEXT WEEK

MARK MCGOWAN WON’T RULE OUT DELAY ON WA BORDER OPENING AFTER NSW CASE

Australian law does not allow for such an authorisation.

“The situation is very much an emergency in the UK and I can understand totally why they are moving earlier, even with the greater uncertainty,” Prof Skerritt told the ABC.

He said while the British would know less about potential adverse side effects, the soaring death toll meant the country was moving faster.

It’s a three-horse race at the moment and any one of those three companies could be the first one to get to the finishing line.

The Australian government is hoping for a March rollout of the first vaccine after regulatory approval is granted.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he had great confidence in the TGA to assess vaccine safety.

“It is about getting the balance right on the timing and there’s an understandable urgency about that,” he told reporters in Canberra.

“But at the same time, on the health requirements, which are sacrosanct, and we don’t cut any corners on that.”

He said Australia would have a “front row seat” on the UK’s experience with the Pfizer vaccine.

 I wonder if we'll have a choice Mike. From my understanding the Phizer vaccine is very unstable in the fact that it has to be transported and stored  at -70 degrees so that presents a problem in itself and two shots required 3 weeks apart. The Oxford vax although not as effective is a lot more stable.

having watched a few science docos on pandemics and the vaccine creation processes and difficulites with it being created etc im cautious these first editions for approval will be the silver bullet everyone wants

Same here, Im not anti vaccine, but this whole 'Pandemic' wreaks of high level collusion. What does Covid actually do to you? Death rates are miniscule in comparison to infection rate, and most of them were the elderly that are generally susceptible to respiratory conditions. The rate of deaths in the elderly through conditions such as pneumonia has been the lowest it has been in decades. Perhaps people dying 'with ' Covid are being categorized as dying 'from' covid. Who knows, time will tell.

Pneumonia is generally a secondary infection and our social distancing and increased hygeine mean we have contracted less non Covid viruses this year thus less pneumonia.

This isn't the first pandemic of this nature and I believe modern day society is in shock that something like this could occur with all of our technology/medical advances and are looking for a scapegoat.... Bill Gates the World Order Emperor who is feeding us mind controlling substances through flouride, vaccines and chem trails and programming us via 5G to stop us walking to the edge of the earth and meeting the aliens who built the pyramids and is raking in cash from Govt loans to fund their lockdowns.

 Let's put up the whole story

Wed, 2020-12-09 20:02

 Let's put up the whole story eh Unc 

People with a history of significant allergic reactions should not have the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid jab, regulators say.

It came after two NHS workers had allergic reactions on Tuesday.

The advice applies to those who have had reactions to medicines, food or vaccines, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said.

The two people had a reaction shortly after having the new jab, had treatment and are both fine now.

They are understood to have had an anaphylactoid reaction - much milder than anaphylaxis - which tends to involve a skin rash, breathlessness and sometimes a drop in blood pressure.

Both NHS workers have a history of serious allergies and carry adrenalin pens around with them.

Professor Stephen Powis, medical director for the NHS in England, said both individuals are recovering well.

"As is common with new vaccines, the MHRA have advised on a precautionary basis that people with a significant history of allergic reactions do not receive this vaccination after two people with a history of significant allergic reactions responded adversely," he said.

 Drug development and vaccine

Thu, 2020-12-10 08:03

 Drug development and vaccine development does take time -- normally. And that in the past has purely been due to $$$.

It cost heaps and heaps to develop these drugs and vaccines. Each stage in the USUAL time takes as much effort to get the $$ to pay and hence the average development time of 5-10yrs. 

This is not the current case, hence the absolute remarkable pace, because money is not a problem as various government are pouring this in bucket loads. There is thus no funding pauses between stages of development.

As a front line health worker no doubt I would be in line near the top of the pile, and I work in a GP Respiratory Clinic which is considered high risk.

I will get it as soon as it is available, and as a scientific person I have extensively read about the progress of these vaccines on a daily basis. It is warp speed but no stone is uncrossed as far as I have read. Companies and Government are to scared to give fuel to anti-vaxers which could impact other vaccines established aswel.

Not enough time and

Thu, 2020-12-10 10:46

Not enough time and information available on testing, so no vaccine for me just yet, as simple as that.
Do I trust big pharma, no
Do I trust our government, no
Do I trust anyone else's opinion on here, no, regardless of your profession or google prowess.
The only informed decision I will make will be my own in due time.

Spot on NN, the blind faith that we're all expected to embrace is mind numbing.
