So by now you’re probably aware, and definitely relieved to know, that the new Pfizer combination (bivalent) “booster” is coming our way, hopefully by Labor Day!! In this post I’m not going to go through all the data showing the apparent dangers of the vaccines; stuff like much higher rates of significant adverse events than we were told; stuff like deaths following pretty closely on the heels of vax introduction; stuff like this repeated vaccinating may be driving the virus to become more infectious and more dangerous; you know, things like that. Today we’ll just look at the “science” behind this new combination booster vaccine.
First, according to MedPage Today (my bold) “In an amendment to the emergency use authorizations (EUAs), both shots can be administered starting 2 months following a primary vaccination series or prior booster -- in people 12 and up for Pfizer's shot and in people 18 and up for Moderna's vaccine.” 2 MONTHS. First it was six months for a booster, then five, then three, now 2 MONTHS. Hey remember when crackpots like me were telling you last year that you would soon be a member of the vaccine of the month club? Not so crackpotty now, am I? By the way, in case you’re interested, Pfizer tells us “The bivalent vaccine (Original and Omicron BA.1) booster dose was administered 4.7 to 11.5 months (median 6.3 months) after the first booster dose.” So Pfizer “tested” this vaccine in people about SIX MONTHS after their last shot, but now you can get yours just TWO MONTHS after your last shot. How do we “know” it’s “safe” to administer this brand new “bivalent” mRNA vaccine just 2 MONTHS after your last? Well, we don’t. But don’t worry, just follow the “science”!
And while we’re at it, let’s unpack this “bivalent” vaccine a bit. You’ll notice Pfizer tells us the vaccine they tested contained “Original and Omicron BA.1”. Again, MedPage tells us “Support for the vaccines' efficacy came in the form of immunogenicity data. The studies for each vaccine involved about 600 fully vaccinated adults who had already received a booster shot as well. Immune responses to BA.1 were superior in individuals receiving either of the companies' bivalent vaccines -- which included components targeting the ancestral strain as well as Omicron BA.1 -- compared to those that received the original monovalent boosters targeting only the original strain.” So this new vaccine, which will DEFINITELY work, was tested on a whole 600 people and the tests were conducted using a substance containing the original “ancestral strain” which has been extinct for the better part of two years, and Omicron BA.1, which is also now extinct. And the “proven efficacy” comes in the form of this combo vax being better than the original vax, which is like saying a filtered cigarette is better than a non-filtered cigarette. Then they replaced BA.1 with BA.4/BA.5, tested it on mice, not people, and abracadabra, a new vaccine to save the world!! Well at least they tested it on thousands of mice to see if it was “safe”. Oh wait: “In eight mice, Pfizer’s bivalent booster generated a 2.6-fold increase in neutralizing antibody levels against the BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants, compared with the companies’ current booster…” But don’t worry, “the agency said it considers such data as "relevant and supportive" of the newer BA.4/BA.5-targeted vaccines.” So there’s that. And by the way, what happens when the next "new variant"shows up? Well I guess we'll just jab you again. See how that works.
Also, “Safety data for Wednesday's authorization were derived from studies on the BA.1-targeting bivalent vaccines…in 600 adults 55 and older for Pfizer's." Yet the vaccine has been approved for kids as young as 12. SCIENCE!
Even Paul Offit, a very pro-vax doctor who actually holds patents on a vaccine says: “‘I fear this vaccine is being oversold,’ said Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, in an interview. ‘We have data in mice. We need human data. I don’t think that’s asking too much.’” And “Some scientists, such as Dr. Paul Offit of the University of Pennsylvania, say that’s not good enough. They say the new COVID booster may not work as well as the mouse data suggests – and want proof that it offers significant clinical improvement over the current booster.” Details, details...
But for you particularly nutty parents, no worries; you see “Pfizer and BioNTech are planning to file for authorization of an omicron-targeting vaccine for children 5 through 11 years of age in early October, according to a separate statement from the companies. They’re preparing an application for a similar vaccine in children 6 months through 4 years old.” So just be patient. You’re chance to inject Junior with a substance meant to protect him against a virus which poses ZERO risk which doesn't work but might damage his heart or reduce his ability to have children someday (or who knows what else; literally NOBODY knows) that has been tested on eight whole mice is on the way. Patience. Besides, Pfizer needs more money for Christmas bonuses.
And in case you were thinking about getting Moderna instead of Pfizer:
Probably not so much. And these numbers are for men under 40. It is probably significantly worse for young men between say 18 and 22 – you know, college kids, who are being forced to get these shots for no good reason at all. If your child's college “requires” a booster, I suggest you fight like hell and say no. You might even want to withdraw him from that school. It is not out of the realm of possibility that his life might literally depend on it.
