AstraZeneca trial involving minors halted
“Just days after Australia’s deputy chief medical officer, Michael Kidd, acknowledged that there was likely a connection between rare blood clots and the COVID vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford, officials from the EMA, Europe’s top pharmaceutical regulator, have finally acknowledged the link.
The EMA declared at the conclusion of a hasty “safety review” last month that the benefits of the AstraZeneca jab (which is expected to to be the workhorse of the global vaccination rollout as Covax, the WHO/Gates Foundation program to vaccination developing countries, expects to heavily rely on the jab) far outweighed any risks, while saying it couldn’t definitively rule out the possibility that the blood clots and the vaccine might be connected. But researchers from Norway, Germany and elsewhere insisted they had found evidence of a connection.
“In my opinion, we can now say it, it is clear that there is an association (of the brain blood clots) with the vaccine. However, we still do not know what causes this reaction,” Marco Cavaleri, chair of the vaccine evaluation team at the EMA, told Italian daily Il Messagero.”
While the EMA refused to confirm the comments made by individual officials, WSJ reported Tuesday that the University of Oxford had decided to pause trials of the vaccine in the UK that involved children between the ages of 12 and 15.
I still don’t get it… The CDC says “ most children with COVID-19 have mild symptoms or they may have no symptoms at all” ….why on earth would someone vaccinate a child? The risk clearly outweighs the benefit.
Well, we already know that the vaccine has nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with CCP style control of the public. Start’em young. The earlier they are conditioned to regular vaccines, health passports, tracking and mandates, the earlier they can be chipped.
Asher Weintraub, 17, was happy to show off the new digital New York state “pass” that he downloaded to his smartphone, which, via a QR code, certified that he was vaccinated against Covid.
“I think it is a good thing, you don’t have to like provide all (sorts of) forms and documents each time,” he said, displaying his code at the entrance to one of the first indoor concerts in Manhattan since March 2020.
Got one young’un on board. Easier than carrying around a file folder I guess.
Children will be part of the reservoir that will keep c19 around and mutating, which may eventually lead to a c19 variant that is much more significant than the current outbreak, hence the need for children to be vaccinated as well.
There is evidence that this is already happening with the UK strain(b117) which is way more transmissible and more likely to bring serious illness to younger people.
It appears to me that the Pharma companies are working to deliver a safe and effective solution to a worldwide pandemic. Stopping bad batches and adjusting trials as they run into trouble, are evidence that they are trying to do the right things in their delivery of a solution.
This C19 pandemic response looks to me like the ‘normal’ corporate capitalism playbook that we LOVE here in the USA:
Give companies shit tons of money and they will develop the miracle drug solution. Which they have done. Then lets just ignore and downplay the almost free solutions like wellness, vitd, ivm and etc as there is no money to be made here.
If the pandemic morphs and continues, pharma can then turn the drug ( vaccine in this case) into a yearly revenue stream. In the corp healthcare world, a partially vaccinated population, and with no vitd and no IVM is actually good for business, so it wont fight as hard as it could to eliminate C19 entirely. For example. Take a long time to prove out IVM. Dont let countries make the Vac off patent. These type of items will likely ensure that C19 become endemic.
If we actually want to drive C19 out of existence, then we want an all out assault with IVM and vaccine ( IVM first, followed by VAC) is the way to overcome the headstart that C19 has at the moment.
