Data from UK, >40yo vaxxed twice as likely to get infected than unvaxxed
For the members who love to tear apart data, be interested to hear your opinions.
Article with lots of tables/data from the UK health authorities that seems to indicate clearly being vaxxed has no benefit for the young and is derogatory for the 40yos+.
The latest Public Health England (PHE) Vaccine Surveillance report was released on Thursday, meaning we can update our estimates of unadjusted vaccine effectiveness from real-world data.
As before, the report itself states this is “not the most appropriate method” to assess vaccine effectiveness as it is not adjusted for various confounders (and they do not provide the data that would allow such adjustments to be made). ‘Fact-checking’ website Full Fact (funded by Big Tech) are currently trying to censor the Daily Sceptic because, they claim, this means it is ‘incorrect’ to use the data in the report to calculate vaccine effectiveness. This is not true, however: regardless of what PHE deems to be the “most appropriate method”, vaccine effectiveness is defined as the reduction in the proportion of infections in the vaccinated group compared to the unvaccinated group, and it is perfectly acceptable to estimate it from population data, as long as any limitations in the data are acknowledged. [That’s literally how the vaccine makers and the Vaccine Taliban calculate effectiveness but suddenly the same calculation is “incorrect” when the result goes against them.]
Note that unvaccinated here means actually unvaccinated, not partially vaccinated or post-jab. Hospitalisation means “cases presenting to emergency care (within 28 days of a positive specimen) resulting in an overnight inpatient admission”….
Strikingly, the (unadjusted) vaccine effectiveness (VE) in over-18s continues to drop. For those in their 40s it hits nearly minus-86% this week, down from minus-66% in last week’s report.
This means the double-vaccinated in their 40s are now getting on for being almost twice as likely to be infected as the unvaccinated of the same age.
Those in their 50s, 60s and 70s have similarly super-low VE estimates, while the unadjusted VE for those in their 30s goes negative for the first time, having been dropping for some weeks. For the under-18s, on the other hand – which is the group currently being vaccinated – it actually went up, from 84% to 88%.
Encourage everyone to go to the original article and read the whole thing. Awaiting analysis.
The UK media initially spun that the jab would protect others. As that narrative has collapsed, they are now focusing on the alleged reduction in serious illness (not counting jab injury). The Geert Vanden Bossche hypothesis would indicate that the jab has turned the UK into a variant-making factory.
if the ‘delta variant’ is in fact the vaccine itself, then it would make sense that the vaccinated would be sicker than the unvaccinated.
The delta variant was around in late 2020. How could it be related to the jab if it pre-existed
“The delta variant was around in late 2020. How could it be related to the jab if it pre-existed”
They were serval, larger trials going on around the world at the time, where many of the new variants appeared – like the UK & South Africa.
