Bravo that our H.D. is vaccinating the general public. Sansum giant clinic in Santa Barbara (28,000+ patients) just emailed it’s patients that it is still doing only it’s employees and F. R.’s, and cannot start age-related general innoculations yet, not a single one. . Bravo SLO H.D. and good speed moving down the age list qualification tiers.

I den want to do 100 million shots in 100 days. Based on this it will be spring 2022 before we reach St. Fauci’s “heard amenity” goal. Do the math: 350 million Americans at two shots each with a projected acceptance rate of 70% = 490 million shots to be given which means if all goes well 500 days from now we should have heard immunity. But keep in mind that long before we get to 500 days those who are getting shots now will need to be re-vaccinated. In truth, the cycle may never end.

Nice knowing you,A Beijing-based immunologist, who requested anonymity, told the Global Times on Friday that the world should suspend the use of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine represented by Pfizer, as this new technology has not proven safety in large-scale use or in preventing any infectious diseases.


Older people, especially those over 80, should not be recommended to receive any COVID-19 vaccine, he said. In a related report, Norwegian officials said 23 people had died in the country a short time after receiving their first dose of the vaccine. Of those deaths, 13 have so far been autopsied, with the results suggesting that common side effects may have contributed to severe reactions in frail, elderly people, according to the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

Now let’s debunk. Per Wikipedia:

The Global Times (simplified Chinese: 环球时报; traditional Chinese: 環球時報; pinyin: Huánqiú Shíbào) is a daily tabloid newspaper under the auspices of the Chinese Communist Party’s People’s Daily newspaper, commenting on international issues from a nationalistic perspective. The newspaper has spread unfounded conspiracy theories and disinformation related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

deepsea, you are a fellow traveler for CCP misinformation.

And to quote the Norway Today story:

“The reports may indicate that common side effects from mRNA vaccines, such as fever and nausea, may have led to deaths in some frail patients,” said chief physician Sigurd Hortemo of the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

As a result, both the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) and the Norwegian Medicines Agency have changed the coronary vaccination guide with new advice for this group.

“If you are very frail, you should probably not be vaccinated”, said subject director Steinar Madsen in the Norwegian Medicines Agency at a webinar on corona vaccine for journalists on Thursday.

He emphasized through NRK that these cases are rare, and that many thousands of frail people have been vaccinated without a fatal outcome.

No, the “liars”, you refer to, are those publications, blogs, etc. that take information out of context in order to support a slant. In this case the Global Times trying to promote the sales of the Chinese vaccine. And yes, I would take American media over CCP media as to a ‘purveyor of truth’.


derasmus

Oh great, the Chinese communist media machine told you something so it must be true.


News flash, the CCP are pathological liars because they are by definition, “totalitarian.” All totalitarian regimes are evil and cannot be trusted.
