The unscientific stupidity of vaccine passports.
It’s like COVID-19 is totally foreign to our supposed health experts. Clearly they bought into their own fairy tail that elimination was ever going to work and are now caught in a total cognitive dissonance on the efficacy of vaccines.
There is a plethora of evidence that can be garnered from locations such as Israel and the UK. Both of whom have excellent data collection, publications and reporting on what’s going on with their populations of vaccinate vs unvaccinated transmission.
Israel arrived at the same point we are now at quite some time ago and the latest studies backed by a Harvard medical professor makes the strongest case yet that vaccine passports don’t work.
“Vaccine passports are morally dubious for many reasons, not the least of which is that freedom of movement is a basic human right. However, vaccine passports become even more senseless in light of the new findings out of Israel and revelations from the CDC, some say.
Harvard Medical School professor Martin Kulldorff said research showing that natural immunity offers exponentially more protection than vaccines means vaccine passports are both unscientific and discriminatory, since they disproportionately affect working class individuals.”
Israel has gone down the Pfizer route and is now working on giving booster shots as a solution to slowing down infections.
You now are no longer considered fully vaccinated with two jabs. Many Israelis are getting frustrated as vaccine passports didn’t that didn’t work are now no longer valid until they get another jab, at least.
Turns out the vaccinated pass on the virus as well as anyone else.
Moreover, CDC research shows that vaccinated individuals still get infected with COVID-19 and carry just as much of the virus in their throat and nasal passage as unvaccinated individuals
“High viral loads suggest an increased risk of transmission and raised concern that, unlike with other variants, vaccinated people infected with Delta can transmit the virus,” CDC Rochelle Director Walensky noted following a Cape Cod outbreak that included mostly vaccinated individuals.
These data suggest that vaccinated individuals are still spreading the virus much like unvaccinated individuals.
In the UK the spreaders ate the vaccinated at much higher rates that the unvaccinated.
The outcomes are better for the vaccinated when comparing hospitalisations and death, but the fact of the matter is vaccine passports are meant to be “protecting the vaccinated from the unvaccinated” according to Ardern.
Well here is data from the UK and check out the spreaders highlighted in red. This is on a per 100,000 basis which accounts for the proportional differences between the vaccinated and unvaccinated in the community.
So we are destined to go down the same track. Blame and shame the unvaccinated until the vaccinated have spread so much of the virus someone wakes up and says, oops that didn’t work.
The definition of stupidity is doing the same thing others did and expecting that somehow you will do the same thing and get a different result.
But it seems this has never been about the health outcomes of individuals. It’s purely to hide the fact we are woefully underprepared and making the unvaccinated the scapegoat, for now.
Who will be next?
