Recently (Sept 12), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new recommendations, advising “updated” COVID-19 vaccines for everyone aged six months and older.
This announcement raised alarm bells, as the CDC’s guidance starkly contrasts with other countries like the UK, where Autumn booster vaccinations are recommended for those over 65 years old — a 64.5-year difference.
So, what gives? Why is the CDC recommending new booster shots for babies when other countries are advising them for senior citizens only?
Well, it seems the “experts” at the CDC are unable/unwilling to do basic math.
According to the CDC’s own website, a million vaccine doses would prevent between 19 to 95 hospitalizations, 5 to 19 ICU admissions, and possibly one death for 12 to 17-year-olds.
The recommendation becomes more baffling for 5 to 11-year-olds, where an estimated 16 to 76 hospitalizations would be prevented for every million doses given.
Even for 18 to 49-year-olds, a million doses would only prevent an estimated 75 hospitalizations based on Spring data.
But how many serious adverse events are we causing per million doses?
The numbers are horrifying. Dr. John Campbell took the CDC’s estimations for hospitalizations and ICU visits prevented by the COVID shots, and compared them to the serious adverse event rate per one million doses, based on Dr. Joseph Fraiman and colleagues’ re-analysis of the Pfizer and Moderna clinical trials.
This is what he found:
For every million doses administered, Pfizer’s data revealed an additional 1,000 incidents of serious adverse events of special interest compared to the placebo group.
The situation appears even more concerning with Moderna; their data indicated that every million doses resulted in 1,500 additional serious adverse events of special interest.
So, the CDC is recommending a shot that causes 1,000 serious adverse events or more per million doses to save maybe one life (12-17 age group).
“Now, if that mathematics makes any sense to you, do let me know because I just don’t know where the thinking is coming from here,” remarked Dr. Campbell. “The main point in medicine is about the individual. It’s the balance of risks for the individual. And this data to me indicates that it’s not there.”
The CDC is one of the most prominent health agencies in the world.
How can an agency of such caliber advocate for a vaccine regimen that, in the 12-17 age group, may result in 1,000 serious adverse events or more for the prevention of merely 19 to 95 hospitalizations?
I believe top-level minds don’t make such catastrophic errors consistently, over a three-year period, unless they are incentivized to do so. So, if there was any doubt that there was an intent to harm, there is no doubt anymore.
