UK's minimum gap for Covid booster jabs to be halved to three months

The UK's minimum gap for Covid booster jabs will be halved from six months to three, after the government accepted advice from its vaccines watchdog to speed up the programme to limit the spread of the Omicron variant.

The health secretary, Sajid Javid, confirmed that all adults would be offered the jab, after the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) announced that the waiting time was being cut for all adults, with priority for booking to be decided by the NHS.

The watchdog said adults aged 18 to 39 should be offered booster jabs and recommended cutting the gap between second and third doses from at least six months to at least three months. Speaking in the Commons soon afterwards, Javid said the rollout would be staggered by age group, with older people invited for boosters first.

The JCVI advised that severely immunocompromised people should be eligible for boosters three months after their primary course of three vaccinations. The committee also said 12- to 15-year-olds should be able to get their second Covid jabs for the first time.

"I have accepted this advice in full," Javid told MPs, also outlining previously announced measures to try to curb the spread of Omicron, including travel restrictions, mandatory self-isolation for close contacts of people who test positive for the variant, and mandatory masks on public transport and in shops in England.

The number of confirmed cases of the Omicron variant in the UK had reached 11, he said, with two more detected in England.

Comment: Preliminary findings: Omicron variant is proving to be a non-starter.

Big tech and the woke military censor critics for attacking pedophiles

Big Tech and America's woke military care deeply for the feelings of America's child molesters.

At least this is what my recent suspension from Twitter would suggest. Last Thursday, Jack Dorsey and company suspended me for seven days for suggesting that if pedophiles received the death penalty, there would be fewer incidents of child abuse.

Comment: Isn't censorship a passive form of attack?

Los Angeles: Smash and Grab
Last week a string of "smash and grab" robberies were staged in several locations in California over the Thanksgiving holiday. In Los Angeles, those that were arrested were freed without bail as part of the city's "zero-bail" policy under District Attorney George Gascon.

The situation with organized theft in the state has been described as an ongoing spree that had shoppers changing their in-person shopping plans. High-end department stores, jewelry shops, and other retail establishments were targeted by groups of people who smashed windows and stole at will.
The Los Angeles Police Department arrested 14 alleged robbers connected to 11 store lootings in which "nearly $340,000" worth of goods were stolen, according to the Daily Mail. These suspects are back out on the streets again thanks to the city's "zero bail" policy.

A man has died at a caravan park in New South Wales, Australia. He is believed to have been a full-time carer for his wife and daughter, and had applied to travel with the family to reunite with his son in neighboring Queensland.

The 78-year-old man got stranded with the two women, aged 71 and 55 respectively, at a camp site in New South Wales (NSW) close to the Queensland state border. They were waiting for permission to travel and live with the man's son, who resides just 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the camp, the Courier Mail reported on Thursday.

Having been stuck there for around 14 weeks, the father suddenly died. Police have confirmed an elderly man's death at the site, and say an investigation has been launched.

Question

Social justice in medicine: What is happening to my profession?

Doctors, nurses, and other health care workers participate in a "White Coats for Black Lives" at the Queen of the Valley Hospital in West Covina, California, on June 11th, 2020.
Twenty-one years ago, I wrote a book called PC, M.D. How Political Correctness is Corrupting Medicine. One chapter explored "multicultural counseling," a form of therapy that encouraged white clinicians to ask themselves, "what responsibility do you hold for the racist oppressive and discriminating manner by which you personally and professionally deal with minorities?" Another chapter documented flaws in research studies purportedly showing that physicians, as a matter of routine, were racially biased against their patients. I devoted another chapter to the quest for social justice in the field of public health. In the epilogue, which I called "The Indoctrinologist Isn't In...Yet," I cautioned: "those who care about the culture and practice of medicine must be alert to the encroachment of political agendas."

Today, the Indoctrinologists are officially in. These health professionals argued early in the COVID pandemic that, if hospitals were forced to ration ventilators, they should ration based partly on minority status rather than exclusively by standard criteria, such as clinical need or prognosis. They urged vaccine priority for black Americans to compensate for "historical injustice." And 1,200 of them cheered, via open letter, the message of an epidemiologist from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health who told would-be marchers in the wake of George Floyd's murder that "the public health risks of not protesting to demand an end to systemic racism greatly exceed the harms of the virus." In each instance, the experts allowed their own moral commitments, not objective metrics of risk, to shape their advice.

Jeffrey Epstein's former housekeeper claims Ghislaine Maxwell was 'lady of the house'

Juan Alessi testified that Ghislaine Maxwell was the “lady of the house” in Florida.
Jeffrey Epstein's longtime housekeeper on Thursday testified that Ghislaine Maxwell was the "lady of the house" at the powerful pedophile's Florida mansion — and that countless young women hung out there, including two who appeared to be minors.

Juan Alessi dished about working for the late financier in Palm Beach for more than a decade, telling a Manhattan jury he saw "many, many, many females" in their 20s, who were at times topless, socializing with Epstein and Maxwell.

Alessi recalled seeing two girls who appeared to be minors over the course of his employment, which ended in 2002. He identified one of the two as "Jane" — a Maxwell accuser who testified earlier this week — describing her as a "striking, beautiful" girl who looked to be around 14 or 15.

Twitter slaps 'unsafe' label on American Heart Association mRNA vaccine warning

AHA twitter warning
Twitter has slapped an "unsafe link" warning on a study from the American Heart Association which found that mRNA vaccines dramatically increase risk of developing heart diseases from 11% to 25%.

As of this writing, when one clicks on the link in the below tweet...


Comment: Nine times out of ten (or maybe even 99 out of 100) labeling the American Heart Association as Fake News is a pretty safe bet. But the clown world irony here is that the one time they're actually providing information at least approaching truth, they get slapped with a 'unsafe' warning by Twitter. We suppose Twitter does consider the truth 'unsafe'.
