Vaccine effectiveness drops as it does not allow for the omicron variant
Omicron slices through vaccine protection as booster effect starts to wear off

The latest Vaccine Surveillance report from the UKHSA shows a sharp drop in unadjusted vaccine effectiveness against infection (calculated from the raw infection rate data) in 18-29 year-olds, down to minus-75% in the month ending December 19th, from minus-10% the previous week.

Unadjusted vaccine effectiveness fell in all age groups this week, particularly sharply in 30-39 year-olds, where it hit minus-98%. In 40-49 year-olds it fell to minus-131%. Negative vaccine effectiveness means the vaccinated are more likely to be infected than the unvaccinated. A vaccine effectiveness of minus-100% means the vaccinated are twice as likely to be infected as the unvaccinated.

Comment: Nothing that the "fringe" doctors and researchers haven't been warning about for the last year.

"A half truth is a whole lie": The omicron variant, cross-reactive immunity, and the manufactured illusion of an unprecedented virus

A French virologist spells it out:
French virologist and Nobel Prize winner Luc Montagnier called mass vaccination against the coronavirus during the pandemic "unthinkable" and a historical blunder that is "creating the variants" and leading to deaths from the disease, LifeSite News reported.

"It's an enormous mistake, isn't it? A scientific error as well as a medical error. It is an unacceptable mistake," Montagnier said in an interview translated and published by the RAIR Foundation US.

"The history books will show that because it is the vaccination that is creating the variants," the report said.

Many epidemiologists know it and are "silent" about the problem known as "antibody-dependent enhancement," Montagnier said.

"It is the antibodies produced by the virus that enable an infection to become stronger," he said in an interview with Pierre Barnerias of Hold-Up Media earlier this month.

While variants of viruses can occur naturally, Montagnier said that vaccination is driving the process. "What does the virus do? Does it die or find another solution?

"It is clear that the new variants are created by antibody-mediated selection due to the vaccination."

Vaccinating during a pandemic is "unthinkable" and is causing deaths, the winner of the 2008 Nobel Prize for Medicine said.

The nation's recent lockdown policies and mask mandates will create a generation of children who exhibit lower IQs and signs of social brain damage, according to a clinical psychiatrist for children and adolescents.

Dr. Mark McDonald cited an Aug. 11 study by Brown University (pdf) that found that "children born during the pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic," during an interview with host Cindy Drukier on a Dec. 25 episode of NTD's "The Nation Speaks." NTD is a sister media outlet of The Epoch Times.


The masks, "Zoom schools," and lockdown mandates have led to "deprivation overall, of social contact, [of] not being able to see faces, being stuck at home all day long, [and this] has actually caused brain damage to the youngsters," he said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci takes part in a meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris and other members of the White House COVID-19 Response Team on developments related to the Omicron COVID-19 variant from the State Dining Room at the White House in Washington, U.S., December 9, 2021.
Cases of Covid-19 are likely going to keep surging as the omicron variant rapidly spreads across the globe, U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday.

"Every day it goes up and up. The last weekly average was about 150,000 and it likely will go much higher," Fauci said on ABC's "This Week."

As of Thursday, before the holiday weekend disrupted Covid trackers, the U.S. had reported more than 51 million total cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The U.S. also topped 800,000 total deaths from the disease in mid-December.

Comment: They continue to try to come up with ways to make what is essentially a cold sound scary.

Individuals with the Omicron variant of COVID-19 are 80% less likely to end up hospitalized than those with prior strains of the virus, according to a new study from South Africa.

The pre-print study from the National Institute for Communicable Diseases found that Omicron has a 70% less risk of severe disease, although once a patient is hospitalized the risk of severe disease is the same as earlier strains. Scientists compared data on recent Omicron infections to Delta infections between April and November.


Comment: Given that the previous variants caused severe illness in a very small percentage of people, and the Omicron is 80% less than that, it sounds like what we're really dealing with is a common cold. And yet, governments around the world are only too eager to being lockdowns and more mandates.

FDA releases more data on "adverse reactions" to Pfizer vaccine

pfizer
As the FDA prepares to approve Pfizer's new pill for treating high-risk patients infected with COVID, more information about dangerous side effects tied to its vaccine are coming to light.

Just yesterday, we reported another death tied to the vaccine in New Zealand. Now, documents released by the FDA reveal that drugmaker Pfizer recorded nearly 160K adverse reactions to its COVID vaccine in the initial months of its rollout.

The data were obtained by a group of doctors, professors, and journalists calling themselves Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency. They filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the FDA asking for their release. And the first tranche of documents revealed that, as of February 2021, when Pfizer's shot was being rolled out worldwide on an emergency basis, the drugmaker had compiled more than 42K case reports detailing nearly 160K individual adverse reactions to the vaccine.

MIT scientist Stephanie Seneff's paper,1 "Worse Than the Disease: Reviewing Some Possible Unintended Consequences of mRNA Vaccines Against COVID-19," published in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice and Research in collaboration with Dr. Greg Nigh, is still one of the best, most comprehensive descriptions of the many possible unintended consequences of the mRNA gene transfer technologies incorrectly referred to as "COVID vaccines."

December 9, 2021, their paper was reprinted in the Townsend Letter, the Examiner of Alternative Medicine.2 Seneff, Ph.D., a senior research scientist at MIT who has been conducting research at MIT for over five decades, has spent a large portion of her career investigating the hazards and mechanisms of action of glyphosate.

Her attention was diverted to the science of mRNA gene transfer technologies in early 2020, when Operation Warp Speed was announced. As noted in her paper, many factors that lacked precedent, yet were being implemented at breakneck speed, included:
  1. The first-ever use of PEG in an injection
  2. The first-ever use of mRNA gene transfer technology against an infectious agent
  3. The first-ever "vaccine" to make no clear claims about reducing infection, transmissibility or death
  4. The first-ever coronavirus vaccine ever tested on humans (and previous coronavirus vaccines all failed due to antibody-dependent enhancement, a condition in which the antibodies actually facilitate infection rather than defend against it)
  5. The first-ever use of genetically modified polynucleotides in the general population

Covid vaccines could cause menstrual changes - study

Young women are experiencing changes in their periods, including heavier bleeding, after receiving both first and second anti-coronavirus shots, a study by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) suggests.

Women aged between 18 and 30 who took part in a large population study conducted by NIPH this year reported an increase in the incidence of menstrual changes. "Many women reported heavier periods than normal after the first and second vaccine dose," said the study released this week.

While some 7.6% of participants experienced heavier bleeding before vaccination, the number of women reporting heavier periods after the first dose increased to 13.6%. After the second dose, it further grew to 15.3%.

Changes after the first dose are "transient," according to the study, which claims bleeding returned to normal levels around two to three months after the jab. However, among those women who experienced changes after the first shot, almost two out of three reported it again after the second dose.

'Super Immunity': Pandemic collapses into self-parody

Claims that "breakthrough infections" might be good for you are hilariously desperate.

The Covid19 "vaccines" don't work. They've admitted it, and now they're seriously trying to tell us it's actually a good thing.

What "working" really means when your pandemic is nothing but wave after wave of meaningless positive tests and weasel-worded changes to the meaning of "cause of death", is a different discussion for another time.

Indeed, whether they were ever meant to work, what they are actually for and why the establishment needs to push them so hard, are interesting questions for a future article.

For now, let us confine ourselves to Big Pharma's stated intention: The "vaccines" are allegedly meant to stop the spread of "Covid19". They don't do it.

The "vaccines" are not even true vaccines by the traditional definition. People who have been "vaccinated" still get infected, and can still spread the infection to other people.

Such infections are called "breakthrough cases", and their existence has run a familiar course in the media.

WHO says vaccine booster programs will PROLONG Covid crisis: 'No country can boost its way out of the pandemic'

World Health Organization officials on Wednesday criticized blanket Covid-19 vaccine booster programs as poor countries struggle to obtain initial doses, warning that the unequal access to immunizations could lead to more mutated variants that drag out the crisis.

"Blanket booster programs are likely to prolong the pandemic, rather than ending it, by diverting supply to countries that already have high levels of vaccination coverage, giving the virus more opportunity to spread and mutate," WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a news briefing.

The comments from the WHO come as health officials in the U.S. promote vaccine booster shots for all residents over the age of 16 amid a surge in Covid cases driven by the omicron strain. Israel on Tuesday announced it would offer a fourth dose of Covid-19 vaccines to people older than 60.

Stillbirths & deaths of newborns have hit "critical levels" and cases of ovarian cancer are at an all time high - Are the Covid-19 vaccines to blame?

vaccine baby
Data available from Public Health Scotland shows that cases of ovarian cancer in 2021 are much higher than the 2017-2019 average, and deaths of new-born babies have reached the upper warning threshold indicating factors beyond random variation may have contributed to the deaths.

With nearly
  • 40,000 menstrual disorders being reported as adverse reactions to the Covid-19 vaccines,
  • Scientists warning of potential issues with the formulation of the Covid-19 injections leading to infertility,
  • Real-world data showing the rate of miscarriage following Covid-19 vaccination is as high as 82%,
  • and a confidential study showing the Covid-19 vaccine accumulates in the ovaries over time,
