More evidence that the FDA/CDC is corrupt and not fit for purpose: “Boosted People More Likely Than Unvaccinated to Be Infected: Study”

“Understanding how vaccination and natural immunity influence COVID-19 infection rates is crucial, especially in high-density congregate settings such as prisons, to inform public health strategies.”
Our results indicate that the infection rates in the bivalent-vaccinated and entirely unvaccinated groups are 3.24% (95% confidence interval (CI): 3.06-3.42%) and 2.72% (CI: 2.50-2.94%), respectively, with an absolute risk difference of only 0.52%.
When the data were filtered for those aged 50 and above, the infection rates were 4.07% (CI: 3.77-4.37%) and 3.1% (CI: 2.46-3.74%), respectively, revealing a mere 0.97% absolute risk difference. Among those aged 65 and above, the infection rates were 6.45% (CI: 5.74-7.16%) and 4.5% (CI: 2.57-6.43%), respectively, with an absolute risk difference of 1.95%.”
Note the absolute risk difference of around 0.5% AND IS NEGATIVE overall, worsening for the older age groups to around 1% and 2%.
The relative risk reduction (extensively used in the clinical trials and by politicians/regulators) is ALSO NEGATIVE.
For the overall population, it is (2.72% - 3.24%) / 2.72% = MINUS 19%. Other older groups are far worse.
The Epoch Times covered the “vaccine” FAILURE here:
“People who received a new COVID-19 vaccine booster were more likely to contract COVID-19 than people who received no COVID-19 vaccine doses, according to a new study of prisons in California.
“Researchers analyzed data from 33 state prisons from January to July 2023 to try to assess the effectiveness of the bivalent shots, which were introduced in the fall of 2022.
Among 96,201 inmates with data on COVID-19 testing and vaccination, researchers identified 2,835 cases. They found that 1,187 of the cases were among people who had received a bivalent vaccine, versus just 568 cases among the unvaccinated.”
“Among inmates at least 65 years old, the infection rate was 6.4 percent among the vaccinated and 4.5 percent among those who had not received a shot. Among inmates at least 50 years old, the rates were 4 percent and 3 percent, respectively.”
So, there is that! Not only did the old boosters CAUSE 100 – 150 times more hospitalizations than the SARS-COV2 variants, they caused more infections.
Of course, to the CDC/FDA this cannot and must not stand in the way of their bribes from big pharma. The spice must flow, after all!
