The new C19 mRNA booster – Moderna price 130 bucks per dose – estimated to PREVENT around 50 hospitalizations per million doses – mRNA injections CAUSE 1,000 to 1,500 SERIOUS events per million doses
Dr John Campbell has torn the CDC/FDA clowns a new one with a devastating video.
Keep in mind that the definitions of SERIOUS events are those that are life threatening and SEVERS events are those that are life altering. The duration of both is not defined in terms of being temporary or permanent.
Dr Campbell is bewildered updated C19 vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months and older and will be available by the end of this week.
A first and curious point is that the CDC advisory does not include the mantra “save and effective”. Now why would that be? An oversight or an admission?
There is no representation on the CDC advisory of whether the new booster is safer than the old injections. Keep in mind that the 1,000 and 1,500 serious adverse event numbers per million doses are historic numbers. The CDC/FDA provided no adverse event data for the new booster.
I set out below the age groups where the CDC has provided estimates of hospitalizations and deaths for each million doses administered.
If you are seriously considering getting the new booster after looking at the table above, you should seek psychiatric help – as should the CDC/FDA.
It may be that the CDC disclosure document has more demographic granularity somewhere, though Dr Campbell could not find it.
In any event, here are Dr Campbell’s cliff notes:
“‘Safe and effective’
Estimated hospitalizations prevented per 1,000,000 vaccine doses
12 -17 years 19-95 hospitalizations, 5-19 ICU admissions, and perhaps one death.
5 – 11 years 16 hospitalizations, (based on Spring 2023 data)
18 – 49 years 75 hospitalizations, (based on Spring 2023 data)
Serious adverse events of special interest following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination in randomized trials in adults https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36055...
Pfizer vaccines excess risk of serious adverse events (Higher than placebo baseline)
10.1 per 10,000, 101 per 100,000, 1,010 per 1,000,000
Moderna vaccines excess risk of serious adverse events, (Higher than placebo baseline)
15.1 per 10,000, 151 per 100,000, 1,510 per 1,000,000
In Western Australia https://www.health.wa.gov.au/~/media/...
Total AEFI rate following a COVID-19 vaccine 264.1 per 100,000 doses 2,641 per 1,000,000 doses
March 22 Moderna chief executive defended the company's plan to quadruple the price of its COVID-19 vaccine, $130 per dose
Pfizer last year suggested $110 to $130 per dose.
From FDA to MHRA: are drug regulators for hire?
Money derived from Industry
US Food and Drug Administration, $3,416,000,000 (2022)
The revolving door - FDA, nine out of 10 of its past commissioners, 2006 to 2019 went on to secure roles linked with pharmaceutical companies
2005 UK, House of Commons’ health committee - Industry funding could lead MHRA, to “lose sight of the need to protect and promote public health above all else as it seeks to win fee income from the companies.”
BMJ investigation (2022) - We found that industry money permeates the globe’s leading regulators, raising questions about their independence
Sociologist Donald Light, Rowan University, New Jersey - “Like the FDA, the TGA was founded to be an independent institute. However, being largely funded by fees from the companies whose products it is charged to evaluate is a fundamental conflict of interest, and a prime example of institutional corruption.”
It is no longer possible for doctors and patients to receive unbiased, rigorous evaluations from drug regulators.
FDA - “It’s the opposite of having a trustworthy organisation independently and rigorously assessing medicines. They’re not rigorous, they’re not independent, they are selective, and they withhold data. Doctors and patients must appreciate how deeply and extensively drug regulators can’t be trusted so long as they are captured by industry funding.”
Revisiting financial conflicts of interest in FDA advisory committees
Large study, FDA advisory committee members over 15 years, those with financial interests solely in the sponsoring firm were more likely to vote in favour of the sponsor’s product. (not really, he just doesn’t want to be removed from YouTube!) how the CDC/FDA can recommend injections for 6 months of age and up and yet the UK regulator says 65 years old and up.
