CDC Director Rochelle Walensky caught COVID again, if you haven’t heard. And then she caught it again after being treated with Paxlovid, following the same pattern as her vaxed and boosted colleagues Joe Biden and Tony Fauci.
It’s too bad for Walensky, Biden, Fauci and others that they don’t live in Finland. That country’s health authorities are now recommending against the new bivalent booster shots for COVID, because as it turns out – and this could come as a surprise to Walensky, Biden, Fauci and others – but the bivalent booster shots don’t seem to actually work.
You might look at Walensky, Biden and Fauci getting double vaxed and double boosted and then STILL catching coronavirus and think, “Wait a second! There appears to be some medical evidence that this bivalent booster shot is garbage! How come Rochelle Walensky caught COVID less than a month after getting the bivalent booster?” But if you notice things like that, it probably just means you are a racist.
We’re not real big on medical evidence in this country, at least not at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In this country, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves booster shots for 5-year-olds when those shots haven’t even been tested on rodents, let alone humans. Evidence, Schmevidence!
Fortunately for some folks in other countries, their health authorities do look at medical evidence for setting public policy. Finland is one of those countries. Doctors with the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) in Finland, for example, are recommending against the new bivalent booster shots for working-aged people. That includes healthcare workers.
The reason for this is because Finland looks at medical evidence, including research that happens in other countries. We can’t even get the CDC to look at research from this country, let alone foreign countries. But Finland looked at a study conducted by doctors in Greece, which was just published in mid-October, and decided that it would be crazy to recommend the bivalent boosters for working-aged people.
For one thing, the additional shots seem to be weakening the immune response to COVID over time. The Greek study also found that getting double boosted with the bivalent booster shot only reduces hospitalization by 1.6 days, for the first four months after vaccination. People with two shots and a booster (which is now defined as “partially vaccinated”) in the Greek study lost an average of 9.7 days of work due to sickness from COVID. People with two shots and two boosters (“fully vaccinated”) spent an average of 8.1 days out of work with COVID.
The Greek study did not compare the number of sick days that unvaccinated people experience. They’re taking baby steps in Europe, but nobody wants to open THAT can of worms yet!
Anyway, Finland’s National Institute for Health and Welfare looked at that data and said it doesn’t seem to be worth giving all healthcare workers, not to mention all working-aged people, another booster shot when it A) does not prevent people from catching COVID, B) only “protects” against COVID for four months, and C) only prevents people from missing 1.6 days of work. You would have to give every worker three injections PER YEAR to provide the modest benefit of helping them not be sick from COVID (which they’re catching anyway) for 4.8 workdays. Rochelle Walensky didn’t even last a month after the bivalent booster before she got sick.
That would be crazy. And that’s exactly what Finnish health authorities are basing their public policy vaccine recommendations on. The more shots people have, the more it weakens their immune system. What’s the logical, science-based idea that this should give a rational person?
No more shots! If you stop giving people the shots, it doesn’t weaken the immune system as much!
Since they’re looking at vaccination policy and medical evidence, Finland’s strategy has now shifted. Their goal is to prevent serious illness and deaths from the ‘rona. Their goal is NOT to prevent infections. That’s part of the problem with so many Western nations that have gone vaccine crazy over COVID: They hope to prevent all infections. Finland has looked at all the evidence and concluded that eliminating infections simply isn’t possible.
To even reduce infections, Finland acknowledges that people would have to be vaxed three times per year. That would be crazy, so they’re simply not going to play along with Big Pharma anymore.
