Long before the vast majority of Omicron cases were among the vaccinated, and before CDC Director Rochelle Walensky admitted in early October that the Covid-19 vaccine does not prevent transmission, public officials, MSM pundits, and coffee shop doctors across the land were spouting insidious propaganda designed to shame people into taking the jab. …
“Pandemic of the unvaccinated”:
The phrase implies that the vaccine was a panacea against Covid-19, and anyone who refused to take it wasn’t just part of the problem… but an irresponsible idiot who doesn’t follow the science.
In a late November note, The Lancet published a letter from Günter Kampf, a prolific researcher at the University of Griefswald in Germany.
In it, Kampf absolutely excoriates those calling this a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” amid “increasing evidence that vaccinated individuals continue to have a relevant role in transmission.” …
People who are vaccinated have a lower risk of severe disease but are still a relevant part of the pandemic. It is therefore wrong and dangerous to speak of a pandemic of the unvaccinated.
Historically, both the USA and Germany have engendered negative experiences by stigmatising parts of the population for their skin colour or religion.
I call on high-level officials and scientists to stop the inappropriate stigmatisation of unvaccinated people, who include our patients, colleagues, and other fellow citizens, and to put extra effort into bringing society together.
In people with covid, viral loads tend to be about as high in the vaccinated as in the unvaccinated. However, the vaccinated have protection against the symptoms, so they continue to be out and about, spreading the disease. The unvaccinated sick are more likely to feel ill and go home and isolate.
So your chances of catching covid from the vaccinated are higher? Yes, except in the honeymoon period of the first two to three months after vaccination, when the vaccinated are less likely to catch covid in the first place. Which is why the authorities are going to be urging everyone to get re-vaxxed every 3 – 6 months … forever?
Question: When it comes to covid, have the western bureaucrats ever made a decision that reduced the profits of big pharma?
I’m thinking also of how they ban or discourage ivermectin and HCQ. It’s as if public policy was being made by big pharma.
