As of last week, almost no one in Australia is eligible for the fifth dose. Even the old and vulnerable are not being told to get another dose. This is the end of two years of non-stop push.
“Access to antivirals is more important” say the experts for the first time, and it appears people practically need to be a transplant patient or on chemo to be able to get jab number five …
They are effectively saying that the boosters are useless, or even worse than useless, without having the honesty to say so. …
The mantra lines are all the same, they’ve just swapped the word vaccine for antiviral. Now we’re bragging that “Australians have one of the best antiviral uptakes in the world”. (As if the hapless punters in the streets have much say in their prescriptions, were racing to get there, and even knew there was a race?). Are we proud of our druggieness now, or our obedience?
At no point do they say ATAGI have decided the fourth dose is dangerous to young adults, instead someone who used to work there has conveniently leaked out that the “under 30s are unlikely to get approval”. It’s as if the under thirties are champing at the bit to get more doses and ATAGI is just being restrained and sensible, eh?
Finally the official sector in Australia is bowing to the reality we’ve been pointing out for two+ years: vaccines do more harm than good for nearly everyone (except the over-80 or immuno-compromised) and early treatment with anti-virals is a better strategy.
Now, if we could just get them to use an anti-viral like HCQ or ivermectin (at 10 cents per week) rather than the expensive big -pharma anti-virals like remdesivir ($3,000).
