Given that these shots were never tested in people over age 65 and given that immunity wanes with aging and given that you need a robust immune system to mount an antibody response to real vaccination, it is beyond me why anyone ever got the idea of not only giving it to the elderly but in prioritizing them. That was my first clue that this was being done to kill people - starting with the elderly. And I still have a hard time figuring out why anyone would recommend we stop giving it to those under age 50 as opposed to STOP GIVING IT TO EVERYONE. I have been a doctor for 45 years an know of no instance in which a drug was prioritized to the very population of people on whom it was NOT tested??!!???

I can hardly like this article enough.

But please don't call the mask/lockdown/vax-'em-all fascists "liberal." Those who insisted on suffocating and injecting others against their will are about as far from liberalism as one can be. Because DeSantis respects individual choices in healthcare, he is the true liberal, in the archaic sense of the word, much as Republicans would cringe to have that word applied to one of their own.

He is the best governor of my lifetime and never have I been happier or more thankful to live in Florida than I have been the last 3 years.

Great article and best governor in the US for Covid and many other reasons. He also picked a good surgeon general who was the one there following the science and giving the governor the right input.

Likewise, Trump looks like a little dog yapping at a doberman when he goes after DeSantis. He was a good president for the most part, but the best thing he could do now is hand the baton to Ron.

DeSantis committed the ultimate crime, he did not listen to Science, the CDC or the left biased media about covid. He did not join the panic. He thought rationally and worked with his own experts in FL, including Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo. They studied risk/benefit and decided the risks associated with the vaccine outweighed the benefits for children. This was a perfectly valid procedure to assess risk BEFORE covid came along. Vanity Fair, Fauci, Wollensky, the WHO, and thousands of virologists decreed that only they had the answers to the problem of covid.

is Vanity Fair relevant?

DeSantis has the benefit and fortune of being advised by Dr. Ladapo, whereas Trump was saddled with advice from proud traitors Fauci, Birx, et al.

I do fault Trump for listening to those Mengele-wanna-be bureaucrats, but those two have been part of the DC swamp for decades, and Trump was a novice -- and political outsider -- president.

I can only imagine the howls of outrage if Trump had followed his instincts and fired at least Fauci and Birx.

The covid19 farce was a pure setup to steal the election and insert current president potatohead in office. It's as plain as day.

I used to enjoy magazines like Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. It's tragic that they have become propaganda outlets for Big Pharma.

95% efficacy was always a lie. That is a relative risk reduction figure. Absolute risk reduction was around 0.85%. That fact was known for some time, and was published in the Lancet a couple of years ago, but was completely ignored by the mass media.

What DeSantis should do is ship all the journalist parents in Florida back home where they belong in their blue states.

Gov. DeSantis exhibited a sense of principle, which is to the legacy media what garlic is to Dracula.

This statistic "1 person in 1,000 - per month" are getting the shot in Germany is as baffling as the 34 percent of Americans who reportedly think Biden is doing a good job.

My quest continues to finally meet ONE of that 34 percent. Not to mention that delusional person who wants to get another covid shot.

I don’t think it’s just his Covid response that they have a problem with. It’s any conservative voice thats threatens the DC establishment.

Everyone should read (or re-read) the statement from Dr. Hotez that Alex references (w/link) in this article. Truly frightening.
