So to summarize, children under 12 who were at no risk from catching Covid, have received a jab that now makes them more susceptible to catching Covid and developing autoimmune diseases or any number of long term health problems if they are lucky enough to live that long. Any one who pushed these gene therapy jabs as safe and effective has blood on their hands. Oh and it's not a defence to say I was just following orders. Leave the kids alone!

Jesus christ, a lame semantics argument over the difference between jail and prison is all you have to respond to the fact that conservatives have never supported anything but the harshest conditions and punishment possible for anyone caught up in the criminal justice system. I'm simply pointing that millions of people have suffered over the years in our jails and prisons, renowned the world over for being barbaric and sadistic, and you guys only noticed it last year for a select set of privileged and generally well off white dudes who thought they could freely commit crimes with no consequences.

Your concern is completely insincere and will be gone the moment they leave the news because you never really cared. And I love that you have the audacity to say all of that beneath a post asking for long, harsh sentences for people based on a graphic that Mr. Berenson very deceptively clipped to hide the footnote (shown below) that contradicted his statement that the authors didn't comment on the negative VE:

"Negative VE values observed in later timepoints likely reflect estimator instability and/or residual confounding, as opposed to true relatively increased risk for those vaccinated."

And deceptively ignored the conclusion of the authors that, "In the Omicron era, the effectiveness against cases of BNT162b2 declined rapidly for children, particularly those 5-11 years. However, vaccination of children 5-11 years was protective against severe disease and is recommended."

You guys jump at the thought of sentencing doctors and scientists who saved countless lives to long and cruel prison terms for literally nothing more than a misinterpreted pre-print paper that you guys didn't even bother to read or glance at. So spare me the fake concern.

If you look at the graphic from the source paper, the authors have a footnote for the negative VE values that Mr. Berenson must have accidentally cropped out of his image. It's only right there and directly explains why they might have happened so it's easy to miss.

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2022.02.25.22271454v1

"Negative VE values observed in later timepoints likely reflect estimator instability and/or residual confounding, as opposed to true relatively increased risk for those vaccinated."

And he forgot to include the conclusion of the authors too.

"In the Omicron era, the effectiveness against cases of BNT162b2 declined rapidly for children, particularly those 5-11 years. However, vaccination of children 5-11 years was protective against severe disease and is recommended."

I'm sure it was just a mistake as it doesn't really change any of the conclusions people are drawing from his summary.

"Negative VE values observed in later timepoints likely reflect estimator instability and/or residual confounding, as opposed to true relatively increased risk for those vaccinated."

Given the narrative being pushed by government, the public health establishment, and the media for the last 14 months since these "vaccines" were rolled out, and the censoring, smearing, and cancellation attempts against anyone who dissented (however tentatively), this is about what I would expect the authors to say. Did you happen to notice that it's merely an assertion for which they provided no evidence?

As for their conclusion that "vaccination of children 5-11 years was protective against severe disease," the data presented simply don't support that. I'm assuming "severe disease" means "hospitalization," given that hospitalizations were one of two outcomes the authors measured; as the paper states, "Two outcomes were assessed: 1) COVID-19 cases, defined as positive NAAT or antigen results reported to ECLRS, 2) New COVID-19 admissions as reported in HERDS."

Notice that their definition of hospitalization is "new COVID-19 admissions." That's important because in the preceding paragraph, when describing the data sources they relied on, they say that "The Health Electronic Response Data System (HERDS) includes a statewide, daily electronic survey of inpatient facilities, including all new admissions with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 and the primary reason for admission." Going back to the authors' definition of hospitalization, you'll see it does not mention primary reason for admission; it's merely "new COVID-19 admissions," not "new admissions with COVID-19 as the primary reason for admission." Given how easy it would have been to make it clear if they were only counting admissions for which COVID-19 was the primary reason, as opposed to all child admissions in which a COVID-19 test upon admission was positive, we have to assume that they're counting admissions *with* COVID as opposed to only admissions *due to* COVID. And given that we have no way to tell how many admissions fall into which of those two categories, those data are useless for determining vaccine efficacy against severe disease.

That's not even the only way the hospital admissions data are worthless. Another is in how it says nothing about whether the children admitted were otherwise healthy or had comorbidities like obesity or diabetes. Of the tiny numbers of children who are hospitalized due to COVID, the overwhelming majority have at least one comorbidity. There might, maybe, possibly, be a valid argument for vaccinating those kids in some cases (I still wouldn't), but that argument decidedly does not apply to healthy children.

This all smacks of an attempt to find evidence to support a pre-determined conclusion. Recall that Pfizer's own trial for the 5-11 year old cohort showed no clinical benefit from the vaccines (severe illnesses and deaths from COVID are so rare in that age group that no one in either the vaccine group or control group had a significant COVID illness during the trial; in their EUA application for that cohort, Pfizer immunobridged with their results in the 12-17 year old cohort to conjure a clinical benefit to the 5-11 year olds).

Finally, the last sentence of the papers reads: "Given rapid loss of protection against infections, these results highlight the continued importance of layered protections, including mask wearing, for children to prevent infection and transmission." Of course, the results highlight no such thing. Given how little risk COVID poses to children and how rarely they transmit it to adults (see: schools everywhere in the world), and given that we know masks don't do a damn thing, both the authors' conclusion and the footnote to the negative VE table look an awful lot like an attempt to dishonestly explain away what the data actually show, either to deflect accusations of "misinformation" or because they actually support the "everyone needs to be jabbed" narrative.

At the risk of being a 'bad winner'... somebody's gotta be 'that guy' so I'll step up.

People who demanded that their children be injected with Pfizer Magic Jizz, are doing society a favour - because fewer of their children will make it to adulthood. It's only a slight tilt to propabilities, but I'll gladly accept anything that gets their sludge DNA out of the gene pool.

Western societies have been subsidising reproduction of the Imbecile Classes for 3 generations, and it has been profoundly dysgenic.

The entire Magic Spooge Festival has basically been a gigantic test of applied IQ - and nobody should be surprised that a very large number of imbeciles have failed it.

There will be fewer of them as time passes: this is an unalloyed mitzvah, and anyone who tells you otherwise is a dill.

I have two 8th-graders in public school and our school system just sent all parents an email saying they were opening 5 'vaccination clinics' in 5 local middle schools.

There are already posters all over the schools telling kids to get the shot for a virus that has zero mortality to them but many possibly serious side effects so don't think for one minute they won't be lobbying and pressuring kids to get the jab. Although a parent is required to be in attendance, the indoctrination has already begun.

You can be immune to an infection without ever having gotten infected previously. In every population, there are always a number of individuals who have innate immunity. Not post-infection immunity. Innate immunity.

It is possible. I also have been in direct contact with all the strains of Covid at one point or another in the past 2 years. I never got sick. I am also unvaxxed and staying that way. I wouldn't presume to be immune to the degree that I would voluntarily come into contact with Covid but I just live my normal life. No mask. No vax. Just normal life. I take lots of supplements and I try to be healthy but that is just the usual. I've been taking Vitamin D supplements for many years.

A lot of the problem was making the older, more obese and less healthy segments of the population believe that getting children and younger, healthier people "vaccinated," would serve to protect THEMSELVES. That's what was constantly shouted about the "common good" of mass vaccination. Liberals who fashion themselves more caring, loving, empathetic, etc ended up as complete hypocrites who did not want to hear that that their "greater common good" was sacrificing the young for the old.

Prayers for all the kids who got these jabs. They might end up with a lifetime of health problems - or a shortened lifespan. The truth is that nobody knows what the long term consequences might be. If Covid were killing large numbers of children - and if the jabs prevented Covid - then maybe that is a risk worth taking. But we have a situation where Covid kills zero healthy children. Zero. And the jabs don't prevent Covid anyway. Sometimes, I have to wonder how I ended up in this timeline.

* The mRNA jabs provide some protection for the first two weeks of “full vaccination.” *

lol, The "protection" is they treat those 2 weeks as unvaccinated.

From the study: "The analysis compared outcomes among fully vaccinated children (defined as series completion+ 14 days) versus unvaccinated children in the age groups 5-11 years and 12 -17 years."

EDIT: Looks like the chart with the 2 week says: Incidence rate ratios, comparing cases during January 3 - January 30, 2022 for unvaccinated versus children newly fully-vaccinated December 13, 2021-January 2, 2022, by Time Since Full Vaccination

So assuming that the 14 days is excluded from full vaccination start, it just means that the "protection" is an artifact of having made it through the 1st 2 high risk weeks without infection. Don't see where they say how the cases are handled in that time period, could have missed it.

What's weird is he accidentally cropped out this footnote that is directly below the graphic that says:

"Negative VE values observed in later timepoints likely reflect estimator instability and/or residual confounding, as opposed to true relatively increased risk for those vaccinated."

He even chopped a bit of the bottom numbers off like he was trying to avoid it, but I'm sure that he'd have no reason to chop off the one piece of information that totally undermines the entire premise of his article and its final sentence which seems relevant:

"The researchers did not mention the negative effectiveness in their discussion of their findings."

The authors also recommended that those kids should still get vaccinated and wear masks but it's not like he disagrees with those things in general so it's fine that he didn't mention them in this article. All very fine, all very cool.

How has this happened? How could they jab children, or most people for that matter, against a disease that wasn't a serious threat to them?

It's absolutely incredible that this has happened, this insane plan to jab the entire planet, which has been led by Bill Gates...yes, it's not a conspiracy theory, Bill Gates is indeed dominating international vaccination policy, and has been for years via the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Gavi Alliance, the WHO, CDC etc.

In regards to Covid, see his GatesNotes published on 30 April 2020: What you need to know about the COVID-19 vaccine: https://www.gatesnotes.com/health/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-covid-19-vaccine

Who has been really missing in action during this Covid debacle over the past two years?

I suggest it was the doctors...how did the doctors let this happen, let literally billions of people be jabbed unnecessarily, particularly children?

Sure, there are some exceptions fighting to be heard such as Peter McCullough, Roger Hodkinson and others, but the doctors' professional organisations and regulators have been fully behind the Covid jab rollout, and regulators have actually threatened to penalise doctors who speak out.

I'm challenging the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners about the failure to obtain valid voluntary consent before the Covid jabs, I suggest no-one has been properly informed about these fast-tracked experimental jabs - see my email to RACGP President Karen Price: Covid-19 jab mandates overriding 'valid voluntary consent': https://bit.ly/3ssSNx0

One thing: While I'm generally a libertarian kind of guy, we have to limit in some way the obscene wealth people are allowed to accumulate. Or perhaps put limitations on the way they can use it. Stripped of his billions, Bill Gates would be just another silly ass****. Ditto most of the other insanely rich oligarchs.
