Pandemics of the Vaccinated
A new study showing negative efficacy in the vaccinated
A study from earlier in October looked at the effectiveness of Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine against infection and COVID-19 hospitalisation. This has been done many times before but this one looked specifically at effectiveness against SAR-CoV-2 Omicron subvariants.
The study looked at a total of 123,236 individuals (30,809 positive cases and 92,427 negative cases). 12,724 (41.3%) positive cases where in the triple jabbed and 9,909 (32.2%) in the unvaccinated. There were 1,793 hospitalisations.
Whilst protection against hospitalisation (with 3 doses) was high, it reduced with each new Omicron variant. Furthermore, the authors say that vaccine efficacy against hospitalisation for BA.4/BA.5 could be particularly low for immunocompromised individuals.
So, the very people that need protection then.
However, the interesting results are those looking at efficacy against infection.
Apart from for BA.1, for all other Omicron subvariants tested, efficacy against infection went negative after 150 days.
Comparing 3 dosed vaccinated individuals against unvaccinated ones showed a -24.9% vaccine efficacy after 150 days with BA.2. 14 days after vaccination, efficacy was estimated to be 61% so you can see how quickly it dropped in to negative territory. BA.12.1 produced a -26.8% efficacy after 150 days. This had dropped from 82.7% at 14 days.
Negative vaccine efficacy means you are more likely to get a SARS-CoV-2 infection than an unvaccinated person.
So let’s just get this straight. If you were unvaccinated you weren’t allowed to travel, visit relatives and in many countries participate in every day life. However, if you were triple jabbed you could get yourself a shiny Vax Pass and do what the hell you liked. Why? Officially because you were safe. You couldn’t spread the virus. You were saving Granny.
But, in reality, after 150 days you were more likely to get infected with the virus and therefore be spreading it around. In fact, if the hospitalisation efficacy stats are accurate, your may not have had some of the symptoms and so were less likely to stay at home feeling ill. So, you were more likely to have the virus and more likely to be walking around in everyday life, passing it to everyone.
And people were sacked from their jobs, whilst more infectious people kept theirs.
Oh, and this was a Moderna funded study. Probably not the results they were looking for!
