Thailand to boost Sinovac with AstraZeneca as Delta variant drives worst COVID-19 outbreak

  Thailand to boost Sinovac with AstraZeneca as Delta variant drives worst COVID-19 outbreak Sinovac vaccines are readily available, but as Thailand faces a surge in COVID-19 variant cases, the Chinese-developed drug is not enough. Now, the South-East Asian nation is forced into a desperate, world-first and untested vaccine strategy.More than 10 million people are under strict restrictions and a curfew as infections of the Delta COVID-19 variant rise in the capital of Bangkok and surrounding provinces.

'More young people die of peanuts': Doctor urges Australians to get the Covid vaccine despite the brand.

The president of the Australian Medical Association, Dr Omar Khorshid, says it is unlikely lockdown measures can contain the Delta outbreak in New South Wales and has urged the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (Atagi) to recommend the AstraZeneca vaccine for more age groups. The advice states when there is an outbreak and the supply of Pfizer is limited, people under 60 without immediate access to Pfizer should “reassess the benefits to them and their contacts from being vaccinated with Covid -19 vaccine AstraZeneca, versus the rare risk of a serious side-effect”.

An Australian doctor has urged younger Australians to consider the AstraZeneca Covid vaccine, saying the risk from an adverse reaction to peanuts is higher.

Dr Kean-Seng Lim from Mt Druitt in Sydney's west said NSW is in a situation where for those in hotspot areas, getting a vaccine as a priority may be better than waiting for Pfizer vaccine.

Australia's peak authority on vaccines ATAGI recommends Pfizer for people aged under 60 because of a very rare blood-clot side-effect linked to AstraZeneca - but anyone over 18 can access this option if the provide 'informed consent'.

Few immigrants in detention have been vaccinated. That needs to change.

  Few immigrants in detention have been vaccinated. That needs to change. Covid-19 outbreaks in ICE detention have made vaccinations more urgent.As of last week, 8,221 immigrants in US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, or roughly 30 percent of the detained population, had received one dose of the vaccine, CBS News reported. Just over 1,300, or about 4 percent, had received two doses. (The agency has not indicated how many immigrants have refused the vaccine or have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is just one dose.

Henry said they felt because of their rural location and lifestyle, their risk of exposure was low. While one of her six children also tested positive and avoided hospitalization, Lonnie is currently on a ventilator. Christy herself was intubated for at least two days.

Thousands of young Australians have already had the AstraZeneca vaccine and Dr Lim said it was an 'amazingly effective' vaccine provided the risks and benefits are considered.

'There are reactions to vaccines even in normal times and quite frankly you get reactions to anything ... I think more people probably die of peanuts than they die of vaccines,' Dr Lim told Today on Saturday.

'The AstraZeneca vaccines are in good availability and any vaccination now is going to be better than one which isn't there for you when you need it,' he said.

Dr Lim said there is a possibility lockdowns across the country may not be able to successfully contain the delta strain and that vaccination is the only way out of the pandemic.

Pregnant women still largely ineligible for Pfizer COVID vaccine, despite health authority recommendation

  Pregnant women still largely ineligible for Pfizer COVID vaccine, despite health authority recommendation Pregnant women are struggling to get vaccinated against COVID-19, despite health advice recommending they be offered the Pfizer vaccine.In June, updated guidelines from the government's expert advisory panel on vaccines — ATAGI — and the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) recommended the Pfizer vaccine be offered at any stage of pregnancy.

The mainstream media and the medical orthodoxy is adamant that everyone needs to get the jab – or face exclusion from everyday freedoms and be shunned from society. Don’t they realise how fascistic this view is? This is not an anti- vaccine rant. How tragic that the press are now the government lapdogs. “The View”, a daily talk show on ABC, is just one of many outlets that seek to humiliate and shame those who are not following the approved Covid narrative. For the last couple of weeks, I have watched its presenter, Sunny Hostin, insult Americans whom she brands the ‘ vaccine hesitant.’

All of this would explain the mad rush to vaccinate people at “warp speed,” using any ploy or coercion tactic necessary to reach the desired target. Once enough vaccinated people start dropping dead, the remaining unvaccinated will more than likely resist, which is why the Biden regime is moving quickly “A certain frequency will resonate with the target only by the mobility tower closest to your home. Skynet is not sending droids, but frequencies.” More of the latest news about the death and destruction being brought to bear by Wuhan coronavirus ( Covid -19) injections can be found at ChemicalViolence.com.

He said vaccines should be distributed to where they are needed the most - agreeing with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian's plea that more virus doses be allocated to her state.

But Mr Lim also added adhering to restrictions was still extremely important so that virus numbers do not surge out of control.

'It's important we still keep doing everything we can to keep the numbers low, because at this point the number of people in Australia who are actually fully vaccinated is not high enough to give us full protection.'

Currently about 11 per cent of the Australian population is fully vaccinated.

What are the chances of getting a blood clot?

Number who get blood clots after AstraZeneca per 100,000 people:

18-29 years: 1.9

30-39 years: 1.6

40-49 years: 5.0

50-59 years: 2.7

60-69 years: 1.4

70-79 years: 1.8

Only three per cent of people who get the clots die

Team Biden Somehow Failed to Hire Someone to Fight Vaxx Disinfo

  Team Biden Somehow Failed to Hire Someone to Fight Vaxx Disinfo As early as last autumn, public health experts and political leaders were sounding the alarm that conspiracist campaigns posed a dire threat to a future nationwide vaccination program—a threat that necessitated the appointment of a “disinformation czar” to counter anti-vaccine messaging. The incoming Biden administration initially intended to heed those calls by placing a disinformation expert on the White House COVID-19 Response Team, according to multiple members of the transition team, but never followed through.

As these experimental vaccines create ‘spike proteins,’ vaccinated individuals ‘can shed some of these particles to close contacts’ causing disease in them, including in children. Mainstream media sources are promoting offensive suggestions by some doctors that people who refuse a vaccine for COVID -19 should be "punished" by the government and by business - effectively coercing them into taking the vaccine . One group of doctors writing in 'USA Today' suggested that the government impose special taxes (i.e., fines) on people who refuse the vaccination and that business simply

" Vaccines for SARS, MERS and RSV have never been approved, and the data generated in the development and testing of these vaccines suggest a serious mechanistic concern: that vaccines designed empirically using the traditional approach (consisting of the unmodified or minimally modified coronavirus viral spike to elicit neutralizing antibodies), be they composed of protein, viral vector, DNA or RNA and irrespective. of delivery method, may worsen COVID -19 disease via antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE)," the paper states. "This risk is sufficiently obscured in clinical trial protocols and

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said this week the vaccine rollout had hit a milestone with 1million vaccine doses being administered the previous week.

According the the Australian Bureau of Statistics there were 324 deaths from anaphylaxis or allergic reaction between 1997 and 2013.

The breakdown of this is 205 from unspecified causes, 52 from medications, 41 from insect bites, 23 from food allergies, and three from blood products.

The latest Vaccine Safety report from ATAGI said that from the 6.1million doses of AstraZeneca administered in the country, there have been 87 cases of blood clots.

According to government data released on June 28, about two in 100,000 people will get a blood clot from the AstraZeneca jab and only three per cent of those affected will die, a mortality rate of 0.6 in one million.

Meanwhile, the Covid-19 mortality rate in Australia is 3.9 per cent, or 39,000 in a million.

The risks of Covid and vaccines are different for each individual, depending on personal circumstances such as age, location and job, which is why politicians and health experts are asking people to speak to their GPs about taking the vaccine.

Could lower vaccine doses be key to ending the COVID pandemic?

  Could lower vaccine doses be key to ending the COVID pandemic? Fractional or lower dosing has been used around the world for years as a means to overcome vaccine shortages. In 2016, it was used in Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo during Yellow Fever outbreaks there. Now, evidence suggests that it could be done with some COVID-19 vaccines. While 3.79 billion vaccine doses have been administered worldwide, 73.1 percent of the global population has yet to receive one, according to Our World in Data. As many rich countries reopen after vaccinating most of their citizens, in lower-income countries only 1.1 percent of people have received at least one dose.

On Wednesday Prime Minster Scott Morrison also revealed he is 'constantly appealing' to health experts to recommend the AstraZeneca vaccine to younger Australians.

While NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian on Friday called for a huge shake up of the vaccine rollout to help get Sydney out of lockdown.

She wants to make under 40s eligible for Pfizer in Covid-ravaged areas; to delay second doses of Pfizer to six weeks to get more first doses out; and to have supplies for states without outbreaks re-assigned to NSW.

The premier also called on Atagi to recommend AstraZeneca for over 40s.

Vaccine rollout boss Lieutenant General John Frewen said other states would have to agree to give up their doses.

He also said Ms Berejiklian's plan to hand out more Pfizer is not a complete solution.

'Suddenly deciding to throw a particular vaccine at one geographic area does not give you an immediate solution to a problem,' he said.

The premier urged over 40s to take the AstraZeneca vaccine and revealed she wants the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation to recommend the jab for over 40s.

'There are a lot of people in New South Wales in their 40s, 50s, and in their 60s, who don't have any vaccine.

'We say to everybody, please get vaccinated, if you have any concerns go to your GPs. We have more capacity for AstraZeneca,' she said.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for kids aged 12-15. Here's what happens next

  The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for kids aged 12-15. Here's what happens next Australia's medicines regulator has approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for young teenagers, but experts say it'll be some time yet before most kids are included in the wider vaccine rollout. Now that the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has decided the vaccine is safe for 12 to 15-year-olds, it's up to another group, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI), to decide how and when younger people should get the vaccine.So when will most children get the vaccine, how effective is it, and does this approval mean adults have to wait?Here are some of your common questions answered.

On July 9, Mr Morrison announced a four stage plan to get Australia back to normal, with each step to be triggered when the vaccination rate hits a certain percentage.

The vaccination percentages required are being calculated by modelling experts at The Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity and will be released at the end of July.

What are the four phases of opening up?

1. Vaccinate, prepare and pilot (from July 14)

Arrival caps cut in half to 3,035 a week; lockdowns and state border closures as a last resort; trials of seven-day home quarantine for vaccinated arrivals; medicare vaccination certificates available on apps like apple wallet

2. Post vaccination phase (when an as-yet unannounced percentage of Aussies are jabbed, expected early next year)

No lockdowns or state borders except for 'extreme circumstances'; caps for unvaccinated arrivals doubled to 6,070; home quarantine for vaccinated arrivals; capped entry for students and economic visa holders

3. Consolidation phase (date not announced)

Lifting all restrictions for outbound travel for vaccinated travellers; no caps for vaccinated arrivals; vaccinated people exempted from domestic restrictions; increased caps for students and visa holders; more travel bubbles being set up with countries such as Singapore; booster shots rolled out

4. Final phase (date not announced)

Uncapped arrivals for vaccinated people without any quarantine and uncapped arrivals for unvaccinated people with testing before departure and on arrival

Tucker Carlson: This isn't about the science, here's proof .
Tucker Carlson examines the evidence behind the CDC's new mask recommendations and highlights how their new guidance is all about power.If you’re looking for a single snapshot that perfectly distills the pure, hallucinogenic absurdity of the moment we’re living in, consider the Biden administration’s new guidance on COVID. We learned yesterday that America’s children will spend yet another year with covered faces. This, despite the fact that masks are demonstrably terrible for kids, and kids face no meaningful threat from coronavirus. Doesn’t matter. The White House says kids have to mask up. And so they will.
