I read an article about the last trials of the Pfizer vaccine. There was one severe reaction among the 18,500 or so who got the vaccine, and there was one severe reaction among the group who got the salt-water placebo. In other words, the number of severe reactions, statistically speaking, was not significant.

On the subject of the Covid-19 vaccines, what is with the holdup in Japan? Why haven't vaccinations started in your country?

There was a disturbing death of a Miami physician just days after receiving the Pfizer vaccine.

Dr. Gregory Michael, 56, an OB-GYN at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, died after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke apparently resulting from a lack of platelets. He went from healthy to infirmed in mere days.

This death is being investigated by the Florida Department of Health and being reviewed by the CDC and the FDA.

There are sudden deaths all the time, if you begin to follow literally millions of people it would be actually very rare not to find at least one case.

There is nothing disturbing about it, that would be like saying that every sudden death of people not vaccinated was precisely related to that lack of vaccine.

It obviously has to be taken in account, but unless things begins to happen more frequently than in the normal population then there is no meaning in being anxious because of it. By definition it would still mean you have the same chances of having that outcome with or without the vaccine.

Polyethylene glycol is made from ethylene glycol, used in antifreeze. If you get the vaccine, maybe you won’t freeze to death this winter.
