"But some university officials have expressed concern about an influx of vaccine recipients to the campuses that could disrupt classes for students and their club activities."

Well, it can happen DURING A PANDEMIC!

All these vaccines don’t mean anything unless the great online booking system isn’t fixed

Although we are concerned about the burden on students (from hosting the vaccination site), it is a duty for universities to contribute to society," a Fukuoka university official said.

Translation: We receive loads of money from the government, we couldn’t say no.

Vaccination numbers are going to go through the roof I think. Good to see.

Bring old and sick to the place where young people meet and then after lectures, spread around the community. Good plan?

Exactly. Club activities then again, perhaps shouldn't be happening during a pandemic.

I want to believe Japanese Medical authorities are fully aware about what is discussed and addressed by Dr. Byram Bridle in this audio interview (mentioning a request for information to the Japanese Regulatory Agency), hopefully they will take those claims & studies seriously and will get to the bottom of it before scaling up full scale vaccination or we might be on a direct trajectory path toward an horrible scenario :

Great articles. Need to be read by everyone, particularly those in the J-government.

LMAO these educators are about as stupid as they come. Wouldn't you think that the PANDEMIC did exactly what they are concerned about. The pandemic disrupted classes and club activities. Where is the logic?

Doubtful, as I can't imagine too many serious medical professionals in Japan are paying much attention to Christian-Right websites and/or podcasts. (Hopefully)

I have been very critical of the slow pace of vaccinations, and this new effort seems like there are a lot of kinks to work out. But I have to say that it seems like the Japanese government is at least moving in the right direction. With the universities and companies becoming vaccination sites, things should pick up speed. All the mistakes until now can’t be reversed, but it seems the government is finally catching on. Anyway I am going to try and be positive and see how this all works out. I am certainly more positive than I was a month ago. Let’s hope that these kinds of initiatives keep coming.

The S1 protein of SARS-CoV-2 crosses the blood–brain barrier in mice

Not sure it's a good idea to roll it out for younger people when things like this are suddenly being discovered...

What else do we not know?

The universities, especially the big National Universities who took billions of yen for COVID-19 research, most definitely should give back to the communities by providing vaccinations. Yes, that means the University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, Osaka University, Tohoku University, etc. (We know a lot of your medical staff are already vaccinated, so how about sharing some of that feeling of security with us regular folks...)

’Gearing up’ that’s a new one to add to the list.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

I'm glad to see universities "gearing up" to help out in getting people vaccinated. But why so late? Couldn't the universities have gotten "geared up" last year?

Here is the "gearing up" we got in 2020.

Abe wouldn't let permanent foreign residents back into Japan with the tacit assumption that foreigners were the disease spreaders while the were Japanese pure as pure could be.

As the virus spread, Suga decided to give his fellow citizens "Go to travel" and "Go to eat," which didn't help matters at all.

Meanwhile, people in the rest of the world were being inoculated but not in Japan.

What suddenly happened? Yes, the Olympics. The LDP government had to "gear up" or the Olympics would go down the drain.

If there were no Olympics forthcoming, would Suga and company be gearing up?

It seems that Pfizer vaccine researchers did not realize that S-protein (spike protein), generated by mRNA vaccine, is a toxin and pathogenic protein (as stated by Prof. Byram Bridle, viral immunologist, Univ of Guelph). Contrary to Pfizer assumptions, mRNA (messenger RNA) does not stay in muscles, and S-protein travels into bloodstream (11 subjects out of 13 had S-protein in blood. Pfizer's biodistribution study for Japanese Gov.). S-protein circulating in blood is the reason for blood clots, bleeding, myocardia...

“The results of this leaked Pfizer study tracing the biodistribution of the vaccine mRNA are not surprising, but the implications are terrifying,” says Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Did you just make those people and quotes up Chris?

Because with no links to support your assertions, it looks like you just made those people and quotes up.

Everything can be pathogenic, the most important thing is that the mRNA vaccine causes the body to produce the spike protein at the microgram level, while the natural infection can reach grams, that is a million times more. No drugs or vaccines require to be proved absolutely safe, nor that every single possible pathway that could lead to pathology be assessed, the requisite for vaccines to be used in the general population is for it to be much safer than the natural infection. Phase III trials as well as the data from millions of vaccinated people around the world point unequivocally to this, the process by which vaccines make the immune system reacts to the spike protein (the major pathway for viral neutralization) decreases the risk for everybody vaccinated.

There is nothing "terrifying" about the vaccine ending up in the blood stream, that is inside of what is expected and changes absolutely nothing about the observed safety of the vaccine. It is still much safer than getting the infection.

But some university officials have expressed concern about an influx of vaccine recipients to the campuses that could disrupt classes for students and their club activities.

Idiots! what's more important? Preventing a short term disruption to classes and clubs or preventing a catastrophe as Japan continues to lag in vaccines?? this is important!

Is “gearing up” before or after planning & considering?

I so don't understand this!! How can it cause disruption?? I can see if a student tests positive for covid, that would cause disruption.

Sometimes Japanese logic just defeats me.

Oh, but the spike protein is very pathogenic. That is the protein that is causing most of the damage. The mRNA vaccines get into the bloodstream, resulting in the toxic spike protein spreading and accumulating throughout the body (brain, spleen, liver, adrenal glands, ovaries...). This happens regardless of whether you are healthy or not. While in healthy people, a natural infection does not get very far.

I remember several months ago you saying that an asymptomatic infection results in a gram of viral protein. There is no way that is true, not even close. And you never provided a reference for that, you just multiplied two random numbers.

How "very" pathogenic? what is the CC50? how do you explain that even very old people can get vaccinated without any health problem? that alone contradicts completely your belief.

In reality the amount of protein produced by the vaccine is in the microgram level, and most of it remains in the injection site (that has no special kind of pathology observed) the tiny amounts that disperse around the body have no described pathological effect. This is what "everything can be pathogenic" means, every single protein in your body can be pathologic, but usually it is not.

Now, how did you calculate the amount of spike protein produced in the body during an infection to categorically say it is not possible to produce a gram of it? What random numbers are you misremembering? Coronaviruses are well described, the average amount of viruses produced by pulse, the amount of protein in each virion, the duration of the typical infection. The amount of cells of the epithelial respiratory tissue, etc. How much did you calculate (because you are just not talking about what you imagine is the quantity, right?)

I actually did calculate it a while back, using extremely generous parameters to get some rough idea of the upper limit, and it was nowhere close to 1 gram.

Oh, I see. It doesn't kill everyone, so it's perfectly fine...

Hey, you are the one saying other people are wrong, what value did you get? is it even comparable to the scale produced by the vaccine? vaguely you confirmed other people are wrong is not enough to prove it.

Oh, I see. It doesn't kill everyone, so it's perfectly fine...

False, it doesn't kill any more people than not vaccinating, that is the whole point. Your supposedly very toxic vaccine does not produce any extra amount of deaths when compared with people that did not get it. That is one of the arguments for its safety. And it would prove your conclusions as false.
