while the AstraZeneca jab will be available to people aged under 60 who sign an indemnity form.
That makes you so confident to get it LOL

Public health experts estimate that approximately 70% of the world’s 7.9 billion people must be fully vaccinated to end the COVID-19 pandemic.
Disinformation at its best ! "must be fully vaccinated" should read "needs to be immune" so suddenly natural immunity does not exist anymore for those who already got the covid19 for thos "health expert" ? No better vaccine than the natural disease. No surprise they are losing all their credibility.

It is now known that age causes little difference in the efficacy or safety of the vaccine.
Well let's see what WHO says about Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine from 12 to 15 :
"WHO does not recommend vaccination of children below 16 years of age, even if they belong to a high-risk group."
Who should not take the vaccine?
People with a history of severe allergic reaction to any component of the vaccine should not take it.
The vaccine has only been tested in children above 16 years of age. Therefore, at this time, WHO does not recommend vaccination of children below 16 years of age, even if they belong to a high-risk group.
Does it prevent infection and transmission?
There is currently no substantive data are available related to impact of Pfizer BioNTech vaccine on transmission or viral shedding.
In the meantime, we must maintain and strengthen public health measures that work: masking, physical distancing, handwashing, respiratory and cough hygiene, avoiding crowds, and ensuring good ventilation

taking care of patient at the early stage is what makes the difference between life and death, lockdown is only necessary when you do not want to give your heath care system the necessary fund and support to work efficiently (when saving money is more important than saving life).

I have an idea, make consumption tax worldwide proportional to your wealth, the more you accumulate , the more things get expensive to you and the more you are participating to the world and the more affordable things will be for those who have poor income, time to redistribute at the end of the pipeline not at the source.

Finally we are seeing the wolf in the wood, the real agenda, as seen everywhere in the world, restrict freedom and impose general surveillance, Europe being the leader in the block in that matter, no one talk about improving the medical health system which failed because of lack of creating ICU beds (when not closing them during the pandemic) or how to take in charge @ EARLY STAGE any patient.

Of course the word "experimental" is a key definition word of this drug downplayed systematically by every mRNA extremist posters, ask yourself how parents will react if they were presented to this mRNA vaccine in a pure and honest ethically way by a doctor "Do you give your consent that we inject your children an experimental drug now?" No surprise it is downplayed, it can appeal only to one who will get a financial benefit of the vaccination, difficult to imagine parents willing to submit their children to something experimental with a balance/risk so heavy in the risk zone.

So how will the all process be installed if carried by private companies and not gvt? Employee have to sign a discharge and renounce to any claim in case of side effect before receiving the shot or are they still covered under the Gvt's umbrella and entitled to the same compensation?

@gakinotsukai, the numbers I wrote are nothing relative to test, they are the ACTUAL numbers of people hospitalized @ today's date with serious conditions as reported in the linked URL data page I posted, I calculated myself the relative % to the global population of Japan, that's all..
-6 ( +2 / -8 )
The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is 62
Whole Japan is 385 (~0.0003% of the population or 1 per 328,051) with an average age of 64 :
80s : 83 70s : 128 60s : 91 50s : 55 40s : 28
No one below 40s in serious condition.

@jsapc, you have perfectly the right to have the opinion that the VAERS's data means nothing and have no correlation with the act of doing the vaccination and that the whole process is a waste of time and resources if you want, I have a different opinion.

It is frustrating, to state truth and be ignored and/or down-voted.
But many who are silent, still read.
Frustrating but not surprising, indeed it is pretty common to witness manufacturers jumping into denial-mode downvoting comments and ramping-up the troll-bot army to fight any articles which refer to possibilities that their products might have a flaw in the design and/or being not as harmless as advertised. Personally I cannot judge however I have nothing to sell and no conflict of interest in that matter and I only wish people who are about to get the shot with mRNA form themselves or children just have enough reading to give a real consent and not a forged/imposed one.

@Yohan, Who wrote about forgetting about the one who got infected by the virus and sadly died? Certainly not me and not that scientist, it is an article about the rest of the world (the majority of us) who are not infected yet and the risk for them after receiving a protein now known as being pathogenic during the vaccine process, please read again thank you.

@virusrex, Some can continue to push their sales-man narrative everyday here if they want, I believe It is a normal process that researchers are doing their work to research and raise alarms when they feel something might be wrong and should be monitored, questioned and answered by the manufacturer to eventually fix & reduce the side-effect of a any drug/vaccine which was never used before on human at that scale. The "tiny fraction of toxin" you are referring to is now tolling 4,000 death to date reported to the U.S. government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) as of May 21 (as written in that article), 4,000 person with a life to live and families, not just a number in an excel sheet, why they had to die so other can be protected should be the only main priority of any vaccine manufacturer right now and not the "how can scale this up"?

Strangerland Today 09:38 am JST New research conducted in Japan shows that Lipid NanoParticles (LNPs) containing the mRNA code are widely circulated around the body after vaccination, reaching the brain, spleen, large intestine, heart, liver, lungs and other organs.
Follow the link below if you want to know more about the claim :
In a short version, the vaccine is asking, through the messenger RNA, cells to manufacture spike proteins so your immune system can develop antibodies against it, however it appears that those vaccine-induced spike protein can unexpectedly enters the bloodstream and accumulate in tissues and organs, they do not stay in the Deltoid muscle region like the manufacturer assumed it will be (this was confirmed by the Japanese Ogata biodistribution study), spike protein has been identified as the toxin which lead to many side effect of the Sars-Cov2.

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 :

Kimiyasu Hirano, a researcher at the center, said the fact that people are spending more time at home raises "concerns about adverse health effects" for passive smokers, who are at risk of disease, disability and death.
He is not the first one to raise this issue, sadly the Pro Lock-Them-All Health Taliban using the doom scenario for pushing their agenda do not care about collateral-damages.

Effective Reproduction Rate has been declining constantly for the last 10 days, below 1.0 (today 0.84) in spite no global vaccination, If R0 is less than 1, the infection will spread only slowly, and it will eventually die out.

Stop funnel tax money to US Pharma companies and start build ICU beds and form the staff with the money for god sake if apparently it is the variable which decide if we can live a normal life or not, btw the effective Reproduction Number is less than 1.0 (0.86)
