In the US, these vaccines only received and EUA. And in the official document it says "Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products..." These are absolute facts, not my personal feelings.

Nothing in your comment contradict that the experts consider the vaccines safe enough to use in the general population, ...

... for emergency use. Just like AEDs have been approved for treating cardiac arrest, but it doesn't mean that they are completely safe and that should be used to wake someone up in the morning.

they do not become less safe with an EUA, nor they magically become safer under a full approval.

Right, but if they are truly safe, they will eventually be approved.

In other words you have not proved they are unsafe, only that you want to believe so.

All I am saying is that nobody has proven they are safe, only that you want to believe so. In fact, you believed they were perfectly fine even before the trials had started!

Your personal feelings about the vaccines are irrelevant. If the experts running the human trials conclude they are safe then your personal disagreement amounts to zero.

In the US, these vaccines only received and EUA. And in the official document it says "Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products..." These are absolute facts, not my personal feelings.

The vaccines are unapproved. They never got FDA approval. Your personal disagreement with this amounts to zero.

Why not stop guessing or suspecting and go look up information before.

Yeah, I say "suspect" when I don't absolutely know or remember something perfectly. I am not the kind of person that pretends to know everything or pretend to know what is right or wrong or what the scientific consensus is...

The study involved mild to severe cases including those not cared in hospital and all aga groups.

The rest you should go look up yourself instead of guessing or using snippets from articles that also use snippets.

OK, so why don't you just provide a link to the Lancet article since you seem to know so much about it. Just saying Lancet is pretty broad.

Again, as in the previous example of blindness, people that should know better are being extremely dumb.

Oh, they do know better... than the vast majority of people. There is nothing wrong in having a party if you are careful.

But they are extreme hypocrites for telling everyone else not to party...

In Japan, nobody below 20 has died from covid. With this kind of stat, why would anyone give an unapproved vaccine to their kid. That would be abuse. Who knows what kind of long term adverse effects they will get.

Nobody has been confirmed to die from COVID, that is different. Also death is not the only negative consequence from the disease.

... and there were no serious cases below 20 years of age (according to https://toyokeizai.net/sp/visual/tko/covid19/en.html)

A safe and effective vaccine is not abuse, if it can be proved there is no significative risk then the opposite is the abuse.

Indeed, if they are proven to be safe, but these vaccines are not. These are unapproved vaccines that have only been authorized for emergency use. And their long term effects remain unknown, no matter how often you say they are safe.

... and it turns out on March 28, on JT there was indeed an article entitled "1 in 3 COVID survivors suffer long-term health issues: review"

It's no longer available but I suspect it's about the Lancet paper. From what I remember it was only among hospitalized people and the long term effects were things like fatigue, depression,...

Yes, I am familiar with the Lancet.

If you actually read the JapanToday articles, you would know that they often report on published studies.

Not needed for kids. My kids will never get these vaccines.

Anti vaxxers logic 101 ignore facts and science.

In Japan, nobody below 20 has died from covid. With this kind of stat, why would anyone give an unapproved vaccine to their kid. That would be abuse. Who knows what kind of long term adverse effects they will get.

Now add in the Lancet study on neurological problems ( not yet treatable) surfacing in 30% of those that had covid-19 even mild cases and in all age categories.

Is that the study that was reported on JT where they questioned people who had been hospitalized for covid19 and a certain fraction had reported things like fatigue....

It is perfectly valid to have those chances AFTER you are diagnosed with the infection, confirmed deaths and confirmed infections are the only clear data we can use to get rates, the rest is derive from inferences that may or not be wrong.

Nah, it's simply your way to get the scariest sounding number. Assuming that all infections are included in the official PCR-confirmed number does not make any sense, especially for Japan.

I already told you where to get Raoult's data of the ca. 0.07% death rate (all ages).

Posted in: Japan considers prioritizing Olympic athletes for COVID-19 vaccination See in context

I do not understand why Japan is so far behind the US in vaccinating the public. What is more important than keeping the public safe?

Sometimes being behind is a good thing; e.g. jumping off a cliff.

This "disease" has a 99.97% survival rate.

That is false and widely debunked as completely incorrect data by the scientific community.

No, you are mistaken.

With all ages included, the survival rate is around 99.97%. For Olympic athletes, it must be extremely low.

In Japan, nobody below 20 has died from covid; only 3 in their 20's and 18 in their 30's have died. But I suspect they were not athletes....

Posted in: Viral thoughts: Why COVID-19 conspiracy theories persist See in context

The above article helps demonstrate why conspiracy theories persist. They persist because they are never openly and honestly discussed in public. Conspiracy theories are generally misrepresented and criticized in very deceptive ways (as is obvious in the above article). Legit and qualified experts who try to raise certain concerns are generally censored.

Big pharma has a lot of power. They offer large financial incentives to get their way; to get favorable views of their products and to attack any critics.

or the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, when many found it difficult to accept that a lone, deranged gunman could kill the president.

I bet pro-vaxxers a more likely than the "anti-vaxxers" to believe the magic bullet theory.

I am not just playing with words, what I quoted above comes directly from an official document:

"Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products..."

The vaccines are unapproved. They never got FDA approval.

They only authorized their use because they (wrongly) assume there are no adequate alternatives available.

If you want to get it, go ahead, I'm delighted!

But I will never take any of these rushed unapproved vaccines.

There is none that says that vitamin D above normal levels has any benefit, not even your own reference.

Do you have evidence to prove that excess vitamin D is useful? put it here, else you have to accept there is no such thing.

The "normal" levels are mainly based on what is needed for bone health, basically to prevent Rickets. The RDA for vitamin D remains laughably low considering what we know now about its many physiological roles and especially for the immune system. Even Fauci admitted in an interview that he takes 10x the RDA during the winter, but all we hear him talk about is wearing a mask (or two).

Posted in: WHO does not back vaccination passports for now See in context

So yeah, they are authorized to administer these unapproved vaccines, but one should not expect them to be as safe and effective as one that has received FDA approval.

They have been approved, and up until this moment they are to be considered safe and effective, no matter how much antivaxxers hate this happening.

Oh, that is great news! I was not aware of any of these vaccines getting FDA approval.... other than the Emergency Use Authorization....

In this carefully worded report, some experts would dare to differ.

Indeed, there are many studies looking at the effectiveness of HCQ. Didier Raoult's group noticed that if you take out all studies linked to big pharma, you are left with over a hundred studies that essentially all show a positive effect (if given early).

Posted in: WHO does not back vaccination passports for now See in context

No, the ethical argument, there is nobody that is in the target population that is worse being vaccinated than if not.

That is only true if you assume that vaccines have no long term negative effects.

No matter how much big pharma wants people to believe these unapproved vaccines are completely safe and effective, nobody knows their long term effects.

And considering the very serious and valid concerns brought up by legitimate experts, most of us are not necessarily better off with a vaccine.

So, approved/authorized/given the big thumbs up then.

Not quite.

"Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives."

So yeah, they are authorized to administer these unapproved vaccines, but one should not expect them to be as safe and effective as one that has received FDA approval.

There are a number of adequate available alternatives. I suspect the main reason these treatments have been vilified and not yet approved is that that would have prevented the issuance of the EUA (Emergency Use Authorization).

So you don't mind forced vaccination without consent with vaccines that have not been fully approved yet?

A quick reminder though.

A vaccination that is available to you HAS been approved.

Actually, no!

These are unapproved vaccines and have only been authorized for emergency use.

We've been over this many times already; why do you keep on writing that.

Because it is true, I know it disproves your mistaken information but you cannot expect people to stop telling the truth just because you don't like it.

The information I provided above and many times in previous threads is derived from the actual US government sites. If you look up National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act you will find:

"Provides that no vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death: (1) resulting from unavoidable side effects; or (2) solely due to the manufacturer's failure to provide direct warnings. Provides that a manufacturer may be held liable where: (1) such manufacturer engaged in the fraudulent or intentional withholding of information; or (2) such manufacturer failed to exercise due care. Permits punitive damages in such civil actions under certain circumstances."

How can you continue to just say I am wrong and provide some completely unrelated point as proof? You do that a lot!

First there is no such a law, as easily proved as the suspension of vaccination so easy to find in the media, that is a perfectly valid example of liability, that is enough to prove this wrong.

BTW, how does suspension of vaccination prove that there is no law against holding vaccine makers liable?

unless there is a special law that prevents big pharma from being liable for injuries/death.

Unlike with other medicines, vaccine makers are only liable if they KNOWINGLY hide information. So it's in their interest to know as little as possible about the vaccines.

Posted in: The coronavirus crisis has been going on for a year now, but the authorities just keep doing the same thing over and over again. Rather than restricting our business hours, it would be more helpful economically if they reduced restaurants' capacity to 30-50% or something like that. I want them to think up a smart way to do things. See in context

Reducing capacity in a 100 person capacity restaurant to 50% sounds Ok now do the same in all the local Ramen, sushi, etc... counter type places near my home and that would mean 2 to 3 max at a time.

The problem I see with having a government dictating the measures is that each business is different. A one-size-fits-all rule can be easy for some to implement, but difficult or impossible for others.

A business can take their own measures and costumers can enter or avoid businesses that they find safe for them...

While the vaccine will lower the risk, the vast majority of people aren't even susceptible to getting ill from this virus,

There is no group of people that is absolutely free of risk,

The same is true for the vaccination, everyone is at risk of injury or death from these unapproved vaccines.

You're missing the point. The principle behind this comes from Joseph Mengele's medical experiments on people without their consent. This includes injecting people with foreign substances against their will. These victims were native Germans as well as non-German prisoners, so it doesn't have to apply specifically to wartime.

You are bringing up an interesting point. I also find that the idea of having a vaccine passport is somewhat reminiscent of the slogan "Work sets you free" from that period of time - "Vaccination sets you free!"

I already refuted that in my comment, there is no experimentation being done on the public. The vaccine is used for its therapeutic value, not with the purpose of obtaining data, this means it is not an experimental use.

Are you suggesting that they are not collecting data to obtain FDA approval. These are unapproved vaccines and have only been authorized for emergency use.

There is no money to made in creating vaccines.

... unless there is a special law that prevents big pharma from being liable for injuries/death.

Nobody knows how safe these vaccines are long term.

Irrelevant, it is already clear they are much safer in any term than the natural infection, that is enough to justify their use.

No it is not. Wick's Pencil is right, we do not yet know the long term effects.

The HPV vaccine was also considered safe and effective, and it received regular approval (not just for emergency use) and it turned out to be disastrous. Merck insiders and others explained how big pharma gets their vaccines and other products approved, through monetary incentives and aggressive campaigns to discredit anyone who opposes them.

And the warnings of the vaccine expert Geert Vanden Bossche should be taken seriously:

Nope. Many years ago I paid for an item in a store with a fresh, crisp $20 received just minutes before from my bank's ATM. The clerk in the store refused to accept it, saying it was counterfeit. I explained to her it was fresh out of an ATM and she adamantly refused to accept it. But here is the difference. I'm white. She handed the bill back to me suggesting I take it back to the bank. She took an older $20 in payment and that was the end of it.

No, the difference is that you agreed to pay with another $20 bill.
