The benefits of the Covid-19 vaccine?

What is the people to believe as to the benefits of the vaccine?

The problem is that all the major parties, including the vaccine companies, mainstream newspapers, governments, and experts, all have their own agendas other than the health of the people, and are therefore conflicted and cannot be relied upon to tell the whole truth.

In addition to trying to reduce infections, the vaccine companies need to make a profit. As such, they have to show that their products are highly effective in preventing infection as otherwise, uptake will be low. Therefore, one would have to expect that they will do their utmost to demonstrate high efficacy of the vaccine.

Most mainstream newspapers are fully or partially owned by big businesses. Their clients are other businesses who want people to buy their products. It is thus in the interest of the newspapers that people get vaccinated and get on with the economy as a weak economy means less money for advertisements. So, although mainstream newspapers will always claim editorial independence, at the end of the day, they “bow to the needs of advertisers” and their owners, contrary to what the CEO of a newspaper who took umbrage at a reporter who asked about this issue, said. So, one would be hard put to find an article that says that we do not need a vaccine to exit this pandemic or that the efficacy of the vaccine is so low that it is redundant.

As to governments, especially those whose first priority is business, obviously they would want the population to be vaccinated so that the economy can pick up and thus will do its utmost to defend the benefits of the vaccine.

Finally, experts. Many experts are experts only if they serve the needs of the powers-that-be, otherwise they will find themselves without a job.

So, all four major players in the vaccine saga have a vested interest in purporting that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risk, and will downplay or ignore all evidence that show otherwise. What then is the people, who are the guinea pigs in this experiment, to believe?

Interestingly, the ST published two articles yesterday that can help us make up our minds.

The first is a study of the real life effectiveness of the vaccine based on data collected in Israel. Among other claims, it says that the Pfizer vaccine offers a protection of 96.5% fourteen days after the second dose and 57.7% between seven and fourteen days after the first dose. Before anyone believe these claims, they ought to be aware that there is a pact between the Israeli government and Pfizer – Pfizer will fast forward the supply of vaccine to Israel and in return it gets to use the data from the vaccination for research, which is a euphemism for marketing. Of note is that citizens of Israel have brought the matter to the Supreme Court and the International Criminal Court alleging that the government is falsifying data and subjecting citizens to a human experiment without proper consent.

The second article relates to the TTSH cluster. In claiming that the vaccine reduces serious consequences, MOH’s director of medical services Kenneth Mak said that, “Of those not protected by vaccination, seven of the 20 had need of oxygen therapy”. In that statement, he had inadvertently revealed that of the 40 cases in the cluster, 20 are not vaccinated. In other words, half the cases are vaccinated and half are not. Thus, the chances of catching the virus is no different whether one is vaccinated or not, ie, the efficacy is ZERO!

So, is the efficacy of the vaccine 57.7% effective after the first dose and 96.5% after the second dose as claimed in the Israeli study or 0% as shown in the TTSH cluster?

My advise is to take the words of people with vested interest with a big pinch of salt.

    @ FSF

    VACCINATED OR NOT VACCINATED, it is wait for your turn to be infected. Random uncontrolled experiment of reality events shows this up. Out of 4 community cases recently, two were fully vaccinated ONLY RECENTLY.

    The so-called efficacy claims turns up dud – it hides asymptomatic infections and silently add to the transmission spread to the rest of the community.

    Efficacy is a much hackneyed word just like “help” (in GST help the poor asserted claims) and “exercise” for street card board collectors – at least they got additional searing sunshine to burn up their sorely-damaged skin in old age.

    In this scenario, let’s say those 20 infected cases who are not vaccinated are given vitamin jabs & we compare vs those infected 20 who are fully vaccinated with the gene therapy mRNA synthetic vaccine & we get the same efficacy.

    If I am a frontline staff & health status OK it is better to request for a vitamin jab with nil adverse side effects than the synthetic vaccine which put me at risk of dying or severe injury from severe adverse reactions to the Covid vaccine!

    It is better to be safe than sorry!

  • Harder Truths:

    People have to stomach the truth that the ‘vaccines’ are bogus. They are trail drugs used to make huge profits for the big pharma corporations. People are being used as Guinea Pigs for totally radical gene editing therapy, using modified RNA to change your basic DNA.

    The biological changes on you, your children and your future generations will be permanent with no way to reverse the process. These people are playing with nature – just like the creators of the COVID thought they were so smart. The ‘cure’ is worse than the disease.

    We still do not know the depths of foolishness the regime will resort to – absolute power corrupts absolutely. There is nothing they will not sacrifice to get their way – this means you. And if you are not able to survive – then no problem. There are migrants waiting to come in from everywhere to replace you.

    All it takes is one catastrophe such as this disease (or the ‘cure’) to wipe out your life as you know it. You have to fight for what you have – because the regime does not give a sh*t if you live or die.

  • Vaccine:

    Is it possible for the PCR test to have mistaken the spike protein in those fully vaccinated to be the virus itself and hence the positive result? Were they tested because they were symptomatic or simply because they were in close contact with infected cases? Could it be a case of “mistaken identity?”

  • Pfizer trial is joke:

    Pfizer did the trials in US without independent third party. Pfizer decides how the test is carried out (of course in a way that favours its results) and Pfizer collects and massages and releases the test results. There is no transparency at all. No mainstream western media question the credibility of its trial in US, I guess only independent media which you normally won’t know.

    Let’s observe next 12 months if Pfizer is really effective. But I won’t take any mRNA vaccine because the long term side effects is unknown and severe side effects do happen.

  • Traditional Method Vaccine:

    Both Sinovac and Sinopharm have just been approved. Traditional method does not have long term side effects and hardly any side effects reported in its usage in central and South America, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and Africa.

    I wait for Singapore import sinopharm.

  • opposition dude:

    Not only is it the vaccine to be taken with a Singapore sized grain of salt the usual “analysts” that PAP “interviews” over various issues must also be subjected to the same treatment.

    Remember something like the following below?

    Some new policy when introduced or an existing policy that is tweaked is automatically “Good for the people because of so and so reason” from an analyst or two.

    Before last year’s GE, analysts were already talking about voters rewarding PAP with a high vote share simply because of past performance. Was having a good laugh at all these dolts going by theory and trying to psycho voters to vote PAP ha ha ha ha ha!

    For now there are 4 positive Covid cases at Changi Airport. Three are fully vaccinated!

    Am I correct to say that the vaccine is only 25% effective vs Covid virus?

    For now just reading the cluster report of 8 cases at Pasir Panjang Terminal involving the fully vaccinated cases mentioned are 4 who are tested Covid positive! The other 4 linked cases vaccination status not stated, presumably not vaccinated.

    The efficacy of Covid vaccine is Zero!

    Hope that MOH will do an objective efficacy analysis of the approved Covid vaccine & report the findings ASAP!

  • Henry:

    When efficacy is under pressure, they will say the vaccine will reduce the effects of the symptom (without any study to back it up). If one’s immune system is weak, how can a vaccine boost the immune system and in turn reduce the effects of the symptom? Vaccines are not made to boost the immune system. They are just there to get a response from one’s immune system.

    I am in agreement with you.

    Especially when the governments are evidently in the same bed acting in concert spilling half-truths and churning out wayang kulit to “persuade” the dafts.

    I hate to admit this but deep down inside, I sometimes hope the new variant would cause a full-blown pandemic the scale of the initial Wuhan, so that the dafts can finally wake up before the LEEders sink the gradually sinking Sinkieland with their constant propaganda BS and wayang-kulits.

    For those who are all for being vaccinated, good for them. I respect their determination to be the lab rats for some pharma companies.

    There is really no right or wrong when it comes to the vaccine.

    My uncle, a multimillionaire from Shanghai recently returned to SG from Kun Ming after >1 years stucked there since 2019. He used to travelled on street of BJ & SH with local police escort whenever he need to move fast.

    We talked about vaccines and asked whether he took it while in CN. He said no, oh, forgot to mention he is a 100% supporter of CCP. :D

    We purposely ask him why not? He said need to take Q number, cannot jump Q… :DDD

    So, he returned to SG in 1st class flight and take Pfizer. :DDD

    My heart was crying when i heard that… laugh until cry…

    Yes indeed, a quarter of mankind did volunteer to be lab rats.
    Very soon it will be half of mankind.
    The richer and more informed half.
    The poorer half in Africa do not even get a chance, thus will inherit the Earth as the lab rats die of within months.

    And Pfizer recognised in China? You say leh? Naive dumb.
    Vaccines passport only recognise green, yellow and red, not which brand!

    With enough $$$ and influence, even took vaccines or not is not the important point lah. Why you think he want to spend time and money instead of CCP vaccines? Those he rubbed shoulder with, their bosses were getting the imported ang mo vacc instead of MIC vacc… :DDD

    Soon we will see hackers able to hack the vaccines passports and provide a lucrative black market!

    Have all the PAP MPs, junior and senior ministers in Parliament taken the jab?

    All the time what I hear from them is take the vaccine, take the vaccine. Two shots not enough take another shot.

    Those who don’t take the shot will die faster then those who do if infected9 and more painful death.

    My expectation of the covid-19 vaccine is very simple. To immune and cure me of the covid-19 virus. Without life-threatening side-effects.

    Not to die a less painful death. If the PAP vaccine optimists are so sure of the effective vaccine why do these MPs have to cancel meet-the-people session starting from 8 May to the 30th?
