Not ready to approve the Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine

The director of the National Center for Infectious Disease (NCId) said that  there is insufficient data to approve the Sinovac vaccine for use in Singapore.  [LINK]

I find it difficult to accept his reasoning. While he may think that he is quite capable, he should also consider he views of the experts from the countries and World Health Organization which approved the use of Sinovac vaccine.

There are concerns from the public over the use of the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, which were approved in Singapore. These concerns should also be considered, and not brushed aside.

The overwhelming evidence is that Sinovac is suitable to be used. The hurdle appears to be the approach taken by our own health authority.

I suspect that there is a flaw in our decision making process. In many countries, the political leaders will listen to the advice of the professionals and scientists, but they make the final decision.

In Singapore, the political leaders seem to take the approach of avoiding responsibility for the decision.

A more approach approach is to recognize that all the vaccines have their weaknesses and to approve the Sinovac vaccine – by following the practice of WHO and many countries.

Let the public decide on whether they wish to be vaccinated with the mRNA vaccine or with the Sinovac vaccine.

  • Harder Truths:

    It’s all about the connections. $G is part of the US Alliance against China. What the US says $G will do. Including buying their trial drugs and bypassing China or Russian Sputnik, which has a very good track record by the way.

    Guinea pigs do not have a choice on how they live, much less on how they are experimented on and no one cares when they die.

    Yes, let’s have freedom of choice: mRNA, Sinovac or Nothing. However, with the freedom to choose, one should also own the consequences of the choice made. Since all vaccine has its risk, let TKL actuary comes up with insurance insurance products for each type of vaccines, the government can then procure from the insurance companies.

    Understand Tombmasek Holdings under the Armpit of Holee Jinx has invested hundred millions of taxpayers’ money in pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Recent report has Pfizer making US$billions in 2020 from their Covid 19 vaccines. Shim must have seen a Big Fat bull frog jumping on the street which convinced shim to make the POW Chek investment. Most probably the Pharmeutical company has imposed certain conditions for investors including NOT TO USE OTHER VACCINES except Pfizer or when the current Pfizer vaccine stock which SinKapore has paid $Billions, is depleted.

    Btw Pfizer really is a very lucrative and lubricating company. SABU AND Pow ke Liao almost EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN Related to Covid 19: vaccines, cold storage refrigerators for the vaccines, reader gadgets to ascertain the testing results and last but least the blady SWAB TESTING KITS(no mention of efficacy and efficiency from 0-95%?)minus the Loong Cotton Buds that are used to POKE at the nostril, which most probably are imported from China or India!

  • Pfizer is a cash cow for Temasick, which is in dire need of income to sustain the gambling habits of the gamblers in its management.

    With the lockdown in place, its income has been greatly affected and so it must derive it from somewhere else, dio bo? Pfizer (which it has invested hundreds of millions) seems to be the best source to do so since billions around the world have been hoodwinked into receiving the jabs.

    So then it’s natural that Pfizer should not be allowed to have any competition in Sinkieland from Sinovac, dio bo?

    End of the day selling vaccines is all about business. Your koyok is damn good you will be selling a lot and the reverse will happen if your koyok isn’t good.

    People are just going by the efficacy rating for now since these vaccines have to be observed for a few years to see if they are truly safe. China’s vaccine might not have such a high efficacy percentage but give them time and they might catch up.

    The important thing now is to vaccinate as many as we can on the island. If PAP decides to continue using vaccines with the highest efficacy percentages no one will say anything. It’s when if there are side effects down the road that fingers will be pointing here and there.

    ANY GOONDU or its stooges want to challenge these facts?

    mRna is a cockroach and thief in the night that failed the test of reliability efficacy in broad daylight.

    It works only on symptoms of Covid-virus infection, not affording immunity protection.

    Fully vaccinated still get infected and become silent asymptomatic super spreader. Didn’t the Changi Airport cluster of pandemic spread illuminates this fact?

    It is touted as “efficacy” of outcome ONLY BY MAKERS of mRna vaccine and lying political cows and its paid stooges 50c per post in cyberspace.

    Just look at the waves and waves of resurging infections in mining camps in Alaska, Chile, Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Sierra Leone (Africa) disrupted mining operations (the pandemic spread continues even among inhabitants not living/working in dense economic geography).

    LATEST CASUALTY – an Australian base metal/gold explorer in Mexico is desperately selling out its operations in Mexico.

    Results of strategic reviews of Mexican assets.

    https://www.asx.com.au/asxpdf/20210610/pdf/44x8mb4gbkfqgy.pdf

    Azure Minerals will find itself saving a lot of money – by all means and costs of logistics – to vaccinate its exploration crew with mRna vaccine than to be forced into auction fire sale of over 10 years (and multiple tens of millions of US$) of exploration spending and making good discoveries in Mexico.

    Geologists working for Azure works in small team of lone effort or small geological team of 2 or 3 persons in totally remote isolated geography almost devoid of human civilisation. YET THEY GOT INFECTED by WAVES AND WAVES OF resurgence of pandemic spread – unstoppable of prevention DESPITE CLAIMS EFFICACY SUCCESS of mRna vaccine.

    THIS IS COMPLETE BULLSH*T from big pharma, political cows and their paid stooges (actually protecting their own meal ticket claiming neutrality and/or superior expertise).

    The world of pandemic spread has changed human behavior in my opinion – THIS IS BASED ON FACTS found in mining operations.

    It is now an era of SMART INFORMED people being silenced so that CUNNING LIARS AND COCKROACHES is protected of offence by truthful revelations.

    SICKENING.

    Just take a look at this news from sg.yahoo.com

    : Chile has one of the world’s highest vaccination rates. Around 75% of its 15 million residents have already received at least one dose of vaccine, and nearly 58% are completely inoculated.

    It has used nearly 23 million vaccines doses so far – 17.2 million of Sinovac’s, 4.6 million of Pfizer/BioNTech’s, and less than 1 million each of AstraZeneca’s

    Chile should have reached herd immunity by now BUT INSTEAD CONFRONTING THIS COMPLICATED potentially catastrophic outcome.

    particularly this reference to

    oxygen: AngloGoldAshanti reported these repeated cycles in Brazil, Ghana, Argentina

    And btw, Pogo gold mine, hit by repeated waves of infection, for over 6 months is in Alaska WHERE CHINA’S SINOVAC can’t be sold.

    WHY SHUT DOWN MINES OR SELL OUT IN FIRE SALES AUCTIONS AFTER DECADE OF EXPENSIVE SUCCESSFUL EXPLORATION.

    And if Sinovac alone is ineffective (your incorrect presumption), all these impaired mining operations can fly in mRna vaccine – IF THIS IS BETTER??? – to protect their mines.

    The totality of my conclusion reached here is ALL CURRENT VACCINES FAILED.

    WHERE IS MY PROOF?

    Very simple.

    Chile was hit by a big wave in April this year whilst importing mRna.
