This morning, the German Federal Ministry of Health posted a stunning tweet, admitting that 1 out of every 5,000 Covid jabs cause “serious side effects.”
This figure is likely a sharp underestimate, given the fact that side effect reporting systems for drugs and vaccines are largely voluntary.
Nonetheless, it implies that almost 300,000 Americans and Europeans have suffered severe side effects after receiving mRNA shots from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna. (It is unclear whether the German side effect estimate applied to Covid vaccines from India and China, which use older technologies and are largely unused in wealthier countries, aside from China.)
If you can’t trust the Bundesgesundheitsministerium, who can you trust?)
Health authorities now acknowledge that the mRNA vaccines do not stop Covid infection or transmission and likely have no preventative value against the Omicron variant within months. Thus their risk-benefit profile appears increasingly absurd, especially because Omicron is notably less dangerous than earlier Covid variants to everyone, vaccinated or not.
These Covid jabs are not cancer drugs, where patients and physicians will tolerate severe side effects. They are not even influenza jabs – at this point they are even less effective and far more dangerous.
The fact that the effectiveness of the mRNA shots is measured in weeks against Omicron is merely the last straw against them. Even if they worked worked long-term, regulators would likely have already pulled from the market any other product that caused this much damage for an illness that is little more than a cold for most healthy people.
At the least, regulators should have severely limited use of the Covid shots by adding a “black-box warning” of their risks and restricting use to elderly people and those with severe comorbidities.
Finally, because these “vaccines” do not have any chance of producing population-level immunity, their risk and benefit should be evaluated individually rather than for large groups of people. In other words, they should only be available by physician prescription, not offered to anyone who wants them.
Taking any of these steps would mean admitting that the great mRNA experiment has failed completely, so don’t expect to see them anytime soon. Still, the German admisssion today marks at least a small – and long overdue – step toward honesty from public health authorities on the Covid jabs.
