Israel's Coronavirus Czar Says It's Time To Prepare For A Fourth COVID Vaccine Dose
When the the first COVID vaccine first came out, government health authorities and pharmaceutical companies were promoting it the solution that would return the world to what it was prior to the pandemic. That it would likely make COVID 'go away' and this was the way to 'beat the virus.' Other scientists suggested that we'd have to learn to live with COVID and the new strains that emerge from it.
Here in 2021, we're seeing that living with it seemed to be correct, and that an honest and transparent approach to dealing with the virus was not well introduced to the public.
A surge of cases in Israel recently had the government announce that, in order to keep vaccine passports or what they call the "green pass" up to date, a third shot will be required. Since, more than 2.5 million Israelis have already received a third dose. Now however, the country's coronavirus czar, Dr. Salman Zarka, is already promoting the potential of a fourth dose according to a report by the Times of Israel.
It seems that if we learn the lessons from the fourth wave, we must consider the (possibility of subsequent) waves with the new variants, such as the new one from South America...And thinking about this and the waning of the vaccines and the antibodies, it seems every few months - it could be once a year or five or six months - we'll need another shot.
Given the waning immunity that we see with COVID vaccines, we have to open up the possibility that in the near future multiple countries may require a COVID shot every 6 months, or perhaps just once a year, to keep vaccine passes up to date.
All of this comes despite insight from countless doctors and scientists around the world suggesting that treatment, and treatment options, have been the thing to focus on since the start. Most of these doctors have remained unheard due to censorship and smear campaigns by legacy media.
We've seen government health authorities and mainstream media present one perspective, while ignoring evidence that calls into question the collateral damage COVID measures cause in attempting to combat the pandemic. These include lockdowns, mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and vaccine passports.
Another topic only just now getting some light it natural immunity. Multiple studies have been showing natural immunity to be quite robust, even in comparison to the vaccine. Yet still, natural immunity is not an option on vaccine passports - why?
In fact a large pre-print of a recent study out of Israel has found that those who have been previously infected with COVID acquire more protection to variants than those who are fully vaccinated. It's one of multiple that's now emerging but there are conflicting papers that have been published on this subject throughout the pandemic.
leading up to vaccine rollout, recall the sentiment around vaccines. Citizens around the world were not notified that vaccines, especially fast mutating viruses, have fairly low efficacy when it comes to stopping transmission. When the vaccines were in the development state, a recent consensus statement from a group of renowned infectious disease clinicians observed the following:
Vaccine programs have proven il-suited to the fast-changing viruses underlying these illnesses, with efficacy ranging from 19% to 54% in the past few years.
When the first two doses of COVID vaccines were being rolled out, we were told that the vaccines had approximately "a 95% efficacy." It turns out that this number represented the relative risk reduction (RRR), not the absolute risk reduction. In epidemiology, Absolute Risk Reduction is the most useful way of presenting research results to help your decision-making. You can read more about that here.
Prior to COVID, coronaviruses and respiratory viruses alone killed tens of millions of people every single year. Hospitals around the world have been overwhelmed as well. In 2017, 50 percent of hospitals in Ontario, Canada were over capacity. Why was nothing done to increase capacity to handle something like a pandemic?
Some of Ontario's biggest hospitals were filled beyond 100 per cent occupancy nearly every day in the first half of 2019. The issues that COVID has brought to light are, in my opinion, nothing too far out of the ordinary and have always been here, and governments have not attempted to solve them.
Why does mainstream media continue to ignore all of the science and evidence that warrants freedom of choice and a treatment approach? Why are those who are hesitant constantly labelled as "anti-vaccine conspiracy theorists?"
One of writers at The Pulse, Dr. Madhava Setty, MD, wrote an article addressing many concerns that vaccine hesitant people have. I also published one in April that you can access here if you're interested.
We the people are being ignored, unheard and unacknowledged. We are in an abusive, gaslight filled, relationship with government. Simultaneously we are losing certain rights and freedoms we enjoyed prior to the pandemic under the claim that these measures are "good for the whole." We've seen this happen before, 9/11 for example, as we saw a huge increase in mass surveillance.
I'll leave you with this thought provoking quote from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.
As authoritarianism spreads, as emergency laws proliferate, as we sacrifice our rights, we also sacrifice our capability to arrest the slide into a less liberal and less free world. Do you truly believe that when the first wave, this second wave, the 16th wave of the coronavirus is a long forgotten memory, that these capabilities will not be kept? -
