In other news, California has "pushed back their school Covid vaccine to July 2023", which really means they have abandoned it in complete and utter defeat. No effing way they actually implement it in 2023. Congrats Californian readers!

Unfortunately my CA grandkids already got jabbed because my son felt it was “just easier”. This was after he agreed on the risks and said he wouldn’t. I’m still in shock. Wonder how he feels now, that schools won’t require?

Tell me about it. I am in Northern California. Masking continues all around me. And a few days ago a dear friend, 63 years old and in perfect health, dropped dead from blood clots following a sudden heart attack. I know two other people who have died from the jab (no proof, of course, but you will never convince me otherwise). That's three people I know who have died from the jab, and I know a fourth who within days of his shot developed extreme heart problems, required surgery, and whose health is now forever compromised. I know one person who was hospitalized from covid, and I do not know anyone who has died from it. My partner and I have said we will die before we ever accept the jab. Looking to leave this place as soon as we can. The laws, mandates and mindsets are life-crushing and soul-destroying.

I, too, know many who have suffered or died from what I believe was the jab. Strokes, falls (one friend is brain damaged from his “fall” and has been in rehab facility 8 months. The other fell into a golf course water hazard and drowned ), 38 yr old who died in his sleep, heart attacks, eye problems, hearing problems, cancer surge. A jabbed and boosted friend went incommunicado recently and I feared she was dead in her house! Luckily she had only lost her phone, not her life (yet).

So sorry to hear that. Sadly so many people felt they had to do it, because State, CDC/FDA/NIH, MSM & SM, Academia and Big Pharma sponsored "COERCION" made people feel they had to do it.

So true. We were all lied to and I feel sorry for those who were duped. But my son knew the facts and agreed that the vax is dangerous and unnecessary. Did it anyway!

My father was a world famous pathologist and expert in the Spanish flu. Before he died at 97, he warned us not to get the jab as he knew it damages the immune system. Advice from a virus expert didn’t even stop my son or his wife. But it’s done and I can only hope the kids will be okay.

"Advice from a virus expert didn’t even stop my son or his wife."

Sounds like some relatives of mine. Though they're also convinced Dr Malone is a lying opportunist who only took notes and had no scientific role in mRNA tech development, probably not even a scientist just a secretary. So that goes to show the kind of sources they used to do their research.

Though thank goodness they aren't going to jab their kids.

For my part, one of the saddest aspects of all of this is how many friends and family members I have become estranged from as a result of my "anti-vax" stance. I use the quotation marks because a) I am not against legitimate vaccines and b) the shots are not vaccines. We are on different planets; they simply will not hear anything I have to say. I was locked out of Facebook recently, I chose to stay locked out, and that has actually made things easier.

Same with me and 2 sisters. I’m over it now. I have a full life with friends—some who know my status and some who don’t. I travel and do interesting things. Marriage of 55 years. I have worked hard to stay healthy (74) snd will not comply to the government nor the screwed up SickCare system. My health status is due to ME and not any conventional docs bad medicine.

I’m sorry. I can somewhat relate. I have lost an over 20 year friendship over this because when I asked her to pray for me because my employer had just issued a vaccine mandate she accused me of being fiercely opposed to vaccines which was not true at the time whatsoever. Through my research to prepare my religious exemption request however I have become anti-VAX. The irony. It was one thing to take anti-VAX hate from strangers on social media - it was something entirely different to get this from someone who supposedly loves me. I said not one word to her when she got her vaccine. Not one. I supported her choice and I just pray that she continues to be well because she is in the obese category.

It’s crazy how people just follow the herd and don't question anything! My friends never asked why I decided to avoid the jab, knowing I have access to an expert. Most don’t even know what a spike protein is, or mRNA, or lipid nano particles. And they think it’s a vaccine.

My god.

Imo, that's on the level of knowingly letting a child molesting friend or relative watch your kids while you work because "it's just easier", even though there are other options that may be more labor-intensive but safe. You know the immediate risk, you know the possible lifelong damages, but still choose that over any inconvenience to yourself.

I was prepared to quit my job and homeschool my nieces if they pulled that shit in Ohio. And they're not even my kids. I just value their lifelong chance at good health more than my.own convenience.

I still don't trust it. they pushed it back because the EUA for 5-11 hasn't been authorized in the timeline Newson wanted to approve, and he can't force an EUA shot. I'm much more skeptical considering how deep blue this state is- they had no problem locking us up for two years, and push hatred against those who just wanted to wait and see, telling us we're going to die or at least kill grandma if we didn't get the shot. Give them time. Newsom, Pan and Weiner are all in bed with big Pharma, and Big Pharma WANTs to be in on school schedules for financial and liability reasons. I'm super happy about it being pushed, but I'm tempering my expectations. It took Pan 3 years to accomplish what he did with the other vaccines last decade-other reps in the Senate are in full support of the Covid vaccine. Teachers and District admins still scream they won't work if everyone isn't vaxxed or masked. Kids are still isolated from their peers if they are not vaxxed, sent home if they may have been in contact with others who tested positive. They'll argue Covid shots are for the benefit of kids for the long-term, especially since Pfizer has been saying they want to make it a yearly shot, like the flu. No, the fight isn't over yet. A big battle has been won, but we have to keep up the pressure.

Expand full comment

Yesterday Pan dropped the PBE ban first, and for different stated reasons. Then the whole thing got shelved and the stated reasons changed. Maybe you are right we should take Newsom and the Chronicle at face value. The fact that kids' vaccine uptake has flatlined in the state around 30% seems like the better explanation that covers both those actions.

I would never take Newsom "at face value" as I do not believe he is capable of uttering a truthful statement at this point.

My hunch is it’s a political decision.

Think?

Expand full comment

potentially, but remember- PBEs are very very tricky and hard to prove. If you've taken any vaccine previously, it negates your entire argument of a personal belief exemption. many people were denied PBEs over the last few years because of that. Perhaps Pan thought it wasn't necessary to pursue for that reason alone- I don't know his mind, but I know plenty of nurses who were fired because their PBEs were submitted, reviewed, and denied. And the flatline would change in a heartbeat if kids forced to take it for school. Something else is going on, and I think the Chron is onto it. makes sense honestly.

Peggy Hall from OC (YouTube) makes videos on how to get your exemption approved. She says it doesn't matter if you've had previous vaccines, or if you get an annual flu shot, or if you take Tylenol or consent to other pharma products. It's not supposed to matter in the eyes of the Court, according to her.

So people shouldn't let that hold them back from submitting a religious exemption request.

You don't need to be religious or belong to a church, either. You just need a "sincerely held belief" (similar to a religious belief) that the vaccine is a violation of your body.

Watch her videos. She's a riot!

Her organization provided materials my son used to get an exemption from his university (we are atheists). He is still unstuck and plans to remain so, and though he has to get tested weekly has never had a positive. His university finally dropped the masking requirement in early March, so we may get through this thing with our immune systems intact. Meanwhile, a multiply vaxxed and boosted client stuck her masked face out the door this morning (I'm a gardener) saying she'd tested positive and was sick as a dog, just wanted to say hi before she went back to her bed....

I've been mystified by the mandates for children. I keep checking and keep seeing the FDA site showing no approval means for kids. Yet kids are being vaccinated. How is that legal? Under what legal means are healthcare providers administering the vaccine? What am I missing?

Expand full comment

Legal means for healthcare providers and parents who choose it: Emergency Use Authorization. Legal means for schools and camps and theaters and such to require it? None whatsoever. Forget approval. They are violating the Americans With Disabilities act which prohibits discrimination on the basis of even “perceived” disability like a supposedly inferior immune system (see AIDS — how is this different from being unvaccinated in this context?). That schools are getting away with requiring any vaccination without an no-questions-asked, confidential, personal belief exemption is also a travesty.

Expand full comment

The removal of personal belief exemptions was the only part of the bill that mattered.

https://calmatters.org/education/k-12-education/2021/10/student-covid-vaccination-loophole/

Existing law already gives the California Department of Public Health the authority to have schools require whatever vaccine they want. Yes, there is a list of diseases, but it is only an open-ended list of suggestions of diseases for “eventual achievement of total immunization” which already includes “any other disease.”

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billCompareClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520160SB277&showamends=false

It is completely up to the CDPH to determine when, if ever, and by what means any particular immunization must take place, so they didn’t and still don’t need a change in the law to add Covid-19 vaccinations to their requirement. What they do need is FDA approval, and again the passing of this bill would not have changed that.

Expand full comment

Excellent info.

So, if the COVID "vaccine" is approved, CDPH will add COVID to the list of diseases, and require the "vaccine". But personal belief exemptions will be allowed unless future legislation removes that option.

Correct! But now that I think of it, The Pfizer vaccine is in fact approved for ages 16 and up so perhaps it could be required of 11th and 12th graders. But the news articles seem to indicate that they won’t even be doing that any sooner than “July 2023”:

Thanks for fleshing this out more. My state, VT, usually models itself after CA, e.g. climate law/policy. We effectively have a group of unelected bureaucrats establishing climate policies, including one that will drive our many small heating fuel dealers out of business. At the same time, this year's legislature has been busy mandating a referendum to enshrine abortion at any stage (including perinatal) in our constitution. "Vaccines" and "vaccine" mandates aren't getting much press, but we remain vigilant. Looks as though the legislative session will end without any damage being done. Like CA, parents can still have religious (not philosophical) objections to "vaccine" mandates for children.

A couple of questions:

Is the data sourced from UKHSA weekly covid reports? I can't seem to scroll across to the right fully.

These UKHSA reports show positive vax efficacy which seems at odds with what the raw data shows. I'm trying to find the explanation for the discrepancy - do you or anyone have any idea?

Expand full comment

Yes, the data is sourced from the weekly UKHSA Surveillance Reports. If possible, it's best to view the dashboard on a larger monitor & to click on full screen mode (bottom right button).

The recent UKHSA reports show positive VE for deaths & hospitalizations, generally, for 3rd doses vs. unvaccinated. Negative VE for cases. The recent reports do not show VE for the double (but not triple) dosed, but I am deriving those numbers and they generally show negative VE for that cohort.

Please let me know if this does not clear any confusion, happy to look into it. Perhaps post it as a comment here so as not to clutter this thread: https://inumero.substack.com/p/uk-reports-new-dashboard?r=tv61s&s=w&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web

Thank you that's really helpful! I posed the same question elsewhere and got this reply:

Expand full comment

This data, along with so many other data points you've shared, fits the exact pattern you find when you compare different nations by vaccination rates.

The countries with very low vaccination rates manage to drive R0 below 1 and now seem to experience herd immunity, at least until some drastically different variant manages to evolve.

On the other hand, mass vaccination interferes with the development of effective broad sterilizing immunity against variants that deviate from the Wuhan spike protein. Thus as a result the population remains susceptible to waves of reinfection.

The worst off are the places that widely administered three shots before Omicron showed up. Scotland in particular seems to be a good example. You end up with a large demographic of people who just get continually reinfected or suffer from chronic infections.

I also had two relatives who are immune compromised who got the vax and got very sick with covid afterward. One has CLL and is going downhill fast after being stable for 10 years.

I'm irate that my young relatives have been forced to get three of these shots now to continue with college or remain employed in healthcare. 😡 😡 😡
