Coronamonomania Lives Forever, Part 211

By May 15, 2023Commentary

Is there anyone on the planet who doesn’t yet realize that the CV-19 vaccines lose effectiveness against infection pretty quickly and also have diminishing protection against even serious disease within a year or so?  This meta-review of studies on the waning effectiveness issue would therefore seem redundant, but verifies that two doses are at best 20% effective against infection within 6 months after last dose, and 30% within 9 months after a booster dose.   (JAMA Article)

Another mortality-related study looked at whether people treated at the VA had different total death rates than the general population.  The underlying theory was that since veterans have access to comprehensive free care they might have had lower death rates.  After adjusting for appropriate factors, death rates were in fact identical, suggesting that rates for CV-19 deaths and other deaths were also similar in the two groups.  We also see again that there were more excess deaths than are accounted for by CV-19 alone.  (JAMA Study)

If you think that getting vaxed over and over and over and over is good, your research is likely going to pimp that belief, even when when your actual study says the opposite.  This meta-review of studies on booster effectiveness finds they are basically worthless after six months, but then says this means people should just keep getting boosted.  (SSRN Paper)


Another side effect which appears linked to the vax is issues with blockage in the blood vessels around the eye.  But before you get too excited, the same effect occurs after CV-19 infection, as you might expect, since the vax are just a portion of the virus genome.  (Nature Study)

And for persons with epilepsy, a meta-analysis suggests that the vaccines create a roughly five percent increased risk of having seizure in the period following vaccination.  (Medrxiv Paper)

You don’t need research to know that children were devastated by the response to the epidemic, although CV-19 posed little risk to them.  This study reviewed 53 pieces of research on child and adolescent mental health during the epidemic and found evidence of increases in depression and anxiety.  (JAMA Article)

And this study from the US confirms that suicide-related visits to the ER involving children increased substantially during the epidemic, and the length of associated stay in the ER or hospital also increased.  (Medrxiv Paper)

In the course of trying to figure out why some people didn’t get infected or have serious disease from CV-19, a number of other vaccine types were examined, including the one for tuberculosis.  This research suggests that having a tuberculosis vaccine did not lower the risk of CV-19 disease.  (JAMA Article)

This study from Switzerland is nominally about the development of an immune response in children and adolescents, among whom over 95% had some response from infection or vax by 2023. But the real finding is that only one adolescent out of the entire group of children had a hospitalization and that for less than 24 hours.  CV-19 is no threat to children.  (Medrxiv Paper)
