Official information provided by the UK
While it has some important information, I believe it doesn’t provide sufficient information for the People to provide informed consent. Below is information that I believe should be provided in the official information:
FIRST, THAT THE VIRUS HAS BARELY KILLED ANY ADDITIONAL PEOPLE IN SWEDEN
My article in The Australian, 30 December 2020. [And a letter to the editor on 1 January 2021]
SECOND, THAT THE VACCINE MIGHT BE HELPFUL FOR THOSE OVER 75, BEING UNNECESSARY FOR MOST OF THE REST
FEWER PEOPLE BELOW 64 HAVE DIED IN SWEDEN THIS YEAR THAN IN THE AVERAGE YEAR – THIS MEANS PEOPLE BELOW 75 MOSTLY DON’T NEED THE VACCINE.
A researcher thinks that those over 60 might also benefit although data that I’ve provided above doesn’t support such a view:
I don’t agree with 60 – more details:
CHILDREN ARE PARTICULARLY IMMUNE
And it is clear that “the vast majority are at less risk from this virus than from flu”
THIRD, THOSE WHO HAVE HAD THE DISEASE DO NOT NEED THE VACCINE
Those who’ve had the disease have the best possible immunity. They don’t need it at all.
A summary flow chart:
Moreover, the vaccine doesn’t increase immunity for those who’ve already had the virus:
FOURTH, THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS PROVIDED INDEMNITY TO COMPANIES FROM ANY LIABILITY
FIFTH, THAT THERE ARE SOME IDENTIFIED SIDE EFFECTS BUT THESE ARE NOT VERY SERIOUS
But here’s something important: Peter Doshi: Pfizer and Moderna’s “95% effective” vaccines—we need more details and the raw data
There are two other pieces of info, potentially not so reliable, that also need to be addressed:
a) Open Letter to the Swedish Prime Minister and Swedish Public Health Director by Dr. Sanna Ehdin, 23 December 2020
b) Claims by Dr David Martin made in this video at 1 hour 42 minutes.
NOTE: Some people think these are excessive: French Expert Shocked By Number Of Adverse Reactions To COVID-19 Vaccine.
There are apparently issues with polyethylene glycol (PEG) that is found in the vaccines. Testing for allergy to PEG can reduce adverse reactions (Source).
SIXTH, THERE COULD BE LONG TERM HARMS BUT THESE ARE NOT YET KNOWN
SEVENTH, THERE ARE SOME REASONS TO SUGGEST A FLU VACCINE MIGHT INCREASE RISK OF COVID
“Christian Wehenkel, in the journal PeerJ (1 October 2020), studied 26 European countries and found a strong correlation (r = 0.62) between flu jab uptake and Covid deaths in older people” [Source]
