On the one hand we have the poorly educated NZ media and the chair of the MCNZ:
Dr Curtis Walker said a small number of doctors were peddling conspiracies.
“It’s questioning the severity of Covid, it’s questioning the safety of vaccination, it’s questioning whether the whole thing is a conspiracy theory.”
On the other hand, we have the Wall Street Journal:
Are Covid vaccines riskier than advertised?
“The implication is that the risks of a COVID-19 vaccine may outweigh the benefits for certain low-risk populations, such as children, young adults and people who have recovered from COVID-19. This is especially true in regions with low levels of community spread, since the likelihood of illness depends on exposure risk.
“And while you would never know it from listening to public health officials, not a single published study has demonstrated that patients with a prior infection benefit from COVID-19 vaccination. That this isn’t readily acknowledged by the CDC or Anthony Fauci is an indication of how deeply entangled pandemic politics is in science.”
“Public health authorities are making a mistake and risking the public’s trust by not being forthcoming about the possibility of harm from certain vaccine side effects. There will be lasting consequences from mingling political partisanship and science during the management of a public-health crisis.”
Children Health Defense: A nice review of the WSJ editorial
And Fox News – Tucker Carlson interview with Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of mRNA technology.
“One of my concerns are that the government is not being transparent with us about what those risks are. And so, I am of the opinion that people have the right to decide whether to accept vaccines or not, especially since these are experimental vaccines,” Dr. Malone said, pointing to the fact the vaccines are not formally approved but instead being administered under Emergency Use Authorization.”
“This is a fundamental right having to do with clinical research ethics,” he said. “And so, my concern is that I know that there are risks. But we don’t have access to the data and the data haven’t been captured rigorously enough so that we can accurately assess those risks – And therefore … we don’t really have the information that we need to make a reasonable decision.”
He noted there is no substantive risk-benefit analysis being applied to the vaccines.
“That is one of my other objections, that we talk about these words risk-benefit analysis casually as if it is very deep science. It’s not. Normally at this stage, the CDC would have performed those risk-benefit analyses and they would be data-based and science-based. They are not right now,” said Malone.
Who is correct? Curtis Walker or Dr. Malone…. Who knows more about the mRNA inoculations…Did Walker and/or the MOH do the proper risk-benefit analysis that the CDC did not do?
Who then is spreading disinformation in the media and the public?
Should we ask the MCNZ to revoke the right to practice of Curtis Walker?
