Reports from the Frontline
Reports about frontline health workers reluctance to have a Covid-19 vaccine raise an interesting question. Do they trust big pharma and government more than their own experience?
There's so much conflicting information about the Covid-19 vaccines that it is hard to know what to believe.
Some experts say it is perfectly safe while others are raising concerns. It's clear there are many adverse reactions to the various vaccines with some deaths attributed to them.
Like so much surrounding Corona mania it is difficult to know what to believe.
We have been fed so much nonsense for so long, most of it passing unquestioned by public or media, that the purveyors of bovine excrement feel all powerful.
Personally, I am deeply sceptical about the vaccines. Their rapid development and release means they cannot have undergone the same testing process as other vaccines.
This conclusion is made by virtue of the fact that before these treatments, the fastest vaccine development and release was 4 years. These were less than 12 months.
A government minister told me that these vaccines don't stop you getting Covid-19, they just minimise symptoms and potential consequences. They also told me you can still pass it on.
Then this morning, I heard they do prevent contagion and you cannot pass it on.
With so many agendas running, it is impossible to ascertain the truth.
However there is one interesting statistic that I read today in the Epoch Times.
According to a Gallup poll in the United States, 51 percent of health care workers and first responders polled in December were unconvinced of the merits of getting vaccinated, even if the vaccine “was free, available, FDA approved and 90% effective.”
This is not unique to the USA either.
In early March, there were reports that only half of the nursing staff in Switzerland’s medical sector, only 30 percent of the staff at one German group care-home operator, and around 50 percent of the health workers in French care homes were willing to be vaccinated.
It's a similar story in India where one report stated:
Since India started administering the second vaccine dose two weeks ago, half of the frontline workers and nearly 40 percent of healthcare workers have not shown up.
In Canada, there was an anecdotal television report that many long-term-care workers in Montreal are “flat-out refusing” to be inoculated.
“I’m definitely not an anti-vaxxer. I get the flu shot every year, so I have nothing against vaccines," Muhanna told CTV in an interview.
What she needs to make a clear-headed decision, she said, are “good, trusted” answers to the many questions she and her co-workers have, since “it’s all happened so fast.
She said many of her fellow workers are “flat-out refusing” to be inoculated.
It's clear that many health care workers have questions. Principle among them is should they believe the government and big pharma or their own instincts and experience?
We know that the pharmaceutical companies stand to make hundreds of billions of dollars from this vaccination rollout. We also know that governments and their 'experts' have been deceptive and outright dishonest on many occasions in respect to coronavirus.
We have been told travel restrictions don't work and then they do. Masks are ineffective but now we should wear two of them. Death tolls have been exaggerated and causes of death falsified. I could go on but the essential message is the same.
Everything surround Covid-19 has been hijacked for political benefit.
As sentient human beings, we can all make decisions for ourselves. That means we should assess the risk attached to getting vaccinated or not, just like we assess the risk of every other aspect of our lives.
What is appropriate and reasonable for some, will be an imposition or unnecessary step for others.
Without tempting fate, I consider myself a relatively low risk prospect of having a severe reaction to Covid-19 should I catch it ( if i haven't already). That's why I'll be waiting to see how the global response is over the next twelve months before I'll even consider getting the Covid jab.
