Reasons why my 6 month old baby was vaccinated for #COVID19 today, a thread by a mom and a doctor.

Read on...🧵

1. Safety: The Moderna vaccine was tested on over 11 000 kids and they found no 'red flag' side effects. The usual was seen like a sore limb or fussing/crying. But even more serious side effects in older age groups, like Myocarditis, was not found in under 5 yrs old

2. Efficacy: The vaccine isn't as effective against the new variants, it's true. However in the 6mo - 2 yrs group, it had about 51% efficacy against Omicron variants. That's similar to some years of the flu vaccine & we know the flu vax helps reduce severity & spread

How long is #COVID19 infectious? #COVID19infectionpersistence Those with SARS-CoV-2 are often advised to isolate for only a few days. But evidence is mounting that some people can continue to pass on the virus for much longer.…

In May, MOH, Dr. Nesthurai, Windsor-Essex @TheWECHU with @twpiggott @mustafahirji requested a mask mandate, for indoors in public buildings, from the CMOH Dr. Kieran Moore. @fordnation he refused.
@WRHospital ER waits have been hours often > 6h-8h since. Why haven't you acted?
Windsor has poor vaccine uptake in some neighbourhoods & age groups.
Only 42% of children < 12 yrs had 1 vaccine dose, just 31% dose 2 (ONT avg 41%).
3rd doses: 52% of Windsor-Essex (ONT avg 50%): 58%, ages 50-59 ONT avg (63%), 74% age 60-69% (ONT avg 79%)…
1 of Dr. Nesthurai's concerns was our healthcare system. As of July 12, there were 90 inpatients in Windsor-Essex with suspected/confirmed #COVID19 & hospital bed occupancy was at 112% capacity?
@fordnation @SylviaJonesMPP What does 112% mean = hallways, stuck in ERs for days? Image

@WGRZ/@TEGNA anchor Michael Wooten @wgrzMichael this week disclosed (and denied) a potential conflict of interest arising from the fact it was revealed @pfizer executive Lidia Fonseca sits on the board of @WGRZ owner @TEGNA.

Is TEGNA advertising the vaccine?🧵
I’d like to introduce a very important point to this discussion of @WGRZ’s potential conflict of interest: advertising.

Is @WGRZ and @TEGNA advertising the COVID-19 vaccine, specifically the Pfizer vaccine, in their coverage?
PRODUCT PLACEMENT: The practice of inserting branded products into programming in exchange for fees or other considerations.

CLASSIC PLACEMENT: merely requiring a shot of the product at some point during the program.

Going to get a #COVID19Vaccine after having #Covid19MB? Good idea, but wait until you are feeling better. There is no need to rush, but please don’t wait too long either. Learn more ⬇️ (1/10)
With more and more #COVID19 infections showing up across Manitoba due to Omicron, people are asking when they should get vaccinated after having a COVID infection. (2/10)
First and foremost, please don’t come to a vaccine clinic if you are still sick. It’s critical that you first complete all isolation requirements, that your symptoms have resolved and that you are no longer infectious. (3/10)

I have been loving this movie @EncantoMovie so I’m going to try a thread here on how the people in the movie could represent groups during this pandemic. Feel free to add your own thoughts!
Mirabel: Medical students. Constantly trying to think outside the box and find innovative solutions to any and every problem that comes up in this pandemic.
Luisa: ER docs, ICU docs, nurses, really all HCW carrying the weight of this pandemic in so many ways. Keeping a brave face while taking care of sick patients, quarantining from family to prevent bringing the virus home, and never feeling like it’s enough. No cracks no breaks.

So let's talk about the #COVID19Vaccine and #Booster based on the evidence, including #death rates.* This data looks at non-vaccinated vs vaccinated (per dose) and booster (separate study). Links to the evidence are posted at the end of this thread.
Note before starting:

The ASMR (age-standardized mortality rate,) is a unit that compensates for differences between age groups. This is because mortality changes over age band, so it can be misleading not to adjust.
The use of 'person-years' is a unit designed to make sense of the number of people and time under an illness, i.e a measure of incidence and duration. The data used in the first study uses ASMR/100,000 person-years.

BREAKING: Johnson & Johnson has granted a license to South Africa's Aspen Pharmacare to manufacture an Aspen-branded version of the J&J #COVID19vaccine for distribution in Africa. #VaccineApartheid #COVID19
The agreement is the result of several months of negotiations & investment, says WTO's Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. She says WTO is holding periodic meetings with #COVID19 vaccine manufacturers & hopes agreement will be a step to decentralise #COVID19vaccine production globally.
Okonjo-Iweala says the #Omicron is another reason why #TRIPSwaiver discussions must be concluded speedily. This follows the WTO's decision to cancel its recent ministerial meeting following the variant's discovery.

The latest #COVID19vaccine myth that has re-appeared is a claim linking vaccination to sudden cardiac arrest (#SCA) in athletes.

The reality is there is no demonstrated link between the vaccine & SCA in athletes.

In fact, SCA in athletes is not a new phenomenon.
For well over a decade I have taught a class on cardiology & we dedicate an entire lecture to SCA in high performance athletes.

Each year I am able to update the lecture with the latest high profile SCA case. We have discussed Jiří Fischer, Fabrice Muamba, & Jay Bouwmeester.
SCA in high performance athletes predates the COVID19 vaccine.

In a 2012 study it was reported that on average, an athlete dies from sudden cardiac arrest every 2-3 days in the US. The rates are similar in other countries.…

1. [Thread] Should pregnant people get the #COVID19 #vaccine? And what about people who are planning on having a baby?

Short answer: Yes.

@KeMohale spoke to @priyasomapillay to find out how the jabs protect pregnant women and their babies.
2. @priyasomapillay says pregnant people are more likely to get very sick from #COVID19. That means a higher chance of ending up in hospital or needing a ventilator.

That’s why it’s important for them to get a COVID jab.
3. Is it safe for #pregnant people to get a #COVID19vaccine?

@CDCgov data shows there isn’t a difference in the #sideeffects pregnant people and those who are not pregnant experience. The most common reactions people have are fever and arm pain.…

1/ After a year of work, our paper on mRNA Degradation is finally out!

2/ A year ago I was approached with a unique and exciting opportunity: I was asked to help out with setting a Kaggle Open Vaccine competition, where the goal would be to come up with a Machine Learning model for the stability of RNA molecules.
3/ This is of a pressing importance for the development of the mRNA vaccines. The task seemed a bit daunting, since I have had no prior experience with RNA or Biophysics, but wanted to help out any way I could.

[THREAD] This week, I reported for @thecontinent_ that South Africa's Aspen Pharmacare had been forced to destroy 30-million #COVID19vaccine doses. Aren’t these the same doses binned in the US after problems at J&J’s Emergent plant there?
2/5 No, these 30m #COVID19Vaccine doses destroyed in South Africa are not the same as those binned in the US, says head of African Vaccine Distribution Alliance Dr Ayoade Olatunbosun-Alakija, who revealed this at a WHO presser. Here’s part of that audio transcript:
3/5 The African Vaccine Distribution Alliance has been working to support government rollouts. Still, there is a lack of public transparency, Olatunbosun-Alakija says, re: pretty much anything about #COVID19 vaccine production & available supply from pharmaceutical companies.

Currently approved #COVID19vaccines protect from the most acute consequence of this disease: hospitalisation and death. As many people as possible should be fully vaccinated. #EMAPresser
The evidence is becoming clearer on the need to consider additional vaccine doses for people who may poorly respond to #COVID19 vaccination, such as those with severely weakened immune systems or some elderly patients. #EMAPresser

Imagine there were someone wandering your neighborhood trying to harm your neighbors and your family, but "only" killed 1 out of 100 but put many, many in the hospital and lots of others had lasting and problematic long-term problems as a result of their run-in, you 1/7
would not let that stand. You'd do what you could to protect your family, your neighbors and yourself.

If you aren't vaccinated, you've effectively unlocked your door and opened it to this murderer.

If you aren't wearing a mask *and* you are unvaccinated, you are leading 2/7
the killer straight to your neighbor's house. You don’t know if their door is locked; depends on a vaccine status, but you have no way of knowing until you’re there. Hope they don't have kids under 12 or have anybody immuno-compromised. 3/7
