1/ THREAD - Countries with annual ivermectin treatment showing extremely low cases & deaths despite having very low vaccination rates.

IVM has been used to treat River Blindness via the African Program for Onchocerciasis Control (APOC) & includes 19 countries in Africa...
2/ The APOC program started in 1995 and people were given 1 (most countries) or 2 doses of Ivermectin per year. The APOC program closed at the end of 2015 and transitioned to the Community Directed Treatment with Ivermectin (CDTI) program. In 2017 more than 145M ppl were treated.
3/ I have compared 3 sets of countries. APOC countries, the rest of Africa and the most vaccinated countries + USA, UK and Canada.


This first set of charts shows Cumulative Cases / Million.

📢 The first large scale UK data on the safety of #CovidVaccine in #pregnancy is out today from @UKHSA !

In people giving birth between January and August, 24,759 of whom were vaccinated...

🗝️ No difference in stillbirth rate between vaccinated and unvaccinated... 1/
🗝️ No difference in babies with low birthweight between vaccinated and unvaccinated... 2/
🗝️ Preterm births occurred at a rate of 6.51% in vaccinated people and 5.99% in unvaccinated people.

This small difference is likely to be because at this time vaccinated people were more likely to be older and have underlying health conditions. 3/

Short thread on this table which is shared widely and leads to the (false) conclusion that a heterologous boost with 2xPfizer/1xModerna is superior to a homologous boost with 3xPfizer. Image
1. The moderna booster given in this study was a 100ug dose whereas the approved moderna booster is only a 50ug dose, which would lead to somewhat lower antibody levels. Therefore the difference would be even smaller.
2. Even if the difference between heterologous and homologous booster would hold for the 50ug Moderna dose, the difference is not relevant. Here is why: I assume (and I apologize if this assumption is wrong) that many people look at that table and think if 2xPfizer/1xmoderna

Quasi il 75% della popolazione italiana vaccinata. È un buon risultato, ma non sufficiente per chiudere questa triste emergenza.
1) Il 15% di suscettibili a rischio ospedalizzazione/terapia intensiva è numericamente significativo per saturare il sistema sanitario
2) Mancano 1/n
risorse umane per poter ampliare il SSN e formare nuovi intensivisti richiede anni.
3) Un vaccino imperfetto non blocca la circolazione del virus con il rischio di mutazioni più contagiose e resistenti all'attuale vaccino (difficile che siano più mortali direttamente)
4) Da quando è stato annunciato il vaccino che sappiamo come l'efficacia segua un gradiente descrescente dal 6 mese. Quindi non è una novità che sarà necessario continuare oltre la doppia dose. 3/n

When is the best time in #pregnancy to get the #CovidVaccine?


Two studies came out this week that tackle the question. And (bonus!) which vaccine to go for...

But first! I should say that all the *safety* data says that it's equally safe to get the vaccine in any trimester.

So the question here is really when it's most *protective* to get the vaccine.

Links to safety data here... 2/…
The first study, from @EdlowLab, looked at 158 people vaccinated in pregnancy, broken down by vaccine type and trimester of vaccination. 3/…

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity

The BMJ recently published an “exposé” of #CovidVaccine by @thackerpd alleging patient unblinding, data falsification, and other wrongdoing by a subcontractor. It was a highly biased story embraced by antivaxxers. WTF happened to @bmj_latest?…
And just this morning on the website of one of one of the "Disinformation Dozen," we see Peter Doshi's testimony and Paul Thacker's article touted as evidence that we should doubt the Pfizer vaccine. If this happens regularly, @bmj_latest, you are definitely doing it very wrong.
Anyway, for those of you who saw my post on @ScienceBasedMed last week, note that the new post is updated and substantially revised.😉

💡BEST. VIDEO. ALL. YEAR. Please share with friends how the mRNA vaccine works to fight the coronavirus.

📌NOTA BENE—The mRNA never interacts with your DNA 🧬. #vaccinate

(Special thanks to the Vaccine Makers Project @vaccinemakers of @ChildrensPhila). #COVID19
2) This Family Guy video explainer is more rudimentary but also very effective vaccine explainer. Thx @SethMacFarlane
3) The other BEST mRNA vaccine explainer video is this amazing epic one by @ScientistSwanda. Really good technical details that’s easy to understand.

You know, @bmj_latest, when two of the biggest antivax propaganda sites in the world are loudly touting a badly sourced, conspiracy mongering bit of "investigational journalism" you commissioned from crank @thackerpd, you are doing it wrong and spreading antivax disinformation.
When one of your @bmj_latest editors, Peter Doshi, has been at least antivax-adjacent for years and years and spreading antivax nonsense about #CovidVaccine, you're doing it wrong.…
When antivaxxer RFK Jr. loves both @thackerpd and Peter Doshi, you're doing it wrong.…

Knepigheterna med #CovidVaccine

"1. Vaccinet är effektivt för att skydda mot smitta, men samtidigt skyddar det inte mot smitta om man träffar ovaccinerade."
"2. Vaccinet är inte färdigtestat, men man vet att fördelarna överväger nackdelarna."
"3. Friska barn löper en obefintlig risk för att drabbas av allvarlig covid-19, men det är viktigt att vaccinera dem för att skydda dem mot smitta."

Car Wash

I was mindlessly scrolling though emails while my car finished up in the car wash. A giant flatscreen television perched on the wall of the waiting room blared out a news program.

Her: “Oh HELLS no.”

I glanced over at the woman beside me and then at the screen.
It only took two seconds for me to register to what garnered that reaction. Scenes of children proudly flexing band-aided arms as happy parents looked on flashed before my eyes.

Her: *to no one in particular* “5-year-olds? Girl bye.”

She let out a laugh and shook her head.
I decided to bite.

Me: “You talking about them giving little kids the vaccine?”
Her: “Girl, yeah. Ain’t no way in hell.”

She paused for a moment. Then she doubled down.

Her: *shaking her head* “Oh HELLS no.”

I gave a slow nod to acknowledge her position.

Me: “Hmm.”

Over the last 2 days I’ve received almost 200 DMs from parents asking about the #COVIDVaccine EUA for 5-11 yo.

This is a 🧵of common questions

Q: Should I be worried about my child’s future fertility?

A: No, there is no scientifically plausible mechanism and no data to support this.

See:… @DrJenGunter

Q: Should my child with X get the #COVID19Vaccine?

A: Yes, there are no absolute contraindications and if your child has a pre-existing condition it’s even more important they’re protected.

What do we know about pregnancy, #COVID19 and vaccination? A thread.

@HSEImm @RCPI_news @RCPI_ObsGyn
Most pregnant women who are infected with SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that causes COVID – have mild or no symptoms and don’t experience serious complications.

However, there is increasing evidence that #COVID19 can affect your pregnancy.
For example, pregnant women with COVID-19 are at higher risk of preterm birth, high blood pressure, postpartum haemorrhage and stillbirth than those who are not infected with #COVID19.
In addition, some pregnant women with COVID-19 will become severely unwell.
