A thread on how the UK strategy relating to Pfizer vaccine rollout (i.e. 12 weeks between doses, rather than the 3 weeks followed in the Phase 3 clinical trial), places the most vulnerable in society, at PARTICULAR risk.

I found a briefing document, which has significant implications for the UK Pfizer strategy...and by "strategy", I mean, "reckless gamble". 🙄…
On Page 26:

"Overall, BNT162b2 elicited HIGHER antigen-binding and neutralizing responses in YOUNGER participants (Figure 6) than in older participants (Figure 7). The BOOST effect AFTER receiving Dose 2 was MOST PRONOUNCED at the 30 μg dose level for OLDER participants."

Petit rappel sur ce qu’est la Convention sur la diversité biologique : l’une des 3 Conventions de Rio #CBD. La biodiversité, c’est la diversité au sein des espèces et entre les espaces ainsi que celle des écosystème. Image
On a échoué à atteindre nos objectifs de la décennie passée pour la #biodiversité #objectifsdAichi. Ils étaient exhaustifs mais sont restés incantatoires, sans mécanisme de suivi, sans moyens de mise en œuvre, faute d’avoir identifié les pressions sur la biodiversité. Image
