#COVID19 #vaccineswork #Pathtwitter one of the pathology groups affiliated with The German Center for Infection Research (DZIF) put out an autopsy study on some adults who were found to be deceased after COVID immunization. Lets analyze: link.springer.com/article/10.100….
35 deceased were analyzed and 10 were found to have obvious other causes of death, but 5 of this group were particularly concerning to the authors because those had findings of myocarditis and also died without obvious warning symptoms. This isn't the full story though.
I do like their procedure used to arrive at the histopathologic diagnosis of myocarditis (our professions gold standard criteria); that part is secure. Part of their core conclusion is the decedents died of an arrhythmia from myocarditis - this is a hard diagnosis to establish...

#VaccinesWork #medtwitter One of the most insidious tactics of the antivax world is to weave in kernels of truth with antivax talking points so that the untrained reader has difficulty telling things apart. Lets debunk Aseem Malhotra's lecture in Euston, dated Nov 2022.
1. physicians must be biased because they get big pharma funding-Not all physicians on the planet get pharma dollars. You can actually look up English physicians here abpi.org.uk/reputation/dis… and US physicians here openpaymentsdata.cms.gov . No reason to assume when you can check.
If you still think you don't know your physicians conflicts of interests well enough ask for them during your office visit. You can walk away if you don't like the COIs. Saying most physicians have pharma COI is just factually inaccurate.

#DiedSuddenlydocumentary #DiedSuddenly #vaccineswork The video is out on rumble and, is essentially a list of people who appeared to have fainted on TV - where the narrator attributes every cause to immunization. Here's the debunk.🧵(1/8)
Sorting out fainting requires a systematic approach from your doc, not a Sherry Tenpenny testimonial. You would expect an architect to systematically figure out why a bridge collapsed. You would expect a car mechanic to systematically figure out why a sound is happening.(2/8)
Same applies to a physician. A physician has never been allowed to declare by royal decree that someone died due to an immunization. A detailed investigation has always been mandatory. Lets look at some of the incorrect attributions they used: (3/8)

#vaccineswork the Thai Pfizer #vaccination #myocarditis is making the rounds again because it has passed peer review and become a publication... naturally the usual actors are using it to stir up fear again, so lets deep dive into what the study did and its real conclusions.🧵
Two academic Thai hospitals decided to study the potential incidence of postvaccine myocarditis in the prospective fashion in Thai school age children. They studied 301 children, and got EKG/ labs/ echo/ and some cardiac MRIs to look for myocarditis. (2/10)
@P_McCulloughMD chooses to intentionally gloss over the statistical methods of the article by quoting the percentage of cardiovascular manifestations... remember it is very important to try and read beyond only the abstract to see how the number was calculated. (3/10)

This is a really important paper. Some have said it's a bad news story...
The question is should £1bn have been spent on this drug in 2021 following just a prelim analysis of a much smaller trial...
However, before we start, bravo @ChrisColButler & team👏

First, a little on molnupiravir (Lagevrio).
This is a nucleoside drug, or "nuc", originally named EIDD-2801 by scientists at Emory University. It was named Molnupiravir after Thor's hammer, Mjölnir.
Nucs are the building blocks of genetic material, so RNA or DNA. Nucs are a well
established class of agents used against RNA viruses as they target a unique feature of these viruses - the RNA dependent RNA polymerase, an enzyme that makes more RNA using RNA as a template. We don't have these in mammalian cells, so the idea is you can target this selectively

#cardiotwitter #vaccineswork @DrAseemMalhotra has made yet again, really elementary errors in reading comprehension that, in a normal cardiology training program, a registrar would get pulled aside and get their sanity checked.
The British Heart Foundation released a report describing excess deaths, numbering > 30 000. The actual report is here - bhf.org.uk/-/media/files/… . First rule of fact checking - try to view primary source data if you can. @DrAseemMalhotra clearly didn't.
It is known internationally that British NHS waiting times have become a significant issue - and while the causes are multifactorial, a big issue is staffing/ retention. The British government has a big, big problem on its hands at the moment.

In a move that will surprise nobody Covid grifters like @FatEmperor are now spreading misinformation about ALL vaccines.

Let's examine his claim, shall we?

A 🧵 Image
Anti-vaxxers love to show MORTALITY rates of diseases before vaccines came along while intentionally hiding MORBIDITY rates.

Death is not the only consequence of being infected with a preventable disease like measles.

And cases did not go down & STAY DOWN until vaccines arrived Image
Each year in the USA pre-vaccination measles led to:

400-500 deaths
48,000 hospitalizations
1,000 suffered encephalitis (swelling of the brain)

And other long-term complications like deafness, immune amnesia & some even died from SSPE years later.

#vaccineswork this is yet another example of write your conclusion and then fashion an article. @DrSusanOliver1 . @FLDeptofHealth tried to analyze deaths after COVID vaccination starting from their rollout till June 2022. 🧵(1/9)
Their group created a non-peer reviewed study which was just published on the website, by searching people who received vaccination via FLSHOT (the vaccine registry), death records data, and the Florida Merlin database (a previously established database for reportable epi ).(2/9)
The statistical method is the self-controlled case series method, which basically means you compare subjects to themselves while tracking what happens after exposure to your event of interest (reasonable method to use to study this issue). However, several biases exist.(3/9)

#vaccineswork Aseem Malhotra, a British adult cardiologist and TV personality, has come out with an article railing against COVID vaccinations. It has multiple logical errors, conflicts of interest, and citations of dubious quality. Lets discuss. 🧵
(1/11) as someone who has previously published, we generally do not write articles for journals with a completely different main theme. He wrote an immuno-cardio-epi crossover article and put it in a diabetes journal. He doesn't acknowledge that he is on the board of editors.
(2/11) it is extremely rare to collaborate with anonymous co-authors unless that co-authors' life is on the line should their identity be revealed (or some other extremely extenuating circumstance). As an academic you should be able to stand by your work and respond to critique.

Die Laien-Interpretation des Immunsystems kennt nur Extreme: 1) Entweder sei das Immunsystem angeblich so stark, dass es alle Erregern ohne Ausnahme abwehrt, auch ohne Impfung (falsch - alle Erreger haben Gegenstrategien zum Austricksen eines funktionsfähigen Immunsystems), oder
2) das Immunsystem sei so schwach & fragil, dass man es durch externe Zufuhr von Kügelchen, Vitaminen, Kräutern, etc. stärken müsse, durch ständige Infektionen trainieren und dass ein paar Monate ohne Erkältung es zum Zusammenbruch bringt - auch das ist falsch!
Das Immunsystem ist ein extrem kompliziertes Wunder, was durch Millionen Jahre Wettrüsten mit Krankheitserregern viele faszinierende Eigenschaften zur Abwehr hat, einfach so schon sehr gut funktioniert und überhaupt keine Stärkung von außen braucht. Genauso haben aber auch die

#COVID #vaccineswork OK, lets analyze this study properly. This study out of Thailand used the prospective cohort method to attempt to characterize the rate of myocarditis and its clinical/ lab/ EKG/ echo findings in a group of > 300 students. 🧵1/9
The findings as presented in the tweet are a distortion by someone who did not take into account what normal pediatric EKG findings are; the study listed above preprints.org/manuscript/202… did not take pre-vaccination EKGs. (2/9)
The structure of the study was essentially, enroll some students, give informed consent for vaccination, and see what lab/ imaging/ EKG findings exist after COVID vaccination #2. They also calculated an estimated rate of myocarditis based upon this cohort. (3/9)

A thread of excerpts from a 2011 presentation by Ray Obomsawin, Ph.D. on #vaccines , their alleged elimination of infectious diseases, and #vaccine #safety
Natural immunity is the only true immunity. Everything else is an artificial attempt to cheat nature, and nature is never cheated.

This thread has very revealing data showing that mRNA-vaccinations create majority of the covid cases. Largest covid waves come always after the booster rounds. Not before. AFTER.

Isn't it weird coincidence that the EU suffered the most largest covid wave right after the boosting started?

Ofcourse this can be coincidence but with
what possibility the very same thing happened also in every EU memeber country? Keep reading...

For the first time in nearly a decade, we have a case of #polio in an unvaccinated adult. Per CDC, ~1 in 14 US 2y olds are currently NOT fully vaxxed & thus at risk. The US polio vaccine is safe & effective. Please verify you & your kids are up to date.
washingtonpost.com/health/new-yor…
#Polio most commonly spreads via the "fecal-oral" route which usually means not washing hands after using toilet then eating (or biting nails or, for kids, thumbsucking) but may also spread via airborne route. #WashYourHands #GetVaccinated #MedTwitter

history.com/news/vaccines-…
There are no meds to treat polio, it's all prevention. Here's info from CDC about #polio, but a better use of your time would just be to ensure you/kids are fully vaxxed. The IPV vaccine is highly effective & safe, & then you can go back to not thinking about it. #VaccinesWork

1⃣8⃣ million children did not receive a single vaccine in 2021 - the largest ↘️ in 29 years, due to:

🔸 #COVID19-related disruptions
🔸 emergencies
🔸 misinformation undermining vaccine acceptance & demand

WHO & @UNICEF sound the alarm 🚨

🆕 data on global vaccine coverage ⬇️
Zero-dose children, those who haven’t received a single dose of the vaccine against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, more than doubled in 🔟 countries between 2019 and 2021.

This puts more lives at risk than ever before:
📌 bit.ly/3RztfJ1
Inadequate immunization coverage leads to:
🚨 outbreaks
🚨 children dying from preventable illnesses
🚨 collapse of the global health system

We cannot let children needlessly suffer from preventable illnesses.

Resistant bacterial infections cause nearly 5 million deaths every year.

#VaccinesWork to reduce the use & overuse of antibiotics, which are 🔑 drivers of #AntimicrobialResistance.

🆕 report describes all vaccines currently in development for priority bacterial pathogens ⬇️
#AntimicrobialResistance (AMR) occurs when:
🔸 bacteria
🔸 viruses
🔸 fungi
🔸 parasites
no longer respond to medicines, ↗️ the risk of disease spread, severe illness & death.

🆕 vaccines in development have the potential to impact AMR & save lives:
📌 bit.ly/3uH3Xic
Vaccines are highly effective tools in combating #AntimicrobialResistance by:
🎯 directly targeting resistant bacteria

I despair at the messaging around #vax4kids that I'm seeing.
All medicines are licensed based upon a balance of clinical benefit vs risk. All medicines will have risk, but as a population reducing the harms from disease outweighs it.
This does not diminish the problems faced by
those that comprise the rare group that experience moderate to severe or even deadly side effects.

Issues can arise when, on a population scale, risks are over-stated, or the perceived benefits are underplayed. Of course, the opposite is also true, but there's some pretty good
and unambiguous safety and efficacy RCT data out on COVID vax, despite the 💩some Quacks are spreading.

There is also the sensible mitigation of future risk that combines with the evidence base from trials, aka precautionary principle, to consider...for example, when dealing

I’ve been asked several times if I plan to get my 3yr old and 16mo old vaccinated against COVID.

Guess what? *Every* pediatrician I know with kids under 5 is eager to vaccinate their kids against COVID.

Why is that?

🧵
We've talked with thousands of families about COVID.

We've done our research (like, literally).

We’ve seen the immediate effects of coronavirus infection, including kids who have been hospitalized or worse.

We’ve seen the long-term effects of coronavirus infection -
long COVID with debilitating fatigue, significantly increased risk of autoimmune illnesses like Type 1 diabetes, and more.

So, no, it's not always "mild" for kids.

Once again there is a wave of #misinformation about #ExcessMortality & #vaccines in the US.

A mysterious insurance report says “excess mortality is rising” could it be the vaccines?
No. Virtually all the excess mortality is associated with COVID infections!

A debunking 🧵.
1/ ImageImageImageImage
Every few months, a myth of “unexplained deaths not from COVID” resurfaces.
Last time they claimed “young people” were inexplicably dying. Looking at the actual data it was pretty clear that virtually all the excess deaths under 45 were due to COVID.

2/
In a later incarnation, this conspiracy theory revolved around a mysterious (and nameless) "insurance industry expert” & "former Wall Street analyst” who did his own analysis and “found an 84% increase in excess mortality."

This too has been debunked.
