📍Folks need to know this—#ColinPowell had multiple myeloma—a cancer of plasma cells that **makes antibodies**. Thus, vaccines are weaker in myeloma patients because we kill the cells that make antibodies with our myeloma treatments. Please vax to protect others.🧵

HT @VincentRK
2) Where are the studies proving this? Myeloma patients are extremely weak responders to vaccines because we killed off the immune cells to treat the cancer.
3) myeloma cancer patients have very very weak immune systems, and well known to have high COVID mortality already because of it.

“One study…found…#schools that required #masking had…37% lower incidence of #COVID19…Another study…found…high levels of #mask wearing among students helped keep…rate of in-school spread…to under 1%…as…cases were surging in the wider community.”
@mgodoyh goes on:
“Not masking could be disastrous for schools, says Julie Swann, a department head and professor at North Carolina State University who leads a #COVID19 forecasting team funded by the @CDCgov

1st, former @Surgeon_General @JeromeAdamsMD reminds us #PPE good enough for doctors in the hospital can help mitigate spread in our schools, including high quality, fitted & authentic #N95 #masks.

With #DeltaVariant spreading rapidly among young people, and some evidence that it causes more severe disease, there is a growing argument for #vaccinating children, and at the same time wealthy nations ensuring they deliver #VaccineEquity for ALL nations.…
Little doubt that relaxing control measures while the majority of the global population remains #unvaccinated risks the evolution of more transmissible, more virulent #variants. Variants that may be more dangerous for children & certain vulnerable groups.…
The researchers warn that,

'Even in countries where #vaccination has reduced the numbers of hospitalizations and deaths, high case numbers and large numbers of unvaccinated individuals provide a mixing vessel in which new #variants can emerge.'…

"Those being vaccinated now are, whether they realize it or not - part of the phase 3 experiment. They're part of a #vaccination #experiment. And the companies have openly acknowledged this in their reports to the regulatory agencies." - Dr Byram Bridle

#Covid19 Symposium 2021: Dr Byram Bridle, Viral Immunologist, University of #Guelph

#CndPoli #Canada……
Note that Bridle is a strong proponent of vaccines. ["As a viral #immunologist who develops immunization strategies to prevent infectious diseases and treat cancers, I teach the value of high-quality, well-validated vaccines & passionately promote their use."]

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

#Parenting with #antivax parents: a thread.
When I was young, my antivax mom always told me that I would have to do my own research about #vaccines. When I grew up & my research led me to get myself vaccinated, she was upset.
The early conversations with my mom about my decision to get #vaxxed were difficult & emotional for us both. My mom felt like I was rejecting her. I felt betrayed.
Getting #vaccinated as an adult is an annoying & embarrassing process. I was ashamed to explain to doctors why I needed vaccines I should have gotten in childhood. I had to take time off work to get multiple doses of certain vaccines.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)

When I was pregnant, I asked my #antivax parents to get the #whoopingcough #vaccine to protect their grandchild from it. They refused. We got in a big fight & there were lots of tears on both sides.
I told them that #whoopingcough can be deadly for infants & a person can be contagious with it before they show symptoms or know they have it.
I told them the CDC, AAP & my OBGYN recommended any caregiver in regular, close proximity to the baby should be #vaxxed against #whoopingcough. They also recommend the #flu shot, but I wasn't due in flu season and didn't want to have that fight too.

My mom always told me #vaccinating my own kids someday would be my decision & I would have to do my own research before deciding. She definitely thought I would find her #antivax sources credible. I didn't. #VaccinesWork
#Antivaxxers love advocating "research," by which they mean "read this fear-mongering piece by a discredited scientist/pseudo-celebrity/other antivax parent."
It's not usually worth it to try to counter #antivax #propaganda with factual sources & scientific evidence. Those are inevitably written by a doctor with an agenda/a big pharma shill/brainwashed sheep.
