een paar onweerlegbare feiten over #vaccines / #PCR:
"Global Vaccine Safety Summit on Dec. 2&3 2019" er is geen data m.b.t. de veiligheid van welk vaccine dan ook‼️U gelooft mij niet? Luister en kijk zelf naar een opname van deze @WHO summit… (item-2) 1/5👉
2) Prof. Heidi Larson PhD – WHO Global Vaccine Safety Summit about misinformation.
“The problem with misinformation is not so simple, a lot of it is NOT mis-information” ... tevens te vinden op deze webpagina 2/5👉
3) Mijn vakgebied "regulatory compliance, pharmaceutical manufacturing"
Het is simpelweg onmogelijk om in een tijdsbestek van 1 jaar een productielijn / faciliteit operationeel en (volgens de EMA -annex/FDA 'cfr21 ) goedgekeurd te krijgen. Gemiddelde doorlooptijd 3 jaar‼️3/5👉

Two #smallpox #vaccines may be used for #monkeypox: efficacy unknown. In the U.S. now the Norwegian JYNNEOS 2-dose vax is used for #MPX but it's assumed prior ACAM2000 Sanofi smallpox vax protects.
Here, the case of an ACAM2000-vaxed man who got MPX.
"We report a patient in Washington who contracted #monkeypox despite being successfully immunized against #smallpox with the ACAM2000 #vaccine 8 years earlier.
The patient was a previously healthy 34-year-old man who had sex with men...came to a clinic because of..."
3/ "...a 4-day history of malaise, fatigue & headache & 4 painless penile lesions.
"...this case highlights that #vaccination alone does not guarantee immunity from #monkeypox. Public health leaders should taper expectations that vaccination alone will end the outbreak."

@NEJM The mRNA vaccines are contaminated with E. coli proteins. E. coli proteins have high homology (molecular mimicry) to numerous human proteins including ILR-1A. BLASTP results comparing human ILR-1A to E. coli below. 1/

Check out our paper in @ImmunityCP! I think it’s pretty neat, read more in the thread below: Mucosal plasma cells are required to protect the upper airway and brain from infection…
The highlights:
-Blood antibody can’t protect the entire nose from infection
-Discovery of the blood-olfactory barrier (BOB!)
-Mucosal plasma cells home to the nose to provide protection
-Only some vaccine adjuvants make these plasma cells
For respiratory diseases like #COVID, #vaccines give us great protection from severe disease in the lung. But do they protect the upper respiratory tract? Mild nasal infection seems common even with high levels of blood antibody, allowing for continued transmission of disease.

So I guess a few days ago someone of vague, national significance with a huge Twitter following declared that the pandemic is over. Don’t get me wrong, I’m overjoyed. Good riddance. But I *do* have a few questions. 1/ Image
1. Just a few months ago, the @CDCgov (hi team!) released a paper saying that 1 in 5 acute COVID cases end in #LongCovid. Is that done now? Are there no longer cases of Long COVID being caused by #COVID? Or are we just ignoring the problem? 2/
2. @CDCgov (we must stop meeting like this!) published a second paper that taught us that every acute #COVID reinfection increased your risk of death by 3%. Three hundred americans a day are still dying from COVID. Is this just the cost of doing business now? 3/

Important Vaccine Safety Information:

The @EMA_News #EUdraVigilance System constitutes the sole foundation for the #emergency #authorisation of innovative mRNA COVID-19 #vaccines.

The #integrity of this #EUdraVigilance Database appears to be #Compromised.

With a compromised #EudraVigilance database, #EMA and its officials are not able to fulfill their utmost Due Care obligations to effectively safeguard the health of EU citizens under both EU and Int’l Law.

We show two copies of a single, unique Case Safety Report (EU-EC-10012115354, downloaded 22-jul-22 and 19-sep-22),

To which EMA made the following changes:

Provocative journalism, on 4 organizations' roles in the global response to #COVID19 -- @gavi @gatesfoundation @wellcometrust @CEPIvaccines -- provides insights into failures, money, #vaccines, testing. It's huge, and there's a lot to digest, debate.…
The 4 organizations gave $10 billion, combined, to the world #COVID19 response. Image
The @gatesfoundation gave more money for the @WHO response to #COVID19 than did the US government. Of course, #Trump pulled out of WHO and stopped the flow of cash to the UN organization. Image

#COVID19 ripped through the Jewish community and left a bad trail in its wake, days where 3-7 people died each day. Painful. And yet #vaccines rates are low. Higher in older. People below 40 and young moms are not vaccinated, need to reach them, say @MarcusBlimi and Tobi Ash.
Reminder: until 1964 rampant discrimination - quotas in school, other events. There was justified mistrust of government, explain @MarcusBlimi and Tobi Ash. Included loss of trust in public health.
During #COVID19 - put in small houses with a lot of children- not allow to leave, very hard for those families. Playgrounds were locked. Felt strongly, strong reaction. Needs seen as not met, felt picked on and discriminated. Hostility to any guideline or mandate.

Why was the Jewish orthodox community targeted? Exploded after WWII, explained nurse Tobi Ash in #ncicp22. Often large family sizes, in part in response to the Holocaust murders.
The drive for large families affects the way the community providers services. Also affects how the families see it: children are precious. With large families - more autism, asthma, etc’ visible in the community. When antivaccine groups explain rise by falsely blaming vaccines -
Changes how they see health, see problems more simply because there are more children, explains @MarcusBlimi.

Panel on dealing with burnout related to #vaccines at #NCICP22: @lynn_bahta on work with the Minnesota Somali immigrant community. Group of parents whose children were diagnosed with autism. New to them, trying to figure it out, caught by anti-vaccine groups.
Panel on dealing with burnout related to #vaccines at #NCICP22: @lynn_bahta the parents in the community did not know what to do - lost friends and people avoided them because of children's autism, and anti-vaccine groups stepped in, created contact.
Panel on dealing with burnout related to #vaccines at #NCICP22: @lynn_bahta anti-vaccine groups built strong credibility with some of the Somali parents. Group of 5-10 parents talking on this pervaded the community. Convinced others: don't get them MMR vaccine.

Panel on dealing with burnout related to #vaccines at #NCICP22: @SereseMarotta as ACIP member, how does vaccine hesitancy contribute to burnout, @lynn_bahta?
Panel on dealing with burnout related to #vaccines at #NCICP22: @lynn_bahta with #covid19 we saw something we don't usually see in #vaccines, partisanship. Concern - that vaccine resistance may become mainstream.
Panel on dealing with burnout related to #vaccines at #NCICP22: @lynn_bahta many of us saw a family member or friend who has strong feelings against getting vaccinated against #covid19 - how do you defend your loved ones from fake news? Can burnout.

Panel on dealing with burnout related to #vaccines at #NCICP22: Dr. Michael Leiter: his research looked at several things that contribute to burnout: A. Workload - excessive (or too low) workload can interfere. 1/n
B. Control - how much decision making power do you have? It can be too high or too low. C. Rewards - if work is not intrinsically rewarding, need to add rewards, or make it more rewarding. 2/3
D. Community. People want to be a valued member of a community. If you say good morning, do people notice you and answer? @SereseMarotta: or ask how someone is and listen to answer.
This is meaningful. 3/3

Please retweet and share if you support my and others' vaccine injury recoveries. Image
My fiancé and I were supposed to get married in July 2022. Given the first 2 vaccine mandates, we figured that we had no choice but to keep on taking the boosters in order to be able to travel for our honeymoon / have liberties to go to stores etc.
We decided to take the 3rd @moderna_tx booster anticipating that perhaps it would also be mandated by the #Canadian #government.

My research (with @_nickdavies @cmmid_lshtm @markjit & John Edmunds) is published in @NatureComms 🥳

This is the culmination of many months of work (my funding from @Epipose)🍾🎉…

Until I write a book on this (publishers/agents hmu😝), here is a 🦣🧵
The code to reproduce this work is available at:… 🛠️⚙️🧩🏗️

This implementation of 'covidm' builds on work by @_nickdavies (the OG creator) in the early #COVID days

Since joining @LSHTM in July 2020, I have developed covidm with @_nickdavies

Early 2020 discussions @cmmid_lshtm led @_nickdavies to build #covidm

CMMID members @LSHTM (e.g. @rozeggo, John Edmunds, & @adamjkucharski) contributed to these discussions

Many other colleagues contributed to model development (e.g. @cap1024 @Lloyd_Chapman_ @KevinvZandvoort)

I don’t know where to start with this profoundly ignorant selfish stupid tweet from @EstherMcVey1 who clearly has no compassion for the 100,000s of people who died or were damaged by #COVID19Pandemic - not least those unprotected in the #NHS due to lack of #PPE early on 1/
#masks do work. We reduced transmission in in centre #haemodialysis #patients radically once they wore masks door to door. 3% of all such #patients died in the first wave Esther & we were told off for giving them masks. 80+ #patients died at our centre alone. It was brutal 2/
Don’t take my word for it (though I’m way more expert than you @EstherMcVey1) - read this thread from @trishgreenhalgh who is a world expert on how #Covid19 is airborne & how #masks protect yourself AND others

And the please correct your dangerous ignorant tweet 3/

A short story (and some tips) about having routine #vaccines as an adult. I was very ill as a baby and knew that, with a strongly vaccine-hesitant parent, I may not have had all my routine jabs. With outbreaks of polio and measles in the UK, I thought I'd check to be sure. (1/7) Image
To do this, I just had to submit an online admin query to my GP reception (takes 2 mins). The receptionists text or email you back with your vaccine record. To my slight horror (and embarrassment as a science/health communicator), I discovered that my record said... (2/7)
"Homeopathic vaccines only." Bloody hell. Other than my COVID vaccines, I hadn't been vaccinated for anything. My parents, not wanting to have me vaccinated but presumably feeling guilty about not protecting their child, had taken me to a local homeopath. (3/7)

Big news yesterday from the UK: @moderna_tx bivalent (BA1/wild type) #covid19 vaccine was approved!

But in the US, it's different.

🧵A thread on how to think about "what do I do this fall":…
1. First, why update the #covid19 vaccines?

#vaccineswork still to prevent severe disease/hospitalization...but aren't as strong against *infection* with new variants, esp if not boosted.…
Basically, we worry about the vaccines' ability to still protect against severe disease in the future. Blame the virus: it's evolving.

This is why everyone's trying to figure out best next steps-
Do we keep using existing vaccines?
If not, which variant?
How many variants?

1/🧵 MonkeyPox, ChickenPox, SmallPox:

Let’s talk poxpoxpox…
✔️#MonkeyPox has 4 deaths
✔️Is it a panedmic?
✔️What do you need to know?
✔️Here are key take homes
2/ Many people are holding off calling #MonkeyPox a pandemic.
Epidemics that “get passports” travel.
Mpox seems to have a global passport.
Sustained spread in >80 countries seems likely.
3/ The window for controlling Mpox is closing - eternal optimists are hoping enough vaccination can beat it.
Judging by how we handled #COVID, I’m betting Mpox will win.
@DrEricDing @kavitapmd make great points:

Excerpts from The Forbidden Debate (Del Bigtree host). Guests incl. Jessica Rose, Robert Malone, Geert Vanden Bossche, Bret Weinstein
-elimination of childhood diseases
-safety of childhood #vaccine schedule
-eliminating control group
-what can #COVID vaccinees do?
Elimination of childhood diseases
"it was more concurrent with implementation of modern public health & water sanitation practices than it was with implementation of #vaccines
"industry has taught me & many of us that it was a causal relationship when in fact it was correlation"
RFK, Jr. has asked for #vaccine #safety & efficacy data

Malone agrees: "We need to revisit & if the data aren't there, I think we have to be conservative in the sense of don't subject our children to products that the safety & effectiveness has not been adequately demonstrated."

On Saturday, @WHO Director-General @DrTedros declared the global #monkeypox outbreak a public health emergency of international concern—what’s known as a #PHEIC.

What this means and what you need to know ↓
A #PHEIC is a global alert and call to action in response to an international health risk.

PHEICs have previously been declared for other disease outbreaks, including #COVID19, Zika, #polio, Ebola, and H1N1.

Watch @DrTedros' remarks:
Before the declaration, the DG considered factors incl. current info about the outbreak, expert recommendations, & global risk analysis.

@WHO also provided temporary recommendations to help control the spread of #monkeypox.
