So, the latest #AntiVax bandwagon is that “no *healthy* young people died of covid in Israel”

As ever, given we know many under 50s died from Covid in the rest of the world, does this seem likely?

What do you think?!🙄

Let’s have a look at what’s going on….

I went to the link on @stkirsch’s tweet first (I always feel a bit yucky clicking on those, but I braved it!💪🏼)

And, as is often the case, this claim has come from a Freedom of Information request. This is a classic technique, to get an answer you can misconstrue.

Here is a Google Translate of the FOI that was sent to the Israeli Ministry of Health.

The first three questions were about the average age of covid deaths in the vaxxed vs the unvaxxed.

The unvaxxed died younger - but unsurprisingly the AVers ignored that bit!🙄

#Antivax #vaccineswork #primarycare If you have read the book Turtles all the way down, by an anonymous author, and edited by @ChildrensHD attorney Mary Holland, you have been deliberately, and systematically lied to. A small sampling of the antivax strategies used:
1. Claim that nobody knows how to read scientific studies except for them. If you intentionally misinterpret studies on traditional vaccines, you can literally come up with any conclusion you want.
2. Using deliberately hostile language in reference to the men and women who spent their professional careers working on immunizations. Much of what @ChildrensHD does is to create imaginary hostility to spread their message.

"Winny" sobie zlokalizuje, że to o jego wpis chodziło, a ja tymczasem opowiem Szanownym co takiego głupiego Joe Rogan i Aseem Malhotra ostatnio nakręcili
Rzecz o statynach, infodemii i SARS-CoV2:

Joe Rogan jest znany z tego, że jest znany. Prowadzi swoje "show". Czy wierzy w to co tam opowiada? Mam wrażenie, że nie 🤣😈
Zaprosił znanego z "nawrócenia" Malhotrę by porozmawiać o szczepieniach, statynach i problemach po szczepieniach
Ale zanim się rozkręcimy:

#JoeRogan @joerogan and @DrAseemMalhotra misled you again, willfully, on vaccine myocarditis and statins, on the Joe Rogan show. Here, I explain how. 🧵
#vaccineswork #myocarditis #HeartDisease
One part of his presentation focuses on statins, and the controversy surrounding his project with Abramson/ Malhotra et al about the risk/ benefit ratio of statins. As a quick recap, statins are intended to lower cholesterol, and Malhotra's position is that...
as many people as possible should stop their statins and focus on exercise. This narrative is as usual based upon distortions of the evidence, and normal cardiologists don't need to distort the evidence to make their point.

This thread is intended as a "mini literature review" on arrhythmias after COVID vaccine versus COVID - there are people claiming that heart block is a serious, worldwide risk after COVID immunization. Lets see what the actual research says.
#COVID19 #mRNA #VaccinesWork
There are in general fast heart rhythms and slow ones - the technical words are tachyarrhythmia and bradyarrhythmia. Both can cause dizziness and sometimes life threatening problems, but lets go through them systematically, using only peer reviewed literature to think through.
TLDR#1: In contrast to the myocarditis risk being skewed towards old boys/ young men, the risk difference of having an arrhythmia after COVID is much worse, than that equivalent risk after COVID vaccine and this risk persists at all ages.

It's #WorldImmunizationWeek

In 2021, around the world:
❌ 25 million children missed at least 1 essential vaccine
❌ 18 million children received no vaccines at all

Now is the time for ‘The Big Catch-up’ to get vaccinations back on track. #VaccinesWork

Did you know? Over 3/4 of the children who missed out on their vaccinations in 2021 live in just 20 low- & middle-income countries.

Time for ‘The Big Catch-up!‘
Let’s get vaccines to the children who need them.

1/ Yesterday, I tested positive for Covid.

Thankfully, I am vaxxed, and triple boosted, or, this could have been worse. I am grateful for the protection that these vaccines continue to provide.

This would be a good time to remind everyone that Covid isn't over yet.
2/ Regarding the upcoming decriminalization of heroin, I find it disturbing that so many "tolerant" people are against it. I thought that diversity was our strength,

That being said, I don't support the proposed "smack-pass".

It seems excessive, at least for now.
3/ Why is it such a controversial idea that men should be competing in women's sports? Seriously, so many of the world records haven't moved much in decades.

Everyone knows that men make better women than women do.

#COVID19 #VaccinesWork It is actually possible to be empathetic to the vaccine injured while refraining from misleading the public - Again, Aseem Malhotra has fallen short of this standard when he spoke in @GibraltarGov . Here's how he recycled more of his distortions.
He still thinks that the abstract provided by Gundry at the @AHAScience / @American_Heart is adequate to prove that mRNA is causing widespread undetected coronary inflammation... no that is not accurate.… . That test is not validated for this purpose.
He still believes that mRNA vaccines cause widespread accelerated coronary atherosclerosis... an experiment is necessary to show this. The most frequently cited piece of evidence is the untimely death of @KailashChandOBE ; while it was tragic it is insufficient evidence.

The @eu_echo & WHO are empowering health workers across 16 African countries.

🎯Goal: To increase #COVID19 vaccination coverage.

🧵on how health workers are reaching vulnerable populations and working with community leaders to ensure #HealthForAll.

In times of crisis, leadership matters.

Bornalia Kuajo Peter, a community leader in #SouthSudan 🇸🇸, decided to take his #COVID19 vaccination in public.

To dispel fear and demonstrate that vaccines are safe.

Confronting evolution & expansion of anti-vaccine activism… by @RMCarpiano @PeterHotez @ArthurCaplan et al.

Key themes: Progression into right-wing identity & activism; networked spreading of bunk; > harassment & threats.

#VaccinesWork 1/4
Needed response to antivaxx noise...

"First, we suggest the development of networked communities capable of reaching the public at the right time, at the right place, and with the right messenger about vaccine-related information—especially to pre-empt and pre-bunk..." 2/4
"Second, we suggest input is solicited from outside the usual public health agencies. ....

Thus, interdisciplinary and intersectoral collaborations are essential for developing effective responses." 3/4

#vaccines #VaccinesWork #COVID19 @DrEliDavid is doing a bunch of threads to remind the world on what healthcare workers did "in the name of science". It's my turn to remind those who think like him, what the antivaxxers did in the name of **their science**.…

People with no medical knowledge were thoroughly convinced that ICUs were harming them with no evidence. Some of the people who left ICUs died at home, of preventable deaths.

Dr Edward Jenner, who invented vaccination, died 200 years ago today. Jenner created the first-ever vaccine when he found out people infected with cowpox were immune to #smallpox. This discovery ultimately led the world to eradicate this deadly disease & save millions of lives ⬇
At first, not everyone agreed with Dr Jenner and his #smallpox vaccine. Rumours & #misinformation circulated at the time that the vaccine would turn people into cows.

📸 @WellcomeLibrary
#Smallpox was eradicated in 1980, thanks to an extended global effort, spearheaded by WHO and involving all countries. Thousands of #healthworkers administered half a billion vaccinations to stamp out the disease. #VaccinesWork

Die Einführung der Covid-19-Vakzine, stets als ein Riesen-Erfolg gefeiert, markierte leider auch zugleich eine fatale ZEITENWENDE in der Entwicklung und Verabreichung von Impfstoffen:

Thread 🧵
1/ Schwerwiegende Komplikationen, selbst mit Todesfolge, gelten seither als „Kollateralschäden“ der Impfkampagne, die von Politik und Wissenschaft scheinbar klaglos hingenommen werden, Beispiel Sinusvenenthrombosen/VITTS nach #AstraZeneca:
2/ Geschädigte Kinderherzen durch #Myokarditis oder #Perikarditis mit unklarer Langzeitprognose entlocken den Zulassungsbehörden und Politikern kaum mehr als ein gleichgültiges Achselzucken.

Fact Check:

Dear Parent,

Have you taken your daughter for the HPV vaccine?

Here is why you need to do it:

Cervical cancer is caused by certain types

of human papillomavirus (HPV)

and can often be prevented with a vaccine.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

recommends that all children aged 11 or 12

should receive the HPV vaccine.

The vaccine can also be given to anyone

between the age of 9 and 45

who has not yet been vaccinated.

#vaccineswork #COVID19 I would like to take a moment to highlight the differences between a real vaccine injury researcher and someone who is grifting for themselves.
@P_McculloughMD 's current situation is that he blocks everyone who challenges him... and its quite easy to challenge his willful disregard of even basic biochemistry. He now sells vitamins with minimal evidence that they actually protect the heart.
Texas's Stella Immanuel also sells vitamins with minimal evidence, which can also be purchased for more medically valid reasons for much cheaper at places like... Walmart.

#VaccinesWork #neoTwitter #COVID19 Antivax tactic used here - when knowledge is a bit sparse, invent stuff to make your meme more scary. The meme shown here is full of errors. Its about multisystem inflammatory syndrome in neonates.
Lets start with some definitions - multisystem inflammatory syndrome is defined essentially as dysfunction in two or more organ systems after COVID19 infection.
"White lungs" is usually a reference to neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, meaning a situation where the lungs are not well developed enough to produce enough surfactant (a type of biological soap) to keep the lungs open.

#vaccineswork #pregnancy #COVID19 Wrong on all counts Steve. Here's the actual updated data on the matter, from someone who actually looks at this stuff professionally. Thank you to @VikiLovesFACS…

Maternal vaccination with two doses of mRNA vaccine was associated with a reduced risk of hospitalization for Covid-19, including for critical illness, among infants younger than 6 months of age.…
Severe complications known to be associated with COVID-19 in pregnancy (critical care admission and perinatal mortality) were more common in women who were unvaccinated at the time of COVID-19 diagnosis than in vaccinated pregnant women.…

#COVID19 #vaccineswork No the FAA did not secretly change their cardiac evaluation rules because of myocarditis. The article quoted explains exactly what was changed - requirements on this thing called the PR interval.
Steve has overblown it per his usual preference for hype. Lets explain -…
The PR interval is defined as the amount of time in between the atrial squeeze and the ventricular squeeze. Having a prolonged PR interval is also known as a first degree heart block.

#vaccineswork #COVID19 #myocarditis for those who are strongly committed to the COVID doesn't cause myocarditis camp, who love toting this Israeli study, remember that it specifically looked at myocarditis in a post COVID cohort specifically those after day 10 of positive PCR,
and compared it to historical cohorts who had myocarditis from other reasons. Their core conclusion was that the amount of myocarditis was not statistically significant different in the two groups. If you look for myocarditis after COVID only 10 days after, you will ...
find less myocarditis than if you look at all COVID cases added together. We have lots of historical evidence for human coronaviruses of all flavors causing myocarditis. Calling me names will not change that, despite what you prefer to think.
