How to determine what a genuine scientific debate looks like. Citation credits: Dr Nini Munoz.
1. Not all things in science are debatable. Pundits would have you think otherwise.
2. General debate tactics don't necessarily fly in scientific debate.
Witness an example of a really well done scientific debate on Quantum physics (citation credits @WorldSciFest :

1. None of the panel sealioned.
2. None of the panel gish galloped.
3. None of the panel used conspiracy.
4. None of the panel made mistakes in basic physics.
5. None of the panel tried to debate bedrock physics facts.
6. None of the panel presented false dichotomies.
7. None of the panel appealed to emotion.
8. None of the panel used ad hominems.
9. None of the panel goalpost shifted.
Now I invite everyone to use what Dr Nini Munoz wrote to help you better approach the current fast moving topics in vaccine science.

25. Getting that Pfizer library of vax clinical trial data - its fine to look at it, but remember that Pfizer didn't approve their own vaccine. Its taking time to release the documents because all federally protected patient information and company trade secrets must be deleted.
Obtenir la bibliothèque Pfizer de données d'essais cliniques - c'est bien qu'on veut la regarder, mais rappelez-vous que Pfizer n'a pas approuvé son propre vaccin.

17. Myocarditis mortality is 20% at 6.5 years/ Clots form in your heart - This is a misrepresentation of an adult myocarditis study. Clots can happen after vax, but they are far more common w/ SARS-COV2. The people who scare you about myocarditis usually aren't the cardiologists.
La mortalité due à la myocardite est de 20 % à 6,5 ans/ Des caillots se forment dans votre❤️- Il s'agit d'une fausse représentation d'une étude sur la myocardite chez l'adulte. Des caillots peuvent se former après les vaccins, mais ils sont beaucoup plus fréquents avec le virus.

10. Control groups didn't control for previous infection - we're getting better at predicting old COVID infection but current tests have their limitations. Given that these limitations were worse at the beginning of the trials, it is highly likely that they were included.
Les essais n'ont pas contrôlé l'infection précédente - nous nous améliorons pour prédire qui a déjà eu la COVID, mais les tests actuels ont leurs problèmes. Étant donné que ces limitations étaient pires au début des essais, il est fortement probable qu'elles aient été incluses.

#MedTwitter Hi again from your neighborhood cardiologist - This article from the UK is getting quite a lot of interest because it has worked harder in determining the incidence of COVID vaccine myocarditis after boosters. Let's think through this one.…

#Medtwitter #Cardiotwitter for the crowd who thinks docs aren't reliable sources of information on COVID vaccines, please consider hearing it directly from this patient who almost died because she waited for Novavax. Translated from DE. Please hear it from @citoyen_lauris .
After a month's break on Twitter, I'm back with my personal Covid experience.

I've been back from the hospital for three days - 19 days of which have been in the intensive care unit. With my new constant companion, the home oxygen.

I was not vaccinated.
On November 20 I got a positive PCR: Delta variant.

I went into quarantine and slept through the first symptoms, until my doctor recommended clinical evaluation.

Lung function decreased rapidly on the first two days in the hospital. Bottomline: 10%.
