Oh My: New York State Study Shows That Vaccine Only Had 12% Efficacy In Producing Resistance to Omicron in Kids

So of course we should mandate all children get an experimental vaccine whose long-term (and short-term!) effects on kids are still not known!

After all, slightly less than one in eight children, who are already almost completely immune from covid's serious effects anyway, will slightly benefit from the vaccine!

New York state officials found the effectiveness of Pfizer’s vaccine against Covid infection plummeted from 68% to 12% for children aged 5 to 11 during the omicron surge.

The dramatic drop in vaccine effectiveness was likely due to the lower dosage the youngsters received, according to study team members.

Oh I totally believe that self-serving explanation -- we just didn't vaccinate them hard enough.

The New York State Department of Health found that the effectiveness of Pfizer’s vaccine against Covid infection plummeted from 68% to 12% for kids in that age group during the omicron surge from Dec. 13 through Jan 24. Protection against hospitalization dropped from 100% to 48% during the same period.

The study has not yet undergone peer review, the academic gold standard. Due to the public health urgency of the pandemic, scientists have been publishing the results of their studies before such review.

The best-laid corporate plans:

The U.S. suffered a spike in hospitalizations of children with Covid during the omicron wave. The Food and Drug Administration sought to fast track Pfizer's vaccine for kids aged six months through 4 years old this month in response to the number of children hospitalized with Covid.

However, the FDA and Pfizer decided to put those plans on hold after data on the first two doses did not meet expectations. The FDA is now waiting to see clinical trial data on a third dose for the youngest kids, which is expected in April.

DeSantis' social media manager Christia Pushua posted this on twitter, and some asshole pushed back against her. He thinks this is an OWN:

Fine cherry picking: "Given rapid loss of protection against infections, these results highlight the continued importance of layered protections, including mask wearing, for children to prevent infection and transmission," the public health officials wrote in the study.

Oh, after admitting that the vaccines provided very, very low protection against omicron, the author of the study then recommends the "layered protection" of another measure known to provide almost zero protection: cloth masks.

Well played, genius.

Well played.

Reposting from yesterday:

Russel Brand made a Vulgar Marxist point I said "Hmmmm" to:

His point was that the west, which pays for vaccines, is pretty much all vaxed up, as far as adults go. The market is saturated. The only unvaccinated adults are those who can't be vaccinated or won't be vaccinated.

The only adults yet unvaccinated are in the third world, who are charity cases, to whom vaccines must be donated for zero cost, or else sold for just above cost.

But you know who you can get vaccinated, still, and get paid money for, at full costs, no discounts?

Kids. Kids in the wealthy west.

So thus the push to vaccinate not just kids, but kids as young as two years old.

Five years ago, hell, two years ago, I would have said, "No way, your pinko paranoia is getting the best of you."

But now...?
