California has halted injections from a 330,000 dose batch of the experimental Moderna vaccine which has been distributed to 287 providers across the state, citing a “higher-than-usual number of adverse events.”
In December, British health officials of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, or MHRA, warned people with food allergies not to take the Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 experimental vaccine injection. The advice applied to “any person with a history of a significant allergic reaction to a vaccine, medicines or food.”
The health authority warned of “anaphylactoid reactions.”
CBS News reported in December:
“England’s National Health Service warned on Wednesday that people “with a history of a significant allergic reaction to a vaccine, medicine or food” should not be given the COVID-19 vaccine developed by U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and Germany’s BioTech.”
The UK has since changed its position, so that in the words of AllergyAthsmaaNetwork.org, the UK advice “now aligns with United States guidance.”
“After initially recommending people with a history of severe allergic reactions to food, vaccines or medications not receive the vaccine, UK health guidance for COVID-19 vaccines now aligns with United States guidance.”
The UK did not say what science prompted the change in its position.
COVID is a 99.4% – 99.8% survival rate disease, similar to common flu. This is a much higher survival rate than either SARS or MERS, which are two other coronaviruses, as well as Spanish Flu, Asian Flu (H2N2), or Hong Kong Flu (see below.) The Infection Mortality Rates (IFR) shown below are the number of people expected to die of a disease, per infection. The lower it is, the higher the survival rate. The survival rate is 100 minus the IFR.
COVID is now being compared to the Spanish Flu, because the US reported death toll is allegedly 400,000, but this neglects that the Spanish Flu was nearly a magnitude worse in per capita terms, as the population of the US was about 100,000 million at the time, less than one-third of today, and the death toll was nearly 700,000.
European Council Passes Resolution Against Mandatory COVID Vaccinations or Vaccine Status Discrimination
Finally, the international body the Council Of Europe passed a resolution against mandatory vaccines and using vaccine status to discriminate against people. Founded in 1949, the Council of Europe has 47 member states and has an annual budget of approximately 500 million euros.
The body has the power to enforce select international agreements reached by European states on various topics, and runs the European Court of Human Rights, which enforces the European Convention on Human Rights.
In the document “Covid-19 vaccines: ethical, legal and practical considerations” the Council added to its mission resolutions to:
200 people have died in the US after COVID vaccine “adverse events.” Such reports are always likely to be under-estimates.
