The UK government has just announced that 16-17 year-olds can now be offered a second Covid jab. Speaking from Downing Street, June Raine, the Chief Executive of The Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said:
“We’ve closely monitored the safety of covid-19 vaccines in individuals under 18. Our review of reports of suspected side-effects does not raise any additional safety issues specific to this age group.
As is set out in our summary report, there have been a small number of reports of suspected myocarditis associated with Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in both the UK and internationally.
This is a recognised very rare potential risk with these two vaccines. We’re closely monitoring it and importantly, now that we have more experience of use in the under-30’s in the UK, we are not detecting any increase in risk with the second dose.
So our message is to people aged 16 and 17, it is safe to have a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine and if you’re called for your second vaccination, please come forward.
And this insures that you’re further protected against covid-19.”
Raine then went on to urge people to continue to report suspected side-effects via the government’s Yellow Card system. I don’t know how she managed to keep a straight face. Here’s a flavour of the latest data from the government’s own analysis of the Yellow Card reports.
Up to 3 November 2021, the MHRA had received Yellow Card reports of 425 cases of major thromboembolic events (blood clots) with concurrent thrombocytopenia (low platelet counts) in the UK following vaccination with COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca. Forty-six of the 425 reports have been reported after a second dose. Of the 425 reports, 215 occurred in females, and 206 occurred in males aged from 18 to 93 years. The overall case fatality rate was 17%* with 73 deaths, six of which occurred after the second dose.
A total of 41,086 suspected reactions relating to a variety of menstrual disorders have been reported after all three of the COVID-19 vaccines including heavier than usual periods, delayed periods and unexpected vaginal bleeding. These suspected reactions have been reported in 32,036 individual Yellow Card reports
The MHRA has received 597 UK reports of suspected ADRs to the COVID-19 Pfizer/BioNTech Vaccine in which the patient died shortly after vaccination, 1,118 reports for the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca, 19 for the COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna and 32 where the brand of vaccine was unspecified.
Remember, it is believed that only around one in ten people are likely to report a reaction to a covid jab. Therefore, it’s possible that the jabs have killed as many as five thousand people in the UK.
Any doctor who advises a patient to have one of these jabs, should be struck off.
