Study found similar peak viral load with or without shots
People inoculated against Covid-19 are just as likely to spread the delta variant of the virus to contacts in their household as those who haven’t had shots, according to new research.
In a yearlong study of 621 people in the U.K. with mild Covid-19, scientists found that their peak viral load was similar regardless of vaccination status, according to a paper published Thursday in The Lancet Infectious Diseases medical journal.
The analysis also found that 25% of vaccinated household contacts still contracted the disease from an index case, while 38% of those who hadn’t had shots became infected. The research also showed that immunity from full vaccination waned in as little as three months.

Sweden halts use of Moderna’s COVID vaccine in under 30s
Sweden’s Public Health Agency on Wednesday recommended a temporary halt to the use of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine among young adults, citing concerns over rare [sic] side effects to the heart.
It said the pause should initially be in force until December 1, explaining that it had received evidence of an increased risk of side effects such as inflammation of the heart muscle (myocarditis) and inflammation of the pericardium (pericarditis).
“The Public Health Agency has decided to pause the use of Moderna’s vaccine Spikevax, for everyone born 1991 and after, for cautionary reasons,” the agency said in a statement, adding that those groups should instead receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
According to the agency, the risk seemed especially tied to the second dose of the Moderna vaccine and was more prevalent among young men and boys, and in the weeks just following the second jab.
Japan drops vaccine rollout, goes to Ivermectin, ends COVID almost overnight
Japan has PULLED the vaccines and substituted Ivermectin – and in one month, wiped COVID out in that country.
Safe? Japan pulls Moderna vaccine, ends nationwide vaccine drive after “magnetic” “metals” found to contaminate jabs.
Three lots of Moderna jabs recalled in Japan over stainless steel contamination.
Several Japanese cities report white stuff floating in jab vials.
Japan minister of health tells docs to recommend IVM. Japan now a major success story after it beats COVID rapidly.
By September deaths from the COVID-19 Vaccine jabs were being investigated.
At roughly that time, the vials were under scrutiny and metal “magnetic” material was found in them.
Very shortly thereafter, the Japanese minister of health announced doctors could prescribe Ivermectin.
A month later, the Western press is shocked that COVID has all but disappeared from the island.
More vaccinated people are dying of COVID-19. Here’s what that means
[It means they don’t work.]
[NB – this is the exact opposite of what the MSM is reporting in Canada]
Data from several states and the federal government suggests deaths among Americans fully vaccinated against COVID-19 rose sharply amid the nation’s most recent surge of infections, but experts say that is not unexpected as more of the population gets immunized [sic]. [Why say “immunized?” If they WERE immunized, they wouldn’t be dying from COVID!]
Between Oct. 11 and Oct. 18, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s cumulative count for breakthrough deaths jumped by 51% from 7,178 to 10,857. Some conservatives and vaccine skeptics have pointed to the
seemingly drastic increase to bolster arguments against mandatory immunization policies. [“Seemingly?” A 51% increase is “seemingly?”]
“40% of all covid deaths last week were vaccinated. Stop vaccine mandates & forced masking,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., tweeted in a post that Twitter flagged as “misleading.” [It “misleads” people to the truth. –MDR]
California In-N-Out Shut Down Permanently for Refusing to Check Customers’ Vaccination Status
An In-N-Out [fast food franchise] in Contra Costa County, California, has been shut down permanently for refusing to ask patrons for proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test within three days of dining in. The fast-food branch was told to close indefinitely on Tuesday according to The Hill.
“The Pleasant Hill In-N-Out location received four citations in recent weeks and fines totaling 1,750, all for the same health order violation, before today’s action,” Contra Costa Environmental Health (CCEH) said in a statement.
Arnie Wensinger, chief legal and business officer for the In-N-Out chain, said that the store “properly and clearly” posted signs that outlined the vaccination requirements for indoor diners, but said that the store refused to act as “the vaccination police for any government.”
Biden admin says it will not halt firing employees seeking vaccine exemptions before a DC court ruling
The attorney for the plaintiffs said the Biden administration has shown “an unprecedented, cavalier attitude toward the rule of law.”
A Washington, D.C., district court judge issued a minute order Thursday asking the Biden administration to agree that both civilian and active-duty military plaintiffs will not be terminated while they await a ruling after they sued the administration over religious exemptions to COVID-19 vaccines.
“None of the civilian employee plaintiffs will be subject to discipline while his or her request for a religious exception is pending,” read a minute order from District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly obtained by Fox News.
The Biden regime, which had until noon on Friday to respond, said in a filing that it would not agree to halt the discipline and termination of any employees in the process of seeking a religious exemption to the vaccine pending the court’s ruling on the temporary restraining order (TRO) motion.
Judge Extends Order Blocking United Airlines From Putting Unvaccinated Workers Seeking Mandate Exceptions on Leave
A federal judge this week extended an order that’s blocking United Airlines from putting workers who are seeking exceptions to the company’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate on leave.
U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman, a Trump nominee, extended the temporary restraining order until Nov. 8. Before his extension, it was to expire on Oct. 26.
NYC Could Lose Thirty Percent of Its Police Force, Fire Department Over Vaccine Mandate
New York City may lose up to 30% of its police force and fire department after October 29 over a mandate that puts officers and firefighters on unpaid leave if they have not received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine . . .
Quartz estimates that that includes about “6,500 New York Police Department (NYPD) employees–or roughly 30% of the agency’s total workforce of 36,000 officers and 19,000 civilians–who have so far refused to get vaccinated.”
The firefighters union in New York City warned Wednesday that the percentage could be similar for the city’s fire department, 911 dispatchers, and emergency medical technicians.
FDA authorizes Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5-11
COVID-19 vaccines for younger children are one step closer to becoming available after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Friday authorized Pfizer-BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccine for emergency use in children ages 5 to 11.
[See my article on why this is wrong]
A CDC panel is scheduled to meet early next week to recommend how the vaccines should be used. If the panel gives favorable recommendations and CDC Director Rochelle Walensky accepts them, the vaccination campaign would begin.
While school is already underway, some of the first children in line could be fully vaccinated in time for Christmas.
Lori Lightfoot ‘booed off’ stage amid Chicago vaccine mandate fallout
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was mercilessly booed off a stage during a plumbers’ union fundraiser amid fallout over the city’s vaccine mandate for municipal workers, video shows.
A 25-second clip posted to Twitter shows the moment the Democratic mayor was loudly jeered Sunday as she was introduced to Plumbers Union Local 130 — the Windy City’s first union to endorse her in the 2019 runoff election.
“That’s f–king brutal,” one man sitting at a table said. “And there was a resounding booing throughout the room,” the attendee said.
“Almost deafening…I was sitting at the table with a bunch of plumbers. They’re like, ‘We’ve never heard that before here.'”
George Soros Bankrolls New Media Corporation That Will Pay Journalists to Fight ‘Misinformation,’ Control Local News Outlets
[NB – this could include so-called “medical misinformation” so I’m sharing the story]
A coalition of left-wing billionaires, including controversial hedge fund manager [deep-state dirt-bag] George Soros, are bankrolling a new media company according to a report on Tuesday from left-leaning outlet Axios.
The report states that a “new public benefit corporation backed by billionaires Reid Hoffman, George Soros, and others, is launching Tuesday to fund new media companies and efforts that tackle disinformation.”
The news comes as the corporate media continues to struggle to convince most Americans that all information that does not conform to the personal political beliefs of corporate journalists should be labeled “misinformation” and discarded.
