Former FDA Chief Warns US Will “Struggle” To Reach Herd Immunity As Vaccine Refusals Rise

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.

Across the developing world, 130 countries have yet to receive even a single dose of any of the COVID vaccines, while the US stockpiles hundreds of millions of doses as the Biden Administration announces ever more ambitious targets, currently 200MM jabs in arms by the end of his First 100 Days (which will formally expire at the end of April).

So far, the US has managed its vaccine rollout efficiently relative to the EU, though Washington, unfortunately, didn’t manage to avoid the safety scandals that unfolded in Europe with the AstraZeneca jab. Now that federal regulators have raised questions about the safety of the Johnson & Johnson jab, it looks like the entire adenovirus platform is now suspect (which is truly unfortunate for the developing world, since they were the ones who were supposed to get those vaccines).

Dr. Scott Gottlieb

According to the latest numbers from Bloomberg, 195MM doses have been distributed in the US already, putting Biden well on track to meet his 200M shot goal.

The US vaccination rate is 3,346,301 doses per day, on average. At this pace, it will take another 3 months to cover 75% of the US population, according to Bloomberg. But some have other ideas. And only 23% of the US population is currently fully vaccinated.

But as we look at the projections for herd immunity…

…at least one former senior public-health figure – former FDA Director Scott Gottlieb – believes the real obstacle might be compliance, despite all those polls proclaiming public confidence in the vaccines has never been higher. Especially as the new questions about potential side effects, and anecdotal reports of the sometimes dayslong post-vaccination symptoms experienced by many, a large number of younger Americans may simply refuse the vaccine.

Seeing as he’s a board member of Pfizer, and in theory, this should make him a natural cheerleader for the vaccine effort, it’s worth listening to what Gottlieb is saying since it clashes with the administration’s official position.

And Gottlieb is saying that the US is reaching a point where supply will outstrip demand.

One in 4 Americans would refuse a coronavirus vaccine if offered, a recent NPR/Marist poll found. Another 5% are “undecided” about whether they would get the shot. And some researchers are growing worried that this reluctance will be enough to prevent the nation from reaching what’s known as herd immunity.

A former head of the Food and Drug Administration also has doubts about reaching herd immunity, the point at which the virus can no longer spread easily through the population. Gottlieb, who is on the board of Pfizer, one of the biggest makers of the vaccines, according to NPR’s Morning Edition, which invited Gottlieb for a recent interview.

More than 123 million people, or about 37% of the U.S. population, have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and Dr. Scott Gottlieb, who was FDA commissioner from 2017 to 2019, says the nation is reaching a point where supply will outstrip demand. Gottlieb is on the board of directors of Pfizer, which makes one of the coronavirus vaccines.

“I think that there’s probably 150 million Americans who are eager to get vaccinated. And as we expand into the younger age cohorts and a new eligible population … you’re not going to see the demand be as brisk,” Gottlieb says in an interview with NPR’s Morning Edition.

“I think we get to 150 million vaccines. I think we struggle to get to 160 million,” he says, which is roughly half the U.S. population. “Beyond that, I think it’s going to be difficult. I’m not sure that you have the demand there.”

But it’s not as bad as that sounds.

“I don’t know that we ever get to herd immunity,” Gottlieb says. “But I think the combination of vaccinating that many people and having a lot of immunity in the population from prior infections, [is] enough that the level of spread of this virus is going to be substantially reduced.”

Despite revelations about rare blood clots tied to the J&J jab, Gottlieb said he expects the pause to be short. The reality, of course, is that the global rollout can’t afford to scrap the adenovirus-vector jabs, so patients with low platelet counts may need to make their own decisions. The official US government line is that the risks of vaccine side effects are far outweighed by their benefits.

“I think this is probably a temporary pause where the agency is going to evaluate the information it has, see if there is more cases out there to be reported into the agency, perhaps issue some guidance around the use of the vaccine and what doctors should be alert for and then allow the vaccine to continue to be distributed,” he says.

He adds, “I think it’s more likely than not that there’s going to be a resumption in the use of the vaccine for some portion of the population. That should be reassuring to the public.”

To be sure, Dr. Gottlieb believes the US will reach herd immunity, and soon. But he also suspects that COVID likely won’t be going away any time soon. Already, cases have surged worldwide over the past month, and numbers are rising even in India.

Of course, herd immunity is a nebulous concept, and projections can vary widely. One Professor at Johns Hopkins penned a WSJ editorial earlier this year claiming herd immunity would arrive by April, and that rising case numbers can be dismissed as deaths continue to decline. “Experts should level with the public,” he said.

Already, at least 7 states – South Dakota, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Arizona, Oklahoma, Utah, and Tennessee – are already on the cusp of herd immunity. The real answer, of course, is that projections can vary widely – and nobody knows what the future may hold.

Amerians Cases CDC Conspiracy Fact and Theory COVID-19 experimental gene therapies Federal government fully vaccinated Headline News hospitalization Intelwars jabs master plan PCR tests Shots still get infected vaccines

246 “Fully Vaccinated” Michigan Residents Catch COVID-19, 3 Die

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

So much for the COVID jabs being “100% effective” at preventing “serious illness.”

COVID-19 mRNA Shots Are Legally Not Vaccines

Michigan, now the epicenter of the American COVID outbreak, is desperately begging the federal government for more vaccines. But reports about a rash of infections in “fully vaccinated” patients might provoke a rethink.

The Detroit News reported that as many as 246 vaccinated Michigan residents later tested positive for the deadly bug, including three who have died. The cases were reported between Jan. 1 and March 31, and the 246 had a positive test 14 or more days after the last dose in the vaccine series, said Lynn Sutfin, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

“Some of these individuals may ultimately be excluded from this list due to continuing to test positive from a recent infection prior to being fully vaccinated,” she said.

“These cases are undergoing further review to determine if they meet other CDC criteria for determination of potential breakthrough, including the absence of a positive antigen or PCR test less than 45 days prior to the post-vaccination positive test. In general, these persons have been more likely to be asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic compared with vaccinated persons.”

The department had hospitalization data for 117 of the cases, but 129 were incomplete, Sutfin added. The three deaths were all “persons 65 years or older,” and two of them died within three weeks of completion of vaccination, she said. “While the majority of the population develops full immunity within 14 days of completion of their vaccine series, a small proportion appear to take longer to mount a full antibody response.” Of the 117 with data available, 11 were hospitalized, 103 were not hospitalized, and 3 are reported as unknown, Sutfin said.

As of April 4, about 2.95 million residents, or about 36.5% of Michigan’s population, have been vaccinated, either with one or two doses, according to the state website. About 4.7M doses had been administered.

New cases have surged over the last month, pushing the 7-day average to its highest level since late last year. Even deaths have started to creep higher, a possible effect of mutant strains that are spreading faster in the state.

change messaging COVID-19 delay vaccines Disease Dr. anthony fauci government is slavery Headline News Intelwars jabs liars Masks mass vaccination Masters millions slaves vaccinated vaccines wake up

Fauci Wants More People Vaccinated & At A Faster Pace

Head medical tyrant pushing the undesirable vaccines on the public, Dr. Anothony Fauci wants more people vaccinated and as quickly as possible before they figure out what’s really going on. In order to jab more people, Fauci says he opposes the delay of the second dose of COVID-19 vaccines.

According to a report by RT, Fauci said that, while delaying second doses of the vaccines could allow health officials to provide more individuals with their first dose, it also presents risks, such as leaving people with less protection, particularly against new variants of the virus. It also defeats the ruling class’s purpose of getting as many slaves injected as possible before they figure out the damage these “vaccines” are capable of.

Is Fauci in a hurry because some of the slaves have figured out that this vaccine may not be what their masters say it is? Perhaps those not yet vaccinated don’t really want this garbage swimming around in their bloodstream anyway, so they’ll just jab those who have already submitted to the first shot.

Americans have figured out that Fauci’s “flip-flopping” on almost everything has tanked his credibility and trustworthiness. Anyone trusting this fool is delusional. He even said he can’t do that again or he risks destroying the “messaging” to the slaves. The report on Fauci’s remarks also indicated that he was concerned a change in strategy “would be a messaging challenge,” impacting the confidence that Americans have in the strategy that the government has taken to fight the disease if they just say “we changed our mind.”

After Telling The Public to Wear 2 Face Masks, Fauci Says There’s No Evidence That Helps

They Moved The Goalposts…AGAIN!: “It’s Not Over When The Vaccine Arrives”

In the United States (if you can believe the ruling class’s numbers), 50,732,997 people have been given their first injection, with 25,466,405 having got their second dose as of yesterday.  That’s a lot of braindead zombies lining up for a vaccine that doesn’t protect them or others in order to still not go back to a “normal” life after getting it.
