Simple Math Says Boosters Won't Be Tolerated
ACIP Says 12 to 17 year-olds "should" be boosted five months after their last dose. Math says ACIP is insane. Their plan leads to 192 boosters for those dependent on vaccines for their immunity.
ACIP recently voted to recommend that 12- to 17-years olds “should” boost every five months. Based on no data for that age group, of course. So let’s turn to logic and reason.
Most 12- to 17-year olds will likely live to about 80 years old.
That’s 960 months.
That means boosting every five months for life means 192 boosters.
If you’re vaccinating and boosting, are you going to accept 192 boosters AND chronic risk of COVID? Especially since the vaccine now appears to make infection more likely? Do you see now that you bought your kool-aid from the wrong stand?
Science shows that when infected, the vaccinated have similar levels of virus in their nasopharyngeal tract as the never-infected, unvaccinated.
As Vinay Prasad says “We all know people - and we’re going to continue to see people - who are vaccinated and who nevertheless got sick with COVID”.
I guess we had better come up with #PlanB. Thank goodness we already have.
