Medsafe: Benefit Risk Balance of Covid-19 “Vaccine” is Unclear

I recommend everyone read Cranmer’s Substack article summarising a number of OIA requests on the vaccine approval process of the Covid19 shot in New Zealand. “Safe and Effective” – the mantra we were sold – was a lie. It was not known to be safe or effective.

The Pfizer vaccine was approved for use by New Zealand’s regulator, Medsafe on 3 February 2021. The development was immediately welcomed by then Prime Minister Ardern who stated, “Medsafe’s decision is the culmination of a rigorous assessment process over many months to ensure the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is safe and effective to use here. It is informed by the most up-to-date medical and scientific data. We can have confidence in their decision.”

However, in reality, the government’s representation of Medsafe’s assessment was overstated. Specifically, Medsafe’s clinical assessment found:

  • “The duration of the vaccine protection has not been established beyond two months.”
  • “At this stage, there is limited evidence of protection against severe disease.”
  • “There is no long term safety follow-up information.”
  • “Vaccine prevention of asymptomatic infection and disease transmission has not been established.”

Therefore when it made its benefit risk assessment, Medsafe concluded:

The benefit risk balance of Comirnaty (COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine) for active immunisation to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-CoV-2 in individuals 16 years of age and older, is not clear. At this stage, there is evidence only for short-term protection, and longer-term safety data are lacking. However, experience with the vaccine is accumulating rapidly.

Meanwhile, in the UK, a brave MP continues to speak out on the tragedy of the shots. The video below shows an almost empty chamber, where as the speech started, the various politicians scarpered out, presumably so they would not have to hear anything that might hurt their pitiful minds. YouTube initially censored the speech soon after it was posted, but due to the outcry (and probably competition from other streaming services) has allowed it back. If it vanishes once more, here is the Rumble version.

To prevent just one healthy adult aged between 50 and 59 from being hospitalised due to covid the Government’s own data states that 43,600 people have to be given an autumn booster jab. With a serious adverse event rate of 1 in 800 that means that in the healthy 50 to 59 year old group, as a result of using the mRNA boosters, 55 people would die or be put into hospital with side-effects to prevent one single case of covid presenting in hospital.

The same data shows that for the healthy younger people the number needed to be boosted to prevent a single hospital admission with Covid-19 is far higher. 92,500 boosted jabs were required to be administered to prevent one hospitalisation in the healthy 40 to 49 year old group, which would simultaneously put 116 people at probability of death or serious adverse reaction into hospital from the jab.

The healthy 30 to 39 year old group required age group required 210,400 booster jabs to prevent a single, covid hopitalisation; so 263 of this group will have been into hospital or sadly, died as a result of the booster side effects, just to keep one covid case out of hospital.

But the data gets worse because hospitalisation does not necessarily mean a serious medical intervention such as intubation or oxygen. To prevent severe hospitalisation from covid-19, the numbers needed to be boosted become astronomical … [10:17]

Back to Medsafe in New Zealand. How on earth was the Pfizer shot approved for use here? The answer is that despite Medsafe’s concerns about lack of safety and efficacy data, a number of individuals making up the Medicines Assessment Advisory Committee (MAAC), a group whose members remain a state secret to this day, recommend going full steam ahead, regardless.

Somewhat strangely, although MAAC is a statutory committee under the Medicines Act, it has, since the outbreak of Covid, kept the identity of its members confidential. Requests for details of MAAC’s membership has been refused by the Ministry of Health when requested via the Official Information Act on the basis that they might be harassed. It seems an odd position to take given that the membership of various other advisory groups are known, and that MAAC has played a pivotal role in the approval of the vaccine.

MACC told Medsafe to approve the shots, and Chris James on behalf of Medsafe complied. The MACC members presumably thought that the missing safety and efficacy data would be gathered as people were injected and managed to convince others of this view. In other words, they saw nothing wrong with using the population of New Zealand as their guinea pigs, either believing or hoping the shots would be safe and effective. They took a gamble that did not pay off and now they are too afraid to reveal themselves.

Now that billions of doses have been injected into people worldwide, data from various nations around the world is showing neither safety or nor efficacy. The response of political leadership is denial and silence. As various individuals try and show the data to those that have the power to stop the shots, the powerful ignore and deny. The mainstream media and online platforms run interference. The whole situation is deadly serious and outrageous, yet those tasked with the safety of NZ’ers from medical malfeasance are missing in action.

    The actual facts are oozing forth, albeit slowly.
    In NZ we give him a gong. For obedience?

    Fear is a weapon that has been used on this country. How ironic is it that fear permeates MAAC and other such bodies now that facts are coming to light?

    My key questions where always what was the risk and what was the reward for a vaccine.

    Never answered

    I declined to take the jab at the cost of well remunerated contract – it hurt me financially in a significant way, but health comes first.

    I had concerns about long term safety, I had concerns about they way the message was pushed and boy was it pushed. It all felt wrong at a gut level, but I have had training in Risk Management as well and when I did a cold head review of all the factors lock down and vaccines didn’t stack up.

    I never bought into lockdowns as I felt the flow on effects to the economy and peoples health would be significant. The current state of play economically is a direct result of lockdown and the unexplained excess deaths across the western world kind of vindicate my stance there….

    I hope as the truth emerges people are held accountable – they have to. Not harshly punished, not scapegoated.

    BUT held accountable, not allowed to hold decision making roles in the health or political system again and lessons taken from the experience to make sure such political advantage motivated decision making divorced from a solid fact base can not intrude in the next and subsequent pandemics

      Re Risk/Reward or Cost/Benefit we now know from none other than the current British PM, that even inside Boris’s cabinet they were banned from even asking about the costs of lockdown. Only the upside of fewer Covid deaths was permitted.

      And nobody is being held accountable and in this world that simply follows other such, smaller events. I don’t think this is due to political or ideological corruption – all this was done by governments across the political spectrum, Sweden excepted – but due to philosophical corruption; being held accountable is to be judged to have done wrong and that’s not nice.

      So this will happen again, even if the MOH’s Flu Pandemic Plan is not updated to recommend lockdowns, mask mandates and vaccine mandates. It currently does not have them and was binned as a result, so they’d do this again in a heartbeat.
