Vaccine Data War 2021 - Aus to use AstraZ regardless (General)

"Health Minister Greg Hunt said he had received advice from Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly as well as the Science and Technical Advisory Group, chaired by Health Department secretary Brendan Murphy, that there was “no evidence” the vaccine would be ineffective against severe disease and death from COVID-19 regardless of the variants." (paywall)

Paul Kelly is Australia's Peter Daszak - whatever he says you can assume the opposite.

The 'no evidence' claim stems from the fact that the latest study results that showed AstraZeneca was ineffective against preventing mild to medium Covid symptoms was carried out on under 65's.

As over 65's are the only ones prone to severe symptoms there were no significant levels of severe disease reported in either the control group or the jab group.

A normal person would conclude that seeing how it doesn't prevent mild to medium symptoms it probably doesn't prevent severe symptoms either. Therefore we can stop giving it to people - at least until studies on over 65's are done.

But our intrepid health experts insist that it's full-steam ahead:

Health Minister, Greg Hunt: “The advice is very, very clear and that is there’s currently no evidence to indicate a reduction in the effectiveness of either the AstraZeneca or the Pfizer vaccines in preventing severe disease and death.”

“(O)ur fundamental direction is absolutely clear. The vaccine program in Australia continues to be on track.” (even if it is useless and possibly dangerous)

So this is the standard for vaccine testing now - if the tests haven't been done - therefore there is no evidence that it doesn't work - therefore it's fine!

Let's not forget that a bunch of countries including Germany, France, and Sweden have banned AstraZeneca for over 65's due to safety and/or inefficacy reasons.
