Risk:Benefit Calculation – Informed Decision

Decision about taking a vaccine is as much about data and statistics as it is about medicine. This is why when people say I follow my doctor’s advice, I wonder if he/she knows the numbers (most don’t) or just follows the guidelines.

Why are you taking the COVID vaccines?

Overall deaths higher from the vaccine than COVID – Pfizer clinical trial

Vaccines are injected into healthy people/children, there needs to be extra scrutiny for their:

  • Necessity – prevent getting and spreading serious, widespread diseases with no safe treatment alternatives. This can vary based on population demographics and health status (e.g.: age, # and type of comorbidities)
  • Safety – including long-term safety established through long-term animal safety and human clinical trials. Including the level of adverse acceptable for the protection provided.
  • Efficacy and effectiveness – adequate and long-term immunity and transmission prevention. Vaccines for ever mutating pathogens are often not justified, especially non-sterilizing vaccines that allow vaccine induced escape mutants.
