Prejudice doesn’t work unless you ignore some results, exaggerate others, redirect funding, and impose government control.
It appears New Zealand government funding is being selectively granted with the deliberate object of promoting Covid vaccination and vindicating pandemic policies. It is funding 23 Covid studies. One, just one, of the 23 studies will examine vaccine safety.
As for adverse effects of the Covid “vaccines,” it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to conclude either that information is being ignored or record keeping is haphazard and unreliable. It is hard to escape the conclusion that vaccine adverse effects are at the bottom of Ministry of Health priorities. Possibly they would be happy if they were hidden. The current batch of funded research projects geared to stamp out vaccine hesitancy certainly points in that direction.
How selective recording of Covid data and control of Crown entities distorts public information
An article in the New Zealand Herald ‘Flood of Noah-like proportions: The studies revealing Long Covid’s hidden toll in NZ’ by Jaimie Morton predicts that long Covid will cast a decades-long shadow over the health and economy of the nation. We welcome renewed attention on assisting all those affected by the aftermath of Covid infection, but we have some questions.
The article reports that the government is funding a raft of clinical studies to gauge the impact of the pandemic. Each study will receive between $200,000 to $500,000. 23 government-funded studies are listed HERE. Incredibly, 14 of these funded studies focus on how to improve Covid vaccine uptake and reduce vaccine hesitancy. 3 of the studies will focus on assessing long Covid outcomes. 5 studies will assess the impact of the government’s pandemic response.
Just one study will examine vaccine safety. This study is being undertaken by Dr Petousis-Harris, a known vaccine advocate who is co-director of the Global Vaccine Data Network (“GVDN”), an organisation whose policy aim is to fight vaccine hesitancy. Read a discussion of the strange relationship between GVDN and the Ministry of Health HERE.
It appears government funding is being selectively granted with the deliberate object of promoting Covid vaccination and vindicating pandemic policies. If you ignore vaccine safety, the results will be biased. See HERE for a discussion of how the design of scientific studies of Covid outcomes can be selectively adjusted in order to persuade people that all negative outcomes of the pandemic are due to Covid infection and nothing else.
Studies need to be designed without any preconceptions prejudicial to outcomes. They need to fully distinguish between the outcomes for the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. If they don’t, vaccine injury will be hidden and falsely attributed to long Covid.
