Magic potion or snake oil? An honest look at the international data.
The key findings are that there's no justification for vaccine passports or mandates, even in a healthcare setting. Vaccines may only provide some short term net benefit for the elderly or health compromised individuals but can increase infection risk immediately after vaccination and boosters.
Here's a summary of the key findings which are supported by multiple citations and references.
Both vaccine study data and real-world data reviewed above suggest that since omicron, vaccine protection against infection starts at 50% and drops to zero within a few months, whereas protection against severe disease and death in senior citizens starts at 75% and decreases to 50% within a few months.
Furthermore, there is no difference in viral load and infectiousness between vaccinated and unvaccinated people; no evidence that vaccination reduces the risk of mild or moderate covid; and no evidence that vaccination reduces the risk of long covid in non-senior citizens. Prior covid infection continues to provide a more durable protection against re-infection.
Thus, while the risk/benefit ratio may still positive in senior citizens and other risk groups (based on current evidence), this does not appear to be the case in healthy young adults and children. Danish professor in global health and vaccine expert, Dr. Christine Stabell-Benn, recently argued that she "wouldnâ€™t recommend vaccination of anybody under 50 years of age.â€
Furthermore, both "vaccine passportsâ€ and vaccine mandates, even for health care workers, have no medical or epidemiological
