This answer will start with a quote by Bill Gates, who has substantial influence in the patented pharmaceutical world.
“The vaccines we have prevent severe disease and death very well but they are missing two key things,” Gates said to a question about what would make the biggest difference in ending the pandemic.
“First they still allow infections (‘breakthrough’) and the duration appears to be limited. We need vaccines that prevent re-infection and have many years of duration.”
Albert Bourla, the President of Pfizer, agreed in a March 13/22 TV interview.
Dr. Bourla stated, “Right now, the way that we have seen, it is necessary, a fourth booster right now. The protection that you are getting from the third, it is good enough, actually quite good for hospitalizations and deaths. It’s not that good against infections, but doesn’t last very long. But we are just submitting those data to the FDA and then we will see what the experts also will say outside Pfizer.”
In hind sight, we now know that these COVID-19 vaccines don’t work well and, if they do, it is only for a short time! A more significant question is whether people will lose trust in all vaccines and public health ‘experts’? Even the original phase III clinical study of the efficacy and safety of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine failed to show any reduction in COVID-19 deaths in the vaccinated recipients compared to the unvaccinated participants (see Table S4) https://www.nejm.org/doi/suppl/10.1056/NEJMoa2110345/suppl_file/nejmoa2110345_appendix.pdf.
Since we know now that the SARS CoV-2 vaccines haven’t been effective relative to what a traditional vaccine is expected to achieve, let’s look at the cost/benefit ratio. We now have an unprecedentedly prejudiced society in Canada relative to ‘vax/antivax’ with the division lines encouraged by the Prime Minister. We have restrictions on travel and livelihoods which is what sparked the Trucker’s Convoy. It has separated families and friends in many cases. Emergency measures were briefly invoked and banking institutions required to cooperate with government. This does not encourage international or domestic investment in Canada. Furthermore, we have adverse events due to vaccination which are more for mRNA-based and adenovirus –based vaccines than any other vaccines in history. As of March 11, 2022, there has been 13,964 deaths in the US alone linked to three COVID-19 vaccines in the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), and nearly 800,000 reports of COVID-19 vaccine injury.
This is more than all of the vaccine injury and death reports for all of the other vaccines tracked in the 30 year history of the VAERS system put together, and the VAERS is thought to represent less than 1% of all actual cases of vaccine injury
While it may be debatable how many people have actually died as a direct consequence of COVID-19 vaccination, the number is very significant. Check it out here–
In short, Canada has paid a substantial price for its ‘vaccines are the magic bullet’ COVID-19 efforts with little benefit. The reductions in severe COVID-19 and associated deaths over the last year can just as easily be attributed to the acquisition of natural immunity in our population, which is typical for pandemic respiratory virus outbreaks historically.
