Duke vaccine study pediatrician Dr. Emmanuel Walter Jr. proves children don’t need flu or Covid19 vaccines, Quotes overstated death figures and gives flawed advice to parents, Vested interest in vaccinations?
“Furthermore, when you get vaccinated you know that you are now subject to the risks of the vaccine,” he said. “If you don’t get vaccinated, you only have a chance of contracting Covid, and therefore a chance of assuming the risks of Covid—it’s not 100% certain you’ll get Covid just because you were not vaccinated.”…UCI Medical Ethics director
“Why are we vaccinating healthy adults when 81 percent of Covid-19 cases are mild and there is a 99 percent survival rate. Why are we testing vaccines on children who are minimally impacted by the disease?”…Citizen Wells
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″
Where does Duke vaccine study pediatrician Dr. Emmanuel Walter Jr. get his data?
He vastly overstates Covid19 deaths in children.
From Duke Today October 27, 2021.
“The coming COVID vaccine for children ages 5-11 is safe, effective and the best way for parents to protect their kids from the insidious disease, a Duke doctor who led a trial examining the vaccine’s effectiveness said Wednesday.
Dr. Emmanuel Walter Jr., a pediatrician and chief medical officer at the Duke Human Vaccine Institute, said government regulators’ expected approval of the Pfizer vaccine for use in young kids can be a true game-changer — if enough parents choose it for their children.
“My advice to parents is this is the best way to protect your child from serious illness and potentially death from COVID, … get them vaccinated,” Walter said. “It’s the best tool we have. By all means I would recommend and suggest they get the vaccine.”
Walter led a trial at Duke examining the vaccine’s effects on youngsters, a study that evaluated several different doses. His study and others found the best results in that age group came from a 10-microgram dose, which is one-third of what adults receive. That is the dose the Food and Drug Administration is expected to soon approve for use in children 5-11.
In a virtual media briefing with reporters Wednesday, Walter discussed his study findings and the overall vaccine trial process, potential side effects, and the need for herd immunity in American communities.”
“On how many young kids need to be vaccinated to reach community protection
“Without achieving a certain level of protection in the community, you may not get the full benefit of the vaccine to achieve what we call herd protection or community protection. In fact, vaccination rates with these particular vaccines, with this virus, probably has to be on the level of 80, 85 percent to really achieve that herd or community protection from infection.”
“If you look at the population as a whole and consider that children are roughly about 20 percent of the population, getting as many vaccinated as possible will lead to overall population vaccination.”
On vaccinating kids to protect others
“We have to be able to afford children the same protection from COVID through vaccination that we afford to adults. That is the right thing to do. We do need to realize that with this current delta surge, children now account for about 25 percent of reported cases of COVID. That’s really been a little bit different with Delta than it was earlier in the pandemic. Part of that may be related to the fact that we have a larger portion of the adult population vaccinated right now.”
“We’ve been kind of lulled by this thought that yes the pandemic is worse … for older adults and adults with co-morbidities. But children aren’t totally spared from COVID. When I last looked the other day there had been 750 deaths from COVID in children under age 18, 160 deaths in this age group for which we’re now considering approval or authorization of the vaccine, between the ages of 5 and 11. And that’s way more deaths than occur due to influenza in a typical year. So if you kind of put it in that perspective in terms of health, we really do need to get children vaccinated.”
“It’s really to allow kids the freedom to be kids and do all the things comfortably that kids do. Go to school, do sports activities, other after-school activities and recreational activities and do the normal things kids want to do.””
Why is Dr. Walter lying in the statements above?
Does he have a vested interest?
For starters, the vaccines are not working as promised.
They do not prevent getting or spreading Covid19.
Children are mostly little affected by the disease and rarely die from it.
The natural immunity from having it is superior to the vaccine.
The defining paragraph below is most concerning and revealing:
“When I last looked the other day there had been 750 deaths from COVID in children under age 18, 160 deaths in this age group for which we’re now considering approval or authorization of the vaccine, between the ages of 5 and 11. And that’s way more deaths than occur due to influenza in a typical year. So if you kind of put it in that perspective in terms of health, we really do need to get children vaccinated.”
CDC Director Walensky was just caught in the same lie:
“She was interviewed by Judy Woodruff on PBS last night.
At around 2:30 she states:
“Covid has been one of the top 10 killers of our pediatric population.”
“We know that we have seen over 700 pediatric deaths over the last year and a half.””
“The context of the interview was vaccinating 5 – 11 year olds.
Walensky quotes a death number of over 700 for the entire pediatric population, 0 – 17 year olds.
The actual CDC number for that population is 558 and that number is overstated.
“ Deaths with confirmed or presumed COVID-19”
Not all confirmed.
And as Ms. Walensky admitted weeks ago, most of the deaths listed had comorbidities and were not just from Covid.
The figure for Covid19 only is approx. 6 percent of the deaths.”
The CDC data is presented as deaths with Covid19 not from Covid19.
The Covid19 only percentage of 6 % applied to Dr. Walter’s number of 160 for the 5 to 11 year old group yields 9.6 Covid only deaths.
Most of the deaths were due to other causes and the patient just happened to have had Covid19.
Dr. Walter has minimized the annual flu deaths.
Apparently the from Covid deaths are actually less.
What Dr. Walter is really saying is that children do not need to be vaccinated for the flu or for Covid19 because of the miniscule impact.
