Most Uncensored readers I am sure are resolutely Anti-Vax in all respects. Which is fine and an informed choice everyone should be entitled to make without prejudice. Some though, are specifically opposed to the mRNA jab.
What are the options?
The question I get asked most is “what about the options?”. Ivermectin for whatever reason (and I’m sure everyone subscribes to a theory or has a few clues) has been banned from prescription in NZ.
New Zealand currently only offers the Pfizer Cominarty jab. There are however, vaccine alternatives that are non-mRNA. While Astrazeneca is associated with some concerning adverse reactions (blood clots specifically) many have enquired about Novavax. New Zealand has agreed to purchase this vaccine, but the details are poorly communicated.
We’ve agreed with Novavax to purchase 10.72 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. This vaccine needs two doses. Enough for 5.36 million people.
Following Medsafe’s regulatory decision on the safety and effectiveness of the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine, and once delivery timeframes have been confirmed, we will consider the use of Novavax in New Zealand.”
This vaccine is non-mRNA. According the data it is highly effective, and the adverse reactions are said to be fewer and of less severity than its mRNA counterparts. I stress that this all depends on how much stock the reader takes in the data. All I can say is “Do your own research”.
This author has Emailed the NZ MOH with a request for clarification on the availability, roll out, if it will be available as a stand-alone option etc. on this non-mRNA alternative. I will update this posting with any response received.
Meanwhile here’s some info for anyone considering a traditional vax alternative:
What is Novavax?
Novavax is an American company formed in the 1980s to develop experimental vaccines that has never before brought a successful vaccine to market.
Despite this, in 2020 it got a massive contract from the Trump administration to develop a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 as part of its ‘Warp Speed’ effort.
New Zealand’s vaccine rollout so far has relied entirely on a single supplier, but that appears set to change.
Millions of doses of a vaccine developed by Novavax are expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2022, COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins told Stuff on Wednesday. Whether it will be used as an alternative to the Pfizer-BioNTech jab, as a booster or both isn’t yet known.
Trails to date have found NVX-CoV2373, as it’s called, is highly effective against early strains of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and perhaps less likely to cause side effects than the Pfizer jab…READ MORE
mRNA vaccines may have been the first to get results from Phase 3 clinical trials, but that’s because of superior trial management, not secret vaccine sauce. For now, they are harder and more expensive to manufacture and distribute than traditional types of vaccines, and their side effects are more common and more severe. The latest Novavax data confirm that it’s possible to achieve the same efficacy against COVID-19 with a more familiar technology that more people may be inclined to trust. (The mRNA vaccines delivered efficacy rates of 95 and 94 percent against the original coronavirus strain in Phase 3 trials, as compared with 96 percent for Novavax in its first trial, and now 90 percent against a mixture of variants.Novavax Is Now the Best COVID-19 Vaccine – The Atlantic
If this vaccine is everything its cracked up to be, then why is the NZ Government pushing the Pfizer jab so hard? A non-conspiratorial answer might relate to expiry date or dollars. Those inclined to speculate further might suspect there’s a little “something extra” in the mRNA vaccine that has a hidden purpose.
Many readers, as I suggested in the intro, will simply prefer Natural Immunity to ANY vaccine, traditional or new-fangled.
