This week, Ottawa doubled-down on its policy of treating the population like human guinea pigs by opening the door to mixing vaccines
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau may not be able to attend the G7 meeting in Britain in June, because he may not be eligible to receive his second shot until Aug. 28, due to Canada’s four-month dosage-delay policy. On May 5, a bombshell study of the Pfizer vaccine, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed the folly of what Ottawa is doing.
It was conducted in Qatar and the data demonstrates the importance of receiving two doses administered 21 days apart, when it comes to fighting two variants, both of which are circulating in Canada. The study shows that Pfizer’s effectiveness against the British and South African variants are minimal after only one dose , but become 89.5 per cent and 75 per cent effective, 14 days after the second dose. Trudeau should be forced to respond to this result and to justify the scientific basis for this country’s dose rationing. But he won’t, because the policy is not based on science, as Pfizer Canada’s CEO made clear in a recent interview.
This week, a Canadian Press story quoted vaccine expert Dr. Peter Hotez, the dean of the school of tropical medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, who said he «was really astonished» when he found out that «about a third of received a single dose and essentially no one’s gotten fully vaccinated. » Fortunately, some Canadians are able to take matters into their own hands.
