Fact check: Covid vaccines reduce hospitalisations, oh and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year dearest supporters and critics!

This week we investigate the often touted claim that covid vaccines reduce hospitalisations by 90%. Where did this figure come from? What is it based upon? In our latest video we take a deep dive into some of the literature investigating the method used to determine this magical figure. What do you think we discover?

Our references in order of appearance:

Thanks so much for stopping by this week. Sending all the best to you and your family for a healthful and truthful new year.

    Hello Thanks for your posts, however, Im a bit confused by some of your links. These in particular are supporting the need for vaccines? Am I misunderstanding?

    Thankyou x

    1. Thanks Vicki, we are drawing on a large cross-section of media, independent commentary and scientific literature to build these videos. We draw on counter arguments and examine them as well as arguments from those we regard as peers or are on a similar page. The Guardian article is used in the context of the video, so maybe check out the video for that context. We used 3 Lancet papers. The one you mention (the second reference you quote) was previously referenced in the script as another example of simulating or projecting (fudging) the data, rather than drawing from real world data derived from clinical trials. Check out the method section to see what we mean. Because we like to keep the videos under 15 minutes that part got edited out. We left the link in by accident, but nonetheless it serves as an example of how some figures are fabricated in the scientific community and how we need to examine everything closely, specifically models and literature that are built upon industry-captured papers (paid for by Pharma), such as the 2013 Euro Surveillance paper that Professor Bendell found as the questionable source of so many subsequent papers that use ‘test-negative case analysis’ design as a simulated form to massage the numbers, again as we discuss in the video. Hope this helps.
