24 out of every 25 Australian adults received a primary two-dose Covid vaccination last year, mostly with mRNA shots from Pfizer and Moderna. Australians were also very accepting of boosters, with more than 7 out of 10 adults getting a third shot.Yet 2022 has proven disastrous for Australia, both for Covid and public health generally.
Covid has torn through Australia this year, causing far more deaths than in 2020 or 2021 – and nearly all the deaths are in the vaccinated and boosted. Last week, the state of New South Wales reported only four of 75 deaths occurred in the unvaccinated, while 62 occurred in people who had received at least one booster.
Worse, overall deaths are up almost 20 percent and hospitals have faced serious strain.
Now Australia has – quietly – all-but given up on Covid vaccines for most adults. In a late August report, the Australian government-run group that advises the government on vaccinations said healthy adults under 50 do not need a second Covid booster.alexberenson.substack The worldwide flight from mRNA shots continues
