    Recently there have been a lot of misinformation about what Pfizer announced regarding their vaccines effectiveness against the Omnicron varient.

    It is unfortunate that some people, regardless of faith, resort to misinformation.

    I'm not saying the vaccine is or is not effective.

    But here is what was put out by Pfizer:

    During an interview with Yahoo Finance on Jan. 10, speaking about the Omicron variant, Bourla said: “We know that the two doses of a vaccine offer very limited protection, if any. The three doses with a booster, they offer reasonable protection against hospitalization and deaths. Against deaths, I think very good, and less protection against infection.” ( youtu.be/lhMbKyDq9_w?t=96 )

    Seeing as we have scores of "fully vaccinated" individuals coming down with the virus, it obviously is not.

    Here is a summary (if the link does not work):

    • Preliminary laboratory studies demonstrate that three doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine neutralize the Omicron variant (B.1.1.529 lineage) while two doses show significantly reduced neutralization titers
    • Data indicate that a third dose of BNT162b2 increases the neutralizing antibody titers by 25-fold compared to two doses against the Omicron variant; titers after the booster dose are comparable to titers observed after two doses against the wild-type virus which are associated with high levels of protection
    • As 80% of epitopes in the spike protein recognized by CD8+ T cells are not affected by the mutations in the Omicron variant, two doses may still induce protection against severe disease
    • The companies continue to advance the development of a variant-specific vaccine for Omicron and expect to have it available by March in the event that an adaption is needed to further increase the level and duration of protection – with no change expected to the companies’ four billion dose capacity for 2022

    Don't forget Donald Trump. He has a lot of gallows, and has insisted every American should be vaccinated as all three vaccines are safe and effective.

    Liberal former President, I guess. But I liked him.

    Has Pfizer ever lied, and I mean, lied, about anything?

    Who knows. They don't advertise that Robitussin caught syrup tastes horrible.

    My friend has had both vaccines here in the UK. Last Monday she got her first booster, and later in the week, she tested positive for Covid. Her husband is negative, their son was positive the one day, and then negative the next!

    These tests are probably for the common cold, which is the time of the year to get. Now Israel says that even 4 jabs won't work!
