A look at the New Zealand data released under the Official Information Act
Hundreds of deaths associated with vaccination
Lessons can be learned. National reconciliation is possible.
This release presents the association between weekly vaccination totals and all cause mortality for the 60+ age cohort.
This has only been possible because of our unique situation in NZ. Protected at our borders, we have a very low incidence of Covid and therefore the short-term impact of vaccination on health can be reviewed in isolation from the confounding factors of Covid infections and deaths.
This has been a painful release to write because it involves personal tragedies affecting families and loved ones.
Some of whom are not actually aware of the causes of their loss or in other cases have been misled through preventable mistakes of government and civil servants.
For some time it has been clear that the rate of adverse effects proximate to mRNA Covid vaccination is unprecedented throughout NZ vaccination history.
Adverse effects reported to CARM are running at 30 times that of flu vaccines. It is also apparent that many of the adverse effects are very serious indeed.
Medsafe has continued to maintain that they are unable to determine which effects and deaths are related to vaccination.
I have previously written about indications pointing to a causal relationship between a wide range of adverse effects and vaccination.
Effects range from those already admitted such as myocarditis to others recognised in a leaked Pfizer document dated April 30th 2021 including
- respiratory illness
- internal bleeding
- kidney and liver disease
- neurological disease
- thrombotic events including stroke
- immune suppression
- and many more.
This is not an exhaustive list.
What Does Dr. Ashley Bloomfield Have to Say?
On the 28th October I wrote to Dr. Ashley Bloomfield pointing to the unusually high level of adverse effects and requesting that reporting of adverse effects should be mandatory rather than voluntary.
Yesterday, December 17th, I received a tardy reply from Astrid Koorneef, Director of the National Immunisation programme writing on behalf of Dr Ashley Bloomfield.
In this, Astrid specifically rejects my request saying: “An accurate measurement of all adverse events is not required” and further suggested I confine myself to trusting MoH websites, rather than public domain sources. Her letter offered this view of the determination of causal relationships:
“We are aware of reports circulating in social media where an adverse event has a temporal association with the vaccination.
This is not indicative of a causal relationship to the vaccine. Causal relationships between AEFIs and the vaccine are established through robust pharmacovigilance examinations that take into consideration global reporting of the adverse event, the background rate for the condition, and safety signal analysis.”
In other words, Ashley Bloomfield wants us to believe that an adverse effect rate 30 times that of the flu vaccine is coincidence.
Yet Hill’s standard criteria of medical causality includes repeated temporal association as a criteria of greatest importance. He discusses this first, in his seminal text still in use today.
It cannot be reasonably held, as Astrid asserts on behalf of MoH, that such associations are not indicative.
Speaking as a scientist, the first evidential alert to causality is always temporal association.
Of necessity association should prompt further investigations.
Scientists then ask questions such as:
- Is the association plausible?
- Does it occur in different settings?
- and Are rates of occurrence significant?
To answer these questions mandatory reporting is essential.
Astrid refers to the need for robust pharmacovigilance, this is the name given to safety and assessment protocols used in drug trials.
In drug trials, mandatory reporting is always required. Astrid also states:
