WTF? Canada and WHO Sure AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccines Are Safe to Use


Health Editor’s Note: AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines are not currently approved for emergency use in the U.S.  Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved for emergency use and people in the U.S. are encouraged to take whichever vaccine they are first offered.  The upside with the J&J vaccine is that it is a one time dose. Every person vaccinated is one less person this coronavirus can use to spread and make more of itself ….Carol

RPT-UPDATE 1-Canada sure that all COVID-19 vaccines are safe, including AstraZeneca doses – PM

By Reuters Staff

OTTAWA, March 15 (Reuters) – Canadian health experts are sure all COVID-19 vaccines being administered in the country are safe, including those made by AstraZeneca PLC, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters on Monday.

Germany became the latest in a number of European nations that have stopped using AstraZeneca doses on Monday after reports of recipients falling ill.

“Our health experts … collect data continuously and they assure us that all the vaccines offered in Canada are safe and effective, including those from AstraZeneca,” Trudeau told a televised news conference in Montreal.

“We are obviously watching what is happening with a specific batch in Europe. We can reassure all Canadians that no AstraZeneca doses came from the same batch,” he said.

Canada approved the AstraZeneca vaccine last month and has ordered 20 million doses. Ottawa has also secured an additional 2 million doses through an agreement with the Serum Institute of India and expects to get them by mid-May.

Trudeau spoke at an event with Francois Legault, premier of the populous province of Quebec, who said the provincial health ministry felt the AstraZeneca vaccine posed no risks. (Reporting by David Ljunggren; Editing by Richard Chang)

  1. What is the World Health Organization and why does it even exist? I thought the USA had enough of their own experts on virology. You know the VT guys stood in line to get theirs. Please cooperate. And, don’t worry what the taxpayers are forking out for these millions of doses. I’m sure the great negotiator got a good deal under Operation Warpspeed.

    • I’m preparing FOIA request for copies of contracts by DOD or other agencies. Info hard to come by. Neither Trump nor Biden are warranted contracting officers who can legally purchase anything with appropriated funds. Of course, the DOD level purchasing records haven’t been reconciled or audited in years. I’m pretty sure General Perna didn’t exert pressure here. General who?

    • If there are discrepancies between contracted/payable quantities and delivered quantities (ie skimmed for Trump), a good audit will find it. But, the DOD can stonewall that for years. Like that mountain of M16s missing in the Middle East.

  2. Good. Then the gov lackeys that support this stuff can show up in line with the public to get theirs. No, I don’t mean in a photo op by themselves and a nurse. I mean in line with everyone else getting the same dose from the same batch. No fake jab, no distilled water, no BS. Yeah, that’ll happen.
