Interpretation: Pneumococcal vaccination does not appear
to be effective in preventing pneumonia, even in populations
for whom the vaccine is currently recommended.

Wow, that's nice to know.

Are all the national news going to report it so that we all know, like they did with flu shot propaganda? I guess not.


Quote:
Trials of higher quality (i.e.,those with a double-blind design and adequate concealment
of allocation) showed little evidence of a protective vaccine effect, regardless of the study population and setting
Quote:
countries that have introduced pneumococcal conjugate vaccines into childhood immunization programs can reasonably expect to experience reductions in the incidence of invasive
pneumococcal disease, even among unvaccinated adults,because of reduced transmission of vaccine-type pneumococci in the population
Are we going to have another HIB?

P.S. How many doctors are reading this?

This is the "pneumonia" vax they want all seniors to get right?? This is totally different than the PCV (Prevnar) correct?? Just want to clarify.

If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson.
