Canadian officials are defending Canada’s mix-and-match approach to vaccinations after the World Health Organization warned Monday about “dangerous trends” in individual vaccination strategies, including mixing and matching.
In an online briefing, the WHO’s chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan suggested to reporters that mixing and matching is dangerous because there is not currently enough data to support it.
“It’s a little bit of a dangerous trend here. We are in a data-free, evidence-free zone as far as mix and match,” Swaminathan said in response to a question about booster shots.
Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunizations, the body that advises federal health officials on vaccines, has said that the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines against COVID-19 can be used interchangeably when a second dose of the same vaccine is not readily available.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Health Minister Christine Elliott said Ontario plans to continue following the NACI recommendations.
“No data currently exist on the interchangeability of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines,” the NACI said in its recommendation. “However, there is no reason to believe that mRNA vaccine series completion with a different authorized mRNA vaccine product will result in any additional safety issues or deficiency in protection.”
“… there is no reason to believe” — the new gold standard of scientific enquiry as it relates to Covid vaccines. … umm, yeah, we’ll follow the science. This sounds arrogant and reckless to me.
Addendum: Perhaps this is why now former surgeon Dr Francis Christian was cancelled by Univ of Saskatchewan where he was a clinical professor. Dr. Christian was fired by the Saskatchewan Health Authority after he expressed medical concerns over vaccinating children and in favor of informed consent for parents. Informed consent means that patients must be made aware of risks, benefits, and alternatives to the intervention. Government, MSM, social media and Big Pharma continue to censor discussion and concerns of global experts. This is the antithesis of informed consent (go to 7:45 of video for discussion). Canada has taken the position that children as young as 12 can make the unilateral decision to take The Jab, without parental consent. Further …
“… mRNA has never been authorized by Health Canada or CDC for full and complete authorization. It is under Interim Authorization in Canada. In the US under Emergency Use Authorization.” There is no emergency for children, where, in Canada .003% of children would normally expect to die of Covid, which is less than the seasonal flu.”
“Ivermectin is one of the safest drugs known to mankind … It can end the pandemic … Hundreds of thousands of lives could have been saved if Ivermectin was allowed for use,” he states. He also mentions that Ivermectin and other treatments – for example, those promoted by the Frontline Doctors – have been proven to be extremely effective and safe, which cannot be said for the experimental COVID-19 shots.” Christian explains that the blocking of treatments to cure the virus “could be considered a crime against humanity.”
re: censorship (go to 44:00) “… the inventor of Ivermectin was on YouTube explaining how the drug likely works against viruses. YouTube took him down. The inventor, the Nobel prize winner (for inventing Ivermectin) , explaining how Ivermectin works against disease. Under who’s orders? I don’t know. Why its happening? I don’t know. You can reach your own conclusions.”
