UPDATE: SLOWDOWN IN GETTING THE VAX

In our 1 December 2020 issue, we reported that although COVID vaccines had not been rolled out yet, the Ad Council had plans in play for the general public to buy their “It’s great to get vaccinated” sales pitch.

Lisa Sherman, the Ad Council’s chief executive, told The New York Times, “We’re working in advance so that once those vaccines are proven to be safe and approved by all the right people, we’re ready to go.”

Since then, despite over $100 million having been spent in the “Get Vaccinated” promotional push from political leaders, “health experts,” and a massive celebrity campaign... the U.S. has reported jab declines over the past two weeks. 

Last Thursday, The New York Times, under the sub-heading “Slowdown,” reported that “President Biden last night celebrated the speed of the country’s vaccination program. And he deserves a lot of credit for it,” and “the U.S. has given at least one shot to more than half of adults.” 

They noted, however, that “the average number of daily shots have declined almost 20 percent in the past two weeks.”

According to a Kaiser Family Foundation Poll initiated in March:

“20 percent of U.S. adults said they would either not get vaccinated or would do so only if required. Another 17 percent said they wanted to wait until the vaccine had been available for longer and they could see how it affected others. Put those two groups together and you could see that the country is starting to run low on unvaccinated adults who are eager to get a shot…

In the U.S., the vaccination slowdown is alarming precisely because of how bad COVID is, and how powerful the vaccines are.”

TREND FORECAST: As we have been forecasting, rules will continue to be put in place that will make it difficult for people to travel, work, and play if they do not get a COVID vaccination. 

What is barely mentioned in the media, but as we have been reporting, are the significant amount of police and military personal who are resisting the jab. Yet, when the stories are run by the media about this class of vax resistors, Presstitutes do not denounce them as conspiracy theorists or categorize them as anti-vaxxers. 

On the military front, however, the White House will declare that all troops must get the vaccine... and many cities and states will pressure the police to get the COVID shot as well.

While many will succumb to the pressure, there will be resistors among them, who will, in turn, join the anti-vax movements we forecast will arise in many nations, states, and cities.

    And I would remind you to add healthcare workers to that list as I know Trends has covered medical objection before. I’ve been working exclusively with Covid patients all around the country since it first came over from Asia. Spent most of last year on the west coast, now I’m working the Covid grind in the east. There are a significant amount of Doctors, Nurses, Resp Therapists, etc. who have and will refuse the vaccine. We are seeing an uptick in this part of the country related to people getting sick off of these shots. The sick ones are mostly obese, diabetic, and hypertensive–the typical make and model. A common trade-of-shift report might sound something like: ‘Ok, this is Mr. So&so. diagnosis Covid Pneumonia. Got the first step shot May 1st, was short of breath 24 or 48 hours later, arrived to ER 0300 May 4th. O2 SAT was 64% on room air. XR with opacities c/w covid PNA. Started on high flow oxygen, SAT’s rebounded to 95%. Initiate Dexamethasone and Remdesivir IV, admit to step down for monitoring and try to wean O2 as tol…’ So, we have more patients now that were in their normal fat slob state of health until they got their vaccines and now they are lethally ill. They survived the initial covid onslaught but are struggling to survive inoculation. I’d say it’s about half of all Covid admissions I see in this area which makes me wonder if we’d even have much of a problem with sick Covids if there wasn’t somebody running around deliberately inoculating those most susceptible to Covid lethality? What many don’t hear about we see and are influenced by. We’re not stupid people. For this reason, many seasoned practitioners will call it a career when they are given the ultimatum. This will result in a brain drain. And while I don’t know to what extent or capacity of a loss it will be it’s not going to go unnoticed. My prediction is the loss will be absorbed by younger more inexperienced practitioners who, as a condition of wanting to get a medical education and their first job will have to vaccinate whether they want to or not.

    My prediction on moving the shots from areas of the country where they’re not wanted to areas where they are wanted: wherever the shots go there the sick will be and there the Covid workers will be.

    An observation on the power of propaganda (or the stupidity of our people): People seem unwilling to accept the reality that the vaccine got them hospitalized. I actually had a Covid who got lethally sick the day after getting the first shot and on assessment looked me in the face and told me, gaspingly, “I don’t know how I got it and I’ve been doing everything I’m suppose to all year. I must have gone and walked passed some fool who wasn’t wearing a mask…”

    Final advice to all the Covid hospitalized sick: if you see your caregiver come into your room and something about their PPE doesn’t look quite right to you (maybe a mask or a face shield doesn’t appear to be seated quite right) don’t use what little energy you have to give them a hard time about it–just concentrate on your breathing and do what they tell you you need to do to survive. Probably your doc or nurse is running their ass off trying to do whatever they can to keep as many of you above ground as possible and they don’t mean any offense–remember, your mask didn’t save you and it’s not likely to save them so give them a break.

    Thank you for sharing your personal views and experiences about the true boots on the ground observations in the medical field. We need more practitioners to step out and report the facts and findings in the hospitals.
