Subject: A personal plea to end children's vaccine mandates in Boston Date: February 11, 2022 Dear Mayor Wu, Seeing the articles in the Globe about the protests in front of your home and reading about how they are affecting your family and your neighborhood community, we can only imagine how intense this period has been for you personally. It feels uncomfortable to us to see people expressing their anger and frustration at you in front of your home, while you and your family are there, and yet, we believe that they are moved to express their anger so personally because the vaccine mandates being imposed will negatively impact their own families in the most personal and intimate ways possible.
That's a wonderful letter. Unfortunately, the people you're dealing with cannot be reached through objective, rational argumentation.
"Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear."
Also Zac -- do we actually have studies that vaccinations of _children_ fail to prevent covid spread to adults? Or are you jumping from the claim (which actually imo isn't really confirmed yet, given all the confounds) that since vaccines given to adults are not stopping covid-spread in adults, vaccination of children also will not affect spread among adults? Remember the natural experiment involving mandatory flu vaccination of children in Japan, where the vaccination resulted in a reduction of "37,000 to 49,000 deaths per year, or about 1 death for every 420 children vaccinated," almost all of elderly adults? https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11259722/
Zac is pretty careless imo. Just look, for instance, at all the confounds suggested regarding the non-peer-reviewed Danish study. For instance Bat9991 on the Danish study, at its preprint site:"This is a faulty study, and will be either corrected or retracted once peer reviewed!
You cannot exclude "Previously SARS-CoV-2 PCR-positive individuals" and correlate VE against the same cohort you just removed a significant percentage of them!
You are skewing your test data significantly towards the unvaccinated cohort (which has much higher rate of PCR positive than the vaccinated cohort)'
