It doesn’t seem to matter that even the Centers for Disease Control has stated the new Covid vaccine isn’t effective except for 3% of the current strain, even at the time when the vaccine hit the streets.
There are newer Covid strains around today; so how good is this vaccine at stopping anything?
But never fear. The Alaska Department of Health wants you to know they have the vaccine and if you can’t afford it, they have grants to get this into your arm.
This mRNA technology has not yet been proven safe and has had very limited studies before approving it for human use. Some of the Covid boosters were only tested on nine mice.
There have been no Covid deaths in Alaska since April 15, 2023, per the State of Alaska web page:
Yet the Boys and Girls Club of Alaska has these vaccine clinics available for the most vulnerable among us—our children.
So how vulnerable to Covid are our children? One would think Covid deaths among children must be rampant to cause the government to push these vaccinations.
Here is a chart from the State of Alaska web page showing the number of deaths from Covid vs. age demographics:
Note that the very small death rate for the ages less than 20 years is less than one percent—barely visible on the left chart. And 27% of the Alaska population is less than 20 years old.
There have been minimal deaths from Covid since March, 2022.
Additionally, there have been no deaths in children under the age of 18 for the entire Northwest Region 10, which includes Alaska for the entire year 2023.
This hardly seems like a vaccine we should be pushing on Alaska’s children.
Perhaps we should instead be educating Alaskans about the importance of taking vitamin D, especially as we watch winter set in, and the hours of sunlight continue to shrink.
Rather than push an ineffective vaccine, which can have many bad side-effects, why doesn’t the State push vitamin D?
Vitamin D is critical to a robust immune system. Studies show high levels of this vitamin in the body were found to prevent fatalities caused by the Covid-19 infection.
A study based on data from Israel’s first two waves of Covid showed people with a vitamin D deficiency were “14 times more likely to have a severe or critical case of Covid-19. Additionally, the mortality rate for those with insufficient vitamin D levels was 25.6%, compared with 2.3% among those with adequate levels.”
In 2013, former State Rep. Paul Seaton recommended a program to get more vitamin D to all Alaskans. People were appalled that this was even a topic of legislation.
Perhaps vitamin D should have been strongly recommended by the Alaska Department of Health and may have saved Alaskan lives. You can find vitamin D on their web page, but only if you scroll down many pages to find it.
Buried among the recommendations, it notes that the Alaska Vitamin D Work Group “recommends supplementing vitamin D above the national recommendations for Alaska infants and pregnant women.”
The State also acknowledges that “for people with low vitamin D levels, getting more vitamin D can help improve health outcomes.”
One would have thought the Alaska Department of Health would have seen this as a higher priority for the State as we head into further winter darkness.
Maybe the State should be buying vitamin D supplements for its population instead of pushing a vax that doesn’t work. It could even make the vitamin free.
More could be gained by that strategy, to include assisting with other infectious diseases and building one’s immunity.
The goal of Public Health, after all ,is to keep its citizens safe and protected. Yet that approach doesn’t fit the current narrative pushed by the Centers for Disease Control. A lot of money was spent to manufacture and buy these vaccines.
The State has a priority it seems: to deplete its vaccine stockpile. Thankfully, only 2% of the American population is even interested in getting it.
So, which is it? Vitamin D supplements or endless Covid vaccines? It’s your body, and your choice.
