TORONTO — Ontario has become the latest province to signal it will likely mix COVID-19 vaccine brands as the country prepares for a flood of Pfizer and Moderna shots while some doctors questioned further use of Oxford-AstraZeneca.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said Monday it’s likely that Ontarians who have received a dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine may get a different shot for their second dose.


“We don’t have a supply date for more AstraZeneca, so it’s very likely that we will need to mix the different products together,” she said.

Elliott said the province is waiting for the results from a U.K. study on mixing different vaccines and on advice from a federal immunization panel.

“I expect that should come very soon, because there are some people who are coming up in terms of times for their second shot.”

Quebec has also said that it plans to mix vaccines due to supply shortages, substituting the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines for the Moderna vaccines in order to quickly give booster shots to long-term care residents.

Dr. Theresa Tam, the country’s top doctor, has also said that Canada is closely following the results of the U.K. study on mixing doses.

Molecular biologist and science communicator Samantha Yammine said some Canadians who have already received the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine may be comforted to know they have the option of a different dose, given recent attention directed at shot.

“It’s nice to know that people will have the option depending on what risks they’re comfortable to take on,” she said in a recent interview.

Yammine, who goes by “Science Sam” on social media, said the pandemic has given rise to an “infodemic,” with a flood of advice about areas like the low risk of blood clots from viral-vector shots compared with mRNA vaccines.

Conflicting advice coming from experts and officials, even if well-intentioned, can overwhelm the public, Yammine said. And Oxford-AstraZeneca’s vaccine has been in spotlight in Canada in recent weeks.

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization, or NACI, attracted criticism when it recommended that Canadians who aren’t at high risk from COVID-19 may want to wait until a dose of Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna is available, calling them the “preferred” vaccines.


Since then, the chair of the committee has said people who took the Oxford-AstraZeneca shot did the right thing, and some prominent physicians have suggested on social media that Canada could focus on distributing mRNA shots with millions of doses expected to arrive over the next few weeks.

Dr. Andrew Morris, an infectious diseases specialist and a a member Ontario’s COVID-19 science advisory table, argued on Twitter this weekend that while AstraZeneca “was a good vaccine that served its purpose,” Canada has enough Pfizer and Moderna shots to avoid using AstraZeneca, removing the risk of rare but serious blood clots.

Yammine said the biggest damage from NACI’s initial remarks was feelings of remorse among people who took the Oxford-AstraZeneca shot.

She stressed that people should not regret taking the vaccine and said it’s still advisable for people in virus hot spots to take the first vaccine they can get, but highlighted the importance of local guidance for those in lower-risk areas who are trying to make sense of the advice.

“What we really need now, in my opinion, is for the provinces to now do the risk calculation for the people in their province, because it’s all a gradient, it’s not black or white,” she said.

Yammine has also shared infographics on social media comparing normal side-effects and possible signs of the rare blood-clotting disorder in some COVID-19 recipients, so people who have received the shots can seek treatment if necessary.

“We don’t want people to be scared and freaking out, but we want you to know what to look out for, so that you’re prepared and you can get the treatment that you deserve,” she said.

Jessica Mudry, an associate professor in health communication at Ryerson University, said communication about the difference between vaccines has been poorly handled by officials and it may end up hurting Canada’s vaccination campaign.

She said new government plans to mix doses without preparing the public for that possibility ahead of time may backfire among people who took already one shot and are now caught off guard.

“I think that this kind of this concept of the cocktail, you do one, then you do a different one, is actually going to be quite difficult for people, because people don’t like surprises,” Mudry said.

Even with more mRNA vaccines on the way, Yammine noted that Canada should be careful before outright dismissing shots like Oxford-AstraZeneca’s because they are important to ending the global pandemic and Canada has a strong health-care reputation on the world stage.

“We act locally but we have to think globally,” she said. “By us just saying, no, these vaccines are not for Canadians, what message does that send to people in crisis around the world who don’t have the luxury of choosing a vaccine.”

Ontario’s top doctor says the province will stop giving out first doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.

Dr. David Williams says the decision has been made out of an abundance of caution because of increased instances of a rare blood clotting disorder linked to the shot.


The move comes hours after Alberta said it won’t give out more first doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine for the time being because there aren’t any confirmed shipments coming.

The AstraZeneca vaccine has been linked to a new blood clotting syndrome that is extremely rare but can be fatal.

In Canada, at least 12 cases have been confirmed out of more than two million doses given and three women have died.

Ontario says it has 49,280 doses of the shot remaining in the province out of over 707,000 received.

Bill Gates: World needs fewer people​

Software billionaire Bill Gates, who previously has advocated the reduction of the human population through the use of vaccines, and his wife Melinda marked the 100th year since the First International Eugenics Congress in London with a "family planning" summit with abortionists and the United Nations.

The July 11 event, co-hosted by the United Kingdom Department for International Development, included organizations such as Planned Parenthood, Marie Stopes International and the U.N. Populations Fund, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Ontario residents say they are feeling frustrated, anxious, bored and isolated as the province continues to deal with the third wave of COVID-19 and the ongoing stay-at-home order.

A poll from Maru Public Opinion shows the province is in a more pessimistic mood at the moment than earlier in the year.


While in February and early March just 52% of Ontario residents agreed with the statement that, “Where I live, things will get worse before they get better,” that statement now sees 68% of the population agreeing.

While that is down from 81% in March 2020 and just below the 70% recorded in January, it is a significant increase in negative feelings.

The poll also tested how people responded to 11 positive and 11 negative feelings — the results were 63% negative and 37% positive. Frustrated was selected by 39% of the public, anxious by 37%, and bored by 36% of the population.

The first positive feeling to appear was fortunate, chosen by 35% of the population but quickly followed by isolated — also selected by 35% of the public.

Ontarians have been in a negative mood for more than a year now, a mood that is decidedly more negative than in other parts of Canada and our neighbours to the south.

While only 37% of Ontario residents are expressing positive feelings, 43% of Canadians across the country are in a positive mood compared to 55% of Americans.


A full 53% of Ontarians say that COVID-19 has had a negative impact on their mental health, while 38% say that the pandemic has had a negative impact on their physical health. Just over one-third, 34%, say that the quality of their sleep has declined.

As for getting back to normal, a strong majority say it will be 2022 or later before they’ll fly on a plane, stop wearing a mask, attend a large dinner party, a sporting event, concert or play.

While 23% say they would be willing to eat on a restaurant patio now, that figure grows to 60% by summer. Meanwhile, just 14% say they would be willing to eat indoors at a restaurant immediately, a number that grows to just 40% by summer.

The poll of 600 Ontario residents was part of a larger national tracking survey conducted online using the Maru Voice Canada panel. For comparison purposes, the poll is considered accurate within 4%, 19 times out of 20.

The overwhelming majority of Ontario adults say they plan on getting the COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available to them but few are willing to give either the federal or provincial government high marks for their handling of the vaccine rollout.

These are the results of a poll carried out last week by polling firm Campaign Research.


Across all age groups, 70% said they will get the vaccine right away while 18% reported they would wait a little. Just 7% indicated they would not take the vaccine and 4% said they are unsure.

Men aged 18-34 were the least likely group to say they would get the vaccine right away with just 49% choosing that answer while 32% said they would wait a while and 9% said they would definitely not take the vaccine.

As for the vaccine rollout, the poll showed voters hold both the federal and provincial government’s efforts in low regard.

Just 8% gave the Trudeau government an “excellent” rating for the acquisition of vaccines while 35% rated their efforts as “good.” By comparison, 24% rated the government efforts as “bad” and 25% as “terrible.”

When asked “Who do you blame the most for the lack of vaccines being available to people?” the feds take the blame by a 2 to 1 ratio. While 26% blame the province and 2% blame their municipal government, 52% say the feds are mostly to blame and 21% were unsure.

Conducted May 2-8, the results of the poll of 2,009 eligible voters, who are members of MaruBlue’s online panel, are considered accurate within 2%, 19 times out of 20.

gee TEXAS AND FLORIDA ARE DOING JUST FINE!!!
:)
Fk, FACTS eh?

Texas and Florida are proof that Coronavirus lockdowns and mask mandates are all about forced obedience rather than public health​


Data from the few states that have fully relaxed all lockdown and mask restrictions poved that none of these restrictions were helpful in the slightest and should have been done away with a long time ago. Governor Baker should read this Breitbart article. If he did he we would see that there is no harm in lifting restrictions immediately. The people would benefit so greatly economically and mentally because their full freedom would be restored.

According to the CDC’s April 23 data, Michigan reported 449.2 cases of the virus per 100,000, or 44,862 total, in the last seven days. Gov. Tom Wolf’s (D) Pennsylvania has reported 239.6 cases per 100,000 in the last seven days, or 30,678 total.
CDC data separates New York City from the rest of the state in its reporting of new virus case data. Even so, New York City alone has reported 208.1 new cases per 100,000 in the last seven days, or 17,475 cases total. The remainder of the state has reported 191.9 cases per 100,000, or 21,213 cases in the last seven days. Together, the state has reported 38,688 new cases in the last seven days.
All three blue states, which have mask mandates in place, are reporting a higher number of new cases per capita than both Texas and Florida, which remain open and have no mask mandates in place.

No, the problem here is not a virus...it's stoopid parasites.
:)
funny thing that herd immunity ain't it?



and, also oddly enough, Florida IS a retirement state.

Northern Ontario,
The catch is that we have been lied to so many times by government officials that nothing else is unbelievable either.
It seems like everyone, including the conspiracy theorists have ulterior motives for stirring the conspiracy pot!
So everything you read on the internet has to be taken with a truck load of salt, and anything you believe might eventually end up as "BULLSHYTE
