International Study Shows Pfizer & Moderna Vaccines ‘Associated with Increased Risk of Serious Adverse Events’; U.S. Appeals Court Vacates Federal Vaccine Mandate Pending Additional Hearing, and other C-Virus related stories

International Study Shows Pfizer & Moderna Vaccines ‘Associated with Increased Risk of Serious Adverse Events’:
International researchers have found that major Covid-19 vaccines pose an increased risk of “serious adverse events” that surpasses the “risk reduction for Covid-19 hospitalization.”
The scientific researchers are from Stanford University, UCLA, Louisiana State University, the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, Navarre Health Service in Spain, and Bond University in Australia. The pre-print academic paper was published in June.
“We sought to investigate the association between FDA-authorized mRNA COVID-19 vaccines and serious adverse events identified by the Brighton Collaboration, using data from the phase III randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials on which authorization was based,” the researchers state. “We then use the results to illustrate the need for formal harm-benefit analyses of the vaccines that are stratified according to risk of serious COVID-19 outcomes, as well as contextualize the findings against post-authorization observational data.”
The scientific findings suggest that the risk-benefit analysis is trending against mass inoculation for Covid-19 due to the ‘increased risk of serious adverse events’ in examined populations.
“Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were associated with an increased risk of serious adverse events of special interest, with an absolute risk increase of 10.1 and 15.1 per 10,000 vaccinated over placebo baselines of 17.6 and 42.2 (95% CI -0.4 to 20.6 and -3.6 to 33.8), respectively,” the researchers found. “Combined, the mRNA vaccines were associated with an absolute risk increase of serious adverse events of special interest of 12.5 per 10,000 (95% CI 2.1 to 22.9).” --->READ MORE HERE

U.S. appeals court vacates federal vaccine mandate pending additional hearing:
A U.S. appeals court panel said on Monday it would convene a full panel to reconsider President Joe Biden's executive order requiring civilian federal employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19, and set aside the order pending that hearing.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, which is based in New Orleans, had reinstated the vaccine order in April by a 2-1 vote after it was blocked by a district court judge in January. read more
The court said on Monday that it would reconsider the case en banc, which means it will be heard by a larger panel of judges. No date was given for the hearing. Pending that hearing, the court said it would vacate the April ruling, which means that Biden's order cannot be enforced.
Biden said in September he would require about 3.5 million government workers to get vaccinated by Nov. 22, barring a religious or medical accommodation, or face discipline or firing. read more Despite the legal fight, more than 90% of federal workers were vaccinated by December, the White House said last year. --->READ MORE HERE
