Risk-Benefit Analysis of COVID-19 Vaccines

Risk-benefit analysis of COVID-19 vaccines is a controversial topic due to its extremely complex nature.

Principled Objections to COVID-19 Vaccines

Precautionary Principle

Many effects of the COVID-19 vaccines are still unknown and hotly debated, including some systemic risks such as mass fertility decline, risks of enhanced disease, and training the evolution of SARS-CoV-2 into more harmful forms (immunity escape). The precautionary principle is usually cited as a reason not to engage in large experiments until smaller experiments reveal more about full picture of risk-benefit.

The more complex the topic, the greater the burden of educating people about the potential risks associated with a decision. Many argue that informed consent is not taking place. In fact, genetic vaccine technology inventor Dr. Robert Malone received vaccine injections prior to changing his mind about them due to additional emerging information. If one of the most informed people on the planet felt underinformed in retrospect, what chance is there for the average person to understand the potential consequences of vaccination

COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy

Vaccine efficacy is an unspecific term needing qualification. Every vaccine has numerous forms of efficacy including,

  • efficacy in preventing infection
  • efficacy in preventing symptoms
  • efficacy in preventing severe disease
  • efficacy in preventing hospitalization
  • efficacy in preventing mortality

For all of these measured endpoints, there seems to be little if any COVID-19 vaccine efficacy. COVID-19 cases in vaccinated people are known as breakthrough cases.

Global COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy

As of October 20, 2021, the Our World in Data dataset shows around 85% of nations increasing COVID-19 cases and deaths, each, since starting starting their vaccination campaigns. https://roundingtheearth.substack.com/p/systemic-covid-19-vaccine-efficacy

As of October 20, 2021, the Our World in Data dataset shows that global correlations of COVID-19 vaccination rates are positively correlated with both COVID-19 case and death rates. https://roundingtheearth.substack.com/p/systemic-covid-19-vaccine-efficacy-fe3

Adverse Events

Manufacturing Risks

As of December 24, 2021, ingredients of most COVID-19 vaccines used around the world, including the mRNA vaccines used in the U.S. have not been fully disclosed. There are also reports of manufacturing concerns that seem as of now not explained, or explained imperfectly.

Systemic Risks

There are a great deal of unknowns associated with the COVID-19 vaccines. Their high levels of usage in the general populations of many nations create a series of additional systemic risks not usually discussed regarding vaccines. These include, but are not limited to,
