Harvard Medical School’s Martin Kulldorff announces today on Twitter:
Our COVID vaccine op-ed was just published by @thehill. Twitter does not allow vaccine scientists to freely discuss vaccines, but you can find it on my LinkedIn and Gab accounts.
James Freeman at the WSJ reports that Harvard prof and Stanford University’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya have written in a co-op: the “idea that everyone must be vaccinated against COVID-19 is as misguided as the anti-vax idea that no one should.”
… the two professors warn against mandating a Covid vaccine for children who face little risk from the virus, because even a relatively safe vaccine carries some small risk of an adverse event, and in this case it may be greater than the small risk young people face from Covid.
The academics also take aim at the idea of mandating vaccines for those who have already had the virus.
As the Harvard and Stanford profs note: “recovered COVID patients have strong long-lasting protection against severe disease if reinfected, and evidence about protective immunity after natural infection is at least as good as from the vaccines. Hence, it makes no sense to require vaccines for recovered patients. For them, it simply adds a risk, however small, without any benefit.”
