Philippines DOH has Approved Second Boosters for the General Population. Shelf-Life Extended to 18 Months (Original Was 6 Months). Community Responsibility / Wall of Immunity, STILL Being Pushed.
Vaccines shelf life is extended as DOH aided by media encourage uptake of in stock covid-19 vaccines.
Despite very few serious outcomes in 2023, the Philippines media continues to raise concerns over Covid-19 infections. Cases are up in Davao. Hospitals are reminded to hospitals to reserve ward and ICU capacity for C-19 cases. The reservation of such capacity can mean that hospitals, frequently challenged by demand, will not have enough beds to handle routine care requirements.
The media needs to keep up pressure to try to drum up new demand and enthusiasm for the jabs, particularly now that the DOH has approved delivery of second boosters of Covid-19 Vaccines for the general population.
The product EUA is reported to have been modified to allow 2nd dosing of the general population (no copy yet available on the FDA site). There are millions of doses still available.
People simply need to be convinced to take the vaccines via education and appealing to their sense of community to protect the vulnerable (wall of immunity?).Salvana lamented that people are no longer scared as they were at the start when vaccine uptake was rapid!
Of course there is no truth to the repeated claims that the Philippines is using expired vaccines; the vaccine shelf life has been extended and thus the jabs are no longer expired.
The shelf life of Comirnaty Covid-19 vaccines was further extended from 15 to 18 months on 27 Feb 2023. Last June 2022 the same vaccines had a 12 month shelf life (3rd EUA amendment). While the original EUA is no longer available on the FDA website, a December 2021 PNA article refers to the original 6-month shelf-life being extended to 9 months!
This is the first time ever I have heard of a medical product being given repeated extensions, with the original shelf life extended 3 times, in gradual 3 to 6-month increments!
The Philippines Magical Wall of Covid-19 Vaccine Immunity
DOH claim and promote the Covid-19 vaccines as needed to maintain the wall of immunity to protect vulnerable persons in the community! However, it is already widely acknowledged that these products don’t prevent infection or transmission: they provide no better protection against infection that a chain-link fence does to stopping the wind! Protection against severe infection is also suspect!
The public are urged to update their protection as immunity wanes over time. The public are not told that the duration of effectivity of the possibly slight protection afforded by the jabs is merely weeks!
Lancet paper presenting findings that the original C-19 vaccines are ineffective against Omicron. How is it relevant to push a vaccine targeting a long-gone 2019 virus variant?
We might remind those who take these jabs that some people do experience severe adverse reactions, which are real, not rare.
Adverse reactions should be reported to the Philippines FDA Covid-19 Vaccine Injury portal.
While the DOH recognizes few possible side effects (as listed below), all unusual or new health conditions, even if these occur months or more than a year after vaccine receipt should be reported; cancers, immune conditions, heart disease, infertility, neurological conditions can take a long time to become apparent after having been triggered by an external cause.
