WITH the opposition National Party favourite to win next month’s election, leader Christopher Luxon and health spokesman Dr Shane Reti have promised financial incentives to doctors if they administer Covid vaccination to 95 per cent of those registered in their practice. As well as standard payments, which were $75 (£36) per jab during the pandemic, under National’s plan doctors will be paid an additional $10-per-person bonus so long as they can persuade 95 per cent of eligible patients to receive jabs by June next year. This compares with the UK’s payment to GPs of £10.06 per jab, reduced this month to £7.54.
The average New Zealand GP has around 1,350 patients, which could bring in an additional $10,000.
For those hoping that the pandemic gravy train and the medicalisation of politics would stop under a National government, think again. We remember that Labour’s road to perdition began with Jacinda Ardern’s promise to vaccinate 90 per cent of the population. Luxon intends to finish the job and up the ante to 95 per cent. Despite his best efforts to sound reasonable, he has given us another glimpse into his long-held prejudice against those who want to manage their own health choices.
Bonus payments to doctors achieving vaccination targets is just a step away from the coercive mandates under Ardern. The proposed payments will only add to current incentives to prioritise vaccination, come what may. They will further push informed consent on to the back burner at a time when studies are revealing mRNA vaccines are associated with adverse health outcomes.
Politicians are no longer able to deny that we are in the midst of a health crisis like no other. The misleading remedies they are offering involve blaming everything bad on Covid and everything good on new vaccines, whatever the research says.
An article published by RNZ suggests ‘Covid may have permanently damaged people’s immunity’, saying: ‘Covid infections are putting people at higher risk of diabetes, strokes, heart disease and other long-term illnesses – but experts warn it may be decades before the full impact is known.’
The article encourages us to mask up, utilise CO2 monitors and install ventilation systems ASAP. It quotes a doctor, Gary Payinda, who ‘suspects’,based on very high rates of admissions and serious complications from normally mild conditions, that Covid may have damaged people’s immunity. He refers to the ‘latest research’ which he claims without attribution ‘showed vaccination halved the risk of cardiac problems post-infection’.
I hope you noticed the incongruity. New Zealand has a vaccination rate of around 90 per cent, which according to Payinda should reduce cardiac problems, but we have a 83 per cent higher rate of cardiac events, according to leaked hospitalisation data, since we began Covid vaccination programmes. It doesn’t fit together, does it?
Our massive increases in hospitalisations here in NZ for cardiac events, strokes, kidney damage, miscarriage, etc began in 2021 after the vaccine rollout, but before Covid arrived on our shores in anything but very isolated outbreaks. The evidence for vaccine harm is irrefutable (watch here).
Dr Payinda probably hasn’t read my last few articles which report carefully designed published studies showing that
- mRNA vaccination increases susceptibility to viral and bacterial infection among the young.
- Vaccine-induced myocardial injury is 1,000 times more common than the rate admitted by the government and their medical authorities.
- The spike protein persists for up to six months post vaccination.
- Immunity from natural infection is 13 times more effective than mRNA vaccination at preventing Covid infection and seven times more effective at preventing hospitalisation.
- Cancers are rising dramatically in tandem with Covid vaccinations.
There has been a deafening silence from Luxon and the whole current crop of politicians on the studies of vaccine safety that we have been analysing and reporting every week. Both Labour and National are calling for more doctors to solve the health crisis, but inexplicably failing to discuss a significant cause of our health crisis – their coercive policies to promote novel mRNA vaccines.
In a recent trial, one out of 50 recipients of the new Moderna Covid XBB.1.5 mRNA vaccine suffered a medically attended adverse event. The question is: do you think these are good odds? If 2 per cent of people crossing a road were hit by cars would you take that route? Those are our current odds, but you wouldn’t know it if you listened to our politicians. We are not talking about weighing up marginal relative risks here: there are significant large unprecedented short- and long-term risks to health.
Yet vaccine safety is off the table when it comes to hustings and press conferences. The announcement of financial incentives shows vaccination safety is not just a no-go area. Apparently if there is some political leverage to be gained by talking up vaccines to a misinformed public schooled for the last three years to fear Covid infection, it’s still OK to keep them in the dark about vaccine adverse events.
Paying scientists, experts and doctors to change their minds or keep quiet seems to be the flavour of the month. According to a letter sent by the Chairman of the US House Select Committee on the coronavirus pandemic to CIA Director William Burns on September 12, a senior-level CIA officer has testified that his agency tried to pay off six analysts if they changed their support for a lab-leak origin and said the virus jumped from animals to humans.
A USA Today investigation into bio-laboratory safety uncovered hundreds of mistakes. It found: ‘Vials of bioterror bacteria have gone missing. Lab mice infected with deadly viruses have escaped, and wild rodents have been found making nests with research waste. Cattle infected in a university’s vaccine experiments were repeatedly sent to slaughter and their meat sold for human consumption.’
No general pandemic investigation such as that currently progressing through the US House Committee with wide terms of reference is being proposed in New Zealand. The National Party is riding high in the polls on 39 per cent. The only party currently scoring more than 1 per cent which is questioning the safety of novel biotech vaccines and asking for an investigation is NZ First on 5 per cent.
With its latest incentives to vaccinate, National is doubling down on the very policies which have caused the most damage to our health over the last three years. Instead, vote for a party prepared to examine the evidence and face up to past mistakes. If we are not healthy, we will not be happy, wealthy or wise whatever other policy initiatives are introduced.
For the last two years behind the scenes I have urged those planning to set up parties and run for election on platforms designed to address the pandemic, to band together under common agreed policies. This hasn’t happened. There are several new parties who have failed to register in the polls despite their best efforts. There are very good reasons to vote tactically, otherwise our voice may not be heard. It is becoming very clear now that without elected representation we may be condemned to three more years of medical dictatorship and burgeoning ill-health.
