Significant numbers of German nursing staff refusing Covid-19 vaccine
For a large number of old people in nursing homes, a Corona vaccination is likely to be given a little earlier than expected. That is because about half of the nursing staff in Germany have decided to forego the "privilege" of being vaccinated against Corona first.

German weekly Spiegel cited information from the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians. According to the report, fear of the vaccine is prevalent in the industry: no one wants to be a “guinea pig”.
This is despite the fact that German Health Minister Jens Spahn had tried hard very hard to sell the vaccine. At a press conference in Berlin, the health minister said, according to ÄrzteZeitung: “It’s a matter of common sense. People who work in the healthcare sector have a special responsibility. It’s about protecting the people you care for.”
His warning has obviously been of little use. While nursing staff can be accused of some things, it is certainly not because they lack information on the subject of vaccination or practical experience in dealing with diseases.
The ÄrzteZeitung, on the other hand, assesses the vaccination risks more optimistically than many nurses and quoted Klaus Cichutek from the Paul Ehrlich Institute:
The President of the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI), Professor Klaus Cichutek, again assured all that the vaccine had been tested by BioNTech/Pfizer according to all the usual rules, was very effective and well tolerated. According to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the usual side effects of the vaccination such as pressure pain at the injection site, headache, malaise or pain in the limbs are moderate, at best slightly stronger than with the influenza vaccination. According to Cichutek, it is not yet possible to say whether the post-vaccination immunization will last longer than a year.
On January 2, a video was published on the Epoch Times YouTube channel questioning the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine. Zacharias Fögen, German doctor and statistician from Kassel, studied the 376-page protocol submitted for the investigation of the “safety and effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccine” that Pfizer and BioNtech had given to the American Medicines Agency (FDA) for approval of the Corona vaccine.
The documents showed that unvaccinated people were more likely to contract Covid-19, but less than 2,5 percent of them “severely”. In contrast, the proportion of developing a serious disease among those vaccinated is 12,5 percent. This means that if one is vaccinated, the chances of not getting “Corona” are much better, but if it happens anyway, you have a five times higher risk of a severe illness.
A “supplementary appendix” published separately for the protocol also revealed that the vaccination showed life-threatening side effects in 44 of around 44 000 test subjects that required urgent medical intervention. The protocol also stated that up to 84 percent of the test subjects showed adverse reactions to the vaccination. This is especially the case in younger people and those taking the second dose of vaccine. Often severe impairments in everyday life were reported.
In relation to the total number of 18 000 study participants, the vaccination protected 154 people, i.e. less than one percent of those vaccinated. If one also takes into account the vaccination reactions to be expected, the overburdened health system will not benefit from the vaccinations.
According to Fögen, there is some evidence that the effectiveness of the vaccination decreases after two months, as does the immunity after an infection during the same period. If all of this is true, the physical integrity of many perfectly healthy people will be jeopardized by the vaccination without any benefit and a lot of money wasted.

Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold
Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.
