Where is herd immunity?

Moderna boosters, recommended by FDA independent advisory panel

65 and older and for adults who are at high risk of severe illness

Six months

Half dose

Jacqueline Miller, head of Moderna’s infectious-disease therapeutic area

Six to eight months after vaccination, antibody levels dropped in vaccine recipients.

A half-dose booster at least six months after initial vaccination restored antibodies levels

People from original trial, a clear uptick in breakthrough infections this July and August


Week ending 9 October 2021

Mortality displacement did not offset excess deaths by mid-2021

Some evidence of mortality displacement during the pandemic

Mortality displacement, when vulnerable people die sooner than expected

Potentially leading to a lower-than-average period of mortality

These periods of below average mortality did not offset the high number of deaths since the beginning of the pandemic

3 January 2020 to 2 July 2021

97,981 excess deaths in England and Wales

(compared to what we would expect in a non-pandemic period).

Within 28 days of a positive test, 138,379

Certificated, 161,798

Zoe data

Long covid

Long covid as of 5 September 2021

An estimated 1.1 million in the UK experiencing long COVID

1.7% of the total population were experiencing self-reported long COVID

Up from 970,000 (1.5%) at 1 August 2021

831,000 (77%) first had (or suspected they had) COVID-19 at least 12 weeks previously

405,000 (37%) first had (or suspected they had) COVID-19 at least one year previously

Symptoms adversely affected the day-to-day activities of around two-thirds (65%) of those with self-reported long COVID

Fatigue (56%)

Shortness of breath (40%)

Loss of smell (32%)

Difficulty concentrating (31%)

Professor Tim Spector

The UK seems to be slowly waking up to the fact that COVID cases are too high,

but the reality is they’ve been soaring for months and many countries have put us on their red list.

Infections remain high in young people, and look to be spilling over into the 35-55 year olds.

If these increases creep into the over 55s it could spell disaster for the NHS this winter.

Herd immunity

Minimum 85%

With cases so high, it’s clear that herd immunity isn’t happening

Current symptoms in vaccinated and children

Runny nose, 76%

Headache, 75%

Sneezing, 66%

Sore throat, 53%

Cough 53%

Loss of smell or taste

Hello Everyone,My name is John Campbell and I am a retired Nurse Teacher and A and E nurse based in England. I also do some teaching in Asia and Africa when time permits. These videos are to help students to learn the background to all forms of health care. My PhD focused on the development of open learning resources for nurses nationally and internationally.

  1. The video: "vaccines give remarkably strong protection against hospitalization and death." The comment section: "just like John said, vaccines do nothing and are the devil." Wtf is going on in this community?

  2. I feel it's quite interesting that all of these countries are reporting high numbers of excess death when the overall death rates have fallen in line as expected with aging populations (as is the trend in Western countries currently). The death rate in Canada – where I live – for 2020 compared to 2019 and previous years was exactly on trend for what one would expect for our aging population.

    What do you suppose this means? I'm personally of the opinion that this is just displaced mortality. These people who died during the early waves were ~90% nursing home patients with numerous comorbidities. It's hardly fair to attribute their deaths to COVID when they had (statistically) only perhaps a few months remaining to live regardless.

    I feel like the realities of this pandemic and its threat to society at large are being misrepresented in order to allow these corporations to extract incredible profits from us, and our governments to seize additional powers for themselves.

  3. It all depends what your government is lying about today, as this whole situation is now a poitical club, why should anyone be surprised to get hit with said club, no figures put out can be trusted unfortunately.

  4. Herd immunity is already here. Are the people at all the sporting events shouting "Let's go Brandon" at the top of their lungs sick? Nope and it's been going on for weeks now. The herd is immune.

  5. I've no doubt stats are being manipulated to keep their fanatical vaccine narrative going.
    This is about profit and control and not about health.
    Natural immunity and every other medication is cencored and suppressed in their drive to get a needle into every shoulder.

  6. good question. What governments are doing is keeping the virus lukewarm and making sure that there are enough cases, every so often, so that the virus survives until 2024 (that is the expected end of the "pandemic", and also of the "feasting on taxpayers money" by the pharmaceutical industry). This objective is reached by imposing useless lockdown measures and alternating them with "go and party wildly, brothers". Let's look at what happened with all other pandemics or epidemics of the last 50 years, avian flu, SARS, even the common flu: a spike and bubble followed by disappearance. we were out of them in 6 months. This is not even herd immunity, it is a matter of mathematics and probabilities. Only 40% or less of the population should contract the virus, whatever the virus is. The current policies are aimed at 100% contagion. The motto is: sooner or later, you will all catch it. Lastly, it is proven that Covid 19 has one of the lowest transmissibility for this type of virus (between 20 and 40 percent)

  7. It would also be nice to know how many of those deaths were suicides as a result of loneliness, increased deaths due to substance abuse, also undiagnosed diseases. As you said, we don't really know how long these people would have lived.

  8. Dr John, it’s seems pretty clear that immunity wanes after as little as a few months with all these vaccines. Case numbers and hospitalisations make this abundantly obvious. This being the case how many boosters do you predict will be needed going forward?.

    Of course the revelations around vaccinated people spreading the virus just as easily as the unvaccinated makes mandatory vaccination very morally questionable (a discussion for another day perhaps?).

    I agree, a study looking at QLYs lost is needed.

  9. I have advocated for someone to calculate lost years of life – I wrote Michael Levitt about it.
    It would also be very informative to see how "excess deaths" are calculated. Is it against the average of the previous 5 yrs… previous 10? What is a standard deviation in any of those 10 years? Are we deviating much more than usual? Is it calculated from a median or an average? How does it compare as a percentage of population vs an absolute number.

  10. 12:50 – There have been several studies that show that children are extremely poor transmitters of the disease to adults. Is this no longer accepted science? Has just the understanding changed, or have the newer variants changed the actual facts on the ground?

  11. Not even an attempt to explain the lack of herd immunity then, LOL. Could it be my good doctor that the vaccines you champion are mostly useless and the reason for lower cases in other countries is because they are not so obsessed with vaccination, including children, so they develop natural immunity which you yourself kind of think is probably better.

  12. Do you know what CO2 is and what it does? THERE IS NOT ENOUGH CO2!!!

    A lack of carbon (CO2);

    Climate data from many countries ‘completely flawed’

    Border patrol; Biden admin 'opened the floodgates' at border;

    Do you understand what is going on TODAY? Who did Jesus tell us rules this world? John 14:30 I will not speak with you much more, for the ruler of the world is coming … Who is this ruler? Luke 4:6 Then the Devil said to him: “I will give you all this authority and their glory, because it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. —- In addition, in Daniel 10:13 But the prince of the royal realm of Persia stood in opposition to me for 21 days … & Dan 10:20.. Now I will go back to fight with the prince of Persia. When I leave, the prince of Greece will come / The ‘princes’ in these two verses are demons (Please read Ephesians 6:12 in your own Bible.) We are told in Revelations that in the last days the Angelic restraint on the demons will be lessened and that ALL evil will be revealed (1 Cor 4:5). This is why Jesus told us to get of the ‘world’ (Satan’s ruling system) and also to get out of the religions that support and cooperate with that ‘system’. I do offer and conduct online Bibles studies which are free. If you have questions, please ask, or email me; —- All about depopulation today.

  13. The herd has their experimental injection immunity
    too bad it does nothing against the covid( as the data shows)
    but no worries because now there are lockdowns for the unvaccinated 🙂
    that is going to do the trick they say and if that is not enough
    3 or 4 injections with the same experimental product is going to be mandatory
    to get an 6 month valid QR code
    but still no one who asked why only 6 months valid or why they have already
    bought 6 shots per person

  14. You cant compare US hospitalizations to other Countries for a myriad of reasons.. This is where data interpretation error sends us off in the wrong direction. All of the European states have national healthcare. In the US, many people dont have healthcare or a family doctor. So when there hear, "you tested positive for Covid!!!!!" they dont run to the clinic, they dont wait it out, they run to the hospital. And that is just one of potentially thousands of reasons doing these predictive charts are worthless and misleading. Actually leading to dreadful decisions by people relying on them to direct policy. Sorry Doc, I like your videos, I just dont trust the data or the way it has been used and manipulated in reference to Covid.

  15. They claimed that we'd reach herd immunity if 60-80%of Americans get vaccinated, there's 330 million Americans and 426 million vaccines have been administered , why are they saying now that herd immunity is impossible?
