COVID “VACCINE” LESS THAN 1% EFFECTIVE?!
When it comes to Covid vaccines, what does “95% effective” really mean? Dr. Jim Meehan breaks down Relative Risk vs. Absolute Risk, and how Big Pharma manipulates the data on the absolute effectiveness of these failed vaccines, which leads the media and public into a false sense of security.

ABSOLUTE VERSUS RELATIVE RISK REDUCTION
CORRECTION: THE FOLLOWING GRAPHIC REPLACES THE GRAPHIC IN THE VIDEO AT 5:44. Image: https://www.mdpi.com/medicina/medicin… Dr. Ron Brown of Waterloo University talks about his Cambridge and Medicina Paper. We discuss relative risk reduction and absolute risk reduction measures in the evaluation of clinical trial data. Dr. Ron Brown discusses the danger of outcome reporting bias and the misleading conclusions and violations of informed consent from outcome reporting bias in COVID-19 mRNA vaccine clinical trials.
Based on data reported by the manufacturer for Pfzier/BioNTech vaccine BNT162b2:
- relative risk reduction: 95.1%; 95% CI, 90.0% to 97.6%; p = 0.016;
- absolute risk reduction: 0.7%; 95% CI, 0.59% to 0.83%; p < 0.000.
For the Moderna vaccine mRNA-1273:
- relative risk reduction: 94.1%; 95% CI, 89.1% to 96.8%; p = 0.004
- absolute risk reduction, 1.1%; 95% CI, 0.97% to 1.32%; p < 0.000
Unreported absolute risk reduction measures of 0.7% and 1.1% for the Pfzier/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, respectively, are very much lower than the reported relative risk reduction measures. Reporting absolute risk reduction measures is essential to prevent outcome reporting bias in evaluation of COVID-19 vaccine efficacy. View Full-Text
Peter Doshi, associate editor of The BMJ, pointed out that while Pfizer claims its vaccine is 95% effective, this is the relative risk reduction.
