Is the Government “telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” about the Covid-19 vaccination program?

This is my understanding of the Covid-19 ‘vaccination’ and its effects.

It is based on a wide ranging study of the evidence from research undertaken overseas, as well as people in New Zealand who are taking a critical thinking approach to what is happened around the pandemic.


  • The Covid-19 inoculations are not a vaccine
  • A vaccine stimulates the immune system to recognise and destroy a disease organism.
  • A vaccine thus gives you immunity – the elimination of the disease organism before it can affect you, preventing you from being infected and infectious.
  • The Covid-19 mRNA inoculations give protection against the effects of the virus, reducing symptoms and the severity of reactions to the presence of the virus.
  • It does not stop you been infected and infectious, and thus spreading the virus.
  • It is an experimental approach that has not been used on a whole of population basis before, and does not prevent the spread of the virus through a population.
  • The inoculation is essentially a treatment method, as a pre-treatment before getting the disease.
  • Covid-19 is a coronavirus, like the common colds, and because there is a relative balance between these viruses and us, our immune system does not fully eliminate these viruses, rather suppresses their effects.
  • A vaccine to eliminate this unusually severe cold virus, through immune system response, is thus a difficult task.
  • The mRNA approach is untested in terms of its effects on the immune system, especially the developing system of young people and the compromised immune system of pregnant women.  Its side-effects are only being discovered through its whole population use.
  • Its effectiveness also reduces over time, having only a short term protection effect.  After about six-months people are back to their original unprotected state.


  • There are other treatments that are effective in reducing the impacts of the virus, especially for immune-compromised people.
  • These treatments could keep even very vulnerable people out of hospital.
  • A disease becomes severe because of the interaction between a pathogenic organism and our immunity and resilience systems.
  • Our health and well-being are important in whether we are affected by a particular dose of pathogens. There are many preventive measures we can take to keep healthy and have a robust immune system.
  • There have been no campaigns to encourage healthy nutrition and practices that support our immune systems.
  • People who have had Covid-19 will have had an immune system response, and thus will have some protection against the effects of the virus, if re-infected.
  • However, as with common colds, the ability to change genetically very rapidly means that new varieties can again give rise to significant symptoms.
  • Ivermectin is used to purge intestinal worms in animals. It is a registered medicine for people in New Zealand to treat skin conditions, and has been safely used for decades.
  • It has been used in India by paramedics, as part of home kits given to people who could not go to, or afford, hospital treatment, to treat Covid-19 and restrict its spread, and proved very effective.  Its effectiveness has also been demonstrated in other countries.
  • It is a cheap and readily available medicine.
  • There are other cheap treatments that have also been sidelined and dismissed by the health authorities.


  • Respiratory diseases are very hard to contain, being spread on water droplets in the air.
  • This virus, especially the delta variety, is very contagious — easily spread.
  • Sanitation is maintaining a healthy balance of microbes, on our skin, in our throat and in our guts. Washing your hands with soap in warm water and then drying them is good sanitation. The protective microbes natural to our skin are retained, while washing away (anaerobic) foreign microbes.
  • Sterilisation kills off all the microbes, and leaves a ‘bare’ surface for disease organisms to colonise. Sterilised hands, then, are easily infected and easily transmit infections to the nose and mouth.
  • Masks that contain sneezing and coughing in confined spaces will mitigate the spread of the airborne droplets that could contain respiratory diseases.
  • Masks that confine normal breathing of people with no cold-like symptoms will have minimal effect on the airborne spread of their out breath.
  • The Covid-19 inoculation is being put forward, by the government, and the media as their promotional agents, as a vaccine that will allow us all to ‘get back to normal’. Do people who are fully ‘vaccinated’ know that they can still be infected, carry the infection and infect other people?
  • It is the ‘vaccinated’ that is the difficult risk to manage, because they will not have symptoms, and tracing becomes more and more difficult as the numbers go up.


  • The relative risks of the Covid-19 mRNA inoculations must be different for different groups of people, and a risk-based approach would be well-focused and nuanced. A ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach must be the most risky.
  • Whole population inoculation is then a high risk strategy for an unproven experimental approach to disease control.
  • For unwell and immune-compromised people, especially old people with a short expected additional life span, the benefits of the Covid-19 inoculation may well outweigh the downsides.
  • For healthy people with robust immune systems there is very little benefit and potential unknown downsides, especially those who are young or pregnant.
  • When the individual, in consultation with their doctor if they wish, and a doctor not under pressure to promote a given approach, can not make their own choice, based on their particular circumstances and health, who is responsible for adverse consequences?
  • When are the rights of the individual, for instance under the Bill of Rights, more important than a (claimed) society-wide benefit?
  • How far can mandated or compulsory ‘vaccination’ extend before it becomes an infringement of the rights of citizens to make their own choices? On what evidence would this be based. The full range of contestable evidence, or a selected set decided by governing authorities, with policy and political agendas?
  • Given the effective protection of the jab is short term, and it does not prevent the spread of the virus, what is the balance of rights?  Why all the threats of restrictions and compulsion to achieve a very high level of ‘vaccination’?
  • What is the relative risk of spread from 10% of the population that are ‘unvaccinated’, compared to 90% of the population that are ‘vaccinated’ but can spread the virus, while being less likely to know that they are infectious?
  • What are the side-effects of these Covid-19 inoculations, and what data is being collected on adverse reactions or deaths immediately after being given the jabs?  Is this data being collected on the same basis as hospitalisations and deaths of people with Covid-19.
  • What risk assessments have the health authorities and government undertaken or reviewed on both Covid-19 itself and the Covid-19 innoculations, on a comparable data basis?  What are the society-wide costs and benefits?


  • The quarantine and lockdown measures, which have been very strict and excluding in Aotearoa/New Zealand, clearly have many consequences.
  • Social, economic and environmental consequences, along with health consequences on all other matters of health and well-being, are clear to anyone who takes the time to consider the information provided by the relevant practitioners and experts.
  • The restrictions on movements and personal contacts have obvious impacts on mental health and well-being, increasing stress, anxiety and frustration, while limiting family and social support, assistance and encouragement.
  • The wider effects on global trading networks of our very interdependent export/import economies are also readily apparent. The no-disruptions ‘business-as usual’ economy with ‘just-in-time’ supply lines dependent on rapid air transport and containerised shipping, is a very finely tuned low resilience system.
  • Where were these very important aspects of our lives and livelihoods in the decision-making of the government about the pandemic and its responses?  There has been no transparency about any of this, with a very single-focus approach and minimal explanation of the need and purposes of government directives and compulsory restrictions.
  • We are now starting to see (recognise?) the many foreseeable effects of the personal, national and global disruptions of lockdowns and quarantining.
  • Shortages and delays of a wide range of goods, and the dislocation of services that depend on person-to person contacts.


  • What will be the long term effects of the approach that has been taken to this pandemic. Of a disease that is really not that serious compared to past pandemics.
    Something to ponder about.
