Stanford quietly drops vaccine requirement
Shhhh!!! Do not tell anyone. It sure looks like it isn't required anymore.
NOTE: There is conflicting information on the Stanford website. Not even Stanford faculty can figure it out. We’ll know more on Monday.
Stanford quietly dropped their vaccination requirements.
How did I find out?
I just happened to be browsing on their website.
There was no announcement as far as I know.
Since there is no benefit for community spread, since only 1 in a million kids might die from COVID, and many more reasons, this policy never made any sense.
I can’t believe they finally dropped it. I didn’t even get a phone call.
Stanford’s earlier guidance required vaccination.
So it’s hard to tell. I’m confused. But it looks like they dropped it.
According to the HHS
We have national health emergency's for Covid-19 / Monkeypox and the Opioid Crisis.
Why don't we have one for Myocarditis? The world death rate for Monkeypox is something like 25 people.
Myocarditis certainly has killed more people recently. The rise in cases / deaths is obvious.
"WHO" at HHS determines when to declare a National Health Emergency and what are the determining factors?
Only the Director of the HHS at his personal discretion? No others are in on the decision? Just one dictator?
Director/Dictator Xavier Becerra is a Lawyer / Economist / Politician .. not a doctor (although he is married to one)
I wonder if he'll listen to anyone from his alma mater (Stanford) about lifting the Covid-19 National Health Emergency?
Hi Steve, others are asking on another Substack site:
"I heard Stanford quietly has scrapped their vax mandate. I think Atlas and Battacharya are both there or at least affiliated?"
I had posted about the Reps. Chip Roy,Thomas Massie and the Freedom Caucus holding an excellent hearing this week with testimony of Drs. Scott Atlas, Jay Battacharya, Martin Kulldorf.
So do you think that dropping vax mandates are side effects of more recent public pressure and exposure?
Dr. Scott Atlas in particular was determined, fearless, and let no opportunity to make a point go by, well prepared, and had so many ideas for reform of HHS and all its OPDivs as they are called (NIH, CDC, FDA, and all the rest) and about academia and science journals.
It would be great to keep that discussion rolling and ongoing --how to reconstruct the system-- with Dr. Atlas and any others focused on that topic in your VSRF weekly call format.
