    Default Influenza Vaccine And Respiratory Virus Interference

    Full title: Influenza vaccination and respiratory virus interference among Department of Defense personnel during the 2017-2018 influenza season.

    Wolf GG
    January 10 2020

    Abstract
    PURPOSE:

    Receiving influenza vaccination may increase the risk of other respiratory viruses, a phenomenon known as virus interference. Test-negative study designs are often utilized to calculate influenza vaccine effectiveness. The virus interference phenomenon goes against the basic assumption of the test-negative vaccine effectiveness study that vaccination does not change the risk of infection with other respiratory illness, thus potentially biasing vaccine effectiveness results in the positive direction. This study aimed to investigate virus interference by comparing respiratory virus status among Department of Defense personnel based on their influenza vaccination status. Furthermore, individual respiratory viruses and their association with influenza vaccination were examined.

    Forgive me but I don't understand any of this. Maybe I need a fresh cup of coffee.
    For one thing, I don't understand what pan-negative results means. And beyond that, I am unable to make any sese of the conclusion. I think I need a translator!

    This is a bunch of gobbledygook!! I researched "pan-negative results" and came up with nothing!!! Bottom line: The flu vaccine may increase one's risk of contracting other respiratory viruses--this is called vaccine interference. The study concluded, in part, that vaccine interference was "significantly" associated with coronavirus and human metapneumovirus.

    And, the shame of it all is elderly people risk this viral interference for a flu vaccine that has proven about 12% effective for the elderly. You get better protection by taking vit. C and zinc supplements.

    So true, Mr. Wiz. I read today that here in Rio 80% of the elderly population (which has been targeted in a current push) have been vaccinated for flu, and 50% of health care workers, who were also considered a target demographic. It really made me sad.

    It also made me wonder if the other 50% of health care workers are just too busy to take the time to get vaccinated, or if they know something they're not letting on about.

    Hmm. Interesting that members responded quite differently when I posted the same information a few weeks ago from a different source.

    Bolsanaro contradicts himself if he is pushing for flu vaccination: "Brazilians, he declared last week, are uniquely suited to weather the pandemic because they can be dunked in raw sewage and dont catch a thing.

    Unbelievable comments from Bolsanaro. It is clear to me that several "world leaders" don't trust the science and data coming from the World Health Organization, as the data show no one or no country is "uniquely suited to weather the pandemic."

    Just to clarify, I believe the vaccination push here in Rio was decided by local health authorities, not by Bolsonaro.

    Also, FWIW, sentiment here about extreme social distancing seems divided along socio-economic lines. This is purely anecdotal, of course, but in my conversations, almost all, if not all, of the regular working people (Uber drivers, nurse aides, the cashier at the greengrocer's, for example) don't agree with extreme social distancing and hope to see the restrictions lifted yesterday. People with more money, in general, are okay with it.

    Two weeks after being warned, on Dec. 31, by the government of Taiwan about the seriousness of the coronavirus, the WHO said it was not transmissable human to human. Why would anybody blindly trust the WHO?
