COMIRNATY COVID-19 Vaccine efficacy

Paul Jones made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

Ministry of Health did not have the information requested.

From: Paul Jones

Dear Ministry of Health,

Concerning the Data Sheet for COMIRNATY COVID-19 Vaccine available here.

https://www.medsafe.govt.nz/profs/Datash...

With reference to Page 8 it lists "Table 2: Vaccine efficacy" stating that across All Subjects the Vaccine efficacy is 95%.

Bill Gates is a well known reader of the book titled "How to Lie with Statistics" and it seems that Medsafe and the Ministry of Health has been mislead about vaccine efficacy.

Efficacy calculated by dividing the 8 conmirnaty cases by 162 placebo cases to give the 95% [100 - (8/162)*100] efficacy is pure fraud and misleading.

The correct method for calculating efficacy is to divide the number of cases in conmirnaty's 8 by the cohort of 18,198 cases in the test group. To give 0.043% [(8/18198)*100] infection rate for the vaccinated group.

Then for the Placebo group with 162 infected in a cohort of 18,325 cases gives a 0.88% [(162/18325)*100] infection rate.

So the efficacy of the vaccine versus the Placebo group is in fact only a 0.837% improvement [0.88-0.043].

So how is it the NZ Government has been mislead by Pfizer through fraudulent and misleading statistics?

Yours faithfully,

Paul Jones

Dear Paul
Thank you for your email.  I have consulted with my colleagues regarding
your queries and I can confirm that Medsafe has assessed data to support
the quality, safety and efficacy of Comirnaty against international
standards and guidelines as part the evaluation of Pfizer’s new medicine
application for consent to distribute the vaccine. This includes the
information presented in the data sheet, which aligns with the clinical
evidence available for the medicine, as well as product information
approved by other international regulatory authorities.
I hope this answers your queries.
Kind regards
Becci

I didn't really ask a question in there for a proper response, so we will close this off. However those who read this can decide form themselves if the efficacy is been reported fraudulently or not.
