Dear Scottish Government,

Why is the whole country being vaccinated and what is the justification for this?

Covid-19 is no more deadly than a bad flu year.
Statistics show 1992 has a similar amount of deaths.
Covid-19 deaths would not be so high if people weren't sent back to nursing homes when infected.
Covid-19 is not a high consequence infectious disease.
The PCR tests don't prove if a person is infectious with Covid-19 and the WHO and government admit they are not accurate and give too many false positives.
Deaths are registered if a person has tested positive with in 28 and are reported as deaths involving Covid-19. This gives no indication of deaths that are a direct result of Covid 19.
The R number is based around the imperial college model which relies on deaths. This cant be accurately calculated as the actual deaths are not known.
The whole Pandemic was based around the Imperial college discredited model

So it is not a HCID, we don't know how many people are dying from it, we don't know how many people have it, hospital admissions are down, the R number is not accurate, it is not any more deadly than a bad flu year, why are we vaccinating people with an unknown medicine?

Yours faithfully,
Average Joe

Dear Scottish Government,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Scottish Government's handling of my FOI request 'Why is the whole country being vaccinated and what is the justification for this?'.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ]
You have not answered either of my questions. The information you have provided is either generic or not relevant.

1. Why is the whole country being vaccinated and what is the justification for this.
In the reply you have said that the "decision making was guided by the latest scientific evidence" that does not tell me anything.
If you explain what the scientific evidence is that would cover the why part of the question.
If you could then explain the decision making on the back of the scientific evidence that would cover the justification part of the question.

2. Why are we vaccinating people with an unknown medicine?
The answer is not relevant as the current Pfizer vaccine has not been through "rigorous independant testing" and it is not licensed. It has a non peer reviewed trial carried out by pfizer which has not met the requirements set out to meet 50% efficacy. It only has an emergency medial authorisation for the "immunisation to prevent covid 19" but it does not prevent covid 19. It is only claimed to reduce symptomatic covid 19.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/w...

Dear Scottish Government,

By law you should have responded by the 25th of March.
I dont understand why you haven't answered my questions since over 2 million people have already been vaccinated.
