What to do with our most successful vax researcher for decades? Sack him.

Professor Nikolai Petrovsky

Professor Nikolai Petrovsky

The South Australian government has declared there will be no more “exemptions” from mandates for people who take part in clinical trials.  So workers taking a locally made vaccine, called Covax-19, will have to take approved vaccines as well or get sacked. It doesn’t matter what their antibody count is, or whether it might even be risky to follow up Covax with a different vaccine. It’s not about their health, don’t you know?

Covax-19 is a traditional old fashioned protein vaccine. It’s still the old WuFlu spike, though without the furin cleavage sequence (which probably makes it safer). It’s been approved for use in Iran, and given to two million people there, remarkably with apparently no incidence of myocarditis or blood clots. Perhaps that’s the problem — it’s a threat to the current vaccines?

Since Prof  Nikolai Petrovski tested Covax on himself before testing it on others, he may have to be sacked for not also getting vaccinated with an approved vaccine. He is no longer allowed to attend Flinders University or the Flinders Medical Centre, according to the ABC.

Great way to promote Australian science: Let bureaucrats decide which vaccine the Professors of vaccines should take. What could possibly go wrong?

Vaccine researcher Nikolai Petrovsky loses mandate exemption for his COVID-19 vaccine

ABC Radio:  South Australians taking part in a COVID-19 vaccine trial will no longer be exempt from state government mandates affecting schools, aged care and health care centres.

The problem, it seems, was that Covax-19 was too popular.

A number of prominent local social media platforms have been advocating for people to avoid having vaccines approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) by signing up to planned COVAX-19 clinical trials.

—  COVID-19 vaccine mandate loophole closed

And we wouldn’t want people to have a choice, would we?

It’s not that Petrovsky’s vax didn’t work or caused harm. It was because people might be signing up to avoid getting Pfizer, Moderna or Astrazenica. And if that were the case, surely the solution would be to rush supplies of Covax to Australia? It’s what the hesitant people want after all. But that’s not what the SA government suggested.

Like a Christmas present for Pfizer?

With these rules newcomer-vaccines will find it harder to get trial participants as people are forced out of the early trials with draconian threats.

I guess we wouldn’t want to accidentally discover a better vaccine when we’ve ordered 100 billion boosters already in secret contracts that may have given away the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Who needs Australian made vaccines, Australian expertise, and Australian profits? It’s so much better to have supply lines to Marburg and Massachusetts with vaccines approved through secret data by the FDA.

For what it’s worth, even with all the hurdles bureaucrats are putting in the way, the people are working to make this happen. So the GoFundMe campaign for this vaccine has raised $782,000 and thousands of people have signed up to participate.

Works in Iran:

December 8, 2021 by Sharen Petrovsky, GoFundME Organizer

By way of update, 2 million doses of our vaccine have now been safely distributed through immunization centres in Iran. There have been no reports of anaphylaxis, myocarditis or blood clotting, which given the extremely large number of doses administered is extremely reassuring. Trial Ethics and TGA applications are both submitted and we will let you know when we hear anything further. We have added a link to a recent interview of Prof. Petrovsky for your interest. We are now 3/4 of the way to our target.
How much longer will Australians put up with this?

    “It’s been approved for use in Iran, and given to two million people there, remarkably with apparently no incidence of myocarditis or blood clots.”

    Remarkably? Could we reasonably expect Iran to openly share any problems with their vaccine and risk people protesting?

      A relevant point Clyde.

      Without knowing the background and motives of the people engaged in this trial it’s hard to guess at the usefulness of this vaccine.

      There are many good people in Iran and it may well be that the trial is well intentioned and looking to do the right thing by the population.

      Iran is a weird case.

      They have been VERY cosy with China since the fall of the shah, and it also seems that China had a LOT of political and technological input in that “fall”.

      These links include VERY close military ties, possibly including NBC weapons; think back to the mass slaughter of the Iran / Iraq war. Both the soviets and the Chinese were deeply into that conflict.

      The big question is how an ultra-religious cult leapt into the cot with the “Godless” communist Chinese.

      Iran was hit hard by Kung Flu, but in specific areas, it seems.

      The big mystery is the entire arrangement. The ruling class in Iran is not just Shia, but a “special” branch of “End Times” Shia. This, oddly enough, they share with the Allawite Syrian Junta. What this means is that they are adherents to belief in the “Twelfth Imam”, a decidedly Messianic character, who will only re-appear when the world is in utter chaos, to sort out the “nice” (Ultra-devout” and the “naughty” (everyone else): A very “different” sort of Santa).

      The remaining Iranian Zoroastrians are probably wondering the same as they dodge repression from Savak. and “freelance” operations.

      You can hide a lot of interesting things in the Iranian outback, but a sudden upsurge in mass graves in a cemetery is not one of them.

      So, why run a vax trial of an Oz brew in Iran? Chinese money in play, again/ still? Will we suddenly see “SinoVax 2” released to “save the world”?

      KOVID: the greatest political disease in history.

      At this stage I think the reliability of the BS being spruiked from our own Government might not be any more reliable than that from Iran.

      Try this on for example

      This is a lie by the Australian Government. The vaccines have been provisionally approved only.

        Approved for emergency use I thought it was. (same thing though)
        The PCR is also only approved for emergency use, 21 months and they still can’t flog that dead horse past the post.

      Not sure why they would want to protect the reputation of an Australian made vaccine? If it caused issues I’m unclear why they wouldn’t pull it and use it to bash Australia and the West for poor medical practices.

    Another shameful episode in a long-running story of government and institutional corruption.
    Everyone should be offered a test to see if they have antibodies for the wu-flu before being told they have to have any vaccine or booster shot.
    If boosters are proven to be needed, Covax would appear to be the safest option.

    “How much longer will Australians put up with this?”
    I’ll ask another question; If the government is literally holding guns to our heads (yes, they did it at the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne just a couple of weeks ago), just what do you propose we do if we are fed-up?
    Obviously, talking and demonstrating and the odd win in the courts aren’t changing things. If anything, with each new protest the GESTAPO actually ratchet up the violence and suppression and summary justice.
    So, don’t just bleat about being fed-up, tell us what you think will make a difference. A real difference. How do we stop these thugs from bullying us?

      The ballot box would be the easiest and most peaceful way to get rid of the despots. The problem is it’s unlikely to happen that way because the vast majority of the population:

      1) don’t give a damn, or
      2) too clueless to understand what’s going on, or
      3) are in favour of the move towards tyranny, or
      4) are completely stupid, or
      5) two or more of the above.

          The problem is that only part of democracy ever happens. Demos – participation by the people continues although in the UK it is waning as the public realise that they are repeatedly lied to during election campaigns – one interviewee once laughed when asked about why something in their manifesto was dropped saying it was just electioneering – and that voting makes little difference. Note that the UK EU referendum got a large turnout as the vote actually meant something. So that highlights that the second part – kratos – the power of voting is missing.

          While mentioning Winston Churchill, he also said that 5 minutes spent talking to the average voter indicated that democracy was not such a good idea given the ignorance of the majority of the population. That is still true today, if not more so given the failings of the legacy media and education.

          To replace it with a worse one in the form of Labor/Greens. Democracy is a shambles and nothing much can be said for it except the in principle right to a franchise. Problem is that the vast majority are idiots who are incapable of making an informed vote. Our politicians are despicable in the main. Give me a well-intentioned autocrat.

          If the Liberals had not kow-towed to basically every leftist fantasy, and had actually governed for the good of Australia, they would have done a much better job.

          Labor Green alliance would be far far worse, because they are even more anti-conservative and irrational leftist that the Liberals. Disaster in the making.

          A win for a reasonable number of Lib-Dems and United Australia candidates would be a huge plus for the whole country.

          Sanity, morality and common sense, sadly lacking from the Liberal/Labor/Green alliance, may have a chance of ruling again.

        Suffrage Debate, N.Y. Constitutional Convention of 1821
        Chancellor James Kent:

        By the report before us, we propose to annihilate, at one stroke, all those property distinctions and to bow before the idol of universal suffrage. That extreme democratic principle, when applied to the legislative and executive departments of government, has been regarded with terror, by the wise men of every age, because in every European republic, ancient and modern, in which it has been tried, it has terminated disastrously, and been productive of corruption, injustice, violence, and tyranny.

        The tendency of universal suffrage, is to jeopardize the rights of property, and the principles of liberty. There is a constant tendency in human society, and the history of every age proves it; there is a tendency in the poor to covet and to share the plunder of the rich; in the debtor to relax or avoid the obligation of contracts; in the majority to tyrannize over the minority, and trample down their rights; in the indolent and the profligate, to cast the whole burthens of society upon the industrious and the virtuous; and there is a tendency in ambitious and wicked men, to inftame these combustible materials. It requires a vigilant government, and a firm administration of justice, to counteract that tendency. Thou shalt not covet; thou shalt not steal; are divine injunctions induced by this miserable depravity of our nature.

        The notion that every man that works a day on the road, or serves an idle hour in the militia, is entitled as of right to an equal participation in the whole power of the government, is most unreasonable, and has no foundation in justice.

        Society is an association for the protection of property as well as of life, and the individual who contributes only one cent to the common stock, ought not to have the same power and influence in directing the property concerns of the partnership, as he who contributes his thousands. He will not have the same inducements to care, and diligence, and fidelity. His inducements and his temptation would be to divide the whole capital upon the principles of an agrarian law.

        Liberty, rightly understood, is an inestimable blessing, but liberty without wisdom, and without justice, is no better than wild and savage licentiousness. The danger which we have hereafter to apprehend, is not the want, but the abuse, of liberty. We have to apprehend the oppression of minorities, and a disposition to encroach on private right—to disturb chartered privileges—and to weaken, degrade, and overawe the administration of justice; we have to apprehend the establishment of unequal, and consequently, unjust systems of taxation, and all the mischiefs of a crude and mutable legislation.

      Governments are getting away with it because the majority is still on their side, still buying the narrative. The only thing to do is to get the truth out there. Websites like this are essential. Thank you Jo!

      Here is heather Heyling making the point that most people dont even know there are alternatives to the vaccines:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ogssvgn7G-4

      The whole vaccine mandate thingy collapses if there are cheaper and better alternatives to the vaccines. That will start a domino effect. All media are hijacked or censored, so word of mouth about websites like this is really important.

      Omicron is also a game changer, it is killing no one in South Africa whilst cases are going through the roof:
      https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/south-africa/

      Meaning the virus has done us all a favour and mutated into something harmless. That also allows one to push back against mandates, digital passes and emergency pandemic laws etc. But the truth about alternative medicines must still come out. Pfizer et al. must be exposed!

      If the whole population stood up and said “stop”..it would stop.

      The simple reality is they can send 100 riot pold and water canon etc, but 100 vs against 20,000 people, no chance.

      If people truly want to stop this, they can by refusing to play their little f**isct game.

      And yes, the reality s some peopel could get killed or injured. Opposing tyranny and defeating it is going to be expensive in some form.

      They rely on people being very middle class “it cant happen here” to try and ignore it.

    This blog has had so many incisive posts like this one that the truth about Climate change and now Covid19 is here and available to those who want it.

    One of my hobbies is to listen to their ABCCC on the radio while driving.

    What is constantly pumped out is the Graetanesque refrain barely hidden by the voice of authority;

    ” How Dare You “.

    Yes, how dare you indeed make the decision not to get VaCCinated against the massive CV19 presence.

    ” get thee to a nunnery ” and get VaCCinated, or we’ll cancel you.

    Think about the ABCCC, it’s emblematic of the control hovering over us day and night.

A bit like Greg Hunt. Resigning or not being reinstated. ” Want to spend more time with the family” etc. ( did anyone ask their family?). Birx, Cuomo, Young (CHO Queensland), Hunt.

        How are they going to incarcerate a whole population?

    Thanks again Jo for a clear informed post about this issue.
    I live in SA.
    I’m open to trialling the Petrovsky Covax vaccine even though I have already had the double jab of AstroZenica.
    In fact it would be good to get it as the booster shot which is now becoming necessary.

    The current SA Liberal government is in an extremely weak position politically.
    it doesn’t even have the numbers now to manage the legislative Assembly any longer.
    It depends on the votes of Independents among whom is my own local member for Kavel in the Adelaide Hills.
    He’s also the Speaker of the House.

    There is in fact increasing concern about the Marshal Liberal party government’s future.
    It faces a state election in March 2022 – just 4 month away.
    And this Covax vaccine issue needs to be one of the things put before the SA public.

      Also Vicki Chapman the Deputy leader of the party & Atourney General
      was forced to resign both positions after the House of Assembly
      Passed a motion of no Confidence in her a week or so ago.

      The interesting thing is that Labour is running Dead on this Covax vaccine issue.
      So I wonder what their agenda is ?
      Perhaps just “Don’t scare the ponies”.

    Jo, thanks for this story. Honestly, you just want to cry. That’s my first reaction – then I just get even more angry – if that is possible.

    Putting aside the sheer evil of this – it is pretty clear that the terms of the Pfizer contract must preclude any rival. Although I don’t understand how that has not precluded Novavax, which we know we have ordered – although it is a long time coming.

    At the very least the authorities could have permitted exemptions for the volunteers for the clinical trial of Covax19. After all, in RCTs it would be a prerequisite for no other medication to be administered. It is an evil act. Hopefullly, even that will not work, as I would think that volunteers will tell them what to do with their Pfizer, AZ & Moderna.

I’m in Queensland and the present ” rules ” allow an exemption from having the present muck injected into you if you can prove you are in a trial. I’m due to see my Doctor on the 17th, to get a covering letter to confirm my enrolment in the trial for Covax-19…whats’ the bet he refuses to give me the letter.

      My wife and I have also signed up for the trial and we are in QLD. I had sent several letters to the CHO and made phone calls asking for vaccine trial members to be exempt. I was not the only one and inexplicably but properly this has been included in the latest guidelines.

      The rest of the content of the guidelines is evil and utterly wrong, institutionalising Apartheid. Anna and our CHO, and the entire QLD govt are incompetent and incapable of reading the most basic research showing that the current crop of “vaxxes” do nothing for stopping the spread at all, so the immoral restriction of the unjabbed has no basis at all. Nikolai says initial data is that the covax does assist here and does not wane like the horrors from Pfizer and co.

        Likewise…I’ve contacted both Queensland Health and after they ignored me, the Health Minister.

        Neither seem interested in scientific research or the chance of providing the public with a more effective vaccine. I also spent some time yesterday reading the health directives, and as you point out, being in a trial has mysteriously been included in the directives about to come into force on the 17th. When I have a letter from my Doctor in my hand, I’ll believe the directives.

        Without unvaccinated people prepared to be in a trial, you would not be able to provide the TGA with any useful data I assume…which appears to be the exact intent of the Sth Australian Government. I’ll be interested to see if the morons up here do likewise. If they do, it really speaks volumes about the whole evil situation.

    Utterly shameful. I am aware of another trial of an Australian-developed vaccine InGeneIC, and I know people on it. They were fully expecting to get exemptions after their antibody tests so they can work, shop, go to restaurants and generally participate in life.

    This is simply beyond belief. Is this what Australian science and medicine has come to? It’s the Leftist notion of the “settled science” being only what the Elites decide. This follows the same pattern of banning HCQ, IVM and a year ago, rapid antigen testing (just recently approved).

    Pfizer’s Power

    In February, Pfizer was accused of “bullying” governments in COVID vaccine negotiations in a groundbreaking story by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.[1] A government official at the time noted, “Five years in the future when these confidentiality agreements are over you will learn what really happened in these negotiations.”[2]

    Public Citizen has identified several unredacted Pfizer contracts that describe the outcome of these negotiations. The contracts offer a rare glimpse into the power one pharmaceutical corporation has gained to silence governments, throttle supply, shift risk and maximize profits in the worst public health crisis in a century. We describe six examples from around the world below.[3]

    The more desperate the efforts by governments to force vaccination become, the more I am inclined to believe Robert F. Kennedy’s belief – that the objective is to remove the ‘control group’.

    If our worst fears are realised, i.e that on top of the immediate adverse reactions and deaths we know about, significant numbers of people are affected or die in years to come, then having a large number of unvaccinated people to compare with would reveal it was indeed the vaccine that did the harm.

    If there are no unvaccinated people to compare with, any and all deaths in the future can be blamed on unknown causes or just plonked into a near-enough category. In fact, the drug companies will probably decide that any big uptick in mortality ten years from now is due to having Covid in the past and, guess what? We have an antidote for that!

    If you have covid antibodies, whether the source be from the Government mandated “vaccines”, real vaccines such as Covax-19 or InGeneIC; or have recovered from the disease, what difference does it make? You are still more or less protected (less so with the mandated substances).

      The science here is non existent, its a naked attempt to force people who have absolutely no need of it, to be jabbed. In a past world we used to be concerned about over medication, and about people taking treatments they did not need.

    I am vexed by the need to continue the forced vaccine program. Even the WHO has stated that the new Omicron variant has not lead to any deaths to date. We are well aware of Muller’s Ratchet. So the vexing bit is this. Omicron is not causing deaths but you must be vaccinated with our specially authorised experimental injections. However, influenza which continues to cause deaths and has a fully approved vaccine does not require a forced vaccination program. Surely this discrepancy is the real $56 billion dollar question!

    Talk about a litany of wasted opportunities in Australia for the last 20 months. Early 2020 I saw interviews with researchers from the Doherty Institute who were about to trial HCQ in medical workers as prophylaxis vs COVID. That was stopped, possibly because at the time there wasn’t enough COVID in Australia anyway thanks to lockdowns. An Australian company had developed a rapid COVID test at about the same time- blood prick type test, very accurate, cheap and ready to go. They informed the Vic Govt and got stony silence. Free thinking doctors in Qld actually treated Tom Hanks with HCQ when he contracted COVID. He got better and flew off for his next movie role. Later the Qld govt banned HCQ. I first learnt about IVM via this site , but a group of very well credentialed medical researchers from Monash Uni in Melbourne had already highlighted the potential benefits of that wonder drug for COVID. Prof Nikolai Petrovski took one look at the structure of COVID in early 2020 and declared it was a manipulated structure – in other words, not a completely natural variant. Now Australia has a chance to develop its own vaccine via Prof Nikolai Petrovski but every obstacle has been thrown in his way. All of those events could have lead Australia to have had minimal COVID disruption. We probably could have avoided lockdowns, border closures and police firing rubber bullets at peaceful protestors. Dare I say we probably could have also minimised the COVID death toll. We need a total clean out of every politician, CHO, health bureaucrat that was ever involved in the COVID response.

      Also, in Australia, a very high number of PCR amplification cycles is used. Even Lord Fauci says any number beyond 30 is pointless. I read that in Australia a figure of 40-45 is used. Since it is exponential, 45 is 2^15 times or 32,768 more sensitive than 30 times. Or 40 times is 1024 times more sensitive than 30 times. It is therefore not reliable and very likely yielding a very large numbers of false positives. But that serves the interest of Government, the Elites, Big Pharma and the Left (all much the same people) who are trying to make this pandemic far worse than it really us.

      Reference for PCR cycles:

      https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-03-12/coronacheck-pcr-tests-ct-cycles-misinformation/13237684

      According to Dr Druce, PCR tests for COVID-19 are analysed through “about 40 to 45 heat and cooling cycles”, with most tests in Australia capped at 40 cycles.

    We just rec’d a letter from the government, pushing vaccination. It the letter, it states that Australia has bought another 151 MILLION doses. Our total population is ca. 26M, of which (they say) 89% are already “fully vaccinated”.

    Even if all the currently unvaccinated submit to having their two doses, we’re still left with 145M doses, enough for more than 5 doses for every man, woman, teenager, child and baby.

    I wonder what the shelf life of those shots is? I wouldn’t be surprised if the recommended interval for boosters is calculated, not on the basis of science or evidence, but on wanting to avoid accusations of wasting money on very expensive, expired shots.

      I think Big pharma had originally pencilled in at least a couple of billion doses for India. Although India are vaccinating its nowhere near the original estimates the marketing department of Pfizer would have hoped for. Did someone say IVM?? (sorry KFC) Hence, Australia might be getting those doses at a good price. That’s my half glass full type statement. They would also be getting those in batches, so not 150 m doses at a time.

    Australia will never be more than a sporting nation curiosity until the people demand our political representatives stop paying lip service to science and innovation and truly fund it for the purpose of keeping our true talent on these shores.
    The Commonwealth Serum Laboratory exclusivity agreement with the experimental mRNA is what is standing in the way of Federal support of Covax as the federal government says it won’t recognise any vax which isn’t manufactured by the CSL, despite Covax surpassing all TGA and US FDA checklists in its development stages.
    Meanwhile Pzifer is considered experimental until 2027 and the FDA won’t produce documentation on the mRNA vaccines they ‘approved’ until 2095!
    we are told covid is a rapidly changing environment, yet swallow Pfizer – never previously producing vaccines – saying their original vax from 2020 was so brilliant it is 100% effective in its original form against EVERY variant since and should be a booster for EVERY YEAR from now on…according to Pfizer executives who have been licenced to jab every human over the age of 5….still under emergency powers!
