Inefficacious: not able to produce the desired effect; ineffective.
I guess it depends on the desired effect….
This chart is from page 3 of a Walgreens COVID-19 Index file, available online here.
Note that those who never took the jab have a lower positivity status than all other groups except for those who repeatedly take and recently have taken the jab.
Now, I am pretending that covid is a thing, that the tests are reliable and accurate, etc., etc., etc.
The above chart is for all age groups. But try this, for age 65 and older:
And for those 45 – 64:
You are free to check the various age groups – some are not as damning (at least on the statistic of positivity rate) for the jab as the two age groups included above.
I am not qualified to interpret the whats and whys of different results for different age groups. I just find the raw data…curious.
Finally, from page 1 of the file:
We are now approaching the highs of last winter – in the summer we are approaching the high of the winter flu season. Note the difference in the positivity rate this summer to last summer.
Inefficacious? Or working as intended?
