In early October, Reykjavik, Iceland hosted the ‘Let the Science Speak’ conference, featuring discussions on the perceived harms of Covid injections and the World Health Organization’s expanding authority. Sasha Latypova, one of the six speakers, reported a substantial turnout, both in-person and via livestream, with over 200 attendees in the packed conference room.
Latypova noted the presence of state media, suggesting heightened official concern in the small country.
About six weeks post-conference, Latypova received word that the Icelandic government had declared an end to Covid vaccinations in the country starting the following week. The conference organizers, spurred by this development, arranged a follow-up meeting with the Icelandic Ministry of Health.
Recent updates reveal that an announcement in the Icelandic daily paper Morgunbladid on November 17 indicated a shift in focus. While influenza vaccinations would still be available to the public, the notice stated that Covid vaccinations were temporarily suspended. Latypova, commenting on the situation, highlighted the peculiarities of the decision.
The article quoted Ragnheiður Óskar Erlendsdóttir, the director of nursing at the Capital Region Health Service, acknowledging a surge in respiratory infections. Covid-19 was characterized as now being akin to any other flu, prompting a request for people to stay home during severe symptoms to prevent the spread of infections.
Since October 18, both Covid and influenza vaccinations had been accessible for individuals aged 60 and over and those with underlying health conditions. However, attendance for vaccinations was reported as moderate, leading to the suspension of Covid vaccinations while influenza shots continued.
In a surprising twist, local journalists discovered a lack of clarity surrounding the government’s decision to halt Covid vaccinations. Limited availability was restricted to a single pharmacy in the entire country, with an unusual condition—individuals seeking the jab were required to bring four friends to avoid wasting vaccine doses.
Latypova declared a victory in Iceland, attributing it to public awareness and opposition to the perceived damage caused by mass vaccination. Referencing a graph from Our World in Data, she argued that Iceland did not experience a true pandemic, and excess mortality occurred only after the deployment of injectable vaccines.
Latypova criticized the authorities for downplaying the situation, suggesting they preferred obscure announcements to avoid public scrutiny. She also emphasized the reluctance of health agencies to acknowledge the potential adverse effects of mass vaccination campaigns, framing them as misguided efforts in combating alleged pandemics.
In conclusion, the narrative suggests a grassroots victory against perceived government-led mass vaccination efforts in Iceland, driven by skepticism regarding the safety and effectiveness of the Covid vaccines. The author points to data and observations to support the claim that Iceland’s situation is not reflective of a genuine pandemic but rather the consequences of widespread vaccination.
