The University of Cape Town committed to reply to PANDA’s series of questions stemming from their Student Engagement Session on Mandatory Vaccination. Since no reply has been forthcoming, PANDA members have answered the questions themselves, in what has turned out to be an excellent takedown of UCT’s bad science. Can you trust that your University is not lying to you?
It is worth remembering that proponents on both sides of the debate have the same goal. We all want to reduce death, misery and harm while maintaining human dignity.
Vaccine passports are a pointless ‘public health’ tool that will undermine trust in the medical profession and vaccination programs. They seem to serve economic, financial, political and ideological agendas. Most fundamentally, they are unethical.
Asking questions is at the heart of science. Science is not an institution and not an authority. Science is never settled. It is forever evolving through conjecture and criticism.

Censoring dissenting voices eliminates the mechanism of error correction and pushes humanity back into the dark ages.
Covid-19 brought about an age of misinformation like never before. This article takes a deep dive into the issue of natural immunity and Covid-19 vaccination. It provides evidence of natural immunity and is impeccably researched and well worth reading.

The clear intention of the Daily Maverick article is to silence PANDA’s voice. Publishing personal information about selected members and their employers knowing that it was irrelevant to the topic of the article can have had no other purpose.
