Interview on Surani Fernando's "Vax Files" Apple podcast, "Real World Effectiveness of the Vaccine"

I was interviewed by investigative journalist Surani Fernando for her podcast here in the episode on "Real World Vaccine Effectiveness" as part of her "Vax Files" Apple podcast:



Other expert guests also appearing on this podcast include: Dr Maria Elena Bottazzi: Associate Dean of Tropical Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine Dr Nikolai Petrovsky: Prof of Medicine and vaccine developer, Flinders University Dr Andrew Read: evolutionary biologist & Prof of Biology, Penn State University


The discussion I was involved in covers the following topics:

  1. Real world effectiveness of the vaccines, the effect of the Delta variant, & waning effectiveness vs. infection.

  2. The basics of how the immune system works that explains why effectiveness wanes vs. infection but less so vs. severe disease

  3. Data showing that while breakthrough infections after vaccination still can transmit, they tend to transmit less than unvaccinated infections. While transmission is more than we hoped, we discuss source of the misimpression of no protection vs. transmission.

  4. The problem of people misinterpreting data because of a lack of understanding of the underlying quantitative nuances. Here is a quote where I think she summarizes it quite nicely:

"When people cherry pick simplified summaries of data that have not been properly stratified for normalized they can significantly distort the truth (and cause confusion), and this has been happening a lot during the pandemic with uninformed members of the public trying to interpret complex and multi-layered scientific data"


She is incredibly skilled as an investigative journalist and scientific communicator, with very accessible, well-organized podcasts.


Here is her website link that will also have future episodes, on which I will appear as well: https://feeds.resonaterecordings.com/the-covax-files

Dr. Morris, Thank you very much for all of the information that you have provided on your blog. I am wondering your thoughts on the recent CDC inpatient study reporting 5x reduction in "breakthrough" infection compared to second infection(in the 3 to 6 month window). This result is quite different than prior studies which were not inpatient restricted. I think also this is a very different study design that is not so intuitive to interpret. What caveats come with interpreting a study of this design?

I know you don't like Steve Kirsch... but would love to hear your rebuttal to FLUVOXAMINE which Kirsch has been talking about since at least Dec 2020, 350,000 deaths ago. Now he's been proven right.

instead we waste 10 months instead of doing studies early on is your counter argument? Even the argument of not enough data and not large enough sample size is disingenuous. Of the millions hospitalized or the hundreds of thousands who died, they could tried these therapeutics as last ditch attempts, and slowly over time, rolled back how soon they introduced it and expanded the data and sample study. The effect would have been confirmed a lot sooner.


And its not just fluvoxamine, dexamethasone and doxycycline also took a while for healthcare providers to start using, yet ventilation was used early on, while data was showing ventilators were irreparably damaging patients lungs and killing them. There is something fundamentally rotten in centralized medicine…
