Commentary... COVID vaccination concerns
Last updated 9/14/2022 at Noon
As a follow-up to my letter early last month, there were questions regarding my concerns over the dangers of the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. I am not an anti-vaccinator. It’s just that today’s mRNA vaccines present unique short-term concerns, and with potentially future, possibly dangerous, long-term complications.
I do agree with those that feel the early COVID vaccinations saved hundreds of thousands of lives at the start of the pandemic. They were particularly important to the older population with comorbidities. But along with the good came the bad: The politization of re-purposed therapeutics, the smear campaigns, the inappropriate late-stage COVID trials using ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine, and censoring of doctors applying early successful treatments, easily cost hundreds of thousands of lives.
The public health authorities violated the sacred doctor-patient relationship. And they did this in a nation with a Right-to-Try law. This was unacceptable to me in a civilized country. Censoring the use of two of the most administered and safest drugs on the planet, ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, for the early preventive treatment of COVID was pure politics. Therapeutics and vaccines are never mutually exclusive in public health. In my view, this was a crime against humanity. Please note the CDC has now recently approved the use of ivermectin for early COVID treatment.
The population of the United States is 338,289,857 people. The population of India is 1,417,173,173 people. Over four times greater. The deaths from COVID: United States — 1.03 million; India — 527,000. Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine are inexpensive and were widely distributed throughout India.
My wife and I both had remarkable improvement from the most-deadly form of COVID starting 24 hours after taking hydroxychloroquine and zinc. Sorry deniers — but not sorry!
The WHO had been compiling data last year, and in December 2021 finally released a list of five COVID variants of concern (VOC). These variants had multiple mutations suspected to impact virulence, transmission, and efficacy of the vaccines.
Dr. Deborah Birx, in a Fox News interview last month, said, “I knew these vaccines were not going to protect against infection. And I think we overplayed the vaccines.”
She knew you could never reach herd immunity with these vaccines, but said nothing. She continued to sell vaccine while burying the role of natural immunity. KUSI News also reported that according to the latest data from Health and Human Services, 67 percent of the 88 COVID-related deaths in the last three months in San Diego, California, were fully vaccinated and boostered. Conclusion: never, ever mandate a vaccine that does not protect you from catching the disease and does not protect you from spreading it. That is bad medicine and bad government. Reparations are due to all who lost their jobs and were ostracized due to bad politics and group think.
The spike protein mRNA vaccines mutate through a process called imprinting. This protein suppresses the immune system allowing the variant to still infect and spread in the vaccinated. The mRNA vaccines promote sustained synthesis of the SARS-CoV2 spike protein. These vaccines potentially cause increased risk to infectious disease and cancer. (Stephanie Seneff et. al. Food and Chemical Technology Vol. 164, June 22022, 113008)
The comments by The Nugget editor and anonymous source regarding Dr. Reynolds’ paper last month were correct. But you need to see the forest through the trees. The hybrid immune damping indicates substantial subversion of immune recognition. Modulation through immune imprinting is the likely reason why. In other words, the imprinted virus did not “help” the immune system like repeated vaccine boosters should. The virus suppressed the immune response. Another recent research publication (CELL 2022 Feb. 3 185(3) 467-484) describes the omicron evolution as “immune evasion” rather than suppression or dampening.
The point, again, is the COVID mutations are occurring quickly and dangerously by compromising our immune system. If the next COVID variant is a more deadly strain, it could be the vaccinated who are at greatest risk of death. Think about it. Dr. Harvey Risch, Yale University professor of epidemiology: “In fact, we know now that people who have multiple boosters have higher risk of getting the virus than unvaccinated people.”
To solidify these points, I alert the reader to a very recent letter to the editor of Virology Journal (Virol J. 2022; 19: 100) titled “Adverse Effects of COVID-19 vaccines and Measures to Prevent Them.” A study published in The Lancet showed that eight months after the administration of two doses of COVID vaccine, immune function was lower among vaccinated individuals compared to the unvaccinated.
The article goes on, “According to the European Medicines Agency, frequent COVID-19 booster shots could adversely affect the immune response and may not be feasible. Organ damage, especially among immunocompromised individuals, is also a concern. As a safety measure, further vaccination should be discontinued.”
The highly jabbed Joe Biden is a poster child for a struggling suppressed immune system as he was trying to get rid of yet another, even milder, COVID infection.
