Here is the truth about the mRNA vaccines. The looked great after the clinical trials and when they were initially released. In the first few weeks and months they had high effectiveness against infection. Then around six months after last dose, effectiveness has began to drop significantly, eventually reaching zero. Some of this may have been inadequate testing to determine both the optimal dose and the best dosing schedule. It appears for certain that we did not have the initial doses scheduled far enough apart. There is no reason to criticize the testing process given the situation with the epidemic. Speed was foremost. We have had previous epidemics where there was a massive effort to get a vaccine in place as quickly as possible. The dumber decision, in my view, was to make vaccines solely prompting a response to spike protein, which is the most mutation-prone part of the virus. Adding substantial segments of other viral proteins would be more like natural adaptive immunity.
Effectiveness against hospitalization and death has held up better, but also shows signs of lessening over a longer period of time. So of course the solution from our public health experts was “just take more shots”. So people got boosters. The boosters show the exact pattern that the original doses did–initial effectiveness against infection which then recedes pretty quickly. Hmmm, the experts thought, if one booster didn’t do the trick, how about another one. So now we have people getting fourth doses. This one shows signs of having very little effectiveness. And immunologists know why, so more of them should be speaking out. The immune system can get exhausted and stop responding if it gets poked too much with the same stimulus. In fact, you can leave a person worse off. I think that is where we are with boosters. I got the original one, but I will not be getting any more.
This study provides additional evidence for how worthless the fourth shot is. The research is published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, which like all woke and herd-mentality medical publications has generally been a strong proponent of vaccinating everyone no matter what. But I suspect even this is too much evidence for them to ignore. Coming from Israel, the study finds that a fourth dose, after a short period of apparent protection against infection compared to three doses, lost effectiveness completely within two months, which is far faster than was experienced with either the two-dose regimen or the first booster. The followup period was limited, so protection against severe infection seemed to remain strong during that time, but I suspect even a six-month follow-up would show limited value of a fourth dose against serious disease.

Here in our beloved state of Walz Ditzy World, the Incompetent Blowhard hisself, Little Timmy Walz, and our chief terror campaign cheerleader, un-Health Commissioner Jan Malcom, made a show of getting the second booster this week. Hopefully no one paid attention. Just as public seems pretty done with masks, it should also pass on never-ending vaccine doses.

Friends of mine commented to me this weekend that they had just received their 4th shot!! But they were planning on laying low for 10 days to 2 weeks to build better immunity. I suggested they get the best use out of their latest shot as it wasn’t going to last long. You should have seen the look I got. I said the latest data out of Israel says maybe 2 months of protection…the one said, ‘then what are we going to do??!’ I said, ‘get covid.’
It’s so sad people are so deluded into thinking if they keep getting boosted, they’ll never get the virus. And in reality could be more susceptible to infection. But then these are the same people that claim Covid was undercounted and it’s a pandemic of the unvaccinated. Madness.
Kevin. Have they said what the long term strategy is? I have friends on 4th booster. That’s 5 shots in little over a year. These folks will happily get a 5th booster. Is this going to go on forever, end when Covid reaches some point deemed significant by our health “experts,” etc. or have they really not explained? Thanks.
I don’t have a perception that there is a long-term strategy. the drug companies will obviously push them forever, but it is hard to justify given the low value
I remember reading years ago about someone who worked with mosquitoes. The welt and itch you get from the mosquito bite is an immune response to the mosquito saliva. We all know it is pretty strong and long lasting – induced as a child, you still get the response at advanced age. But this guy had been bitten so many times his immune system had given up – he no longer got a welt and itch when the mosquitoes bit him.
A friend of mine had 4 shots and got covid about a month after the last one. She had only minor symptoms but made the mistake of going to her doctor who, because she is 65, gave her Paxlovid. After 5 days she tested negative but a couple of days later got sick again, symptoms still minor, but worse than the first time. Still sick after a week.
There are stories in the press now about the rebound after Paxlovid. What do you think?
It’s not a vaccine does not confer any immunity … never did … it’s a treatment that reduces severity of disease but since 75-90 of people infected by covid never get the disease it was almost useless …
You are not the only one questioning why the mRNA vaccines only target the spike protein. You also mention time pressures for the initial roll out. I assume a more robust vaccine would have taken longer to develop?
Thank you for continuing this series and for adding some climate “science” to the mix. It feels like a critical time for more people to do their own research on the subject.
It would have taken the same time regardless of what segments would targeted. So I don’t know why the designers only included spike.
“There is no reason to criticize the (mRNA) testing process given the situation with the epidemic. Speed was foremost.”
The ‘time frame’ was based on lies from the CCP and false modeling from the UK and other ‘academics’, not science or 100+ years of virology knowledge. Let’s stop making excuses and providing cover for egotistical maniacs and the Gate’s Foundation’s puppets. At the end of the day, we’d have a much healthier country and world if we’d followed traditional medical practices. It’s statistically a bad Flu, nothing more.
The current crop of hypocritical, criminal lunatics are hell bent on another Mao-style cultural revolution in our country. There can be ZERO excuses for any of them !
that was not accurate, the need for speed was real, if you have a pathogen infecting and killing large numbers of persons, you don’t want to sit around for three years developing a vaccine. We do the same thing with new flu variants.
