Mostly because they get a lot of attention from a vocal crowd of conspiracy theorists on social media, there are a group of people who promote themselves as experts on the CV-19 vax, and who constantly make up crap about the supposed evil effects of those vaccines, like excess deaths and serious illness. Nothwithstanding the fact that there is no research to support these claims, they keep pushing them because they love the attention and in some cases for financial reasons, like those of Dr. Malone, who is literally selling a supposed detox snake oil, and Alex Berenson, who makes millions from sensationalized posts that people subscribe to and from books. Let me put the following in all caps:
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE FROM ANY STUDY USING THE BEST DATA SOURCES–LARGE HEALTH CLAIMS AND ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS DATABASES–THAT RECEIVING THE CV-19 VAX HAD ANY SIGNIFICANT EFFECT ON MORBIDITY, MORTALITY OR ANYTHING ELSE. NONE. NONE. NONE.
Other than a temporary effect of lowering infection and serious disease risk from CV-19 itself. But the VSNs ignore that. So here is the latest fear-mongering. They are taking a pretty vanilla study looking at persistence of spike protein following vaccination and trying to say it means the vax cause that protein to stay in the body forever and do all kinds of harm. And of course none of that is true. Here is what the study actually says, and as usual, I encourage you to go actually read it yourself and draw your own conclusions.
1. The study group was very small, only 20 vaccinated persons. This is a very short writeup, which largely focuses on the method.
2. The authors claim that spike protein from the vaccines can be distinguished from that off circulating CV-19 viruses. Let’s assume it is true.
3. In 50% of the vaxed persons, a whopping sample of 10, the putative vax spike protein was detected. It was completely gone within 69 days at a minimum, or at least below the level of detection of the authors’ supposedly super-sensitive equipment, and the longest time it was detectable was 187 days.
4. By definition, the levels detected were constantly declining and at extremely low levels within a short time. While they say in one place that multiple fluid and tissue types were tested, there was no data given on where the vax spike protein was found in those tested and other information in the writeup makes it sound like it was just blood samples. In fact, there were no tables or charts of any of the actual testing results by subject or across the groups of subjects. We get no information on the range of amounts detected, the decay of those amounts over time, the variation in amount and time to decay across subjects. None of that was presented.
5. There is absolutely zero evidence for, and the authors did not look for, any clinical consequences of finding spike protein supposedly from the vax for some months after vaccination. This was a health worker population which was presumably all healthy volunteers for the study, so unlikely they had any clinical ramifications from the presence of spike protein.
Given the small study size, the lack of data presented to really understand the results and the complete lack of any clinical consequence, at a minimum no one should even be talking about this until it is replicated in far larger studies, and there is a complete analysis of whether there are clinical ramifications. So even if the results as described are accurate, they mean absolutely nothing in terms of people’s health. (Proteomics Article)
