Mass Vaccination Delays Herd Immunity and Risks Greater Damage Unless a Sterilizing Vaccine Can Be Found

So this guy is unimpeachably a real expert, not just your average midwit health bureaucrat.

By Geert Vanden Bossche, who earned his PhD degree in Virology from the University of Hohenheim, Germany. More about him:

He has worked for several vaccine companies (GSK Biologicals, Novartis Vaccines, Solvay Biologicals) to serve various roles in vaccine R&D as well as in late vaccine development.

He also joined the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Global Health Discovery team in Seattle (USA) as Senior Program Officer before working with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) in Geneva as Senior Ebola Program Manager. At GAVI he tracked efforts to develop an Ebola vaccine. He also represented GAVI in fora with other partners, including WHO, to review progress on the fight against Ebola and to build plans for global pandemic preparedness.

He then joined the German Center for Infection Research in Cologne as Head of the Vaccine Development Office.

So this guy is unimpeachably a real expert, not just your average midwit health bureaucrat.

He had some interesting things to say in a statement yesterday (which we have excerpted, and translated somewhat from its formal and stilted language). The summary:

Mass vaccination in the middle of a pandemic is prone to promoting selection and adaptation of immune escape variants that are featured by increasing infectiousness and resistance to [antibodies that are specific to covid’s distinctive spike], thereby diminishing protection in vaccinees and threatening the unvaccinated.

This already explains why the WHO’s mass vaccination program is not only unable to generate herd immunity but even leads to substantial erosion of the population’s immune protective capacity. … Every further increase in vaccine coverage rates will further contribute to forcing the virus into resistance to [spike-specific antibodies].

Increased viral infectivity, combined with evasion from antiviral immunity, will inevitably result in an additional toll taken on human health and human lives.

Immediate action needs, therefore, to be taken in order to dramatically reduce viral infectivity rates and to prevent selected immune escape variants from rapidly spreading through the entire population, whether vaccinated or not.

This first critical step can only be achieved by calling an immediate halt to the mass vaccination program and replacing it by widespread use of antiviral chemoprophylactics [such as ivermectin and HCQ] while dedicating massive public health resources to scaling early multidrug treaments of Covid-19 disease. …

Now for some details. Innate immunity, not spike-specific antibodies, is the key to long-term protection and building herd immunity — even though spike-specific antibodies bind to covid more readily:

Innate immunity critically contributes to protecting a population from Covid-19. This is why children and healthy people … are enjoying a significant degree of protection from Covid-19 disease. Natural, innate antibodies and natural killer cells can target non-mutable common structures in otherwise highly mutating viruses and hence, deal with all Sars-CoV-2 variants. However, as they merely serve a first line of immune defense and have relatively low affinity [for binding to the covid virus], they’re not armed well enough to deal with high concentrations of pathogens …

The modellers and vaccine makers are not taking this into account, which is why they are failing:

To my knowledge, none of the current mathematical models [take into account] the susceptibility of our innate immune defense to enhanced viral infectiousness. As this is a major prerequisite for understanding the selection and dominant propagation of increasingly infectious variants, … predictions from these modelling exercises have not become true. None of them have even come close to reality.

Failure to take into account the role of innate … multipathogen-specific [antibodies] and [natural killer] cells is the single most important explanation for why the mechanistics behind the increasing infectiousness of circulating viral variants and their rapidly advancing evasion from antiviral immunity have remained elusive.

Although multiple peer-reviewed publications have repeatedly highlighted the pivotal role of natural, multipathogen-specific antibodies in a myriad of natural immune defense mechanisms, the vast majority of vaccinologists, virologists and epidemiologists don’t seem to even be aware of the functional importance of these [antibodies].

Current vaccines increase spike-specific antibodies, but — by natural selection — are inevitably just leading to covid strains that evade them. Which is why the more generalist, innate immunity and multi-purpose antibodies are, in the long term, more important:

In parallel with universal vaccination, more infectious strains have rapidly expanded in prevalence. According to molecular epidemiologists, Sars-CoV-2 is now also rapidly evolving towards resistance to [spike-specific] Sars-CoV-2 [antibodies]. …

There can be no doubt that resistance to vaccinal [spike-specific antibodies] will be the endpoint of any mass vaccination program that uses modern vaccines during a pandemic of an acute self-limiting viral disease caused by a highly mutable virus. …

Contrary to live vaccines, vaccines produced by modern vaccine technologies fail to induce sterilizing immunity [that is, they do not kill the virus in you, but merely protect you from its worst consequences]. … As abundantly reported in the literature and social media, vaccinated subjects do not only spread Sars-CoV-2 variants but are now also increasingly developing symptomatic infections …

Mass vaccination is hazardous to the public in the long term:

It is critical to understand how mass vaccination is inevitably driving this pandemic of highly infectious antigenic variants into a direction that is very hazardous to public and global health. …

High vaccine coverage rates eventually turn populations [into] excellent breeding grounds for … vaccine-resistant variants. Even if the latter are not bred directly in the highly vaccinated population, they can readily use such a population as a convenient petri dish for their expansion in prevalence …

As the virus mutates to evade the spike-specific antibodies, vaccinated people will get sick and die more often. Meanwhile, the unvaccinated part of the population will get sick and die less often because it will contain fewer and fewer covid-susceptible people.

The presence of the spike-specific antibodies suppresses the innate immunity and the general-purpose antibodies. Oh dear.

The more young and healthy individuals are vaccinated, the larger the fraction of the population in which variant-nonspecific innate [antibodies] experience prolonged suppression by vaccinal [antibodies] and … the more likely naturally selected, more infectious variants will find a suitable breeding ground for their expansion, and the faster these more infectious variants will start to prevail. … As long as vaccine resistance does not occur, vaccinal [spike-specific antibodies] will bind to Sars-CoV-2 and hence, outcompete natural [antibodies] in vaccinees. …

Eventually the sickness and death rates in the vaccinated will exceed those of the unvaccinated:

It is reasonable to conclude that continued mass vaccination, together with the predominant circulation of more infectious variants (as facilitated by mass vaccination!), will inevitably lead to relatively higher morbidity and mortality rates in vaccinees than in the nonvaccinated. It also follows that the more the vulnerable, but unvaccinated, part of the population will adhere to rigorous infection prevention measures, the more the peak of morbidity and mortality will shift away from the unvaccinated to the vaccinated.

A better strategy (though perhaps not for financial fortunes of the pharmaceutical companies and their lobbyists):

  • Stop mass vaccination
  • Don’t proceed with updated vaccine shots
  • Roll out global antiviral chemoprophylaxis [e.g. ivermectin, HCQ] to diminish viral infectious pressure (this may need to also include relevant animal reservoirs!)
  • Until we have dramatically diminished the infectious viral pressure, global and stringent infection prevention measures are to be re-installed [i.e. border closures, quarantining, and lockdowns aimed at eradication]
  • Provide — at no cost — early multidrug treatment to all patients in need
  • Roll out campaigns to promote healthy diets and lifestyle
  • Implement all of the above to buy time for the development of a Universal Immunological Sterilizer that is capable of preventing or abrogating infection by any Sars-CoV-2 lineage [i.e. a real vaccine, that sterilizes us of covid instead of living with it and turning us into a Petri dish for mutation].

There can be no doubt that the toll taken on human lives, health and health care systems will be much higher if we allow NATURE to take care of our gigantic mistake.

Herd immunity, which is going to inevitably come from our innate immunity and general-purpose antibodies, is being delayed by spike-specific vaccines:

And even though [herd immunity] will finally be established, it may be much more fragile and heterogeneous for many years to come than the one that would have been established after a natural pandemic. This is because the [herd immunity] that puts an end to a pandemic of highly infectious Sars-CoV-2 variants will initially only rely on innate population-level immunity. …

[Herd immunity] could easily take half of a decade, especially in countries which have been combining heavy mass vaccination programs with stringent infection prevention measures.

Conclusions: Current vaccines are just making it worse…

There is no way the Sars-CoV-2 pandemic could be controlled by the current, imperfect C-19 vaccines.

Using imperfect vaccines to control a pandemic (of a highly mutable virus causing acute, self-limiting viral infection) will only increase the toll Nature will take on human health and lives in return for regranting a license to rebuild [herd immunity]. …

Nature will first reset the population’s immune status to that of a Sars-CoV-2 naïve population, i.e., similar to what it was at the outset of this pandemic. The difference being, however, that the immunologically Sars-CoV-2 naïve population will now have to deal with viral variants that have a much higher level of infectiousness than the original Wuhan strain. This represents a formidable challenge to our innate immune system …

Artificial (human) immune intervention in a Coronavirus (CoV) pandemic could rapidly and durably yield immune protection of vulnerable individuals if and only if sterilizing immunity is induced. This means that the immune response induced is targeted at eliminating virus-infected cells. …

None of the current C-19 vaccines induces sterilizing immunity. They must not be used during a pandemic for they will merely drive immune escape and erode both innate immunity (i.e., by breeding more infectious variants that exert enhanced infectious pressure, and thereby render younger age groups more susceptible to the disease) and acquired immunity (i.e., by driving viral resistance to [spike-specific antibodies]).

By “vaccine,” we normally mean a “sterilizing vaccine”:

To be sterilizing a vaccine must prevent infection. Since you never get infected, you never replicate the virus and thus do not shed it. If you do not shed it, the potential path of the viral life-cycle for that particular infection ends with you and thus you cannot pass on or cause a mutation. You are sterile against that disease; from the point of view of the virus you are a lifeless rock.

Among commonly-used sterilizing vaccines are MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), Varicella (chicken pox), OPV (oral polio) and others. The only time that such a vaccine fails is when you do not build immunity (such as due to immune compromise.) This is extremely rare and the protection from such vaccines tends to be either decades-long or lifetime. …

Natural infection with Covid-19 is sterilizing. …

But the covid vaccines to date are not sterilizing:

A vaccine that is not sterilizing permits the virus to infect you and replicate and as a result you can infect others. Technically it is not a vaccine at all (which by definition prevents infection); it is a prophylactic therapy.

Such a “vaccine” instead acts to reduce or eliminate symptomatic disease. You don’t know you’re sick and you don’t get sick. You don’t go to the hospital and you don’t die. Unfortunately since you don’t know you’re sick but are infected and the virus is both replicating in you and shedding you are more-likely to spread the infection to others. All of the current Covid jabs are in this category and so is, for that matter IPV (injected polio vaccine — the original Salk discovery) …

Jabbed people in fact not only get infected but spread the virus to others.

The problem with non-sterilizing vaccines is simply this: There is no safe means of mass-use of non-sterilizing vaccines so long as transmission within the community does or is likely to exist.

Ever. There are no exceptions.

This was known to public health officials and virologists seventy years ago and is why the United States used both IPV (injected polio vaccine) and OPV (oral polio vaccine) in sequence for polio until the 1990s. …

Had we done with polio what we’re doing now with Covid … it is very likely the virus would have mutated, escaped the vaccine and killed millions in America.

Every single so-called expert knows damn well why we didn’t do that with polio and how dangerous it is to attempt it. Indeed where polio still circulates but money is scarce they use OPV only (which is sterilizing) and accept the risk of the rare but possible active case it can cause for this exact reason. …

The future:

It was ridiculously and grossly negligent entering into the territory of depraved indifference to mass-vaccinate the population with non-sterilizing jabs. We knew very early on that eradicating Covid-19 was impossible; there are animal reservoirs, specifically felines (of all sorts), ferrets and likely others (now believed to include deer.) We have never eradicated rabies and never will for this reason; as long as there are animal reservoirs you cannot eradicate a virus as it always has a host and a means of transmission outside of human control. …

Eventually we are very likely to get a mutation that entirely evades the jabs. That mutation will be caused by those who are jabbed since they are the only ones placing such mutational pressure on the virus. An unvaccinated person who gets infected places no such mutational pressure on the virus where a vaccinated person not only does they provide the exact pathway that virologists use to intentionally select for more-transmissible, virile or both mutations — serial passage through cells that does not kill the host. …

The only means to combat a pathogen absent sterilizing vaccination is to hit infections early and hard with whatever you have for the purpose of reducing viral load so as to produce durable, sterilizing immunity via infection. If you reduce viral load you reduce both the risk of pathology seriously injuring or killing the infected person and also reduce the forward transmission rate … of said virus. …

What to do?

It’s too late now; we’re stuck with the stupid, particularly all the screaming harpies who went out and got jabbed despite being at very low risk of serious outcomes themselves, turning themselves into literal gain-of-function labs for the virus. …

By taking the jab and then getting infected anyway you have now not just become a potential mutational factory, you are one of the people causing what will ultimately become viral escape and the screwing of yourself and others. …

This, and only this, is why I will not consent to such a jab under any circumstances until and unless there is hard science showing that a sterilizing option exists. That one, assuming the risk profile is reasonable, is one I might consider. Said jab today does not exist anywhere in the United States and I’m unaware of any scientific work showing that any of the current jabs are sterilizing irrespective of where they are manufactured and sold.

When are our policy makers going to wake up to the possible dangers of their vaccine strategy, and switch to a strategy of anti-viral cocktails?

The vast majority of people, including our policy makers, have been assuming that the covid “vaccines” are like other vaccines and are thus sterilizing. Nope.

Only in the last two weeks has it even dawned on many that the vaccines do not stop you from getting covid, do not kill it, and do not stop you spreading it to others. They initially reduce the rates of infection, spread, and hospitalization, but at what long-term cost?

It would appear that it might be more responsible not to get a vaccine, because that way you won’t become one more human Petri dish to breed covid mutations.

UPDATE: Mass Vaccination Delays Herd Immunity and Risks Greater Damage, Unless a Sterilizing Vaccine Can Be Found

How many people would risk their career for what they believe in? Are you willing to state the truth, whatever the cost? Geert Vanden Bossche stood firm, warning about the risk of mass vaccination in a pandemic. Let us all learn what it means to be brave.

Over the past few months, Geert Vanden Bossche has been a consistent voice warning of the risks associated with mass vaccination in a pandemic situation. His international expertise in vaccine research and development makes his opinion one that should not be discounted even if counter to the general narrative. His focus will now turn to finding viable solutions as many parts of the world are still struggling under the impact of the pandemic. The increase in variants across the world highlights the relevance of more innovative solutions that can stop this devastating pandemic. 0:00 – Intro 02:00 – Start 03:13 – Perspective on Covid vaccines 04:40 – Concerns with mass vaccination 05:56 – Three missing discussions in the Covid pandemic 08:48 – Why the silence about your concerns? 11:50 – Any personal or employment risk for Geert? 14:50 – Why the different Covid vaccination outcomes in different countries? 17:46 – Interferon and delayed immunity in Covid 21:00 – Risks of sub-optimal antibody levels after first vaccination 27:15 – Covid predictions for high infectious pressure countries 28:36 – Geert is confident these breakthrough Covid infections will occur 34:06 – Future of the pandemic 36:34 – Has vaccination increased the risk for the younger? 39:00 – What can be done for the pandemic? 42:28 – Facing the pandemic through early Covid treatment 45:00 – Will Covid lockdowns still be a future regular occurrence? 51:05 – Why is Geert no longer going to share his Covid research? 57:05 – There is no scientific justification for mass vaccination Join us to learn more.
