Those in favor of mass forced vaccination have an amazing narrative, or at
least they think they do. They think that a bunch of "low vaccinated" areas are
getting hit strongly with the virus and that somehow this is "an epidemic of
But when you open your eyes a crack, you can see that almost every area of
America is relatively highly vaccinated for adults and especially seniors and
that the virus is bizarrely spreading uncontrollably out of season, even in
northern latitudes and even in areas with virtual universal adult vaccination.
In fact, what this phenomenon might point to is not only a complete lack of
power of vaccination to stop the spread, but also that it is serving as an
unnatural viral escape mechanism to create durable and prolific mutations that
would not have been created absent mass vaccination.
The truth about the southern states, seasonality, and vaccination rates
India had a low vaccination rate of 3% when cases began to plummet in
mid-spring, and indeed the country achieved close to de facto herd immunity
without the vaccine. On the other hand, no place in America truly has a low
vaccination rate. Even states like Arkansas have 85% of seniors with at least
one dose and 71% with two doses. It simply makes no sense that with the degree
of efficacy the "experts" ascribe to the vaccine, we would be witnessing this
amount of spread. What's more, Florida actually has a higher vaccination rate
than California among seniors and a pretty solid overall rate.
Yet cases are spreading in places like Florida quicker than they did a year ago
with much less immunity and 0% vaccinated last summer. There's no way the
unvaccinated alone could explain this phenomenon, because even if the vaccine
didn't exist today at all, we should be seeing less, not more spread, than last
year, simply based on built-up immunity. Thus, this indicates something of a
negative effect of the vaccine.
Obviously, we all expected to experience a summer uptick in the South because,
as we saw last year, southern latitudes tend to get a wave in the hot months of
the year, known as the "Hope-Simpson curve." However, this degree of spread
makes no sense. Moreover, unlike last year, when the virus was essentially dead
north of the 35th parallel in the summer, cases are spreading much more,
despite extremely high rates of vaccination. Cases in New York and New Jersey
are running four to five times higher than this week last year. San Francisco,
with most adults vaccinated (and masked), is experiencing its greatest spread
yet — all out of season.
We can only imagine what these northern latitudes will experience in season,
with the vaccination rates having a negative effect on the case rate.
Wherever one stands on the vaccine, the case explosion makes no sense. There
are twice as many cases in the U.S. this week than this time last year, without
any vaccine and with nearly half the country already immune. There is simply no
way the unvaccinated could account for this degree of spread, because last year
everyone was unvaccinated (plus fewer with natural immunity), yet we are seeing
both greater numbers and off-season spread in climates that should not be
getting a summer spread. For example, Oregon has nearly five times the number
of cases over last year with very high vaccination rates.
Mass-vaccinated countries getting slammed with prolific spread
Our observations in America are accentuated in other countries, where entire
populations are fully vaccinated. The entire adult population of Gibraltar is
vaccinated, yet the country has one of the highest case per capita rates and
the fifth-highest death rate. Israel was the poster child for successful
vaccination, after draconian lockdowns and mask mandates, yet 17 months into
this, the Israelis have double the case rate of this time last year. Then we
are also seeing even northern climates get an out-of-season spread, like the
U.K. last month and Iceland at present. Iceland's cases have gone up
exponentially despite near-universal adult vaccination. Iceland has never seen
any spread like this during the entire epidemic. How can it be that the worst
spread is taking place after near-universal adult vaccination?
Everyone is quick to point out that most of these places, Iceland included, are
not experiencing deaths, which they credit to the vaccines rather than the
virus becoming less deadly (as we saw in India with a low vaccination rate).
They claim the vaccine ameliorates symptoms. That may very well be true – at
least temporarily, before it wears off, as we are seeing in Israel – but
clearly it is not doing one iota to stop the spread, and clearly the vaccinated
are spreading the virus just as prolifically as the non-vaccinated. Unlike in
America, some of these other countries (or places like San Francisco) are
almost exclusively composed of vaccinated adults.
And let's not forget that in March, April, and May, when the South was
completely clear, the Northeast and upper Midwest – with their impervious
restrictions and mask mandates in place, along with already high vaccination
rates – had high case counts.
Thus, we've never seen any correlation of the vaccines with better outcomes on
a macro level.
So why are cases worse than ever before?
There is no scientifically proven answer to this, but we should find out soon
enough. With strong evidence from two Israeli studies that the efficacy of the
vaccines even against severe illness wanes after about five months,
particularly for the people who need it the most, and Fauci downright admitting
they won't work against some variants, perhaps it's time to study Dr. Geert
Vanden Bossche's concern that we are making things worse.
Bossche, a former top vaccinologist at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,
clearly not an anti-vaxxer, has been frantically warning that mass vaccination
(especially with a narrow spike protein vaccine) during the middle of a
pandemic is unprecedented and comes with a degree of risk. He warns that weak
and waning antibodies from the vaccine can create a natural selection for the
virus to mutate around and induce a vicious cycle of endless strengthening of
the virus, at least quantitatively if not qualitatively. This is the exact
opposite of what Fauci is saying – that somehow more mass vaccination equals
less viral immune escape.
Here is a small synopsis of Dr. Bossche's warning from March, when there was
little evidence to support his concern:
Why is nobody worried about "immune escape" whereas Covid-19 has already
escaped people's innate immunity as reflected by multiple emerging, much more
infectious, viral variants (most likely due to the global implementation of
infection prevention measures)? Vaccine deployment in the ongoing mass
immunization campaigns are highly likely to further enhance (adaptive) immune
escape as none of the current vaccines will prevent replication/ transmission
of viral variants. The more we use these vaccines for immunizing people in the
midst of a pandemic, the more infectious the virus will become. With increasing
infectiousness comes an increased likelihood of viral resistance to the
vaccines. It's not exactly rocket science, it's a basic principle taught in a
student's first vaccinology class: One shouldn't use a prophylactic vaccine in
populations exposed to high infectious pressure (which is now certainly the
case as multiple highly infectious variants are currently circulating in many
parts of the world). To fully escape selective immune pressure exerted by
vaccinal antibodies, Covid-19, a highly mutable virus, only needs to add
another few mutations in its receptor-binding domain ...
I am beyond worried about the disastrous impact this would have on our human
"race". Not only would people lose vaccine-mediated protection but also their
precious, variant-nonspecific (!), innate immunity will be gone (this is
because vaccinal antibodies outcompete natural antibodies for binding to
Covid-19, even when their affinity for the viral variant is relatively low).
Fast-forward five months, and Moderna has already warned everyone will need a
third dose, something that is already under way in Israel. But this is akin to
giving last year's flu shot to this year's strain. We will continue chasing our
tails. Rather than achieving natural immunity, which is much broader and
longer-lasting – and using cheap medicines to get people through the virus
safely – we will continue to make the virus worse in the long run while
continuously offering shorter-term protection for those vaccinated themselves.
Israel is already seeing hospitalization from the brand-new third injection!

Iceland's Chief Epidemiologist Þórólfur Guðnason appears to finally understand
the failures of the past and the only way forward. When I point to Iceland's
unprecedented spread post-universal vaccination, opponents are quick to point
out the country's terrific record on preventing deaths. However,
notwithstanding the fact that (for whatever reason) Icelandic people appeared
to do better with this virus even before the vaccine, their chief
epidemiologist clearly understands that 0% efficacy for cases is an obvious
harbinger of waning efficacy against critical illness in the future. Which is
why in a recent interview he lamented that vaccination failed to achieve herd
immunity and conceded that nothing we do, short of focusing on those
vulnerable, will stop the natural progression toward herd immunity, whether we
like it or not.
