If you don’t want to read my whole diatribe, here are the facts you need to know (caps always mine for emphasis): “Compared to previously infected individuals, those who acquired immunity by vaccination had a nearly 13-FOLD INCREASED RISK for a breakthrough infection, a 27-FOLD INCREASED RISK for symptomatic disease (chiefly fever, cough, breathing difficulties, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, myalgia, weakness, headache and sore throat), and were MORE LIKELY to be hospitalized.”
So for those of you still with me, in case you haven’t been paying attention this year, you’re supposed to get vaccinated against the coronavirus. Yeah really, that’s a thing. You haven’t heard? We were told back in January that the vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) were somewhere around 95% “effective” at protecting you from serious interaction with COVID. It doesn’t really matter that for most Americans under the age of say, 65, the threat to you from the coronavirus was essentially zero to begin with, and the reason you’ve been told to get the jab is not only to protect yourself but to “protect others, although that doesn’t really seem to be relevant anymore now that we know the fully vaccinated can get infected and spread the virus with the best of ‘em (hence why the vaxxed have to wear masks like the rest of the unwashed masses), just shut up and get the shot. The vaccine does, in fact, seem to offer protection against serious illness or death, so if you have not been infected (or even if you have been) and want to get vaccinated, go right ahead. Nobody is trying to stop you. I couldn't care less if you're vaccinated. It's really none of my damn business (or anybody else's for that matter). My purpose here, as always, is not to dissuade you from getting vaccinated or wearing a mask or washing your mail, it is hopefully to pull some of you back in off the ledge because you have been sucked into the mass psychosis that has become COVID-19, which has been created by an onslaught of PANIC PORN that has grossly exaggerated what’s actually going on here. Having said that, I would think long and hard before I got jabbed (or got my kid jabbed) if I was planning on someday having kids or grandkids. Because, unknowable long term consequences and all that sort of thing. Pish-posh, what’s the worst that could happen? The same people who told us how "safe and effective" it was are now saying, "OK, maybe not as effective as we said, but still safe, definitely safe. Even though we can't find 1.21 gigawatts for our DeLorean to go into the future and see what we cannot possibly see now, it's definitely safe. Yeah, that's the ticket." (rare double shout out to Back to the Future and John Lovitz)
Anyway, just as with "safe and effective", the interesting thing here is how much we were told we KNEW that the vaccine was BETTER than the natural immunity someone would obtain through getting infected with coronavirus itself. Now this was something new, in that natural immunity was always understood to be superior (or at the very least, equal) to vaccination. But apparently not with this virus, for which we coincidentally have a brand new “vaccine” worth billions of dollars. You may remember the dust-up when the WHO removed the concept of "previous infection" from their definition of herd immunity, leaving only "vaccination" as the way to salvation. All you’ve heard is “experts” and talking heads of all varieties telling you it was imperative to get vaccinated, even if you’ve already been infected. And no, your silly proof of previous infection will not get you into a movie theater or college (although you would still have to “show your papers” which is still a problem) – GET VAXXED!! There have been a few voices in the wilderness saying you don't need vaccination if you've been infected; that this was not necessary, and quite possibly a bad idea, but those people have largely been banished to the hinterlands pretty quickly. After all, you have the Grand Kleagle of Liars and Obfuscators, I mean the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, being worshipped with such fervor and commitment as to cause the vomiting out of statements like “Dr. Anthony Fauci is calling it: mRNA COVID-19 vaccines can provide people with BETTER PROTECTION against new viral variants than a prior coronavirus infection alone can.” And “Vaccines are highly efficacious," Fauci concluded. "THEY ARE BETTER THAN the traditional response you get from natural infection." Alright then, the little fella with the giant head who skulks around the basement halls of government buildings asking passersby “What’s its gots in its pocketses?” (shout out The Hobbit) has spoken. Roll up your sleeve.
But now we have some pretty solid actual SCIENCE AND DATA out of Israel showing “The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers CONSIDERABLY MORE of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine,” This in “…the LARGEST REAL-WORLD observational study so far to compare natural and vaccine-induced immunity to SARS-CoV-2…” “This analysis demonstrated that NATURAL IMMUNITY affords LONGER LASTING AND STRONGER PROTECTION against INFECTION, SYMPTOMATIC DISEASE and HOSPITALIZATION due to the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 two-dose vaccine-induced immunity.” And “It’s a textbook example of how NATURAL IMMUNITY IS REALLY BETTER THAN VACCINATION,”
Well, whadayaknow? This is, in fact, not the only study to show these results and this has been the understanding of natural immunity vs. vaccine-mediated immunity forever. Even the CDC states on their very own website, under the heading “Who Needs Chickenpox Vaccine” “People 13 years of age and older who have NEVER HAD CHICKENPOX…” and then under “Who Should NOT GET Chickenpox Vaccine” “You DO NOT NEED to get the chickenpox vaccine if you have evidence of immunity against the disease.” When you click on “evidence of immunity” one of the proofs of immunity listed is “Laboratory evidence of immunity or laboratory confirmation of disease.” As Dr. Marty Makary from Johns Hopkins would say “It’s the same immune system.” So why all of a sudden with THIS virus is natural immunity no good? Why must we ALL get vaccinated, irrespective of our previous infection status? Oh well, moving on…
Here’s a quick and dirty primer on why this vaccine in particular cannot be as good as obtaining natural immunity through infection. In this story, the part of the coronavirus will be played by an egg. Let’s say we know that everyone is susceptible to getting sick from eating an egg. For our purposes I am referring to the whole egg – shell, white, and yolk. You swallow a whole egg; you have now been exposed to our “germ” and you may or may not actually get sick, but you have now, nevertheless been exposed and therefore your innate (inborn, natural, God-given, whatever floats your boat) immune system swings into action and creates an immune response to the egg…the WHOLE EGG, shell, white, and yoke. Now along comes a little man muttering something about “My Precious” (shout out The Hobbit again) holding a syringe telling you the magic in the tube, the “vaccine” will protect you better than your own body could every dream of doing. The problem here is the vaccine is just ground up egg shells. Forgoing the skepticism of actually injecting ground up eggshells through a needle into your arm, in our story it can actually be done (C’mon man, suspend disbelief!). And as the body is wont to do, it recognizes this injected eggshell as an invader and creates an immune response to same. The problem here is, your body is making an immune response to the shell of the egg only, whereas through natural infection your body creates an immune response to the whole egg. So through natural immunity the next time your body sees an egg, even if the shell is a different color, the body recognizes other parts of the egg as bad and swings into action. But through vaccine immunity, if the eggshell is a different color, the body may not recognize it and won’t fire up the troops to protect you. Got it? Good.
What’s really interesting is how this data is being reported. Basically it’s something like “Yeah, the actual data show a significant superiority for natural immunity through infection…but get vaccinated anyway!!” I made that quote up but that’s essentially how it’s being reported. Our friends in the mainstream media really try to minimize the benefits of natural immunity (which probably somewhere around 150 million Americans already have) and scare you with what “might” happen if you get infected, because touting natural immunity “doesn’t take into account what this virus DOES TO THE BODY to get to that point,” and so the vaccine is much safer because if you get infected “…someone could DIE.” Or “Although reinfections with SARS-CoV-2 are rare, and often asymptomatic or mild, they CAN BE SEVERE.” Of course that is not true for well more than 99.7% of Americans after a year and a half of COVID, but whatever.
What’s even more interesting is how the media report that “In another analysis, the researchers compared more than 14,000 people who had a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection and were still unvaccinated with an equivalent number of previously infected people who received ONE DOSE of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The team found that the unvaccinated group was TWICE AS LIKELY to be reinfected as the singly vaccinated.” And “The good news is that those who were previously infected and received a SINGLE DOSE of the Pfizer serum…had the BEST IMMUNITY out of all three groups.” Or “The researchers also found that people who had SARS-CoV-2 previously and received one dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine were MORE HIGHLY PROTECTED against reinfection than those who once had the virus and were still unvaccinated.” So you should still get at least one shot (we got warehouses full of this stuff and operators are standing by)!! You will see this professed everywhere you read about this study. Even if you’ve been previously infected, you should still get AT LEAST ONE SHOT!
Just one thing. That’s not really true. From the actual publication entitled “Comparing SARS-CoV-2 natural immunity to vaccine-induced immunity: reinfections versus breakthrough infections” (yeah, I read it) “We conducted a further sub-analysis, compelling the single-dose vaccine to be administered AFTER the positive RT-PCR test. This subset REPRESENTED 81% OF THE PREVIOUSLY-INFECTED-AND-VACCINATED STUDY GROUP. When performing this analysis, we found a similar, though NOT SIGNIFICANT, trend of decreased risk of reinfection…” and “Individuals who were previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 SEEM to gain additional protection from a subsequent single-dose vaccine regimen. Though this finding corresponds to previous reports, we COULD NOT DEMONSTRATE SIGNIFICANCE in our cohort.” So when looking at those who had been infected, and then took one dose of vaccine, the differences compared to those previously infected but not vaccinated at all was really minor. Meaning the “one shot” that the media tells you really adds value didn’t really do so. Does that sound the same as what the mainstream media is telling you? I say nay-nay. (shout out John Pinette)
By the way, going back to the initial quote at the top of this post, the numbers for “MORE LIKELY to be hospitalized” show that (again from the actual paper) “COVID-19 related hospitalizations occurred in 4 and 21 of the reinfection and breakthrough infection groups, respectively.” That means that 84% of hospitalizations occurred in the fully vaccinated vs. the previously infected but unvaccinated, who only accounted for 16% of hospitalizations. Why report it as “MORE LIKELY”? Why not state the actual number? Haven’t we been told repeatedly that the vaccine will keep you out of the hospital? Maybe I’m just a conspiracy nut, but if you read the mainstream media reports, and then read the actual paper, seems like a whole lotta whitewashing going on. But maybe the earth really is flat, too…
So what’s the point? Well first, maybe we should stop worshipping the golden idol of the syringe and stop genuflecting at the altar of “medicine” (shout out Dr. Robert Mendelsohn), and start remembering that the human body is pretty damn good at defending itself (even if it’s just “relatively” healthy). And maybe we should start stressing the importance of eating real food instead of garbage, exercising instead of Netflix binging, getting outside in the sun, and re-engaging in human interaction to find our way back to real health.
But the real point of this post is to show you once again that we are being lied to every day. The stories you will read or see or hear about this study (if you see them at all) will minimize the effects of natural immunity, will scare you into getting a vaccine you may not really need, will exaggerate the actual risk of contracting the coronavirus for almost everyone, will minimize the poorer performance of the vaccine compared to natural immunity, and will flat out misrepresent the data all in pursuit of getting you to get the shot. Pretty much everything most people think they know about coronavirus from how “dangerous” it is, or how “well” masks work, or the evil “variants” or how important vaccination is, or how this is now only a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” is predicated on half-truths, outright lies, and plain old fashioned incompetence and hysteria. I implore you once again, stop listening to the “experts” and talking heads. They do not have our best interests at heart.
