The new, heavily promoted mRNA booster shots from Pfizer and Moderna are not all they’re cracked up to be, according to two new preprint studies.
The boosters perform no better against Omicron than the fourth jab with the original formulation,” a new study from scientists at Columbia University in New York City found. The updated Covid-19 booster shots have been advertised as “bivalent,” meaning they target the original coronavirus strain as well as the Omicron BA.4/BA.5 subvariants.
However, the Columbia paper found that the newer Omicron variants easily evade both types of boosters, Alex Berenson reported on Substack.
The report strongly suggests anyone who received mRNA shots should hope the next Sars-Cov-2 variants remain mild as the current Omicron variants, because those folks will have very little protection from future Sars-Cov-2 variants going forward.
In other words: immune imprinting and original mRNA vaccine antigenic sin are real, and they’re spectacular (spectacularly bad).
About the only good news in the study actually comes from vaccine failure. People who had three shots and then were infected with Omicron had markedly higher antibody levels than people who received either booster.
The boosters were reportedly authorized for human use based on data from eight baby mice.
The Columbia scientists acknowledged that their findings “may be indicative of immunological imprinting”—also known as original antigenic sin—a phenomenon in which an initial exposure to a virus by infection or vaccination limits a person’s future immune response against new variants.
Dr. David Ho, one of the world’s top virologists, released the paper on Monday.
Another study released by scientists at Harvard University on Monday came to essentially the same conclusion.
“Waning immunity following mRNA vaccination and the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 variants has led to reduced mRNA vaccine efficacy against both symptomatic infection and
severe disease,” the Harvard scientists concluded.
Dissident doctors and scientists like Drs. Robert Malone, Peter McCullough, Ryan Cole, and Michael Yeadon have been warning of this for over a year, and now other medical scientists who aren’t totally captured by Big Pharma appear to be catching up.
These findings come amid the Biden regime’s aggressive nationwide campaign to get the updated COVID boosters in American arms.
“We have to be careful when we get in front of the American public and try and sell this vaccine as something that’s significantly better when all the evidence we have so far doesn’t support that,” said Dr. Paul Offit, a member of the FDA’s independent vaccine advisory committee.
Joe Biden received his fifth COVID-19 shot on Tuesday, and warned Americans that the virus was still a threat, even though he declared that the pandemic was “over” just last month.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, who received the Covid-19 booster in September, meanwhile, is the latest Biden official to test positive for Covid-19.
Walensky is experiencing mild symptoms, according to a statement released by the CDC on Friday.
“Consistent with CDC guidelines, she is isolating at home and will participate in her planned meetings virtually,” the agency said. “CDC senior staff and close contacts have been informed of her positive test and are taking appropriate action to monitor their health.”
Joe Biden, Jill Biden, NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Attorney General Merrick Garland, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Pfizer Inc. Chief Executive Officer Albert Bourla, as well as press aides Jen Psaki and Karine Jean-Pierre, have all tested positive for COVID at least once—in some cases twice— this year.
As of October 25, fewer than 20 million Americans—just 8.5 percent of those who are eligible— have reportedly gotten the new booster since it became available in early September.
