A new study published on medRxiv.org that covered more than 800,000 people split into three groups, shows that fully vaccinated individuals may be at greater risk of COVID than those unvaccinated.
According to the massive study, people who have taken both doses of the Pfizer jab are 13 times more likely to have a breakthrough infection and are even at a vastly greater risk for Covid-19 hospitalizations.
Vaccinated individuals were found to have a 27 times higher risk of symptomatic COVID infection compared to those with natural immunity from prior COVID disease.
“SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees had a 13.06-fold (95% CI, 8.08 to 21.11) increased risk for breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to those previously infected when the first event (infection or vaccination) occurred during January and February of 2021. The increased risk was significant (P<0.001) for symptomatic disease as well.“
“After adjusting for comorbidities, we found a 27.02-fold risk (95% CI, 12.7 to 57.5) for symptomatic breakthrough infection as opposed to symptomatic reinfection (P<0.001) (Table 2b). None of the covariates were significant, except for age ≥60 years.”
Harvard Medical School professor Martin Kulldorff said research showing that natural immunity offers exponentially more protection than vaccines means vaccine passports are both unscientific and discriminatory since they disproportionately affect working-class individuals.
“Prior COVID disease (many working-class) provides better immunity than vaccines (many professionals), so vaccine mandates are not only scientific nonsense, they are also discriminatory and unethical,” Kulldorff, a biostatistician, and epidemiologist, observed on Twitter.
For most viruses, it is generally the scientific consensus that natural infection provides a better and more robust immunity than vaccines are able to. One of the very few viruses where we know this is not the case is the Human papillomavirus infection or HPV.
Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis also reported last month that 11 months after a mild infection immune cells were still capable of producing protective antibodies. The authors concluded that prior Covid infection induces a “robust” and “long-lived humoral immune response,” leading some scientists to suggest that natural immunity is probably lifelong.
Another recent study found that the current vaccines do next to nothing to help the body’s CD8 T-cells, which is the key to long-term immunity.
Israel National News previously reported that those who already had the virus at some point throughout the past year were 7 times more immune to Israel’s recent outbreak than those who have been fully vaccinated.
Israel has among the world’s highest levels of vaccination for COVID-19, with 80% of those 12 and older fully vaccinated, the vast majority with the Pfizer vaccine. Yet the country is now recording one of the world’s highest infection rates, and Americans aren’t allowed to travel there.
More than half of the cases in Israel, and over 60% of the hospitalizations for severe COVID cases are in fully vaccinated people.
According to a recent article published by NBC News, Israel now says the Pfizer vaccines – which were just fully approved by the FDA – are down to only 39% efficacy and falling. In nations that vaccinated a larger percentage of their population and much quicker than the United States, they are seeing no sign of the vaccines preventing even severe illness or death.
The nation of Gibraltar, which achieved a 99% vaccine compliance rate as of June 1, is now seeing an astounding 2500 percent rise in cases, and a surge in hospitalizations and deaths. Meanwhile in the UK about half of their COVID cases, deaths, and hospitalizations are in fully vaccinated people.
In England and throughout the UK, cases, deaths, and hospitalizations are surging more among the fully vaccinated than the unvaccinated.
In Israel, England, Scotland, and several other countries, statistics on hospitalizations and deaths have three categories – “fully” vaccinated, “partially” vaccinated, and “unvaccinated.”
In all three countries, hospitalizations and deaths have risen since May – and vaccinated people have accounted for more than 50% of the cases, hospitalizations, and in some cases of the deaths recently. Israel only used the Pfizer vaccine, and the United Kingdom used a mix. When broken down by different vaccines, the same results are found.
Because of the plummetting efficacy of the vaccines, many countries are already discussing the coming booster shots, and how governments will move forward in requiring them to work, go to school, and shop.
The United States is beginning to see the efficacy of the vaccines completely fail, and the current administration now says that boosters will soon be required every 6 months instead of 8 months.
About 75% of people new cases identified in a recent Massachusetts outbreak were fully vaccinated against the coronavirus and in Clark County, NV, (Las Vegas) over 60% of deaths are now reportedly in fully vaccinated individuals.
According to another recent report from California, several counties with above-average vaccination rates now have higher COVID case rates, while case rates are falling in counties with below-average vaccination rates.
But the US has a data problem. According to a recent report from ProPublica, the CDC Only Tracks a Fraction of Breakthrough COVID-19 Infections and decided in May that they would stop comprehensively tracking breakthrough infection right before cases surged.
Some individual states do keep data on breakthrough infections, but the data is unorganized and limited. Even among states that track cases closely, officials caution that the data is incomplete because vaccinated people who are infected and asymptomatic are likely largely missing from statistics.
