New Science Shows Vaccines Help Spread Omicron: Peer-Reviewed Study

A team of 19 scientists from the United Kingdom has published new research that helps explain why countries with the highest vaccination rates are experiencing the highest numbers of what they call “advanced infections” as well as reinfection with variants others of COVID-19.

This research article, published on June 14, 2022 in the peer-reviewed journal Science, has been downloaded nearly 277,500 times in less than two months. This is very unusual for a densely worded highly technical scientific study.

We can only speculate as to why so many people read it. But what this study suggests—which many clinicians and research scientists have expressed concern about—is that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines as well as booster vaccines may be making our immune response less effective against the Omicron variant of the virus.

If this is correct, it means that the vaccine itself is leading to widespread infection. Rather than stopping the virus, it appears that mRNA vaccination programs around the world may have inadvertently made the virus more widespread.

Higher vaccine uptake leads to higher infection rates

As the British scientists point out, countries with higher vaccination rates are experiencing high numbers of primary infections and frequent re-infections with SARS-CoV-2.

In contrast, in countries where vaccine campaigns have not been widely implemented – including most countries on the African continent – people are not getting infected.

In analyzing why more vaccinated populations are getting more Omicron infections, this study focused on the most vaccinated professionals: medical personnel who had been given two doses of mRNA vaccines early on and then given two more booster shots. To find out what was happening on a cellular level with these heavily vaccinated health care workers, the scientists closely followed the different types of immunoglobin in the participants’ blood.

Immunoglobin (Ig), also known as antibody (Ab), finds viruses, bacteria, and the like and prompts the immune system to respond appropriately.

Scientists have identified several types of immunoglobulins, each of which directs the immune response in a different way for different stages and types of infection.

IgG4, an immune response to tolerance

IgG4 is the form of immunoglobulin that activates a tolerance response in the immune system, for things you have been repeatedly exposed to and don’t need to mount an inflammatory response. This is good if you are trying to avoid an immune sensitivity to a food, for example. But it’s not the type of immune response that the COVID-19 vaccines were designed for.

Beekeepers, when repeatedly stung by bees throughout their careers, mount an IgG4 response to the attack on their immune system. Basically, their bodies learn that the bee venom is not dangerous and their immune response to the bee venom becomes an IgG4 response, so they are able to tolerate the stings very well. While the bee venom itself will not harm the body, the body’s inflammatory response can be dangerous. If the body reacts and develops a generalized response in which the inflammation itself endangers a person’s breathing, the immune response can be deadly.

More vaccines lead to more COVID-19 infections

This study shows exactly how repeated vaccinations are making people more susceptible to COVID-19. Initial doses of the vaccine elicited classic inflammatory immune responses. Inflammation is a fundamental part of an immune response (to a vaccine or to an infection) and is responsible for most of what you feel when you are sick: fever, aches, lethargy, etc. This inflammation is why you may feel sick if you get a flu shot and why the COVID-19 vaccine has become famous for making people feel so sick for days. Your body is producing an inflammatory response to the COVID-19 proteins.

But what happens in the body after you’ve had two vaccines and then you’re given a third? The scientists found that successive doses of mRNA vaccines begin to express or desensitize subjects to the COVID-19 proteins, migrating their immune response toward dominance by the IgG4 form, which essentially teaches the body to tolerate the proteins.

Another kind of protection?

The participants’ response to COVID-19 was actually turned off, making them even more vulnerable to the infection and less likely to mount a response to it than those who had never been vaccinated.

When you’re exposed to a cold or any other virus repeatedly, spaced out over a lifetime, which is what happens with natural exposure, you don’t develop a tolerance to it, your body fights it off without you knowing. Your body is using the normal immune response that fights the disease, but because it recognizes the infectious agent, you have no symptoms of inflammation. This is why when you are naturally exposed to many diseases, then you have lifelong immunity.

In contrast, this new study shows that repeated injections of mRNA and enhancers for COVID-19 are producing a tolerance response, as if they were allergy shots. They are training the body with the virus so that it no longer recognizes it as something dangerous.

Another study, published in July by a team of more than 20 German scientists, independently confirmed that successive injections and boosters of COVID-19 were converting the immune response from the protective class of IgG response to the tolerance class.

At the same time, the creation of this vaccine-induced tolerance did not mean that the subjects were left vulnerable.

Keeping people sick

So the vaccine program and boosters have ended up doing the opposite of what it was intended to do: keeping people from getting sick.

But was this ever a realistic goal? COVID-19 is like related endemic coronaviruses. Like the common cold, it appears that SARS-CoV-2 is not going away, that no one can avoid it indefinitely, and that it will continue to change.

On the one hand, this study suggests that vaccines are helping the body’s immune system not overreact to the virus. The virus itself wasn’t killing people—it was the interaction of the virus with the patients’ immune systems that caused severe and sometimes fatal infections, as the immune system overreacted to a new virus.

On the other hand, naturally acquired immunity appears to be stronger than vaccine-acquired immunity, and the risks of the vaccines themselves, especially for young people, suggest that the risks of vaccination far outweigh the benefits.

If the vaccinated are now easily getting the virus but only having mild reactions because their immune systems are telling them to tolerate it, this may have been a benefit to the vaccination.

But booster injections were never necessary to produce tolerance: the study showed that subjects began to develop tolerance after just two doses. Vaccines may have helped desensitize the population to harmful inflammatory immune responses to COVID-19. They have played their part. There is no need to continue with successive boosters.
