The current mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines may actually actually increase one’s likelihood of catching the Omicron variant of the virus, according to new peer-reviewed research from Great Britain.
The study, published in Science and covered by The Epoch Times, set out to answer why “countries with high vaccine uptake are experiencing substantial caseloads with breakthrough infection and frequent reinfection,” so the researchers studied the different types of antibodies in test subjects’ blood and observed how they affected their immune responses. They found that vaccine booster shots have different results depending on “different combinations of SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination.”
“Immune protection is boosted by B.1.1.529 (Omicron) infection in the triple-vaccinated, previously infection-naïve individuals, but this boosting is lost with prior Wuhan Hu-1 imprinting,” the study concluded. “This ‘hybrid immune damping’ indicates substantial subversion of immune recognition and differential modulation through immune imprinting and may be the reason why the B.1.1.529 (Omicron) wave has been characterized by breakthrough infection and frequent reinfection with relatively preserved protection against severe disease in triple-vaccinated individuals.”
“Initial doses of the vaccine brought about classic inflammatory immune responses,” The Epoch Times explained. “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 a few days. Your body is producing an inflammatory response to the COVID-19 proteins.”
‘But what happens in the body after you have had two vaccines and then you are given a third?” The Times continues. “The scientists found that successive doses of the mRNA vaccines start to habituate or desensitize the subjects to the COVID-19 proteins, migrating their immune response over to being dominated by the IgG4 form, which essentially teaches the body to tolerate the proteins.”
The findings add to ongoing efforts to make sense out of why COVID persists despite widespread dissemination of the vaccines, and the continued infections of multiple-jabbed public figures such as President Joe Biden.
Millions of people continue to doubt the safety, effectiveness, and necessity of the COVID shots, which were developed far more quickly than traditional vaccines under former President Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed initiative.
In March, it was found that 11,289 cases of pericarditis/myocarditis after COVID vaccination were reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) database between January 1 and February 25, which is already 47% of the 24,177 reports for the same submitted in all of 2021. An April study out of Israel indicates that COVID infection alone cannot account for such cases despite claims to the contrary.
COVID shot defenders claim that VAERS offers an exaggerated view of a vaccine’s potential risks, as anyone can submit a report without vetting it, but the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention researchers have acknowledged “high verification rate of reports of myocarditis to VAERS after mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccination,” leading to the conclusion that “under-reporting is more likely” than over-reporting.
But VAERS is not the only data source indicating cause for concern. LifeSiteNews has reported on the forced release of Pfizer data the company had tried to keep sealed until 2076, including reports of 158,893 serious adverse events after vaccination in dozens of countries around the world from December 1, 2020 to February 28, 2022.
Data from the Pentagon’s Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) has been similarly alarming, showing that 2021 saw drastic spikes in a variety of diagnoses for serious medical issues over the previous five-year average, including hypertension (2,181%), neurological disorders (1,048%), multiple sclerosis (680%), Guillain-Barre syndrome (551%), breast cancer, (487%), female infertility (472%), pulmonary embolism (468%), migraines (452%), ovarian dysfunction (437%), testicular cancer (369%), and tachycardia (302%).
