The inactivated or killed vaccines contain the whole virus but in a dead/inactive form. This inactivation is done using a chemical like formaldehyde. Shedding is not a problem with this type of vaccine since the virus is dead, but the vaccine does not elict such a strong protective immune response. In fact, vaccine failure can often result. Vaccine failure means that the vaccine does not work at all in a substantial percentage of injected recipients. Examples of this type of vaccine are hepatitis A, influenza (intramuscular), polio (injected), rabies, typhoid, and cholera.
The subunit vaccines contain pieces of the virus as markers to elicit a protective immune response. These markers are called antigens and consist of proteins or glycoproteins (sugars which are attached to a protein) unique to the virus. A few of these vaccines use molecules the virus produces and secretes. This smaller set of vaccines is called toxoid vaccines. Subunit vaccines produce the weakest immune repsonse of all and require the addition of adjuvants like heavy metals (aluminum) to antagonize the immune system and create a more severe reaction. Examples of this type of vaccine are Hib (haemophilus influenza type b), Hepatitis B, HPV (human papillomavirus), pertussis (DTaP), pneumococcal, meningococcal, shingles, tetanus (toxoid), and diphtheria (toxoid).
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) was the first coronavirus disease coming out of China in 2002. Clinical trials to develop a CoV (coronavirus) vaccine began in China in 2005. None of the vaccines were successful despite 15 years of effort and a case fatality rate of 10%. In fact, SARS-CoV vaccines actually enhanced the virulence of the disease. Animals vaccinated and later exposed to the wild virus in nature had excessive immune responses leading to death! This problem is called antibody dependent enhancement.
MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) occurred in 2012 and had a case fatality rate of 34%, but again no safe and effective vaccine could be created for it.
SARS-CoV-2 came out of China in late 2019 (COVID-19). Improper use of PCR testing identified excessive false positive results leading to a man-made pandemic. Dismissal and smearing af effective therapeutics like hydroxychloroquine, unnecessary fear mongering, censoring anyone who promulgated the truth about the ineffectiveness of mask wearing and social distancing, and political hypocrisy further exacerbated this casedemic. Animal testing was eliminated in the hurried-up rush to bring these inadequately tested products to market. The Pfizer and Moderna products are actually synthetic gene therapy and do not fit in any of the three vaccine categories discussed above. They should not be called vaccines. They are experimental products never before used on humans and have no safety track record. In fact, they are high risk for autoimmune disease, cancer, anaphalaxis, neurological disorders, InflammoThrombotic Response (ITR), and death. They do not make anyone immune to the SARS-CoV-2 infection. Their only "effectiveness" is in reducing symptoms like cough and fever. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine does not prevent the disease. We can still get the virus and we can still give it to others. Despite misleading propaganda that this vaccine will be our saving medical procedure, we will still be required to wear a mask and social distance after getting the shot. So, what is the benefit of their vaccine? The cure is worse than the disease!
Let me share a bit about what the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines actually are. As mentioned already they are nothing like previous vaccines. Developers employed unproven genetic engineering (GE) technology which means we are injecting foreign, synthetic RNA (ribonucleic acid) into all of our human cells. The mRNA (messenger RNA) is thermo-stable because it is encapsulated in nano-lipidparticles attached to polyethylene glycol (PEG) which allows entry in all human cells and avoids the body's regulatory processes that would normally break down harmful substances. The human body is designed to protect us from foreign DNA. But as a result of this technology, each of our 60 trillion cells is forced to create a portion of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein within the cell and then transport it to the cell membrane (glycocalyx). As this synthetic glycoprotein sits on the glycocalyx, the developer's hope is that the immune system will recognize it and create antibodies against it. Here is a cool picture depicting it. Unfortunately, actual trials showed it to be ineffective in stopping the virus. It can only lessen side effects from the disease. Therapeutics like hydroxychloroquine can actually prevent and cure the disease for just pennies. The other options aside from just being sure to have a strong immune system, are all inexpensive and readily available, but Big Pharma is intent on making billions of dollars with new vaccines. It's no wonder the only narrative people read or listen to on the news is, "Get your vaccination!"
What's the inherent danger of this synthetic glycoprotein (consisting of the ACE2 receptor from the coronavirus, a portion of HIV, and syncytin)? There is no doubt it will lead to unforeseen immune system problems. The synthetic syncytin is a gamma retrovirus envelope protein that is cross-reactive with human syncytin. Human syncytin in the body helps create the placenta during pregnancy. So, the risk of autoimmune disease and infertility are extremely high with mRNA technology. These diseases can take months and years to manifest. Since the vaccine clinical trials lasted only days, no one will connect the decline in a person's health to the vaccine UNLESS a person has an acute reaction or death immediately or within days of the shot. Sadly, as of Jan. 29, 2021, there are already 10,748 injuries and 501 deaths reported by the CDC's Vaccine Adverse Event Preporting System website. Manufacturers plan to collect data for the next 24 months on the side effects of this experiemental gene therapy. Humans are the guinea pigs. If you suffer from an adverse vaccine reaction, you are on your own. Vaccine manufacturers are indemnified, which means they are not liable and cannot be sued for damages caused to people by their products.
Besides the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA products, the first true vaccine making it to market is the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. It is a subunit type of vaccine. Johnson & Johnson is reporting a 66% efficacy rate which is far lower than the Pfizer and Moderna rates, but this is more in-line with traditional vaccines. It doesn't mean there won't be side effects or long term dangers with it as there are with all vaccines, but time will tell.
South Africa recently paused their rollout of the Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine after a study showed that it offered "minimal protection" against mild or moderate illness caused by the more contagious virus variant first identified there, known as B.1.351. The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine was being hailed for its low cost and easy storage and was supposed to be one of the world's best hopes for defeating COVID-19. The study documents yet another worrying sign of the risks that new mutations pose to vaccine development and deployment. Herd immunity appears increasingly less achievable via vaccinations. Getting the disease is the easiest and fastest way to achieve natural herd immunity and protect the most vulnerable. Several other COVID-19 vaccines are still in the pharmaceutical pipeline, but the truth about vaccine limitations is slowly beginning to seep out.
I want to finish up by sharing one mathematical note on efficacy rates. There is a statistical trick used all the time by Big Pharma. They love to report relative risk/efficacy rather than absolute risk/efficacy. Pfizer reports a 95% efficacy rate and Moderna reports a 94.1% efficacy rate. This sounds excellent, but because they are reporting relative efficacy and not absolute efficacy, the truth is far less impressive. For example, say the absolute risk of developing a certain disease is 4 people in a group of 1,000. If a vaccine treatment reduces the relative risk by 50%, it means the 4 people is reduced by 50% or half. Therefore, the treatment reduces the absolute risk from 4 people in 1,000 to 2 people in 1,000. Only two people out of 1,000 benefited from the treatment. Not really much of an improvement, is it? But they tout the more dramatic 50% number all the time. In terms of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, reporting a relative efficacy of 95%, when you look at the extremely low numbers used in the trials, the actual results are in the neighborhood of a 1% actual or absolute improvement. Doesn't sound so impressive anymore! The marketing hype and deception are rampant in the pharmaceutical industry. Why would someone get the shot when the actual benefits are so low and the risks of side effects so high?
