Vaccines Introduced During a Pandemic Cause Dangerous Mutations: UK Government
Never introduce leaky vaccines when infection rates are high
As the world panics about the
Nu Xi Omicron variant, remember this:
The combination of high prevalence and high levels of vaccination creates the conditions in which an immune escape variant is most likely to emerge.
That’s from the UK’s official website, and it’s still up today. But here’s a screenshot in case they flush this news down the memory hole.

We knew 15 months ago that less-than-perfect vaccines introduced during a pandemic only increase spread of the most virulent mutations. We learned this from chickens a long time ago.
Rhode Island Red and Marek’s Disease
Marek’s disease is a common chicken virus that comes in four strains of increasing virulence. The mildest form kills few birds but lingers; the most virulent kills an unvaccinated chicken in a day or two.
Researchers used the vaccine on Rhode Island Red chickens to test a hypothesis that “imperfect” vaccines introduced during an outbreak increase the virulence of a virus. (You can read the whole report on the NIH’s PLoS website.)
If the vaccine is sterilizing, so that transmission is stopped [i.e, a “perfect” vaccine], no evolution can occur. But if it is non-sterilizing, so that naturally acquired pathogens can transmit from immunized individuals (what we hereafter call a “leaky” vaccine), virulent strains will be able to circulate in situations in which natural selection would have once removed them . Thus, anti-disease vaccines (those reducing in-host replication or pathogenicity) have the potential to generate evolution harmful to human and animal well-being.
The study’s authors point out that, as of o July 2015 when their study was published, no human “leaky” vaccines had been introduced, therefore, science has no example in human experience. From the report:
The imperfect-vaccine hypothesis attracted controversy, not least because human vaccines have apparently not caused an increase in the virulence of their target pathogens. But most human vaccines are sterilizing (transmission-blocking) or not in widespread use or only recently introduced.
So, as of 2015, humans were spared the problems associated with a leaky vaccine introduced widely during a raging pandemic.
Then, along came COVID.
COVID Vaccines Check All the Wrong Boxes
Operation Warp Speed, a program to accelerate a vaccine against Coronavirus that could be widely distributed in record time, meets all the criteria of the imperfect-vaccine hypothesis.
The vaccines are leaky and do not prevent contraction or transmission of the disease
The vaccines allow hosts with the most virulent strains to circulate and spread the disease
The vaccines were introduced during a pandemic
And the vaccines were widely used
In other words, the COVID vaccine programs almost perfectly replicated the leaky-vaccine experiment that proved the hypothesis: imperfect vaccines introduced when a disease is prevalent increase transmission of the most virulent strains.
When Will They Admit Their Error?
By keeping infected birds alive, vaccination substantially enhances the transmission success and hence spread of virus strains too lethal to persist in unvaccinated populations, which would therefore have been removed by natural selection in the pre-vaccine era.
It is obvious to everyone that the COVID vaccines are far from perfect. Even Dr. Pfauci says so repeatedly. Obvious, too, is the fact that more people have died of COVID since the introduction of the vaccines than before. Finally, it is obvious that natural immunity is the best defense against serious COVID cases, and the way to achieve natural immunity is early intervention with Ivermectin and its supporting drugs, doxycycline and prednisone.
The correct public health policy would be to distribute COVID Ivermectin kits to everyone who does not have natural immunity and tell them to go about their lives. We exhorted our readers to build their own Ivermectin (or HCQ) kits in this post:
Now, it’s time to act. Coronavirus isn’t going away, and the vaccines can only make the problem worse. Urge your members of Congress, candidates for Congress in 2022, and your state legislators to abandon the vaccine trainwreck and promote early interventions that work.
