Covid and Natural Immunity Explained
Arguably the key linchpin around which the Covid vaccination issue revolves today is that of natural immunity vis-à-vis the Covid gene therapy shot. Note that the primary individual behind the shot’s mRNA platform, Dr. Robert Malone, says the Covid shots, at least the ones using mRNA such as Pfizer, should be called both a vaccine and a gene therapy shot. Also, note that some of the shots out there, such as the Sinovac version from China, actually are true vaccines (and in fact, if you are absolutely forced to get a Covid shot, researchers such as Steven Kirsch (web site here, highly recommended!) think that might be your best bet – but again, another story for another day).
As one final note to set the stage, all of our co-opted organizations, from the FDA to the dictionary publishers, have rushed, just like Orwell told us they would, to frantically change the definition of the word “vaccine.” So… to go along with your 58 genders on Facebook (check back in tomorrow to see if they added a few – or 10 – more), soon we will perhaps have 58 definitions of “vaccine.” Hey! Whatever the WEF, Fauci and their Ministry of Truth corruptocrats need to push their gambit-du-jour). Orwell warned us years ago what they would do, and indeed are now doing right now, as I write this: if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought. We have had three-quarters of a century to have gotten a clue and digest his dire warning, so to fall for it now is no more than what the Bible calls sinning with a high hand.
The Covid shot and Soviet-style non-persons.
The fasco-Marxist left wants to make you into a Soviet-style “non-person” if you don’t allow them to violate their “own my body, my choice” abortion position when it comes to Covid shots. And how, exactly, do hypocrites differ from Robespierre and his French Revolution’s Comité de Salut public (Committee for Public Safety, where one was only really safe after you had been dispatched -by the guillotine)? As Dr. Paul Kengor writes in Vax Fanatics and Natural Immunity, we have the real vax fanatics demanding that 19-year-old girls with a potential graver risk of myocarditis or pericarditis (see even the CDC’s warnings on this, and now a major new study published in JAMA) than of dying of COVID-19, be vaccinated against their will. I mean the intolerant “My Body, My Choice!” liberals taking away your choice. Above all, I mean the vax fanatics who demand that people like myself (note: Kengor, like millions of others, has had Covid), and those in my family, be forced against our will to take vaccines when, in fact, we already have immunity.”
But not to worry. As of mid-Sept., 2021, Instagram has banned the hashtag “natural immunity.” Come to think of it; this is not that dissimilar to their fascist forebears Nacht und Nebel” (“Night and Fog”) decree issues in Germany, 1941. Except, instead of this time political dissidents disappearing, it is dissident words.
Natural immunity – the word that must not be uttered.
Let’s delve into that banned hashtag, the natural immunity. First, those who have had Covid before might want to not get the shot, as cardiac surgeon Dr. Hooman Noorchashm has warned and explained on his website, as getting this after you contracted it naturally could be detrimental to your health. But, as we will discuss at length below, it is now known that it is simply rare to get sick again. Robust natural immunity has been demonstrated for a minimum of eight months after recovery in more than 95% of people (see Science article here, or Nature article here), but that doesn’t stop the ninnies at the CDC to recommend you still get the jab.
The issue is that there are viral antigens that remain in the body after a person is naturally infected; the immune response reactivated by the COVID-19 vaccine may trigger inflammation in tissues where the viral antigens exist, where the inner lining of blood vessels, the lungs, and the brain may be particularly at risk of such inflammation, lead to thromboembolic complications. One has to wonder if many of those experiencing Covid shot issues had an asymptomatic version of the infection. This may be particularly true of the elderly, who have a cardiac event as Hank Aaron did after the shot, but it was ascribed to his heart. In fact, in France, their la Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS) does not recommend routinely vaccinating those who have already recovered from COVID-19.
Longer lasting than the Energizer Bunny
Cleveland Clinic research published in June 2021 corroborated that antibodies of those who have had Covid are still active a year later. One doctor had the temerity to comment about this: “The Cleveland Clinic has come out with a case study indicating that titers over 200 lend adequate natural immunity. This begs the question: why do we do free testing and free vaccines but not free titers? Why is that?”
But now, the story turns ominous, relative to the integrity of the scientific method, where even the famed Mayo Clinic has scrubbed references to survivors of the 1919 Spanish flu having antibodies that remained a hundred years later. You, dear reader, know why – the Mayo CEO is a governor at the WEF. It is simple to extrapolate this to Covid, which might stop the push to give everyone the death jab, so they simply cannot have that. I personally called Mayo twice about this and got blown off both times. But the consolation is this intellectual dishonesty, times a million and one other occasions of similar antics, with a thousand and one other citizen reporters, simply looking for the truth, but instead getting calculated but still poorly crafted lies, will eventually erode the whole rotten edifice.
Further, the issue about vaccinating those who have already had Covid is that, per NoQReport, …when the body is “tricked” into making antibodies, the newly developed processes supersede the original processes. With diseases like polio or measles, the vaccination process works because the vast majority of the population has never been infected. Moreover, the diseases themselves are debilitating or even deadly, so protocols to force natural immunity would be far too risky. Covid-19 is entirely different. First, a huge chunk of the world’s population has already been infected, recovered, and established natural immunity to the disease. Second, the disease is far less debilitating or deadly than polio or measles, so those who are not at risk would benefit from catching the disease and fighting it off with their immune system. There are other problems, which we will note elsewhere, for those who have autoimmunity, but these issues are a good start.
Science magazine agrees that natural immunity is valid, though still pushing the shot: The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta (and now omicron) variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The newly released data show people who once had a SARS-CoV-2 infection were much less likely than never-infected, vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms from it, or become hospitalized with serious COVID-19.
The RedCross agrees, writing here: Antibodies that an individual produces when they’ve been exposed to the virus are slightly different from the antibodies that an individual produces when they’ve been vaccinated. When an individual has been infected with a virus, they produce antibodies to multiple regions of a virus, including the nucleocapsid protein. An individual who has received a COVID-19 vaccine will produce antibodies to the spike protein of the virus, but not the nucleocapsid protein, which will only occur in the event of a COVID-19 infection.” Again, natural immunity is better. But, contrary to rumor, Red Cross is taking donations from vaccinated!
Dr. Martin Kuldorff at Harvard Medical School says something exactly the same about natural immunity. Here he is in his own words:
And this late Aug. 2021 medical study, entitled Comparing SARS-CoV-2 natural immunity to vaccine-induced immunity: reinfections versus breakthrough infections, found that infection from COVID-19 confers considerably longer-lasting and stronger protection against the Delta variant of the virus than vaccines. Including studies out of Israel, there are now fifteen studies on the superiority of natural immunity (note: after this was written, many, many more studies have been published on the issue).
U.S. Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY)– himself a doctor – notes in this tweet:
This is all extremely significant in that an early Sept. 2021 report shows fully 83% of Americans may possess coronavirus immunity.
In the U.S., against all this forced mask and shot madness. Some courageous military members filed a lawsuit in Aug. 2021 over the natural immunity issue, which is currently being litigated. Activist Post tells us – which I cite in full here, to encourage us as we fight our desperate, rear-guard battle – yes, people are fighting, and are winning:
Two active-duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces on Aug. 17 filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on behalf of themselves and 220,000 active service members who are being forced to get a COVID vaccine despite having had COVID and acquired natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2. The lead plaintiffs in the lawsuit, Staff Sergeant Daniel Robert and Staff Sergeant Holli Mulvihill, allege U.S. Sec. of Defense Lloyd Austin ignored the DOD’s own regulations and created an entirely new definition of “full immunity” as being achievable only by vaccination. According to the lawsuit, the military’s existing laws and regulations unequivocally provide the exemption the plaintiffs seek under Army Regulation 40-562 (“AR 40-562”), which provides documented survivors of an infection a presumptive medical exemption from vaccination because of the natural immunity acquired as a result of having survived the infection. Under the military’s regulations (AR 40-562, ¶2-6a.(1)(b): “General examples of medical exemptions include the following … Evidence of immunity based on serologic tests, documented infection or similar circumstances.” Another lawsuit, cited in the same article, was filed by healthcare workers in Maine. This, despite the traitorous Austin, who ordered the entire armed forces vaccinated, saying, “Those with previous COVID-19 infection are not considered fully vaccinated,” which, of course, is in direct contradiction to the medically trained Dr. Admiral Brett Giroir, HHS assistant secretary, stated in an interview Aug. 24 with Fox News: “So natural immunity, it’s very important … There are still no data to suggest vaccine immunity is better than natural immunity. I think both are highly protective.”
The problem is that the Covid shot confers only very narrow immunity; when you get the shot, you manufacture the spike protein, which your body then makes antibodies against it (forgetting, for now, that the spike protein damages your vascular system), which recognize only that protein, and not the other parts of the virus. If you had the virus and now have natural immunity, you have antibodies against all parts of the virus, the spike, plus four other proteins. You also have memory T-cells that may be even more important in the fight. Mercola asks: If you pay attention, you will find that no one ever offers a sensible explanation for why a single anti-spike antibody would be better than T cells and antibodies against all parts of the virus.
Another study besides Cleveland Clinic shows the same: a May 2020 study at Cell.com found 70% of samples from patients who had recovered from mild cases of COVID-19 had resistance to SARS-CoV-2 on the T-cell level. 40% to 60% of people who had not been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 also had resistance to the virus on the T-cell level. The authors suggest there’s cross-reactive T cell recognition between circulating ‘common cold’ coronaviruses and SARS-CoV-2.
A German paper, here at MedRxiv said the same thing, looking at helper T cells that targeted the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein in 15 of 18 patients hospitalized with COVID-19. Need more? Singaporean researchers found common colds caused by the beta coronaviruses OC43 and HKU1 might make you more resistant to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Mercola adds They also found that patients who became infected with the original SARS virus back in 2003 still had memory T cell immunity against SARS-CoV-2, despite the virus being only 80% similar. This study suggests natural immunity is likely to last decades, not months, like the COVID shot.
Newstarget similarly reports that natural immunity is comprehensive and durable, writing:
A precedent-setting study on natural immunity was published in Cell on July 14, 2021. The study finds that natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, is comprehensive and durable, with persisting antibody responses, robust memory B cell recognition, and T cell immunity. The study followed 254 covid patients for eight months and measured immune markers in their blood samples. The recovered patients included men and women who experienced a range of outcomes, from mild, moderate, and severe disease.
The researchers used cross-sectional and longitudinal studies and found that SARS-CoV-2 infection causes the immune system to generate poly-clonal, humoral, and cellular immune responses that target multiple viral proteins while establishing long-term immunity to SARS-CoV-2 and a host of other coronaviruses. After eight months, the CD4 and CD8 T cells recognized distinct viral epitope regions and displayed durable, poly-functional immunity to SARS-CoV-2 and a host of other coronaviruses, namely HKU1 and OC43. The natural infection also boosts antibody titers to SARS-CoV-1. The CD4 T cells target the SARS-CoV-2 proteins equally, promising a comprehensive immune response. The CD8 T cells specifically target the nucleoprotein of SARS-CoV-2, promising precision immune responses to future coronaviruses.
The neutralizing and binding antibodies detected post-infection exhibit a bi-phasic decay, with an extended half-life more significant than 200 days. This indicates the development of longstanding plasma cells that can recognize and neutralize future SARS-CoV-2 viral proteins.
The researchers used the Mesoscale multiplex assay to measure IgG, IgA, and IgM antibody responses to SARS-CoV-2 proteins. The researchers measured binding antibodies to the full-length spike protein, to the receptor-binding domain (RBD), and to the N-terminal domain (NTD) of the spike protein. These results were compared to control blood samples, which were obtained from pre-pandemic individuals vaccinated with either yellow fever or influenza vaccines. The antibodies that bind to the spike RBD and NTD epitopes are able to block the SARS-Co-2 infection of the respiratory epithelial cells. These natural antibodies inhibit interactions between the viral spike and the ACE2 receptor. The IgG antibodies spiked by 92 percent in covid-19 convalescent recipients, when compared to the controls. The IgG response was robust after infection and predictably declined before stabilizing again, indicating long-living plasma cells that can convey immunity long into the future.”
“The reason natural immunity is superior to vaccine-induced immunity is because viruses contain five different proteins. The COVID shot induces antibodies against just one of those proteins, the spike protein, and no T cell immunity. When you’re infected with the whole virus, you develop antibodies against all parts of the virus, plus memory T cells. This also means natural immunity offers better protection against variants, as it recognizes several parts of the virus. If there are significant alternations to the spike protein, as with the Delta variant, vaccine-induced immunity can be evaded. Not so with natural immunity, as the other proteins are still recognized and attacked. Not only that, but the COVID jabs actually actively promote the production of variants for which they provide virtually no protection at all, while those with natural immunity do not cause variants and are nearly universally protected against them. If we are to depend on vaccine-induced immunity, as public health officials are urging us to do, we’ll end up on a never-ending booster treadmill. Boosters will absolutely be necessary, as the shot offers such narrow protection against a single protein of the virus.
We have reached the end of part one of the examination of natural immunity. As you can see, there are absolutely zero reasons to back down to the Covid shot bullies. Next week I plan to give you more information, to quit going from rear-guard action and move over onto the offense.
