Scientists warn COVID booster shots may enable more virulent variants

(NaturalHealth365) “Booster shot.” The phrase is simply a euphemism for a repeated jab, and as the experimental COVID injection rollout continues across the country, health officials appear to be working hard to normalize the idea that people will have to keep getting injections over and over again in order to get back to “normal.” Even the CEO of Pfizer recently admitted that he predicts (…hopes?) people will need to get a COVID shot every year.
However, many scientists are now expressing serious concern over the possibility that these booster shots will lead to rapid viral evolution, spawning more and more infectious COVID variants that the Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J shots could be completely useless against … or perhaps even responsible for.
Scientists warn: Instead of “outsmarting” COVID variants, booster shots could drive virus mutations
Remember superbugs? Those virulent and resistant bacteria that are impervious to even our most powerful antibiotics? The creation of antibiotic resistance is a well-documented and frightening reality of modern-day medicine — and many experts are now concerned that the experimental COVID jab rollout will lead to a similar crisis with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Shot-supporters claim that COVID booster shots will be necessary to fight against future COVID variants. However, many experts believe that it’s the booster shots themselves that could end up driving the growth of more infectious and potentially harmful COVID variants.
This is due to a phenomenon known as “selection pressure” on the novel coronavirus. Since NO injection is 100% effective, this means at least some SARS-CoV-2 viruses will survive — and the ones that DO end up surviving will mutate in a way that allows them to escape the effects of immune responses to injection or natural infection.
Scientists from around the world have been warning about this possibility for months. Noted vaccinologist Geert Vanden Bossche, Ph.D. recently released a public statement about the risks of mass vaccinations, where he warned that there is “no doubt … continued mass vaccination campaigns will enable new, more infectious viral variants to become increasingly dominant and ultimately result in a dramatic incline in new cases despite enhanced vaccine coverage rates. There can be no doubt either that this situation will soon lead to complete resistance of circulating variants” to the current injections.
In other breaking news, CDC notes that Americans should be offered J&J shot again … with an added “warning” notice
On April 23, 2021, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, advising on behalf of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), voted 10 to 4 to end the 11-day ban on the J&J shot.
The J&J shot was initially paused after alarming reports came out about rare cases of dangerous blood clots among 6 young women following their injections. Since the pause on the J&J shot was initiated, the number of blood clot cases has more than doubled to 15. Three of these women died, seven remain hospitalized, and it’s still unclear just how many more people have been or will be affected by this life-threatening post-injection condition.
Despite these adverse events, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices says that lifting the temporary ban on the J&J shot is in the best interest of the U.S. public and that the benefits of the shot outweigh the potential risks. Notably, the committee recommends adding a warning notice and updating the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization highlighting the link between this shot and the increased risk of blood clots. (Mainstream media is also busy offering their “warnings” over the shot, including the fact that the supply of Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J injections will soon likely outpace the demand.)
It’s not clear yet if and when the J&J shot will be made available to the public again. But, the decision of whether to lift the pause now goes to CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky.
