The herd immunity through vaccination experiment has failed

The single most important objective of mass vaccination with Covid-19 vaccines was to achieve herd immunity. This is no longer within reach. Now "experts" not only blame disappointing vaccine coverage rates but also the unvaccinated.

    Herd immunity is achieved when an infection no longer encounters enough hosts to allow it to spread further. Herd immunity is also generally achieved through post-infection immunization and vaccination. With some diseases, such as smallpox or measles, the vaccination works perfectly, with others, such as respiratory diseases, only to a limited extent or not at all. This is particularly the case with SARS-CoV-2.

    The new UK technical briefing, which reports deaths and hospitalizations by vaccination status, paints a terrible picture. Over the last month, fully vaccinated people made up over half of new deaths for the first time – 106 out of 203.

    For every infectious disease there is a threshold above which herd immunity is achieved. How much this is depends on how infectious the virus is and how a society is organized. As a rule of thumb, the formula 1-1/R0 applies, where R0 is the reproduction factor. With an R0 of 2,5 to 3, as can be assumed for SARS-CoV-2, the threshold for herd immunity would be reached at a degree of mechanization of 60 to 67 percent.

    The threshold is always below the result of this formula, because it only applies to homogeneous societies where everyone has the same number of contacts with others. But that does not exist in practice. An immunized person with a large number of contacts contributes significantly more to herd immunity than a hermit.

    Those who understand how current vaccines work have been explaining this for almost a year. Antibodies are produced, but these circulate in the blood, as do the even more important specific T-cells.

    The crucial antibodies and T-cells to prevent infection, namely those in the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract – nose, mouth and throat – cannot be produced by this type of Covid-19 vaccination since it requires an infection through these upper respiratory tracts.

    And it has been confirmed by practical experience. In the countries with high percentages of vaccinated people, it is clear that the distribution of infections between vaccinated and unvaccinated people corresponds to the ratio of vaccinations. In fact, in countries where there are few people who have been vaccinated, the number of infections is low.

    Vaccination does not even protect against hospitalization and serious illness as claimed by the approval studies of vaccine manufacturers and politicians as data from Israel shows. Politicians are nevertheless calling for more vaccinations, compulsory vaccination or at least disadvantages for unvaccinated people. Only – the data show that vaccinated people are infected about as often as unvaccinated people.

    This is the view of Geert van den Bossche. “It is, indeed, quite unbelievable that some advising experts pretend that although we won’t achieve herd immunity, we will still be able to exchange the pandemic for an endemic situation. When does that happen? The answer is: never.”

    In refusing to recommend and use cheap, available effective treatments, the WHO, EMA, CDC and other national and international health authorities have caused millions of deaths, some of them directly from the vaccinations themselves. Notably the public health institution NHS England has put out a £3,2 billion tender for blood clot treatment, one of the side-effects of the vaccines.

    The ethicist Ruth Baumann-Hölzle warned in an interview in the Neue Zuercher Zeitung that the most basic conflicts around vaccination were not being openly discussed. When it comes to vaccination, the state is pretending that it offers protection which it does not, she pointed out.

    The effectiveness of Pfizer’s vaccine against Covid-19 infection has fallen to 39 percent in Israel, the national health ministry said on Thursday. This rate is significantly lower than 64 percent measured between June 6 and July 3 and 94,3 percent measured between May 2 and June 5.

    Israel and the UK have had one of the most effective vaccination campaigns in the world, with nearly 57 percent of Israelis fully vaccinated.
