Scientists fear too many shots might cause immune system fatigue
By Art Moore
A study by Danish researchers finds that after 90 days, the COVID-19 vaccines will make you more likely to get infected from omicron, not less.
They may offer a short-term benefit from the delta variant, “but at the expense of a degradation of your overall immunity to everything else,” reports Steve Kirsch. a Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur and philanthropist who founded the Covid-19 Early Treatment Fund.
The study shows that after three months, the effectiveness of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines against omicron is actually negative.
The Pfizer vaccine makes recipients 76.5% more likely and the Moderna recipients 39.3% more likely to be infected than unvaccinated people.
Last week, the New York Times reported scientists were warning that a plan by the Israeli government to recommend a fourth vaccine dose to address signs of waning immunity a few months after the third shot could backfire.
The scientists said, in the Times words, that “too many shots might cause a sort of immune system fatigue, compromising the body’s ability to fight the coronavirus.”

A few members of the Israeli government’s advisory panel raised that concern with respect to the elderly, said the Times, which cited a written summary of the discussion obtained by the paper.
He appeared to be describing Antibody Dependent Enhancement, a mechanism in which antibodies are unable to neutralize a virus but instead increase its ability to infect cells, making the disease worse.
Long before the release of the COVID vaccines, Fauci was emphasizing the importance of safety trials to screen for possible unintended consequences such as ADE, which he said in March 2020 could take a year to a year and a half.
“If you vaccinate someone and they make an antibody response, and then they get exposed and infected, does the response that you induce actually enhance the infection and make it worse?”
The only way you can find out, he said, is “if you do an extended study, not in a normal volunteer who has no risk of infection, but in people who are out there in a risk situation.”
If it were to happen, he said, it “would not be the first time that a vaccine that looked good in initial safety (trials), actually made people worse.”
