Covid Vaccines are Non-Sterilizing

Covid Vaccines are Non-Sterilizing. By Karl Denninger.

By “vaccine,” we normally mean a “sterilizing vaccine”:

To be sterilizing a vaccine must prevent infection. Since you never get infected, you never replicate the virus and thus do not shed it. If you do not shed it, the potential path of the viral life-cycle for that particular infection ends with you and thus you cannot pass on or cause a mutation. You are sterile against that disease; from the point of view of the virus you are a lifeless rock.

Among commonly-used sterilizing vaccines are MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), Varicella (chicken pox), OPV (oral polio) and others. The only time that such a vaccine fails is when you do not build immunity (such as due to immune compromise.) This is extremely rare and the protection from such vaccines tends to be either decades-long or lifetime. …

Natural infection with Covid-19 is sterilizing. …

But the covid vaccines to date are not sterilizing:

A vaccine that is not sterilizing permits the virus to infect you and replicate and as a result you can infect others. Technically it is not a vaccine at all (which by definition prevents infection); it is a prophylactic therapy.

Such a “vaccine” instead acts to reduce or eliminate symptomatic disease. You don’t know you’re sick and you don’t get sick. You don’t go to the hospital and you don’t die. Unfortunately since you don’t know you’re sick but are infected and the virus is both replicating in you and shedding you are more-likely to spread the infection to others. All of the current Covid jabs are in this category and so is, for that matter IPV (injected polio vaccine — the original Salk discovery) …

Jabbed people in fact not only get infected but spread the virus to others.

The problem with non-sterilizing vaccines is simply this: There is no safe means of mass-use of non-sterilizing vaccines so long as transmission within the community does or is likely to exist.

Ever. There are no exceptions.

This was known to public health officials and virologists seventy years ago and is why the United States used both IPV (injected polio vaccine) and OPV (oral polio vaccine) in sequence for polio until the 1990s. …

Had we done with polio what we’re doing now with Covid … it is very likely the virus would have mutated, escaped the vaccine and killed millions in America.

Every single so-called expert knows damn well why we didn’t do that with polio and how dangerous it is to attempt it. Indeed where polio still circulates but money is scarce they use OPV only (which is sterilizing) and accept the risk of the rare but possible active case it can cause for this exact reason. …

The future:

It was ridiculously and grossly negligent entering into the territory of depraved indifference to mass-vaccinate the population with non-sterilizing jabs. We knew very early on that eradicating Covid-19 was impossible; there are animal reservoirs, specifically felines (of all sorts), ferrets and likely others (now believed to include deer.) We have never eradicated rabies and never will for this reason; as long as there are animal reservoirs you cannot eradicate a virus as it always has a host and a means of transmission outside of human control. …

Eventually we are very likely to get a mutation that entirely evades the jabs. That mutation will be caused by those who are jabbed since they are the only ones placing such mutational pressure on the virus. An unvaccinated person who gets infected places no such mutational pressure on the virus where a vaccinated person not only does they provide the exact pathway that virologists use to intentionally select for more-transmissible, virile or both mutations — serial passage through cells that does not kill the host. …

The only means to combat a pathogen absent sterilizing vaccination is to hit infections early and hard with whatever you have for the purpose of reducing viral load so as to produce durable, sterilizing immunity via infection. If you reduce viral load you reduce both the risk of pathology seriously injuring or killing the infected person and also reduce the forward transmission rate … of said virus. …

What to do?

It’s too late now; we’re stuck with the stupid, particularly all the screaming harpies who went out and got jabbed despite being at very low risk of serious outcomes themselves, turning themselves into literal gain-of-function labs for the virus. …

By taking the jab and then getting infected anyway you have now not just become a potential mutational factory, you are one of the people causing what will ultimately become viral escape and the screwing of yourself and others. …

This, and only this, is why I will not consent to such a jab under any circumstances until and unless there is hard science showing that a sterilizing option exists. That one, assuming the risk profile is reasonable, is one I might consider. Said jab today does not exist anywhere in the United States and I’m unaware of any scientific work showing that any of the current jabs are sterilizing irrespective of where they are manufactured and sold.

When are our policy makers going to wake up to the possible dangers of their vaccine strategy, and switch to a strategy of anti-viral cocktails?

The vast majority of people, including our policy makers, have been assuming that the covid “vaccines” are like other vaccines and are thus sterilizing. Nope.

Only in the last two weeks has it even dawned on many that the vaccines do not stop you from getting covid, do not kill it, and do not stop you spreading it to others. They initially reduce the rates of infection, spread, and hospitalization, but at what long-term cost?

It would appear that it might be more responsible not to get a vaccine, because that way you won’t become one more human Petri dish to breed covid mutations.

UPDATE: Mass Vaccination Delays Herd Immunity and Risks Greater Damage, Unless a Sterilizing Vaccine Can Be Found
