"John, my friend,
It appears that what we have here "is a failure to communicate" as said by Paul Neuman in the movie "Cool Hand Luke". It is probably my fault.
I was not arguing for or against vaccinations in the beginning of this email stream but rather for natural immunity in a smaller percentage of the population after the majority have been vaccinated. In other words, I was making an evaluation of circumstances as they are at the present time not at the beginning of the pandemic. However I will make my case for natural immunity over immunity from vaccinations later in this epistle 😊
I have listened to several virologists and epidemiologist who are experts and very respected in their field of viruses and epidemics, etc. who claim the very worst thing that can happen to create variants of a disease is to vaccinate a population that is already suffering to a large extent from the disease. Natural selection will then select the mutations that can resist the vaccine in the population that is currently infected with the original variant(s). They claim that it is the vaccinated that are creating the variants. Who knows ? This is one reason we try to anticipate the next flu virus and offer flu vaccinations before the next flu season hits, not after the flu season is fully underway. Now I do not want to get into a debate as to whether this is true or not. I just throw it out there as one point of view.
All I was saying previously is that any new cases of COVID at this point in time add to the herd immunity as a whole as long as the infected person does not die. Those that are compromised should take measures to be extra careful to avoid infection. The rest of the population does have a death rate well below 1%. And the death rate in children ages 5 thru 12 is so small it is almost not existent. The first rule of medicine is to do no harm. The probability of blood clots, heart failure, and other adverse reactions to the vaccination in children though very small is still greater than the probability of these children dying from COVID. I agree with the researchers and doctors who say that vaccinating children for COVID given the risk of side effects with no significant benefit to these children is medical malpractice or malfeasance. Leave the children alone. 99.99 % percent of them will be just fine. The other 0.001% or so can be treated effectively with medications that are now available to treat COVID.
As for "Natural Immunity": there is a raging debate about which is better, natural immunity or immunity from the COVID vaccination. One does not encounter both sides of this debate on the Main Stream Media, establishment, and government sponsored adds that seem to have just one objective in mind above all other points of view and that objective is to get everyone (100%) vaccinated. This has driven them to censor all of the debate to the contrary.
However on "free speech media" one hears the other points of view of very excellent experts trying to get the truth out to the public. It is a very daunting task given the power of the Main Stream Media. Historically, almost 100 % of virus epidemics have achieved natural immunity that lasts for years and even for a life time according to many experts who have worked in this field for their entire careers (i.e. decades). I personally believe all of the effort to malign natural immunity is once again a singular focus to vaccinate 100% of the public and any arguments to the contrary are seen as a threat to this effort. In other words, "extreme bias". The experts who support the superiority of natural immunity compared to the vaccination describe the science and process by which this is achieved with the B cells and the T cells that maintain memory of the virus long after the antibodies fade away. Antibodies can then be created again very rapidly the next time the same virus or a variant presents itself in the future. I do believe this science and these explanations. I do not believe those who try to demean natural immunity due to their agenda and heavy bias. Sure I have confirmation bias as well, but I am not a fool and I study the science very critically as it is presented. I find all kinds of flaws in narrative from Big Pharma, CDC, FDA, AMA, WHO, HIH, and Main Stream Media who are all "hell bent' on getting us all vaccinated. Their arguments when examine closely are often shallow, outdated, or sensationalized to create urgence for the COVID vaccination and sometimes the information they present is an absolute lie given the current knowledge about the pandemic. For instance: the adds on KSL Channel 5 New etc. that say the Phizer vaccine is 95 % effective, when Phizer themselves now claim it is only 65 % effective and dropping every day. This is why so may of the vaccinated are coming to hospital with COVID. In Whales, Israel, Iceland, etc. who are heavily vaccinated, over half of those coming to the hospitals with COVID are now the vaccinated. The promotors of the vaccination are now saying that to achieve permanent immunity the public may need to continue getting booter shots for the unforeseen future to counter all the future variants. I would much rather have natural immunity against all of the variants that may last me for years and probably the rest of my life depending on who you listen too. The fact is however that a lot of the vaccinated don't appear to have they immunity they were promised by the promotors of the COVID vaccinations as proven by current events. I've said enough.
Thank you for your concern about my health. I wish the best for you as well."
