The vaccine makes COVID worse, the latest data shows

While the official COVID story continues to blame the ongoing pandemic on the unvaccinated, data shows that areas with high vaccination rates, such as Israel, Portugal, Iceland, in fact, have more COVID-19 cases and spread, writes Dr. Joseph Mercola.
Research shows that increases in COVID-19 cases are completely unrelated to vaccination levels in 68 countries around the world and 2,947 counties in the US.
The data from U.S. districts show similar trends, with new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people being “largely similar,” regardless of vaccination coverage.
Of the five U.S. counties with the highest vaccination rates — ranging from 84.3% to 99.9% fully vaccinated — four are on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) “high transmission” list, while 26, 3% of the 57 counties with “low transmission” have vaccination rates below 20%.
Iceland and Portugal, where more than 75% of the population is fully vaccinated, have more COVID-19 cases per 1 million inhabitants than Vietnam and South Africa, where only about 10% of the population is fully vaccinated.
CDC data shows that hospitalizations for serious illness among fully vaccinated individuals increased from 0.01% in January 2021 to 9% in May 2021, and deaths rose from 0% to 15.1%. If the vaccinations really worked, these percentages should have remained close to zero.
Given the magnitude of the massive vaccination campaign against COVID-19, if the injections worked as advertised, we would already have vaccine-induced herd immunity. As of October 28, 2021, 6.94 billion doses of COVID-19 shots had been administered, equivalent to 49% of the world’s population receiving at least one dose.
Add to that the fact that we have widespread natural immunity, and COVID-19 should really be a non-issue at this point. Rarely does a pandemic last longer than 18 months. Still, COVID-19 reportedly persists. Obviously, the mass injection is not working.
A study published in the European Journal of Epidemiology at the end of September 2021 confirms this and shows that the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases (i.e. positive cases based on PCR tests) is completely unrelated to vaccination levels in 68 countries around the world. The same is true for 2,947 counties in the US.
Data show that COVID shots do not affect the number of infections
While the official COVID story continues to blame the ongoing pandemic on the unvaccinated, data shows that high-vaccination areas, such as Israel, still have a significant spread of COVID-19 hospitalizations. As noted by SV Subramanian, of the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies and a colleague in the European Journal of Epidemiology:
“Vaccines are currently the primary control strategy to fight COVID-19 around the world. For example, the narrative associated with the current increase in new cases in the United States (US) is argued to be driven by areas with low vaccination rates.”
A similar story has also been observed in countries such as Germany and the United Kingdom. At the same time, Israel, which has been praised for its rapid and high vaccination rate, has also seen a significant resurgence in COVID-19 cases.”
Using data available as of September 3, 2021, from Our World in Data for cross-country analysis, and White House COVID-19 Team data for U.S. districts, the researchers examined the relationship between new COVID-19 cases and the percentage of the population that was fully vaccinated.
Sixty-eight countries were included. The inclusion criteria included second-dose vaccine data, COVID-19 case data, and population data as of September 3, 2021. They then calculated the number of COVID-19 cases per 1 million people for each country and calculated the percentage of the population that was fully vaccinated.
According to the authors, there was “no discernible association between the percentage of the population that was fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the past seven days.” Higher vaccination rates were associated with a slight increase in the number of cases. According to the authors:
“The trend line suggests a marginal positive relationship, such that countries with a higher percentage of the population that is fully vaccinated have more COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.”
But vaccinations were promised they prevent infection(s) with CORONA?
As noted by Martenson, this goes against the official narrative that the injections are highly effective in preventing symptomatic infection. Wikipedia goes as far as to claim “A COVID-19 vaccine is a vaccine intended to provide acquired immunity against COVID-19,” when in fact it does no such thing at all.
Even the developers admit that the jab cannot prevent infection. It only –hopefully- reduces the symptoms of the infection.
Higher vaccination rates linked to higher covid numbers
If there was any doubt about the need to seriously question the global mass-injection campaign, this should put the matter to rest: Iceland and Portugal, where more than 75% of the population is fully vaccinated, have more COVID-19 infection cases per 1 million people than Vietnam and South Africa, where only about 10% of the population is fully vaccinated.
The toxic mRNA vaccines: Medical errors or “slow genocide”?
Israel is another example. With more than 65% of its population fully vaccinated, it had the highest number of COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the seven days leading up to September 3, 2021.
The data from the US districts showed similar trends, with new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people being “largely similar” regardless of vaccination coverage. “I’m pretty sure this isn’t how it’s supposed to work,” Martenson says.
He points out that President Biden recently issued a statement saying that health workers should be fully vaccinated because then they “cannot transmit COVID-19 to patients.” “That doesn’t make sense, though,” Martenson says, “because here we don’t see that association, which it should be and which was guaranteed by Big Pharma and their puppet-politicians, the more vaccinated a population is, the lower the transmission rate.”
The study authors further note that there is no evidence whatsoever that cases decrease as vaccination rates increase. “There also appears to be no significant sign that COVID-19 cases are declining as the percentage of the population that is fully vaccinated is higher,” they write.
Notably, of the five U.S. districts with the highest vaccination rates — ranging from 84.3% to 99.9% fully vaccinated — four are on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “high transmission” list. Meanwhile, 26.3% of the 57 “low transmission” districts had vaccination rates below 20%.
The study even accounted for a one-month delay that could occur in fully vaccinated individuals, as it is said that it takes two weeks after the last dose for “complete immunity” to set in. Still, “no discernible association between COVID-19 cases and the percentage of fully vaccinated” was observed.
High time to change strategy (if Public Health Care would be the main aim)
The study lists several reasons why “relying solely on vaccination as a primary strategy to mitigate COVID-19” should be re-evaluated and abounded. To begin with, the effectiveness of the vaccination is declining rapidly.
A report from the Israeli Ministry of Health shows that the injection of Pfizer-BioNTech went from effectiveness of 95% in December 2020, to 64% in early July 2021 and 39% by the end of July, when the Delta tribe became predominant.
“A significant decline in immunity from mRNA vaccines six months after immunization has also been reported,” the researchers noted, adding that even severe hospitalization and death from COVID-19, against which the shots claim to protect, have increased dramatically.
Data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that hospitalizations for major illnesses among fully vaccinated people rose from 0.01% in January 2021 to 9% in May 2021, and deaths rose from 0% to 15 .1%. If the injections work as advertised, why are these percentages rising? They should have stayed near zero.
The researchers also noted that immunity derived from the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is not as strong as immunity acquired through recovery from the COVID-19 virus. For example, a retrospective observational study, published on August 25, 2021, found that natural immunity is superior to immunity from COVID-19 shots. According to the authors of that study:
“…natural immunity confers longer-lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic illness, and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the two-dose BNT162b2 vaccine-induced immunity.”
The fact is, while breakthrough cases continue to occur in those who have received all COVID-19 injections, it is extremely rare to be re-infected by COVID-19 after you’ve already had the disease and recovered (life-long natural immunity).
This was shown in an Irish study, which looked at data from 615,777 people who had recovered from COVID-19, with a follow-up of more than 10 months. The absolute reinfection rate ranged from 0% to 1.1%, while the median reinfection rate was only 0.27%. As noted by the authors, “Reinfection was an uncommon occurrence… and no study reported an increase in the risk of reinfection over time.”
Another study showed similar reassuring results. 43,044 SARS-CoV-2 positive people were followed for 35 weeks, and only 0.7% were reinfected. When genome sequencing was applied to estimate the risk of reinfection at the population level, the risk was estimated to be 0.1%.
After seven months, there was still no evidence of declining immunity. According to the authors of that study, “Reinfection is rare. Natural infection appears to elicit strong protection against reinfection with >90% efficacy for at least seven months.”
Only risks and no rewards?
The purpose of informed consent is to give people all the available data about a medical procedure so that they can make an informed decision before giving consent. In the case of the COVID-19 jab, very little data was initially (and still) available, given the emergency clearance.
However, as it became increasingly clear that there were serious and fatal side effects, efforts to make them public were very much silenced. Medical professionals and scientists were censored and removed from office simply because they shared their legitimate concerns.
Tel Aviv University study: Coronavirus variant affects vaccinated people 8 times more than unvaccinated
In August 2021, a large study from Israel revealed that the Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA shot is associated with a three-fold increased risk of myocarditis, leading to the condition at a rate of 1 to 5 events per 100,000 people. Other increased risks were also identified after the COVID-19 shot, including lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes), appendicitis, and herpes zoster infection.
Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist, is among many scientists who have warned that COVID-19 injections are not only failing but also endangering lives. According to McCullough, by January 22, 2021, 186 deaths had been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database following COVID-19 injection — more than enough to hit the mortality signal of concern to stop the program. And then to consider that only approx. 1-2% of all severe side effects and deaths ever get reported to VAERS.
However, by deliberately suppressing information, the media and Big Tech have made informed consent impossible. You simply cannot make an informed decision if only one side is allowed to speak and share information. Making matters worse, there is evidence that the agencies we depend on to ensure drug safety and protect public health are manipulating statistics and doing their own cover-up to boost vaccine use.
With data showing no difference in the number of COVID-19 cases among the vaccinated and unvaccinated, it increasingly appears that the injections pose a high risk with very little reward, especially among young people, whose risk for severe COVID-19 infection is extremely small.
Children who get the COVID-19 jab are at great risk
Due to the risk of myocarditis, the British Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI) has advised against COVID-9 injections for healthy 12- to 15-year-olds.
Meanwhile, the US FDA not only gave the green light to teens but also approved the Pfizer injection for children ages 5 to 11, despite strong objections from qualified doctors and scientists. As reported by The Defender:
“Many experts expressed sincere concern about the lack of safety and efficacy data Pfizer had presented for the use of its COVID vaccine in younger children, pointing to increasing safety signals based on reports to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). They also questioned the need to vaccinate children — whose risk of dying from COVID is “near nil” — at all.”
According to Dr. Meryl Nass, a member of the Children’s Health Defense scientific advisory panel, again, Pfizer did not use all of the children who participated in the trial for their safety study.
“Three thousand children received Pfizer’s COVID vaccine, but only 750 children were selectively included in the company’s safety analysis,” Nass said. Studies in the 5-11 age group are essentially the same as the 12-15 group.
In other words, equally brief and unsatisfactory, with inadequate safety and efficacy data, with no strong support as to why this type of immunobridging assay is sufficient… All serious adverse events were considered unrelated to the vaccine”…
Dr. Jessica Rose, the virus immunologist, and biologist told the panel that EUA of biological agents requires the existence of an emergency and the non-existence of an alternative treatment. There is no emergency and COVID-19 is very treatable,” Rose said.
In a peer-reviewed study co-authored by Rose, myocarditis rates were significantly higher in people ages 13 to 23 within eight weeks of the COVID vaccine rollout. In 12- to 15-year-olds, Rose said, reported cases of myocarditis were 19 times higher than the background rates…
Rose said tens of thousands of reports have been submitted to VAERS for children ages 0 to 18. Rose stated: “In this age group, 60 children have died – 23 of them were under 2 years old. And then consider that studies show that approx. 1-2% of all severe events and deaths ever get reported.
It is disturbing to see that “product administered to the patient of inappropriate age” was reported 5,510 times in this age group. Two children were inappropriately injected, presumably by a trained medical professional, and subsequently died.”
In an October 20, 2021 article, Paul Elias Alexander, Ph.D., a former assistant professor of evidence-based medicine and research methods, called the plan to vaccinate young children “absolutely reckless” and “dangerous based on a lack of safety data.” and poor research methodology.”
We also found that the FDA is ignoring and burying data on children seriously injured in the vaccine trials, further eroding confidence in the few research data out there. Meanwhile, the data shows that not a single child has died from COVID-19 who did not have serious underlying health conditions.
Vaccines don’t work – Israel records world’s highest number of Covid-19 infections despite 78% of the population being fully vaccinated
Mass vaccination drives the emergence of variants
Complicating matters, even more, is that there is evidence that the vaccinations lead to the development of mutations that result in variants with increased infectivity and antibody-evasive capacity. Apart from the declining effectiveness, this explains why the number of serious infections among fully vaccinated people continues to rise.
For example, a study posted to the preprint server bioRxiv on Aug. 23, 2021, warns that the Delta variant is “at risk of becoming completely resistant to wild-type spike vaccines.”
According to the authors, Pfizer vaccine antibodies could no longer neutralize the virus when four common mutations were made in the receptor-binding domain of the Delta variant. They also found that it had increased infectivity.
A Delta variant with three of the four mutations has already surfaced, suggesting it’s only a matter of time before a fourth mutation develops, at which point the virus would be completely resistant to the Pfizer shot.
Many have even warned of an immune escape due to the pressures placed on the COVID-19 virus in mass vaccination. Another study37 – based on a mathematical model – showed that a worst-case scenario can develop when a large percentage of a population is vaccinated but viral transmission remains high.
This is the scenario of choice for the development of resistant mutant strains, and that is exactly the situation the US and many other parts of the world are in right now. It’s time to recognize that the COVID jabs are not the answer. Natural immunity is. As the European researchers of the Journal of Epidemiology noted:
“Stigmatizing populations can do more harm than good. Importantly, other non-pharmacological prevention efforts (e.g. the importance of basic public health hygiene with regard to keeping a safe distance or washing hands, promoting more frequent and cheaper forms of testing) should be renewed to balance the between learning to live with COVID-19 in the same way we are still living 100 years later with various seasonal changes from the 1918 Influenza virus.”
Make your own risk-benefit analysis
Indeed, at this point, we know there is no reason to fear COVID-19. In general, the lethality is equal to that of the common flu. Provided you are not above 83 years of age and in a retirement home or have multiple comorbidities, your chance of surviving a COVID-19 attack is on average 99.74%. It really doesn’t get much better than that, unless you expect humanity to suddenly become immortal.
Should you develop symptoms, remember that there are several effective early treatment protocols to choose from, such as the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance I-MASK+46 protocol, the Zelenko protocol, and nebulized peroxide, detailed in Dr. David Brownstein’s case paper and Dr. Thomas Levy’s free eBook, “Rapid Virus Recovery.” Whatever treatment protocol you use, be sure to start treatment as soon as possible, ideally at the first onset of symptoms.
However, the reported death rate from COVID-19 injections in the national Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) is higher than the reported death rate from more than 70 vaccines combined over the past 30 years, and if you are injured by a COVID injection and if you live in the US, your only remedy is to seek compensation under the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Act (CICP).
Compensation by the CICP is very limited and difficult to obtain. In its 15-year history, it has paid out only 29 claims, less than 1 in 10. You’re only eligible if your injury requires hospitalization and leads to significant disability and/or death, and even if you meet the criteria, You must first use up your private health insurance policy before it pays out the difference.
There is no compensation for pain and suffering, only lost wages and unpaid medical bills. This means that a retiree is not eligible, even if he dies or ends up in a wheelchair. Salary compensation is limited in time, capped at $50,000 per year, and the CICP’s decision is not subject to appeal.
