While many COVID restrictions have been dropped in recent months, many companies and universities are still enforcing vaccination mandates for new recruits or students.
Despite clear and substantial evidence that vaccines do not prevent the spread of the virus, administrators have staunchly refused to change course on the mandates.
Whether out of a desire to avoid admitting they were wrong or out of willful disregard for reality, these pernicious policies have continued to affect tens of millions of people.
Now, a new pre-print study involving a systematic review and analysis of secondary data conducted by Italian researchers has attempted to academically measure the effectiveness of vaccines against Omicron.
While many have acknowledged that the two-dose vaccination series no longer protects against symptomatic infections, as recently as December 2021 Dr. Fauci claimed that boosters were 75% effective in preventing Omicron-induced symptoms .
The researcher’s findings do not bode well for the nation’s top public health “expert” and those who call on him to justify their open-ended terms.
In direct contradiction to Fauci and other “experts,” the study results suggest less than 20% vaccine efficacy against infection and less than 25% against symptomatic disease after just a few months:
“We found marked immune evasion associated with Omicron infection and symptomatic disease, both after two and three doses. The half-life of protection against symptomatic infection provided by two doses was estimated to be 178-456 days for Delta and 66-73 days for Omicron. Booster doses restored VE to levels comparable to those acquired shortly after administration of the second dose; however, a rapid decline in booster EV against Omicron was observed, with less than 20% EV against infection and less than 25% EV against symptomatic disease at 9 months after booster administration .
Importantly, the FDA’s threshold for authorizing COVID vaccines was 50% effective in preventing the disease.
Not only is the initial two-dose series unable to maintain that standard, but the booster dose, which Fauci said was meant to “keep people healthy,” quickly fades to half that percentage against symptomatic disease.
Of note, their review of the evidence excluded studies that measured antibody levels to calculate efficacy, since the FDA licensed vaccines for young children based on antibody production:
“Regulators allowed vaccine makers to infer efficacy by demonstrating that vaccines could elicit levels of antibodies similar to those that protected adolescents and young adults, a concept known as immunobridging. This helped speed up testing.
Instead of the FDA desperately hoping that antibody levels would lead to high efficacy rates, this research demonstrates the exact opposite.
Also remember that Moderna claimed its vaccines were “100% effective” in adolescents, and Fauci said in an interview that they were “virtually 100% effective.”
In light of this, it is impossible to reasonably defend recall mandates for healthy students or for employees based on “protecting the health and well-being of others.”
There is little or no protection against infection by the dominant variants, demolishing any claims of necessity for warrants.
Either way, however, it seems doubtful that any of the supposed “experts” or their partners in the media will back down on past claims in light of new research showing that their estimates were hopelessly incorrect.
