“We are going to pay a huge price for this. And I’m becoming emotional because I’m thinking of my children, of the younger generation. I mean, it’s just impossible what we are doing. We don’t understand the pandemic.”
This was Geert Vanden Bossche during a recent interview with Dr Phillip McMillan. Bossche is one of the pre-eminent minds in the world when it comes to vaccines. He is an independent virologist who has worked with pharmaceutical companies GSK Biologicals, Novartis Vaccines & Diagnostics and Solvay Biologicals. He has also worked with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI) and the German Centre for Infection Research (DZIF). He is currently the Managing Director of VARECO. There is no one more highly credentialed than Geert Vanden Bossche.
During his interview with Dr McMillan, Bossche explains that “prophylactic vaccines should typically not be administered to people who are exposed to high infectious pressure”. He continues by saying that “if you have high infectious pressure, it’s so easy for the virus to jump from one person to the other”. Is Bossche saying that rolling out the vaccine during a pandemic will potentially do more harm than good?
In a recent letter to the World Health Organisation, and all of the stakeholders involved, Bossche discusses a “public health emergency of international concern”. In his letter, he outlines “why mass vaccination amidst a pandemic creates an irrepressible monster”. He then asks the key question: “Why does nobody seem to bother about viral immune escape?” These statements are highly concerning, especially from someone of Bossche’s reputation and standing within the vaccine industry.
What exactly is viral immune escape? Immune escape “occurs when the immune system of a human begin (“host”) is unable to respond to an infectious agent, or in other words that the host’s immune system is no longer able to recognise and eliminate a virus or pathogen… While vaccines are created to strengthen the immune response to pathogens, in many cases these vaccines are not able to cover the wide variety of strains a pathogen may have. Instead they may only protect against one or two strains, leading to the escape of strains not covered by the vaccine. This results in the pathogens being able to attack targets of the immune system different than those intended to be targeted by the vaccination.”
According to Bossche, immune escape can occur between the first and second doses of the vaccine. “If your immune response, however, is just mounting, as we see right now with the number of people who get their first dose, they get the first dose, the antibodies are not fully mature, the titres are maybe not very high. So their immune response is suboptimal, but they are in the midst of this war while they are mounting an immune response, they’re fully attacked by the virus and every single time… you have an immune response that is suboptimal in the presence of an infection, in the presence of a virus, that infected person, you are at risk for immune escape.”
Bossche explains that this is a “very, very, very dangerous thing” and that if “you do this in the midst of a pandemic, that is an enormous problem”.
Remember that Geert Vanden Bossche is a virologist who has worked with a number of pharmaceutical companies and organisations in the discovery and development of vaccines. When it comes to vaccines, his knowledge is unrivalled. This is a man whom the authorities should be listening to, not ignoring, as the WHO have done so far. When are governments and pharmaceutical companies going to take notice of these frightening warnings?
During the interview, Dr McMillan asked the simple question, “What do we do?” Geert Vanden Bossche had a very simple answer. “The virus needs to rely on a living cell. So you kill that cell. It’s gone, it’s all over. So we have the solution in the pathogenesis because some people eliminate it.”
How exactly do we kill that cell? Our own innate immune system. “NK (natural killer) cells get activated and they will kill… the cell… in which the virus tries to replicate.” Bossche explains that there is “increasing evidence that what in fact is happening is the NK cells are taking care of the virus”. This predominantly occurs in younger, healthier people that are asymptomatic or only suffer mild symptoms. “They eliminate the virus, they don’t transmit it”. There is increasing evidence that asymptomatic carriers don’t transmit the virus, which brings into question the testing of asymptomatic individuals. There is also increasing evidence that lockdowns have prevented the virus from spreading amongst young, healthy people, which in turn is creating more deadly variants of the virus.
This is where things get really interesting. The vaccines are designed to produce an antibody response to the virus. However, Bossche explains that many people who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms will shed the virus and then eliminate it. He says that there will be a “moderate and short-lived raise of antibodies… So the antibodies cannot be responsible for elimination of the virus” because the antibodies come later. This poses the question of why the general population should be encouraged to take the vaccine when our own innate immune system is capable of eliminating the virus, in most cases, on its own.
Our immune system is comprised of two parts: the non-specific (innate) immune system and the specific (acquired) immune system. The non-specific immune system attacks all pathogens equally, whilst the specific immune system is tailored to the individual pathogen. The vaccine induces specific immunity, as it is designed to produce antibodies to the spike protein of the virus. The enormous problem here is that these specific antibodies “out-compete” our natural antibodies. When they do this, they suppress our innate immune system against not only this virus, but all other viruses.
Bossche likens immunisation to “installing a new software on your computer”. The problem is “you cannot just erase this. So this is very serious. This is very serious.”
“When we vaccinate somebody, we are turning this person into a potential asymptomatic carrier that is shedding the virus.” However, this is not the major problem. “The problem I’m talking about is a global problem. It’s not an individual getting an adverse event. It’s a global problem of… making this virus increasingly infectious.” Bossche continues by saying that “we are very close to vaccine resistance right now”. This could have catastrophic consequences for humanity itself.
Bossche continues to discuss the dangers of “losing the most precious part of your immune system that you could ever imagine” – your innate immune system. He explains that the antigen-specific antibodies will out-compete the natural antibodies, resulting in “long lived suppression” of your immune system. “You may lose every protection against any viral variant or coronavirus variant… Your immunity has become nil. It’s all gone. The antibodies don’t work anymore.” This could be disastrous, as it may lead to a myriad of illnesses and potentially even death in the worst cases.
Bossche is pleading with authorities to “please use the right vaccine at the right place. And don’t use it in the heat of a pandemic on millions and millions of people.” This is exactly what governments the world over are currently doing. Are they making the biggest mistake of all?
In previous pandemics, we relied on natural herd immunity, rather than artificial vaccine-induced immunity. Bossche warns that this is a problem because “what we are now doing is that we are really chasing this virus and it becomes… increasingly infectious… This is a situation that is completely, completely, completely out of control.”
Geert Vanden Bossche concludes by saying that “it is about humanity… it’s about your children. It’s your family. It’s my family. It’s everyone.”
Governments, world leaders, pharmaceutical companies, big tech companies, mainstream media, doctors, scientists and anyone else involved has a responsibility to take note of Geert Vanden Bossche’s warnings. We must pay attention, and we must investigate these claims.
Is it possible that people who are vaccinated are not only inadvertently putting their own health at risk, but the health of everyone else at risk as well?
It is time to stop these mass vaccination trials. We are potentially creating variants of the virus through vaccinations. We are potentially destroying our own immune systems in the process.
The potential effects of these vaccines are irreversible. It will be too late in 1, 2 or 5 years time. We need to answer these questions now. These questions should have already been answered. This is why vaccine trials are conducted thoroughly prior to rolling out a vaccine to general population.
All of these questions need to be answered before it is too late. Let’s hope that it isn’t already too late.
