Reports of plummeting vaccine effectiveness against current COVID-19 variants are proliferating. A new study assesses the viral load and risk of infection with COVID-19 is the same for a fully vaccinated person as it is for an unvaccinated person within just 180 days after the second vaccine dose. In the study, 84% of those testing positive in an Israeli hospital system were fully vaccinated.
The effectiveness of the 2-dose vaccines in reducing infectivity and viral loads was assessed from the 28th of June to 24th of August, 2021, by a team of scientists (Levine-Teifenbrun et al., 2021) using a sample of nearly 12,000 infected patients of Maccabi Healthcare Services in Israel.
About 84% (9,734 of 11,644) of those who tested positive during this period were fully (2-dose) vaccinated. Another 245 were infected with COVID-19 (“breakthrough infections,” or BTI) soon after obtaining the third “booster” shot – which only became available in the last month of the observation period.
The scientists report vaccine efficacy in preventing infection and severe symptoms precipitously declines after the first 2 months, and then it essentially “vanishes” within 6 months after the second shot. So, after just 180 days, a fully vaccinated person is no more protected against COVID than an unvaccinated person.
Furthermore, the researchers reported there was “no difference in Ct [cycle threshold, or viral load] between vaccinated and unvaccinated infected with Delta,” the most common COVID-19 variant during the June to August period.

57.3% of California health workers infected with COVID-19 since March were fully vaccinated
Israel’s vaccine rollout occurred about 1 or 2 months ahead of the vaccination schedule in the United States. Consequently, it wasn’t until July – about 4 months after the 2nd dose – that the vaccines’ effectiveness for the ~80% vaccinated University of California San Diego Health (UCSDH) workers began to rapidly disappear per a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
After the percentage of new cases in fully vaccinated workers averaged between 19 and 33% from March to June, this percentage exploded to 75% in the month of July – right about the time vaccine effectiveness is documented to all but “vanish”.

With Delta, infectiveness, viral load, transmission is no different for vaccinated vs. unvaccinated
Many have claimed that the vaccines offer lower viral-load protection from COVID-19 and its variants. But a new study (Servellita et al., 2021) reports the fully vaccinated (a) “were more likely than unvaccinated persons to be infected by variants,” (b) “symptomatic vaccine breakthrough infections had similar viral loads to unvaccinated infections,” and (c) the transmission of COVID-19 is as efficient for vaccinated infections as it is for the unvaccinated.

What is going on in Vietnam? Australia?
Something curious is occurring in countries that experienced very low COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths throughout the pre-vaccination stages of the pandemic.
Vietnam reported under 1,500 total cases and just 35 total deaths from March of 2020 to April of 2021. That’s a rate of about 0.09 COVID-19-related deaths per day.
Then a mass vaccination program began in Vietnam in late April (2021). By June, new cases began to percolate. By late August, Vietnam was enduring ~12,000 new cases per day and averaging 409 deaths per day.

Australia was able to escape most of the ravages of COVID-19 for the first year of the pandemic. Then, as in Vietnam, a mass vaccination schedule was implemented and Australia is now experiencing its highest number of new cases per day than at any time during the pandemic.
This wasn’t supposed to happen with vaccine rollouts. So what is going on here?

The COVID vaccines are falling apart faster than a cheap suitcase !
It was my opinion in early 2020 that viruses mutate, and there would never be a highly effective vaccine for COVID. Conventional influenza vaccines are 40 to 60% effective.
It was my opinion in early 2021 that vaccine side effects were unusually high, and I was not interested — if short term adverse side effects were so high, i couldn’t imagine long term adverse side effects being low.
I found out later that two people I know had moderate to serious side vaccine effects — both lasted three days — but never reported those to VAERS.
Recently I found out you are considered “unvaccinated until two wesks after your second Pfizer or Moderna shot. So you could dies of COVID 34 days after your first, of two, shots, yet you would be considered to have been unvaccinated, which I see as dishonest.
Then I found out that the vaccine induced antibodies are short term, and require booster shots, perhaps every six months.
Given that long term side effects are unknown, it is logical to believe that the more shots you take, the worse the adverse long term side effects are likely to be.
After three years, you could have taken 12 shots (4x per year) before finding out COVID vaccines cause micro-blood clots, or some other long term adverse effect completely unknown for years.
This all adds up to 14,000 IU of vitamin D per day for me … rather than a mediocre, at best, COVID vaccine.
The decision included the fact that as a child I had a serious allergic reaction to some vaccine, and on my doctor’s orders never had another vaccine, for the past 60 years … not even a smallpox vaccine.
The first fact to consider about COVID data accuracy is that “cases” determined with the PCR test, where there are no symptoms, include a lot of false positives.
Hospitalizations and deaths are more accurate counts … although they have problems too:
— Any respiratory illness called COVID by a hospital may result in higher insurance payments to that hospital, and
— Deaths of people in nursing homes were redefined in 2020 — the flu was never considered a cause of their death. Perhaps heart disease was listed as the cause, with flu listed as a contributory factor on their death certificate. But in Spring 2020, the CDC demanded that COVID be called the cause of death, and heart disease was called a contributory factor. Even worse, the definition of “COVID” was merely a positive (inaccurate) PCR test, or any symptoms of respiratory illness (which could have been many non-COVID diseases, such as conventional influenza.
Longer term side effects
Interview of Dr. Charles Hoffe MD from Canada.
Well, you’re lucky that Smallpox has been eradicated by vaccination.
We know viruses mutate. Which is why different strains of influenza predominate each flu season.
The rest of your post, is the usual junk, not Covid, it’s flu or something else as PCR tests are wrong bollocks,
You do realize that flu vaccines have been in use for decades and they haven’t reduced flu prevalence, much less “eradicated” influenza-like illnesses (ILIs).
Coronaviruses, which are ILIs, have also been known to exist for many decades. The last pandemic-caliber version of a coronavirus, SARS, also never had a vaccine developed to “eradicate” it. Why would this one be any different?
PCT tests have their place just not with viruses. The WMO recommended back in July they stop using ti at 40 cycles..
The High Court in Lisbon declared it unfit for purpose.
PCR tests!! not PCT
You could have remained quiet, Gallon, but decided to speak up and prove that you are a fool.
And I had to be a nervous Nellie and get vaccinated. What was I thinking??
STRESS CAN CAUSE MANY MEDICAL PROBLEMS.
YOU PROBABLY GOT SOME COVID PROTECTION FOR 3 TO 6 MONTHS,
AND REDUCED YOUR STRESS LEVEL
I did too, I also just picked up Horse paste ivermectin so don’t anticipate problems but who knows we live in a chaotic reality
I don’t know if this will help
Best not to take veterinary meds, as they sometimes have other additives in them besides what you want.
Ivermectin has been used on humans for a long time-
“It is now being used free-of-charge as the sole tool in campaigns to eliminate both diseases globally. It has also been used to successfully overcome several other human diseases and new uses for it are continually being found. This paper looks in depth at the events surrounding ivermectin’s passage from being a huge success in Animal Health into its widespread use in humans, a development which has led many to describe it as a “wonder” drug”
Ivermectin, ‘Wonder drug’ from Japan: the human use – NCBIhttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov › articles › PMC3043740
by A CRUMP · 2011 · Cited by 242 — It is used to treat a variety of internal nematode infections, including Onchocerciasis, Strongyloidiasis, Ascariasis, cutaneous larva migrans, filariases, …
Thanks, Richard. Perhaps I should have been clearer.I know that there’s Ivermeymafe for animals, and there’s Ivermectin made for human consumption. I was just suggesting he try to get what’s made for us and not animals.
I have a friend who said he’d been taking the vet product, but he could no longer get it on Amazon. I sent him the link to Frontline Drs, as well.
It if I thought I might die Nd I didn’t take the vet product….
I wrote a response last night, but it never made it. Basically, yes richard, Ivermectin is ok for people, but try to avoid veterinary paste. Note that I included an article on it, and how one might possibly get it from a pharmacy.
I have a friend who said he’d been getting it from Amazon, but the’ve stopped carrying it. They all want us to die, it seems.
Thanks for the additional info.
I also foolishly took the “vaccine.” Listen to Dr Zelenko…
…(esp near the end) where he says that we still have over the counter meds that can help. Specifically, Quercetin with Vitamin C and zinc, which we can get in health food stores and online. I think he mentions dosage there, but if not the Front Line Drs web site had it. ( I use the vitamin c crystals almost daily, and the zinc is in the eye meds my Dr told me to take. I don’t take Quercetin every day, just when I go out. If I get a sniffle I’ll up my game to the complete protocol. Vitamin D3 is important if you’re below 60ng/ml (American units), and B-12 and B-Compex is also important for optimal health, according to my sources.
Hopefully we’ll stay safe, and this contrived nightmare will be over soon.
There is much contradictory material being seen.
Maybe in another year, say 2025, they will get it figured out.
They have it figured out, John. That’s how they get it all so exactly wrong.
In Australia the introduction of the delta strain has caused an increase in case numbers and deaths. These cases and deaths are almost entirely amongst the unvaccinated and elderly. So far it is clear that the vaccines are working and giving good protection. The population and the government has responded and vaccination rates are increasing dramatically. However, most people have only been vaccinated recently only time will tell if protection lasts. Also AstraZeneca and Pfizer have been used, so we will see which vaccine performs better in the medium to long term.
The elderly have been most of those who die from COVID in 2020 and 2021.
Your conclusion that vaccines are giving good protection was contradicted in Israel several months AFTER lock downs were ended.
The real test is during colder weather (as in Australia) when people stay inside more … and AFTER the lock downs end.
Might as well quit while they are behind. Just stop.
The vaccines have limited efficacy, if any, not working like they should. Time to re-think it all. What is being done is no help. Adverse reactions are a real thing, including death. There is real fear out there, hence the hesitancy across the spectrum. PHD’s are not likely to get in line.
Sandhill cranes are flying in for the migration south, more geese in the neighborhood. Autumn is here soon. Another 1.5 inches of rain helped the corn and soybean crops considerably. The drought was here and gone for now.
Either the herd immunity theory is correct, or the human race is about to go extinct.
Hang in there, Pochas94. Don’t let them frighten you, or they’ll be more able to control you. Look for solid info from trustworthy sources. The more informed we are, the better we’ll be able to resist the insanity.
If the much more deadly 1918 to 1920 flu did not kill off the human race, then why would COVID?
We already have COVID21 (delta) and there will be COVID22,COVID23, etc.
COVID will be with us for the rest of our lives, just like the 1918 – 1920 swine flu is still around.
Virus mutations tend to be less deadly, and gradually more people get infected and develop antibodies.
Professor Norman Fenton – “We cannot trust any of the ‘official’ statistics driving the Covid-19 narrative.” –
The British government has been actively lying to the public since the beginning of this “pandemic”, as well as actively engaging in a planned campaign of fearmongering.
Orwellian indeed, and beyond imagination.
Similar things have happened in the US.
Thx for that link.
Professor Fenton isn’t the only one telling us that they are skewing the data and lying about the statistics. This, from a couple of Israelis (an engineer and a Dr, is pretty damning)
It seems no wonder those pushing the scam want to silence those telling the truth about it.
Looks like the delta variant is killing more vaxed than unvaxed in the UK –
The elderly people most likely to die from COVID probably have a high vaccination rate.
The fact that hospitalizations and deaths are rising in the summer months, when respiratory deaths deaths are usually low (even in 2020) is a big concern.
The vaccines wear off faster than anyone expected.
And they are less effective with COVID21, than with COVID19, in spite of the fact that coronaviruses tend to have minor mutations.
The reason the effectiveness of the “vaccine” is wearing off is multiple.
1 – it’s an immunization to only one fragment of the spike protein, producing short lived antibodies to it. (this is the source of symptom relief in some, giving the false impression that the “vaccine” is working).
2 – the spike is the fastest mutating protein of the virus. (The inoculations, including the “booster,” still target the original spike fragment, which, because of mutations, doesn’t exist anymore).
3 – it isn’t a vaccine, and cannot stop infection, only attenuate it in some, but doesn’t provide long term immunity in anyone.
4 – the inoculated are the source of resistant variants.
5 – the antibodies produced can cause ADE (antibody dependent enhancement), meaning an inoculated individual is ultimately at higher risk than the unvaxed.
6 – this type of inoculation can mess with your prior immunity, not just against COVID, but against some or all of what you were previously immune to.
I hope that helps. I think I’ve hit all the important points.
And don’t think those pushing it don’t know that. It’s all in the literature and/or textbooks, and some info has been for a long time. They aren’t stupid, just greedy and malevolent.
So is this another reason why they had to suppress HCQ and Ivermectin, because they have a more expensive, probably less safe, crappy alternative in the pipeline?
Israel has among the world’s highest levels of vaccination for COVID-19, with 78% of those 12 and older fully vaccinated, the vast majority with the Pfizer vaccine. Yet the country is now logging one of the world’s highest infection rates, with nearly 650 new cases daily per million people.
New normal: Israel’s health expert says fourth shot of Covid vaccine needed
People given both doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine were almost six-fold more likely to contract a delta infection and seven-fold more likely to have symptomatic disease than those who recovered.
Red Cross is warning all Americans that Covid-vaccinated humans are INELIGIBLE for donating plasma
Previous Covid Prevents Delta Infection Better Than Pfizer Shot
people who were vaccinated in January and February were, in June, July, and the first half of August, six to 13 times more likely to get infected than unvaccinated people who were previously infected with the coronavirus. In one analysis, comparing more than 32,000 people in the health system, the risk of developing symptomatic COVID-19 was 27 times higher among the vaccinated, and the risk of hospitalization eight times higher.
The results are good news for patients who already successfully battled Covid-19, but show the challenge of relying exclusively on immunizations to move past the pandemic. People given both doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine were almost six-fold more likely to contract a delta infection and seven-fold more likely to have symptomatic disease than those who recovered.
