BREAKING – Three studies published by the CDC, UK Government & Oxford University find the Covid-19 Vaccines do not work

By Daily Expose on • ( 60 Comments )

A graduate of Yale University who also obtained a PHD at Princeton University and an MD degree from the John Hopkins University School of Medicine has published a paper in which she concludes that mandating the public to take a vaccine is a harmful and damaging act because of excellent scientific research papers which clearly demonstrate the vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission of Covid-19.

Nina Pierpont (MD, PhD) published a paper on September 9th analysing various studies that were published in August 2021 which prove the alleged Delta Covid-19 variant is evading the current Covid-19 injections on offer and therefore do not prevent infection or transmission of Covid-19.

The Doctor of Medicine explained in her published paper that vaccines aim to achieve two ends –

  1. Protect the vaccinated person against the illness
  2. Keep vaccinated people from carrying the infection and transmitting it to others.

However, the Doctor of Medicine writes that herd immunity will not be reached through vaccination because new research in multiple settings shows that the alleged Delta variant produces very high viral loads which are just as high in the vaccinated population compared to the unvaccinated population.

Therefore, according to Nina Pierpont (MD, PhD), vaccine mandates; such as the one now enforced in the UK for all Care Home staff, have no justification because vaccinating individuals does not stop or even slow the spread of the alleged dominant Delta Covid-19 variant.

Which leads the Doctor of Medicine to conclude that natural immunity is much more protective than vaccination because all severities of Covid-19 illness produce healthy levels of natural immunity.

Nine Pierpont (MD, PhD) cites three studies whose findings and data support her conclusions and these include a study published August 6th 2021 in the Centre for Disease Control’s (CDC) ‘Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report’, another study published August 10th 2021 by Oxford University, and a final study published August 24th 2021 which was funded by the UK Department for Health and Social Care.

CLAIM ID 562923a1

Studies from the CDC, U.K. government, and Oxford University have deemed COVID-19 vaccines ineffective.

The Daily Expose is known to spread COVID-19-related misinformation. This article has misrepresented the conclusions of all three studies cited.

An article published on the U.K.-focused conspiracy site the Daily Expose quotes Dr. Nina Pierpont, a New York pediatrician who has previously advocated against wind turbines. Pierpont’s paper, “Covid-19 Vaccine Mandates Are Now Pointless” is flawed. Nevertheless, it has been used by several conspiracy sites to spread anti-vaccine narratives, including the Daily Expose.

The Daily Expose article claims that an analysis of various studies published in August 2021 proves that COVD-19 vaccines are ineffective against the Delta variant and that they do not prevent infection or transmission. However, even though the data quoted by the Daily Expose is accurate, the information has been taken significantly out of context.

The CDC study in question followed 469 COVID-19 cases in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, many of which were the Delta variant. The paper recommended expanded prevention strategies, including universal masking in indoor public settings, but does not allude to COVID-19 vaccines being ineffective.

The paper also details the limitations of this particular study: “Data from this report are insufficient to conclude the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines against SARS-CoV-2, including the Delta variant, during this outbreak. As population-level vaccination coverage increases, vaccinated persons are likely to represent a larger proportion of COVID-19 cases.” Furthermore, the paper states asymptomatic breakthrough infections might be underrepresented because of detection bias.

The Daily Expose has also misinterpreted a preprint paper by the Oxford University Clinical Research Group, which was published on August 10 in The Lancet. Pierpont claimed the study – which examined 900 hospital staff members in Vietnam – showed peak viral loads among the fully vaccinated infected group were 251 times higher than peak viral loads found among the staff when they were not vaccinated.

However, the study has not undergone peer review and did not compare vaccinated people infected with the Delta variant to their unvaccinated counterparts. Rather, it compared the viral loads of vaccinated hospital workers with the viral loads from early in the pandemic. An AP fact check found the study was designed to compare how different strains of coronavirus impacted viral load, not vaccination status.

The third study (funded by the U.K.’s Department of Health and Social Care) concluded that protection from either of the two most commonly used COVID-19 vaccines against the Delta variant of the coronavirus weakens within three months. Although Pierpoint points to some of the study’s conclusions, the paper also clearly suggested that the efficacy of the two vaccines studied would converge within 4-5 months after the second shot.

The findings of some of these studies are in line with several governments and organizations outlining plans to make COVID-19 vaccine booster shots. Contrary to Pierpont’s conclusion that vaccine mandates are a “potentially harmful, damaging act,” experts have agreed that while vaccines will not stop everyone from becoming infected, they do help reduce the severity.

3 CDC Studies Leave Little Doubt: COVID-19 Vaccines Work

September 11, 2021Frank Diamond

The data seem to give credence to the government’s push to get more Americans vaccinated against COVID-19.

The chances of unvaccinated individuals dying from COVID-19 are about 11 times greater than that for vaccinated individuals, and the 3 vaccines currently on the market are all effective against the delta variant, but Moderna’s is the most effective. On the heels of President Joe Biden’s announcement last night that the government will increase efforts to get hesitant Americans vaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today carpet-bombed the country with data in 3 studies that back up Biden’s initiative.

The 3 studies were published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).

Two of the studies include sections called “What are the implications for public health practice?”

For the study weighing the vaccines’ effectiveness against the delta variant the answer is: “Getting vaccinated protects against severe illness from COVID-19, including the delta variant. Monitoring COVID-19 incidence by vaccination status might provide early signals of potential changes in vaccine effectiveness that can be confirmed through robust controlled studies.”

For the study weighing the chances of death and/or hospitalization for unvaccinated individuals against vaccinated individuals the answer is: “To protect against COVID-19-related hospitalization, all eligible persons should receive COVID-19 vaccination. Additional studies are needed to understand differences in COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness across age groups.”

The study that found Moderna’s to be the most effective vaccine notes that “across all ages, VE [vaccine effectiveness] was significantly higher among Moderna vaccine recipients (95%) than among Pfizer-BioNTech (80%) or Janssen (60%) vaccine recipients.”

Collectively, the 3 vaccines were 86% effective in preventing hospitalizations. The data represent a real-world assessment of the vaccines in 32,867 patients in 187 hospitals and 221 emergency departments (EDs) and urgent care (UC) clinics across 9 states. The data were collected from June to August, “beginning on the date the delta variant accounted for >50% of sequenced isolates in each medical facility’s state,” the study states.

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, MD, said at a White House COVID-19 briefing today that “the bottom line is this: We have the scientific tools we need to turn the corner on this pandemic. Vaccination works and will protect us from the severe complications of COVID-19.”

The study that compares the 3 vaccines does not divulge why Moderna’s might be the most effective. Moderna has 3 times the amount of mRNA than the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and the interval between the shots is longer. For the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine it’s 3 weeks, for Moderna it’s 4 weeks.

The study that measures deaths and hospitalizations between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated states that in “13 U.S. jurisdictions, rates of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths were substantially higher in persons not fully vaccinated compared with those in fully vaccinated persons, similar to findings in other reports…. After the week of June 20, 2021, when the SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant became predominant, the percentage of fully vaccinated persons among cases increased more than expected for the given vaccination coverage and a constant VE.”

The study about how the vaccines fair against delta variant states that “protection against COVID-19–associated hospitalization remained high despite the emergence of delta as the predominant variant in the United States; protection was similar during periods before (February–June 2021; 84.1%) and during (July–August 2021; 89.3%) delta variant predominance. Recent reports have shown that COVID-19 vaccine protection against SARS-CoV-2 infection is lower in areas with increasing delta variant transmission….; however, protection against severe disease outcomes, including hospitalization, remains high.”
