Convincing scared RNA vaxxers


Recommended Posts

Heya, just wondering if anyone has some better google fu than me or science knowledge and wants to share the answers to 2 questions I thought might help those concerned with the new rna vaccines.  I am asking this due to some pro-vaxxers not wanting to get the new COVID vaccines due to timeframes of production.

It seems once you accept it is a different method than the previous trial and test of "get animal cells, expose to virus, after animal adaptive immunity and virus have at it... see if mutation is good" approach the timeframe from invention to release seems better to me.

1: What percentage of a whole complete functional virus is in an rna vaccine?  So from my understanding the new vaccines just contain the "spike protein" only of a functional "live" virus which is enough to train our adaptive immune systems to recognise it.  Looking at computer generated images from Electron Microscopy it looks a pretty small piece of the functional virus.  My idea for a 1 line argument is "I'd prefer to be infected with x% of a virus than the whole active, cell conquering beast..."

2: Most sane people think that the Polio vaccine is pretty sweet.  What portion of animal cell is left in the vaccine and injected into you?  Best I can find is "some traces may remain", of Monkey liver or cow cell.  lol.  I haven't come across any explanation of how to separate virus from culture after you grow your mutated virus and how successful that is.

I am polio vaccinated though and have urges to scratch my armpits so who knows, maybe I got more monkey than most?

Folks who’d rather get the nasty virus vs a day of side effects of a vaccine? At this point, dumbasses    gotta dumbass.

Thanks for your low-IQ answer...

Anyone with half a brain would question if there will be long term side affects from the vaccines as they are all two new for anyone to be 100/% certain. Then you need to assess the risk of not being vaccinated.

 

I felt more comfortable with Astra Zenica because it used a "tried and tested" approach to creating the vaccine and therefore have more faith that there will be no log term side-affects. I considered that various leaders unfairly demonised AZ and it should have been heavily promoted to all but the highest blood clot risk groups. 

Given that you have to sign an indemnity form when getting vaccinated, people should be asking questions before making an informed choice, rather than blindly following their leaders.

This isn't my area at all but would it sound more harmless and indeed more accurate to say

'by exposing our adaptive immune system to the spike protein of covid'?

'Causing our t cells to identify it more readily as an invader'. ?

Correct me if i'm wrong any budding or full blown immunologists : )

That's the end result.

The vaccine is a way to introduce the spike protein into our body.

I've actually had some luck by pointing out the obvious -  You don't have a choice anymore.  You're either going to get the vaccine or you're going to get the virus.  At least with the vaccine, you get to pick when.  You don't get to 'not play' anymore.   That choice ended a long time ago.

You can be mad about how we got here, but we're here.

Follow up with answering specific questions.  That worked twice.  So that's good.

Based on a microscopic sample, I had 4 friends have heart attacks last spring and I cannot remember any heart attacks among friends/connections going back more than 10 years. It did give me pause but did not stop me getting my second vaccination.

The mRNA vaccine actually causes some of your cells to generate the spike protein. Your immune system then trains to recognize it. There’s only a small amount of the vaccine at one time so a limited amount of the protein is generated. The vaccine doesn’t replicate, so once a cell has produced a batch of the protein it goes back to doing what it does or dies.

So what I don't get is the inability of anyone from either side to step off the dogma that justifies the decision they have made. There is lots of conflicting data and likely there will continue to be so. It will take time to really understand the long term implications of both Covid19 and the vaccines and until then most of us have made a decision for ourselves but damn it all, can't you still be curious?

All the people in my Radiation Oncology waiting areas were vaccinated.  Clear proof.   

Also 10 years ago my hair was not so gray.  I got vaccinated and it is gray. Clear proof.

10 years ago, the great philanthropist LE had the Americas Cup in his bedroom.  Then I got vaccinated and now GD has it somewhere.  Clear proof.

Thanks Razr - yes that makes sense.

Still the original concept I thought I'd try and make sound friendlier was:

Quote

...by infecting our cells with spike protein genetic material?

Causing our cells to make the spike protein?

When trying to defuse people's fears I think it's worthwhile to be careful with words.

A protein has no genetic material, and sure, while due to EpiGenetics (animal's response to environment) it will cause a change in our genome that change will be our bodies' immune response not some alien DNA being added.

The only "infecting with genetic material" that could occur would be with the complete functional virus, not the spike protein.  In fact that is an argument for vaccination rather than catching the functional complete virus to gain adaptive immunity.

2: Most sane people think that the Polio vaccine is pretty sweet.  

 

The polio vaccine used Thimerosal as a preservative (Mercury).    It is no longer used and the amount of Mercury in all the vaccines a kid would get back in the day was something like the same, or less, than a tuna sammich.   

But antivaxxers have latched on to Thimerosal and many believe that Mercury is still used in vaccines.   It isn't.  

But it's amazing to think that if people back then had today's internet with it's spread of misinformation about vaccines, it's safe to say we'd still have Polio today.   Ironic that the internet has ushered in a new Dark Age of information when it could have done the opposite.  Just look at the increase of people who believe the Earth is flat and vaccines contain nanobots.

The case fatality ratio for paralytic polio is generally 2% to 5% among children and up to 15% to 30% among adolescents and adults. It increases to 25% to 75% with bulbar involvement.

Why even treat children with medicines of any sort?  Those all have side effects and the kids can't give informed consent. Better to rely on natural hardiness. Will be good for the gene pool, too. [Sarcasm font]

Also, if we stopped trying to persuade the vaccine scared and freedumbs to get vaxxed and instead started the appearance of restricting access to vaccines, maybe they would demand their rights to have theirs. [ sarcasm but probably some would]

Sadly places like South Africa have lots of vaccine, much like the US and EU, but due to all the crap misinformation spewed online, like some posters here, most have chosen not to get vaccinated and here we go with another variant that will cause yet another major wave there and in neighboring states and eventually the whole world and lead to probably millions more dying unnecessarily, unless we are very lucky and Omicron does not cause as serious disease. US alone still has over 1000 deaths per day due to Delta infection in unvaccinated covidiots.

Who knows? Obviously there were more moron around than at first thought. Couple this with some bullshit on facebook and some ludicrous vids on youtube and bang! The global stupidity pandemic began. But unlike covid 19, there is no vaccine and never will be. Studies have shown that the most at risk are the disenfranchised, those without many teeth and mouth breathers. Symptoms include leaving caps lock on always and re-posting childish, humorless memes.

2: Most sane people think that the Polio vaccine is pretty sweet.  What portion of animal cell is left in the vaccine and injected into you? 

The mRNA vaccines have essentially no fraction of the COVID-19 virus, and no portion of animal cell. 

The J&J vaccine uses a “viral vector”, a harmless cold -type virus which cannot self-replicate, to carry a package of a DNA fragment which encodes part of the spike protein found on COVID-19. It is is grown and concentrated using embryonic retinal tissue many cell lines (hundreds?) removed from source tissue.

Sputnik and Astra Zeneca vaccines use a similar approach but use different growth media.

Viral vectors alter your own DNA as much as any insignificant cold might, one you never even noticed having.

In other words, they don’t.


mRNA vaccines are even less related to the target virus. In this case a synthetic nucleic acid (not DNA, but single strand messenger RNA) which practically falls apart once made, and so needs special super cold storage and special handling, is injected and cannot survive long inside any cell. It cannot reach the cell’s nucleus, where our DNA is stored, because it is degraded within the cytosol… the open area of the cell where organelles like ribosomes are found.

Ribosomes read mRNA and manufacture proteins based on the information encoded on the mRNA strand. In the case of the Pfizer and Moderna, this is a synthetic mRNA which causes the cell to produce spike proteins. Because this process essentially only happens in immunological cells because they are the only ones with affinity to the package, both cellular and humoral immunity is produced with almost no other cells being involved

These vaccines are, frankly, amazing. They can be synthesized in a few days, produced in mass quantities and show incredible efficacy. 

Truly, we are witnessing wonders of modern medical science.

Covid kills a fraction of that

Dr. Gundry spends most of his time these days flogging expensive supplements intended to reduce various types of inflammatory response.

This from Wikipedia:

Gundry writes articles for Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop website which has been criticized for promoting quackery.[25"

 

"Criticism[edit]

T. Colin Campbell, a biochemist and advocate for plant-based diets, states that The Plant Paradox contains numerous unsupported claims and denies that it makes a "convincing argument that lectins as a class are hazardous."[8] Robert H. Eckel, an endocrinologist and past president of the American Heart Association, argues that Gundry's diet advice contradicts "every dietary recommendation represented by the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association and so on" and that it is not possible to draw any conclusions from Gundry's own research due to the absence of control patients in his studies. Writing in New Scientist, food writer and chef Anthony Warner notes that Gundry's theories "are not supported by mainstream nutritional science" and that evidence of the benefits of high-lectin containing diets "is so overwhelming as to render Gundry’s arguments laughable".[26]

Gundry sells supplements that he claims protect against the damaging effect of lectins.[10][8][26][7] Although Today's Dietician acknowledges evidence that consuming lectins in some raw foods like kidney beans can be harmful, it concludes that "preliminary studies have revealed potential health benefits of lectin consumption and minute evidence of harm."[4]"

Rather few US towns had open sewers in the 1940s and early 1950s when there was a polio epidemic.

Polio is not a "gut disease." How can a "gut disease" cause crippled legs?

What does a medical clinician say when reading an article that states in bold letters that a life-saving and economy-improving vaccine increases markers associated with inflammation that correlate with acute coronary syndrome?

Hmm. Looks like Dr Gundry wants to get published income RWNJ and maybe get some speaking gigs, perhaps even a cushy "public health" officer type honorific from some southern Gov.

I certainly do not see science.

First off, its not an article, and its not peer-reviewed. It's a poster with some terrible data presented with error margins overlapping... its not clear that these inflammatory markers are significantly different. The PLUS method of "predicting" ACS only is 60% predictive in the first place, so this data is further suspect.... wait, no data was referenced or provided.

Nah, not gonna delve into this further. There's nothing like "prevents hospitalization and death" in the "results" section to get my attention. 

Telling folks, "but your inflammatory markers which kinda correlate with maybe having a slight increase in risk of heart problems in the next five years!" is weak sauce.

Vaccinating children and stunting  their immune system will  be a replay of the history of polio 


“Before the twentieth century, poor hygiene and sanitation meant that almost all children were exposed to poliovirus during infancy, which enabled natural immunity to build up in populations. The industrial revolution brought great sanitary improvements, including the separation of sewage from drinking water. While this proved vital in increasing public health standards in general, it  had disastrous effects in relation to polio cases. It reduced childhood exposure to the virus and lowered immunity levels in communities, creating the perfect setting for epidemics to ignite [3].”

Carrying this logic to the next step, let's just kill people who get sick.

Sure, it will really suck for the next couple of thousand years and it will be difficult to sustain civilization. But going beck to squatting naked in the bushes, eating grubs and berries, is a small price to pay for improving the human genome!

Would you please elaborate DSK? I am not sure what logic path led you to make this statement and am curious.
