You probably haven’t heard of Geert Vanden Bossche.
Unless you run in anti-vaccine circles…
Who is Geert Vanden Bossche?
Not that Geert Vanden Bossche is anti-vaccine (well, at least he says he isn’t…)
“As stated, I am not against vaccination. On the contrary, I can assure you that each of the current vaccines have been designed, developed and manufactured by brilliant and competent scientists.”To all authorities, scientists and experts around the world, to whom this concerns: the entire world population.
He just thinks that our COVID-19 vaccines, as good as they are, will lead to a global disaster, as they promote the creation and spread of highly infectious variants.
“When one follows the science,and nothing but the science, it becomes extremely difficult to not label ongoing mass vaccination campaigns as a crime, not only to public health but also to individual health.”Immediate cancellation of all ongoing Covid-19 mass vaccination campaigns should now become THE most acute health emergency of international concern.
He also seems to be against lockdowns.
And thinks he has a better solution!
“Last, a section will be dedicated to the scientific rationale for using NK cell-based vaccines that could provide sterilizing immunity and hence, wipe out Covid-19 and related variants all together.”Immediate cancellation of all ongoing Covid-19 mass vaccination campaigns should now become THE most acute health emergency of international concern.
Is he right?
“Vanden Bossche received his DVM from the University of Ghent, Belgium, and his PhD degree in Virology from the University of Hohenheim, Germany. He held adjunct faculty appointments at universities in Belgium and Germany. After his career in Academia, Geert joined several vaccine companies (GSK Biologicals, Novartis Vaccines, Solvay Biologicals) to serve various roles in vaccine R&D as well as in late vaccine development. Geert then moved on to join the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s GH Discovery team as SPO and later on to work with GAVI as Senior Ebola Program Manager; he subsequently joined the German Center for Infection Research as Head of the Vaccine Development Office. Geert is now primarily serving as a Biotech/ Vaccine consultant while also conducting his own research on NK cell-based vaccines. His work is driven by a relentless passion to translate scientific breakthrough findings into competitive vaccine products. As a creative thinker, innovator, entrepreneur and visionary, Geert has been invited to speak at multiple international congresses.”
Why don’t our vaccines reach the high-hanging fruit?
Is he developing an NK cell-based COVID-19 vaccine?
Should we stop vaccinating people in the middle of a pandemic that has already killed over 500,000 people in the United States alone on the word of someone who is board certified in Veterinary Virology, Microbiology and Animal Hygiene and hasn’t published a research paper since 1995?
Someone who has never published any research about vaccines?
“I founded Univac as inventor of a new vaccine technology which I subsequently further developed as CSO of the Company. The technology enables the development of universal vaccines educating the host immune system to redirect immune targeting away from canonical antigens to a widely divergent spectrum of vitally vulnerable pathogen-derived ‘self-mimicking’ antigens, irrespective of MHC polymorphism. Although ‘non-self’ and exposed on the surface of infected or pathologically altered cells, these antigens are not effectively recognised upon natural infection or disease.
This new type of vaccines harnesses the power of the immune system by unlocking the untapped potential of self-centered Natural Killer (NK) cells capable of recognising these unconventional antigens.”Geert Vanden Bossche, DVM, PhD LinkedIn Profile
Never published any research about vaccines, even though he supposedly invented a new type of universal vaccines based on NK cells…
Perhaps the same NK cell-based vaccines that he proposes should replace the COVID-19 vaccines we are using today? Does he have a patent on one of these vaccines or something???
Geert Vanden Bossche has a lot to say.
“Vaccine deployment in the ongoing mass immunization campaigns are highly likely to further enhance (adaptive) immune escape as none of the current vaccines will prevent replication/ transmission of viral variants.”Geert Vanden Bossche, DVM, PhD
But don’t let him scare you away from wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, or getting vaccinated and protected.
His concerns have been described as baseless.
“I’ve alerted all responsible health and regulatory authorities, including WHO, CDC, FDA etc. and have asked to consider my concern and to immediately open the discussion about the disastrous consequences any further immune escape of Covid-19 would have.
I know, of course, that current mass vaccination campaigns enjoy vigorous and world-wide support from a multitude of different parties/ stakeholders. However, unless I am proven wrong, this cannot be an excuse for ignoring that mankind may currently be transforming a quite harmless virus into an uncontrollable monster. I’ve never been that serious about a statement I made.”Geert Vanden Bossche, DVM, PhD
And it should be quite obvious to everyone that SARS-CoV-2 is much more dangerous than the “quite harmless virus” that Geert Vanden Bossche describes.
Plus, we already know that many of our vaccines do work against many of the new variants, although they are less effective against some new variants, and it is clear that experts are certainly not ignoring this issue.
“Understanding these dynamics helps to comprehend the sophisticated course of a natural CoV pandemic, how it eventually merges into an endemic infection and why human intervention has a highly detrimental impact on the refined interplay between the virus and its host.”Geert Vanden Bossche, DVM, PhD
Most importantly, we know the consequences if we listened to him and stopped the COVID-19 vaccination campaigns – millions more people would die, although Vanden Bossche is much more worried about continuing our plans to get everyone vaccinated.
“I am beyond worried about the disastrous impact this would have on our human ‘race’.”Geert Vanden Bossche, DVM, PhD
The answer, if immune evasion does become a bigger problem, is the development of next generation COVID-19 vaccines, not letting everyone get COVID-19.
