Why do some people think that covid vaccine shedding might be an issue?
Some new folks pushing misinformation about vaccines on Facebook and Instagram…
Shedding and COVID-19 Vaccines
Of course, shedding is an actual concern with some live vaccines, especially the oral polio vaccine and the smallpox vaccine, neither of which we use routinely in the United States.
And when shedding might occur in other vaccines that we do use more routinely, like FluMist, the rotavirus vaccine, or the rubella component of the MMR vaccine, it typically is not an issue for most people.
But that’s not the type of shedding that these folks are talking about.
They seem to believe that unvaccinated people are developing symptoms…
“When people talk about the shedding of the vaccine, a typical vaccine, measles, polio… That’s very different than the one we are referring to here. As Tiffany said, there might be some shedding going on because people in contact with people who have been vaccinated and they haven’t been vaccinated themselves are developing symptoms. So how can we possibly explain that?”Maureen McDonnell
Symptoms of what?
They seem to think that unvaccinated people are developing symptoms of COVID-19 and side effects of the COVID-19 vaccines, like lymphadenopathy and abnormal periods.
That somehow, COVID-19 vaccine side effects are contagious.
Through covid vaccine shedding.
How does that work?
“What we’ve been seeing, is a massive increase in those who have been given the injection of blood clotting problems, miscarriages, stillborns, infertility, strokes, heart attacks, autoimmunity diseases, and death. Just to name a few. And that’s in those who have been injected. So certainly, there should be a suspicion when you see people around the injected people who have not been injected getting the typical symptoms of COVID in addition to miscarriages, bleeding, irregular menstrual cycles, it should raise a very very strong suspicion.”Larry Palevsky
Of course, it doesn’t.
To start, no one is seeing a massive increase in any of those things.
Even blood clots, which might be associated with some of the COVID-19 vaccines, are still extremely rare. So certainly, there should be a suspicion that Larry Palevsky, the pediatrician who pushed the idea that the massive New York City measles outbreak in 2019 was caused by MMR shedding, doesn’t know what he is talking about!
After all, what is his theory?
It is that after you get a COVID-19 vaccine, your body gets the instructions to make the COVID-19 spike protein, starts making those proteins, but doesn’t know how to turn it off. So you end up making so much spike protein that it comes out of your sweat, saliva, and even your breath!
And you begin shedding so much spike protein, that others near you end up getting exposed, and they get sick.
Do you buy that?!?
What else is Larry Palevsky telling people?
He says that he has found that “the genetic instructions of the spike protein are not specific just to the SARS-CoV-2 virus.” He has found that they are similar to or the same to many other proteins. And that the antibodies the COVID-19 vaccines are inducing are targeting proteins all over our bodies, including the male and female reproductive symptoms.
How did he find this out exactly?
And can someone ask Larry why a natural COVID-19 infection wouldn’t do the same thing?
Of course, all of this has been debunked before.
“RNA is required for protein synthesis, does not integrate into the genome, is transiently expressed, is metabolized and eliminated by the natural mechanisms of the body and is therefore considered safe.”Phase I/II study of COVID-19 RNA vaccine BNT162b1 in adults
We know that the mRNA doesn’t last very long, so we wouldn’t be able to continuously make spike proteins. We know what’s in the COVID-19 vaccines, including the code of the mRNA in the vaccines, and that the vaccines aren’t altering our DNA. We also know that other proteins in the body likely aren’t being targeted after you are vaccinated and these vaccines aren’t causing infertility.
And it is a shame that it is getting new traction as we hear about blood clots (extremely rare and may be associated with platelet factor 4 antibodies) and women talk about problems with their periods, something that is still being investigated and hasn’t actually been linked to the COVID-19 vaccines.
“One fifth of female athletes have experienced a change in their menstrual cycle during COVID-19.”
Interestingly, even before COVID-19 vaccines became available, many women experienced changes in their menstrual cycle during COVID-19 lockdowns.
“What we’re seeing is in women who get the injection is a very large hundreds of percent increase in miscarriages and stillborns of their babies. All being reported to VAERS. And now what we’re seeing is that women who are around others who have been injected are having the same experience. Which has to raise the suspicion that not only does that messenger RNA make the body produce spike protein on an ongoing basis but that spike protein is probably shedding out of the breath, the saliva, the skin, and who knows where else in the body it is being shed from.”Larry Palevsky
Still, if worry about being exposed to spike proteins keeps these folks away from me, then maybe it’s a good thing that they believe in covid vaccine shedding…
Of course, this kind of misinformation is also scaring people away from getting vaccinated and protected against COVID-19.
“That’s only based on what we think we know is in these injections. But Dr. Tenpenny and I have discussed this on numerous occasions that there is potential for other messenger RNA proteins being injected into the body that would cause the body to make all sorts of proteins that we may not be aware of.”Larry Palevsky
And it’s sad that it’s coming from an actual pediatrician, who you would think would know better.
“Again, you will never hear me call these things vaccines, because they are not vaccines. They are not meant to protect us against a viral infection. They are meant to alter our genetic material. That is the intention of the patents. Read them. The intention of these injections is to permanently alter our genetic codes.”Larry Palevsky
Although he obviously doesn’t…
“It’s almost like we need to turn the tables on vaccine recipients. I mean, people who aren’t getting vaccinated are typically considered, you know, the outsiders… we’re in the wrong for resisting vaccines, but in actuality, it could be that the vaccine recipients are the ones creating the problem. So I don’t want to sound alarmist, but I certainly don’t want someone who has been recently vaccinated to live with me or be in close proximity to my children or grandchildren. This is really turning the tables scenario right now. ”Maureen McDonnell
While they might think that they are “turning tables” by going back to the myth of shedding, all they are doing is exposing their fringe thinking…
“I think we should be starting to ask people who have been injected with these materials to start wearing a badge, so we who have not gotten it can know to avoid them.”Larry Palevsky
And that they either don’t understand how vaccines work or choose to intentionally misinform people, as they talk about COVID-19 vaccine side effects and deaths in VAERS, which they claim are completely related to receiving the vaccine (they’re not!), that it is an experimental vaccine (they are well studied and have EUA), and that SARS-CoV-2 has a 99.7% recovery rate (with over 500,000 deaths in the US alone, including over 430 kids?!?), and can easily be treated (it can’t).
“There is no science, but what we are seeing is evidence. I have seen healthy people stay around those who have been injected, who then get the symptoms of COVID, which makes sense, because the spike protein is what’s making people sick in the natural infection.”Larry Palevsky
evidence example anecdote of the healthy people who he believes get sick from shedding. Isn’t it more likely that these folks, who you have to assume aren’t vaccinated, are just getting COVID-19?
After all, it isn’t the spike protein in COVID-19 that makes you sick. The spike protein simply helps the virus get into our cells. Once inside, the virus is translated into 29 different proteins, which are assembled into new viruses, and then infect more cells.
But when you get vaccinated, you just have the spike protein. There is no SARS-CoV-2 virus to take over cells, so even if this shedding somehow did happen, it wouldn’t cause any of the signs or symptoms of COVID-19 that Palevsky imagines.
So when someone gets sick, it’s not because of covid vaccine shedding and “spike protein poisoning,” something Palevsky isn’t sure happens, after saying it does.
“We don’t know what’s being shedded. [sic] We know we think that the spike protein is probably part of what’s being shed, but we do not know all of the ingredients that are in these injections. And so we don’t know what is coming out of people’s bodies in getting these injections.”Larry Palevsky
Something they could have avoided if they had simply gotten vaccinated and protected!
