      Vaccines help prevent infection by preparing the body to fight foreign invaders (such as bacteria, viruses, or other pathogens). All vaccines introduce into the body a harmless piece of a particular bacteria or virus, triggering an immune response. Most vaccines contain a weakened or dead bacteria or virus. However, scientists have developed a new type of vaccine that uses a molecule called messenger RNA (mRNA) rather than part of an actual bacteria or virus. Messenger RNA is a type of RNA that is necessary for protein production. Once cells finish making a protein, they quickly break down the mRNA. mRNA from vaccines does not enter the nucleus and does not alter DNA.

      mRNA vaccines work by introducing a piece of mRNA that corresponds to a viral protein, usually a small piece of a protein found on the virus’s outer membrane. (Individuals who get an mRNA vaccine are not exposed to the virus, nor can they become infected with the virus by the vaccine.) By using this mRNA, cells can produce the viral protein. As part of a normal immune response, the immune system recognizes that the protein is foreign and produces specialized proteins called antibodies. Antibodies help protect the body against infection by recognizing individual viruses or other pathogens, attaching to them, and marking the pathogens for destruction. Once produced, antibodies remain in the body, even after the body has rid itself of the pathogen, so that the immune system can quickly respond if exposed again. If a person is exposed to a virus after receiving mRNA vaccination for it, antibodies can quickly recognize it, attach to it, and mark it for destruction before it can cause serious illness.

      Like all vaccines in the United States, mRNA vaccines require authorization or approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before they can be used. Currently vaccines for COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, are the only authorized or approved mRNA vaccines. These vaccines use mRNA that directs cells to produce copies of a protein on the outside of the coronavirus known as the “spike protein”. Researchers are studying how mRNA might be used to develop vaccines for additional diseases.

      –have had all 4 shots.  No symptoms of anything, and no COVID antibodies.  I get tested once a month at DSA meetings (for free), which is required to attend, plus wearing masks.  No incidence of COVID there either.

        But no reason for anyone else to decline the shots.  Also there have been many reports of injuries from those shots, so, IMO, getting jabbed is a coin flip.  Not my thing.  Next door neighbors – she got the shot so she could keep her job, got Covid after that.  He  never got the shot, also never got Covid.

        However the mRNA jabs work, they are not, IMO, actually “vaccines”, and were declared vaccines in order to evade liability from injuries, plus to more easily get them on a vaccine schedule.  That last booster was tested on eight mice, FFS.  Pfizer did not want their test results available to the public for 75 years.  And I tend to distrust anything that Gates has had a hand in, too.  And then there was Fauci’s directive to stay home, if you got Covid, until you could not breathe, and then go to the hospital to die for the statistics, seems tome.

        I will take information about mRNA jabs from the guy who developed them – Robert Malone.  Disgusting and telling how when Malone explained why the jab would NOT protect anyone from Covid – and he has spent his career developing vaccines – he was immediately labeled an anti-vaxxer.

        Again – happy for your family, but that is no reason for me to get the jab.  No reason at all.  Like your family, my family has never gotten Covid.  But none of us got the jab, and even Pfizer admits that the jab does not prevent Covid.

        VFTBNMW is, IMO, literally "take the blue pill".

      Outside of our not seeing eye to eye on recent geopolitics, Dr.Campbell has been one of my 3 favorite people whom I trust to educate me on all things Covid-19 and it’s treatments.

      The other is Kim Iversen and to a far lesser degree Jimmy Dore.

      With over two years of history on their side, all three of these individuals have excellent track records in their interpretations of the Covid-19 pandemic and world governments handling/results of handling of the pandemic.

      Here is the very latest posted by Dr. Campbell regarding excess deaths but YouTube maintains a rich history of his almost daily discussions on the pandemic which I would direct you to for answers to your questions:

      Not in the same sense as smallpox, polio, measles, diphtheria vaccines are. They’re more like the flu shot, which most people rightly didn’t call vaccines until recently.

      We already know they don’t work as initially advertised by Fauci and Biden.

      They’re supposed to increase immune response, but they can’t increase immune response any more than actually having the virus and recovering from it.

      Because nothing can. That’s basic virology and immunology right there. Old, proven, tried and tested science. Not some scheme to make Big Pharma billions.
