Physician Explains Why No Improvement in COVID Case Rate with Increasing Vaccination

European Journal of Epidemiology Researchers study COVID levels across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States

By Katy Grimes, November 1, 2021 2:15 am

A California physician familiar with the Globe has over the course of the COVID pandemic provided information and explanations about the virus and treatments, along with questions about the efficacy and longevity of the vaccines, and more recently, breakthrough COVID cases of the fully vaccinated. This physician has also shared his questions of State and County Public Health Officers’ vaccine mandates, boosters and lack of treatment options in hospitals.

Here is what he most recently explained to the Globe about why increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination:

“An article from European Journal of Epidemiology shows no improvement in case rate with increasing vaccination,” the physician said. “In fact if there is any association, more cases look to be associated with higher vaccination rates.”

“This would likely be due to Antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) where previously neutralizing antibodies generated from the vaccination against the original wuhan variant spike protein now enhances infection in the delta variant.”

“A layman’s way of explaining the idiocy of booster shots is as follows:  we give different flu vaccines each year based on the predicted mutations it will have, but we never just give last years vaccine for the flu.  Giving boosters of the same COVID vaccine is like giving last year’s or the year before flu vaccine for this year’s flu season. The effect will be minimal since there have been so many mutations at the spike protein.”

The article from European Journal of Epidemiology found:

“Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States.”

“At the country-level, there appears to be no discernible relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days (Fig. 1). In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.”

“Across the US counties too, the median new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in the last 7 days is largely similar across the categories of percent population fully vaccinated (Fig. 2). Notably there is also substantial county variation in new COVID-19 cases within categories of percentage population fully vaccinated. There also appears to be no significant signaling of COVID-19 cases decreasing with higher percentages of population fully vaccinated (Fig. 3).”

In September, the physician drafted a letter to the Contra Costa County Public Health doctor, concerned about breakthrough cases of COVID.

“My last evaluation of Contra Costa County stats shows a 7 day running average that 30% of all  positive cases are in the fully vaccinated,” he told the Globe. “And it is likely worse because only vaccinated patients who go in the hospital are supposed to be counted as cases.”The physician sent Contra Costa County Public Health Officer Dr. Farnitano an email asking him to clarify those numbers. “Crickets,” is what he received back.“I have been challenging my administration to publish our numbers of vaccinated patients because they say only 1/20 patients admitted are vaccinated,” he said. “I showed them Contra Costa County numbers and said this doesn’t add up. And I added, ‘If you want the 1000 John Muir employees to be vaccinated that are not, you may help alleviate their fears by publishing these numbers.’ It has to be easy to do so, but they are resistant.”

The physician wrote a letter to his medical colleagues saying he had “serious ethical reservations regarding forced vaccinations of their medical colleagues arising solely from the emerging scientific evidence regarding a significantly eroding benefit/risk ratio of all the current vaccinations against SARS-COV2.”

He said many health care providers fall into an extremely low risk cohort from the disease itself, and therefore any vaccine has to show clear benefit over the index disease.

He expressed concern over the “eroding benefits of the vaccine,” the proof of which is provided by well-vaccinated countries like Israel and the United Kingdom, and the increasing number of breakthrough covid cases of the fully vaccinated. The vast majority of covid cases in these countries is from the delta variant. It is reported that over 85% of people over the age of 30 are fully vaccinated in Israel yet their hospitals have equal or higher numbers of fully vaccinated patients than unvaccinated patients.”

He goes on to explain that the Delta Variant is a SARS COV2 virus with multiple mutations of the spike protein. “Unfortunately, the original Wuhan wild type spike protein is the only site for which all EUA vaccinations stimulate an immune response. Together, these changes in immune tolerance/enhancement to the delta variant account for the markedly rising rates of breakthrough infections seen in Europe/Israel and now in the United States including Contra Costa County,” he said.

European Journal of Epidemiology (2021).

“This was predicted by many scientists warning against mass vaccinations DURING a pandemic (which has never been done like this before),” the physician said.

“In short, vaccines that are still directed toward the original wild type Wuhan variant spike protein cannot be expected to provide any significant sustained immune recognition to the Delta Variant. This seems quite obvious clinically.”

He concluded that mandating vaccination or boosters with the same vaccines is “extremely unethical as is forcing vaccinations, or discriminating between vaccinated and unvaccinated employees at our institutions.”

“We are called as physicians to do no harm. I have offered the scientific mechanisms above,” he wrote. “We are called to follow this science regardless of what guideline or mandates our policymakers instill upon us. We are called to respectively refuse to enforce this mandate and cannot let the influence of policymakers get in the way of sound scientific judgement. It is our ethical duty,” he said.

The physician, who is fully vaccinated, shared this letter with the Globe and asked if we had heard this from other doctors. We have, but most cannot or will not be quoted out of fear of retribution.

The conclusion of the European Journal of Epidemiology: “The sole reliance on vaccination as a primary strategy to mitigate COVID-19 and its adverse consequences needs to be re-examined, especially considering the Delta (B.1.617.2) variant and the likelihood of future variants.”

“In summary, even as efforts should be made to encourage populations to get vaccinated it should be done so with humility and respect. Stigmatizing populations can do more harm than good.”

  1. Mass covid vaccinations, including now children, are nothing more than an authoritarian power grab, done with no regard to the facts. Herd immunity is going to end this virus, which we would have achieved by now if not for the moronic shutdowns, which only postponed the inevitable.

    1. ‘herd immunity’ is as plausible now with covid19 as it was during the days of the black plague – it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever and will result in millions of premature deaths. I actually believe many of these conspiratorial types should run out and get their hands on fluvox for covid treatment as it appears to be very effective at arresting mortality rates and it might also help with ‘the crazies’.

  2. An important question I did not see addressed here, is whether there is a difference in outcomes. My impression is that the vaccine and booster do not prevent infection as hoped, with the current variant. But is there a difference in hospitalization and death? Also, I’m under the impression that early treatment is a remedy that did not exist at first. That may also affect outcomes.

  3. “Follow the money.” I don’t know if it’s an authoritarian power grab as much as Pfizer, Moderna, etc want the money promised them by the government under “Operation Warpspeed.” Trump, I think, truly wanted to develop a vaccine to cure this disease but was naive about the technical capacity for that with a mutating virus. The fact he went silent on HCQ, ivermectin, etc. is rather curious to me, however. He caught it, was treated and cured before any of these “not-a-vaccines” were available.

    Biden on the other hand, is as corrupt a DC politician as they come so I have no doubts his gang’s palms are getting greased by Big Pharma in one fashion or another.

    Natural immunity is a threat to the money flow in this situation.

  4. “My impression is that the vaccine and booster do not prevent infection as hoped, with the current variant. But is there a difference in hospitalization and death?”

    It would be impossible to tell whether or not if you’re “vaccinated” with the covid gene therapy drug you would have gotten more sick after inevitably becoming infected with covid than if you had not been. The subject is so politicized that it is also nearly impossible to trust any data that is produced by the government or those associated with pharmaceutical companies on this point.

    My guess is no. It doesn’t make a difference to how severe your illness is whether you receive a shot or not,but I base that on the fact that they are claiming that it does and they lied about “2 weeks to flatten the curve”, “get your shot and you can take off your mask”, “we’re not going to try to do a covid passport,that’s crazy talk”, “if you get the vaccine,you can’t get covid”, and “if you get the vaccine,maybe you get covid but you can’t DIE of covid”.

    Since they lied about all of those things,basically every single tenet of the current war against the cold and flu virus and the concomitant reasons for forcing everyone to live in a police state,it’s reasonable to assume that they are lying about this as well. Whatever the experimental gene therapy drug they are injecting everyone with does,it doesn’t protect you from the cold and flu virus,a.k.a. coronavirus, in any way,shape,or form and was never designed to.

  5. Katy, thank you for this important piece.
    I hope it reaches many readers.
    The doctor did a great job explaining why mass vaccination DURING an outbreak is risky Sadly, we are beginning to see the ramifications. The long term side effects are yet to be seen. According to Pfizers own documentation, this mRNA biologic shot has only been approved for EUA, it has not been fully approved here in the states.

    We are not living in a free society when medical doctors are AFRAID of retribution for sharing their medical opinion. I guess second opinions at any level are now forbidden? In my experience second opinions in many cases SAVE lives.

    Thank you to the doctor who relayed this information. I hope that very soon you are able to practice patient based medicine and not be beholden to Big Pharma and the corrupt government apparatus.

  6. Despite what this physician claims to know, everyone should still get vaccinated. There is no reason not to.
    This winters surge is probably going to be so much worse then last year. Hopefully our excellent governor will do the right thing and lockdown the state again. It is truly a matter of life or death.

      1. Hypothesis? Its a known fact. Nearly every health professional says the winter surge is coming.
        Since you are “Fed up with Governor Frat Boy”, why don’t you move to a red state where the repub governor is letting hundreds die of Covid every day.

    1. Gavin, is that you???

      No one else would be that stupid to post the comments that you did, and no one would call you an “excellent governor” except you, either….

      Otherwise, go get all your boosters and you can have ours too, if that makes your fearful little self FEEL better…
      We all know how you libs live your life by your FEELINGS, completely devoid of any logic…

      1. CA globe is a right wing propaganda website. That needs to be made clear to everyone.
        btw, repubs like you are devoid of any intelligence.

    2. Waiting on your data W16521.

      Meanwhile do your research on Florida. It is clear that you like to classify everything in red and blue. There are many more colors on the spectrum by the way.
      Check this out:
      And this:

      I suppose you are one that just likes to repeat CNN soundbites, your choice of course.
      What attracts you to medical tyranny?

  7. I appreciate your addressing this, and the good doctor trying to make sense of the data, however….
    Let’s cut to the chase. The ‘virus’ which has never been isolated was created to introduce the vaxx. It’s intention is to genocide the weak and vulnerable (1st shot, lose 40% immune system; 2nd shot, additional 25%; booster contains strands of HIV to wipe out remaining immune system); surviving population to become ‘transhuman’, for which there is also a patent. HCQ and Ivermectin kill the parasites, also part of the vax (see Dr Franc Zalewsky video). Graphene oxide (black goo) intended for control through 5G. People who have taken HCQ, Ivermectin, NAC (glutathione), quercetin, zinc, D3, C, or monoclonal antibodies, have recovered within hours, zero side affects. Vaxxed, not so much: Blood clots, heart attack, stroke, bells palsy, neurodegenerative issues, chronic fatigue, etc. Warning: on page 14 of Pfizer paperwork, ingredients have been altered for children to
    minimize myocarditis, heart attacks, strokes? Have your seen autopsy videos, blood is completely clotted. Deagle.com shows 330bil US population reduced to 100bil by 2025.
    Hospitalized giving Remdesivir (kidney and renal failure) + Ventilators are killing people (Tom Renz, atty)
    Respiratory therapists have spoken out. Hospitals subsidized $42k for each death.

  8. W16521. You are such a special citizen of California. Your so well behaved, you always do as your told, never questioning anything, never complaining about rights or freedoms. These people that refuse the shots or hate lockdowns will never understand how much the government loves and cares for its citizens like you do. You are wasting your time trying to convince these people on sites like this. Unlike you, these stupid people don’t put blind faith in what the government says. You are right to want and love lockdowns. Even though your vaccinated the lockdown is the only way to keep you safe. Thank you for being such a good role model. We know you will be first in line to get the boosters (you can mix and match them ). Even though they do not prevent you from getting the disease or spreading the virus and you will need boosters since they do not protect you for that long, the vaccines are the only thing that will keep you safe. You already know all this W1652, your as smart as they come.

      1. Humble, too…
        And judgmental…
        Just like most liberals…and overly emotional…

        Oh, but you’ll all blather on about how much smarter and virtuous you are than everyone else… They call it NARCISSISM….

        Get help for it….

  9. The experimental COVID-19 mRNA “vaccines” never promised immunity in the legal papers someone must sign to receive the experimental jabs. Instead, it said it might lessen COVID-19 symptoms. The propaganda media reports Big Pharma propaganda as facts, but when it comes to the legal forms a person signs to receive the experimental jabs, it’s NOT in writing. Furthermore, if you take the experimental COVID-19 mRNA toxic concoctions, you assume 100% of all health risks and financial liability if you die or have an adverse reaction. Yet, big Pharma enjoys 100% immunity from lawsuits and making billions of dollars on their experimental toxic concoctions. LET’S GO, BRANDON!
