Dr. Peter McCullough wrote Monday that, contrary to the narrative of government officials who claim the unvaccinated must have no choice but to get the jab, the already vaccinated are the people who are in “crisis.”
In the introduction to his podcast, The McCullough Report, at America Out Loud radio, the internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist, noted the vaccinated have indeed become “persons of interest.”
Our CDC director and recent studies have shown that the vaccinated not only can become ill will COVID-19 in the setting of vaccine failure, but they can also carry the virus in very high viral loads in the early symptomatic phase and, in this context, can become individual super-spreaders. So indeed, we are in a crisis of the vaccinated, who directionally have lower rates of COVID-19 illness but are passing it to unvaccinated victims who develop the syndrome.
The Delta outbreak is more massive than the “experts” expected, but mortality rates are low, McCullough noted. However, the CDC and its allies in the media have generated the narrative that the Delta outbreak is a “crisis of the unvaccinated.”
“Never has the world felt a crisis that has been self-created and self-imposed,” the champion of early treatment wrote. “In many ways the pandemic response has been more injurious than the respiratory infection itself.”
The messages from the nation’s top public health officials are, at best, contradictory.
On August 18, in a joint statement from HHS Public Health and Medical Experts on COVID-19 booster shots, the officials asserted:
The COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States continue to be remarkably effective in reducing risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, even against the widely circulating Delta variant.
However, at the end of the same paragraph in which they tout the shots are “remarkably effective,” the health officials state:
The available data make very clear that protection against SARS-CoV-2 infection begins to decrease over time following the initial doses of vaccination, and in association with the dominance of the Delta variant, we are starting to see evidence of reduced protection against mild and moderate disease. Based on our latest assessment, the current protection against severe disease, hospitalization, and death could diminish in the months ahead, especially among those who are at higher risk or were vaccinated during the earlier phases of the vaccination rollout. For that reason, we conclude that a booster shot will be needed to maximize vaccine-induced protection and prolong its durability.
The public health officials boasted their “top priority” is to get ahead of the COVID virus to protect Americans “with safe, effective, and long-lasting vaccines.”
Notably, they fail to mention the logical step of protecting Americans with early treatment interventions.
Finally, the officials “emphasize the ongoing urgency of vaccinating the unvaccinated in the U.S. and around the world.”
On the same day as the joint statement, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Americans who received a COVID vaccine early are at an increased risk for severe disease.
“We are seeing concerning evidence of waning vaccine effectiveness over time and against the Delta variant,” she said.
Ironically, the CEO of Pfizer said in an interview with Fox News Monday that he ultimately expects a COVID variant to emerge that will be resistant to vaccines.
“Every time that the variant appears in the world, our scientists are getting their hands around it,” Albert Bourla told Fox News’ America’s Newsroom. “They are researching to see if this variant can escape the protection of our vaccine. We haven’t identified any yet but we believe that it is likely that one day, one of them will emerge.”
In a recent interview with LifeSiteNews, however, McCullough contrasted with the statement, “Natural immunity is robust, complete, and durable.”
There is no meaningful chance of having a second serious case of COVID – in fact it’s never happened in a confirmed case so far in the world. Any of the reported cases that have come up involve misinterpretation of a false positive PCR test. It doesn’t happen. If it did happen, we would have seen thousands, if not millions, of people being hospitalized, the same person being hospitalized over and over again for new cases of COVID-19. It hasn’t happened. It fundamentally doesn’t happen.
“Natural immunity … cannot be improved upon by vaccination or any other method, so someone who’s naturally immune can walk up to somebody with COVID-19, get a big cough in the face, and they’re not going to get the illness,” he stated.
On OAN’s Real America with Dan Ball on August 17, McCullough stressed vaccine mandates and passports are “ill-advised”:
We have data now of vaccine failures that are really pouring in. And I’ll just read you the data the Israeli authorities are telling us, that we have 86% of patients with COVID-19 in Israel … 15,634 cases, 86% of them are fully vaccinated.
McCullough said the data from Israel are just one “obvious signal” that “the vaccine is not fully protective, and it can’t be our only method of responding to the pandemic.”
He then explained why the vaccines are not working and why the vaccinated are truly in “crisis”:
We’ve always had the variants, we’ve always had an array of strains. So, six months ago in the United States we had 14 different strains. What happens when we vaccinate, we cause what’s called a non-lethal evolutionary pressure, and we allow a dominant variant to move forward. So, in this case, Delta was the dominant variant … Now, nearly in the United States it’s 100% Delta. We’ve never had this before.
“[T]he vaccine is setting people up to be … kind of super spreaders,” he asserted.
