(LifeSiteNews) – A new study has found that Moderna’s COVID shots increase over time the likelihood of infection with the predominant Omicron subvariants of COVID-19.
According to the Moderna-funded preprint study, vaccine effectiveness against the recent Omicron strains BA.2, BA.2.12.1, BA.4, and BA.5 infection was initially “moderate to high” after the three COVID mRNA shots, including a booster, but then “waned rapidly” and “disappear[ed] beyond 90 days for all subvariants.”
The mRNA shot’s effectiveness against BA.2, BA.4, and BA.5 “went negative after 150 days,” and against BA.1.12.1, became negative after 91 days,” according to The Epoch Times. This means Moderna’s mRNA injection actually increased the likelihood of COVID infection after that time period, according to the study.
The only strain against which the jab was found to retain any protection beyond 150 days was the initially dominant Omicron subvariant BA.1. Researchers estimated that the jab’s “effectiveness” “remained above 50 percent” against the strain after that time period, the Times shared.
While researchers attempted to minimize confounding factors such as by adjusting for comorbidities, they argue that the jabs’ negative effectiveness “could be due to differential risk behaviors among vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals when protection from antibodies becomes minimal.”
Study author Hung Fu Tseng, a researcher with Kaiser Permanente Southern California, has declined to comment on the study until it is accepted after review by a journal.
The finding that the mRNA jabs actually increase the likelihood of COVID infection over time have been corroborated by other studies, including one recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine that found that the effectiveness of Pfizer’s mRNA jab became negative over time for children age 5 to 11.
An analysis of data presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on September 1 also found that COVID vaccine effectiveness has been much worse against the Omicron variants than earlier strains, with estimates indicating negative effectiveness for the jab after about six months.
A preprint study from Sweden further supported the observations that the COVID shot actually increases likelihood of infection over time.
“Somewhat implausibly, we even observed a negative vaccine effectiveness against Omicron infection from week 14, indicating that vaccinated individuals experienced a higher risk of infection than those unvaccinated,” they wrote in a preprint paper.
BMJ editor Peter Doshi authored a paper (pre-print) further showing that both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s jabs were more likely to hospitalize individuals due to serious adverse events from the shots than protect them from serious injury with COVID.
The risk of post-vaccine injury was so great that the authors concluded that there was “no evidence of a reduction in overall mortality in the mRNA vaccine trials.”
The latest data from the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows that 1,437,273 adverse injury reports have been lodged against the COVID jabs, with a total of 31,470 reported deaths after COVID “vaccination,” and 180,382 reported hospitalizations.
