Michael Yeadon, Clarifying Immunology in a COVID World
To get to the root of the COVID (SARS-CoV-2) “pandemic” requires understanding the scientific and medical data that underlies it. Mike Yeadon was CSO and VP of Allergy & Respiratory Research and Head of Pfizer Global R&D from 2006-2011. His 32-year immunology career and his rise to the top of Pfizer give Yeadon a unique perspective. Yeadon is not anti-vaccine, nor is he anti-Big Pharma. He asserted the efficacy of pharmaceutical advances to prolong and improve life and was intimately involved in creating and promoting such advances. He is ethically pro-science and truth. This background makes him stand out amid the COVID confusion and a go-to source for understanding it. Yeadon is a calm voice of reason in a squall of pandemic noise.
Based upon his scientific and immunology background and reinforced by his ethical conscience, Yeadon has been speaking out against governments’ reaction to the COVID “pandemic.” After analyzing the initial medical data, he quickly realized that it is not medically or scientifically possible to support lockdowns, masks, untested vaccines, or any resulting collateral economic and human destruction.
Yeadon has a series of videos and interviews here and here where he goes into great detail about the reality of coronaviruses, pandemics, and the human immune system. There are so many issues with disinformation and its impact on society that the COVID “pandemic” requires a clean slate of understanding. Yeadon provides the foundation through scientific and immunological knowledge.
There’s no requirement to understand the molecular structure of disease and our immune system, but a basic understanding of immunology related to viruses provides a background for properly understanding COVID. This requires a few basic facts. Yeadon elaborates on COVID based upon his perspective as a UK citizen and the UK’s response.
Yeadon describes that typical flu/coronavirus transmission through a population occurs in a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 4 months. We are told that COVID is more contagious than normal flu, so the transmission should occur more quickly than normal seasonal flu. COVID became apparent as a new virus infection in February 2020. Based on historical transmission rates, by May, it had run its course. The lockdowns occurred at the end of March. By then, the peak was in, and the rate of infections was declining. Yeadon states that COVID was self-limiting due to a substantial degree of prior immunity. The lockdowns are ineffective as a preventative. However, they are extremely effective as a means of incurring economic and psychological damage.
Yeadon explains cross-immunity, herd immunity, and what he calls “dry tinder.” Dry tinder is the result of the severity of previous seasons of influenza. A country with a previous mild flu season increases the number of vulnerable people at risk during the next more severe season. A country with a previous severe flu season decreases the number of vulnerable at risk. Yeadon explains the varying effects of COVID on different countries:
Greece and Germany certainly had very lethal winter flu in the last two years. I think then, they had a smaller population of very vulnerable people, and that is the main reason why they lost fewer people. It’s not to do with locking down, it’s not to do with testing, or tracking, or tracing. I personally don’t think any of those measures have made any difference at all.
Yeadon says that the four common cold coronaviruses share antibodies similar to COVID and create cross or prior immunity. Prior immunity combined with total immunity stops the transmission. He says that if we could properly test people’s immune status, by the Spring of 2020, we would have found that 60-80 percent have evidence of prior immunity. Based on a scientific understanding of historical immunology, our natural immunity was all the precautions needed to address COVID. We can then only explain the destructive global response to COVID as a means to another agenda where health is not the priority.
PCR tests were never meant to detect COVID. Kary Mullis invented the PCR test and stated that the interpretation of a PCR test’s results could be misused because “with PCR if you do it well, you can find almost anything in anybody.” PCR amplifies the DNA in cycles. There is no standard for cycles within a country and certainly not internationally. They can be run from 27 to 45 cycles with completely different results dependent on the cycles. Yet, governments are using non-standardized PCR test results, with their known false positives and negatives, as the basis for their lockdown policies. A PCR test can also pick up a virus’s residue that one’s immune system has successfully defeated and label that individual as symptomatic. This falsely subjects the individual to all the negative COVID effects of quarantine, along with psychological and economic damage. Yeadon states of PCR testing, “it’s the most primitive way of sorting sick from ill and attribution of death that I could ever imagine.”
A Look at COVID Vaccines
All of this leads to the rushed and untested mRNA vaccines that people are lining up to receive as human guinea pigs. When viewed through The Great Reset lens, COVID appears to be the casus belli for a “pandemic” that forces mass vaccination with all its totalitarian implications.
Regular vaccines introduce immunogens, or attenuated infectious agents, into the body to stimulate an immune response and fight infections. This is how vaccines have worked up until the mRNA vaccine. The COVID mRNA vaccine introduces messenger RNA, a small piece of genetic code, into the body to trick cells into producing a spike protein common to the targeted coronavirus and create antibodies in response. The advantage of mRNA is that the genetic code can be created quickly in a lab and introduced for various potential illnesses in a vastly shortened time period. The problem is that mRNA vaccines have not been tested for short or long-term adverse effects. Due to the COVID hysteria, mRNA vaccines were rushed into use without the usual 10-15 years required to pass all the FDA stages of mandated vaccine trial development.
Short-term adverse reactions to the COVID vaccine defined by the CDC as “unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work, required care from doctor or health care professional” is running at 2.7% based on CDC data. That’s an individual’s initial adverse reaction to receiving the vaccine. The new mRNA vaccine requires lipid nanoparticles to gain entry to the cell, and they are coated with the compound polyethylene glycol (PEG).
PEG has never been used before in an approved vaccine, but it is found in many drugs that have occasionally triggered anaphylaxis—a potentially life-threatening reaction that can cause rashes, a plummeting blood pressure, shortness of breath, and a fast heartbeat. Some allergists and immunologists believe a small number of people previously exposed to PEG may have high levels of antibodies against PEG, putting them at risk of an anaphylactic reaction to the vaccine.
It’s the unknown long-term effects that are more worrying. This report from the National Academy of Sciences, PNAS, explains it in more detail.
Since the 1960s, tests of vaccine candidates for diseases such as dengue, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) have shown a paradoxical phenomenon: Some animals or people who received the vaccine and were later exposed to the virus developed more severe disease than those who had not been vaccinated (1).
It’s a complicated subject, but it deals with ADE, antibody-dependent enhancement–defined as immune backfiring. Also alarming is cell-based enhancement--“a category that includes allergic inflammation caused by Th2 immunopathology.” Th2 immunopathology was responsible for the tragic result of attempts to find a vaccine for RSV in the 1960s. Several toddlers’ death from the vaccine and illness of others set back that vaccine research for a generation.
On the one hand, mRNA has tremendous potential. It revolutionizes vaccines by abandoning the long process for traditional immunogen introduction in favor of a rapid genetic coded messenger system that may revolutionize how we address chronic diseases.
On the other hand, mRNA bypassed proper testing, and the long-term effects remain unknown. Questions have been raised about how the mRNA affects fertility, which is listed as a possible side-effect by the mRNA vaccine makers. Additionally, how the spike protein antibodies respond to future wild viruses via ADE and Th2 immunopathology remains unknown.
On the third hand, when combined with the goals of Malthusian and eugenicist oligarchs like Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab, there is potential for mandatory vaccines to become the agent for totalitarian control in the form of health passes, quarantines, individual tracking, nanochip vaccine identification, and social credit scores. Lurking everywhere you look behind the COVID curtain; you find Bill Gates’s vaccinate everyone on the planet with his Gavi Vaccine Alliance and Klaus Schwab’s WEF Great Reset, Fourth Industrialized Revolution, transhumanist, technocratic dystopian future.
