So-called COVID “vaccines” and flu vaccines are decidedly less than ideally effective in producing “mucosal immunity,” ie., immunity in the respiratory system where it is most needed for a respiratory virus.

That’s one of the major admissions of a new research study, titled “Rethinking next-generation vaccines for coronaviruses, influenza viruses, and other respiratory viruses,” published in the CellHost & Microbemedical journal.

But perhaps the most mind-blowing aspect of the paper was who is listed among the paper’s co-authors: Dr. Anthony Fauci.

As head of the NIAID during the entirety of the COVID War, Fauci was one of the biggest advocates for controversial mRNA medical treatments deceptively marketed as vaccines.

The paper admits what some medical experts have been arguing for some time now: that intramuscularly delivered COVID vaccines do not effectively target the respiratory tract, where the SARS-COVID virus attacks and resides.

The paper also admits that bacterial development and complications is a major factor of COVID:

“Apart from preventing initial infection, it is also important to consider the role of host immunity in limiting viral spread once infection has been established. Respiratory viruses usually first infect the mucosa of the upper respiratory tract, where IgA is most effective in antiviral control;95 however, some may spread contiguously to the lower respiratory tract, even to the pulmonary alveoli. This is of considerable significance for a subset of pneumogenic respiratory viruses such as influenza, RSV, and possibly SARS-CoV-2. These viruses are normally limited to the upper respiratory tract but can escape immune control and spread into the lungs to cause primary viral pneumonia with or without secondary bacterial pneumonia, often the principal causes of death from these infections.96 Moreover, evidence suggests that viral-bacterial coinfection may facilitate viral, and viral/bacterial airborne transmission97 and may even increase case-fatality, a phenomenon noted as long ago as 1917.98”

Though this should’ve been admitted from the beginning, based on the known history of viral infections often leading to bacterial infections, official COVID protocols—and front-line-doctors—often discouraged prescribing antibiotics for patients suffering from COVID. 

Right up to the current moment, the CDC has a web page which states:

“Antibiotic use throughout the pandemic varied across healthcare settings. Antibiotics were commonly prescribed to patients with COVID-19, even though antibiotics are not effective against viruses like the one that causes COVID-19.”

That information is highly deceptive, considering the well-known medical science that shows viral respiratory infections often progress to bacterial infections, for which antibiotics are a crucial form of care.

The Trends Journal highlighted those facts in stories like “BACTERIAL PNEUMONIA & COVID: WHAT THE CDC SAYS” (16 Feb 2021).

The “Rethinking next-generation vaccines” study notes that flu vaccines have a checkered track record concerning efficacy:

“Although current influenza vaccines reduce the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death to some degree, their effectiveness against clinically apparent infection is decidedly suboptimal, ranging from 14% to 60% over the past 15 influenza seasons.1 Furthermore, the duration of vaccine-elicited immunity is measured only in months. Current vaccines require annual re-vaccination with updated formulations that are frequently not precisely matched to circulating virus strains.8 Although annual influenza vaccinations are strongly recommended for most of the general public and especially for persons in high-risk groups, including the elderly, those with chronic diseases, and pregnant women, vaccine acceptance by the general public is not ideal.”

The study makes further admissions regarding the limited efficacy of flu and COVID vaccines:

“With influenza, for example, vaccines historically have been designed to prevent upper respiratory infection, not secondary pulmonary infection associated with spread from the upper respiratory tract. This has proved problematic because current influenza vaccines are suboptimal at both preventing infection and eliciting pulmonary immunity.113 Although influenza and SARS-CoV-2 vaccines reduce disease severity when vaccines fail to prevent infection, significant numbers of fatalities still occur, resulting in tens of thousands of annual influenza deaths in the United States.114,115,116 With the imperfections of these vaccines, it seems a public health imperative to aggressively pursue better vaccines and vaccination strategies.”

Overriding Theme: “Science” Has As Many Questions Concerning Effective Vaccines in the Aftermath of the COVID War, Than Before

During much of the COVID War, Fauci portrayed his recommendations and those of the CDC and WHO as incontrovertible “science,” not to be questioned.

Indeed Fauci was instrumental in efforts to suppress and ban contrary viewpoints, including those by other medical experts, as misinformation.

That history makes this new research paper even more breathtaking, since its overriding theme is a contemplation of how much “science” still doesn’t know concerning formulating effective treatments against respiratory viruses.

To give just one example, the paper meditates on all the factors that need to be explored (as of Jan 2023) regarding creating more effective vaccines:

“A key challenge for next-generation vaccines is determining if one-size-fits-all vaccines or vaccines targeted to key risk groups will be useful. It is inevitable that various human risk groups may require different vaccines or vaccine formulations. For example, we know that RSV infections are best prevented by humoral immunity in children but by cell-mediated immunity in the elderly.136 Moreover, children may require different vaccine doses than do young adults, who in turn may need different doses than do the elderly with narrowed B cell and especially T cell repertoires to viral antigens.136”

To be sure, while it turns out that Fauci’s vaunted “science” appears to have significantly—some say criminally—oversold what MRNA vaccines could do, the research just published in scientific journal Cell remains giddy about all the future vaccine pursuits it has in store for the world:

“We also need to ask whether there are other vaccine approaches that should be considered, such as sequential seasonal vaccinations and supplemental mucosal vaccines to stimulate specific upper respiratory immunity, or non-specific innate immunity. Such approaches might include prime-boost approaches, for example, mixing elicitation of systemic and mucosal immunity, perhaps with prime systemic vaccination followed by a boost with intranasal vaccination or vice versa.35,82,150 Beyond intranasal vaccination, we will need to more fully explore responses to vaccination in other respiratory immune compartments, such as eye-drop conjunctival vaccination117 and particularly aerosol vaccination for certain respiratory viruses, as suggested by human and animal experimental studies for influenza and other respiratory viral diseases.44,135” 

Scientists Lambast the Admissions of the New Research Paper

Many scientists and experts who had long pointed out the lies and deceptions surrounding COVID mRNA claims of efficacy, protection against virus spread, whether relatively healthy and young citizens should take them, and more, blasted Fauci’s admissions in the new research paper.

Jeffrey A. Tucker, president of Brownstone Institute, a social, public health, and economic research nonprofit, commented on Twitter concerning the paper:

“Wherein Fauci explains that a vaccine for Covid could never work to stop infection, spread, or end the pandemic. Not only that but no attempt could ever have passed normal trials.”

George Mason Law professor Todd Zywicki added:

“Fauci published his article a week after he retired. So he obviously knew the shots couldn’t prevent infection bc of mucosal immunity yet never said anything publicly. When did he know it? And why didn’t he say anything until after he retired?”

Zywicki said he had been pointing out since 2022 that one of the primary reasons why natural immunity (NI) was superior to COVID vaccines was due to mucosal immunity:

“I did an interview with a researcher earlier this week and the last question she asked was, ‘What do you believe is the one most important thing that people don’t understand about Covid still?’ My answer: Mucosal immunity and that’s why NI provides superior protection to vax.”

Kyle Becker of Becker News linked to an early 2022 article in that publication that referenced several medical experts detailing why COVID vaccines were not stopping the spread of COVID, despite official claims from Fauci and even President Joe Biden that the vaccines could “stop the spread.”

[Author Note: This journalist personally experienced a doctor who refused to prescribe an antibiotic during a time when I had COVID in late 2021, saying “antibiotics aren’t effective against COVID.”  Thankfully another doctor did prescribe an antibiotic, as I was suffering from pneumonia as a consequence of COVID.  For more on that, see “MY COVID EXPERIENCE,” (25 Jan 2022) —JD]
