On “natural immunity”

So, we’re hearing about this new study that shows natural immunity is stronger than the vaccine.

I’m guessing the Infection Fatality Rate in the U.S. is around 1%. The VAERS number for vaccinations, which is a sketchy worst case (see below), is 0.0022%. So, given the vaccine is plenty effective, which procedure would you gamble on? (Not choosing is picking the 1% option, obviously.)

(Not to mention getting vaccinated reduces your personal IFR number way below 1%.)

«Many sources of false information will often cite the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

VAERS was established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1990 as an early warning system to detect potential safety issues with vaccines. It allows anyone to report adverse effects experienced after receiving any vaccine, including the COVID-19 vaccines.

According to VAERS, more than 520 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020 through January 10, 2022. During this time, VAERS received 11,225 reports of death (0.0022%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine.

However, this does not mean the vaccine caused these deaths.

“VAERS is unique in that it’s a system that accepts reports from anyone,” Morris said. “It can be a doctor or a hospital or a health department that reports a death that is timed after a vaccine, or it can be a patient or a family member of someone who had an adverse reaction or just had a reaction.”

“So it can be that deaths are reported that are completely unrelated,” she continued. “Deaths can also be reported that are actually false or that are clearly unrelated, but are reported based on timing or even based on malicious intent.”

Therefore, these statistics offer no insight into the actual cause of death in these cases.

The death of a 90-year-old nursing patient a few days after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, for example, would be reported to VAERS. However, there are a number of other causes this person could have died from.»
