The vaccines were designed for a model of the Covid-19 that no longer exists, and the vaccines are ineffective against the variants. From Karl Denninger at market-ticker.org:
Now the CDC wants everyone to line up for a third round of clot-shot lottery.
Note carefully: The Israel data says this will fail and kill lots of people.
Aran’s message for the United States and other wealthier nations considering boosters is stark: “Do not think that the boosters are the solution.”
That’s right. They’re not.
Delta may be more-transmissible but if you’re immune it does not matter how transmissible a virus is. You either can or cannot be infected. It’s binary. If you’re immune then you’re immune. If you’re not then you’re not. If you have had Chicken Pox (I have) you’d look at anyone telling you to take a chicken pox shot as if they had six heads because such a suggestion is flat-out bat****-crazy-level insanity.
The idea that somehow Delta “can” break through immunity because it is more transmissible is flat-out scientific fraud and everyone who says that and has any knowledge of viruses and immunity knows it. They’re lying, on purpose, and every one of them deserves to be locked up in GITMO as a ****ing terrorist and waterboarded to within an inch of their lives.
The reason Delta is “breaking through” is either due to OAS or the fact that the vaccines never did work worth a crap in the first place to prevent you from getting infected. Their “efficacy” was a lie but whether its due to mutational reality or the fact that we claimed “effectiveness” simply due to herd effects with the existing circulating strains at the time does not matter.
My suspicion is that there is a blend of both going on here and there is science to back that up; the mutational pattern that we have seen and the science behind it says that evasion is happening. The “wild coding” used originally and to this day for the jabs is long-extinct; there is basically zero of that circulating anymore in the population. It has all been subsumed by ordinary mutational process and we had every reason to believe this would happen when Covid-19 first showed up because it has happened with every other coronavirus we have studied through history — including the closest analog SARS-1 which mutated itself out of transmission and being a threat to people.
