Comment on Why Vaccinate Kids Against COVID-19? by Don E Helland MD.

One concern that I have is the potential for integration in the host DNA, using the same mechanism produces “processed pseudogenes”.

“Human LINE retrotransposons generate processed pseudogenes”. This article discusses this process.

I have never heard this discussed up to this point.

What are your thoughts Sean?

Children Shouldn’t Get COVID-19 Vaccines, Harvard Professor Says

Thank God (literally) that there are some physicians who are still thinking clearly about COVID19.

“Those who are pushing these vaccine mandates and vaccine passports … they’re doing so much more damage to vaccine confidence than anybody else,” says Dr. Martin Kulldorff, one of the world’s leading epidemiologists.

This video interview with Kulldorf is an interesting deep dive on COVID-19 immunity, vaccines, the Delta variant, and his observation that the global COVID response has been the “biggest public health fiasco in history.”

Dr. Martin Kulldorff is a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a biostatistician and epidemiologist at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He helped develop the CDC’s current system for monitoring potential vaccine risks, and he is also one of the co-authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, which argued for “focused protection” of the most vulnerable, instead of lockdowns.


Why Vaccinate Kids Against COVID-19?
Sean you apparently did not read my comment carefully.

Human cells apparently use the LINE retrotransposon mechanism (which includes reverse transcriptase, integrase, etc) to make “processed pseudogenes” from human mRNA. I am wondering if this could happen with the mRNA in the covid vaccine.

“Bayer has responded noting that Stefan Oelrich was only talking about future applications of mRNA technology –”

Do you have a reference for this response from Bayer? When I google it nothing comes up.

(I guess it could also depend on how you define gene therapy. The DNA of a vaccine recipient may not get altered. But you are still using a modified viral gene mRNA. I wish there were more folks on this site to chime in and help clarify things. I don’t pretend to be a microbiologist, ID specialist, or molecular geneticist, etc.)

Mandates vs. Religious Exemptions

“Severity of SARS-CoV-2 Reinfections as Compared with Primary Infections”

“Yeah, well” this study from NEJM does correlate with my own experience.

250,000+ patients that had covid disease, and no vaccine

“Low rate of reinfection”

“No critical patients or deaths in those with reinfection”

Which makes me question the need for a vaccine in those that have had covid infection.

Mandates vs. Religious Exemptions
“Regardless of all of this, the main point that the authors of this paper make is not substantiated by their research.”

I am going to email the contacting author and see if they can respond to your comments about their paper.

The point that concerned me the most was that they state the spike proteins enter the nucleus and interfere with DNA repair mechanisms. I would like to know if this can happen in the muscle cells at the site of injection.

Mandates vs. Religious Exemptions
“Stefan Oelrich, president of Bayer’s Pharmaceuticals Division, made these comments at this year’s World Health Summit, which took place in Berlin from October 24-26 and hosted 6,000 people from 120 countries. Oelrich told his fellow international “experts” from academia, politics, and the private sector that the novel mRNA COVID “vaccines” are actually “cell and gene therapy” that would have otherwise been rejected by the public if not for a “pandemic” and favorable marketing.”

I think this could be debated. You are injecting a synthetic modified mRNA molecule, which contains the viral genetic information for the spike protein. You certainly are using viral genetic information. But of course the president of Bayer’s Pharmaceuticals Division has no idea what he is talking about.

Fortunately it is still a free country with a free press and freedom of thought.

People can listen to him and read his book and decide for themselves.
