What if Dr. Anthony Fauci co-authored an article on vaccines that would have got you and me blocked and banned at any point in the past three years? That’s just happened.
His article in Cell, ‘Rethinking next-generation vaccines for coronaviruses, influenzaviruses, and other respiratory viruses‘, states it as plainly as possible: the Covid-19 vaccine didn’t work because it couldn’t work.
`There’s nothing particularly interesting in his article. Only the timing is interesting, following trillions in pharma profits and millions displaced by mandates and suffering from injury all over the world. Now he says that there was really no chance that the vaccine would be either effective or necessarily safe.
Here’s the summary of the article:
‘Viruses that replicate in the human respiratory mucosa without infecting systemically, including influenza A, SARS-CoV-2, endemic coronaviruses, RSV, and many other “common cold” viruses, cause significant mortality and morbidity and are important public health concerns. Because these viruses generally do not elicit complete and durable protective immunity by themselves, they have not to date been effectively controlled by licensed or experimental vaccines.
‘In this review, we examine challenges that have impeded development of effective mucosal respiratory vaccines, emphasizing that all of these viruses replicate extremely rapidly in the surface epithelium and are quickly transmitted to other hosts, within a narrow window of time before adaptive immune responses are fully marshaled.’
There are profound safety issues to consider, too. It takes a very long time to assure that. Fauci wrote: ‘Considering that vaccine development and licensure is a long and complex process requiring years of preclinical and clinical safety and efficacy data, the limitations of influenza and SARS-CoV-2 vaccines remind us that candidate vaccines for most other respiratory viruses have to date been insufficiently protective for consideration of licensure.’
Further, vaccines certainly can’t improve on what even natural immunity can’t do: ‘Taking all of these factors into account, it is not surprising that none of the predominantly mucosal respiratory viruses have ever been effectively controlled by vaccines. This observation raises a question of fundamental importance: if natural mucosal respiratory virus infections do not elicit complete and long-term protective immunity against reinfection, how can we expect vaccines, especially systemically administered non-replicating vaccines, to do so?’
This is why the flu vaccines ‘have never been able to elicit durable protective immunity against seasonal influenza virus strains, even against non-drifted strains . . . Their effectiveness against clinically apparent infection is decidedly suboptimal, ranging from 14 per cent to 60 per cent over the past 15 influenza seasons.’

We accept the flu vaccines with their limitations because:
1. They are not made with dead babies.
2. They are old-school vaccines, thoroughly tested.
3. Limited protection from death or hospitalization is worth it for the at-risk population.
4. They are not mandatory (and you can’t get fired or fined for refusing them).
5. They are targeted and marketed only to the elderly and those at-risk.
6. Their pros and cos can be discussed without fear of censorship.
7. We don’t get called racists for searching out or discussing the origins of flu strains, and no one would suspect the birds who spread them of trying to conquer the world.
Very different from COVID.
Bravo, sir…you’re a credit to the Irish race….
the same for the pneumonia vaccines which I took–PCV 13 and PCV 23, those and zinc with vitamins seem to do the trick. I also have my throat blessed on St. Blaise Day or do the novena. I have never had a flu vaccine and know others who have not have them either and do not get the flu. I have nothing against flu vaccines, just felt no need for them as the zinc kept it away. Never had a COVID shot either and mask seldom.
Yeah. I’m 63. Haven’t had flu or cold in at least 15 years. Just alot of exercise and eat well. No masking for me.
Tom, you obviously didn’t read the article. #2 and 3 of your comments are blatantly false.
I said “limited”, and the article said “suboptimal”. Those are synonyms. The flu vaccines keep some people alive and healthy who would not have been otherwise, but not everyone, and the medical establishment has been honest about that point.
And if there are safety concerns about the flu vaccines (which have been around for a couple of decades), please cite them. My point was to contrast them with the COVID jabs, which are just as temporary in their effects (if any), have just arrived, and are rapidly amassing bad side-effect data.
On your point #5- Flu vaccines are recommended for everyone over 6 months of age, unless they have a reason not to take it (like allergies…)
The Conservative Woman copied (with permission she says) from the Epoch Times. The Epoch Time is a highly conservative right-wing outfit known in a batch of media groups known to be selective, incomplete, unfair persuasion, propaganda or other issues. Look them up on adfontesmedia.com. They rate right down there with newsmax and tucker carlson.
All the key Fauci quotes came from Cell. Can you find untruths in them?
And, MSNBC, CNN, the Washington Post, the NY Times and so-called “mainstream” media are not highly liberal left-wing outfits known in a batch of media groups known to be selective, incomplete, unfair persuasion, propaganda or other issues?
Do you ever describe liberal media as “highly” liberal “left-wing” groups?
And, of course, Ad Fontes Media is infallible and unbiased because they claim they are. Do you think Media Matters is unbiased? How about Media Research Center? Let’s be honest, one is left of center and one is right of center (to use a poor, but understandable, analogy).
As you were asked, how was Fauci misquoted?
Do you really think Whoopi Goldberg is a better journalist than Tucker Carlson?
And add Vit D3 to your regimen.
Amen. I take calcium with D3 all the time, and try to get some sunshine.
Let’s talk about ratings. Here are the Cable prime time ratings for Feb. 15, 2023:
Tucker Carlson. 3.342 million. FoxNews
Anderson Cooper: 632 thousand. CNN
Chris Hayes: 138. thousands. MSNBC
Millions to thousands. Guess the “far right-wing is winning…. Facts, they just get in the way…
“They rate right down there with newsmax and tucker carlson.’ Media Fairness??!!?? Are you kidding me? Please be honest, Media Fairness, and don’t insult anyone here with your sophomoric gaslighting.
Dan, veracity is a moving target sometimes. Carson and the other talking heads on Fox News have just been exposed for their not-so-great-journalism. Their emails have been published in which they all agreed that the “stolen election” was a fraud, untrue. They continued to lead with the untruth because it kept the ratings up and thus the commercial ad money. Neither side of the political spectrum is totally clean in their motivations. It is good to know that MSNBC and Fox are polar opposites. That should make us want to seed out other outlets for our news and opinion, don’t you think?
Ah Bob One the reliable mouth piece of the ruling elite. People like Tucker Carlson would rub Bob One the wrong way because he attacks the ruling class who have decapitated this country. We are a hair breaths away from a direct war with Russia over a corrupt place like Ukraine lead by another middle eastern thug Zelenksy. Carlson has exposed lies not told them You Bob One probably believe the Ukraine is winning when in fact they are being badly beaten the Russians have mobilized 500K troops with 200k in reserve. The ruling elite neo cons are willing to fight this war to last Ukrainian. As a matter of fact Bob One I do get news sources from other the mainstream, and those sources are the only ones reporting what is going in the Ukraine. Also Bob One Carlson has been the only main stream commentator who has been consistently reporting on the real environmental disaster known as East Palestine Ohio. No major network has covered this why=Answer the majority of those residents are poor white working class. If this had happened in a more fashionable zip code or more favored minority area it would be nonstop on the news with the constantly accusations of racism. You may not like Tucker Carlson but knowing that he bothers you, makes me smile
I checked online and you are not correct. The train wreck story is on CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC.
It is even on the BBC.
The accident and the fire happened two weeks ago and only NOW getting attention
bohemond, I saw it on the news the day it happened.
The explosion at the metal factory yesterday, too.
I see a story on CNN from February 7, two weeks ago.
I see one 13 days ago on ABC.
Thank you Bob One for the heads up. I shall look into it. What you are saying is that Carlson et al. knew there was nothing to the claims of the election being stolen but they colluded together to push the falsehood for the sake of ratings etc. If true that is shocking and those responsible should resign. But as I said, I shall look into it.
“That should make us want to seed out other outlets for our news and opinion, don’t you think?” Bob One, it does seem your claim is true that Fox News had a low opinion of the fraud story and they are being sued by Dominion for something like 1.6 billion. Thanks for this sorry news. AS to your question, on the one hand it is good common sense to read several sources; on the other hand there is a logical fallacy in assuming the truth lies between two extremes. But again, thanks for the heads up.
Fauci comes clean 3 years after destroying millions of lives and lining the pockets of many corrupt elites with billions of dollars — telling us what many of us have already known for almost 3 years. Hell hath no fury like billions of people scorned…. Is this his act of repentance, trying to avoid the 9th Circle of Hell??
your judgement is wrong and immoral
oh please. People don’t “come clean” in an article in Cell, even if he had anything to come clean about. He does what science does. He proposed an hypotheses, tested it, revised the hypothesis and retested it, over and over again as we learn more things. It is a far cry better than deciding in advance what must be correct just because we said it must be correct, and rejecting any new information or data that comes along.
the brainwashing of America goes on.
Fact check — “Fauci: recent paper doesn’t suggest COVID vaccines ineffective” https://apnews.com/article/fact-check-covid-mRNA-vaccine-fauci-387418337013
“…the paper’s authors argue that the social media posts twist their words.
‘The article DOES NOT say these vaccines don’t work, just that they don’t work as well as we want them and need them to work,’ Morens [a coauthor] wrote in an email Friday.
In their paper, the authors acknowledge that current vaccines for the flu, COVID and other respiratory viruses aren’t effective in protecting against any and all illness over a person’s entire life, whereas vaccines for other respiratory illnesses such as measles, mumps, and rubella effectively confer lifetime immunity.”
