The Worst Thing That Could Happen: Study Shows Fauci’s 2020 Concern a Reality

Kirkland, WA (August 16, 2021) – The pre-print of a new study published in the Journal of Infection finds that antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) is a concern for COVID-19 vaccine recipients exposed to the SARS-COV-2 Delta variant. The study shows that enhancing or facilitating antibodies in vaccine recipients help the spike protein of the Delta variant bind to the host cell. The authors state “. . .in the case of the Delta variant, neutralizing antibodies [in vaccine recipients] have a decreased affinity for the spike protein, whereas facilitating antibodies display a strikingly increased affinity.”

This possibility was known. On March 26, 2020, in a White House press conference, Dr. Tony Fauci said about vaccine candidates being developed:

“Does the vaccine make you worse? There are diseases that when you vaccinate someone, they get infected with what you are trying to protect them with, and you actually enhance the infection . . . it’s the worst possible thing you can do is vaccinate someone to prevent infection, and actually make them worse.”

At the FDA’s December 10, 2020 Vaccine & Related Biological Advisory Committee (VRBAC) meeting, “enhanced respiratory disease” was presented as one of the as yet unknown risks of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The FDA understood at the time they gave Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), that ADE was still an unknown but possible outcome.

The CDC has now acknowledged that vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccines does not prevent transmission. CDC has also acknowledged that vaccination risks include but are not limited to myocarditis, pericarditis, Guillain–Barré syndrome, and blood clots. These risks were included in a list of Adverse Reactions of Special Interest (ARSI) presented by the CDC and FDA to the VRBPAC on October 22, 2020. This list of ARSI, however, was not disseminated broadly to the medical community or emergency rooms, where individuals experiencing them would present. Because doctors are unaware of the ARSI list, proper treatment is being delayed, and many cases are not reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

In light of the findings of ADE to the Delta variant, along with  the inability to stop transmission, and the risks acknowledged and emerging, Informed Choice WA is calling for the cessation of all vaccine mandates by Governor Inslee, King County, the City of Seattle, and all other public and private entities.

We are also calling for Public Health agencies to cease claiming the COVID-19 vaccines to be “safe and effective,” and for policies to support existing nutrient and nutrient-drug protocols, such as designed by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance for prevention and early treatment, to prevent severe disease among everyone, regardless of vaccination status.
