Orange Room Supporter
Not familiar with the crackpot in question but his claim is actually invalidated through observable evidence, the vaccines are helping people not hindering their immune system's reaction to covid-19.
Unless you can find proof that supports his bullshit claim, move on.
The crackpot in question is one of the pioneers of mRNA technology.
He argued in the Washington Times that the Biden administration's "strategy to universally vaccinate in the middle of the pandemic is bad science and badly needs a reboot."
Malone, who coauthored the op-ed with former Trump Defense Production Act Policy Coordinator Peter Navarro, claimed that Biden's universal vaccination/herd immunity approach to ending the pandemic is "flawed," in part because "the virus is now so deeply embedded in the world population that, unlike polio and smallpox, eradication is unachievable."
Malone also argued that the vaccines, "while good at preventing severe disease and death ... only reduce, not eliminate, the risk of infection, replication, and transmission," and that they carry the risk of "by no means trivial" side effects, including "serious cardiac and thrombotic conditions, menstrual cycle disruptions, Bell's Palsy, Guillain Barre syndrome, and anaphylaxis."
Virologists, Malone claimed, also fear potential further side effects, including "existential reproductive risks," as well as "various forms of disease enhancement, i.e., the vaccines can make people more vulnerable to reinfection by SARS-CoV-2 or reactivation of latent viral infections and associated diseases such as shingles."
The vaccines also present the risk of an "arms race," warned Malone, arguing "the more people you vaccinate, the greater the number of vaccine-resistant mutations you are likely to get, the less durable the vaccines will become, ever more powerful vaccines will have to be developed, and individuals will be exposed to more and more risk."
