It's not specific against Omicron, which is rapidly overtaking other variants and currently accounts for 95% of all COVID cases in the U.S.12
A number of studies have already shown that the COVID shots offer very limited protection against the Omicron variant, yet the guidance doesn't change. "Get the booster," is the universal recommendation, but that's like telling everyone to use a fiu vaccine from one or even two seasons ago. Why take another dose of something that is significantly mismatched to the strains in circulation?
Omicron Makes Vaccine Mandates Obsolete
As noted by Dr. Luc Montagnier and Jed Rubenfeld, a lawyer, in a January 9, 2022, Wall Street Journal opinion piece, "Omicron Makes Biden's Vaccine Mandates Obsolete," there's no evidence the COVID shots reduce infections from this rapidly spreading variant.
"It would be irrational, legally indefensible and contrary to the public interest forgovernment to mandate vaccines absent any evidence that the vaccines areeffective in stopping the spread of the pathogen they target,"
Montagnier and Rubenfeld write,
"Yet that's exactly what's happening here ...As of Jan. 1, Omicron represented more than 95% of U.S. COVID cases,according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Because some of Omicron's 50 mutations are known to evade antibodyprotection, because more than 30 of those mutations are to the spike proteinused as an immunogen by the existing vaccines, and because there have beenmass Omicron outbreaks in heavily vaccinated populations, scientists are highlyuncertain the existing vaccines can stop it from spreading ...The Supreme Court held in Jacobson v. Massachusetts (1905) that the right torefuse medical treatment could be overcome when society needs to curb thespread of a contagious epidemic. At Friday's oral argument, all the [SupremeCourt] justices acknowledged that the federal mandates rest on this rationale.But mandating a vaccine to stop the spread of a disease requires evidence thatthe vaccines will prevent infection or transmission (rather than eficacy against345
severe outcomes like hospitalization or death).As the World Health Organization puts it, 'if mandatory vaccination isconsidered necessary to interrupt transmission chains and prevent harm toothers, there should be suficient evidence that the vaccine is eficacious inpreventing serious infection and/or transmission.' For Omicron, there is as yetno such evidence. The little data we have suggest the opposite."
COVID Shots Increase Omicron Infection Risk
The pair go on to cite Danish research showing the Moderna and Pfizer mRNA shots have no statistically positive effect against Omicron infection after just 30 days. Worse, 90 days' post-injection their effectiveness goes negative, making those who have received the jab more susceptible to Omicron infection than the unvaccinated.
"Confirming this negative eficacy finding, data from Denmark and the Canadianprovince of Ontario indicate that vaccinated people have higher rates ofOmicron infection than unvaccinated people,"
Montagnier and Rubenfeld write. An additional problem is that those who have received the jab are just as contagious as the unvaccinated, once they get infected. "Preliminary data from all over the world indicate that this is true of Omicron as well," Montagnier and Rubenfeld note. In a January 10, 2022, CNN interview, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky actually admitted that "what [the COVID shots] can't do anymore is prevent transmission." That ought to close the book on the COVID jab mandates, but no. Government is still insisting people inject themselves with a risky product that has no hope of controlling, let alone ending, the pandemic. Montagnier and Rubenfeld continue:
"According to the CDC, the overwhelming majority of symptomatic U.S. Omicroncases have been mild. The best policy might be to let Omicron run its coursewhile protecting the most vulnerable, naturally immunizing the vast majorityagainst COVID through infection by a relatively benign strain."6789
Pfizer to Introduce Omicron-Specific COVID Shot
Vaccine makers are not going to give up their golden goose without a fight, though. Pfizer is now saying it will have an Omicron-specific shot ready in March 2022, at which point Americans will undoubtedly be told to line up for a fourth injection.

Depending on where you live, it might actually be your fifth dose. Israel, for example, rolled out a fourth dose of the Pfizer shot for certain vulnerable groups at the end of December 2021. Think about this for a moment. There are people now who have received four mRNA gene transfer shots within the span of a single year! Let's be clear: That is not a vaccine. Vaccines are not something you need to keep injecting on a quarterly basis. And, as professor Andrew Pollard, head of the U.K.'s Committee on Vaccination and Immunization who helped create the Oxford-AstraZeneca shot, said in a January 3, 2022, Daily Telegraph interview, "We can't vaccinate the planet every four or six months. It's not sustainable or affordable."
Deltacron Variant May Be a Lab Contaminant
The idea that Omicron will remain the prevailing variant by the time Pfizer gets its updated injection done seems doubtful. The virus is rapidly mutating, so chances are they're always going to be one or more variants behind. Aside from limiting the protection you might get from the shots, that mismatch is also likely to keep driving mutations. In short, trying to "vaccinate" our way out of this pandemic is a fool's errand.101112
Already, several different variants have made headlines, including the Ihu variant, detected in France, which has 46 genetic mutations and 36 deletions from the original virus, the "fiurona" — a combination of the fiu and COVID-19 — initially identified in Israel, and Deltacron, a Delta variant with an Omicron signature in its genome, detected in Cyprus. So far, none of these mutations has stirred up any significant concern. According to the World Health Organization, Ihu is nothing to worry about, and some experts believe the Deltacron variant may be the result of a lab processing error. As reported by CNBC:
"WHO COVID expert Dr. Krutika Kuppalli said on Twitter that, in this case, therewas likely to have been a 'lab contamination of Omicron fragments in a Deltaspecimen.'"
Kuppalli also insists there's no such thing as Flurona. CNBC continues:
"Other scientists have agreed that the findings could be the result of a lab error,with virologist Dr. Tom Peacock from Imperial College London also tweetingthat 'the Cypriot 'Deltacron' sequences reported by several large media outletslook to be quite clearly contamination.'In another tweet, he noted that 'quite a few of us have had a look at thesequences and come to the same conclusion it doesn't look like a realrecombinant,' referring to a possible rearrangement of genetic material."
Others are less willing to write off Deltacron altogether. Dr. Boghuma Kabisen Titanji, an infectious disease expert at Emory University in Atlanta, has noted that the mixing of genetic material between the two widely circulating strains — Delta and Omicron — is possible. Recombination can occur, and with both of these strains in circulation, "dual infection with both variants increases this concern," she tweeted. The scientist who discovered Deltacron, Leontios Kostrikis, professor of biological sciences at the University of Cyprus, also defends its existence, saying it is not the result of a technical error. In an emailed statement to CNBC, Kostrikis stated that the 251314151617
cases of the mutation that he found "indicate an evolutionary pressure to an ancestral strain to acquire these mutations and not a result of a single recombination event." He also said that samples were processed in different labs in more than one country, and that a genetic sequence deposited by Israeli scientists into a global database has the same genetic characteristics. Still, Cyprus' health minister, Michael Hadjipantela told a local media outlet that they have no concerns about Deltacron at the moment, as both strains are already in circulation.
Are Combination Infections on the Rise?
With the emergence of fiurona and Deltacron, we seem to be entering a phase in which dual infections are emerging. In other words, people are coming down with two viral infections at the same time. NBC Chicago reports:
"Yes, it's possible for someone to be diagnosed with both fiu and COVID at thesame time, doctors say. Cases of people who have tested positive for bothviruses, in what has now been coined 'fiurona,' have been reported recently. Butdespite some false portrayals online, the viruses have not merged to create anew illness.They remain separate infections. 'Flurona is a thoughtfully-named experiencethat can in fact occur. The fiu virus and the COVID-19 virus are different enoughthat they're different variants and they both can occur at the same time,' said Dr.Mark Loafman, chair of family and community medicine for Cook CountyHealth."
The question is, will a co-infection result in more severe illness? Experts say it's possible, but not a given. It's also dificult to discern whether you're fighting one or two viruses simultaneously to begin with. At present, there's no simple way to discern whether you're infected with just one or two viruses.
Symptoms of Cold, Flu and COVID Overlap1819
The core symptoms are near-indistinguishable between fiu and COVID: Fever (which tends to be a little higher when you have the fiu, compared to COVID infection) or chills Muscle or body aches Cough Shortness of breath Congestion Headache "Those are all very, very common for both fiu and COVID and I think for most of us, we wouldn't really be able to tell the difference," Loafman told NBC Chicago. Other symptoms commonly reported with SARS-CoV-2 infection (up to and including Delta), but less frequently with infiuenza, include: Loss of taste or smell Stomach/gastrointestinal pain (which in some cases could be a sign of microclots in the intestines ) Nausea or vomiting Diarrhea The common cold, caused by other coronaviruses, can also mimic COVID, especially infection with the Omicron variant. With Omicron infection, prominent symptoms include cough, congestion, runny nose and fatigue. A key difference in symptomology between Delta and Omicron is that Omicron does not appear to cause the loss of taste and smell, which often occurs with Delta infection (as with previous strains). Fortunately, Omicron also does not seem to be associated with blood clots, like previous strains (especially the initial ones), and it's also far less likely to cause severe lung infection and damage.
Treat Symptoms Early20212223
Considering the uncertainties around diagnosis, it's best to treat any cold or fiu-like symptoms early. Unfortunately, mainstream media and federal health authorities still recommend doing nothing. As reported by NBC Chicago:
"Unless you feel sick enough to seek medical help, Loafman said the guidancedoesn't change ... 'Stay home, stay away from others, and if you're sick enough,if you meet criteria to need help, then, you know, the clinical setting will sort outwhich testing to do' ...The CDC urges those who have or may have COVID-19 to watch for emergencywarning signs and seek medical care immediately if they experience symptomsincluding:
- prevention and early at-
- home treatment
- in-hospital protocol
- management guidance for long-haul COVID-19 syndrome
Trouble breathing Persistent pain or pressure in the chest New confusion Inability to wake or stay awake Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone" This is beyond terrible advice. At first signs of symptoms, you need to start treatment. Perhaps it's the common cold or a regular infiuenza, but since it's hard to tell, your best bet is to treat symptoms as you would COVID. To this day, many who get sick don't have a single remedy in their medicine cabinet. Why? Considering how contagious Omicron is, chances are you're going to get it, so buy what you'll need now, so you have it on hand if/when symptoms arise. And, remember, this applies for those who have gotten the jab as well, since you're just as likely to get infected — and perhaps even more so. Early treatment protocols with demonstrated effectiveness include but are not limited to the following: The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance's (FLCCC's) prevention and early at- home treatment protocol. They also have an in-hospital protocol and long-term management guidance for long-haul COVID-19 syndrome . You can find a listing of24
