Who comes up with this garbage? By garbage, I am speaking of the hyperbolic Marvel-approved flashy language in this news headline.
Vaccination after Covid infection gives some people ‘superhuman’ immunity, study finds
The fact that superhuman is in quotes leads me to believe the Independent’s writers did not contrive that on their own. A glance at the text does not reveal the source. In fact, the links in the story do reveal one thing: scientists are not the ones using that word.
They are scientists, not pitchmen. Scientists use “impressively potent” and “hybrid immunity” and “resilient” to portray superlatives – so where does overstatement like “superhuman immunity” come from?
I can’t say, but whoever it was that planted that hook is lurking behind the curtains. This is how the “more vaccine is better” mindfuck came into being. We are being prepped for recursive series of boosters and endless vaccines.
The NPR story linked is illuminating.
We are informed that natural immunity + vaccination creates an anti-viral superman. Many of us haven’t caught COVID-19 (in spite of the narrative) but that doesn’t mean we’re off the hook…
Now, of course, there are so many remaining questions. For example, what if you catch COVID-19 after you’re vaccinated? Or can a person who hasn’t been infected with the coronavirus mount a “superhuman” response if the person receives a third dose of a vaccine as a booster?
Hatziioannou says she can’t answer either of those questions yet. “I’m pretty certain that a third shot will help a person’s antibodies evolve even further, and perhaps they will acquire some breadth [or flexibility], but whether they will ever manage to get the breadth that you see following natural infection, that’s unclear.”
Immunologist John Wherry, at the University of Pennsylvania, is a bit more hopeful. “In our research, we already see some of this antibody evolution happening in people who are just vaccinated,” he says, “although it probably happens faster in people who have been infected.”
In a recent study, published online in late August, Wherry and his colleagues showed that, over time, people who have had only two doses of the vaccine (and no prior infection) start to make more flexible antibodies — antibodies that can better recognize many of the variants of concern.
So a third dose of the vaccine would presumably give those antibodies a boost and push the evolution of the antibodies further, Wherry says. So a person will be better equipped to fight off whatever variant the virus puts out there next.
Prepare for endless boosters.
Mesmerized yet? The mass hypnosis tool is engaged.
Be a Vaccine Superman. Be a booster Booster.
