Santa Ana, CA – Another COVID booster is on the horizon — this one targeting the BA.4 and BA.5 variants — opening the door for more discussion surrounding vaccine efficacy and the overall pandemic response.
Pointing to animal studies that date back more than 20 years, Dr. George Fareed of the Imperial Valley in California recently shared his perspective on why the type of vaccines being used have fallen short of expectations and possibly prolonged the pandemic.
“If you immunize a population in the pandemic with a vaccine that suppresses, to some extent, replication or gives some mild benefit of some sort in terms of the severity of the illness, it’s not a safe thing to do,” Dr. Fareed said. “You always use a blocking or a sterilizing vaccine — one that doesn’t allow the virus to break through. And that’s absolutely what we did not accomplish with these gene therapy-type vaccines … it doesn’t provide immunity or even prevent the infection for more than a few weeks or months … so it allows for a mutable virus to generate variants and perpetuate a pandemic.”
In the early days of COVID-19, Dr. Fareed and Dr. Brian Tyson created an early treatment protocol comprised of both pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. To date, they have successfully treated 12,000 COVID patients (and counting).
In their book, Overcoming the COVID Darkness, Drs. Fareed and Tyson chronicle their journey, detailing (in layperson’s terms) their COVID treatment formula and attempting to provide readers with clarity about the illness — with an entire chapter devoted to the vaccine response. The book also contains testimonials from patients and other doctors, research studies, news clippings, a letter they wrote to congress and a national COVID plan that can be adapted for future pandemics.
“Instead of the vaccine, people should have been treated early in the illness, and then they would have developed strong immunity, and we wouldn’t have all these new variants,” Dr. Fareed added.
