A new investigation is showing that those COVID boosters are problematic, with those who get them more likely than those who have only the initial shot to get ill and even die.
The results are from the Epoch Times which explained it did its own investigation to obtain the results.
“Cases, hospitalizations, and deaths among the boosted have been increasing since the booster shots were first introduced in 2021,” the study said. “The boosters were promoted as bolstering protection against adverse outcomes. But, compared to the vaccinated who have not received any boosters, boosted people are testing positive, being hospitalized, and dying at higher levels in many states.”
It explained the review looked at data from the first two quarters of 2022.
The Epoch Times noted that in California, the “boosted population” made up 72% of the COVID-19 cases among vaccinated people in June. In Vermont that month, the boosted population made up 90% of the COVID-19 deaths among the vaccinated.
And in Wisconsin, those “boosted” were 43% of the cases, 43% of the hospitalizations, and 46% of the deaths, “well above the boosted population, the study showed.
Dr. Robert Malone, who helped invent the messenger RNA technology that the Pfizer and Moderna corporations use in their shots, said, “It is unassailable that a very large fraction of highly inoculated [people] are among those being hospitalized or dying. So, at a minimum, the effectiveness in preventing hospitalization or death does not appear to be aligned with the official policy position.”
Bureaucrats at the Centers for Disease Control, an organization that has become politicized in recent years, still want all Americans to get vaccinations, “including multiple boosters,” the study said.
“In 18 of the 19 states that provided or already list sufficient data, the boosted made up a majority of one or more metrics among the vaccinated, The Epoch Times found through reviewing publicly available data and public records requests after reporting how vaccinated people were more likely when compared to the unvaccinated, to get sick, hospitalized, or die in a number of states,” the report said.
In seven of the states, the “boosted population” was the majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.
The report said Dr. Andrew Bostom, formerly of Brown University, pointed out that some of the information is “missing variables” that could change the emphasis of the results.
The study noted, “Some states did adjust data for age, accounting for the fact that older people are more likely to receive not only the original vaccine series but boosters. All eight states which provided or listed age-adjusted rates showed higher rates for at least one metric among the boosted when compared to the fully vaccinated. In Wisconsin, for example, the rate of hospitalizations among the boosted was 9.2 per 100,000—nearly double the number of fully vaccinated.
“In two of the states—Minnesota and New Mexico—rates for cases among the boosted were even higher than the unvaccinated,” the report said.
The Epoch Times also noted that Cleveland Clinic Researchers have said it looks like the more boosters taken, the higher the chance a person tests positive.
