The paper below reanalyzes data from an Israeli study on Covid case rates following Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination.
What is important to note is that the data were obtained from an Israeli HMO in which 352,000 people were vaccinated, and 3,098 got Covid afterwards. These are very big numbers and should be reliable. I have seen a similar effect in two other papers, but the numbers affected were much smaller, so I was not willing to post about them until now.
Something is happening after vaccination that causes new Covid cases to rise steadily in recipients for 8 days post-vaccination, then start dropping. At 2 weeks post-vaccination, recipients are back at the same risk of being diagnosed with Covid that they were before getting the vaccine.
After that, their risk steadily drops. When Pfizer presented their data to the FDA, they were careful to avoid discussing the first two weeks post-vaccination, and noted how protection kept increasing from 14 days post vaccination for up to about 50 days (if I remember correctly).
I wondered then, and wonder again today, if spike protein is being made for weeks or longer, not hours or days, to account for this phenomenon.
I also wonder what the vaccine is doing to cause more than double the recipient’s risk for Covid at a week post-vaccination. Are recipients at higher risk for other infections? Is there immune suppression or is something else going on?
