“The trickiest thing with this vaccine is something called Original Antigenic Sin. To give a very simplified explanation, the immune response to the vaccine is incomplete and therefore the vaccinated can still carry and transmit the bacteria. This may also explain why vaccination “immunity” doesn’t last as long as natural immunity. What makes it really bad is that once you’ve been vaccinated, even if you later go through the illness, you’ll never be able to develop long-term immunity. Your body has been set to an incomplete immune response PERMANENTLY.”
No. Simply No.
Infections from “natural” pathogenic Pertussis provide immunity for a period of 4 to 20 years.
There is no such thing called Original Antigenic Sin. That is just a term made up by someone who doesn’t grasp vaccines or immunology. The immune system as depicted by this anti-vaxxer simply does not work that way.
Edit – Correction. There is something called Original Antigenic Sin however it doesn’t mean what the anti-vax thinks it means. The Hoskins Effect’s other name is Original Antigenic Sin. This however is alleviated by usage of adjuvants. Which the anti-vax consider to be deadly deadly mind control poison.
A antigen is any part of the pathogen that can be idenitified by the immunoglobulins that make up the active site of a corresponding antibody which in turn marks these pathogens and causes them to stick together into easily managed blobs while attracting the macrophage (or big eating cells if you want it’s technical name).
No Vaccine is 100%. No Seatbelt is 100% either but we still bloody wear one.
See when you say “I will simplify it for you” the idea is that people have to assume you are an expert rather than worse than ignorant. You see ignorant people don’t know. I don’t know anything about Quantum Physics. I am ignorant. You cannot ask me for help with any such problem. I am worse than ignorant if I offer you advice on the topic.
There is no such thing as incomplete “antigens” or “antibodies”. The active site of the antigen matches the antibody and that is what causes the effect.
What’s even more daft is the notion that your body cannot make new antibodies if it already has antibodies to a specific disease. Which is why we are so pathetically weak against the cold and die from the dreaded rhinovirus.
This is just incorrect. It’s pseudoscientific nonsense. Nothing here is correct from start to finish. Immunological Perfection? No. Perfect response to Natural Pertussis? No. Incomplete Immunity? No. This would only work if our immune systems functioned in a radically different way.
And remember this is someone saying that it’s safer to get pertussis than it is to take a vaccine while ignoring the pain, suffering and indeed mortality of pertussis.
