A recently published study by the Cleveland Clinic suggests that the Covid-19 vaccines increase the risk of contracting the disease and that each subsequent booster further increases this risk. The report revealed that those with three or more shots were more than three times as likely to be infected as those who hadn’t gotten any.

The report also suggests that those who have not received any Covid shots have the lowest risk of getting Covid. While it is worth noting that this study showed only a small increase in infection risk, this is still in direct opposition to the way the vaccinations are being advertised to the public.

The goal of this study was to “evaluate whether a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine protects against COVID-19.”

The study was conducted on 51,001 employees, 41% of whom had already been infected with Covid-19, and 83% of whom had received at least two doses of a Covid vaccine. 5% of participants contracted Covid-19 during the 13-week study period.

The majority of participants in the study were “young individuals.”

The researchers found that the “association of increased risk of Covid-19 with higher numbers of prior vaccine doses in [the] study, was unexpected.”

The report reads:

“Recognition that the original COVID-19 vaccines provided much less protection after the emergence of the Omicron variant, spurred efforts to produce newer vaccines that were more effective. These efforts culminated in the approval by the US Food and Drug Administration, on 31 August 2022, of bivalent COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, which contained antigens represented in the original vaccine as well as antigens representing the BA.4/BA.5 lineages of the Omicron variant. Given the demonstrated safety of the earlier mRNA vaccines and the perceived urgency of need of a more effective preventative tool, these vaccines were approved without demonstration of effectiveness in clinical studies.”

The report said that the “risk of COVID-19 varied by the phase of the epidemic in which the subject’s last prior COVID-19 episode occurred.”

“In decreasing order of risk of COVID-19 were those never previously infected, those last infected during the pre-Delta or Delta phase, those last infected during the Omicron BA.1/BA.2 phase, and those last infected during the Omicron BA.4/BA.5 phase.”

“The risk of COVID-19 also varied by the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses previously received. The higher the number of vaccines previously received, the higher the risk of contracting COVID-19.”

The report continued, saying, “The multivariable analyses also found that, the more recent the last prior COVID-19 episode was the lower the risk of COVID-19, and that the greater number of vaccine doses previously received the higher the risk of COVID-19.”

The researchers concluded that “it is important to examine whether multiple vaccine doses given over time may not be having the beneficial effect that is generally assumed,” and that “this study found an overall modest protective effect of the bivalent vaccine booster against COVID-19, among working-aged adults. The effect of multiple COVID-19 vaccine doses on future risk of COVID-19 needs further study.
