Nothing in your post showed evidence of "short or long term effects" from vaccination. Just blatant baseless fearmongering. One of the largest triggers for long-term autoimmunity is high-dose viral infection... guess what the easiest way to prevent that?
I don't think anything I wrote rose to the level of fearmongering.
Setting your knee jerk response aside for a moment, what is your take on microbiomes and their effect on our health? More specifically, is it possible that vaccines can disrupt a healthy microbiome as Professor Ley asserted (please don't tell me she's a quack too!)
Yes the microbiome has tremendous impact on how our immune system developed and learns what’s good and bad.
Yes it’s possible vaccines influence that
Yes it’s possible hygienic lifestyle influences that
Yes it’s possible food influences that
Yes it’s possible genetics influence that
Yes it’s possible viral infections influence that's
We are just barely beginning to understand the cause effect relationships in the microbiome. What we can do it look at vaccinated populations vs unvaccinated and see if there are safety signals for autoimmunity. By and large there are not!
Vaccines carry very small risks of adverse effects. All the things I listed can cause bad things too!
The risks of COVID infection so far outweigh the risks of the vaccine that it’s just disingenuous to posture about “long term risks” when the preventative benefit is so massive. It comes across as speculation to defend preexisting dogma.
