Do mRNA Vaccines Create Dangerous, Contagious Prions?!

Do mRNA vaccines create contagious prions that cause neurodegenerative diseases?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : mRNA Vaccines Create Dangerous, Contagious Prions!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The Expose (formerly The Daily Expose), which claims or suggests that mRNA vaccines create contagious prions that cause neurodegenerative diseases!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Truth : mRNA Vaccines Do Not Create Dangerous, Contagious Prions!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The Expose, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : mRNA Vaccines Do Not Create Prions

Let me start by pointing out that mRNA vaccines do not create prions or cause prion diseases, which are transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) – brain disorders caused by prion proteins.

Even though anti-vaccine activists continue to make that claim, they have provided no evidence to back that up. The two papers quoted in the The Expose article do not prove that mRNA vaccines create prions:

The Bart J. Classen paper was just a 2.5-page opinion piece, without any actual evidence, that was published in a journal that is not only listed in the Beall’s list of predatory publishers, it is not even indexed in PubMed!

The Idrees and Kumar study, on the other hand, referred only to the S1 spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but not the COVID-19 vaccines. Why? Because COVID-19 vaccines do not travel to the brain, whereas COVID-19 infections can and do enter the brain.

On top of that, the Idrees and Kumar study did not claim that the S1 spike protein created prions, or caused prion diseases. It only stated that the S1 spike protein might cause the aggregation (clumping) or “heparin-binding proteins”, which can lead to the degeneration of the brain.

So why on Earth would anyone claim that mRNA vaccines create prions, or cause prion diseases? Where is the evidence???

Fact #2 : No Evidence SARS-CoV-2 Virus Can Create Prions

The spike protein is both the “uniform” and the “weapon” of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The crown (corona) of protein spikes is what gives the virus family its distinctive appearance and name – coronavirus, and it is how the virus attaches to our cells and gains entry.

If the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein truly has multiple binding areas that can create prion proteins, then the virus itself would actually cause prion diseases!

As of 8 May 2021, there have been over 161 million cases of COVID-19 globally, with over 3.34 million deaths. There have been ZERO cases of prion diseases associated with COVID-19 infections.

If the COVID-19 coronavirus cannot even create prions, or cause prion diseases, then how can COVID-19 vaccines create prions, or cause prion diseases???

Fact #3 : All COVID-19 Vaccines Use Spike Protein

As I pointed out in my earlier article, COVID-19 vaccines are designed to specifically target the spike protein because :

  • it is the defining feature of the SARS-CoV-2 virus
  • antibodies targeting it will block the virus from binding with our cells

Regardless of what vaccine technology is used for COVID-19, the focus is to present the virus spike protein to the immune system, because it is exposed on the cell surface, and presents as a major antigen. Antibodies against the spike protein would also help to block the virus from attaching to our cells, and infecting them.

If the spike protein is what creates prions, or causes prion diseases, then all COVID-19 vaccines would create prions, or cause prion diseases, not just mRNA vaccines!

Yet, that is obviously not the case – no COVID-19 vaccine, whether based on mRNA or other technologies, create prions, or cause prion diseases.

Fact #4 : Viruses Multiply, Vaccines Won’t

I should also point out that if the spike protein is so dangerous, then it is even more important to get vaccinated against COVID-19. After all, viruses multiply, while the vaccines won’t!

Even if we simply look at the mRNA vaccines alone, they contain a limited number of mRNA instructions that encode for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The mRNA instructions enter a limited number of cells, which then produce and display those spike proteins on their surfaces, to trigger our immune system.

If you are infected by the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus though, it quickly hijacks your cells to produce millions of copies – each covered with spike proteins, which then infect even more cells, in an ever-expanding chain reaction.

Until your immune system learns to stop and defeat the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it will keep producing millions and millions of viruses that will circulate through your body, delivering those nasty spike proteins everywhere.

So if you are really worried about the spike protein, you should really get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #5 : The Expose Is Known For Fake News

Like Real Raw News and The People’s Voice, The Daily Expose is a website that capitalises on making shocking but fake or misleading stories to generate page views and money. It was later rebranded as The Expose.

Founded in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker – a welder from Lincolnshire, The Expose / Daily Expose is infamous for publishing COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news or misinformation, so you should NEVER share anything from Daily Expose / The Expose. Here are some of its stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Everything posted by The Expose / Daily Expose must be considered fake news, until proven otherwise.
