Do We Need FIVE Vaccine Doses To Be Fully Vaccinated?

Do We Need FIVE Vaccine Doses To Be Fully Vaccinated?

Do we need FIVE vaccine doses to qualify as fully vaccinated against COVID-19?

Find out what’s the new viral claim, and what the FACTS really are!


Do We Need FIVE Vaccine Doses To Be Fully Vaccinated?

Alternative health and alternative news websites like Natural News have been pushing a new claim recently.

According to these websites, a Swedish professor, Matti Sällberg, claimed that we “will need FIVE vaccine doses for immunity” and if we “don’t submit“, we “no longer qualify as fully vaccinated“.

The underlying suggestion is that COVID-19 vaccines do not offer immunity or are useless against COVID-19, and are merely a money making scam by Big Pharma.

Natural News pointed out that in Israel, 85% to 90% of hospitalised patients were vaccinated.

Natural News also claimed that the Swedish professor has an ulterior motive – Sällberg is the founder of vaccine manufacturer Svenska Vaccin Fabriken (SVF).

Shocking? Let me show you what the FACTS really are…


Truth : We Do NOT Need FIVE Vaccine Doses To Be Fully Vaccinated

Naturally, Natural News is peddling fake news as usual, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Professor Sällberg Did Not Say We Need FIVE Vaccine Doses

Professor Sällberg did NOT say that we “require FIVE vaccine doses”, as alleged by Natural News and other websites peddling “alternative health” and “alternative facts”.

Here is a summary of what he actually said in his interview with Aftonbladet :

  • Planning for a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is extremely reasonable, as the immune response slowly subsides [over time].
  • We do not know yet if people may have lost their protection within the year, but if you get a third dose, [the protection] will be activated again.
  • There is no indication that protection has begun to fail, [but] it is not at all unlikely that … you have to give recurring doses.
  • Biology says that a fading immune response is not unlikely. If so, it may be a third, fourth, maybe fifth dose.

As you can see, he never once said that we will require five vaccine doses.

Where did those websites get the idea that we are required to have five vaccine doses? Did they make up the story? Think about that.

Fact #2 : We Don’t Need Five Doses To Qualify As Fully-Vaccinated

There is no requirement to receive five vaccine doses to qualify as being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19.

In fact, you cannot even get a third booster dose for COVID-19 in most countries, because that has not even been approved!

Professor Sällberg also pointed out in his Aftonbladet interview that :

Anyone who has received two doses is considered fully vaccinated according to the first vaccination schedule, and there is no indication that protection has begun to fail.

The fully-vaccinated status also depends on the vaccine. Some vaccines – like the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine – only requires a single dose to be considered fully-vaccinated.

Fact #3 : Booster Doses Are Like Refresher Classes

COVID-19 vaccines are nothing more than self-defence classes for our immune system, teaching it how to identify and produce antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

After you are fully vaccinated, you will have high levels of protective antibodies. But these will slowly decrease over time, unless your body is actively defending itself against COVID-19.

Even so, the immune system will still remember how to identify and create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It just needs more time to ramp up its defences.

That’s where a booster dose comes in. It reminds your immune system that COVID-19 is still around, and triggers production of fresh antibodies.

It literally works like a refresher course of a COVID-19 self-defence class for your immune system.

Fact #4 : Israel Has Herd Immunity From Vaccines

Natural News insinuates that vaccination cannot prevent COVID-19 in Israel, stating that 85% to 90% of hospitalised cases were vaccinated.

That’s actually not true, because it involves cherry picking data to convey a false narrative.

85% of Israeli adults are vaccinated, so they have already achieved herd immunity. That’s why there are very few COVID-19 cases in Israel.

Not only are the vaccines protecting the vaccinated, they are also protecting the unvaccinated.

To get their alleged vaccine breakthrough rate of 85% to 90%, they have to look at very specific dates like 13 and 14 July 2021.

Fact #5 : SVK Does Not Currently Make COVID-19 Vaccines

Natural News falsely claimed that Professor Matti Sällberg has an ulterior motive to call for COVID-19 booster doses – he’s the founder of a vaccine company called Svenska Vaccin Fabriken (SVK).

The truth is SVK does not currently make COVID-19 vaccines, so is not able to financially benefit from any booster dose programme.

SVK is developing a COVID-19 vaccine – the SVF-002, but it is still in preclinical development, and has not even undergone a Phase 1 trial.

The SVF-002 vaccine candidate, even if it works, is unlikely to be approved until the middle or end of 2022.

With this fact check, I hope you can see how just dangerous websites that peddle alternative health and alternative facts really are.

They intentionally twist facts to convey a false narrative, to scare people into not protecting themselves with COVID-19 vaccines.

Why? Is it to sell the supplements and fake cures that they are always promoting? That is certainly an ulterior motive you have to think about.

Please think on that, and SHARE this fact check with your family and friends, so they won’t be fooled by such lies and misinformation!

Did Salk Institute Prove Covid-19 Vaccines Cause Blood Clots?

Did researchers from the Salk Institute just prove that COVID-19 vaccines are designed to cause deadly blood clots?

Find out what new lies Mike Adams from Natural News just posted, and what the FACTS really are!


Did Salk Institute Prove Covid-19 Vaccines Cause Blood Clots?

Mike Adams from NaturalNews is at it again, crafting new lies using the same scientific studies that he abhors so much. Hypocrisy much?

Here is a new piece of fake news trash that Mike just put up on Natural News, and people are sharing on social media as if it’s true.

BOMBSHELL Salk Institute science paper reveals the covid spike protein is what’s causing deadly blood clots… and it’s in all the covid vaccines (by design)…

Well-documented article reveals the shocking truth that covid vaccines are DESIGNED to cause widespread injury and death!

The prestigious Salk Institute, founded by vaccine pioneer Jonas Salk, has authored and published a bombshell scientific article revealing that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is what’s actually causing vascular damage in covid patients and covid vaccine recipients, promoting the strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots and other harmful reactions that have already killed thousands of Americans (source: VAERS.hhs.gov).

Critically, all four covid vaccine brands currently in widespread use either inject patients with the spike protein or, via mRNA technology, instruct the patient’s own body to manufacture spike proteins and release them into their own blood. This floods the patient’s body with the very spike protein that the Salk Institute has now identified as the smoking gun cause of vascular damage and related events (such as blood clots, which are killing many people who take the vaccines).

Put simply, it means the vaccines were designed to contain the very element that’s killing people.


NO. Salk Institute Did NOT Even Say Covid-19 Vaccines Cause Blood Clots!

Mike Adams and Natural News are infamous for writing fake stories, designed to scare people.

Why? So you will share his posts and he makes money from advertisements and selling you fake cures.

This is yet another FAKE STORY written by Mike to scare you, and here are the FACTS!

Fact #1 : SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein Is A Defining Feature

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to specifically target the spike protein (S 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

The spike protein is both the “uniform” and the “weapon” of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Think of it as the German spiked helmet of World War I – the Pickelhaube. It is distinctive, and the spike can even be used as a weapon!

After your immune system is trained by the vaccines, it can immediately identify the real SARS-CoV-2 virus by its spike protein.

This allows it to quickly produce antibodies that bind with the spike protein, and blocking the real virus from attacking your cells!

Fact #2 : mRNA Vaccines Do Not Release Spike Proteins Into Blood

This is an outright lie by Mike Adams, and he knows it. Anyone who read the news (never mind press releases!) on mRNA vaccines from Pfizer or Moderna know that :

  • they teach our cells to create the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins.
  • these spike proteins are then expressed (presented) on the surface of those cells

These spike proteins are NOT released in our blood, as Mike falsely claimed.

Fact #3 : Salk Institute Did Not Even Look At COVID-19 Vaccines!

The Salk Institute press release, which you can read in its entirety here, did not even mention COVID-19 vaccines, much less looked at whether they cause blood clots.

So how did COVID-19 vaccines get mentioned? Mike Adams added that in himself.

Fact #4 : Study Proved That COVID-19 Is A Vascular Disease

The study, which was published in Circulation Research on 30 April 2021, showed that “COVID-19 is a vascular disease“.

The co-senior author of the paper, Assistant Research Professor Uri Manor said, “A lot of people think of it as a respiratory disease, but it’s really a vascular disease. That could explain why some people have strokes, and why some people have issues in other parts of the body. The commonality between them is that they all have vascular underpinnings.

In other words, COVID-19 is more than just a “cold” or even a respiratory illness. It is also a vascular disease that can cause strokes and other problems.

Fact #5 : Study Showed That SARS-CoV-2 Spike Proteins Can Damage Cells

While scientists are not surprised the COVID-19 is a vascular disease, they did not know how the SARS-CoV-2 affects the vascular system.

So these researchers created a pseudovirus that is surrounded by the SARS-CoV-2 classic crown of spike proteins and tested it on an animal model, and in the lab.

They discovered that the spike proteins ALONE are sufficient to damage the cells when they bind to their ACE2 receptors.

This is where Mike jumps in and claims that the spike proteins in COVID-19 vaccines can therefore cause the same damage. We will show you why that is simply FALSE.

Fact #6 : Binding Of Spike Protein With ACE2 Receptors Causes Damage

This is the important part – the study showed that it is the act of the spike proteins binding to the ACE2 receptors that damages the cells!

This binding disrupted ACE2’s molecular signaling to mitochondria (organelles that generate energy for cells), causing the mitochondria to become damaged and fragmented.

That means the spike proteins by themselves do not damage the cells. They must bind with the cells’ ACE2 receptors – as a real SARS-CoV-2 virus would – to damage them.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Spike Proteins Do NOT Bind With ACE2 Receptors

The mere presence of spike proteins in COVID-19 vaccines alone cannot trigger cellular damage, because the binding must be activated by cellular proteases such as TMPRSS2 and Furin.

Think of TMPRSS2 and Furin as the hands that turn the key (spike protein) once it goes into the lock (ACE2 receptor). Without them, the key cannot unlock the door!

TMPRSS2 is primarily expressed by endothelial cells in our respiratory and digestive tracts. Furin is more common, but they are both not present in the cells of the skeletal muscle that the vaccines are injected into.

Even more importantly, skeletal muscle cells do not have the ACE2 receptor, which is abundant in :

  • lung alveolar epithelial cells
  • enterocytes of the small intestine
  • arterial and venous endothelial cells
  • arterial smooth muscle cells

That is why SARS-CoV-2 attacks our respiratory and vascular systems, not our muscles.

That is also why the protein spikes produced by COVID-19 vaccines will not damage our cells, or cause blood clots.

Fact #8 : Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots Are Rare

Mike falsely claimed that COVID-19 vaccines cause “strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots and other harmful reactions that have already killed thousands of Americans”.

He claimed the US VAERS system as a source. That is the American version of the UK Yellow Card system – an open system in which anyone from anywhere can make any claim they want, without verification.

As we demonstrated with the Yellow Card system, you can pretty much post any story you want into these systems.

The truth is vaccine-induced blood clots are very, very rare. In fact, it has been established that only COVID-19 vaccines from AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson can potentially cause VITT – Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia.

Even then, VITT is extremely rare, so rare that you are 219X more likely to die from a COVID-19 infection than get VITT from an AstraZeneca vaccine!

Recommended : AstraZeneca Vaccine Blood Clot Risk : How Dangerous Is It?

Risk Difference
Thrombocytopenia in
severe COVID-19 cases
Up to 95% 45,238X
in COVID-19 cases
Up to 41% 19,524X
Dying from COVID-19 Infection 0.25% to
119X to 4762X
Thrombosis from OCP
Up to 0.46% 219X
Thrombosis from Smoking 0.18% 85.7X
Thrombosis from OCP
Up to 0.01% 4.8X
Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia
(AstraZeneca Vaccine)
0.0021% Baseline

Fact #9 : VITT Is Not Caused By Spike Protein

As I noted in my earlier article on VITT, a pre-print study concluded that the antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 spike protein do NOT cross-react with platelet factor 4.

Therefore, it seems likely that the adenovirus vectors used in both AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines could be the trigger for this reaction.

After all, other vaccines that target the same SARS-CoV-2 spike protein – like the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines – do not have this risk.

Fact #10 : Vaccines Are Designed To Save Lives

This is the most egregious lie by Mike Adams and Natural News.

Vaccines are not, and have never been, “designed to cause widespread injury and death”, as he claims.

Vaccines have been proven time and time again that they save lives, period. No ifs, no buts, no maybes.

We even have the evidence for the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines in saving lives. Look at how drastically Israel cut down on COVID-19 cases by using vaccinations and lockdowns.

If COVID-19 vaccines kill or injure people, do you really think Israel would have continued vaccinating their people?
