A website self-defined as Catholic has echoed the results of a report published by an organisation known as America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), in which it is claimed that vaccines against Covid-19 “produce many billions of Spike protein in their receptors” and makes “vaccinated individuals transmit particles to close contacts, causing diseases to them”.
This is FALSE. The hoax that vaccines make the S or Spike protein to transmit airborne and through direct contact is quite recent. The first comments on this seem to date from the beginning of May 2021, when a Facebook post linked a text supposedly published by the John Hopkins University, in which it affirmed that the S proteins that vaccines against Covid-19 produce “can be transmitted”. Facebook itself insists that this publication has false content. It has also been denied by Reuters.
This statement has been brought to the fore again in the guide published by AFLDS. But science has disproved that the S protein, or any other protein, is capable of airborne or any other form of transmission, and even less to cause disease to close contacts.
“Vaccine-related proteins are not infectious, and cannot be passed from person to person”, Adelaida Sarukhan, an immunologist and science writer at the Institute for Global Health (IS Global, in Catalan) in Barcelona, told Verificat. “To have transmission from one vaccinated person to another, the vaccine would need to be a whole, live virus and be able to replicate within the host. None of the vaccines for Covid-19 have these characteristics: most of them inoculate the S protein of the virus or induce its production, which itself alone cannot infect or replicate”, she concludes.
Another thing that is impossible is to transmit the disease itself after receiving the injection. It is known that the vaccine avoids developing the more severe cases of Covid-19, but not the infection and, thus, transmission.
This is the reason why health authorities continue recommending social distancing, use of masks, and avoiding crowded spaces.
