Four days ago Edward Nirenberg wrote a rebuttal of the idea that the “Covid19 vaccines are going to cause infertility. If you have come to my site to read my post titled “Pfizer vaccine is a sterilisation jab” Unlike Google I think it is only fair that you also read the opposing view. Edward Nirenberg knows what he is talking about as he writes about vaccines a lot. However I want to point out a few things and make a few comments if I may….and I may because this is my blog. 🙂
If we read Edward’s Introduction and his conclusion we learn a few things…here is his introduction.
The short version: Someone has claimed that the COVID-19 vaccines are going to cause infertility because of a shared amino acid sequence in the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 and a placental protein, which will make the immune system attack both as it can’t tell the difference. The truth? This sequence is too short for the immune system to meaningfully confuse it with placental proteins. It’s sort of like saying that you are going to be confused with a criminal because you wear a commonly sold red bracelet that was also found on the criminal. It’s not realistic. If this were true, we would also expect COVID-19 to cause early pregnancy loss a significant amount of the time. The evidence available to us does not support that this is the case. There is no reasonable basis to believe that vaccines against COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 will affect fertility.
He says – “Someone has claimed that the COVID-19 vaccines are going to cause infertility because of a shared amino acid sequence in the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 and a placental protein, which will make the immune system attack both as it can’t tell the difference”
Correct Edward. That someone is not me–I am educated to Year 12 only, and drive trucks for a living. The SOMEONE who made that claim is the ex-Pfizer head of respiratory research Dr. Michael Yeadon and the lung specialist and former head of the public health department Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg filed an application with the EMA, the European Medicine Agency responsible for EU-wide drug approval, for the immediate suspension of all SARS CoV 2 vaccine studies, in particular the BioNtech/Pfizer study on BNT162b (EudraCT number 2020-002641-42). https://2020news.de/en/dr-wodarg-and-dr-yeadon-request-a-stop-of-all-corona-vaccination-studies-and-call-for-co-signing-the-petition/
These two learned men are risking their lives speaking out in this way. I doubt that Edward is risking his life by being pro vaccine. Someone who is qualified to make such claims should be listened to. Not only are these two scientists qualified academically they also worked for Pfizer.
When Edwards says “The evidence available to us does not support that this is the case.” EXACTLY THE POINT!! That is why these two men have appealed to the EMA in Europe to suspend SARS CoV 2 studies.
Here is what the Petition sent to the European Medicines Agency on December 1st 2020 says…
This petition for a stay of action is submitted by the undersigned (“Petitioner” or “Lead Petitioner”) to request the EMA a) stay the Phase III clinical trial(s) of BNT162b (Eudra CT Number 2020-002641-42) in the EU (current protocol country: Germany) until study design is amended to conform with the requests in the “Action Requested” section (B.) below; and b) stay all other clinical trials of vaccine candidates designed to stop transmission of the virus from the vaccine recipient to others and/or prevent or mitigate symptoms of COVID-19 for which PCR results are the primary evidence of infection. Because of the compelling need to ensure the safety and efficacy of any COVID-19 vaccine licensed by the EMA(and/or the German Paul-Ehrlich-Institut), and to allow Petitioner the opportunity to seek appropriate emergency judicial relief should the EMA deny its Petition, Petitioner respectfully requests that EMA act on the instant Petition immediately.

Anyone who reads through this petition can see that these are serious claims that need to be thoroughly investigated by UNBIASED people. We know that that simply will not happen. Yet they must try.
Edward Nirenberg says however…
Some have argued that COVID-19 vaccines will cause infertility because of antibodies directed against the spike (S) protein will cross-react with syncytin proteins because of an underlying sequence homology. Let’s talk about whether this claim holds water. https://edwardnirenberg.medium.com/are-covid-19-vaccines-going-to-cause-infertility-939bbdb62b64
As we’ve established, the SCT supports the overall structure of the placental villi and has many important roles in supporting a pregnancy. SCT cells do indeed express syncytin-1, and an immune response directed against SCT cells can tragically result in early pregnancy loss. People with certain autoimmune diseases like antiphospholipid syndrome (aPS) and systemic lupus erythematosus are (SLE) are at much higher risk for pregnancy loss, which is thought to occur from an inappropriate immune response directed against the trophoblast cells. So that much of it makes sense-…..
Thank you Edward for confirming that “an immune response directed against SCT (syncytin)cells can tragically result in early pregnancy loss.
The thing is, there is already excellent reason to doubt this is a reasonable claim, and that’s because of COVID-19. While COVID-19 seems to be a more severe disease in pregnancy, there is no evidence right now of an increase in early pregnancy losses, as might be expected if there were an aberrant immune response directed against placental antigens.
Once again Edward says as he did in his opening remarks “there is no evidence right now” ….”The evidence available to us does not support that this is the case”
In other words take the vaccine and shut up –oh..and if evidence becomes available to us later…and it shows that your immune system is now being directed to attack your syncytin causing early termination of pregancy….oh well, oops, sorrryyyy.. 🙁
And also..the Petition that Wodarg and Yeadon have filed with the EMA is also concerned with the validity of the PCR test that this whole vaccine hinges upon. If the PCR test is faulty then why are we risking our health by taking an experimental vaccine such as the mRNA types being pushed through??
Wodarg and Yeadon state:
….the designs of clinical trials of vaccine candidates designed to stop transmission of the virus from the vaccine recipient to others and/or to prevent or mitigate symptoms of COVID-19 for which PCR results are the primary evidence of infection to be inadequate to accurately assess efficacy.
Go to 2020NEWS to read damning evidence that the PCR test itself which is used to give all the millions of COV19 case numbers is seriously flawed and should not be used to detect whether someone has the virus or not. The report containing the damning evidence is a peer reviewed paper by 22 scientists.
This paper will show numerous serious flaws in the Corman-Drosten paper, the significance of which has led to worldwide misdiagnosis of infections attributed to SARS-CoV-2 and associated with the disease COVID-19. We are confronted with stringent lockdowns which have destroyed many people’s lives and livelihoods, limited access to education and these imposed restrictions by governments around the world are a direct attack on people’s basic rights and their personal freedoms, resulting in collateral damage for entire economies on a global scale.
There are ten fatal problems with the Corman-Drosten paper which we will outline and explain in greater detail in the following sections.
Review report Corman-Drosten et al. Eurosurveillance 2020
If the PCR test is flawed as these 22 scientists claim including Corman who made the test….then we do NOT HAVE millions of cases of a virus happening at all. Thus the rushing of an experimental vaccine approach such as an mRNA vaccine through to the masses of frightened and bewildered people is more than just irresponsible. The attitude is take the shot and we will see what happens. And as we all know…Governments have made legislation so that vaccine makers are immune from prosecution and from being sued for damages caused by their products.
Edward Nirenberg closes his article after including all his proof that the vaccines are safe by saying
In short, the claim that the vaccines for COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 will cause infertility because of some kind of cross reactive immune response between the spike protein antigens and syncytin proteins is baseless. You should get these vaccines without fear of what they may do for your fertility.
And may their pain be upon your head Edward.
Second tight lockdown
UPDATE 9TH DECEMBER 2020
The UK Government has confirmed these infertility concerns in a 10 page Instruction pdf for Health Care workers using the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
