A flawed Covid-19 vaccination approach?

I wrote a long post last night explaining why I'm not ready to have one of the current crop of Covid-19 vaccinations.

Today's post cuts to the chase if last night's post is TLDR.

Due to Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE), vaccinations can actually make you sicker on a secondary infection.

Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) vaccinations:

I know I'm cherry picking from this paper released (by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine) on 21 Febuary 2021, but it is pretty damned complicated reading....

Read it yourself if you have time - it suggests that the current vaccination approach is flawed.

They'll get it right soon hopefully!

Excerpts follow:

Vaccine Risks for Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE)
This leads to the prediction that new attempts to create either SARS-CoV-1 vaccines, MERS-CoV vaccines (81), or SARS-CoV-2 vaccines have potentially higher risks for inducing ADE in humans facilitated by antibody infection of phagocytic immune cells.

Summary
Given past data on multiple SARS-CoV-1 and MERS-CoV vaccine efforts have failed due to ADE in animal models (75, 81), it is reasonable to hypothesize a similar ADE risk for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and vaccines.

This is quite an interesting read too.
