    He has impressive credentials, but I'm not sure if the variant threat is as ominous as presented in some messaging. (Maybe my COVID worry meter is pegged.)

    Vanden Bossche’s Dangerous Fallacy: En Mass Vaccination, Not Natural Infection, As The Source of COVID-19 Variants.

    Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche has been promoting the idea that population level COVID-19 vaccination can cause emergence of dangerous SARS-CoV-2 mutant variants capable of immune evasion. Therefore, he proposes that the world should abandon en masse COVID-19 vaccination.

    This is potentially catastrophic error in scientific reasoning.

    Vanden Bossche’s idea is captured in his statement that “any intervention that increases the population’s immune pressure on the virus *without eradicating the virus* will inevitably lead to selective viral immune escape.”

    So Vanden Bossche’s argument goes something like this: because mass vaccination increases “immunological pressure” on the virus it leads to selection of variants capable of evading the immune response. He tries to make an analogy to antibiotic resistant bacteria, which emerge because of the inappropriate overuse of antibiotics.

    But these are straw-man arguments Vanden Bossche is making in order to ultimately drive the point that the world should abandon mass vaccinations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    This is a profoundly dangerous public health argument, because a logical error sits at its core: That the immunological selective pressure introduced by vaccine immunity is the dominant source of mutant variants.

    This assumption is simply false.

    Let me explain...
