Kim Iversen: Does mRNA Change Your DNA? Breaking Down AP and Reuters Fact Check

Kim Iversen breaks down the Associate Press and Reuters’ fact check on the true impact of mRNA vaccines.

According to the CDC mRNA vaccines do not contain any live virus. Instead, they work by teaching our cells to make a harmless piece of a “spike protein,” which is found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19. After making the protein piece, cells display it on their surface. Our immune system then recognizes that it does not belong there and responds to get rid of it. When an immune response begins, antibodies are produced, creating the same response that happens in a natural infection.

In contrast to mRNA vaccines, many other vaccines use a piece of, or weakened version of, the germ that the vaccine protects against. This is how the measles and flu vaccines work. When a weakened or small part of the virus is introduced to your body, you make antibodies to help protect against future infection.

Both messenger RNA (mRNA) and viral vector COVID-19 vaccines work by delivering instructions (genetic material) to our cells to start building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19.

After the body produces an immune response, it discards all the vaccine ingredients just as it would discard any information that cells no longer need. This process is a part of normal body functioning.

The genetic material delivered by mRNA vaccines never enters the nucleus of your cells, which is where your DNA is kept. Viral vector COVID-19 vaccines deliver genetic material to the cell nucleus to allow our cells to build protection against COVID-19. However, the vector virus does not have the machinery needed to integrate its genetic material into our DNA, so it cannot alter our DNA.

According to the CDC all COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States are effective at preventing COVID-19. Getting sick with COVID-19 can offer some protection from future illness, sometimes called “natural immunity,” but the level of protection people get from having COVID-19 may vary depending on how mild or severe their illness was, the time since their infection, and their age.

Getting a COVID-19 vaccination is also a safer way to build protection than getting sick with COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccination helps protect you by creating an antibody response without you having to experience sickness. Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Getting sick with COVID-19 can cause severe illness or death, and we can’t reliably predict who will have mild or severe illness. If you get sick, you can spread COVID-19 to others. You can also continue to have long-term health issues after COVID-19 infection.

While COVID-19 vaccines are effective, studies have shown some declines in vaccine effectiveness against infections over time, especially when the Delta variant was circulating widely.

  1. Kim is the only reason this show still has credibility. Almost all of the other talking heads are controlled opposition and negatively contribute to her segments. If Kim was alone then the show would be even better.

  2. They are making synthetic designer viruses using recombinant DNA. They are making viruses not found in nature.. Our natural immune systems are designed to protect us from natural bacterial and viral infections found in nature..
    There's a shitload of published scientific research articles on NIH website..
    Recombinant DNA has been controversial for decades..
    Biotechnology has the potential to create novel diagnostics, vaccines, drugs, and other medical countermeasures needed to detect, prevent, and treat infectious diseases. For example, the coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the promising role that biotechnology can play in this way.Nov 20, 2020
    Spike proteins are harmful as well..

  3. Wow they found that if you inject a rat with the vaccine it turns into a Democrat. Sorry just had to do it. I'm not taking the jab because, we just don't know long term.

  4. All you need to know is this … autopsies of Covid victims were banned in NY when it would have revealed the Ventilators were actually increasing fatalities (in Wuhan late Feb 2020, autopsies were done that found ventilators were causing the lungs to fail and they switched to another solution which dropped fatality rate overnight from 100 to 50). And it’s so obvious they needed to test the liver cells of people Covid fatalities. WE KNOW WHY IT DID NOT HAPPEN (they did not want to find out)

  5. Stop the video or go back to 6:08 and look at the expressions on the faces of the co-hosts. They're facial expressions could have been made in a petrie dish and cloned! You just know they're both thinking OMG here she goes again doing actual news… wonder how long we'll be banned this time! Keep up the fight Kim you're one of the few with the courage to actually report the truth!

  6. More research needed, it's true then, just we need to sell more vaccines before we tell the truth by then it'll be too late for 95% of the worlds population to change their mind.

    The media aren't journalists, they get paid to publish stories not write them, pharma writes them for media to print and make it LOOK like it's news, it's not.

  7. People are basic dumb lemmings. If you feed them garbage they believe it. DNA is not altered permanently this tech has been studied for years. It's not been Complete fools.

  8. I posted a short video, featuring Dr. Peter McCullough, concerning this Sweden study and Facebook deleted it and locked me out of posting and commenting for 24 hours.

  9. Why vaccinate individuals who are not at risk of severe outcomes of an infection ?

    Why sanction a great power that is virtually self-sufficient, increasing inflation ?

    Why propagate Malthusianism and environmentalism to an emergent Global South whithout demonstrating a sustainable economy, domestically ?

  10. Also note that the Hill was one of those media outlets that did go along with the censorship. Now that the cat is out of the bag they are trying to pretend they are honestly reporting on it.

  11. whether it alters a persons DNA would be simple to find out. As simple as, for example, determining whether the covid virus was man made. But the government and media put out such a smokescreen that drowned anyone who questioned their narrative they were until recently successful. DNA sequencing of reproductive and immune cells would easily answer the question, just as thousands of labs could have sequenced the covid virs and seen the obvious fact it was not natural.

    The real question is, how many people were killed by the media and government propaganda hammering fear into the whole worlds population for years. With the placebo effect in some cases being as high as 40%, in curing a disease or sickness, it also works the other way. Hammer people with fear they will die or get severely sick if they get a cold virus, how many will die from the stress and placebo effect.
    The media is responsible for possibly hundreds of thousands of deaths. Now they are trying to pretend they are not responsible.
