Dr. Byram W. Bridle, PhD is banned from the University of Guelph campus for being COVID unvaccinated in spite of his being naturally immune. That would make a lot more sense to him if he were not an immunologist.
Aaron Kheriaty, MD, like Bridle, has had COVID, but of course that does not matter.
The University seems to be attempting to force him to resign:
…the current administrative designation, where I am neither able to work at the University nor permitted to pursue work elsewhere, was not a development I had anticipated. The University may be hoping this pressure will lead me to resign “voluntarily,” which would remove grounds for my lawsuit: if I resign prior to being terminated by the University, I have no legal claim of harm.
Note that the link in the first paragraph: “(which behave very differently than those safely encoded by vaccines)” to Spike Protein Behavior was not included in the Salk article originally, when Bret and Heather looked at it. They response is below. There is also some discussion of the possible lab leak and some pedantic ranting against common meaning of “theory”.
Alex talks with Dr. Byram Bridle, an Associate Professor on Viral Immunology at the University of Guelph about new peer-reviewed studies that suggests there may be terrifying reasons side effects such as heart inflammation, VITT, and other serious issues may occur in those who have been vaccinated.

Rhonda Patrick vs Byram Bridle — Coronavirus Vaccination, referenced is Bridle’s COVID-19 Vaccines and Children:A Scientist’s Guide for Parents, which includes:
The current scientific uncertainties demand that the administration of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine to children, adolescents, and young adults of child-bearing age be paused until proper scientific studies that focus on the safety and pharmacokinetics and biodistribution of the vaccines and the vaccine-encoded spike protein can be conducted.COVID-19 Vaccines and Children:A Scientist’s Guide for Parents, Dr. Byram W. Bridle, PhD
Geert Vanden Bossche posits that a mass vaccination regime targeting very specific viral structures during an ongoing pandemic amounts to a global gain of function experiment. Further, that the resulting variants could be able to affect the vaccinated even more than the unvaccinated as the infection may elicit an immune memory response that is ineffective and that can interfere with the working of the general non-memory immune system, the system that may be protecting the young.
ZDoggMD mixes some rebuttal with some rather immature ad hominem:
Edward Nirenberg gets more into the nitty gritty in: Addressing Geert Vanden Bossche’s Claims. Most relevant to any possible virus evolution is the question of to what extent the vaccines are “leaky”. Relevant to safety is if they compromise natural immunity.
Dr. Izzy Gerstenbluth discusses mass vaccination during a pandemic with his colleague, Dr. Ashley Duits:
Bret and Heather discuss the Facebook shenanigans:
There are even some, perhaps overfly conspiratorially minded and on the “anti-vax” side, such as Rosemary Frei, who seem to believe that Vanden Bossche constitutes an insider play to add credibility to the current COVID response. Weird.
A similar argument is made by Luc Montagnier, who won a Nobel Prize for the discovery of HIV, some genetic material of which he thinks was inserted into SARS-CoV-2 before it leaked from a lab: Bombshell: Nobel Laureate Reveals that Covid Vaccine is ‘Creating Variants’
No real agreement from these three, Dr Byram Bridle, Dr Knut Wittkowski, Dr Mike Yeadon: Vanden Bossche’s Theory: Mass Vaccination Will Breed Dangerous Variants – Fact or Fiction?
And there is some official acknowledgement now:
There are four major risks associated with high numbers of infections. These are an increase in hospitalisations and deaths, more ‘Long-COVID’; workforce absences (including in the NHS); and the increased risk of new variants emerging. The combination of high prevalence and high levels of vaccination creates the conditions in which an immune escape variant is most likely to emerge. The likelihood of this happening is unknown, but such a variant would present a significant risk both in the UK and internationally.https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1001160/S1300_SAGE_93_minutes_Coronavirus__COVID-19__response__7_July_2021.pdf
Mathew Crawford does a series of articles on the subject:
This is a text book case of a man made vaccine escape program. Great for Booster revenue. Poor for trust in public health officials that have politicized these obsolete and somewhat useless vaccines.anadamide

Peter Daszak’s name seems to come up quite a bit:
H1N1, Smallpox, Venezuelan equine encephalitis (VEE), SARS, and Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) have documented cases of lab leaks:
For H1N1 one piece of evidence was missing evolution:
In 1977, H1N1 influenza A virus reappeared after a 20-year absence. Genetic analysis indicated that this strain was missing decades of nucleotide sequence evolution, suggesting an accidental release of a frozen laboratory strain into the general population.The Re-Emergence of H1N1 Influenza Virus in 1977: A Cautionary Tale for Estimating Divergence Times Using Biologically Unrealistic Sampling
Based on available evidence, the 1977 strain was indeed too closely matched to decades-old strains to likely be a natural occurrence.The Reemergent 1977 H1N1 Strain and the Gain-of-Function Debate
