This series on the COVID-19 virus and the COVID-19 “vaccines” is dedicated to the memory of Yours Truly’s cousin Bill, who “died suddenly and unexpectedly” in September 2023.

Human beings shed items from their bodies every day: hair (and dandruff); tears; nasal mucus when blowing the nose or in sneezing; saliva; urine and feces; dead skin cells; sweat — among other things. They also shed particles of viruses — for example, of the “common cold” virus. They shed particles of vaccines — for example, of the Zaire ebolavirus vaccine, ERVEBO (, the Package Insert for ERVEBO; please refer to section 12.3 Pharmacokinetics, subsection Shedding). Today’s post will discuss the shedding of the COVID-19 virus itself, and of the COVID-19 “vaccines” (including the “2023-2024 Formula COVID-19 Vaccines.”) For purposes of today’s presentation, the trail begins with some details about how the COVID-19 virus itself works. Note: the knowledge base of exactly what is contained in the mRNA and spike protein of the original Wuhan Hu1 SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus; and, exactly what is contained in the modRNA and the other elements within the COVID-19 “vaccines”, is an evolving situation.

The following article, published on on 10 April 2020 (before any COVID-19 “vaccine” had been authorized or approved for use), is about how the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself enters into human cells via the ACE2 receptors, “The coronavirus sneaks into cells through a key receptor. Could targeting it lead to a treatment?”, by Kate Sheridan.) From the article: “In a healthy person, the ACE2 receptor chops up two forms of a protein called angiotensin to keep blood pressure stable, among other things. SARS and the novel coronavirus, however, use the receptors to infiltrate cells,…The virus can latch onto ACE2 and sneak inside, replicating itself inside the cell and then wreaking havoc throughout the body.” According to Wikipedia, ACE2 receptor cells, found in the intestines, kidney, testes, gallbladder, and heart, regulate blood pressure in the body. However, the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein damages the endothelium by “downregulating” the ACE2 receptor ability. The endothelium is a layer of cells lining the interior surfaces of blood vessels and of lymphatic vessels.

A paper in Nature was published on 10 May 2021 of a study of 31 SARS-CoV-2-infected patients in Italy. The data were collected between November 2019 (from seven healthy controls) and from 31 COVID-19 infected patients (hospitalized), prior to publication in May 2021. The treatments administered to the infected patients were Tocilizumab (an immunosuppressant drug), and Anakinra (a drug that treats Rheumatoid Arthritis), as no COVID-19 “vaccine” had yet been authorized or approved for use. The paper is found here:, “Identification and characterization of a SARS-CoV-2 specific CD8+T cell response with immunodominant features”; Pia Kvistborg, et al. (click on the DOI link for the full paper.) The authors of the paper were investigating the connection between the COVID-19 virus and its effects specifically on the CD8+ cells of the human body. What they found was quite interesting: the COVID-19 virus itself does indeed target many of the epitopes related to the CD8+ cells of the human immune system (an epitope is part of an antigen that is “recognized” by the immune system via antibodies, B cells, and T cells.)

Another paper, published on 31 July 2023, investigated the effects of the SARS-CoV-2 virus on the CD4 cells of the human body (, “SARS-CoV-2 uses CD4 to infect T helper lymphocytes”, Marcelo A. Mori, et al. Among the findings of this paper is that the SARS-CoV-2 virus attacks the ACE2 receptors of the CD4 lymphocyte cells.

Therefore, it was known as early as April 2020 that the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus itself attacks and damages important cells and mechanisms of the body of an infected person. What about the COVID-19 “vaccines?” It may be assumed that, since the COVID-19 “vaccines” contain the mRNA and spike protein elements of the original Wuhan Hu1 virus, these same elements are also contained in the COVID-19 “vaccines” — in addition to lab-engineered modifications to the mRNA, plus lipid nanoparticles and certain excipients (for lists of the excipients, please see:, “Pfizer-BioNTech (BNT162b2), Moderna (mRNA-1273) COVID-19 vaccines and hypersensitivity reactions”, Hannah N. Haq, et al., published 29 October 2022.) In the “Trougakos, et al. paper” of 20 April 2022, it was presented that the COVID-19 “vaccines” bind the spike protein to the ACE2 receptors in the body and contribute to what the paper calls “vaccination-related AEs” (Adverse Events.) The paper is found here:, “Adverse effects of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines” the spike hypothesis”, Ioannis P. Trougakos, et al. Figure 1 from the paper, below, shows how the lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) in the COVID-19 “vaccines” move the spike protein and its modRNA around in the cell structure of the “vaccinated” person’s body. Note the “Furin cleavage-S1 shedding” on the figure:

Yours Truly now turns to “The Elephant in the Room” — the phenomena of shedding of the COVID-19 virus itself; and the shedding of elements of the COVID-19 “vaccines.” The first aspect, the shedding of the COVID-19 virus itself, is presented and discussed here:, “New Onset Autoantibodies After Any Exposure to the Spike Protein of SARS-CoV-2”, by Walter M Chesnut. This article discusses, among other items, a paper published in February 2024,, “Prevalent and persistent new-onset autoantibodies in mild to severe COVID-19”, Peter Nilsson, et al. Yours Truly presents Figure 1 from this paper, an example of epitope mapping in neuro-COVID patients:

An autoantibody is an antibody made by the immune system that can attack one (or more) of the body’s own proteins; Graves’ Disease is an example of a condition induced by autoantibodies.

The Cleveland Clinic recognized, in 2022, that elements of the COVID-19 virus can be shed into the air:, “Coronavirus, COVID-19”, dated 3 January 2022. In this article, people were warned away from “close contact” with COVID-19 infected persons. “Close contact”, in the article, was defined as, “…being within 6 feet of an infected person from a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period.” The article also states that the virus can be spread via “respiratory droplets released into the air when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, sings or breathes near you.” (Yours Truly is aware that the “stay 6 feet away rule” is arbitrary, considering that aerosols [sneezes, for example] travel a lot farther than six feet and also at quite high speeds.)

So, it is known that the COVID-19 virus itself can be shed by an infected person into the air, and by an infected person onto another person. What about the shedding of elements and particles of the COVID-19 “vaccines” by a “vaccinated” person? This aspect is fueling new research that is being studied, compiled, and published (again, another piece of the evolving knowledge base regarding the virus and the “vaccines.”) For purposes of today’s post, Yours Truly will present the current findings of two such researchers: Dr. Ana Mihalcea, MD, PhD; and Dr. Pierre Kory, MD, co-founder of COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC); a paper co-authored by Stephanie Seneff, PhD; and a paper co-authored Jessica Rose, PhD, and Peter A. McCullough, MD, et al.

Dr. Mihalcea has conducted several darkfield microscopic investigations into the shedding of COVID-19 “vaccine” elements and particles from “vaccinated” persons. One of her blog articles about her findings is here:, “Darkfield Live Blood Analysis C19 Unvaccinated Blood. C19 Vax Shedding And Environmental Exposure Has Not Slowed Down”, published 23 January 2024. The image below is from her blood analysis of an “unvaccinated” person who was in close contact with a COVID-19 “vaccinated” person. Note the presence of unusual structures in this person’s blood:

Another of Dr. Mihalcea’s articles on her findings is here:, “Flourescent Filaments Coming Out of C19 Vaccinated Individuals Skin Glowing Under UV Light: Darkfield Microscopy”, published 28 January 2024. This article discusses what appear to be filaments of luciferase that were “shed” from COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons onto their skin. For further reference regarding the presence of luciferase in the COVID-19 “vaccines,” please see:, “Effect of mRNA-LNP components of two globally-marketed COVID-19 vaccines on efficacy and stability”, Lizhou Zhang, et al. Section Results of this paper discusses the experiments with the firefly luciferase contained in the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 “vaccine” LNP, ALC-0315, as compared to the firefly luciferase contained in the Moderna COVID-19 “vaccine” LNP, SM-102.

Dr. Pierre Kory is investigating the COVID-19 “vaccines” shedding phenomenon and is writing about it in his Substack. Here is his compendium post on the issue:, “mRNA Vaccine Shedding Of Spike Protein: State Of the Scientific and Clinical Evidence”, published 20 February 2024. There is a searchable PDF of the report here: Yours Truly urges interested persons to read through this report, especially starting on Page 15, SUMMARY OBSERVATIONS OF OVER 1000 CLINICAL REPORTS OF SHEDDING; and continuing on Page 23, CLINICAL GUIDANCE. The entire report has many “clickable” underlined hyperlinks to documents, other reports, clinical trials, and so on. His COVID-19 “vaccines” shedding series begins here:, “”Shedding” of Covid mRNA Vaccine Components and Products From The Vaccinated to the Unvaccinated – Part 1″, published 1 November 2023 (there are links to the other eight parts of the series at the end of Part 1.)

Stephanie Seneff, PhD, and Greg Nigh published a paper in May 2021 on multiple possible “unintended consequences” of the COVID-19 “vaccines.” The paper is found here: International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research 2(1), May 10, 2021, pages 38 – 79, “Worse Than the Disease? Reviewing Some Possible Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines Against COVID-19.” Yours Truly presents part of page 62 of the paper:

Yours Truly now turns to the peer-reviewed paper published in Cureus on 24 January 2024, and which paper was suddenly retracted by Cureus on 26 February 2024:, “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign”, M. Nathaniel Mead, Russ Wolfinger, Jessica Rose, Kris Denhaerynck, Steve Kirsch, Peter A. McCullough. (Cureus and its parent company, Springer / Nature have since been sued for $250 million in damages by Steve Kirsch on behalf of himself and the other co-authors of the paper, as it was not retracted by the authors themselves; nor was it retracted with their consent.) The paper presents and discusses the flawed, incomplete, and data-manipulated COVID-19 “vaccine” clinical trials. It also states the following, per the screenshot from the paper, below:

So, now it is known that both the COVID-19 virus itself, and elements of the COVID-19 “vaccines”, do shed. What are people, “vaccinated” and, especially, “unvaccinated” people, to do — stay away from others, including “vaccinated” friends and family? Go back to wearing the (mostly useless, except for certain healthcare settings, etc.) masks, the disposable gloves, the washing of clothes in hot water, etc.? Go back to “self-limiting” exposure to places like grocery stores, healthcare providers’ offices, and so on? Avoid all “unnecessary” travel? Are all people supposed to consider themselves to be COVID-19 “vaccinated,” either via injection or via shedding of COVID-19 “vaccine” elements by “vaccinated” persons?

The following is not professional medical or healthcare advice — they are only ideas and possible suggestions. In addition, since the investigation of COVID-19 virus shedding and COVID-19 “vaccines” shedding is an another evolving aspect of the entire situation, Yours Truly is not, and cautions against, “leaping to certain conclusions,” although ongoing research is uncovering important things; therefore, the following are presented as personal opinions for all people, “vaccinated” and “unvaccinated”, to consider:

It is important to make sure that one’s own general health and natural immune system are brought up to, and maintained, in the best shape possible: to avoid / prevent infection by the COVID-19 virus itself, and / or to be impacted by shedding of the COVID-19 virus from infected persons; and / or to be impacted by the shedding of COVID-19 “vaccines” elements by “vaccinated” persons. This could possibly include dietary changes, vitamins and supplements as needed, and so on. Note: Speak with a healthcare provider regarding possible interactions between certain supplements and any prescription drugs that a person may be taking: for example, Nattokinase can interact with prescription blood thinners or with aspirin.

It is important that regular mild to moderate exercise, especially walking, be undertaken for 30 minutes a day, at least five days of the week. This could also include activities such as gardening, Yoga, and so on.

It is important that techniques to reduce stress and eliminate unnecessary stressors be part of one’s life and practiced daily.

It is important to have and keep a positive connection to the Almighty God, or to whatever Benevolent Divine Force that one believes in.

It is important to follow a COVID-19 prevention / treatment / spike protein detox program — by COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons; by “unvaccinated” persons; and/or, by persons who have been infected by COVID-19 and have recovered — such as the programs outlined, for example, at COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC Alliance; or, through working with a medical professional who believes in such a program; or, through working with a reputable Naturopathic Doctor, herbalist, Traditional Chinese Medicine or Ayurvedic Medicine practitioner.

It is important that COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons do their own due diligence regarding the dangers of the COVID-19 “vaccines”, and decide for themselves whether or not to continue taking them.

It may be prudent, if a person feels “coming down with” an illness, or doesn’t feel “up to par,” to politely decline attendance at activities or events that were previously planned, in order to stay home and take care of oneself, and/or to seek medical care.

Excellent Work, per usual, PAVACA/CV/RDS. I’ve shared it on Gab to spread the word. God Bless YOU & your family. Sorry again about the loss of your precious cousin, may you & all of his loved ones be deeply comforted in the Lord.

Valerie Curren

Yes, all part of the “official” but mostly hidden depop agenda surely 🙁


Very good stuff here. Thank YOU PAVACA for posting this vital info.


Definitive and removes much of the guesswork about shedding from both virus and vaxxx.

And because so many urged folk to get the vaxxx and might wish to unburden themselves from their culpability of putting people at risk and informing them of an epic screw up, it’s okay to hold our breath while waiting for the MSM, Medical Authorities, and other agents to include employers that cajoled and or forced folk into the vaxxx to announce this by putting it on blast?

What? Breathe? That’s not going to happen?

But then that might mean it wasn’t a screw up at all, that it was and remains part of the plan! 🙄😮🤔 okay, okay, we strongly suspected such for a long time now. This is just another confirmation. (goodone btw) Still…. 😠

Thank You.

This is very important information. Thank you for all your diligence and hard work!

I am right there with you on the self-care part. That is the most important defense against all of this, and it’s really all we can do.

I will say this. If I MYSELF were on long-term pharmaceuticals like blood-thinners, I would find a naturopathic practitioner I could trust, and begin to move away from drugs, if such was AT ALL possible.

Think about it logically; if there are so many herbal medicines that are natural blood thinners, and therefore can’t be used with pharmaceutical blood thinners, why do we need the pharmaceuticals? I know why. MONEY for Big Pharma.

This is not medical advice, nor advice to just stop taking medicine. These are my thoughts on what we might ought to explore as individuals for our own health.


Thanks, P.

And oh, yes, I agree 100%!


Thank you, PAVACA!!!


Was going to mention stuff in your post.

FDA admits, higher risk of seizures for toddlers recently Jabbed.

  • Yet the bastards continue, recommending their Safe and Effective Jabs. CRIMINAL in my mind.
  • Compounding the problem, Quacks push the Jabs into toddlers.

^^^ This IS how they’ll get to 14 of 15 Will Go Away. Relentlessly Pushing Poison.

  :wpds_arrow:  FDA, CDC, NIH would do well to listen to the Truth Speaking experts at QTree.


Very grateful for this, PAVACA

Will take days to absorb it all.



Always appreciate your articles and posts.

Great information, tying it together. Recommendations and links, invaluable.

If I am fortunate enough to have a Jabbed person choose to talk about being Jabbed and having health issues, I’ll recall the following nugget.

  • “Speak the truth in humility to all people.” 
  • If they are seeking information, help, I can do that.

Thank you!


At first I was waiting for people to connect the deaths of loved ones with the jab, and then that started happening so that some people are more aware (IMO not enough). And the next logical step would be to look at who/what entity is behind all of this. I’m hoping it will get “interesting.”


Thank you for another example of your excellent work, Pavaca!

The redoubtable Walter M Chesnut is on the trail of something very interesting, which ties in with “The Elephant in the Room” post of Yours Truly earlier this week on this board:
“Persistence of Spike Protein Induces a State of Chronic Disease (Parallels to Asbestos): The Essence of Long COVID”
Walter M Chesnut
26 March 2024
Yours Truly: Mr. Chesnut presents and discusses a paper published on 3 March 2024 by (the DOI document was published on 24 March 2024.) regarding the presence of “Long COVID” symptoms in COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons up to 245 days post-“vaccination.” [Note: 245 days post-“vaccination” is not the “be-all-and-end-all” number of days: It is only what was studied and presented in the paper cited.]
This small study included the following COVID-19 “vaccines” — Pfizer-BioNTech; Moderna; Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), which was withdrawn for use in the United States in the spring of 2023; and AstraZeneca. There were 50 patients in the study. They were compared to “vaccinated”, healthy control patients.
The 50 patients who presented with “Long COVID” symptoms complained of:
brain fog;
All four of the COVID-19 “vaccines” listed above were involved in the presence of symptoms.
It was found that the CD16+ immune system cells of the 50 study patients had elevated levels of cytokines (cells that “signal” inflammation in the body.)
It was found that the elevated cytokine levels in the 50 study patients were in their monocytes (white blood cells.) [Note: CD16 cells can be shed from the body via the monocytes:]
The paper published originally on 3 March is here:
The same paper, in DOI document form, published on 24 March 2024, is here:
“Persistence of S1 Spike Protein in CD16+ Monocytes up to 245 Days in SARS-CoV-2 Negative Post COVID-19 Vaccination Individuals with Post-Acute Sequelae of COVId-19 (PASC)-Like Symptoms”
Ram Yogendra, et al.
One: “Long COVID” does exist, and it can occur in COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons.
Two: The COVID-19 “vaccines” elevate the CD16+ cell levels in the white blood cells of “vaccinated” persons.
Three: These elevated CD16+ cell levels indicate elevated levels of inflammation in the body.
Four: These elevated CD 16+ cell levels in COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons can exist for up to 245 days [so far] as presented in the cited study.
Five: CD16 cells can shed from the human body.
Here is an image of a figure from the cited paper, showing the elevated CD16+ cell levels in the COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons who complained of “Long COVID” symptoms:

By the way, Medrxiv is owned by Cold Spring Harbor, an “non-partisan” research company based in New York State. Cold Spring Harbor began a “partnership” in 2009 with Suzhou Industrial Park in the CCP, to create “Cold Spring Harbor Asia.” Suzhou Industrial Park is a joint venture by the CCP and Singapore.
