‘What the mainstream media hasn’t instructed us about vaccines’ occasion in Kelowna on Saturday
Most of us have natural immunity to COVID and should not be getting vaccinated against the virus, according to UBC Vancouver professor Dr. Steven Pelech.
Pelech will be the featured speaker at the ‘What the mainstream media hasn’t told us about vaccines’ event on Saturday, 9:30 to 11:45 am, at the Rotary Center for the Arts in Kelowna.
The event is being organized by the Unity Movement Speaker Series and is part of its ‘Uncensored: Leaders in dialogue’ program.

“I’m told we’re expecting 300 people to be in the audience,” said Pelech, who is in the neurology division of the university’s Department of Medicine.
“My main message will be that natural immunity is better than vaccines.”
Pelech is also the founder, president and chief scientific officer at Vancouver-based Kinexus Bioinformatics, which studies cells and proteins in humans.
“Of the 3,500 people we’ve tested in Kinexus’ two-year trial, 75% were unvaccinated and 25% were vaccinated. Eighty-five to 90% of all of them had natural immunity, which means they had been exposed or infected with the virus whether they knew it or not.”
Such findings leads Pelech to conclude that the vast majority of people don’t need to be vaccinated against COVID,
“Some very high risk groups should get the vaccine — the elderly, the obese and the immune-compromised,” he said.
“The current Omicron strain is mild, but more people are getting infected because it is more contagious. That’s good for natural immunity. At this point it’s a common cold coronavirus. There’s no way to eradicate it now. But we can control it with stove immunity.”
While the pandemic is petering out and hospitalizations and deaths continue to decline dramatically, Pelech said people still have to be vigilant to protect their freedoms.
“What happens if the virus spikes again in the fall and there’s renewed mandates and a call for vaccines?” he asked.
“Despite mandates and restrictions, COVID spreads. BC got hit hard and early (in 2020) so our natural immunity is high. We should have freedom of choice.”
