Vaccinated people who then test positive for COVID; the wave is building

by Jon Rappoport

An alert reader pointed me to a key statement in a document published by OraSure Technologies, a manufacturer of a rapid COVID test. The document is posted on an FDA web page.

It is titled, “IntellSwab COVID-19 Rapid Test—Healthcare Provider Instructions for Use.”

The key quote occurs in a section headlined, Limitations of the Test:

“Potential cross reactivity of the InteliSwab™ COVID-19 Rapid Test with COVID-19 vaccines or therapeutics has not been evaluated.”

In the medical community, the term “cross reactivity” is universally understood. It means: a test designed to detect whether X is present in a person’s body is, in fact, detecting Y, an entirely irrelevant item, BUT is mistakenly calling it X.

For example, a person had three drinks the night before his test, and the test then came up positive for the presence of a germ, when actually the test was reacting to the alcohol in the drinks.

And in this document I just quoted, the manufacturer readily admits it hasn’t looked into the possibility that the COVID test is reacting to the COVID VACCINE and then mistakenly stating the vaccinated person has THE VIRUS in his body.

So the question is: why hasn’t the manufacturer looked into this cross reactivity issue? The document shows tests for all sorts of other possible cross reactivity.

And the next question is: how can the FDA grant emergency use authorization for this rapid test, when cross reactivity with the vaccine hasn’t been explored?

The manufacturer clearly understands that cross reactivity with the vaccine is a possibility; otherwise they wouldn’t have mentioned it.

Consider this scenario: a person takes the COVID vaccine. He can now go back to work at his office. But his boss wants all employees to keep getting tested. Three weeks later, the vaccinated person takes the test—and because the test DOES cross react with the vaccine, he’s told he’s positive. He has to go home. If he has a cough or a sniffle, he might end up at the doctor, who might direct him to the hospital. At that point, all bets are off. Who knows what highly dangerous and life-threatening treatments (e.g., a breathing ventilator) the hospital might impose—especially since the hospital is receiving federal money for both the diagnosis and treatment of every COVID patient.

In this article, I’m not trying to explain why the test could cross react with the vaccine. All sorts of educated speculations are possible. I’m simply pointing out the existence of rapid COVID tests that have never been examined, thoroughly, for cross-reactivity with the vaccine.

And this is an entirely separate issue from the huge number of deaths and severe injuries directly caused by the vaccine.

Except…it isn’t a separate issue, because, if very large numbers of vaccinated people are then testing positive for COVID, and the positive tests are occurring because of cross-reactivity, this is contributing to the lunatic medical assertion that people must take TOXIC boosters, to ward off the possibility of “catching COVID” after just one or two vaccine injections.

Bottom line: It’s inexcusable and criminal for a public health agency to approve a test that hasn’t been vetted for cross reactivity with a vaccine, when the vaccine has been taken by millions of people.

I’ll give you one educated speculation about cross reactivity. The COVID test is looking for a piece of RNA ASSUMED to be part of “the virus.” The vaccine contains some part of that RNA-piece. Therefore, when the test is run—depending on the sensitivity of the test—many previously vaccinated people are going to be “positive” for “the virus.”

It’s all fun and games—if you consider destruction of lives fun and games.

People who have taken the vaccine, and then are told to get tested, could say, “I want you to guarantee that the test has been thoroughly vetted for cross reactivity with the vaccine. Prove it.”

I’m not saying this argument would fly, legally speaking, because appearing in courts before judges is a roll of the dice; but the employer who ordered the test might back off.

This, however, is definitely NOT a recommendation that anyone should take the vaccine in the first place.

    A circle of profit: test-> vaccine; vaccine-> test. In between, masks, isolation, lockdowns. Who are there people mandating nations? It takes several lions to bring down a bull… but one lion can prey many sheep…

  2. stephen langley says:

    These new “tests” are as absurd as the surgical masks, vis-a-vis their own labeling; the mask boxes clearly stated (at least in the beginning) that they do not stop transmissibility.

    However, empirical admissions, i.e. data can’t penetrate the hypnosis that many, if not most, folks are under. Yeah, we’re all beating dead horses, but as tedious and wearing as it is, we gotta keep it up pointing out these basic facts… otherwise, the inane circular logic and its spinoff narratives will continue to multiply… damn we need a break!

  3. Maggie Percy says:

    Well, since literally speaking, the ‘vaccine’ is in fact a virus (by their definition), this makes sense, doesn’t it? They are injecting people with a virus; they are having it dictate to the body what to do, like a natural virus does. The vaccine is a virus. So of course it might end up giving a positive test, depending on what they are testing.

    • Marilyn Shepherd says:

      It seems to me the vaccine serves one purpose, to create a spike protein S which is supposed to mean SARS2. then the fake tests find the S spike protein.

  4. ReluctantWarrior says:


    It would appear that comedian Bob Saget died days after taking the booster shot. Naturally the corporate media is ignoring this possible connection to his death.

    Anecdotally, I have heard from 5 people I know who got very sick after the booster shot.

    • Donella says:

      MSM feast like starving wolves on celebrity deaths from “the virus” so Saget’s demise is already old news to them and soon to be forgotten. He admitted he got the booster only a few days before he died. Oops.

      And those poor bastard fact-checkers on social media are in a real quandary trying to find a way to say he was just joking about getting the killer shot.

    • Marilyn Shepherd says:

      Betty White had a massive stroke just after the booster

      • Rosline Loutsios says:

        Marilyn Shepherd – Betty White appeared to me to be in top health. Then it was announced she died in her sleep. I never believed it. I knew she had a booster although one rumour was that she did not have a booster. Of course, for such a huge and likable celebrity, they just cannot utter the truth. So sad. If only she had refused, she could have celebrated her 100th birthday on the 17th of January.

        • AJ says:

          Realize that you still have to use common sense, and more, even when you are 99 yrs old. So, how many comorbidities did Betty White have???

          It will continue until we stop it.

  5. Ernesto Che says:

    Looking at it another way, if many/most/all of those post-jab tests are falsely positive, then it means that those people are not infected with Covid, therefore the gene therapies (I refuse to call them vaccines because they are not) work!!

    I realize this may be the wrong logic here, but then my question is: in what way it the logic wrong?

    • hbgnostic says:

      It’s a leap in logic, actually.

      Notwithstanding that all the tests are fraudulent out of the gate and literally tell us nothing EVER substantive regarding infection — see here for background:

      [T]o assume that because people are not infected means the gene therapies are working just because people don’t test positive is not a valid assumption. It just means more of the same, a lot of invalid test results possibly providing cover for some ulterior motive.

      Maybe it was just money, greed, and profit, hard to say. Maybe it was some other trajectory in the planned charade.

  6. Ernesto Che says:

    Jon, you may well have seen this, though I have not seen a comment from you about it:

    Rochelle Walensky has stated “The overwhelming number of deaths, over 75%, occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities.”

    That is a confirmation that Covid poses little risk to “normal”, non-diseased people. Leaving aside whether the virus exists or not (yes, I know your position on that!), there is no pandemic. In other words, there is just a planned scamdemic.

    • Marilyn Shepherd says:

      It’s been listed by the CDC as 95% with 4 pre existing conditions for over a year.

    • Courageous Lion says:

      Hmmmmm….people dying of up to FOUR comorbidities. And they call it “Covid”. I’d say there is something fishy going on here. I’ve said from day one with the masks and all…IF THE GERM THEORY WERE TRUE, NO ONE WOULD BE ALIVE TO BELIEVE IT! “Murder By Injection”, which I read in the 1980’s set me straight.

  7. The Watchman says:

    Jon, Maybe it’s because they don’t care if the test has cross reactivity with the vaccine. They can say that the vaccine is working, once again, by blaming a positive test on the testing procedure’s cross reactivity. Hence it’s not due to vaccine failure, but rather because of the cross reactivity with the testing method.

    This might work temporarily to push the boosters, which is what all the testing is about anyway. At least until more of the vaccinated start ending up in the hospitals with vaccine induced problems. It’s a win win situation for pharma and the medical cartels no matter how you look at it.

      This reminds me of the old Abbot and Costello skit “Who’s on first?”. In this case “Who’s got covid?”.

      “Bud, do you have covid?”
      “I don’t know, I didn’t get tested”
      “You didn’t? You should!”
      “But I got vaxxed so I know I would test positive”.
      “How do you know”
      “Because I got vaxed”.
      “You only get vaxxed if you test positive’
      “I don’t need to test”.
      “But that’s how you know to get vaxxed”
      “I tested positive after I got vaxxed”
      “So you have covid”
      “No, no– I got vaxed”

  8. Low Voltage says:

    Pfizers CEO, “we know that the two doses of the vaccine offer very limited protection, if any.”

  9. Cam says:

    You are “right on” again, Jon.

    I believe from what I have observed with friends that the test swabs may be CAUSING illness “Covid” from whatever toxin is on the swab. Not just testing positive but creating illness.

    For example, someone has a small cold with sniffles. They then go test to find out if they have Covid with a swab test and then a few days later they are very very ill with a respiratory virus causing pneumonia and symptoms that cause them to be near death.

    I think some of the swabs are causing severe illness in unvaccinated or vaccinated

    • BoogeymanSlayer says:

      I think we have to consider this as a possibility. I would like to see studies that can show us just exactly what is on/in those swabs. I, for one, do not trust anything sanctioned by Big pHARMa or the complicit governments to be doing anything to benefit the masses. I see plenty happening to line the pockets of those creating this depop program, including those they blackmailed and/or paid to shill for them.

    • joeG says:

      Nocebo effect?

  10. Siouxma says:

    If these Jabs are “safe & effective,” why do employers want their jabbed non-symptomatic employees to get swabbed routinely?

    The CDC ordered the Labs to run the PCR tests at 28 cycles for the Jabbed “Breakthrough” cases, but 40 cycles for new cases. The EUA for the PCR test expired on Dec31, so what tests are being used now?

    Just keep in mind, folks, there is no Covid virus in any of these inoculates, the FDA Fact Sheets clearly state. So, you can’t get [non-existent] Covid from these Jabs directly. As supreme immuno-suppressants, however, you can get really sick other ways, not to mention the clotting issues.

  11. Thinktwice says:

    Dr. Mike Yeadon says 90% of the COVID vaccine “side effects”/deaths came from less than 10% of the batches (lots), which means it is a “live” experiment!

  15. Edward John Bernhart DDS says:

    In listening to the oral arguments from Friday before the Supreme as to whether to allow OSHA the power to mandate vaccination, it was mind-numbing that the issue that, unlike wearing a hardhat or having an eye wash machine on a job site these vaccines are irreversible which seems pertinent since no animal studies were performed and the control group has been eliminated.

    • Jim S Smith says:


      The “animal studies” WERE, in fact, conducted with various “corona virus” and mRNA “vaccines”, but ALL of the animal subjects died shortly thereafter. – The real fact is: ALL of the “animal studies” were thrown out (and, conveniently “forgotten” about)!

    The word “therapeutics” may refer to the monoclonal antibodies, or the transfusion therapy that some people got or any drugs since it doesn’t repeat the word with covid 19 in front of it.

    As for the possibilty of the test turning up positive and people being put on the train of events to federal hospital funding and high-paid professional testing and care, it starts to rhyme with a vague memory.

    Didn’t the story of Nazi’s disposal of the elderly, mentally and physically handicapped, dissidents and other undesirables have similar cover stories? The public was propagandized with belief and trust in authorities, with scary health stories, scientific testing, health restrictions, status change for the outcasts and then disappearance of events into the mists of memory.

    Goebbel’s secretary said she had no idea what was happening.

    It was so compartmentalized with everyone just doing a job, getting paid better than other people, that even the secretary who typed the propaganda didn’t know what happened until it was over and then insist it didn’t happen. She lived 106 years and she insisted right wing extremism is the problem. That everyone in her country was at fault. Who are those right wing extremists? Are they the problem now?

    Somebody has the money to design and fund final solutions for problems that were designed to get those solutions. The people’s memory of the people’s reaction to the problems is so short; their ear for a rhyme is so dull, eyes so dim, that 106 years isn’t long enough to hear the poem.

    • Jim S Smith says:

      WHY QUOTE TRASH like CNN? ? ?

      And NO, the “NAZI’s” did NOT dispose of their elderly and infirm! ! !


      National Socialist Germany, of those times, revered their elderly citizens for the accumulated wisdom!

      WHY not look, instead, towards Bolshevist Soviet Union? ? ? The Bolshevik system, under Lenin and then Stalin, ruthlessly murdered over 60 million people, both young and old, starting with their “HOLODOMORS” (TWO of them).

      I really wish folks would get out of this “blame the NAZI’s for everything bad” trope! – It is all based on repetitive LIES and a total misrepresentation of “history”!

      Didn’t anyone ever teach you that: “History is always told through the eyes of the victors, and rarely heard from of the vanquished“? ? ?

      Those past wars (and virtually ALL wars since) have been the building blocks towards the system of global governance we see growing to day!

        Precisely. “History is not black and white.” Everyone should review and avail themselves of the information in The Scriptorium.

        “We at The Scriptorium believe that this is classically evident in publishing, education and any other endeavor related to the presentation of history to the “consumer public”, and that a distinct pattern of stressing one side while distorting and hushing-up the other has become standard practice with regard to the fairly recent history of Germany and of the Second World War in particular. After all, when was the last time you or your children heard about crimes committed by Nazi Germany, and when was the last time you saw a book about the Holocaust on your local bookstore shelf? We’re willing to bet that it wasn’t very long ago. In contrast, when was the last time your public education system taught about the expulsion, butchery and mass murder committed against the German women, children and civilians in the Sudetenland or the Banat, and when was the last time you saw a movie or TV program about life and death in the American post-War(!) concentration camps along the Rhine and elsewhere? What about the Valentine’s Day cremation of the undefended hospital city Dresden by the British and Americans? What’s that you say – you’ve never even heard of these things? Well, that’s our point exactly.”

  21. AJ says:

    The science is too complicated for many. The masses are unfortunately easily fooled. No matter how many published reports exposing the magnitude of this fraud it will exist. The depth of the deceit and lies will continue. The continued distractions will expand. The new miracle pills and shots will offer and prounounce salvation. The delusional will continue to “Follow the Science”.

    By then 75% of the population will have been vaccinated 10 times. That will seal their future to “ZERO”. Of those vaccinated, 50% will be disabled and/or dead. When that occurs, forced vaccinations will be implemented to control the slackers.


    All this open useful discussion here, gives support that we who resist are not alone. Beyond that, all it does is give warning to those focusing on how completely to destroy us sooner.

    Been several notices of famous people dying soon after being vaccinated. But that has not changed the minds of the hypnotized. Until tens of thousands of the rich and famous become disabled and die from being vaccinated nothing will change […]. We who are about to die have no choice but to do it with honor and determination.

    Thanks to all.
