Post COVID Vaccine Syndrome and Other Vaccine Syndromes Caused by Organophosphate Poisoning
DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR ANY DISEASE OR INJURY.
Post COVID Vaccine Syndrome is a multi-symptom condition. Actual manifestations of Post Vaccine Syndrome tend to vary from person-to-person. However, some common conditions reported following vaccination with a COVID-19 vaccine include chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritic symptoms, myocarditis, myalgias, neurological diseases like Guillain-Barre syndrome, thyroid inflammation, transverse myelitis, thrombotic thrombocytopenia, complex regional pain syndrome, and more. Other vaccines, like the HPV and Hepatitis B vaccines, also can produce similar Post Vaccine Syndrome symptoms.

While we’ve already written an entire book dedicated to recovery from Post-Vaccine Syndromes (which you can download at this link), we also noticed a connection between organophosphates and the development of the health problems associated with vaccinations. Many, many (even most) vaccines contain a phosphate-based ingredient. These synthetic phosphates are absorbed at a higher rate than phosphates found naturally in food, so administration of these phosphates can cause a spike in phosphorus levels in the body.
However, though this increase in phosphate levels is notable and relevant, the truly harmful phosphate additives in vaccines are those that contain aluminum. Below, I discuss aluminum phosphate compounds seen in vaccines in-depth, and include a brief discussion of the general effects of excess phosphates when administered in the form of vaccines or through other means (such as through exposure to organophosphates or consumption of phosphates in foods).
Hidden Phosphates in the Vaccine Ingredients
In reality, the phosphates aren’t that hidden in the vaccine ingredients. It’s just that most ingredient lists for vaccines are in fine print (making them hard to read or care about) and difficult to find on the internet. Also, the vast majority of people don’t think to look at the adjuvant, “inactive” ingredients in vaccines they’ve received previously or will receive in the future. After all, the ingredients present in a vaccine should be straightforward and not require an explanation. As an example, I think of how applesauce, which should contain nothing more than apples, water, and maybe citric or ascorbic acid to preserve it at a store, often contains a host of other ingredients that are unnecessary and/or harmful (think high fructose corn syrup, “natural” flavors, artificial colorings, etc.). Vaccines also often contain harmful and sometimes unnecessary ingredients beyond what the average consumer expects them to contain.
Not all vaccines contain phosphates, though the vast majority of them do. Below is a short (and certainly incomplete) list of some of the phosphate ingredients present in vaccines:

Aluminum Phosphate and Amorphous Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate
There are a remarkable number of vaccines that contain aluminum in one of these two forms. Though not as toxic as mercury, which is (unbelievably) still found in some vaccines in the form of thimerosal (an organomercury compound), aluminum is still a metal that can accumulate in the body and lead to serious health problems. It’s interesting to note that humans do need some aluminum, though. In fact, this mineral is required in order to activate succinic dehydrogenase, an enzyme that’s a part of the citric acid cycle and the electron transport change that helps facilitate the oxidation of succinate to fumarate (an important compound for liver and gallbladder health specifically) and ubiquinone to ubiquinol (which is ubiquinone’s usable, activated form).
So, tiny, tiny amounts of aluminum (like that which may be found naturally in organic food) are indeed necessary for human health and survival. But large quantities of aluminum beyond a few micrograms daily are toxic. Avoiding aluminum is always a good plan of action, whether that aluminum is in the form of a vaccine or from a regularly-used frying pan, since the body needs very little, and it’s easy to “overdose” on aluminum in daily life if you aren’t aware.
Aluminum phosphate is a mineral salt. In this format, the phosphate becomes entirely bound up in the aluminum, rendering the phosphate more or less useless and ineffectual in the body. This phosphate compound does occur in nature in the form of berlinite, a crystalline mineral (which, even though it’s naturally occurring, obviously, this mineral isn’t anywhere near safe for human consumption). However, the form of aluminum phosphate used in vaccines is synthetically created, and when administered in the form of an intramuscular injection, can cause aluminum toxicity more readily than some other non-phosphate based aluminum compounds. I’ll discuss how exactly this works later in this article.
Amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate is another problematic aluminum-based vaccine ingredient present in, again, a fairly long list of vaccines. One study even questioned whether or not this ingredient had even been cleared for use in vaccines (or if another similar sounding compound was approved instead, and then the amorphous compound was sneakily used in place of the approved compound), particularly within the context of the Gardasil vaccine. The Gardasil vaccine information packet compared the incidence of adverse events in girls and women between ages 9-26 who were given either the Gardasil vaccine (the test group), an injection with amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate (a “control” group; it’s suspicious to me that they included a “control” group with only this ingredient in the first place), and a saline injection (another more legitimate control group). Reliably, the incidence of events such as pain, swelling, and erythema at the injection site were higher in the groups that received either the Gardasil vaccine or the amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate solution. Throughout the rest of the study, though, AAHS solution and saline solution were grouped together, so it’s impossible to tell the statistics on administration of AAHS beyond this point.
Aluminum Toxicity from Vaccines
Aluminum toxicity can cause a wide range of health problems, including (but not limited to):
- Desquamative interstitial pneumonia
- Inflammatory bowel diseases (including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis)
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Macrophagic myofasciitis
- Osteomalacia and other abnormalities in the bones
- Reproductive problems (including oligospermia and other types of infertility)
- Hepatorenal disease
- Breast cancer and breast cysts
- Pancreatic necrosis
- Pulmonary lesions
- Neurological disorders
One study observed that administration of aluminum phosphate given to rabbits via an intramuscular injection (similar to a vaccine) resulted in levels of aluminum in the blood that were 3 times higher than they were in rabbits who were given aluminum hydroxide. The same study noted that aluminum was found in higher concentrations in certain organs in the body following administration of the aluminum phosphate; specifically, higher aluminum concentrations were present (in descending order) in the kidneys, spleen, liver, heart, lymph nodes, and brain.
When aluminum is ingested on its own, it has a natural affinity for adenosine triphosphate (ATP), another phosphate that acts as the primary energy source for the entire body. When this happens, this can impede the function of liver cells specifically, as well as inhibiting the continuation of the Krebs cycle and glycolysis. It also leads to oxidation of lipids and proteins. Additionally, aluminum binds with other phosphates in the body, which suggests that its interference in bodily processes ranges even wider than many people are aware (since phosphates are, after all, a part of a huge range of bodily processes).
Interactions Between Aluminum and Calcium
Since our main topic of discussion here is phosphates, the interaction between aluminum (and aluminum compounds) and calcium is of particular importance because of the close relationship between phosphorus and calcium in the body. When blood calcium levels are high, blood phosphorus levels drop, and vice versa. In addition to this, calcium interacts with other important nutrients like vitamin K2 and vitamin D to mineralize bones and teeth and keep calcifications from occurring in soft tissues and blood vessels.
One animal study done on rats observed that intravenous administration of aluminum ultimately caused symptoms of hypercalcemia (which closely mimic those of hypophosphatemia/phosphate deficiency). In these rats who were given aluminum at a dose of 0.4mg/100g of body weight, plasma calcium levels were elevated. While in this example, aluminum was administered at somewhat higher doses (and for a longer period of time) than what’s likely present in vaccines, it’s still worth noting that aluminum can induce hypercalcemia when present in larger amounts. Children or infants, for example, who are given multiple aluminum-containing vaccines in close proximity to each other, may be at a higher risk of hypercalcemia and aluminum toxicity than adults.
The phosphate in aluminum-phosphate compounds that are present in vaccines has been rendered ineffectual by its bond with the aluminum. And, since other non-phosphate based aluminum compounds like to bind with phosphate, some of the other good phosphates in the body may also be bound up with the aluminum after the vaccine is administered. The phosphate in this aluminum-bound form doesn’t have any balancing effect on the potential for the development of hypercalcemia. In fact, because the presence of phosphate technically potentiates (makes stronger) the action of aluminum, it could actually increase the potential for hypercalcemia in certain cases.
Though the actual amount of aluminum in most vaccines is relatively small (for example, the Prevnar 13 vaccine contains 125mcg of aluminum), it’s important to consider that, first of all, aluminum accumulates in the body over time. Second, children (and some adults who regularly receive vaccines) are at a higher risk of developing aluminum toxicity because they may receive multiple doses of extra-bioavailable aluminum via vaccinations administered all at once. Third… the daily acceptable intake of aluminum is only 5mcg. Infants in particular routinely receive A LOT more aluminum in vaccines than this acceptable amount. And, aluminum can persist in the body for up to 5-10 years or more, so the effects of these aluminum-containing vaccinations are long lasting.
Since children receive many routine vaccinations between birth and age 18, in order to attend school or other functions, this may explain why certain children “grow out” of their condition as they get older and stop receiving so many vaccinations. Once their body has had a chance to clear out the aluminum from the vaccines (without the reintroduction of more aluminum from more vaccines), they may experience fewer symptoms of whichever condition their experiencing, such as ADHD or autism.
Interactions Between Aluminum and Iron
Another important nutrient relationship is that between aluminum and iron, because aluminum, when it’s present in excess quantities, disrupts iron homeostasis in the body. As a clear indication of this, one of the symptoms of aluminum toxicity is anemia, a condition that develops when a person doesn’t have adequate iron levels in order to be able to produce enough red blood cells (note that other nutrients can also be involved in the development of anemia, such as vitamins B6, B9, and B12, but in this case, iron is the main player that we’re focusing on).
However, though aluminum toxicity can cause anemia, it can also cause an unusual buildup of iron in the form of ferritin (the type of iron that gets stored in tissues) in certain organs, such as the kidneys, liver, heart, spleen, and in the brain, in the hippocampus and the frontal, temporal, and parietal cortices. These iron deposits are thought to occur actually as a result of aluminum, which also likes to bind with iron (aluminum is a bit promiscuous). Some areas of thought say that after aluminum and iron have bound together, they may then be deposited in these organs. Alternatively, aluminum may stimulate the body to preferentially deposit ferritin in these organs, with or without the aluminum bond.
One Iranian study observed that, in factory workers who were routinely exposed to aluminum, the presence of aluminum caused a decrease in hemoglobin and red blood cell levels. Other animal studies support this finding, and also indicate that aluminum may also decrease hematocrit levels. Both decreased hemoglobin and hematocrit levels, over time, can lead to the development of iron deficiency anemia. While there are many factors that play a role in anemia, this research indicates that aluminum (such as that found in combination with phosphates in vaccines, which make the mineral more potent) may increase the risk of developing anemia.
Organophosphates that Contain Aluminum
While there are probably more organophosphate substances in use that contain aluminum, the two I was able to find are known as aluminum phosphide (AIP) and fosetyl-aluminum. Both of these compounds are in use in the United States as well as in other countries around the world.
Aluminum phosphide is one of the most widely used aluminum-containing organophosphate insecticides, and is sold under the brand names Quickphos, Celphos, Fostox, Fumitoxin, Phostek, Phostoxin, Talunex, Fieldphos, Alphos, and Weevil-Cide; this insecticide is prolific in India specifically. When aluminum phosphide comes into contact with water (and all forms of moisture containing water), it can turn into deadly aluminum phosphine, an explosive chemical that can cause tachycardia, hypoglycemia, muscle tremors, seizures, elevated liver enzymes, ataxia, fever, and rapid breathing, among other symptoms.
Fosetyl-aluminum, which usually goes only by the name Fosetyl-Al, is a popular fungicide that is used specifically on lettuce and spinach crops, as well as on turf grasses and in conifer nurseries. It is approved for use in nearly the entire United States, except for Alaska.
The Effects of Other Phosphate Adjuvants in Vaccines
Phosphate Adjuvants and Iron
Phosphates decrease the absorption of iron. Whether it be a naturally occurring phosphate in food that also contains iron, or a vaccine that contains a phosphate compound, phosphates have been found to inhibit iron absorption and usability. Phosphates (natural or otherwise) have also been known to generally inhibit the usability of magnesium and zinc, two other absolutely essential nutrients.
Phosphate Adjuvants and Magnesium Deficiency / Calcium Toxicity
Magnesium deficiency in particular has been known to increase susceptibility to the buildup of aluminum in the brain. Then, when a person is exposed to aluminum in a vaccine or in another format, such as through an aluminum-based organophosphate, the aluminum present is more likely to be absorbed into the brain and other nerve cells. Besides this alone being a bad situation (aluminum in the brain is not a good thing), this accumulation of aluminum and accompanying magnesium deficiency ultimately increase calcium levels beyond where they should be. The higher aluminum levels also negatively affect the parathyroid gland specifically, meaning that the balance between phosphorus and calcium (and other minerals) in the blood and in other parts of the body may be severely impaired.
If the person is also deficient in vitamin K2, they may at this point experience calcifications of the organs due to this excess calcium, or other symptoms of hypercalcemia such as the following:
- Twitches and tics
- Muscle weakness
- Muscle cramps
- Bone pain
- Abnormal heart rhythm
- Excessive thirst and/or urination
- Kidney stones
- Referred pain on one side of the back or upper abdomen due to kidney stones
- Decreased appetite
- Abdominal pain
- Memory loss
Note that magnesium deficiency is already considered an epidemic in the United States and Canada, with approximately half of the population consuming the amount that they should be via dietary sources. Women are particularly at risk, with around 10 out of 11 women having lower-than-normal magnesium levels, and 84% of post-menopausal women with osteoporosis testing positive for a magnesium deficiency.
Organophosphates and Susceptibility to Post Vaccine Syndromes
Organophosphate exposure may increase the risk of developing Post Vaccine Syndrome in some individuals. The interactions that phosphates have with other nutrients may play a role in the development of Post Vaccine Syndrome, since certain existing deficiencies that are aggravated by excess phosphate levels, like magnesium deficiency, zinc deficiency, and iron deficiency, are likely to be major contributing factors in the development of several conditions that can develop following receipt of a vaccine. For example, magnesium deficiency can stress the heart and muscles, and may play a role in the development of certain muscular or cardiovascular disorders that occur post-vaccination, such as myocarditis or transverse myelitis; zinc deficiency, on the other hand, is implicated in decreased immunity and autoimmunity.
Besides being linked with nutrient deficiencies, however, organophosphates may also have other effects linked to increased risk of developing a Post Vaccine Syndrome. One study done on Gulf War veterans (who are significantly more likely than the average population to have been exposed to organophosphates over the long term, which is why I’ve noted this study) observed that soldiers who had received vaccinations after or during deployment were more likely to exhibit signs of multisymptom illness and chronic fatigue syndrome than soldiers who had received vaccinations before deployment. Soldiers who received vaccines after or during deployment in the Middle East also had an increased risk of developing these conditions if they received a higher number of vaccines. This study also observed an increased risk of the development of asthma in cases where soldiers were vaccinated after being deployed.
Some other studies have demonstrated a diminished immune response in individuals who are exposed to organophosphates. In particular, researchers have observed that organophosphate exposure decreases the immune system’s ability to fight off a viral infection such as COVID-19, as well as likely interfering with the body’s ability to fight off other pathogenic infections. In one study, previous organophosphate exposure was specifically linked to a heightened inflammatory response and a higher risk of adverse respiratory events in patients who get COVID-19.
So, organophosphates have been linked to dysfunction of the immune system, but they also are connected to dysfunctions in other organs and systems in the body, including the endocrine system, the kidneys, the liver, the reproductive organs, and the nervous system. These wide-ranging toxic effects decrease the body’s ability to actually utilize a vaccination in the appropriate way. Vaccines are supposed to be simple: they should contain an inactivated pathogen or a piece of a pathogen that can be injected in order to encourage the immune system to learn about and respond that pathogen in a safe, controlled way without having to experience the actual, live infection first (and, also note that generally, a vaccine like this isn’t technically supposed to, nor does it even need to, contain a whole list of other adjuvants). Besides, this is how our bodies naturally build up defenses against disease: through simple exposure to pathogens that exist in the world around us. But, based on current research, even if you were to give this relatively pure, simple type of vaccine to a person who had been exposed to organophosphates, the risk of an adverse reaction or the development of Post Vaccine Syndromes would be higher since the immune system and some major organs of detoxification (the kidneys and liver) are already being heavily taxed.
