Medical XPress reports that vaccine hesitancy is increasing.
Overt censorship by Big Tech of posts relating to efficacy concerns or adverse reactions to vaccines has hardened resistance to “the jab.”
This week, the Epoch Times reports that emails confirm the CDC revised the medical definition of a vaccine to accommodate deficiencies in COVID-19 vaccinations.
Attorney Travis Miller reportedly obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request.
The Reactionary reports that in the emails, the CDC admits that the definition of a vaccine is “problematic” and needs to be changed.
The Reactionary reports “the CDC did not dispute [the] authenticity” of the emails.
This comes as The Hill posts that Americans do not have confidence in the FDA, CDC, or WHO. Their report notes that only 27% of Americans have “high trust” in the CDC and only 26% have “high trust” in the FDA.
Christianity Daily reports that Dr. Fauci’s disagreements with FDA and CDC leadership and his changing views on herd immunity, mask mandates, and booster requirements fuel distrust.
According to the Epoch Times report, since 2015, the CDC defined a vaccine as “a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease” and vaccination was “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.”
The report notes that before August 2021, the CDC included the word “immunity” in its definition of a vaccine.
In August, the CDC revised the definition to: “A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases,” while vaccination is “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.”
Many question the revision and suggest the CDC made the change to accommodate the waning efficacy of the vaccines currently available to the public.
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kent.) sarcastically tweeted his concern: “Check out @CDCgov’s evolving definition of ‘vaccination.’ They have been busy at the Ministry of Truth.”
At issue is the efficacy of the vaccines. The Star Tribune reports that the Mayo Clinic conducted a study of 25,000 patients and found the effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine dropped by more than 30% in a matter of months.
CNBC reported that a study in Israel showed a vaccine efficacy rate of about 39% in preventing infection against the delta variant.
The Epoch Times report suggests that CDC officials were alarmed by these findings and altered the definition of “vaccine” to address concerns related to diminishing efficacy and increased vaccine hesitation.
The report quotes a CDC employee as stating that the definition of a vaccine “was twisted to claim that the existing COVID-19 vaccines were not vaccines because they only prevented severe illness.”
The report includes a statement from Dr. Monica Gandhi, professor of medicine at the University of California–San Francisco, who noted that diminished efficacy rates are to be expected:
“Since T-cells protect us against severe disease, and they do not wane over time, protection from severe disease can be maintained even as nasal antibodies (and protection from mild breakthroughs) wane.”
She added that vaccines “remain remarkably effective in protecting us against severe disease.”
