(UPDATE) CDC vaccine misinformation

For more than three years, we’ve been following the scandal where Congressman Tom Massie caught the CDC intentionally putting out false information about Covid vaccines and natural immunity. 

The CDC and its top vaccine advisers wrongly claimed that the original vaccine studies showed that there was a benefit to people getting vaccinated even if they’d already had Covid. Massie recorded his conversations as CDC officials admitted that wasn’t true, but balked at correcting it.

The following is a transcript of a report from “Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson.” Watch the video by clicking the link at the end of the page.

Rep. Tom Massie (R-Kentucky): And they said, “Thank you for finding the mistake. We’re going to fix this.” And I thought, “Well, okay, problem solved. This is how government works.”

But it didn’t quite turn out that way.

Two days later, the same Dr. Cohn, who’d promised a fix, joined other CDC doctors in repeating the false information, this time in an online session for medical professionals. They wrongly claimed studies show people who’ve had coronavirus do benefit from the vaccine.

Dr. Amanda Cohn (CDC video): “So, Sara Oliver, what — should people who’ve had Covid-19 be vaccinated, and should they be vaccinated now?”

Dr. Sara Oliver (CDC video): “…Data from both clinical trials suggest that people with prior infection are still likely to benefit from vaccination.”

Rep. Massie: So I called them up on Tuesday, as soon as I could, to ask them why it hadn’t been fixed. And it was like I was starting all over with the same people. And, instead of fixing it, they proposed repeating it and just phrasing their mistake differently.

Sharyl (on-camera): Eventually, the CDC agreed to correct the misinformation, but Massie said the revised language was still wrong and left the same misimpression.

Last October, Massie asked the CDC to answer to the continuing issues. More than three months after a deadline, the CDC responded, but avoided the question and simply stated that, quote, “CDC issued numerous public health guidance documents specific to the differing needs of Americans. CDC continues to monitor COVID-19 to ensure that CDC guidance and recommendations reflect the most up-to-date science.” End quote.

Massie responded by telling Full Measure, “The CDC letter is completely unresponsive to my particular questions. What are they trying to hide? We will find out.”

  1. Democrats needed FUD in 2020, just like they need it now.
    FUD = Fear, Uncertainty, Death.

    “Covid” more than delivered for them. The world for reasons yet unknown was ready and willing to be materially afflicted with FUD.

    Th FUD disease comes in manny forms. But it has one agenda – partisan mind control.
    Globally, the media was shilling FUD if Trump was elected in 2020. Just as they are attempting to do again now.

  2. Said this many times already. Might as well say it again here, for the cheap seats. The CDC is now, and has been for decades, a Vaccine Promotion PR Organization. That’s part of their mandate, be it unstated or obvious. Vaccines account for a large part of their funding, both direct funding from Pharma and, IIRC, payments from IP. Dr. Cowen, as the leader of that organization, has a direct responsibility to her bosses, her organization, and her employees, to maintain that position, regardless of what Congressman Massie says. Sad? Sure. True? Definitely. There is no way, ABSOLUTELY NONE, that the CDC will back off that mission, or, stated differently, dismount that horse. They will ride the vaccines-or-bust horse like Seabiscuit for the foreseeable future! Or until the organization is disbanded, whichever comes first.
