Whiplash and the Media Regarding New Covid Boosters

Our hamster may be cleared to safely get this vaccine, but there are no definitive results for us and our children

September 5, 2022 - As the latest vaccine aimed at Omicron is about to be unleashed upon us, it would be helpful to all who can read to pay attention from one paragraph to the next when trying to understand the risks and efficacy of this latest shot.

Recently, a major newspaper was disingenuous when it led us to believe that the unvaccinated were significantly more likely to get covid, be hospitalized or die than their vaccinated counterparts. This is true only if they acknowledged the CDC’s definition of being vaccinated “when you have received all doses in the primary series and all boosters recommended for you, when eligible.”

So when just under 70% of Americans have gotten the first two Covid-19 shots, and just under half of those got the first booster, and then just one third of those got the second booster, these numbers indicate that a whopping, ginormous number of Americans are actually considered unvaccinated, according to the CDC.

Although this newspaper actually printed the above statistics, they felt no compunction to admit that most people fall into their “unvaccinated” column even though they may have received as many as three vaccines. This is the kind of misleading Covid data that happens in the media all the time.

Why? Why does the media want to confuse us? Here’s the reason, according to the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behavior (SPI-B) in the U.K. They admit that the government is using fear to control and manipulate the population, generating anxiety by keeping us confused. Giving out contradictory recommendations is done on purpose to keep us psychologically vulnerable to the point that we can no longer think rationally; thus we can be easily manipulated. To do what? To get any and all recommended shots at all times.

If the above still fails to cause concern, maybe the following will give us pause before we roll up our sleeve once more.

Again, this same paper reported that the FDA says they have taken a great deal of care to ensure that these updated boosters meet their rigorous safety, efficacy and manufacturing quality standards, with tests on animals showing a very good immune response. Therefore, they did not require additional tests in people before issuing an Emergency Use Authorization. Neither the paper nor the FDA thought this was problematic.

So, if we ever wanted to participate in a human vaccine trial, now is our chance, because as of now, the FDA admits that the EUA was authorized based on studies in mice. Our hamster may be cleared to safely get this vaccine, but there are no definitive results for us and our children, based on human studies, because there really aren’t any.

We don’t have to be a doctor, scientist or epidemiologist to tease out the information we need to make a well-informed decision about these shots. The news media seems to bend over backwards to confuse us, burying the truth amid the half-truths, sometimes in the same paragraph.

When it comes to protecting ourselves from the unknown, and worrying about untested and inconclusive recommendations that could permanently damage our bodies, we should heed Voltaire’s harsh but appropriate words:

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
