CDC Plans to ‘Pivot the Language’ to Make ‘Fully Vaccinated’ Mean Two Doses and Booster

CDC Plans to ‘Pivot the Language’ to Make ‘Fully Vaccinated’ Mean Two Doses and Booster

It would be wise for the CDC not to alter the terms of the pandemic response further.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky is now saying that the agency plans to “pivot” its language regarding what it means to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Responding to a question about why the CDC is not changing the definition of the phrase to include a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, the health leader told reporters that it is working to “pivot the language to make sure that everybody is as up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines as they personally could be, should be, based on when they got their last vaccine.”

“So, importantly, right now, we’re pivoting our language. We really want to make sure people are up to date. That means if you recently got your second dose, you’re not eligible for a booster, you’re up to date. If you are eligible for a booster and you haven’t gotten it, you’re not up to date and you need to get your booster in order to be up to date,” she added.

It would be wise for the CDC not to alter the terms of the pandemic response further. An American journalist who began 2020 fully embracing the government recommendations, only to declare herself, “Done with covid,” now is speaking for a vast number of her fellow citizens.

Walensky’s follow-up comments to these statements are that the agency policies will align with the approach taken with influenza.

Walensky compared the COVID-19 vaccine to the flu shot, where patients aren’t considered ‘up to date’ until they receive a yearly shot. Those who do not receive a flu shot are not considered ‘up to date.’

‘In public health, for all vaccines, we’ve talked about being up to date for your vaccines. Every year, you need a flu shot; you’re not up to date with your flu shot until you’ve gotten your flu shot for that year,’ the director said.

However, the flu shot is voluntary, while COVID vaccinations have been mandated in much of the country in order to participate in most daily activities.

The CDC approach pairs with a recent Pfizer statement, that its vision for the Covid-19 vaccine is for an annual booster shot.

Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) Chief Executive Albert Bourla said on Saturday that an annual COVID-19 vaccine would be preferable to more frequent booster shots in fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

Pfizer/BioNtech’s COVID-19 vaccine has shown to be effective against severe disease and death caused by the heavily-mutated Omicron variant but less effective in preventing transmission.

With cases soaring, some countries have expanded COVID-19 vaccine booster programmes or shortened the gap between shots as governments scramble to shore up protection. read more

In an interview with Israel’s N12 News, Bourla was asked whether he sees booster shots being administered every four to five months on a regular basis.

“This will not be a good scenario. What I’m hoping (is) that we will have a vaccine that you will have to do once a year,” Bourla said.

It is clear that, along with European leaders, American ones are beginning to plan a pandemic exit strategy while clinging to as much power as they can retain on their way out.

Kids’ summer camps are going to demand booster shots for vaccinated campers, then.

CDC should just pivot on their position that vaccines are the end-all.

How about STOP holding back therapeutics like monoclonals, twice now I have my appointment canceled because Texas doesn’t have any

Yes I have Covid amd have finished my ivermectin which I got last year “just in case”, but I even couldn’t get Paxlovid

I’m an old bitty, I know what they are doing

Killing us

The unvax will not be the issue going forward. The folks who were vax true believers from the jump and those who felt they didn’t have a choice other than to vax will be the new resistance. These groups complied under the implied premise that doing so put it behind and they could get back to normal. Now that legacy media is stating the same things we have for two years they are finally paying attention to the circus behind the curtain. They ain’t happy with what they see.

    I liked this comment CommoChief, as it reflects my circumstances. I was never a “vax true believer” in the case of COVID, but I do have some comorbidites and had to return to the office. I waited until the last minute but ended up taking a course of the mRNA stuff. That was of my own will and I am okay with it.

    I also defended co-workers who did not do so. The Lord gives us all free will, and no one has the right to force anyone else to inject this crap unless they want to. When I stood up for my co-workers when the mandates started coming the typical result was, “What do you care, you are vaxxed?”

    To which I pointed out to some supervisors that if you allow this to happen to our friends that did not want a COVID shot, it won’t be long before they start in on those of us who took two but will have no more of it.

    That was three weeks ago and here we are. The Pfizer subscription plan is the new normal. I could never have imagined just how quickly some American people would collapse to fear and tyranny, and be happen to give it all away.

      The antibody treatment EUA was just withdrawn as being ineffective v omicron. That means we have only the Pfizer and Merck pills as authorized therapeutics. The vax x2 + booster EUA remains despite widespread knowledge and official admission that they are not an effective vax. At least not in the way they were promised nor in the traditional sense; effective at preventing transmission.

      Overnight change while eyes were diverted to Ukraine, falling poll numbers, record inflation, record border crossings. The only thing I admire about the d/prog and the uni party is their determination and commitment to ruthlessly enact their agenda.

“pivoting our language” = continue to MSU (make “stuff” up) until something sticks to the wall. Like “pivoting their language” is something new for them.

From the headline I thought they were planning violence to the English language. But it appears the only language they have designs on is their own, which I suppose belongs to them and they can do whatever they like to it, though “pivoting” it sounds painful.

Having a private language can be useful, because you can say whatever you like in it and write off any misunderstandings that result as an error in translation.

They use force to make you do what the deciders have decided you must do.
It’s time to turn their language gymnastics on them. 3 and 4 boosted people should now be referred to as vaxx-addicts. Pureblood for life!

There’s the legal side to this mandate issue and there’s the medical side. President of Pfizer said the double vaccine offered little to no help in stopping you from getting the virus. Hence the need for a booster. In essence, the first two jabs didn’t work, so a third jab, comprised of exactly the same stuff as the first two, only with more spike proteins, is going to do the trick? And CDC thinks this is so go0d an idea they decide to move the goalposts.

Also, alarming data is coming out that questions both the efficacy of the vaccine and the truth telling of the data keepers. Italy dropped its Covid dead number from 130,000 to 4,000; England & Wales dropped it last week from 170,000 to 17,000. This is astounding. Of course, MSM is nowhere to be found. Could it be that Covid is not the Black Death we were all led to believe it was (& still is)?

Did you know that elderly who were in very bad health were not given the vaccine (this from Canada)? When they died they were counted as unvaccinated. And how about the idea that if you died within two weeks of the first Pfizer jab, your death was listed among the unvaccinated? The CDC/Pfizer tools did everything they could to crank up the efficacy of the jab and lessen any untoward side effects. And we should trust them on the booster business? Something doesn’t work, but more of something will fix the problem? Is everybody crazy?

And now that more people than ever before have the virus, what further can be said about these almost useless vaccines? Not only do they not help you not get sick, they may even make it more likely! What’s going on now is a pandemic of the vaccinated! Don’t tell MSM.

Evidence is starting to come in that the vaccine has some undesirable effects on your basic immune system. I’ve even read that said vaccines might to permanent harm to your immune system. So, it’s no for me on the booster, even if I lose my job because of that no.

Here is something I’d like someone to help me on. They keep saying that while the vaccine won’t stop you from getting and spreading the virus–I’m a case in point on this–it will save your life. In fact, vaccines have saved the lives of countless th0usands.

How do they know this? Is there a test, a metric? How do they reduce the most happy variable to the wondrous vaccine?

    They do weaken your immune system. Just like Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome isn’t always caused by HIV. The fourth dose will give you AIDS.

      That’s in the small print using invisible ink.

        In this case it’s right there in the “Results” section in the accompanying table.

        https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.12.20.21267966v3.full-text

        Note that vaccine effectiveness (Ve) for both the Pfizer and Moderna jabs fall to zero by day 90, and after that into the negative range. A negative Ve means these jabs are helping the virus, not you. In other words, they damage your immune system. You are now worse off for having this s*** ever injected into your body, and the damage may be permanent. Nobody knows; nobody ever tested to see what jab after jab after jab does to your immune system.

        I know. I’m not ever putting this s*** into my body.

      Wade Hampton in reply to buckeyeminuteman. | January 24, 2022 at 5:30 pm

      I have been saying this for over a year. The data coming out of Scotland is downright scary. Pretty soon they are going to be warning people NOT to get the shot.

It’s distressing to me that it’s not the “antivax” propaganda online that’s steering me away from a covid vaccination, but the duplicitous and confusing actions of our own CDC that’s making me want to avoid the shot at all costs.

These are not Windows updates, and if they are, then we’re not being immunized. Nobody ever got kicked out of a restaurant for not being “up to date” on their flu shots. The messaging is all over the place.

    Arminius in reply to SeymourButz. | January 24, 2022 at 3:47 pm

    Yes, the constant lying from these CDC malefactors is bad enough. But then there’s the fact that despite being frequent liars they aren’t even good liars.

    The MSM love affair with Fauci reminds me of their crush on Avenatti. I look forward to the whole thing blowing up in their faces in exactly the same way. Yes, that means Fauci going to prison for his crimes against the public.

    Milhouse in reply to SeymourButz. | January 24, 2022 at 4:35 pm

    Yes, exactly. I am not anti-vaxx. I am very pro-vaxx, and I think anti-vaxxers are kooks. But I have questions about this particular vaccine. I would take it if I thought I needed it. I’m glad my mother has taken it, since at her age the Wuhan virus is a bigger threat than the vaccine could possibly be. But the more the government lies about it the more suspicious of it I am.

      Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | January 25, 2022 at 9:56 am

      I’ve been saying the same thing for what now seems to be years. I’m pro-vaxx. But what we’re being told is a vaxx, just isn’t. This is the CDC:s modified, most sympathetic definition of what constitutes a vaccine:

      https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/imz-basics.htm

      Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but some can be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

      Here’s what Moderna (and by extension Pfizer) say their jabs do.

      https://www.modernatx.com/mrna-technology/mrna-platform-enabling-drug-discovery-development

      “…We need to get the mRNA into the targeted tissue and cells while evading the immune system. If the immune system is triggered, the resultant response may limit protein production and, thus, limit the therapeutic benefit of mRNA medicine….”

      I’m not even going to the CDC’s vaccination glossary of terms, which puts a hole amidship under the water line to the idea these mRNA jabs constitute vaccines. Do I need to?

      When an actual vaccine is developed,I’ll take it. Until then I’m not stepping on the mRNA treadmill and submitting my immune system to a subscription service.

As predicted by NostraDeSantis a month or so ago, in response to which foresight he was predictably blasted by the water-carrying, mainstream media lemmings/prostitutes.

This is really stupid….just make a separate category in data collection. It’s actually MORE informative that way.

Semantic games. Scientific progress. Throw another baby on the barbie.

If our Congress had a spine, they’d pass a law declaring the mRNA injections to not be a “vaccine” as used in any public health law or regulation. They aren’t made, and don’t act, like any vaccine in medical history and shouldn’t be accorded the same status until we understand how they work much better than we do now.

The county health czar issued an order last September limiting indoor dining at restaurants, bars and use of gyms, etc., to the vaccinated only. I’ve written several letters to her and the board of health with articles about the superiority of natural immunity, and not one of them has ever replied. More recently, I wrote the editor of the newspaper who printed my letter, followed by his own reply pointing to CDC data showing the vaccines are better than natural immunity – that was just 2 weeks ago. Now the CDC has released another study of cases in CA and NY showing that natural immunity was better than the vaccines during the Delta wave – which was the reason for the restaurant mandate in the first place!

I’ve written the editor privately to point out that his reply with the official ‘narrative’ sidestepped the 3 questions I asked, and pointed out how in so many letters to the editor before, he had sent the reader’s questions off to the person in charge for answers. Would he do the same for my questions to get an answer from the health commish?

One question had to do with the restaturant and bar order, the language of which echoes the CDC definition of vaccinated (2 doses Phizer or Moderna, 1 dose J&J). The health board boasts of 67% fully vaccinated county-wide. So what happens when the CDC pivots the language to “up to date” and the county vaccinatation rate is reset to 0%? It will gut the customer base of bars and restaurants. And continue to ignore the naturally immune. County-wide – about 10% of us have natural immunity now, based on known cases, minus deaths divided by county population.

The commish is also playing numbers games with the data. The case ratio of vaxxed/unvaxxed is cumulative – going back to Feb 1 last year. By front loading that data with every single covid case from day zero, they inflate the vaxed/unvaxxed ratio … theorhetically on Feb 1 last year, the ratio would have been 0% vaxxed / 100% unvaxxed – since no one who caught Covid was vaxxed then. The Commish refuses to answer my other 2 questions – what is the case ratio since August 6th, 2021 when the White House claimed 50% of the US had been FULLY vaccinated? And what is the case ratio for the last 2 weeks? The CUME ratio was 18/82 (vaxxed/unvaxxed) 6 weeks ago – and in the first two weeks of Omicron it jumped to 23/77. So clearly the vax is NOT working so well against Omicron. But by including the CUME data to day ZERO, it’s less obvious.

I’m not a violent man, but I’m to the point where I believe these lying bastards need to be dragged out by the hair and thrown in prison. Communists, communist sympathizers, aiding and abetting a communist … doesn’t matter. As far as I’m concerned, every American has reponsibility by virtue of citizenship (standing and vested interest) to protect and defend the constitution.

Not a peep about natural immunity. Just “shaddup and get your shots.”

“Health” on the subscription plan – a neverending cycle of shots and pharmaceuticals that ostensibly treat the symptoms but never the disease.

If I never go to the hospital or see a doctor again, it’ll be too soon. The medical “profession” is becoming as trustworthy as the the old-time traveling snake oil salesman shtick, and nowhere near as entertaining.

Everybody at our house is as fully vaccinated as we’re going to get. No doses, no boosters and we had a mask burning party. The party was in May of 2020.

I hate to quote anyone bearing the NYT stain, but Bari Weiss recently described the present COVID world perfectly: “At this point, it’s a pandemic of bureaucracy. It’s not real anymore.”

Doesn’t “pandemic of bureaucracy” capture it well?

She’s an incredible dumbass. Either that, or arrogant on an obamian level.

Corrupt POS, too, as usual for any – ANY – democrat:

https://redstate.com/scotthounsell/2021/08/06/exclusive-cdc-director-walenskys-husband-received-5-million-in-hhs-grants-and-thats-just-the-start-of-it-n421809

Side note: watch out for rino/GOPe hack Kevin McCarthy’s push to make himself another Boehner. DON’T SUPPORT HIM AS SPEAKER!

That photo of the clueless, corrupt Wallensky reminds me of the target at a pie-in-the-face concession at an old county fair.

“It would be wise for the CDC not to alter the terms of the pandemic response further.”

Or the more American people will slip through your fingers.

Sit on this language and pivot, Rachel.

The flu shot is optional and yearly. China Flu shots are looking to be quarterly and de facto mandatory – some nations are already pushing 2nd boosters and dropped the timetable to a 3 month gap between the 1st and 2nd booster.

Pivot the language? That’s the phrase of a propagandist not a clinician. It makes it obvious that we are in a “pressure relief” period. Nobody is going to care what she says about “up to date” and endless boosters unless there’s a mandate making them care.

“This will not be a good scenario. What I’m hoping (is) that we will have a vaccine that you will have to do once a year,” Bourla said.

Yes, we know what you want, Mr. Bourla. NFW.

“Pivot the language” is newspeak for “move the goalposts”.
