Media is Slowly Coming Around to Idea that Covid Vaccines Aren’t as Effective as Advertised

Media is Slowly Coming Around to Idea that Covid Vaccines Aren’t as Effective as Advertised

“A pandemic of — and by — the unvaccinated is not correct.”

Legal Insurrection readers have been keeping up with the news about the swarm of covid infections hitting the vaccinated and boosted among Washington DC insiders. The infected include Kamala Harris, Merrick Garland, and Nancy Pelosi.

Now the media is slowly revealing what many of us have known for some time. The vaccines aren’t as effective at preventing covid as initially advertised.

To begin with, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal revealed that state health data indicate the vaccinated are contracting covid at about the same rates as the vaccinated. Interestingly, the disparity in health outcomes has also become less substantial.

The [Wisconsin department of Health Services] DHS found that in March, those not fully vaccinated were being diagnosed with COVID-19 at a similar rate as those who were fully vaccinated. To be exact, people not fully vaccinated were diagnosed with COVID-19 at a rate 1.1 times higher than people who were fully vaccinated. The state attributes this finding to the omicron variant.

Differences in hospitalization and death rates were also significantly smaller than previous months. According to March data, people not fully vaccinated were hospitalized at a rate 2.4 times higher than fully vaccinated people, and they died at a 3.4 times higher rate.

When the DHS last reported illness after vaccination data it was in January with December data, it found residents not fully vaccinated were 10 times more likely to be hospitalized and 14 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than the fully vaccinated.

The Washington Post also reported that the disparity in fatality rates between vaccinated and unvaccinated elderly patients was dwindling. However, the article also continued to toe the line on vaccinations.

The pandemic’s toll is no longer falling almost exclusively on those who chose not to or could not get shots, with vaccine protection waning over time and the elderly and immunocompromised — who are at greatest risk of succumbing to covid-19, even if vaccinated — having a harder time dodging increasingly contagious strains.

The vaccinated made up 42 percent of fatalities in January and February during the highly contagious omicron variant’s surge, compared with 23 percent of the dead in September, the peak of the delta wave, according to nationwide data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed by The Post. The data is based on the date of infection and limited to a sampling of cases in which vaccination status was known.

…“It’s still absolutely more dangerous to be unvaccinated than vaccinated,” said Andrew Noymer, a public health professor at the University of California at Irvine who studies covid-19 mortality. “A pandemic of — and by — the unvaccinated is not correct. People still need to take care in terms of prevention and action if they became symptomatic.”

In a nutshell: The virus, in its many permutations, is evading the vaccine and hitting the vulnerable hard. You know, like the seasonal flu. So, like the flu, allow people to decide if vaccination is something they would like to pursue rather than mandating it.

The Gridiron dinner was the last Washington DC superspreader event.  Chances are high the White House Correspondents Dinner will be the next one.

The islands not really sinking. Keep the narrative going as long as you can profit from it.

Onward and upward to the next manufactured crisis.

Probably they all had saline shots anyway

Another “conspiracy theory” that we’ve understood for two years, finally being grudgingly admitted.

Somebody call Jankowicz and have a SWAT team dispatched to Fauci’s home IMMEDIATELY!

It looks like a pandemic of Democrats.

The conflict that is preventing the media from acknowledging the truth about COVID vaccines is that to any member of the mainstream American media, the most crazy, Chiroptera feces insane thing said by any Leftist gets an automatic assumption of credibility whenever presented to the world. If something like that is said by any Leftist politician or government official, it assumes religious overtones and it is forbidden to question it unless forced to by circumstances. It is akin to the Twelve Articles of Faith, and the further from the truth it is, the more the mainstream media will defend it and attack those who point out the truth.

Two terms I have learned about.. perfect vaccine and therapeutic. When I was a child I received whatever was normal for that time.. and they were perfect vaccines… What is being offered now is a therapeutic. I realize I am speaking to the choir, more or less. I fervently hope that anyone who decided to get the shot is spared from what may be serious complications.

    and a “therapeutic” whose benefit wears off over time, as would be expected of such.

    randian in reply to amwick. | May 2, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    A rather poor therapeutic, with nasty side effects that would be intolerable in past ages. Indeed, one wonders if the side effects are the reason covid vaccines are being pushed so hard. It certainly can’t be their alleged medicinal benefit.

JackinSilverSpring | May 2, 2022 at 6:30 pm

The Maoist State Media covering up the truth until they can’t.
The “vaccine” was an experiment that has failed. Of course the virus was going to adapt simply by having viruses that could evade the vaccine survive. Fortunately, it appears that the surviving viruses are less virulent than the original version. Also, we are slowly getting herd immunity, and that seems a whole lot more effective than the “vaccines.”
And, oh BTW, masks are totally ineffective.

I don’t think Leslie has described the situation well here. There should be some recognition that current deaths and hospitalizations have fallen sharply, and vaccines can be credited for that.. When those numbers are as low as they are now, it’s uninformative to say without specifics that omicron has “hit the vulnerable hard”. In a sense, the expression is even circular and content-free, since people who are hit hard are, by definition, vulnerable.
Sorry to be critical to a writer who is usually spot-on!

    In addition, there is a vast buffer of people who already had Corona, and are far more resistant to catching it again than people who were vaccinated and multi-boostered. All of that cuts the expansion of the virus cases from 2x down to 1.5x and now down below 1x where case numbers will fade out as infected people don’t spread it since most everybody around them is already resistant.

    There *has* to be a push for treatment to bring positive cases from possibly deadly to annoying at worst, then a push to bring those treatments down to pennies a day instead of thousands.

    Should they be credited? Deaths and hospitalization numbers are obvious lies, it’s clear from low-vaccination countries that you don’t need the vaccines at all to have little impact from covid, and declines in deaths preceded widespread administration of covid vaccines.

    txvet2 in reply to Norris. | May 2, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    “”current deaths and hospitalizations have fallen sharply, and vaccines can be credited for that..””

    You could say that, but you’d be lying.

    n.n in reply to Norris. | May 3, 2022 at 1:10 am

    Infection, survival, and natural immunity can be credited for reduced population hospitalizations and abortions. The “vaccines” are non-sterilizing (e.g. silent spread, progressive condition), and, while they may have offered some benefit to individuals, and forward-looking risk to everyone, they marginally contributed to community immunity.

There is no need for the media to slowly come around. That’s why Biden set up the Ministry of Disinformation. Just submit your questions to them and they will tell you what to publish. You can do it voluntarily now, but later on it will be mandatory.

If your name’s Elon Musk and you just bought Twitter you can see the handwriting on the wall.

If a person has one or more high risk factors say obesity and heart disease the members of that higher risk group remain at elevated risk from Rona compared to those without the higher risk factors. The mRNA vax(s) appear to be neutral at best v unvaccinated in terms of effectiveness v new strains in a recent Danish study; which makes sense as the mRNA were a genetic modifier v the original strain. The vax made with attenuated virus hold up better v all strains and for longer periods and with less reported side effects.

It would be very helpful to use continuing data from the original study groups from clinical trials to settle some of this. Unfortunately the trials were compromised by the drug companies once approval was given and no comparison longitudinal data exists for the control group. Given that the participants in the clinical trials were roughly 18- 55 and no data for response was conducted on older people, who suffered the most severe Rona outcomes, it’s no wonder the drug companies want to delay release of their at best limited data sets 75 years.

    Actually jnj is the worst one and its disabled virus I believe.

      CommoChief in reply to healthguyfsu. | May 2, 2022 at 8:40 pm

      Danish study included J/J, AZ and one other I can’t recall. All three had better outcomes for age 85+ than any mRNA over time. Which makes sense in that the efficacy of mRNA provides most benefit v original Rona and it’s benefit wanes while non mRNA are more broadly protective and hold up better over time v new varients.

      In any case the original study data was intentionally compromised by not continuing a control group and now the pharmaceutical companies want a 75 year period before making it public. Both make me less than willing to simply ‘trust them’ as public health community demands. No blind tests and no on going longitudinal studies with updates published quarterly = no blind trust IMO.

      randian in reply to healthguyfsu. | May 2, 2022 at 11:30 pm

      The JnJ is not a disabled virus vaccine. No such vaccine has been approved in the US. It’s a viral vector vaccine.

        healthguyfsu in reply to randian. | May 3, 2022 at 11:22 am

        Viral vector vaccines have been around for a while. That’s not what makes Pfizer and Moderna’s vaccines unique. It’s the use of mRNA technology (liposomal mRNA that enters cells) in the vector as opposed to standard modified viral vector that creates the antigen against the targeted virus.

        J&J is still considered the riskiest vaccine by the CDC. The cases of adverse events are more frequent with this vaccine than the others, although all are low. AZ’s UK vaccine is also viral vector but DNA-based like the J&J one.

tate health data indicate the vaccinated are contracting covid at about the same rates as the vaccinated…
Forgot the “un”.
Not to worry, the WEF wants old people to off themselves anyway to make room for the richest of the rich to really pig out.
And scroll one down for the propaganda video.

    henrybowman in reply to 4fun. | May 3, 2022 at 4:25 am

    The video is so unbelievable that I have to think it’s a false flag hoax.

Silent spread. Present and progressive (“forward-looking”) conditions. Non-sterilizing “vaccines”, without an established safety profile, and with excess adverse events, suitable for limited distribution by informed choice to high risk cohorts, but not Mengele mandates for the general population.

Ponder all the “disinformation” (the Dumb-o-crat totalitarian-narcissists’ new favorite word) that the Dumb-o-crats and their media lapdogs/lackeys peddled regarding the vaccines. Concealing and ignoring data suggesting deleterious cardiovascular effects in young men; vastly overstating the vaccines’ efficacy (“It will prevent you from getting and spreading Wuhan Virus!”); vilifying American citizens and physicians who expressed legitimate concerns about the vaccines’ side effects, including immune system weakening after repeated dosages.

The “vaccines,” so-called, provide a temporary immune system response boost, at what seems like the totally unacceptable cost to healthy people of compromised and weakened long-term immune system function, making them inappropriate for all but the elderly and high-risk patients.

    I got the initial two jabs. I didn’t get the boosters. Enough. No more shots. I’m done with this Wuhan virus hysteria and fear-mongering.

Lie #1: “The pandemic’s toll is no longer falling almost exclusively on those who chose not to or could not get shots”

Lie #2: “It’s still absolutely more dangerous to be unvaccinated than vaccinated,”

It never was falling on the ‘unvaxxed’ as every developed country in the world that reported numbers had the death rate, hospitalization rates and infected rates falling on the “vaxxed” at 90-95%.

The US as a test group would be no different, its just reported differently and the gov’t officials can’t be trusted because COVID isn’t now or ever was about health….it was about politics and still is.

I’m sorry, but I didn’t read the whole article.
I couldn’t.
All I have to say to the media is:
the fact that you, at long last, have resigned yourself to admitting you were lying to me all along doesn’t mean I’ll start believing you again.


Great. They’re now seeing the light when it comes to the vaccines being effective. Now let them do safe.
