UPDATE: The CDC also watered down the definition of “Vaccine” days after the Israel study appeared. The article has been updated to reflect this change.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) quietly changed their definitions of “Vaccine” and “Vaccination” on September 1st, exchanging the word “immunity” for “protection,” now that it appears that breakthrough cases can no longer be explained away as an anomaly.
The definition changes occurred days after a massive study was released demonstrating that those who had been vaccinated were “13 times more likely to be infected with the Delta variant (what has been called a “breakthrough” infection) than those with natural immunity,” as summarized at the American Conservative.
Attkisson featured a Tweet from Representative Thomas Massie, who noted that that the CDC definition of “vaccination” was updated twice since 2015.
The original definition pre-2015 for vaccination was: “Injection of a killed or weakened infectious organism in order to prevent the disease.” That definition evolved in 2015 to become “The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.” As of September 1, 2021, the definition was watered down yet again to read “The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.”
Further, the definition for “Vaccine” was changed from:
Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.
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.
As usual, there is zero discussion or transparency surrounding the changes. It is not a a stretch to speculate that the changes come as data from Israel shows that “natural immunity left after recovering from Covid-19 is stronger over the long run than immunity generated by the Pfizer vaccine.”
Vilifying Natural Immunity
It appears that the left must now concede that natural immunity is effective against the coronavirus.
The Washington Post published a desperate article on September 7, 2021 about the findings, despairing that the study will serve to “justify…reluctance” from those who do not get vaccinated.
Faye Flam, the highly partisan author of the Washington Post piece writes in part:
People who had two Pfizer shots were about 27 times more likely to get symptomatic Covid-19 and eight times more likely to be hospitalized than were people who’d been infected. In previous columns, I’d quoted scientists citing that earlier data, saying that vaccine-induced immunity might be better than protection from a past infection. I was wrong, and stand corrected.
The Israel numbers are very compelling. The Biden team and their allies can no longer say that the vaccines are better than natural immunity, or even comes close. Hence, the change in the definitions of “vaccine” and ‘vaccination.”
