The CDC Is Refusing To Publish Some COVID Vax Data Because It Might Be ‘Misinterpreted’

The left continues to insist that we should “trust the Science” but what happens when the data isn’t being published?

Of course, these “Trust the Science” Libs are the same people who wear masks outside and alone in their car for some unknown reason that has nothing to do with science.

But seriously, how do you trust people who are refusing to give you the data?

Especially when you learn that they’re hiding the data because they’re afraid that it might prove that they’re wrong. 

The Biden-Harris administration wants everyone to get vaccinated and boosted regardless of whether or not they already have antibodies from a previous infection.

They have said that vaccination is the “only way out of the pandemic.” They must know that this is absolute B.S. since the vaccines don’t work very well against the now-dominant Omicron Variant and vaccinated people are contracting and spreading the virus.

These shots are still in their trial phase and we have no long-term data. The Comirnaty Vaccine (Pfizer’s jab) has not been tested for any carcinogenic effects, or if it affects male sterility.

But hey, why disclose that to the public, right?

Instead, just tell them that they need 3 or maybe 4 jabs in a 12-month period to protect them from a virus that has given the 95-year old Queen of England “mild cold-like symptoms” that are not so onerous that she is still able to perform “light duties.”

It seems that there are several things that the CDC is not disclosing like… the efficacy of the booster dose for 18-49-year-olds and hospital data relating to children with COVID.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has withheld vast swaths of the information it holds about the impact of COVID-19, leading to anger from the scientific community and speculation the agency is not releasing the data because it weakens the case for booster shots in certain demographics.

Two weeks ago, the CDC published the first significant data on the effectiveness of boosters in adults younger than 65.

But the agency, led by Dr Rochelle Walensky, did not share the information on those aged 18-49, who are considered to be the least likely to benefit from a booster.

It has also failed to provide information they held on child hospitalizations, scientists complained.

A spokesperson for the CDC, Kristen Nordlund, told the New York Times that the information hasn’t been released because it’s “not yet ready for primetime.” She added that the agency’s priority when gathering any data is to “ensure that it’s accurate and actionable.”

Norlund added that the CDC was concerned that the data might be “misinterpreted” to show that the vaccines were ineffective. She also said that the agency is reluctant to share the data because it only represents 10 percent of the population — 33 million people.

This, by the way, is the same sample size that the CDC uses to track influenza.

Scientists are begging the CDC to just release the data because it builds public trust.

‘Tell the truth, present the data,’ said Dr Paul Offit, a vaccine expert and adviser to the Food and Drug Administration.

‘I have to believe that there is a way to explain these things so people can understand it.’

He noted that, because the CDC had not published the information, American scientists were forced to rely on Israeli data.

‘There’s no reason that they should be better at collecting and putting forth data than we were,’ he said.

‘The CDC is the principal epidemiological agency in this country, and so you would like to think the data came from them.’

Another scientist was shocked that the CDC had the data at all because scientists have been asking for it for quite some time.

A third said that she was able to obtain the information she was looking for in a report by the New York Times despite requesting it from the CDC for more than a year.

‘We have been begging for that sort of granularity of data for two years,’ said Jessica Malaty Rivera, an epidemiologist and part of the team that ran the Covid Tracking Project, which brought together data on the pandemic for a website they ran until March 2021.

She denied that there was a risk of the data being misinterpreted, adding that it instead ‘builds public trust, and it paints a much clearer picture of what’s actually going on.’

She added: ‘It gets really exhausting when you see the private sector working faster than the premier public health agency of the world.’

Dr Yvonne Maldonado, chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics’s Committee on Infectious Diseases, said that she had requested from the CDC data on the proportion of children hospitalized for COVID who have other medical conditions.

She eventually found the information she needed thanks to a New York Times report.

‘They’ve known this for over a year and a half, right, and they haven’t told us,’ she said.

‘I mean, you can’t find out anything from them.’

The New York Times succinctly states:

For more than a year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has collected data on hospitalizations for Covid-19 in the United States and broken it down by age, race and vaccination status. But it has not made most of the information public

[T]he C.D.C. has been routinely collecting information since the Covid vaccines were first rolled out last year, according to a federal official familiar with the effort. The agency has been reluctant to make those figures public, the official said, because they might be misinterpreted as the vaccines being ineffective.

All we have been asking for is transparency from Day 1, and the public health officials have refused to be honest with us in order to push for what they believe is best.

That’s antithetical to the concept of “informed consent” which is supposed to be central to modern medicine.

It’s time for everyone — government, public health, and Big Pharma to start being open and honest instead of the top-down diktats that must be obeyed or else.

British Medical Journal Calls For Full And Immediate Transparency From Big Pharma And Public Health Officials

Is it too much to ask to be treated like adults?

Have you had it with the Prevaricating Authoritarian Smurf giving his pronouncements about the pandemic from on high? You’re not alone. Maybe it’s time to tell the diminutive bureaucrat who keeps moving the goalposts exactly what you think of him.
