“Alas, it’s become a go-to place for retrieving, as it were, previously published information … that became inconvenient post-vaccine and then virtually Memory-Holed.”
— Me on June 4, 2021, speaking of the Internet Archive
Remember when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly changed its definitions of “vaccine” and “vaccination” to conform with outcomes from the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines under Emergency Use Authorization? Remember when it kept changing its definition of “fully vaccinated”?
Remember when Gov. Roy Cooper and state health bureaucrat Mandy Cohen based enormous and illegal exercises of power against people based on — and sometimes then going beyond — the changeable pronouncements from the CDC?
Read the whole thing. Two changes I’d like to highlight here are (a) changes to the CDC’s early discussion about “temporary discomfort” from the injection and, even more importantly, (b) changes to the CDC’s foundational promise that the mRNA and spike proteins it produced would be very short-lived.
An October 2021 revision, the first major update to the page following Pres. Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate, sought to assuage the compelled:
Quietly, that sentence was later changed in a June 16, 2022 update to:
As my article explained:
Readers were to adjust their expectation of natural/normal. Not “temporary discomfort” but “side effects,” and not a definitive “the vaccine is working” but a vaguer “the body is building protection.”
Sharp-eyed readers will spy other changes in that paragraph as well.
From the very beginning (November 2020), the CDC had told people that (a) the spike protein that the mRNA causes your cells to produce is harmless and (b) “The cell breaks down and gets rid of the mRNA soon after it is finished using the instructions.” The initial impression people got was that both the spike protein and the mRNA were short-lived and therefore harmless.
By October 2021 the CDC had put all this in its sidebar of “Facts About COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines.” See the third grouping of “Facts” entitled “The mRNA and the spike protein don’t last long in the body” (which, incidentally, also extended the spike protein’s expected duration to “a few weeks”):
The most recent update (July 15, 2022), however, quietly removed that third grouping of “Facts” altogether. It’s as if the CDC never spent the past nearly two years promising the spike protein and mRNA would be harmless and short-lived:
My article concludes with a series of questions based on this stealth removal:
The constant churn of revisions leaves us with many questions, when the whole point of producing a page entitled “Understanding mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines” was to prevent such a thing. They are, unfortunately, very big questions.
What does it mean if our cells don’t break down the mRNA and remove it soon? What does it mean if the spike protein they produce stays in the body much, much longer than we were originally told? Do they even know how long? What kind of lasting effects can vaccinated people expect? Are those effects exacerbated by boosting and continued boosting?
How prevalent are the effects? Do they differ for different people, and if so, by how much? Are those effects greater for small children? And are those effects at all related to the disturbing rise in non-COVID excess deaths in the U.K., Australia, and the U.S.?
