Words have meanings. There was a time when the word "immunity" meant that if someone had a disease and recovered from the disease, he or she was then considered immune via natural immunity. However, since the advent of Covid-19, the powers that be decided to arbitrarily change the long-standing definition of immunity to exclude natural immunity. Thus only people who have been twice-vaccinated for Covid-19 are considered to have immunity. If you got sick from Covid-19 – sorry you don't get a free pass because you are not considered immune to the disease despite having had it, and you still have to get vaccinated. What other diseases do we do that for? Why this discrepancy? Inquiring minds want to know. In this short Twitter feed, Senator Rand Paul shreds HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra's credibility at a committee hearing.
The Israel study that Senator Paul cited can be found here. It concludes:
This study demonstrated that natural immunity confers longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 two-dose vaccine-induced immunity. Individuals who were both previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 and given a single dose of the vaccine gained additional protection against the Delta variant.
It is not so surprising then that the definition of "vaccinated" has undergone a change as well.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have devised a set of rules pertaining to the classification of infectious disease and death. These rules simultaneously inflate the number of covid cases in the unvaccinated and allow hospitals to classify dead vaccinated people as “unvaccinated” deaths.
According to the CDC’s rules, no one is counted as “fully vaccinated” until a full 14 days have passed from the second injection of Pfizer or Moderna’s mRNA vaccine, or 14 days have passed after the first dose of the Johnson & Johnson shot.
This rule conveniently hides 80 percent of the deaths that occur after vaccination and slyly misattributes these deaths as “unvaccinated deaths.”
In consideration of the above, perhaps the CDC ought to change the acronym of its own name to "Covid Death Cult."
