Entire vaccinated sports teams have been benched because they all tested positive for Sars-CoV2. For the past three months, the majority of those who died of Covid-19 in Vermont were fully vaccinated. 96% of Omicron cases in Germany are among fully vaccinated people. But the vaccine faithful don’t seem to feel ripped off in the slightest.
In 2020, the public was fed a diet of non-stop scary Covid news while it remained largely unaware that it is a treatable illness. Many people became “immune” to the fact that Covid-19 has a better than 99% survival rate if you are under 70.
Properly terrified, many people eagerly awaited a vaccine for this virus so they could get back to “normal.” Presumably, normal would include not being afraid of Covid anymore, or the nation taking its first steps backwards toward a segregated society.
For a very long time, the public’s understanding of vaccination was “the injection of a killed or weakened infectious organism in order to prevent the disease.” This was how the polio vaccine was made and it obviously worked great. Nobody gets polio anymore.
The definition was altered in 2015 to mean “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.” (Immunity means the body resists infection.)
With this in mind, the public rightfully expected, and the government and federal agencies PROMISED, that the vaccine would prevent a person from getting infected with Sars-CoV2.
But the promise fell through. And in September 2021, the CDC’s changed its definition of a vaccine to “a preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s response against diseases.”
So, if you get vaccinated, you are not immune to the virus. You can still get infected. Instead, you have injected a preparation that stimulates your body’s response to a disease. According to this study, increasing one’s intake of Vitamin D cuts the risk of Sars-CoV2 infection. This study says Zinc stops the replication of many viruses in the body and it looks like it does the same for Sars-CoV2. Ivermectin does a great job of stimulating the body’s response against Covid. There is actually a laundry list of “preparations” that meets this new definition of “vaccine.”
Now we can add boosters to that list because for the CDC, there’s nothing like more of what doesn’t work to fix a problem. Hooked on the promise of a better tomorrow, the vaccine faithful of NYC lined up for their boosters with no sense of outrage that the “normal” they were promised never materialized. It may never materialize. These New Yorkers are still afraid of Covid, embrace segregation and they can’t hold a job or have a normal life without being vaccinated.
That doesn’t meet my definition of “normal.”
