The CDC Suddenly Changes the Definition of ‘Vaccine’ and ‘Vaccination’

By Nick Arama, Red State

Matt Margolis over at our sister site PJ Media has picked up on a very interesting change on the CDC website when it comes to the definitions for “vaccine” and “vaccination.”

The timing of the change is very interesting.

He notes that it would appear that the CDC is trying to change how we understand the concept of vaccinations.

He highlights the definition of terms on August 26, 2021.

Immunity: Protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.

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.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.

Immunization: A process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. This term is often used interchangeably with vaccination or inoculation.

That had been their definition since at least May 16, 2018, according to PJ Media.

But then, come September 1, suddenly there was a big change.

Immunity: Protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.

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.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.

Immunization: A process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. This term is often used interchangeably with vaccination or inoculation.

Why are they trying to back off of what the definitions used to be? Now they are talking about a vaccine stimulating the immune response but not to “produce immunity.” Now they’re saying a vaccination doesn’t produce immunity but will “produce protection.”

Check out @CDCgov’s evolving definition of “vaccination.” They’ve been busy at the Ministry of Truth:

 

They appear to be changing the definition to fit what we’re being told about the COVID-19 vaccines — that they don’t necessarily provide immunity but just “protection” from more serious illness. Meanwhile, it fits with the push for more “booster” shots, to keep up the continued “protection.” So they’ve changed the definition of vaccines so that it no longer means preventing the disease or producing immunity. Whereas before it wouldn’t necessarily meet their definition of a vaccine, now it meets the new definition.

We’ve seen the CDC have wrong (bigger) numbers for COVID deaths in Florida (what a coincidence). We’ve seen them falsely claim that the Delta variant is as contagious as chicken pox. Now we see them redefining words to better fit what they’re pushing with the COVID “vaccine.” Is this one more effort to control the narrative?

If you get the polio vaccine, you will not get polio. If you get the rubella vaccine, you will not get rubella. If you get a flu shot, you may still get the flu. If you get a COVID shot, you can still get COVID. I think we know what a vaccine is…. these COVID shots are not vaccines.

The CDC just shot themselves in the foot, with this one. They want to play WORD GAMES…….and they just LOST! Changing ‘immunity’ to ‘PROTECTION’ is a win for HUMANS! Now, with the ‘PROTECTION’ definition, Vitamin C is now a ‘vaccine’ for Scurvy (as an example). Vitamin C gives one PROTECTION FROM SCURVY. SO, all of the vitamins, clean water and CLEAN FOOD that I consume are now ‘vaccines’ against the ‘big, bad virus’, since those PROTECT ME from getting sick. (I haven’t had the Common Cold in more than 10 years!) 
I, for one, welcome the ‘new definition’ because it now defines the things that I do to PROTECT myself from colds/flu as ‘vaccines’. 

@RealJesse

Let’s go ahead and use your definition and quantify the effectiveness of each of your “vaccines”

Level of ‘PROTECTION’ from COVID:

Pfizer vaccine: 94% (77% Delta variant after 6 months)
Moderna vaccine: 93% (92% Delta variant after 6 months)
J&J vaccine: 68%
Vitamins: ~0%
Clean Water: ~0%
CLEAN FOOD: ~0%

Yeah, they’re all the same. Good put DawnieR.

Yep… One big Psyop to control the narrative for the medical tyranny Trojan horse that Communism rides in on…

Everything goes to keep the narrative/agenda going… Over- and Under reporting of covid cases/deaths and taking away constitutional rights (etc.) to push vaccination of the whole population of which not even 1 percent is at risk for this virus (and vaccination will keep this fake ‘pandemic’ going forever). Should be obvious by now, but it isn’t. AMAZING!
