On August 5, 2021: CDC Director Rochelle Walensky publicly admits that Covid vaccines can no longer prevent transmission of COVID-19 (against the then predominant Delta variant).
“Our vaccines are working exceptionally well,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky tells @wolfblitzer. “They continue to work well for Delta, with regard to severe illness and death – they prevent it. But what they can’t do anymore is prevent transmission.” pic.twitter.com/s83YyBQqeh— The Situation Room (@CNNSitRoom) August 5, 2021
On August 10, 2021: Oxford Vaccine Group Director Andrew Pollard, states that herd immunity from COVID-19 vaccines “is not a possibility” because the Delta variant can spread among vaccinated individuals. He warns that herd immunity from vaccination is a “mythical” concept that should not inform Covid vaccination programs in the UK or across the globe.
CDC’s Changing Definition of Vaccination
On September 1, 2021: The CDC changes the definition of vaccination to:
“The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.”
Prior to this date, the CDC had previously defined vaccination as:
“The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.”
Per the CDC’s own definition of immunity:
“If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.”
With this change in definition, it would appear the CDC concedes that Covid vaccines, while protecting against hospitalization and death from COVID-19, do not produce immunity and prevent infection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
On September 30, 2021: A Harvard researcher publishes a peer-reviewed paper that found “no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases”. Worse yet, the study found “a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.”
Since the publication of this paper, and despite increasing Covid vaccination rates, cases of COVID-19 skyrocket higher than ever before with the now predominant Omicron variant.
On January 2, 2022: The country of Israel begins offering a 4th dose of Covid vaccine to healthcare workers and those over 60 years of age. Nevertheless, by the end of the month, COVID-19 cases in Israel reach an all-time record high.
February of 2022: The United States, with 76% of their population having received one or more doses of a Covid vaccine, records the highest number of COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic.
A Pandemic of the Unvaccinated?
Recent data out of the UK, Scotland, and Canada show that fully vaccinated people have higher rates of COVID-19 compared to unvaccinated people.
In the UK, triple-vaccinated adults have approximately double the rate of COVID-19 as compared to unvaccinated adults (as shown below).
COVID-19 Case Rates in the UK (1/16/22 – 2/6/22)
Similarly, data out of Scotland shows that vaccinated individuals, regardless of how many vaccine doses received, have higher rates of COVID-19 compared to unvaccinated individuals (as shown below).

Data out of Ontario, Canada has also shown higher rates of COVID-19 in fully vaccinated individuals compared to unvaccinated individuals during the recent Omicron wave from December 24, 2021 – January 26, 2022.

Given the above data, showing fully vaccinated people having higher rates of COVID-19 during the recent Omicron wave compared to unvaccinated people, what is the scientific justification for mandating Covid vaccines and instituting vaccine passports?
Esse passaporte supostamente sanitário é nazo-fascista!! Não restringe transmissão, nem contágio desse maldito vírus! Obra de globalistas pra redução populacional!
Do vaccines prevent infection with and spread of viruses? Short answer: They cannot prevent infection, but they can prevent spread (if they are a good fit).
Here is why: A vaccine teaches your immune system to act within a few hours after you get infected, rather than after a five day incubation period. Hence, you can get infected, but the virus doesn’t have time to be replicated exponentially beyond a single 7-hour replications cycle. With fewer viruses (if any) produced, you won’t get ill and you can’t spread (infect others.)
Yes, in general vaccines can prevent the spread of vaccine-preventable infectious diseases. The point of my article is that this is clearly NOT the case with COVID-19 vaccines, as fully-vaccinated individuals had higher rates of COVID-19 (compared to those who were unvaccinated) with the recent Omicron variant.
With a larger proportion of the vulnerable vaccinated (currently: 90% of 65+ vs 73 of 18-64) it is not surprising when the rate of COVID-19 is higher among the vaccinated (more at high risk) than among the unvaccinated (fewer at high risk). With such non-randomized data, one should be extremely careful to draw conclusions about cause-effect relationships.
