CDC is Hiding Key Information on Vaccine Boosters’ Effectiveness

Biden is hiding critically important information about the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccine boosters. Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is refusing to reveal how tens of millions of young Americans fared with it.

Two weeks ago, the CDC publicized data on the effectiveness of the COVID-19 booster shots for adults under 65 years of age; however, the CDC also concealed vast swaths of data.

CDC Fearful of Public ‘Misinterpretation’

The hiding of the crucial information infuriated the scientific community and naturally fueled speculations the data is being withheld because it compromises the case for booster shots, at least for some demographic.

The federal agency didn’t reveal the information on adults 18 to 49 years of age, who are already believed to be the least likely to benefit from third vaccine doses, The Daily Mail reported.

Another set of data withheld by the CDC concerns the hospitalizations of children with respect to COVID-19 vaccines. According to CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund, the data isn’t “yet ready for prime time,” whatever that is supposed to mean.

People ages 18 to 49-years-old are deemed least likely to receive any benefits from the COVID-19 booster shots, unlike the elderly and those who are immunocompromised.

‘You Can’t Find Out Anything’ from the CDC

Dr. Paul Offit, a vaccine expert and adviser for the Food and Drug Administration, urged the CDC to “tell the truth” and “present the data”.

He insisted the release of the information would help explain to the public since more people are being vaccinated, the share of those who are infected and hospitalized, despite having received the vaccine, would be higher.

Offit stressed American scientists are forced to use data from Israel because the CDC doesn’t want to publish booster shot data. He wondered why Israel is better than the United States at gathering and publishing the relevant data.

Epidemiologist Jessica Malaty Rivera made it clear she is shocked the CDC even has that kind of data at all. Rivera dismissed the possibility the data presently kept secret by the CDC could potentially be misinterpreted.

In her words, releasing it would have the opposite effect; it would help “build public trust” and provide Americans with a “much clearer picture” of the actual pandemic situation.

Dr. Yvonne Maldonado, head of the Committee on Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics, is quoted as saying she’s been asking the CDC for 1.5 years about its data on the share of children with other medical conditions hospitalized over the coronavirus.

She only managed to get the needed data through a report published by The New York Times. Maldonado summarized the CDC’s approach to revealing data to the public as follows: one cannot “find out anything from them.”
