Who Says There’s No Good News? Stats On The Latest COVID Booster Show Declining Trust In CDC, Public Health
Another Failure From The 'Experts' To Convince The Public
As if we needed more proof that COVID destroyed the public health profession, the public response to this year’s booster doses is as good as you’re going to get.
Last year, the CDC, FDA, Dr. Fauci and other health “experts” spent months excoriating the public to get an updated, bivalent booster. They were adamant that those boosters, despite little testing and overhyped results, were necessary to prevent a significant winter surge and increased transmission. Talk about an illusion of control.
I’m happy to report almost no one listened.
Despite immediately authorizing the boosters for virtually all ages, and with little justification, a mere 17% of the population received their latest COVID shot. Whether through skepticism of the “experts,” immunity from prior infection, or the realization that the vaccines are ineffective at preventing infection, the public overwhelmingly ignored the advice coming from public health experts.
Unsurprisingly, that relentless commitment to ignoring the actual data has continued even today.
In response to newer variants that once again made the bivalent booster functionally useless, yet again, there’s a new, variant-targeted COVID vaccine this year. And in classic public health fashion, it was designed to stop a variant that’s already virtually disappeared.
Now, more than a month after they were authorized based on the testing on eight mice, we have an update on what percentage have gotten the new doses. After yet more excoriating from the CDC, public health “experts,” politicians and the media.
And it’s low. Really low.
