Hey Entropy I have known that vaccines do not prevent infection since 1948.
I was vaccinated with the most successful vaccine ever in 1946 at age 6.
In 1948 I came down with smallpox, which has 30%+ mortality. Covid is a piker at 1.2%
Job of vaccines is not to prevent infection because no vaccine can build a virus filter in the nose.
Only job of vaccines is to create more anti-bodies for a specific virus. That's it.
I am alive and doing well at age 83 because the smallpox vaccine helped me kill the virus before it killed me.
I am amazed how many people do not understand simple common sense situations.
Ok, so many times the anti-bodies created by vaccine kills the virus before any symptoms appear. That can give (false) impression that vaccine "prevented" infection.
Back to covid, I came down with symptoms 3 months ago.
Made a fast recovery in scant 42 hours, without any medicines or doctor or hospital. Looks to me like the vaccine had done it's job. The home test kit said I was positive for covid. The symptoms were heavy, body aches, fever and non-stop dry cough. 42 hours I woke up feeling almost normal.
I am not pro-vaccine of any kind. It must be voluntary between you and your doctor.
"CDC Director Rochelle Walensky tells Congress that vaccinated individuals can, in fact, spread COVID, contrary to her earlier statements, attributing this change to “an evolution of science.”
The point is PDX5 that Govt and Pharma categorically stated it DID prevent infection, and that anyone who said otherwise( as u just did) is a anti vaccine, anti science nut who must be deplatformed.
NOW they admit, as you say, they were 'wrong' because 'the science evolved' - which, it didnt' obviously, they just lied orginally and attacking anyone who pointed out the lies, as they did with many things
they will admit down the road.
Govt and big Pharma get away by making false statements because most people lack knowledge and common sense.
