I wish I had recorded the audio. The ACIP will take days to post the replay.
This whole morning has been stunning.
A mere half hour after Dr. Lee reminded the committee members during their pneumococcal vaccine discussions that their recommendations have direct real world consequences in terms of insurance payments and childhood payments as well, Dr. Daley claims that adding an EUA product with zero known benefits and unknown risks has nothing at all to do with school mandates, but is just an indication that they ‘believe’ the benefits outweigh the risks and that it’s just a conversation starter in the doctor’s office. Any further consequences are COMPLETELY on the state and local health departments and the CDC has absolutely zero control over any of it.
The ONLY question asked about COVID changes was someone (planted) asking if they can add an EUA vaccine to the childhood schedule.
The presenter’s response? We asked our legal department and….
Well, ok then.
No further questions.
clearly pharma is strong...I'm at a loss as to any ethics or conscience these people have. If any were neighbors of mine they'd get a punch in the mouth
Ok fine, technically speaking, the CDC has no LEGAL control over policies implemented by state health departments or by school systems in general. However, the CDC is well aware of the powerful influence of its "recommendations." Thanks to Covid19, we the people now also understand how such influence was and will continue to be used dictatorially by state governments, municipalities, and industries throughout the public and private sectors. All it takes is a little wordsmithing to absolve the CDC from all responsibility for any harm incurred while following their recommendations.
I'm confused. I thought there were 2 issues being voted on - 1) yesterday 2) today
1. Add the vaccine to the VFC (vaccines for children program) to make it financially accessible.
2. Add the vaccine to the recommended immunization schedule
You're saying both are now approved? I know #1 was, unanimously, yesterday.
Dr Bruce Vanderhoff press conference....omg...at it again...fear porn...masking...holiday season...get boosted..safe and effective...seasonal waves...blah blah blah. If I heard him correctly, cdc defines fully vaxed as primary series plus most current booster.
We Will Be Challenging Any State’s Covid-19 Vaccine Requirement to Attend School
Warner Mendenhall suggested your substack. Great posts! I just put up my first one. Substack is a bit different, but learning the ropes. Sharon > https://sharonbautistarnlnc.substack.com/p/the-critical-thinkers-have-left-the?sd=pf
