WASHINGTON (LifeSiteNews) — The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly updated its definition of “vaccine” and “vaccination” on September 1 from providing “immunity” to merely providing “protection.”

Between 2015 and August 2021, the CDC had defined a vaccine as “[a] product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease.”

But following increasing skepticism over the term “vaccine” being applied to the newly developed mRNA jabs against COVID-19 from experts in medicine, the CDC adjusted the definition at the beginning of September, now describing a vaccine as “[a] preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.”

Similarly, the word “vaccinating” is now, according to the CDC’s definition, less specific about the level of resistance a subject should receive from the medication.

Between 2015 and August 2021, the definition of vaccination provided by the CDC was “[t]he act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.” Now, the word “immunity” has been dropped in favor of the less precise term “protection” to define vaccination as “[t]he act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.”

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) highlighted on Twitter that the term “vaccination” had undergone a definitional overhaul already in 2015. Previously, the CDC had described vaccination more specifically as an “injection of a killed or weakened infectious organism in order to prevent the disease” the shot was designed to protect against.

Massie commented on the changing definition of “vaccination” over the years, comparing the CDC’s work with that of the ministry of truth from George Orwell’s 1984.

Investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Sharyl Attkisson also commented on the change. She noted that it was only after COVID-19 jabs were introduced, “and it was discovered they do not necessarily ‘prevent disease’ or ‘provide immunity,’” that “the CDC altered the definition of vaccines again to say that they merely ‘produce protection.’”

Corroborating Attkisson’s claim that the COVID shots are failing to provide the immunity originally promised by their manufacturers is renowned cardiologist and chief medical adviser to the Truth for Health Foundation Dr. Peter McCullough, M.D.

In an interview with vaccine injury lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr., McCullough highlighted research conducted by the Oxford University Clinical Research Group and published August 10 in The Lancet which found that individuals “vaccinated” against COVID were carrying 251 times the viral load of those who had not received one of the experimental shots.

“This group had actually calculated viral load from oral and nasal secretions in the past. The viral load was 251 times that of the previous unvaccinated era where they had used the same methodology,” McCullough said. “They had previous workers and patients who had COVID-19 before any exposure to the vaccines. And now the vaccinated were carrying a massive viral load and passing it to one another.”

Accordingly, the physician noted that the “vaccinated” are more susceptible to the Delta variant of the virus and that the attending efficacy of the jabs is “far below the 50% regulatory standard to even have a vaccine on the market.”

“The vaccines are failing,” he added.

Though the CDC changed its definition of vaccination following reports of a demonstrable downturn in the effectiveness of mRNA-developed COVID shot technology, the organization has defended its decision, attempting to allay criticism that the definition is being redrawn to accommodate the failing shots.

A spokesman for the CDC told The Epoch Times that “[w]hile there have been slight changes in wording over time to the definition of ‘vaccine’ on CDC’s website, those haven’t impacted the overall definition.”

The spokesman said the CDC’s prior definition that vaccines provide immunity “could be interpreted to mean that vaccines are 100% effective, which has never been the case for any vaccine.” He added that “the current definition is more transparent, and also describes the ways in which vaccines can be administered.”

“It’s also important to note that the modifications to the definition of ‘vaccine’ don’t change the fact that vaccines and the act of vaccination have prevented millions of illnesses and saved countless lives,” the spokesman concluded, providing no evidence to substantiate the claim.

The CDC did not immediately respond to LifeSite’s request for additional comment.

It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.

We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.

Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.

On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.

While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.

This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.

Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:

  • A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
  • A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
  • A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
  • A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
  • A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
  • A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
  • A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)

All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!

And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.

While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.

And now, it would seem that time has officially come.

"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.

This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."

In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."

These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.

As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.

But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.

This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.

Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

Thank you!

Following the dip in efficacy of the Pfizer shot, almost universally administered in Israel, the country became the first nation to authorize a booster shot of the abortion-tainted jab for its citizens.

However, within a week of the booster shots being rolled out, at least 14 people had experienced a breakthrough infection of COVID-19. Now, national coronavirus commissioner Salman Zarka has announced his intention to deliver a fourth shot to Israelis, apparently to keep waves of the virus at bay.

“It seems that if we learn the lessons from the fourth wave, we must consider the [possibility of subsequent] waves with the new variants, such as the new one from South America,” Zarka said in August, according to the Times of Israel.

The COVID czar added that “thinking about this and the waning of the vaccines and the antibodies, it seems every few months — it could be once a year or five or six months — we’ll need another shot.”

“This is our life from now on, in waves,” he said.

Beside waning efficacy, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows a substantial number of adverse effect reports following the reception of a COVID jab, with a total of 675,593 such reports, including 14,506 deaths.

Of these reports, use of the mRNA-based shots developed by both Pfizer and Moderna preceded 92 percent of all injuries and 93 percent of all deaths on the database.
