Or do they???

Guess it depends on what day of the week, and who is saying what…

The CDC has apparently changed the @#@$%@% definitions of vaccine and vaccination!!!!

The old-

Immunity: Protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.

Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.

Immunization: A process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. This term is often used interchangeably with vaccination or inoculation.

The new-

Immunity: Protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.

Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but some can be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.

Immunization: A process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. This term is often used interchangeably with vaccination or inoculation.

  1. Let the obfuscation and finger pointing commence !!

    I thought a vaccine prevented infection and that a therapeutic was an aid to fighting the infection.

    So it appears the vaccine definition has been ‘watered down’. How convenient. Can’t wait to see the screaming woman – white cat memes that will come from this. Thats me – always looking for the silver lining …

  2. We have always been at war with East Asia.
    The chocolate ration has been increases to 22 grams per week.
    The word of the day is “thoughtcrime”.
    Today’s 2 minute hate is “Donald Trump”. Again.
    Patriotism is treason.

  3. Yesterday, the Biden administration fired 11 Trump appointees to military service academy advisory boards..
    The usual suspects were Kellyanne Conway, H.R. McMaster, and Sean Spicer were included among the ones who were to be terminated.

    The press IS the enemy of the people because it is NO LONGER a FREE PRESS. They are propagandists who work for the Democratic Party as we saw clearly over the last 8 months…. Their complete change now is proof of their loyalty to the Democrats

    Sean Spicer, said of Jen Psaki
    “I hope you don’t expect the press to say anything negative about Biden cause they won’t.”
    The Biden administration asked 11 officials appointed by former President Donald Trump to military service academy advisory boards to resign or be DISMISSED, or FIRED, CNN reported Wednesday.

    The list includes prominent members of Trump’s cabinet, such as former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, former senior counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway
    Yesterday Sean Spicer who has a regular spot on Newsmax.TV said..
    “Tonight, all Trump appointees including myself have been kicked off the boards of the United States Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, and West Point in an unprecedented move by the Biden administration.”

    Sean Spicer tweeted a copy of his letter where he said… “Instead of focusing on the stranded Americans left in Afghanistan, President Biden is trying to terminate the Trump appointees to the Naval Academy, West Point and Air Force Academy.”

    And In a letter addressed to Joe Biden, Kellyanne Conway accused the President of using the dismissals as a distraction from current bad news events, including the U.S. Troop Withdrawal from Afghanistan.
    Im my Humble Option this was Pretty Sick Partisan Idiocy, what ever happened to the Adults in the room? It’ seems as if there aren’t any, anymore. It seems as if we’ve reached the point where the Democrats, hate, the Republicans even more than our Foreign Enemies! And even worse, they don’t even have any idea how ignorant they are being..This imbecilic way of leading the country has got to go. It’s literally killing us.
    And the people who complain about “partisanship” these days are usually Democrats who are suffering from Buyers Remorse.. And regretful decisions
    I would say that the real truth is that many, if not MOST of the Democrats and most of the Republicans would agree that the present government, is LYING TO US, committing Treason against the US, and even running up our Debt. In order to create Socialism..And that Most American’s are Sick, and Tired seeing what has happened to our country, and want to put an end to it.

    The Secretary of State says those 100 Americans are being delayed because the Taliban says they don’t have proper papers but they say that’s completely untrue. It is Jen Psaki who said WE can’t really bring them here without proper identification. “White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday during a briefing that President Biden‘s administration is “not going to allow” charter flights with unvetted passengers from Afghanistan to land on American military bases, due to safety concerns.”
    WHAT A JOKE THIS WHOLE MESS IS
    Yesterday, Jen Psaki said “We don’t know the people on those charter flights so we can’t let them into our country.”

    WHY IS THAT OKAY ON OUR SOUTHERN BORDER? What is it now, 200,000 unknown illegal migrants?

    This coming Saturday is the 20th Anniversary of 9-11 and Our Country Has NEVER been SO UNSAFE! So the bottom Line is WE HAVE FORGOTTEN!

  4. They’re just doing what liberals do. Change the meaning of the words to meet your meme.

  5. Remember when we had sensible vaccination policies?

    “Do I need the vaccine?
    If your doctor recommends that you have the vaccine because of underlying health conditions or if you’re over 50 the answer is a straightforward ‘yes’. ”

    This is for the regular flu, not the Chinese flu.

  6. This works out. Based on new definitions ivermectin taken prophalactically for the rona is now a vaccine and the people using it are vaccinated.

  7. No COVID, no “flu” shots will enter my body, ever. Haven’t had a flu shot in ten years and haven’t had the flu in ten years. I do spend some effort and cash keeping my immune system in top shape.

  8. Sigh – I’m in a pickle: Just got a coveted GOV job a couple of years ago in a geographic location I’m very happy to be in. Now, if pResident-ish Biden “mandates” that I get vaccinated, do I get the Jab or quit for something else. I’m not certain at this point what “something else” is yet…
    I’m also curious – how much legal standing does a “mandate” have over conditions of employment, especially when said “mandate” post-dates employment…

    • UPDATE: Based on the new definition of Vaccine and Vaccination, if I take “Inverm*”, zinc, Vitamin C, or other drugs orally, that does meet the requirement? I haven’t seen the requirement for documentation…

  9. WSF- Understood and concur.

    SC- Exactly!!!

    WN- THAT is a hard choice, and yes, one would think so, but then again, .gov is gonna specify, I’m sure.

    Ohio- Sigh…

    Frank- Those that don’t study history…

  10. When you control the language you control the society. The left learned this lesson a LONG time ago….which is why they
    constantly change the meaning of words so that words no longer have ANY meaning.
