Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said that three new COVID-19 studies show that the efficacy of the vaccines has dropped among individuals who received their shots early on in the pandemic.

Citing three studies that were released by the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, Walensky said on Aug. 18 that the vaccines’ efficacy decreases over time in preventing infection. Although protection against death and hospitalization is “holding up well,” the COVID-19 vaccines’ effectiveness is “waning” in even preventing severe illness or death, she said.

“Even though our vaccines are currently working well to prevent hospitalizations, we are seeing concerning evidence of waning vaccine effectiveness over time and against the Delta variant,” Walensky said during a news conference in explaining why federal officials are now recommending that booster shots be given to Americans eight months after they’ve been vaccinated with the Pfizer or Moderna shots.

The two vaccines, the most widely used in the United States, were pegged at 95 percent and 94.1 percent effective, respectively, when granted emergency use authorization in December 2020.

But the efficacy against infection has plummeted to 53.1 percent for both vaccines, one of the new studies found.

Researchers with the CDC’s COVID-19 Response Team and the Vermont-based Lantana Consulting Group discovered that the two doses of mRNA-based vaccines were about 75 percent effective in preventing infection in nursing home residents from March through May. During June and July, though, the number dropped by 22 percent.

“Because nursing home residents might remain at some risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection despite vaccination, multiple COVID-19 prevention strategies, including infection control, testing, and vaccination of nursing home staff members, residents, and visitors, are critical. An additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine might be considered for nursing home and long-term care facility residents to optimize a protective immune response,” the researchers, who analyzed weekly data from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare, wrote.

SARS-CoV-2 is another name for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19.

Another study analyzed age-adjusted vaccine effectiveness in New York City between May 3 and July 25. Researchers with the New York State Department of Health and the University at Albany School of Public Health found that effectiveness against infection for adults dropped to 79.8 percent from 91.7 percent. They also said that data from four databases, including the Citywide Immunization Registry, showed that vaccine effectiveness (VE) against hospitalization “was relatively stable,” ranging from 91.9 percent to 95.3 percent.

“The factors driving the apparent changes in VE, including variations by age, are uncertain,” the researchers wrote.

Possible factors include the Delta variant causing higher viral loads, along with clinical trials used for emergency authorization being conducted before variants emerged.

“These findings support a multipronged approach to reducing new COVID-19 hospitalizations and cases, centered on vaccination, and including other approaches such as masking and physical distancing,” the researchers said, including additional vaccine doses.

The third study evaluated 1,129 fully vaccinated patients at 21 hospitals across 18 states.

Researchers, including scientists from the University of Iowa, the University of Michigan, and Washington University, said the effectiveness of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines against hospitalization declined to 84 percent between 13 and 24 weeks after vaccination from 86 percent between two and 12 weeks after vaccination.

Without booster shots, Walensky suggested, there will be “worsening infections over time” among those who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

In the backdrop of the CDC’s findings, Walensky said that “we are planning for Americans to receive booster shots starting next month,” saying that their initiative is designed to “stay ahead of this virus.”

As a result, booster doses of the mRNA vaccines made by Pfizer and Moderna will likely be distributed starting the week of Sept. 20. White House COVID-19 response coordinator Jeff Zients and Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy told reporters during the news conference, however, that their plan is contingent on whether the CDC and Food and Drug Administration authorizes the booster doses.

The CDC’s advisory panel last week recommended booster shots for immunocompromised individuals, a day after drug regulators issued emergency use authorization for third shots for the population.

Some outside scientists expressed concern about the move, which could inhibit efforts to get vaccines to developing countries.

“I’m truly disappointed. This decision is not justifiable at all looking at this data. We are going to use up millions of doses to reduce the small risk of mild infections in fully protected people with a tiny risk of hospitalisation, while most of the world waits for a first dose,” Dr. Muge Cevik, an infectious disease expert at the University of St. Andrews’s School of Medicine, wrote on Twitter.

“The message I got from reading all three [studies] was that there may be some reduction in infection protection with delta in nursing homes, but no data about waning protection from severe disease or hospitalization,” Dr. Walid Gellad, professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine, added.

Weeks ago, the CDC and FDA said that individuals “do not need a booster shot at this time,” contradicting a recommendation made by Pfizer.

Last week, the CDC director told The Wall Street Journal that she’s “really struggling” with how to communicate the CDC’s findings and recommendations to the American public.

Pfizer and Moderna officials didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on Walensky’s statement.

  1. Have you seen the secret contract between Pfizer and your government, here is a shorter version, which touches on the main points, I have the actual contract which is rather long, as a PDF, but I don't know how to post it here.
    When you agree to the test vaccines, you sign away your rights to your body, which Pfizer (and presumably the big 4) now own and when you die, your body, which was part of an experiment, becomes the property of Pfizer, if they wish that – so to all intents and purposes, your care and welfare from your government ceases at the time of your vaccines:
    Pfizer vaccine contracts with governments strangle people’s rights with no recourse for obvious malfeasance
    Aug 4
    Cybersecurity Expert Ehden Biber has legally obtained copies of the Pfizer contracts with Albania, Brazil, Israel and the EU.
    He discovered the first one on an Albanian website, where it was published on January 2021. Its veracity was confirmed when he was able to see Brazil’s Pfizer contract, which is virtually identical on that country’s health ministry website, with a signature that was verified by DocuSign. He has since seen virtually same contract with the EU and heard the details of Israel’s Pfizer contract.
    The contract, which exposes Pfizer to zero liability for anything and places the liability for everything on the government, which is called the “Purchaser” in the contract.
    The deal is a criminal shakedown of epic proportions, the likes of which it is hard to even fathom. Why would anybody sign it?
    Reading the contract’s language sheds some light on the inexplicable behavior of the government authorities of the world and on the true nature of this whole COVID operation.
    It also may shed light on the untimely deaths of two African presidents and the Haitian president, who all very understandably refused to sign this contract!
    In his blog, Biber wrote, “If you were wondering why #Ivermectin was suppressed, well, it is because the agreement that countries had with Pfizer does not allow them to escape their contract, which states that even if a drug will be found to treat COVID19, the contract cannot be voided.”
    And here’s a shocking clause about supplying the product:
    “Pfizer shall have no liability for any failure to deliver doses in accordance with any estimated delivery dates… nor shall any such failure give Purchaser any right to cancel orders for any quantities of Product.
    “Pfizer shall decide on necessary adjustments to the number of Contracted Doses and Delivery Schedule due to the Purchaser … based on principles to be determined by Pfizer … Purchaser shall be deemed to agree to any revision.”
    So Pfizer can breach its own contract but their hitmen will kill you if you refuse to sign it!
    You can really see how this Globalist entity that is Pfizer hates nation states and will not recognize their laws but it acts like a “government that dictates to other governments around the world,” as Biber says. If we look around at the complete lawlessness and the meltdown of once-solid institutions all over the world, you can see that Big Pharma is being used like a massive battering ram against the national laws and national sovereignty of all nations.
    The contract forces the “Purchaser”, which is how they refer to the nation that is contracting with them to defend Pfizer’s interests and not those of the citizens they’re supposed to be representing and defending – and whose taxpayer money they’re using to pay Pfizer these billions of dollars.
    As Biber tweeted, Israel has turned into a pharmaceutical #BananaRepublic, where the priorities of a multinational supercedes the priorities of its citizens.
    Not only is Pfizer held completely harmless from all claims, the “Purchaser”, ie, the national government is responsible for Pfizer’s legal defense against any and all claims!
    However, “Pfizer shall have the right to assume control of such defense… and Purchaser shall pay all Losses, including, without limitation, the reasonable attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred.” Pfizer makes sure the country will pay for everything.
    I really don’t get why governments across the world have signed this. What’s in it for them? Did they sign this voluntarily? It really seems like a colossal shakedown and a complete abdication on the part of these governments to protect their people. It’s malfeasance on a scale that beggars belief.
    THE ONLY WAY to get a product recall on these shots is if you can prove fault in Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP), which is regulated by the FDA.
    However, CGMP will tell you NOTHING about mRNA, because we don’t have CGMP for an mRNA vaccine, so you cannot prove CGMP malpractice.

  2. Covid is a bio-weapon and the vaccines were never intended to stop anyone from getting Covid and potentially dying – the effectiveness of the vaccines were never 95% and everyone will get Coronavirus Delta, whether vaccinated or not, but the way to kill Coronavirus dead before it ever gets to be Covid anything, is with my free cure, which would stop the pandemic dead, if everyone were to use it:
    The Achilles Heel of Coronavirus, is while it is still in the developing stage as Coronavirus/Covid in the warm, wet areas inside the nasal passages of your head (nose) and before it gets to become Covid in your head and lungs, 10 to 14 days later. If Coronavirus is not treated with my free iodine salt clean water cure to flush out your nasal passages, as soon as possible, or during self isolation, it becomes Covid, which is where the money is. You cannot catch Covid! Always breathe through your nose and keep your mouth shut, because you really don't want the Coronavirus to seed itself in your lungs!! My free salt water cure has "absolutely nothing" to do with mRNA test vaccines. Treating Coronavirus with my free iodine salt clean water cure, flushes out the nasal cavity and kills Coronavirus, before it gets to be Covid, irrespective of if you have had mRNA vaccines or not. Mix one heaped teaspoon of iodine salt in a mug of warm or cold clean water, cup a hand and pour some of the solution in, then sniff or snort that mugful up into your nose, spitting out everything which comes down into your mouth, by so doing, you flush out your nasal cavity, where Coronavirus lives. If you get a burning sensation (which lasts for 2-3 minutes) then you have a Coronavirus infection.When the soreness goes away, blow out your head with toilet paper and flush away, washing your hands afterwards and continue doing my salt clean water nasal cavity flush cure, morning, noon and night, or more often, if you want, until, when you do my free salt water cure, you don't experience any soreness at all in your nasal cavity. While you are at it, swallow a couple of mouthfulls and if you get a burning sensation in your chest, then you are killing the Covid/Bronchitis there too, so keep it up, each time you do a salt water sniffle, until the soreness in your head and lungs goes away – job done. Pour some of the solution on a flat surface and allow to dry and see what you have then. This is what coats the nasal passages in your head and kills Coronavirus/Covid off. You can see why it is so effective. This is what I have done for the past 26.5 years and I am NEVER ill, nor do you need to be either.
    Please pass it around to everyone who wants to give it a try.

    "Even so, a key issue is that the current vaccines block severe disease but do not prevent infection, said Dr. Gregory Poland, a vaccine scientist at the Mayo Clinic. That is because the virus is still capable of replicating in the nose, even among vaccinated people, who can then transmit the disease through tiny, aerosolized droplets"
    Reuters – what my free salt water cure stops.

    He added that “Current vaccines are great at preventing [CO1] serious infection deep in the lungs, but not at blocking infection in the upper airways. What's needed is a nasal-spray (vaccine) that would stop the coronavirus from taking hold at all.” – what my free salt water cure does and stops.

    Keep safe. Richard

    By Sophie Mann – August 12 2021:
    'Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the CDC, said Thursday she is "struggling" to communicate with Americans about the ongoing parameters of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Walensky said, "I am really struggling with how to communicate to people who are worried about politics, and I just want them to continue to be at their family’s dinner table."

    Since Walensky assumed her role with the incoming administration, the CDC has issued a number of shifting and conflicting guidances on behavior, including masking, pertaining to the coronavirus.

    "There was an enormous pressure for vaccinated people to be able to do things that they wanted to get back to doing," said Walensky of the agency's May decision to ease mask guidances for vaccinated Americans.

    Walensky, along with Dr. Anthony Fauci, have delivered a number of confusing statements to the American public over the course of a months-long media barrage. Just last week, Walensky said during a CNN interview that vaccine will not prevent the transmission of the virus, though they are working "exceptionally well."

    "Our vaccines are working exceptionally well. They continue to work well for Delta with regard to severe illness and death, they prevent it. But what they can’t do anymore is prevent transmission," said the CDC head.

    Consistently confusing messaging from agency heads has led the federal government right off a cliff in terms of trust placed in them by the American people. A poll from a few months ago reveals that just half of Americans trust the CDC and FDA. That figure is again in jeopardy as the CDC waffles on guidances pertaining to the Delta variant and, especially, mask mandates for children as the new school year begins."

    To me, this is another sign that the wheels are coming off the bus, or that the ship is sinking deeper.
