Wall Street Journal also reports increase in highly vaccinated regions

An analysis by ABC News of federal data found that a growing proportion of COVID-19 deaths are occurring among the vaccinated.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported that areas of the country with the highest vaccination rates, such as Northern New England states, “are coping with elevated cases and hospitalizations as the latest highly contagious iterations of the virus circulate.”

ABC News assured its audience that “experts said the increase in breakthrough deaths is expected with more Americans reaching full vaccination status.”

An ABC News contributor, Dr. John Brownstein, an epidemiologist at Boston Children’s Hospital, said the data “should not be interpreted as vaccines not working.”

“In fact, these real-world analyses continue to reaffirm the incredible protection these vaccines afford especially when up to date with boosters,” he said.

However, many of the most highly vaccinated nations, such as New Zealand and Israel, have seen a surge in cases amid the wave of omicron variants.

Portugal, which last year “had virtually no one left to vaccinate,” the New York Times reported, currently has one of the highest COVID-19 case rates in the world.

The ABC story cited Biden’s top medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci telling Boston Public Radio on Monday, “Given the fact that immunity is waning, we’ve got to get people boosted.”

However, last month a top FDA official said a fourth COVID booster shot should be seen as a “stop gap” measure, concluding “we simply can’t be boosting people as frequently as we are.”

Meanwhile, CDC and U.K. government data have indicated that the COVID-19 vaccines not only are ineffective in preventing cases and transmission, they rapidly lose protection against severe illness or death while posing risks.

A newly published long-term study by the prestigious British journal The Lancet that followed up on participants in the Moderna and Pfizer trials found the vaccines had no effect on overall mortality.

An analysis of CDC data by Dr. Meryl Nass found vaccinated Californians and New Yorkers were three times more likely to develop COVID than those who had prior immunity and were unvaccinated.

    CANADA includes information about hospitalizations and deaths among people who got a booster. Clark County and WA state have actively promoted booster injections. In Clark County, mobile strike teams were sent out during 2022 to “boost” elderly people in their residences as reported by the Public Health Officer.
    However, Clark County and WA state are failing to disclose hospitalizations and deaths among those injected with booster doses. ( also not revealing hospitalizations and deaths in children 5-11 who have been vaccinated.) See article for more info about impact of booster doses.

    The ‘mandated narrative’ insists that “the Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective”, they “prevent hospitalization and deaths”.
    Are those statements mere propaganda to induce fear and thereby exert more control over the masses?
    It has been obvious that many countries with high vaccination numbers also have increasing Covid-19 cases.
    Natural immunity is constantly being dismissed or ignored. Why is that?
    The human body has an inherently robust immune system that deserves respect, and a great deal more personal as well as scientific attention.

      Remember the days when we were allowed to think for ourselves and make our own vaccine choices? And for our kids? Nobody questioned that freedom. They who benefit from this both financially and power-wise absolutely do use fear to control people. And its working!! Unvaccinated people (remember when your medical history of vaccines was considered private?) are villified, demonized and shamed. Such good times.

        Those were good times, when individual privacy and the right to choose were respected. The current rhetoric and censorship is so reminiscent of Aldous Huxley’s statement that:
        “The purpose of propaganda is to make one set of people forget that other sets of people are human.”
        It also brings to mind what Abraham Lincoln said (long, long ago):
        “Democracy is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
        Lately it seems that mandates plus censorship govern what people are allowed to do, say, or think. Depressing and oppressive? For many it most certainly is. On the positive side, however, it will make clear-minded people even more determined to stand firm, take back their rights, and thereby become far more resilient.
        Thanks, Wolfie, for a great post.
