  • CDC overstating vaccinated numbers

    CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has been wildly inflating the number of “vaccinated” Americans by counting potentially tens of millions of “boosters” and second doses as first time shots, according to a report from Bloomberg News.

    To give you an idea of the scale of the CDC’s overreporting, in just one state, Pennsylvania, the CDC overreported the number of first doses for the elderly “by about 850,000” when compared to the state’s own revised estimates.

    There’s only around 2.27 million elderly people (aged 65 and over) in all of Pennsylvania.

    “Alison Beam, the state’s acting health secretary, said their review showed that some first doses were actually second doses — meaning that fully inoculated people were counted twice as half-vaccinated,” Bloomberg reported.

    From Bloomberg, “Vaccine Data Gaps Point to Millions More in U.S. Who Lack Shots”:

    The move acknowledged a dynamic state officials have discovered: in collating reams of data on vaccinations, the U.S. has counted too many shots as first doses when they are instead second doses or booster shots.

    Changes to national data on the scale of Pennsylvania’s revisions, for example, would mean increasing the number of Americans who are unvaccinated by more than 10 million.

    “The truth is, we have no idea,” said Clay Marsh, West Virginia’s Covid czar.
