The CDC is at it again with distorting the Coronavirus narrative. This time, in a press released titled, New CDC Study: Vaccination Offers Higher Protection than Previous COVID-19 Infection, the CDC is distorting the truth on natural immunity through leaving out key details.
See the press release here: https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2021/s0806-vaccination-protection.html
Cutting to the chase, the CDC suggests that being vaccinated provides better immunity than natural immunity, but the study they rely on is about those who contracted Coronavirus and then subsequently received the vaccine.
The misleading element is that, instead of comparing those who got the shot without prior infection, the CDC is relying on the confounding variable of those who already contracted the virus.
Quoting the CDC: In todays MMWR, a study of COVID-19 infections in Kentucky among people who were previously infected with SAR-CoV-2 shows that unvaccinated individuals are more than twice as likely to be reinfected with COVID-19 than those who were fully vaccinated after initially contracting the virus.
