There’s been a lot of discussion at the state and national level lately about – in light of COVID-19 vaccine booster shots being highly encouraged – whether those who’ve previously been considered “fully vaccinated” should be considered so anymore.
The State of North Carolina just made a subtle change in the terminology it uses to report coronavirus stats and it could be a precursor of bigger things to come.
The state uses a web-based tool – its COVID-19 “Dashboard” to report a wide variety of coronavirus stats for the state and its counties. On Thursday, Jan.13, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) announced in a press release that it was changing the dashboard’s “Fully Vaccinated” category to “Vaccinated with Two Doses or One Dose J&J.”
Since the federal and state government has begun requesting everyone to get a booster shot, many people – including a host of government health officials – have been questioning whether a person who met the initial criteria for being “fully vaccinated” should still be classified in that way. They have argued that someone would have to have their initial shot or shots, plus a booster, in order to truly qualify as “fully vaccinated.
The NCDHHS stated the reason for the Dashboard terminology change is “to better show how many people in North Carolina are up to date with current COVID-19 vaccination recommendations” – but some see the move as a clue that the “fully vaccinated” status may in the future require more than two doses of vaccine or more than one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
A January 13 press release reporting the change goes on to say, “These additional data will help NCDHHS provide better transparency for vaccinations and additional and booster doses administered across the state.”
The release from NCDHHS states that “The dashboard shows the percent of people who have: received at least one or two doses of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccination series (Pfizer and Moderna); one dose of a one-dose series (Johnson & Johnson); and, now, vaccinated individuals who have received at least one booster/additional dose.”
The booster and additional dose data will now be shown by population group (5 years of age and up, 12 and up, 18 and up and those 65 and over) “to reflect the percent of the vaccinated population who is eligible and has received at least one additional/booster dose.”
Even natural immunity diminishes over time. Glen Beck recently announced that he now has covid a second time after having covid in 2021 and going unvaccinated throughout. So makes sense to now count boosted as fully vaccinated. Would be more valuable to also count the number of people unvaccinated that have had covid in the last 6 months to get a full picture of our potential for herd immunity now that so many have been infected since omicron.
It would also make sense to differentiate between “people in the hospital who test positive for COVID” and “people in the hospital BEACAUSE OF COVID”. Hospital reporting numbers are ridiculous. Everyone who gets admitted has to be tested. So if I am there for a heart attack, but test positive, it still counts as a person admitted to the hospital with COVID.” So it should not be a shock to anyone that “COVID hospitalizations” are up. If Omicron is more contagious and everyone in the hospital is being tested, regardless of the reason for admission, then obviously the reporting numbers are going to go up.
The Cone Health lady at the County Commissioners meeting could not even accurately report the admission numbers to the Commissioners when asked the other night. So, so dumb.
BTW, Glenn has not missed a single episode of his show while sick and has very openly reported that his symptoms are no worse than a cold. He openly mocked the Yahoo/Huff Post, etc. articles that took his own words out of context to make it seem like he was on death’s door in their headlines. Guess what Yahoo and Company, colds, flu, etc. all get into your lungs too. Dummies.
The shot is not a vaccine. It is a temporary boost in immunity at the expense of long term immunity.
Booster shots will continue to be require even though doing so reduces your immunity against COVID and other diseases and my cause other serious compilations as coronary vascular complications
Coronary vascular complications are 5 times more likely from covid infection that the Pfizer vaccine. But you can spread misinformation all you like as this is a free country I guess.
That’s a precise projection you make, you must be a Pfizer salesman. Is there a reputable source you can cite or did that come from the CDC website? Barry Bank is correct with his summation, figuring your last name must be Fauci as you are quick to deflect an accurate statement with the label of misinformation. Post your nonsense in the Summerfield Scoop where it belongs with your fellow travelers.
Hahaha, Joe Rogan podcast when he interviewed an immunilogist who fact checked him in your same talking point. Joe looked it up and conceeded the point.
Not my brst source
Once you’re on the Injection Treadmill, you’re on it for life. Not only are you at the mercy of their next definition of “fully vaccinated”, but your body becomes increasingly dependent on ever less effective “booster” shots.
Just Say No… to dependency on Big Pharma (and the diktats of the State).
Everyone will be considered unvaxxed eventually. lol, such a joke.
The people who I talk to just want to catch it now and push through. Get this BS behind us. The narrative will collapse.
You got it! chris had better start visiting stables now so he’ll have a new dead horse to beat.
No way chris will go near a horse stable he’s already up to his neck in horse crap now
There is no way data will ever be of any value for someone who wants to do a serious study of this virus, prevention, treatment, or future variants given the constantly changing definitions of collection parameters. It seems “they” don’t want clear data or studies and haven’t from the beginning. It’s been the ideal way to keep anyone from having truth and only misinformation. It’s disgusting.
Yeah, I don’t think most people even believe Fauci, Biden, Walensky et al any more. They’ve destroyed their own credibility.
It is what they say it is. Depending on the definition of “is”.
I’m still fully pure blood (so is the fam). Claim as many shots as you want are required to be faux, I mean fully, no, I mean faux vaccinated (and oddly more likely to be infected). I don’t care. We’ve taken tons of family vacations, including international, our kids don’t go to any school with “public” in it, and I’m not getting shots of any drug I don’t need, especially this one. I’m certainly not going Mengele on my kids because leader Fauci demanded it.
Sooner or later people will have the courage to give up on completely failed Covid mandates, or they’ll be in so much cardiac and neurological trouble it doesn’t really matter what they think.
Don’t worry faux-vaccinated 4 shot folks, I’m sure the studies out of Israel showing the 4th shots creates insanely high blood levels of completely useless antibodies won’t get in the way of you having access to shot 5. You keep doing you. It’s not an addiction, it’s “safety.” Just because Omicron was mild in largely unvaccinated South Africa does not mean your 4 shots didn’t protect you from a slightly worse head cold!
I do get amusement in how everything the “public health” super geniuses have said turned out to be completely wrong, and yet those with an IQ below 90 continue to tell the world exactly who they are by obediently and unquestioningly following their commands. The weather people suddenly look like prophetic fortune tellers in comparison (The weather people actually got something right in the last 2 years).
Because, ya know, outdoor masks, cloth masks, effective vaccines to stop the spread, lab leak is conspiracy, just two weeks, 100 days, the kids are just fine in solitary confinement, dehumanizing by covering faces won’t cause mental health issues, 6ft, – all turned out to be SO accurate. Keep listening to their every word. It’s really intelligent to follow the advice of people with a history of being completely wrong!!!! LOL!!!
Spoken in the Voice of Dr. Anthony Faulty:
Everyone needs to get the boosta, because the third dose increases immunity, so after the fourth dose you are protected.
Once 80% of the population has received the fifth dose, the restrictions can be relaxed as the sixth dose stops the virus from spreading.
I am calm and believe that the seventh dose will solve our problems and we have no reason to fear the eighth dose.
The clinical phase of the ninth dose confirms that the antibodies remain stable after the tenth dose.
The eleventh dose guarantees that no new mutations will develop, so there is no longer any reason to criticize the idea of the twelfth dose.
