Sep 8, 2021 – PJ Media – The CDC Just Made an Orwellian Change to the Definition of ‘Vaccine’ and ‘Vaccination’ – by Matt Margolis
For your entire life, you’ve known that when you get vaccinated, you’re protected from a particular disease. You’ve probably been vaccinated for such diseases as polio, tetanus, measles, diphtheria, and others, and you no longer have to worry about them, because the whole reason your parents took you to the doctor to get those shots was to protect you from those diseases. Polio, in particular, has been completely wiped out in the United States thanks to the immunity created by vaccination.
This is why the CDC says that vaccines provide immunity, which means that we can be exposed to a disease without becoming infected by it.
At least they used to.
A recent change on the CDC website should disturb all of us because it appears that the CDC is trying to change how we understand vaccinations.

So in a week, a vaccine went from being something that “produces immunity to a specific disease” to something that merely “stimulates the body’s immune response against diseases,” and a vaccination no longer “produces immunity” to a disease, just “protection” from a disease.
Does anyone else find this disturbing? Why did the CDC suddenly redefine “vaccine” and “vaccination” to make them sound similar to your basic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug or a prescription drug you have to keep taking regularly?
No explanation for the change is given.
Is this part of the Biden administration’s efforts to make the public accept regular COVID-19 boosters by changing how we understand the purpose of vaccines? Vaccines, we’re now supposed to accept, don’t provide us with immunity, just protection from disease. This vague definition essentially makes it easier for the government to recommend endless boosters for COVID (or any other disease) because vaccines, they say, no longer make us “immune.” And yes, there are several vaccines that do need boosters, but that never changed our understanding or the definition of vaccines and vaccination.
The Biden administration already had a problem with vaccine hesitancy in the wake of its Johnson & Johnson vaccine pause. You want to know how to increase vaccine hesitancy instead of decrease it? Do something like this.
