For people interested in COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases…
Posted on June 25, 2021
I have received several emails over the last few months asking for a chart of vaccine breakthrough cases. This would be a very interesting statistic to have, given that daily positive test numbers have recently stopped their downward decline, and people naturally start to wonder where these new positive tests are coming from. However, unlike their push to publish obviously tainted “case” counts for nearly 15 months, the CDC has decided to keep vaccine breakthrough case information locked up in a private government database, accessible only by the CDC and the local health authorities submitting reports.
According to the CDC,
Cases will be reported to CDC through state or territorial health departments. These health departments will enter, store, and manage data for cases in their jurisdiction directly in the national COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough REDCap database. Local health departments, laboratories, or healthcare providers who identify a possible case will be directed to their state health department for further investigation and reporting to the national system. CDC will monitor the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) and Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) for additional cases. For cases that meet the criteria, CDC will upload available data reported to those systems into the national vaccine breakthrough REDCap database.
Until recently, the CDC had been monitoring this breakthrough data for all cases, whether or not the case led to a hospitalization or death. However, this changed May 1st when the following message appeared on the CDC’s website:
As of May 1, 2021, CDC transitioned from monitoring all reported vaccine breakthrough cases to focus on identifying and investigating only hospitalized or fatal cases due to any cause. This shift will help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance.
Given the 15-month push to
brainwash convince the public that asymptomatic spread was the real problem with COVID-19 and its spread, it is strange that the CDC now seems completely uninterested in tracking non-hospitalization-linked breakthrough cases, whether they be symptomatic or asymptomatic.
The CDC even admits that their collection method for vaccine breakthrough cases is inadequate:
The number of COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infections reported to CDC likely are an undercount of all SARS-CoV-2 infections among fully vaccinated persons. National surveillance relies on passive and voluntary reporting, and data might not be complete or representative.
So reporting is voluntary, and we’re not interested if the person isn’t hospitalized or dies.
As a result, early detection of any vaccine-resistant COVID-19 variants will be impossible. Sure, the deaths will be reported to the CDC–weeks after the variant is spread far and wide all over the country.
What the CDC is doing with breakthrough cases is not scientific, and buried at the end of their directive to local authorities about reporting breakthrough cases is an admission of that fact:
CDC has determined the project is non-research public health case investigation. The objective is to evaluate cases of COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough reported to CDC. It is not intended to be a systematic investigation of all persons in the United States with SARS-CoV-2 infection following vaccination and, therefore, will not be generalizable to a larger population.
This all sounds very much like how a government bureaucracy works:
- Determine amount of unused $ in your department budget
- Develop a mediocre plan to make it look like you care
- Admit in your own words that what you’re doing can’t be used to make any determinations
- Get paid
So, unfortunately we will never be able to see good data on vaccine breakthrough cases. The CDC has already dropped the ball and there won’t be any way in the future to go back and get a true account of the data.
