CDC changes vaccination definition ... The truth is inconvenient.

“The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.”

― George Orwell, 1984

@TylerAbeoJordan @lovizio That's at least the second one, they already re-defined pandemic.

@TylerAbeoJordan
well, if the lower is the old one then it was wrong, since therapeutic vaccines exist

@TylerAbeoJordan And just to answer anyone who thinks this change happened some time ago...

The old definition was in place as recently as the 26th of August... OF THIS YEAR

By the 2nd of September the CDC had done their MiniTru bit and changed the definition

@TylerAbeoJordan The fact that vaccines are not infallible was already known by scientists.

The current crisis made enough noise that dictionary compilers heard the news.
