Director of CDC has all the shots, and she has the Covid

428


On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky tested positive for Covid-19. Walensky is up to date with her vaccines, the agency reported, and is experiencing mild symptoms. “Up to date” may mean that since the shots became available, she has had as many as five vaccinations — two primary vaccinations and two or three boosters — against Covid.

Slightly more than 68% of the population of the United States have completed the primary series of Covid vaccinations; for many people that means they had two shots since they became available in early 2021. Just 49.1% of Americans who are eligible for boosters have had one booster, and 40.6% have received a second booster shot. In Alaska 47.8% of eligible people have gone as far as getting one booster shot.

The CDC released data in September that shows less than 4% of Americans eligible for the latest booster shots had received them.

The updated bivalent Covid-19 boosters by Moderna and Pfizer are available in Alaska under emergency use authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug and Administration, and are approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Alaska vaccine providers ordered over 38,000 doses of the updated bivalent boosters in September.

Walensky will isolate at home throughout her contagious period, and those who came in contact with her are being tested.

  1. She’ll be just fine, just like everyone else who contracted COVID. I would like a statement from Walensky and Fauci on how this is happening. The COVID shots and boosters are, as I’ve heard hundreds of times, needed to prevent infection, hospitalization, and death! Please, tell us what happened.

      • It did not. People may have died with COVID, but they didn’t die of COVID. Granted, it may very well have been the straw that broke the camel’s back, but it didn’t kill by itself. Underlying conditions were the root cause.

        • That’s right. It has been rare for anyone to die from covid with no comorbidities. I have known four people that died with covid–all three in poor health and / or elderly. However, I have known five (all male, btw) that suffered early and unexpected death, suddenly. Yes–there was a common thread–and I think you know what it is…

      • The list of medical failures during the Covid scare is truly pathetic : “vaccines” that did not prevent infection nor transmission, lockdowns, facemasks, sending elderly Covid patients back into nursing homes, using a Covid Protocol that discouraged early treatment, closing schools, closing gyms, banning the use of off label drugs, prescribing Remdesivir, a drug that is known to cause kidney failure. to Covid patients, prescribing Paxlovid, the overuse of ventilators, etc., etc., etc! The CDC, WHO NIH, AMA and other mainstream medical groups have a lot to answer for. Hopefully, some of those responsible will be going to prison!

    • Jim, “everyone” is a broad word. Let’s say the vast majority of people are just fine after getting COVID… much like the common flu. As you recall, they pivoted from their original messaging of “preventing infection” to “reducing the severity of symptoms.” Its similar to pivoting from “global warming” to “climate change” alarmism (in spite of the plain fact climate has always been changing). Totalitarianism has always been, and continues to be, promoted with lies. In fact, the actual leader of this ideology is the father of all lies.

      • I will say this, as mentioned above, people died with COVID and most likely it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. I actually witnessed a doctor purposely omit underlying conditions of a patient and stated only COVID as cause of illness. How often was this repeated around the country and world?

  2. It couldn’t happen to a better authoritarian sociopath.
    .
    But keep pumping the clot shots, Rochelle Rochelle! Maybe you might actually convince some particularly ignorant and gullible idiot that they are actually “safe and effective” — right after you also convince them of the reality of Santa Claus.

  3. Maybe(???), what are the odds she really “knows” the harmful and detrimental risks associated with taking the jab and, in reality, is only taking a placebo but announcing she has taken the Jab & Boosters? I’m guessing that there’s a fair amount of Dr’s and Medical Field Preoffessionals doing this very thing for family and themselves!

  4. This covid “vaccine’ crap is a bunch propaganda and BS. I’m not “vaccinated”, boosted nor tested, (and NEVER will be) and have never worn a (useless) mask. I’ve been around folks who say they’ve tested positive for covid and others who have had the “shot” and I’ve never had so much as a sniffle or cough or felt ill, while my “shot” friends have been home sick in bed. I have my God given natural immunity, and being around my grand kids and other kids helps keep my immunity up, and I trust that more than any govt. invented or mandated shot. I also don’t get any flu shots, and it’s been so long I can’t remember the last time I had a cold or any flu symptoms. And I’m 77 years young. I don’t buy into all the govt. and fake news talking heads fear mongering BS.

  5. I am with Ron DeSantis NO VACCINE MANDATES for school children for Covid. Parents should have a choice to vaccinate or not. Governor Dunleavy needs to come out and announce the same for Alaskan Children. I will bet he won’t as he thinks Dr. Zink (Who is a number 1 vaccine advocate.) needs to be honored. If Dunleavy does not come and state No Mandate I will vote for Charlie first and him second.

  6. Such BS. The idiots keep pushing the garbage and they supposedly contract it? If they did contract it after all their mandates, why aren’t they suffering from the detrimental side effects and/or deaths? Enough is enough. Call out what it all is, a psy op out to control every thought/action you have.

  7. While it is true that being vaccinated does not prevent you from catching Covid, the evidence is overwhelming that COVID vaccines and booster reduce the risk of your getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, or dying from Covid if you become infected. For example, in Texas, over the last 28 days, unvaccinated people were 12 times more likely to test positive for Covid, and 29 times more likely to die from Covid, than vaccinated people. Source: https://www.dshs.texas.gov/immunize/covid19/data/vaccination-status/. Of the 8,787 people who have died in Texas due to COVID-19 since early February, at least 43 were fully vaccinated, the Texas Department of State Health Services said. That means 99.5% of people who died due to COVID-19 in Texas from Feb. 8 to July 14 were unvaccinated, while 0.5% were the result of “breakthrough infections,”

    There have about 90,000 Covid deaths in Texas since the start of the pandemic. approximately 40,000 of the 90,000 COVID-19 deaths in Texas occurred after May 1, 2021, when any American who wished to take COVID vaccine could do so . Data from the Texas Department of State Health Services (Texas DSHS) reports that 85% of COVID-19 deaths in Texas in 2021 occurred among the unvaccinated, while in the first three months of 2022 during the omicron wave the CDC finds rates of death in the US were 20 times higher among unvaccinated people compared to people who were vaccinated and had received a booster. Therefore, the vast majority of the 40,000 deaths occurred among the unvaccinated.

    While we are currently experiencing a decline in Covid cases, doctors believe a new wave of Covid cases will be coming this winter, due to new variants that have emerged. A new wave of cases has begun to spike in Europe, and in the past the cases in the U.S. have surged weeks after such surges in Europe,

    If you are over 60 or have underlying health conditions that make you more vulnerable, you should consider getting the new booster that is designed to protect you from the omicron variant. Get your medical advice from your doctor, not from media celebrities trying to politicize the response to the pandemic, or uninformed commentators who have been mislead and believe the Covid pandemic and the vaccines are a hoax.

    • Rick, while I appreciate your efforts and statistics, and agree wholeheartedly with your point of view, you will find that you are wasting your breath (and keystrokes) here on MRAK. This site is a haven for Anti-vaxxers, and the Editor continues to publish stories that bait them, and draws them out of the woodwork. These people are dug in and secretly fear that they should really be getting vaccinated, but unfortunately they now can’t do so without losing face and suffering the scorn of their like-minded cohort.

      No amount of data will ever convince them that they are wrong, even though none of them are really qualified to pass judgement on the safety or efficacy of Covid vaccinations.

      But please keep up the good work, as several of us do here on MRAK, in the hope of changing at least a few minds. We tilt at windmills, but every now and then we may do some good.

      “The truth has no defense against a fool determined to believe a lie.” – Mark Twain.

      • Follow the money Whid. Many people getting wealthy from COVID promotion. Many people (including me) getting reactions from the vax. One of my employees had to be medevac’d from anaphylaxis due to the jab. What started as a great effort to combat something that was basically unknown morphed into a boondoggle and too much hype – and profiteering and other BS. Yes there is a level of paranoia among some that is excessive – it stems from asking the “why” question and learning that the good doctor Fauxi oversaw the program that developed the virus in the first place. But Fauxi is now a millionaire… Apply your Twain quote to your own apologetic.

      • Where is the “data” indicating how many people have not chosen the shot and have suffered little to none from the effects of Covid. When the government gives health agencies monetary incentives to report deaths that can be attributed to the the Virus, how can you validate their “data”? Perhaps maybe the people that drank the koolade are more interested in validation of their decision than admitting that they were wrong to trust this corrupt administration. My doctor, who doesn’t receive any government aid, still doesn’t push the shots, but will administer them at the patient’s request. And in regards to Mark Twain, which side is the fool? The big experiment still has not revealed all of the results. Time alone will tell, but my opinion is that we have been hoodwinked for political and monitory reasons.

      • You will not change any minds as people can see for themselves the evil that is the forced jab- especially to young people, children, and infants. They see the great percentage of people with adverse effects (8-10% is astounding). They see the corruption and censorship from big pharma, big tech, and the feds. They see alternative treatments work in other countries and question why we can’t even discuss them here or why doctors who advocate for them lose their medical license.

        I am a pureblood and have sacrificed much to be so. Initially I was hesitant until there was a phase 3 trial. Now, after so many have needlessly suffered and we have the data I will never take this experimental medical device you call “the vaccine”.

        You are not the only one with a pithy Twain quote.

        “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.”

      • “An Inconvenient Truth about people like you, you posses an inability to follow a logical progression of facts, as you cling to pseudo science, sitting atop your pile of cherry-picked data.”

        So said the prophet of profit Al Gore some 16 short years ago. Hope you have a better track record down the road Ms Whidbey…….

      • You do provide a laugh. Beyond that, not much else.

        Since you quoted Twain, let’s have another. “There are lie, damn lies, and statistics”.

      • Mark Twain’s comments on human nature are as relevant today as it when he wrote those them. Human nature has not changed! The comments below yours show how utterly convinced some misinformed people are that the vaccines are dangerous and ineffective.

        Do the vaccines have side effects in a small percentage of people who get the vaccine? Yes, as do all vaccines. But even before the Covid vaccines were developed, there was a group of anti-vaccine hysterics who promoted false claims about the risks of vaccines. They went into overdrive with loads of false claims and misinformation about the Covid vaccines. Part of that has been to grossly overstate the risk of serious side effects from the vaccines.

        Then some republicans decided to politicize the pandemic, and the response to it. Despite the fact that the shutdown of the economy, and the development of the vaccines, occurred during 2020 which was the final years of the Trump administration, many conservatives (including quite a few posting comments on this story) are convinced that the seriousness of the pandemic has been overstated (over 1 million Americans have died, and many more suffer from the effects of long Covid) and that the vaccines are some sort of hoax. And of course, despite the fact that the shutdowns and school closures occurred in both red states and blue states, they are convinced that democrats are to blame for everything.

        The combined effect of the efforts of the anti-vaccine crowd and political operatives looking to use the pandemic for political advantage has lead a group of people to take it as established fact that the pandemic was a hoax, that the vaccines don’t work, and that the virus is no longer a public health threat. They are wrong on all counts.

        To date most of the deaths and long Covid cases caused by the virus have occurred in older adults. But a fair number have occurred in middle aged adults as well. And even younger adults who are obese, have diabetes, hypertension, smoke cigarettes, or are immuno-compromised are at a greater risk of developing severe cases of Covid. As I said above, if you are over 60 or have one of these conditions, you should talk to your doctors about whether to get vaccinated, and not listen to the blathering idiots who regularLy post anti-vaccine nonsense on this blog.

    • I personally witnessed a doctor omit underlying conditions and rule a patient ill from COVID only. I feel true conviction this was not an isolated case, not in just this country, but around the world.

    • What a tissue of lies. Are you making money from this or do you enjoy advocating for evil or is it something more personal and darker?

      As far as I am able I will now be your constant companion here refuting what your masters have told you to say.

    • Why get the vaccine? It changes how your body fights infection. I know personally lots of people who got the vaccine and since have caught every cold and three people that have had styes in their eyes, heard of lots of other negative reactions to the jab.

      My wife and I had the original Covid but luckily had a doctor that steered us to the City sponsored Monocle Antibody clinic and felt better the next day. Too bad more people were not aware that was an option.
      I have not even had a cold since and will never get the jab. I’m 63.

    • Wait for another three to five years when all of the vaccined and boosted start dropping like flies from the body’s changed physical chemistry brought on by DNA alterations and transformations. It will eventually get you. That was the plan from the beginning.

  8. Tsk, tsk, tsk. Obviously, the good doctor has neglected to get the SIXTH booster – a newly-concocted and essential vaccine that will marvelously stop Covid-19 infections where the earlier vaccines had miserably failed. But first another shoe must hit the floor, and this will be the announcement that Dr. Fauci has contracted Covid-19 for the SECOND time. I can hardly wait.

    • hasalaska – I believe Fauci did, in fact, contract Covid for a second time. He was taking another worthless & ineffective Phizer drug, Paxlovid, after his initial Covid infection and after testing negative for a few days he became reinfected! Like I said, you cannot make this stuff up! It only takes about 30% of the population to be gullible & dumb enough to swing the rest into a mass hypnosis hysteria. Judging by some of the comments on MRAK that number seems remarkably accurate!

  9. Correction:

    You know, I was going to comment on this story, but heck – it’s Saturday night, and I really just don’t feel like wasting my breath on people who refuse to believe scientific facts.

    “The truth has no defense against a fool determined to believe a lie.” – Mark Twain.

    • The party of science are the biggest science deniers out there. But you do you, boo.

      Examples.
      -lockdowns don’t work
      -the shot clearly doesn’t prevent Covid
      -masking is/was unnecessary for everyone not in a high risk group
      -the virus came from China and it’s not racist to say so. It’s (gasp) science
      -forcing kids to miss two years of school has harmed a generation of kids already harmed by public education.
      -the economic and societal damage to society far exceeds the health risks
      -Covid is no riskier than the flu for most people (until the “party of science” gain of functions a lethal variant.

      I’ve said it before dog. While you’re welcome to your opinions, perhaps it’s best for you to stay on the porch.

    • Wouldbe the Cur, you wouldn’t know science if it smacked you in the face. What you radical leftists actually have is nothing more than a blind and ignorant faith in the self-serving pronouncements, demands and mandates of so-called “experts” and authority figures. The fact that you cannot see the blatant and consistent contradictions and lies in their utterances throughout the so-called pandemic is only proof of your complete lack of independence of thought, and your lack of moral and intellectual integrity. Blind conformity to corrupt authority is not “science”, and is in fact the precise opposite of it.

      • Honestly, Jefferson, I don’t know how you get out of bed every day to face your bleak and embittered existence.

        You should have a little faith in those who are actually trying to help society, and that includes you.

        • And again, you can express no thought — well, no sentiment, as actual thinking seems beyond your abilities — that does not reflect on your ignorant and blind faith in (corrupt) authority. I simply do not understand people like you, Cur, who cannot and will not think for themselves, who put their faith in sociopaths and criminals, and who demand equal blind conformity from everyone else around them. Honestly, your mentality is that of the four year-old who still believes in Santa Claus.

  10. And yet, I have never had a single politically and power grubbing shot and have never had the ‘Covid’.

    Go figure.

    Could it be that the shot itself, and the boosters afterwards therein, actually contain the virus?

    Nahhh…

  11. I recall both Walensky and Fauci saying that the Jab was 97% effective in keeping you from catching Covid. Later in a forum I watched She and Tony both scoff at the assertion that the Jab had any ill side effects, and state that not one person had perished from a reaction to the Clot Shot. (Trump isn’t innocent here either, pushing his operation warp speed)

    We’ve been had folks. What are you going to do about it? How about punishing these people by first voting them out of power?

    • My understanding is that the clear majority of the evidence now shows that the vaccines do NOT stop transmission. Biden and Fauci both perpetrated the lie that vaccines prevent transmission.

  12. There is more than enough data to flush the vaccine down the toilet. Anyone who takes the boosters at this point have a death wish and are destroying their hearts and immune system. The shot was never designed to stop COVID-19 or prevent transmission. The greatest medical scandal in U.S. History!

    • Questions for you and Rick..
      As a child when you got the measles, mumps rubella shots did you have a booster every 6 months and then still got them “just not as bad”? No you did not.
      How about Tetanus? You need a booster every 10 YEARS and guess what, if you come in contact with lock-jaw you are protected and not just have “less symptoms”
      Even with the flu shot you do not need a booster and if our scientist got the virus mixture right, you also will not get the flu. A 50% community vaccination will protect the vulnerable as the virus can not find as many hosts and the spread slows considerably.

      Covid mRNA does none of these things. You are welcome to continue to believe, but allow others to make their own decisions based on the facts as they see them. Yours is but an opinion amongst many.

  13. Suzanne, not a story about the AFN and you’re putting out this garbage. Maybe you’re like Kelly and just in for a buck.

  14. My brother died as a result of the Covid vaccine. My friend is jabbed and boosted. Now she has an unknown “rare white blood cells” a problem that the Dr’s don’t know how to treat.
    They can shove their narrative. This jab is not a vaccine… It never has been. It’s designed to weaken you and or kill you.

  15. Blood clots, micro blood clots, heart failure, if the sheep can convince me with some real science these aren’t by products of the vax I’ll run and jab myself.

    • Plus the mRNA spike crap that’s started to show up in breast milk, all perfectly normal, nothing to see here, move along people.

  16. Like I have stated before, what master do you serve? The pseudo-science vaccine theory will only lead those who swallow it hook, line and needle will get what they deserve… a false reality. I will choose nature over a psy-op.
