According to recently leaked emails, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) spread fake information to Facebook, while the partners worked to battle false news.
A Facebook representative requested help with tackling claims about vaccines for infants and toddlers, including the claim the vaccines weren’t effective, in a message posted on June 3.
The official claimed the CDC assisted the company in “debunking claims about COVID vaccines and children.”
CDC endorses vaccines for small children with unfounded information
Several weeks later, after U.S. regulators allowed the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines for young children and the CDC endorsed them, a CDC official responded by presenting unsupported information.
"Yesterday’s 'misinformation' is today’s… public health guidance, which is an illustration of the fact that science and censorship are totally incompatible, and that censorship can only halt the progress of science and.. https://t.co/4iw5oUwPFp

The CDC official made all sorts of claims about the vaccines’ efficacy that just weren’t confirmed. For instance, there is no proof that immunizations protect young children from serious disease and death.
In Moderna’s trial for kids aged six months to five years, there were no occurrences of severe COVID-19 reported, including none in the placebo group.
Six of the seven incidences of COVID-19 in Pfizer’s trial for kids between the ages of six months and four years involved children who had received the vaccine.
Additionally, the trials’ endpoint was a specific amount of antibodies, which is thought to offer protection against COVID-19, but has not yet been confirmed.
The level was calculated using data from adults who participated in the initial trials, which were finished in 2020.
Pfizer’s vaccine now regarded as untrustworthy
Moderna’s vaccine had poor efficacy estimates for protection against infection. Pfizer’s vaccine had greater efficacy estimates, but was regarded as untrustworthy.
Dr. Tracy Hoeg, a California-based epidemiologist, told The Epoch Times via email that the trials didn’t provide data about severe diseases.
The CDC states on its website that it vowed to base all of its judgments “on the highest quality of scientific data that is derived publicly and honestly.”
I don’t remember the CDC getting banned from Facebook or Twitter for spreading Misinformation, do you?
CDC Gave Facebook Misinformation About COVID-19 Vaccines, Emails Showhttps://t.co/0HrTFXo506

The emails demonstrate the CDC was more cautious earlier in 2022.
Despite the fact the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines against both infection and severe disease plummeted since Omicron emerged in late 2021, Facebook continues to remove content that claims vaccines are ineffective against severe illness or death.
According to the emails, the CDC examined several of the claims featured on Facebook’s official website.
For instance, a CDC representative examined seven claims on November 8, 2021 and deemed them all fraudulent. Facebook currently lists all seven as false.
This includes the assertion — which some experts agree is accurate — that the COVID-19 vaccines change the immune system.
The assertion that people’s blood is altered by COVID-19 vaccinations is also included. Numerous vaccine recipients had abnormal blood, according to at least one study, even though blood clots are a documented side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine.This article appeared in Powerhouse News and has been published here with permission.
