The CDC is caught up in yet another struggle with telling the truth.
According to the New York Times, the CDC has been hesitant to release data on the COVID-19 booster shots due to fear that it might make the vaccine appear “ineffective.”
The data is specific to those within the 18-49 age group.
Kristen Nordlund, who is a spokesperson for the CDC, claims that the reason the data hasn’t been released is due to the fact that it is “not yet ready for prime time.”
She also told the Times that, if released, the data might be misinterpreted to make the vaccines appear ineffective.
Are you awake yet?
The CDC openly admits it will only release data if it fits their narrative.
That is not their job.
Their job is to release the damn data.

Daily Mail has the details:
Two weeks ago, the CDC published the first significant data on the effectiveness of boosters in adults younger than 65.
But the agency, led by Dr Rochelle Walensky, did not share the information on those aged 18-49, who are considered to be the least likely to benefit from a booster.
It has also failed to provide information they held on child hospitalizations, scientists complained.
Kristen Nordlund, a spokeswoman for the CDC, said the agency has been slow to release the different streams of data ‘because basically, at the end of the day, it’s not yet ready for prime time.’
She said the agency’s ‘priority when gathering any data is to ensure that it’s accurate and actionable,’ and told The New York Times that they were concerned it might be misinterpreted to show the vaccines were ineffective.
BREAKING: The New York Times has reported that the CDC has been withholding data about the effectiveness of boosters in adults under 65.
What could they possibly be hiding?

The CDC refused to publish large amounts of COVID-19 data, instead choosing to keep it under wraps because of fears that the information would cause vaccine hesitancy, taking away the public’s ability to make fully informed decisions for itself. https://t.co/0fMDMLzh2T

The New York Times Makes A Stunning Admission About CDC Data On Vaccines
— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) February 21, 2022
Townhall has more on the CDC’s decision to not release all the data on vaccine effectiveness:
Last year, the agency repeatedly came under fire for not tracking so-called breakthrough infections in vaccinated Americans, and focusing only on individuals who became ill enough to be hospitalized or die. The agency presented that information as risk comparisons with unvaccinated adults, rather than provide timely snapshots of hospitalized patients stratified by age, sex, race and vaccination status.
But the C.D.C. has been routinely collecting information since the Covid vaccines were first rolled out last year, according to a federal official familiar with the effort. The agency has been reluctant to make those figures public, the official said, because they might be misinterpreted as the vaccines being ineffective.

Conservative podcast host Ben Shapiro slammed this stunning admission from the CDC:
This paragraph from the NYT is absolutely stunning. Everyone leading the CDC should be fired. Everyone. pic.twitter.com/FAJCv9W0LF

Others on Twitter shared their own viewpoints on the situation:
When an institution like the CDC refuses to release data, it undermines the dignity of the people it serves.
It undermines our ability to adapt and innovate, to discuss policy in light of the latest.
It undermines our open, honest & endless pursuit of answers.

In other words, the CDC refuses to release data that doesn't fully support the establishment narratives and pharma marketing. https://t.co/iVr2auhm8t

So the CDC want to convince people to take a vaccine that they refuse to share data on, as the data that they have, may show that it's unnecessary to take it!
Interesting way to convince the vaccine hesitant to get an experimental vaccine! https://t.co/dEwcoaErkY
