But…But…It Wasn’t Meant To Stop Transmission
It happened again. The Branch Covidians are moving the goalposts about the vax.
Where’s a Bernie meme saying “I’m once again asking for you to forget what I said in the past” when you need it?
First, they said the vax was to stop the spread and reduce transmission counts. They even made up a fun term for the Branch Covidians who caught it: “breakthrough cases“.
Well, it now seems like those breakthrough cases aren’t as rare as they made it seem. Naturally, the Covidians then had to move the goalposts to make sure the narrative still fit within their religion.
I’m sure you’ve heard it. The entire hivemind is spouting off garbage about the vax not being meant to stop the spread. It’s only to reduce symptoms, didn’t you know?
What a great vaccine. One so effective that it doesn’t even stop the spread of the virus or stop you from being infected and getting sick.
But that’s not the point of this article. I’ve done enough of those for now. In this article, I want to target the Covidians that are making up these stories about the covid vax being designed to reduce the likelihood of hospitalization or symptoms.
Yet, that’s simply not true. It’s an outright lie. It was sold to us as something that could help others by reducing transmission. The main goal may have been to prevent serious illness, but that does not mean that they did not also state that it would reduce or remove transmission. Both conditions can exist. That was the entire point of pressuring others to get it, because save grandma and all.
So, I went through my saved listings and put together numerous prominent people saying it would stop transmission or infection. I kept these saved because I knew the goalposts would move. It was obvious this would occur. Figured it’d make for a fun article, so here we are.
Let’s start with the Supreme Potato of the United States himself:
But again, one last thing. I — we don’t talk enough to you about this, I don’t think. One last thing that’s really important is: We’re not in a position where we think that any virus — including the Delta virus, which is much more transmissible and more deadly in terms of non — unvaccinated people — the vi- — the various shots that people are getting now cover that. They’re — you’re okay. You’re not going to — you’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.
“If you’re vaccinated, you’re not going to be hospitalized, you’re not going to be in the ICU unit, and you’re not going to die.”
Oh but that was just a slip-up, certainly.
But here’s our glorious covid medical leader saying a similar thing:
[The vax has] well over 90% protection against disease.
The vaccines protect even against the other variants.
We’re seeing that it is very unlikely that a vaccinated person, even if there’s a breakthrough infection, would transmit it to someone else.
Even with the rare breakthrough cases, it’s a very very low likelihood of transmitting it.
They don’t seem to be so “rare” anymore. Neither is the transmissibility, considering that we have the highest cases ever right now and over half of our population is vaxxed. Weird how that happened. You’d expect the opposite, even if it just reduced transmissibility by a little bit.
Oh but let’s not forget the director of the CDC, Dr. Rochelle Walensky:
Our data from the CDC today suggest that vaccinated people do not carry the virus.
What about the Chief Executive Officer of Pfizer?
Excited to share that updated analysis from our Phase 3 study with BioNTech also showed that our COVID-19 vaccine was 100% effective in preventing #COVID19 cases in South Africa. 100%!
800 participants enrolled in South Africa with 0 cases of #COVID19 observed in the vaccinated group. Of the cases observed the majority were confirmed to be of the B.1.351 lineage, the prevalent strain in South Africa.
These data support previous results from immunogenicity studies demonstrating a robust neutralizing antibody response to the B.1.351 variant.
Or what about from our favorite media personality that for some reason has Covid credibility?
From Rachel Maddow herself:
“No we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person… The virus does not infect them…It cannot use a vaccinated person as a host to get more people.”
“A vaccinated person gets exposed to the virus, the virus does not infect them, the virus cannot then use that person to go anywhere else”
“It cannot use a vaccinated person as a host to go get more people.”
What about CNN?
AstraZeneca vaccine appears to substantially reduce transmission of the coronavirus, study shows
London (CNN) — The Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine appears to substantially reduce transmission of the virus, rather than simply preventing symptomatic infections, UK researchers have suggested.
Yes, vaccines block most transmission of COVID-19
Taken together, the evidence shows that full vaccination with either mRNA vaccine cuts risk of infection by at least half after one dose, and by 75 to 90 percent two weeks after the second dose. Though less research is available on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the trial data suggest an infection reduction of more than 70 percent is likely. With the vaccines preventing this much infection, they’re also stopping the majority of vaccinated people from passing along the virus.
Pfizer vaccine not only prevents you from getting sick but also stops you from spreading the virus: Israel studies
“If a person gets infected despite the fact they’ve been vaccinated … does that person have the capability of transmitting that infection to another person?” asked Doctor Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease doctor during a White House press briefing by the COVID-19 Response Team on Wednesday.
The new stunning studies still need to be peer-reviewed but they show Pfizer’s vaccine protects us even more than we thought.
“The vaccine that I’ve been saying was great for a while is even better than I thought,” said Doctor Michael Teng, a virologist at USF Health.
Teng says the studies are among the first to show the vaccine may stop the spread of the virus.“
We always talk about getting a vaccine to protect yourself and protect the community. Now we know it kind of does both and this is gonna be amazing,” he said.
Meaning, even if you still catch the virus after vaccination — what’s known as a breakthrough infection — symptoms won’t just be less severe but you likely won’t spread it to anyone else.
The studies show after getting the doses virus transmission was cut by 94% in symptomatic cases and 90% in asymptomatic cases. In the U.S., the Mayo Clinic had similar findings with both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
It’s official: Vaccinated people don’t transmit COVID-19
“Our data from the CDC today suggests that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don’t get sick, and that it’s not just in the clinical trials but it’s also in real-world data,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told Rachel Maddow on Monday, March 29. Walensky was describing the results of a new CDC study of vaccinated Americans, which found that they not only had very high resistance to COVID-19, but also to asymptomatic infections of the SARS-CoV-2 virus – and, by extension, are very unlikely to spread it to other people.
Now, to the new CDC study. While it has finally freed federal public health officials to declare that vaccinated people don’t carry the virus, it’s hardly a surprising finding. There was early evidence of reduced transmission during vaccine trials.
The WHO never outright said it prevented transmission, but they did heavily hint that it reduced it significantly and that breakthrough infections were rare:
So we’ve already talked about how the main function of vaccines is to protect you against getting disease. We’ve also talked about the fact that if you were to get disease, a rare event among vaccinated people, but it does occur that your disease will be less severe than it would have been if you weren’t vaccinated. And the third thing that vaccines do is they reduce the transmission of the infection of the virus from one person to the next. And the way that vaccines do that is in a number of different ways. The first is they can protect you against getting infected at all. The second way that they work is if you become infected, you’re actually shedding that virus for a shorter period of time than if you weren’t vaccinated. And the third way that vaccines work is, again, if you happen to get infected, the amount of virus that you have in your nose, in the back of your throat that you are shedding and potentially transmitting to somebody is less of the virus. There’s less density of the virus in you and so less risk that you transmit it to somebody else.
Surely, all of this put together means that our case numbers would be down since the vax reduces or stops transmission and over 70% of our population is vaxxed.

Well, that’s awkward.
I hope you enjoyed a fun stroll down memory lane.
For those that don’t know, this is called gaslighting. It’s being done on a national scale.
The next time you hear the Branch Covidians talking about their new religious position, make sure to remind them of these videos and articles. Along with the probably 500 others like them that you can find with a quick internet search.
I’m also taking bets for the next moving of goalposts. What extraordinary logical leap do you think they’ll take next? What do you think they’ll conveniently forget?
All bets welcome. Leave them in the comments.
