Surprise! The NYT reveals the CDC has been collecting hospitalization data on vaxxed folks for a full year but hasn't shared it over fears that the vax might look "ineffective"
· Feb 22, 2022 ·

It would seem like a worthwhile bit of data to know just how many Americans who are vaccinated against COVID-19 are nevertheless being hospitalized due to the disease.

Well, the CDC agrees! They just don't want you to know it:

For more than a year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has collected data on hospitalizations for Covid-19 in the United States and broken it down by age, race and vaccination status. But it has not made most of the information public...

[T]he 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.

Huh! Gee, that's odd, isn't it?

I mean, it was weird enough when Scotland did it:

Now we learn that the U.S. has been hiding its own extensive data on COVID cases because of the exact same reason—fear of "misinterpretation!"

I wonder what the data say?

Maybe some day we'll find out!
