‘That’s it, we’re hanging up now’: Chuck pokes the poke-police in absurd call with ‘CDC’

When it comes to the pandemic and more importantly, the COVID-19 vaccination, there’s more the “experts” don’t know than they do know.

Early on, there was a heavy emphasis on following the science. And while the Biden administration still falls back on this mantra, more and more their actions appear to run counter to the science. At least, in the eyes of the critics, it does. But then, casting a skeptical eye to the actions of government is almost verboten in America today. It’s also a certain way to draw the attention of Big Tech, and a possible ban.

An interesting Twitter thread touched on a topic that is garnering very little attention today, that being those who’ve already had COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people who have had the virus get vaccinated, even though they appear to have natural immunity.

The CDC explains online that this is “because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19,” although the agency admits that it’s “rare” to get infected again.

“Even if you have already recovered from COVID-19, it is possible — although rare — that you could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 again,” the website reads.

This is where “Chuck” comes into play, as the Twitter user details a mythical phone conversation with the CDC in a thread relying on what’s currently known and being reported about the vaccine.

As seen above, Chuck is told that he should get poked because the experts don’t know how long natural immunity lasts. The natural question to follow is how long does the vaccine’s immunity last?

Unfortunately, the experts don’t know this about an experimental vaccine being administered via an emergency use authorization, having yet to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Chuck asked about studies suggesting natural immunity could last for years, before inquiring about not getting sick if he gets poked — of course, we already know that not to be true, as breakthrough cases have been in the news for better than a week. Just ask the fleeing Texas Democrats.

But amid the mad push to get everyone vaccinates, the exchange suggests the focus is now centered on the “un-poked” getting COVID-19, not the poked.

With the scientific waters here being murky, the conversation then shifts to why a healthy person should get poked, with the CDC falling back on one’s moral duty to their fellow man.

Never mind that if you get poked, you could still spread the virus, which is not to say you have fully protected yourself even if you do.

With things only getting more confusing, Chuck is told the important thing, the “bottom line,” is that “as long as you are unpoked, you pose a threat to poked people” and that they could die.

Even if being poked is not a guarantee that you won’t spread the virus. In effect, the CDC is talking in circles.

Chock full of additional questions, Chuck presses forward, but the CDC has heard enough: “That’s it, we’re hanging up now.”
