Kamala Harris’s push for ‘protecting the vaccinated’ gets big challenge: ‘Doesn’t the vax do that?’

A tweet from Vice President Kamala Harris is leaving many people wondering if she perhaps might be unaware of the stated or original purpose of the COVID-19 jab.

In messaging that appears contradictory to those who follow the latest pandemic developments on social media, Harris took to Twitter to assert the following on behalf of the Biden administration:

“By vaccinating the unvaccinated, increasing our testing and masking, and protecting the vaccinated, we can end this pandemic. That’s exactly what we are committed to doing.”

“There has been widespread confusion over vaccine rhetoric from the Biden administration, as a push to protect the vaccinated has become a common talking point, despite the vaccines already providing strong protection for those who’ve gotten them,” Fox News reported.

“Harris’ tweet was no exception and was met with criticism and confusion.”

Along these lines, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention seemed to have made a stealth edit to its definition of vaccination, which was publicized by U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), among other internet sleuths.

The new government definition is “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.” This language replaces prior wording that a vaccination produces “immunity” to a specific disease.

In a video clip that is separately circulating on social media in which Harris seems to be lamenting the “unconstitutional” Texas fetal heartbeat law, she asserted, in part, that the “right of women to make decisions about their own bodies is not negotiable. The right of women to make decisions about their own bodies is their decision, it is their body.”

This has prompted some to wonder why the Democrats have abandoned the longstanding “my body, my choice” philosophy when it comes to vaccines.

The Harris protecting-the-vaccinated tweet comes even as there seem to be more so-called breakthrough COVID-19 infections, i.e., among those who already have received two injections. This has prompted some talk among public health officials about the need for a booster shot for fully vaccinated persons.

“Meanwhile, unvaccinated people face a far greater chance of death from the COVID-19 delta variant,” according to a new CDC study, Fox News added.

In any event, Twitter seems gobsmacked that President Biden’s running mate seems to think that the already-vaccinated need a safe space from those who are unvaccinated.

Here is just a sample of the responses:
