CNN seems to be claiming that the COVID-19 vaccines function perhaps something along the lines of a cure-all.
The so-called most trusted name in news, which its critics often suggest follows the political science, appears to be implying that the jab can have a positive impact on all-cause mortality.
“People who got COVID-19 vaccines were not only less likely to die from the virus, but they were less likely to die from any cause over the following months, researchers reported Friday,” CNN explained.
“Recipients of the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Janssen vaccines had lower non–COVID-19 mortality risk than did the unvaccinated comparison groups,” the researchers wrote in the weekly report of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
Dr. Stanley Xu, the leader of study, added that “COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States have shown again and again to be safe. This study also confirms their safety. In fact, it shows people vaccinated for COVID-19 had lower death rates than those who were not vaccinated, even when COVID deaths were excluded.”

The researchers examined data from 6.4 million “vaccinees” and 4.6 unvaccinated persons to reach their conclusions and noted, “The lower mortality risk after COVID-19 vaccination suggests substantial healthy vaccinee effects (i.e., vaccinated persons tend to be healthier than unvaccinated persons) which will be explored in future analyses.”
Individuals can read the CDC study in its entirety and draw their own conclusions.
Last week, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky acknowledged that the agency may change the definition of fully vaccinated to require three doses.
Earlier this month, she told CNN that the COVID vaccines no longer can prevent the transmission of the virus, even though the shots are otherwise working “exceptionally well…with regard to severe illness and death.”

According to CDC guidelines, “COVID-19 vaccines are effective at helping protect against severe disease and death, including from variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 currently circulating (e.g., Delta variant)” and that “Everyone aged 12 years and older is recommended to get vaccinated.”
Some folks on Twitter appears to be skeptical of the CNN narrative. Here is a sampling:

Alright, I’m fully vaccinated and pro-vaccination, but this headline is ridiculous. Let’s not pretend the Covid-19 vaccine offers any protection from heart attacks, car accidents, falls, cancer, etc. I know it offers better health outcomes, but it’s not a magic death shield. 🙄

It’s true, I got hit by a bus last week, walked it right off

This is some funny research! Get jabbed and now you are Superman! Jump off a skyscraper and boom! Didn’t even hurt at all! 😂

Lol. Now it doesn’t prevent Covid, but prevents you from dying?

They undermine their own headline:
“Part of this is probably because people who get vaccinated tend to be healthier than people who don’t”
Yeah, that just might explain it. In other words, it isn’t actually due to the vaccine.

The headline is misleading and hyperbole. Ugh. More messaging failure.

CNN reports a virtual fountain of youth. Get the fax and become like The Highlander, except everyone lives to make it to The Gathering.
