Trump advisor Birx Admits She Knew COVID-19 Vaccines Were Never “Going To Protect Against Infection.” By Zachary Stieber.

One of the former U.S. officials who led the COVID-19 response during the Trump administration said July 22 that COVID-19 vaccines were not expected to protect against infection.

I knew these vaccines were not going to protect against infection. And I think we overplayed the vaccines. And it made people then worry that it’s not going to protect against severe disease and hospitalization,” Deborah Birx, the White House COVID-19 response coordinator under former President Donald Trump, said during an appearance on Fox News. …

This is one of the most highly-effective vaccines we have in our infectious disease arsenal. And so that’s why I’m very enthusiastic about the vaccine,” Birx said on an ABC podcast [in late 2020, when the vaccines became available].

She made no mention of concerns the vaccines might not protect against infection.

The vaccines continue to protect against severe disease and hospitalization, Birx said on Friday. “But let’s be very clear — 50 percent of the people who died from the Omicron surge were older, vaccinated,” she said.

Biden took over as the vaccines were being rolled out:

The reason given for vax mandates was that everyone had to take them in order to extinguish covid and reach herd immunity. But everyone now knows the vaccines do little to prevent spread because what protection they offer soon wanes, and now we find it was known at the time.

So there was never an excuse for vaccine mandates, was there? They were always both morally and medically wrong.
