FACT CHECK: Pallone still repeating lie that Covid vaccines stop infection

I thought this was settled, Save Jerseyans? But someone forgot to give Frank Pallone the memo.

Earlier today, Congressman Pallone took to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives and insisted that Covid-19 vaccines prevent transmission.

“This idea that vaccines don’t help prevent infection from the disease is just factually incorrect,” opined Pallone.

Of course that’s hogwash. Study after study has shown that vaccination – while helpful in preventing “severe disease” for certain segments of the population – does little-to-nothing to significantly lower the risk of human beings transmitting the virus to other humans. Pfizer admitted in late 2022 that the pharmaceutical giant NEVER TESTED whether its vax prevented transmission prior to release. Millions were duped into getting jabbed thinking they were doing it to “stop the spread.”

Pallone (D, NJ-06) is still reading from a two-year old script. By the way: he made his comments during Tuesday’s debate over Covid-related measures. The “Pandemic is Over Act” to end the (yeah, it’s still going on!) federal public health emergency. The bill passed 220-210 in a strict party-line vote. Meanwhile, the Freedom for Health Care Workers Act (designed to terminate the federal health care worker vaccination requirement) peeled off seven Democrats and passed 227-203.

President Biden is likely to veto both bills; he announced plans to end the “emergency” in May. Why May? Who the fuck knows, folks. They’ve been making it up as they go along for three years now.
