The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention refrained from making information public that indicated vaccine boosters had no significant advantage on people aged 18 to 49.
CDC orchestrated COVID data for political gains
Since the Biden administration started injecting booster doses in already fully vaccinated people, the CDC is busy collecting data to study the efficacy of these doses.
The agency divided the data and segmented it based on age, race, gender, vaccination status, and many other metrics.
While it issued the data of booster doses showing its effectiveness for people above 65 years old, the agency intentionally concealed the same data for people falling in the age group of 18 to 49 years old.
Not only this, but the agency just started displaying wastewater data on its website, even though many states had been reporting this data to the CDC since the beginning of the pandemic.
The CDC is hiding basic collected data about vaccine and booster performance for fear it will be misinterpreted.

Reportedly, much of the data which was not reported by the CDC could have played a critical role in helping states channel their resources better for the tackling of the pandemic.
States would have made their decisions wisely, had the CDC reported the data regarding hospitalization, the death rate by age, and vaccination status.
Likewise, the wastewater data not reported by the agency had the potential to predict the emergence of new COVID variants in a better fashion.
CDC falsified claims debunked
According to the New York Times, experts were relying on data from Israel to make decisions regarding the booster shots of 18 to 49 years old people, amid the inefficiency of the CDC.
Still, the spokeswoman of the CDC, Kristen Nordlund, emphasized the agency was reluctant to issue the data, as it wanted to ensure its accuracy and credibility before making it public.
Similarly, Nordlund claimed the information could have been “misinterpreted” by the people.
Corrupt and politicized @CDCgov hiding almost all the booster and other covid data it collects–including hospitalizations by vaccine status. Why? Because it might be "misinterpreted" in a way to undermine vaccines. https://t.co/gbOg0x6Ol2

While criticizing the CDC’s actions, Samuel Scarpino, the managing director of pathogen surveillance at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Pandemic Prevention Institute, noted the CDC is as much of a political institution, as it is a medical one.
According to him, the decisions of the CDC are usually made outside the institution. He was referring to the political interference of the federal government within the agency.
This is not the first time the CDC manipulated the data for the sake of substantiating a liberal narrative. Last year, the agency faced backlash for not tracking COVID infections in vaccinated people who were either hospitalized or died of the disease.
Even though CDC officials think their data can be perceived wrongly by people, experts believe otherwise.
For instance, an official of the COVID Tracking Project, a project to track COVID data, Jessica Malaty Rivera, asserted many private data collection projects are working better than the governmental organizations.
Being a part of one such organization, Rivera claimed her own project continued collecting and reporting such data, but it was never misinterpreted.
