In response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the CDC could not provide any documents supporting their claim that vaccines don’t cause new variants to appear.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims it lacks documentation to back up its claim that COVID-19 vaccines do not create COVID-19 variations.
The vaccines causing variations is a hoax, according to the CDC’s website.
“FACT: COVID-19 vaccines do not create or cause variants of the virus that causes COVID-19. Instead, COVID-19 vaccines can help prevent new variants from emerging,” according to the website.
“New variants of a virus happen because the virus that causes COVID-19 constantly changes through a natural ongoing process of mutation (change). As the virus spreads, it has more opportunities to change. High vaccination coverage in a population reduces the spread of the virus and helps prevent new variants from emerging,” it also says.

The charity Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) requested documentation from the CDC under the Freedom of Information Act.
“All documents sufficient to support that COVID-19 vaccines do not create or cause variants of the virus that causes COVID-19,” the group asked in one request.
Another individual requested “All documents sufficient to support that the immunity conferred by COVID-19 vaccines does not contribute to virus evolution and the emergence of variants.”
The CDC has finally responded to both requests, stating that “no records responsive” to them were found during a search.
According to Aaron Siri, an attorney for ICAN, if the CDC is making declarative statements, the organization should have records to back them up.
Siri described the comments as “very troubling.” ” I thought the CDC was a data-driven organization, that they made their decisions based on the studies and the science and the data.”
During the epidemic, ICAN was one of the most frequent requesters of information from the CDC. Several requests have resulted in information. Others, though, have not.
In this scenario, Siri believes the CDC should take action to maintain public trust.
“Remove the language or provide the evidence,” he said. “There obviously are going to be instances where recommendations from the CDC might prove helpful or useful. And I think they do a disservice to everybody by hurting their own credibility by making statements that they either don’t have support or won’t produce the support for.”
Vaccines, according to scientists outside the CDC, can help prevent new variations.
“As more people get vaccinated, we expect virus circulation to decrease, which will then lead to fewer mutations,” the World Health Organization writes on its website.
However, many of the claims hinged on the vaccines’ ability to prevent infection from the CCP virus, which causes COVID-19. Vaccines are becoming increasingly ineffective, especially against the newest dominant strain, Omicron.
Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche, a virologist, is one of those who believes that new variations are caused by vaccines.
“All COVID-19 vaccines fail in blocking viral transmission, especially transmission of more infectious variants. This is a huge problem as viral transmission is now increasingly taking place among healthy people in general and vaccinees in particular (as their S-specific Abs do not sufficiently neutralize S variants),” Vanden Bossche says on his website. “The resulting suboptimal S-directed immune pressure serves as a breeding ground for even more infectious variants.”
