FACT CHECK: Joe Biden Falsely Claims Vaccinated People Can't Spread COVID-19



This week Joe Biden claimed that vaccinated people cannot spread the COVID-19 virus to others. This is vaccine misinformation.

Joe Biden spread fake news about the COVID-19 vaccines this week during an interview with WHIO-TV when he falsely claimed that vaccinated people “do not spread” coronavirus to others.

“This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. Not the vaccinated, the unvaccinated. That’s the problem. Everybody talks about freedom about not to have a shot or have a test,” Biden said. “Well guess what? How about patriotism? How about you make sure you’re vaccinated, so you do not spread the disease to anybody else? What about that? What’s the big deal?”

Biden’s false assertions that the COVID-19 vaccines somehow prevent the transmission of the virus run contradictory to his own administration’s Center for Disease Control (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky, who admitted in October that the injections do not “prevent transmission.”

Some scientists have suggested that the COVID-19 vaccines will greatly reduce one’s likelihood of contracting COVID-19, and most claim that the vaccines reduce the severity of symptoms.

However, no scientists have agreed with Biden’s false and misleading statement after the vaccines became better understood.

Weeks prior to Walesnky’s admission, the CDC had quietly changed the definition of vaccine on their official website, as more and more vaccinated Americans continued to be infected COVID-19.

Now, reported deaths attributed to the virus in the year 2021 have surpassed the death counts reported in 2020, despite Biden’s promise to end the pandemic.

Anthony Fauci, the highly unpopular Biden administration medical advisor, made an appearance on CNN this week, in which he claimed that COVID-19 has become “a much more formidable virus” since hundreds of millions of Americans were injected with COVID-19 vaccines and “boosters.”

Adding to the body evidence suggesting the vaccines are not the silver bullet Biden falsely claimed them to be, a new study from Columbia University found that the newly discovered Omicron variant is “markedly resistant” to vaccines and boosters.

“A striking feature of this variant is the large number of spike mutations that pose a threat to the efficacy of current COVID-19 vaccines and antibody therapies,” read the study – authored by more than 20 scientists at Columbia and the University of Hong Kong.

In fact, Biden’s CDC affirmed this week that only 20% of COVID-19 cases caused by the Omicron variant identified in the U.S. were in people who are unvaccinated.

An overwhelming majority of Americans infected with the virus had been “fully vaccinated,” with one third of them having received a booster injection, National File reported on Monday.
