CDC Director Tests Positive for Covid-19 and Has ‘Mild Symptoms,’ Despite Being ‘Up-to-Date’ on Boosters

The Director for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Rochelle Walensky has tested positive for Covid-19, according to a statement released on Saturday. The news comes after she reportedly received her bivalent Covid ‘boosters’ and the same week that the CDC added the mRNA shots to its Childhood Vaccination Schedule.

“Last night, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky tested positive for COVID-19,” the release stated. “She is up to date with her vaccines. Dr. Walensky is experiencing mild symptoms. Consistent with CDC guidelines, she is isolating at home and will participate in her planned meetings virtually. CDC senior staff and close contacts have been informed of her positive test and are taking appropriate action to motitor their health.”

The public announcement conveniently serves as an advertisement for the Pfizer vaccines, and a ‘reminder’ that Americans should get the jabs and follow CDC guidelines. The demand for the Covid ‘boosters’ has fallen off amid near-universal natural immunity from prior infection and the public health community’s numerous false assertions about the vaccines.

In March 2021, Walensky claimed that vaccinated people don’t carry the COVID virus, which turned out to be false.

“Our data from the CDC today suggest that vaccinated people do not carry the virus,” she said. The CDC Director turned out to be entirely wrong.

But in August 2021, Walensky made the admission to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that the Covid shots don’t prevent infection or transmission.

Many are reading the CDC’s announcement that Walensky has Covid again despite the most recent ‘booster’ as a tacit admission of failure and are thus treating it with mockery and scorn.

“Breaking: 5x vaxxed CDC director tested positive for Covid,” Dr. Eli David tweeted with a clown emoji.

“Walensky gets Covid despite the mouse booster. Exactly one month apart..,” IT Guy pointed out.

“September 22nd: CDC director Rochelle Walensky gets updated bivalent booster that “provides added protection against COVID-19 and the Omicron variant” October 22nd: CDC director Rochelle Walensky tests positive for COVID-19,” Ian Miller said.


“Safe and effective strikes again!” Robby Starbuck said.

Walensky’s reportedly positive Covid test comes the same week as the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) unanimously voting to add Covid-19 shots to its childhood vaccination schedule.

As of late September, only 4 percent of adults were “up to date” on their Covid boosters more than a month into their rollout.
