The Great Manipulation
The CDC caused an uproar in early September 2021, after it changed its definitions of “vaccination” and “vaccine.”

VACCINATION: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.
The CDC Definitions of Vaccine and Vaccination since September 1, 2021:

VACCINATION: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.
