Americans who step up to take the Coronavirus mRNA vaccinations will receive Covid-19 vaccination cards.

The Department of Defense (DoD) released images of the vaccination cards and vaccination kits on Wednesday, reports KRON4 news

The cards, issued by the CDC, will be included in vaccination kits sent out by President Donald Trump's Operation Warp Speed.

Operation Warp Speed is coordinating with military planners and experts at the CDC to deliver vaccines to 300 million Americans.

"Everyone will be issued a written card that they can put in their wallet that will tell them what they had and when their next dose is due," said Dr. Kelly Moore, associate director of the Immunization Action Coalition.

"For most COVID-19 vaccine products, two doses of vaccine, separated by 21 or 28 days, will be needed," according to the CDC's COVID-19 Vaccination Program Interim Playbook. "Because different COVID-19 vaccine products will not be interchangeable, a vaccine recipient’s second dose must be from the same manufacturer as their first dose."

Additionally, "vaccination clinics will report to their state immunization registries which vaccine was given so that third parties can verify one's vaccination status regardless of what their card says (or if they've lost it)."

"Patients" will be asked to "volunteer" their phone numbers so jurisdictions can contact them via "robocalls" or text messages to remind them of their second dose due date.

According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Covid-19 vaccine will not prevent infection, it will only lessen symptoms. People who are vaccinated can still spread the virus.

"The primary endpoint is to prevent clinical disease, to prevent symptomatic disease, not necessarily to prevent infection. The primary thing you want to do is, if people get infected, prevent them from getting sick. And if you prevent them from getting sick you will ultimately prevent them from getting seriously ill, so that's what we want to do."

Common symptoms of Covid-19 are similar to the seasonal flu: a fever, cough, fatigue, headaches, shortness of breath, and muscle aches.

Airports nationwide saw a spike in travel ahead of Thanksgiving, despite warnings from the Centers for Disease Control not to travel this holiday season.

Security screenings at U.S. airports surpassed 2 million over the weekend, as travelers chose to ignore the CDC's warnings to avoid traveling over the holiday.

On Saturday, just under 1 million people flew -- the highest number of travelers since March, but less than half of last year's number, MSN reports.

At Logan Airport, vending machines dispensed disposable masks, latex gloves and infrared thermometers.

"We did a COVID test. We turned out negative. We're bringing hand sanitizers with the wipes. We are disinfecting everything," said Estefania Krause, according to MSN News.

Other travelers say the airlines are taking precautions, so they are living their lives.

"All the airlines seem to be doing the good precautions, so we're trying to play it safe. Just live our lives, as well," said traveler Jon Love.

The Centers for Disease Control says hospitals counted over 130,000 deaths from heart attacks, influenza and bacterial pneumonia as Covid-19 deaths.

Over 84% of all Covid-19 deaths are in Democratic states, according to the CDC.

Hospital systems are accused of counting patients who died from serious pre-existing conditions as Covid-19 deaths in order to receive more money from the government for Covid-related deaths.

The CDC updated their death counts to reveal that Covid-19 is rarely the actual cause of Covid-19 deaths.

According to the CDC, 87,000 patients died from bacterial pneumonia and influenza. Another 17,000 died from chronic respiratory diseases, and another 26,000 died from adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) caused by bacteria.

Additionally, 44,000 patients died from hypertension not related to Covid. Yet those patients were also counted among Covid deaths.

According to One America News (OAN), hospitals counted 51,000 patients who died from heart attacks as Covid-19 related deaths.

Meanwhile, the number of patients who usually die from heart attacks in hospitals dropped considerably this year when compared to the same time period last year.

Also decreasing dramatically are deaths caused by influenza. Those deaths are being counted as Covid-19 deaths.

An update by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) suggests wearing masks or face coverings increases your risk of contracting Covid-19.

According to an update on the CDC website, in the 14 days before illness onset, 85% of case-patients and 88% of control-participants reported often or always using cloth face coverings or other mask types when in public.

In the 14 days before illness onset, 71% of case-patients and 74% of control-participants reported ALWAYS using cloth face coverings or other mask types when in public.

Only 12% of control-participants reported never wearing a mask before Covid-19 illness onset.

All disposable masks are "single use" only and should be discarded after 2 hours because the moisture from your breath renders masks ineffective.

The latest statistics confirm what U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams said about face masks in February.

Dr. Adams previously said the public should not wear masks to protect against the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus disease because masks offered little protection against a virus.

"Seriously people — STOP BUYING MASKS!" Adams tweeted on Feb. 29.

The WHO, the CDC and NIH's Dr. Anthony Fauci also strongly discouraged wearing masks as not useful for the public.

Dr. Adams changed his tune months later. He encouraged Americans to wear a mask to stop the spread of the coronavirus — insisting the face coverings don't infringe on Americans' "freedom".

Adams was not wearing a mask in August when he and another man were cited for trespassing in a park in Hawaii that was closed.

Adams, 46, was with his personal assistant, Dennis Anderson-Villaluz, a 37-year-old dietician with the U.S. Health Dept. The two men were "taking pictures" inside the rural park.

People who are most at risk for contracting Covid-19 include those with preexisting conditions such as cardiac problems, hypertension, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), immunodeficiency (HIV), psychiatric condition, diabetes, or obesity.

There are other risks associated with prolonged use of face masks by the public.

One doctor said he expects to see a huge spike in throat and lung cancers from breathing in the "resins" and other chemicals that coat face masks.

Consult an attorney if you are sickened by Covid-19 after wearing a mask or if you are diagnosed with throat or lung cancer.

You will need a diagnosis of a mask-related disorder in order to collect damages in a lawsuit.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said it erroneously published guidance that indicated COVID-19 was "airborne."

The CDC in Atlanta claimed it originally published the guidance "in error", following "a pressure campaign" from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Health organizations absurdly claimed the virus can linger in the air for hours and travel 26 feet.

The new CDC update confirms the virus doesn't linger in a viral cloud that infects people who walk through it.

On Monday, the CDC updated its website to reflect that the "virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person" in close contact with each other.

The CDC's stunning reversal helps explain why a so-called "deadly" virus doesn't sicken a majority of people who are infected.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has asked states to prepare for massive distributions of Covid-19 vaccines by early November.

Public health officials want the most vulnerable high-risk groups to get the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as late October or early November.

Officials agree that health agencies in all 50 states should "urgently" prepare for a complex effort to distribute the vaccines to "hundreds of millions" of Americans - despite the fact that the death rate is very low.

The CDC sent guidance to every state on the same day President Trump told the Republican National Convention that a vaccine might be ready before the end of the year.

Over a dozen companies have accelerated clinical trials in a race to get their vaccines to market first. The usual safeguards have been waived in order to get the vaccines to market in a matter of months.

The FDA normally requires three years of clinical trials before a vaccine goes to market.

The vaccine contains RNA (Ribonucleic acid) that are designed to alter the body's host cells to produce antibodies against the coronavirus.

Unlike normal vaccines, which contain DNA fragments of dead virus to produce antibodies, RNA vaccines are genetically engineered messenger RNA that contain specific directions to alter human DNA and tell it to create proteins, which in turn stimulates the cells to make antibodies.

RNA vaccines don't require dead pathogens to make antibodies. The human host's own genetic code is theoretically supposed to be altered (changed) by the RNA vaccine. RNA vaccines have been used on animals in veterinary medicine for years.

No RNA vaccines have ever been approved for human use.

Dr. Anthony Fauci and and Dr. Stephen Hahn, who heads the Food and Drug Administration, have said in interviews that RNA vaccines should be made readily available for certain groups, i.e. Black people, the elderly over 65, and "those incarcerated", before clinical trials have been completed.

Doctors and nurses on the frontlines will get the vaccines first, according to Fauci.

With so few Black people willing to step up and volunteer to be guinea pigs, the CDC's guidance acknowledged that its distribution plan is "hypothetical".

Dr. Saskia Popescu, an infection prevention epidemiologist based in Arizona, is concerned that the vaccine is highly politicized.

"It's hard not to see this as a push for a pre-election vaccine," he said.

Further complicating the vaccination effort is the cold storage requirement and the fact that two doses will need to be given 2 weeks apart.

"How are you going to make sure people get both [doses]?" said Dr. Cedric Dark, an emergency medicine physician at Baylor College of Medicine in Texas.

President Donald Trump has blocked all evictions through the end of the year. Trump’s executive order gives the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) leeway to stop evictions by labeling evictions a health risk.

The order helps people who fell behind on their rent because their income was impacted by the coronavirus.

Any landlord who violates the order will face stiff fines at a minimum of $100,000.

Under the executive order, the CDC can use its power as the country's health authority to block all evictions from taking place because of the risk of newly homeless people spreading the virus.

"I want to make it unmistakably clear that I'm protecting people from evictions," Trump said in a statement on Tuesday.

Trump took action after House Democrats and the White House failed to deliver a new stimulus package.

The order left landlords and home builders angry and threatening to file federal lawsuits as soon as the moratorium takes effect.

Many landlords have already begun filing evictions around the country.

White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern told reporters on Tuesday that the president's executive order signed Tuesday will help millions of Americans stay in their homes.

"Today's announcement means that people struggling to pay rent due to the coronavirus will not have to worry about being evicted and risk further spreading, spreading of, or exposure to the disease due to economic hardship," he said. "The administration has also made funds available to alleviate any economic impact to tenants, landlords, and property owners."

Twitter.com removed a viral post retweeted by President Donald Trump over the weekend that showed the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) dramatically revised the Covid-19 death toll to just over 9,000 cases.

In a weekly update on its website on Aug. 26, the Atlanta-based agency noted only 6% of Covid-19 deaths were due to Covid-19 alone. 94% of deaths had underlying medical conditions. The majority of the deaths were people over age 65.

Under Table 3: "Provisional Death Counts for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)", the CDC lists conditions contributing to Covid-19 deaths in death certificates.

Of the deaths related to Covid-19, only 6% listed Covid-19 alone. 94% had other causes of death, such as cardiac arrest, respiratory failure, gunshot wounds or car accidents.

All of the cases were counted as Covid-19-related deaths bringing the death toll in the U.S. to over 180,000. If only Covid-19 was listed on the death certificates, the death toll would be just over 9,000 -- far less than deaths caused by the common flu.

President Trump retweeted the viral post that trended under the hashtag #only6%.

Anyone who clicked the link saw the message: "This Tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter Rules."

Twitter decided the post violated its rules because it didn't fully explain: "For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death."

Twitter was annoyed that users would see the viral post and assume that only 6% of those who died from Covid-19 didn't have any preexisting conditions -- even though that is basically what the CDC stated based on the death certificates.

The death toll from Covid-19 has plunged to record lows, particularly in the East. For example, Maine and New York City counted no new Covid-19 deaths in the past two weeks.

The CDC recommends hand washing and social distancing to prevent spread of the flu-like coronavirus.

All Gas No Brakes host Andrew Callaghan went down to Florida to get comments and reactions to Covid-19 from young Black people on vacation/quarantine.

The footage shows young people denying the coronavirus exists, while others say the virus was developed by the United States for population control. Callaghan posted the footage to Instagram on Thursday.

Young Black people all over the country have resumed their lives as if there is no pandemic.

Nightclubs in Atlanta and Miami are packed, as young people ignore the CDC's advice to wear masks and practice social distancing. Watch the video below to see why the guideline recommendations are falling on deaf ears.

Center for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield says suicides and drug overdoses have surpassed the death rate for COVID-19 among young people in America.

Redfield said lockdowns and lack of public schooling negatively impacts mental health among young people.

"We're seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID," Redfield testified in a Buck Institute Webinar. "We're seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID."

About 146,000 people have died from COVID or COVID-related causes, according to CDC data.

Federal data recorded 48,000 deaths from suicide and at least 71,000 deaths from drug overdoses in 2018.

The Chicago Sun-Times reviewed specifically black populations. In Cook County, Illinois, the number of suicide deaths among Black people is already higher than for all of 2019.

According to the American Medical Association, there has been a 40% increase in suicides and drug overdoses in Colorado in 2020. The number of calls to suicide hotlines have increased 48 percent.

Between March 15 and April 29, as many people committed suicide in Queens, New York than did between January 1 and April 29 the year prior.

Hopelessness and despair amid job uncertainty and the ongoing lockdowns have impacted mental health among children, teenagers and young adults in this country.

The CDC has pushed for children to return to schools and adults to return to work as the deaths from COVID-19 have reached a new low.

Just 300+ people died from COVID in the U.S. last week, according to the CDC.

Redfield said he's "absolutely comfortable" with his grandchildren returning to school in the fall.

40 million jobs have been lost to the economic shutdown caused by the pandemic, compared to 2.6 million jobs lost in all of 2008 when the SARS/H1N1 virus arrived in the U.S.
