WASHINGTON D.C. – Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has publicly conceded that the agency had provided completely inaccurate information regarding its COVID-19 vaccine safety monitoring to the public.

In a letter to Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) dated September 2 – that was later revealed to the public on September 12 – Dr. Walensky admitted that Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR) analysis was not performed by the CDC on adverse reactions to various COVID vaccines submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) throughout the majority of 2021.

This runs contrary to claims that the agency made in several documents in February 2021, when they said that they had already started RPP analysis.

“CDC performed PRR analysis between March 25, 2022 through July 31, 2022,” Walensky said. “CDC also recently addressed a previous statement made to The Epoch Times to clarify PRR were not run between February 26, 2021, to September 30, 2021.”

However, it was later revealed that the CDC did not conduct the promised PRR analysis, claiming in July that their reasoning for not doing so was that it was beyond its responsibility. However, when questioned by The Epoch Times in July, CDC official Dr. John Su contradicted this claim, stating that the agency had indeed begun performing PRRs in February 2021 and continues to do so; however, the CDC would later state that Dr. Su was mistaken.

“CDC performed PRRs from March 25, 2022 through July 31, 2022,” a spokeswoman stated in August, and that statement was later backed up by Dr. Walensky’s letter to Senator Johnson, with the CDC chief admitting that she knew that her agency had purposely given out information proven to be false.

However, Senator Johnson noted in response to Walensky that she neglected to give any explanation for why the CDC had provided falsehoods in regards to its promised PRR analysis.

“Your letter lacked any justification for why CDC performed PRRs during certain periods and not others,” Johnson replied. “You also provided no explanation as to why Dr. Su’s assertion…completely contradicts the CDC’s [initial] response…as well as your September 6, 2022, response to me.”

Johnson then went on to insist upon an explanation for the false information, as well as why the CDC failed to perform the promised PRRs, saying that the “overall lack of transparency is unacceptable particularly in light of CDC’s inconsistent statements on this matter.”
