Why is US Senator Diane Feinstein hiding her medical history w.r.t. shingles?
Senator Feinstein's office would not disclose her shingles and/or COVID vaccine status. Why not? How does keeping it secret protect the public?
Senator Feinstein is likely heavily vaccinated.
The COVID vaccine re-activates shingles with a vengeance.
Senator Feinstein doesn’t want you to make that connection because it would mean she would look bad for having pushed the COVID shots.
But I’d like to know how keeping her history secret benefits the public.
She pushed the vaccines. Over and over. And over.
She even wanted to require vaccination or COVID tests for air travel.
We all know now how ludicrous such a suggestion was.
Not only do we know now that the COVID vaccines make you more likely to get COVID, they also re-activate the varicella zoster virus (VZV) that causes shingles and chickenpox and they cause it to return with a vengeance.
I hear these “got vaxxed, got shingles” stories on a regular basis. It’s so common, it’s even in the peer-reviewed scientific literature: Real-world evidence from over one million COVID-19 vaccinations is consistent with reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus.
So it seems highly likely that Feinstein was heavily COVID vaccinated and that even a shingles vaccine couldn’t protect her from the COVID vaccine.
I’m guessing that she doesn’t want you to know she had a shingles vaccine and how many COVID vaccines she got and when she got them because she doesn’t want you to get further confirmation of the link between the vaccines and shingles reactivation. Because the more examples like this come out, the less likely people are to get the COVID vaccine.
She doesn’t want to create vaccine hesitancy so she remains silent, just like everyone else.
Singles can be fatal for the elderly
Shingles is fatal in 1 in 1,000 cases for those over 70.
Presumably, Senator Feinstein wanted to save lives when she tried to require vaccination and testing to board a flight.
But now, when the science shows the opposite, she’s not willing to disclose her status to add to the body of knowledge we have.
Here’s why she can’t say anything: because all answers make her look bad
If she got the shingles vax, it would show it doesn’t work.
If she didn’t get the shingles vax, why didn’t she? Does she know something?
If she didn’t get the COVID vax, why didn’t she? She told everyone else to!!
If she did get the COVID vax, then that would explain her shingles with a vengeance diagnosis. Why not reveal when she got the shots?
Senator Feinstein is setting a terrible example for Americans.
There is no reason she can’t tell us her vax status and save lives.
You can die from shingles. How does remaining silent save lives?
If she dies, does she still want to keep her COVID vax records a secret?
In short, protecting the vaccine and her reputation is much more important than letting people know the truth and saving lives.
And that’s just the way it goes.
