Merriam-Webster Admits Vaccine Definition Changed to Accommodate mRNA Injections

I thought this was a conspiracy theory?


Publisher Merriam-Webster, which is particularly well-known for its dictionaries, has declared “vaccine” as its word of the year, noting how the medical solution has become a political argument and source of division.

In a publication on Monday, Merriam-Webster said that the number of people looking up the word “vaccine” had increased 1,048% in 2021, compared to 2019 as the publishing group declared it as the word of the year.

The American firm also noted that the development of a new type of vaccine, mRNA jabs, prompted the company to change its definition of the word in May. The main description now reads: “a preparation that is administered (as by injection) to stimulate the body’s immune response against a specific infectious agent or disease.” Further text then describes conventional vaccine technology and the mRNA vaccines.

The publisher’s 2020 word of the year was “pandemic,” as the Covid-19 pandemic saw countries around the globe sent into lockdown in an effort to prevent its spread.

It looks like it was earlier than May. Somewhere between January 18 and January 26.

It’s not just the change in the mRNA definition.

They also need to change the definition to define a vaccine as a prophylaxis that is supposed to reduce symptoms. Previously, it was understood that a vaccine makes you immune, preventing you from getting infected with the disease and obviously from transmitting it, and the coronavirus vaccines do not do that.

The whole discussion is just dumb.
