Medical experts slammed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention after the agency admitted to withholding a significant amount of data collected on COVID-19 vaccines from the public.

The CDC refused to publish “large portions” of data gathered on COVID-19 vaccines over concerns that it would be “misinterpreted,” according to The New York Times. CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund said that the fear of misrepresentation, along with several other factors, led the government health agency to withhold the information.

“The CDC’s response when questioned about their withholding of Covid data and lack of transparency is essentially ‘we don’t trust you to be able to understand the truth,’” radiologist and Fox News contributor Nicole Saphier tweeted. “The condescension is palpable. The wheels are finally coming off.”

“People who have blindly trusted the CDC the last 2 years are about to have their world turned upside down as the lack of transparency and manipulation of data become undeniably evident,” she added.

University of California professor Vinay Prasad posted: “All I know is: if you read the studies they are publishing, the reason they aren’t sharing this data is absolutely not that they want to get the analysis right.”

Responding to Prasad, Johns Hopkins’ Marty Makary added: “We’ve been saying this for over a year, but when the NYT discovers what’s happening, then some start to pay attention.”
