CTV News Calgary accidentally disparaged the infallible vaccine in an article published on Friday, leading to the piece being heavily edited. The article also provided insight from experts, to ensure that if you had any lingering doubts about the efficacy of vaccines, that you’re going against the opinions of medical professionals, and are thus wrong. The original headline, “Vaccinated now outnumber the unvaccinated in Calgary hospitals,” apparently left too much room for interpretation and perhaps granted some level of vindication for those who have decided to wait on getting a vaccine, or have decided for their own personal reasons that they won’t be receiving one. The headline has since been updated to “Vaccinated hospital patients outpace the unvaccinated, but it doesn’t mean the shots don’t work: experts.” CTV deleted the tweet with the original article title, which had amassed thousands of engagements. The article states: “Albertans with at least one shot took over more hospital beds than those without this week. But the raw numbers are incomplete, and a dive into the data shows being vaccinated may be more important now than ever before.”
