I'd say that is SPOT on... except for a couple tiny errors.Correct, and the shots are working as they were supposed to work...reduce symptoms and deaths. Thing is though, they sold the concept of the shots that they would stop the virus and that you wouldn’t get the virus or spread the virus if you got the shots. The point of the article is to show that all that was more lies from the CDC and the media. The virus is spreading from vaccinated people, probably even more so than unvaccinated because they were told they couldn’t spread the virus if vaccinated. We will be dealing with this for years and years.
When the vaccine was tested, we DID expect 95% immunity and near 100% prevention of severe disease. But that was based on the 100,000 or so tested subjects followed for the 3 to 4 months before release to general public. So the efficacy stated earlier was not a lie...
We did not know (but did suspect) the efficacy would wane over time from initial injection. Which has proven to be true. We also did not know if it would be effective against future mutations of the virus. The vaccine (and success) is based off the Alpha strain.
Then Delta came out. Sure enough, the vaccine is less effective (much less effective... most reasonable guesstimate puts efficacy between 40 and 80% prevention of the disease).
Fortunately, the vaccine against the Alpha variant is proving to SIGNIFICANTLY reduce severe disease (defined as requiring hospitalization... or worse) against Delta. I don't really keep up with the rest of the US... mostly just Mississippi... but we have about 14,000 positive tests (probably 3x that many more infected, but not sick enough to bother testing) in the past couple weeks.
Of those sick enough to require hospitalization, 90% are unvaccinated.
At this very moment, Pfizer is working on a booster designed specifically for Delta. I don't expect it to be available for another half year, though. Too late if the current trend continues.
