This will change zero minds. Facts and expertise mean nothing to the epic turds who are still "doing their research."

I'm convinced to spread the hinder. Even God is hinder-spreading.

It's a shame that a significant percentage of Americans don't give a fark if the vaccine is effective, or safe, or will end the pandemic.

Of those who were vaccinated, 53.4% of those hospitalized (whether COVID-positive or not) received Pfizer, 42.2% received Moderna, and 3.3% received Johnson & Johnson. Similar proportions were found in those who visited the ED or UCCs, with a highest difference of 1.7 percentage points.

Does that reflect the ratio of the population with each vaccine?

Anecdotal, but out of 13 COVID patients admitted yesterday. 12 were unvaccinated.

The vaccinated little old lady was on nasal cannula and calmly reading a book in bed. The unvaccinated people were all struggling.

When people ask these disingenuous questions--questions they could trivially google and answer for themselves inside of roughly 20 seconds--they're not asking because they want to know the answer. It's just some clever way to cast doubt on the science. "Why do I still have to wear a mask if I'm vaccinated?" "If you're vaccinated then why do you care what I do?" are in the same category.

These questions get asked, and answered, numerous times throughout the day. It's not that they don't know the answer...it's that they don't want to know.

Yes. The NYT were being assholes when they took science that said the vaccinated may, at some times, be as infectious as the unvaccinated and spun it into OMG THE VACCINATED ARE CONTAGIOUS.

The actual science showed that the vaccinated may have the same peak viral load as the unvaccinated but that the peak didn't last nearly as long. The actual science also didn't draw conclusions about contagiousness based on this one fact. Now we have further studies and further science.

But stay mad I guess.

Blame Simpson's paradox.

In Israel, vaccines were 90something percent effective in preventing severe cases in those 50 years old and up, and 90something percent effective in preventing severe cases in those under 50. But combine the two pools and suddenly vaccines were only 66% effective.

This is because there were a lot of young unvaxxed and a lot of old vaxxed, and when you look at everyone in one pool, you compare those two groups head to head.

This isn't true at all, especially in the early days of the vaccine.  There were early reports that the vaccines didn't do much against transmission.  I'm not sure why that alone would dissuade people from getting the vaccine (if anything, I feel like you should draw the opposite conclusion), but it was widely reported.

My girlfriend had it, and we were in, let's say, very close contact before we knew about it. I didn't get it. Also, my sister, who is 65 and has every comorbidity known to man, got it, was hospitalized, and didn't die.

We're all fully vaxed, so I imagine things would have been very different on both counts if we hadn't been.

I'll explain it...vaccines don't prevent infection, they teach your immune system how to more effectively fight the virus so you don't die.


I know how the vaccine works and that vaccines are not perfect. I'm asking "how" as in "what activities were vaccinated people doing when they think they became infected." Were they still very careful with covid precautions or did they let down their guard?

For example: "I got vaccinated and the following month I went to an indoor birthday party" or "I was fully vaccinated but I didn't wear a mask when I went to the grocery store."

You have both completely misinterpreted my question--which is my fault because I obviously did not word it clearly enough. I am not being disingenuous. I am vaccinated and encourage everyone to get them.

I am trying to reassure myself what I am doing will help me avoid a breakthrough case-- however rare they are.

Miss5280: I am trying to reassure myself what I am doing will help me avoid a breakthrough case


Continue to wear a mask in public (a properly fitted N95 if you want to protect yourself), wash your hands, keep your fingers out of your face, socially distance to the best extent you can, stay away from the unvaccinated.

Still not 100% effective, but each of those things further reduces the probability of transmission.
