It’s getting more difficult to scientifically blame the unvaccinated for all of the Covid-19 ills hitting the U.S. and other countries.
According to a new analysis by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), most of the people who got Covid-19, as well as almost all of those who were hospitalized, had been fully vaccinated.
The report contradicts multiple false reports that have claimed the vaccines are “100% effective” in preventing hospitalization. It also contradicts false reports that have implied vaccinated people are not spreading Covid-19. According to CDC, the fully vaccinated are showing just as high of a “viral load” as unvaccinated people who get infected.
CDC published new data on the topic in its weekly report. It says that most of the identified cases of Covid-19 in a Barnstable County, Massachusetts, town, in July (74%) were among fully vaccinated people. Most, but not all, had the Delta variant.
Additionally, four of five hospitalized patients were fully vaccinated. Only one was not fully vaccinated.
