A few takeaways: Among those states reporting data on “breakthrough” cases for the fully vaccinated, the case rate is well below 1 percent.
And there’s this: “The rates of death among fully vaccinated people with COVID-19 were even lower, effectively zero (0.00%) in all but two reporting states, Arkansas and Michigan[,] where they were 0.01%.”AdvertisementThat number again, “Effectively zero.”Are there caveats?
Fiddle with the numbers even a lot, and the reality is the same: The vast majority of cases are those who are not fully vaccinated.
In fact, Jim points out how Lollapalooza defied the headlines that predicted a super-spreader event from a mostly vaccinated crowd.
But for the vaccinated, the COVID future can be “effectively zero.” That’s a risk we should all be willing to accept.
