The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) once again brings alarming data that contradicts those who put a lot of faith in the COVID-19 vaccines. While the manufacturers of the drugs admitted that there’s no such thing as one hundred percent efficiency, new info revealed for CNN brings further proof.
One hundred ninety-eight million vaccine doses for COVID-19 were administered in the US, according to data brought by Bloomberg. Across the world, over 800 million shots were given for preventing infection with the coronavirus. Even so, a significant number of people that received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine still got infected.
COVID-19 infects 5,800 vaccinated people
The second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine is needed several weeks after somebody gets the first one. Although they were injected with both doses, 5,800 people still got infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, according to the CDC (Centers of Disease Control and Prevention). The public health agency wrote to CNN in an email:
So far, about 5,800 breakthrough cases have been reported to CDC. To date, no unexpected patterns have been identified in case demographics or vaccine characteristics.
However, such cases are expected due to the fact that as 10s of millions of people receive COVID-19 jabs, so will the number of vaccinated people still affected by the coronavirus will rise.
Data shows that the Pfizer vaccine was 91% effective in preventing COVID symptoms in the US, meaning a decrease from the 95% effectiveness shown during the clinical trials. The vaccine developed by Moderna was only 90% effective, while the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was even less effective: 72%.
