    Now that people are getting "vaccinated" with the substances that are authorized for "emergency use", and are considered to be "safe and effective", many have paid the price for getting the shots, while thousands more are facing a big disappointment--being infected with Covid, and even dying from it.

    CDC Studies 'Breakthrough' COVID Cases Among People Already Vaccinated

    "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is tracking these coronavirus infections that break through the vaccine's protection, told NPR on Thursday that the agency has so far received reports of about 5,800 breakthrough cases. No "unexpected patterns have been identified in case demographics or vaccine characteristics," the CDC says.

    Though these sorts of breakthrough infections have been reported among people of all ages, a little more than 40% so far have been among people age 60 or older, according to the agency, and 65% of such cases have been among women. About 29% of those experiencing breakthrough infections experienced no symptoms, but 7% were hospitalized and 74 people died."

    From the article:

    “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is tracking these coronavirus infections that break through the vaccine's protection, told NPR on Thursday that the agency has so far received reports of about 5,800 breakthrough cases. No "unexpected patterns have been identified in case demographics or vaccine characteristics," the CDC says.

    Though these sorts of breakthrough infections have been reported among people of all ages, a little more than 40% so far have been among people age 60 or older, according to the agency, and 65% of such cases have been among women. About 29% of those experiencing breakthrough infections experienced no symptoms, but 7% were hospitalized and 74 people died.”

    5,800 breakthrough infections with 74 dead is hardly a “massive disappointment.” In fact, since the vaccine is 80%-90% effective against preventing COVID and more than 90% effective at preventing severe infections in those who get sick, it would seem the vaccines work better than advertised.

    Those 5,800 (so far) would disagree with you.

    And 561,356 are wondering what version of of reality has the 5,800 who got sick from a breakthrough infection in pursuit of a cure being the worse option.

    74 vs 561,356? I’ll take door number one, thanks. 5,800 infections vs 31,231,869? Yup. For sure sticking with door number one.

    Those are just the numbers being acknowledged and reported. It ignores instances of people dying after getting the shots where any link between them is denied.

    Yes, you tend to find things that don’t happen consistently don’t get reported very frequently.

    How would anyone know of those cases if they aren’t reported?

    .....seems some people don't understand that 90% does not equal 100%

    Which are the sources you actually quoted in this thread you started, and which show that the vaccines have been highly successful in stopping infections, disease, and death.

    Got to love people that are terrible at logic and math.



    Given that TODAY there was 78k cases, and 1k deaths, 5800 cases, and 74 deaths over how long? It shows they work.

    Why shouldn't they be? Government isn't the only source to be trusted, unless you're in Saudi Arabia or some such place where questioning the government can be a death sentence.

    Thats the whole premise of the thread.

    Shock! that, for example, a 94% efficacious vaccine might be ineffective in 6% of cases.

    This is just crazy. In what insane country are people railing against the vaccine more so than the disease?

    America has so much potential for good if only it could free itself from the more of ignorance.
