Though it is evident vaccination still provides powerful protection against the virus, there’s growing concern that vaccinated people may be more vulnerable to serious illness than previously thought
Chou @Isabella and co... it seems experts are backtracking on their claim that vaccines offer 99% protection agwinst severe illness.
Bel awwal they said it's 99%, ba3den sarit 75%, halla2 sarit "we're not really sure".
Didn't I tell you the 1.99% was inaccurate? Keep drinking the Kool Aid inteh w @SoFP1. Sa77a
Depends on each country
Risk of hospitalization dropped from 100% to 90-96% with Delta. Still very very good news.
Only problem that antibodies wane with vaccination after 6 months hence why crucial to get a 3rd booster shot.
Israel data showing 3rd dose booster shot provides protection against delta up to 96% efficacy after 16 days of 3rd dose.
Also, 2 dose vaccination showing that viral load decreases quickly after 6th day of infection, meaning that it is better to get vaxxed in order to stop the virus replicating further and producing new variants. This is why new variants are popping up in low vaxxed countries like South Africa and in South America.
So my advice, get vaxxed and keep masked until no new variants pop up again and we can control the spread.
