For fully vaccinated people, the risk of still getting Covid-19 remains extremely low, a new study suggests
For fully vaccinated people, the risk of still getting Covid-19 -- described as 'breakthrough infections' -- remains extremely low, a new study out of New York suggests.
Among 417 employees at Rockefeller University who were fully vaccinated with either the Pfizer or Moderna shots, two of them or about .5%, had breakthrough infections later, according to the study published on Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine."We have characterized bona fide examples of vaccine breakthrough manifesting as clinical symptoms," the researchers wrote in their study."These observations in no way undermine the importance of the urgent efforts being taken at the federal and state levels to vaccinate the U.S. population. They also lend support to efforts to advance a new vaccine booster (as well as a pan-coronavirus vaccine) to provide increased protection against variants."One dose of Covid-19 vaccine thrown out for every 850 administered, CDC data showsThe researchers, from Rockefeller University, found that coronavirus variants with several differences from the original virus caused the breakthrough infections.A variant that infected one of the patients had the mutation E484K, which was first found in the B.1.351 variant originally identified in South Africa. E484K has been called an"escape mutant" because it has shown it might be able to escape some of the antibodies produced by coronavirus vaccines. One of the mutations found in both study participants' infections included D614G, which emerged early in the pandemic.Read MoreOne of the breakthrough infections was in a healthy 51-year-old woman who received her second dose of the Moderna vaccine on February 19. Nineteen days later, she tested positive for Covid-19 on March 10 after developing symptoms. The other breakthrough infection was in a healthy 65-year-old woman who received her second dose of the Pfizer vaccine on February 9. She later learned that her partner, who was unvaccinated, tested positive for Covid-19 on March 3. In the following days, the woman developed symptoms of her own. She tested positive for Covid-19 on March 17. US may soon reach a tipping point on Covid-19 vaccine demand. Here's why that's concerning More research is needed to determine whether similar findings related to breakthrough infections or variants would emerge among a larger group of participants from various parts of the United States.Experts say that some breakthrough cases of Covid-19 in people who have been fully vaccinated are expected, since no vaccine is 100% effective. Last week, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told CNN that the agency has so far received less than 6,000 reports of breakthrough coronavirus infections among more than 84 million people fully vaccinated nationwide. The CDC said breakthrough cases occurred in people of all ages who had been vaccinated, but a little more than 40% were in people 60 or older. They were also more prevalent in females and 29% were asymptomatic.

Same with the actual virus. 99% survival rate might I add. great news. If this isn't enough for people to get vaccinated, I don't know what it is As opposed to the odds of getting Covid-19 without a vaccine is low, the odds of those having symptoms are low, and the odds of them dying are low? Had Covid-19, apparently, no symptoms. I don't test positive, but have the antibodies.
I got it after being fully vaccinated but it was over in 48 hours.. I slept 36 of those 48 hours If after being vaccinated, the risk isn't low, what would be the point of being vaccinated? Even for the majority of ‘unvaccinated people’ don’t forget this folks!! And I am glad to wear a mask! No colds or flu last winter or yet!
As long as you continually get vaccine boosters for the rest of your life, as long as you're not exposed to other covid variants, as long as you socially distance and wear your mask, as long as you follow the narrative that everything is not OK until we say it is, as long as...

Each mutation needs an independent vaccine as long as the virus does not have a single form, so the vaccines are a hoax, people are still infected even after receiving all the doses. This is the reality.
Covid-19 Breakthrough Infections Can Happen, But Are Less Likely To Be Serious, CDC Chief SaysCovid-19 infections among those who are fully vaccinated are taking place, but statistically they’re very rare. It was already 97% unlikely to be serious tho.... What did you say
the risk of getting covid is very small, even if you are not vaccinated What was the efficacy rate for smallpox vaccine. We all have had the vaccine. Stopped it in its tracks. Tell that story. I don't trust it Cnn cant be trusted...and btw, this is old old news Snh...that's 2 too many😕 So it’s over if you’re vaccinated. Unless your standard is 0% risk in which case you will soon be in an institution as you realize the risks you take on in everything you do.
No shit. That’s because there’s not a variant that can resist it yet, I can guess there will be one by the summer. And no I won’t risk blood clots so I won’t get that vaccine 😁 But be sure to wear your mask, stay indoors, socially distant...

Good to hear but was this over an extended period? Don't fear the innoculum weaklings You will cry like Ted Nugent. Then take off the fucking masks So how vaccines work. Got it. Marvelous “journalism”. It is a pity. What a lie lol CNN I have zero fear of this scamdemic and zero plans to take the poison jab
duh, a vaccine is never 100% effective This would highly depend on which brand if vaccines one is getting...this is too much of a generalization.. And if there was a study that was contrary to that, wud u report it, & do so w/o a sneer? And if there was a study that was contrary to that, wud Twitter allow for u to tweet about it? Would govt take off pressure they put on mainstream & social media to censor?🤨 Censorship
US Covid-19 guidance: Fully vaccinated people do not need masks outsideFully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a face mask outdoors, except in crowded settings. Usa sheeple People wear masks to protect others. If you have been fully vaccinated it doesn't mean you can't catch Covid, it's means you are better able to fight the condition. People who aren't vaccinated can still catch it from someone who has been. Also there are new variants to consider.
If people believe this was Racist they should be very angry at the prosecutors for not including “hate crime” as one of the charges because this just proves that Chauvin was a bad police officer and this could’ve happened to a white person just as well ! Why is Biden still wearing two mask? Shove that bogus study up your ass!
