“As we have shown, study after study, vaccination works,” she added.
However, the studies which analyzed data from 600,000 Americans between April 4th and July 17th suggest that the effectiveness of the vaccines may have dropped as the Delta variant became dominant.
One explanation could be waning immunity.
The second is that the variant is better at evading the immune system. It also could be some combination of the two factors.
Those who were unvaccinated were about 4.5 times more likely to contract the virus, more than 10 times more likely to be hospitalized with the virus, and 11 times more likely to die from the disease.
A previous CDC study based on data from just 43,127 COVID cases in Los Angeles County between May and July found that unvaccinated people were more likely to contract COVID-19 and 29 times more likely to be hospitalized with the virus.
