        Soon the vaccinated will be walking around with no masks, no lock downs, no curfews and no distancing. The virus will still be around. Let’s hope you feel the same if you catch it.

    Published Yesterday - by the way did you know they’re advising persons get a booster shot of the vaccine each year ...try boost your immune system that’s all

    When Sarah McCauley, a hospital nurse from Bethlehem, Pa., tested positive for Covid-19 in late March, she was flabbergasted. Just two months before, she had received her second shot of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine.

    “I thought, ‘There’s no way this can be happening,’” Ms. McCauley, 35 years old, said. “We’ve been living with this disease for over a year, and I’ve been so careful, I got vaccinated. My jaw just dropped.”

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified a small cohort of approximately 5,800 cases of Covid-19 infection among more than 66 million Americans who have completed a full course of vaccination.

    These so-called breakthrough cases, which are defined as positive Covid-19 test results received at least two weeks after patients receive their final vaccine dose, represent 0.008% of the fully vaccinated population.

    Officials said such cases are in line with expectations because the approved vaccines in the U.S. are highly effective but not 100% foolproof. They are a reminder that even vaccinated people are at risk and should continue to take precautions such as masking and social distancing in many circumstances.

    Public-health officials are studying whether certain mutations of the coronavirus are more resistant to vaccine-based immunity.

    “You will always see some breakthrough infections no matter the efficacy of your vaccine,” Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious-disease official, said in an interview.

    “This is really what we see each season with the influenza vaccine.”

    Of the breakthrough cases identified by the CDC, more than 40% occurred in people older than 60, while 65% of the cases were in female patients, according to Tom Clark, leader of the vaccine evaluation team at the federal agency. The CDC found that 29% of breakthrough infections were asymptomatic and 7% of patients experiencing a breakthrough infection were hospitalized.

    So far, 74 people have died after experiencing breakthrough infections.

    The agency is expected to publish some of these findings next week.

      What's your point?
      The CDC announced that .008% of vaccinated persons were able to catch and transmit the virus.
      Because you seem to be so concerned about the ineffectiveness of the vaccine and the ability to still catch and transmit after receiving it, I'll break the numbers down for you, like I would for a 5 year old.
      Out of every 100,000 persons vaccinated, 8 can catch and transmit the virus.
      So please stop reading headlines and posting nonsense!
      Try posting some facts directly from the experts, not the media who is all about fear and headlines!

    What about those who attended the sea cow's bay funeral ???

    So no one was infected with Covid19 at the big Sea Cows Bay funeral? Why is this hard to believe? What is the truth about that? Was the young man actually Covid19 Positive or are the BVI people so healthy that no one caught this dreaded virus, in the close environment of a funeral. Almost to good to believe.
