A grim warning from Israel: Vaccination blunts, but does not defeat Delta

His message was meant for his fellow Israelis, but it is a warning to the world. Israel has among the world’s highest levels of vaccination for COVID-19, with 78% of those 12 and older fully vaccinated, the vast majority with the Pfizer vaccine. Yet the country is now logging one of the world’s highest infection rates, with nearly 650 new cases daily per million people. More than half are in fully vaccinated people, underscoring the extraordinary transmissibility of the Delta variant and stoking concerns that the benefits of vaccination ebb over time.

What is clear is that “breakthrough” cases are not the rare events the term implies. As of 15 August, 514 Israelis were hospitalized with severe or critical COVID-19, a 31% increase from just 4 days earlier. Of the 514, 59% were fully vaccinated. Of the vaccinated, 87% were 60 or older. “There are so many breakthrough infections that they dominate and most of the hospitalized patients are actually vaccinated,” says Uri Shalit, a bioinformatician at the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion) who has consulted on COVID-19 for the government. “One of the big stories from Israel [is]: ‘Vaccines work, but not well enough.’”

To understand what is taking place, one of the founders of mRNA, Dr. Malone said this today on Twitter.

To understand what is a “LEAKY” vaccine, and its implications, this is a PBS article that describes what took place with a “leaky” vaccine in 2015.

In the event, the article is taken down from PBS, this is a copy of the article in a PDF format.

For a more in-depth study, you can read this article, “Imperfect Vaccination Can Enhance the Transmission of Highly Virulent Pathogens“.

In the event, that the article from National Center for Biotechnology information is taken down, you can read a PDF version of Imperfect Vaccination Can Enhance the Transmission of Highly Virulent Pathogens.

  1. There are so many things going on in my mind about this I don’t even know where to begin but one thing I will say is they need to stop forcing people to get these jabs until they know more about them. Too many have lost their lives just from the jab alone but no one is talking about that.

  2. “…Too many have lost their lives just from the jab alone.”
    That’s a very serious charge, and I have seen no persuasive documented evidence of the claim: Many may make the claim, but if unsubstantiated, it’s a rumor or gossip, not fact. Please provide documentary evidence if making such a claim.
    I certainly do not know of anyone dying from the mRNA vaccines *alone*; I do know of several — family members of personal friends — who have died of COVID-19. And while the vaccines don’t provide perfect/complete protection against infection — no one claims they do — it’s also true that the other vaccines (e.g. the polio vaccines) also do not provide perfect or complete protection. And when introduced, rumors swirled all about the polio vaccines as well. Many lives were saved by those vaccines – it’s good that vaccine fear did not dominate!
