My SIL is an RN in Kettering Ohio. He and a thousand peers spent yesterday protesting a vaccine mandate scheduled for December. 

I got vaccinated as soon as I could but I'm not in favor of mandating stuff for adults "own good". Let people manage their own risk.

FDA: Only 0.001% of 9M fully vaccinated Filipinos had breakthrough infections

By CNN Philippines Staff

Published Aug 13, 2021 4:18:17 PM

   

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 13) — Out of the over 9.1 million individuals who have completed their COVID-19 vaccination in the country, only 116 or 0.001% had breakthrough infections, according to data from the Food and Drug Administration.

In the report presented by FDA Director General Eric Domingo on Friday, 88% of the 116 people who got infected 14 days after being fully vaccinated were either asymptomatic or showed mild symptoms. Only 11% were brought to the hospital.

As of August 1, the data showed 91 out of the 5.09 million individuals fully vaccinated with Sinovac caught the virus while 24 of the 908,000 who received AstraZeneca got breakthrough infections. One person who completed their Pfizer doses also contracted the virus.

Meanwhile, there were no recorded breakthrough infections with those who received Sputnik V, Moderna, and the single-dose Janssen.

However, the FDA is gathering more data on 22 people to check if they got infected after their first dose, less than 14 days after their second dose, or two weeks after being fully vaccinated.

A breakthrough infection is described by health officials as someone found with SARS-CoV-2 virus in their system 14 days after completing their single- or two-dose COVID-19 vaccine. It takes the body 14 days to significantly build antibodies after receiving the shots.

Domingo said an elderly man died of COVID-19 more than two weeks after getting his second Sinovac shot. He stressed that the man died because of the infection, not because of the vaccine.

Domingo explained that breakthrough infections can be expected because people build different levels of antibodies. He said all vaccines in the country — regardless of brand — are still proven effective against severe COVID-19 that could lead to hospitalization or death.

"We can safely say that the benefit of vaccination outweighs the risk pagdating sa pag-prevent ng COVID at pagkamatay [The benefits outweigh the risk when it comes to preventing hospitalizations and deaths]. The vaccines are effective and critical to control the pandemic," he said in a media briefing.

This was supported by Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire.

"Sinabi natin noong umpisa pa lang na hindi niya kaya i-block ang transmission totally kaya tayo nagkakaroon ng impeksyon pa rin kahit bakunado na tayo," she said. "Pero ang nakikita nating impeksyon among vaccinated individuals, most of these infections are mild and asymptomatic. Ibig sabihin gumagana ang bakuna."

[Translation: We were transparent from the start that vaccines cannot completely block transmission so some people can still get infected even if they are vaccinated. Those vaccinated who got sick, we see that their infections are mild and asymptomatic, which means the vaccines are working.]

Over 12.28 million Filipinos or 17.19% of the country's target population are already fully vaccinated, as of Friday

This begs my question, if the majority of your candidates are healthy

Pet peeve alert: It may raise the question. Begging the question is I believe a different very specific thing people hear other people misuse, think it sounds cool, and repeat. To answer, if the control group and the test group are composed of otherwise similar individuals, it's not a problem. In this specific case, if both groups are otherwise healthy individuals, then one could say the vaccine is 96% effective when comparing unvaccinated healthy vs vaccinated healthy folks. If both groups contain similar numbers of otherwise healthy folks a a few with health problems, again, the result is valid for populations that are similar to the test subjects. 

That's pretty normal for statistical studies I think.

VACCINATION CARD

Hello.

-Hi, table for two, please.

-Sure, and your name.

-Cody.

-Great. And do you and your guest have your vaccination cards?

-Hmmm well first..Can you tell us who our server will be?

-Um, looks like Brad will be your server tonight.

-Great. Can you show us Brad's vaccination card?

-Um...

-And also, can you provide me with proof that Brad is not a carrier of HIV, Hepatitis A or B, or any other communicable diseases? Same for you and the kitchen staff.

-Um...

-Also, we would prefer not to be served by someone who is on or uses recreational drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, meth, fentanyl, etc, so if you could provide us with Brad's most recent tox screen, that would be great. Matter of fact, imma need to see all of your employees medical history.

-Um... Let me get the manager for you.

-That would be great, thanks. Make sure they have their vax card and medical records please.

Here’s the thing, nobody needs restaurants. And other places. But they need us. Start standing your ground.

Stolen and passing along

No worries. As long as there is a brief descriptor, which you have written, we are good with posting links.

Besides, it most likely won't be read by the conspiracy theory crowd.

Does that mean the Pfizer jab does cause heart problems?
