Partisans Seize on Edited Clip of CDC Director’s Comments on COVID-19 Vaccine Effectiveness 

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, discussed a recent study that found that on the rare occasion when fully vaccinated people died from COVID-19, they often had multiple risk factors for severe disease.

EDITORIAL SUMMARY

The unvaccinated population in the U.S. is costing the American tax payer trillions of dollars per year. When compared to those who are vaccinated, unvaccinated people are 2-4 times more likely to get Covid-19; 5-7 times more likely to be hospitalized with Covid-19; and those 65+ were 11 times more likely to die of Covid-19. 

When people are sick they can’t work — therefore work does not get done — and our supply chains are strained. If they did go to work they would be spreading disease which would only lead to more deaths, an overwhelmed health care system, and a higher level of prevalence and long-term morbidity that only exacerbates the problem for years to come.
