COVID Vaccines Not Proven to Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Infection or Transmission

After analyzing data from a July 2021 Provincetown, Massachusetts COVID-19 outbreak where 74 percent of those infected and diagnosed were fully vaccinated, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last month that vaccinated individuals can become infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and transmit it to others. Expressing “alarm” at this new information, the government agency in charge of protecting the public health doubled down on imperatives for a return to masking, including for the vaccinated, and more vaccination.
