Experts’ Take On The Efficacy Of Covid-19 Vaccines


  • Experts note on the Covid-19 vaccines’ high effectiveness in preventing severe disease and death.
  • Over 99.99 percent of completely vaccinated people in the United States have not suffered breakthrough symptoms.
  • According to the CDC, seven of the ten states with the highest case rates also had the highest vaccination rates.

As federal regulators evaluate the potential of granting a third dose, health experts reiterate that comprehensive vaccination remains highly effective against severe disease and death caused by Covid-19, reports CNN.

Dr. Paul Offit, a top vaccine expert and US Food and Drug Administration adviser, said, “What’s the goal of this vaccine? The stated goal by (CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky) and others is to prevent serious infection, and all the data today, published by the CDC, presented by the CDC, is it’s done exactly that.” 

Effectiveness of the Covid-19 Vaccines

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data from last month, more than 99.99 percent of fully vaccinated people have not experienced a breakthrough case of Covid-19 that resulted in hospitalization or death.

Dr. Megan Ranney, an emergency medicine professor at Brown University, stated, “Remember, even the current doses of vaccines still protect you so well from hospitalization and death. We are not back in early 2020 or even early 2021 for those of us that have not received boosters yet. We are still protected against the worst effects of this virus.”

And it’s because of this high level of protection that by merely vaccinating the unvaccinated, America can make substantial progress against the pandemic.

Growing Anxiety

“I think the message that should come out right now is that if you received two doses of mRNA vaccines, you have a very high chance of not having a serious infection, and this has lasted up until the present moment, that you should consider yourself protected against serious illness,” Offit said when explaining more about the people’s concerns and frustrations.

According to CDC data, over 62.2 percent of the US population has received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose, with 52.9 percent fully immunized. According to the CDC, seven of the ten states with the highest Covid-19 case rates also had the highest vaccination rates.
