It's getting more difficult to scientifically blame the unvaccinated for all of the Covid-19 ills hitting the U.S. and other countries.
According to a new analysis by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), most of the people who got Covid-19, as well as almost all of those who were hospitalized, had been fully vaccinated.
The report contradicts multiple false reports that have claimed the vaccines are "100% effective" in preventing hospitalization. It also contradicts false reports that have implied vaccinated people are not spreading Covid-19. According to CDC, the fully vaccinated are showing just as high of a "viral load" as unvaccinated people who get infected.
CDC published new data on the topic in its weekly report. It says that most of the identified cases of Covid-19 in a Barnstable County, Massachusetts, town, in July (74%) were among fully vaccinated people. Most, but not all, had the Delta variant.
Additionally, four of five hospitalized patients were fully vaccinated. Only one was not fully vaccinated.
Today, CDC also acknowledged that Covid-19 viral load is "similarly high" in both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. That's a result, say officials, of the Delta variant.
From the start, virologists said that there would be natural variants to Covid-19. They also accurately predicted that effectiveness of Covid-19 vaccines would wear down in a matter of months, not years. Now, CDC is confirming that the current Covid-19 vaccines are not working effectively against Covid-19.
In contrast, the millions of Americans who have fought off Covid-19 infections, either with or without symptoms, are proving to have greater and longer lasting immunity, so far, than those who have been vaccinated. That, too, was predicted by virologists.
According to CDC, "high viral loads suggest an increased risk of transmission and raised concern that, unlike with other variants, vaccinated people infected with Delta can transmit the virus."

CDC said this latest finding "is concerning and was a pivotal discovery leading to CDC’s updated mask recommendation [for vaccinated people to mask in high-risk indoor situations]. The masking recommendation was updated to ensure the vaccinated public would not unknowingly transmit virus to others, including their unvaccinated or immunocompromised loved ones."
Brian moore says
“High viral load” is not the same thing as being sick. If one is not sick, yet has a. “High viral load” the vaccine has worked for them. I suspect a mask could have a high viral load if used in an area where the virus is present.

You can tell she works for the NyT. they want the country shut down so people can't go to the polls and mail in voting (cheating machine) can be utilized again

Our world today is so worse, going worser. They're destroying it,so they :could stablish the Anti- Christ govt. A govt without God.
Sharyl Attkisson is an independent, honest, and reputable reporter. She does not work at the NYT. The NYT would never allow her to report how ineffective the COVID vaccines are.
Non sense. Ivermectin works. Several other old drugs work too. It’s all evil Gates and big (((Pharmaceutical))). Big money. Sad half the country can’t see this. Don’t get the jab! You have an immune system.
Carla Harkins says
You are absolutely right. I'm not suggesting anyone should or shouldn't get the jab. Just Gates and other politicians are so scared of you finding out other drugs work, nurses gets fired if they give it to you.
She didn’t say that anywhere.
The article is clear that Attkisson is anti-vax mandate and therefore definitely anti-shutdown.
It is not a “ vaccine “ by CDC standards it does not qualify. It is an experimental gene therapy.
Unapproved, and tested on you. No thanks. Oh, BTW it contains Graphene Oxide, another name for lead, highly poisonous to humans. That is Gate’s “trade secret” he wouldn’t expose, but is listed in the patent. Chinese
From the CDC:
“ High viral loads suggest an increased risk of transmission and raised concern that, unlike with other variants, vaccinated people infected with Delta can transmit the virus.
Sounds like you didn’t understand what she was saying.
Because they can have a “high viral load”, the vaccinated can be just as contagious as the unvaccinated.
Oh please, mask don't work and vaccines diffently do not work, there are more people that are vaxxed than not getting the virus, they end up in hospital and get Fauci protocols of remdesivir and ventilator and you die, the end. But there are doctors now saving lives with correct protocols of Ivermectin and Zinc the have cured 99% of covid patients, no one has to DIE unless you are believing the media and all there lies.

Gene Snyder says
I don't care what the CDC says. I don't believe them anymore. The stupid virus is here to stay so we all have to learn to live with it just like the seasonal influenza. Let's move on. The Biden Administration is doing a terrible job with this and all the confusing information.
David M Sherman says
Totally agree. Need to learn to live with it just as we have other viruses.
I agree completely! It's here to stay and nobody ever said the vaccine would stop you from getting covid that it was to lessen symptoms when you do! I agree, move on already, there's more going on out there that needs to be addressed.
Jim Sorce says
I agree 100% with you on your statement.
I wish they would let scientists from around the world give their scientific opinions concerning the virus and mask wearing/not wearing. This is insane that all of this is coming from the CDC along with "Dr. Fauci."
Warren Fahy says
The vaccines seem to be a continuation of Gain-of-Function experiments with humans instead of mice in the Wuhan lab.
Ed Sarlls says
How many people with each vaccine type were infected vs the population with that vaccine type?
4 of 5 is not statistically useful information. 400 of 500 would be interesting. Again, with differentiation among vaccine types.
One question: how is it determined that the Delta variant is present? What test is used? I do not see anyone asking about this.
If they are doing full blown PCR tests they can tell. I don't believe a rapid test could do that.
Dr. Wade Smith says
Pcr tests cannot differentiate between any of the covid (corona, flu, wuhan, common cold, sars all types) viruses. Plus excess replication ensure false positives.
CDC took PCR off EUA and is to withdraw in Dec 2021. They state issue is unable to distinguish btw influenzas and Sarscov2. Really after 18 months of a testdemic
Paula S. says
Actually the inventor of the PCR test Kary Mullins pointed out the PCR test could be easily misused and we now know the cycle counts recommended by the CDC were inappropriate and resulted in many false positives. Furthermore, court findings that said: Everything relied on the PCR test, which the judges found flimsy: “However, in view of the current scientific evidence, this test is, in itself, unable to determine, beyond reasonable doubt, that such positivity corresponds, in fact, to a person’s infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.”
PCR tests can give any result required depending on how many cycles ( amplifications) are used. The test is therefore useless.
Look up Dr. Peter McCullough. He is mind-blowing insightful on Covid, vaccines, therapeutics and testing. He explains there are only certain labs that can determine the variants and they are extrapolated out.
"Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS)"...see comment from CDC (actually a picture of a CDC comment):
P.S...we love you Sharyl!
Yes! I was wondering the same thing. And now that they are saying the PCR tests are not accurate, how are they even testing at all?
Kim Francisco says
They can’t tell. There is no test that test for Any COVID including 19 or Wuhan Virus, the test were not made for that! The inventor said so! Just like the inventor of RNA vaccine said it does not work against any COVID including the common cold. Anti-Body Dependence Enhancement will be the results of those who took a RNA vaccine.
So if they have this much information then they also should know which vaccine the people had.
Why isn't his information being communicated. Is one more effective ? Shouldn't we know that ?
Everything is just one coverup after another.
Greg Knott says
RE: "The report contradicts multiple false reports that have claimed the vaccines are "100% effective" in preventing hospitalization."
The reports were on the clinical trials. Real-world data rarely matches the trial data exactly. A sample size of 5 hospitalized patients in a single county is not as significant as the aggregate real-world data from the entire USA showing that 96-99% of the hospitalized are unvaccinated. Also, the trial data was true but was tested against less contagious variants. Delta is many times more transmissible. That makes the trial data simply 'outdated' rather than 'false'. Science is seeking the truth and adjusting to new information.
Clark Coleman says
As with all pronouncements from public health agencies, how do we know we can trust them? How do you know that 96-99% of hospitalized cases are unvaccinated?
Recently, a Scripps Hospital (California chain) memo was posted in which the guidelines were: Unvaccinated patients should be tested for Covid-19 upon admission even if not Covid-symptomatic (which will inflate numbers, as they might be admitted for another reason, might be carrying a virus other than SARS-2 that produces a positive PCR test, etc.), while vaccinated patients are NOT to be tested unless they have Covid-specific symptoms. So, apples vs. oranges statistics will be produced.
What is your basis for trusting public health agency announcements? Certainly not their record over the last 18 months.
LV girl says
Are the sick vaccinated really sick with the virus or the spike protein? They took a jab that programmed their body to create spike proteins. The spike protein is now beginning to make havoc in the body. They are getting "sick". There is no real test for the COVID virus, so will we ever know? It's lie after lie after lie.
Mary, Mary says
A good question. Do a little research on Dr. Robert Malone and Antibody Dependent Enhancement. He was involved in the creation of mRNA vaccine technology and has stated "...... the development of antibody dependent enhancement among those vaccinated with COVID vaccines is the vaccinologist's worst nightmare." LifeSite, July 30, 2021.
Kristin Q says
When identified as “unvaccinated,” is there any data saying how many if those had had Covid-19? Curious to know if those with natural immunity are becoming as sick.
Also, is it still true that new cases exclude vaccinated people UNLESS they’re hospitalized?
Why aren't HCQ, ivermectin, and budesonide being freely used to not only treat active cases but also given prophylactically to stop these variants in their tracks?? They've been PROVEN to work and are EASILY obtainable!!!
Karla Jones says
They don't want people healed they want them dead!
If the "vaccine" doesn't impart any immunity then what is the point of the "vaccine?" I am not anti-vaccine. I've taken many in my life when needed because they conferred substantial immunity. for years. Clearly these new Covid injections do not confer immunity.
I would like to see Sheryl dive into the scientific concept of Antibody Dependent Enhancement disease. .If this condition comes to fruition as some epidemiologists & virologists have been warning, even with the heavily censored media,. The vaccinated are not only spreading it but will suffer more from any wild type coronovirus that comes across their path because of pathogenic priming.from the vaccine itself.. If I understand it correctly ,making the vaccination an agent that speed dials future infections (My words) . Antibody dependent Enhancement Risks is why every attempt to make a vaccine to Covid infections has failed in the past in animal trials (according to Dr. Robert Malone inventor & patent holder of mRNA technology). He said this on the Steve Bannons show .This vaccine never should of been rushed to market especially considering the suppression of therapeutics , Early treatment protocols such as the ones Dr, Zelenko pioneered in NY & those of Dr. Pierre Korry & Dr. McCullough speak of . Known drugs with long safety records could of been used to treat Covid, & could of saved lives. These are the crimes of the century in my opinion.
The FDA,The CDC, NIAID had to know all this ?
Deb Miller says
Check this out…..It will blow your mind!! We have been LIED TO, DUPED. WE NEED TO STAND UP AGAINST MEDICAL TYRANNY!! NO MORE MASKS!! NO MORE MASK MANDATES!! NO MORE VACCINE MANDATES!!! Go to AFLDS.com…..they have forms to use to fight mask and vaccine mandates. WE need to STOP being SHEEPLE and use the Constitution!!! Look at the Nuremberg Code…..it has been violated!!! Prayer and love for America…..that is what we NEED!!!!!
Stephen Triesch says
It sounds like this report is based on a very small data set - just one town. I have heard claims from other places where the results were allegedly much different, with virtually all of the people hospitalized supposedly unvaccinated. So I'll keep my eyes open and wait for more data.
EXACTLY... and also why this data should not be taken as an indicator of the entire country. I wonder if maybe this town got a bad batch of vaccine... meaning that perhaps someone left it somewhere without being refrigerated and it "killed" the vaccine.
This happened in Provincetown, one of the gayest places in America (NTTAWWT). I would bet that there was a lot of extra close contact involved in the transmission
Brian Uhing says
Unelected bureaucrats making policy government policy. The CDC is a 501C3 entity. It's not even part of the government. To me they have zero credibility. Psalm 118-8:9
Kevin M. says
Dude: there are always "unelected bureaucrats" who make government policy. That's how government works. You elect a president and the president appoints executive branch leaders (subject to Senate confirmation), and they hire people under them to formulate and carry out policy.
The CDC was extremely irresponsible and unethical in the way it lumped unvaccinated, partially vaccinated, and unknown status together. The purpose for this was to minimize the negative impact of vaccines.
Unknown vaccination status ought to have been excluded.
Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated ought not to have been lumped together.
Then we could compare the different populations more precisely and minimize data uncertainty introduced by those of unknown vaccination status.
I suspect that the 1.23 relative risk of infection for the fully vaccinated to the rest would balloon when compared with the unvaccinated.
Also, the 1.81 relative risk of hospitalization for the fully vaccinated to the rest would balloon when compared with the unvaccinated.
The Biden administration does not want us cured. They want us vaccinated or dead. I survived COVID & my doctor told me "DON'T get the vaccine!" She gave me hydroxychloroquine & I went from dying to cured & now have natural immunity. Biden doesn't recognize natural immunity but it's more effective than the vaccine. It's actually not a vaccine, it's an experiment we'll know more about years from now.
