The good news is that the vaccine seems to reduce ‘serious Covid’ as well as SARS2 infection. The bad news is that we can’t tell from the data at what rate the vaccinated are still getting and replicating the virus. Overall the Pfizer study reported that 15 vaccinated and 14 unvaccinated people died…so almost exactly the same number in each arm. Troublingly, the study failed to tell us much if anything about the disposition of some 262 vaccinated people who had “serious” adverse events. We don’t know how many recovered, how many hadn’t yet, or what the issues were. The data are very unclear. Is this on purpose?
On the surface the data is favorable but sorely lacking in necessary detail
