← Return to COVID Vaccines & Spreading COVID Efficacy

Comment receiving replies

Hi All, This is such a challenging situation. I am very saddened that people are getting ill regardless of how. I send my best healing thoughts and prayers to all!!! I still really don't have an answer to my first question. I am figuring it is because we really don't know. Do you think that is the only answer right now? If you feel you do know, I would love to hear about it. Thanks for all of your help and responses to my question. They are greatly appreciated. Here's the question again. Do the Moderna, J&J/J and the Pfizer vaccines all prevent people vaccinated from spreading COVID19?

Hi Lyoness, below, I posted an excerpt from the latest CDC posting on May 27, 2021. It looks like nothing definitive yet as data is still being collected. This will take time and is ongoing.

“A growing body of evidence indicates that people fully vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) are less likely to have asymptomatic infection or to transmit SARS-CoV-2 to others. Studies are underway to learn more about the benefits of Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine. However, the risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus.”

I would like to point to the dramatically declining in the number of infections and hospitalizations in highly vaccinated areas compared to those where fewer are vaccinated. For example in Minnesota counties with a vaccination rate of 75% are seeing 0 to 15/10,000 new cases per week - even heavily urban areas. Counties with vaccination rates around 50% are seeing case rates around 25-35/10,000 weekly

All county infection rates are down dramatically since vaccination rates ramped up, and hospitaliztions, ICU admits and deaths are all down dramatically even though the state is "fully open" for nearly a month, and mask mandates are dropped.

CDC Summary data shows similar declines across the board. See covid.cdc.gov for details.

I believe the data clearly shows the efficacy of the vaccine in limiting the spread of Covid, and also the severity of the virus in immunized people.
