CDC releases shocking COVID vaccine figures for New York
The CDC has studied the effectiveness of COVID vaccines. The results shock some New Yorkers.
According to the CDC, 99.999% of people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in the United States have not had a case of COVID-19 that resulted in death or hospitalization.
The CDC says that as of July 26, more than 163 million people in the United States have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Of those 163 million, 6,239 breakthrough hospitalizations have been reported and 1,263 fully vaccinated people have died from COVID.
“As with other vaccines, vaccine breakthroughs will occur, even if the vaccines work as expected. Asymptomatic infections in those vaccinated will also occur,” the CDC said.
Figures provided by the CDC show that 0.004% of fully vaccinated Americans end up in hospital with COVID while 0.001 of fully vaccinated Americans die from COVID, CNN reports.

The CDC defines a breakthrough case as someone who gets COVID two weeks after being fully vaccinated. There is some evidence that vaccination can make the disease less serious for those who are vaccinated and who still get sick.
The CDC recommends that anyone aged 12 and over get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told New Yorkers on Monday that if you are vaccinated you are less likely to catch COVID and very unlikely to be hospitalized.
According to Cuomo among fully vaccinated New Yorkers, 4 in 100,000 were infected with COVID during the week of July 19. 17 out of 100,000 unvaccinated New Yorkers became infected with COVID in the same week.
