Update October 30, 2021: a UK study finds that “the domestic secondary attack rate for delta infection, regardless of vaccination status, was 26%” and “peak viral load did not differ from vaccination status” .
- Update October 29, 2021: unlike natural immunity, Israeli data confirm that the protection of the Pfizer vaccine has vanished in a few months in all age groups.
- Update October 13, 2021: UK data finds that vaccines are “highly effective”, but effectiveness declines after just 3-4 months.

Update October 8, 2021: A study of healthcare workers in Vietnam found that vaccinated people infected with Delta Covid-19 carry “unusually high viral loads” in their nostrils that are “251 times higher” than normal.
The study said that during a time when vaccinated patients are infected but don’t know it yet, they could be responsible for a greater spread to other vaccinated or unvaccinated.

On April 30, “the CDC reported that approximately 10,626 breakthrough cases have been reported in 46 states and territories.” Revolutionary cases are those in which fully vaccinated people end up infected with Covid-19 again.
Scientists hoped that Covid-19 vaccines would be effective in Covid-19 variants, which are naturally occurring mutations with viruses and have always been expected with Covid-19. However, the effectiveness of the variant vaccine may be limited. CDC and vaccine manufacturers are studying the medical landscape to find out more.
