This Means Less Than You Think

CDC: About 75 Percent of Omicron Cases Are in Fully Vaccinated People › American Greatness (amgreatness.com)

But what it does mean is that your vaccination offers no significant protection against getting this variant of the virus. It may offer you some protection against the virus affecting you seriously. Of course, the Omicron variant doesn’t appear to have serious effects in any case.

The Omicron variant has been detected in at least 19 states in the U.S., and is striking mainly fully vaccinated people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Forty-three people in 19 states have tested positive for omicron, according to remarks made to the Associated Press by Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 75 percent of those cases are in people who are fully vaccinated, and one person has been hospitalized. One-third of those individuals had traveled internationally; one-third had received a booster. The cases so far have been “mild,” she said.

I still think you should be rushing out to get Omicron. Seems like the best way to stay healthy in the future.
