The Vaccinated Were Over 10 Percent More Likely than the Unvaxxed to Contract Covid-19 This Past Week, According to LA County Public Health Data
To say the vaccines are losing efficacy seems an understatement
February 17, 2022
February 10, 2022 - According to data released today by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, the vaccinated population contracted Covid-19 at a rate more than 10% higher than the unvaccinated during the week between February 3 and February 10.
Number of vaccinated individuals: 7,131,679 (71.2% of the county population)
Total number of new infections this week: 52,044
Number of infections in vaccinated people: 42,651
82% of the new infections were in vaccinated people during the past week. With the vaccinated making up 71.2% of the county's population and assuming the vaccine had zero effect on preventing infection, one would expect to see 71.2% of new infections among the vaccinated. Instead, they comprised 82% of new infections. The vaccinated appeared to be 10.8% more likely to contract Covid-19 this week than the unvaccinated.
The vaccines have not proven to be terribly effective at preventing transmission since data on the subject has been released by the LADPH, well below 40% during any given week. In looking at a longer time span, from June 1, 2021 to January 25, 2022, the average benefit conveyed by the vaccine was 9.7%.
This week, however, is the first time the benefit has proven to go negative and make it look as though the vaccine might actually be contributing to infections.
