“So if I tell you that if you are vaccinated, you have a … 99.999% chance of not dying from this virus, what else in life gives you that kind of guarantee? Our vaccines are exquisitely effective and very safe,” Reiner told CNN Saturday. “But the news is just phenomenal with these vaccines, even with the super aggressive Delta variant, our vaccines work and they work really well.” Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a CNN medical analyst and professor of medicine and surgery at George Washington University, echoed Wen’s stance. While there was a recent vaccination lag in many pockets of the country, inoculations have started to pick up. The seven-day average of new doses administered per day in the US is now 652,084, up 26% over three weeks ago. The increase is even sharper in Southern states, which have some of the lowest in vaccination rates in the country.
“So the CDC should actually be saying, ‘Look, the reason we’re doing indoor mandates is because the unvaccinated cannot be trusted to put on masks. That’s why the vaccinated also have to be putting on masks,’” she said. Wen clarified that the federal government’s recent guidance that fully vaccinated people should mask up is not an indication that the vaccines aren’t working.

“I really think that that would clarify things because ultimately the issue is the unvaccinated. They really need to prevent this idea from taking over that somehow the vaccines don’t work because that’s exactly the opposite of what the CDC data are showing.” The CDC reported a total of 6,587 breakthrough cases, including 6,239 hospitalizations and 1,263 deaths as of July 26. At that time, more than 163 million people in the US were fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
Just under half, 49.5%, of the total US population is fully vaccinated, CDC data published Saturday showed. Industry urges more vaccinations among health care workers “If we take the steps that are necessary to squash the amount of disease that is there now, we can do so in a matter of weeks, if we all get vaccinated, if we wear masks,” Walensky told Fox News Friday.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Americans can lower Covid-19 infections in a matter of weeks with vaccination and masks. In Alabama, where roughly 34% of the total population is fully vaccinated, the seven-day average is more than double that of three weeks ago. And Arkansas, with just 36% of its population fully vaccinated, has also seen its average daily rate of doses administered double in the past three weeks.
