The CDC director accidentally let it slip that they actually do look at the data.
“Vaccinated people do not carry the virus — they don’t get sick,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday. That’s “not just in the clinical trials, but it’s also in real-world data.”
But then politics and theater got back in the way.
"Even the Centers for Disease Control hedged on Walensky’s claims. “Dr. Walensky spoke broadly during this interview,” a CDC spokesperson told the Times . “It’s possible that some people who are fully vaccinated could get Covid-19. The evidence isn’t clear whether they can spread the virus to others. We are continuing to evaluate the evidence.”
There was a headline on Yahoo News last week along the lines of 102 people in Washington (state) who had received two vaccine shots came down with Covid. In the middle of the article they did report that represented 0.01% of the more than one million who had received both shots.
