Newly published CDC data shows a massive increase in COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations since the emergence of the omicron variant among those who have been fully vaccinated.
The data, which is used by local health departments across the nation, indicate the case rate in fully vaccinated people rose by more than 1,000% between Dec. 11, 2021, and Jan. 8, 2022, the Epoch Times reported.
People who have received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving a final shot.
The COVID case rate of those who received a booster, a third shot, also spiked, by about 2,400% between the same dates.
Dr. Peter McCullough, a cardiologist and epidemiologist who is one of the leading critics of the COVID vaccines, pointed out that “reductions in hospitalization and death were never demonstrated” in randomized controlled studies.
“Now, (there is) disappointment as the data come in to support what everyone has known for months,” he wrote on Twitter.
According to the CDC data, cases also rose among the unvaccinated, but at a much lower rate. Consequently, the Epoch Times reported, “people who haven’t received a vaccine were just 3.2 times more likely to test positive for COVID-19 in January” than boosted adults.
U.S. health officials are considering authorizing second boosters for the general public.
