    Dr. Jefferson Jones, a medical officer on the CDC’s COVID-19 Epidemiology Task Force.

    Thinking that we’ll be able to achieve some kind of threshold where there’ll be no more transmission of infections may not be possible,” Jones acknowledged last week to members of a panel that advises the CDC on vaccines…..

    none has proved reliable at blocking transmission of the virus, Jones noted.

    To Dr. Oliver Brooks, a member of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, it was a sobering new message, with potentially worrisome effects.

    …. Brooks, chief medical officer of Watts Healthcare in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, he said, Jones’ unexpected admission “almost makes you less motivated to get more people vaccinated.

    Brooks said he worries that as the CDC backs off a specific target for herd immunity, it will take the air out of efforts to run up vaccination levels.

    And if public health officials stop talking about the “herd,” people may lose sight of the fact that vaccination is not just an act of personal protection but a way to protect the community.

    Covid: Double vaccinated can still spread virus at home – BBC News

    Individuals who have had two vaccine doses can be just as infectious as those who have not been jabbed.

    We found that among unvaccinated contacts in these households the secondary attack rate was 38%, that is the proportion of unvaccinated contacts who are infected in households where there is an infectious index (first) case.

    In doubly vaccinated households, the figure was still 25%. This is very alarming, a very high secondary attack rate given these are doubly vaccinated contacts.
