The recent surge of COVID infections has caused many to wonder if the vaccine has
done its job. After all, many of us know of folks who have been vaccinated but have
tested positive for the virus infection. So, what’s up with that?!
These are called “breakthrough infections” and are becoming more common as the Delta
variant surges. The good news is that the vaccine is proving effective in reducing
severe symptoms, including hospitalizations and deaths. The vaccine has been shown
to be 79% effective against symptomatic infection and 96% effective against hospitalizations
related to the Delta variant.

Delta variant. In June, the Arkansas Department of Health found that 91% of cases, hospitalizations,
and deaths were among unvaccinated individuals. The numbers for July reflect similar
data, with 88% of cases and hospitalizations and 85% of deaths being among the unvaccinated.
The Delta variant is highly contagious, even more so than the common cold, the flu,
or even chickenpox. New evidence suggests that the Delta variant can be spread by
vaccinated people. But the highest spread of cases and severe outcomes is happening
in places with low vaccination rates, and virtually all hospitalizations and deaths
have been among the unvaccinated.
