A Vaccinated Person Is 6 Times Safe Than An Unvaccinated Person

Former US Secretary of State Colin Powell died on Monday of Covid-19 complications. His family announced that he was fully vaccinated. He was 84 years old, and had multiple myeloma, a blood cancer. Health officials worry that anti-vaccine activists will seize upon Powell’s death to make the claim that vaccines don’t work. ⁠

CNN’s Medical Analyst Dr. Leana Wen explains why vaccines are effective despite breakthrough cases. “Covid-19 vaccines do not protect you 100%. No vaccine does, just likely virtually no medical treatment is 100% effective. That doesn’t mean the vaccine doesn’t work, or that you shouldn’t take it,” she writes.
