CDC recommends the vaccinated wear masks in areas with low vaccination rates
Administration officials had been struggling in recent days with how to respond to a rising number of Covid-19 infections and hospitalization among those who are fully vaccinated.
AUBREY: Yes, absolutely. The delta variant is estimated to be up to 225% more transmissible than the original strain. So, you know, once it finds pockets of unprotected people, it can spread very quickly. Over just the last week, 10% of U.S. counties moved into what the CDC categorizes as high transmission risk. All of these counties have low vaccination rates. Now, there are breakthrough cases where fully vaccinated people are getting infected. But typically, Mary Louise, they're not ending up in the hospital. In fact, 97% of people who are hospitalized from COVID now are unvaccinated.

So, the Feds mandate the vax for employees,
states probably follow suit and then it’s off to the private sector (which sends now seeing with big tech). At the same time, mask mandate hell returns.

Totally anecdotal so take it as you will.
Person I work with had a friend. 65 years old.
Perfectly healthy, non smoker, non drinker, fit and double vaccinated.
Contracted Covid Delta. Dead within a week.
Some options of what happened.
1. Vax doesn’t work?
2. Vax doesn’t work against Delta?
3. Vax killed her?
4. Some unknown underlying condition?
I know of two other double vaccinated people that got regular Covid who were very very ill as well.
I have no idea what the heck is going on but anyone who is blaming the unvaccinated is jumping the gun due to being force fed propaganda.
The RGV sector is one of the main destinations for migrants crossing the border, seeing more than 2000 apprehensions each day and accounting for 60% of confirmed positive detainees in the U.S. Border Patrol custody.
This information was obtained exclusively from a slide distributed to RGV Border Patrol managers to share with agents to help them protect themselves from the virus.
In a local radio interview with KURV 710 AM Tuesday in McAllen, Texas, RGV Sector Chief Brian Hastings spoke about COVID cases among agents and said he’s had more than 40 of his agents test positive this fiscal year.
EXCLUSIVE: The number of detainees who tested positive for COVID-19 in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector alone has increased by 900%, according to information obtained by Fox News.
There were 135 detainees who tested positive in the first two weeks of July alone, marking a 900% increase in confirmed positive cases compared to the previous 14 months.
Vaccine breakthrough cases are expected. COVID-19 vaccines are effective and are a critical tool to bring the pandemic under control. However, no vaccines are 100% effective at preventing illness in vaccinated people. There will be a small percentage of fully vaccinated people who still get sick, are hospitalized, or die from COVID-19.
More than 161 million people in the United States have been fully vaccinated as of July 19, 2021. Like with other vaccines, vaccine breakthrough cases will occur, even though the vaccines are working as expected. Asymptomatic infections among vaccinated people will also occur.
There is some evidence that vaccination may make illness less severe for those who are vaccinated and still get sick.
Current data suggest that COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use in the United States offer protection against most SARS-CoV-2 variants currently circulating in the United States. However, variants will cause some vaccine breakthrough cases.
Getting the vax is the only way to stop all of this because it’s the one thing the left doesn’t expect to happen; actually achieving vaccine victory by their own definition in a short period of time.

I didnt read all of the OP, but your response is enough for me to get the gist. LOL And I agree with you.
To the OP.
Sadly, it is the vaxxed causing all the problems. Gee, thanks a lot gullible naïve people. You are getting ready to make our lives HELL again.
I am proud to be part of the control group and I will continue to sit back and SADLY watch the blowout from the test subjects that got an injection of an experimental concoction of chemicals that have negative physical issues years to come including, death. When there was a 99.8% recovery rate if one got sick, there was never a need for a vaccine in the first place. AND we have cheap drugs that would cure you if you got sick. Why healthy people could not just WAIT for further testing boggles my mind.
This is NOT ABOUT OUR HEALTH.
To this day, the government and 'medicinal professionals' STILL are not MANDATING healthy lifestyles consisting of exercise, healthy diet, vitamins and plenty of outdoor activities.
Our government has STILL not made expensive life saving drugs either FREE or CHEAP.
Our government is STILL allowing thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens to pour over our border, w/out being check for diseases (including covid, aids, stds, etc etc), not being forced to vaccinate for ANY VACCINES (that all of our kids must get to attend schools) and are being SHIPPED to various cities across the country probably infected.
THIS IS 100% ABOUT POLITICS AND CONTROL and 0% about health. Prove me wrong.
