When you compare case rates by vaccination status, it looks like this… (click me for breakdown- hint: the vaccines work very well!)

  • Fully vaccinated & boosted: 21 per 100,000
  • Fully vaccinated, no booster: 145 per 100,000
  • Unvaccinated: 640 per 100,000

So cases are 30x higher in unvaccinated folks than boosted folks. The third shot is crucial!
