Last month, Israel, the most vaccinated country in the world (with leading mRNA jabs, no less) saw the number of positive COVID tests increase more than 30x because the number of active infections in the country exceeded 10K.
Meanwhile, the Israeli Ministry of Health, which previously estimated the true effectiveness of the Pfizer jab against the delta variant at only 64% (while more than 90% effective in preventing serious illness and death), new data has just been released to show that while the Pfizer jab is still 88% effective in preventing serious illness, 39% only effective to prevent delta infection.
Alex Berenson, an NYT reporter who regularly reports scientific findings that do not support the official account of masks and vaccines, shared the findings in a tweet, and speculated that the true effectiveness to offer protection against the Delta race could be equally lower – perhaps as low as 30%.
Israel now says the Pfizer vaccine has only 40% protection against it #Covid infection in the last month.
That’s the good news.
The bad news: the real number is probably below 30% at this point because the 40% number accompanies two weeks where effectiveness is higher. pic.twitter.com/XD3iFRZPPj

Although Bloomberg It was recognized that Israel’s data “could be compromised due to different ways of testing vaccinated groups of people compared to those that have not been vaccinated, according to the report.
“The increasingly reddish patterns of exposure to Israel’s past invasion, limited to specific population sectors and localities,” means that the analysis may not take into account all the factors, according to Ran Balicer, chairman of the national expert advisor to Israel’s Covid-19 Response group. “We’re trying to supplement this research approach with more methods, taking into account more personal characteristics. But it takes time and more case numbers.”
The BBG also acknowledged that the data “is likely to spark debate over whether booster shots should be given to people who have already been vaccinated – something Pfizer says it plans to ask”
But Dr. Anthony Fauci, the FDA and the CDC all say there is still no evidence that a third “booster” shot is necessary. Israel has already ordered a round of its booster shot plan to begin providing the most vulnerable patients Aug. 1.
The numbers in Israel are much lower than in other studies, including a study published today in the New England Journal of Medicine, which found that both doses offered 88% protection against the different Delta causing pain symptoms, while offering 94% protection against alpha differentiation.
But don’t think of it all as: As President Biden said the first week, “if you get vaccinated, you’re safe.” Unless you are.
