Erie Times E-Edition Article-Study: Vaccines saved 279K lives in US

Posted by M. C. on July 14, 2021

The study methodology would certainly be enlightening.

Take for example…you…how do you or the government know if your being asymptomatic, mildly symptomatic, symptomatic enough to visit a doctor and not dying as a result of the virus was due to the vaccine or gene therapy you accepted, a healthy lifestyle or, most importantly and never mentioned, due to your own natural immunity?

Do gene therapies inhibit your natural immune system?

The coronavirus vaccine blitz unleashed late last year saved 279,000 lives and prevented 1.25 million hospitalizations, according to a new study.

“The vaccines have been strikingly successful in reducing the spread of the virus and saving hundreds of thousands of lives in the United States alone,” said lead author Alison Galvani, the Burnett and Stender Families Professor of Epidemiology and the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis at the Yale School of Public Health, which led the study.

However, the delta variant could change those gains, if more people don’t step up for a jab, Galvani said, given that the pandemic is still raging.

“Yet until a greater majority of Americans are vaccinated, many more people could still die from this virus,” she said in a statement. “The danger is not over. Now is not the time to let down our guard.”

Besides the additional deaths and hospitalizations that would have occurred without a vaccination program, the researchers found that if vaccines had been rolled out at half the pace, there would have been nearly 121,000 additional deaths and more than 450,000 additional hospitalizations, they said in the study, which was published by the Commonwealth Fund, a health-equity think tank and advocacy organization.

The U.S. has seen nearly 34 million coronavirus infections and more than 607,000 deaths.

  1. Thanks. I’m being filtered as spam. Here those still getting covid19 badly have had both their vaccinations. The health care professionals think it’s the delta variant.
