The New American: Nearly three-fourths of COVID-19 cases associated with recent public events in a Massachusetts town — and four-fifths of hospitalizations — occurred in fully vaccinated individuals, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report released Friday.

“During July 3–17, 2021,” wrote the CDC, “multiple summer events and large public gatherings were held in a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, that attracted thousands of tourists from across the United States.” (NBC News named Provincetown as the locale.) About halfway through the period, the Massachusetts Department of Health began noticing an uptick in the COVID-19 cases among people who either live in or had recently visited Provincetown. By July 17, the 14-day average COVID-19 incidence among Provincetown residents reached 177 cases per 100,000 persons, up from zero on July 3.

Here is where it gets interesting. Of the 469 cases of COVID-19 infection associated with the Provincetown events, 74 percent occurred in individuals who had received all the required doses of their chosen vaccine. At the time, only 69 percent of eligible Bay Staters had been vaccinated; nationally, as of this writing, about 57 percent of the population has accepted The Jab.

While the vaccines are supposed to minimize the symptoms of COVID-19, 79 percent of vaccinated people who caught the virus in Provincetown “reported signs or symptoms, with the most common being cough, headache, sore throat, myalgia [muscular pain], and fever,” the CDC noted.

When it comes to hospitalizations, things look even worse for vaccine proponents. Read More
