Results: Among 47,742 admissions in 38,508 unique patients with laboratory-confirmed SARS-CoV-2, N=28,731 met the criteria for moderate-to-severe COVID-19. The proportion with moderate-to-severe disease prior to widespread vaccine availability was 64.0% (95% CI, 63.1-64.9%) versus 52.0% in the later period (95% CI, 50.9-53.2%), p-value for non-constant effect, <0.001. Disease severity in the vaccine era among hospitalized patients was lower among both unvaccinated (55.0%, 95% CI, 53.7-56.4%) and vaccinated patients (42.6%, 95% CI, 40.6-44.8%).

Conclusions and Relevance: The proportion of hospitalizations that are due to severe COVID-19 has changed with vaccine availability, thus, increasing proportions of mild and asymptomatic cases are included in hospitalization reporting metrics. The addition of simple measures of disease severity to the case definition of a SARS-CoV-2 hospitalization is a straightforward and objective change that should improve the value of the metric for tracking SARS-CoV-2 disease burden.

In other words, the vaccine works.

Even if you've already been infected, the vaccine can offer additional protection vs natural immunity.

Reduced Risk of Reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 After COVID-19 Vaccination — Kentucky, May–June 2021

Summary
What is already known about this topic?

Reinfection with human coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has been documented. Currently, limited evidence concerning the protection afforded by vaccination against reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 is available.

What is added by this report?

Among Kentucky residents infected with SARS-CoV-2 in 2020, vaccination status of those reinfected during May–June 2021 was compared with that of residents who were not reinfected. In this case-control study, being unvaccinated was associated with 2.34 times the odds of reinfection compared with being fully vaccinated.

What are the implications for public health practice?

To reduce their likelihood for future infection, all eligible persons should be offered COVID-19 vaccine, even those with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection.

He should say the exact research of lettuce. There is specific break through research regarding this.

Instead of spreading a conspiracy theory about covid. To people this is a joke, but tbh many people believe this.
That is why I am trying to wake people up, before they fall off the edge. (Figure of speech)

I don't know about Covid or Vaccine mandate, but we have effectively eliminated the flu.
From 38 million to 2k+ cases! wow.

This has never made any sense to me.

There is no way there have been only 2k cases of the flu.  Do people just get tested for covid when they are sick and if it’s negative it’s just a cold??

Or are masks just that effective against the flu and not covid?

Either way, 2k can not be right.  You don’t go from 38M to 2k.

Check out the graph of flu cases by date.  It’s a miracle, really.

I'm sure the record 193.8 million flu vaccinations had no impact.

Or half the kids not being in class and the other half being bathed with sanitizer if they touched anything while in school.  My kid 14 kids in class.

Let me tell you this. You dont need a college degree to see many people dying of covid recently because they are unvaccinated. I think no one wants to have a tube shoved down their throat, gasp for air, laying on a bed in the hallway of the icu because of capacity issue.

Foxnews trying to play both sides? The company has a vaccine mandate policy or get tested, but many hosts on foxnews promote conspiracy theories about covid. As long as I am safe, it is okay? (Wink wink) If you dont believe me, google search the foxnews memo to employees.  ;)

Don't forget the huge reduction in travel especially international

Flu is seasonal so it migrates around the globe to follow cold weather. Much harder to do that without heavy international travel.

qwerty... it's science... protocols that limit the spread of Covid also limit the spread of any other infectious virus.

If that's not proof of the efficacy of masks, social distancing and hand-washing... not sure what is.

Personally, I'm shocked everybody isn't very very suspicious about the tiny little yellow colored hump representing flu deaths ~35000/yr. disappeared in the giant blue triple spike of Covid deaths.  /sarcasm.
