Surprise: Omicron Is Breaking Through Vaccines A Lot

This is not really a good thing in the least, though, the vast majority of cases are like a low level cold. But, the Powers That Be keep telling us that vaccines stop the Chinese Coronavirus.

‘Virtually every’ COVID omicron case at NY college was in fully vaccinated, official says

Cornell University is seeing an uptick in coronavirus cases and has detected the “highly contagious” omicron variant on campus, particularly in fully vaccinated individuals, according to campus officials.

Between Dec. 7 and 13, the Ivy League school in Ithaca, New York, reported 883 students testing positive for COVID-19, its online dashboard shows.

“Virtually every case of the Omicron variant to date has been found in fully vaccinated students, a portion of whom had also received a booster shot,” Joel M. Malina, the school’s vice president for university relations, said in a statement provided to McClatchy News.

On Dec. 13, Cornell’s COVID-19 testing lab found “evidence of the highly contagious Omicron variant in a significant number of Monday’s positive student samples,” university President Martha E. Pollack said in a letter to the campus community.

Out of the students infected with COVID-19, the school has “not seen severe illness” as of Dec. 14, Pollack assured.

Yup, even ones who had been boosterized. And you know this is replicating at plenty of places. And, because of this, all exams will no be online, rather than in the classroom. Vaccination is mandatory for all students.

In sports, despite the vast majority of professional players being vaccinated, all the majors are being hit hard. NFL, NBA, and NHL right now.

It’s still much better to be vaccinated, because the chance of you getting a bad case are significantly lower than if you aren’t. But, you do you. I’m just tired of the obfuscation and lying. Also, Cornell has a mask policy for when anyone is indoors. Not helping, eh?

    Studies are now showing that COVID vaccinations have no lasting effect either on mitigating symptoms, transmission rates, hospitalization or mortality. No effect. Same with masks. The only this that did help was physical isolation. And that only helped until the very next time you went into public to buy food.

    The new strains of the COVID are already in every segment of society and nothing we did as a nation did anything at all about it.

    Nor is there any reason for so-called anti-vaxers to feel smug. Natural immunities are also not lasting. People who have already had it, been treated with harvested anti-bodies, and recovered, are getting sick a second time.

    I am sure that investors in Pfizer would like nothing more than everyone taking an annual shot like with the flu, but this is really more likely to become just a bad cold: something everyone looks forward to once in a while.

      US counties that went for tRump have Covid death rates 7 times greater than counties that voted for President Biden. 7 times.

      Professor: Studies are now showing that COVID vaccinations have no lasting effect either on mitigating symptoms, transmission rates, hospitalization or mortality. No effect. Same with masks.

      This would be an ideal time for you to cite your sources.

      Vaccinations and boosters reduce hospitalizations and deaths. Period. Good masks, medical grade or N, KN95 masks reduce transmission. Cloth masks have little value.

      Here’s the issue with Omicron… it may be as much as five times as transmissible as Delta, and even if it’s only half as severe it can still kill thousands, especially the elderly and infirm.

      • CarolAnn says:

        Currently around the word we are seeing more Covid cases that are vaxxed than not.

        Either way it does not matter since the fake vax that Elwood so bitterly clings to neither stops infection nor transmission of the disease as he knows but for some reason ignores. All it does is reduce the severity of the infection and may, may reduce your chance of death but it does nothing to protect others. Nothing!

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Is CarolAnn now implying that vaccinations make one MORE susceptible to Covid??

          The data that vaccinations reduce your chances of being hospitalized and dying from Covid are quite persuasive. In addition, since vaccinations reduce viral shedding, the chances of spreading Covid is reduced.

          People who are unvaccinated and/or old or infirm are more likely to be hospitalized or die. If you wish to spread Covid to your own family, we guess that’s your prerogative, but you have no right to spread it to others.

          The omicron variant appears to be much more transmissible than the earlier delta variant.

          Therefore, it’s quite likely that everyone in the US will eventually be exposed to the omicron variant. If you’re vaccinated and boosted, your more likely to suffer only mild symptoms, if any. Some, who are unvaccinated, and/or older, with co-morbidities will unfortunately die from the disease.

          Are you opposed to all vaccinations, or just this one?

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Brandon’s Covid deaths have surpassed the number during Trump’s last year when the “vaccines” weren’t even manufactured much less distributed until Operation Warpspeed.
            Had the WHO, FDA and CDC not been such shills for Big Pharma maybe they would have looked at the efficacy of Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine treatments all around the world maybe, just maybe the death count would be way less than now.


            Bwaha! Lolgf

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine have been tested in well-designed clinical studies and found lacking.

          • david7134 says:

            Given the fact that liberals have made this disease into a political fuck up, maybe you should provide the “well designed studies” that you have referenced several times. Studies have been preformed in clinical circumstances for which no medication would be of benefit. But a clinical study involving the early expression of the disease, the circumstances that anecdotal evidence claims benefit would be very expensive and require a very large patient recruitment. Make sure to check the p value on the studies this time.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            That’s alright, Dave.
            Even gave Rimjob a citation which even he might be able to comprehend.
            But no he keeps repeating the old clinical studies bullshit while 100s of 1000s have been treated successfully all over the world.
            He’s just pig ignorant and he shows it with every contrarian post.
            What a dipshit he is.

            Open Forum Infect Dis. 2021 Nov; 8(11): ofab358.
            Published online 2021 Jul 6. doi: 10.1093/ofid/ofab358

            Meta-analysis of Randomized Trials of Ivermectin to Treat SARS-CoV-2 Infection

            Andrew Hill,1 Anna Garratt,2 Jacob Levi,3 Jonathan Falconer,4 Leah Ellis,5 Kaitlyn McCann,5 Victoria Pilkington,6 Ambar Qavi,5 Junzheng Wang,5 and Hannah Wentzel5

            In the included trials, ivermectin was largely investigated in mild/moderate participants. Overall, 16 trials were either single or double-blinded and 7 were open-label.

            The primary meta-analysis was carried out by excluding studies at a high risk of bias. Ivermectin did not show a statistically significant effect on survival (risk ratio [RR], 0.90; 95% CI, 0.57 to 1.42; P = .66) or hospitalizations (RR, 0.63; 95% CI, 0.36 to 1.11; P = .11). Ivermectin displayed a borderline significant effect on duration of hospitalization in comparison with standard of care (mean difference, –1.14 days; 95% CI, –2.27 to –0.00; P = .05). There was no significant effect of ivermectin on time to clinical recovery (mean difference, –0.57 days; 95% CI, –1.31 to 0.17; P = .13) or binary clinical recovery (RR, 1.19; 95% CI, 0.94 to 1.50; P = .15).

            NB – This was reported before one of the “positive” studies was withdrawn based on data fraud.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Mr david Porter,

            Your pet typed: citation which even he might be able to comprehend

            A youtube video of the avuncular, John Campbell as “proof” of something.

            Campbell is entitled to his opinion on ivermectin, but his opinion is not supported by the evidence.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Rimjob is almost Pavlovian in his response.
            Calling a respected MD avuncular because he explained how Ivermectin and “new” Pfizer oral drug, PAXLOVID, treat the infected cells in the same way as a protease inhibitor.

            Please show us how stupid you are to be disputing that.

            Bwaha! Lolgf

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Spitroast doesn’t even know what “avuncular” means, LOL. Mr Campbell is not a medical doctor, but IS a nurse. He’s not dumb, is likable and kindly, sort of like your favorite uncle, but is just wrong about ivermectin.

            We think we explained this once before… the Pfizer anti-viral is orders of magnitude more potent against the Covid protease than ivermectin. What is the practical import of this, you ask. Well, after oral administration the Pfizer drug reaches plasma concentrations that block the activity of the protease, while ivermectin does not. IF ivermectin works, it’s unlikely by inhibiting the key protease.

            Try again.

      • L.G.Brandon says:

        Dowd: US counties that went for tRump have Covid death rates 7 times greater than counties that voted for President Biden. 7 times.

        Are you really dumb enough to believe that a disease attacks people based on how their county voted in an election? You lefties really do believe in all kinds of myths and sorcery. This is right up there with your belief that all non leftist whites are white supremacists hiding under your bed.

        How exactly does that work? Do little Covid molecules float around until they enter a county that supported Trump then attack like little Maxine Waters’ at a Qanon convention?

        No standard cloth or paper mask will stop a microbe. Period.

        We know your old tricks. Do something stupid and when it doesn’t work just do it again. The old definition of insanity which is how you lefties are sounding now about Covid.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Brandon: Are you really dumb enough to believe that a disease attacks people based on how their county voted in an election?

          Are you a complete idiot? Or just kinda an idiot? That’s not what we claimed was it? The DEATH rate was much higher in tRump counties (hint: rural) than in those that went for President Biden.

          The vaccination rate in tRump strongholds is much lower than in President Biden counties. That may have something to do with it. Sad but true, but urban and suburban areas usually have better health care services in general. St Louis has much better hospitals than does Piedmont MO. Dems/liberals are more likely to follow the other guidances, eg, masking and social distancing. Rural Americans have higher rates of poverty, less access to healthcare, and are less likely to have health insurance. Rural Americans have higher incidences of co-morbities – eg, COPD, obesity, uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes, heart problems – than do urban Americans. This all adds up.

          Our conservative friends are performing a disservice to their fellow Americans by discouraging vaccinations.
