An overwhelming majority of individuals contracting the Omicron coronavirus variant in the U.S. are “fully vaccinated,” according to the Center for Disease Control.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), only 20% of COVID-19 cases caused by the Omicron variant identified in the U.S. were in people who are unvaccinated. Out of the 43 cases attributed to the Omicron variant, 34 people infected with the virus had been “fully vaccinated.”
Out of the 34 vaccinated individuals who had contracted the Omicron variant, one third of them had received a booster injection.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that of the 43 cases attributed to Omicron variant, 34 people had been fully vaccinated. Fourteen of them had also received a booster, although five of those cases occurred less than 14 days after the additional shot before full protection kicks in.
While the numbers are very small, they add to growing concerns that current COVID-19 vaccines may offer less protection against the highly transmissible new variant.
British scientists from the University of Oxford have indicated that “increased infections” in vaccinated people “may be likely” after their study found that the two-dose COVID-19 vaccine regimens induce lower antibodies against the Omicron variant.
Despite early evidence suggesting that the COVID-19 vaccines, which already do not prevent individuals from contracting or spreading coronavirus, are less effective against the Omicron variant, the highly unpopular Biden regime medical advisor Anthony Fauci came out in opposition to citizens making “their own choice” with “free will” regarding vaccines and multiple booster shots, calling for the government to enforce laws that would “clearly supersede individual choices” as they relate to bodily autonomy, National File previously reported.

“I would prefer, and we all would prefer that people would be voluntarily getting vaccinated, but if they’re not gonna do that, sometimes you’ve got to do things that are unpopular, but that clearly supersede individual choices and are directed predominantly at the communal good,” Fauci stated.
