Pfizer Booster Trial Data Shows Millions of Breakthrough Infections in U.S. by September
More Proof It's Been a Pandemic of the Vaccinated for Months
Pfizer’s press release touting the top line results from its ongoing phase 3 booster trial NCT04955626 shows millions of breakthrough infections over the summer; the vast majority of cases now fully vaccinated.
We’re told there are ~10,000 trial participants, who “previously received 2 doses of BNT162b2 at least 6 months prior,” and are randomized 1:1 placebo/booster, with “a median follow up of 2.5 months.” There were 109 symptomatic cases in the “non-boosted group,” and 5 symptomatic cases in the “booster group.”
Considering this data, it’s clear why public health “authorities” want everyone to take a booster. Notably, the rate of symptomatic infection among doubly vaccinated is now more than twice the rate the unvaccinated were symptomatically infected during Pfizer’s original trial, which paved the way for the EUA (0.79%, 172/21,686.)
Throughout the “pandemic” it seems the burden of proof is always and forever on the skeptic/dissenter, rather than on those making the extraordinary claims. While I’m not a statistician, I know some maths. Here’s my take:
If we go back to the start of Pfizer’s booster study, July 1, 2021, 159,737,658 Americans were fully vaccinated.
Per Worldometers, between July 1, 2021 and September 15, 2021 (2.5 Months), a total of 8,037,469 COVID-19 “cases” were reported; including both symptomatic and asymptomatic cases. While the exact proportion of cases without symptoms is a somewhat contentious matter, I will use the 35.1% from this meta-analysis on PNAS. This gives us a total of 5,216,317 symptomatic cases during the 2.5 month period.
By September 15, 2021, 2,512,654 fully vaccinated individuals had received booster shots. Using infection rate data from the Pfizer press release above, I calculate over 3.4 Million symptomatic breakthrough cases in the doubly and triply vaccinated.
Over the summer, when we were being told fairy tales about the “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” over 65% of symptomatic cases occurred in the fully vaccinated. (Who represented just 48.5% of the U.S. population on July 1, 2021)
There are a few shortcomings in my approach: The median time since dose 2 is shorter in my “Non-Booster Group” than in the Pfizer booster trial, the “Booster Group” was not a constant throughout the 2.5 month period, and the true number of asymptomatic cases is unknown. How long the “boost” effect lasts is obviously still unknown.
That said, the true number of asymptomatic cases (or just plain old false positives) could easily be much higher than 35.1%, and the number of infections in the partially-vaccinated is unknown but likely an even higher infection rate than the double vaxxed.
Pfizer’s data suggests that, even if we had vaccinated every last American by the end of May, without boosters we would be seeing 95,000 cases per day in the fully vacccinated by December 1st. (Less of course those who suffered coincideaths in the interim.)
In the end, I think it’s reasonable to conclude that at least 3.4 Million breakthrough cases occurred during the July 1 - September 15 period, and that almost all symptomatic COVID-19 is now occurring in individuals who have taken at least one jab. As the “vaccines” wane over the winter, and more Americans are coerced into being doubly vaccinated, these numbers are sure to be much worse. It’s a pandemic of the vaccinated from here on out.
