Dr. Ethan Toumishey, Director of Clinical Programs, told the Hasting Prince Edward Public Health board of health this week that among data for August, cases occurred five times more often in individuals who were not fully vaccinated compared to fully vaccinated individuals.

“However, it is important to note that 23 per cent of the local cases reported in the month of August did occur in fully vaccinated individuals – reiterating the need to remain vigilant, monitor for symptoms, and if symptoms occur – stay home and seek testing.”

Vaccination, he stated, remains the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Even when breakthrough infections occur in individuals who are immunized, these individuals are less likely to transmit the virus to others. In order to reduce the spread of the virus and reduce risks for even those who are fully vaccinated, everyone who is eligible should make a plan to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible,” Dr. Toumishey said.

In HPEPH the Delta variant is driving the current increase in case rates. In the month of August, 20 cases reported in HPEC were confirmed Delta variant and 26 cases were screened as likely to be Delta variant, for a total of 38 per cent of August cases.

“As the Delta variant is much more contagious than previous variants, even fully vaccinated individuals should maintain precautions when interacting with others who are not fully vaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown.”

    If one looks at the breakdown of cases, it is clear that the majority of infections are in people who have not been vaccinated. As well the bulk of the cases are in age groups that are eligible for the vaccine. Yet the anti vaxxers still rant and rage about their rights, conspiracies and call those of us who have followed medical advice, “sheep”. Too bad they don’t understand the concept of social responsibility.
