Dear Anti-Vaxxers

Dear anti-vaxxers and "show us the real data" advocates, Alberta has the best data anywhere on Covid

  • Since Jan 1, 2021, 0.2% of people with one dose (5,597/2,847,380) were diagnosed with COVID-19 14 days after the first immunization date
  • Since Jan 1, 2021, 0% of people with two doses (937/2,482,401) were diagnosed with COVID-19 14 days after the second immunization date
  • 94.7% of cases (125,376/132,373) since Jan 1, 2021 were unvaccinated or diagnosed within two weeks from the first dose immunization date
  • 92.1% of hospitalized cases (5,270/5,719) since Jan 1, 2021 were unvaccinated or diagnosed within two weeks from the first dose immunization date
  • 86.9% of COVID-19 deaths (692/796) since Jan 1, 2021 were unvaccinated or diagnosed within two weeks from the first dose immunization date

Demanding a Reasonable Comparison

Alberta Results

The Alberta data shows 87% to 95% effectiveness vs US numbers which show 99%. 

Some of that difference is undoubtedly due to Canada partially using a vaccine that's  less effective than the two used in the US.

Four Questions of the Day

  • Isn't 86% good enough? 
  • Can anyone refute those numbers? 
  • Does anyone fail to understand the implications?
  • Does anyone fail to see why it's important when the second shot was administered?

Bonus Chart - Highly Vaccinated States

Highly Vaccinated States

The above chart is from the WSJ article Highly Vaccinated States Keep Worst Covid-19 Outcomes in Check as Delta Spreads

  • Every state with a higher vaccination rate the US overall had a lower hospitalization rate (20 states)
  • Every state with a higher hospitalization rate then the US average had a lower vaccination rate(13 states)

Key Questions

  1. Dear doubters, what is it about the Alberta data you fail to understand?
  2. Dear doubters, what is it about the WSJ chart that you fail to understand?
  3. Will this change any minds?

We will soon enough see preposterous explanations and rebuttals to questions 1 and 2.

It's easy to answer question 3 right now and that answer is few, if any.

Why?

  • Many of the Anti-Vaxxers are the new Flat Earthers No amount of data will convince them of anything. 
  • Most of the rest base their case on preposterous conspiracy theories or belief they are in some sort of valid anti-government protest. They too will concoct excuses.

For further discussion of very similar US data, please consider 70% in US Have at Least 1 Vaccination Shot, Who are the Holdouts?

OK flat-earthers have at it.
