yes, @PaulSaxMD, we can live with a 5th coronavirus that causes cold-like symptoms but we cannot live with one that causes severe disease, hospitalizations and death like SARS-CoV-2 did before vax and does in unvax'd. https://t.co/yJIzHImDdm

Yes, with such a supersensitive test as PCR, we should have either 1) incorporated CT values every time from the beginning; 2) quickly changed from this test. Now that it is "gold standard", creating much confusion when testing vaccinated. https://t.co/9ThrsYPubY

I am appreciating all of this commentary to get the vaccine to make it non-political. https://t.co/DsYKb89JU7

Believe the CDC meeting is this week to assess 3rd dose in this population at risk for severe breakthroughs, @Boghuma https://t.co/UJoLYl5Ra7

That is helpful information, @PAdamsonMD. Agree we now need unvaccinated population like that table we are using in our hospital https://t.co/MAFBwqiFYi

The vaccines were developed during the time of the previous administration and distributed during the current administration so shouldn't be political. https://t.co/8ycVarNtCC

Completely agree @linseymarr - an "off ramp" for mandates (masks can always be used freely by anyone) increases acceptance. We have proposed metrics for many months now (or targets) based on hospitalization+ vax rate in community https://t.co/fQpHy3K7sN

A nice article by Washington Post "The rate of covid deaths among vaccinated people barely compares to the exponentially higher rate among unvaccinated people...We’re talking history-making, world-saving efficacy." Article proposes what I said yesterday https://t.co/QvwTLA4ukl

Explanation of why most experts think long COVID from breakthrough unlikely as discussed by @CarlosdelRio7 yesterday. Will put data together after 7/26 but natural infection induces irregulated innate immunity; immunity after vax is adaptive towards virus https://t.co/MZSk96Iglq

Yes, all of the COVID patients in my hospital (still staying low) in SF are unvaccinated - thanks https://t.co/lGogOvI68r

Let's watch Italy 60% 1st dose rate, 45% full vaccination rate. Cases going up, deaths staying very low. Delta likely so much more transmissible (1000 higher viral loads per 1 study) that vax'd may get exposed. If no symptoms, no test; dead virus in nose https://t.co/m2h9ng6Ibb

Thread by @kmpanthagani: People are looking at the percent of vaccinated hospitalizations and getting alarmed. But by itself, this number can't tell you much about how the vaccines are working, as it's highly depen...… https://t.co/eSbyOxZaTS

Nice tool on vaccine effectiveness: "Media figures often make statements like, ``Half of the people hospitalized for COVID were vaccinated,'' which can mislead us about vaccine effectiveness if we don't know the underlying vaccination rate" Please try it https://t.co/3HOJNEyH0t

Thought I am very sorry to hear, @PAdamsonMD, you just had your immune response majorly primed by that mild infection. Feel better very soon! https://t.co/Q4QBafcbSf and https://t.co/918idHuKJr https://t.co/JAvsN9Ikix

Yes, I saw only 1 patient <60 in hospital fully vax'd in Israel- really wanted to tweet to reassure (remember, both Israel & US deciding who needs 3rd shot immunosuppressed/very elderly; looks hard to get sick with delta when fully vax'd, <60, without many co-morbidities). https://t.co/ctCEYF7Vkf

“The tragedy of the pandemic is that it could have been under control by now if vaccines had been distributed equitably” says @DrTedros @iocmedia

This is a tragedy for the United States, where COVID19 hospitalizations and deaths continue to rise, and for the rest of world which has been clamoring for access to life-saving vaccines. https://t.co/3bcOYILQlg

"No vaccine is perfect and we will continue to see breakthrough infections...they'll mostly be mild or asymptomatic and really they're not of huge concern for the individual," Dr. @johnbrownstein says about breakthrough COVID-19 cases.https://t.co/89rGo4QEuG

PEPFAR Is Still Without a Leader. H.I.V. Activists Want to Know Why. https://t.co/WCtO9qpb6O Me and others spoke to @apoorva_nyc about what a missed opportunity is not having a @PEPFAR leader. Great line from @gregggonsalves “Can we not think and act on two pandemics at a time?”

Nearly 1800 San Franciscans were hospitalized for COVID-19 over the last 7 months. Only 6 were vaccinated. All of the rest were unvaccinated. #GetVaccinated

@davidbautistaqf I’ll go based off the larger real-world data studies here. https://t.co/2F1IxbSe4o

@davidbautistaqf Other issue is, this isn’t live virus like the recent data out of South Africa we spoke of weeks ago. It’s pseudovirus. It literately shows little to no neutralization against Beta (B.1.351) in this study and yet we KNOW for a fact this vaccine works against that variant.

The people who are getting sick with COVID-19 are those who haven't been fully vaccinated, says @IDHW

How might the Bay Area get more people vaccinated? Dr. @MonicaGandhi9 says: ✔️Misinformation has to be controlled ✔️FDA approval on vaccines ✔️Community-based messaging Read all of her recommendations: https://t.co/YllNtWTTwZ @KQEDnews

Covid cases continue to rise sharply in UK as Delta sweeps through, but hospitalizations and deaths continue to be decoupled from the rising spread when viewed relative to similar points in other waves of infection — reflecting protection of most vulnerable through vaccination.
