    In this article we will get straight to the point and go over the details provided by the manufacturer (specifically Pfizer, with sources for information on the Moderna vaccine at the end as well) based on the vaccine package insert, published phase 3 clinical trial, and FDA Briefing document.
    We will cover ingredients, effectiveness and how it was evaluated, and safety, including reports of adverse events since administration of the vaccine began in December.

    Important excerpt, about halfway through the article:

    Source: Phase 3 Clinical Trial. https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2034577
    Pfizer’s phase three trial was designed to determine if the vaccine may prevent (or suppress) symptoms, but not infection. Therefore, it is not known whether or not the vaccine actually prevents (asymptomatic) infection or transmission.
    Why is this important?
    First, the ability of a vaccine to suppress symptoms of infection, but not prevent infection itself, is not an indication or measure of immunity. If an individual is infected with a virus while displaying no symptoms of that infection, that makes them an asymptomatic carrier. Immunity develops with an immune system response. Typically, symptoms are the sign of that immune system response.
    Second, although it wasn’t initially studied, the FDA discovered several decades after current pertussis vaccines were put into use, that the pertussis vaccine does not prevent infection or transmission and that vaccinated asymptomatic carriers have actually contributed to pertussis outbreaks.
    Third, if the COVID vaccine does not prevent infection or transmission, and only suppresses symptoms, then herd immunity is not possible with this vaccine, even if 100% of the population receives it.
    This is precisely why Dr. Fauci and others have stated that regardless of whether or not you receive the vaccines, you will still be expected to wear masks, social distance, avoid gatherings, etc. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-...e-covid-19-vac

    If I ever take a vaccine, I would still stay wearing mask maybe my whole life, depending on how worse this virus mutation will become in the future.
