We also don't need to over simplify it either. There is plenty of evidence that shows vaccinated individuals have a much lower transmission rate than unvaccinated. Yes they can transmit it, but most studies are showing a 70%+ reduction of transmission of the Alpha variant of COVID-19 by vaccinated individuals and a 60%+ reduction in transmission of the Delta variant. The Omicron variant is a wild card, because there are some small sample size studies that came out in the last couple of weeks that show Omicron reduces the antibodies of and is more likely to infect folks who have had the Pfizer vaccine (these study subjects were not boosted). Without more evidence it's hard to know what the surge is caused by and the best course of action for reducing infection. That said there are some pretty simple steps like getting vaccinated, boosted, using masks indoors, hand washing, social distancing, etc that will help until there is more info.Vaccinated people can transfer the virus too guys. We don’t need to over complicate it.
