1/ At the FDA meeting— the topic of global vaccine equity was pushed away as an irrelevant consideration to their decision making This is reflective of a deeper problem— wealthy countries truly believe they can win if they just continue to protect themselves

Marks make very clear they will cut people off and redirect conversation if drfit too much into global vaccine equity or other issues FDA doesn't see as relevant to their decision making.

Yes, the vaccines ARE effective against the Delta variant. Yes, you will need both doses for maximum protection. Yes, they’re effective against preventing symptomatic infection, severe disease, AND hospitalization. Several studies have proven this now. Stop the misinformation.

More & more scientists are saying "we need to learn to live with COVID" instead of demanding COVID-zero (especially with delta). But if a 99% vax'd college campus from mandates (& no severe disease) cannot stop pursuing COVID-zero, that doesn't portend well for off-ramps.

This article I wrote w @jenkinshelen focused on forcing ourselves to ask a hard question: "What are our goals?" We used masks as one example, but could've used others In this thread I'll use Yale and their 99% vaxxed to ask "What are Yale's goals?" 1/n

Mu (B.1.621) is NOT vaccine resistant. Stop the misinformation. Fold-reduction in LIVE VIRUS studies is less that than of Beta, Gamma and Delta.

Does anyone besides me feel that the messaging over the last month in the US has basically served to terrify the vaccinated and make unvaccinated eligible adults doubt the effectiveness of the vaccines?

A list of micro aggressions to avoid with newly arrived Afghans: This is a delicate period of transition. As an Afghan American, & an academic who has studied the community, I urge you to avoid certain behaviors. These microaggression can be hurtful for our new neighbors.

Our immune systems - since they have not been stimulated for > 1 year - are not as primed to respond to other pathogens so we are seeing usually mild infections (rhinovirus) cause more severe disease now. Seeing mild pathogens stimulates immune diversity

NEW: people worry when they hear "40% of hospitalisations are fully vaxxed", but this chart shows that's actually good news. The more people you vaccinate, the higher their share of hospitalisations, but the *total* number in hospital is a fraction of what it would otherwise be

Anecdotes about someone vaccinated getting infected by COVID, and feeling poorly for a couple of days should be presented as 'good news' stories, and a triumph of science, not as portents of the Apocalypse.

Over the coming weeks and months, we can expect a large number of preprints and papers reporting 'breakthrough infections', i.e. infections in vaccinated individuals. 1/

A study out of the Netherlands shows while breakthrough infections with Delta have similar peak viral loads (Ct) to that of unvaccinated individuals, viral loads decrease faster in vaccinated individuals AND are LESS infectious than primary infections of unvaccinated individuals.

Add to this the data that vaccinated people also clear the virus much faster Plus it at least halves your chance of getting infected in the first place Being vaccinated doesn’t mean you can’t transmit, but it’s your best bet at protecting the people around you

Did you hear vaccinated people are just as infectious as unvaccinated with Delta? This study from Singapore shows not only do vaccines stop you getting sick with Delta, but also clear your viral load MUCH faster Vaccines make you less infectious 💥

Did you hear vaccinated people with Delta “have just as much virus in their nose so are just as infectious as unvaccinated”? Turns out vaccinated people have significantly less culturable virus present at the same Ct count They are LESS INFECTIOUS 💥

We vaccinate to prevent hospitalizations and save lives. We don't vaccinate for the common cold. The COVID vaccines are saving lives.

Doesn’t sit right that we’re approving third doses while people in so many other countries haven’t even had access to their first

There's a distinction between infection and disease state. SARS-CoV-2 is the causative agent of COVID-19. You cannot develop COVID-19 without infection with SARS-CoV-2. COVID-19 vaccines were quantified against COVID-19, not infection. They continue to show remarkable protection.
