The New York Governor has said that health workers will be fired unless they are vaccinated, saying that people who have been vaccinated "deserve to know that the people they're working with will not get them sick." https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/vi...hul-announces-covid-19-booster-doses-eligible

And here in Australia, our vaccine mandates would appear to be based on the same assumption, that the unvaccinated are a threat to people, whereas the vaccinated are not.

So the question arises: As it stands, is there a single SHRED of evidence that the vaccine significantly lowers transmission? I sure as hell cannot find any.

COVID vaccines cut the risk of transmitting Delta

"People who receive two COVID-19 jabs and later contract the Delta variant are less likely to infect their close contacts than are unvaccinated people with Delta."
"...[the] protective effect is relatively small, and dwindles alarmingly at three months after the receipt of the second shot."

"Unfortunately, the vaccine’s beneficial effect on Delta transmission waned to almost negligible levels over time. "

The answer to the the thread's title is: Yes.

Moreover, I have provided the evidence.

Continue to shift the goal posts, if you like - it won't change the fact that the answer, once again, is: Yes.

The question was: "As it stands, is there a single SHRED of evidence that the vaccine significantly lowers transmission?" I'll let you figure out where you went wrong.

And the answer is "Yes", as I have demonstrated.

Do you have any other questions?
I left it to you to figure out where you went wrong, but you failed SPECTACULARLY! I asked if there was evidence that the vaccine significantly lowers transmission. If you STILL can't figure it out, then there truly is no hope for you!

You do realise that the vaccine doesn't provide immunity, right?

if one were stupid enough they could certainly make the same argument about any vaccine.

NONE of them are guaranteed. All of them lessen the impact if you do catch the virus

Sorry, you think that there's a chance that these vaccines
provide immunity? Surely you can't be serious!
I certainly accept that they promote immunity. Are you just playing games with weasel words…? ‘Provide’ vs ‘promote’…? If so, play elsewhere…
