Astra Zeneca

Have you got severe disease?
Are you dead?

If the answer is no the vaccine works.
The twitter post said "95% effective against all infection". I was simply pointing out that it may not be, especially against the Delta variant. I said nothing about severity of illness. Look, I'm all for vaccination and of course, it's likely to have reduced the impact on me, but that simply wasn't my point. Why take my point and tried to undermine it by twisting it into a different point?

You must be in the 5% then 😜😜

I'm a bit hesitant to believe that it's 95% effective against all infections when in our house both the AZ vaccinated adults have contracted Covid (one of us with two doses). Perhaps the Delta variant has something to do with this however, which is probably not a factor in that Italian data.
I suspect their data won’t include the delta variant. I have a feeling AZ isn’t as good as Pfizer at stopping spread of it. I am in Canada and our numbers have plummeted as vaccines have gone up and we have focused entirely on getting the first doses in. We have pretty much universally used Pfizer.

The good news is deaths haven’t yet followed case numbers so if that carries on for the next couple of weeks there is no reason not to lift the restrictions
