The US Department of Health and Human Services released an ad where they claim China Coronavirus vaccines prevent nearly 100% of COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths.
An advertisement from the HHS appears to claim that the COVID-19 vaccines will prevent 100% of hospitalizations and deaths due to COVID. But how can they know this, let alone prove it?
The short 30-second advertisement shares the following:
Thanks for letting me know in clinical trials vaccines prevented nearly 100% of hospitalizations and deaths due to COVID.
The ad does use a caveat – “in clinical trials.” But there is no information on how many people were selected in their trials and how they reached their determination that the vaccines they tested basically prevent all hospitalizations and deaths due to COVID. They also use the word “nearly” and the definition of this too is not provided.
