New York City Health Officials Admit Omicron Subvariant Is More Likely to “Infect” Vaccinated People – And Yet Continue to Urge Residents to Get Vaccinated

Health officials in New York City are alerting its vaccinated residents or those previously infected with COVID-19, stating they “may be” at a higher risk of contracting the infectious Omicron subvariant XBB.1.5.

In December, New York City health officials are “strongly urging” residents to wear face masks indoors or among crowds as ‘tridemic’ cases rise.

NYC Health Commissioner Ashwin Vasan said in a statement that “vaccination, boosters, and wearing a mask indoors” can help stop the spread of the virus.

“While respiratory viruses are spreading at high levels in NYC, there are common-sense ways to protect yourself and your loved ones this holiday season: vaccination, boosters, wearing a mask indoors or among crowds and staying home if you don’t feel well,” said Vasan.

On Friday, NYC Health Officials issued a warning to residents that those who have been vaccinated against or previously infected with COVID-19 may be at a higher risk of being infected with Omicron subvariant XBB.1.5.

“Omicron subvariant XBB.1.5 now accounts for 73% of all sequenced COVID-19 cases in NYC,” the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

“XBB.1.5 is the most transmissible form of COVID-19 that we know of to date and may be more likely to infect people who have been vaccinated or already had COVID-19.”

The health department, however, maintained its campaign urging residents to get vaccinated and get updated booster shots.

“Getting vaccinated and getting the updated booster is still the best way to protect yourself from hospitalization and death from COVID-19, including from these new variants.”

This trend, in which most vaccinated persons become infected with COVID, is occurring all throughout the world.

We were told the experimental COVID vaccines were going to “stop the spread” and “prevent death and hospitalization.”

In Australia, the New South Wales government website released its daily Covid update. Based on its daily report, most of the people who died with COVID-19 were vaccinated.

According to New South Wales‘ epidemiological weeks 51 and 52, ending December 31, 2022, 86% of the deaths and 80% of hospitalizations were vaccinated.

Only 6% of the death rate is unvaccinated, and zero hospitalization.

A total of 1,415 Covid vaccine recipients and 364 individuals whose status was unknown required hospitalization.

A total of 105 Covid vaccine recipients and 35 individuals with unknown status were admitted to the ICU.

A total of 82 Covid vaccine recipients died from Covid, and 7 with unknown status.
