This is not the portrait of an ineffective vaccine. At this point approximately half of the US population is vaccinated. Using these numbers, an 8-fold reduction in the risk of symptomatic infection corresponds to approximately 88% vaccine effectiveness against symptomatic COVID. The 25-fold reduction in hospitalization and death each corresponds to 96% effectiveness.
