Why isn't everyone vaccinated at Stanford? I thought that is now their policy.

Everybody (100%) is not a reasonable expectation and greater than 90% is excellent. Medically, it may not be advisable in specific cases. Remember, individuals do have a choice.

Quantum Bread, No, individuals should not have a choice when it comes to a Covid vaccine.
The Delta variant is very contagious and even fully vaccinated people can get infected. However, children, since they are not vaccinated, can get quite sick. We need to protect them too. EVERYONE absolutely should get a vaccine! I'm shocked that Stanford is not demanding that!

Does anyone know what % of Pfizer/Moderna vaccinated adults have caught covid? Expecting this to be quite small.

The clinical trials indicated there was going to be <8% chance of being infected even with the vaccination. Essentially, breakthrough cases were going to happen and we shouldn’t be surprised.

We should continue to celebrate that with these vaccines hospitalization and deaths have plummeted. We should be congratulating the scientists behind this - not the politicians or bureaucrats who continue to push their own agendas.
