COVID-19 Delta Variant on the Rise in Iceland Despite Incredibly High Vaccination Rate

The various available vaccines likely have different adverse effect and efficacy profiles

From on August 10, 2021:

Some 96 per cent of all Icelandic women over 16 have received at least one vaccine dose. The figure for men is about 90 per cent.

In total, 86 per cent of the population has been fully vaccinated. 

It is an outstanding result – so much so, the Reykjavík government felt they had this pandemic beaten.

In June, they rolled back social distancing, mask and travel restrictions.

But those restrictions have been reimposed as a Covid-19 Delta outbreak has sent case numbers soaring.

And even with a significantly reduced rate of severe illness, the explosive outbreak is seriously straining the tiny nation’s health system.

I was vaccinated against tetanus, polio, rubella, whooping cough, and measles: and I never came down with any of those infections. Not even mild forms of them.

It’s starting to look like the COVID-19 vaccines aren’t all they were promised to be.
