Data Show Fully Vaccinated Getting COVID More Frequently Than Unvaccinated…Experts Critical of Boosters

Data from Germany’s Robert Koch Institute (RKI) show that fully vaccinated (2 doses + booster) are getting sick more than unvaccinated people.

Statistics expert Prof. Stefan Homburg here tweeted a chart comparing the number of illnesses for base vaccinated, boostered and unvaccinated:

Clearly, more fully vaccinated are getting sick with COVID than the unvaccinated.

“According to the RKI, vaccinated and even more so boostered people are more likely to contract Covid-19 than unvaccinated people!,” tweets prof. Homburg. “Because most caregivers are aged 18-59, their #vaccination requirement should be lifted or even banned.”

Experts critical of booster shots

Meanwhile the online Berliner Zeitung here reports experts are taking “a critical view of fourth Corona vaccination.”

“If you’re honest,” says Christoph Neumann-Haefelin, “it’s not a realistic goal to want to achieve complete protection by constantly boosting.” Instead, the head of the Translational Viral Immunology Group at the University Medical Center Freiburg recommends focusing on protection against severe disease. “When a person is infected, the T cells can ensure a mild course.” Just those cells in the bone marrow.

“In the end, the cells responsible for the immune response migrate to the bone marrow, where they survive in their niches for a lifetime,” reports the Berliner Zeiting.

“This process takes at least half a year,” Berlin Professor Andreas Radbruch explains. That’s at least how long you should wait with a booster vaccination, so as not to interrupt the maturation process, otherwise, “You’ll have more antibodies, but worse ones.”

    Completely irrelevant information pretending to be important.
    A waste of bandwidth.

    Covid vaccines do not prevent infections.
    Vaccinations actually encourage infections by convincing the vaccinated they are safe. As a result, they social distance less than the unvaccinated, or not at all.

    Among friends the behavior change was VERY obvious post-Covid vaccination. Some vaccinatd friends now have reckless zero social distancing behavior, as if they don’t care about infections. That has backfied on some of tham.

    One example: One double vaccinated 68 year old friend and her son recently caught Covid 19 on a vacation in Sedona, AZ. Her husband tested positive for Covid but has no symptoms — he is in excellent physical condition, but so was she — a lone female member of a bicycle club that thinks nothing of pedaling 30 miles to eat breakfast at a distant restaurant on a Sunday. She and her son have serious Covid symptoms right now,including loss of taste and smell, that lasted two weeks SO FAR, not the Omicron common cold milder symptoms that lasts a few days.

    Social distancing behavior changes easily explain why the vaccinated are more likely to be infected. The chart with this article shows EXACTLY what would is expected from social distancing behavior changes of the vaccinated. This article tells us nothing new. The click bait headline suggests a lot more than nothing new.

      No, vaccine status and behaviour is irrelevant. I am unvaccinated and just live my life as normal. No need for the idiotic social distancing or the ineffective mask-wearing and hand sanitising. I make sure my immune system is in perfect working order – helped of course by not being subject to vaccine damage – and am ready to treat myself should any covid symptoms occur.

      1. Richard Greene

        Social distancing is not idiotic.
        It works.
        You are wrong on the subject of social distancing,
        which applies to all infectious respiratory diseases.

        But you are misinformed, and healthy.
        Which is better than being informed, and unhealthy.

        Of course if you are healthy, and have a strong immune system (helped by being calm in the face of Covid scaremongering) your risk is low, but not zero.

        And social distancing refers to behaviors indoors, or on a train, plane or car with others close by. Not outdoors.

        With Omicron, social distancing seems to mean
        not being in the same home with an infected person,
        unless all the windows are open.

        Masks and hand washing do nothing for an airborne virus.

        EVERY friend (100%) who is vaxxed changed their behavior
        to reduce or eliminate social distancing. That should account for the vaxxed getting more Covid infections (but not a lot more)
        matching the chart in the article

        1. RobB

          Rubbish. Every unvaxxed person I know has also changed their behavior – they are also no longer restricted. So why havent their infection rates also gone up?

          Can you quantitatively prove anything you assert? Where is the research that shows that vaxxed and unvaxxed behave that differently?

          And now the latest UK data suggest you are more likely to die if you have been vaccinated:

    Social distancing and mask wearing are antisocial behaviors. They are to be desired only if one wishes to destroy, as is inevitable for the losers in any society.

    1. Richard Greene


      Social distancing reduces the spread of respiratory diseases.
      It has been used for centuries.
      It is considered pro-social behavior.

      People who feel sick stay home to avoid infecting others.
      Masks do nothing but irritate the wearer.

      People whose heath and age make them vulnerable to Covid
      benefit from social distancing from strangers whose health
      is unknown, and from friends who have any respiratory symptoms.

    Unvaccinated, never changed my social behavior. Never got covid.

    1. Richard Greene

      I’m unvaccinated, and did change my socials behavior.
      Never got Covid. Or Omicron. Never got influenza (for 68 years so far) and never got a cold (my last one was so many years ago I forgot when).

      So my anecdote cancels your anecdote,
      and now we are even.

      Of course you can only get Covid by being near a person who is infected.
      Did it ever occur to you that you were never near such a person?

    I tweeted this link on Titter and have been congratulated by twitter for achieving a 115 views. Not a lot but a sign of the new regime change.

  5. Phil Salmon

    Unvaccinated are much younger on average than the vaccinated groups.
    This explains why infection rates are higher in the older vaccinated people.
    Age has a bigger effect than vaccination on risk of infection.
    Comparing like for like – that is – matching for age, vaccination does protect against infection and against severe disease.

    1. John Brown

      Please check your comment for logic.
      If older people are more often vaccinated, the infection rate among the elderly people should be less. Unless of course you want to say, that the vaccination has no discernible effect, which is what is indicated in the data.

      Also please check the meaning of what a vaccine should do. If you can still get sick it failed. That the drugs offer a protection against a severe disease has also not shown in the data with waning effects after just weeks.

    2. RobB

      In the comparison matching for age – vaccination no longer protects, in fact it makes things worse, see my post of the 26th of April.
