The CDC recently published a study demonstrating the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines in protecting people from contracting COVID-19, including the now dominant and more contagious Delta variant. The study also demonstrates that, for the few vaccinated people who do contract COVID-19, the vaccines significantly reduce the risk of hospitalization or death from COVID-19. 

In Alameda County, the COVID-19 case rate is approximately 3 times higher among unvaccinated cases compared to vaccinated cases.
