You all know what 90% effective means?


That 10% of people who take the vaccine are still just as likely to get sick as an unvaccinated person, OR
20% of people who take the vaccine are only half as likely to get sick as an unvaccinated person, OR
50% of people who take the vaccine are only 20% as likely to get sick as an unvaccinated person.

They really do not know yet what proportion of people who take the vaccine could still get sick. It is all probabilities right now. But many people you know, including a family member, can get the vaccine and still have it not work. That part has been statistically proven as many people who have been vaccinated in the trial still contracted coronavirus and developed symptoms. They were just much less likely to.

What they do know is that the vaccine is slightly better than having everyone wear masks. But wearing a mask and having a vaccine is even better than that.
