"The vaccine has no significance regarding severe illness, which is why just twenty percent of our patients are unvaccinated," he said.
Israel has now moved on to its fourth dose of vaccines for some citizens despite indications that these are ineffective against the omicron variant.
Giris said that there is also some confusion in reporting the cases. "Defining a serious patient is problematic. For example, a patient with a chronic lung disease always had a low level of oxygen, but now he has a positive coronavirus test result which technically makes him a 'serious coronavirus patient,' but that's not accurate," he said. "The patient is only in a difficult condition because he has a serious underlying illness."
Due to the critical nature of COVID-19, governments allowed for vaccine procurement deals without worrying too much about pricing or data-sharing arrangements. Upon the commencement of the jab administration, Israel was only using Pfizer to vaccinate a large section of its population, serving as a "world lab" for the company.
"We knew that it is very appropriate for humanity to be able to select one country so that we can demonstrate what the vaccination of the people can do to the health index, the health of the people," Bourla said about the vaccinations.
By March 2021, Pfizer revealed their plans to allow teenagers ages 12 to 15 to begin receiving their vaccinations within the next six months, with younger children ages five to 11 getting their own doses by the end of the year. (Related: Data show COVID vaccines are a "spectacular failure.")
However, the efficacy of the Pfizer vaccines was in question only four months later due to another outbreak in Israel, which involved the transmission of the infection from a fully vaccinated COVID patient to 16 healthcare workers, 23 exposed patients and two family members.
The vaccination rate among the exposed individuals was at 96.2 percent, with 151 healthcare workers and 97 patients, 14 of which became severely ill or died. Only two unvaccinated patients developed a milder version of the disease.
This issue was said to have been caused by the waning efficacy of the vaccine a few months after its administration. Reports of breakthrough infections also increased, challenging the assumption that high universal vaccination rates would eventually lead to herd immunity.
In the Israel study, all transmissions between patients and staff occurred between vaccinated and masked individuals. This means that even back in July 2021, there is something to learn about Israel's vaccination program, and it's that vaccination did not prevent COVID-19 outbreaks. Despite 96.2 percent of the exposed population being vaccinated, it did not stop the infection from advancing rapidly with high viral loads.

The numbers are not unique to Israel. The British government also claimed that children are 52 times more likely to die following COVID vaccination, and mortality rates were greater in younger age groups that received two doses of the vaccine.
New South Wales, which has a 91.5 percent vaccination rate for qualified individuals, found that it did not deter cases from skyrocketing to unprecedented levels since its previous peaks in September 2021.
For the unvaccinated, COVID cases remain treatable, with 99.4 percent of unvaccinated individuals above 12 years found to be able to recover from the disease. Moreover, unvaccinated children under 18 also have a minor death rate of only 0.1 percent.
