A more accurate report would be that the Pfizer vaccine is expected to be effective for at least six months. Clinical trials have only been going on for six months or so, so longer term data simply isn't there.

From CNN:
The vaccine remains more than 91% effective against disease with any symptoms for six months, the companies said in a statement. And it appeared to be fully effective against the worrying B.1.351 variant of the virus, which is the dominant strain circulating in South Africa and which researchers feared had evolved to evade the protection of vaccines, the companies said. "The vaccine was 100% effective against severe disease as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and 95.3% effective against severe COVID-19 as defined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)," Pfizer and BioNTech said in a joint statement.

The findings indicate protection will last even longer than six months, vaccine experts said. "The information coming from Pfizer-BioNTech is good news with evidence that those enrolled in the clinical trials last year are still protected. So we know that immunity will not be short-lived," Dr. Peter Hotez, a vaccine expert and dean of the school of tropical medicine at Baylor College.

One down (Moderna), one to go. Eligible today, first vaccination today. Appointment for second vaccination already made. --Bob

Side effect report: localized soreness and achiness in my left upper arm. That’s it. —Bob

I got my second dose of freedom a little bit less than two hours ago. Just two weeks of waiting to go now. --Bob

There have been about 1000 cases in Arizona of fully vaccinated people getting Covid. :roll:

For fully vaccinated people, it appears that the risk of a "breakthrough" infection is a little less than 1 in 10,000 (although this is probably an undercount because some mild infections probably aren't being reported to CDC), the risk of hospitalization is a little less than 1 in 100,000, and the risk of death is a little more than 1 in a million. So the Arizona infection numbers seem high. How reliable is your source? --Bob

It's from the Arizona Department of Public Health. I don't want to be a statistic.

Arizona has around 2.8 million people vaccinated.
