In a time when the delta variant of the COVID-19 virus is rapidly gaining traction, full vaccination offers a much better firewall against infection than partial vaccination. Dr. Michael Worobey, virologist at the University of Arizona and BIO5 member, agrees the virus has not run out of moves. Experiments found that fully vaccinated people — with the recommended regimen of two shots of the Pfizer-BioNTech or AstraZeneca vaccine — should retain significant protection against the delta variant.
