This does not distinguish between those with vaccination immunity and natural immunity – just that they are shown to have antibodies to Covid-19 (does not include those with T-cell immunity either).

In England, it is estimated that around 9 in 10 adults, or 89.8% of the adult population (95% credible interval: 88.2% to 91.3%) would have tested positive for antibodies against coronavirus (COVID-19) – SARS-CoV-2 – on a blood test in the week beginning 14 June 2021, suggesting they had the infection in the past or have been vaccinated.

In Wales, it is estimated that 9 in 10 adults, or 91.8% of the adult population (95% credible interval: 90.1% to 93.3%) would have tested positive for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 on a blood test in the week beginning 14 June 2021, suggesting they had the infection in the past or have been vaccinated.

In Northern Ireland, it is estimated that close to 9 in 10 adults, or 87.2% of the adult population (95% credible interval: 84.2% to 90.2%) would have tested positive for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 on a blood test in the week beginning 14 June 2021, suggesting they had the infection in the past or have been vaccinated.

In Scotland, it is estimated that over 8 in 10 adults, or 84.7% of the adult population (95% credible interval: 82.4% to 86.9%) would have tested positive for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 on a blood test in the week beginning 14 June 2021, suggesting they had the infection in the past or have been vaccinated.

An observation – even when you are vaccinated, you are still subject to contracting the disease. A vaccine is not a wall around you that prevents the disease from entering your nose – you still get the disease but once you get the disease, the vaccine has primed your body to respond rapidly. So rapidly that you may not notice any symptoms or you may have mild symptoms such as a mildly stuffy nose.

Because many areas test everyone, regardless of vaccine status or symptoms, they may be detecting “positive test results” in persons for whom the vaccines are doing exactly what they are supposed to do.

Many “positive” cases in the vaccinated are meaningless numbers. Some are calling for a new metric focus: hospitalizations.

That this works this way seems obvious but I am a brain injured idiot. I make observations and ask really stupid questions.

Update: Oh my. The “experts” just said what this brain injured idiot said. Yeah, you can get sick but it mostly doesn’t matter for most people (but some, especially elderly and weak immune system may have bad outcomes). No one knows if asymptomatic vaccinated will pass on to others – but may be low probability.
