“I’m not alarmed by this. You know, think about the millions of people who’ve already been vaccinated,” said Dr. Jose Mayorga, the executive director of UCI Health Family Health Center. “We need to understand the full picture and if there are some patterns around this.” … The CDC and doctors still say getting fully vaccinated is still the best option for preventing the spread. “Not being vaccinated puts you at a higher risk of being hospitalized or even perish from this infection,” Mayorga said.
