THE HILL – It is inevitable that some people who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will still get a "breakthrough" infection, Anthony Fauci said Monday, because no vaccine is 100 percent effective.
A breakthrough infection is when a person contracts an illness despite being vaccinated against it.
Fauci noted that there will be hundreds, and maybe thousands of instances of completely vaccinated people getting infected with COVID-19.

Rand Paul calls Fauci a 'petty tyrant'
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) escalated his feud with the federal government's leading infectious diseases expert on Monday, calling Anthony Fauci a "petty tyrant" for suggesting Americans vaccinated against the coronavirus should not eat or drink indoors.
"Fauci continues to ignore 100 years of vaccine science," Paul wrote in a tweet Monday morning. "His only real theme is 'do what I say' even when it makes no sense."

Nearly 40% of US Marines are declining Covid-19 vaccinations, according to data provided to CNN on Friday by the service, the first branch to disclose service-wide numbers on acceptance and declination.

THE HILL – According to data from Johns Hopkins University, five states make up 44 percent of all new infections in the U.S. between March 29 and April 4, or about 197,500 cases out of about 452,000 cases nationwide.

Next up is Michigan, recording 47,036 new cases...
The New York State “Excelsior Pass” vaccine passport system already has the markings of a five alarm dumpster fire. It has massive security flaws, a shrinking customer base by design, it remains incredibly impractical, and it’s incredibly easy to manipulate.
The president of the Southern Baptist Convention posted a photo on Facebook last week of him getting the COVID-19 vaccine. It drew more than 1,100 comments — many of them voicing admiration for the Rev. J.D. Greear, and many others assailing him.
