Friday, the CDC released new studies highlighting how effective the shots are at preventing infections, hospitalizations and deaths — even with highly contagious Delta variant.

“As we have shown, study after study, vaccination works,” said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at a White House Covid briefing on Friday.
