Oh no....
Could be a cluster of vaccines damaged when transporting them to this nursing home and hopefully they’re still protected from serious symptoms

Yes, I assume this is the case. But it’s still bad that people are testing positive. Bad for transmission reasons and herd immunity.

Let’s see what the investigation shows.

Yes, I assume this is the case. But it’s still bad that people are testing positive. Bad for transmission reasons and herd immunity.

Could be it’s only an issue for seniors and transmission still less likely among young vaccinated people.

Still doesn't contradict 95% efficacy.

I'm no statistician, but wouldn't it be a statistical impossibility to have a cluster of cases in one specific place be part of 5% of millions?

*PG grasping at straws*

What's more likely, an issue with the way these specific vaccines were handled/administered, or an anomaly not replicated anywhere else?

So you actually are a statistician. It's more likely that the batch of doses in that location were faulty or misadministered. Or that the test results were faulty (also happens in batches). It's also possible that the 12 people who tested positive were all anomalies from the 5% - or that the vaccine bottle was mixed up with the Slivovitz bottle - but neither is materially likely.

This is either a testing glitch or a pretty serious problem.

Hopefully they are still protected from serious disease.

It doesn't note anything about being symptomatic.

A variant wouldn’t be such an unlikely anomaly.

Bh all are asymptomatic.

Or, the 5% is really 10%, of which old people are really at 25 or 30%. And this person was a real superspreader and instead of 36 infections we have 12 infections. And those infections are asymptomatic. So everything went exactly as planned
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

When were they exposed/tested? If it’s recent it’s possible they’ll develop symptoms.

The irony. US rushed Pfizer's vaccine through the approval process but Sputnik V is safe. Meanwhile Russia approved Sputnik V for the cred of having it approved sooner, when safety and efficacy data was not even available. Typical Russians...
