Myth busting thread: Vaccines *do* reduce transmission- even with delta. Anyone who says otherwise (and I've seen many scientists say this recently to rationalise not vaccinating children!) is misinterpreting the evidence. Let me explain

Generally good thread, and pushes back against the liberal “The vaccines don’t work!” stuff, but the vaccines do actually reduce transmission (yes, even with Delta) in the infected by lower viral load, shorter infection period, and fewer viable viral particles in the upper respiratory tract.
So, not quite accurate. But does get the idea across that the vaccines actually do work. This is about the closest to truth we can probably expect out of even our best experts today, so good enough.
