Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Pfizer and Moderna are 80% effective after the first dose and 94-95% effective after the second.  

At least according to the Infotainment Mediums.  I haven't been able to track down the (supposed) CDC study the Infotainment Reports are (supposedly) reporting.  Given journalists and editors exhibit almost total ignorance of science and technology take with salt.

Messenger RNA (mRNA) COVID-19 vaccines have been shown to be effective in preventing symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection in randomized placebo-controlled Phase III trials

The findings complement and expand upon these preceding reports by demonstrating that the vaccines can also reduce the risk for infection regardless of COVID-19-associated illness symptom status (4,5). Reducing the risk for transmissible infection, which can occur among persons with asymptomatic infection or among persons several days before symptoms onset (6), is especially important among health care personnel, first responders, and other essential and frontline workers given their potential to transmit the virus through frequent close contact with patients and the public.

(My) conclusion: vaccination does limit virus shredding by a-symptomatic persons and prevent high level of infection.
