That has nothing to do with variants. The vaccines don't prevent you from getting covid and were never 100% effective at preventing hospitalisations or death accross the entire popujlation. The Johnson and Johnson was as low as 70% IIRC. But even in those cases the IFR has been reduced to that of a flu. If we had 100% fully vaxxed ICU and hopsital numbers would be half what they are now. This is how it was supposed to work.

Fully vaccinated people are getting infected, getting sick and dying. Most of these seem to be in the most vulnerable categories.
So I still don’t know where the claim of BS comes from.
you have waning immunity from the vaccines. So in summary, breakthrough infections = infections. That's the BS part. Breakthrough infections is the new long covid.
