Vaccination doesn't stop you catching covid, it (hopefully) reduces the effects.
Will the vaccine protect you?The COVID-19 vaccine that you have had has been shown to reduce the chance of you suffering from COVID-19 disease. Each vaccine has been tested in more than 20,000 people in several different countries and shown to be safe.It may take a week or two for your body to build up some protection from the first dose of vaccine. Like all medicines, no vaccine is completely effective, so you should continue to take recommended precautions to avoid infection. Some people may still get COVID-19 despite having a vaccination, but this should be less severe.Can you give COVID-19 to anyone if you have had the vaccine?The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19 infection, and a full course will reduce your chance of becoming seriously ill. We do not yet know whether it will stop you from catching and passing on the virus, but we do expect it to reduce this risk. So, it is still important to follow the guidance in your local area to protect those around you.To protect yourself and your family, friends and colleagues you still need to:practice social distancingwear a face maskwash your hands carefully and frequentlyfollow the current guidance
But even if you have been vaccinated, you should still get urgent medical help if you're bitten or scratched by an animal that may have had rabies
Your first comment was that you didn't know any vaccine that wasn't effective (or something along those lines)
At least on this thread no one is advocating to ignore the lockdown anymore. I suppose the equivalent of 3 to 4 jumbo jets falling out of the sky daily just from this country is quite sobering. It’s a global problem that requires global success. Conspiracy, fake news, lies and cover ups from a Wuhan to Washington are the worlds enemy, along with jingoism. Time to work together.

What follows is speculative and hugely oversimplified (but there is reasonable evidence to support it).
A couple of jumbo jets worth a day is normal for this time of year, there may be around one extra jumbo jets worth than normal right now
