The CDC's internal document, entitled "Improving communications around vaccine breakthrough and vaccine effectiveness", said the variant required a new approach in spreading awareness and imposing protocols as as unvaccinated people were more than 10 times more likely than those who are vaccinated to become seriously ill or die.
