Dr. Scott Atlas, who served briefly as a pandemic adviser to President Trump, contended Friday there is no reason for people under 30 who have almost no risk of serious illness or death from COVID-19 to be vaccinated.

According to Dr. Atlas, data shows the vaccines are good at protecting people from death and serious illness, and the efficacy lasts, according to a recent study from Sweden.

But after four months, studies show, people who have been fully vaccinated are not protected from becoming infected and from spreading the virus," said Atlas, a senior fellow in health care policy at Stanford University's Hoover Institution and a former professor and chief of neuroradiology at the Stanford University Medical Center..

That means, Atlas said, "it's a personal protection, not really a public protection to get vaccinated." And therefore, he continued, people should be allowed to decide for themselves whether or not to take the vaccine.
