He further added that the immune system of vaccinated people is stronger to protect them against the virus. Although, few people may get infected and still be asymptomatic and others may get sick even with proper hospitalization. 

According to Barbara Ferrer, health director of Los Angeles County, the Delta variant proved to be a game-changer as 20% of the 4,000 new cases in the county were fully vaccinated people and were facing only mild symptoms. She added that vaccinated people are at lower risk against viruses as compared to unvaccinated people.
