FALSE Claim by Ron Johnson (R): The COVID vaccine “has been proven to have negative efficacy.”

PolitiFact rating: False (The studies Johnson’s office sent examined COVID vaccine effectiveness, not efficacy. Efficacy refers to how well a vaccine performs in a clinical trial, and each of the vaccines were highly efficacious when they debuted. Even overlooking that, the claim is off base. The studies do demonstrate waning protection against an omicron infection, but they don’t mean that getting vaccinated caused an increased risk of infection.)
