People without covid shots are 5 times more likely to end up in hospitals and 10 times more likely to die

Public Health England statistics showed that unvaccinated residents of England are 5 times more likely to end up in a hospital bed with the Covid-19 coronavirus and 10 times more likely to die. According to scientists, those who have not been vaccinated risk dying, and even a relatively young age is not a protection.

New statistics from Public Health England show that the hospitalization rate for Britons aged 60 to 69 who have not been immunized is 94 cases per 100,000 people. Among those vaccinated, he was only 19.1 cases. People over 50 are 4 times more likely to be admitted to hospitals if they are not vaccinated. For example, among those who completed immunization, the hospitalization rate is 17 cases per 100,000 people, and among those who are not vaccinated, it is 80 per 100,000.

Serums, in all likelihood, provide a very high level of protection for the very old age of the British. Persons over 70 are three times less likely to end up in hospital with Covid-19. In other age categories, too, superiority at times.

But the benefits of vaccination are especially clearly visible when studying statistics on fatal cases. Unvaccinated people are almost 10 times more likely to die from Covid-19 than those who received two shots.

But with the number of infections, everything is somewhat different – the statistics are much more contradictory. The researchers believe this is due to the fact that the coronavirus protection obtained by vaccination weakens over time. At least this is one of the options for interpreting statistics. And vaccinated people in some age groups are already with the same (or even slightly more) likelihood of contracting the Covid-19 coronavirus as the unvaccinated.

Scientists believe that this is due to the fact that the Delta type of coronavirus markedly reduces the ability of immunization to prevent infections, although vaccinations are still suitable for the main purpose (they protect against severe illness and death).

Accordingly, according to these results, we can say that being vaccinated for personal health is very useful, but for the public good this no longer has a special meaning (therefore, it is no longer necessary to force to vaccinate). It is not yet possible to stop the coronavirus using existing sera, but there is a chance to reduce the number of deaths from it.
