Unvaccinated people are 11 times more likely to die of COVID-19, new research finds

Unvaccinated people are 11 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than those who are fully vaccinated, new research has found, bolstering evidence that the inoculations continue to provide powerful protection, even against the delta variant.

The latest studies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Friday also found that vaccinated people were nearly five times less likely to get infected and 10 times less likely to get so sick they ended up in the hospital.

The CDC “looked at COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths in 13 states and offers further evidence of the power of vaccination,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, said at a White House COVID-19 briefing on Friday.

“As we have shown, study after study, vaccination works,” she added.

However, the studies — which analyzed data from 600,000 Americans between April 4 and July 17 — suggest that the effectiveness of the vaccines may have dropped as the delta variant became dominant. One explanation could be waning immunity. A second is that the variant is better at evading the immune system. It also could be some combination of the two factors.

Another study examining data from nine states from June through August indicated that the Moderna vaccine may be the most effective of the three available in the United States.

The research found that across all ages, vaccine effectiveness was “significantly higher” among Moderna vaccine recipients — at 95% — than among Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients, with vaccine effectiveness of 80% and 60%, respectively.

As of Friday, White House officials said nearly 75% of eligible Americans — those 12 and older — have gotten at least their first shot, and the CDC reported about 54% of the total population is fully vaccinated.

    • U should really do your research before running on here with ur trigger happy fingers. Studies have shown that the vaccines are effective against the varients especially the oxford astrazeneca vaccine which has a 94% resistance rate y’all sickening now. Don’t know why Gaston Browne don’t leave y’all alone and make y’all drop down like flies maybe then y’all will be satisfied. Cause nothing seems to please yall. Gaston Browne just open up the country and when them run go hospital put some cardboard out in the parking lot make them lie down there and dead like dogs. Doctor nuff fu look pan them cause them say the doctors and them lie. Make them natural immune system work let see who live. #sickmatommack

    • Great to see that you have taken a few minutes away from your valuable scientific research to comment here, professor.

      “Those who survive will have natural immunity” – Err…sorry, no. Many people have caught this disease multiple times, highest recorded so far is one individual infected six times.

      “Those who survive…” – Great, so we only care about the fit & health in our society do we?? Let the infirm, sick, and elderly slip away is it? There used to be a German guy with a moustache like Gaston’s who thought the same way as you.

      “The vaccines are NOT effective against DELTA” – where did you get this data from Prof? Did you have to bend over and use a mirror by any chance?

    • Guy stop your ignorance. The very article in a study doneJune though augustt makes clear the vaccines are still very effective

  1. Based on 200o years of research everybody is likely to die from one thing or another.

    One man took the vaccine to stay alive just to be struck down by a van when he exited the pharmacy.

    The pensioners is likely to die from starvation after they take the vaccine to prevent death. What can of love for humanity is that, no relief for the pensioners?

    No body told Dr Fauci that the pensioners is not getting their much needed pension?

  2. Death is inevitable , Fear can be contagious, don’t worry about tomorrow live every day like it’s your last, if it’s not covid it will be suicide, starvation,Aids,stroke one will die. The vaccination will never end death

  3. Yeah, the vaccines do one thing right…they prevent cytokine storm in most persons, at least during the first nine months or so after inoculation. In some medical circles, there’s an explanation for the pattern of severe illness seen with COVID that involves a medical phenomenon called ADE (antibody dependent infection) driven by old coronavirus antibodies for the common cold. Basically, your immune system recognizes the virus as a coronavirus but then, in some people, resorts to using antibodies produced from prior exposure to the common cold coronaviruses to fight the infection. The problem is that coronaviruses are notorious for being able to use certain weakly binding antibodies to infect immune cells, eventually causing cytokine storm by destroying these cells, releasing massive amounts of cytokines stored in these cells. So the expectation would be that vaccination would provide a newer, more compatible set of antibodies with which to deal with the new infection, preventing the above mentioned issues from arising.

    The coronavirus mutates too quickly for anyone to have any lasting protection from getting an infection or from vaccination. More and more, it’s moving towards producing viral loads that your immune system will eventually not be able to counteract. It’s like a man with a gun trying to fight off five people vs trying to fight off a mob. He eventually loses that battle against the mob…and this virus is evolving into a mob vs the immune system. The best way to prevent infection is to stay away from other people. Unlike me, most people don’t have that option. So the next option should be to protect against severe outcome if you’re old enough to have older cold coronavirus antibodies and if you have a family history of diabetes or hypertension, no matter the age. That’s where the vaccine becomes the less risky option. Yeah, the vaccine was rushed…but it’s a rushed vaccine that doesn’t last inside your body. A vaccine that doesn’t last doesn’t have long term side effects because the immune antibodies fade away and can’t cause long term trouble such as autoimmune disease. That’s the one fact that makes it safe enough for me to consider. Ultimately it’s your call. But you should know that the risk isn’t just about death. There’s also morbidity to consider. To what extent will you recover? Long covid is what you should be worried about right now. I’m 200 percent convinced that long covid is actually active ongoing covid infection happening in multiple organs inside your body that cannot be detected by tests done on samples taken from your nose. Trust me, you don’t want this virus attacking cells in your organs and your immune system attacking and destroying cells in those infected areas. That’s a recipe for a much shorter lifespan. My goal with my own vaccination isn’t simply to prevent severe respiratory illness if the infection gets that far. It’s to give me at least a fighting chance against having this virus invade the rest of my body and hide there damaging my organs. You don’t get that from having no Covid antibodies in your bloodstream…which is what you do when you try natural immunity instead. Instead the virus gets to go all over your body using your bloodstream before your immune system can figure out what it’s fighting.
