Unvaccinated people were 11 times more likely to die of covid-19, CDC report finds

Source: Washington Post

People who were not fully vaccinated this spring and summer were over 10 times more likely to be hospitalized, and 11 times more likely to die of covid-19 than those who were fully vaccinated, according to one of three major studies published Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that highlight the continued efficacy of all three vaccines amid the spread of the highly contagious delta variant.

A second study showed the Moderna coronavirus vaccine was moderately more effective in preventing hospitalizations than its counterparts from Pfizer-BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson. That assessment was based on the largest U.S. study to date of the real-world effectiveness of all three vaccines, involving about 32,000 patients seen in hospitals, emergency departments and urgent care clinics across nine states from June through early August.

While the three vaccines were collectively 86 percent effective in preventing hospitalization, protection was significantly higher among Moderna vaccine recipients (95 percent) than among those who got Pfizer-BioNTech (80 percent) or Johnson & Johnson (60 percent). That finding echoes a smaller study by the Mayo Clinic Health System in August, not yet peer reviewed, which also showed the Moderna vaccine with higher effectiveness than Pfizer-BioNTech at preventing infections during the delta wave.

Noting the effectiveness of all vaccines against severe illness and death, public health officials have continued to urge people to get whatever vaccine is available, rather than to shop around and delay inoculation. “The bottom line is this: We have the scientific tools we need to turn the corner on this pandemic," CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said at a White House covid-19 briefing Friday. “Vaccination works and will protect us from the severe complications of covid-19.”

3. I think it ended up depending on the time period that the studies covered

since Delta only recently hit the scene in a big way. So I think the earliest vaccinated participants probably had the higher likelihood of not being hospitalized when other strains were more prominent and as Delta began to proliferate, that started to change, but was still not only non-trivial, but was found to continue to be significant when compared to the unvaccinated.

ETA - I think there have been different numbers thrown out regarding "hospitalizations" vs "deaths" (the latter which this headline is focusing on).

7. We all knew sooner rather than later Mother Nature

was going to resolve the conflict between disease and deniers. The deniers were always going to be on the losing end.

8. Breaking it down by states, anti-vax states are being hit much harder

And of course that correlates with politics. Covid cases are rising in red states, dropping in blue states.

Looked at the pandemic numbers again and the gap between vaccinated and unvaccinated states is really striking — and overlaps with party. Impossible to separate party from the pandemic.
Analysis | The inescapable overlap of pandemic and politics
Combatting the pandemic is made harder because it indisputably overlaps with partisanship.

Red states are doing much worse now than they were at this point in 2020 and blue states are doing much better. https://washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/09/10/inescapable-overlap-pandemic-politics/
