I am not sure if this is paywalled or not. Covid coverage often is not.
The main point is that the CDC has been tracking booster effectiveness since October 3. Data from Oct and Nov 2021 shows the unvaccinated DIED at a rate of 7.8 deaths per 100,000 PER WEEK. The comparable rate for the vaccinated was 0.6 and for the boosted – wait for it – 0.1. In short, you were 78x more likely to die if unvaccinated vs the boosted.
The story also covers new polling of adults from the Kaiser Family Foundation on vaccination vs political affiliation.
Unvaccinated: Democrats = 9% Republicans = 36%.
Boosted: Democrats = 62% Republicans = 32%.
There are more Republicans unvaccinated than there are Republicans fully protected. That is insane.
Finally, the article includes this tragic statistic: “Dr. Peter Hotez, a vaccine expert at the Baylor College of Medicine, estimates that in the second half of last year, 200,000 Americans needlessly lost their lives because they refused Covid vaccines.”
Covid lies and misinformation are murderous. It is that simple.
