COVID-19 Resurgence in hospitalisations and deaths is dominated by those that have received two doses of the vaccine.

UK scientists: "Resurgence in hospitalisations and deaths is dominated by those that have received two doses of the vaccine."

Hopes that life may soon be back to normal were dashed by Boris Johnson this week when he indicated that restrictions would remain in place to prevent a deadly third coronavirus wave. Predictably, the announcement relied on unduly pessimistic modelling, which suggested a full release from lockdown in June could trigger a new wave of hospital admissions every bit as bad as the January peak and result in up to 59,900 deaths...



Buried in the summary: "The resurgence in hospitalisations and deaths is dominated by those that have received two doses of the vaccine."
Yes, you did read that correctly. Third wave deaths will predominantly be driven by people who have been vaccinated




Well, that's not good!

"2. The resurgence in both hospitalisations and deaths is dominated by those that have
received two doses of the vaccine, comprising around 60% and 70% of the wave
respectively. This can be attributed to the high levels of uptake in the most at-risk age
groups, such that immunisation failures account for more serious illness than unvaccinated
individuals. This is discussed further in paragraphs 55 and 56."

A 0.000004% chance of developing a blood clot vs. 100% efficiency in preventing serious illness and hospitalisation?

I’ll take my chances..... :cool: (y)

Referring to the out of context thread title and posts responding mindlessly to the deliberate provocation/misinformation.

That may be a different nursing home I think. But even so, it states in the article that there was already an active covid outbreak in the facility. Any doctor will tell you that you do not administer a vaccine in those circumstances. What the hell were they thinking? It really irks me that all previous medical safety protocols have been abandoned in the rush to roll this out as quickly as possible.
