Over here, I wrote about why the majority of England’s Covid-19 deaths are now from vaccinated people despite the fact that the vaccines continue work well, particularly in terms of protection from death.
There’s a ton of nuances one could (and I did 🙂 ) wade through, but TLDR is basically:
- There are just way more people that are vaccinated than unvaccinated in the UK. Over 93% of the English eligible population have had at least 1 dose.
- Those who are vaccinated tend to be older (and possibly have other high-risk conditions), making them much more vulnerable to dying from Covid if there is a brekathrough infection, which inevitably at times there is.
As soon as you control for just the difference in number of and age of people it becomes apparent that the vaccines still seem very effective at saving lives.
