ATLANTA, Georgia, USA - Unvaccinated people are 11 times more like to die from COVID-19 according to a new study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday, September 10, 2021.

The study also found that people who are not vaccinated against the virus were also 4.6 times likelier to get infected.

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky on Friday said, "Looking at cases over the past two months when the Delta variant was the predominant variant circulating in this country, those who were unvaccinated were about four and a half times more likely to get COVID-19, over 10 times more likely to be hospitalized, and 11 times more likely to die from the disease." 

The CDC's latest data, published as three studies in the agency's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, are also the latest sign that booster shots could become necessary in the coming months for many.

The study was conducted as the Delta variant became the dominant strain of the virus in the USA, where the CDC examined outcomes among patients who visited medical facilities' urgent care departments, emergency rooms as well as veterans' hospitals. 

Study conducted on 600K people in US

The CDC says this new study spans more than 600,000 people from over 13 jurisdictions and of the major conclusions, the CDC found that unvaccinated populations were over 10 times more likely to be hospitalized than vaccinated

CDC, Director Walensky further said the data shows that the vaccine works, “The bottom line is this, we have the scientific tools we need to turn the corner on this pandemic, vaccination works and will protect us from the severe complications of COVID-19.”

The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center said early Saturday that it had recorded 223.9 million global COVID-19 cases and 4.6 million deaths. The center said 5.6 billion vaccine doses have been administered.

    Of course what do you expect them to say? They want to vaccinate the whole world and begin their Human 2.0 mandate. AI will keep all vaccinated in line with the program of ONe World Order program

    You steady pushing this BS Govt vaccination agenda. Why you ain't say Unvaccinated people with pre-existing conditions? Obesity, diabetes, cancer, auto immune disorders, respiratory disease, etc.

    Millions of Unvaccinated healthy people have contracted the virus and survived. Stop yuh ish

      Wouldn't it be more simple and honest to just say unvaccinated ppl than list all the different types of unvaccinated ppl? The facts are the facts. There are also ppl who presume their health who have died. Or do you not care about the lives of those lost. Or is it that you feel you are strong and healthy therefore worthy of life while the others are not. I'm sure someone with obesity, diabetes, cancer, auto immune disorders, respiratory disease has done you some good in life before today. Don't be evil thinking you're being right. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Millions have died and millions have lived.

        Over 3000 supposedly had covid in July end of June. Supposedly they were unvaccinated and that's why. According to government. Well didn't they recover and survive? Except the 36 who most if not all bad the conditions I mentioned before. Exactly my point.

        Let's be honest and stop this scare tactic and fear mongering approach govt't has been using. This is why we can't trust none of them. They are too deceitful

          Seems like you're only focusing on the illness part and not the death part. Haven't you ever known a healthy person to get illness? Sclerosis, or Cancer maybe. I knew a healthy active slim person who walked the hill everyday & exercised daily yet still they were in the hospital sick like a dog fighting to breathe. Sickle Cell people are skinny but they are compromised. It's about preventing deaths to the compromised not minor illness to those who can breathe enough to fight it off. We have to think about others too. This shouldn't be difficult to understand.

          Lb, you are using an invalid premise (pre-existing health conditions) in your argument. We must assume that BOTH vaccinated and unvaccinated who got the disease had pre-existing health conditions. We must also assume that of the ["supposed", as you say] 3000, BOTH vaccinated and unvaccinated recovered.

          So now, all things being equal, MORE unvaccinated died from complications related to the disease. Are you going to say that is a "supposed" fact too?

    Scare tactics and instilling fear may catch some. Hear lies again. Unvaccinated this unvaccinated that. CDC had to come up with something so hear it is. These people and others like them have their place reserved in the lake of fire. Everyday the script change with CDC. That FACT is these vaccines don’t work. If they did vaccinated people would be protected from this virus but we are seeing them contracting Covid daily and being hospitalized and dying. Who are they (CDC) to say vaccine will keep you from dying and or hospitalized. This is one of their biggest lies ever. You all keep up with your deception God knows and sees all. Plus He (God) is angry with the wicked everyday.

        Do you know that even if you took the first dose and die from Covid, They label you as an Unvaxed??? How do you know if the people who died in the BVI were Unvaxed(took no dose), When the Government definition of Unvaxed are those who took one dose??. In Israel you are label Unvax if you don't take the 3rd dose. Wake Up People!!

    I have always been pro choice when it comes to this vaccine. More and more this reinforces my stance. The CDC has now changed its definition of vaccine and vaccination as they are realizing that the vaccines are not preventing infection and transmission but they do reduce the likelihood of hospitalization and death. It therefore means that we all need to adhere to the basic protocols of masking in enclosed spaces, social distancing and proper hygiene. This should help in decreasing infection and transmission. Also work on building up your immunity through diet, exercise etc. Those with co-morbidities may also want to vaccinate to protect themselves. Booster up as 6-8 months the immunity wanes. It will be like the flu shot.

    The problem is that it's not that simple as Governments across the world are trying to find ways to mandate. Biden just did. Guyana does not permit unvaccinated nationals to return to their own country. Right here in the BVI people are being fired for their stance. This is blatant wickedness. What they fail to realize that these travel, work, entertainment mandates will only harden the stance of the unvaccinated and lead to more distrust and people will try to circumvent the system. It will also create more division among the people at a time when we need to unite.

    99% of people survive the virus. Sho why not focus on encouraging the most vulnerable to vaccinate? Why not focus on treatments? Healthy living campaigns? When all is said and done we still have to live together but I am afraid many will be bitter as they were ostracized, victimized because they chose to exercise the right to choose what goes in their bodies. Creating a bitter society.

      I was feeling your post until you lost me when you said vaccine reduce the likelihood of hospitalization and death. Death is no respecter of man woman boy or girl. We all have an appointment with death and trust me this is one appointment we all can’t run from. We need to stop fooling folks that taking the vaccine we won’t die. It is the biggest lie from the pit of hell.

        I never said that if folks take the vaccine they won't die. I simply said it reduces your chance of hospitalization and death.

        We agree to disagree but my perspective is that people can die before their appointed time depending on the way they live their lives. Even the Bible says " Honor your Mother and Father so your days would be long on the earth".

    The AZ vaccine has been available in the BVI for over 7 months now. If you are not vaccinated by now then you are blatantly selfish, a danger to the whole BVI community and a future host for the delta variant until it either kills you or cripples you with long covid for the remainder of your short life. No excuses, get vaccinated NOW!

      Vaccinated can be hosts and they can transmit and that is the Science!

      Selfish? Really? If the unvaccinated are the ones likely to get covid and die or have long covid then how are they selfish if they refuse to take the jab?

      Quit with these divisive mandates and let the people make their choices. Bullying never achieved anything positive!

    This is soooo funny I swear only a fool won't b able 2 tell there's a hidden agenda behind this vaccination bull.
    Now let's look at this more closer, r these people words is 2 b trusted? First they said if u take the 2 vaccine shots u r covered and can't get covid, then we find out fully vaccinated people r get n covid & dying from it. Secondly, they never mention anything about get n booster shots but we found out this is something that all vaccinated person will have 2 do until they die, uhhh did they say y vaccinated people need 2 take the booster shots? Noppleee!!!
    Let me inform u y, the vaccine shot that poison they put n in ur body kills ur immunity which means ur body can't fight or create any antibody 2 fight off diseases so these booster shots r design with artificial antibodies 2 help ur body fight disease.

    Israel is the highest vaccinated country in the world, they are now seeing the highest number of daily cases hospitalizations and deaths all fully vaccinated. These new vaccines only lasts for 6 months 8 months at best and compromises your entire immune system against other viruss and variants of the covid 19 virus . What would happen in the next 18 months . 3 booster shots after. ? What will happen of you continue to pump your body full of a vaccine original designed as a 2 dose vaccine ?
