Study: Unvaccinated People 29 Times As Likely To Be Hospitalized By COVID

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a new study which shows people who are unvaccinated against COVID-19 are 29.2 times as likely to be hospitalized due to the virus versus those who are fully vaccinated.

From HuffPost:

The study, which looked at infections among more than 43,000 people in Los Angeles from May through most of July, puts a clear number on something public health officials around the country have been broadcasting for months: People who are vaccinated against COVID-19 drastically lower their chances of suffering any serious symptoms from the virus.

The study also found that infection rates among the unvaccinated were nearly five times those of the fully vaccinated, shedding further light on how the vaccines ward off serious illness in those who have breakthrough cases.
