Throughout August, the risk of dying from Covi19 was 11 times higher for unvaccinated adults than for fully vaccinated adults in the United States, according to new data published by the CDC.
Unvaccinated adults faced a six times higher risk of testing positive for Covid-19 throughout the month, and in the last week of August, the risk of being hospitalized was nearly 19 times higher for unvaccinated adults than fully vaccinated adults.
Some states and local jurisdictions have recently started publishing Covid-19 case, death and hospitalization rates by vaccination status on their own dashboards, and the CDC has been working with health departments to link case surveillance data with immunization information systems for their own analysis.
