Covid-19 vaccines are failing and spectacularly.
Ontario reported January 18 that the fully vaccinated made up 77.8%, or 5,439 cases, of Ontario’s 7,085 Covid cases, and the unvaccinated just 15.3%, or 1,087 cases, of the total number. With 82% of all Ontarians aged 5+ fully vaccinated and 12% unvaccinated, Ontario quadrupled the previous high in cases back in April with 18,445 cases January 1, 2022.
The fully vaccinated are getting infected at a rate of 65.22 per 100,000 cases compared to 54.06 per 100K for the unvaccinated.
Despite clear and indisputable epidemiological evidence showing that the fully vaccinated are driving Ontario’s record wave of cases, the govt and public health continue to undermine their own credibility with the misleading daily messages that Covid-19 vaccines are “the best way out of the pandemic.” The vaccines have failed so miserably that Ontario increased restrictions again January 5, reverting to Step 2 from Step 3 of its reopening plan.
The vaccine is also failing to provide protection against severe outcomes as the vaccinated make up more than 75%, or 2,245 cases, of the 2,984 hospitalizations. The fully vaccinated make up 68.7%, or 2,050 cases, of hospitalizations compared to the 24.8%, or 739 cases, for the unvaccinated. The province continues to try and mislead the public by stating statistics that imply the vaccines are working, for example, the unvaccinated are 3x more likely to end up in hospital. In reality, the only measure of the “vaccine’s” success, or lack of, is that it is failing to keep the fully vaccinated out of the hospital, as touted. Period.
The vaccinated are also filling up ICUs with 213 of the 408 total cases cases being vaccinated.
