The ISS dossier: every 98 unvaccinated there is a contagion. Their risk of being hospitalized was 10.4 times higher

In the last month there have been no vax people admitted to intensive care 24 with less than 40 years of and, 165 between 40 and 60 years, 318 between 60 and 80 years. In total it makes 507. In the same period and in the same ward for seriously ill no vaccinated patients under 40 years entered, 25 were instead in the range between 40 and 60 years, 191 between 60 and 80 years, for a total of 216, less than half.

The risk threshold

The epidemiological curve rises and the distance between those who are immunized and those who have chosen not to be vaccinated widens. The risk of contracting Covid-19 increases by 3.8 times for those not vaccinated compared to the vaccinated with a full course within 5 months, while the risk for those vaccinated over 5 months after the second dose is 2.1 times higher. Even more indicative are the numbers on hospitalizations: The risk of 10.4 times higher for the unvaccinated than for the vaccinated within 5 months of the second dose and becomes 4.8 times over 5 months. A percentage that is confirmed when examining the data of people who ended up in intensive care and those who died.

The report

The data collected and analyzed in the last month available – that goes from 15 October to 14 November – the specialists of the Higher Institute of Health photograph the progress of the epidemic and confirm the need to undergo the third dose to have effective coverage from the virus. But they also demonstrate the positive effects of the two doses compared to those who have decided not to protect themselves. An effect that begins to wane after five months and has convinced the government to anticipate the possibility of accessing the recall for all age groups. What is the effectiveness of vaccines emerges clearly by calculating the percentage of infected, hospitalized and dead per 100 thousand inhabitants. But even the absolute numbers give an eloquent picture of what is happening.

The contagions

According to the latest bulletin in one month there were 75,512 infections
out of 7,409,599 unvaccinated people. It means we have one case of Covid in every 98 not vaccinated. Positive cases among full cycle vaccinates over 5 months there were 44,023 cases out of 11,407,859 Italians. It means there one Covid case for every 259 immunized. The effect between remains very good those who have not yet exceeded 5 months since the last administration: 82,755 positives in the last month are therefore out of 31,622,279 immunized with double dose, therefore one case out of 382.

The hospitalizations

Even the numbers of hospitalized in the medical area they mark the difference: in the under 40 group there were 496 no vaxes, 114 vaccinated for 5 months, 49 over 5 months; in the range between 40 and 60 years there were 1,264 no vaxes, 259 vaccinated for 5 months, 178 over five months. The gap is also high for those aged between 60 and 80 because no vaxes were 318, 104 vaccinated within 5 months, 670 over 5 months. A percentage in fact equal to zero given that the number of people who received the second dose less than 5 months ago of 31,622,270, and that which exceeds 5 months now of 11,407,859 people.

The victims

Very often those who defend the choice not to get vaccinated declare that the coronavirus does not kill. The data from the Higher Institute of Health show what it is the gap between who is protected and who is not .
Among the no vax there are eight dead who were less than 40 years old, only one among the vaccinated; 54 were the victims who were between 40 and 60 years old and had chosen not to get immunized, 24 among those who had received at least one dose of the vaccine. Finally, 221 deaths in the age group between 60 and 80 years without coverage, 175 those who had undergone at least one dose.

The third doses

The third dose demonstrates how much the potency of the vaccine increases in all age groups. If the same data on the progress of the epidemic are in fact compared with those who have already made the recall, it turns out that up to the age of eighty there was only one death, three people entered intensive care and out of 1,594,076 Italians who have already received the booster only 1,710 tested positive, that is 0.1%. In fact, experts underline how the effectiveness of vaccines passes from 73.5% within five months al 43,9% in immunized with full cycle for over five months. In the case of severe illness the gap for much smaller because the efficacy for vaccinated with full course from less than 5 months equal to 92,5%, while of the84,8% for those immunized with a full cycle from over 5 months, compared to the unvaccinated. Results that convince the government to further enhance the campaign especially after the emergence of the new Omicron variant from South Africa.
