Vaccines not preventing Covid deaths

Reading time: 1 minute

Vaccinations aren’t preventing Covid-19 deaths, a new study has discovered.

People who have been vaccinated are as likely as the unvaccinated to die from a Covid infection, researchers from Norway’s Institute of Public Health have found.

They assessed the progress of 2,361 Covid patients admitted to general wards and intensive care units (ICUs); 70 of them were fully vaccinated and 183—8 percent of the total—had received both shots of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

Although the vaccinated spent less time in hospital and were around half as likely to need ICU care, there was no difference in the rate of deaths between the vaccinated and unvaccinated, they found.

Around 84 percent of Norwegians had been double-vaxxed by last September.
