301b7e3b

The majority of COVID-19 deaths are among the vaccinated, which shows that vaccines worsen COVID-19.

COVID-19 deaths are rare among the fully vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing death and serious illness.

The Daily Expose, a medical misinformation platform, published an article on September 14 titled, "13 reasons why you should not allow your child to get the COVID-19 Vaccine." The article's seventh reason is that "Public Health England Data shows the majority of Covid-19 Deaths are among the Vaccinated and suggests that the Vaccines worsen disease."

In August, Dr. Christian Yates, a senior lecturer in mathematical biology at Bath University, wrote an article for the BMJ about how most COVID-19 deaths were then among the vaccinated. He stated that this was to be expected and later told AFP that, "if 100 percent of the population were vaccinated then all Covid-related deaths would occur in the vaccinated."

In recent days, the BBC has reported that, according to data from the Office for National Statistics, "Out of more than 51,000 Covid deaths in England between January and July 2021, only 256 occurred after two doses," stating that, according to data from the Office of National Statistics, "Covid deaths rare among the fully vaccinated."

The claim that vaccines worsen COVID-19 disease is false. As the CDC has reported, COVID 19-vaccines are effective as they can keep you from getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. They also prevent you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19 and can protect those around you. The CDC has also reported that unvaccinated people face 11 times the risk of death from Delta variant when compared to vaccinated people.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
