The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has released data on COVID-19 infections in 30% of the U.S. population. Among them, as for the death rate as of August 2021, it was found that the risk of death among non-vaccinated people was 11 times higher than that of those who were vaccinated.
If you look at the CDC data disclosure page, you can see a graph of the number of COVID-19 infections collected from April to August 2021. According to this, as of September 15, the number of infected people per 100,000 people was 736.72 people who were not vaccinated and 121.40 people who were vaccinated. Also, as of September 15, the mortality rate per 100,000 people was 12.85% for those who were not vaccinated and 1.13% for those who completed the vaccine. Based on these data, the CDC found that unvaccinated people had a 6.1 times higher risk of infection and an 11.3 times higher risk of death than those who had been vaccinated.
By vaccine, the number of infections per 100,000 people as of August 15 was 171.92 for Janssen vaccine, 135.64 for Pfizer, and 86.28 for Moderna. Also, looking at the relationship between vaccine type and mortality, Janssen was 2.63%, Pfizer 1.37%, and Moderna 0.69%. Pfizer vaccinated people have twice the mortality rate than moderna vaccinated people.
In line with the release of the data, the CDC said it was working with many regions to lead several studies of vaccine effectiveness and continue to monitor the impact of breakthrough infections. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which leads infection control in the U.S., said it’s important to get vaccinated to limit the spread of infection, even for the safety of yourself, your family, and the good of your community.
