Club Updates – May 4
Unvaccinated people no longer account for the overwhelming majority of U.S. coronavirus deaths, reports The Washington Post. Forty-two percent of COVID-19 deaths in January and February were from vaccinated individuals, compared to just 23% of the dead in September during the delta surge. This is in part due to waning vaccine protection and COVID-19 rates among the elderly and immunocompromised. Despite the news, unvaccinated individuals are far more vulnerable to severe coronavirus cases.
