Covid vaccinations keep people alive

Vaccination for COVID-19 won’t necessarily prevent you from catching the virus.  It won’t necessarily stop you from infecting other people.  It won’t even guarantee you won’t be harmed by the virus.

And of course there are good reasons to be suspicious of the big drug companies

But the facts show that, unless you’re a special case, vaccinations will definitely reduce the odds of you dying from the disease.


How do death rates from COVID-19 differ between people who are vaccinated and those who are not? by Eduard Mattieu and Max Roser for Our World in Data.  This is the most complete survey I could find, but I was unable to extract charts from their web site.  Below are some of the charts I did find.

    And yet, if you go to the source of the European chart, some idiot was commenting on how it proves we only need to vaccinate the weak and elderly. There are people who will only believe what their echo chamber encourages them to believe, even in the face of overwhelming evidence otherwise. There is a very real cult of ignorance that has evolved into a sort of religion, complete with articles of faith and required dogma.
